    P5W DH Deluxe Wifi Driver?

    Grat. Now if someone writes an irda driver for the remote control we'll have a practicaly fully working os x motherboard.

    No, it's not a nice solution but sadly I don't know a better one. I don't know if there are any real speed issues with the EZ-Backup ports. Xbench Disk Test: Inel: 75.46 EZ-backup: 72.79 I can live with that.

    Yes, I noticed that too and I'm also skeptic about it. I've ordered an external disk case with e-sata support so I'll be able to try when I get it.

    I've already played with this. Here's my post about it: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=170812 Perhaps you want to give it a go with those drivers. The link to the driver download page obviously changed - try this one: http://152.104.125.41/downloads/downloadsV...;Downloads=true The one at the bottom of the page should be the right one.

    Interesting research job. I've been using the orange port for my main HDD for some time now and I didn't notice any problems with it so I think it's just as safa as any other. Xbench seems fine too: Results 72.79 System Info Xbench Version 1.3 System Version 10.4.7 (8J2135) Physical RAM 2048 MB Model ADP2,1 Drive Type External Disk 0 Disk Test 72.79 Sequential 96.46 Uncached Write 116.73 71.67 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 111.67 63.18 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 63.27 18.52 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 122.83 61.73 MB/sec [256K blocks] Random 58.45 Uncached Write 22.40 2.37 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Write 174.38 55.83 MB/sec [256K blocks] Uncached Read 94.71 0.67 MB/sec [4K blocks] Uncached Read 133.34 24.74 MB/sec [256K blocks] I haven't tested the other ports though. I wonder what would happen with those numbers if I would got another drive of the same size and put it in the second orange port. Has anyone perhaps tested the external e-sata port? I'm thinking of getting an external drive and it would be a nice alternative to USB/firewire.

    It should only affect copy performance from the DVD drive to the HD and the burn speed from the HD to the DVD. I seriously doubdt that this makes your system slow, since I made my first OS X install (a test install) on this setup with the same IDE HD and IDE DVD combination and it was perfectly usable. I recomend that you rather get a SATA II drive that a external burner (if that is an option for you). I noticed quite a speedup with disk performance when I moved from IDE to SATA II drives.

    The Jmicron IDE controller (the black one at the bottom) does not work with osx. You have to connect your hard drive and your DVD drive to the primary IDE controller (one as the master and one as the slave) and it should workd fine.

    I got rid of it! Simply connect your sata disk to the orange EZ-Backup Serial ATA connectors instead of the red Intel CH7R Serial ATA connector (see your user guide how do do this). Boot into bios and check that your boot disk is the right one (look for something like External Disk 0). I also did a clean install sice I messed up my system before while trying to fix this with a software method but I think you shoud be ok without any further modifications.

    Does the Gigabyte also show an extra drive in os x? Is anyone runnng a P5W DH Deluxe based os x system on a IDE disk and no other SATA devices connected?

    I have this problem on Sata 1 (the bootable hard disk). I also have an IDE disk and DVD burner, but this problem is probably SATA related since the disk is displayed on a sata bus.
