  1. I would like to find a retail-install solution (e.g. using Boot-132) followed by setting up Chameleon and the /Extras folder. This guide involves using iAtkos, not retail, and mucking with the System directory. Not the method of choice. topmanhugo - Thanks! I used your Boot132 CD to get through the install phase. But, I wasn't able to get chameleon to work. It gets stuck on a black screen after the grey apple. Were you able to get Chameleon going? Also, topmanhugo, I still have to keep the machine on cpu cores = 1 and hyper threading disabled. Were you able to get beyond that making the changes to the dsts.ami file, as this guide indicates? Finally, I'm toying with the idea of flashing the motherboard so that it has standard Gigabyte (GA-EX58-UD5?) BIOS - enabling more overclocking options. If I did that, would I be able to follow the guide of that motherboard? Dumb idea? Thanks!
  2. Does this official support for nVidia cards mean good things for hackintosh drivers down the road? I still can't get dual monitors to work on GeForce 9800's 8600's.
  3. I'm also eagerly waiting for the new Chameleon, and am interested in its status. Not nagging - just voicing my appreciation / enthusiasm .
  4. This + Boot-132 / Monky bootloader? It costs $13.40 and I think gets around problem with usb flash drives. I know there has already been a lot of talk about using Monky's solution ala boot-132 (and chameleon project) and doing it as a separate partition on a harddrive... But at the end of the day it will still be "hacky" and scare people away. On the other hand, if one creates a disk image to to write to a mini sata drive, you can package it as a simple soluition the same way EFIX is.
