  1. any updates on sleep fully working?
  2. Asus P5N7A-VM

    hey there nowhinjing, would love to get that link to the install image if you're still offering. thanks much! -rep
  3. Asus P5N7A-VM

    um, because it requires an existing hackintosh to get the install for this mobo working, or am i missing something? it wouldn't be a big deal if my main hackintosh rig wasn't down right now, and i'm posting this from, *shudders*, windows. so until i get my current hackintosh working again, i can't setup this asus board, or if you're suggesting you can install this without a working hackintosh, please tell us. thanks!

    Good to know, that may satisfy my issue too as I used verified CAS4 ram too. Oh well, it was cheap and I can use it in another box.
  5. Asus P5N7A-VM

    I agree, a Boot 132 method of install would be awesome. Diabolik?
  6. Asus P5N7A-VM

    hmm, yes, brief tutorial may be nice then, since it seems as though there is a lot of scattered/misinformation surrounding this board specifically. especially considering several have gotten it to work 100% with boot132.

    from everything i've read in this thread, it seems that this is THE 9300 board to get. not sure about the recent string of 9400 and upcoming boards. that nvidia "ion" board looks to be the next big thing. i just couldn't wait that long.

    um, didn't know such a thing existed... searching for this list even as we speak. EDIT UNO: looks like the closest thing here is supported: F2-6400CL4D-4GBPK. going to do some more digging. EDIT DOS: grrr, ok so i guess its not officially on that list. i'll give it a shot, and if it is no good, i'll just RMA/exchange it for one that is on the list. booooooooooo. i reckon this could definitely be a problem if the ram isn't 100% verified. too bad, because i've always had great luck with g.skill branded ram. better than past corsair and mushkin stuff i've had. live and learn i guess.
  9. Asus P5N7A-VM

    Well, this isn't really anything useful, other than to say, thanks to ALL of you in this thread, since there IS hope of a successful install, despite some of the troubles a few of you are having, i decided to take the plunge and picked up the following: LIAN LI Black Aluminum PC-C37B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case - Retail ASUS P5N7A-VM LGA 775 NVIDIA GeForce 9300/nForce 730i HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail SeaSonic S12 II SS-380GB 380W ATX12V V2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Retail Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E8400 - Retail G.SKILL HK 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBHK - Retail Pioneer 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black SATA Model DVR-216DBK - OEM I've got a Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB I'll be putting in it too. Should be a pretty killer HTPC to run Boxee/Plex on, if you ask me. Picking up a copy of 10.5.6 retail soon and will be coming back here to follow the instructions youse guys have put up here. Hack #2 here I come!

    grats! i'm curious how diabolik has everything working but you're having those issues. i'm about to pull the trigger on this board i think.. before i do; any of you hooked this up to a 1080p tv? with onboard video, it's all good?
  11. hyperx! please don't say that. there just aren't many mostly working mATX boards out there. i've been looking to build an update to date htpc, and figured i'd base it around this mobo since its pretty new still and seems (seemed) to have activity in the thread.. if you don't turn on sleep in the bios or in the power settings of system preferences, there shouoldn't be a problem, right? just hope activity doesn't completely die off on this thread since i'm about to buy this board and setup boot132+chameleon.
  12. OSX86 HTPC

    i have nearly this identical setup, just beefed up with 8gb of ram, beefed up vid card, and it's my main desktop, with 3.5tb of hd space. i run boot132 without issue and it has been, thus far, flawless. i'm actually thinking of tearing it down to build an htpc and getting the newer version of that gigabyte board so i can get more sata headers and a higher ram cap. that or, i'd actually prefer a microatx setup for the smaller form factor under the big screen. but we'll see. anyway, you picked a good setup
  13. Gents, I've been looking at the same thing. This product is what we'll need. Some other forumers seem to have had good luck with it with Harmony and stock Apple remotes: http://twistedmelon.com/mira/ I'll be ordering my soon.
  14. so glad to hear that it has past the weaksauce and onetrack tests. mine should be here soon (i hope). though i'm sticking with the ds3l for now. i haven't needed the encore gigabit card yet, and i don't mind patching the audio each time either. just full safe updating is a benefit for me, that and of course retail leopard installation. thanks again for the mini-review weaksauce.
  15. Small note, in case anyone runs into this same problem with their hackintosh and textmate.. For some unknown reason on a FRESH install of leopard, there was a broken symlink to textmate "mate" in /usr/bin. So when you try and manually create a symlink and enter your root pw, it fails, same with using textmate's terminal usage "create link" button. Just delete the broken symlink and recreate using textmate's button i just mentioned. Anyway, that's that. enjoy. Props and much respect to Weaksauce for this guide.
