    Default hackintosh with retail 10.6.3 disc

    Hi

    I am a noob who is trying to use my 10.6.3 install disc from my MBP to install a hackintosh on my pc.

    I am using the myhack tools and have followed the guide on osx86.sojugarden.com/installer/

    Everything works until my PC gets stuck on the preparing installation screen. Is it not possible to make a hackintosh with the 10.6.3 disc? Do I need a 10.6 disc and then upgrade afterwards?

    My hardware is:
    Mainboard: gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3P
    cpu: intel core2 duo e8400 3ghz
    4 gb memory
    gfx: nvidia 8800 gt

    I fare as I unterstand it this hardware should be usable for a hackintosh is that correct?

    Yep from what hardware you listed it should be compatible . Did you set your BIOS to AHCI before installing?

    Umm I'm not sure, but as long as the disc is a regular disc and not just an upgrade disc, it should work the same as a 10.6 or 10.6.2 except for maybe needing to change some kext.


    EDIT: If you would like to try a different approach you can try using a different script see post #67 here.

    I will do a little more research so see if I have to do anything special with some extra kexts or something.

    More research is always a good thing, you might want to try removing IONetworkingFamily.kext from myhack as well. Good Luck and BTW Welcome to Hackint0sh.

    Default 10.6.3 upgrade disc

    I am working on my Dell D420 trying to get a retail install working instead of iatkos or kalyway. I have a perfectly running 10.5.7 (except dual core, still working on that)

    I bought a 10.6.3 upgrade disk the other day and tried empire, boot132, and the D620v1.iso boot discs. Closest I get is the apple logo and the pinwheel, then a circle with a slash in it comes up over the apple logo and the whole install stops.

    I dont think this 10.6.3 upgrade disk is going to work.

    thought i would go semi legit, but its back to iatkos for now.

    No I have not made it work yet

    One time a mac menu bar appeared in the top where I could choose to start disk tools and so forth. But before I managed to do anything it was gone and only the preparing installation part was left. I don't know why this happened.

    And just to make it clear it is a full retail disc I am using, not an upgrade disc.

    they(efix forum) say 29$ upgrade disk is a full Snow Leopard installer package that you can install flawlessly.
