    I doubt it is. You can get a card as far back as an 8800GT to work in Snow Leopard easily though.

    As to you system - this has been built w OSX10.6 but the question was will it work w the Intel HD graphice that your CPU has
    The onboard grahics was addded to OSX late - I think in 10.6.7 /8 for apple hardware that was planned to use this hardware.

    See this link for some info on that motherboard.or a Build

    yes this link is for lion but read the posts as their is two links that you may need to read.
    GUIDE for GIGABYTE H55 UD3H BIOS F 10

    I Believe due to the age of this motherboard - you should use iBoot Legacy and Multibeast 3.7.3 - if the current versoins do not work.

    I am sure that you are going to need to use some start up switchs at the install point after you boot from iBoot

    Start -x -v -f PCIRootUID=0

    See Tonymacx86 iBoot and Multibeast section for instructions

    See if this works to assist you install and use the above mentioned links for assitance - also if you have an older graphics card that maybe required as
    I did see anyone w/0 one - but it could work as a mac mini...

    also -
    If you are unfamiliar w the internal workings of the Mackintosh world, I found the following websites and videos very be helpful.

    But before you do this please look for some YOUtube vids under the name deanwrayUK

    yes the OSX will not use any IDE interface - you should just use sata ports - sata port 1 should be you hack volume
    and for best results your hard drv should not be a new advanced format drive like large drives - From my personal use I suggest a drive max raw capacity of 750 gb or lower - and you can partition that in to two volumes w Apples disk utility - drives w 1Tb and larger will give you the waiting for root device error if they are the new 4k sector / advanced format disks.

    Also I suggest that you use a sony optiarc dvd as this is the most compatiable -

    Yes it it possible and I think Tony had a process but it was chalk full of problems and was abandoned. You may want to check the legacy.tonymacx86.com site and do some searchs on it.

    In theory it is possible to but it on a USB drive - but you will need multible USB drives now mostly 4 gb so if you have to buy hardware I think a sata dvd is the best way.

    Its also posssible to boot from an external USB drive if your hardware support it - some system bios does not support this.

    But to actually go on the record and suggest a solution or provide assistance to this is against the rules of the forum and is not allowed as we are of topic from the recomended ways that are used on this site.

    you should do this on your own - Google is you friend!
