Hi Tetsu,

Nice build ! :thumbup:

I was thinking of buying this mobo also, but I need the onboard wifi for my project.

Have you had any luck with getting this to work ?

Can you describe the steps you took to get the GT430 to work fully? I have 10.7 running, but the only resolution shown is 1024x768 with GraphicsEnabler=No. I tried booting with the 64bit Apple Boot Screen GraphicsEnabler=No, but that hangs on the Apple logo screen with the spinning wheel.

Now for some reason I can't figure out how to get back into my system:
-booting ignore caches still hangs as does booting ignore caches with GraphicsEnabler=No

Stuck on Apple Logo screen with spinning wheel thingy, and not full resolution, any ideas?

Hi Tetsu,

I have a similar case, Aopen xc cube ez 965 fully working with Lion 10.7.2 but I want to upgrade the motherboard+CPU+Memory. Did you have any problem to fit the mini-itx with the original motherboard mounting holes ?.

Thanks in advance.

I am thinking of going with this motherboard because it supports displayport with HD3000. The case I am using the Lian Li PC-Q11A does not have great ventilation so I am not sure I want to put a discrete card there.

I am also curious about the Wifi. Are you able to get it to work?

The specs saw that there is a mini-PCIe connector onboard where the WIfi is connected.

THe AzureWave AW-NE766, supporting IEEE 802.11b/g/n seems to be the card
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/ ... ard/1285/2

This card seems to have the RT2700E (Realtek) which is supposed to have the RALink 2860 chipset. The eepc version has the RA2790T chipset...


Ralink drivers (kexts?) for Macs (2860/2790 have the same driver)
http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_support ... php?sn=502
For 2870 it is showing support for up to 10.5 but not beyond

I have found mentions of the RALink in many Mac forums so that should help. BTW I am a first timer trying to understand things so take any hints with a pinch of salt.

maybe you are using a USB3.0 port to plug your mouse. Try a black one (USB2.0) and should be fine.

What about USB3.0 Ports ? any Success on Lion ? Which kexts ? Can't get them to work !

Does HDMI video and audio work on this board or does HDMI video and audio work on an ATI or Nvidia card? I currently have this board in my HTPC running Windows 7 but I'd like to switch it over.

Install these : natix.kext, tony nvida update, cuda driver 4.0.50 or newer, GeForceGLDriver.bundle, remove apple gnu power management for gt430 work with full open GL.

My full com.apple.Boot.plist ( 1 x 2tb hdd with osx lion, windown 7, media partion ; 1x 2tb with another media partion), i boot from usb boot stick:

not problem with original mouting holes on the board , but there is problem with back panel, I must cut the steel at the back of case for gt 430 card and onboard audio port fit, look at these picture:
