Ok, I have an i7-920 with an Ex58-UD5 mobo and it currently has Windows 7 on it, LEGAL and all (so i don't feel like losing my license key) and I don't have access to a Mac.


I tried Digital Dreamer's method back when I had a Mac at work...it never ran good. Now I am out of a job and need to do freelance video editing (FCP) and I need to get this running badly... ;)


I just now attempted Kakewalk, however the OEM DMG file of the Snow Leopard Disc either didn't burn perfect or something and it wouldn't boot following Kakewalk's guide. And I even went as far and used "TransMac" for burning it too! Now I have a Verbatim coaster...and I am running out of them quick. This was attempt #2 using Kakewalk.


I need help guys and girls. I feel like pulling my hair out this is so frustrating. If anyone could point me in the right direction and it work, I will seriously tip you $20 via paypal. :D


Thanks so much.

i've not heard of either. and sorry for any confusion, it is a copy of the retail dvd for Snow Leopard i have, the DMG image. the trouble i'm having is burning it obviously...


and the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] thing looks cool i just don't want it to be {censored} like kalyway was for me. nothing worked right with kalyway so i've been afraid of these modded installations since.

WHAT THE -_- do i do when it says remove anything more than 4gb of ram when my CPU only runs in sticks of 3??? and i only have 3 sticks of 2gb's each?


ahhhhhh this sucks. AGAIN. no but for real i jokingly ask the ram question because i guess i'll be ok with the 6 gigs since that's my only option. i do seriously appreciate the pointer because i'd be a liar if i said i'm not going to try that this weekend. :rolleyes:

haha: then remove one 2gb ram stick so you got 4 :)

the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and myHack installations are retail installations!! the only thing they do is:


- use a bootloader to boot the retail image

- inject some kext you'll need for your hardware (check out the topics on your mainboard in this or the tutorial forum)


but again the ram thing: if you have issues installing with 6 GB and don't know any further, take 2 GB out and try again ... i don't think there will be great issues with 6 GB RAM.


have fun trying!
