I want to start of by acknowledging that I didn't read the directions completely before installing, which is my fault, although it may have something to do with the fact that I was installing Snow Leopard right after donating blood.

I am installing Snow Leopard on a brand-new system, with a Sandy Bridge CPU and a gigabyte z68-xp-ud3 motherboard. I installed the "UpdateHelper" patch before updating to 10.6.8, but I didn't start MultiBeast until the update was already running, and then I rebooted at the end of the update.

Is this likely to screw things up? Should I wipe the disk and start over with a clean install?

What does MultiBeast do while the 10.6.8 installer is running? Why does rebooting cause problems?
