Hey guys!
So i have a teeny tiny problem that I can't seem to fix.

So i finally got Mac OSX 10.6.3 installed on my dual booted computer, right? (I took out the other HDD) I used the update helper before doing the update because my cpu is a sandybridge intel core i7, but when I ran the updater when it was 3/4's done (about 1 minute left), I got this screen:

This has happened twice so far. So I can easily go back and redo this as many times as I please, but I keep getting the same result. When I try to get into the mac after this error through iboot (since I can't get to the multibeast part), it won't let me in regardless if I use GraphicsEnabler or safe mode, or those other codes.

I suspect it may be my graphics card, which is a GeForce GTX 580, because in order to install this thing in the first place i had to use the GraphicsEnabler code. My monitor is hooked up to the graphics card, maybe I should hook it up to my motherboard instead? Or unhook my graphics card entirely while doing this?

I am aware of tonymac's Nvidia post about these graphics cards http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2012/03/optimizing-nvidia-geforce-4xx-and-5xx.html but I can't get to the multibeast part to actually do anything. And should I run CUDA before I do the update, or will the update remove it?

What should I do?

Edit 1:
I am posting what I have on my custom build:
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16813121506
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16819115070
Graphics Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16814130590

Also, in multibeast, I don't see any Nvidia options in the Graphics section as stated in this post: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2012/03/optimizing-nvidia-geforce-4xx-and-5xx.html
And I cannot update the Nvidia with the driver I downloaded. I get stuck on a specific screen. I will attach the photos. Please help. (sorry. I can't seem to make these images smaller no matter how much i resize them...and the uploader didn't work on here either)

run update helper first, restart then run 10.6.8.

I usually go 10.6.3 to 10.6.7, restart then run update helper, restart, then run 10.6.8 then run multibeast.

It will KP otherwise and give you that issue.

Does it give you an error when booting from chimera, or does it not pop up at all? If there is an error can you take a snapshot? Worst case scenario try chameleon see if it works then re-install chimera.

What is "update helper" ???

Same issues here when updating from 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 the system hangs while booting.
When booting in Verbose-Mode, the system hangs on [PCI configuration begin]. :banghead: :banghead:

For Sandy Bridge users updating to OS X 10.6.8 ONLY, so if your motherboard is the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4-F14, it doesn't apply to you because it's not Sandy Bridge.

There is a PCI Configuration fix in MultiBeast.

In the meantime, try booting with the PCIRootUID=1 flag.

You need to select and install Chimera and FakeSMC in MultiBeast to boot from the hard drive.
