Intel CPU, Nvidia Chipset, Retail DVD - Possible?
New to Hackint0sh, and new to Mac OsX, but definitely not new to computers (many years in Linux, and sorry, yes Windows :-) ).
I have an Asus P5N32-E SLI Motherboard (with an Nvidia 680i chipset), and an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU. I've tried to install the JaS 10.5.4 DVD, but had multiple failures - the failure varied based on whether I used a USB drive or an IDE drive, not surprisingly based on what I've seen. With the IDE drive, I received what appears to be the dreaded "still waiting for root device".
Ok, not to worry I figured - using the JaS was just a trial run. What I'd like to do - and what I --was-- thinking would be possible - would be to use the new boot132 loader and the retail DVD (I want to always use retail DVDs personally). However, based on my testing to this point, I worry that even the new boot132 loader that will load a retail DVD will NOT work with my machine due to the different chipset.
Am I correct, or am I incorrect? I found one post of someone using Kalyway distribution, which I assume has a hacked kernel with the nvidia chipset support, but I really want to use a retail DVD. Am I out of luck?
Sadly I leaped before I looked, and already ordered the DVD from Amazon (yeah, I know, I should wait for snow leopard, but...). However, if this won't work, I'll obviously just cancel the order - semi-fortunate in that it was backordered until next week.
