    Followed this guide:
    http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/ ... -x-on.html

    What I've used:
    - A Lenovo ThinkPad R61-7732
    - A Bootable CD of iBoot 3.1.1
    - A MAC OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard "Retail" DVD
    - MultiBeast 3.8.0 software

    What I've done:
    1. Boot the laptop with the iBoot CD.
    2. At the boot prompt, eject the iBoot CD.
    3. Insert the MAC OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD.
    4. Press F5.
    5. When the DVD is recognized, press ENTER to begin the boot process.
    6. Follow tonymacx86's guide to install MAC OS X Leopard.
    7. After the reboot, open MultiBeast and only install "EasyBeast Install".
    8. Open System Preference -> Software update and search for updates.
    9. Select the MAC OS X 10.6.8 Combo Updates.
    10. Install the update and reboot (with the iBoot CD still inserted).
    11. Open MultiBeast again and install these components:
    >>> EasyBeast Install
    >>> System Utilities
    >>> Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kexts & Enablers -> Audio -> Universal -> VoodooHDA 0.2.1
    >>> Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kexts & Enablers -> Miscellaneous -> Voodoo PS/2 Controller
    >>> Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kexts & Enablers -> Network -> hnak's AppleIntelE1000e Ethernet
    12. Eject the iBoot CD.
    13. Restart.

    What doesn't work (yet):
    - WLAN
    - Bluetooth
    - Restart after waking up from sleep

    What to watch out:
    - Sometimes, the LAN doesn't work after a warm boot. The yellow led stays lit and doesn't blink. Need to do a cold boot.
    - If the Voodoo PS/2 Controller Kext is not installed, the integrated keyboard and touchpad won't work. Need to have an USB keyboard and mouse near by.
    - A "retail" unaltered MAC OS X DVD is very important. With an altered DVD, the OS installation could work but you can't boot directly from the hard drive. You need to boot from the iBoot CD.

    I'm reading it. Looking for information about the original Snow Leopard's kexts. My my original 10.6.3 DVD seems to be damaged.
