Just updated to 10.6.7.

No visible issues. Sound works without a need to reinstall the patched kext.


Thanks someone said there were some speed improvements
(100pt in geekbench) do you feel it any faster?

I decided to try with a SSD harddrive and it works just fine with this mobo even 64 bit (still only 10.6.6 though). I use this hdd for my web casts over at justin.tv. Gonna try go up to 10.6.7 tonight. The Sapphire 5750 1 gb gddr5 works pretty good with kabyls bootloader even 64 bit. At least the dvi and vga ports, minidisplayports and hdmi is still working a bit weird though. For example with the minidisplay port I get only mirrored desktop.

Erm. Didn't really do benchmarks from 10.6.6 so I can't give a numerical comparison. Feels about the same to me I guess.

Incidentally, what are you guys using for the SMproductname in smbios.plist?

I have to use MacPro5,1 if not I won't get CPU and GPU temperatures. However, I don't seem to be getting fan speeds and all that.

Booted, stuck on

AppleRTL8169Ethernet: Ethernet Adress xx:xx:x....

instead..


Any ideas, to fix that?

Hi there AWOL,
I have made the OSX installer on the flashdisk with copied Kexts etc..

How do your files integrate into it? Do your files have to be copied prior to install, or used to config afterwards?

Thanks for any info.




this is P6T Essential that i made
im not taking any credit for this as i just collect kext from the net

Core i7 920 4 core + HT working
PS/2 keyboard and mouse working
ALC 1200 working
Realtek 8111C Working

Posted Image


Just to add on to the previous post, this happens when I try to boot from hard drive with the installed chameleon, I can boot normally into osx using the installer on usb


I have exactly the same problem, but happened to my after updating to 10.6.7. Is there anyone who has ideas how to fix this?

Hardware Specs:
P6TSE, i7 920, HD5770, SATA port 1 used for hdd

Guys, think you should read the first post with regards to creating a vanilla build as closely as possible. The lesser kexts you use (the more vanilla you are) the less chances for errors.

And if youre having problems with the flash drive method search for my thread for this mobo. You need a working hack though.

Try "GraphicEnabler=n" in both of boot.plist. Helps for me.

Try this for your sound problem:

When you boot from Chameleon use the arg -s

You will be brought to the command line version of os x.

type:

/sbin/fsck -fy
/sbin/mount -uw /

sudo -rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext

then reboot using -v -f

If that gets you back into OS X, you'll want to update AppleHDA.kext so it's compatible with 10.6.7, and run kext utility to refresh your kext cache.

So this means we can skip the P6T-SE kext in extra now? This means you have to remember to copy and reinstall those three kexts every update you make which people might forget! Whats new in this updated DSDT?
