I don't know why my previous post was removed.

Anycase, I've HP workstation with Xeon W3680 (6 core Gulftown.X58 Express chipset).
After several attempts, I am able to boot 10.6.3 with "busratio=25" and CPUID in the BIOS disabled. All the
cores with HT enabled work just fine.

This is using Chameleon 2.0 RC4 & vanilla kernel.

Things not working:

1. NVS 295 - swapped out for Quaddro FX570
2. onboard BCM5764M gigabit ethernet - will be swapping out for Realtek
3. onboard LSI SAS controller - it appears correct kernel extension is loaded but
when I create a RAID setup in the bios Leopard doesn't recognize it. So, using
SoftRAID for now.

4. Sound - not tried yet.

Can you explain if you are using a distro like like Leohazard or did you built a custom dvd or usb using Chameleon 2.0 RC4 & vanilla. Also, what were your bios settings. Please be specific.

Thanks!

I'd like to know more about the process. Are you able to run graphics with QE and CI enabled? What method did you use to install it?

Getting the quadros to work are almost non existant or no one is posting how to do it. I have the quadro fx 4800 I have posted questions until my fingers blistered and nothing. I am starting to think it can't be done.

I'm having a HP Z400 as well but I'm having problems with the USB. It just works sometimes, like 1 out 20 reboots. I've tried with USBBusFix=Yes but that didn't help. Any ideas how to solve this?

I actually found a DSDT.aml file that made the USB work. The DSDT provided by MaLd0n in this thread: http://www.insanelym...p;#entry1655131

I also managed to get the NIC working with this kext: http://www.insanelym...p;#entry1400776
So now everything works, except sound but I don't need that.

How did you disabled the CPUID in the BIOS? Can't find CPUID in any place.
