For various reasons I do not want to upgrade up over the 10.6.8 (My daughter got Lion from AppleStore, put over Snow Leopard and cries days'n'nights)
I got:
GIGABYTE B75-D3V / 8GB - 1066MHz
i7 3770 Ivy Bridge -> HD Graphics 4000
SSD 64GB/DVD ...

Till now I successfully installed 10.6.
Update to 10.6.8 -> blue screen or "stale mate" (cyclic reboot)
Unfortunately MultiBeast for Snow Leopard does not support Intel integrated Graphics HD 4000 (IvyBridge)

Any advice? the goal is to run QuickTime and other multimedia applications.

Re-install 10.6.6
Re-download 10.8 install app
create UniBeast installer USB
Install Mountain Lion 10.8
Run MultiBeast to install needed kexts for network/audio and a boot loader.

Sit back and bask in daughter's admiration for a great Pop who knows how to fix things.
