AB9 Pro - E6300 (2.8GHz on 400MHz bus) - 2 GB A-Data DDR2-800 (board didn't like my MDT DDR2-667).
I installed Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2] with a TSCorp SH-S183A (S-ATA) onto an empty Samsung HD501LJ (even unpartitioned).
All drives in AHCI mode connected to the ICH8R. Boot from DVD hang when in IDE mode.
I used the loginwindow patch, ALC882 AppleHDA v0.4b for audio (not recogniced in profiler) and Natit_Uni_1.0 for video (eVGA GF7800GT Co - fan control is working).
LAN, Sil3132, JMicron and firewire turned off in BIOS.
I'm trying to get WLAN working first, will try the others later...
