Hi guys


Need a bit of help installing leopard on my gaming pc,

My specs are:


AMD Phenom X3 8550B 2.5GHz (supports SSE 1,2,3 and 4A)

Gigabyte M68M-S2P

chipset - NVIDIA GeForce 7025

Southbridge - nForce 630a

4GB DDR2 Supertalent memory PC2-6400

Graphics Card - NVIDIA GeForce GT240 512mb

NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet

Realtek High Definition Audio ALC888b

BIOS - Award Software International, Inc. F5,


I have tried installing before using lawless and iATKOSv7 but ending up getting kernel panic or full installation but getting the reboot loop or waiting for root device. tried many flags such as cpus=1, maxmem=2048 etc


Have successfully installed iATKOSv7 or a hp compaq dc7100 sff.


Could someone tell me what distro i need and what settings and i need to select would be most grateful ;)

You have to search and search and search ^^


Search in the forum and use St Google.. :P


A lot of tutorial use, maybe, a part of your hardware.. You can take a part from each of them, and try.. :)

The GT240 has been supported by the x86 community for a while. Following tonymacx86's guide to installing [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] should be helpful.


As for the processor, AMD doesn't run natively with OS X. This is because there isn't a Mac with an AMD processor. But, there's guides to installing OS X with an AMD Processor.


What you'll need:


[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] burned to a disk

10.6.3 Boot disk (I'm not sure if I can name specifics on here, but a bit of 'googling' a major p2p filesharing website should help)

A DSDT file for your motherboard (found at www.kexts.com)

Whatever's needed for an AMD Processor (sorry, Intel guy here)

[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] - found on tonymac86's website, along with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].



You might also need tonymac86's NVIDIA update. I think it's only for 4xx cards, though. If that's not what you need, [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] should have an option for graphics acceleration.

ahhh right, i got a lot of work to do then, 10.6 thats 6 gig do i need a dual layer or do they have a lite version with a load of stuff taken out or shall i just buy a retail of snow?


also [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] is only intel isnt it? or have they updated now?


I use p2p all the time so thats not a problem, the only problem is im low on money so it will be a pain getting dual layer disks,
