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.
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB
Nvidia 9500 GT 512MB
500GB Hitachi HD
USB wireless mouse keyboard
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:
---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.
