    Default Snow Leopard On Asus P6X58D?

    Hey Guys,
    I need some help here. I have been trying to install Snow Leopard on my system but it just wont go. I have tried the installation with iboot and my retail disc of SL 10.6.3 and I get the apple logo with the no smoking sign above it and the machine freezes. In BIOS I have set my Drives to ahci and also enabled acpi thinking that the raid 0 is messing stuff up but nothing helps still freezes. I have also taken out all my cards and ram except for 2GB and unplugged all usb devices and the machine still freezes. I have tried unplugging all my drives and using a spare drive just try to see if I could get it to install. I had my dvd drive in sata port 1 and my hard drive in port 2 and nothing just a black screen. I have also tried Empire EFI Ver.1.085 with no go. I followed this guide at Snow Leopard Install for Asus P6X58D Premium - InsanelyMac Forum on how to install SL with my type of motherboard and all i get is a black screen. I have also tried typing in different commands like -v -x, busratio=20 but nothing helps. My machine just freezes up and I can't get to the installation screen at all. I have tried many different distros as well and they all freeze up or I get a black screen and I have to power down the machine. Is there a custom boot disk I can use to get mac installed on my system? It would nice if I could install mac on raid on different partition then my windows one and dual boot both OS. Thanks for any help...

    My system specs are:

    Motherboard: Asus P6X58D Premium
    CPU: Intel Core i7 980x Extreme 3.33Ghz
    Ram: 12Gb Corsair 1600
    Hard Drive:Raid 0 Setup Seagate 1.5Tb
    Video: Nvidia GTX 470
    Cooler: 120mm Liquid cooler Liquid Cooling
    Power Supply: 1000w Corsair

    try typing in PCIRootUID=1 with the iboot-disk from tonymacx86 Forum • Login, try a smaller hard drive less than 1tb.
    i got mine to the instal screen but i got a message "mac os x cant be installed on this machine" maybe you will get further.
