Update on the Shuttle SX58J3 Hackintosh

May 1, 2011

The new MultiBeast 3.5 now has support for the Marvel 8057 Ethernet controller that this model uses.
One of our readers has successfully installed Mac OS x Snow Leopard 10.6.7 on his SX58J3 and pointed out to me that the Audio is the Realtek ALC888 and not the ALC662 as I previously stated. So, the Audio driver for the Realtek ALC888 is readily available and I put a link to it in the post with the new MultiBeast download link for the SH67H3.

Shuttle SX58J3 Hackintosh

January 26, 2011

Installing Mac OS X Snow Leopard on the SX58J3 is going to be a problem due to the Ethernet driver not being available at this time. The J3 uses the Marvell 8057 Ethernet controller, which I haven’t been able to locate a driver for. You can install Snow Leopard using the same iBoot and Multibeast as with the SH55J2.
(Note: Don’t use the same Multibeast options in the screen shot I posted for the SH55J2)
An alternative would be to temporarily install a compatible PCI Ethernet card in the J3, until the driver becomes available.
The J3 uses a different Audio controller also, the Realtek ALC662. I’ll find the driver for it and post it here.
