In Topic: Asus P8P67 Pro install guide

I have built a new set of packages for 10.6.8 along with version 5 of my boot cd.

P8P67Pro V5.0 http://www.mediafire...zw6tm54qwmm2cw4
P8P67 V5.0 http://www.mediafire...1bnza3a8vg1vg9j

Boot CD
AndyBoot V5.0 http://www.mediafire...6lasyx8ojnpu72j

The boot cd contains both of the packages listed above so if you download the boot cd you don't need to download the packages.

Important - These packages were created specifically for use with 10.6.8 or Lion (yes they work with Lion too) and as such they no longer install either the ATI drivers or the mach_kernel (neither are needed with 10.6.8 or Lion as they both contain newer versions of both).
If you want to use these packages with 10.6.7 or earlier then you will need to install a sandybridge compatible mach_kernel (you can use pacifist to extract it from the 10.6.8 combo update or use the one on the boot cd) otherwise you will not be able to boot from your hard disk.

Install method using boot cd 5
If installing from scratch be sure to download the 10.6.8 combo update to another drive or memory stick first.

1 - Boot from the boot cd, swapping the cd for the os x install dvd when the loader menu shows
2 - Wait a few minutes and press f5 then use the cursor keys to select the os x install dvd if it isn't auto selected
3 - Once the install is complete run disk utility to repair permissions and proceed to install the 10.6.8 combo update - I've had the 10.6.8 update fail a few times near the end - hopefully running permission repair before installing will avoid this. If it does crash you will need to boot up from another install and run the update from that install changing the install location to the bodged one - that will fix it.
4 - Once you have completed the update to 10.6.8 reboot again using the boot cd
5 - Install the package relevant to your motherboard from the boot cd - ie P8P67Pro package for the Pro or P8P67 package for the non pro.
6 - reboot and hopefully enjoy 10.6.8

Whats changed since version 4?
The boot cd uses a newer chameleon build,
The packages no longer install the mach_kernel or ATI drivers - neither are necessary for 10.6.8 or Lion,
The packages now install ShowAllFiles, Pacifist, Kext Utilty and Carbon Copy Cloner applications along with British Keyboard Layouts (you can select the keyboard layouts via Language and Text from the preferences panel).
The packages will fix audio in 10.6.8 or Lion by rolling back the AppleHDA kext.
The packages will backup your current com.apple.Boot.plist and DSDT.aml files if present and replace them with new ones.
Please NOTE - By default GraphicsEnabler is set to No in the com.apple.Boot.plist that the package installs to the Extra folder so you may want to edit this and set it to Yes if you have a supported graphics card.


Hi i can't get the sound to work, i had sound working before applying the new update for lion dp4. Now i cant get sound working in any way... I have no sound assertions so its not that. I have a p8p67 pro. I have tried your new package but no difference. It would be fun to know what kexts apple replaced in the new update.

I use the ones from MultiHack and without using their "system utilities" which I've had issues with corrupting the kext caches. I then run Kext Wizard and rebuilt all EXTRA and EXTENSIONS caches without issues.

do you use the hda rollback? or the specific enabler?
