Final BIOSs have been released at http://www.gigabyte....d/Default.aspx;
2010/01/29 1. Support Intel Core i7 6 core processors


for 4 cores, are there any other benefits upgrading? i am still using f7, stable so far.

the only thing that i like is the DVID feature, to lower the CPU temp.
is this feature maintained in the final release?

Will you graciously release like you did for the F9m, some F9 bios patched d00d?

I'm looking for an unmodified dsdt.dsl from the following boards (*);
GA-EX58-EXTREME *
GA-EX58-UD5
GA-EX58-UD4P
GA-EX58-UD4 *
GA-EX58-DS4 *
GA-EX58-UD3P revision 1.7 *
GA-EX58-UD3P revision 1.6 *
GA-EX58-UD3P revision 1.0 *
GA-EX58-UD3P-SLI *
GA-X58A-UD7
GA-X58A-UD5 *
GA-X58A-UD3 *


Hi dood,

Thanks for all your hard work with this. I'm looking forward into delving deeper into DSDT mods.

I believe you're looking for some DSDT.dsl files. The attached was generated on my GA-X58A-UD3R with BIOS F2C and the previous DSDT file (from my prior EX58-UD5) removed (and the system rebooted). The DSDT generation was performed using iasl from 10/15/09 within DD's script v4.22. If it matters, the .aml file was converted to a .dsl using iASLme with the 1/25/10 version of iasl embedded.

If the weekend isn't too hellish, and you want it, I can generate another DSDT using iasl 1/25/10 and the F2 release BIOS.

Cheers,
Lyle

I made a few changes to my system yesterday which have caused my system to run differently. The main change I made was replacing my bootloader with a modified version of Chameleon/PC-EFI (found here: http://www.efixusers...read.php?t=644) called AsereBLN Booter. It allows the removal of kexts like OpenHaltRestart/EvoReboot and PlatformUUID. After installing it sleep doesn't seem to be working. The computer wakes, but the monitor doesn't come out of standby, but I don't get the continual GPU fan noise I would usually get when it didn't work before.

The only other change I made was to audio. I patched DSDT and installed LegacyHDA.kext to S/L/E.

I got a kernel panic when trying to shutdown, but restart seemed to work the first time.

I imagine the problem is caused by the bootloader. Anyone have any ideas?

I updated post 1 several days ago to show that there's no difference in the dsdt.dsl from each.

Thanks, the only difference between the GA-X58A-UD7 (S3 sleep) dsdt.dsl I was given and your GA-X58A-UD3R (S1 sleep) dsdt.dsl, besides the sleep differences, is the address base in `Device (PCI0.EXPL)'.
I'm assuming your F2C BIOS has DVID, so I assume F2 wouldn't be any different with respect to it's dsdt.dsl.
The differences between GA-X58A and GA-EX58-UD5 are many.

I keep getting "couldn't find en0" errors in the console during Time Machine backups. It seems to back up properly but I'm trying to eliminate any error I can. I'm on Chameleon 2 RC4 and used fix 18A on your first post. I feel like I read somewhere that the latest version of realtekr1000.kext fixes this issue? Maybe not. Any ideas?

Ryan!

I have a gigabyte ud5 i7 920 with a geforce gts250 running SL following Digital Dreamer's script. It seems to be working pretty good but I'm interested in incorporating the changes detailed in this thread. I have f7 bios and the only thing that has been changed is what DD showed in his thread.

What is the best way to incorporate dOOd's changes into a system that was installed following DD's tutorial?

Also, I am building an identical system for a friend, should I install using DD's script then convert things to dOOd's?

I'm a newbie so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question.

In SL that error won't prevent successful backups.
According to your signature you have revision 1.0 of GA-EX58-UD3R which uses Realtek RTL8111D, and 18 A, B or C should work if you use Bit Shoveler's Bonjour RealtekR1000SL.kext and C2RC4.
If you had revision 1.6 and 1.7 of GA-EX58-UD3R it uses Realtek RTL8111C, and no additional kext or fix for IOBuiltin=Yes is needed because it will use the original AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext.

What changes does the script make to the base DSDT?
You could see the differences by following the instructions in post 1 regarding how to boot without a DSDT to obtain an unmodified one, then use diff in Terminal.

I installed the magic mouse today. A bit tricky to handle :o

I bought the recommended trust dongle, unfortunately, i got some boot issue with the dongle connected. Impossible to boot, a pop up comes : overclocking or voltage failure it says.

Even with stock parameters :/ Damn it!

what is the best way to flash the BIOS?

QFlash? Do I have to flash both of them (dual BIOS) at the same time?


Or is it better to make sure it is working before flashing the secondary?

There is only one bios to flash, use Qflash

read your manual before you do anything - page 80 . Make sure you do the follow up actions

You can use a usb drive to store your bios file on - you don't need a floppy disk

Are you sure it is a 2400p, there is a similar looking gold one with the number 16008 on the top (model 16008)

I also have one of those, it refuses to boot.

If you really have the 2400p it won't get enough current if you plug it into your keyboard hub, you
should use the mobo usb ports

thanks for the tips,
i flashed F9, the POST before Chameleon is faster.

however, when i tried to enable CIA2, os x couldn't boot, even windows 7 generated blue screen.
i guess this is more on how i tuned the bios setting.
another issue not related to os x, i cannot boot into ubuntu live cd using the usb dvd drive, luckily i managed to get the vanilla dsdt using windows.

besides that, my os x installation seems alright.


cheers

Here is my DSDT for EX58-UD4P + i7 920. Perfectly working with SL 10.6.2.

DSDT based on the latest BIOS F11.

I use Asere's Bootloader so I don't need any kexts for Shutdown & Restart...
