At least they should let us know the issue......right? Posted Image

Before voting no... Posted Image ...my issue resides in my bios i think. I'm using iDeneb and ##### on a P5Q (E3790? <-what it says on the instruction manual...).

I've tried "P5Q Asus 2208 by smith@@", but OS X either freezes at the apple boot screen with the loading wheel stopped, or before getting to the loading wheel, I get a dialog telling me to restart.

Any help?

You can't boot a distro DVD with a boot CD!
Boot CDs are for booting the retail OS X install DVD. ideneb already has a bootloader on it.

Go back to the latest available unmodified ASUS BIOS and use a retail DVD plus one of these boot CDs:

A lot of people did, but you didn't bother to read the thread.

Hi,

I got the Asus P5QL Pro.
I want setup SnowLeopard (any Version > 10.6.3).

I got big issues to setup my bios. I downloaded

P5QL ASUS PRO1004_by smith@@.ROM.zip

before I had the one from Jazzy

Now I cant boot the system (my hack 10.6.1)
in verbose mode it tells me

vmnet: invalidating peer info for hub 0 port 2
vmnet: VnetUserIfFree: freeing UserIf at 0x72af300.
vmnet: netif-vmnet0: adding protocol 2.





I am not sure if the bios is setup right . Do I have to manually change settings in the bios after flashing the bios?
WHAT CAN I DO ?

Thanks
Mogio

I know guys this is a very old thread but I still own a vanilla version of Asus P5Q with E7600 cpu and nvidia 460GTX... Is there a modded bios version 2009 with slic 2.1 and relevant DSDT to configure a mavericks installation? I found some modded bios files around but not sure how to use them.. also the links given are no longer available...

 

Please help me out.

BR,

f
