    Default Wrong version of hackintosh maybe? Not sure?

    I've been trying to install a version of hackintosh called iATKOS S3 for a few days now and having a really hard time getting it installed. I've used ModCD and without ModCD and having no luck. I've been trying Leopard mainly because I don't have any duel layer DVD's laying around where I can get a copy of Mountain Lion. I've had Snow Leopard installed on my pc a couple years ago but was having major issues with my wireless card not installing so I ended up re-installing windows back. I've never really had the opportunity to experience Mac OS X since I've always been an AMD fan. My machine is kind of old but from what I read online with hardware specs and such it seems like my system shouldn't have any issues installing Mac OS X. Maybe you guys can help me out.

    Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H
    AMD 690G - Chipset
    AMD Athlon 64 X2, 3.0 Mhz
    G.Skill 4 GB Ram
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 440
    Realtek ALC889A - Audio
    Realtek RTL8169/8110 - LAN

    I ran rd(0,0)/Extra/modbin_kernel or whatever the command was on the ModCD bootloader but during the installation it told me there was an error around 90% or something. It never would finish the installation. If I installed it without the ModCD it would install everything and after it would go to a really dark gray looking screen with the progress thing and after a little while the progress thing would just lock up. It would never get past that. When I try to reboot I'd get a boot error after my bios posted. It messed up my MBR every time I tried. I've tried this installation a lot of times with no luck. I've been trying to duel boot with windows 7. Every time it fails I have to put in my windows dvd and fix my MBR to even get my pc back in working order. Could use some help if someone could give me some suggestions.

    I don't mind downloading a different version of hackintosh I know there is a lot of different versions and I really didn't know which one to pick before I tried all this. If I like mac os x I'm planning on building an i5 system that is fully compatible with a retail copy. So I may end up buying if I like it.
