    Default Will the EP 41-UD3L drivers work on Mac OSX Snow Leopard ?

    Hi all,
    I've just installed Max OSX Snow Leopard and there were no drivers in there, then the thought came to me that the Gigabyte EP 41-UD3L drivers wouldn't even work on Mac.
    Is there a solution to this ?

    Mobo : EP 41-UD3L
    Graphics card : nVidia 8600 GS
    CPU : Intel Quad Core.

    Thanks alot,
    Regards,
    g.

    Solution... Google "Mac OSX x86" or Mac OSX snow leopard x86. I was able to install 10.5.8 on my system but was a hacked version not retail so the supplied drivers was enough to get everything working for me. Only drivers your gonna find are ones that someone made up as Mac OS is only intended to be installed on Mac's

    Could you post a link ? And will the hacked version just auto install all the drivers when you install OSX ?

    Thanks, I really appreciate it.

    Thumbs up Re: Will the EP 41-UD3L drivers work on Mac OSX Snow Leopard ?

    Yes, it will :)
    In fact, even the 10.7 Lion 64bit works on EP41-UD3L.
    I used this hackintosh tutorial, and everything works OOB except sleep. This is great hackintosh MOBO.
