  1. P7805u Gateway FX (Snow Leopard 10.6)

    To get it working on my machine I used Rebel EFI from Psystar, installed Snow Leopard. I then used the NVInject from the iAtkos v7 install disk to get the video working. I too can't get audio to work. Working it...

    Both Parallels 4 and VMWare 3 work fine on my build.
  3. Help Installing OSx86 on a Gateway P-7805u

    I've gotten iAtkos v7 to run beautifully on this machine. Updated it to 10.5.8 and it runs without a hitch. Only issue I am seeing is with the Geekbench score. Puts it at a 1672 score. I have no idea what is wrong with it but it seems to be sucking wind. Overall the performance of the computer seems fine. Just weird that Geekbench rates it so low. Thanks again for this thread, it has been a huge help!

    I can't restore from keyboard either. Minor inconvenience.

    Well I got everything to work. Posting to this board with it as I type. Turned out the mobo really doesn't like DDR2 1066 RAM. Bumped it down to 800 and I haven't had a problem since. I did have an initial problem with the NIC running REALLY slow, but after a reboot it is screaming like it should. Thanks for the help guys. Anyway to change my vote at the top to read Working great?

    Never overclocked before. Just using defaults. Except for the CPU. For some reason it defaults to a x8 multiplier instead of x9. My CPU voltage is slightly different than adam's as well. Okay, sounds reasonable. I have no idea what I would change my voltage settings to. Do I decrease them?

    Okay, so I have been trying to get this to work for the past 8 hours and I am failing. Here is what keeps happening: -If I do a fresh restore onto the thumb drive, and then install the Mobo package from LH...once I try and boot from the flash drive it gets stuck at Verifying DMI pool data... - When I reboot it MAY get to the start of the installation -If I get to the start of the installation and try to format my HDD for MacOS, 50% of the time it will KP, the other 50 it will act as if it is formatting the drive. After I do format the drive, I get to the select drive screen of the installation and if I click continue, it KP. -If I get all the way to the point where it starts installing, I get to 28 minutes remaining and then KP. Sometimes it just says it failed to load Support files. -Sometimes I just get an Installation error log that comes up right after partitioning drive that cries about: --NSDocumentController's invocation of - [NSFileManager URLForDirectory:inDomain:appropriateForURL:create:error:] returned nil for NSAutosavedInformationDirectory. Here's the error: "You can't save the file "Autosave Information" because the volume "Mac OS X Install DVD" is read only." I have yet to get past the beginning stages of the install. I have replaced everything in my case except well, the case and the mobo and processor. I don't have a spare mobo or processor lying around. Hardware: GA-EP45-UD3P Intel Q9650 Quad Core BFG NVidia 9800 GTX+ (Have tried with ASUS NVidia GT 260) Netgear Gb Ethernet card w/GA311NA Chipset 8GB DDR2 1066 Mushkin RAM SATA HDD/DVDROM Using Sandisk Flash drive for install (have tried a regular 500GB USB drive as well - same issues) Not sure where to go from here. Thanks for any help you can give.
