Okay I can install Leopard fine on this computer, but once i try getting Snow Leopard on it I can't get anywhere, it never boots to the installation screen, it just hangs. I've tried 10.6.6 Hazard, and Iatkos S3 v2, nothing.

I've read other people getting sucess on this machine.

well you could be more specific.Give it some time.I have seen it sometimes take 10-15 mins to reach the boot screen(which is really uncommon it should not take that long),but i think it somewhat depends on your hardware,give it some time.see where it ends.take a picture and post it here.then someone would be able to help you.

I thought the pics of the specs from dxdiag would be specific enough, any tips to be more specific? I've waited 10 minutes but nothing changes. Now I should take a picture with -f flags right? Or is it -v flag...

I'm trying DMGs now instead of distros from my Leopard installation, but I get this message.

I've tried watching tutorials of installing that suggest editing the OSInstall.mpkg but I get this message.

Quick question, does Snow Leopard need to be installed on a GUID partition? I can only dual boot Win7 with MBR.
