Good day.
Few questions on installing OSX 10.6 on GA-G31M-S2L

Could you help me with installing the Snow Leopard on this motherboard.
All my attempts end with kernel panic.

Used boot132 and usb hard.

Any idea?

Could you tell us what kernel panic you're getting? And also could you link to where you got your boot132 for SL from?

Isn't HPET related to DSDT.aml? can someone confirm this?

So do you use dsdt.aml? if not you can try DSDT Patche GUI.

Thank you very much.
For all your instructions to work.
Even nvidia 9800 GTX + itself earned.
There is only sound, but this is detail. =)

PS. Sorry for my bad English =)

glad that it worked for you. for sound try voodoo 32/64 for starters but do note that it has a problem after waking from sleep.

i will post the guide here and edit it a few after the official launch of snow, for now let it be a beta guide :thumbsup_anim:

I am also running this board as a second system. Try the attached zip file. Replace your dsdt.dsl in /Extra with the one in the zip file and put the ALC662.kext in /Extra/Extensions. Rebuild the Extensions.mkext in /Extra (if your using Chameleon 2).

@sk1nhd33t: I followed your tut many times, but I can't get Snow to install on my PC as it kernel panics on the 1st minute of the installation process. If you could help, thanks in advance!

hi the guide is a bit old since i made that as soon as the GM? was released (snow post wasnt allowed here at that time), i tried redoing every step again just today from scratch on my machine but i never had a problem like yours, check your uuid's maybe you forgot something or create your own dsdt.. you can also try mix matching by removing uuid's on boot.plist, boot in 32/64 or try this new installer i made with just 2 kext from extensions :).. again either of the 2 method boots without problems on mine..

Good evening.

There was a problem with sound on GA-31M-S2L

Installed AppleHDA.kext

After install this kekst sound saw in the "About this computer" .. with all the exits and so on.
But .. in the System Preferences (Sound) .. sound is not displayed .. and therefore does not play music.

Are there any thoughts on this? In what could be the problem?

Thank you.

PS. Excuse for my bad English =)

Thanks for the kext and the dsdt file! I'll test it as soon as i get home, but since i have the exact same board this shouldn't be a problem.

Does this dsdt also fix the ethernet part? It used to work in 10.5.2 but anywhere after some apple updates it stopped working. If this doesn't fix ethernet, what will :(?

Hi Guys,

I also have the GA-G31m and all is working well except the audio.

I am unsure how to rebuild the Extensions.mkext in extra ???

Any help greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards, Penno

p.s. when I replace the dsdt.dsl in /Extra, my system no longer boots and requests poweroff etc.

I also don't know how to rebuild the extensions.mkext in extra

after replacing the files from the above zip file, I now have a sound icon, but no sound (could be in the wrong jack) and still no ethernet.

any help is greatly appreciated, as this is the last steps to a perfect 10.6 install on a G31m-S2L

EDIT: got network going by installing a D-Link DFE-538TX. Still no audio tho, tried all 3 jacks.
