To make this process works make sure you have all the stuff listed below:


1. 8GB USB Flash Drive

2. TransMac from http://www.acutesystems.com/scrtm.htm

3. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] from http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/

4. Snow Leopard 10a432

5. Snow Leopard 10.6.6 Update

6. DSDT Auto Patcher http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=235523



Step 1: Insert your 8GB USB Flash Drive into USB port and start TransMac.




In TransMac (run as Administrator), right click on 8GB USB Flash Drive > Format > Format with Disk Image.




Locate your Snow Leopard 10a432 dmg file and OK. Wait for it to finish.





Next we are going to copy folders such as: [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], kext, etc files that you think you need.

This is for after the installation of Snow Leopard. We will need these files later.

[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and DSDT Auto Patcher and Snow Leopard 10.6.6 Update folders MUST have in the USB.




Step 2: Burn [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to a blank CD-R and leave it in the CD drive.



The Install:


Step 3: Reboot the computer and boot from CD Drive and USB Flash Drive.




Step 4: The screen should appears as above: so Press F5 on the keyboard:




You should see Snow Leopard install icon after you pressed F5.

Select Snow Leopard installation disc (Boot with command lines if required).


You should now have been in the installation process.

1. Language Selection




2. Tools Menu > Disk Utilities > Create partition Mac OSX Extended (Journaled) to the drive you want to install your Snow Leopard to.




GUID Partition Table > OK

Click APPLY.


Close Disk Utilities and continue the installation.


Customize the install to make installation faster by meaning just install Snow Leopard only no other stuff such as Printers, etc.


The installation should now finish and reboot the computer.

Boot with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] cd in the drive, remove the 8GB USB Flash Drive for now.


Again it should look like this: You should see the Snow Leopard (this is from the Hard Drive you installed)

Once the boot is done you should now be in Snow Leopard welcome screen. Set up all the details, once finished put the 8GB USB Flash Drive in.




Locate DSDT Auto Patcher and select the right Motherboard you have and click Apply

This will generate DSDT.aml if you do not see it on Desktop, locate it and move it to Desktop.



Locate Snow Leopard 10.6.6 UPDATE and install. DO NOT RESTART!




Locate [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and install select the following options are showed in the picture.

[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and UserDSDT install Chameleon 2.0 RC5 by default, so you'll not need to check that option.


Now Reboot the computer and eject everything out: [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD Rom, USB.


NOTE: THIS GUIDE is for installing SNOW LEOPARD ONLY. For other drivers you will need to find out the right kext. You can use and play with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] until you get it right.

YOUR [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] CD rom is always there to help you boot into Snow Leopard if you installed the wrong kext files in Extra/Extensions folder.
