    ASUS P5N-E SLI (650i)

    Total failure with my my P5N-E SLI and kalaway. I installed to my USB hdd then cloned it. My SATA just gave +HFS partition errors. EDIT: I got all the way to formatting my SATA drive by using an old mouse and removing all USB from my BIOS. However on format after 2 min or so it goes frozen.
  3. Can this install on a SATA HDD? I also have a USB hdd.. envying, did you install on an ATA drive then clone to the SATA in your sig? thanks.

    Doesn't read hard drive.

    I have the same board, never got SATA and PATA is dirt slow for me...

    Native SATA installation on AsRock 775DualVSTA

    Try the other video connection? swap from DVI to VGA or what have you..
  6. I am pretty sure my osx86 is perfect. No crashes or anything. One thing that makes me worry is some apps dont load, they just sit in the launcher dock bouncing up and down for at least 8 seconds? Strange for an E6600 with 2 gigs of newer ram. Kind of weird I know. Can any one see anything obvious with my bench marks? http://db.xbench.com/merge.xhtml?doc1=2296...nsetCookie=true Thanks!

    VIA VT8251 WORK AROUND

    Hi, I'm following this and in windows my device ID for my VIA chipset (SATA not RAID) is: VIA VT8237A SATA RAID Controller Chip: VIA Technologies Inc Detail Chip Vender VIA Technologies Inc Device VIA VT8237A SATA RAID Controller OEM Vender Elitegroup Computer Sys PnpID VEN_1106&DEV_0591&SUBSYS_18961019&REV_80 Vender VIA Technologies, Inc. OEM Device from Elitegroup Computer Sys When I put in 4&E6F93DC&0&00 all I get on reboot is the spinning wheel gray screen then the X over the drive. Dang, Any thoughts?
  8. Hi, how can I tell my device ID? VIA chipset. VIA VT8237A SATA RAID Controller Chip: VIA Technologies Inc Detail Chip Vender VIA Technologies Inc Device VIA VT8237A SATA RAID Controller OEM Vender Elitegroup Computer Sys PnpID VEN_1106&DEV_0591&SUBSYS_18961019&REV_80 Vender VIA Technologies, Inc. OEM Device from Elitegroup Computer Sys Im in windows. Its on an old ide hdd now not loading up for OSX. Thanks!
  9. Yes its the fan not totally mounted. Its not compatible with my mobo. Im getting a blue orb 2. Thanks again,.
  10. No overclocking. Its usually at 30c and right now its 43. I did select two cores during Vmware install. Funny I just watched the 70c for 4 min after letting it go at 70c for 10 min. ehe, really smart for a CPU I just got 4 days ago. Thanks for the advice. (I wonder if selecting 2 cores during install was a bad idea) The intel stock fan WOW what a {censored}. Im not sure its even mounted on all 4 sides. I hate it, its getting replaced ASAP.
  11. Hay, I did the install and VMWARE was running my Intel E6600 at 70c! I ran it at 70C for about 10 minutes GASP. I wonder if any one should put in the sticky of this topic to run VMWARE with Single core? Single core its at 59c. I hope no damage was done! GASP!

    Uh SATA HD's on nforce 590 sli?

    Curiosity about SATA and osx86? What if: 1. I installed to an IDE drive. 2. Got my SATA drives installed 3. Booted with F8 -V -X? Ghosted to the SATA drive? Or then my device ID is incorrect? So far I get gray booting and each experiment takes 2 hours with unlimited possibilities = 400 hours lol.
  13. Hmm, I have a promise fasttrack SATA PCI card and onboard VIA sata. All bios settings are good (I switched them around 50X) Still nothing in disc menu when installing OSX. I have a ghost from an IDE drive. Cant I get the SATA drivers all installed then ghost into my SATA drive? I have raid disabled among other various bios settings. Would it be best to chill untill some un iversal VIA/Promise drivers come out? Or should I keep banging away in hopes something works so my drives are detected during install? Thanks, (I know there 600 posts on this because I just got done reading them)
