    Try removing one of your sticks of RAM so that you have 4 GB (recommendation from TonyMac site - you can add it back in after the install is successful), also unplug the storage HDD so that there is only one possible drive in the system.

    Double check your BIOS settings (particularly the SATA/RAID/AHCI), it should be set to AHCI.

    Give that a try and see if it makes any difference.

    As i said in my previous post, i followed all the steps to the letter.
    Nothing worked.
    I managed to install iAtkos and get in 1 time, with busratio=21, but after that i'm getting stuck at apple screen again with a black box in the middle saying i need to reboot my computer.

    Tried the busration=21 method for vanilla a.k.a retail install but it did not work.

    A few sites reported your error (not exactly the same circumstances) and suggested that it might be a hard drive corruption or failure. Try installing to your other HDD instead......might be worth a try !!

    Here are a couple of links to guides for your mobo from the TonyMac site. Not exactly the same, one is rev. 2 and other is using ATI GPU (but same rev. and BIOS), it might be useful to pick through their comments and look at what they did.

    tonymacx86 Forum • View topic - Guide Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R v2.0, i7-930 and GTX 460

    tonymacx86 Forum • View topic - Guide- Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Rev. 1.0, i7 930 and ATI 5850

    Your hardware seems to be compatible and I cannot see why this will not work for you, although, this is not an exact science.

    Its not harddrive corruption.....thanks for looking though.
    I looked over those guides, those guys don't encounter any error of this kind......

    I was not suggesting that you would find your specific error in their guides. I wanted you to look at what they did and the steps that they went through to see if anything was different from what you did. It is easy to miss a step and you end up kicking yourself after the fact (speaking from experience).

    Something else to consider....I have tried using copies of the Snow Leopard retail DVD as I did not want to damage the original. In all cases I could never use any of the copies that I made (even if I burned them slow). I just "Googled" this and it would appear that it is a common issue even for users of genuine Mac.

    Your problem seems to be different, but one thing I have found from this process is that you cannot make assumptions.
