    Question Asus MA478T-E / Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition

    Hello,

    Has anyone got a Hackintosh running on this setup:

    Asus MA478T-E mobo and AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black edition ?

    Would like to use the built in ATI HD3300 graphics for now, and add a card later if possible.

    ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

    Where would I find drivers/kexts ? and how to manually add them if a current distro doesn't included them?

    Thanks for any insight

    Thumbs up Followup 01

    Successfully booted into 10.5.6 ! with this setup

    Installed xXx 10.5.6 OSX x86 release v.2. Running dual boot w/ Seven.

    10.5.6 running stable and very fast! actually blowing away the speed of my Macbook Pro!

    Wireless mouse and keyboard via USB working great w/o any changes
    Firewire recognized, however don't have a FW device to check it out yet

    Problems so far:

    no sound
    no Ethernet
    video locked to 1024 x768
    not recognizing the IDE connected Optical drive

    Since I'm a total newb at this, when doing the custom install of OSX I didn't know which kexts to enable etc.. so it's possible the right kexts are already in there I just don't know how to interpret them yet.

    Again this is an ASUS MA478T-E mobo

    Continuing research, and any help is appreciated

    This could be a great budget setup if can get everything working..
