I first updated to PC EFI_v9 Chameleon using the installer/package that is included in the DSDT Patcher GUI. Then, I applied a patched DSDT using the GUI application and restarted. I am stuck at the grey apple logo boot screen. I tried to boot using verbose, safe mode and also in single user mode. It always gets stuck at:
"HFS: Removed 1 orphaned unlinked files or directories"

Please help! I am posting this from my backup OS(Vista).

Have you tried, DSDT=n or DropDSDT=y at the darwin command line?

I'm sure there's an override option that you can use at darwin boot command line.

Yea - what do I do with these files (from the zip)? You say to make them /boot, but I'm a little unclear as to what that means (aside from referring to the /boot directory, which I'm familiar with from using GRUB with linux).

I have Chameleon installed, I just need to know what to do with these files.

wondering the same thing.

Actually I'm a bit confused. I running 10.5.5 vanilla kernel (main install from kalyway 10.5.2 dvd), and I'm not sure if I even need to do anything before I install the 10.5.6 update. when I read the top of the first post of this thread it seems like there is no need for the DSDT patch or anything, because quote: "...the final version of 10.5.6 AppleRTC.kext doesnt panic without DSDT patch..."

Could someone please explain what I need to do to update from 10.5.5 to 10.5.6?

Hello, I am quite new to this community and I just downloaded and installed iDeneb 1.4 10.5.6 on my computer (Core 2 duo 2.8ghz e7400, MSI G31M3-F, 9500GT Video, 2g ram).

After the installation (which completed successfully) there was the using 10485 buffer headers and 4096 cluster error and so I fixed it with the old JaS files. The computer could boot up normally but only with 1 core or else it will simply restart after showing a few lines.

I tried the DSDT patch and it compiled successfully and I also used your chameleon patch to reinstall chameleon and chameleon replaced my boot file properly, but the computer still reboots in the same manner if I try to use both cores.

I am not much of a programmer, so can anyone help me out with the problem, I attached the dsl file.

Thanks!

I've patched my DSDT trying to get rid of the single core problem...
something went wrong and now I cannot even get the single user mode prompt

is there any chameleon boot parameter to avoid loading the /dsdt.aml file on start up????

thanks

[modified cross-post from Install Leopard Retail DVD on ASUS P6T Deluxe LGA 1366 (core i7), Boot-132 + EFI Partition Boot]



running the DSDT patch exactly as described, placing the resulting dsdt.aml into the root directory as /DSDT.aml and

then enabling all cores and HT booting gets stuck with the last message:

"using 16384 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers"

Deleting /DSDT.aml resolves it, but of course there is only on core without HT which defeats the purpose of a core i7.,

Booting with one core set in the bios plus- x brings it up.


Thanks in advance - cpufreeze


P6T Deluxe V2 - i7 920 - 12GB - 10.5.6 - currently booting of 132 CD

Update: file chameleon in chameleon.zip should become your /boot...

I can no longer restart when I use your chameleon as my /boot: though the debug version works for me so what's the catch? How do I solve this?

I mean I don't want a slow(er) startup due to all debug info, and dumping something like: "version 1 not found" in the non-debug version is IMHO not done.

Edit: I have not tried to recompile it, but I might give it a try later today – I don't have any use for Chameleon 2 RC1 since I am only using OS X on my hack, and thus v1.0.1n is all I need (for now).

The last post in this thread before yours is more than a year old, and the version of Chameleon that this thread is about is obsolete.
If you already have Chameleon 2.0 RC4 installed you don't need to do anything to your bootloader or its configuration to use a patched DSDT with it.

You don't need to patch your DSDT to get OS X to recognize your i7 CPU. All you need to do is add SMBustype=1793 to /Extra/smbios.plist.

The above will not work if you're using the Voodoo kernel, the Voodoo Kernel already has CPU overriding/faking built-in.

What kernel are you using? If you don't know, run Terminal.app, type uname -a and post the output here.

If it turns out you're using the Voodoo Kernel, don't worry about the CPU type being incorrect, it's perfectly normal and it's for the best.
