  1. Added to eBay: Prototype Mac Pro Logic Board & Memory Risers.
  2. I'm asking $550 + shipping. If it doesn't sell for awhile longer, I will put it on eBay.
  3. Yep, it is still for sale, same with the memory risers.
  4. Yes, the logic board is still available.
  5. These prototype boards were surplus in huge 60lb steel cases, without anything being properly secured. This is the best example of one of these unique boards you will ever find. The only issues (very minimal cosmetic issues) that keep this board from being in perfect condition are, as you can see from the pictures, a missing a PCI slot arm and there is a small dent on the south bridge heatsink. This board is in great condition.
  6. I am selling a fully working Mac Pro Prototype Logic Board and matching Prototype Memory Risers . I haven't been using the system they were running in enough and I figured it would be best to sell. It runs Snow Leopard perfectly, just as any other Mac Pro would. I paid $800 for the board and the risers, PM me an offer if you're interested. Ask if you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer.

  7. It has been on HD Audio Non-Vista, but I disabled Audio and still get the same results.....well not exactly, it didn't make it to ethernet this time......
  8. BSD root: disk 2s3, Major 14, Minor 9 localhost mDNSResponder[48]: getHelperPort: cannot contact helper Aug 8 04:58:49 localhost Kextd[47]: root filesystem is read-only kernel link data generation Aug 8 04:58:50 localhost com.apple.launched[1] (com.apple.SystemStarter): Failed to count the number of files in "/System/Library/StartupItems": No such file or directory AppleHDAController:: Start ERROR no layout-id found AppleHDA.kext failed to load: Unable to locate 'layout-id' property
  9. Yes, it gets me to a prompt. I insert the Leopard DVD, wait for the DVD drive to stop activity. Hit [Enter], it then asks if I want to boot from first hard drive (80), second hard (81) or hexadecimal boot device (fe). I just hit [Enter] and then a prompt comes up for the Leopard DVD, I either hit [F8] for more options and then enter -v for verbose or just [Enter]. The darwin loader loads the disc, the disc starts spinning and brings up the white apple screen if I did not choose verbose. It will load for almost two minutes before getting the gray reset screen.
  10. I have tried everything and nothing works! I've disconnected my hard drives from the EZ RAID ports and disconnected my other hard drive.....but get the same results for both. Unplugged all usb devices, including the Wi-fi antenna. I've changed the SATA port of the DVD drive and have tried numerous Boot-132 discs (I even made my own). Changed BIOS versions multiple times and messed around in the BIOS for hours and haven't made any progress.....I even booted up Kalyway 10.5.1, just to see if that would work, thankfully it did. I did what you told me and created an MSDOS partition in FAT32 using 'Parted Magic' on my Windows hard drive, but still get the same errors...... Ah, this is driving me mad.....
  11. Yes I get the same errors and I'm using a genuine 10.5.1 DVD. I have used an ISO of my genuine DVD to install via Brazilian and my current Leopard installation can see and read the DVD as a Leopard installation disc. My DVD reader is not plugged into the jmicron or 'EZ-RAID' SATA ports. But I have two hard drives (my current leopard installation) in both the 'EZ-RAID' SATA ports running in hardware RAID. I have tried booting the from the 10.5.1 DVD with the setting "EZ_Raid Mode change" enabled, but still get the same results...... Do the 'EZ-RAID' SATA ports cause problems when booting with boot-132? They worked fine with other distros.
  12. Thank you, it worked! I now have ASUS EZ Flash 2 back. +2 rep But I re-entered all of the correct BIOS settings again in order to boot the leopard retail disc and it still gets the gray screen....................
  13. Because there is in no possible way I can find the "ASUS EZ Flash 2" tool, I just decided to use AFUDOS and flashed the ROM that Derty gave me. That bumped my BIOS version up to 2801 and I thought that would solve my problem of getting the gray screen when booting from retail leopard, well it didn't. Some things that caught my eye when in -v: localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.systemstarter) : Failed to count the number of files in "/System/Library/StartupItems" : No such file or directory AppleHDA.kext failed to load : Unable to locate 'layout-id' AppleHDAController :: Start ERROR no layout-id found My P5W DH Deluxe BIOS Settings (Version 2801) Main IDE Configuration Configure SATA As [AHCI] ALPE and ASP [Disabled] Advanced CPU Configuration Modify Ratio Support [Disabled] Microcode Updation [Enabled] Max CPUID Value Limit: [Disabled] Execute Disable Function [Enabled] Enhanced C1 Control [Auto] Virtualization Technology [Enabled] Intel ® SpeedStep tech.

  14. Thanks for the reply Derty, but I'm still having the same problem. When you go into your BIOS on the P5W DH Deluxe and go to the Tools menu is the Asus EZ Flash there? Mine just looks like this (with or without a USB stick formatted as FAT32 with the P5WDH.ROM on root): ______________________________ •Asus Music Alarm (Large Gap) •ASUS O.C. Profile _______________________________ It's not that the EZ Flash cannot read the ROM, I cannot even get to the EZ Flash tool. I have reset all settings to default and still get the same results....
  15. I have been trying to update my BIOS from 2602 to 2704 in order to install via the Boot 132 method, but I cannot find the EZ Flash 2 utility. I have a USB pen drive formatted as FAT32 with just the 2704 ROM on it. The EZ flash utility is not located under the Tools menu in the BIOS (with or without the pen drive) and when I press <Alt> + <F2> (supposedly and alternative way) it just boots into my primary boot disc. I have used the utility to do a previous update, but now its nowhere to be found. Can anyone help?
