Hello. I followed instructions in this video to install a retail image of Snow Leopard on an AMD system.

I boot from the Empire EFI disk, then take out the disk and insert the 10.6 retail DVD and press F5. Then, after selecting the retail image, a few lines of code (which is unreadable due to white text on a white background) appear and then I am left with a blank screen and no further action. Am I missing something?

I suppose I could install one of the distros and copy the file to another partition, but is there any way to install from a retail DVD image?

My PC is custom-built. The specs are:

Motherboard: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO (AMD 785G chipset)
BIOS: American Megatrends v2005
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2 ghz Black Edition
Memory: 4 GB Adata DDR3
Video Card: ATI Radeon 4830

Does anyone have any ideas? I tried again recently with boot-132 and had the same results.
