AHCI mode is called Enhanced...from the manual

ATA/IDE Configuration
Please select [Compatible] when you install legacy OS (Windows® NT). If
native OS (Windows® 7 / VistaTM / XP) is installed, please select [Enhanced].

You might try swapping the DVD/HDD ports as some motherboards are picky when installing Snow Leopard

The AnVAL question is answered in the following thread:

http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php ... 9&start=20

So, you have set BIOS as possible to enhanced IDE (AHCI), HPET, boot order, correct?

Is there a RAID option? I know you stated there is no AHCI to choose....so it will be either enhanced or RAID.

You have inserted iBoot disk (what version are you using)?

Do you get a Chameleon screen at all, ever?

Exactly what happens, if there is text on the screen, take a screenshot and post it.

Did you try iBoot Legacy....it supports older processors better?

When you assembled the computer, there were a number of SATA connectors on the board. Can you determine which ones the HDD and DVD cables are connected to?

Can you try swapping the plugs between SATA 0 and 1, some boards are picky...

Report in detail what happens and we can go from there.
