Installing Mac OS X 10.6.7 on a Gigabyte Motherboard with nothing else?
I have tried multiple times to no avail, I am looking to install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on my desktop PC, it is custom built I made it a while ago.
Here the specs:
Gigabyte G41M-ES2L Motherboard Rev X.X
Intel Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50GHz
Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset
3.00 GB Memory
SATA 500GB Hard Drive
Microsoft USB Keyboard (Wired)
Microsoft USB Optical Mouse (Wired)
There are no graphics card, PCI cards, etc. I use the motherboard for everything. I would like to install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on this machine. On previous tries, I have used the Mac OS X Install DVD (Vanilla? I guess?) and they work to install, my ONLY situation is the resolution is 1024x768 which I just cant work with, my Monitor is a BenQ HDMI 21" Monitor (1920x1080). This is the only problem. Everything else (internet, sound) all works, but this. It is so frustrating
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
As a brand spanking newbie to Hackintoshs I sure hope I'm not stepping on mine with this, but in reading through a book worth of posts, my recommendation is that you find yourself a graphics card, nVidia or ATI. The impression is that OS X hasn't any use for the embedded graphics and therefore there are no drivers.
I'm preparing to head down the same path you've been on with the mobo. Got a deal on ebay and have ordered a GeForce card. I might get back with you for recommendations as to your install process.
Luck and let me know how it goes.
