OSx86 on MSI P35 Neo

Hi,
I've tried to build a Mac (OSX leopard 10.5) pc but, each time I press a button to start the setup from the dvd it load 3 or 4 tings and then the computer rebooted himself.

The specs of the pc are:

mainboard - MSI P35 Neo
processor - intel core 2 Quad Desktop (45nm)
video card - MSI NX8600GTS (nvidia geforce, 512mb DDR3)
harddisk - 250GB (Maxtor)

Does anyone know what this means or what I did wrong?

With kind regards,
Black

Hi blackshadeV, welcome to the forum.

I've done some quick research and looks like the MSI P35 based boards won't work with os x without flashing a modified bios.

Here's the thread with more info and a possible solution. Good luck!

Mac OS X 10.6.4 Retail || Intel Core2 Duo E8200 2.66GHz || Gigabyte G31M-ES2L || GeForce 6600 GT 128MB || Realtek ALC883 Audio || Realtek RTL8169 LAN || Samsung SpinPoint F1 1TB HD || Sony Dual Layer IDE DVD RW DW-D22A || Apple Aluminium Keyboard || Mighty Mouse

MacBook Pro || 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo || 200Gb HD || 2Gb Ram || NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT

iPhone 4 || 16Gb

Hi there!

If you donīt wan t flash your bios, you can try the DSDT patch by mackerintel for the chameleon bootloader.
Install OSX Leopard with cpus=1, Download the atached file, defrag, open a terminal and type :
Code:
Sudo -s
(password)

cd /users/" your user"/desktop/DSDT
./GetDSDT
./iasl -d dsdt.dat
dont close the terminal, now edit the dsdt.dsl with a texteditor like textmate and look for something like this
Code:
Scope (_PR)
               {
                   Processor (P001, 0x01, 0x00000810, 0x06) {}
                   Alias (P001, CPU1)
               }
delete all the "Alias ...." lines and save the file.

Code:
 Scope (_PR)
               {
                   Processor (P001, 0x01, 0x00000810, 0x06) {}
               }
now type

Code:
./iasl -f dsdt.dsl
now, rename dsdt.aml to DSDT.aml and move it into the root of macos partition.
If your Leopard installer is based on chameleon bootloader, replace the chameleon "boot" file loacted into the root partiton, for the patched one, located into the attached file, if the installer donīt use chameleon, install it and repeat this last step.

It works perfect with Asus P45 series, and it works perfect with the KP caused by the 1.2.2 version of the AppleRTC extension included with the new leopard DVD for the new macbooks 10.5.5 (9F20808) (ASUS & Gigabyte tested & passed)

in order to prevent the KP edit the dsdt.dsl and look for

Code:
 Device (RTC0)
                {
                    Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00"))
                    Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate ()
                    {
                        IO (Decode16,
                            0x0070,             // Range Minimum
                            0x0070,             // Range Maximum
                            0x00,               // Alignment
                            0x02,               // Length
                            )
                        IRQNoFlags ()
                            {8}
                     })
               }
delete the "IRQNoFlags ()" & "{8}"

Code:
 Device (RTC0)
                {
                    Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00"))
                    Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate ()
                    {
                        IO (Decode16,
                            0x0070,             // Range Minimum
                            0x0070,             // Range Maximum
                            0x00,               // Alignment
                            0x02,               // Length
                            )

                     })
                }
