So, your specification is:

 

CPU: Intel Core i3-330M(2.13GHz)

GPU: Intel HD device id 0x0046 (like in new MacBooks?)

 

Please, try booting with -x flag (safe mode). Also, your hardware should be able to run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] option (retail install) try that. My bet is that you get a kernel panic because of some kexts in iAtkos installation disc.

 

There are many versions of retail install, try to google and find all of them, try all of them, and post us with an update good sir! Thank you!

i should have added that there is no option to change SATA TO AHCI in my bios. Does this matter?

Well, I personally had an experience with a p5kpl se asus motherboard, that also had no ahci for storage only IDE SATA and disabled IIRC. But definitely no AHCI, and I managed to install OS X on an IDE HDD. Haven't tried SATA disks as at the moment I had no spare ones at work.

 

So, you could be in luck with that, however be sure to try out [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] because honestly that is the best way to install, you will be able to update to newer versions if you manage to set everything up (meaning you run a vanilla - unmodified kernel).

 

If that doesn't work, you can always try iDeneb 1.6 which is Leopard 10.5.8 version (worked like a charm for me), iAtkos v7 (10.5.7. I believe) or some SL distro, like Hazard, SnowLeo..

 

Please keep us posted, esp on the retail install progress. Don't hesitate to post screenies here or any questions, I'll be glad to try and help out.

Hi it's me again. I've managed to install ideneb 1.6 but had problem booting it. After installation, i restarted but cannot boot inti it. Can you give me a detailed guide on how you installed iDeneb 1.6 and how to update it to 10.6.5.

here's what i got when i tried to boot off the hdd after ideneb 1.6

ideneb 1.6 boot error

Can you please try booting into iDeneb with -v -x for safe mode?

 

I googled for a few minutes to find out what could be the problem, and I found a suggestion to boot into single user mode, and do

 

/sbin/fsck -fy

 

Also, another possible solution would be to reinstall the OS. Upon reinstallation try to boot into safe mode first to see if you can boot at all.

 

Please upload the files as attachments to insanelymac directly, I wanted to download 2 of your screenshots and hotfile makes me wait so I'd have to release my IP but wife is downloading ;)

 

Don't know much, but have you enabled ACPI 2.0 support in BIOS?

Hi this is the bios setting of my laptop My_Bios_and_mac_osx_install_error.rarEverest_report_system_report.pdf.

So having seen my bios setup, how do i change to ahci and acpi. The system is a sony vaio vpceb12fx. Your assisstance is really needed as i would love to have snow leopard run on my system. For your info i also tried iportable wsithout success. Tried it (iportable) on my old acer aspire 5610z, core duo, on an external hdd and it worked. But the same keeps rebooting my vaio,immediately after applying the boot flags. used different types and combinations of boot flags. Thanks

Hello, friend. This guide might help you:

 

--> Link

 

Why? Because I read another thread on a forum where a user has the same chipset as you on a laptop, i5 processor and had the same issue as you after entering the boot flags with many distributions. However, as reported, this guide made it possible for him to install on his laptop.

 

Tell me if it works!

NOTE** I am not sure about the fixes in the guide, or if it will help you entirely, but if you get the installer booting, it will be a success of some kind, no? :)
