Could I use your "DSDT.AML" for my Giga EX58 UD4P motherboard and BFG 9800GX2 1GB graphic card?
u can and should use the dsdt.aml that my script generates...
u should not use other ppl's dsdt.aml files unless their motherboard is exactly the same as urs... even then, if ur hardware config varies even the slightest bit, you will have trouble booting... for ex say that ur running a core2 duo processor and the person u borrowed the DSDT from is running core2 quad, u will not be able to boot with his/her dsdt.aml file...
if u are somehow able to run without the dsdt.aml by using "DSDT=nothing.aml" boot flag, your DSDT may be good enough for snow... most of us havent been that lucky :-)
i have never been able to get my intel dg33fb mobo to work fully without a patched dsdt.aml...

After completing your instructions, my PC runs through the Chameleon startup and runs the last line which is 'Starting Darwin x86' My screen goes blank and then it reboots.
im not familiar with running snow leo on pentium 4 systems... u could try doing:
1. disconnect ur 10.5 drive to see if snow is conflicting with that somehow
2. try using basic graphics by using "GraphicsEnabler=No" boot flag
3. try using "CPUS=1" boot flag
look at a guide for running snow on pentium 4 and see what specific requirements it needs...

Cheers.. worked a treat on my Asus T3-P5G31-Q6600-GeForce 7300 GT all i had to do was put the 64 bit voodoo hda enabler on it and its flawless!
In 10.5 I used a spare hdd I had laying about to install with this util' and my retail 10.6 DVD, then i botted off it and repeated the process on the SATA HDD that 10.5 was on.
attached my DSDT and the HDA enabler I used.
beee aaa uuu tiii fuuuullll :-)
note to others: only use Jabbawok's dsdt.aml if ur config closely matches his...
thanks for sharing Jabbawok!!!

Sorry it does´nt work as so many of the other guides for that matter. Good try though
if u post screenshots of ur error msgs and tell us more about ur hardware config, we might be able to help :-)
then again we might not be :-)
ive tried installing snow for about 15 of my friends and only about 6-7 of those machines were able to run snow off the bat... the rest of them required custom attention and troubleshooting...
digital_dreamer says it best...
