Step 1:


You must have BIOS 1.6 installed. The newest version 1.8 does NOT work, ACPI issues. 1.7 may work, but I haven't tried it.



Advanced options

I'm not using the Jmicron for IDE or SATA so I turn it off its in advanced options [iDE,RAID, Disabled], but Kalyway 10.5.1 does support it and they work beautifully.


Virtualization must be disabled.


Multi-core ON


VER 1.4


Integrated devices options

The LAN is probably a lot of work, so I wouldn't bother. Just get a cheap 3COM905 for like a dollar on ebay. I have this disabled.

Sound can be on and used with azailia.


1394 aka Firewire may be needed to get past the welcome loop. Keep it in mind if that is your problem.


the harddrive sub options set the it to AHCI.


You should be able to run a kalyway 10.5.1 DVD if you have a USB drive or a SATA drive.


Update to 10.5.2 using netkas instructions and the 10.5.2 combo update.


I'm also running an 8800GT which works just fine with Natit, but I installed NVInstaller v41 to get 512MB support.


I'm also running a WMP54Gv41 Linksys Wireless PCI card. Using the Ralink mac drivers and a custom install script to auto close the ralink utility that auto pops up on boot.


You may need to add flags to the boot.plist, but then again you might not.


Feel free to PM me, I am not on a lot, but I help when I can.
