  1. USB 3.0 OSX Support By Caldigit

    If your Mobo has any VLI VL810 Hubs attached to the USB3 controller you will have undesired effects with the Lacie PXCHD.Kext I have a GA-P67A-UD7-B3 with 2x NEC Chips and 2x VL810 Chips and USB3 is no go for me. It seems to be a problem with the hubs.
  2. Nobody seems to have quite gotten any guides right for this board I have a i72600K and here is what I have done for a stable install m. Run Bios utility Set all IDE ports to AHCI, HPET to 64Bit, CPU multiplier to 32x, Enable TurboBoost and set it to your desired overclock level (mines 46, I have an aftermarket cooler) Mem multiplier to whatever freq yours runs at. 1.

  3. P67A-UD7 - i7 2600 Build

    I've got the same setup as you. So far I can only get it to boot up with one stick of Ram (4GB) and the rest of the hardware the same as you. I wish I had time to play around with the DSDT, Fake SMC, etc. My Bluetooth dongle works though, it's a D-link one.
  4. Spent a couple of hours in the shed with anangle grinder, my old PC and my old, old G5. (just bought an 27" imac ). Had to butcher the back connection panel a tad but i'll make a surround for it when i get a chance. The system consists of an Gigabyte GA-EX38-DS5, Core 2 Quad 6700, 8 GB Kingston Hyper x DDR2 1066, Leadtek 8800GT, 3 x 500GB 7200RPM HDD's running Raid 0 with OSX 10.6.2 vanilla installed on the raid and 2 x 22" asus monitors. It was a bit of a pain getting the DSDT patched correctly but all in all its a pretty nice Hack. runs very well at about 40C and never kernel panics.
  5. I was on a slight budget and still managed to build a system that performs better than most. It consists of; (parts are more than 18 months old now) Gigabyte X38-DS5 mobo Intel Core 2 Quad 6700 overclocked @ 3.0Ghz 8 Gb Kingston HyperX DDR2 1066 3x Seagate 7200 500GB Drives Running software RAID (osx) 2x WD 1TB 7200 Drives Running software RAID (media) Leadtek 8800GT 1GB with 2 x Asus 22" DVI monitors Bought a Bluetooth dongle for $5 and bought an apple wireless KB Xbench score is 220.5 (i'm happy with that)
  6. When installing OSX, hit the customize button, choose your video card and any other hardware your sure you have. SMBIOS (667), Geforece Go, AHCI, etc, etc. If all else fails, try iDeneb 1.4, or my personal choise is to install with the retail DVD.
  7. Success! (10.5.6, M2N32-SLI Deluxe, 9800GT)

    Hey guys, just thought i'd throw my 2 cents worth.. I have to agree with Discordant about how good insanely mac forums have been on my way to success with 10.5.6.. I've got a Gigabyte X38 DS5 with Intel Core 2 Quad 2.66 GHz with 4G OCZ Ram and 8800GT 512 MB I used a retail install and then patched with voodoo kernel and used EFI for graphics. Once i knew what i was doing there was minimal messing around with the final install Everything works perfectly to the point where i'm confident enough to pull out the temporary iDeneb drive i used throughout install. I'll dot point the basic steps, All other info u need is all over this forum. 1. Install ideneb on a temorary HDD and boot up from it 2. open disk utility and format your main OSX disk. 3. copy the OSX Install Disk image to your ideneb desktop. 4. show all files and folders on your ideneb installation. sudo -s defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles true 5. Find the installation packages folder on the OSX install image and open OSINSTALL.MPKG 6. Install to the OSX drive 7. my version was 10.5.4 so i downloaded the 10.5.5 combo update and installed it. 8. run post-patch 9. Install EFI/Chameleon Bootloader and reboot. 10. Check everything to see if it works. install EFI strings etc. then reboot again tho check. 11. Reboot to ideneb once your system works. 12. download 10.5.6 combo update and install on OSX 13. Post patch with 10.5.6 kext pack. 14. reinstall EFI/Chameleon. Reboot 15. Install voodoo kernel and ALC 889A kexts and you should be running smoothly (after voodoo kernel there is a smal patch to do that fixes dmg errors) Kext helper and OSX86 Tools are very useful and so is having the second drive with a basic packaged install eg. ideneb, kalyway etc.
