Files for Gigabyte Mobos

-Extra folder



-Boot CD

Download HackBoot

-Snow Leopard Retail DVD

Snow Leopard Retail

-DSDT Auto-Patcher






Boot the HackBoot CD


Remove the CD, insert Snow Leopard DVD, wait a few seconds and press F5, then select the DVD and press Enter.

After booting the DVD and selecting your language, wait for the "Install Mac OS X" screen. Go to menu "Utilities --> Disk Utility”, select the HD you want to format and click the "Partition" tab. In the "Volume Scheme" combo, choose how many partitions you want. Below, in "Options", choose "GUID", then select "Mac Os Extended (Journaled)", click the apply button and wait.




With this process done, close Disk Utility.

Select the destination HD and go on with the installation.

After the installation, boot using HackBoot again.

The system is running but it needs HackBoot to start, so we have to install the boot loader (Chameleon), the essential kexts and the patched DSDT.


If you have problems with "still waiting for root device" even using AHCI, enter BIOS setup, go to "Integrated Peripherals" and disable the option "SATA Port0-3 Native Mode"



Post installation

1- Copy the Extra folder to your boot partition or use installer

2- Install Chameleon RC5 (in Snow Leopard or EFI partition)

3- Run DSDT Auto-Patcher and copy the generated DSDT to the Extra folder

4- Update the system to 10.6.7

Restart using -v (boot verbose)

Vanilla power management (SpeedStep) and Restart fix Use Chameleon RC5

Added in boot.plist



Realtek RTL81xx Driver


USB 3.0 Driver for Mac OS






Voodoo Ps2






In some motherboards the audio codec may change from one revision to another, so you can use this to apply the correct patch to your revision.

Hi there!

I'm trying to install Mac OS Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my computer (see specs below) using as described in this thread, but all I get is to select boot media and right after that my computer restarts. Is it possible that the problem persists because of that my CD/DVD is an external and is connected via USB? But it is working perfectly on my MAC. If that is the problem, what can I do (except buying a new CD/DVD) to solve it?

Computer configuration:

CPU: Intel Core i3-540 3.06

MB: GA-H55M-S2 rev. 1.3

RAM: 4GB DDR3 1333MHz

Video: Integrated in MB

HDD: SATA II 320GB Seagate Baracuda

I have tried other distributions like iATKOS and some other tools, but I can't get even to the install screen of the OS.

Best regards,

if u gonna intall 10.6.3 retail must use a legacy boot cd. ( like nawcom mod cd or other )

u cpu core i is not supported in 10.6.3 only in 10.6.5, so do after install soft update.

good hack

All of these are enabled, and even after busratio=23 -v it rebooted itself after a little bit of loading. The bad thing is that I cannot see what the reason is, I have no time. The only option that makes it load a bit longer is -x, but again no luck.

Best regards,
