Hello. This is japogiii, and this is my first post here.

This is my guide into getting a PERFECT HACKINTOSH working on an ASUS P5KPL-AM/PS motherboard. (G31+ICH7 chipset)

PERFECT HACKINTOSH means that everything works, including USB, sound, video with QE/CI enabled, sleep, restart, and shutdown.

I have spent almost three days without sleep trying to get this thing to work, and the final result is that it works just as Steve Jobs would have intended.

Here are the important parts which I used for this computer:

Processor: Pentium Dual Core e5200 (2 cores @ 2.5 ghz each)
Motherboard: ASUS P5KPL-AM/PS
Hard Drive: 80 GB Samsung (IDE)
500 GB Seagate (SATA)
DVD Drive: LG Internal Super Multi DVD Rewriter 22x (SATA)
RAM: 2 GB Kingston Value Ram 800mhz DDR2
Graphics Card: Sparkle 9600GT 512mb PCI-E


Install method is through iDeneb v1.4 (10.5.6)


BIOS Settings

Here are the BIOS settings I used for the P5KPL-AM/PS motherboard. BIOS settings are important to get full sleep, shutdown and restart working.

Primary IDE Master: 80 GB Samsung
SATA: 500 GB Seagate
SATA2: LG DVD

ATA/IDE Config: Enhanced
Enhanced Mode Support On: S-ATA

Onboard PCIE GbE LAN: Disabled
(I disabled the onboard LAN because I use a Netgear Wireless USB anyway.)

Plug and Play O/S: Yes


Suspend Mode: S3 Only
ACPI 2.0 Support: Enabled
Restore on AC Power Loss: Power Off

Boot Device Priority
1st: HDD Samsung
2nd: DVD LG

Partitioning the Drive and Dualbooting with XP

Refer to this guide

http://wiki.osx86pro...DualBoot_10.5.2

BUT INSTEAD of Kalyway 10.5.2,
substitute it with iDeneb v1.4.


You know where to find it. ;)

Customize the installation, and check these boxes for this particular setup:

ICHX support (because this P5KPL-AM/PS is a G31/ICH7 chipset)
nvDarwin 512 mb (for the 9600GT videocard)


I didn't check anything for sound, because this is going to be patched later on.

Install. Then it will reboot. Follow the rest of the instructions on
http://wiki.osx86pro...DualBoot_10.5.2
for bootloading.

If you did everything correctly, boot into the OS X partition and you should see the welcome video. (Nice, eh. QE/CI enabled already) but no sound.

Get the sound drivers here, and install:
http://www.kexts.com...=...ext=5&kid=7

Last, go to system preferences -> energy saver.
Under options, check "Allow power button to sleep the computer."
Also check "Restart automatically after a power failure."


And there you go. A fully working, 10.5.6 OS X Leopard on your HACKINTOSH.

Enjoy. :)

Please comment if you encounter any problems, or if this guide has helped you in any way.

japogiii.

that's awesome! i posted the day before about exact the same board and if it would be good for osx. seems like i don't have to worry about that any longer (but i will stick with the onboard gfx chip and get no stand alone gfx card i think, onboard gfx is Intel GMA 3100 shared)

and...this will also work with a sataII-hdd instead of ide-hdd, right?

thanks for the great guide!

Great to see every thing works with the Asus P5KPL-AM board. I have the Asus p5ql se mobo. Everything worked fine, with iDeneb v1.4(10.5.6) except audio.
OSX can work good with Asus mobo

here a simailar model:

Japogiii... I installed following your tut, installed the KEXT, but still no audio... any ideas?
BTW: The recomended KEXT for audio it's for ALC662 and P5KPL-AM has VT1708B CODEC/chipset

Well, this is my first post at this great community, sorry for my bad english, but I can rest assured that you will understand.

For those who have a hard times on enabling the Asus P5KPL-AM Azalia onboard soundcard to be fully working with Hackintosh 10.5.6, grab this driver (only 70kb):
http://rapidshare.co...io.pkg.zip.html

BTW, here are the specs which I use for Hackintosh (now all hardware is fully working like a charm):
- Intel Dual-Core E5200 (2.5 Ghz)
- Kingston ValueDDR 2GB RAM 667Mhz run at Single-Channel mode
- ASUS P5KPL-AM
(Onboard VGA Intel GMA3100 is DISABLED, never past the boot screen when this thing is enabled, I could get to past the bootscreen and run the installation after adding the external PCI-e VGA card)
- WD 160GB SATA-II
- nVidia GeForce 7300GT 256MB
(Using NVdarwin 256MB driver from installer, I don`t know it is fully working with QE/CI or not, but I have tested it supports all resolution and have no problem playing DVD movie, the Leopard animation and effects plays very smoothly too).
- ASUS E-616A2 IDE DVD-ROM

I hope every users of Asus P5KPL-AM will find this post useful.

I also want to say big thanks to japoogii for this comprehensive guide, your guide is really helped me a lot when I struggling installing the iDeneb 10.5.6 over the Asus P5KPL-AM, without this I maybe will never completed the installations.

*edit: Sorry, I forgot to mention, I have dual-booting this machine with Win XP SP3. Everything works perfectly now.... :hysterical:

Thank you for this solution. It worked for sound output (but neither sound input or front panel are working).
Also still struggling with the LAN: It recognizes the device, but it doesn't get any IP
Suggestions?

For the Nvidia 9400GT users: I used IDeneb 1.4 and NVInject, and finnally solved the black screen problem.

P.S. I Love this Hackintosh thing - it's already my second

I`m glad that I could give something back useful for this community ;)

As for Ethernet problems, yep the Hackinstosh already recognized it with the driver downloaded from the link above, but I haven`t tested it yet, because I don`t have any DSL modem. I used the ZTE 3G/HSDPA USB Modem and it works perfectly. Maybe tomorrow I will bring my Hackintosh PC to my brother home, he used to connect to internet with ADSL connections. I will post the results soon.

This looks great!! I purchased these parts today before I knew they were good for a hackintosh. I already have a great case with brushed aluminum highlights sitting around and after reading this it means it was all meant to be ( A Hackintosh)...

Will begin my work in the lab tonight to bring this together........mwhahahah!!!

I'll report back with success and failures....(not that it looks there are many)....

hola, ive been using this mobo for 3 months, and it works OOB with the IPC.
About the LAN on board, you can use de OSX86 Tools to download the correct driver. Actually, I use the on board LAn and a Realtek pci too.

bye

ciao vorei chiederti che driver dovrei selezionare se mettessi al posto di una nvidia 9600gt una nvidia 9400gt??

grazie


ciao, debi mettere Nviject dal iDeneb 1.4

Well....

I had to re-install 3 times...but that was my own fault I think.

So far so good. I was going to use my Ralink RT2500 USB for wireless to begin with, but it managed to cause a panic when inserted into the rear USB ports, so I plugged in my D-Link DWA-547 A/B/G/N card....Worked out of the box as Airport card, awesome. I also connected the lan to my ethernet cable, got an I.P instantly and was off and running it too worked out of the box.

Only problem so far is shutdown. Fans keep going until I press the power button. Sleep doesnt resume!!.....

I am on Vanilla kernel, I selected no kernel from the boxes and I only selected NVinject for the 9500GT (The 512mb kext on it's own left me with 1280x800 res and nothing else but blue screens ( I re-installed and just checked NVinject, by default it selects all memory sizes) along with Networking (RT2500 USB) and iDeneb apps.

Everything is working quite well other than those few hickups...

My setup is nearly identical to the first post. I'm using an 80GB Samsung as well for now (IDE) as I will shovel a 500GB drive in here soon (sata) and go from there using a time machine backup of this setup next time around

I had trouble with the resolution initially. My LCD is only 17" (Viewsonic/Black) and it's max res is 1440x900 If I selected the full resolution the screen would go blue and stay there!! I had to reset the machine and it would go 1280x800 on reboot. After about 4 goes of selecting 1440x900 it stuck. I rebooted and it displayed properly!!! Bizarre.

As I mentioned I'm running a 9500GT 512mb card. With the NVdarwin kexts I got the boot screen and then the display went to "no signal".......blank. The hard drive continued to whirl and then nothing......so I tried -x and still nothing. Tried booting 800x600 and nothing happened either (re-install)

Anyway, it works well for now. I would like sleep to work, and proper shutdown. If anyone can explain my USB issue with the Ralink Wireless dongle I'd appreciate it, I'm hoping this doesn't happen to other devices I need to use in the future (kernel panic, must check the logs)

I'm using a logitech wireless keyboard and G5 mouse and both work on USB fine......no issues with those devices.

EDIT:...Full Shutdown now works. No fans...

*Have OC'ed my E5200 to 3.01Ghz, stable and fast.....V-Happy with this Hack rig.
