  1. Slow HDD access speeds

    i have the same problem using a gigabyte 965p-ds4 mainboard. how did you manage to figure out what sis id you have?
  2. slow perfomance

    well, my read support are at about 7MB/sec and the write support never goes beyond 3MB/sec when i look at it in the activity monitor. maybe its because i'm using ntfs-3g for my ntfs disks that contain most of my music, movies etc. but it seems like the systems HFS+ partition is just as slow. takes forever to start the programs, booting is slow. but the programs are working ok once they start running. everything worked fine in tiger though. otherwise i'm having decent hardware to. gigabyte 965p-ds4 c2d 4300 @ 2,9GHz x1950xt 2GB memory a bunch of fairly new disks btw i'm running my 'flat' release
  3. slow perfomance

    anyone managed to get a decent perfomance in leopard. its way to slow for me. i think its about the disk performance.
  4. well. The thing is that i dd'd the first 15,5G of the 15G leopard image. It has the mbr & the end (which is RAW) of that partiton in it as well. But i guess no, its not necessary to have a separate hard disk as long as you keep the other partitions more then say 16-17G away from the beginning of that drive. But you still have to use the dd "if=leopard-x86-flat-img of=\\?\Device\HarddiskX\Partition0" command to get it bootable as far as i know. I don't really know what happens if you try to write such an image to a single partition. But i do know that when you write over the mbr it will be troublesome to boot in to windows/linux from that drive.
  5. the demonoid image is reported to be working on at least one Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 (rev 2) rig http://forum.osx86scene.com/viewtopic.php?...a&start=330
  6. anyone managed to get the network to work under leopard?
