I tried to install Niresh’s OS X 10.8.2 with the EasyBCD method on my PC, But everytime I try i stuck at the Apple logo and a stop-sign appears or if I use amd -v I get sill waiting for root device.
It’s the same with amd -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes -v debug=8 ahcidisk=1 -v.

PC Specs:
AMD Athlon X4 630
Gigabyte M720-US3
Power Color Readon HD5550

But how to put extensions in? Do I have to unpack and then repack the ISO?
I tried it with: amd -f -v UseKernelCache=No -v debug=8 ahcidisk=1 -v and amd -v debug=8 ahcidisk=1
.Everytime it’s the same "sill waiting for root device". But I’m confused about your file, what should you do with it?
Or is it better to install OS X on a USB drive?

I’ve installed it on my USB drive. But if I’m trying to install my computer just reboots.
How do I flash the AMD-kernel?

AMD Development, download the patched Kernel for AMD and change the original kernel in your USBInstaller with the patched AMD Kernel

At the moment my graphics card in my PC is broken so I tried to install it on my Laptop (Toshiba C660D). I boot with amd_kernel npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No. The installer says that the installer couldn't start OS X from the disk.
At the restart I boot with "Kernel Cache"\amd_kernel npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No. The Laptop reboots after some time.
