  1. Hi blackosx, thanks for your guide, it was very clear. And I've achieved a perfect install!
  2. Gigabyte EP45-DS3LR OC great so far

    Hi! In terms of temperature I am in the early 60's. My fan is not on high RPM so it gets there quickly. Maybe that's hot but the system is stable so far. I've tried prime tests, Intel Burn Test (the most vicious one), XBench, GeekBench, Maxwell Render, 3DMark, ..., I am not listing my results here, because all the test results are similar to those already posted, comparing with similar Hackintoshes, Mac Pros, iMacs, etc.
  3. Happy to report that iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 is working great with my board, and I managed to OC my Q8200 to 3.0GHz This has been my stable work/gaming machine for over a month and the OC'ed BIOS settings work great in XP and Leopard. I also ran benchmarks in Leopard and XP to confirm the performance gains are real.
  4. For me, with iATKOS I remembered it did not even finish installation. I am running all SATA drives and have PATA disabled, AHCI enabled. Installing on PATA is probably harder. My iDeneb install is very stable and is my everyday computer.
  5. I also strugged with iATKOS until I installed iDeneb. See my hardware config in my sig and it's very similar to yours, hope it helps.
  6. Support for the nVidia 9800GT

    Thanks. I installed iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 and my 9800GT worked OOB.
  7. iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 Released!

    I installed iDeneb v1.3 on 2 PCs with no problems whatsoever. I have tried many distros before without success. Thanks!
  8. I have the same situation. I unplugged my network cable and rebooted and got past this step.
  9. Thanks for your post. I have similar interest like yours to build a stable, production-ready DAW. Logic Pro 8 is running fine on my machine so far! I am using iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 atm. I didn't succeed with retail install following another guide, I think I missed the step of ejecting the retail partition before applying EFI/Chameleon. See my hardware list below.
  10. Success! iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5

    This is incredible! After trying so many distros and following retail tutorials, I got iDeneb to work! The only fix I needed to apply was ICH10R fix. My GeForce 9800GT 512MB worked OOB! See my sig for hardware config.
  11. Support for the nVidia 9800GT

    Hi, I just puchased components for a new OSX build. Seems I've overlooked the fact that support for 9800GT is limited. Can you share with me exactly the steps to get 9800GT working? I need help with iATKOS install. I've installed Leo4All 10.5.2 with sound and network but no graphics. I'd very much like to get graphics to work. Please check my sig for my config. Thanks. Regards
  12. I've been searching the forums and don't find much info for Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3LR... I found lots of support information on similar mobos. Are the similarities/differences relevant for OSX installation? GA-EP45-DS3L (without RAID) GA-EP45-DS3R (different sound chipset) GA-EP45-UD3P Regards
  13. Hi, I am following your guide and it makes a lot of sense to me. I am however stuck at rebooting into new partition with -x option. I am using GA-EP45-DS3LR. I know that it has ICH10R instead of ICH10. Do you think it makes a difference? Regards, Switcher007
