  1. I have a successful Snow leopard 10.6.4 install on Asus M2A-VM HDMI. BIOS SETTINGS: Set SATA controller to AHCI Optional - Enable Smart monitering (i did this, not sure if necessary) Optional - Disable Legacy USB (i did not do this, not sure if it helps) It was extremely difficult however. I first installed iAtkos v7 (10.5.7) install. make sure to set SAtA controller to AHCI. I enabled SMART monitoring, but i am not sure if thats required. I use http://www.psystar.com/opensource/r1000 for the ethernet driver, or in iAtkos make sure you select Realtek, and i checked all the drivers for SATA/IDE. Consult this list of drivers upon install for iAtkos v7 release : http://c.thewarezscene.org/i/4246/iATKOS+v...+megaupload.png. I also installed with the 9.7 voodoo kernel, left defaults on for anything i dont mention here. I have an Nvidia geforce 8600 GT so I used NVenabler driver which works flawlessly. I'm not sure for ATI, use ATI HD im guessing, but i did not use the onboard driver. try installing with the Realtek drivers also for ethernet support, otherwise use the above kext upon install. use Kext helper v7 to install kexts, thats what i did. if you get the "still waiting for root device" error, make sure you have the HD which you have the install on, set to boot first in Hard Disk priority in the bios. So i used that, and followed this guide to upgrade to 10.5.8 http://www.insanelymac.com/2009/08/update-...osh-osx86-1058/ Then i followed this guide to install snow leopard http://www.taranfx.com/install-snow-leopard-on-amd It was extremely tough to get it to install, i had to install snow leopard on a spare hard drive. but this spare hard drive was only 20 gigs, so i booted into snow leopard on it, and used superduper to copy the hard drive contents to the original hard drive, and thus had snow leopard 10.6.0 on my original HD. to upgrade to 10.6.4 i downloaded the combo update from apple http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1048/...Combo10.6.4.dmg then i downloaded the 10.6.4 kernel http://www.kexts.com/view/415-legacy_kerne..._intel-amd.html install the combo update, but DO NOT RESTART! install the 10.6.4 kernel, THEN reboot. I don't have Restart/Sleep working, but my Snow leopard install is working awesomely otherwise. I now dualboot Windows 7 and Snow leopard.
