iBoot Legacy CD from Tony Mac X86 (Thanks TonyMacX86)
Snow Leopard Retail Install DVD or USB (Buy official version)
Step 1: Put CD in your drive and plug in your USB flash drive
Step 2: Power up your Vaio and wait for CD to boot. (If CD does not boot, check your BIOS settings for boot device order. Make optical disk drive first boot device.)
Step 3: After booting with iBoot Legacy, choose Mac OS X Snow Leopard Install from the menu. (If you are not using USB for OS X install, remove the iBoot Legacy CD and put OS X install DVD than press F5 to refresh iBoot's menu)
Step 4: Use "-v busratio=17 graphicsenabler=no" kernel flags to boot into OS X installation. Simply read kernel logs for error checking, if you come up with an error or stuck at any position use Google for searching solutions.
Step 5: Follow installation steps and use Disk Utility to re-partition your HDD, use GUID partition table. Uncheck stupid stuff from customize menu.
Step 6: After completion of the installation progress reboot your computer and select Mac OS X disk from iBoot menu, use "-v busratio=17" kernel flags to make the OS boot :)
Step 7: Follow steps to complete your OS X installation process.
