Gigabyte EP45T-DS3R Success story
My Hackintosh is finally complete. Here are my hardware details, the kexts i used and some pictures.
Release: IPC 10.5.6 Live DVD (required Dual Layer DVD)
Installed with Restart/Power off fix using the default kernel (select nothing in kernel options). Select ICH10 and ICH fix option.
-Old HP pavilion case, painted black w/ white Apple water-slide decals.
-Gigabyte GA-EP45T-DS3R - ACHI on in Motherboard Bios.
-Onboard ALC889a Sound (All inputs outputs working, including digital) used the method found here: InsanelyMac Forum > Leopard Audio Problem - ALC889A Chipset using mimimi's post at the bottom of the page.
-Onboard Realtek LAN (working with Realtek option in IPC)
-BFG 8800 GTS 640MB OC (using NVdarwin 640mb option in IPC gives QE/CI)
-2GB x 2 DDR3 1333 mhz Patriot Memory
-Intel Q9550 cpu
-500GB Seagate SATA HDD
-Samsung SATA DVD
-Logitech S-510 Wireless KB and Mouse
-ATI Remote Wonder Plus - Works great with Plex
I have dual montior video setup with the secondary going to my HD DLP TV. I modified a vga cable with a cat5 to extend my primary monitor about 8 feet from the system. This way i can use plex and watch movies etc. on my HDTV while still being able to use my primary monitor.
Feel free to post any comments/questions.
