For some reason I am unable to view the guide (permissions). I will read it when it becomes avaible, thank you for the heads up.

UPDATE: After reading the rules I see my error, I have taken out offending piece. Rules noted and will be followed.

Few page ago you can find a working DSDT for your board (P6T SE) with specific CPU 980x.

Maybe I'm outdated... but exist a i7 980??? When Intel release it?

I will do a small research about it.

THX fantomas1. ;-)

lol now yes I'm confused :o

So Intel Produce the 980 and is a 6 core CPU.

I suppose you can use the 980x if as the same clock and number of core.

Okay I just wanted to make sure that it will work with the 980 that I have, I was a little apprehensive.

Once I use the DSDT i'm assuming I will still have to patch the DSDT with my graphics card? Sound Card? I know where to get the kext for the ALC1200 so that should be good. I'll have a report for you in a few hours on how it goes. If i'm wrong with my assumption please correct me.

And thank you again for all your work and help.

The DSDT provide some info needed for your machine.
Like "config" for your onboard Audio. (AppleHDA.kext patch needed for your ALC1200)
For the graphics card I suggest you to update the bootloader and use GraphicsEnabler=Yes in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist, maybe your fermi card need a kext patch for activate the Quartzs features.

P6T SE i7 980

Everything went smoothly except I have no audio. I have tried a number of ALC1200's but none of them seem to be working. Any tips?

Thanks Ermac for the Mountain Lion guide. Was able to get it running on my Rampage II Extreme using your guide. Only thing not working is the audio. Other than that thank you again for the excellent work.

I think the dsdt may need editing as you are not the only one with audio issues. I have the intel audio but no sound will come out of any of the ports

Yeah I have no speaker icon at all. I see it in the system report. Not sure if it is dsdt or the patch of the applehda not working.

Use 1.3.5 version of appleacpiplatform.kext and try again


Does´nt seem to work.
Tested with
1. lionapp(latest)+lionize(latest)
2. lionapp(latest)+lionize(latest)+DSDT(latest, deluxe2+920)
3. lionapp(latest)+lionize(latest)+DSDT(latest, deluxe2+920)+AppleACPIPlatform.kext(1.3.5)
4. lionapp(latest)+lionize(latest)+DSDT(latest, deluxe2+920)+AppleACPIPlatform.kext(1.5)

IOAPIC every time.

Im just replace DSDT & ACPI files on the install-stick after lionizing, right before installing. Hope thats the right way to go?

*EDIT* Not sure if I should go with macpro3,1 or 4,1? *EDIT*

Thanks!

All I did on my working Lion downloaded the new lionize from the Italian forum. Created the USB per instructions from there and followed some of the install instructions from this thread. Installed after removing the ATIX6000Controller.kext so I wouldn't get the white screen issue and it installed. Put the ATIX6000Controller.kext back in with Kext Wizard and everything, but sound is working.

Got it to work now. It was wrong file previlegies since i changed the ACPI file on installation usb. Worked with v1.5 now when I set the right privs.

Now I get terrible geekbenchscore :/ (9538)

Must have something to do with speedstep not working. Like the cpu is stuck at 2,67 Ghz...
Best way to test if speedstep is working? Ive tried to find informations on how to install FakeSMC+Monitor for my hardware but found nothing on that..

1.5 seems hit or miss for me, on occasion it will still hang up, never a problem with 1.3.5. For smbios, MacPro 4,1 or 5,1 should both work fine, I use 5,1 because it's newer :) For speedstep, must remove nullapplecpupowermanagement.kext if installed, with ssdt tables in DSDT no other settings needed (i.e. enable P&C states in chameleon) Your ram looks like it may be underclocked quite a bit there in that geekbench, guessing you probably have 1600mhz capable ram?

I use 4,1 since i red it was recommended for my setup (maybe i red it in lionize) :)
Do i just remove nullapplecpupowermanagement.kext from the disk or do I need to run any script after? Dont know what you mean by: ssdt tables in DSDT, sorry. Im kind of new to this type of hackning ;)
My ram is underclocked by me, so i can use 7 cas latency. Dunno if its worth it :P

*EDIT*

Tweaked the ram to 1600mhz cl8, raised my geekbench to ~9700.. Still way to low, gotta be speedstep...
I dosent even look like the nullapplecpupowermanagement.kext is installed, cant find it in /System/Library/Extensions..

Got FakeSMC to work, and now i see that speedstep is working, clocked the cpu slightly, and i think this geekbench score (11 408) is pretty standard for a i7 920 @ 3,2 ghz. All good!

This means Lion(Appstore10.7.4)+lionize+newest DSDT+ACPIPlatform 1.5 is working good on my system. Sleep & wake, fast boot, speedstep and so on.

Seems to KP randomly when i clock the cpu a bit more, will investigate.

Thanks guys for making this tread very helpful!

Go here http://www.insanelym...howtopic=161430 and get the second method ALC_1063.zip file. Unzip it and installed the AppleHDA.kext using ####### and rebuild my kernel cache using Kext Utility and reboot.
