  1. Minor install issue of EC

    I get a KP. It looks like the USB KP. I have USB 3 on a pie card which I did uninstall, and I also have a broadcom pie wifi/bt that also connects to usb port. I uninstalled that too and still get the same KP. I know I am totally missing a rather easy step. I just can't think of it.
  2. Minor install issue of EC

    Oh, Jeese I need to update my profile! Okay I DO get a KP on boot up. And I do indeed see IOUSB. Luckily my usb 3 controller is a pie card.
  3. Minor install issue of EC

    I have a solid yosemite install and just leave the boot loader usb stick in a slot and boot to my tower that way. now , I installed the EC ( dmg from torrent site ) using super duper. It renames the stick to OS X Base System. Okay, I think so far so good. Now, when I boot with my yosemite stick and choose the new el capital stick I get this error Can't find /System/Library/Kernels/Kernel I know it's my fault, i'm just wondering what my next step is. In the mean time I am searching around these parts for clues. System: Supermicro X8DT3 Dual Xeon X5650 128 gig ddr3 too many SSD / HDD to list 650 TI TC Electronic and Steinberg firewire audio interfaces

    your mobo boots to mac without a 3rd party gpu? I got mine to boot, but for some reason I plug in my 550Ti and I can't get to BIOS at all. I tried a GUI version of the bios updater. If you search for the American Megatrends BIOS flash utility, theres a few in the rar file. Most of them didn't work for me or would freeze my computer outright. Then I tried the GUI one wich had a bunch of features that I did not quite understand. SO..it's possible that my mobo was not patched. But. I can install 10.9. But ##### takes a dump when I install a bootloader. Major PITA!!

    flagtuck, you should be good to go. I too have an MSI mobo, but the flash utility freezes my pc. Please let me know if you are successful, also, are you running 64 or 32 bit windows and what version. 7 or 8 or earlier? Thanks!

    Something is wrong. afuwinx64 freezes my computer. I follow the instructions but afuwin just crashes my tower. Whats the newest afuwin? I google, but nothing shows up. EIDT: Downloaded newest AMIflash zip file. Lots of folders and other zip files in there. I'll do some reading and hopefully I'll be able to patch this board.

    My BIOS freezes at trying to update with the pmpatched BIOS file. The mobo is not dead. LUCKY me!! If I upload the BIOS file here, could someone patch it for me? Perhaps I am not doing it right Or, should I use an older BIOS file to patch?

    How long did it take to install? I tried last night but the progress bar did not move for a couple hours. So I force quitted the install. Ill have to see in a little bit if it borked my setup.
  14. 10.6.3 Retail on Intel DP35DP Working!

    So I was having all kinds of issues trying to get 10.6.3 on an amd setup. What I did was use BootCD 1.5 in the snowleopard amd thread. Then installed 10.6.3 However, I could NOT get snow leopard to boot at all. So I put the drive in my intel box and used Chameleon bootloader. ANd OSX boots incredibly fast!! My graphics card showed up natively ( Nvidia 9500GT ) And I got my audio working with Voodoo HDA Lastly I used the most recent 82566MM kext I could find for ethernet. The last thing I need to do is install Chameleon to my drive so I dont have to put the boot cd anymore. But so far, Snow Leopard is working like a charm. Its pretty fast on my setup too. OSX86's never seemed quite stable or useful to me until I did this setup. Im still working on a few things, but as it stands..I can atest to the DP35DP motherboard as working with 10.6.3 More to come later.
