  1. Asus P5N7A-VM

    Has anyone tried AsereBLN Booter ?? which is Based on Chameleon RC4 / PCEFI10.5 http://www.efixusers.com/showthread.php?t=644 By reading the post, it seems a lots of the problems we encounter may be due to the boot loader we use. By the way which DSDT.aml is the latest for this board, there are so many of them in this post.

    here from superhai's website http://www.superhai.com/darwin.html

    tried iDeneb 1.4, can boot into installer, but after installation, it will not boot. Then tried iPC 10.5.6 Live DVD, that doesn't even boot. Finally, there's a way, with a old PowerBook G4 running leopard, use the retail DVD 10.5.6, USB to SATA converter to connect to a empty hard drive. this guide which I think is in Dutch was very helpful. could someone please translate it? http://www.muzzle.nl/handleidingen-tips/11...nstallatie.html So, after reading that, you can read the following post on how people install it on GigaByte Geforce 9400 Mobo, because the method is similar except for the DSDT files used. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1043822 Must use Diabolik 's DSDT.aml for this ASUS board, it's on the Dutch website or this discussion thread for download, this step is very important because otherwise the installer/system won't boot, must use the right DSDT.aml with latest version of bootloader. Format the hard drive with two partitions on the PowerBook G4 must have Leopard already installed. Call it partition 1 and partition 2. 1. restore leopard original DVD to the first partition, patch it with OSInstall.mpkg (on a leopard Mac system with USB to SATA) 2. Use the Universal OSX86 installer to patch the Leopard installer, OSinstall.mpkg, DSDT.aml, kext . (on a Leopard Mac) 3. Connect the SATA driver to PC, in ASUS BIOS set hard drive to AHCI Mode. Install leopard but need darwin boot variable -v -f to boot. (on hackintosh) 4, repeat step 2 using a Mac for the Second Partition (Leopard installed) i.e install DSDT.aml, kext bootloader using Universal OSX86 installer, now you just need to select boot from the second partition, boot with -v -f. 5. install graphic card driver called NVKush, then install WiFi driver, then modify /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAHCIPort.kext/Contents/Info.plist so that System profiler shows the correct hard drive controller (optinal), it would not affect anything. (done on Desktop PC) 6. to making booting easier, clone this Macintosh HD to the another new hard drive's first partition, there's not need to use the external SATA every time. Then repeat step 2 again, install boot loader, DSDT etc. everything is in this forum, just read it through then everyone should be able to install it on this board, because it is not that difficult. I think this method is slightly complicate, there must be a simpler one, we just need someone to write it down here and share with us. Again, Thanks to ALL of your great work for making this board a good osx86 hardware.

    Actually this method made the audio worked. for some reason the ALC1200 is recognized as 888. can't test the optical because I don't have a optical audio device. Intel High Definition Audio: Device ID: 0x104382FE Audio ID: 888 Available Devices: Line Out: Connection: 1/8 inch Jack Headphone: Connection: 1/8 inch Jack Line In: Connection: 1/8 inch Jack Speaker: Connection: Internal S/P-DIF Out: Connection: Optical S/P-DIF In: Connection: Optical

    Great advice... Sleep worked after i set usb legacy support to FullSpeed, shutdown doesn't always work, but it worked most of them time. I've been searching around, and still couldn't find the SMBIOSResolver kext . VoodooPower and GenericPowerManagement is a great tool!!! thanks for the introduction. I used the AppleAzaliaAudio.kext for audio, but it only has stereo output, there are quite a lot of post out there about the ALC1200 chip, which kext will work on this board and allow the analogue output and Mic work? since I only need those two at the moment.

    I've been searching around, but couldn't find Superhai SMBIOS Enabler, do I need it for 10.5.6 ? what does it do? I'm new here, but just would like to report that my 10.5.6 is working, using the leopard retail 10.5.6 dvd instead of the Unibody, similar method used as described in earlier posts. Many thanks to everyone providing useful information in this post. I've got Quad core Q8200, P5N7A-VM with 4GB mem, running NVkush with on broad 9300 GPU. used the quad core DSDT.aml and the usual patches with audio kext from this thread. Problems: Restart/Shutdown doesn't work yet, may be because my Legacy USB is still set at "Auto" "HiSpeed", will disable it and try. QE/CI works, but model number not shown in Profiler, guess that doesn't hurt... CPU not recognised properly, showing 3.8 Ghz Unknown CPU. (should be 2.33GHz Quad core) but in activity monitor there are Four CPUs running. besides all that, everything seem to work just fine so far.
  7. iDeneb v1.4 10.5.6 Released!

    Got one possibly obivous question.. Will this work on ASUS P5N7A-VM? on a MBR partitioned SATA harrd drive? Nvidia 730i chipset, geforce 9300
