Apple >Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard
Putting together the computer was a snap. With a friend of mine who knew what he was doing, it took about two hours. When I started to install the system, I ran into Kernel panic. This was because the Sandy Bridge installation needed to be patched. So, here's what I did...
(I pretty much followed the instructions here. Read this carefully before progressing.)
• Launched iBoot
• Installed Snow Leopard
• Configured MultiBeast
• Installed UpdateHelper
• Ran Mac 10.6.8 Combo Update
Viola! Booted perfectly. Only problem was the sound and networking. I searched on this site for how to finish that and came across this post from Frostcall, who has a much more detailed description then here.
Based on this info, I basically checked my off my Multibeast exactly like the image below...
WHAM! Networking popped up instantly and audio came upon reboot.
I went to the Apple website and looked at their custom built computers. The result from apple was an outrageous 6,124.00! I had spent only 1,300.00.
I hope this helps anyone who needs it.
The whole thing went tits up so I tried to fix it. Unfortunately no one on any of the boards would help and so I said fuck it and got a new MacPro and we're doing just fine. Oh, and tonymacx86.com bulletin board? Suck my balls. Thank you.
