    InsanelyMac Protégé
  1. I used it with the EP45T-UD3LR, and it worked great. Identical to the EP45 except for the DDR3. Others in this thread have done the same. Only issue after this install was Bonjour, and fixed that with the extension here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=181133 Your power supply might be a touch light for that build, but probably okay. Also, make sure to update to the F6b firmware if you use that board, it cuts BIOS scan times with AHCI to a few seconds, from up to 30. And boot from a SATA drive, IDE is fine to use to boot Ubuntu if you want to dual boot (haven't tried windows 7).
  2. For others wondering if this will work with the nearly identical GA-EP45T-UD3LR; I am running one with an E6300 Core 2 Duo. Originally set it up with 10.6.1 using the lifehacker guide, but sound was a pain (two kexts in S/L/E), Time Machine failed with UUID problems, and itunes library sharing didn't work. Upgrading to 10.6.2 from my cloned backup hd broke sound among other things. Decided to switch to this setup without reinstall, here is what worked for me (YMMV, using carbon copy cloner to make a bootable backup is a life saver): Deleted my /Extras folder and the two sound kexts in S/L/E, ran this installer on my hd. Updated to 10.6.2. Booted right up, maybe a little slower boot, but sound works and shows a named list of outputs rather than 3 generic line outs, UUID problems gone, Time Machine works, shared itunes library works. Haven't extensively tested sleep or anything, but it looks really good. Only issue now is the iphone/ipod touch remote program won't show up in itunes when I try to set that up, so there may be a bonjour issue. Haven't worked on that much yet. Thanks much for the installer, ended lots of fruitless effort to do this myself. Is there anyway I can get your DSDT source code? There are a few things I am thinking about tweaking, but not sure if it is worth the effort since this is close to perfect now.

  3. ALC888 100% in Snow Leopard x64

    Haven't tested 5.1, but stereo works, and seems to be working perfectly. No pops or hisses, running on a GA-EP45T-UD3LR with ALC888, ICH10R, and an E6300. Used lifehacker's Snow Leopard guide to install and get it booting from hard drive, added these two kexts, and everything worked. And I had been working on sound from various other guides and sources, including testing many kexts and editing my dsdt.aml like crazy days trying to get this working. Many thanks for a great post; I had given up and gone back to Ubuntu for a few days. This system is usable now that I have sound.
