I too am a total novice regarding hackintosh. I have tried all the major boot loaders with retail discs, iAtkos S3 V2, Hazard 10.6.3 but I get stuck in the loading before installer ever starts, usually kernel panics or still waiting on root device errors. System Specs Gigabyte M68M-S2p reg 2.3 AMD Athlon 2 X3 445 3.1GHz processor ATI Radeon 4550 1GB PCI Express with HDMI, DVI & VGA out 4GB Kingston DDR 2 667mhz dual channel ram Seagate 500gb SATA HDD Sony Optiarc 20X Sata DVD-RW LG 24X Sata DVD-RW I get kernel panics or just plain hang ups or system reboots depending on which boot disk & distro I use. I need help pretty much from start to finish to get this installed and configured. It's so different from the normal Windows install or the simple versions of Linux that I can't seem to figure out what commands i need to enter aside from -v and what kernels & kexts to run, how to insert them to make them work at boot during installation and all that. I'd really like to run Snow Leopard so I can use Adobe CS5, Komplete 7, Final Cut Studio 3 and Office 2011 etc. Any help anyone can give me is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
