For the sweet instalation you will need
Seprate HDD fr mac installation
Nawcom bootcd (better u have it writed on a CD)
Mac 10.6.3 retail version DVD (p.s. u can find it on google)
Mac 10.6.8 Combo Update (can find it on either apple website or google it)
##### 3.7.3
Nawcom's new 10.6.8v2 (http://blog.nawcom.c....6.8.v2.pkg.zip)

Successfully Installed on
Amd Phenom x4 925
4gb ram
Ati Radeon HD 5770

First make sure to set boot priority to CD/DVD rom
Boot With Nawcom CD
Follow the guidence appear on the main screen of the nawcom boot loader
once the bootloader is booter swap the boot CD with the Mac 10.6.3 Retail DVD
make a clean insatll on a Seperate HDD of 10.6.3
make sure while installing go the the Costomized insatll option which comes before the install option
and clear the field for languages and printers kernel field and the Voodoo PS2 option as
Voodoo PS2 nolonger works and might giveyou Kernel Panic
installation will take up to 20/30min
Now you have done installing Mac 10.6.3 on ur HDD sucessfully

Now its time to update Mac from 10.6.3 to 10.6.8
WARNING
DO NOT use mac's default software updater as ur Hackintosh will Crash/give u Kernel panic or fail to boot
Use the DMG file downloaded from apple's website or u found on google (10.6.8 combo update)
mount the dmg file and u will get a pop-up folder with 10.6.8 combo update pkg file in it
just install it....installation will take up to 15/20min after its done will give u an
option th restart dont restart....PLEASE DONT RESTART
Open ##### and go to the Miscellaneous tab u will find USB Rollback( The update will replace your IOUSBFamily.kext)
and ur usb will work with this...update
go to the Bootloader option u will find Chimera bootloader only install tht as will work fr ati/nvdia on amd pc
LAST BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO DO BEFORE RESTARTING OPEN Nawcom's new 10.6.8v2
AND INSTALL THE PKG FILE WHICH WILL REPLACE THE KERNEL TO LEGACY WILL ALTER UR SLEEP MODE AND WILL NOT GIVE U
PCIE ERROR
After installing Nawcom's PKG restart and u will b able to Boot in to MAC 10.6.8
Sucsess full installation of Mac 10.6.8
No pcie error

Thanks Nawcom Again fr the kernels and PKG....
