By design, SL 10.6.X is way too old to run with anything newer than Sandy Bridge cpus.

AFAIK Intel HD3000 drivers were introduced with Lion 10.7, SL is not even aware of it. :(

IIRC, even Sandy Bridge needed a patched kernel. That in mind, you may try Nawcom´s Mod CD or USB and a retail SL DVD.

Nawcoms Mod has an option to install a patched kernel for unsupported cpus.

The newer your hardware, the less likely SL will work. SL Server in VMWare may be a solution if you need 10.6 on recent hardware.

For a hassle free install of SL choose any old Core2Duo or even DualCore, Intel 945GM chipset or better and a supported GPU.

A Lenovo T60 (intel iGPU only) or something similar will be a perfect match for example.
