    Hmmm. As I mentioned in your other thread, your choices are more limited and your path to success more fraught with headaches because A) you have an AMD CPU, and B) a non-Intel motherboard.

    A) is fairly easily dealt with by using a hacked kernel - I forget what the options are for 10.5.x, but for 10.6.x you have chocolate_kernel and legacy_kernel available, amongst others.

    B) ... Dunno mate. You'll have to do some legwork hunting down how to get nVidia motherboards working. I've always been anal with regards to hardware, sticking with intel all the way, so I've never faced this problem.

    First off, try a 10.5.x install. Leopard is more mature as a Hackintosh and there are far more drivers for it than there are Snow Leopard. Hunt down a generic USB image - one for people to use on multiple computers with minimal graphics/sound support. Get THAT working first. Then try out IATKOS v7, IIRC its the most popular because it tends to work. You just have to set it up properly.

    Second, try Snow Leopard. Check out the Hazard distro, and also check out the forum over at tonymacx86 Forum • Index page - those guys are really helpful and you don't get the grief you get in other places.

    Thirdly, regarding bootloaders, I recommend AsereBLN's booter because he's implemented alot of bug fixes and additional features that have proven useful for me.

    Finally, kexts.com is your friend!
