In Topic: [GUIDE] Retail OS X Install (10.5.8) on Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 (Core i7) Mobo

23 July 2009 - 08:00 PM

Now that I have this all running is there a way to make it where all the EFI, etc. are on a USB flash drive?

Simple, unlike Fut1i1ity, who had strange problems (probably with an old kernel), this works like a charm with DD's script. I have done this several times and no issues along the line of Fut1i1ity's.

Also, when SL disks come out we would be able to install directly from the DVD.

You mean from the DD script in Leopard and create SL install w custom kexts? No. Snow leopard does system level commands such as mkext rebuilding differently and is incompatible. Once one is in SL they can mkext rebuild with mkext maker for SL. Also once in SL, DD's script can be used. At least this is what I have been told.

Can the script be setup to install the necessary parts to a USB drive?

Already answered yes on that. And obviously as I said before you cant install snow leopard kexts on leopard.

In Topic: Boot-132 causes reboots on DX58SO w/Core i7

You guys know that you need 10.5.7 to get the i7 to work?


This is false. You need the flag busratio=20 with voodoo kernel if you use i7 before 10.5.7. How do you think the i7 community has been getting by since the i7 introduction?

Forget about boot-132 disk, this is trash and does not work well with i7, use iatkos, which is basically boot-132.

With iatkos v7, you pretty much is boot-132 with retail and works with i7.

On iatkos website they have this message here:

ISSUE 01:
CORE i7 extrange behavior on boot....
Solution:
Boot with the flag busratio=20 or use Voodoobased 9.7 kernel on DVD using the flag mach_970 on dvd boot prompt.


If you still have problems, disable simutaneous multi-threading off and change active processor cores to 1.

In Iatkos 7 check this stuff for everything (except for graphics, which you should know)

Now Check the following
iAtkos v7 Main System
Chameleon V2
Extra Directory
DSDT
DSMOS
9.7.0 Kernel Voodo
APIC Driver
Disabler
OHR
Remove TyMCE
AHCI
Intel Sata/IDE
Voodoo HDA driver
Intel Gigabit Lan Drivers
If you have gt200 do this...
Drivers>VGA>NVidia>Enablers>NVEnabler
Drivers>VGA>NVidia>nVidia GT200 EVGA

gotta fix smbios.plist in /extra, read up on that for the ddr3

No one would kill himself over a phone.


False, people kill themselves over stupid things every day. For example, the suicides after Michael Jackson's death.

if we dont have a reply in the next 8 or so hours on this topic, i'll be installing 3 gtx 260's into it.

I hope this goes straight forward. i dont want to jack with this all day but would love to have osx on a i7


You should look at netkas website as well as the graphic card section of this website for info on if or how SLI is possible on OSx. Dont depend on this thread because most Macintosh Users aren't hardcore gamers.

In Topic: iPhone maker suicide

Meanwhile in China... suicide seems to be the way to go for manufacturing mishaps.

25 year old Sun Danyong killed himself after losing an iPhone prototype. He jumped out of the window and fell to what would have to be a gruesome death. He worked for a company called Foxconn, which was under investigation by Apple for workplace conditions. Foxconn itself is a major player in manufacturing and Apple uses it to make iPods and iPhones.


You forgot to mention the 14 story fall and that it is being investigated as Murder.

Apple related Murder.

Dude, that s.hit is sad. F.uck apple for allowing this to happen and not compensating the family. It gives me more reason to not buy snow leopard and get it from the green demon.
