Hello there :headbang:

I'm trying to install Snow Leopard on Asus H61M-k and i3 3240
Here's what I've already done :
  • Flash CM BIOS to the lastest version available on Asus website (v0801)

  • Download and burn the lastest available iBoot (v3.3.0)
  • Download and burn the lastest available iBoot for Ivy Bridge (v 1.1.0)
  • Disable in BIOS :
    • Limit CPUID Maximum
    • Intel Virtualization Technology
  • Set as AHCI "SATA Mode selection"
  • Set CD as first boot device

I bought Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3 "Install DVD", it's mentionned at the side of the DVD box "MAC OS X V10.6.3 RETAIL"

I start on iBoot CD, type -v -x arguments and I block on a black screen, nothing happend.
I start on iBoot Ivy Bridge -v -x argeuments, and I block on this screen :

What missed I to make it work ?

Thanks

Nicolas

H61 is Sandy Bridge - use standard iBoot.

Double check BIOS settings

Boot -v PCIRootUID=0 or -v PCIRootUID=1

Post pic of results.

Also, HD2500 gfx on the CPU is unsupported - you need a discrete GPU that is supported in SL.

Sorry, what is SL ?

I have a ATI HD3450 is it OK ?
Must I disable something in the BIOS for the integrated graphic controler ?

Thanks

EDIT :
I installed my graphic card ATI HD3450.

Booting with iBoot :
  • -v PCIRootUID=0 : List hardware then black screen
  • -v PCIRootUID=1 : List hardware then black screen

SL = Snow Leopard

Unsupported graphics card - see http://www.tonymacx86.com/wiki/index.php/Graphics_Card_Database for supported cards

You might try with -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes and see what happens.
