    I recommend using the driver done by Taruga at http://wiki.taruga.net, however, the website appears to be down at the moment. If you just need audio out, you can use the Azalia 1988b for sound. Edit: Since Taruga's site is down, I've attached the Taruga_AD1988b_rev4_Installer.zip that I recommend using. It should enable most functionality except for the front ports.

  2. Help with Graphics

    I would suggest searching/asking in the correct forum: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showforum=151

    In order to enable AHCI in Vista, if you've already installed it in IDE mode, you must follow the following KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976/en-us

    I've never tried SATA mode, so I have no recommendation. However, I do recommend turning off "turn off hard drives" in the power options. When I did this, OS X acts much better.

    Which 8800GTS card do you have? How much RAM will tell me which revision. If its 320MB or 640MB you can use the standard NVinject drivers. Found here: http://nvinject.free.fr/downloads.php If you have an 8800GTS card with 256MB or 512MB, you will need to use the 10.5.2 method found in another thread: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=83931

    Leopard does not support RAID through through Intel chipset.

    Yes, you need a SATA DVD drive. I believe it is because the Kalyway disc itself uses EFI to boot.

    All cores, never had to use cpus=1

    1. EFI works 2. Vanilla kernel works, with the Sleep kext/patch installed with it. 3. I use GUID/GPT with no issues. Futureshock wasn't so lucky 4. Haven't noticed any issues that would pertain to the X38 itself. Perhaps with the JMicron PATA chipset maybe and possibly the NVinject drivers. My problems have mainly been related to VMware Fusion. I do have some recommendations though: Enable ACPI 2.0 in the BIOS Turn off Speedstep in the BIOS I disabled putting hard drives to sleep in OSX power management. I run Leopard at 3.0Ghz with my Q6600 my Maximus Formula. I run Version 907 of the BIOS. You have to do zero amount of work to get everything working with the Kalyway install. Just make sure you select the AD1988 Azalia kext during the install (only stereo output from the analog right now. 10.5.2 update may change this). If you have networking problems after the install, try changing the network cable to the opposite port.
  10. VMware Fusion 1.1.1 was just released on 1/24/08. Haven't had a chance to try it yet. Anyone with problems should give it a shot.
  11. Run Fusion, but prior to starting any VMs, look under VMware Fusion on the menu bar for Preferences. You should see: Debugging: Enable debugging checks Check the box for enable debugging checks and start a VM and see if it runs.
  12. Any chance boot_v8 supports kernel options through grub? I'd like to be able to set NeoGRUB to tell boot_v8 to always use device 84 (OS X is on the 5th drive in my system). I can specify it by hand and it works.
  13. Which mouse do you use?

    Razer Lachesis with USBOverdrive
  14. The Kalyway install has the ICH9 chipset driver built in. Just need a SATA DVD drive or other means to install it (USB drive, etc).
