680i chipset sucks for mac. It's simple as that. But it can be done.

This may work for other people too.

Things you need:

-PATA HDD
-Kalyway 10.5.1 disk
-Tiger disk (10.4.1) (it will only say 10.4 os x install disk not 10.4.1 install disk) from the bay
-external usb drive (6 gig's or more. )
-DVD burner (PATA)
-ipod/external usb drive

Get it all together, burn both disks then come back here. Print this out, it'll make your life a lot easier.

Now get ready for the fun. It's not that hard. Let's begin

1. Boot your computer normally, mash [delete] until the cmos comes up (The blue screen with all the options)

2. using your arrow keys, hit down until you get to where the reset all things is highlighted. hit [enter], then reset it.

3. now go into the bios again, disable any extra cores [chipset features > cpu configuration] then hit [F10], pop in the tiger 10.4.1 install disk and make sure your usb drive is plugged in. You may have to boot with -v if it hangs.

4. after the gui loads, go to the top bar, click on [utilities > disk utility], then format the usb drive with a one worded title, as MAC OS X Extended journaled (the default), format shouldn't take long.

5. close out of the disk utlitity and install mac os x without any special stuff to save time. {Will take about an hour or two} take out the disk

6. reboot, then hit [ESC] at boot, scroll down to hard disks then select the usb drive. now hit [F8] Quickly, and rapidly.

7. Boot with -x -f -legacy cpus=1, and follow the menus and make the account you want to make. after it loads to the desktop. now reboot with the kalyway disk in the drive

8. no options are needed to boot, so just sit back and let it load. then format your PATA drive with disk utility, but this time go to partition and selct one partition, hit options and make sure it says mbr (MAKE SURE YOU GIVE IT A ONE WORD NAME)

9. Install it without any drivers. The only thing you need to select is the mbr bootloader. UNCHECK VANILLA AND EVERYTHING ELSE

10. let it install. Go play call of duty 4 or something for an hour or two

11. boot into leopard with the -x option.

12. follow the stuff again like you did in tiger, but this time, import the account you made from the usb drive.

13. anytime you boot you will have to boot with the -x option. tough cookies until I figure it out.



Some notes:

-I can't get audio working

-I can't get both cores working

Sounds promising - Thanks for putting it together for those of us with a 680i.

I haven't got a 6GB USB pen, unfortunately, so I can't put it to the test :(

hmmm, well you could use an ipod or just partition 6 gig's off to install on. I'm not sure of the exact size of the install, but I said 6 gig's to be safe.

The only other option I could think of was to figure out how os x finds accounts and just copy that to a folder on a flash drive.

I NEED AN AUDIO SOLUTION

I've tried azalia, specialty drivers and hda patcher specific for my mobo with no luck. If anyone knows how to get audio working, please let me know. I'm gonna install all the drivers one by one from the iATKOS disk.

To get around needing to install Tiger to a usb drive, just boot with -S and enter:

/sbin/mount -uw /

passwd root

touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

reboot

no need to mess with these now,
just wait for a moment for the new release of iatokas,
that will have some supports on nforce chipsets.
