10.6 "Mac OS X cant be installed on this computer" help!

1 post in this topic

Hey looking for some help,


I am trying to install Snow Leopard on my PC. Here are my specs:


Motherboard: MSI P43 Neo-F(7514) cpu-z photo

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 cpu-z photo

Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD 4670

HDD: I have a 160GB SATA HD

CD/DVD Drive: SATA DVD Drive


The way I set up the install was by getting a retail copy of Snow Leopard restored to my external 250gb usb drive, that I partitioned into 2 parts (the first has Chameleon rc4 with the PC-EFI 10.6 bootloader, and the second has the Snow Leopard image on it.) http://i997.photobucket.com/albums/af91/js...09at20510AM.png (also I do have access to a mac pro to do prep work)


I am able to make it boot to the GUI by using the GraphicsEnabler=Yes at the start. (If I don't do the GraphicsEnabler=Yes it gives me a KP) However I get this error after I select my language "Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer" http://i997.photobucket.com/albums/af91/jsfullr/IMG_0867.jpg


My BIOS settings are set correctly (AHCI/RAID, and Enabled S.M.A.R.T on the Hard Drive, HPET is Enabled as well). Here is a picture of the last frame before it loads up the GUI (It has some errors and I have no idea what they mean) http://i997.photobucket.com/albums/af91/jsfullr/final.png


Also here a 30 second clip of the boot sequence in verbose mode right before it enters the GUI http://s997.photobucket.com/albums/af91/js...urrent=boot.flv


Anyways any help would be great!
