  1. I've got a ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo and modded the BIOS to detect all four cores on my Q9550. I installed iDeneb 1.4 and upgraded Leopard to 10.5.8. With NVKush installed I seem to get full acceleration with the screensavers and the genie affect but system profiler detects that my VRAM is 256mb instead of my EVGA 9800GT's 512MB. Also insanelymac.com seems to lag a little bit when I scroll up or down so I'm slightly under the impression that even though QE is supported I'm not getting full 2D/3D acceleration. Can anyone help me figure out the best way to setup my video card?


    I attached a screenshot of system profiler.


  2. I've read everything on here but I am at a dead end. I have a single hard drive in my system with no OS on it and its plugged into the red ICH10R port. When I boot the iDeneb 1.4 install disk and select the disk utility, it doesn't detect the disk. I have AHCI enabled as well. Any ideas?


    Also one more thing. System Profiler says that I have 0 processors and 1 core. I'm running a Q9550 and have flashed the BIOS on my P5Q Pro Turbo to a modded BIOS.


    Can anyone give me some help?


    Thanks! ;)

  3. Thanks a lot! It works like a charm :)

    Got all the way to the apple-logo this time! Alltough, I couldn't reach in to the installer for some reason.

    I should look up some boot commands i guess.


    Thanks again!



    Did you mod the BIOS for the P5Q Pro Turbo? If so can you please post it!

  4. Well, i've been searching through Google and the Forums for a couple weeks now. I am about to give up! I purchased an "ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo" and read that the P5Q's need a BIOS update for all four cores to work properly. The problem is, the only modded BIOS I can find are for the P5Q Pro, or P5Q Turbo, but no P5Q Pro Turbo BIOS. Does anybody have a working modded BIOS for the latest BIOS on the P5Q Pro Turbo? :D

  5. Ok. I installed the driver on iDeneb 1.3 (Leopard 10.5.5) and under audio settings it shows that I have a device installed and the system sounds are no longer gray. The thing is, I plugged my speakers into Line Out but I did not hear any sound for iTunes or any other app. I selected Line Out as the output but this did not resolve the problem. I tried plugging headphones in instead but I had the same result.


    Anyone have any thoughts?

  6. I reinstalled the OS. I did not select a kernel. The only option I added was the 2600xt PCIE. No sound or anything. I'm under the assumption that this is the cause as it still booted to the blue screen with the mouse in the upper left hand corner again. I can move the mouse but a copy of the mouse cursor remains in the default spot.


    I'm going to reinstall with zero options selected to see if that fixes the problem. If it does, I will be posting in the HW section for my video card.

  7. Hello,


    I am very new to OSX and the x86 project in general. I was able to install and boot OSX on the following setup without any errors first try:



    * Core 2 Duo E7200

    * 4GB OCZ 1066 DDR2

    * ATI 2600XT 512MB


    Almost everything worked out of the box. Video, Lan, DVD Drive. The only thing that does not work is my on board sound which I am researching on different threads. But that's not my problem....



    My first question is:

    Every time the system boots, I have to add the -x boot flag or it will just sit at a screen with my mouse in the upper left hand corner and never prompts me to log on. I know I can add this as a default boot option after palying around with the OS, but I don't even know what -x does. Why do I have to type -x and does it affect the functionality of my system? Also, Is it possible to change the kernel or something to allow it to boot without the flag?



    My second question:

    On iDeneb 1.3, I did not have the option to install the vanilla kernel in the custom options at install. Just 9.5.x patched by someone. Where can I obtain the most recent vanilla kernel? Ive ran a search but had no luck.
