Hello Ladies and Gentleman.

I am having a problem getting Mac OS X Snow Leopard loaded on my custom built computer (Specs will be posted at the bottom of the message) using a retail OS X disc. I am using the Empire EFI for AMD processors disc and when I try to boot the setup DVD the system reboots.

I have pressed tab to disable the graphical boot menu on Empire EFI and the reboot occurs on the Loading Darwin x86 line and I was wondering what could be causing the constant reboots.

I have tried the system with my old iPC Leopard distro and that reboots at exactly the same place, the Empire EFI, iPC Leopard and OS X Snow Leopard retail discs all work because I have tried them in VirtualBox and VMware on the exact same system (So the AMD kernel works properly), additionally I successfully managed to Hackintosh my Acer laptop using the iPC Leopard distro.

If anyone has any tips, I would appreciate it very much. PS On the load options I have tried -v, -f, -x, -s, cpus=1, maxmem=1024 and every combination possible.
