    Default OSX on x58

    Hello,
    I'm not usually one to post on a forum for help as I usually find most answers in the archive. Unfortunately this VBullitin doesn't like me searching for "X58" or "I7" probably because they are too short of strings. I feel overwhealmed by all this hackintosh stuff and have scoured the internet for months now. I probably should have posted sooner come to think of it. Anyways I believe my problem is quiet unique and people over at EVGA forums have similar issues from what I have found.

    EDIT: I have tried to install hackintosh before on my old build and have failed except for some vanilla kernel install. Then I kept getting kernel panics after the installation which I believe was network. I no longer have any part from that build and cannot get anything to even attempt to load on my new build

    I am trying to triple boot linux, win7 and OSX. I have my drives partitioned and use grub2. Now I have tried the following disks with the command "-v" for verbose mode just so I can follow what is going on.

    iDeneb v1.5.1_1057
    IATKOS (havnt the slightest what version)
    iPC OSX86 10.5.6 Universal PPFS FINAL

    unfortunately on all the disks it simply reboots my motherboard before I can see anything more. I do not know why. I also would like x64 bit installation. This is my setup:

    EVGA X58 FTW3
    Intel Core i7-930
    6GB 240-Pin DDR3 1600

    Should be able to install Leopard with those distros.
    You'd be better with SL, to 10.6.4 for system/kernel support.
    You also would need some boot options to start the installer, particularly your busratio for i7 CPU/chipset.

    Where would I find boot options for the disk I use? What is SL?

    Still nothing, I tried disabling all the cores except one and my computer still reboots on any disk that I try to use. It reboots right after the parameter screen.

    List of parameters to try?
