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
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.
