@ridgeline,

Thanks for the great help. I grabbed some of your files and used your DSDT. You have done great work with the DSDT. That for the most part will break or make a great Mac Clone and because of you I have I would say 100% Mac Clone.

Couple quick questions:

I have the Intel Core 2 Duo QUad 2.5GHZ model Q9300, system ram 4 GB, and a Galaxy 8400GS 256MB which is fine for me at $24 US.

I also have just acquired a Intel Core 2 Duo Q8300 45 NM 95 Watt. I think this Processor is a better performer over the Q9300, but I may be wrong?

So now I get to my point, WIll I need to re-extract a DSDT with either one of these processors? I am using Chameleon 2 RC5 r616. I don't need a smbios.plist although I see only 4 states for Speedstep. Maybe I need a smbios.plist and put in iMAC8,1?

I have dropSSDT=yes in my com.apple.Boot.plist since you have both the _PSS and _CST CPU script in the DSDT. Is this correct or do I need dropSSDT=no?

I have the Gigabyte Model GA-G41M-ES2L revision 1.4 Bios F9. This will make a difference to? Do you have this exact model, revision and Bios? If not I suppose I have to extract a fresh DSDT from either Linux or a Non DSDT override OS.

Although I have to say your DSDT is working Perfectly!!! They say never to use another person's DSDT unless they have the exact MB, Revision and Bios and even then you could have a different CPU and memory. Not exactly sure how this could affect the memory address script in the DSDT for both CPU and memory differences?

I can't seem to get audio nor Lan to work unless I use VoodooHDA for audio and a Lan kext from kexts.com, which is fine. There must be a difference in Audio and Lan chipsets in Rev 1.4? I am also using the FakeSMC by Slice with Monitoring and it works great with VoodooMonitor.

Temps are around 48 for each core.

Thanks again and hope you can answer the majority of my questions?

Edited Next Day:

I would be interested in your SMBIOS for both MacPro and iMAC script, or if you only have one SMBIOS.plist that will be fine to.

Thanks


EDITED 10-28-10

I went ahead and extracted my own DSDT with Ubuntu Live CD.

I made all the mods as you did. Not much in a way of modifications. I have a couple questions. It seems that I cannot get the CPUxCST ssdt files to extract only the CPUxIST files and CPUpm are the only SSDT tables that will extract. SO I do not know what CST and PSS script to replace yours with? I would think they would be different? How were you able to manage to get that script?

I also noticed a couple sections of my DSDT are a bit different maybe my MB version 1.4 or Bios version F9? One section was the HPET I had to remove the extra ATT3 and ATT4 script from there or I would get a kernel panic saying CPU2 HPET not defined. I also notice 2 sets of IRQs in the HPET. I just basically replicated your HPET with mine and removing the script that caused the kernel panic. Did you have a kernel panic at first after modding the HPET section of the DSDT?

Other question is in regards to adding some operating region just after the header and processor. It almost looks like it was added for shutdown fix? The gigabyte threads show this OperatingRegion and the rest of the script all in the PTS section and it looks like you separated out the OperatingRegion and placed it closer to after the CPU section? I will look it up and paste it here for reference a little later. For now have a look at some of the differences I posted in another thread.

Just want to chime in that there is a new revision of G41M-ES2L, rev, 1.4.

I ordered this MB from NewEgg two weeks ago and on the box it says Rev 1.4 with F9 Bios.

There are some differences -
The LAN chipset is now 8111E, so the existing G41M guides's drivers wouldn't work. I've downloaded the 8111E kext from this thread, and placed it at /E/E. It's working perfectly now.

The sound codec is also different. I haven't been able to get the onboard audio to work using the existing guides, so for now I am just using USB sound. I haven't dug too deep into it yet, but it seems like it's a 887.


Wow. You saved my sanity. I have followed the installs in this and other threads but could not get sound or ethernet. In fact, the last try yielded a blue screen with very, very faint desktop.

Are you sure about the sound? According to the Gigabyte website, all four revs use the ALC888B code. The first three do use the RTL8111C/D/(L) chip while the 1.4 version uses the RTL8111E chip.

Thank you for this amazing guide! I managed to run Snow Leopard without any problems. Successfully updated to 10.6.6. But the only problem I'm facing is sleeping. I put sleepenabler.kext in \Extra folder and it works but not as it should be. After clicking the Sleep option/button it goes to sleep and I am able to get back to work with my PC but there's a one problem - this red button on my computer keeps "glowing" all the time. And if I try to go to sleep again, surprise it's not working. Does anyone know what am I supposed to do?

Has anyone started the Lion adventure on the ES2L? Just trying to work out if I need to on any of my machines?

Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks.
