Is there any experience with the GA-EP35-DS4?
I've made a clean install on a test drive. Have no sound or ethernet there so far. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
Yes, there is!
Now, I found out that you need the IONetworkingFamily.kext from your previous 10.6/10.7/10.8 installation for working ethernet - install it with tools like kext utility, restart - done.
For audio, just run multi...you know tool I'm talking about (any version) and select in the drivers section the ALC889/885 without DSTL. Repair system preferences and reboot - boom, there you go. Just forget AppleHDA.
Last thing is graphics. By default, Mavericks will let me boot in 1024x768. Looks kinda weird on a 24" so I changed the resolution in my org.chameleon.Boot.plist in /Extra to 1920x1080.
My graphics card (AMD Sapphire HD6850 1GB) is regocnized by the system out of stock, I've added a DSTL from my previous 10.8.5 installation -
but I have no possibility to change to another resolution via system preferences-->monitors. There appears nothing - nada...rien...just nothing. --> holding down the option key while clicking on "scaled" reveals three possible resolutions...better than nothing.
