    Where do I put those options? I got through what I could see on the DVD, including some hidden stuff under the F8 boot options, but I couldn't see anywhere to put those options...

    Ok here are some news :

    Managed to boot on iAtkos S3 DVD, with -v busratio=20 and install without a hitch. Included VoodooHDA, Ralink 2780 for USB wifi and nothing else than default options, first try I put too much I think and I cant see what was making crash between nvenabler or grapicsenabler.

    Now still have to try to boot. In progress.

    That is very good news.
    1. Use safe mode to limit kexts loading. Boot with -x -v busratio=20
    2. No video kexts selection. May have to use diff. kexts for GT230
    3. If still crash, don't select VoodooHDA. Ralink is ok.
    4. Don't reinstall over OSX, clear the partition first for a clean install.

    Now speaking to you over WiFi on Mac OS X 10.6.3, with -v (works even without any options!)

    Finally, iAtkos automatically seemed to detect my onboard wifi adaptor (Atheros, not sure the model), it appears as an AirPort Atheros 9280 in System Profiler.

    So:

    WORKS :
    Logging without DVD AND without any options
    Restart/Log-off/log in
    Atheros WiFi (smooth!)
    USB
    FireWire (even my professional audio interface (Presonus Firestudio Project) runs smoothly)
    Sound with VoodooHDA

    NOT WORKING :
    Video (stuck on 1024x768 - no kext installed)
    My i5 750 is identified as a Xeon quadcore in System Profiler

    Have some other things I'd need to look if it works?

    Glad to hear you got it
    Well done.
    Since you already there, and still remember how you got it. Take an update to 10.6.4 if you like to for that better kernel. Worst case is a reinstallation.

    Looks like you got your system done very well, with most hardwares supported, much better than many.

    You may just have to work on the video kext part. OSX CPU ID can be changed if needed to, and -v is just for verbose output for installation/testing purpose.

    Haha, I wasn't unfamiliar with UNIX commands as I built a Gentoo Linux (well... with a little help let's say) and tested 2-3 linux distros back then. I just installed 10.6.4, works good for now and everything still works.

    Never fiddled in CPU ID's, how can I do that?

    And got an idea for video kext? Found a post about someone, on another forum, who had a GT230 and used NVEnabler, but I can't manage to install it and make it work. I don't know, maybe I don't understand something. I kind of "understand" that I have to put my device ID in either NVDANVX0hal.kext or NVDAResman.kext, not sure which one... What do I do, hate small resolutions...

    That is good that you're at 10.6.4 (that is your goad as I mentioned ealier), and everything still works. You're lucky to use that distro S3 as it has much hardware support pre-made (also should be noted is iAtkos S3 is the very first release ever that is prepared well for officially updating issues, as you've heard many people got system crash/KP after using Apple software updater). It really doesn't matter which installation method any more after the official update since all system files now are different. The only thing left could be your kernel (it may be the old one still).

    If you were to install retail, maybe you would still run around for each hardware device kext and would have tough time with them.

    OSX won't perform well without correct video function (after all, OSX is a fancy os relying heavily on video performance), and also will slow down your system due to video display using CPU power instead of dedicated GPU hardware. Go to netkas.org, under NV section and there should be method/video kext for your GT230.

    As for CPU ID, the file is smbios.plist. There needs to be an correct entry for your i-class CPU.

    Thanks. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anything for my card on netkas, nor anywhere else. I tried to add my device ID in nvidia kexts, and now it shows the good device ID (0x060310ed if I remember well) in system profiler, but I'm still stuck with 1024x768. I should have stopped when 1920x1080 started to work after I installed NVEnabler with multibeast, but I wasn't happy as animations were a little clunky... Now I'm back, stuck again with a small resolution.

    Would I be better with Graphic Enabler, as it is a NVEnabler injected in chameleon, without having to mess with nvidia kexts?
