Hi everybody.

I have problems with the Asus P5G41T-M Mainboard, I downloaded hazzard version and MacOS 3.6 for intel only but it not work! Then I try Retail DVD with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].

My Spec:

Pentium Dual Core E5400 2.7GHz

Asus p5G41T-M

Genius Keyboard with Ps/2

USb Mouse

LAN, VGA and SOUND onboard

Problems are:

-Hanging at Apple Logo (Do nothing and boot w -x cpus=1)

Boot with verborse mode: Mac not set (I don't remember much but ofcouse it is, will upload picture later)


Another have success with Asus P5G41T-M LX in this topic, I don't know what is the different.


Thank for reading and support :whistle:


p.s: I boot with EFI and -v and get ACPI:System State [s0 S3 S4 S5] (S3)

You shouldn't have a problem installing SL on this board using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. If you have, it's likely that you need to review your bios settings and hardware setup.


It's important to keep hardware to the bare minimum (one hard drive, one optical drive, no more than 4gb of ram, etc...), and disable any onboard peripherals that may cause problems (eg, sound). Follow Tony's hardware and bios guidelines in the guide below. It worked for me with the same board.

My mainboard is a bit different so all bios settings set to default.

I disable LAN & Sound onboard and try to boot with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] -cpus=1 -f or -x. All I get is error or hangup at apple logo.

My disc have no problems because when I used it with my Laptop it's work fine.
