  1. 10.6.6 released

    Update went smooth on my P5Q Pro Turbo board. Only thing that does not work anymore is sleep, which I'm sure a 10.6.6 SleepEnabler.kext will resolve once released
  2. EVGA GeForce 9500GT 1GB TV Out on SL?

    QE/CI works, I was following the guide @ http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=213336, which installs the myHackInstaller package to enable the card amongst other things. I haven't tested dual monitors but I have used both of the DVI ports and they do work, I don't see why dual monitors would not work. Good luck!
  3. Thank you for this guide! I had all but given up on running SL on my machine, but on a whim decided to give it a crack yesterday and stumbled upon this guide. I now have a 100% fully working Mac on my P5Q Pro Turbo board!
  4. EVGA GeForce 9500GT 1GB TV Out on SL?

    Update: I updated to 10.6.5 and purchased a DVI>HDMI adapter for about $10 and now have full 1920×1080, 1080p display.
  5. Hey all, I'm currently running a fresh install of Retail SL 10.6 on an Asus P5Q Pro Turbo. I do intend to update to the newest ver of SL but I wanted to get everything working first. The card I currently have, EVGA GeForce 9500GT 1GB, has a TV out option which I would like to use on my LCD TV. Currently, the card works out of the box and I can get the TV out to work by way of a DVI>VGA adaptor which then goes into the back on the TV, however, I cannot get very high resolutions, 1280x960 max....something to that extent, I cannot remember. When I try to change the resolution, the screen just goes blank then about 15 seconds, then returns to my original resolution. I'm thinking it is the refresh rate or VSYNC setting which is not allowing it to display on the TV correctly but I'm not sure how to check/correct this. Has anyone got the TV out function of this card fully working? If so, how? What version of SL were you using? What kexts, guide, links etc... I don't mind having to use the DVI>VGA option but if I can get a higher resolution. I would prefer to use the S-Video out option on the card to connect that to the composite connections on the back of the TV. Please help! Thanks
  6. P5Q Pro Turbo anyone?

    Brining back this thread from the dead...anyone have any suggestions?
  7. Anyone successfully installed SL on a P5Q Pro Turbo board?
  8. So I have the P5Q Pro Turbo board and am trying to get SL running. I have tried a few how-to's found on this site but I can't seem to get it running. Has anyone out there successfully installed SL on this board? If so, how did you get it working? Using a custom Boot 132 CD or....? What kext's? etc... I've been able to install 10.5.x previously on this board but am struggling with SL! I do have my BIOS flashed with as per this post for the DSDT patch. ANY help is greatly appreciated!
  9. Have any of these bios's been patched? I haven't seen any mention of anything
  10. P5Q PRO Turbo - modded bios?

    Only problem is you can't get both cores working without a modded bios. I'm trying to modify one myself but am having some problems :\ Anyone else have success with this board?
  11. How did you create the DSDT.AML patch?
  12. Looking to get a working BIOS for the Asus P5Q PRO TURBO. I'm attempting to preform a retail install and I get stuck at this message: "using 10485 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers" I can't recall if this was the EXACT error message I have managed to get iAtkos 10.5.5 installed on my machine, but have not been able to actually get the OS to boot as it also gets stuck at the message above.

  13. OSX86 on Intel P45 chipset?

    Has anybody attempted/made a correct BIOS file for the Asus P5Q PRO TURBO boards yet? I can't seem to find any information about this board. I'm attempting to preform a retail install.
  14. Anyone have success installing the Retail version with an Asus P5Q PRO TURBO board? What did you do exactly?
  15. Hey all, Got a question here that I can't seem to figure out. If you see the image below, I have managed to change the default hard drive icon for OSX by selecting my new icon and then right clicking on the Mac drive/Get Info and then pasting the new icon, however, I cannot change the icon for the Windows based hard drive using the same method. I've tried doing so using Candybar but it would not even see the Windows drive.... anyone have any ideas? Should note, I boot OSX from an external USB drive and the Windows drive is physically inside my machine as the default hard drive. EDIT: Found a solution, installing NTFS-3G let me change it, should have thought of that
