  1. Take a look at KVM or Xen. Google searches seem to indicate that some people have success run osx as a guest os.
  2. I have this motherboard and I just reinstalled 10.5.6 from the retail cd; it works fine. I used the instructions from this sticky. Then I updated to 10.5.7 and it works fine again. I basically followed these instructions.
  3. It doesn't matter if Apple makes money of a sale of Leopard; it's their own fault if they can't turn a profit off the sale. Profit is the sellers responsibility; not the buyer's. And it doesn't make sense that Apple can't profit off the sale of Leopard without a Mac purchase. If Apple does not expect to make money off individual sales of Leopard, then why sell it? And profit has nothing to do with piracy. Although you may be able to get around the piracy issues if you buy Leopard and only download the patches. But I'm not a lawyer so I don't know if patches count as "derivative works."
  4. Thanks for the link. Turns out the problem was the device id. Since the card originally worked on a ppc mac without any changes I assumed that it would be the same on an intel mac. I assumed wrong and Apple must have dropped it from the official supported list because there's no real intel mac shipping with a wifi card that has the device id.
  5. I tried a couple other pci cards and finally found a usb/firewire combo card that works. There's still no pci cards listed; both the usb and firewire show up as integrated. I guess I'll figure out why the wireless card doesn't work (it has a broadcom chipset so there's got to be a way to make it work). Thanks for the help.
  6. One of the cards works in mac os x; I've used it in a g3 before. But all pci cards should show up in system profiler even if there's no drivers for them.
  7. I installed mac ox 10.4.9 uphuck on an ECS 945GCT-M motherboard. Everything seems to work fine (video, audio, usb, and ide works but haven't tried sata or ethernet) except for pci cards. I've installed two pci wireless cards but neither show in the pci section under system profiler. I know the cards work because I verified by installing windows on the same machine. Has anyone else had any luck with this motherboard?
