lately ive been trying to install Mac OS Snow Leopard on my PC, and ive run into some technical difficulties.

im using the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]+MultiBeadt method and guide since it seems the simplest. i downloaded the latest version of [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]

and burned it to a dvd, the same i did with a mac os snow Leopard retail iso i found on the net. i then proceeded to

configure my bios as stated in the guide:

SATA Controller= AHCI Mode.

HPET Mode= 64 bit Mode.

next i boot into the RC5 thing with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], i then swapped the discs( inserted the retail disc) and booted normally.

the boot gets stuck at the grey apple screen after loading for about a minute then hanging at that screen with

a small "no-entry" sign 'on the apple'. i next tried to do this in (-v) Verbose mode in which i also had no success.

the boot gets stuck after loading a bunch of hsf files or something. (i have an image attached of the prompt)




my hardware configuration is as follows:

Gigabyte P55A-UD3

i5- 760

2 GB DDR3 RAM (1333 Mhz)

Nvidia GTX 260.

WD 500 GB sata hard disk.

HP (IDE) Optical Drive. - (connected with ide cable to channel 4)

(usb mouse and keyboard)


- i removed any other pieces seeing they might create more problems.


what am i doing wrong?

did i miss a step?

from what i understood my hardware is compatible with the mac os, but im obviously missing


(im a noob to this so please answer me in simple terms :hysterical: )


i am very frustrated and hope someone here can help me. any help

would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks in advance.
