Flawless build:


Gigabyte GA-P31-ES3G Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.8Ghz 3MB 1066FSB

4GB DDR2 800Mhz RAM

Visiontek Radeon HD 3650 512MB PCIe

1TB Western Digital SATA HDD (Plugged in SATA0)

SATA DVD-RW (Plugged into SATA1, note I used all SATA connections)

550W PSU (bare minimum, 480W wouldn't start)

XxX 10.5.6 using the following settings:


Voodoo 9.5.0 (I probably could have used a vanilla kernel, but this had success on my Core 2 Duo Qosmio)


ALC888 (old w/ 3 outputs)

Realtek R1000

800Mhz SMBIOS checked

Zephiroth's time fix


Works like a champ! I forget how my BIOS was set up. If you get a still waiting for root device error you'll have to mess with the SATA settings in the Integrated Peripherals in the BIOS until it works.
