Thank you. And what about the RAM and Display?

How about using google to find out 'how to install a kext'?!
It is very simple!

RAM should be detected automatically by any revision of chameleon 2.1, if not, enter it into smbios.plist manually.
Again, google is your friend.

Seriously, YOU need to do this if you ever want a working installation. Relying on others to do the work for you will not get you far!

That kext is installed in /Extra/Extensions, so simply drag the kext into /Extra/Extensions (with / being your OS X partition) and run Kext Utility.

A little late here, but I have a Core i3 Inspiron 580 MT (minitower), and have had a 99.99% Snow Leopard retail 10.6.8 installed. My only issue was DVI->HDMI not working with my crappy 9800GT. The rest was perfect, including sleep and networking etc. You can find my guides for non-retail and retail here:

Hope this helps you get a 100% hackintosh. I might look into getting a well supported card (Fermi? 440?) soon.

9800 GT is perfectly supported. If you want help I can help you (you might want to create another thread or PM, though).

Be careful with the newer nVidias; only a few are supported in SL (say the GTX 260), but some of the other ones (GTX 580, for example) require Lion.

Wireless still didn't work for some reason. Am I doing something wrong?

I tried your tutorial in the past (A bit hard to read really. D:), but the after installing, the OS would never boot up.

You are going to need an edited iO80211Family.kext. Upload that kext here (it's in /System/Library/Extensions)

What version of SL are you running again?

Well, left this a long time ago and just gave up. This is almost 100x harder than even Linux. Decided to possibly try again. =/
