    Default iBoot/Multibeast not loading install disc- hardware incompatibility?

    Hey, I'm a bit new to the hackintosh scene, but not to macs, or computers in general. I just decided to make a hackintosh out of my newly built desktop computer, and to do so, I was following a tutorial posted on lifehacker, which employed iBoot/Multibeast to do the trick. The iBoot disc boots up, I put in my legit copy of snow leopard 10.6.3 retail, and it starts load. After about a minute of the white apple screen, I get a crossed circle icon, and the disk drive spins down. I believe all my settings are right in BIOS(ACHI HDD mode, boot sequence, etc.), and since iBoot had started up the OS X dvd, I doubt that's the problem. And I have used that disc for restoring my macbook unibody, so I know that works too. This leaves me with hardware that could be the culprit. Since I don't know where to look for a definitive hardware compatibility list, I decided to post here. Any help would be extremely appreciated!

    - Asus P7P55 LX LGA 1156 intel motherboard
    - Intel Core i7 875k
    - 4x2GB Mushkin enhanced silverline memory. (DDR3, PC3-10666, 9-9-9-24)
    I took out all but one stick because I read somewhere that iBoot won't work properly with more than 4GB memory.
    - Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 edition, 2GB GDDR5 memory
    - LG Super Multi DVD+R DL burner with lightscribe
    - Aluminum USB Apple Keyboard with Numberpad
    - Microsoft USB Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000
    - An old no-name PS/2 keyboard I use with iBoot, since it doesn't like my usb Keyboard

    Hi, I am having the exact same problem, just as you described. The crossed circle icon appears... Have you found a solution to this? I would be glad to know a workaround.

    Default How to

    Hello

    I got it installed on my machine fine, dual booted now actually.

    As you said; yes you do need AHCI enabled on the bored.
    Please just follow my set up

    Enable AHCI
    First boot drive; CD/ DVD drive
    Boot from CD (iboot; then wait about 30 secs after the boot loader has loaded.
    Insert your retail copy of Snow leopard (or your copied DVD w/e) wait about 10 secs Then press F5 once.

    You should see a CD image with something like snow leopard below it.
    Press enter; your set up should begin.

    If not; then do say..
