Following the tutorial by hecabe,
I have made a working Snow Leopard 10.6.4 LiveDVD.
But I want to do something more.
Grub4dos has a feature called "ISO emulation", by which one can boot from iso directly.
When I boot my computer, I got grub4dos menu, then I typed the following commands:
title Snow Leopard LivDVD ISO
map --mem (hd0,0)/ISO/Mac-Live.iso (hd32)
map (hd32) (hd0) #with this line or without
it continues to boot from Mac-Live.iso, but finally it stops with a message
"still waiting for root device" , and repeat this message again and again.
My question : Is any way to boot directly from Snow Leopard LiveDVD iso?
(I think we may modify some files...)
The reason for which I want to boot from iso are:
1. I don't have a built-in DVD rom. I tested the LiveDVD by an external DVD rom.
2. Booting from iso is much faster that booting from DVD rom.
3. I can use LiveUSB, but I prefer to use LiveDVD iso, because I like grub4dos.
With ISO emulation, I don't have create many partitions. (I have many bootable ISO,
for example, BartPE, Win7PE, Ubuntu...etc)

Have you find a solution?
No. I will post a screenshot later. But I don't think the screenshot helps anything.

Still waiting for root device arises from the system's inability to find a mountable block device--most of the time this happens because there isnt a kext loaded to take care of the hardware where the disk is connected (ie, no diskcontroller kext). Its possible(worrisome) that grub4dos is doing some sata controller emulation and u simply dont have the right kext to handle the emulated device.
