  1. Update worked fine for me on a P5Q Deluxe, Ethernet and everything working on a vanilla install through Software Update. Just experiencing frequent KP under heavy CPU load (apparently NOT hardware-related, before anyone asks) that I am trying to pinpoint right now
  2. AppleVIAATA.kext in Extra/Extensions (with chameleon) works for me. There is a 64-bit version lying around. It is needed because the BIOS shows the array as an IDE disk to the operating system. My system partition(OS X 10.6.1) is on the driveXpert array, no problem there. However, I have to boot from a boot partition on a USB device as chameleon gives me an error (spews a few lines of text garbage after loading boot0, then hangs) if it is installed on the driveXpert array drive (GPT-formatted) In short, on driveXpert, access: yes, system: yes, boot:no. Any solution would be welcome. Are there any issues for chameleon to boot from an IDE drive/device?
  3. I have leopard running FROM the 2-disk array attached to the DriveXpert controller. I seem to remember reading at the time of setting up this install that the DriveXpert array appears as an IDE (ie, non-SATA) drive to the operating system. That's why you need some kind of driver to be able to see it. I think AppleVIAATA.kext might be it, but I am not sure.
  4. P5Q & 10.6.1 Retail

    Thank you for the guide and all the help However, for a reason that I cannot understand, probably some bios option, both BootCDs* mentioned in this thread will not start the computer and fail with a memory allocation error code : 0xdeadbeef My setup : Asus P5Q Deluxe, ATI Radeon HD 3450, 4GB DDR2, perfectly working leopard install, boot-132 from USB stick Any hint appreciated *by quaza and vovockav SOLVED : the problem was apparently caused by an extra USB disk attached to the computer. Removing that solved the issue.
  5. ASUS P5Q Pro eSATA Sil5723

    Hi there, I have 10.5.6 installed on a pair of 500 Gb SATA drives connected to Sil5723 using Robert_xes's method. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=144020 Otherwise, the Raid pair is picked up no problem by another install I have. Why do you need drivers (if you still do)? That's the logic behind Drive Xpert : no special OS drivers
