    Default Troubles on a GA-P55A-UD4P board.

    Hi all,

    I'm now on the third consecutive day of trying to get a hackintosh to work. So far I've ran into about a million problems (despite following all the "best" tutorials), but have finally got OSX SL more-or-less running on my new PC.

    The current situation is this:

    I can boot with iBoot and see the new OSX install; running this install brings me to the Apple "loading" screen, and after a little while the computer reboots w/o any messages. I can boot in safe/verbose mode (-x -v flags) and that brings me to the log-in screen - also without any apparent errors. I can log in, but am restricted to the 1024x768 resolution. Network doesn't seem to be working, so getting files on to the machine is a pain.

    Also, if I don't use the OS for 10-15 minutes, it hangs. This may have to do with it trying to turn off the hard drive or some other power-efficiency thing, I'll disable those...

    Any ideas for the rebooting issue during regular boot up? How can I get network (& other) drivers on there?

    Comp specs:
    - motherboard: Gigabyte P55A-UD4P (using the latest F11 bios)
    - cpu: Intel i7 860
    - ram: Patriot 1x4GB (got another 4GB stick waiting to be installed) DDR3 1333
    - video: EVGA GTX460
    - hd: western digital 1GB SATA3
    - legit copy of Snow Leopard

    Just swapped out the video card for my other PC's EVGA 8600GTS - booted up fine in normal mode, and resolution is now set properly. Looks like my new video card is the culprit of boot up issues. Any ideas for how I can get it to work?

    Still need to get network drivers and all that on here... not sure how.

    Were you ever able to get this to work? I have a very similar configuration.
