    BAM! Wow... it had to be the "Last try before bed" when it works.. Hell yeah...

    So if you've read my most recent post, I unplugged my Windows-Based HD and changed the pin on my Mac HD. I then powered it up and Mac ran fine (with cpus=1 -v). After the first run, I figured "Maybe it knows where to boot from now and it will just auto-boot from there now..."

    Poof, reconnected my Windows HD, ran windows, restarted and ran Mac OS... Everything seems to work fine.

    Now my next task is to get my DVD Burners installed, my audio drivers running right, and hopefully figure out a way to run on more than one core... having a Quad core (Q6600) running at essentially 1/4th it's potential makes me feel like I'm wasting technology... So that's pretty much priority number 1.

    Good to hear that, did you MOD the BIOS?

    didn't mod the bios. However when I went to update to iDeneb 10.5.7, my power flickered at the very end of the update as the computer was about to restart... went to boot mac and got a bunch of faults (assuming the update was ALMOST done as the power went out at the perfectly-wrong time).

    This morning I started fresh again, iPC... drivers... Still waiting for boot device. This time was an even more difficult time since chaning out my harddrive for the first smooth run of mac didn't want to work. after about 2 hours of changing things it finally decided to boot. I'm redownloading iDeneb now and going to install it again to see if it runs right or not.

    I'm still hoping that it helps me get all 4 of my cores running as well, since I've yet to get more than 1 so far.

    Man you wont get all the cores without MODDING the BIOS, cpus=1 fix its not to get all cores its just to use a default kernel flag so you dont have to type it everything single time, so MOD or Install Retail with DSDT Override

    flashed the bios with "Foxconn_P45AS_814F1P06_Modded_By_BiTRiP.ROM" and BOOM... all 4 cores running and running right! had to switch back to windows to get a file or two to the usb drive because for some reason I can't read from the DVD drives... I think I'm going down every wrong thing that COULD happen.. 1 by 1. Even so, when I get it figured out I'll post a screenshot for anyone curious.

    yep, just 2 small problems now..

    1) as you know the CD/DVD-Drives aren't being seen in Mac. top right's "Eject" ticker says "No Drives". I've done quite a bit of research on google and I replaced my IOATAFamily.kext, did the terminal stuff as well as deleted the Extensions.mkext (sp?). So far nothing's been working. Changed the order around on the Drives and same thing. but yeah, I'll keep researching.

    2) This one's new... since I updated to 10.5.7 with iDeneb, if I load Mac WITHOUT '-v' it goes to the apple Splash screen (White screen with silvery apple in the middle, circular ticker below). After about 15-20 seconds of loading I get a little Corrupted logo in the top middle of the apple. Almost looks like a "Do Not Enter" sign... thoughts?

    I am VERY happy with how the mac is turning up. Everything is looking really good. Finding a way to take screenshots and what not still so when I do I'll get one up here. =]

    Thanks for the help once again

    Edit: fixed error in part 2)

    Try to get package to fix your issues with sata kexts, theres one for ideneb to fix those issues in 10.5.7, or maybe try to ask here: irc.osx86.hu #hackint0sh, maybe nawcom can help ya with that or try this guide to fix your DVD drive

    Let's see. Desktop...



    Graphics...


    I'll get everything working in time. wooo :-D

    Thanks again for the help, I'm loving this thing so far.

    Edit: I actually came across that guide yesterday as well, I wasn't so lucky so I'm beginning to think I may have done something wrong. Oh well, I'm going to just continue to try things and try that guide again as well. I'm also going to try moving the sata connections to different priorities (Primary Master/Slave etc..).

    Edit 2: I'm running this with a 24" Samsung SyncMaster T240HD. Forgot to mention, but it makes it looks even better. heh :-p
