My setup
2.66GHz P4 506 w/ SSE3, Intel D101GGC motherboard w/ ATI x200 chipset, 512MB of RAM with 2 IDE HDs on IDE channel 0 with OS X and XP installed on master drive (i have not tried serial ata) On IDE channel 1 I have a Sony DVD+-R/RW and high speed CD burner (I think its a panasonic, I'll check later), genaric NEC chipset firewire PCI card, genaric Ali chipset PCI USB 2.0 card, Orange Micro USB to bluetooth adapter.

What works
USB 2.0, onboard ethernet, IDE, both the genaric PCI USB 2.0 and Firewire card work, genaric USB bluetooth

What doesn't work
Onboard sound, onboard video card does not support QE or CI, OpenGL is very slow, cannot play games

What I have not tested
Serial ATA

Burning the disk
All iso files for osx must be burned in nero or other windows burning program and will not work properly if burned in OS X using Toast. 10.4.3 install disk showed a kernel panic when burned in Toast but not with Nero. 10.4.4/10.4.5 would install and then show an error saying "Please try installing again" at the end when burned with Toast, but worked like a charm when burned in Nero 6. Also I burned the images onto a DVD+RW at 2.4x This had worked for others and I found that it made the disks work without any problems.

USB
The first problem I ran into was after booting up from the 10.4.4/10.4.5 ISO was it would not boot up with anything PS2 installed. So I tried USB only but then the mouse and keyboard would not work.
After some messing around I just had to disable legacy USB in the BIOS. This got me to through the install screens and my keyboard and mouse worked without any problems.

ATA drivers, "waiting for root device" this is a MUST
Using the instructions here, ATI ATA drivers, you will need to install these drivers before you restart the computer after the original install or you may get a "waiting for root device" error. It also will speed up your disk access and write times quite a bit.

Repair Permissions
If you change any system files in the Extensions folder you MUST repair the permissions before you reboot. I found it better to manually do this in terminal using the following commands:

su

chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/

If I use disk utility to repair permissions it sometimes would break the onboard ethernet. Using terminal is the only way to make sure this gets done right.

Sound
I used a genaric USB sound card that I found on ebay for $9 after shipping. It did not work with the 10.4.5 AppleUSBAudio.kext but if you replace it with the one from 10.4.3 it should work like a charm.

Video
Koverg patch does not work, you will need a PCIe graphics card at this point to get QE and CI to work.

I just got this graphics card in the mail. With unmodified ati9700 kexts it works right out of the box with CI and QE. Using the Callisto frame buffer, here, most of the screen artifacts are gone, but I still have mouse issues. But I can play SimCity 4 so im happy now. :poster_oops:

Information on the video card:
MSI RX300HM-TD128ELF Radeon X300SE HyperMemory 256MB Hyper Memory(128M VRAM on board) GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card, From Newegg.com for 30.99 after shipping.

XBench Results

This is with the new graphics card and I did not test disk performance since my HD is most likely slower then most.

np, i just bought this board from a friend without knowing anything about it except that it would support a pentium D in the future if I wanted to upgrade. There was no information on here about this board a month ago when I started but since I built this computer to run OS X 90% of the time I figured I slap this together for other people. Plus I've been on a mac since I was 5 and on OS X since the public beta when it became my primary OS. I know enough about it to make this a bit easier so if you have any other questions or if your new to the OS just ask.

My x300SE HM video card just shipped, it was 30.99 after shipping from newegg heres a link to it. From what I have seen on here this card is the lowest cost one we can get to have CI and QE working. I gave up on our onboard video. I get this card in the mail on the 11th at the latest so I'll update about it as soon as I get it (or within 10 mins since im going to put it in right away)

Hi!, i had the same MOBO with a 2.80 processor and 2 GB of ram, XFI sound board, PCI-E NVIDIA ASUS 6600, SATA 160GB HDD, but i had that problem of "waiting for root device" in the very start of the install i can log in the install part i had a copy of 10.4.5 OS X and i cant install it on my box... anyone can help me? :gathering: :sorcerer:

Hey there!! Im running under the D101GGC Intel board with a Pentium D 2.8 gig ram with Sata disks, and an NVidia 256 GeForce 6800 xtreme edition. the 10.4.3 didnt detect the ps2 ports apparently, the mouse cant be moved nor can I type. the 10.4.4 / 10.4.5 update displayed a dialog which disappeared to quickly to read what it said, and it shutdown, just like that :D. going to try with the integrated video card and with an ide disk, will try to download the latest 10.4.6 to tell you all folks! hopefully with Lan and audio :D, who knows maybe my next post will be written in Safari!

To answer both JulioM and Damian...

To fix that I had to burn 10.4.5 on the DVDRW at the lowest speed setting, it was a problem with the burn. Also make sure that the HDD and DVD drive are both set as master on different IDE busses and make sure nothing else is plugged into them. Dont trust cable select as it can still screw things up.

It could be the SATA drive thats causing it too.

Unless you know that something will work in OS X, remove or disable it until you get to the bare setup until you get everything installed, it makes it quite a bit easier. Always install using IDE and onboard video with this board first. Then try to look at other posts for people with the same hardware and see how they got the addons to work..

DO NOT USE PS2!!! It wont work. Also dont forget to disable Legacy USB support. This makes it a pain in the ass if you do a dual boot because you need PS2 to control the boot screen from windows but then if you leave the PS2 keyboard or mouse installed it wont work and your OS X will crash.

Hello there!

I tried to install OSX on my D101GGC but the network card doesn't work.

When I run the network/connection wizard, "internal network card" is disabled and only a 'serial port' is available....

did i do something wrong?

D101GGC bios ver 0312, Pentium D 805, IDE drives and OSX 10.4.6.

thanks!

Please correct this info as Toast burns all my Os X install discs fine.I am not sure what the problem was for you.I just dont want ppl thinking they can not burn install discs with Toat in os x.

Otherwise great guide :blink:

The D101GGC has Realtek ALC861 based onboard sound. It can be made to work by following any of the below mentioned guides: -

1) AppleAzaliaAudio.kext Patching: -

Step 1: Backup AppleAzaliaAudio.kext

Step 2: Edit AppleAzaliaAudio.kext
In a terminal window, type:

cd /System/Library/Extensions
sudo pico AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/Info.plist


Search for IOHDAudioCodecVendorID (Press Ctrl + W)
Change <string>0x10ec0880</string> to <string>0x10ec0861</string>

Press Ctrl + O to Save, then Ctrl + X to Exit

sudo pico AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAzaliaController.kext/Contents/Info.plist

Search for IOPCIPrimaryMatch (Press Ctrl + W)
Change <string>0xNNNN8086</string> to <string>0x437B1002</string> (Where NNNN are any characters)

Press Ctrl + O to Save, then Ctrl + X to Exit

Step 3: Cleanup the System

sudo diskutil repairpermissions /
sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleAzaliaAudio.kext
sudo chmod -R 755 AppleAzaliaAudio.kext
cd /System/Library
sudo rm -rf Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache


Reboot and you'll have sound out of 2 channels.

Im having similar problems with the same board. I used the 10.4.6 Goatsecx dvd and the onboard lan, sound and video work perfectly. My problems are I cant boot with usb enabled, I tried to disable "Legacy" and Osx86 just hangs in Darwin. The secound problem I had Is the system hangs if I type with the PS2 keyboard.

Thank U for your guide related with D101GGC motherboard built in audio configuration. I tried with AppleAzaliaAudio Kext. It worked but with some problems.
When i select Sound from System Preferences, in Output tab,

the device name and port are showing HD Audio Output
Below which the Settings for the selected device shows the error as
"The Selected device has no output controls"
The output Volume can not be adjusted.

In input tab,
The device input name is empty. displaying "No input devices found"

When I select more info from about this mac,
it shows the message No Built-in Audio.

In Extensions the Desciptions are as follows:
