Gigabyte G31M-ES2L Retail install

I have the Gigabyte G31M-ES2L motherboard. I think, this motherboard use ICH 7.

I need some kext in order to run OS X 10.5.6-retail (vanilla) :







Someone use a similar motherboard and help me to obtain the kexts ? I try to use the EP35-DS3L kext package for the G31M-ES2L motherboard, everything work but sometimes I get a kernel panic (I notice the panic on data transfer). I think this happen because the chipset differ (EP35-DS3L use ICH 9 and G31M-ES2L use ICH 7).


I appreciate if someone try to help me a bit!

Same here (except the ep35 part, I used UInstallers default patches), it's a bit annoying, I'm interested in any fix...

The northbridge HS get's very hot, I wonder if that could be the culprit.. Might be worth to change.


EDIT: It seems mine was maybe due to CPU undervolting.
