[HOW TO] Asus A8N-SLI Premium


2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I finally get everything to work on my System:


Asus A8N-SLI Premium / AMD Athlon X2 4000+ / 2GB RAM / 2x nVidia 8800GT 512 MB (SLI)


What I use:

Zephyroth Leopard 10.5.1 AMD



BIOS Settings:

IDE S.M.A.R.T. Mode enabled

IDE Prefetch Mode disabled

On-Board LAN 1 and LAN2 Yukon disabled (installed a PCI Network Card "Realtek" ; works great

If I activate On-Board LAN Safari/Firefox Downloads freezes and I have to restart)

USB 2.0 enabled

USB Legacy Mode enabled

SLI Mode: Single Display Adapter (Dual Display crashes NVinject at bootup / So I can use only one card in Leopard )



Installed Leopard on an old IDE 160GB Drive

without Graphics Driver and other modules/kexts


At the first bootup you have to start with "-X -V"


In Safe Mode you have to install the NVInstallerV.32.pkg

Edit the right Device ID in NVinject, GeForce, NVDANV50 and NVDAResman-kexts

and repair permissions


Your System should now be very stable ;)
