MOBO: Asus Striker Extreme

Chipset: nForce 680i

CPU: Q6600 @ 2.7GHz

See here.............check to ensure that with > 2GB RAM on your MOBO you are

 

1. Using maxmem=3072 in com.apple.Boot.plist with either of MedDevil's AppleNForceATA kexts, i.e. Original kext, or Test kext for SATA DVDRWs......OR

 

2. Using slashack's AppleNForceATA.kext v0.1 with no maxmem flag set under Kernel Flags in com.apple.Boot.plist.....

 

3. Check that IOATABlockStorage.kext in IOATAFamily.kext has the same version number as IOATAFamily.kext........

 

Even with slashack's AppleNForceATA v0.1 kext installed, which enables use of >3GB RAM without any problems for 99% of the time, there still seem to be some apps that cause memory addressing kernel panics either during installation or during large data file transfers e.g. video/audio files......

 

If you temporarily boot manually with -v cpus=1 maxmem=2048 when installing the app, or for doing large data file transfers e.g. video/audio files......and then afterwards, you reboot as normal.......everything is generally OK again, including making full use of all CPU cores by running applications now using the transferred data...... :rolleyes:

 

It is not as bad as you think.....data transfers do not need all 4 cores running at 100%, since it is the MCP that is controlling the data transfer rate from USB/Firewire/eSATA/SATA/IDE to SATA/IDE and vice versa....see chipset architectures in my two nForce chipset threads....... :D
