Hi there folks!

So ive been looking into installing any version of OSX with my new PC that ive built, i have concerns now that im into my 3rd day of relentless failure
im crying out for some help, ive tried lion and leopard different versions of each, i fear it could be my hardware, as practically no component on my computer
is listed in the reccomended build page.

(links to screens of my system are below along with the panic screenshot i get everytime!)

Ive tried so many methods of installation, used legacy booters, AMD hackintosh builds, VMware and virtualbox but to no avail.
I had an early copy of snow leapoard running on vmware, but nothing worked so it was just usless.

Any pointers or any could of help is greatly appreciated! Even the slap in the face "You will never run mac" will suffice and put me out of my mysery.

Thanks!
Daniel

what is your motherboard? give us some more info on ur system... also dont bother trying lion as it wont work with amd yet (no legacy kernel so far).. try retail snow leo, iatkos and snow leo by director A.K (thepiratebay have all)

My video card is listed in the screenshots (radeon HD 6770) along with my cpu-z screenshot. Both network and sound are realtek.

So all i need to do really is just try again but with the Nawcom bootloader?, I had a copy with the pre installed drivers for AMD but that didnt work either, used a legacy ##### too. Why is nawcom's bootloader different ?

nawcom is better, detects system way better than ##### legacy and will prob be the best for AMD + retail snow leopard 10.6.. try it ;) wont cost u anything and should work hehe

after installing, u need to install the bootloader (chamaleon/chimera). if u dont, u will only be able to boot with nawcom cd

Did you try iAtkos? I successfully installed Leopard with version v7, however I could not make my graphics card working (I had one small resolution mode only during and after installation).
Now I try to use iAtkos L2, but everything freezes right on a grey screen after booting.
What method you would recommend for newbie like I'm?

retail installation of lion! google it for the method (usb method is better). for enabling ur graphics, u can try chimera/chamaleon (last versions) with graphicsenabler=yes

You mean ##### + Lion DVD method? Will that recognize my hardware better than IAtkos Lion version?
(Sorry Shinodan for hijacking your thread)

##### + retail lion dvd or u can make a bootable usb to install lion (search google, i dont think i'm allowed to give details about the application that does that, but there is at least 2) it will perform a clean installation of lion.. then to make stuff work, install the chimera and kexts u need. its the best way to have a good osx installation

kexts.com is a good place to start and the app to install is kext utility... also there is some post install tools as ####### (cant say the full name here, sorry) that will install chimera and has a list of several kexts.. u should google and install the kexts that are related to ur motherboard

My thread hijacked you :P

the best way still is the retail one, more smooth.. but sure, if iatkos works, then u should be fine.. dont forget to check amd patch/legacy kernel on customization

The only iAtkos that works for me is v7 (Leopard), and id did not recognized my AMD 5770 at all. Whenever I try to install Mult****ast to upload drivers, I was not able to reboot it anymore :(
Same think after making an update.
Is there a command for my card to work right away? On wiki website I found that:

Device ID-0x68B8 OSX 10.6.7
###### 3.2 ##### 2.7/ ATI drivers from 3.4 using Notshy's method
FrameBuffer=Vervet / ATI Experimental
Chameleon Boot - ###### 3.3.0 - GraphicsEnabler=Yes - 64 bit=YES!!


How should I use it?
Can you tell me what options I should pick in iAtkos for my hardware to work?

Which version you will get? L1, L2?

yes, nawcom will add the retail fixes itself such as legacy kernel.

he cant use iatkos l1 nor l2 because he is on amd system and on such system he cant install lion yet, just snow leopard.

so for ur issue i suggest u to reinstall the system using the retail lion as ####### works better with retail installations! after installing with retail method, run ########, install the kexts u need + chimera and set boot flag to graphicsenabler=yes and u should get graphics

I see... now, before even asking about installation of kexts, chimera and setting a bootflag I need to know what nawcom is. Is it a new method?

nawcom is a boot cd just like #####... u can try it as well.. nawcom is universal (amd + intel) and ##### is intel only, thats why i said to him to use nawcom, because he uses amd
