I will give $20 to someone who can get OSX working on my HTPC!
Out of pure frustration and many wasted downloaded ISO's I thought I would throw out the question to you guys and to the person who get's it working for me I will give them $20. I currently have a Zotac Ion ITX A-U motherboard.
What I would like to achieve is have Windows 7 on one partition and Mac OS X on the other and having the option to Dual Boot in to either system on boot.
What OSX86 release would you recommend for my set up with the appropriate kexts?
If anyone could help me that would be great.
And a reminder that the person who gets this working on my system will get $20.

I have an:
- Intel Atom 330 'Dual Core'
- Zotac Ion ITX A-U Motherboard
- 2GB DDR2 RAM
- 320GB WD SATA HD + 1TB Media Drive
- Windows 7 64bit
- Blu-Ray Player.
I am happy to use any distro, just as long as it supports my specs.
I have downloaded so many other distros I have lost count. Mostly every time I try to launch the installer I get a kernel panic with the message:
"Should have 2 cores but only found 1 for die 0" along with lots of other text which I can post a screen grab of later.
Thanks in advance.

What distros have you tried so far? Also what settings did you select under custom?
DV1300 - iDeneb 10.5.8
DV4 - iPC 10.5.6-Some bugs.
MBP 15" i5
iMac 17" G4
don't use a distro.
Search/google for myHack and build your bootdisc and install with retail snowleopard 10.6.0.
If all goes well, you should have a working system.
Don't update to 10.6.2 because the kernel in 10.6.2 will not support Atom Processor. You would need to get a patched kernel for that before doing an update to 10.6.2

I have created the bootable USB using the MyHack software however when I try to go in to the BIOS settings to boot from the USB on my HTPC it comes up with this message:
"Auto detecting USB Mass Storage Devics..
Device #01: "
It just stays there and doesn't move.
I am also trying it on another external hard drive however I get this message on Disk Utility after I try to restore to the disk image:
"Could not finish mounting volumes on /dev/disk1s2"

I have managed to successfully boot the myhack drive however when I turn on my HTPC to boot in to the installer I get this error:

I feel your pain! As the proud owner of a Zotac IONITX-D-E (pretty much exactly the same computer), I saw kernel panics when using the instructions here: Full solution for Zotac IONITX Atom 330 for 10.6.x SL - InsanelyMac Forum and I saw the same error as you when using the myhack installer. Basically, the problem is simple, but the fix eluded me for a while: if you boot into verbose mode (using the -v boot flag) you'll see it get hung up on your computer handing control of your usb stick over to the OSX installer. After working at it for about a week, I just today managed to get it working. Here's what I did:
Go into your BIOS and go to the CPU management. Change Hyper-Threading to Disabled. Go to USB management and change USB Legacy to Auto, speed to 12mbps (I can't remember whether it's hispeed or fullspeed, but it's basically the one that isn't selected by default)
You're also going to need a special patched Chameleon bootloader to do the hand-off successfully. Luckily, I've already made one up. It's basically Chameleon RC4 compiled with the USB patch from here: USBLegacyOff - Experimental [Patch].
And here's the bootloader (via megaupload): MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
Anyway, that should do the trick. Make absolutely sure you create space on your HDD for Snow Leopard BEFORE running the installer, because it can't resize an NTFS partition. Also, keep in mind that the installation will take a very, very long time since you're running it at USB 1.1 speed.
Let me know how it goes!
Thanks for the tip. I have done everything that you have suggested in your tutorial however I still have the same problem where it would not get past the apple boot logo even after doing your suggested steps. Any ideas?
Alright, first just make sure that you have all kernel extensions from Full solution for Zotac IONITX Atom 330 for 10.6.x SL - InsanelyMac Forum in your /Extra/Extensions directory. Don't use anything else--just the extensions. Next, run pfix, which is a tool that the myhack installer puts on your usb drive. You'll have to run it using sudo, obviously.
Anyway, with all that done, boot into the install disk with the -v flag turned on for verbose mode. If you get an error or it hangs, get me the corresponding lines of text.
