Hello. I've tried so many times install many versions of OSx86, but always with fail.

Just can't find distro which would start up on my config PC:

MOBO: nVIDIA nForce 650i Ultra
CPU: DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E6420
RAM: 2GB DDR2 800MHz
GPU: Gigabyte 7800 GT 256MB
HDD: tried both SATA /and/ ATA drives

Sometimes when installation is done, OSX is starting but hanging up on white screen with Apple logo on it, then, after restart, this screen is exchange for blank screen.

Don't know what should I set in BIOS and what kexts, drivers should I use.

Someone installed it with success on hardware like mine?

 

Thanks for replies.

1. Get a IDE (PATA) DVDRW and jumper-set and connect as Master to your MOBO

 

2. See my nForce chipset MOBO Snow Leopard Install Guide here......and my Pre-Series 7 nForce + Intel CPU MOBO Guide for Leopard (includes link to BIOS settings for OS X in post #1) here.....and my blog for Snow Leopard and Leopard install guides...... :P

 

Ask questions in my Leopard and then Snow Leopard threads if you want my help!

 

3. Set your BIOS as shown in template for 650i OS X..........do not get hung up on AHCI mode........as the template says it is a "composite guide".........your BIOS may not have every BIOS parameter shown..........some BIOS setups enable AHCI mode implicitly when the SATA Controller is enabled together with RAID mode (even though the installed HDDs are not set up in RAID i.e. by the individual SATA Channel RAID modes being disabled)....... :)
