FWIW - I'm almost certain that the LED embedded in the lid "glows" (slowly dims and brightens) when the laptop is sleeping under Windows 7.

I can attest to this behavior. Yes the LED's blink while the laptop is sleeping under windows, but not when it's hibernating or "deep sleep".

I think deep sleep is the goal here since these laptops last about an hour before you need to run to an outlet or switch out the battery. With these DSDT hacks, I think my laptop is deep sleeping. I'm pretty sure it makes itself a hibernate file, but it's obviously confused since it's blinking it's LED's and powered USB's when it should be completely off.

OFF TOPIC but good news for our laptops, I got one of the $300 i7-830QM chips from eBay and swapped out my i5. Now I have 8 threads of power! And for those of you that don't know, you can get the internal Bluetooth unit for $15 and a 7800mah (2+ hours) battery for about $55.

Completely unrelated to my previous postings, but I have an interesting issue that I haven't been able to fix.

It has to do with the clock. I have the right time whenever I boot into OS X. It doesn't ever move fast anymore. However, whenever I boot into Windows AFTER having booted into Mac OS X, the clock is 4 hours ahead.

This is solved by simply syncing to Internet time again. This won't happen if I boot into Windows right off the bat, only if I boot OS X first, then reboot into windows.

Very frustrating when I've been coding in OSX and then want to game on Windows, lol....

Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone have a fix? Any help is appreciated :)

[edit update] On Vista SP2, Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2, do the following in the Registry: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation] "RealTimeIsUniversal"=dword:00000001

If that looks like chicken scratch, google for a beginner's guide to editing the Windows Registry; not to be rude, but I don't do Windows support - queries will be forwarded to /dev/null

I wish I could remember where I found this fix and how to actually do it, but I can tell you that you have to change a Windows Registry entry to tell Windows to use UTC instead of local time (Windows will still compensate properly and display the local time). Google :)

The UTC fix is on Prasy's blog. I've used it myself on two dual-boot machines, it works!

Hello,

I wish I had more to contribute to this cool project aside from yet another Atheros WiFi question, but I've seemingly exhausted all relevant material and personal ability trying to figure this out.

To the point:

I was experiencing the same Airport connected-but-not-connected issue as fragment137, but couldn't retrieve a connection from the Internet (or my router settings page) even after changing the encryption type to open.

Furthermore, in an attempt to solve it, I seem to have rendered the IO8211Family kext useless. I've tried installing the 10.6.5 kext several times now, utilizing Kext Helper b7 and Kext Utility. I've also tried installing via command line, repairing permissions afterwards.

Currently, Airport will not detect my card and is in permanent Off state. I've gotten it to work every now and then, but invariably destroy those efforts trying to achieve a "real" connection.

I'm now at a loss. This is my first working Hackintosh build (never had hardware this compatible), and I'm quite inexperienced in this process. Previous Linux use makes things easier, but I feel as though I might have missed something in the initial setup (DSDT trickery threw me for a loop, maybe something there?). I also seem to be lacking a few files I see listed in various tutorials on this board (/Extra/CMBIOS.plst and others).

I suppose I would try a re-install in any other case, but I'd like to view that as a last resort. I currently have a stable OSX build running alongside Win7 with the Chameleon bootloader, and spent the past day and a half getting this far. Any help would be tremendously appreciated.

Here are the outputs of everything that seems slightly relevant:

I am following these directions step by step using the newest empire booter and a 10.6 retail disc. my bios is v 206 and its not working. I keep running into a problem every time it goes to start up. I put in empire. Switch to retail. Select the dvd to install from, put in -v. It gives me some line of code so it starts working, then after about 10 seconds maybe it stops and says "Press any key to continue." So when I do the screen goes black and my computer restarts. Does anyone know why this might be? I have the Asus G60JX from best buy as well and it just doesn't want to work for me.

I had a similar issue as well, Rob24. I can't recall the exact procedure that fixed it, as I tried a number of things. What sticks out in my mind, was the fact that my first Empire boot disk was bad. Try re-burning it at a slower speed and verifying it?

I also went into my BIOS settings and turned many of the extraneous options off. One of these allowed me to boot into the Snow Leopard installation.

I'm going to try to burning the Empire disc and also what do you mean by extraneous options? Like which options did you turn off? Because I dont know what is needed or not.

I turned off:

Advanced - ASUS FancyStart and Legacy USB Support
Security - All I/O Interfaces Unlocked
Boot - PXE Boot

Whether any of these made a difference or not, I'm not sure, but it's the best I can do! I'm leaning towards reburning Empire being your best bet, but these couldn't hurt.

I am still at the point that I was before, but I am very much enjoying my Hackintosh!

I haven't been able to fix the sleep/wake problem. Apparetly my G51Jx-A1 is unique with it's sleep/wake function... though I can't see why.

The only other thing that (partially) doesn't work is the WiFi adapter. I can read my B+G Mixed WiFi network at home, but can't see any N networks, and also can't see my schools network anywhere (Even in the commons, which is the closest location to the physical router). I'm waiting for 10.6.5 to hopefully fix this problem.

As for sleep/wake, I've tried numerous things, including the fixes listed in here (And listed as working with the ASUS G51Jx-X3) and still can't get my computer to wake properally. It will sleep, but I have to do a hard reboot in order to get back into my OS.

One more minor thing is the touchpad is about 95% functional (I can't single click, but I can two-finger scroll, as well as scroll with the specified area on the right).

Other than this, I am extremely happy with this install.... Thanks everyone for your help! :) Anyone with more info about the sleep/wake issue please let me know :D

@wonslung,

I see the fix for Keyboard Backlight when in sleep. Is there a fix for the white LEDs blinking on the top of the LID when put into sleep?

Also has anyone solved the Disk removal error upon wake? Even with the latest and greatest DSDT from MaLd0n's DSDT auto patcher I still get a Disk removal error upon wake. We have tried many things just wondering if you have come up with a fix yet?

Anyone running 10.6.8/ 10.7 Lion?

I have it running now but had to add UID, Zero in Device (PCI0) section of the DSDT.

Everything seems to be working. Audio volume might be a little softer but other than that everything seems to be working fine.

Anyone else attempt this install?

I have noticed this is an old topic and I just wanted to add that I have installed Mountian Lion on Asus G73JW with a few minor issues like camera not working and Launch pad not fuctioning correctly.  I have since moved on to Asus G75Vx i7 3630QM 2.4GHz with a few upgrades ddr5 3gb video nvidia GTX 670MX w/3D   32GB mem  2 TB 1TB x 1TB hard drive.

 

Now I like to play alot with OS's so I have done my share of Virtualbox and all the kindergarden playing on this machine.  I have been Eye balling Mavericks and I am pretty determind to make this happen.  No ordinarly I would use drivers and ways that work previously but since this is a from scratch install it will take some tweaking here and there.  Object is to have total fuctionality but I am sure I will lose the 3D function. 

 

Now, Please do not feel I am trying to take your spotlight. I just felt, "Hey this guy got it on 1 ASUS and I did it to another and now I want it on the High end gamer ASUS"

 

As I achieve a step and repeated the process without failure I will then post the instructions.  Any thoughts or Ideas just pop me a PM and I will get back to you.

If I understand you correctly, I think what you should do is start a new thread (and consider making an entry in the Hardware Compatibility List, like this one).
