Help for installing snow leopard on my AMD system

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



First of all, I am a noob when it comes to OSX86 installation(Tried a lot but haven't been successful).

I have tried a lot of installation guides out there with no success(may be because at least one of the components in those guide did not match my system).



My system specs go as follows:

  • CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 945
  • MoBo: ASUS M5A78LT-M LE (AMD 760G)
  • Gfx: Galaxy Geforce 9500GT 1GB DDR2(VGA and DVI out, no HDMI)
  • RAM: 2x2GB DDR3 1366(Transcend)
  • HDD: Seagate 500GB SATA 3GB/s(My primary disc. but I will be using my Seagate 80GB SATA for OS X installation)
  • Sound: Onboard sound
  • Network: Onboard LAN



Can someone recommend which snow leopard disc(Retail/iAKTOS or some other) should I use and what installation options should I select(kernel and other stuff)? Also, do I need to use a third party boot loader?

I don't need to dual boot as I am planning to install it on a separate hard drive.

I just want to get it work(Video, Sound and if possible network).

I don't need any fancy stuff like correct display of CPU name and etc.


Also, in case I DO plan to triple boot with Win XP Pro x64 and Win 7 Ulti x64, how do I go about it?


Getting OS X to run on my PC is my dream and I would really appreciate any help!

You can try Hazard's Snow Leopard. It's a not bad distro and supports AMD. Just make sure to select right stuff in the setup. It explains itself anyway.

    • Yup that's fine! Oddly, when rebooting several times it is suddenly gone! Only thing I need to fix is getting 'Headphone' output to work, after sleep. Internal Speakers are working after sleep. I assume to fix this in CodecCommander.kext/ EAPDFix.kext? Anyway thanks for your help!   Yup I have a combo output, so there was something wrong I guess.
    • Nice @yapan4 then we can join forces to make this as good as possible.
    • I had a weird situation, after running great for a while: yesterday I did a reboot and got a KP. Turns out the AstekFusion2Adapter kexts were causing the KP, strange thing is I didn't recall applying any update or a like.  I had to boot with the USB installer, mount the EFI partition to delete the old AstekFusion2Adapter kexts and replaced with the patched version contributed by despeinao. I'm glad the system is working again, not having to reinstall OSX.
    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
      Grazie   Ho creato un configplist , se vuoi provare , dovrebbe essere pulito da ogni impurità , se funziona dovrai adattarli tutte le tue personalizzazioni x il boot ..... config.plist.zip
