Hello, I've been trying to installation any version of OS X on my P5N-D motherboard, however I FAILED on all attempts. Now I did tons of researching and found that people actually got this working, and I tried everything I've read but mine is still not working. I would like to know the correct BIOS SETTING to use and the right chipset...etc.

 

my specs.

ASUS P5N-D

CORE 2 QUAD - Q8300 2.5GHz

GEFORCE 9500 GT 1GB

SONY CD/DVD BURNER - SATA

2GB KINGSTON

1TB WESTERN DIGITAL - SATA

 

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!! THIS WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

 

ANY INFORMATION GIVEN IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED

What exactly seems to be the problem? Can you enter installation with -x switch for safe mode?

 

Let's see what you have tried so far. I'm no expert but I'll try to help.

 

You should run each of the steps (installation, first boot up etc.) with -v (verbose mode, for system messages output) so if you encounter an error and a system halt, you can take a photo of your screen and attach it here so experts and other helpers can help you diagnose the problem and in the end - remove it.

 

So, at the Chameleon boot prompt, hit any key to enable typing, then type:

 

-v -x

 

Then reply here with your progress/errors. Also, be sure your bios settings are correct. Storage mode - AHCI, enable ACPI, enable legacy USB support. Play a bit with the combination of those settings.

 

edit:

 

I would also like to suggest maybe try some of the other distributions? iDeneb 1.6 Lite? iAtkos v7 etc.

 

Cheers and good luck!
