    I had updated to the latest possible update and everything runs smooth. All running 64bit, 8 cores without a single problem. I have sometimes KP during bootup due mainly to the voodoohda, but a couple restart fixed the problem. But once you're in, you can't tell if it's a real Mac Pro or not, as even the sleep works and wakes up on a click of the magic mouse. Sweet!

    I suggest you get an SAS card and it will solve your problem...i've had that problem before, but when i installed the SAS card, i was able to install Lion without a single glitch, much like installing from a real Mac Pro...had updated to 10.7.5 and still working perfect.

    @Crackpot...i managed to update to 10.7 by using a SAS Adapter LSI Logic 3041E...best thing above all, i can do a clean install without a glitch. I am now running 10.7.4 on my HP Z600 and never had a single KP since i installed it...Just don't use the Hardware RAID of the adapter as this will not show up in the Installation...If by chance you will update to ML, please give us a heads up as your guide helped a lot...

    @crackpot Thank you for the very informative guide. However, I just skipped the Installation part and installed via the USB Drive of my MB Pro, which somehow removed the part of buying a PCI SATA and PS2 KB/Mouse. Also, i deleted the AppleHPET.kext on the USB drive after the installation so that i can start using the USB KB/Mouse. Based on this procedure, you can then use the latest eye-Boot to boot your new installation. Once all the updating is completed, i used SuperDuper to copy my USB OSX to my HDD and run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Saved me time on removing and reinserting components. Just a question...had you made your switch to Lion?
