    Default Asus P5QL Pro - What Distribution?

    Okay well, before i built my new rig I had OSX86 installed on my laptop; from a Kalyway DVD. Well now i would like to dual boot on my new rig, I have three partitions made, one for Vista, one for OSX, and one to share data between operating systems. I have tried many different releases, such as iAtkos 5i, JaS 10.5, Kalyway, and Leo4allv3 but none of them seem to work. I cannot reach the install screen in any of them. Before, I thought it was because I have an IDE DVD drive. But I purchased a new SATA drive and it still won't work. Here are my specs, and any help is greatly appreciated.

    Asus P5QL Pro
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4
    4gb DDR2 RAM
    Geforce 9500 512mb
    160gb Seagate HD-SATA
    LG DVD burner-IDE
    Asus DVD drive-SATA

    -thanks guys

    I would think IDE would be even simpler to get working than SATA. I have been told that it depends very much on your chipset whether a release will work. I have an AMD CPU and an nForce chipset, and I can get through the install phase of almost any distribution, but rebooting and booting up the OSX partition is a different story ... I'm still looking for one that works properly for my system. But I would search for osx86 and whatever chipset your motherboard uses, and see if any releases return any promising advice.
    System: Gateway GT5426E | Chipset: MCP61P, GeForce 6100 NVIDIA nForce 430
    Motherboard: ECS MCP61-P AM2 | CPU: AMD Athlon 64 Processor X2 6000+
    Disk (main): Hitachi 320 GB 7200 RPM SATA II | Disk (aux.): IDE 80 GB, USB 250 GB
    Video (main): nVidia GeForce 7600GT 256MB PCI-E | Memory: 4096 MB DDR2, 533 MHz, PC4200

    Hiya there, you have 2 choices:

    1- MOD your BIOS to get working the system with full cores and will run any distro after MOD.
    2- Install retail with 132 bootloader using DSDT Patch

    Here is your BIOS MOD.

    And check here to read about how to install retail

    Good luck and SATA ftw

    If you decide to mod your bios you can do it using afuwin, read my tutorial, the link is in my signature, just read about how to mod, the guide is just for hp pavilions.

    P.S. Dont forget to backup your bios

    Hi there I was wondering if you could help me out, for so long i have been trying to find out how to get osx on my P5QL PRO and stumble upon this forum

    Is there a guide somewhere or could you tell me exactly what you mean with you second choice

    I want to install from retail but have no idea what choice 2 means (install retail with 132 bootloader using DSDT patch), if I had a step by step guide for it I'm sure I could figure it out

    Thank you very much

    Hiya there, you have 2 choices:

    1- MOD your BIOS to get working the system with full cores and will run any distro after MOD.
    2- Install retail with 132 bootloader using DSDT Patch
