Installing 10.6 on Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

As the title says, I want to install 10.6 retail on the board Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR info here Its the DDR3 Variant of the Motherboard as I already have DDR3 1333 Dual Channel RAM from my current non-compatible mobo.


I know that 10.6 isnt out YET. A few days left. Im just wandering if anyone had any success with RETAIL installation on this board of 10.6 and if not that then 10.5.x RETAIL install.

This will decide if i get the board or not.


Thanks in advance.

I also have this board, and would love to see some documentation for this. Haven't yet tried using boot 132, but will do that as soon as I'm finished downloading SL.

Got it working on my board. Its a UD3P, but all bah DDR3 is the same AFAIK.


What BIOS settings are you using?


10.5 works on pretty much any Intel chipset from experience. (Used 975, X38, P35, X48 and P45)

    • Hello MaLd0n,   Could you please make DSDT edits for my new Skylake desktop Lenovo M910t    RunMe files: https://www96.zippyshare.com/v/5bgqAiga/file.html
        Thank you very much in advance!
    • Have you tried adjusting the Khz in midi pref pane or editing the info plist to suit your needs. that sometimes corrects weird noise behavior.
    • Hello Mald0n:

      Nice to meet you, I have created a post about my problem on High Sierra before and I was redirected to this guide by Allan.

      As mentioned in the post, I was not able to get pass the login screen at initial boot and the system could not shutdown occasionally.

      However I solve the high temperature problem when I replace the clover folder you provide on first post, currently the cpu temperature is around 5x-6x'c after 10 mins up time.

      Attached is the clover folder, ioreg as well as the send me app, thanks for your help!

      p.s. I notice that your clover boot efi is a old traditional grey apple boot logo, Is there a version of modern dark and white logo one that I could replace with? Thank you!
