Using MODCD to install mac os x

Hi All,


This is my first post!!


Anyway, I saw a tutorial on youtube of how to triple boot mac os x, windows 7 and ubuntu. So, I thought I would give it a go. I downloaded a copy of Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.7 and the MODCD. When I came to boot up into the MODCD, I put my 10.6.7. disk in and it wouldn't recognise it (it was also a retail copy that I had burnt onto a DVD+RDL) Then I tries putting in a OSX86 distro and it picked that up fine. I was wondering why it would not find my retail copy. Or is there another way I can install it?


Thanks :)

what do you mean by 10.6.0 and 10.6.3 are the only retaill versions?


You downloaded an illegal distro. You need to go to the Apple store near you and purchase a Snow Leopard 10.6.3 DVD. A Mac for $30 ain't bad dude. When you have the retail OS X DVD then download the Nawcom ModCD. Make sure your bios is set to AHCI and then boot off of the ModCD. At the appropriate time put the retail OS X DVD in the drive and install.
