Summarizing all this thread into 3 simple guides(tutorials). [The guides are already here, i just revised them a little, to get the focus in just one place.]
1. Retail Mac OS X 10.6 install
2. Retail Mac OS X 10.7 install
3. Creating a dsdt file
(reminder: use BetterZip to unpack in OS X)

I have followed your perfect projectx instructions and finally i managed to boot osx10.6.
However, the bootloader made some problems for me.
The problem was a loop of restarts after the bios screen.
After disabling Cores - intel speedstep tech- VT and enabling AHCI finally Bootcd worked and installed retail MacosX 10.6.
But some how installation freeze multiple times at `28 minutes remaining`.
After i used -x and busratio=20 (dont now the function i tried all possible combinations) (I think -x is safe mode) finally OSx booted as in your guide.
After hundreds of kernel panics and unsuccessful installation tries finally i had a working osx. Thanks for your guide. Perfect job.
My goal is to have Lion 10.7.2 with QE/CI. I think it is possible with ATI 6870.
I have some problems by following your guide after that point.
At 15. Step i installed Chameleon on first partition and
\Copy the content of the Extra folder, from needed files folder to the Extra folder on root (root -(where Mac OS X is installed)- partition), just copy it there/
However there is no Extra folder in needed files folders (There is Extensions Folder)
The extra folder is in SnowLeopard/pack1065/extra. Should i copy the Extensions folder to root/system/extensions?
What is this 1065 folder and (it is an update i think) and how to install these?
I`m stuck at this point.
Some how i installed ethernet and sound using kext helper.
My questions are:
What is the correct BIOS settings
Any info for the Ati HD 6870 Card installation with QE/CI
At step 17. Update - via official apple software update? (I did so and system never restarted again?)
Thanks for your help.
