  1. Perfect. It now boots... Attached. dsdt.aml.zip I also installed VoodoHDA 0.2.56 and now I have sound. But graphics is strange: I have a MSI 7600GT. If I boot with GraphicsEnabler=No it is not recognized. If I boot GraphicsEnabler=Yes, I get a Kernal Panic. Update: Changing to 32 bit mode, it boots normally... If I boot with -x it is perfectly identified: What shall I do? Thanks/Obrigado R Silva
  2. Hi tseug The guide looks fantastic. I tried to follow another guides which booted one time (the fist time it boots from USB), and then I started to get "waiting for root device", were I am stuck at the moment. So I will give I try to your guide soon. Can you tell me if it should work on: MG: GA-965P-DS3 rev 1.0 F12 CPU: C2D E6600 RAM: 2 Gb Disk: IDE Master 80Gb GPU: MSI 7600 GT Thanks R Silva
  3. Thanks MaLd0n for this guide - e saudações desde Portugal! Unfortunately I am stuck at "waiting for root device" at the third boot of Lion... This is my setup: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS2, C2D E6600, 2Gbs of RAM, 1 80GB disk IDE connected, GPU: MSI 7600 GT. What I did: 1) followed your guide, it worked as expected 2) booted the first time in Lion 3) installed Chameleon to lion partition 4) moved the Mac 9,1 Extra folder to Lion disk 5) run the DSDT Auto-Patcher and copied the DSDT generated in the desktop to the Extra folder On the second boot of lion I got a kernel panic with message "cpu 1 has no hpet assigned to it", so I put the 3 kexts you mention in your post in E/E (IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector, AHCIPortInjector and NullCPUPowerManagement). I don't get the panic anymore but I am now stuck on the "waiting for root device". I changed the BIOS settings to/from IDE to AHCI, tried all combinations, with no change. I also tried to delete each and both the E/E AHCI kexts... no change. How do I solve this? Please help. Thanks / Obrigado RSilva
  4. Yes, I am a 10.5.2 Kalyway DS3 hackintosh owner but I did not install that particular update. I am still trying to understand if the Security Update 2008-002 can be safely installed or not... RS
  5. Leopard working on GA-965P-S3

    These are mine: Hardware Overview: Model Name: Mac Model Identifier: Mac Pro Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 3.24 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 4 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 1.62 GHz Boot ROM Version: Hack.int.0sh System Software Overview: System Version: Mac OS X 10.5.2 (9C31) Kernel Version: Darwin 9.1.0 Boot Volume: Leopard Boot Mode: Normal I fixed the PS2 issue, but not the sound. Just did the upgrade to 10.5.2 (kalyway combo). I know have the kalyway_10.5.2._kernels.mpkg to install. In the package we have the Vanilla and the pathed kernels... Should I have a try with the Vanilla kernel? I don't think so.
  6. Leopard working on GA-965P-S3

    Yes, yes, yes... Finally. It boots, in MBR. I also DIDN'T install the Vanilla Kernel + Fix, but I have included the NATIT video drivers (and then SwithResX to make 1680x1050 resolution available)... Network is working, but no Sound. I have Creative Audigy2 ZS and it doesn't recognize it. I read somewhere it should have been detected automatically but no. PS2 keyboard and mouse are also not available... and I will need them. So, now to a different black board: make sound work, then PS2 keyb+mouse. After that, update to 10.5.2. PS - One question: not choosing Vanilla kernel, which kernel are we using? It isn't the plain Apple one, right?
  7. Leopard working on GA-965P-S3

    I am back to square 1, with the boot problems but at least Darwin/x86 appears on screen (in square 2 I just got a black screen and then a reboot). I will try tu assure that EFI is correctly installed in the disk, and I will let you know how it goes. ++ Update ++ Nothing. Just updating EFI isn't enough. I will now proceed with chaging MBR to GUID... and reinstall everything. Fist with Vanilla+Fix, NATIT drivers and EFI_GUID. ++ Update 2 ++ Nothing again. This time Chain booting error. Chain0 files is also no go. Back to MBR. This time following your proposal: no vanilla, no fix, no drivers, just EFI_MBR.

    And how did you solve it?
  9. Leopard working on GA-965P-S3

    Well, I finally got a new disk (SATA, all my internal disks are SATA, and I have 5 of them, 2 in RAID) - disk2s1 is the one I am installing Leopard in. I have VISTA bootloader working, in a triple boot system: Vista, XP and now Leopard. My first attempts to install Leopard are not a good story. I have formated the new disk using MBR using the Kalyway 10.5.1 install disk. Choosed the Vanila kernel + ACPI Fix, a video driver for my Nvidia G7600GT card and the EFI_MBR. After ending the installation, and booting in to vista to create the Leopard entry in the bootloader, I tried to boot Leopard. Darwin/x86 boot options appeared and choosed -x, then -v, then -s, and all the times I tried some very fast letters/text appeared on the screen and the machine rebooted. Well, I found some postings saying that we shouldn't choose anything else other than the kernel and EFI in the customization of the install, so I tried everything else without the video driver. Worst, this time not even the Darwin/x86 options or the very fast letters/texts appear - the machine just reboots. Back to 1st option, now again with a video driver (a different one this time, the NATIT drivers). I will do this tomorrow night... Ah, my BIOS is F12, I think... does it make a difference? And can I just format the disk with Leopard with GUID partion table mode, without impacting the way my machine boots, using Vista bootloader (which is in a different disk, of course)?
  10. Leopard working on GA-965P-S3

    I have this exact Motherboard and I was just starting to install 10.5.1 Kalyway. But I am stuck on the first problem: diskutil in the OSX install disk does not recognize my RAID0 SATA setup. It recognizes both disks as separate disks, not as a RAID setup. Do you know if I can use and install OSX on a partition in the RAID setup?
