  1. Re:OSX on P5KC

    I couldn't create a new topic because I'm a new member. That's why I decided to post a P5KC Guide to 10.5.7 Leopard iATKOS v7 installation here. Hope you won't mind. GUIDE (or maybe I should say, the thing that worked for me) As I successfully managed to install Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8 on my HP 550 laptop, I figured out that it could work with my desktop computer as well (Dual boot with window 7, of course). Hope the information found here will be able to help someone. Here are my specs: -MAINBOARD: Asus P5KC -CPU: Intel Quad Processor Q6600 -MEMORY: GEIL 2x1GB DDR2 800MHZ Dual-Channel
 -AUDIO: Integrated audio -GRAPHIC: Gainward GTX 260 216sp (works with QE/CI) -DISPLAY: Samsung SyncMaster 223BW
 -WI-FI: TL-WN321G (USB, TP-Link)
 -ETHERNET: Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet What was used: 1) iATKOS v7 DVD 2) Atheros L1 Ethernet driver (it can be found on the internet, I used one from iPC 10.5.6 DVD) 4) Windows 7 DVD if you want Dual boot (I will not be explaining the dual boot procedure, just the installation process for Leopard) Installation Process: 1) Boot from iAtkos v7 DVD 2) Using disk utility format the partition that you will be using for Leopard installation Mac OS Extended (Journaled) / HFS+) 3) Choose these options when customizing the installation (in the end, I realized that I am unsure if I checked some of these options or not): See the picture in the attachment (Installation.jpg) 4) Et Voilà. Note: Pioneer DVD is the only component that doesn’t work. 5) If you want to update to 10.5.8 you will need to boot from iATKOS v7 DVD again after restart and to select just the drivers. (you can find the details about the updating process by searching through insanelymac, for instance THIS LINK - of course, you will need to use different drivers than the ones described in this article) After explaining the whole process I will describe ISSUES I had to overcome: 1) Firewire ISSUE (After disabling firewire, second issue came up) 2) Still waiting for root device ISSUE Both ISSUES were solved by using Intel SATA/IDE found on iATKOS v7 DVD (if you followed the installation process you have already installed it) THIS IS WHAT WORKED FOR ME. DON'T TRY ANY OF THIS IF YOU'RE NOT SURE ABOUT WHAT ARE YOU DOING I Wish you Luck, because that is exactly what you need when trying to run this thing! Whatever happens, don't end up like this or this and certainly not like this Take Care.
