    Default I'm not sure if my config is compatible.

    Hello all! I was looking on OSX86 Wiki and my motherboard was not in the compatibility list (10.5.5 and 10.5.6), but can be a mistake of who made the list, so I want to ask you If my config can run one of the distros of OSX86 and if you recommend me which one I can install.

    MOBO: Asus P5Q-E
    Processor: Core2Quad Q6600 2.4GHz
    Memory: 4GB DDR2 800MHz Markvision
    HDD: 250GB SATA-2 Western Digital
    Video: HIS ATi Radeon HD4850 512MB

    I have Vista Ultimate 64-bits already installed and im going to try dualbooting (OSX86 & Vista), I read the HOW TO make dual booting.

    Thank you very much!

    Yes, I forgot to reply here, after posting this topic I was reading that thread that says about patching P5Q series BIOS, even knowing about my motherboard and its security about BIOS (it has 2 BIOS, 1 that is in use, and 1 that is a backup, if the use one have a problem, it automatically changes to the backup on reboot.) I am a little scared :/

    Well if you backup your BIOS it wont be a problem, check the comments to know if anyone got any error modding the BIOS.

    After 5~6 re-installs it is correctly installed, the only problem I got is the screen resolution stuck on 1024x768 and my correct resolution is 1440x900, and, there is no internet connection =(

    I've reinstalled a lot of times to select other drivers on Customize menu. But I've selected Marvell Yukon (i cant remember the model), my network adapter is Marvell Yukon but is not the same model (my is 88E8056).
