Hello,

After countless of hours trying to get OSX 10.6 retail on my rig, I managed with single HDD on the first SATA 3G port. While at it I made humble attempts to patch my DSDT in windows and now i boot 32bit without kernel panic @10.6.5.

Not done yet are ;sound ,6Gb SATA, 64bit Graphics ATI5770 among others. Can anyone assist on the completion of a fully working DSDT?

Specs:
RAMPAGE III EXTREME mobo ( http://www.overclock...3_extreme/6.htm )
CPU socket - Intel LGA1366 (Using core i7-930)
Chipset - Intel X58, Intel ICH10R
DIMM socket - 6 x 240-pin, max. 24GB (Using 6Gb Memory 2*3)
Intel XMP
JMicron JMB363
Marvell PCIe SATA 6Gbps controller
Bios 10.05
Ethernet: (intel82566MM.kext works)

I'd love to hear how you make out. I've been searching the web since I purchased this board looking for a little info on installing Snow Leopard. I got Snow Leopard to install on my Dx58so with no problems, this board has given me some difficulties.

(Voodoo sound via ##### @ tonymacs blog)

Note that I'm running from the Jmicron Port as the only harddisk on the jmicron controler.
If using the 3G SATA make sure harddisk is on the first port and its alone until you can boot
with no problems then you can add other disks.

Havent tried without DSDT!

Hi guys,

Have you gotten a Vanilla installation of Snow Leopard on the Asus Rampage III Extreme yet?. I've been trying so hard, but I always get something weird, either kernel panic, or no sound... or something else.

Please I need some help here. I have been able to build 5 different Hackintoshes already, and I really fell more comfortable when I try Vanilla installations. It feels like, one you get it done, it works better than anything else. Please, please, I need some directions. This is what I'm try to put together this time.

Asus Rampage III Extreme
Intel Core i7 920 D0
EVGA GTX 260 core 216 896MB

in advance...

Thank you very much!!!

Hi alexodus,

I recently did an ssd update on my setup so below is how i went about after numerous tries.

Requierements:

  • Retail Snow Leopard 10.6 disc.
  • Flash disc with 10.6.6 combo update +##### 3.20 + DSDT.aml +1002_68b8.rom(For those with ATI5770, mine from XFX)
  • ##### disc (you can try other boot discs too)
  • Bios Settings

    Main->storage configuration->Configure Sata as AHCI

    Advanced->Onboard Device configuration->Onboard Sata6G controler->AHCI mode


Hardware Setup:
  • Attach your DVD drive to the Sata1 port(top and black) of the six sata3G ports
  • Attach your Hard Drive or SSD to your 1st Sata6G port(Top and red theres two of them). Have no other discs attached yet. You can add them when your rig works(Just to make sure you dont install on the wrong dive)

Install:
  • Boot your rig while pressing F8 as bios posts(at ROG /Intel logo splash)
  • You will end up at the boot device selection. Select your listed DVD drive in which you have put the ##### disc.
  • Once it boots and loads you will see icons indicating bootable items. Press Eject on the DVD drive and remove the ##### Disc. Load your retail Snow Leopard Install DISC and close the drive.
  • Press F5 once the drive starts spinning, you will see the ##### icon disappear and a refresh of the screen with a Mac OS X Install disc icon. Nacigate to this using your left or right arrows on the keyboard. Press Enter
  • You will boot into OSX. Select utilities at the top and go to disc utility. Partition disc drive as GPT then close when done
  • The installer will become prominent again, customise as you wish and install to your GPT partition/Disc. Reboot using ##### as we started and next select your newly installed partition from the list and boot with -v -f
  • Once through with setup plug in your flash disc and apply the combo update to your drive when done do not restart!
  • Open ##### and select 1) System Utilities. 2)ALC8xxHDA and voodooHDA 0.2.72 under audio kexts and hnaks AppleIntelE1000e Ethernet kext. 3) Under bootloader select Chameleon 2.0 RC5 Ati Experimental (I have an ATI5770 card) 4)Under customizations check themes 5) Most Important!!!! Under Kexts expand miscellaneous then check FakeSMC 7)A.o.b You might want to chose one of the Jmicron Sata kexts and a USB 3.0 kext.
  • Now Install you ##### selections but before restarting do the following
  • 1)Drag your DSDT to the root of your drive. 2)Drag your ati rom 1002_68b8.rom to /Extra folder. 3) Open com.apple.Boot.plist in /Extra and edit the DSDT key to /dsdt.aml, GraphicEnabler key to Yes, Kernel Flags key to -v and UseAtiRom to Yes. Then save the file
  • Reboot from the drive by F8 then selct the drive and cross your fingers.....Hurray 64 bit finally.......Winter project complete


Attached: boot.plist, ati5770 rom and DSDT


For Now im stuck with a Geekbench score of 4859 !!!! I will find some time google why!!!!

Cheers

Did you succeed?

As you might have guessed I'm also trying to get my hackingtosh working...
Almost same specs.
Asus Rampage III Extreme.
Core i7 930
6 GB Ram
Target harddrive Seagate 250 GB SATA.
Geforce GTX 480

No OSX disc. Testing with my Snow Leopard Flash Installation and #####.
I've reset bios to defaults and checked AHCI for all sata controllers.
I've been to tired to remove my other drives.
I've got 3 additional harddrives and 2 Dvd burners and 1 combo with Bluray reader.
I just disabled them from bios setup.
Anyways still Kernel Panic will test again when I've had some sleep.

Got mine working... :D
Needed to do a run Install with PCIRootUID=1 -x and had to run with PCIRootUID=1 on first run.
Now everything is working.
Thank you kubaf for the DSDT file and your guide it helped.
I scored over 9000 in Geekbench.

Using your guide, which I am ever so grateful for, I found on 10.6.8 I had to remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext from S/L/E in order to boot and I use PCIRootUID=1 boot flag in boot.plist.

I'm also using an ATI card, but I'm using a 5970, which I had to add to my device ID to in ATI5000Controller and disable the second GPU by editing the ATIRadeonX3000.kext for anyone else who may have this card. I had to dump my bin and add UseATIRom=Yes also.*** I USED A 7800GTX TO INSTALL SNOW LEO AND EDITED AFTER INSTALLED, PUT THOSE PCI LANE SWITCHES TO GOOD USE ;D****

As far as I can tell, 10.6.8 is running smooth after deleting AppleTyMCEDriver.kext, Only 4684 on Geekbench.

Only using ALC8xxHDA, FakeSMC, IOAHCIBlockStorage, and JMicron kexts in extra, anything I could be missing?

Do you have any Sata III SSD drives benching at the correct speed? I was thinking on going with the Rampage III if anyone has had good Sata III performance.

Don't expect great performance with SSD on X58 boards. Better results by far with Z77.

I am around 210 read / 280 write with a 330 Series 180 Go on the Marvell controller. Better scores under W7. It stills very good boards but hard to find. I have sold my R3E and moved to a R3F recently with a 980X. It rocks.
