    Question Intel DX58SO - Anyone got it working 100%

    I'm looking to build a new Core i7 system (hopefully this week) and want to get OSX on there for Logic Studio.

    I'm looking to get this Intel DX58SO motherboard if I know I can get it working properly. The EFIX testers seem to be using it with great success in their beta testing, so I figure worst case I can get one down the track if I can't get it working with a free option first.

    Can anyone provide me with a simple collection of the kexts I will need for this board, especially getting the sound working?

    I did do a search but many of the threads on this board had been abandoned after a while with little comprehensive info.

    Stu

    Default Snow Leopard working with efi boot and chameleon

    oh SHIT!!! so I got a retail copy of snow leopard working on the dx58so with chameleon and efi boot!
    I followed this tutorial yesterday and now have my system running smoothly with snow leopard. I followed this tutorial
    [GUIDE] Retail Snow Leopard Install on Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 (Core i7) Mobo - InsanelyMac Forum
    you need 2 drives to accomplish this but I can say it works! just replace the appropriate kext and you will have sound, ethernet, and video card working. My system

    Intel DX58SO Motherboard
    EVGA Nvidia 9800 GT
    OCZ 1333MHZ RAM

    If you were having as much trouble as me getting this mobo working with snow leopard, then you are stoked now, this is a very easy to follow tutorial that is pretty much completely automated, I dont know much of anything about efi and dsdt and all that other mumbo jumbo and I was able to use this tutorial and get it all working. I hope this helps many more DX58SO users out there since it is a very superior mobo.

    We have recently released the Ultimate Snow Leopard bootloader system on DX58SO and other select Intel boards here:
    Convert It 2 Mac.com - Allowing you to convert the tools you need and use to Mac!


    Ultimate Snow Leopard includes bootable RAID support, automatic detection of multiple Nvidia cards and essentially full, native support of the DX58SO (with the exception of analog surround sound output).
