Hi ShatPank81:

 

I've been running Snow Leopard on my SG41J1-RFG for about six months now. I used TonyMacx86's instructions to install Retail Snow Leopard recognized my NVidia Graphics Card and Sound Chipset natively. I've been able to apply Combo Update to 10.6.4 without any modification. I purchased Apple's USB Ethernet Adapter for native network connectivity.

 

I haven't been able to create DSDT and EasyDSDT doesn't seem to work so I'm stuck booting from IsoBoot CD-ROM.

 

Feel free to message me or e-mail if you have any questions.

Hi all

I have got my an SG41J1 Plus recently since my G33 melted down.

I have successfully installed OSX 10.6.7 with my configs below:

 

CPU: E8400 Core2duo 6M cache 3ghz

Ram: 8gb Kingston DDR1333ghz (i installed the mac with 8Gb on)

Video: 9600 GT (i also installed the system with dual screen on.. ahaha)

Network: on-board one cannot be detected, so i plugged in a TP-Link 1giga bit ethernet card (it was just small enough not to stop my video card)

HDD: western digital 1Tb

Optic drive: LG DVD writer

 

Instruction is pretty simple.

Same guide as tonymacx86 (http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-install-mac-os-x-on.html) and just really have to keep [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] up and install it right after 10.6.7 combo update.

 

Note: Dont go away when it is updating 10.6.7 combo update, i made the mistake once and it just blacks out on sleep and i could not get my machine boot without using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] even when i tried to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to setup afterwards

 

Then it comes to the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] options.

Here are the few points that made my machine success.

- tick on [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]

- tick on System Utilities

- tick on NVEnabler (ONLY)

 

These were the 3 things i ticked on my first go....

After installation... restart and you should be able to load up without the ISO boot disc.

 

After it restarts successfully, open [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] again and tick on

- Universal (under audio)

 

this will enable you for the audio on-board....

you'll need to setup the mic's input volume, by default i thought its not working ....

 

And thats it!!!!

 

main thing is... [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] by itself already allows you to boot up from hdd.

Do not tick on options you are unsure with or else its gonna ruin your setup

And all [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] settings are not revertable, you cannot remove them, but you can add on top...

 

Last thing is, the network card... as i mentioned above, i cannot get my on-board ethernet card to work yet.

I have plugged in another network card and it works.

If you have a beast video card, you might have trouble....

 

Feel free to leave me a msg, i am very new to MacOSx and also credit note to Danyel who helped me out during my setup!

 

Cheers,

Chris
