My experience with asus M2A-VM (HDMI) :
DVD Installer : Kalyway 10.5.2
CPU: X2 4600+ (o/c to 2.8GHz)
Mem: 2x1GB DDR2-800
PCIe: asus Nvidia 7300LE/S
HDD: SATA 250GB
Need: Set the SATA mode to AHCI (Nothing else works) and set the options before installing according to the hardware (Graphic Card). DON'T forget to check the AMD support box (the bottom most option). This is critical).
I haven't tried the on-board x1250 (690G) VGA.
Everything seems to work. LAN 1000mbps, Sound (Out), USB, IEEE Firewire (not test), Sleep okay but it doesn't really sleep justpower-off VGA and LAN (need to re-DHCP after waking up) thepower supply, CPU, and HDD still run.
My other OSX86 Leopard tests: Asus X80LE Notebook : Kalyway 10.5.2 x3100 Graphic works perfectly. LAN 1000Mbps, Sound RT660, USB all work okay. Wi-fi not. Boot up is very very slow, about 4minutes after that it is fast with Celeron M540 1.8GHz.
I tried other installation DVD too, but I feel that I prefer Kalyway.
Thank you all for the info in this forum and other forums...

PS : all my IDE (PATA) drives (HDD and DVD) won't work at all.
