My specs are:

AMD FX 4100 QuadCore
nVidia GTX 550 Ti
Asus M5A 78L-M LX V2
8GB Ram
SSD HD

I'm trying to install anything from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion I'm not too fussed I will take any that is willing to work.

Obviously I want QE/CI working.

I followed this guide:
http://www.osx86.net...uccessfull.html

I got the Snow Lepoard installer to work I booted to desktop then restarted and I get an instant *black screen* when trying to boot again.... No matter what I do.

Even if I install the Combo update and the new kernel I still get a black screen trying to boot (this is with any options (tested everything) including graphicsenenabler=no).

So nothing I did would make Snow Lepoard boot BACK to desktop after a restart and -v just goes black screen with no information on what went wrong.

So I assume that guide is incompatible with my system.

Does anybody have any guide/advance that would match my system specs?

I managed to successfully get OSX Mountain Lion working on my laptop as shown here:

But the desktop with its AMD seems like impossible nothing I do seems to work lol.

If you have any ideas that would make it work with my specs let me know!

Thanks :)

Can your Pandora's Box handle a Lion AMD? (If so does it require any special switches/bios for my hardware?)

What would you suggest guide/software/approach wise?

With Snow Lepoard I got it to install by setting busratio=20 -force64 colors=32 -v rd(0,0)/Extra/modbin_kernel (of course it never really worked after that beyond the first welcome screen)
