X79-UD3 i7 3820 - Snow Leopard sucessful install - but...

Recommended Posts


I'm building my 3th Hackintosh, (after a SL i7 870 and one CCE notebook ML i7 2760qm) with this hardware configuration:

Gigabyte x79-ud3

i7 3820

G.Skill 3x8GB 1866Mhz Ripjaws X

AMD Randeon HD 6870 1gb 256bits (i need to plug 2 vga lcd displays samsung syncmaster b1930)

Intel SSD 320 series 160GB sata 2

I sucessful installed SL with IBoot and updated to 10.6.8 version. I will install Pro Tools 9.06, so I will stay on SL.

My network works natively on SL

The onboard audio is disabled on BIOS (I will not use, I use an external soundcard).

I only can boot using GraphicsEnabler=No (fixed using multishit)

My graphic card is recognized by system as ATI Randeon HD ni40

I cannot boot in 64 bits mode. I tryed arch=x86_64 but did not work. multishit did not solved the problem too. I see 24 gb in system profiler/memory, but the os uses only 4gb. I cant use my memories in 1600mhz, only in 1333mhz.

I would be very grateful if someone can help me on this journey and sorry for bad english…

no support for u hardware in snow leopard...

the cpu must use legacy_kernel.. and the graphics early stage of any support of amd 6xxx series.

probably u problems come from there...

good hack
