    Yea, I used the realtek R1000 driver and my graphics come by way of an XFX nVidia GeForce 8400GS PciE card with 512 mb Memory.

    Here is where I am at. I fixed the kernel panic by capping my ram at boot time to 2gb. Now I have another problem. I tried to change my resolution (higher than the default 1024x768) and the screen turned blue and stayed blue until I restarted. So, now I have a graphical error of some sort. Any ideas?

    Unhappy

    Sorry, I haven't messed with the resolution at all. A Google search for your card revealed that some people are having problems with that card's vram in Windows. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Question May have found my fix

    My fix for my resolution problem was just a matter of switching monitor ports on my graphics card.

    But....

    I am still getting random kernel panics and they are really annoying because they ARE random.
    I have already capped my ram to 2048mb and have disabled one core on my CPU yet I still get them.
    I left my hackintosh running all night last night and I had no kernel panics. It just seems to happen when I am running programs (yahoo messenger, firefox, safari,) but never when the computer is idle. Is there a log file somewhere that I can copy and submit kernel panic output to someone experienced in them? and if so, where is it stored?

    Default Good Luck...

    One of the things I found when I first got into this is that when it comes to AMD hardware, keeping a Hackintosh running is harder than getting it running in many cases. Flip4Mac, for instance, gave me a kernal panic on my rig. Ended up switching to Gigabyte + Intel and no problems.

    If you get your machine running, I'd keep it as close to the stock installation as possible.

    Thanks for the long awaited response. One of these days maybe I will switch my MoBo and CPU, however, I just built this computer about 3 months ago so it will be awhile before I can come up with the money for some Intel parts (of equal spec to my rig) as they are generally more expensive then AMD.

    Cool AMD no trouble at all!

    Sorry to contradict previous posts, but I have installed 10.5.6-10.5.8 on numerous AMD systems (Phenom, Phenom II, Athlon64, Athlon64x2) as well as intell (P4, Core 2 duo) and in all honesty, have had 99% success starting with my very first Hackintosh (the 1% trouble I did have was not realizing my kernal panics at boot were easily fixed by simply using a boot-flag). Installing AND keeping Mac OS running on AMD is a breeze. I started with iPC 10.5.6 and have used iAtkos and iDeneb and they all work great. How did I do it? I read the Voodoo users guide for starters. Many AMD kernel panics can be fixed simply reading the guide. As for getting specific hardware to work, it's rather easy as well. First rule of thumb, do not expect any onboard video using the ATI 3X00 chipset to ever work. Sure, you can get video, but you will never get CI/CE to work, EVER! Sound, USB, Ethernet, and motherboard chipsets drivers supporting almost any hardware combos starting with P4(D)/Athlon64 all the way to i7 and Phenom II systems. In all OSX86 distros you will have the ability to at least choose a menu option to check out your hardware (System Profiler and on newer distros Hardware) if you do not know what your system has. Once you find out all the hardware specs, you are basically good to go. All distros of OSX86 will also have descriptions for all the drivers you need to install; match them up with hardware you have and viola! Just make sure you choose Voodoo 9.5.0 kernel and you are laugh'n! Installing OSX86 has come a long way and pretty much fool-proof. Like I said, they key is reading. Google is your best friend. Enjoy!

    GA-MA790XT-UD4P has Realtek 8111C/DL LAN chip, have you had any issues with this? Ive found some information on Insanlymac that suggest that this can be a bit troublesome.

    Cheers
