    Default Installing Snow Leopard on custom pc

    Hi guys, Could you point me to any step by step tutorials that would be the best for my custom pc, please? Thanks

    What I have:
    I have a Retail copy of Snow Leopard OS X 10.6, a 8GB USB Pen Drive (I've read it may be needed) and the Specs for the system is:
    Mobo: MSI P43 Neo (I think it's regular Neo but could Neo-F I will check soon)
    Processor: Intel Dual Core E5400 (2.80GHZ)
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400 GT
    Other stuff: 1x WD 320GB Harddrive(Sata), 1x Seagate 1.5TB Harddrive (Sata), 2x 2GB DDR Ram, DVD Drive (IDE) I think I will remove the 320GB Harddrive as I thought it may make it run a bit smoother then having two.

    I tried to respond to you but included a URL and was told an admin needs to review my post.

    Google search "boot 132".

    here is what you need to do:

    #1 - Burn .iso on a CD;
    #2 - Boot this CD;
    #3 - When Darwin prompt appear, eject CD and put Mac OS X Leopard Retail DVD;
    #4 - Press enter (or -v and enter...wherever...)
    #5 - After install, boot using CD boot again and install .kext needed...and usual files.
    #6 - Done!

    For the time being, you cannot have this bootloader on an USB stick and have it boot the Retail Leopard DVD. The reason why this
    happens is related to the way the BIOS handles DVDs and optical media: there's no BOOT DEVICE associated with an optical drive
    which the BIOS has not booted from. Basically, this is like the disk swap trick known to the PlayStation gamers.
    You can already put this on an USB stick/CD/DVD and boot a vanilla install (vanilla= no added kext, no replaced kext on the partition).
