Hi, I also got a problem like this (like the problem which Corben2005 said before) :

 

osxleoprad132loadertx5.jpg

 

I had set all BIOS settings as like as slipttees posted...

I tested it with both IDE and ACHI mode,

One thing I found is my PC use the on board display but slipttees use Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS (http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showpost.php?p=339021&postcount=1), so there is a difference.

Does anyone have any idea for this ??

I have never read that it will work with "a fixed AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext", but you can try it. If it work it would be very nice for my, because now I need my card from my other Pc and if I want to run Mac OS X I can not run my WinPC :)

Thanks !!!

But I can't check the bios settings after install osx.

It is because I still can't boot into the install DVD although I set the BIOS setting like yours.

 

I read Corben2005's case, he could boot the DVD and install the retail Mac OS X after adding an external graphic card.

So I think my case may be the on board graphic problem and I still finding the solution for this...

 

Do you have any idea about installing Mac OS X with the on board graphic ???

Thanks !!!

Great Post! I was looking into this board to purchase for my next machine. I'm currently using an AMD machine and running Leopard flawlessly. But I'm stuck at 10.5.2 because I use this machine as my primary and don't want to screw it up by updating. That's why I'm looking to buy a new machine. Does this board allow you to use Apple Updater to keep current? I've heard problems with the ethernet not working after sleep. And problems with the sound? How does it perform, and anything that doesn't work/don't like about the install? Thanks in advance!

I have the same problem with this MB DG35EC (like the problem of Corben2005 & pkdill) ... the MB video not work and then installation crash before the OSx installer run after the verbose mode shows the "normal" messages ...

 

I prove to inject the new(s)(?) drivers for de Intel graphics AppleIntelGMAX3100.kext & AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext (of the first post updated by slipttees) to the kext.img of the original boot132 of slipttees ... and not work.

 

any idea?

 

O.K.

 

with an external NVIDIA graphics card works fine ...

no Audio ? AppleAzalia.kext Driver and remove AppleHDA.kext, No Ethernet ? use Intel82566MM.kext, PS2 Use NubPS2Controller.

 

thx

 

O.K.

 

Leopard is in the PC Box.

 

But NOT Audio & NOT Network ... and the PS2 Mouse & Keyboard not work, only USB.

Work in progress ...

 

Audio works fine with AppleAzalia and removing appleHDA,kext ... but mods are needed in the Info.plist of the kext by dependency problems with Libraries. In Intel82566MM & ACPIPS2Nub kext exist this problem, too. I mod the vendor in Intel82566MM too ...

 

I see the error with the kextload -v 6 name_of_kext (after a sudo -s in terminal mode) ... check the inconsistency load of versions of the libraries comparing with the result of the kextstat. Mod the Info.plist and reload then kext.

 

Finally PS2 works, Audio works (without input) & network (Ether) works 10/100/1000 ... next is the integrated graphics, grrrrrrr ....

Thanks to you, I have a working system:

 

DG35EC Mobo

8 gigs RAM

Nvidia 8400GS (nvinject.kext with KextHelper)

Belkin F5D8050 USB Wifi (Belkin kext installed with KextHelper)

Logitec Wireless USB Mouse

Apple USB keyboard

Chameleon boot on 500GB sata drive

Leopard 10.5.4

 

I am wondering if anything will break if I run Software Update to get up to 10.5.6?

 

If so, is there a good process to follow to prep the machine for this?

 

Thanks again,

Blackfish
