    OSX on GA-8S661GXM-775

    Hey guys, I have been doing computer upgrading on the side for some coworkers, and have been left with a working p4 mobo and peripherals that I'm thinking I'd like to hackintosh and turn into an HTPC. The mobo model is a GA-8S661GXM-775 P4 board. The specifications page is Here but I'll sum up which chips I need to make sure I can do. North bridge: SiS661GX South bridge: SiS964 MuTIOL® Media I/O Realtek ALC653 Codec chip ICS1883 LAN PHY chip I believe I have seen the Realtek driver on one of my iAtkos/iDeneb DVDs, but everything else I am unsure of. If anyone knows whether yes or no that will work, and perhaps more importantly where I could find the necessary files, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  2. Have you priced out your desired i7 rig? I would consider possible (and practical) setup and remember the cost. As a zero dollar upgrade, imo... It would be a no-brainer. The graphics is the biggest difference as far as I am concerned; You won't notice that big of a difference in individual performance (I typically run CS4 Ps/Ai, Sketchup, maya, modo as well as ~10 additional apps. I've noticed a difference there.) My upgrade was a larger contrast, but my iMac was a 2.0 Ghz core duo, and nowhere near the performance of your iMac. Consider the cost difference, use that as your deciding factor. I wouldn't spend more than $500 for that upgrade. Also, make sure you have at least two weeks where you can live without OSX.

    VPN Info

    Hey guys, I'm relatively new to (posting) on the forum, and have since succesfully set up OSx86 on my i7 thanks in part to the information here. I've been thinking it would be nice to access my computer (Since I will be leaving it on most of the time) from outside my home office, and I was considering finding a cheap Atom Netbook, hackintoshing that and running some sort of VPN configuration to do just that. Essentially, I'd like an effective method of screen-sharing/file-sharing with administrative access from a WAN accesspoint. Any information to get the ball rolling (Links, articles etc.,) you may have for me on creating an effective VPN network would be greatly appreciated. All computers will run 10.5.7 or later, the tower is wired. Thanks in advance
  5. On mac hardware, yes. Why don't you figure out what hardware you have (ie: motherboard model/chipset, video card, processor etc.,) and search those in the forum?

    iDeneb 10.5.6

    Hey guys, I recently installed iDeneb 10.4 onto my asus p6t deluxe. I kept my 4870 in the entire time (p6t has no onboard video so obviously that's not an option) and with 12 GB ram for the entirety of the process. First off, make sure you are booting with busratio=20 until all drivers are in. The combo upgrade kit worked without a hitch. You won't be able to successfully boot (read: reboot loop) until you properly HSDT patch. As for graphics, I had to append -x after installation. iDeneb is unstable. For drivers, there is a great how to on this forum for ideneb on asus p6t already on the forum. When I get home if you need I could link you.
  7. Hi guys, first off: Thank you very much for the tutorials. They have been very helpful for me and I am 99% done my hackintosh install. I'm running iDeneb 1.4 and have installed the upgrade kit to 10.5.7, I have successfully ran all four cores and HT, my 4870 is up and running as well as my ATA and my Ethernet. The only problem is that I'm getting a KP on startup (Fine if I boot with -x). "Backtrace terminted-invalied frame pointer 0 Kernal loadable modules in backtrace (with dependencies): com.superhai.driver.GeneralCPUPowerManagement(1.1.3_@0x8967d000->0x89686fff dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily(1.2.0)@0x7efb1000" Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
