  1. How about ATI CrossFire Xpress 3200 (RD580)

    I'm using an A8R32-MVP Deluxe (with the 580X) with Tubgirl's 10.4.10 release to post this right now, in fact, so the northbridge is supported. Your problem may be that we have different southbridges; I have some ULi southbridge and you have the ATI SB600, and I'm not sure if yours is supported. My friend has the M2R32-MVP and I think he has plans on installing the release I'm using on his board - if he gets anywhere I'll let you know. You may also want to try a 10.4.11 or a 10.5 release; newer releases tend to have better driver support than older ones, in my experience. JaS's 10.4.7 and 10.4.8 releases didn't work for me.
  2. OSX on SATA dvd drive?

    It's probably not the DVD drive's fault, as far as I know - my LG SATA drive works perfectly. However, I'm using 10.4.10 and an ATi 580X Crossfire-based board. If you have a secondary SATA controller on your board (there'll be a single SATA port up above the slots, away from the other 4 or 6) move the drive to that. If I remember correctly the nForce 5 chipsets aren't particularly well-supported. You may even want to use the Tubgirl 10.4.10 release, if that's an option; that solved many of the problems I was having with the JaS 10.4.8 release.
  3. Presario V5000 ?

    I have a V5000 like yours, and I'm using the Tubgirl 10.4.10 AMD-only DVD. The only two things that don't work are QE/CI (although the resolution can be changed) and audio recording. Unfortunately, outside of that I can't help you - I don't remember where anything I downloaded was, although I do know I found it all here at this forum. There wasn't much that I had to do outside of use that particular DVD, though - that was the important part. Search the forums for where it (hopefully) can be found. Good luck.
