[SOLVED] Snow Leopard 10.6 problem during installation
Hi. I currently use Gigabyte P35 DS3L rev 2.0 mother board , intel core 2 duo E6750 2.66ghz, 1GB X2 ram, and xfx geforce 8800gt.
I have taken out all the usb and hard drives i don't need. Set my motherbaord correctly too.
The problem is that when the installation bar reaches half, it always says "the installer could not copy the necessary support files."
I'm installing 10.6 retail version. I tried two different retail versions since i'm using unknown sources to get them. So far both of them shows the same error. (using transmac to burn them)
I tried using different bootloaders too. Chameleon and iboot. Samething over and over though..
I really wish i can get this to work so help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Maybe you are using ripped discs, how big is your image? You might need to uncheck something like printer or language. The stock SL image is a DL DVD, if you have a smaller one it's most likely ripped.
Thanks for the reply. Problem solved. This was a very weird problem. The thing is that.. i had to continue the installation +rewrite over and over upon every failures to complete it. My image was the right size burned on a Dual Layer. I think some people might have this problem too and all i can say is just keep installing one after another but don't delete the previous installation failures. I'm not sure what is causing this because it kept on failing with hdd install too. Right now though, My 10.6.8 snow leopard is very stable. I've seen the same problem somewhere too..Keep try using different install method. Hope this helps for people who just couldn't pass the install process no matter what you've tried.
Omg it finally worked!!!!!!!
I registered just to say this:
I have been wrestling for days with trying to install Snow Leopard. I finally thought I had it using a genuine retail DVD but still, just an endless loop of "install failed" errors. Your suggestion to install again and again ON TOP OF EACH OTHER with different settings until it worked, was THE key. First I tried installing on top with the same settings, and it failed again. But on the third install I changed the settings to un-tick all the custom options, and it went through without any problems at all! Now at last I'm downloading the combo update from the hackintosh itself, and look forward to finally having a usable dedicated x86 Mac instead of just my little Macbook Pro.
So thanks again, without this one little tip I'd probably have given up and gone back to Windows 7!
