MSI P965 NEO with Leo! DOES NOT WORK AT ALL!

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

As an unfortunate MSI P965 user i tried and i can say that Leo doesn't boot with this board.

 

I tried the newest 'Leopard without DVD (direct to HDD install)' of course it installs (from within Windows) but IT DOES NOT BOOT!

Just hangs in the gray apple boot screen, computer crashes. You need a hard reset. Verbose (-v) method doesn't seem to be usefull bcause it crashes just at the very beginning while mentioning about loading some kexts then it hangs, even the cursor doesn't blink.

 

I tried all SATA ports, it's a no go!

 

And now i need a new board, and appriciate a really working mobo suggestion.

 

I have:

 

D820 2.8 CPU, 7600GT 256MB (vesa 3.0 supported), 2gigs of ram, Just need a 965 or up mobo (not 945 or lower) with working onboard sound and network card out of the box.

NO J-MICRON, NO J-MICRON, NO J-MICRON, NO J-MICRON!!!!!!!!!!

 

Really appriciate suggestions for a working board. Thanks

DON'T STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOARD!!!!

I USE IT, AND IT WORKS FINE!!!

 

Ok,

Kalyway - don't work (won't boot)

iAtkos - Same story

Leo4all - Same story

iDeneb - Yeah!!!! It works, choose in installation for all the chipset drivers, and all the kernels.

 

 

Use iDeneb v1.3: torrent it :)

 

Good luck.

I use it too. To be exact the MS-7235 revision of the board. Its easy to confuse about this, because Neo f V2 is different from it.

I just updated to SnowLeopard.

Runnig x64 mode.

Installation was pretty easy with this video tutorial.

I have a working copy of all kexts used. Note that after installation you have to move VoodooHDA to S/L/E.

I was fixed this problem at all...

 

Just use iATKOS v7, boot with ONLY -v flag (verbose), and follow the installation.

 

Select Voodoo 9.7.0 Kernel, Your VGA card kexts, and (Important!) Intel SATA/IDE kext.

 

Other all needed kexts are auto-selected, DON'T TOUCH THEM!

 

All drives MUST BE SATA !

 

Of course you can install Leo from Pendrive :) (min. 8GB)

 

See Ya ;)

I guess there is no way to install SL retail on this board?

So then, I am looking for iDeneb, which version?
