Installing Snow Leopard for OSX86

This is a very quick guide which I made up. Again its not prefect , I’ve made this to teach on how to restore your MacOS X Snow Leopard disk which you have bought it for $29 to a USB Stick in order for you to run Snow Leopard Retail installer and install it on your drive.
Before we begin , do make sure you have (the following stuff) :-

  • Snow Leopard 10A432 DVD aka “$29 DVD” (By the way its a full DVD and its not an upgrade DVD)
  • A working MacOS X installation (Tiger or Leopard) (even Panther would do if you’re still using PPC that is)
  • 8GB USB Stick (if you have a hotswap , another hard disk , external hard disk – by all means use them) *If you don’t have a 8GB or larger USB stick , there is alternative method) (even iPod would do)
  • -or – 128MB USB Stick (if you plan to use Retail DVD to boot) (Not recommended) -or – a blank cd
  • Common sense (yes you’ll be needing them)
  • ADDED Advantage – Have installed OSX Leopard Retail discs via boot-132
  • IRC Client for you to grab some of the required files
  • Basic knowledge of how to patch DSDT manually , troubleshooting and stuff
  • USB Keyboard/Bluetooth (It works with PS2 keyboard as well – Tested)
