Thanks for the guide, immo! I really appreciate the new DSDT for the M1530. I was able to get everything to work with additional kexts except the card reader. The VoodooSDHC.kext doesn't work with it. I'm attempting to figure out the AnyCardReader.kext but it doesn't work with editing.

I have a Ricoh internal multi-card reader that isn't recognized by 10.6.8 SL. Is there any way to alter the DSDT to see it? Thanks.


Mine somewhat works with VoodooSDHC 32+64 bit build but I sometimes get a complete computer lockup on eject. I'm not aware of any DSDT patches that could help.

Would using the newest version of the iASLme tool help make the DSDT more tailored to my system build or am I chasing after a vapor trail?

last codebox at bottom says
complete pcie section for m1530

I tried it but I keep getting a compile error...

Besides the fun with learning how to edit a DSDT.dsl file, I was able to get the VoodooSDHC.kext to work. I inserted the memory card to see what would happen. It works with the newest DSDT.aml that's available here.

I wouldn't mind learning how to fix the dsl file though.

A similar problem was encountered with the first release of Snow Leopard, but was not an issue on Leopard on M1330 and M1530. The issue was resolved by removing IRQ statements. These are in the guide, but since you have a different computer you may have to look somewhere different within the DSDT. I would also question whether or not the USB power fix would work on different machines as it is in the guide.

Suddenly I remembered that I had not fixed the usb problem with the DSDT but replacing the IOPCIFamily (following a post from Cavalier), I had removed the patched IOPCIFamily when trying to make 10.6.8 works, just recovering it and everything is working again. Perfect setup but C-States, a problem with a QX9300, but anyway great 1920x1200 15" MacBook Pro. I'm moving to a W520 soon, just hope C-States and Sandy Bridge will be easier.

Thanks!

After Updating to 10.7.2 my screen went black after the boot process. I found a patch for the DSDT in this thread http://www.insanelym...p...t&p=1759594

Thanks to zoliky at this point!

I modified the working DSDT_M1530_NVIDIA_ANYCPU_20110720.zip DSDT with the change he descriped and everything is working. Here is the Fixed DSDT.

I am Using Chameleon 2.1svn r1618

Hope you enjoy it. (Disclaimer: This is not tested on anything below 10.7.2)

Thanks to DarwinX he pointed me in the Right direction with the Update to Chameleon 2.1svn r1618

[Edit]
Fixed an error in the DSDT. Sorry forgot to change the D to a C...

not bad. but "AR5B91 is ok it should only work in 10.7.2 and above" ?? you mean you have 10.7.2 ? yes i used it in 10.7.0 and it works. it didtn work prior to 10.6.3 by no support from apple.

by the way .. if your router is wireless N set it to WPA2 and it shall run N speeds ( i max out to my isp limit on wifi now 2.4MBs)

when u get the card post dsdt and ioreg location of wifi so i can make it look like apple subsystem.

After updating my M1530 to 10.7.2, VoodooHDA v0.2.7.3 crashes my system. The AppleHDA intermittently recognizes the Intel HDA. Is there anything that needs to be done through the DSDT or is there another kext that I need to use?

On My M1530, the attached VoodooHDA has worked since Snow Leopard up to 10.7.2 . Audio works fine and it also switches to earphones automatically when it is plugged in.
