Try using some partition manager to mark the partition as active

I tried doing both: marking the partition as active and using the .bat file. None of them work. Could the problem be that I want to install Mac OS on my SSD that still has Windows on it? (Once I get installer running fill format drive)

You should be able to boot the installer, no matter if there's already an OS installed in the target drive.

Did you configure the BIOS properly to boot from USB?

Edit #3: Installed Mac OS X and it was working OK (apart from Sound, LAN), then I installed a DSDT for my motherboard. Restarted and now I am getting a kernel panic. How can I remove that DSDT. I am trying to boot in with both USB and SSD but none work. Should a do a fresh install?
Thanks!

I don't get it, how did you manage to boot the installer?

Booting from USB should ignore DSDT.aml in SSD. You can also boot from SSD typing DSDT=no.

Never use DSDT from someone else, patch your original one instead.

That's the first time I hear this. How can I patch a DSDT myself?

There are plenty of topics about it in the DSDT forum

Thanks!

Is there a way of recovering from a Kernel Panic?

It depends on the cause of the KP. You can boot the installer and use the terminal (utilities menu) to fix it.

Post a picture of the KP screen.

EDIT: seems like everything is working now. shutdown and restart after I created my DSDT. My only problem is, that when I start my computer, I have to use these Bootflags to make it boot: -v -f -F ncpi=x3000. How do I add these to go automatically?

I also think that is a problem, when I boot from USB I have the Chameleon bootloader (displays at top, also the logo is a Chameleon), but when I boot from SSD the logo of the Bootloader is from Unibeast or TonyMac (you know that red thingy, an apple or something), which I don't know which bootloader is. How do I configure the boot settings of the Chimera bootloader (if it is that)?

You can set the flags in org.chameleon.Boot.plist using Chameleon Wizard. I don't know about tonymac stuff.
