Hackintosh on my Biostar A770E - AMD Machine
So this is the thread that I'm going to use to pose questions that I have about installing OSX on my system, and eventually the guide I post when I finally do get it up and working.
Ok. So I'm trying to install SL on my system.
Here's my hardware:
Biostar A770E mainboard
AMD Athlon X2 4400+
4 gigs of DDR2 (667)
Segate 320GB HDD (this is the one I'm going to try to dual boot Windows 7 and OSX SL on)
Western Digital 500GB (data drive)
I heard that for an AMD machine, Hazard is the best way to go, so that is what I will be using for my kernel.
You shouldnt have a problem i have similar system up and running.
Ok, so installation went great. I used disk utility to set up two partitions on my drive, one for Windows and one for OSX. Green arrow, clicked restart, got a grey screen, saw the spinny loading thing, and KP.
When I rebooted without the disk, it immediately booted into windows (which I installed before SL), and after installing EasyBCD I can't seem to boot into OSX, as if the OSX bootloader wasn't even installed.
Edit #1: The .iso file that I downloaded is "Snow Leopard Client Server 10.6.2 SSE2/SSE3 Intel AMD by Hazard"

what did you select in the custom install? seems like you chose a wrong driver
Where was the custom install? I didn't see that anywhere in the install process.
Here are my steps and all my settings.
System: windows 7 32bit
processor: Amd athlon x2 5200 64
audio: legacy hd
network: broadcom 440x
I already had win 7 installed & partitioned it for mac (Win 7 1st, Mac 2nd)
After boot from dvd, press F8
type in, -v -xarch=i386 (arch section is needed when 32bit)
after it runs, do the disk utility - select partition u created, hit erase, then select mac osx (journaled) and name your partition, hit erase (need to erase after each attempt wen your adjusting your settings or you'll get an error), wen done quit disk utility. Hit continue accept agreement, select drive hit continue (i think it says continue) select custom and here are my settings.
Mac osx 10.6.2
Bootloader: chameleon rc3 Pce Fi 10.5 (dont knw why it says pc only on mine but ignore that)
Kernel: Legacy 10.2.0
Audio: NONE (picked it up on its own)
Network: still working on network (ideas will be nice)
Hit done, install and you should be good. If problems occur such as mac logo then restart automatically or black screen after logo. It's your graphic setting or Network settings so don't freak, just adjust them (CHOOSE Only 1) till it starts up fine. As posted up top, they worked for me.
Let me know how it goes!
thanx for the screen shot bud! good team work lol
Heh. Thanks. I feel like an idiot for missing that the 10 times I've tried to install. Homer moment. "DOPE"
