Recommended Posts

-My PC-


Motherboard: Intel D975XBX

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.67 GHz

Memory: Kingston 4GB DDR2 @ 667 MHz

HDD1: Seagate 320 GB SATA

HDD2: Seagate 500 GB SATA

Video: NVidia 8800GTX

PS: Powerbird 900W (modular cable system is very nice)

2 CD/DVD Combo drives of some sort...



Dual-Boot: Windows XP-64/Mac OSx86 10.5.4 (it's like voting libertarian)



-How I did it (briefly)-


Formatted drives using GParted.


Installed Windows XP-64 on the 320GB drive, then installed OSX on the 500GB using the JaS OSx86 10.5.4 DVD.


I then repaired my Windows installation and set up the dual-boot config using the chain0 method.


Voila! - but my graphics card wasn't right. So I had to install Natit Dual v1.0 - (using OSx86Tools).


After all of that, I was in good shape. Now, to get some good stuff on P2P!




-Some stuff that works-


Intel on-board LAN adapter

Intel front-panel USB/Firewire (came with the motherboard, I think)

Maxtor OneTouch III 750GB

Presonus Firepod - 2 of them, actually. Daisy-chained to give 16 simultaneous mic inputs.

Logitech Dinovo Edge keyboard

Logitech MX 3200 wireless keyboard/mouse combo

Microsoft wireless keyboard/mouse combo

Sierra Wireless USB air card (private labeled as AT&T USBConnect 881)

JBL LSR4328 Studio monitors (they have USB connections and config software. beautiful)


Cubase 4 and its license dongle. (legal copy, can you believe it?)

Any other Mac software seems to work fine, as well.



-Some stuff that doesn't work-


Intel on-board 5.1 audio



also - a joint never caused anyone to go home and beat their wife. they lied to you.
