I found this at Google Code
http://code.google.com/p/hackintosh...e-ga-ep41-ud3l/downloads/detail?name=dsdt.aml
this is a dsdt file and the poster says ok w ML

So you maybe ok for ML -and this would work w SL - you may want to use the older iBoot LEGACY and Older MultiBeast 3.7.3
get from downloads.

As to the video card supporting two displays
users state that many of them have had issues w the standard vga port not working only the dvi works w Apple OSX.

If this has a HD and a DVD - do make sure that they are SATA not ide - also suggest check for the latest BIOS updateand install
- if you cant see the AHCi HPET or S3 that is spec'd at Tonys web page for iBoot and MultiBeast.

I would suggest you locate a spare SATA HD ( borrow one from some friends) - something small and see if this works instead of deleting the Windows drive - also during the install remove the ( disconect) the Windows drive.- Use Sata Ports 1 for HD and 4 for DVD.

Once your have decieded to proceed w this please open a new forum post under the correct Desktop Support version for the OSX version you are installing.

Hello,


Wow ! Thanks you very very much ! :clap:


Thanks for the DSDT file, i will download it, i actually prepare my hackintosh, this is my first so i'm a little stressed.
For the graphic card, with HDMI it will work ?
My DVD is in SATA, this is good !
For the BIOS update i'll do this in the week, if i have the time.
In my PC i have a HDD (320GB) in SATA, i will format it.
But ... Moutain Lion is only avaible in the Mac App Store and i don't have any Mac with me, so i am obliged to use SL ? Can i burn an DMG file of ML with Windows ? Or i can use a ISO file of ML ?

Thanks again !
