Hi !

I have succesfully installed OSX to my Notebook Asus X73S and everything system related work good !
I was just trying OSX and now I will stay on it :P

The only problem I got is this :
When I try to Shutdown, restart or logout I got a black screen , OSX shutdown but the computer don't ...
It seems to be DSDT related.
I also don't have battery percentage, battery don't seems to be recognized, but I have a LED that tell me if I have a low battery so I can do without it ...

I attach the DSDT here if anyone can help me as I really don't know how to do it !

Also , if anyone can help me to get rid off ##### CD as I can't boot with any loader ( I got the apple grey logo with a little interdiction panel but I can boot with ##### CD ;) )

Here is a resume of my problem :
- Can't boot without ##### CD
- Black screen when shutdown restart or logout
- No Battery Percentage

Thanks to anyone who can help me !

PS : Here are some information for you if needed :
Motherboard Spec
Integrated dual-core Intel® T4300
Memory: 2 x 2Go 800Mhz
Nvidia GeForce 9300M GS
2x500Gb ( One for Seven, one for OSX )

Lan + Sound + GPU are working ( or at least seems to work without problem ! )


I've installed many extensions but I don't know really what or why as nothing have changed since the installation ...

Thanks !

Try to send report by maldon's RUN_ME from here http://www.insanelym...howtopic=235523
to see kexts loaded and guess how to solve your no boot problem.

Test this and tell me if at least shutdown problem has gone :)

Patched RTC,HPET,TMR,PIC (irq reloc), SBUS and LPC, and shutdown fix.

Don't know if your CPU can run vanilla kernel, if it's less than core 2 duo you might use legacy kernel. Try arch=i386 as boot arg on chamaleon. and good luck.

Thanks Camilo_ML

I've tested what you said and here are the results :
- arch-i386 is already used by chameleon and it don't work :S
- The DSDT you gaved me didn't work more than the actual one, I can't reboot , shutdown or else ...
- I attache the run-me reults ;)

I have a little question : Can't I use the ##### CD files directly from the HDD as it work with the CD ( non legacy ) but don't with the installed one ?

Thanks for your help !

Edit : With -v -x I can see so many lines Read HFS+ : It seems to load so many things on boot, I surely don't need 50% of them no ?

I have seen this error :
EHCI controller unable to take control from BIOS
unable to obtain ownership: 0xe00002be
UIMInitialize : Error Occured ( 0xe00002be )
Then I got : Still waiting for root device ...
And then it stay here ...

I have disabled the USB port, I now just have this error : Still waiting for root device ...

I am currently reinstalling OSX completely, I will let it untouched for testing only ;)
And when everything will be fine I will use it for my own project !
Thanks !

EDIT2 : Using ##### Legacy : No Wifi ( It was enough for me to don't use it ;) )

Let's try to solve direct HDD boot problem.

Copy this to the /Extra/Extensions folder

Attached File  Extra_Extensions.zip   245.52KB   4 downloads

with the dsdt i sent you in /Extra you can remove NullCpuPowerManagement kext, LegacyRTC kext, EvOreboot kext, from /Extra/Extensions folder, then repair permissions by Kext Utility.

You can also try in com.apple.Boot.plist to add

<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
USBBusFix=Yes

Then ensure you have chameleon RC5 v 7xx and reboot without fear :wacko:

Come back and tell us. :wacko:

Hi, i've done exactly what you said : dsdt in extra folders, deleted .kext you said, and copied your .kext in the extra folder and ... I can't boot a,ymore !

Please shutdown message ...

I can still have acces to windows but I can't do anything with mac...

But thanks for trying to help me :wacko:

I will wait for your reply if I need to reinstall or I need to do something for repair this ;)

Edit: I was able to boot with this : -x -v maxmem=2048 ForceWake=y USBBusFix=n on ##### cd
The same argument don't work without cd...
It seems that chameleon haven't overwritte the old loader, I'm trying to retry to install chameleon rc5 v750 ;)

Edit2:
Chameleon v760 installed : don't boot, I'll try a newer version ;)

Edit3: newer version don't boot, using some arguments with ##### cd I still have access to osx, tried chameleon helper/utility, but it crashed and won't work anymore now...

Try repairing permissions manually from terminal. This way...

cd /Extra
sudo chown -R root:wheel *
sudo chmod -R 755 *


Then try to boot again from hdd but use this parameters in.

-f -v arch=i386

If not working try adding to the command line cpus=1 too.

Ensure theres only one copy of the DSDT and it's in /Extra and its name is dsdt.aml and no DSDT present in /

If it still panics paste screenshot and we'll see further. ;)

I've done verything :unsure:

Now I have a panic from the CPU, I will post a screen ASAP :unsure:
It seems that there is a problem between my CPU and the .kext assimilated to CPU Management ;)

Edit: it's hpet in dsdt who seems to be the problem, but you telled me that you have patched it for hpet :s

Edit2: I've patched dsdt.aml for hpet and I now have a still waiting for root device lol!

Edit 3 : Now I've choice between : HPET error or Root device error lol !
And my usb ports don't work ... I just tested it them and they don't work :S

Resume : HPET or Root device error
No USB ports
No battery %
Black screen when Shutdown / reboot

I don't have any forcewake-y message, I've done the rm method and hibernate 0

If you want some screen I will give you ;)

Edit4: no more black screen on shutdown, but remain on reboot ;)

For restart problem try adding

<key>RestartFix</key>
<string>yes</string>

to com.apple.Boot.plist and let chamaleon do the work.
