jonboyuk: Dude...thanks a ton. That at least gives me some hope...what a pain. I LOVE this board on Windows 7...but I really want OS X...almost decided to give up and spring a Gigabyte board...Asus makes the best mobo in my opinion...but the Mac lovers out here have so deep love for Gig stuff. I plan to try and run revobuild once I get this system up and running on Lion...just needed help to get there. I have done a ton of development in the kernel space of Linux...but the Mac world is foreign to me...just love their OS and apps. I will work with you on it unless this does it to me again...and at that point I will have to "Byte" the bullet...pun definitely intended! Wish me luck...and we can start a ROG Gene-Z build thread!
I am interested in using RevoBoot for my i7-2600, Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z, and ATI HD 5450. I am new to all this, so I don't really know where to start. I can get 10.6.3 to boot on my config...using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and the retail DVD. Can someone assist in a quick step guide? From that point...I have tried the combo update to 10.6.8. I am having very little luck with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to get video to work. I read dgsga's post on getting Lion to work on his similar config...but I don't know what bootloader to use or how to leverage RevoBoot after compiling it. I understand compiling very well, but I have no idea what to do after that. I appreciate any help I can get just to get it up and running.
dgsga: Did you have to install SL first? I would love to do the same thing (same mobo)...but both rBoot and LionBoot give me a kernel panic "Unable to find driver for this platform: \ACPI\" when trying to load Lion from a USB drive. Any words of wisdom on where to start? New to OS X on PC...but very familiar with your instructions from a Linux perspective. There is little to no information on how to boot from RevoBoot. Are you supposed to create some kind of BootCD?
