In Topic: Lifehacker Guide with GA-EP45-UD3P Motherboard

I currently have a hackintosh running 10.5.8 with his mother board. The only difference is that i have an ATI vid card.

So, i tried updating to SL for fun to see if it would work. When i boot off the flash drive i get the initial gray screen with the apple logo on it and the little "thinking" icon underneath it. Eventually, that icon disappears and after a few seconds the screen stays that grayish/off white color and nothing happens. I'm assuming this is because i dont have the same video card as listed in this guide.

I have ordered the correct card but i just wanted to make sure it is the cause of my problem?

In Topic: Install hangs with 4 minutes remaining

I get to 4 minutes left, and it just sits there. I can still move mouse, and it seems that the dvd is spinning in the drive. However, the light on the drive isnt active.

This is a retail copy of 10.5.6 that i burned to a disc. Before the install i did the disc check and it completed without error.

Im burning another copy now at 1x to see if it fixes the issue.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

After several more attempts, its the same problem.

I have noticed that the error actually occurs with "11 minutes remaining". If i move the mouse, it jumps to "4 min. remaining" and stays there.

My DVD drive then become despondent. It will not eject. In fact, even after rebooting it will not eject. I have to power off and restart to get my drive working now.

It is an LG SATA DVD drive.

In Topic: NEW INSTALL: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R

Got the installer DVD to boot - reformatting my drive to GUID as we speak. Using Grub-DFE.iso and running with -x. slow as all hell to get the installer up, but we'll see if I can get anything working.

edit: got it working - had to boot using -x for both the installer and the mac os x partition until I installed the Natit.kext and added the PCI ID to the ATIx2000.kext file. After that, a reboot booted straight into the OS! I'm sure this could be overcome by using a modified boot132 disk, but it really isn't a hassle, so no biggie.

Im having a similar problem. I have the UD3P board, and the 2600 XT card.

When you say running with -x do you mean that you just booted with -x instead of -v?
