If you have run a version update since installing the package then yes you will need to run the package again after installing it.

also what keyboard and mouse do you recommend for me to buy?

Is there any way I can put andyboot cd image onto a usb drive? I dont have a disk drive in my pc :/

It can be done but needs to be done from within os x so it's catch 22

Without an optical drive at all thats going to be tricky because the easiest way would be to burn the cd, create an image of it, restore the image to a usb drive and then install chameleon to the usb drive to ensure that its bootable. Have to confess i have not tried this but it I believe it should work.

I did a similar thing with my retail snow leopard dvd, created an image, restored that image to usb, ran the P8P67 Pro package against the usb stick and finally copied over the extra folder from the boot cd to the usb drive. This gave me a handy little emergency boot stick plus self contained usb installer for snow leopard.

Andy wonder if any one can help, just bought a dell 27inch monitor the one with the high res
connected first time the display was amazing, you have to use the dual dvi cable for the super high res.Problem when you restart you loose picture and you have to disconnect the cable and plug it back in then all is good obviously you can't keep doing this.
when you use hdmi all works well but you only get 1080 res not the 1440 any ideas.....not the graphics card as the monitor works perfect when using windows 7

i7

8 gig mem

ati 5770

Plug another cable into the video card at the same time. ie use hdmi and ddvi together and see if it works. Try several combos, has worked for me in the past.

Should work for basic install with a deluxe board - you may have to read back through the thread for audio or lan tweaks though (my brain is rusty so I cant remember the differences between all the various P8P67 boards).

you think your bootcd will find the osx installer on a usb stick?
if i eject the cd and insert the usb.... will it find it?

i could give you device ids and hardware specs for a deluxe motherboard and give it a run so you could have files for deluxe if u want.
only difference is i got an nvidia card.

You could just install the package onto the usb stick and copy the extra folder from the cd image over to the usb stick - that should make the usb bootable.

i will try that, prob is i only got 1 usb stick, 8gb... i have some probs getting the osx image onto it... if your cd works on the usb i will try to burn 10.6.3 onto my last dvd... or if u got a better solution...

Should be straightforward getting the image onto it - create an image from the install dvd, scan the image for restore data and then restore the image to the usb stick. After that try the above to make it bootable etc.

Andy, im doing 10.6.3 for the install.

Is the 10.6.7 combo update a must? or can we do 10.6.8, and/or just skip combo update all together?

Hi Andy!

I would be so happy for some help to get my gear up and running with Lion and my p8p67 pro!

I have downloaded your Andy boot-CD and have a ##### USB-stick with Lion

Do I need to use my Snow Leopard CD to install that first and then the combo and then use the Lion update if I want to use your CD?
As I have the p8p67 Pro I guess that your CD would rock! :-)

Maybe you have a link to a page or two cause I cant find a guide for this?

History:
Before I found your CD, guide and this thread I tried with #####, ##### and ##### but did not reach all the way thru. But!! I actually got my GTX-580 to work with the "C43" kexts from iparsifal.org/osx before I messed my system up ;-)
I think I messed everything up when trying to post-install your package onto LION. After restart I got this annoying freeze screen, is it called KP? Well, even if I choose to start from your CD in BIOS it freeze like that again. So, the only solution I seem to have is to start from the USB with the #####, format the disk and install LION again. But, in that way I guess it is the iBootloader which is present and.. that might interfere with your bootloader on your CD? Or how is this working?


EDIT: Now I found the guide for dummies to install LION now! So, I will try that! Thx!


Best regards

hello,
First of all, thank you to Andy for this tutorial. It works well.
I bought a magic mouse is recognized thanks to the integrated Bluetooth of my P8P67 Pro but it sometimes freezes.
Does anyone have the same problem?
Thank you to you and google trans :)
bye
