lol you must not have looked very hard.

found this in the first 5 minutes:

Hello, I finally get everything to work on my System:

Asus A8N-SLI Premium / AMD Athlon X2 4000+ / 2GB RAM / 2x nVidia 8800GT 512 MB (SLI)

What I use:
Zephyroth Leopard 10.5.1 AMD
NVInstallerV.32.pkg

BIOS Settings:
IDE S.M.A.R.T. Mode enabled
IDE Prefetch Mode disabled
On-Board LAN 1 and LAN2 Yukon disabled (installed a PCI Network Card "Realtek" ; works great
If I activate On-Board LAN Safari/Firefox Downloads freezes and I have to restart)
USB 2.0 enabled
USB Legacy Mode enabled
SLI Mode: Single Display Adapter (Dual Display crashes NVinject at bootup / So I can use only one card in Leopard )


Installed Leopard on an old IDE 160GB Drive
without Graphics Driver and other modules/kexts

At the first bootup you have to start with "-X -V"

In Safe Mode you have to install the NVInstallerV.32.pkg
Edit the right Device ID in NVinject, GeForce, NVDANV50 and NVDAResman-kexts
and repair permissions

Your System should now be very stable smile.gif
press F8 and enter "-X -V" then press enter.

It may have been a bad burn. Try it at a slower speed, and verify the burn if you can. I was wondering what would be the best supported sound card if I were to build one.

I have a quad and mobo budgeted in right now, so I am eager to try this out. Never even booted a mac.. It will have linux on it for sure but I really wanna play with OSX.

Then the mobo is supported, not fully but at least it works... At the moment I don't understand where those commands go because I have to receive the mobo and start installing Leopard, but I think I will be able to do it searching at this forums.

One question, SATA works? I have read that SATA in some mobos with 680i don't work properly.

Thanks for your help guys! (And sorry for my bad english)
do you have a PATA drive you can try?
