    Default Should be simple right?

    I have the Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3p, which is one of the most notably preferred mobo about a year ago for a hackintosh system. I have two Ati 4890's which I can't find whether or not this is a supported video card or not, Ive found some threads on google that one guys says yes it works as of 2009, and older posts that say it didn't work. None of them verify whether or not crossfire works. I have 8gb of patriot memory, and SATA hdd's. I have tried the current Hazard install, a piratebay Snowosx 10.6.2 install that uses chameleon, and Iatkos S3 V2 install. All of them exhibit different results.

    I have made the necessary changes in the BIOS, the AHCI or ACPI whatever for the HDD's as well as changed it to S3.

    Upon install all of them work flawlessly, I can format the hdd, making it a Mac OS journaled, and complete the installs just fine. When I reboot, I take out the dvd, and the apple logo appears on all of them and that's where it stops.

    The Iatckos version shows the apple logo for about 3 minutes with the swirling timer thing, and then I get pixel fragmentations on the screen, so I figure its the graphics card not supported, however I DID select ATI drivers in the install options.

    the Hazard version shows the booting splash screen then within 10 seconds it says to just restart that it had an error, but it doesnt resolve anything

    the SnowosX from piratebay shows the apple logo for a quarter of a second then all this text pops up and the box pops up to say to restart because of an error, the last text in the background says something about sleep something or other, which I read somewhere I needed to disable it.

    Im not trying to install a dual boot, however that would be preferable, at this point I just want it to work.

    I would even be willing to trade my 4890 for a compatible Nvidia card if thats what the problem is.

    Any help guys/gals?

    I live in southern california and would be willing to just have someone who is experienced in hackintosh systems just come over and handle this bad boy for me.

    Well I have traded a 4890 for a 9800 GTX+ which should be here by next week, hopefully this works better!
