  1. Any Success on an Asus P5B?

    Hey guys. I was able to get Snow Leopard 10.6.2 running on my Asus P5B deluxe using a retail 10.6 10A32 disc to install. I have a GeForce 7300 GS video card and I have quartz rotation and dual monitors working. Sound works, front and back outputs. Sleep also works For the most part, everything is vanilla, only had to modify two kexts. First, download the latest version of Empire EFI - I used 1.085 Burn the Empire EFI disc and follow the instructions on the website for how to install Snow Leopard using a retail disc. Once you get Snow leopard installed, use Kext Utility to install the IONetworkingFamily.kext that I attached. This is for the Yukon 88E8056 ethernet and will have your ethernet running. After installing the kext: Restart and use the Empire EFI to boot Snow Leopard. Once you're booted into Snow Leopard, you should have working ethernet. Do not mess with any other kexts, don't touch anything after you get the ethernet working. Now, update to 10.6.2 Once you update and reboot, use the Empire EFI disc to boot into SL. You should be updated to 10.6.2 and also ethernet should work by now. Open the Empire EFI disc: Next run the myHack 1.0 RC4.1 - customize the install (of course) Select ONLY: com.apple.Boot.plist Graphics Enabler (depending on your gfx card, I have a GeForce 7300GS so this worked for me) NullCPUPowerManagement.kext OpenHaltRestart.kext PlatformUUID.kext Do NOT select the SleepEnabler.kext - you will fix sleep later After install, use the DSDT Patcher GUI with default settings to apply the patched DSDT to the root of your SL drive. Restart - configure the bios to boot from the SL hard drive, and you should be able to boot Snow Leopard from the chameleon EFI partition that myHack installed. Once you boot into SL, download the 64bit 10.6.2 VoodooHDA.kext Install it using KextHelper by dragging and dropping onto the app icon. This will install into /System/Library/Extensions by default - but you know that already. Next download SleepEnabler.kext for 10.6.2 from Netkas website or search this website for it. Drag and drop the kext into /Extra/Extensions - you will have to authenticate the move. Run kext helper which will repair permissions on the /Extra/Extensions and rebuild the Extensions.mkext file. Restart, and you should have working sound and you should also be able to sleep (and your Hackintosh should be able to sleep as well) Hope this helps I've been running super stable, overclocked to 3.33 ghz even. I have installed and am running Logic 9.1 64 bit flawlessly. Have updated all apps through mac. Best and painless method I have ever tried to get a hackintosh install running on these components. I spent countless hours kicking and screaming over trying to get QE running and sound to work when I installed 10.5.6 This was too easy - got it done in about an hour. Cheers to all that have helped me in the past, hopefully this helps someone. Marvell_Yukon_88E8056_Snow106.dmg
