Hi,

It took days, but I think I found it. The KP at boot time stopped, when I removed VoodooHDA drivers. I am using a X58A-UD5 board which has the ALC899 audio chip.

UPDATE: It also panics when using the patched appleHDA kext. Only when no sound kexts are present, it boots normally.

UPDATE 2: Regrettably, the problem is not solved by installing the 10.6.5 combo update from Apple.

I'm at a loss now.

Hi,

Boot in verbose and take some shots.


I have tried almost everything I could think of by now:

- removed HDEF injection from dsdt *** I am not sure if it should be in there ***
- flashed bios to latest version
- tried 32 bit booting
- used different chameleon versions
- tried different fakeSMC's

Some observations:

1) I am also getting KP at boot time when trying to get sound with a patched appleHDA kext - so it doesn't seem specifically voodoo related.
2) there is no KP at boot time if no audio kext is loaded
3) the problem did not exist in 10.6.4
4) I can mostly boot normally when I use either 'ignore caches' or 'verbose boot'

PS I have voodoohda 2.7.2 installed at the moment.
I will now boot verbose and take a screenshot and paste here in about 10 min.

Attached is my current dsdt.

UPDATE : I can't make a picture, as it boots normally each time when I use verbose mode...
It panics only when I use normal boot mode. Maybe I can make a dump somehow when using normal mode?

If you have headphones plugged in when you start the machine, don't do that.

I finally managed to get a few shots in verbose mode. It seems it freezes up at unpredictable places.

1) Yes, indeed, I have headphones plugged in. Was never a problem before. Will try booting without them.

2) Could it be that I have my processor ill-configured in the dsdt? I believe I have an i7 920. Could it lead to problems if its declared incorrectly in dsdt?

Please see photo's for boot screen.

If you have headphones plugged in when you start the machine, don't do that.


After removing headphones I have not seen KP at boot time. I wish I knew why I could boot normally with headphones in 10.6.4 and not in 10.6.5.

May I ask where you heard about the headphones problem?

In any case, than you for the tip.

Installed 10.6.6 via Software Update this morning. Rebooted. Ran Geekbench. No perceivable problems at this moment. Your mileage may vary.

It's the obsolete DSDT_GA_EX58_UD5_F9m_S3_920_W3520_v2.zip from post 1, where it's described, so what's your question?

I was thinking about checking out the new AnVAL bootloader. Does anyone on this thread have any firsthand experience with it? If so, do you have any tips or tricks that I should know given my config (below)? Any and all information is appreciated. Thanks.

no experience, but good luck. looks super interesting trying to use bootloader as main thing to patch osx for pc, instead of dsdt, kexts etc
