    Exclamation Problems with getting OS X to boot/install: ASRock P55M Pro, Nvidia 7200GS

    Okay guys, I've been searching, sticky-reading, FAQ'ing like mad all over the place but I'm having trouble getting anything to work with my configuration:

    ASRock P55M Pro
    8GB DDR3-1066
    Intel Core i3-530
    Nvidia 7200GS 256MB updated
    1x WD 250GB SATA, 2x WD 1TB Sata

    The first thing I tried to do was install plain Vanilla with iBoot and MultiBeast from TonyMac86 website.

    With iBoot Supported, I can get it to install, but only in safe mode. Running MultiBeast still does not allow it to boot on its own. If I try to use the iBoot ATI, I can't get it to install in regular or safe mode (the OSX gray splash screen pops up for a second and then goes away).

    Next, I downloaded SnowOSX Universal and iATKOS S3 v2. Both discs don't seem to want to start up, they both flash the OSX splash screen for a second and then reset the PC).

    What am I missing? To me this clearly seems like a graphics issue, but I know that there are dozens of successful people running configs similar to mine, with ATI 4350's, P55 mobos, etc.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated! This isn't my first time with OSX86 but it's my first time with Snow Leopard and things are getting mighty complicated.

    Once you successfully installed SL, you will need to boot in safe mode, go to S/L/E and delete all ATI Kexts and restart after which base on your hardware install fix/kexts for your system. Hope this helps a little.

    I never installed any ATI kexts, just ran MultiBeast in Easy Supported Mode, and with the DSDT for my motherboard. But there will be kexts I need to delete there?

    Is there some fool-proof index of hardware kexts I'm missing? I've had limited luck finding info on the 4350, but I will keep trying. Any pointers would be very much appreciated.

    Have you got it installed, or still working in the installation?

    By default lots of Kexts are install during SL installation including ATI Kext and since you’re running on ATI VC, it will nice you delete those kext to minimize conflicts and promote better boot.

    Just booted into safe mode with the iBoot supported disc and deleted every kext that started with ATI. Then, I tried to let it boot on its own, but it just gets stuck at the gray splash screen with no spinning logo (with or without safe mode).

    Just booted up back again with iBoot Supported in safe mode. What else should I try?

    My last post was slightly incorrect, I was able to boot using iBoot in Regular mode instead of Safe mode, which is definitely an improvement.

    So now I need to get my graphics to work, and then get OS X to boot on it's own What steps should I take next?

    That is confusing.
    1. You delete ATI* in safe, normal mode?
    2. Before/after kexts deleting, it's still no go?

    I decided to delete all ATI kexts and switch to an Nvidia 7200GS, which worked in full 1080P right away.

    However, I can't get dual montiors to work! I've tried copying a few kexts (NvInject and Nvinat I believe).

    Any good resources for getting dual monitors to work on these Nvidia cards?
