Install Mac OS X Snow Leopard/Lion on AMD

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to this forum and let me tell it: I have never been able to install Mac Os on any pc, amd or intel. I followed thousads of guides but nothing. Kext here, kernels there distro overhere, i don't know what these are and can't understand how to do all the things. I have a great knowlegde about computers but it seems that the hackintosh doesn't like me and i don't like it.


Only a few hours ago i've been able to install mac os x retail on an intel cpu using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. But that's an intel, everuthing is easy on intel.


Here's my system:


AMD Phenom II X6 1090t @ 3.6 GHz

8GB DDR3 1333 MHz Ram

AMD Radeon HD 6870 in crossfire-x (so two of them, I won't care if crossfire-x won't work)


DVD Burner

750 GB HDD


I know how to so stuff in the bios, if this information can help. I just don't know all the hacintosh term like distro and kext etc...


I'm trying since long time to install iDeneb, iAtkos and Kalyway (of couse they are made also for AMD) and nothing worked for one problem: all of them, when i initially booted to install them, when the grey screen with the apple appears: i get the stop sign (actually it's not a stop, i don't know how to call it in english, it something like this:




and i never knew what to do. just to boot using -v and check the problem, but everything was so hard.


I'm just asking you guys to help me install at least snow leopard on this AMD processor (and hoperfully getting everything to work. I already have Windows 7 installed and of course, know how to partion a drive.
