Recommended Posts

I just got Snow leopard on my new system. So I thought I'd post a guide. I'm going to worry about sound, LAN, and video LATER. This is to get a functional OS X system.




Intel Core i3 530




1TB Disk


Intel H57 Chipset.


What you need:


[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Supported DVD


Snow Leo DVD


Some time :(.



-Download and burn the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Supported DVD.


-Boot off it. At the screen, take it out, put the SL DVD in and push F5. The SL DVD should show up. Simply push enter.


-Format your drive to 1 partition, GUID, and Mac OS Extended. One partition unless you are doing a dual/triple/quad/multi boot.


-Install. Since the SX2840 has Core i3 and we are using Supported, we'll get install succeded.


-The intro. vid will be laggy (maybe, unless you used ur own kexts for a separate video card) and no sound.


-Now run Dr. Hurt's chameleon RC4 installer, and select your SL Drive.


-Put the Supported DVD back in. Navigate to the Preboot.DMG, and take the Vanilla kernel (10.3.1) and put it on the root of the SL drive.


-Reboot into 10.6.3



I'm not going to go for any others like sound, video, or LAN, but if you have the same machine and want to look for it, be my guest, found one? then post it here
