Get the hazard snow leo distro burn it at 1x speed with img burn. Non rw disc. When the cd boots up hit f8 the type no quotes busratio=(whatever your multipier is in bios. While your there make optical boot first.) -x -v


when it gets to the install screen click utilities and disk utility and it will show ur hdd and indented will be yur partitions click on disk and then partitions pick 2 equal ones and options guid boot.


exit out disk utility

agree to all the mumbo jumbo pick your drive and pick the second partition. If partitoning failed reboot the same way and do it again. It just erased all windows garbage off yur hdd and made it blank it should work for sure. Anyway choose custimize on the bottom left after picking your drive.



don't pick a kernel don't pick anything but chameleon bootloader the latest version with pcefi I think it's 10.5.


we can figure out what you need to install during the verbose boot.


ok click install don't verify the disc and it'll take bout 20 minutes. It will say less than a minute for like 5. Don't bail out ever! Once this gets figured out it'll be a cinch.


reboot and take out the dvd


select where you installed using left and rightarrows and hit spacebar. Hit delete a few times to make sure it didn't insert spaces.



now type this you'll see it at the bottom of your screen "boot:"


arch=i386 -legacy -x -v


that'll take you into "for sure gunna werk ultra super duper safe mode" fill out all the boxes create a login and voila.


oh yeah if your keyboard and track pad don't work after install go get a usb mouse and keyboard at walmart to use till we find out what kexts you need you can just return it. SLeo needs usb but I think there's a patch.


ok report back lemme know if it went ok or pm me for my email.

I am trying to install Snow Leopard 10.6.2 Hazard on this system:


CPU: Amd Athlon X64 4200+ (2.2 Ghz)

Motherboard: Asrock ALiveXFire-eSATA2

WD 200 GB

Video: Nvidia 9600GT 1GB


I started the installer successfully only with "-v busratio=11".

In the installer I selected the Legacy Kernel and AMD Patch and Snow Leopard installed successfully.


The problem is that after reboot I received this kernel panic:



I pushed the reset button and now I only get this weird screen:



Did anyone encounter this before?!
