Note: 만약 BIOS 에서 Hyper Threading 과 additional cores 를 disableed 설정해두었다면 반드시 enable시켜줄 필요성이 있다. DSDT.aml 파일은 이미 4 cores + HT를 패치해 두었기 때문이다.
flash drive에 부팅이미지를 복원해주기 위해 첫번째로, flash drive를 포맷해준다. Disk Utility 를 열고 다음 그림처럼 GUID partition scheme 과 HFS+ file system (기본적이고 일반적인 포맷)파티션한다. 파티션 라벨(차후 타이핑하기 좋은 잛은 영문, 여기서는 Installer). :

flash drive를 포맷한 후 Snow Leopard DVD 이미지를 flash drive로 복원(restore)할 것이다.
Snow Leopard DVD 넣고 Disk Utility를 실행한다. 리스트로부터 Mac OS X Install DVD 를 선택하고 Restore tab을 클릭한다. 그리고 "Mac OS X Install DVD" 를 source text box 로 드래그하여주고 포맷돈 flash drive volume (그림에서 Installer) 을 destination text box로 드래그한다. "Erase Destination" 상관없다. 걍 Restore 클릭한다.

이 과정은 약 20분간 걸릴것이나 어떤 MacBook 에서는 한시간 걸린 사례도 있다.
flash drive 를 이용한 부팅
이제 Snow Leopard DVD 복원된 flash drive를 가지게 되었다. 다음 단계는 부팅가능하게 해주는 단계이다. 이제 "2_Boot Prep."를 실행한다. 이 script 는 Chameleon 2 RC3 를 flash drive에 설치할 것이고, 기본적으로 필요한 kexts를 포함한 kext cache 를 생성하고, com.apple.Boot.plist, smbios.plist, 와 DSDT.aml 파일들을 flash drive의 적절한 위치에 설치할 것이다. 다음 그림 참조
위 단계가 끝나면 이제 Snow Leopard 설치하기 위한 부팅 준비가 끝난 것이다.
Mac 에서 flash drive를 제거하기전에 P6T SE Essential 폴더를 flsh drive에 복사해 둔다.
Note: 만약 ATI Radeon HD4xxx 나 HD5xxx 그래픽 카드를 가지고 있다면 최신 부트로더를 설치해야 할 필요성이 있으므로 그래픽 카드 설정은 OS X 설치후에 진행하기로 한다.
I strongly encourage you to set your OS X drive as the first in the boot list in your BIOS. It makes things a lot easier.
If you've already installed OS X on any machine you'll be familiar with the setup. Apple makes it easy anyway.
Ideally you should completely power down your computer. This guide assumes that you're installing to a SATA hard drive and that you've configured it as either AHCI or RAID in your BIOS (yes, you can use RAID but not a drive or drives in an array). Turn your computer on and press the F8 key until you get a message about BBS popup. This will let you select your boot device. You want to choose the thumb drive that you prepared in the earlier steps. You should now see the Chameleon boot loader screen. Select your thumb drive (here it's Installer) and type -v and press enter. Now you'll see a wall of text and if something goes wrong it can help us pinpoint the problem. If everything goes smoothly you'll see the first of several installation screens for OS X. Make sure that you use Disk Utility to format your destination HD as HFS+ and use the GUID partition scheme! Select any languages you may want, printer drivers, etc and install. It should take about 30 minutes.
The Fun Part
So you should have OS X installed now. You're not quite finished though. When you reach the screen that asks you to reboot, do so. However you will need to make sure that you boot from your flash drive again. The retail installation does not have the necessary kexts or proper boot loader to allow you to boot straight into OS X. Using the F8 trick, boot to your flash drive but this time select your Snow Leopard installation. I recommend using the -v flag again in case there is an error or kernel panic. Knowing this information will help us troubleshoot if something goes wrong. The initial boot may take a bit longer than you'll normally see. Within a few minutes (it shouldn't take more than 5) you'll be welcomed with the introductory video. If everything worked correctly you'll also get sound! Continue setting up your user account and filling in the necessary information.
Once you have reached the desktop you'll want to copy over the P6T SE Essentials folder to the desktop.
Right now you have a choice to make regarding how your computer boots from now on. They are:
Boot from system partition
Boot from EFI partition
Boot from external medium (i.e. USB, CF, SD, etc)
System Partition If you would like to install the Chameleon RC3 boot loader to the system partition (the main one that you see active when running your computer), open the Essentials folder and run "3_Loader." Follow the on screen prompts, making sure to type "N" when asked if you want to install to the EFI Partition.
EFI Partition If you would like to install the Chameleon RC3 boot loader to the EFI partition (something used on real macs, but not hackintoshes), open the Essentials folder and run "3_Loader." Follow the on screen prompts, making sure to type "Y" when asked if you want to install to the EFI Partition.
Boot from external medium (i.e. USB, CF, SD, etc) This is the method I prefer because of the way my system is setup. Since I have a RAID0 array that I run Windows from, I can't conveniently dual boot operating systems if my boot loader is run from a hard drive. I simply can't run it on my array, and I get errors trying to do so from the OS X hard drive. Since I had a spare CF card lying around I decided to install the boot loader to that. Doing so allowed me to set Windows as my default OS and still easily boot to OS X when I need to.
Step 1) Format your boot medium GUID Partition Scheme. Format it as HFS+. Step 2) Run "External Medium Booter" from the P6T SE Essentials folder.
Step 3) Configure your BIOS to boot this medium first. The P6T SE BIOS can boot from pretty much any external medium.
After you've prepared your system to boot, you're done! Enjoy OS X.
10.6.2 Update Guide
Updating to 10.6.2 is very easy and can be done in a few short steps. Please follow them carefully. Failure to do so may require you to reinstall everything.
1) Download the 10.6.2 Update Package. 2) There are a few included files you need to modify before applying the update. They are: com.apple.Boot.plist and smbios.plist. Instructions on what to modify are in the Boot.plist.rtf and smbios.plist.rtf files (respectively).
To find your UUID for the boot.plist file and build your mkext cache, use Kext Utility (kills two birds with one stone!). Drag the Extensions folder and drop it on the Kext Utility app:

Near the top you'll see the information you need to copy and paste into your boot.plist file:
NOW ASSUMING YOU'VE DONE ALL OF THAT CORRECTLY...
Click the Apple menu in the upper left hand corner and choose Software Update...
Show Details when it tells you updates are available.
Uncheck everything but the 10.6.2 update.
When it's ready to install it will inform you that you need to restart the computer. DO NOT RESTART YET
Replace your existing boot files with the ones from the 10.6.2 Update Package. This is what your new boot device/drive should have:
Once you've replaced the original files with these new ones, you can restart and let the 10.6.2 Update finish. Your computer should reboot running 10.6.2
