    Unable to install (Hazard's ISO Snow Leopard 10.6.1-10.6.2 Intel/AMD) in my PC (with AMD/Nvidia).
    But running successfully within Vmware Workstation 7.1.3. Works nice as I have dedicated 3GB ram to it. Virtualbox not working. Vmware Player also work. Need external boot-loaders BOOT-KABYL-BUMBY from *** ifile.it /mfj0sa5 (remove spaces)***
    Works great.

    Setup a Snow Leopard 10.6.8 hackintosh on a Dell desktop over the weekend. Use the iboot/multibeast method. Very easy on most intel chipset computers.

    hi,
    i work as an supportdesk employee for every day problems.
    im pretty up to date with windows.
    unfortunatly becouse of my hatred for apple the company never touched a mac or mac os.
    and now we get customers with mac's who i need to reffer to our apple guy.
    what are the most common os's ? snow leopard or lion.
    and anyone know anyplace i can get a virtual disk for those ? so i can start learning the tricks of the trait on mac's.
    help me IT ninja's you are my last hope :p:worthy:

    Not really a headache if you have a gigabyte board, and use kakewalk boot manager, it was a peice of cake and ran so good I bought an Imac that I use now. Gave my pc away.

    Maybe you should try an OS X version that is more current. I have Snow Leopard (10.6.8)on my real imac and it's problem free. I was using win 7 and firewire kept locking it up, so I went fulltime to OS X. Even used Lion, but it has some flakey issues that cause hard freezes still, so back to snow leopard. I also use windows in bootcamp, and I'd say it's just as stable except firewire issues (which they don't care, or can't fix.)

    Installed iATKOS V2 on gigabyte P35, core2duo e6750, 4GB ram, ide HD, nvidia 8600GT - works like a dream. Office for mac and adobe suite installed as well. :biggrin5:
    Didn't recognize my wireless card but thats pretty old anyway - ethernet works np. Sound is realtek onboard.
