Asus Rampage III Extreme

I've seen some people asking for help with this baord, so here it is:

1. I've used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]+Multbeast 3.x from tonymacx86, and retail SL 10.6.3 DVD.

2. Use legacy video card to ensure compatibility during install. I used ATI hd2600 (I got KP with GTX470)

3. My hd was plugged in to red sata port #1, and dvd was external via usb.

4. Use -x switch for initial boot from DVD, if you can't boot.

5. INstall according to tonymac's instrauctions (I used 10.6.6 update combo before [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url])

6. After SL combo install run Multbeast, and choose [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] without selecting any extra kexts, or bootloaders... reboot

7. Fire up [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and install Intell kext for LAN... reboot

8. Get audio from here http://www.kexts.com/view/609-10.6.5_-1 ... tched.html and install it as described in the package. Reboot

9. Replace your video card with whatever you want to use. I have EVGA GeForce GTX470 and I got my patch from here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index. ... pic=214219 and install it. Reboot

The only reason why I rebooted after each kext install is to see which one will cause KP...

I got pretty much all components working. That includes usb 2.0 & 3.0, and both SATA controllers. I have also loaded 64-bit bootloader from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] package enabling NVenabler, and it is working flawlessly. There are few details that I still need to address, and that is cpu recognition, and sleep mode...

Next step will be patching DSDT, but that one will take some time...

Good Luck
