    GA-P55A-UD3P
    i5 750
    Asus EAH4870 DK 512MB
    G.Skill 4gb 1600 Eco

    sleep works
    audio works (only front out tested)
    QE/CI graphics (probably openCL too)
    kexts in extra/extensions:
    fakesmc
    LegacyHDA
    EvOreboot

    almost everything works good so far.

    follow the install thru usb guide:

    http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2009/11/os-x-snow-leopard-install-using-retail.html

    step 1: I used an external usb hard drive prepared in a separate osx86 leopard installation.
    step 2:
    step 3: use system-specific DSDT: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2009/12/dsdt-database-for-p55-motherboards.html
    step 4: skipped this because I'll be using a disk with an old leopard in it.
    step 5:
    step 6: did step 4. this won't work if you have 4gb or more ram. take one stick out and return it after successful installation.
    step 6.5: did this step but I think you can skip this

    at this point Snow Leopard is not bootable. I tried everything to no avail and proceeded to do the bootcd method. I used iboot ATI-2 to boot Snow Leopard just to see if it will work and surprisingly it did. Completed the installation. full ce/qi with network, no sound though. I didn't restarted because I figured Snow Leopard won't be bootable on its own.

    step 7:
    step 8: again use system specific DSDT.
    step 9: skipped
    step 10:
    step 11: restarted after update.

    Snow Leopard now bootable. no sound. used 889 kext here to enable audio. http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=870

    deleted kexts in extra/extensions except for fakesmc, EvOreboot and legacyHDA. I used multibeast to modify boot.plist, smbios and repair permissions/flush cache, didn't installed additional kexts or kernel.

    Restarted a winner.

    Thanks to tonymacx86, netkas and others and the whole osx86 community.


    new legacyHDA edit worked (only front out tested)
    iboot-ATI2 worked (final ati test version)

    Hi guys, I'm stucked at last step: enable AUDIO, it doesn't work at all. Please help me!

    My specs are:
    CPU Core i5 750
    RAM 4Gb Kingstone 1600
    MOBO Ga-P55A-UD3P w/F10 BIOS
    VGA Giga GT220


    Here's what I've done:
    1. Folow those steps: iBoot + MultiBeast: Install Mac OS X on any Intel-based PC
    + Using MultiBeast 2.0.4
    - EasyBeast for Supported CPU
    - System Utilities
    * Rebuild Caches
    * Repair Permissions
    - Audio
    * LegacyHDA ALC889

    - Graphics
    * NVEnabler
    - Network
    * RealtekR1000SL
    2. Video + Network work fine but Audio doesnt.

    >>> Did I miss something? I've tried this but havent got any luck.

    >>> Tried with UserDSDT from this video tutor but still stucked with audio.


    Comments and opinions are very welcome! :)

    Since you aren't using a DSDT you will need to install HDAEnabler for 889.

    Thanks! It works!

    First I deleted unnecessary kext in Extra/ Extensions except for EvOreboot, fakesmc, IOUSBFamily; then do the MultiBoot w/EastBeast, ALC889, HDA Enabler.

    I had trouble starting due to some settings in my BIOS until I went through and made sure it matched tonymac's screenshots of the install for the P55 series. Just a shot in the dark.
