I'm still using this old 'board, still works great for me with a Quad CPU and is still solid as a rock. Here's some updates to keep it working nicely with 10.6.4.

The M/B Intel LAN drivers now look to be mature, use these ones AppleIntelE1000e
They support 1 Gig bit network automatically and resume/sleep without problems. There are other drivers around but non I've tried work as well as these.

10.6.4 & 10.6.3 broke USB with this motherboard (and many others apparently) with resume/sleep & various USB problems. I'm guessing a good DSDT may fix this but that's far too much effort. Too fix it simply replace the /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext with the 10.6.2 version.

I was experiencing a number of problems resuming from standby with Netkas's PCI EFI 10.5, it seemed to get worse since upgrading from OSX 10.6.2. I've now installed Chameleon RC5 r518 and the resume problems appear to have gone away.

Update: Actually the problem appears to be caused when running in 32-bit compatibility mode ("arch=i386") and using VMWare Fusion. Running in 64bit mode (which Chameleon defaults to) produces perfect standby/resume. Wake timer works properly too.

good hack


Edit

SMBios.plist edited with iMac 10.1 to match old E6300 and get correct behavior of Finder and more
org.chameleon.Boot.plist edited with hex string (EfiStudio) "Display and Ethernet" in order to make App Store updates working :

<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>USBBusFix</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>device-properties</key>
<string>a502 . . . e74</string>
</dict>

Power management and everything working nicely !!
