  1. P8P67Pro and Non Pro Lion install usb for dummies..

    Andy -- Having issues with this install for some reason; wondering if you have any suggestions. I have a pretty rock solid 10.6.8 system with the following build basics: ASUS P8P67 Pro i7 2600K 5770 Batmobile Vertex3 Following the steps above, I can boot into Lion no problem, but stuck at 1024x768 resolution, and "no kext loaded" indicated in the system info. If I edit com.apple.Boot.plist to change to GraphicsEnabler=Yes, I get a permanent hang at the shiny apple, spinning icon screen. For hours. So far, I haven't been able to remedy the problem. Any suggestions are most welcome.
  2. Asus P8P67 Pro install guide

    OK, I seem to have tentatively solved my stability problems by turning off Turbo and SpeedStep. I've now been running quite stably for a while now. But a bummer to lose those features, I guess.
  3. Asus P8P67 Pro install guide

    Another first poster here -- I reported on a successful build over at TonyMac, but I'm now experiencing some instability that manifests itself as a sudden reboot -- no error message, nothing in the Console log that indicates a problem, the system just reboots. Specs: P8P67 Pro Rev B3 / i7 2600K / Radeon 5770 "Batmobile" / 4x4GB Ripjaws / OCZ Vertex-3 / Antec P183 / Corsair AX750 / Scythe Mugen 2 Tried starting over from scratch: Boot from Andy's CD Format OCZ; install 10.6.0 from DVD Reboot from Andy's CD; Install 10.6.7 Combo; Copy Andy's installer package to HD and run. Here, a reboot just gave me an endless gray apple screen, so I started over and tried installing BridgeEnabler from the TonyMac site. At this point, reboot works just peachy. DVD player would crash, so I added GraphicsEnabler=Yes to my com.apple.boot.plist and that fixed the problem. So it seems like everything is hunky-dory at this point, but I get these damn reboots. They seem exacerbated by a heavy load (like running a Handbrake conversion), but have happened when surfing, fiddling in terminal, etc. I've tried running the Cache/Permission repair functionality in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and that doesn't seem to help. I've set the system to not sleep, so I don't think that's the problem. And when this started, I was worried about CPU temps, but I pulled the necessary monitoring kexts from Project OS X Forum, and my temps seldom see 50C, even under load. Any thoughts?? I'm pulling my hair out over here. Thanks for all the hard work on this, by the way...your thread is what finalized my mobo decision when spec'ing out this build. Cheers!
