I am not new to the world of mac as I have owned my macbook pro laptop for a few years now, although I also own a PC and would like to install hackintosh on it.

The problem is, It is an AMD PC and I know for AMC computers the hardware compatability can become spotty.


I have been following a tuttorial titled "AMD Phenom Hackintosh Snow Leopard 10.6.8 Retail instructions!"


Within that tuttorial it states to gather the following files:

Retail Update DVD 10.6.3

Nawcom CD

Nawcom gibts USB


I have downloaded all the necessary files that are listed on that tutorial although I can not get passed the begining steps.

Here are the first steps to complete in BIOS settings:


1st Load Optimized Defaults (Reboot)

2nd Sata set in AHCI mode

3rd AMD C1E mattering (Disabled)

4th ACPI Suspend Mode to S3

5th AMD Cool & Quite off

6th Primary boot disk specify

7th Save

8th Reboot



Problem is in my BIOS, I can not set Sata to AHCI mode. (only ide)

I can not find AMD C1E mattering

I can not find any ACPI mode



System Info:

Processor: AMD FX 8120 - Eight Core Processor @3.60GHz

RAM: 12gb

Motherboard: ASRock N68C - GS FX

Graphics: GeForce 9800 GT



I am trying to instal Snow Leopard on it.


Is it possible to do with my Motherboard and Processor?



Do I need a SSD in order to do this installation?
