I have the same motherboard. Kalyway works good.


You need to set Jmicron controller to AHCI and disable all those features in CPU Configuration such as C1E, Execute Disabled Bit, Vanderpool Technology etc etc. Disable them all.


You need a SATA DVD ROM.

Boot from the Kalyway DVD, chose customized configuration and select only EFI_MBR. Leave everything else uncheck/unselected, they might cause kernel panics. You can install the graphics card, Audio drivers later etc.
