Installing from DVD will indeed be impossible since it needs the SATA drivers on install. You will need to create an install on a PATA drive and then clone it with hatchery (hackintosh mode) to the SATA drive.

Also make sure all the IDE channels are enabled cause disabling those slows down my OSX86 boot process by a lot.


Good luck lad!
