    Default Patched Snow Leopard 10.6.3 for installing to MBR?

    Alright, so I've got the dmg for an original SL 10.6.3 Install Disk (10D575). I restored the dmg to my 8GB USB flash drive and patched it using files from OSInstall 10.6.3 (10D575) patched for MBR partitioned hard disks Deviato

    My problem is that iboot 2.0 doesnt recognise my USB and its some problem with iboot and the USB drivers it uses so I'd like to use a patched install disk. How do I safely burn this patched install disk? I'm scared that if I just burn the contents off the USB stick to a DL disk it wont work since the DVD has to be made bootable as well. Any suggestions/ideas regarding this?

    Hi,
    I'm afraid that you're right.
    That disk is Hybrid-ISO. Boot sectors for mac and windows are different.
    Need to find the correct softwares otherwise it won't work.

    I thought you still have v7 running on your system

    Yes, I know, did you read my post on the other thread about kernel support?
    I asked about v7 because you could use it to install SL.

    Yeah but will I be able to use a patched USB to install it over Leopard? I dont know how that would work. Would be nice of you if I could get brief instructions or something.

    It's fairly simple. You could just replace those two files then start the installation.
    I only had to replace OSInstall.mpkg to make it works with MBR.
    And from retail DVD installation, you will need to have OSX support/patched files and just your hardware patches/drivers for it to run.

    So I just patch the files as reqd and start OSinstall.pkg in Leopard itself? what about core i7 support and all that? isnt anything of that sort reqd? The problem is that if my install crashes or anything I will be stuck with an empty partition and am scared that I wont be able to boot into Win7 then.
