Hey guys! :)

I have already got Snow Leopard 10.6.8 installed on my Desktop PC, and now I would like to install it on my laptop. ;)

Laptop data:
Motherboard: Clevo M7X0SU
Front Side Bus: Intel GTL+ (64 Bit)
Chipset: Intel QM67 (afaik)
CPU: Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3200 (2000 MHz)
BIOS: Phoenix BIOS (from 10.02.2008)
Graphics: NVidia GeForce 9300M GS
Disk drive: MAT{censored}A DVD-RAM UJ870QJ ATA Device

The laptops hard disk is connected over SATA and has three partitions:
- On the first partition theres GRUB as bootloader and the Windows 7 partition (NTFS)
- On the second theres the System Reserved partition for Windows 7 (NTFS)
- On the third partiton theres Fedora installed (HFS+ i think)

I am trying to boot with iB00t 3.2 and the retail Snow Leopard 10.6 disk. I want to remove Linux, format its partition and install Mac OSX instead of it. The problem is that it says Still waiting for root device when booting in verbose mode, so I think it does not detect my hard disk drive. AHCI Mode is on!

Do you have any idea what I could do?
Here i've uploaded screenshots of the BIOS, Chimera and what Darwin verbose mode tells me. :)

When using a distribution like iAtkos L2 its exactly the same.

Thank you in advance!

After failing with iAtkos, iDeneb, Kalyway, ######/Retail, SnowOSX and iPC,
i finally found a working distro called "SnowLeo OSX".

Works like a charm!
Look at the bay of the pirates for "

SNOWLEO MAC Snow Leopard OSX86_64 For INTEL/AMD 32/64 MBR/GUID


Happy hacking! :)
