Booting 10.6.3 Retail CD on P5QL-VM-EPU
Ok, after searching google for a week trying to solve my problem, I gave up and decided to ask for help here.
So, when I realized that I could get snow leopard for $30 off amazon, I couldn't resist and I was pretty sure my computer would work perfectly fine for a hackintosh. Once I got the cd, I tried many different methods of booting the retail install cd, all to no avail. I Tried Empire EFI, iBoot Supported and ATI, myHack installer on usb hard drive, EP45UD3P Snow Leopard install package, boot-132, netkas' PC EFI 10.5, none of them worked and brought me to the same kernel panic. (picture attached) I have tried safe mode also, but once it's done loading all the kexts it also kps. I tried using many different boot flags, including cpus=1, -f, -x, busratio=20 but none of it works and it still won't boot.
I have heard from my google searches that with ASUS computers you should get a modified bios, but I can't find any for my specific motherboard.
ASUS CG5270 Desktop
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300
8GB DDR2 RAM
1TB SATA Hard Drive
SATA DVD Drive
ATI Radeon HD 3470
Trying to Install:
Snow Leopard Retail 10.6.3
Please, I want to do this with my disc, NOT torrent one of the hacked distros.
