10.6.6 IODeviceTree Asus P5GD1-VM

28 April 2011 - 02:02 PM

Hello Guys, long time reader, new poster.
I've been building Hackintosh systems for about 3 years now and have learned a lot, but I'm stuck with this one problem on this relic of a computer that I've build for my parents.
I'm wondering if someone can help me out with this, I don't know what else to do to fix this.

The relic specs are:

Asus P5GD1-VM Motherboard
Pentium 4 3ghz
1GB RAM
1 WD 250GB SATA HDD (2 partitions, 1 system partition and 1 storage partition)
1 WD 80GB IDE HDD (Used for Time Machine)
1 LG IDE DVD Burner
Nvidia 265Mb 6600 Video Card

I installed HAZARD 10.6.6 distro, everything works pretty well.
Chameleon Bootloader
Audio works using Voodoo HDA 2.6.2
USB, Shut Down and Restart all work.
LAN works using Intel 10/100 with DSTS Patcher right from the Distro.

I was screwing around with this system for two weeks now and it's frustrating.
On the Distro there is no INTEL SATA/IDE Controller, so I installed using AppleNForce as that was the only thing that worked, trust me I have tried to install with all the different Chipset and Sata/Pata controllers on that disrto. The only thing that worked to get a full install without kernel Panic was using, AppleNForce and AHCISataFix.
Now I now that those are not relevant to the Chipset of the motherboard, but some how it worked.

So here is the Problem:
The motherboard does NOT support AHCI, so in the BIOS I have SATA + PATA Enhanced Mode,
when I check the Console Error Log it keep coming up with this:

So the problem is Error getting a reference to IODeviceTree:/options which I think has to do with the SATA PATA controller. The system just keeps randomly Freezing.
Any ideas, help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

PS: I'm not a coder and not very good at editing kexts or adding any code anywhere.

E-SATA on Asus P5WD2, Help please!

20 September 2010 - 03:00 PM

Hi guys, new to the forums here. Just need a little help.

I've successfully build a Hackintosh since 10.5.4, I've used majority of distros out there, such as kalyway, ideneb, iatkos etc.

I have recently updated my Hackintosh to SnowLeopard 10.6.2 HAZARD.

I have almost everything working, system runs beautiful except my FireWire and External SATA port, can't seem to get those working, I was hoping if someone could shed some light on this.

My system is:

Asus P5WD2 Premium motherboard.
Intel® Pentium® Processor Extreme Edition 840 (2M Cache, 3.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)
4 GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB

Runining SnowLeopard 10.6.2

I have installed the AHCI and JMICRON drivers, but the Firewire and E-SATA just don't work.
In the System profiler Firewire says Maximum Speed up to 400MB but when I plug in a HDD through firewire nothing happens, same goes for e-sata when I plug it in nothing happens.

Can you guys please point me in the right direction as to what other drivers I need to intall or what can be done about this.

Thanks, in advance.
