    Default p5gc-mx/1333 successful os x install

    hi i am new to this site and new to the mac os. i got a wild hair and decided to put os x on a spare machine. i just wanted to be able to compile a bit of info on what i did and what i used.

    first off my hw is
    p5gc-mx/1333
    intel pentium dual core e2200
    Graphics Controller Intel GMA 950 is what is says it should have....


    first thing i did was change the sleep setting jumper on the mb from the default 1-2 over to the 2-3. but dont get confused like i did. it is in between the sata port 1 and the bottom pci slot.
    then in the bios changed legacy usb to auto.
    also changed sleep setting to s3.

    to start out i had get a few things.

    leopard os x
    transmac to mount a dmg file.
    empire efi v1.085 was very helpful!

    start it up with empire efi burned on a disc.
    then change the disc over to the osx disc.
    then after the install i had to use the empire disc to start it up again.

    then did post install stuff. used myhack by empire.

    then i used multi beast to add kexts. everything worked except for audio.
    i had to use the audio mpkg by skippy. this had the alc883 that i needed.


    it was pretty straight forward but any directions i found online werent as helpful as i would have liked.

    im probably gonna dualboot win7 now. i guess i will post how it goes.

    Default

    i couldnt wait. went ahead with a dual boot. works freakin awesome!

    was kind of a pain though. when i loaded on the win 7 disc it wouldnt go into the repair console. and also wouldnt let me install on the partition i had set aside for it (which by the way was already formatted fat32 from the mac disc utility). so i had to use the disc utility and erase that partition. then i referred to Dual-boot a hackintosh with Snow Leopard and Windows | TheBackpackr.com
    once i used the repair console to make the drive active. all i had to do was erase/create partion, format, then install windows 7. after that i used the program mentioned in the article above easybcd 1.7.2 and now dual boot amazingly!!! if anyone using the same hardware as me has any questions then feel free to email me at loozerboyz@hotmail.com

    and also thanks to everyones threads here that i referred to every now and then.
