  1. Built the following Sandy Bridge rig last night: Silverstone ML03B Micro ATX Case 4x ENERMAX UC-8EB 80mm 14 dBa Case Fans RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W Modular PSU Intel Core i5-2400 3.1Ghz Quad-Core LGA 1155 CPU GIGABYTE GA-H67MA-UD2H-B3 2x G.SKILL Ripjaws 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 1333 RAM ASUS EN210 SILENT 1GB HDMI Video Card LITE-ON Black 4X Blu-Ray Drive Video is connected to EN210 VGA port. HDD is formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and is connected to SATA0 port (6GB/s) and DVD is connected to SATA1 (6GB/s) port. Only 1 4GB stick installed. Setup BIOS per [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Step One. Boot from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], swap in Retail SL 10.6.0 DVD, hit F5, and the Install Disc appears. Then, I hit enter, and the next screen is grey with Apple logo and spinning gear. It sits here for about 5 minutes, then goes to another grey screen and my mouse immediately turns into the spinning rainbow pinwheel of death. It sits like this for a minute or two, and the computer shuts off. To troubleshoot, this is what I've tried: Switched both HDD and DVD to be on SATA2 and SATA3 ports respectfully (3GB/s). On [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] screen, tired both PCIRootUID=1, and PCIRootUID=1 -x, same result as stated above. Enabled 64-bit in BIOS, changed CPU multiplier to 29, changed SATA from IDE to ACHI, disabled EIST and C-States (For speedstep). Flashed Motherboard to F4 BIOS too. Used -v in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] after swapping in SL DVD. It constantly states "disk1s3: I/O error." Then loads some other things, saying it refused kext so using a different one, then boots to the 2nd grey screen with pinwheel of death, and shuts off a minute later. I am unsure how to proceed, and am at my wits end after spending hours troubleshooting. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    May I ask why you went for the i5-2500K over the 2500 or the 2400?
