I am trying to do my first hackintosh, but am failing right now. I have a core i5-750 cpu, so I figured it shouldn't be too hard. I am using tonymacx86's method for installing Snow Leopard (http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/[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]-install-mac-os-x-on.html) but every time I get to the step where the Utilities/Disk Utility screen is supposed to pop up, my monitor goes blank, and nothing happens after that. I left my computer sitting for like 30 minutes to see if anything would happen, but nothing did. My BIOS are set just like it says to in the instructions. Oh, and I am using a Sapphire 4670 1 gb video card. Sorry for being a noob, but I'm trying to learn. If you need any more information on my computer or situation, I'll gladly post it. Thanks!

Hell, you got me beat for the tonymac method. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] makes my computer kernel panic EVERY time after I switch disks. It refuses to boot the Snow Leopard DVD from the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] disk. I installed using Nawcom's mod CD with no trouble.

Well, that method worker better, but I still don't have it working. I got Mac OS installed, but whenever I try to boot from the hard drive, I get the cryptic "still waiting for root device". I am using a SATA DVD drive and an IDE hard drive, but I really don't want to have to buy a SATA hard drive for this to work. I've tried switching the master/slave jumper settings already. And I am in AHCI mode. Any suggestions?

Well, OK. It makes sense, I just didn't want to have to buy a SATA hard drive. Do you know of any way of partitioning a windows drive? I have a SATA hard drive, and it doesn't have my windows OS on it, just all of my data. Is there any way to create a partition that the Mac setup can see? I already tried it with an ex-FAT and NFTS partition. Both times, the disk utility just recognized my one drive.
