Snow Leopard is an old OS and drivers or kexts are old as well some modern hardware may not work correctly while some won't work at all. USB 3 does not work with this installer. So install it with that knowledge.


Thank you for choosing the AMD-OSX SnowLeopardAMD Image for use with Windows. In this short tutorial I will show you how to perform the install steps to get the SnowLeopardAMD Installed and the PostInstall steps. You might want to print this out or make some notes.

To begin use Transmac to restore the SnowLeopardAMD.dmg file to a USB drive, the USB drive needs to be at least 8GBs in size. This tutorial by Shaneee covers using Transmac to restore dmg images to USB: http://forum.amd-osx.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1213 Once you have the image restored you want to boot off the USB drive. You want to select Boot macOS from SnowLeopardAMD to begin. This does not support USB 3, as GenericUSBXHCI.kext will not load in the prelinked kernel.

Choose your SnowLeopardAMD installation USB from the Boot Menu.


Image

Choose SnowLeopardAMD from the list of choices and press enter. It will hang on an error, ParseTagDate, just hit enter to continue loading the installer.

Image

Choose your language and click Continue.


Image


Once the installer loads, click on the Utilities Menu and choose Disk Utility.


Image


Choose your drive on the left pane, and on the right create your Snow Leopard partition. Name it macOS.


Image


Click Continue to carry on with the installation.


Image

Choose your macOS drive and click Install, to start the installation of Snow Leopard.


Image

The installation will begin. Once it's completed, restart to begin the PostInstall process.





Image

Choose your SnowLeopardAMD installer USB from the Boot Menu.


Image

Once Chameleon loads, choose SnowLeopardAMD to enter the installer. If you get the ParseTagDate error, just hit enter to continue.


Image


Click on the Utilities menu and the select Terminal from the list.


Image

Once Terminal loads, enter the following command and press enter.
Code: Select all
cd /Volumes/SnowLeopardAMD/PostInstall
Image


Next enter the following command and press enter.
Code: Select all
sh post.sh
This will run the PostInstall script. It will copy the Kernel, required Kexts and an example Extra folder to the macOS hard drive.

Installation is done. Now boot off the USB one more time to enter the Desktop.

Image

Once Chameleon loads, choose macOS from the list and press enter.


Image

Once the intro movie quits, choose your Country and click Continue.

Image

Choose your Keyboard and click Continue.


Image

Click Continue on the Transfer from another mac screen.

Click Continue on signing into iCloud. Then create your account for your install and carry on to the Desktop.

Once at the desktop, open the SnowLeopardAMD USB and double click on the PostInstall folder. Double click on the Chameleon installer to install Chameleon to your hard drive. This allows you to boot without using the USB.





Image


Click on the Apple Menu and choose Software Update. The Software Updater will load and show you what updates are available. Click Install to install the updates.

Once the updater finishes, it will restart your PC. Boot off the Installation USB and perform the PostInstall procedures to put the kernel back and rebuild the prelinked kernel. Then boot back to Desktop and run Software Update again to check for more updates. Keep repeating these steps until all updates are installed.

Hello Norton287,
very nice explained Install, but there is a problem about the downloadfile and GoogleDrive. Maybe you don't know it, but there is a limit by downloading Files from Googledrive. I never ever can download your .dmg File, because the dowenload will be broken by 2 oder3 GB. Why 15 GB and why 1 File and why GoogleDrive?
Regards from Germany, Olaf Neumann
