Hi all,

So I've been fighting with this for the past several days and I can't seem to make any progress. I think a large part of the problem is I don't know exactly WHY it's failing to boot up. In any case, here is a picture of the final screen (sorry, it's a photo, but I don't know how to take a screen cap in it's current state): http://i.imgur.com/JLGRf.jpg

Basically I am running a GA-P67A-UD5-B3 board, latest BIOS from gigabyte, I have tweaked settings in the BIOS as best as I could. I've been following the guide and using the software from [GUIDE] Retail Snow Leopard (10.6.7) and Lion DP2 Install on Gigabyte Mobos (Core i7) - InsanelyMac Forum as they are using a similar board.

I go to the point where I just shoved EVERY kext that was available in the hopes it would work.

Does anyone see anything obvious that is being output for the reason it's not working?

Thanks very much, I am getting frustrated, but I really want to use Final Cut Pro on this wicked fast i5 lol.

By the way, I'm starting to wonder if it's possible do even do a fresh install for my hackintosh? I see a lot of other posts about installed 10.6.5, 10.6.6, etc. Obviously what I'm trying to install is 10.6.0 because I have a retail SL disc. As per the instructions I was following, the app actually installs SL using an existing Mac do an external drive, which I've done. It seemed like the cleanest way.

Anyway, thanks for any help you can provide!
