..FavleX,

So you installed everything (all components) and it works fine? Shutdown should work once you have installed the netkas 9.2.0 kernel. If the netkas kernel is better in any way than the vanilla, use it (thats what I'm using). If it doesn't do anything for you, then you might as well use the vanilla kernel. If you get good benchmarks without AHCI mode, then thats great (I'm assuming that you installed the SATA driver then right?). That will shave a few seconds of your boot time, and you will be able to use both OS X and Windows in harmony without changing AHCI settings (cause XP doesn't support AHCI)
..

HI.
Yes like u said the shutdown issue is gone forevere, and i'm using ahci(no ,I haven't any win at the moment..), unfortunately the sleep isn't working anymore , so I'll take few mins for trying the vanilla one.About no ahci , do u think I could miss some performance on cpying large files ?
Thanks again.

its the most recent kernel included (the one without speedstep for getting sleep again)?
I will give it a shot on one of my systems. Thanks for your work!

FavleX,

Thanks, and good luck! :D

rhalls,

The one included is the netkas one without sleep but with speedstep (the older one). If you want I can include both in the final release :)

ok.
with vanilla the prob about shutdown persist, but if u use the last netkas sleep kernel , u got everything working well , a bit less vanilla, a bit more working.Sleep+Shutdown+Reboot at 100%
Now we can choose :)
Thanks.

Yep :o

Everyone, I just modded it a bit so it includes both the speedstep and sleep kernel:

I won't bother uploading this version but it'll be there in the final.

P.S. Does anyone feel like this should be out of beta now and that it should be publicly released?

I have to say, Nice work PCWiz. I used the SATA driver for now on DS3P Rev 1.1 on a ToH install. I may use netkas's kernel but I think I like sleep better than shutdown ;)

Wiz, I'm going to try this on my new EP35-DS3R build. I noticed you said you took this out of "beta" and it's final, but the upload date on your link is still 3/5. So nothing changed?

My install went smooth as silk, Wiz, great job.

Smooth as silk, that is, until I tried to do GFX-EFI for my Geforce 8800GT (256meg version) using Agrafuese's tutorial. Now I get a black screen on boot. I think I'll try another method to get this thing working. Maybe the NVinstaller...

Black screen may be due to wrong kernel. You are probably running 10.5.2 with 10.5.1 kernel.
Just wait few minutes when you get that black screen, it should boot up in Leo after a few minutes.

Then issue in Terminal: uname -a
And report back what you got.

Hope this helps!

Ok, somehow I really borked things, so I started over. Kalyway 10.5.1 (using MBR, only the two Vanilla Kernels and MBR bootloader selected), then Kalyway 10.5.2 Combo Installer, Kalyway kernels package (went with the Speedstep). I then ran your driver installer-- I have the GA-EP35-DS3R. Ethernet is fine, but I don't have sound. My mobo has the same audio as all the other Gigabytes-- did I do something wrong?

I still haven't tried to tackle the video driver yet for my eVGA 8800 GT (256 meg)-- I'll try the latest nVinstaller this time around. Do you recommend doing the Leopard Graphics Update before or after using nVinstaller?

Thanks a ton for all the info you've provided, pcwiz-- I don't think I'd be doing this at all if it weren't for your guides.

Yup, theres something wrong with the sound driver installation in the package. 3 people have reported it so far. Just reinstall only the sound driver and nothing else and it should be fine I think :P Do the Leopard Graphics Update before :P

You're welcome :blink:

Thanks wiz-- I'll try running your package again and installing only the sound driver tonight, and I'll report back.

Worked-- running your package again and installing only the sound driver worked fine.

Nvinstaller .41 worked like a charm on my 8800GT too. Finally got everything working-- now just need to get comfortable with OSX!

Thanks again, pcwiz.
