    Default 10.6.2 Working on Biostar TF570 AMD 5200+

    System Spec:
    Motherboard: Biostar TF570
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 5200+
    MEM: 3Gb OCZ SLi Ready 800MHz DDR2
    Graphics: XFX Geforce 8600GT 256mb
    Harddisks (Sata): 1xMaxtor 320GB, 1xHitachi 250GB, 1x120 Maxtor.
    Optical Drives: 1xLiteOn Sata DVDRW, 1xToshiba IDE DVDR

    Maxtor 320GB = Os Drive , 250GB Hitachi = Media Drive, 120GB Maxtor (2 Partitions, 1x100GB for TimeMachine Backup(Only Backing up OS & installed programs)) ,
    1 20GB for Software for reinstallation(if needed)

    I had installed Mac OsX Snow Leopard first attempt. Had to reinstall about 3 times before getting it up and running properly as I had problems with Bios reset, "waiting for root device" and Graphic card driver issues.
    I installed Snow leopard by by following Hardknox's guide and then to my booting 10.5.8 and then installing from there on a separate HD. Before the final step of repairing permissions,
    I copied over the kexts I needed for BIOS reset, NForceATA to the extensions folder, then repaired permissions.
    I had an issue with the graphics drivers, Waiting for root device and Bios reset faults initially. I used NVKush for th Graphics(full Quartz enabled)
    and then copied the AppleNForceATA kext from my 10.5.8 install to solve the Waiting for root device problem.

    I have now updated my system to 10.6.2 via the apple update utility and I must admit, this thing is a beauty.

    Boot time = 1min 5secs.

    Just wanted to share my specs and experience with you guys.
