[GUIDE] P5KPL-AM Perfect install - Almost :-)

Hello all,

After much trial and error, i have finally made a near perfect guide for the P5KPL-AM Mobo.

Bios settings

BIOS USED 0506

Change ATA/IDE config to : SATA

Change PLUG&PLAY : Yes

Change Suspend mode to : S3
and ACPI 2.0 : Enabled


Essentials

1). It is ideal to have two physical drives (not two partitions on the same drive) or, at least, another Mac system to work from.

2). One drive must already have OS X installed and running.
This may mean using another Mac or installing a iDeneb as this works great with this board

3). Partition your "Snow" drive in Disk Utility using the GUID Partition Table (in Options button).

4). An 8GB USB stick / Flash key.

5). A retail Snow Leopard install DVD (Not the upgrade ver).

How to ...

1). First Download the file i have uploaded with all the needed files in it, including a DSDT.aml complied for this exact mobo.

2). Make the USB Boot key,

To do this we need to format the flash key as a GUID partition using Disk Utility on your "Other" OS X install.

After you have formatted the USB stick, you will need to add the bootloader from the Downloaded file attached.

So click the Chameleon-2.0-RC2-r640.pkg choose to install to the usb stick. After that click "Customise" and uncheck all the Themes & Kexts, we will be using our own. Then install.

After that you will need to use the show all files app in the Tools folder of the download i provided. Once shown, open your USB key via finder and delete the old boot file and replace with the one i have provided.

Then you will need to go back to the disk utility, click the restore Tab and selecting Mac OSX Install DVD as the image and USB Flashdrive as the destination, be sure 'Erase' Destination' is uncheck then click restore.

After this is done (20-30mins), you can transfer the "Extra" folder from the download file to your USB key in / (Root).



**IMPORTANT**

You Must change the apple.com.boot.plist file to suit your set up.

Now this is done reboot using your USB stick and on the install screen choose, disk utility again, and partition your Snow drive as GUID. Close the disk util, and continue the install leaving all defaults on.

After a successful install, you will need to boot into your previous Mac system, before starting snow for the first time.

Once in the old Mac Os, you need to run the bootloader again but this time installing to "Snow" drive but again make sure you *do not* install the extra kexts, uncheck at customise. Then again copy over the boot file to snow's root as before.

3). Now you can boot into your SL partition, using -v to check for errors.

4). Once inside Snow leopard you will need the Drivers for the LAN and Audio. (Drivers.zip) Also copy your DSDT.aml onto the root of snow.

Just run the .pkg's for the Drivers and restart. Then you should have a fully functional setup.

Also remember to edit PlatformUUID to include your own UUID from the Snow leopard Partition.

i welcome any Questions or comments, and sorry no pics!!
