Yeh. I have a similar issue.


I wanna hack up my Asus M2NE32-SLI motherboard.


It has an nForce 590 chipset which I've heard (lots) doesn't work on Tiger/Leopard - well the LAN at least.


It would be nice to have it working rather that having to buy a new (Intel) 10/100 NIC PCI card.


I have a AMD 64 X2 6400 processor by the way.... currently running on Vista (hopefully not for much longer).


Cheers. :P


Happy New Year ALL!

I already install Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.10 Tub girl version into my pc:


AMD athlon 64 3600+

MSI K9N SLI Platinum nForce 570

Nvidia 7600GT


And all worked fine, except the ethernet controller it says "could not find a valid PHY".

I already tried to install all the nforce kexts that I've found but nothing worked, and since theres no kext for nforce5 I guess theres nothing we can do at this time. :P

I'm going to install Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.1 'cuz I found somewhere that my MSI may work out of the box... I hope ti will.

I let you people know.

About the nForce Issues, I do have one of them too ( an Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe, t.i. a nForce 590 ). I can install most of the diffrent OS Xs) Just Leo4All v2 do not install at all.

The system runs smooth, but I can't move large amounts of data, the system freezes very fast if I do so. This is because of the driver, which is for a nForce 4, in all the diferent versions.

The most easy to install is Zephyroth 10.5.2 it runs very clear, there are no interruptions and do boot well too. The only one neg. point of Zephy is, that there is almost no additional software, so I take it from Leo4All.


If you are having too many interruptions during installation, I'd recomend to use the flags -F -v. If this dosen't help maybe -f -x -v.


One method to avoid some issues with DVD-Drives is to "Restore" the Pkg to a small partion, and then installing from it.


About the most important point, there are no (good) working drivers for the nForce 5, that I know of.


Onother point about the installation, if you first use a IDE-DVD and a IDE-HDD to make the first installation, you can then - if the SATA Port doesn't work at all at this point - move the system to a SATA-HDD to run the system from there.
