What do you think about this idea ? : let's make a database of DSDT patched for every motherboard we have.
The entries needed are :
- motherboard exact name
- the révision
- the bios Version
- the fixes made
I start :
here's attached :
Asus P5LD2-VM SE
fixes : RTC, HPET, builtin USB, builtin Ethernet, sleep fix - no audio fix, no HPET/USB conflict fix

Fixes: HPET (CPUPM loads), RTC (For SL), LAN (TM fix), Audio, GFX, SPEEDSTEP
I'll update this if I make any new additions to the DSDT.
Now the only kexts I have in /Extra are: FakeSMC, GigabyteALC662, OpenHaltRestart, PlatformUUID
Rest of the system is untouched.

Fixes : audio, usb builtin, rtc (for sl), hpet

But here is mine:
Nvidia 9800GT 512MB (PCI 0, PEGP, DSTD GFX)
Ethernet (PEX 4, LAN 0)
fixes : RTC, HPET, Aliases Patch, GP9, Time Machine Patch

I don't know if this is really useful, because of the different hardware in our systems and blackosx wrote an easy DSDT guide.
I think this is a wonderful idea.
DSDT hacking is a little difficult, and except for graphics all motherboards of the same make and bios version should logically be the same. If someone can get the hardest parts of dsdts (USB internal, correctly identified sata drives for no orange HDs, audio) hacked then why should someone else with a similar setup duplicate the effort? Eventually enough dsdts could be collected to make some sort of tool similar to EFI Studio. Since Snow Leopard requires a dsdt because of the CMOS bug, it would be nice for those who have trouble with dsdts.
Here is mine for a EP35-DS3R Rev 2.1 bios F4. I have working audio with attached kext, ethernet, internal USB for perfect sleep. I use a special AHCIPortInjector.kext also included for sata support. Also has CMOS fix- currently using with 10.6.1.
I use EFI strings for GFX, so this should work with any motherboard exactly like this one.

Nvidia 8800GTS 640MB (PCI 0, PEGP, DSTD GFX)
Ethernet (PEX 5, LAN 0)
fixes : RTC, HPET, Aliases Patch, GP9, Time Machine Patch, Cmos, Internal USB fix, AHCI-fix
Only kexts needed are: fakesmc.kext, openhaltrestart.kext, platformuuid.kext
Orange icons are fixed with the AHCI-fix in the dsdt file.
I have an USB soundcard which is OSX compatible, I don't use the onboard audiochip.

DSDT fixes: RTC, HPET, builtin USB, sleep fix, builtin Ethernet, 885/9a audio fix (requires LegacyHDA.kext, 4out2in), GeForce9800GTX+ 512MB
This ZIP contains DSDT.AML and LegacyHDA.kext. The kext can be loaded from /E/E (vanilla friendly )
Posted 20 September 2009 - 03:44 PM
- the révision ???
- sound VoodooHDA lan intel8566m.kext from leopard

fixes : UID (Sleep Shutdown doesn't work)
I had to use GFX String , for GeForce 8800GT 512Mb

dsdt09_08_09.zip 16.18KB 20 downloads Not my most up to date but work in progress none the less!
Modifications too numerous to mention !
Just one important notification - even minor changes like amount of RAM etc can make differences in your DSDT.AML.
Beware using other peoples' DSDT - InfiniteMac
Thus is it really safe to use a DSDT compiled on another PC?
Is it safer to distribute DSDT.DSL file instead?
Absolutly - this should be for reference only !

Don't know the revision
BIOS 1305 (the newest one currently)
USB's and Hard Disks are properly seen as internal.
Time Machine works.
Manual sleep and waking up from sleep probably works (except for me, look below).
I used this guide (including the kexts) to install SL from original DVD via a Leopard install:
Then replaced the boot with Netkas PCEFI 10.3:
Then took the dsdt from here:
And added this Time Machine fix to that dsdt.dsl and recompiled to DSDT.aml:
The GraphicsEnabler option in PCEFI 10.3 doesn't work for my Gainward Radeon HD4850 512MB, so I have to use the EVOenabler.kext (and added id in the ATI4800Controller.kext) instead. That's why I get corrupted graphics when waking up from sleep. Sleep would possibly work otherwise.
Thanks to all the wise and helpful people, and of course Apple as well (please make a sensible mid-price quadcore tower without a fixed display and graphics).
EDIT: Replaced boot with Netkas EFI 10.5 and turned on GraphicsEnabler. Graphics work now without EVOenabler.kext and even waking up from sleep works fine!

Well I just thought I would add my 2 cents and I hope this thread takes off. We should try and get some more obscure dsdt's in here too. I have a few more patches and observing to do to mine and I will post it maybe tonight and if not definitely tomorrow!

DSDT.dsl attached. Includes fixes for full graphics, CMOS reset and an audio injection to "layout-12". Also agree that not a good idea to use someone elses DSDT directly, but that a fixed one is good for reference. I was also helped in getting a very buggy DSDT into a state where it can be used - thanks 67GTA.
I have included a guide on how to fix the errors in the ZOTAC board so you can create your own DSDT. You can find the guide here
