    Lightbulb Snow Leopard 10.6.3 + Sandy Bridge = FAIL

    Hi,

    I am looking for a 10.6.8 standalone Installation Disc.

    As Sandy Bridge Processors are only supported from 10.6.8 on, i obviously didn't had any luck with my 10.6.3 Installation Disc.

    The Installation just never gets any further than the Apple Logo you see at the very beginning after switching the Discs (iBoot goes out and Mac Inst. Disc goes in)

    and yes, Bios is set to ACHI

    After switching discs I have tried the options:

    PCIRootUID=1 -x , -x, -s and -v [ENTER]

    but nothing happens. I just see the apple logo and even the processor led on the chassis stops blinking after 2 minutes.

    The apple logo just goes away after a reboot.

    So the only option left was to give up. I had to accept the fact that 10.6.3 is not gonna work with Sandy Bridge Processor.

    So guys is there a way to get/make a COMPLETE 10.6.8 Installation Disc?? No Update Packages or something similar.

    I need a Disc that gives me a complete 10.6.8 installation without any other Steps or Updates.

    My Hardware Configuration:

    Intel Core i7 2600 >> Processor
    Asus P8H67-M PRO >> Motherboard
    4 GB of RAM >> DDR3
    3 Hard Drives >> SATA

    I just left the one HDD connected, i wanted to install Mac OS on.

    On this one HDD i have 2 Partitions:

    One primary Partition with Windows7 on it
    then i have 50 GB of unallocated non-formatted space
    and then i have a logical partition (extended) > 225 GB (NTFS)

    No Video Card as i have integrated HDMI DVI and VGA on my Board and my processor is compatible with it.

    So i have my monitor connected via onboard HDMI

    And i don't have any other cards. No PCI, no nothing. The slots are all empty.

    I hope you guys can help me out.


    Thank you very much for reading =)

    Default Work around.

    I just finsished installing 10.6.3 on my new Core i7 with the sandy bridge, but i had the exact same problem before. I could not get it to fully install with iBoot, but you should try Empire EFI Legacy for the sandy bridge. its the only one that seems to get the job done.

    or this might help point you in the right direction

    Thanks for the answer =)

    I am now searching for the Empire EFI as the authors site (prasys) is down =(

    I know about the reghardware instructions. According to that i need to have a graphics card, which i unfortunately don't have.

    I hope i have a bit of more luck with the empire EFI.

    Wish me luck.. i hope i find it

    Hi,


    I figured out that i really was using an older version of iBoot so i downloaded the newest iBoot with SandyBridge support.

    CD-Boot, Switching discs, booting with PCIRootUID=1 -v

    and at the very end it just prompted "still waiting for root device"

    I checked the jumper and IDE Slots. The Drive i was using was Primary Master and connected to the only IDE Slot on MB

    I disconnected the Primary Slave and the HDD was on the first SATA Port on MB.
    BIOS Settings were perfect.

    Booted again but got the same error again.

    I will try my luck with empire efi and hope that the snow leopard will then roar on my build.
