    [Guide] Intel D101GGC Motherboard + P4

    To answer both JulioM and Damian... To fix that I had to burn 10.4.5 on the DVDRW at the lowest speed setting, it was a problem with the burn. Also make sure that the HDD and DVD drive are both set as master on different IDE busses and make sure nothing else is plugged into them. Dont trust cable select as it can still screw things up. It could be the SATA drive thats causing it too. Unless you know that something will work in OS X, remove or disable it until you get to the bare setup until you get everything installed, it makes it quite a bit easier. Always install using IDE and onboard video with this board first. Then try to look at other posts for people with the same hardware and see how they got the addons to work.. DO NOT USE PS2!!! It wont work. Also dont forget to disable Legacy USB support. This makes it a pain in the ass if you do a dual boot because you need PS2 to control the boot screen from windows but then if you leave the PS2 keyboard or mouse installed it wont work and your OS X will crash.

    [Guide] Intel D101GGC Motherboard + P4

    np, i just bought this board from a friend without knowing anything about it except that it would support a pentium D in the future if I wanted to upgrade. There was no information on here about this board a month ago when I started but since I built this computer to run OS X 90% of the time I figured I slap this together for other people. Plus I've been on a mac since I was 5 and on OS X since the public beta when it became my primary OS. I know enough about it to make this a bit easier so if you have any other questions or if your new to the OS just ask. My x300SE HM video card just shipped, it was 30.99 after shipping from newegg heres a link to it. From what I have seen on here this card is the lowest cost one we can get to have CI and QE working. I gave up on our onboard video. I get this card in the mail on the 11th at the latest so I'll update about it as soon as I get it (or within 10 mins since im going to put it in right away)

    X700 and other PCIE ATI Radeon finally work

    What does your lan card or wireless have to do with graphics on an ATI card? Dont just post in random forums.
  7. My setup 2.66GHz P4 506 w/ SSE3, Intel D101GGC motherboard w/ ATI x200 chipset, 512MB of RAM with 2 IDE HDs on IDE channel 0 with OS X and XP installed on master drive (i have not tried serial ata) On IDE channel 1 I have a Sony DVD+-R/RW and high speed CD burner (I think its a panasonic, I'll check later), genaric NEC chipset firewire PCI card, genaric Ali chipset PCI USB 2.0 card, Orange Micro USB to bluetooth adapter. What works USB 2.0, onboard ethernet, IDE, both the genaric PCI USB 2.0 and Firewire card work, genaric USB bluetooth What doesn't work Onboard sound, onboard video card does not support QE or CI, OpenGL is very slow, cannot play games What I have not tested Serial ATA Burning the disk All iso files for osx must be burned in nero or other windows burning program and will not work properly if burned in OS X using Toast. 10.4.3 install disk showed a kernel panic when burned in Toast but not with Nero. 10.4.4/10.4.5 would install and then show an error saying "Please try installing again" at the end when burned with Toast, but worked like a charm when burned in Nero 6. Also I burned the images onto a DVD+RW at 2.4x This had worked for others and I found that it made the disks work without any problems. USB The first problem I ran into was after booting up from the 10.4.4/10.4.5 ISO was it would not boot up with anything PS2 installed. So I tried USB only but then the mouse and keyboard would not work. After some messing around I just had to disable legacy USB in the BIOS. This got me to through the install screens and my keyboard and mouse worked without any problems. ATA drivers, "waiting for root device" this is a MUST Using the instructions here, ATI ATA drivers, you will need to install these drivers before you restart the computer after the original install or you may get a "waiting for root device" error. It also will speed up your disk access and write times quite a bit. Repair Permissions If you change any system files in the Extensions folder you MUST repair the permissions before you reboot. I found it better to manually do this in terminal using the following commands: su chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/ If I use disk utility to repair permissions it sometimes would break the onboard ethernet. Using terminal is the only way to make sure this gets done right. Sound I used a genaric USB sound card that I found on ebay for $9 after shipping. It did not work with the 10.4.5 AppleUSBAudio.kext but if you replace it with the one from 10.4.3 it should work like a charm. Video Koverg patch does not work, you will need a PCIe graphics card at this point to get QE and CI to work. I just got this graphics card in the mail. With unmodified ati9700 kexts it works right out of the box with CI and QE. Using the Callisto frame buffer, here, most of the screen artifacts are gone, but I still have mouse issues. But I can play SimCity 4 so im happy now.

    X700 and other PCIE ATI Radeon finally work

    Does not work with ATI xpress 200 chipset 5a61 Display turns to garbage once applied. Fresh install of 10.4.5 on intel D101GGC motherboard However apple system profiler shows card as being on PCI bus but intels website says it should be on PCIe for this motherboard. Could this be the problem?

    got the onboard ethernet to work again, had to manually repair permissions to the extensions folder using: su chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/

    The $9 after shipping USB sound card is working now. It did not work with the 10.4.5 AppleUSBAudio.kext so replaced that with the one from 10.4.3 and it works like a charm. I also added a USB Bluetooth adapter that works great without any changes. Its an Orange Micro "Orange 2 USB adapter" Genaric $12 PCI Firewire card also working without any modifications. It is an NEC chipset. Final issue remaining is getting OpenGL on the ATI x200 graphics chipset. The Koverg patch does not work. Im going to mess around with the kext files for a little while then if I cannot get it working Im going to look into purchasing the $49 ATI X300 PCIe card from newegg. Wireless networking would also be nice but is not really needed in my setup.
  12. check your BIOS settings, some have a seperate option for usb 2.0

    I connected a CD-R drive as slave on the same IDE channel (channel 1) as my Sony DVD+-RW and also added a HFS+ 250GB HD from a G4 I had laying around as slave on the same channel as my boot drive (channel 0). This gave me " waiting for root device " Using the instructions here ATI ATA drivers and was able to get my comp back up and running with very little trouble. However somehow this kext broke my onboard ethernet and I had to add a Intel 100 Pro card I found laying around in a 8 year old eMachine. It worked right away. Last two remaining issues is lack of video drivers for the ATI x200 (no video acceleration, openGL not working worth anything) and onboard sound with the Realtek ALC861. I just ordered a genaric USB sound card from Ebay for less then $10 after shipping and if it works I'll post pics and other information for reference.

    ATI IXP ATA Driver repost

    Thanks a lot for the update kext! works like a charm, no more waiting for root device with my D101GGC mobo, however it killed my Realtek ethernet which I wouldnt think should happen. If it were not for that it would be perfect! System loads MUCH faster now, maybe i can break a 70 in xbench now ;-)

    I figured out my main issue. All iso files for osx must be burned in nero or other windows burning program and will not work properly if burned in OS X using Toast. Also I burned the images for 10.4.3 and 10.4.4/10.4.5 onto a DVD+RW at 2.4x and both started right up and installed with no problems. 10.4.3 install disk showed a kernel panic when burned in Toast but not with Nero. 10.4.4/10.4.5 would install and then show an error saying "Please try installing again" at the end when burned with Toast, but worked like a charm when burned in Nero 6. Both the 10.4.3 and 10.4.4/10.4.5 images then installed and work great on my D101ggc (ethernet works, sound out does not), ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Chipset (cannot change resolution, no CI or QE support, OpenGL also not working. Cannot play games due to no kext loaded), 2.66GHz P4 506 w/ SSE3, 512MB of RAM with IDE HD (i have not tried serial ata) and Sony DVD+-R/RW.
