First, thank you for all your guides, they are awesome and have so much information, i have learn't alot!

Secondly, i have an issue. Using an Asus p5q se2, i followed your instructions for iDeneb installation, i flash the Bios using Smith@@ bios for my motherboard and then installed the OS. Installation completes with no issues and goes smoothly. The only problem is now that im trying to boot it up its not loading. When i try using "-v" to see the issue it says:
Failed to load extension com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPCI.

Im wondering if you have had any experience with this and know how to fix it as googling and checking other posts with the problem hasn't given me much information to get it working.

Thank you in advance for any information and help you can give me :(

I followed this tutorial, installed iDeneb and flashed a modded bios and it doesn't work.

I can install iDeneb, I do it and when it's finished the computer reboots and ... doesn't boot Mac OS X.

I have the same thing than when I have only got the CD ... I tried booting with this command :
"rd=disk0s5 -v" and it doesn't work either ... Mac OS X boots (I see white text on black) and then instead of booting it goes to the installation menu.

When I dont put the CD in the computer, it shows me something like this :

CD Boot priority ..
boot0 : error
(I don't remember exactly)

And I can't boot to 7 anymore ... It doesn't ask me to choose any OS ...

I don't know what to do anymore, please help :)

PS : Sorry for my poor english

Edit : I forgot : I've got a P5Q, I don't know exactly what model but I had to choose 2102 bios for it to work with the Acer Tool.

Hi there

Im a newbi in this fora and to Hackintosh, but in the advance level when it comes to software and installing on both PC and Mac.

My prime computer is a PC !

I have tryed ALL the "how to" and i got 13 diffrent images burned and tryed em all, no of them works !!! With some i can install, but after complet installation and reboot it just stalles at the OS load logo ( grey apple screen, and no clok turning ). :) :tomato:

All the -v and so on is tryed ! No response

Even tryed the NEW images for Snow Leopard and no luck there eighter !

Im on the edge of giving up, so any one that can make me a SIMPLE how to do for this would be MUCH appriciated, or anyone that can tell me that NOTHINGS works on this motherboard by experience

Allsaw trired the ACHI for XP, and cant get that running eighter. I can turn it on in BIOS but XP wont respond to it or boot on other then IDE set in BIOS !

I got a......

A. Motherboard: ASUS P5QL / EPU ( build on 20/09/2009
B. BIOS: Version 4.08 ( latest )
C. CHIPSET: Intel P43 / ICH 10
