Hey all-

The new P55 Core i5/i7 motherboards are now working with Retail Snow Leopard Installation! A group of us have been experimenting since September, and have posted a lot of useful information on this thread in the Buying Thoughts, Reviews, and Recommendations forum:

If you're having issues installing, there are a few basic tricks that you need to do to get the system going on these boards. I wrote up a few guides specifically for P55 boards complete with files. Good luck!

thanks for the info
was looking at getting a new p55 set up but couldnt really find much info or guides for that matter maybe i didn't look hard enough lol.

currently have a Ex58-Ud4P working well, but as i'm going to update my second comp was thinking about the P55 chipset...or maybe i should stick with X58?

thanks again

Tony,
I am currently running i7 860 on a Gigabyte UD4P board, and an nvidia gts 250 video card. Are you saying that I should now be able to install the OS X onto that machine if I follow your guide? Also, will I be able to dual boot with Windows 7?

I thought I had to wait for OS X 10.6.2 before it would work for the P55 boards, it looks like you have this working without that and then updating with the combo updater.

Do you have any plans to simplifying the steps similar to Conti's MyHack Installer?

Thanks in advance

What about directions for Snow Leo retail install on P55/Core i5 from scratch, where we have no access to any other OSX install?
