I did a fresh install (retail .mpkg way from another website) of snow leopard 10.6 and then installed MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.4.dmg update and it KP'd during the end "writing receipts" and I thought all was lost.

 

I then rebooted once which then rebooted by itself to finish updating and low and behold, it started up.

 

I then installed legacy_kernel-10.4.0.pkg which replaced the old modbin mach_kernel.test7 kernel and had to use an older IOUSBFamily.kext

 

all is well. . .so far

So you need a working Leopard install first. I cant even get a working leopard install I've tried using iAtkos v7 which is most recommended and it Kernel panics on disc load rtclock_init error on voodoo. I managed to get it to install by using Kakewalk first, but after install it just kernel panics again.

 

Can anyone recommend a distro, kernel and relevant settings to get a Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4P motherboard with Phenom X2 running?

I've gotten a (mostly) working SL install using hazard's snow leopard client-server torrent on my GA-MA790X-UD4P. Make sure your SATA HDD is in the yellow bank of sata plugs, SATA DVD is on the purple bank, in BIOS, set up the SATA as AHCI mode, set up the GSATA II as IDE mode (otherwise it won't boot off the DVD). Boot to the DVD, worked great for me. I installed using legacy kernel 10.2.0, AMD patch, NVEnabler for my video card (GeForce 9600GT), Realtek 8169 for ethernet, and AppleAzaliaAudio for the sound. I added the ElliotForceLegacyRTC to fix the problem with overwriting CMOS, the ATIATA chipset, JMICRON ATA chipset (if you need IDE), I think that's it, if not try following these instructions instead: http://www.leohazard.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3834 they're a little different from mine, but might work for you.

here's a great Snow Leopard guide from the Genius Bar that has a couple of boot CD's u can download & try, but you will also need a retail DVD of Snow Leopard:

 

AMD and Retail Snow Leopard 10.6.4 [GUIDE]. . .

 

I did not have much luck with booting different mac distros on my setup and I ended up completely disabling all my IDE ports leaving nothing but SATA drives and and External USB DVD drive to boot and burn with.

 

What did eventually work for me was Booting the retail DVD (leopard 10.5.6) from a modified boot-132 CD that I had downloaded somewhere here in the forum, and it ran great.

 

I only recently bit the bullet and went completely switched to Snow Leopard with minimal fuss. . .

 

I had no luck booting Hazzard or any other Snow Leopard distros, only retail installs worked for me.

 

I'm using an nForce motherboard, which is weird to begin in the hackintosh world and frankly i'm amazed how good it actually runs.

 

Most people just want to download a distro, click on a few drivers and pray for a miracle, well been there done that! Retail installs blow away any others that I've ever tried, don't ask me why.
