Install Guide For Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have recently been trying to install Os X ML on my PC but i have ran into multiple issues:


Graphics card drivers causing boot failure

Boot partition mounts as read only at boot unless you boot into safemode

Install Usb Made with Utilitys from tonymacx86 doesn't boot unless you use -x PCIRootUID=0


This is my Hardware:


Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H MotherBoard

Intel P965+ICH8R Chipset

Intel Core 2 Duo 6420 2.13Ghz <-- Overclocked To 2.50Ghz

XFX Radeon HD 5770 Graphics Card <-- No Onboard Video

Stock Realtek ALC883 (HDA)

Marvel 88E8056 Lan <-- I dont need this but it would be nice to have it work if i do

1394a with VT6308P <-- i never use firewire

Linksys AE1000 WLAN <--- Working in OS X ML with simple patchs


My two HDD's:

1TB Seagate Windows 8

160Gb Seagate <-- Drive for Mac


There is also no DSDT for my mainboard but if need be i can extract


I would like to have full Frame buffer support for Videos, Games if possible but all i need is a system that will boot without safe-mode and that boots correctly with most of my hardware working

I am also open to all install methods but i would like to stay with either Lion or Mountain Lion if possible


Thank you all,
