    Default Trouble Installing Mac OS X Snow Leopard on Desktop

    Hey all!

    This is my first post here so if I am missing information or posting in the wrong section please let me know. Anywho, I guess it would be helpful to first list my desktop specs. They are as follows:

    Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
    Corsair Builder Series CX600 600 watt 80 Plus Certified Power Supply Compatible with Intel and AMD Platforms ATX 700 CMPSU-600CXV2
    Asus Black 12X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-Ray Drive (BC-12B1ST)
    Western Digital 160 GB Caviar Blue SATA 7200 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive WD1600AAJS
    Corsair Vengeance 16 GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600MHz PC3 240 Pin DIMM Memory CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10
    EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Superclocked 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card - Lifetime Warranty 01G-P3-1563-AR
    Intel Core i5 3550 Processor 3.3 4 BX80637I53550
    Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA 1155 AMD CrossFireX/NVIDIA SLI W/HDMI, DVI Dual UEFI BIOS ATX Motherboard GA-Z77X-D3H

    I have downloaded and burned iBoot to a dual layer DVD. I also have a Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD.
    I have unplugged my external graphics card and am allowing my mother boards internal graphic card to be used during mac installation.
    I have taken one of the two 8 GB ram sticks out in order to negate any problems that might be caused by having two sticks in.
    I have set the Bios to AHCI mode and the boot priority is set to CD-ROM.
    My drive is formatted to FAT32 (also attempted these steps when formatted to exFat).

    So now onto the problem itself. I insert the iBoot disc and restart my computer. There seem to be no issues. Here is the result.

    Then I eject the iBoot disc and insert the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Retail DVD and I make it to this screen.

    When I select the Mac OS X install option, type -x, or type PCIRootUID=1 I always get stuck at a white screen with the mac logo.

    Any suggestions as to whether my computer may not be compatible or steps that I am missing or should try would be greatly appreciated. I poked around the forum for a few hours in an attempt to not be redundant. Tried a lot of things but to no avail. Your help and responses are valued.

    From a helpful forum user in another post it seems that I am missing that Ivy Bridge Z77 board/CPU support in Snow Leopard doesn't exist.
