Hey,

Ok, so I have managed to get Kalyway 10.5.1 installed with no problems, My motherboards onboard nic (it's an Asus P5KPL-VM) does not get recognized by the installer. I have installed a Dlink DFE-538TX as it work with 10.4.9.

I cannot get either of these devices to work.

Has anybody managed to get this card and/or the onboard nic for the P5KPL-VM working at all?

Please help! :P

Quick edit: The onboard nic is an Atheros L1 Gigabit ethernet controller

Well, just in case anyone was interested in this, I have solved the problem with the Dlink card.

I'm now using Kalyway's 10.5.1 release, but I've had to install the ViaRhine.kext package from tubgirl's 10.4.10 release.

Now my system is running beautifully :D

Hi obs0lete,

I got the same mobo as you have.

what BIOS settings do you have?

So far I tried to install with my dvd and HD hooked on internal IDE, that did not work.
Then I put the DVD in an external USB case, same result. Could it be OSX86 needs a SATA-disk connected?

thanx in advance!

EDIT: Indeed, OSX needs a SATA DVD drive to boot the installer. figured that one out today.
EDIT2: OSX will not work with the built in 3100 vga on this mobo.


My setup:
laptop: see signature

new project under way:
asus p5kpl-vm mobo: works
intel E2180 dual core 2gHz: works, shows up as a core 2 duo
XFX nvdia 7300 GT works with nvinject
2gb 667mHz ram
Seagate 320GB SATA HD

A question... What bios release do you have?

I've tried v303 and v608. I can't downgrade to v201 due to eeprom incompatibilty.

Eddi

Hi, thejollybous,

I've the same issue than you, I solved by installing another video card. (nv gf 7600gt)

Strange, but it seems to be an issue with gma3100 and hd controller.
