    And once you buy it, Install Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on Ivy Bridge Based PCs

    As the orginal TMX86 iBoot Multibeast insturctions were writted for non Sandy bridge or Ivy Bridge system and a lot of users in the fourm have attempted to install SL w epic fail -

    And that you need to use SL to get to ML this created a proplem - then something happened


    THe 'Nuts Behind the Wheels" created this ....

    We have a new iBoot cd for Ivy Bridge that supports the Ivy Bridge line of CPU's and this should allow you to get to install SL and then allow You to get to the APP store an download - make - and install a UniBeast flash Drive.

    So this should help as finding older hardware nowadays is next to impossible.
