is this forum dead? how come nobody answering?

Your hardware is too new dude. The guy above is right, Phenom's need the Chameleon EFI bootloader. I was successful installing OSx86 to an external hard drive on my 780G / SB700 / Phenom 9550 using Zephyroth's 10.5.1. Then I installed the Chameleon EFI and used Zephyroth's ASU 0.5 to update the install to 10.5.3. Then I installed the 9.3 modbin kernel for AMD. The whole process may be simpler if you had a release that used the Chameleon EFI bootloader right off the bat...
