Thank you for the reply Slim Jim.
Yes, I agree with you.
I was quite surprised that the Snow Leopard drive even booted up on the R9,
since everything I researched before is no one was having luck even booting on 10.6.8.
And then my Digi002 w/Protools is working flawlessly other than the...
Radeon R9-280X 6GB
24 GB Ram
4K LG 40UB8000
1. I successfully upgraded from Snow Leopard to Mavericks 10.9.5
on new SSD. No problem w/ Mavericks.
2. Am booting successfully into previous Snow Leopard drive on the R9-280X 6GB,
but my only resolution choice is 1024...
Hopefully someone could offer some advise regarding upgrading from a TonyMacPro 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) build
to at least Mavericks. The only option on the Apple store is Yosemite. However a download of Yosemite is refused
with the message "This version of OS X 10.10 cannot be...

via a "USERDSDT" replacing the "EasyBeast" install.
Then rebuild & repair.
After confirming that the GraphicsEnabler was set
in Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist, I manually deleted NVEnabler 64.kext...
Re: *SOLVED* / iBoot Fails to Initialize
OK problem solved. I added an internal bluray burner/DVD connected via Sata and booted iBoot through this, rather than through an external USB CD/DVD (which was reading the .iso header but not executing).
Installation went like clock work after this...
Re: iBoot Fails to Initialize
Thank you very much for your suggestion to review guide.
Once again I reviewed closely.
I am booting iBoot from a USB CD/DVD peripheral which is one of my
options in my bios config. My system reads the iBoot disk and begins
and displays header message, then stops...
iBoot is not initializing on my system.

1. booting from USB CD/DVD peripheral (chosen as first boot device)
2. hard drive is 1TB (plan is to partition in OSX upon booting)
