coucou: I think that I had no sleep with vanilla smbios
wingwing: you can use kext helper to install it if you don't know how to do that manually
cyclobot: I did not upgrade my EP45-DQ6 machine yet, I am still on 10.5.7, but I think that the same settings as I used for P35-DS4 should work

Hey guys,

I got Snow Leopard to install on my external 100GB USB drive no problem.

My video works fine, and I haven't tried to play around with the audio yet. Is it safe to install the KEXT files from LS8's 10.5.7 package?

Also...Once I boot into Snow Leopard, I'm not able to view ANY other hard drive (only the USB drive shows up in Disk Utility and About This Mac).

Whats the deal?

Otherwise...its been running for 19 minutes without a hiccup. *knock on wood*


My specs are:
GA-EP35-DS4
Nvidia 8800 GT 512Mb (Works with LS8's com.apple.boot from a previous package)
Network (works out of the box)

SATA cd rom - not recognized
4 other SATA hard drive - not recognized


Thanks for any tips!

Ok...well I got that fixed. I can see all my hard drives, except my DVD Burner (no biggie..I have a dual boot of Windows 7, Leopard, and Snow Leopard..lol).

Only thing left is the Audio. About This Mac will recognize it, but I get no volume bars or sound. Ideas?

Ok..sounds seems to be working now. The default output was on microphone. I set it to line out, and it works as good as it did in 10.5


My DVD burner doesn't work still. I also hooked up an additional external ESATA drive, and it also is not deteced. Something with limited SATA ports I think.

I followed this guide, and also used the provided .AML file.
http://www.teknojunk...32-coming-soon/


To get sound working, I copied the HDA file from LS8's 10.5.7 package.

To get recognition of ALL SATA HDD, I used this: http://rapidshare.de...A.kext.zip.html, along with IOATAFAMILY.KEXT from this package http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PU0SM1SK

Everything else just kinda works. I didn't need to muck around with anything.

Oh...I tried to install Snow Leopard from my 10.5.8 installation (twice) to my external USB, andd although it did install and I was able to boot (chamelion), it would lock up within second with lots of errors and Panic.

I tried Installing (the third time) from my Sister's macbook with SL, and guess what? Worked absolutely great!


You can also try this guide: http://www.insanelym...1303...although it seems too complex and involved. I got SL up and running in abuot 30 minutes from formatting to logging in.

Which file did you copy for sound?

Anyone know about the Disk Utility fix? I've followed instructions to re-install the bsd.pkg but I'm getting an install failed error. :D


My work around for this was installing Snow Leopard FROM Snow Leopard.

If you install SL from Leopard, you will get the disk utility issue. There is probably another way around it, but instaling from Snow to Snow will guarantee disk utility fix. (I tried twice from Leo to Snow Leo with Disk Utility problem...I tried twice from Snow to Snow...with no error).

Hey :-) I switched to Snow Leopard this week. The link to the guide I used is in my signature.

Somethings should be mentioned though: The install method from disk image by opening OSInstall.mpkg is definately outdated with Snow Leopard. You have to install from USB-Stick or second Partition/HD. by cloning the DVD to it.

You run into several problems if installed from disk image:

Repairing permissions don't work - receipts are not saved, which is necessary for repairing permissions.
The root of HD is messed up, with folders normally invisible getting visible.
Kernel panics after Finder shows up, which can sometimes be repaired, sometimes not.
I didn't get 64Bit-mode to work with OSInstall.mpkg-method.

Thats only my experience.

GA-P35-DS4 beeps on startup, reboot cycling, or can't overclock

This is a tip for owners of this motherboard who might have experienced the above problems, as I did. Many owners of this motherboard have despaired of a solution and gotten rid of them, needlessly. I finally discovered that the trouble is caused by the board's flakey USB support. Disconnect all of your USB devices and reboot; the beeps should go away. Then reconnect the USB devices one by one until you find the culprit. For me it was a Dell monitor with a built-in USB hub.

I have a question for you guys with the DS4 about the built in audio and LS8v17. I have been trying to use Skype, YahooVoice, Gizmo and some other Voip applications. I find that either the audio out/in ports on the front or the back of the case work. but in Apple's pref pane, the front is called External built in mic, and the one in back is called internal. In pref pane I can get either mic to work and in Skpe they both work, but in Yahoo voice, gizmo and some others....the front one won't work no matter what i've tried to do.

Do any of you have any suggestions for how I can configure something so that the mic and output on the front of the case will work more then the one on back? Ideally without disabling the output on back too? OR any theories about why Yahoo and gizmo would have problems with the apple pref pane is still showing input metering on the front mic?

Hi,
it´s an shell-command:
open terminal,
go to your expand-location (where you have saved that files)
and start that file/program (install-ls8v17.sh)
