    Default pre-install question - compatibility check, please?

    I'm new to this hackintosh stuff, and I was wondering if an expert could lead me to a distribution I could install.

    My system is:

    motherboard:
    GIGABYTE 1156 GA-P55A-UD4

    cpu:
    INTEL Core i5 750 2.66Ghz 8MB

    vga:
    ATI HD5870 XFX 1GB XT GDDR5 2xDVI/HDMI/DP

    ram:
    4gb gksill

    I'm not hiding the fact that I'm coming from several failures: iAKtOS.S3_v2 rebooted the system during the verbose (-v -x / cpus=1) install. Same story with Snow OSX 10.6 432 GM v 3.5 ( I barely know what all these numbers are meant to )

    So, if at anyone, just looking at my specs, ring any bells, please let me know

    Should be able to install iAtkos S3 with correct boot options and BIOS setting.

    -x -v busratio=? (and cpus=1 or 4 if needed to)

    I don't have the busratio number handy, but you could google it easily.

    Okay, that's amazing, I managed to install using iATKoS S3 V2. The boot option that allowed me to proceed with the installation are busratio=20 + AHCI + HPET 64bit in the bios.

    Fixed a problem, others come out: at first boot OS says it can't find the keyboard. That's odd because during the install I was able to type normally to enter the label for the volume partition for example.

    The keyboard is a Microsoft (uh oh) Wired 600 USB. I tried to use a PS/2 adapter but same story. The screen says:

    "Before to start..."

    "No keyboard connected to the computer. Connect the keyboard now."

    (in my language)

    Before I try another brand (Logitech, lol?) di you have any idea how I could do my USB kb work?

    edit: after googling, I tried turning OFF USB Legacy from BIOS, with no luck.
