Hi All,

 

Here after a long time - had been busy with life but the curioisity has once again led me back to the forum :-) it is good to see alot of new members and alot of progress.

 

I just got this optiplex 780 usff with Intel Q45 Express Chipset w/ICH10DO chipset.

 

It has a celeron (hardware virtualization supported) processor.

 

I have downloaded Boot-132 and I have a retail Snow Leopard 10.6 Disc with me.

 

First Boot :

 

Loaded the disc fine and then stuck on Apple Boot screen with a circle and red sign, left it like for 20minutes - no response.

 

--

Went into the bios,

 

Enabled CPU LIMIT

RAID ON AHCI SATA (thats the option in the Bios - I have only one HDD)

 

Rebooted with Boot-132, won't even load the SL Retail disc ?

 

---

 

Any thoughts or suggestions would be really helpful.

 

Also, I am in process of building a system, if someone can give a couple of mobos and processor names, which are vanilla compatible - that would be great.

 

Thanks for reading

Kind Regards

If you want to run a vanilla system, the only consideration is processor: you will need a mobo that supports Intel Core or Intel Xeon processors (Core 2 or better or Xeon if you want to run Lion). Try to avoid Core 2 Quad if possible.
