Trying to install 10.6 from retail DVD to Intel D945GCLF2

07 December 2009 - 08:54 PM

I have an intel D945GCLF2 system (atom N330). I have a retail snow leopard DVD.

I have tried the lifehacker "install snow leopard no hacking required" method. I got the DVD image copied to my USB drive, but it doesn't boot.

I have tried the method described here: http://doctorevil305...hackintosh.html

this method seems to be intended to be used with 10.5. I get the boot132 CD booted, pop in the snow leopard DVD, and it seems like it starts reading it, but hangs at "loading Darwin/x86"

Has anyone gotten 10.6 running on this hardware?

newbie is bewildered

I've been reading various walk-throughs, how-tos, etc and they all seem to be based on the assumption that you have access to a working OSX machine to begin with.

How do I install OSX86 without having any OSX machine?

FWIW, I have no working Windows machines, either, though I can get access to one if necessary. I do have several working Linux machines on site with me.

I would like to install snow leopard on a box with the Intel BOXD945GCLF2 motherboard (Mini-ITX w/ Atom 330 processor).

I have an apple store nearby, so if buying an installation DVD would help I can do that.

If it would be easier to start with 10.5.x, I am willing to do that as well.

Installing from a USB thumbdrive would be ideal (the machine I want to install onto has no DVD drive, though I could hook one up temporarily if needed).

Anyone who can just get me started with a how-to that addresses my situation, I would appreciate it.
