Best Distro for Asus P5n-E nForce 650i w/ Q6600
I've tried iDeneb 10.5.6, the newest version, and am able to install fine but when I reboot I get the crossed out mac icon.
I've tried using different combinations of fixes but to no avail. My full setup is:
Asus P5N-E SLI Motherboard
NForce 650i Chipset
4GB GSkill DDR2 6400 RAM
eVga 9800 GTX 512MB Video Card
Built in Audio, Network
Intel Q6600 Quad
Any help would be appreciated.
Check this guide and good luck

I've seen that guide, and it makes my head hurt. Jesus if it takes that much work to get this motherboard working with Leopard I'll skip it.
This is what worked for me:
iPC OSx86 Final 10.5.6 V1.1 PPF (download the ppf5 iso and patched it to v1.1. U will find the details at PCWIZ)
Fixes: Seatbelt 10.5.5, Shutdown/restart fix, Dual-boot time sync fix, SMBIOS 667MHz(or 800 mhz)
I did not install the patched USB drivers. USB 2.0 works fine out of the box without them.
Use EFI studio(in osx utilities) to add EFI string for <your graphics card)
Run the 0.62.12n.pkg here for lan
nForce LAN driver - InsanelyMac Forum
Get the latest from here (use alc883 at add2)
AppleHDA Solution - Work in progress - InsanelyMac Forum
Go to sound preferences and change "Output" to Line-Out.
Video QE/CI hardware acceleration
Sound output( analog and digital)
USB 2.0 (not front panel)
Apple Software Update
Shutdown and restart (sleep does not)
This works fine with systems that less than 3gb ram, if you have more ram you need to use the AppleNforceAta.kext from here.
AppleNForceATA.kext(UNTESTED).zip from here Downloads - darwin-ata - Google Code.
Thsi removes the greater than 3gb problem but has issues with sata dvd drives.
Let me know how it works out.
Thank you for the reply, I will try it out and let you know how it turns out!
Thank you satish for your help, I was able to get it up and running with the steps provided. There was a few things I needed to look up in the process but everything seems to be working.
Another question, have you gotten the built in firewire port to work?
I can get the mac to recognize my video camera but it won't capture video in Final Cut Express and iMovie locks up when the camera is on.
