    Default MSI Platinum P45

    Hi,
    I have a Gigabyte EP35-DS3L and I would like to upgrade to MSI Platinum P45.
    What do you think about MSI Platinum P45? Is Snow Leopard compatible? I would be grateful for any help!
    Thank you!

    Yes it is Snow Leopard compatible (posting now from my Snow Leopard 10.6.2 install on MSI P45 Platinum, Q9400 CPU, GeForce 9800 GT).

    Update: Have created an updated install guide here (includes all required files except for the Snow Leopard disc, you'll have to buy that): Installing Snow Leopard on the MSI P45 Platinum - Revised Guide.zip

    A few more details on osx86 wiki: HCL 10.6.0 - OSx86

    Upgrading to 10.6.2 using Software Update was relatively painless, but I had to use netkas' NullCPUPowerManagement.kext for 10.6.2 and disable SleepEnabler.kext (even netkas' new one didn't work for me).

    --------------------------
    Edit 20 Feb 2010: The original guide is here for historical purposes: Snow Leopard For MS-7512 mobo and nVidia video.zip

    Hi, First of all thanks for your wonderful guide. I'm trying to follow your guide step by step and I have a question: you said in step 3. '
    "In the MacLoader folder, remove all items in the 'kexts' subfolder, we will replace them with the kexts in the '10.6 kexts' folder from the MS-7512 package". However, 10.6 kexts folder in MS7512 package is empty. Do you know where can I download these files?

    thanks in advance!

    Thanks for picking that up. I really should pay more attention to details like that. Here's the new link for the guide, this time with the KEXT's included: Installing Snow Leopard on the MSI P45 Platinum - Revised Guide.zip

    Thank you so much for quick update! I followed your guide and finally could install retail SL 10.6. I tried many different guides(most of them are based on gigabyte main board) and hasn't been successful, however, when I followed your guide, everything worked like a charm! Now I'm trying to follow your guide again to update to SL 10.6.2, however, when I select 'software update' in the main menu, only SL 10.6.3 is available. Do you think I can update to 10.6.3 directly from 10.6 using your guide for update to 10.6.2? Or do I need another set of kexts to do this? If you already updated to 10.6.3, could you please let me know how you did it and what I need to update successfully? Thank you for your time and help.

    Thanks for the kind words - glad someone was helped by the guide.

    I couldn't guarantee that an update to 10.6.3 would work (I haven't yet updated to 10.6.3). If you want to install the 10.6.2 update, then you might be able to download the 10.6.2 update separately and install it (rather than updating through the 'Software Update' menu option). Sorry I'm not much help with this though.

    My Snow Leopard HDD died this morning, so after reinstalling SL on a brand new HDD I thought it'd be a good time to try updating to 10.6.4 since I had nothing to lose.

    I followed the same steps as are detailed in my guide, the only difference was that I installed the 10.6.4 update instead of the 10.6.2 update via Software Update. After downloading and installing the 10.6.4 update (but before rebooting!), I used the '10.6.2 KExts' in the MacLoader package (minus SleepEnabler.kext), applied the files to the EFI partition and rebooted. Everything works fine.

    I do not use SleepEnabler.kext, since I have always had trouble with my system and sleep - it's always on anyway so I don't use this kext and disable the sleep options in the energy settings.
