    Yup, you wont be able to boot into leopard, maybe with cpus=1

    Try asking to macnut for a new MOD, it think it cost like $5, not sure... if you get it share it with us.

    Default Snow Leopard and my 8430f HP Pavillion

    I've been running Leopard up to 10.5.8 from retail and chameleon with help of this guide for months.

    I did a clean install of SL that went very well using latest chameleon: 64bit kernel and kexts for video and LAN worked out of the box. No special EFI strings or hacked kexts required.

    But, no FW, no audio.

    I switched to arch=i386 to try out legacy 32bit kexts for audio, but no love for legacy HDA stuff from this guide (KP), no love from SL kext link below. However, RALINK 2870 1.3.0 32bit leopard kext worked fine for my Linksys USB Wifi 802.11N. I have high hopes RALINK will post Snow Leopard drivers soon, as they have been Mac friendly to date and I may be able to go back to pure 64bit; more bragging rights than anything practical.

    forrestsun, let us know how you made out with Snow Leopard and audio.

    Anyone recommend USB audio for SL? Anyone get the ICH9 audio going in SL?

    Default RE: Snow Leopard and my 8430f HP Pavillion

    Hey icchansan,

    google "hackintosh snow leopard install guide" gives:

    How to Build a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, Start to Finish - Hackintosh - Lifehacker



    Snow Leopard was even easier than leopard as long as you have the patched BIOS you so graciously shared with us all.

    I used blank USB drive to install leopard on and back up my user settings from leopard, then booted to it, and followed the guide (basically the only trick is to use the OSInstall.mpkg directly, not the installer application itself). I did grab a later Chameleon that was posted at the chameleon home page a couple of days after this guide, this avoided the DSDT fiddling.

    Like I said no tricks for video, it just works (including CI/QE, but I have a 8800GT, not the 8400/8500/8600 some others have). No tricks for wired Ethernet, just works. Chameleon uses 64bit kernel/kexts by default.

    Again, I didn't need to insert EFI strings anywhere or anything like that. Snow Leopard seems to detect my 8800GT (BFG 512MB if that matters).

    I haven't had the RT73 WLAN connected for a while, I bought a Linksys WUSB600N (Dual band 2.4GHz + 5GHz Ralink Technology: Home for the driver) USB adapter. USB adapter doesn't have 64bit kext, so I had to set arch=i386 kernel flag to boot 32bit. Again, video, ethernet just worked in 32bit.

    FW and audio is not working, (which did work for me in Leopard).

    FW I rarely use, so no biggie. But audio is where I am stuck. Hacked 32bit leopard kext from this guide kernel panics snow leopard.

    Default Snow Leopard and my 8430f HP Pavillion redux

    I plugged in an old Sound Blaster Audigy NX USB sound card that was gathering dust, and again it just worked. It was automatically detected when I plugged it in, just started working, not reboot, no hunting of hacked kexts or anything.

    I gotta say I'm loving Snow Leopard on my Hackintosh.

    On the other hand, my macmini (old Core Duo, 1.66GHz, 32bit only, 2GB Ram) doesn't like the upgrade to Snow Leopard. Feels slower; lots of beach balls.

    If I do eventually find a audio solution I will post back. BTW, since 10.6.1, the ram shows up as 4GB 1600MHz DDR3, what an upgrade

    For those with a spare blank drive to try out I recommend spending the $29 and trying it out. Hackintosh has never been this easy to get going.

    Cheers,

    BHTM

    Great work and thanks for sharing! I briefly tried SL install and yes audio is the only thing not working (well, plus sleep). For that I went back to Leopard 10.5.7 where I have audio working in both analog and digital.

    Btw, i know OSX will detect our network card fine but the speed was limited at 10Mbps. This is a big issue to me who needs to access a network storage device. It took me some time to find the official Realtek driver for mac, which installs well and allow the LAN to function at 100Mbps.

    Icchan, i have one question regarding the bios. As i mention previously, my mobo is IPIBL-LA and been downgraded to bios 5.08. You said that os x will not boot if i update it back to 5.13. Is there any setting/feature in 5.13 that preventing os x from booting? Or its not compatible with os x? Coz i intended to update the bios. Cannot live with this crazy cmos clock.
