Installing Jas 10.4.8 SSE2,SSE3 Intel and AMD

OK, so last summer, I thought I would be funny, and install mac OS X on my PC. Problem was, I was using the deadmoo image, I had no SSE3, and I wanted a bit more than 6 GB. Recently, I built a new rig:


MoBo: ASUS P5N-E SLI (nForce 650i SLI)

GPU: GeForce 7900 GS oc

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 4MB L2 cache, 2.4 GHz (Yes, I have Streaming SIMD set 3)

RAM: 2x 1GB G.Skill DDR2 800

HDD1: SATA Seagate Barracuda 320 GB

HDD2: IDE Maxtor 160 GB

(a few more less important components)


I tried the Jas Intel and AMD SSE2,SSE3 10.4.8 (beta) and it booted fine natively, and in VM ware. I had a few problems with it recognizing my SATA drives in native booting, however my IDE works, and that is the drive that I am trying to install it on anyways. When I install it, it installs, when I reboot, it gives me this whole kernel stack fault error business. It also gives me it in VM ware, and VM ware tells me that the CPU reset.


So I looked deeper, and I found to install some intel package for intel CPUs. So I select it without AMD or any of the unnecesary {censored}. I install common hardware stuff (excluding ATI {censored}) and I also install the NVidia drivers. I boot it up in VM ware, and the program just goes back to the configuration screen. When I do it natively, I get to the bootscreen, and everything goes black. (it shuts down completely)


I know my computer is capable of doing OS X, because I have gotten the deadmoo image to boot. However, I would like to be able to adjust my resolution above 1024 x 768, and I would like to run SSE3 apps such as iTunes. I also use the deadmoo image in VM ware, and I can edit my OSX install.


Ever since I have gotten the whole shut down deal (I must have selected the right packages) I can't see the drive in VM ware.


Before I go, I would like to mention, that I have searched everywhere on what to do. Either it doesnt work, or the .kext that I was told to delete was not there to begin with.


At this point, I don't really care if I have to download a new ISO, but somebody please tell me what I am doing wrong. Right now, all I need is a GUI and a full hard drive partition. I will work out later bugs (such as networking) once they exist.
