  1. Snow Leopard on Gigabyte Mobos

    Hello, Sorry, but I am a novice at this. I can not install ML on my SL 10.6.6 because I receive a message that this is only possible with SL 10.6.8 or above. I have tried many times with different kexts and through different methods to upgrade my system to 10.6.8 so that I could install Lion and now Mountain Lion, but have failed each and every time. Does anybody know a way around this, because I would like to install ML. Thank you for your consideration mdg1618 my system: mobo: GA-X58A-UD3R rev: 1.0 BIOS: F6 CPU: Core i7 - 920 LGA: 1366 Graphic Card: XFX ATI Readon HD 5770 Audio: Realtek ALC889 Ethernet: Realtek 8111D RAM: 6 GB of GSkills Trident DDR3-2000
  2. Hello, I have been trying for some time now to get my system (see below) to run Empire EFI. After I change my BIOS and follow the install instructions I have Internet access, but no sound and the onscreen display does not match my monitor. I have tried various DSDTs, but either the sound or graphics were not properly set. When I tried to add different kexts to my system, I ended up worse off than I started and needed to place the EFI desk in my system just to have access to SL. I am new to this so please forgive me if this sounds repetitive and silly, but we all got to start somewhere. Any if any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
