First of all, thanks drmando for this Guide.Mac Os X on P5E + 8800GT and Q6600
ALL YOU NEED IS IN THIS FILE: http://rapidshare.com/files/86007773/drmando.rar
1. AHCI Enabled
If windows vista is already installed you will first have to boot into vista and go to your windows directory and open de regedit.exe. Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Sysyem\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci and change the Start property to "0"
2. Execute disable function = enabled
3. ACPI2 support = Yes
4. Intel speed step = disabled
Now you are ready to install.
I used the KALYWAY image to base my installation on
SATA HD Spinpoint Samsung 500GB
-)2partitions a OSX of 200
Data of the rest
SATA DVD-RW Lite-on 20x
ASUS P5E with an X38Chipset … see asus.com for entire hardware list.
2GB RAM GEIL
NVIDIA 8800GT OC MSI
After having done the bios settings I put in the cd of MAC OS X. I pressed F8 for installation options and put in a "–v" to have terminal view instead of white apple screen in witch you cannot see errors. Loading the GUI of the installation may take a while.
The GUI has loaded, and asks for your languague, choose one and continue. Now go to utilities -) Disk utility and format partition your HD to your will. Be sure to have a Journaled partition as OSX requires one to install onto the rest of the partitions you may choose like HFS or whatever other format you like.
Install the vanilla kernel with patch leave other options for what they are may only cause crash.
Complete the setup and reboot and remove the CD.
WARNING if after reboot you have error 0b NO WORRIES, its just that your partition is not active (YET) in that case just leave the DVD in it and let it time out and you will boot into leopard.
OSX now loads continue till registration then hit windows sign and Q to skip it.
OSX after installation
This is were the tricky part starts. First you have to fill in some info until you come at the registration form. Just press CTRL+Q (some keyboards WIN+Q or ALT+Q) to skip the registration. Mac Os X setup is now complete but graphics are standard, no sound an no networking device!
The network adaptor (IF IT'S NOT WORKING YET)
I started with the network adaptor. For my motherboard I need to find the kext or make the kext for a Marvell Yukon 8056 type. There is none … no problem I fix it!
You will need to download following file from rapidshare or from my zip file. gigabyte_ds3-4pack.1.2.dmg wich has the 8053 version of my chip included. I will use that one to make mine. Install the package and then reboot.
Go to the terminal and type following commands:
cd /System/Library/Extensions <-- changes directory
sudo nano IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Contents/Info.plist <-- edits file
(find and change: <key>Yukon-88E8053</key>)
(to: <key>Yukon-88E8056</key>) <-- change "53" to "56"
(find and change: <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053</string>)
(to: <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8056</string>) <-- change "53" to "56"
(find and change: <string>0x436211AB</string>)
(to: <string>0x436411AB</string>) <-- change "62" to "64"
(press Control-O) <-- saves changes
(press Y and Enter) <-- accepts saving to existing file
(press Control-X) <-- exits nano
sudo chown -R root:wheel IONetworkingFamily.kext <-- repairs permissions
cd /System/Library <-- changes directories
sudo rm -rf Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache <-- rebuilds kextcache on reboot
I have had a lot of problems finding the right commandline for the file. If the file is empty its not the right one!!! Google a bit and look around for different variations. These lines worked for me. IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Contents/Info.plist
Once Opened you will have to change the file like stated above using the CTRL+… key for controlling the edit program with controls stated downside in the box.
Reboot and network will work.
I have a 8800 GT OC 512 version of MSI. I looked around on the net and found out this was the easiest of all
Just install the 10.5.2_NVkexts+.pkg included in my zip
!UPDATE! ONLY THE BLUE EXIT LINE 2.1 SOUND !!!!
Take the AzaliaAudio.pkg from my zip and install it. Then run following command lines.
Step 1: (backup if you want too) Delete AppleHDA.kext:
sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext
Step 2: Edit AppleAzaliaAudio.kext for matching codec's proper ID:
sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/Info.plist
goto Realtek ALC880/ALC860 Codec Driver key & change the <string> to
ctrl + O to save ctrl + X to quit
Step 3: Edit AppleAzaliaController.kext for matching ICH9R HDA interface proper ID:
sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAzaliaController.kext/Contents/Info.plist
change the <string> to
Step 4: Refresh kext caches
sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/
Step 5: Disk Utility>Repair Disk Permissions
Step 6: Reboot
WARNING: in step 4 it might not succeed I just went to that directory and cleared the cache map myself restored my disk and rebooted and it worked fine.
YOU HAVE SUCCEDED!!
Congratulations!! You have successfully done what I have.
