Hi everybody.


I'm looking for help to install snow leopard 10.6.3 on my gateway fx P-7807u laptop.

The way i've been trying is booting with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD, then Insert the Snow Leopard Installation DVD but when i hit the boot it freezes at the gray screen with apple logo.

I've tried with the PCIRootUID=1, PCIRootUID=1 -x, -v -x, CPUS=1 -f -x, but none of them have worked.


The [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] version information is this:

Darxin/x86 boot v5.0.132 - Chameleon v2.0-RC5 r748

Build date: 2011-03-01


My Laptop specs are the following:

Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 @2.4 GHZ

Cache Ram 3072

RAM 4GB (2GB x 2)

Video: NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS Cuda 1 GB

System BIOS Version 9C.17.00 By Phoenix SecureCore


I'm attaching a screenshot from the message it gave me when I tried the boot verbose Installation.

Hope someone can help me, I've been trying to install mac since 2 weeks ago without succes.
