    Default Can't install Snow Leopard on AMD PII 940

    Hello, first of all, I want to congratulate you for this great forum, It have been really helpful!

    Now let's get down to business: I've been trying to install Mac for two months. I used a few iAKTOS versions and some others with not accomplishment. I've burn like 10 DVDs already, the last one is a Snow Leopard Retail (about 6GB) and a CD with EmpireEFI4AMD (EmpireEFI4AMD_SB600_support_added.iso) to boot.

    Computer specs:
    CPU: AMD Phenom II x 4 940 3.0Ghz
    MB: Asrock N61P-S
    RAM: 4GB (Generic 667Mhz)
    GPU: Sapphire ATI HD 2400 XT 256M 64 BIT GDDR3
    HD: Western Digitan 160GB IDE

    I know this specs aren't the best but they're all I can get for now (This is a favor for a tv channel with low budget, they're using a Hackinstosh with a Intel Celeron@1.8Ghz and they can't buy a iMac yet so this is pretty much all their hope).

    It boot fine with the EmpireEFI until I ejected the cd and put the Snow Leopard DVD and hit F5, after a few seconds it freeze so I just insert the Snow Leopard DVD and hit enter. When it starts booting a got a panic message right away. This is the panic:

    HTML Code:
    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x55aa33): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/Extra/builds/xnu/xnu-1456.1.26/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1393

    What should I do to install Mac on this PC?

    Thanks in advance and God bless!
