Hi Guys,

I'm having some trouble, I'm following these instructions :] -

You can use my BootCD: http://dl.dropbox.co...926399/MBCD.ISO
Boot from it, insert the 10.6 retail DVD, press F5, enter boot arguments: -v busratio=20 cpus=1
and boot the retail DVD.
Install.
After the installation boot again from the BootCD, this time start your newly installed system (the same boot arguments). Make /Extra/Extensions folder and copy fakesmc.kext there ( netkas.org ). You have to use RealtekR1000.kext for LAN to work (I found it on kexts.com).
If you have the latest bios version (F4) you can use my dsdt: http://dl.dropbox.co...926399/dsdt.aml otherwise the 10.6.2 kernel will KP with HPET error. Install Chameleon/PCEFI. Update to 10.6.2 (via software update or combo update, both work). That's it, it should work.

Remember that in bios you need to have the sata controller set to "AHCI", not raid.



What happens is after I enter Chameleon, I enter boot arguments: -v busratio=20 cpus=1 .. Screen is filled with text, and eventually it stops at : Virtual bool IOHIDEventSystemUser:: initWithTask(task*, void*, Uint32) : Client task not privileged to open IOHIDSystem for mapping memory..

After that nothing happens..

I had these settings in BIOS:

Raid Mode AHCI
On Chip ATA Devices - Raid Mode : AHCI
Intel EIST - Disabled
C1E Support - Disabled
Load Line Calibration - Disabled
Spread Spectum - Disabled
Active Processors - All


Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

PS: I've already looked at the P55 forum, there doesn't seem to be anyone with MSI P55 board...

Hello,
just wanted to share my thoughts.

I got vanilla 10.6.2 running on my core i5 and gigabyte ga-p55-ud3 boards. It's fully stable. However, the cpu in "about this mac" is still shown as unknown, as are the P55 based sata and usb controllers. Strange, I thought, the new iMac has EXACTLY the same components, it has to, P55 is for now the only chipset working with core i5.

The mystery was solved when I saw first quadcore iMac benchmarks. Mac OS X 10.6.2 (Build 10C2234), not build 10C540 as we all have. So, they have a custom build. We'll probably have to wait until 10.6.3 for full i5/P55 support.

Real iMac benchmarked with Geekbench scores over 6000. The same my i5 on Windows 7, however on 10.6.2 it scores only 4900. Waiting for the release of 10.6.3....


What graphics card are you using, btw? I've used your instructions, but get a blank screen when using the 10.6.2 kernel, no problem when using the qoopz kernel, but I'm trying to figure out if it's due to a kext incompatibility or possibly my dsdt file.

Hey,

Thanks for reply :], but it doesn't seem to work, what happens is the apple logo shows up and it starts loading, but never ends.. in other words it hangs.. I've tried waiting, over 10min same thing..

Hi,

GA-P55-UD3 works great with Core i7 860 under 10.6.2

Search google for Empire Efi 1.08!
Boot, Install from origin DVD, Update to 10.6.2, an Use the integrated Bootloader Installer (pkg very easy)
and then I uses Kexts from another Boot-132 Project to get all running under 64Bit!
The name of the project i don´t remember.
nVidia works with EFI-String, Sound with Voodoo HDA and Network with 64BIT R1000.kext,
DSDT fro RTC and CMOS Fix!

Only the Intel P55 is shown as Unknown AHCI

Konfig:

Ga-P55-UD3 F4i Beta Bios
Core i7 - 860
8 GB DDR-3 1333 (4x2 Kingston)
NVidia 9400GS 512MB
2TB Seagate SATA
LG DVD

greetings from Germany

Hi everyone,
I am trying to instal SL on the p55-ud3 with radekge's method.
I am getting "waiting for root device" message before the osx install, i've tried all the sata ports and all the ide/ahci combinations without success.
I have an ide dvd drive, do i need a sata one ? Does anybody installed OSX succesfully on the p55-ud3 with an ide dvd drive ?

Thanks.

My config:
ga-p55-ud3
core i5 750
4gb ocz gold 12800
ATI HD4850
WD Caviar 500 GB Sata2
LG ide DVD drive

Thanks,
Ben

Would you share your BIOS settings? I have exactly setup as yours. I have my hard drive with Snow Leopard ready to go to be connected to my hackintosh pc. The only thing it bothers me is BIOS settings

To solve the 'system speed too fast' issue:

Use the modified boot file for P55 boards located here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/ak0769

It is a Chameleon RC3 boot file modified for i5 and i7 processors.

There should be no need for any special boot flags with 10.6.2 Vanilla kernel. Good Luck!

Read this thread for any help with P55 boards- lots of info and files: http://www.insanelym...p...6155&st=380



I meant RTC as in "Real Time Clock"- I have patched DSDT for CMOS reset issue. For now the only way to make the system run in 'Real Time" is to use the i5 boot file.



hey i´m sry but i am a noob can you tell me what i have to do with this boot file:D thanks
