    Default GA-EP45-UD3P Success story and tutorial

    First off, let me say that you will NOT find an easier guide to follow!

    After researching my build for almost a month I decided on the following hardware.

    GA-EP45-UD3P
    Intel Q9400 quad core 2.66GHz
    4GB G Skill RAM
    WD SATA HD
    Samsung and LG SATA DVD drives
    ATI Radeon 2600XT (Sapphire) 512MB (took this out of my windows machine.)

    Once i decided on my motherboard, i began searching for other success stories. I came across a guide prepared by Auzigog. It is a very simple, well layed out guide that is only seven steps long.

    I used a burned copy of a 10.5.6 RETAIL disc.

    The only thing i had to do differently was install natit.kext because of my ATI card.

    Everything works great, sleep, restart, shutdown, ethernet, video, and audio.

    Only issue ive noticed so far is that when i come out of sleep i have to renew my DHCP lease....no big deal.

    All credit goes to Auzigog and the guys he thanks in his tutorial.

    Here is a link to his blog with the guide.

    Blog of Auzigog Hackintosh 2.0

    What To Expect

    This guide will let you install OS X Leopard 10.5.6 from the retail disk (straight from Apple!). You’ll have a system with full functionality and minimal hacking.

    I have not tested this setup extensively since I got it working, so I make no guaranty about it’s stability. The way I went about it isn’t the cleanest, but it works. I’m hoping weaksauce12 will release a Universal OSx86 Installer plug-in for this board in the near future. Keep an eye out on my blog for another post involving that installation.
    Hardware

    Here is the hardware I used. You can poke around the InsanelyMac forums to find instructions for your own system.
    Same hardware I used in version 1, except with a new motherboard. The motherboard is the most important factor in a hackintosh as long as you have an Intel processor and an NVIDIA video card.

    * Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P (newegg)
    * Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Conroe 2.33GHz (newegg)
    * Video Card - EVGA GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit PCI Express x16 (newegg)
    * RAM - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin 800 (PC2 6400) (newegg)
    * DVD - SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R SATA (newegg)
    * Power Supply - COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus 460W (newegg)
    * Case - COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower (newegg)

    Required Goodies

    Here is what you’ll need to complete this guide.

    * Retail Leopard install disk

    Note: Please purchase the CD and support the Apple developers!

    * Download the handy UD3P-package I compiled for this motherboard. See “Credits” section below for all the original content in the package.

    Preparation

    * Burn grub-dfe.iso to a CD. Disco is a handy app for doing this.
    * Put the UD3P-package onto a USB flash drive.

    Steps

    1. Boot with GRUB-DFE boot cd.
    1. At the “fake darwin” screen it will say have a prompt that says “Boot:”. Switch out the boot cd for retail leopard.
    2. When prompted for a 2-digit hex number, press “fe” to boot to the Leopard CD.


    Note: I used retail verison 10.5.0, but any retail disk should work.

    2. Once you’re in the installer, format your drive (Utilities > Disk Utility). Make sure the partition type is set to GUID.
    1. Install OS X normally.
    2. When installation is done, restart (you might have to do this forcefully) and place the boot cd back in.
    3. Boot to the boot CD as before.
    4. This time when you’re prompted for a 2-digit hex number, enter “80″ to boot to your hard drive.

    3. Follow the on-screen steps to complete the Leopard installation
    1. When prompted to register, press CTRL+Q and select “skip”
    2. When you create your account, keep in mind you can only have each username once. If you plan to migrate files from a previous OS X installation, pick a different “Name” and “Short Name”
    3. Once this is done, it should load you into OS X.

    4. Install all updates (including 10.5.6) from Software Update. Restart when directed to.
    1. Boot from the GRUB-DFE disk again.
    2. Use -v at the real Darwin screen so you have verbose output. The update should apply itself during the boot process. When you see “MACH Reboot”, go ahead and forcefully restart the computer.
    3. Boot from the GRUB-DFE disk yet again.
    4. Keep installing updates and restarting until there are no updates left in Software Update.

    5. Run Chameleon_DFE_for_Hard_Disk.dmg (located in the UD3P-package) (Note: I don’t think this step is completely necessary since we install PC_EFI v9 later, but it definitely doesn’t hurt to do it anyway).
    1. Drag all the files in the “Kexts for Chameleon” folder into the “Extra Contents” shortcut in Chameleon’s .dmg.
    2. Run Chameleon_DFE_for_Hard_Disk.pkg to install the bootloader.
    3. Reboot with the boot CD. Use -x to boot into safe mode

    6. Use Universal OSx86 Installer
    1. Select the following options:
    * Do OSx86_Essentials as motherboard
    * Boot timeout to 5
    * Native resolution to 1920×1200
    * Install PC_EFI v9 Chameleon
    * Apply Ethernet EFI String (Time Machine Fix)
    * Apply EFI String for video card (I selected NVIDIA DeForce 7600FT 256MB for my card)
    * Click “Add extra kexts” and select all the files in the “Kexts for Uinstaller” folder.
    2. Eject boot CD.
    3. Restart

    7. Everything should be working!!

    Finishing up

    1. System Preferences > Sound > Output > Switch it to “internal speakers”
    2. Disable sleep and the “turn off monitor” features. For me, every time it went to sleep or turned off my monitor, it would come back with a blue screen.
    3. Migration Assistant
    1. When selecting parts you want to restore, make sure you do not select Applications or Library. Restoring the Library folder could ruin all the work you’ve done to get your system running.
    2. Press Transfer and let it go to work
    3. You can start installing applications while you wait. I have a helpful list here. Some programs might not expect to be installed on one account (your current one) and then be used on another account (the on you’re transferring), so use with caution.
    4. Fix drive icons if you wish

    That’s all!

    You should have a working system at this point. Please add a comment below if this worked for you or if it broke everything or if you just love me. Please share your own experience if it wasn’t based on my guide. Thanks to everyone at InsanelyMac for creating an awesome community of hackintosh-ers!

    I booted to the grub iso. When it got to fake darwin screen with "Boot:" I put in the retail OSX Leopard 10.5.6 dvd. I hit enter and then typed in fe. Nothing happened. It just went back to the fake darwin screen everytime I did this. Advice?

    I changed to AHCI in the Bios and it is still giving me the same thing. I have a SATA DVD drive if that makes a difference.

    I got it working now. When I changed to AHCI I saved the changes and didn't give it a chance to reboot on its own. I turned it off so it didn't save the changes. I have it workin now and I'm installing OSX. Thanks for your help!!!
