Current OS X Version: 10.5.1 (KALYWAY_LEO_10.5.1intel_SSE2_SSE3)
Install method: hassle free built-in v8.0 EFI with vanilla kernel F8 dvd option and vanilla kernel installation option.
Model: Gigabyte 965P-S3 (Identified as Mac Pro)
Audio: working with Azalia OUT installation option patch. DOES NOT work with ALC_883 (same with mainboard!!) installation patch, sound in (mic) not working/identified.
LAN: working out of the box with proper iinternet speed, haven't checked gigabit speed.
Model Number: Core 2 Duo E6300
Recognised as: 1.87GHz, 2 Cores
Memory/DDR:Gskill 4x1024MB/DDR2 800Mhz
Model:7950GT XXX 512MB
Bus Type: PCI-X
Dual screen working?: not tested, both ports work though with single 24" display
QE/CI working? YES 1920x1200/changeable/rotateable
Required patches or bios flashing? YES, no known way of OS booting without ROM flash, except with -x option, no acceleration then. So, with patched ROM using windows utility/dos utility/floppy, works perfect (update: some rare artifacts, vanish when turning monitor OFF>ON) with Natit drivers
NVinject drivers cause frequent blue and other HUE-ish pixel artifacts especially in dark areas, visible in the introduction video, some fractional pauses as well.
SATA/IDE working: working out of the box, 2x500GB SATA (copy speeds seem even better than in XP Pro SP2, roughly 2GB+/min from 500GB to other sata 500GB), 1x300GB IDE, SATA DVDRW, IDE DVDRW not working, all controllers set to IDE at bios
boot from built-in DVD/CD combo drive (SATA)
osx boot drive Seagate 500GB (GUID partition table, 2 partition is FINE)
if problems with partitioning erase whole disk with erase data option, cancel erasing after few seconds to erase first sectors.
Wifi & patches?: not built-in with my hardware
other peripherals/pci addon cards? PCI firewire card works out of the box, USB 2.0 4-port PCI out of the box
Dell 2407WFP usb hub works out of the box.
Wacom Intuos3 6x11 (A5wide) works out of the box trough installation and on, drivers needed for full use (other than a...slow mouse)
PS2 mouse and PS2 keyboard worked fine.
problems only with automatic restarting after installation completion, just hard reset and good to go and first-boot from SATA harddrive. could be installed in IDE drive as well, appears in installation option/disk utility, though not tested.
various forced shutdowns while using VMWARE on os x (linux, xp installations), and .zip/.rar/packages processing. Reminds me of classic forced shutdowns of G5's when treating "bad" files or unrepaired volumes, yet more frequent...
Xbench crashed in UI test with NVinject drivers (possible cause), worked ok with Natit drivers.
Overclocking with system bus/memory works perfect, no problem with E6300 1.87Ghz@3.15Ghz with standard (auto) voltages.
update: Photoshop CS3 extended installs ok but fails -system must be hard-rebooted- in "heavy" tasks. I have noticed hangs most of the times i strain the system.
will post update with Adobe CS3 and Final Cut pro installations.
