[DISCLAIMER]This guide is currently a "Work in Progress" since there are still some problems, so look for other solutions than those described in the guide to try and obtain an optimization better! Any advice / suggestions / criticism is welcome! Another thing: I am Italian, so sorry for my bad english[/ DISCLAIMER]

What we want to do is install Snow Leopard Retail on our beautiful Gaming Notebook Asus G51J/Jx.

The differences between the two notebooks could lead to small variations on installing the kext, as I have in my possession only G51Jx, I will base my installation on that, and add gradually their steps to the old model with the suggestions of who is in possession of G51J.

The main differences between the 2 models are:

G51J -) Intel PM55
G51Jx -) Intel HM55

Video Card:
G51J -) 260m Nvidia GTX 1GB GDDR3
G51Jx -) Nvidia 360m GTS 1GB GDDR5

G51J -) 2 HDD slot
G51Jx -) 1 slot HDD

Other differences are irrelevant, given that the main problems during installation are due to factors mentioned above.


1) Snow Leopard Retail DVD
The original Apple DVD costs only $ 29 and allows us to install Snow Leopard.

2) An empty partition on your HDD
You need to create an empty partition to install Snow Leopard!

3) Empire EFI Boot Disk
The DVD of Snow Leopard will not start without the help of this ever precious Empire EFI! This is the latest version for Core i7 Mobile, extract and burn it into a CD one of the 2 version contained into the rar.

4) 10.6.2 Combo Update
Adds further stability to the system and update to the latest version of Snow Leopard

5) Netkas' Nvidia Injector
Lets start the operating system in 1920x1080 resolution

Note: Snow Leopard installation requires that the HDD is partitioning in GUID, but our Asus are MBR formatted. For those unwilling (like me) completely reformat the HDD goes below!

---- OPTIONAL -----

For those wishing to install using MBR partition must also have the following things:

1) A Mac or Hackintosh where is installed Leopard / Snow Leopard
Is essential a OSX system, because we must use Disk Utility to Restore the DVD of Snow Leopard into a USB key and add the SnowLoader.

2) A USB key 8 or 16 GB
We will fully charge the contents of the DVD-DL Snow Leopard on the USB Key, so we need a large USB Key!

3) Matsca09's SnowLoader
It allows us to install the HDD with MBR partitioning



1) Insert the Empire EFI cd when the notebook boot.
2) Wait for the Empire EFI screen, then eject the CD and insert Snow Leopard Retail DVD. Press F5 and select the Snow Leopard installation DVD.
3) Wait until the Snow Leopard installation boot up. Select your language.
4) Choose Utility-Disk Utility. Choose the empty partition on your HDD.


Snow Leopard on Asus G51J/JX

Hi guys,
I am trying to install a retail copy of Snow Leopard on my G51JX, the installation got fine with Empire Efi, but when I try to boot the SL partition it stucks at:

SAM Multimedia: READ or WRITE error

How can I solve this problem??

EDIT: I think that this problem is due to the DVD reader .. it is a TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633C
