Hi,

i wrote earlier that X58A-UD7 works fine with 10.7 DP4 (11A494a) , but i noticed that there is some issues......
--------------------------------------------
First;

Boot up ?

I use Chameleon 2.0 RC5 r1091 and it has given me lot faster boot then earlier version of RC5. But still, in every boot it is like booting with -f ..... it reads every kext - file. Normally (10.6.8) boot is fast and you straight to that point where attribute "wait=yes" stops boot up.

I can see that /Extra/Extensions.mkext is loaded but i can't see that S/L/E/ Extensions.mkext is loaded. I can't even find it in system even Kext Utility claims that it is ok.


solved with ;

I was running into the same problem with DP4, and I found a post "somewhere" on some other forum. The poster was Oldnapalm. Here's the command that worked for me:

sudo kextcache -v 1 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions

It creates kextcache and the mkext for /S/L/E.
Hope it works for you.



--------------------------------------------
Second;

Graphics ?

My system is noted up ok, i'll get that [PCI configuration started] - text and after 10 seconds screens come on and boot continues. QE/CI is not working, but Quadro FX-3700 is correctly recognized and have right PCI - slot.

You need correct Serial Number in your SMBIOS for it to show Mac Pro :hysterical:
