you could start by saying specifically what you need help with. I would follow one of the guides for an x58 system... I followed/looked at these two to get mine working:

try to read up alot before you start and understand everything. There is a script for x58 systems here:

Hi, you're right about there isn't any guide specifically for a MSI X58!!

I have a MSI Pro-E and the only close thing that I've found was related to a MSI WIND...

I have a iAktos v1.5.8 installed in a external USB HD, but after install and while doing the first boot it stops loading just after the message ""using 9175 buffer headers and 4096 cluster buffer IO headers", which apparently is a DSDT problem of not correctly identifying the right hardware for our motherboard.

I've searched a lot but could not find anything "easy to use" to try to boot Mac OS X in this MB, and now 10.6 Snow Leopard is about to be released ...

We definitely need some sort of beginners guide oriented into this MB from MSI.

Just my two cents ...

Cheers,
Paulo

you likely don't need a guide just for your motherboard specifically. Theres not a guide for my motherboard specifically, but i followed the advice for various x58 systems and got it working... you have to realize that even though all motherboards are different, a lot of them use similar chipsets. your x58 has a good chance of being compatible since there aren't a lot of options out yet
