  • Install Method: Kalyway 10.5.2 and 10.5.3 Combo Update Package by Mysticus v1.3
  • CPU: Core 2 Quad Q6600 had to edit about this mac strings file to show that in the about this mac window
  • Audio: Worked for me OOB, with Kalyway 10.5.2 install disk (on the default driver install setup).
  • LAN: Onboard LAN requires installation of the forcedeth driver
    • still doesn't work though, shows as always being unplugged
    • used a D-Link DFE-530TX+ PCI Adapter and that worked fine
  • SATA: SATA works alright out of the box (as long as you don't enable SATA RAID) but freezes sometimes
    • suspects it's because the nforce drivers are still buggy
    • UPDATE: if your system has more than 3 GB of RAM, see if booting with the kernel param 'maxmem=3072' fixes the problem. [Using Kalyway 10.5.2, at least, it fixed the problem on at least one system. Perhaps the SATA driver only uses 32-bit addressing for DMA???]
  • IDE: works
  • USB 1 and 2: works but not able to mount usb drives until after you install the 10.5.3 combo update, don't select PCUSBGen fix, not needed
  • USB Booting: not sure
  • Optical Drive: SATA and USB Optical Drives are supported after 10.5.3 combo update installed
  • Graphics:
  • Nvidia 8600GTS 256 MB with nvinject 256 option selected with full Quarts Extreme and Core Image support (QE/CI)
  • Nvidia 8800GT 512MB; works with full support with Nvinject 512, with dual monitors.
No: select nforce kernel 9.2.0 following guide posted with efi enabled and when using combo update of 10.5.3 No

A8N-SLI NVIDIA nForce4 SLI
  • Install Method: Zephyroth 10.5.2
  • BIOS Version: 1604; Revision: Beta
  • Audio: Realtek ALC850 (Selected AC'97 from Customize list)
  • LAN: nForce4 built-in Gbit MAC (Selected forcedeth from Customize list)
  • SATA & IDE: Installed OS onto IDE drive without problems. Also have two SATA drives in Striped RAID configured through MediaShield ROM, but the RAID showed up as two individual drives in Mac's Disk Utility during installation. Cannot access RAID even after installation.
  • Optical Drive: BenQ DW1625. During the 15 odd times I booted from the DVD to install, after the first 6 or 7 times, the installer started saying that it could not read from the disc. This was happening when it normally would check the media for errors. So, I re-burned a new disc using the same drive of the same ISO(which I had initially created from the original (now problematic) disk). The new disc worked. Maybe, just a very fragile disc. But, weird.
  • Shutdown and reboot works. Sleep gives a blank (black), unresponsive screen. Have to hard reset.
  • Had to run the installation, with the same options, multiple times for it to get it right. After a few installs, I was getting the gray screen asking me to restart the computer. I really don't know how I got around that problem. I just installed again without changing any options. Finally, when it worked, I had my ethernet cable unplugged. In the Customize list, I had chosen the nforce chipset 2/3/4/5 kext, AC '97, forcedeth, nvidia geforce 10.5.2 and nvinject 128 MB for my 6600GT graphics card. Name of volume: Leopard. I chose the EFI v8 plus MBR bootloader to make the "Leopard" volume bootable. I'm using grub to choose between my various OSes. SSE3 9.2.0 TOH Kernel chosen from the Customize list.
  • Can only install from same IDE cable (CD and HDD)
EFI: Since I installed using Zephyroth's 10.5.2, I'm assuming it installs EFI by default? Yes, everything works without patching. No flags needed while booting.

P4M800PRO-M (V1.0A) VIA P4M800PRO + VIA VT8237R Plus
  • Install Method: Kalyway 10.5.2 with "sleep" kernel
  • BIOS: Unknown (will update later) but I did not have to mess around with any settings to make it work.
  • Audio: Realtek ALC655, only works on left channel out of the box. Use kext file from [10] and everything works great!
  • Graphics: integrated video not tested; using AGP card (128MB Geforce 6600GT) with NVInject 128 which is working great.
  • LAN: VIA VT6103L, does not work out of box. Attempted to install VIA Rhine driver, and adapter was recognized....but always got a kernel panic immediately after I tried to setup the adapter! Using a Realtek PCI network adapter instead, works great. I'm just a bit lazy, I am sure there's a way to get the integrated network to work if you really want to.
  • SATA & IDE: Both work excellent out of the box!
not sure? No, audio and network need to be patched.
P4M800PRO-M V2 Via P4M800PRO, Via 8237R Plus
  • Install Method: Use Kalyway 10.5.1 Intel Amd DVD. Use 10.5.6 combo update with netkas method. Netkas method works but you MUST enable root user in directory utility and type "sudo su" in terminal first before running the netkas script. Make sure you have voodoo kernel 9.5 installed BEFORE YOU REBOOT. If you have an nvidia card remove all ati*, appleintelgma* video kexts before reboot. IDeneb 10.5.5 also works but do not install any video drivers.
  • BIOS: 5/25/2007
  • Audio: AC97 stereo fully working with patch, otherwise mono OOB.
  • Graphics: Onboard video unknown. Used Geforce 6200 128mb AGP and 7600gs 512 AGP. QE CI supported with NVinject.
  • LAN: Works with viarhine.kext, but has dropouts and you have to restart. Use wireless USB adapter.
  • Even Fully supported PCI LAN cards Tends to drop out just like the on board, many people are having this problem just with this particular chipset no just the motherboard. Tried many things to get this to work but have not had success, some bios tweaks make it last longer but it still dies from heavy usage.
  • SATA & IDE: IDE works, SATA works. USB Works. Time Machine works with toh ionetworkingfamily.kext.
Vanilla kernels do not work because of via chipset. Installed using MBR. GUID works too on my IDE drive. Dual boots with XP. You might have to slightly increase voltage on your memory with this board. I could not install Kalyway 10.5.2 DVD at first and got an error "Could not validate Base Install". After upping my memory voltage by .20 it worked fine. Depends on memory probably.

LAN dropouts even using a PCI Supported NIC.

GA-EP45-DS3 Intel P45 ICH10
  • Note from someone else: I found this entry to be misleading about the audio chipset. Use the next one. You only need the two kexts from Taruga: HDAEnabler.kext, and ALC888 Address 2 AppleHDA.kext. You don't have to deal with any Linux dump. Putting the kexts in the EFI partition did not work since they had dependencies in the original kexts.
  • DSDT patch & ChameleonSM for pure vanilla setup.
  • Install Method: Chameleon + Retail Method - SATA AHCI Mode
  • Bios revision F8 (current)
  • All 6 SATA detected as Generic AHCI - Need to add Device ID to AppleAHCI for correct detection (3a228086)

ChamelelonEFI + Vanilla Kernel No - Audio need to patch..

New DSDT Method :- run the DSDT Patcher with -newHPET from terminal, edit the dsdt_fixed.txt in Debug Folder (search and replace 'AZAL' with 'HDEF') recompile the dsdt-fixed.txt (iasl dsdt_fixed.txt), copy the dsdt.aml to / - copy the chameleonsm (cp chameleonsm /boot). Before reboot remove/backup all patched kext files, run "kextcache -a i386 -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions/". Now you can safely reboot..


A simple sed for changing AZAL to HDEF -> sed -i 's/AZAL/HDEF/' yourfile . Then you can run -> grep HDEF yourfile" - to see if the changes are made.

GA-EP45-DS3L Intel P45 ICH10
  • Install Method: KALYWAY and IATKOS 10.5.2 works perfectly (need to set to AHCI in BIOS and install in first partition of drive). RECOMMENDED METHOD: Also works perfectly with RETAIL DVD or existing Leopard volume using Chameleon install method combined with LS8 patch pack (see links below).
  • Audio: Works perfectly with linux audio codec dump (see linked file) and Taruga's 3 files HDApatcher, HDAEnabler.kext, and ALC888 Address 2 AppleHDA.kext (to have full bass use AppleHDA.kext that is modded using limini's method)
  • LAN: onboard works only with SMB, AFS, and bonjour not reliable, use the card mentioned here
  • All 6 SATA AND 2 IDE Ports work perfectly OOB, including both kinds of SATA/IDE hard drives and optical drives. Need to set ACHI setting in BIOS before install. USB2 Ports work perfectly.
  • ICH10 working OOB

  • 30 successful installations reported for this new Gigabyte motherboard.
  • Comment by one user (most don't have this problem): I had to perform entire installation process with only 1 piece of RAM. I wasted several hours dealing with incredible slowness before I figured this out.

YES: ChameleonEFI or KalywayEFI, + Vanilla kernel No. Need to install Audio patch. Very easy to do. Use also LS8v12 kext patch installer for this board for optimal performance. If installing 10.5.5 Leopard update, you must install 10.5.4 first along with LS8 patch pack before the 10.5.5 update. Avoid NVinject kext since it may not be compatible with all NVidia graphic boards (NVinject may cause bootup crash), use the proven LS8 pack instead.

  • For those who want to update to 10.5.3, the "JaS 10.5.3 combo update" worked like a charm, the "kalyway 10.5.3 comboupdate" crashed and messed-up the OS.

[edit] XFX nForce Series

Hardware Name Chipset Notes EFI/Vanilla kernel working Fully Working w/o Patch
nForce 780i 3-Way SLI ICH9 (I think)
  • Install Instructions:
    1. Formatted HFS+ and then partitioned 300GB into Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) and 200GB into FAT (for Windows later)
    2. Installed using Vanilla Kernel, and using both Natit and NVInject kexts...display works fine in 1440x900 and other resolutions
    3. Complete Install and Reboot
    4. Once you reboot, go into Bios and disable second CPU core (or it will be unstable and freeze under heavy loads)
    5. If you are having root device not found issues or install can't find the HD to install on (SATA), make sure your eSATA is turned on for device 0. Interesting tip, don't plug the SATA plug into the 4 plugs by the graphics card, it has to be in the top plug on the 2 SATA plugs facing verticle out the front of the machine (if that makes any sense)
    6. Use -v on first boot if you want, but it was not necessary for me.

Get kexthelperB7 to install kexts from here if you want to try and get the Lan working or fix the 1 channel audio. This was just an impatient test to see if it would work. I have a Asus P5B coming in that will hopefully work OOB with minor difficulties.

Yes Audio needs patching if you want more than 1 channel, LAN needs patching

In terminal kextstat, and look for com.Ralink.driver.RT73 (1.1.7). If it isn't there try sudo kextload RT73USBWireless.kext in terminal. You might also have to add your ip settings manually in Network Preferences by clicking the plus sign above the lock and adding an ethernet device. It works ok now but i get some CRC errors and dropped frames, according to USBWirelessUtility. But i did download 4 gb torrents just fine...
