Thanks so much! I've built a couple of hackintosh machines since late 2007 using Kalyway on various Gigabyte boards from the P35 and 945 chipsets. Now after more than a year of absence, I'm back to building new ones using the EP45 and the G31M-ES2L using the boot -132 Retail Leopard.

I've been eyeing this thread for a while and been meaning to use this board, but this time I want to try Snow Leopard. I will also try to learn this DSDT thingee as I am pretty new to it.

Thanks Thijmus and everybody for sharing valuable information. I hope to post my progress here soon.

Ok, did you already try a different boot loader? like Chameleon or Pc-efi
Can you give me some more info; did you already install snow or are you still stuck with the restored snow 8gb flashdrive and installing the bootloader to the usb.
I changed my initial post with added info maybe it can help

Ok just got this motherboard today and have put all the components together.

Here's my set-up:

Gigabyte GA-EG45M-UD2H (mobo)
LG Sata Super Multi-DVD Rewriter 22X with Light Scribe
Corsair HX620W (psu)
Corsair XMS2 2x1Gb DDR2 800
Q8400
Seagate 250Gb Sata
Western Digital 500Gb Sata
Inno3D iChill 8800GT 512mb
Thermaltake Lanbox

As I don't have time to set-up Snow Leopard retail on it yet, I did try to boot the machine. Take note that the Seagate 250Gb was my boot HD from my P35-DS4 Hackintosh before that was running Kalyway Leopard 10.5.2 (before my mobo fried!).

Initially, I couldn't figure out why the machine wouldn't power up normally and would not even boot up to the BIOS as it would turn on and off continuously. So I took off the graphics card first to troubleshoot. I turned it on, powered up successfully and set up the the necessary BIOS settings. Rebooted into the verbose mode and voila, much to my surprise the machine booted into Leopard! Of course there wasn't any sound and Quartz Extreme is not supported and Core Image says "Software".

Certainly within the next few days, I will try to set-up Retail Snow Leopard then I will keep you guys posted with my progress.

That's nice

here are all the files needed for your system, with edited dsdt and smbios.plist
still without speed step but for that i need more info form your cpu

T

btw i forgot also edit com.apple.Boot.plist for your screen resolution

see attached images for different boot loader structure (first is boot-think, second is for Chameleon or pc-efi)

Hi Thijmus,

I have the same mobo as you. Got video and ethernet working now in x64. Have you had any luck getting audio to work in x64 with the files you've posted above?

Hi there,

you can try Voodoohda it works in 64bit, i did not test it because i want my system to run in 32bit
There are more board's with alc889a 0x1458A102 id 12 like the GA-EP45-DS3R, GA-EX58-UD5 & ga-ex58-ud4p so maybe they have found a solution yet (like a legacyhda version)

I'm quite lost here...

And the boot think file in rapidshare is unavailable. I'm getting a message that says the file was deleted by the uploader.

Hi Thijmus,

Thanks for the pointer on VoodooHDA. Unfortunately it didn't work.

I've used the solution below (at post #388 and the attached ALC889a kext). I followed your example by running x32 only and sound works fine.

Many thanks for all your help with this and all your valuable info in getting this motherboard working.

I can get sound output in 64bit with VoodooHDA.kext. Only 2 channel output, no input nor 5.1 channel, the sound get break up after wake up from sleep, need restart to get it back to normal.
