I got a retail copy of Snow Leopard 10.6.3

 

I changed the mach_kernel to legacy kernel and dumped the image to a USB bootable drive with clover using Bootdisk Utility.

 

I can boot the disk, get all the way to the GUI screen.  but it stops at the grey screen with a spinning wheel.  With no error messages... I have not a clue on where to start in resolving this issue.  any ideas/help is welcome.

16gb corsair vengency at 1600mhz (might be underclocked)

AMD Radeon HD 6670

 

SATA - AHCI

It actually loads the GUI with the mouse cursor... but after a few seconds it goes to the color wheel and does nothing.  left it alone for an hour or so... nothing.
