Intel DQ57TM & Mac OSX Snow Leopard

For some inexplicable reason I am unable to post a (helpful) response to this thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=225133




Basically Snow Leopard runs near well perfectly on an Intel DQ57TM motherboard when installed with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/ibo...ac-os-x-on.html). just follow the instructions. Probably the only issue are going to be in regard to multi-boot situations (i.e. with linux, install grub on the root linux partition rather than the HDD's boot sector, and with Windows: install osx & [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] last). Read the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] instructions though - in fact print them out as you'll probably need to refer to them. Specifically: take notice on the instructions for changing the boot & install media as pressing Return will cause a kernal panic/crash. Instead, change the dvd and press f5


some minor issues: my xeon identifies as an i7 (so no hyperthreading or virtual-cores), power-management needs sorting (still doesn't standby/wake properly), and whilst I have sound, the quality is basic as I don't have the right kernal extension And oddly enough, my aluminium apple keyboard has dead keys (such as eject and volume) [These issues are to do with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and kernel extensions - confusing things that others understand (Note: apparently intel boards don't seem to generate a DSTS file), so if anyone can advise on how to generate/alter one]


But generally this board works well. OSX is fast and smooth. My gpu is an nvidia 9600gt which is recognised. the latestest nvidia driver works on all boards work on all gpus down to 9400's. My network card is correctly identified too, As are all HDDs.
