I need to install MAC OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.2

 

My System Specs:

MotherBoard: INTEL DG41RQ DESKTOP BOARD

Processer: Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory: 4gb RAM

Graphics:Nvidia 9800 GT

HardDrive: 320GB

Default BIOS Settings

I Used To Work With Windows 7 Before Doing This:

 

I Downloaded The SNOW LEOPARD CLIENT SERVER 10.6.1 and 10.6.2 SSE2 SSE3 INTEL AMD BY HAZARD ISO

and wrote the iso to a blank DVD at the speed of 4x

 

i booted the disk and then darwin loaded i pressed f8 and then typed "-v" without quotes

then when the setup started i opened disk utility

among the 4 partitions that i had i erased the 2nd partition in the format mac osx extended journaled

 

and then continued...

 

then i clicked on customize

 

i selected mac osx 10.6.2

in kernels-Legacy_Kernel 10.2.0

in bootloader-Chameleon 2.0 RC3 PC EFI 10.5

in graphics-NVEnabler

in system-elliottforcelegacy

 

and continued...

the installation took some time then

 

the setup installed successfully and i was asked to restart i restarted and immediately removed the disk from the drive

and here the problem comes

 

while booting i get something like this

 

 

boot0=testing

boot0=testing

boot0=testing

boot0=error :( :( :( :(

 

and this remains nothing goes ahead

 

i have tried many other combinations in customizations like this provided in mac osx86 wiki for my motherboard

 

Audio: Realtek ALC662 using VoodooHDA from the install DVD works perfectly, AppleAzalia works too but without input.

LAN: Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20) using RealtekR1000 from the install DVD works perfectly.

WLAN: Atheros AR5005GS using AtherosFix from the install DVD detected as AirPort works perfectly.

SATA & IDE: Both work perfectly using IOATAFamilyFix from the install DVD.

Optical Drive: DVD booted from 1st SATA ODD when 2nd SATA ODD exists. SATA set in BIOS as NATIVE IDE.

Shutdown, reboot and sleep work without Patches.

PS2 fix for PS2 support.

Bootloader / EFI / Kernel: Chameleon 2.0 RC3 / PC EFI 10.5 / Legacy_Kernel 10.2.0

 

 

i have also tried selecting all patches

i have also tried pressing f8 when darwin loads and typing "-v" and typing "-v arch=i386" and typing "-x -v busratio=20 cpus=1"

 

but still the error remains the same can any one tell me wat should i do to go ahead

 

 

any help would be appreciated

thanksss!!!!

Do your self a favor and buy the Apple Snow Leopard Installer DVD (It's $29.00) and use Kakewalk to install it.

I think the USB boot is the easiest to get going as long as the components supported by Kakewalk are used.

I totally agree with buying the apple dvd. I have the same mobo, the default settings in the bios havent worked for me. I had to change the bios settings. In boot options I had to set it to legacy and sata only. I used the hd in sata slot 1 and the dvd in slot 2 ( I read somewhere that was important). I used the tonymac method with his boot disk and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Do not select intel networking, that board has the realtec one, also the audio needs the 662 or 622 kext thing. I still havent got sleep working but other than that its great. Good luck
