For those of you looking to run Snow Leopard on Broadwell CPUs, know that official kernel support and CPU support is not in the OS at all. As a matter of fact, the 2nd gen Sandy Bridge CPUs were only supported starting with 10.6.8. Users have had mixed results using the (now ancient) iBoot Legacy for a fresh install, as shown in the Simplest Mac OS X Installation Guide. So we made a new boot CD just for Broadwell CPUs called iBoot Broadwell.
Use the default iBoot + MultiBeast guide, but simply substitute iBoot Broadwell for the default iBoot. With this boot CD, I was able to achieve the following without access to a computer running OS X.
1. Install 10.6 Snow Leopard
2. Update to 10.6.8 Snow Leopard
3. Download OS X Yosemite 10.10 from App Store
4. Create UniBeast USB to install OS X Yosemite 10.10
All without doing any post-installation- just booting directly from iBoot Broadwell. The ultimate goal being OS X Yosemite.
iBoot for Broadwell 1.0.0 is now available in tonymacx86 Downloads.
