First of, hello and thanks to everyone taking the time to look at my project.
Here is what I have:
Asus P5Q Pro
Intel C2D QX9650
2GB x 4 DDR2
Asus D2X Xonar (cmedia based, not sure with chip exactly) Reverted to onboard audio
Asus HD 5850 Radeon 1 GB pcie
WD Raptor 300GB SATA 2
LG DVD-RW DL SATA
TP-Link 802.11n PCI-e
And my goal:
Get a vanilla OSX Mavericks installed with all devices working with latest released drivers that will be update capable when a new version is released.
I may want to install a
USB 3.0 pcie card and USB BT 4.0 module.
I don't have access to any Mac desktop computer but I may be able to do the vm route to create my USB installer ( finger's crossed)
Please point me to relevant guides/tuts/similar build threads.
I tried to search the forums but the amount of information is overwhelming, I would like to approach this as concise and efficient as possible.
What I know so far ( or I think I know) :
I may need to generate DSDT in Windows
I may need to create DSDT
I may need custom files for power management
I may to pick a bootloader that works for my needs
I may be way over my head on this one.
What I don't know:
Alot! So please any help will be most appreciated.
I will keep this thread updated with my progress and of course my hurdles.
Have a good day.
updated to 10.9.4 via app store, audio and wifi kext needed to be re-installed to bring machine back to normal functionality.
