Hey everyone out there! I have a quick question regarding a custom build I would like to install 10.6.7 on. Let me give you the specs and maybe someone out there is nice enough to explain the best method to go about this. I have done a fair amount of reading and it seems that Gigabyte motherboards, my GA-G31-ES2L being one of them, are fairly easy to work with if you have a custom dsdt.



My specs:

CPU: Pentium E5800 3.2 GHz

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-G31-ES2L

RAM: 4GB DDR2 PC6400

Graphics: Gigabyte GeForce GT220 1 GB

Hard Drive: 64 GB Kingston SSDNow V100 SSD



I chose these specs based off of the OSx86 Project HCL, so I know that all of them will work. I was thinking about doing the ##### + ##### method, but for that I need a dsdt.aml of my system. I am a bit confused on how I should do it. I did read a thread earlier about it, but they chose a different boot CD. I am sure that shouldn't matter, but just to be safe I wanted to ask others who are clearly more experienced than I.



I really appreciate any help that I can get. I know I need to patch it, but I would love if those steps could be fully outlined for me. I am new to Mac, but not computers, so one clear explanation should do wonders. Thanks again.

Thank you LatinMcG for your quick reply. I am not home right now, but I will check when I do. If it is a Rev 1.x, then you are saying I should use the dsdt patcher, put the dsdt file on my desktop, and then use the userDSDT option in ##### to install chameleon, kexts, and any necessary things?

Did you use the #####/##### method?
