First, try to boot with -x flag. If that didn't work try another distro, I'd suggest Leo4All v4.1. That's the only distro that ever installed on my 790GX.

Leo4All 4.1 AMD only kernel? I used other distros to install on my rig and it would just panic right away, but with that was smooth.

you need kext

you should try to find SB700 chipset kext. you can find in forum. I wrote the kext link. you will have information about chipset. but I can say you you should have proper graphic card because I couldnt run the ATI HD3200 on board GFX.

I am writing half of URL ,you can find the domain I hope


get the kext and try to add your sb 750 pci id. you should look via google. have a nice day. I hope you can do. but I think, editing the SB700 will work for you.
