Which method did you use?
I used Tony's CD boot beta 3. Work great with the cheap graphic card only though. Gotta do some tricks after to have my Diamond ATI Readeon 4870 to work.
Boot CD: Followed the instructions for rolling your own Chameleon boot. Worked well once I figured out my graphics card challenges and threw in the DSDT for my UD6 board using one from the DSDT database. (I'm now on the hunt for an affordable decent vid card that I can use under OS X and Win7x64 - if I can't get my cheapo 4670 working better, 1024x768 - blah.)
I used the USB Method outlined by Tony, However, I still had issues doing the install, until I copied the mach_kernel from 10.6.2 to the USB stick. Then I managed to get this to work.
none of te oens above actually, i had a working hack which i updated, was also with dsdt so i just prepared a usb stick with all teh needed files on it, changed my ahrdware and hoped it would work (which it did )
Just added 'Other' to this poll and it erased all of the results... Still learning the ropes of this forum software!
Hi I cheated and installed OSX 10.6 to a firewire drive connected to a real mac, then updated to 10.6.2 after which the disk was transferred to the hackintosh
To install Snow Leopard on my box I used the USB stick method. I tried the CD method first but since I have an IDE DVD/Burner drive it would not work!
I then fell back to the USB method which worked great for me. Just had to fix a few problems about audio and sleep (the usual iHacker stuff !).
Can I just say considering the HUGE changes/improvements to the method it's hard to believe it's only been two years... I was gonna go back and find a really old random thread to resurrect for poops and giggles, and I was shocked. So yeah..
