iATKOS v7 on Abit AA8
I read in this page HCL 10.5.8 - OSx86 that my motherboard does indeed work with OS X and this was the method to do it. I tried installing it with all the drivers selected that I had. I selected all the correct ones and I'm not sure what to do now because when my machine boots it goes through the Chameleon boot menu and then the apple logo comes up and the hard drive stops spinning and the machine hangs. I know it can be done from the post on Wikipedia and I am using iATKOS to install OS X. I am using a 64 bit hyperthreaded processor. It's a Pentium 4 650 running at 3.4 GHz. I am trying to figure out why it hangs. Here is the typed list of hardware that appears under the hardware button in the menu.

I tried wiping the 40 GB HD I have with MBR or GUID and it didn't fix anything. Do I have incompatible RAM? Am I missing something? Is my Bios not set up right?
This is an earlier thread from the forum infinitemac.com
Getting OS X Snow Leopard to work with ABIT AA8 Duramax
I have read up on how it seems fairly easy (at least compatible) to modify my existing hardware to boot OS X 10.6.
I have an AA8 Duramax and I just updated the bios to the newest one because the old one was five years old. It has a 64 bit Intel Pentium 4 (3.4 GHz) with hyperthreading. If possible I would like to boot a 64 bit Snow Leopard and also have hyperthreading work. This is the chipset it has.
Intel 925X / Intel ICH6R Express Chipset.
It also has SSE2 and 3.
It also has an ATI X300? (Windows actually doesn't know, it names three different cards) but it is a 256 MB Dual Dvi card and I was wondering if it would work with OSX as well. If not, no worries.
I also have 4 GB of RAM installed and three hard drives at my disposal (the one I want to put the OS on is a 40 GB 7200 RPM Western Digital).
I already loaded the Snow Leopard ISO onto an 8 GB cruzer flash drive and am now ready to edit the files on it so it will boot on my desktop. I also have a Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard and I've done all my work on that thus far. I have a liquid cooling kit on it and I was wondering how OS X does with overclocking?
Anyway I would just like to know for starters what to do now that I've successfully loaded the flash drive and I was curious if anyone has done this on a P4 or with this board.
Thanks guys, look forward to your advice.
