Added Id to nvdan50hal. Nvdan40hal, nvdoresman
Misc boot flags
Asus p5n-e sli mobo
PNY 8400gs 512 PCI 0x06e4 VGA/DVI
Aiktos s3 v2
This would be a perfect install if I could just get this card working properly. Have a sneaking suspicion it's nvdan50hal. PLEASE anybody that can help. Spent all weekend on this. Thanks!

Unfortunately my internet is down right now so I can't send you those. I don't use dsdt either. Posting this on my phone.

I know. A vanilla install is always better. But I don't choose anything but nforce under sata for my mobo. Have no ahci option. And I've used distros many times without a problem. So who knows. May have to just give this up. I hate being defeated by this card. Grrrr.

No explicit AHCI option in BIOS is not an issue...........invariably on nForce MOBOs with a BIOS that does not have an explicit SATA Controller Mode with an AHCI mode setting, enabling RAID but disabling each SATA RAID channel in BIOS (assuming that you are not using a RAID setup) implicitly enables AHCI mode........

Your Asus p5n-e sli MOBO has a 650i chipset, so match all your BIOS parameter settings that match the corresponding BIOS parameters for the 650i BIOS settings for OS X, that I have listed in my nForce BIOS template attached to my previous post.....

Well Verdant, I followed EXACTLY the mobo settings and it made no difference. Also, I have no option for AHCI under Jmicron. So I just chose enabled. Still, iatkos S3 installs no problem with nforce sata option and boots fine. Graphics still a no go. Stuck at 1024x768 no matter what I try. Trying to install iatkos L2 to correct this and maybe have a bit more current system still no go. Install is fine when I use the nforce sata package from iatkos S3 on my usb installer but post install I get waiting for root device after a long string that mentions something about uuid and IOResource something or other. There is no option on iatkos L2 for nforce sata. Tried all the other sata options on install. Even all at once. Ugh. So I don't know. Maybe it's time to just quit. But I can't!! Have to know why this why work. Bugs me.

UPDATE: Managed to update to 10.6.8 with combo updates. Also found a 64 bit kext for nforce sata. So no more arch=i386. Was hoping that would let me use nvenabler64 since I'm booting 64 bit now but no. Same old same old. Most things I try give me a black screen. So then I have to boot -x to remove whatever I did. And with a jumpy out of control pointer. What a pain. What could be causing this!!!? SOMEONE out there has to know. Please?
