Trouble on install Iatkos 10.6.3 or Snow Leopard retail on H61MU-E35

I got a new system: main board is MSI H61MU-E35 ( http://www.msi.com/product/mb/H61MU-E35--B3-.html#Spec ) with I5 Cpu (Intel Core i5 2300, 2.8ghz), 4gb ram ddr3, 2TB sata hdd, DVD Writer Samsung SH-S223C SATA Black bulk.

I managed to update the BIOS to 10.4 for AHCI enable. I started the installation of IATKOS 10.6.3, 3 times, with 1. -v 2. -v -busratio=28 3. -v -x -busratio=28. Even if I got the install welcome screen, and managed to partition HDD GUID with one 100 gb, second 200 gb HFS+ system, the install started but: it stops on "18 minutes left" then no hdd or DVD drive activity, no progress bar activity. I checked the install log and I've seen the install progress stops after loading uphuck extensions (does not matter what I chose on customization section). How can I solve this problem?


The second attempt was with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and retail snow leopard put on usb. The system hangs complain about 1. no acpi compatible 2. it start faster to install screen where I only see the usb drive (so I think it does not load any ahci/ide drivers).

L.E. Solved. Solution here http://www.unixexpert.ro/mac-os-x-10-6-7-snow-leopard.html



I also own an Acer Extensa 5620 with 10.6.6 and another pc build on MSI, with 10.6.4 (custom DVD build) so it is not first time I work with Snow Leopard.

Please advice.
