Snow Leopard (Retail) hangs during install

Question

I used NAWCOM BootCD with boot: mach_kernel to get my retail Snow Leopard disc to begin its thing. It got as far as "Refusing new kext com.apple.lokit.IOUSBFamily, v3.9.6: already have loaded v6.6.6.". Then it hung at

"com_lnx2mac_RealtekRTL81xx: Ethernet addres 00:1f:c6:04:74:b0". I've attached a photo of what was on the screen. Did I forget something?

 

HP Pavilion A6400f

Intel E2200 CPU

8 GB RAM

ASUS IPIBL-LB mobo

Update...I removed the TPLink wireless card think it may be the cause. Nope. After four hours it was still hanging at the same point as before.

The RTL8111 based network cards sometimes get wrongly detected. The most reliable one for me was RehabMans branch which can be found here https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Realtek-Network ... scroll down the page a little ways and you will see the modern and the older versions. Choose appropriately for the age of your NIC. Although having said that yours does seem to have been detected correctly further up the screen.

 

If the new driver does not get it to play, check in your BIOS for disks/network/graphics and others all to be legacy boot and you will most likely need CSM Always too ... Snow Leopard is an old cat now

The reason I chose that old cat is because it came around the same tyme as my CPU. mobo, etc. I figured they'd play together nicely. This is a fresh install to a barren hard drive. Win7 is installed on another HDD completely.

Snow Leopard is a great starting point. It's certainly the easiest to install and you will learn the basics of creating a hackintosh with much less pain ;)

Right. I got Snow Leopard installed onto my HP Pavilion A6400f (http://support.hp.co...ument/c01390590) and used finder(?) to upgrade to the latest version. When the install got to the end it asked to reboot, which I did. After 40 minutes of the screen sitting at the purple haze background I did a hard reboot. Nothing.

The screen displays these lines:

 

boot0: GPT

boot0: test

boot0: test

boot0: GPT

boot0: test

boot0: test

boot0: error

 

I can return to the unit boot screen using the Windows salute (3 fingers, one each on CTRL, ALT, & DEL).

 

When I get the unit to start, I get the Apple WSOD - white screen of death - which just shows the Apple logo. I'm loading from a WD Blue Mainstream 500GB 7200RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - WDBH2D5000ENCNRSN

 

Did I fum-dum something?
