MSI P45 Platinum FULL WORKING!

Recommended Posts

1rst: Thnx to Stellarola (you rox man!) on help me for the patched dsdt.aml and the mod minivoodoopower.

 

Lets go...I used the last bios 1.6

 

BIOS: load the default and enable the SATA ichr10 as AHCI then save, i suggest to disable what you not use for example, the I/O com port etc...

 

RETAIL INSTALL: Get the last xpc (see the post UEFI bootloader in NEWS section), and add in the root my patched dsdt.aml and the kexts in attachment

 

Insert the retail Leopard dvd and install booting from XPC USB key then choose the DVD player...be sure to disable the AHCI if u use the JMICRON devices.

 

Once installed the retail you can also use the last beta Chameleon as bootloader, is better because it recognize overclock and shutdown properly.

 

Drivers needs:

 

AUDIO: VoodooHDA (download it at Chameleon webpages install )

VIDEO: Use efi strings :)

LAN: See attachment RTGMac_v2.0.0.zip

SMBIOS: my own smbios.plist macpro 2,1 in attach (Quad mono cpu) working fine with chameleon...for xpc mod the setup machine....

Speedstep is workinf in chameleon using my kests (minivoodoopower modded by Stellarola)

Sorry for my english.

 

Hope it helps,

 

For audio freaks pro...UAD-1 PCI wont allow this motherboard to power off properly, (DONT USE IT IF U WANT A PERFECT POWER OFF),

Firewire Jmicron chipset here dont wont works properly with my Mackie ONYX firewire mixer audiocard, i had to plugin an extra pci firewire card with Texas Instruments Chipset, but it works fine with my M-audio firewire devices.

Logic 8.02, Cubase5.01, Reason 4, UAD2-pcie QUAD, tons of cr@k°d plugins are working fine here...tested 2 days!

 

ENJOY this motherboard....i had 6050 as geebench result, with a Q6600@3 GHz and 8 GB DDR2 ram!

LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA

LegacyAppleAHCIPortIntelICHx

LegacyIOAHCIBlockStorage

 

because the chipset ich10r from 10.5.7 is working out of the box.

Hi there, can you please give more detail about how you setup the UEFI bootloader on a USB key. I have this motherboard with an old patched bios (v1.1) would really like to update to 1.6 from MSI but dont want to lose 10.5.6 booting. im using iPC with vanilla kernel (basicly retail).

 

Can you write a little guide to setting up the USB key please? Also how did you get around the lack of ICH10 support in 10.5.6, this is needed to install right?

 

Cheers!

Try using iPC XL DL 10.5.6, mount the DMG and restore the install.DMG to usb drive. Use the new chameleon bootloader and add in macitas files from the post above for the DSDT. Not tried it but it might just work! I have this distro running on a patched bios. im writting this post from it.

 

Previously you couldnt install with this mobo becuase of the dsdt. something to do with beta version of 10.5.6, but this is not required for retail. iPhonetom made a bootloader for USB that might work too.

I think for you the problem is how to install the retail...because after that u can install chameleon..

 

i need find the xpc trhead then ill paste here...

 

Cannot use other methods because you needs the patched dsdt.aml

 

Cant find it, maybe deleted or lost after some problems in this board....

 

You need check some alternative that included the patched dsdt.aml for boot.
