I'm a linux guy so I'm not afraid to get down and dirty here. With that said my current project is to install osx86 onto this server motherboard and get the 8800gts working with QE/CL. I currently have a working system with Ethernet but no sound or DVD drive. The DVD drive wont reconize and I did not yet install a sound card. I am using the chocolate_kernel and do not need any boot flag to boot up. The real problem is the graphics. If I can get this up I don't care about DVD or sound.
Intel Server mobo (I think this is the board)
Dual Processor - Dual Core 3.0Ghz
4GB DDR2 - 800Mhz
8800gts 320mb [g80]
320GB - Portable HDD (for sandboxing/installing)
iPortable Snow Leopard 10.6.2 - chocolate_kernel
The 8800gts 320mb [G80] will not install. No QE/CL, no hardware acceleration. No Front Row. I have tried the following:
- EFI Studio
- OSX86 Tools EFI tool
- GraphicsEnable.pkg (or something rather. I can get the exact name)
- Deleted Framebuffer.kext & installing the kexts that come with iPortable Snow
Please help I am 5 days into this and I have lost sleep over it thinking I am 'almost there' with each step. Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated!
