> Snow Leopard Installation On Intel D946gzab, Issues installing on the Intel 946GZ based motherboard

I have the following System:

Intel D946GZAB Motherboard (Intel 946PLGZ Chipset Rev. C1, ICH7R controller, 946GZ Onboard Video Rev. 2 384 mb memory)
2 GB DDR2 Memory (PC5200)
Intel BIOS AB94610J.86A.2007.0923.1956 dtd 09/23/2007
Intel Core2 Duo E6300 CPU
LG DVD Reader/Writer (PATA)
Seagate 1TB Hard Drive (SATA)(Empty)
Hitachi 1TB Hard Drive (SATA) (Time Machine Backup Drive
Maxtor 500 GB Hard drive (Windows 7)
Latest Nawcom Boot Cd.

I have been able to boot the Nawcom CD, Swap it for the Retail Install DVD, and pass the following parameters to the kernel at the boot: prompt

mach_kernel -v -F CPU=1 GraphicsEnabler=N Graphics Mode=1280x1024x32@60 DropSSDT=Y

along with dropping the various directive on successive reboots.

Each time I reboot and enter the directives, It will start the boot process, then hang at the ACPI status (S0 S1 S3 S5) S3

Any other ideas on what to try?
