Leopard Perfect Install Everything 100%

Just wanted to share with all of you... If you want a hackintosh and you have an ASUS P5N32-SLI Premium NFORCE 590 Motherboard you're in luck! 100% Working!!!


My CPU: 1.86 Ghz Dual Core Pentium D

2 GB Ram (512mb x4)

IDE DVD Rom Drive

1 SATA 80 GB Hard Drive

8600 GT 256MB PCI Express Card


I have 100% Restart, Sleep, Shutdown, Video, Audio & Even WIFI Internet!


Step 1 - Get yourself the Kalyway 10.5.2 ISO

Step 2 - Burn to DVD at 4-8x speed only (no faster)

Step 3 - Boot up the DVD

Step 4 - Press F8 At DVD Darwin Boot

Step 5 - Enter "cpus=1 maxmem=2048" (without quotes)


(If you're having trouble with Kernel Panics enter "cpus=1 maxmem=2048" (without quotes), this has helped me with the Leo4All and Kalyway Versions)


Once Installation starts, go into DISK UTILITY and Format your drive and create a Master Boot Partition (MBR) (I haven't tried a GUID Partition)


When you go into CUSTOMIZE leave the defaults and choose these extras:

Uncheck the 9.2 sleep kernel and choose the NFORCE KERNEL

For video, just choose your appropriate drive (I chose the Invject 256MB version)

For networks make sure you choose the RTL8187_AP Utility one. (MAKE SURE IT'S THE "AP" ONE) along with any other drivers you might need.


Start your install (took me 20 mins) once done, it'll restart, then welcome to Leopard!

Boot time is roughly 1 min. Sometimes up to 2 mins...


Sleep, Restart, Shutdown, Internet, Audio & Video all 100% Working! with 2 monitors (on 1 card)




(Only other kernel I've found that works good with this board is the TOH Kernel from the Aitkos v4i DVD but you won't have WIFI internet after install)


Thanks goes out to Kalyway and everyone involved!
