    Yes I will check it out, and report back when I get back to it, in 2 days. I will definitely write back. Thanks....d-1

    FYI, the processor is 32 bit, for 32 bit instruction code, yet it can execute 64 bit instruction as well, hence EM64T. And SL is OSX capable of running in either 32 OR 64 bit mode. So some 10.6.X kexts are x86/x64, means that they work in both modes, some are only x86, 32 bit mode. That was why I asked if your 10.6.3 is in x64.

    Utilities, System profiler, check out your recognized devices. That includes memory, cpu, OSX version, running mode (x86 or x64), etc..

    Then check out Activity Monitor. There are your real time CPU number/usage, memory, system load, etc..

    See what you got.

    Cheers

    @dolphans1

    Hello, I have a similar Biostar Motherboard (GF7100P-M7S), atleast I think it's similar. There is little support regarding Hackintosh for our motherboards. So my question is what method did you use to install Snow Leopard ? I am having a hard time trying to get it installed, i've used the Hazard Distro, Retail DVD-DL , and others and I can't figure it out. So can you please tell me what options you used, and how did you set-up your BIOS ? Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Hi there,
    I've look at your board specs, and it's not the same as dolphans1 board.

    You have the nForce chipsets, and his is Intel G41. So the setup may very well be different.

    What problems did you have with your setup/bios/distro?

    MACHelp, I used the Empire EFI1.1 regular user version _v108.iso, not the Legacy Empire EFI or the i5 one, it was real simple for me to do and had no problems. I have installed it 3 times. I am more a Linux user and not too familar with Mac, though it seems pretty logical to follow.

    Even though I have 4GB of Ram installed, it only shows I have 1GB and 2.97 GHz Unknown, not sure why, unless I installed a 32bit version?

    Ratvn: I reinstalled those realtek audio drivers and I went to audio midi setup, if I am understanding correctly, but it still shows no devices.....(my system setup is listed below)

    I'm I missing a step or something obvious here...?

    Your help is greatly appreciated....

    You also could check Activity monitor to see if it is using 2 core, memory

    From what it said, Power on self test failed because of memory? I would check your BIOS, because it did not recognize one bank.

    You're running 10.6.3 in x86, 32 bit mode only. Your vid card kext is not there.

    Also the Mac ID is not correct, due to EmpireEFI? But not sure if it's just model display or actual hardware.


    EDIT: SL is capable of running in either 32 or 64 bit, depends on how you configure it. Not installing as you said.

    Thanks Ratvn, well gees , I do not know what to say. I have a dual boot system, with Ubuntu and Snow-Leopard on exact same PC and when I boot into Ubuntu and check under "System" it shows Memory at 3.9 GIB, Processor 0: Pentium (R) Dual-Core CPU E6500 @ 2.93 GHZ and Processor 1: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E6500 @ 2.93GHZ with available disk space of 232.0 GB, which I know disk space available on my HD is neither now nor there.

    But what do you make of this, should I try a different boot-loader...?

    Also, I could never figure out the sound issue with audio-mini HDMI.

    I downloaded the kexts for Realtek audio, but it still shows no audio device....

    Thanks, d-1.....

    It showed system specs correctly under Linux, so I would not worry about hardware.
    Did you check under Activity monitor to see if it's using your 2 core, and memory?
    Could be just the wrong injection.

    I do not know how to read it, under CPU It shows Intel 64but to the far right on many of the columns, under CPU > Real> Kind.

    When I click on memory it shows 1GB and the pie chart in colors with how much memory is free and what not.

    When I dual boot, Linux sees two bootable MAC devices, MAC 32bit and Mac-64 bit, and I am not quite sure why it shows this.

    Anyway Ubuntu wont dual boot into either when I try to, so I must used the bootable CD to boot MAC OSX up.

    I resolved my sound issue by buying a USB sound tube by Diamond and the sound Utility notices it very quickly and it sounds great. It looks pretty cool as it lights up blue and blinks, looks like an older picture tube, with mic jack and headphone jacks. ($30.00 at Fry's)

    I am not sure why it installs as a 32bit and does not see the other 3GB of memory, when there are two 2GB sticks.

    I left the BIOS of the board pretty much the same, in other words I made no real changes to it, other than boot order change. I did not disable anything.

    Another issue is my graphics resolution is only 1024 X 768 and the desktop screen does not go edge to edge on the screen. In other words, it wont stretch across, east to west. I can't figure out how to fix this, did a lot of searches and after a while you get tired of reading and hitting dead-ends.

    My graphics card is a Biostar GeForce Series 8400GS with 512MB of DDR2 memory.

    I am trying to tackle the issues one at a time, to get a halfway decent running machine.

    P.S. Just opened the Activity More information box and noticed under general information there is a white box that is unchecked that says 32 bit, I the ability to check it and below it there is another white box (but greyed out that says the word locked.) Just letting you know this, if perhaps it may share a clue.
