Hi, i just subscribed and i hope i'm gonna find answers in this nice forum.


I wanna install Snow Leopard (no matter which version) on my PC system. Here's my config:

MB: Gigabyte X58A-UD7

CPU: Core i7 980X


SSD: OCZ Revo-Drive 120gb

HDDs: 2XWD 1TO SATA3 and 1Xregular SATA2

Optical drives: LG BH08LS20 + Samsung (something lol)

RAM: 2X2Go G.Skill PC17600 running on 1066MHz


other devices:

Avermedia CaptureHD727 PCI-E1X

Asus Xonar HDAV 1.3 PCI-E1X

Trendnet WiFi N PCI



Eye Toy cam

Logitech MX5500 keyboard and mouse

Nvidia 3DVision



Samsung 2233RZ



i've already installed and made work Ubuntu and Windows7 32bits. 7 works on the SSD and Ubuntu works on one partition of one of the SATA3 drives.


i've already tried three ways to install Snow Leopard, most of the time unplugging everything i could, Hazard way, Uniflash way and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] way.



Which method has the best chances to work on my build?


thanks so much for your answers.

Best way for me was to make myself a bootable installer.


First take Everest and make a dsdt.aml in Windows.

Then look for properly smbios.plist with config near to your system, you can find it in google. (It is not neccessary to have MacPro in your systeminfo, sometimes if there is imac or macbookpro the system works better)

Take a mac, a retail dvd and restore it (you can do that in disk utility) to an usb drive. Then install ASEREBLN Bootloader to the USB drive where macos was restored and put your dsdt.aml and smbios.plist in Extra folder that you create in root of this usbdrive. Then make one more folder in Extra, called Extensions. Put there FakeSMC.kext(you can find it in google or here), and at the finish create com.apple.boot.plist in Folder "Extra" and put this content in:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<key>Boot Banner</key>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>



Boot from USBDrive, Install(about 10min) and then Install AsereBLN Bootloader on the Installed MacOSX Disk

Thats all. Of course you need a little bit to search for right kexts like sound, graphic, ethernet but if you get the bootloader working properly you have won.
