  1. SL on ASUS P5K Pro [Success]

    ok. Thanks. I have managed to solve the networking issue and reinstall the ionetworkingfamily.kext. Back again in 10.5.8. I have officially given up the 7th time.. No go for me for SL. I know the ASUS family of mobos is excellent for osx but i find it too much a hassle. Maybe i am not worthy I Have decided to leave it as is since this is my working machine so i will save a "little" and buy myself an imac when time comes.... Over the years and as a long time switcher I found great appreciation for mac hardware and systems. I have decent knowledge of linux,beos and other winx86 systems but this is exactly the reason i swiched full time to the mac platform. Thanks Detrich for trying to help me. This community is so great that i always want to come and read interesting stuff and hacks.... hope i dont get itches for the next time i have to install SL again

    Hi. I completely understand you. This is so frustrating. It is my 7th attempt(to install SL and completely fail) and I am tempted to quit it... I know that you said that TM will not work. I overwrote my IONetworkingFamily.kext and the patched is not working for neither for my wired not for the wireless airport. I know you are trying to help me but i am such a noob. Can you help mw with some info on how to restore the wireless connection? I have a Linksys Wireless b/g card, model WMP54GS I think and it was normally detected OOB. Can i restore the IONetworkingFamily.kext from my iatkos v7 install DVD? will this work? What is the correct procedure to restore it? My mobo is p5k-e and without wifi-ap.

    ok. I tried tm now, i was sure it was working but i got an error "The time machine could not be configured. The built in network interface could not be found." I am not sure what happened but i kindly ask you to help me enable it again since without it i cannot try the upgrade. I tried also using the patched kext on this link but it is not working http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=144738# It was surely working a month ago... Is this chameleon version ok? hxxp://chameleon.osx86.hu/articles/chameleon-20-rc4-is-out hxxp://chameleon.osx86.hu/file_download/39/Chameleon-2.0-RC4-r684-bin.tar.gz

    Cool. Ok. So please suppose that I am a total noob and have not had any prior experience besides installing iatkos v7. 1.) Why isn't snowuniversal 3.5 or 3.6 booting? 2.) I know that it s possible to install SL retail but I need some guidance. Can you please help me that route. I plan to rewrite the existing 10.5.8. install. (I know there exists a possibility to attach a separate sata disk to the existing leopard install and install SL on the new disk but I do not have that possibility because i have just one SATA disk) 3.) Can you give me help on how to get the ioreg file? The bios is latest for P5k-E official from ASUS. 4.) I even managed to boot and install the SL system throught psystar boot CD with this guide ( http://osx86sv.wordpress.com/2010/02/12/ho...es-motherboard/ ) but than i could not boot from the installed SL disk I got stuck at step the reboot step 9. 5.) Forgot to mention that i have a macbook with SL on it and is working wonderfully. I could attempt with some help the install through this laptop to a sata HD but I would need a USB->sata adapter.... this seems also a possibility. These guides seem so simple but when you are deep with your hands inside seem so frustrating because there so many things unexplained and so complex to figure out. Thank god there are still some kind souls in the insanelymac community It is such a pain beacuse I am accustomed to using my LCD also for consoles and even If i bought the new 21" imac i could not use it with HDMI input... bye!

    2.53 GHz Core2Duo E7200 2GB 667MHZ DDR2 SDRAM SATA Optiarc DVD RW AD-7203S: nVidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB Asus P5k-E Motherboard with JMicron SATA controller SATA 500GB WDC WD5000AAKS-00YGA0: HDD on sata 1 DVDRW on sata 3 no other usb and/or storage devices connected while booting 100% working 10.5.8. Iatkos V7 install at the moment. AHCI enabled. What switches are suggested besides -v when booting in darwin boot loader? What settings are suggested in BIOS? I have set all the necessary BIOS settings as per guide. I have a feeling that a.) the boot loader is not detecting the jmicron contoller or the HDD/DVDRW device b.) there are some non correct settings in bios and/or default switches in the 3.6 snow osx universal loader Thanks to anyone wanting to help me.... It has been now from august 2009 that I feel frustrated, not to mention the scam that i have been trough with EFI-X :/

    Hi, I am desperate. I am nearly willing to buy a below standard macmini because I am not able to run SL on my p5k-e board. I also have an nvidia 8800GT. The problem is that with either 3.5 or 3.6 snowosx universal distro i cannot seem to boot into the installer. After the darwin loader i let it boot automatically and then when i get the boot logo it waits cca 2-3 mins with a crossed stop sign later as if the loader cannot boot from the disc. I have a working 10.5.8 iatkos v7 install ATM, the HDD is on sata 1 channel and the CDROM is on SATA 3rd channel. When booting all the cables are unplugged except the power, so no other HDDs, no usb readers or bluetooth modules.... just the barebone vanilla system. I tried also the psystar boot cd which is working and i get to install the system but then cannot load the new SL from the HD. I am guessing there should be some bios settings since to everyone the 3.5 distro seems working on p5k boards.... I have AHCI enabled BTW..... Help! regards,
