Hi All,

Using ###### ###### usb I was able to get LION 10.7.4 98% working! Everything except Audio. I am hoping that some of the folks out there have solved the latest issue with the audio and LION.

Ethernet was working and then stopped after the updates from Apple. ###### drivers worked great.

I am running an NVIDIA Ge Force GTX 285 and that seems to work great, its recognized by the system and runs in hi-res mode (at least higher than 1k).

I am running i7 at 3.3Ghz and 16G of ram, all recognized and seems to be 100%.

I've tried to install the audio several times and nothing seems to work - at this point I don't know if I am fixing things or causing more problems. As I am a noob - not sure how to clean out (just audio) and start clean there. It took many tries to get all the cobinations right to get the install working and to be able to boot from the hard disk.

Anyway - please respond if you know how to get the Realtek audio working, when I open sounds it says there are no output devices on the system. But the drivers seem to install without any errors.

I had an old logitech webcam with microphone -so I just jacked that into the USB and it worked! The only thing left is to get the speakers working...

Anyway - thanks in advance, I appreaciate any help you can provide!

Geon

Has anyone used USB 3.0 with a USB 3.0 device successfully? Mine works fine with USB 2.0 devices, shows as Superspeed in system profiler, but then doesn't detect anything that is actually a USB 3.0 device when I plug it in.

If yours works, please post your:
DSDT
PXHCD.kext

Thanks!



I just upgraded to Mountain Lion, but still no luck with USB 3.0
It appears in the system profiler as USB Super-Speed Bus, but no connected device will work through the 3.0 ports.

Has anyone else figured out a way to get this up and running? The controller should be a "CalDigitUSBxHCI" and it is listed in mult-beast.

I also came across this guide from CalDigit, but its from 2010

I installed to a fresh drive, so i'm not sure what the process is for upgrading your existing install. I used ###### & mult-beast, and then used the same Lion kexts that were posted here before. Everything is working fine so far. Shutting down the computer takes significantly longer, but that may be my SSD acting funky. Sleep mode still isnt working, and I also dropped around 1,000 points in geekbench.

I am still not on Mountain Lion, but do have working USB 3.0 now.

Here is the PXHCD: https://dl.dropbox.c.../PXHCD.kext.zip

It breaks sleep though. A newer version of it allows sleep, but has other bugs. There are no working USB 3.0 drivers for this chipset that have no caveats, at least that I am aware of ;)

This firmware increased my read/write by about 10% (Must be installed from Windows): https://dl.dropbox.c...are 3.0.3.4.zip


I am using a CalDigit approach on my ASUS P9X79 series motherboard, but no luck with that approach on this chipset.

edit:
Fixed links.

Two tears ago, I buildt a HackPro using X58A-UD3R and ATI Radeon HD 5700, I7 2,8 Ghz, memory 6 Gb 1600 Mhz
I use mainly Snow leopard 10.6.8 and all works fine.

On different partitions I installed Lion and mountain Lion
I upgraded recently Lion to 10.7.5 and Mountain Lion to 10.8.2.

Now I have random KP 1 time over 3 to 5 at boot, only with Lion or mountain Lion.
2 kexts are pointed
ATI support
ATI5000Controller

I did some search but I didn't find solution to that.
I tryed to put video kexts from SL replacing Lions'one, but this gave grey display.

So... if someone has an ATI 5700 running fine under LION or Mountain lion
please exchange.

Thanks
Leon

I also am running an ATI card 5800 under Lion and same build and do have random KP. I stil cannot figure it out why I know is is the GPU though from console logs. However, I don't have them at boot but while running everything freezes and only the mouse pinter can move but can't interact nor click anything.
If I don't find a solution I am seriously thinking about changing the card with a newer one, anyone with this build and a GTX 680 around?

:weight_lift: Love to all, well all who are still using this mobo :wink2:

I ended up buying a gtx680 and could not run it in 10.7.5 so had to upgrade to 10.8.2 and just sharing how I did for those wishing to do the same.
Keep in mind I am a pure 100% noob and my ex boyfriend was the one who made me this built, and if I can keep it up is just thank you you all in this tread.

First I could not boot anymore from any USB stick and dunno why. Maybe I forgot to set something in the Bios when I upgrade to FH. tried on several usb sticks with chimera or chameleon either guid or mbb but nothing. So here is what I ended in doing:

I had 2 partitions in 10.7 one about 2gb just fo the boot loader the other for Lion, not willing to destroy that got another HDD in and made 3 partions GUID first 2gb for the bootloader than one for the os and another about 8gb for the install files (Could not use a USB for that or I would have) I made them in this order

{BootParition} 2gb
{OsPartition} the remaning space
{installFiles} 8gb

{InstallFiles} Prepared the {installFiles} partition following this guide the only difference I pointed to a partition instead of an usb volume.

Still using a working video card not the new gtx680 I installed chimera 2.1 in the first small partition then copied there the same extra I used in 10.7 (Will attach files at the end of the post). Reboot the system and press F12 at bios then select the new hard disk and boot with chimera the {installFiles} partition and install 10.8. when done it will reboot once and again F12 but this time boot into {OsPartition}.

Ended up with a working 10.8 and replaced 4 kext in S/L/E/ with Kext Wizard and installed the update 10.8.2 the did again the 4 kext as before (I am too noob to figure out if it was really needed or not) and then installed these drivers for nvidia cards.

Change the GraphicsEnabler to NO in org.chameleon.Boot.plist and shutdown. Put the new videocard in and In Bios placed the new hard disk as coming first for boot order and saved.

Once logged in again I used MigrationAssistan to move all my stuff from the 10.7 installation.
Everything, but few things, seems to work, sleep too :) but had not much time to test it.

Things who do not work are USB3 od it does but I get just 38.5 MB/s
iMessage (and I tried many online tutorial with no succes, and I am also using the chimera who is supposed to fix it but doesn't.

Fell free to have a check at my files and if you find anything wrong ( maleorderbride and dougaa :wink2: )
please let me know, moreover if any of you has a good dsdt file for i7 930 please share my geekbench is about 9600 and was above 10000 in snow leopard but was two years ago and maybe cpu get older too :) All the files you will see attached are coming 99% from these tread I guess and are previous share buy you guys!

:star_sunglasses: Cheers!!

I am going to make a trial soon.

I start from there

I would like to report successful installation

Maverik on this GA-X58A-UD3R.

 

I started from

http://www.insanelym...-install-guide/

 

everything is OK until point 10 included.

I confirm you must put GraphicsEnabler=No

In /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist on USB key.

 

Installation goes fine but first reboot gives KP.

 

So you need to launch an other OS (I used Snow) in order to add some kexts.

I have a ATI 5770 so I needed AMDRadeonX3000.kext and ATI5000Controller.kext in /S/L/E/

 

If you want Ethernet you need RealtekRTL81xx.kext in /S/L/E/

 

 

If you want ATA DVD to work you need JMicron36xATA.kext in /S/L/E/

 

 

Of course you need FakeSMC. Kext & NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in /S/L/E/

 

 

If you want sound: don’t put any DSDT.aml in /Extra and you need AppleHDA.kext (modified) and HDAEnabler.kext (From tonymac…)

 

All .kexts are in folder http://ul.to/9x2okqqm

 

Of course copy each .kext in /S/L/E/

When in there

#chown –R root:wheel  xxx.kext && chmod –R 755 xxx.kext

 

You can’t install chameleon from Maverik (Forbidden !) so do it from other OS and watch the install log (in Maverik partition). You may need some adjustments as indicated in the log.

 

 

reboot option –f

 

it’s done, you are in Maverick 10.9HD_DP5 all working

 

PS: There is also an update floating on the web 10.9_13A510D

If you try to install it : catastroph at reboot=shutdown you'd better make a backup before test !

:thumbsup_anim:  Great news!!! But I hope than when it comes out you guys end up with an easier way to have it running ... I can wait :)

hello DDI

 

i know and you know that InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86

but this is a fast way to install Mavericks....

http://www.tonymacx8...l-based-pc.html

 I report results here after:

All is working if you post install with multi  beast :

#####

Audio without DSDT ALC889

disk third party Sata

RTL81xx

 

 

ATA DVD works if you add manually ApplePCIIDE.kext.

I used kextutility 2.5.1 (mountain Lion) for kexts manual insertion.

 

Mavericks is very fast, boots 26 sec on my Hack.

 

 

leon321

 

 sleep  works too after a clean re install

moving to 10.9.1 breaks only audio, you must reinstall Audio without DSDT ALC889
