  1. I've also had good luck with the Gigabyte P55-UD4P using the 10.5.8 Voodoo Kernel. Sleep doesn't work.
  2. Awesome news! From the imac page: http://www.apple.com/imac/specs.html That's the Lynnfield i7-860/i5-750 they are talking about! The Lynnfield is the only one that supports 16GB memory. The mobile Clarksfield doesn't match the freq spec listed for the new imac nor the memory...Clarksfield is limited to 8GB.
  3. Just wanted to let everyone know that iDeneb v1.6 10.5.8 Lite install was painless. This being my first time in OSx86 land I wasn't sure what to expect. My Hardware: GA-P55-UD4P i7 860 G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB Nvidia 9500 GT 512MB 500GB Hitachi HD USB wireless mouse keyboard Setup procedures: 1. BIOS : disable firewire, enable AHCI 2. Boot DVD: iDeneb v1.6 10.5.8 Lite using the -v cpus=4 busratio=20 3. Custom options selected from iDeneb v1.6 10.5.8 Lite menu: ---Intel SATA/IDE ---JMicron SATA/IDE ---Voodoo HDA ---Realtek R1000 ---Qoopz 9.8 Voodoo ---Netkas Universal Enabler Nvidia 512MB. --- I believe that was all I selected. 4. Post Install: edit com.boot.apple.plist with the following ---add kernel flag 'cpus=4 busratio=20' Being a mac virgin , and new to OSx86, I've not kicked the tires long enough to see what is not working correctly or where to look. The firewire doesn't, when I re-enable it in BIOS it appears to be recognized during boot log, but the boot process stalls at "BSD root: disk". Sleep doesn't work. So with firewire disabled and AHCI enabled, I'm able to boot/surf/play/shutdown/reboot with Leopard 10.5.8. Pretty cool. Geekbench gives me a score of 6281... I guess not that good. I see from http://www.trick77.com/2009/10/03/dsdt-dsl...gabyte-p55-ud3/ were able to get 10968! So what next? I stuck with the minimum options that I understood when installing.
