For those of us with the DSDT sleep issue Mountain Lion would help with the intel - nvidia swich.

Maybe when you will rewrite the guide you can take a look at why your DSDT affects us. Maybe a bios issue? From what i could gather it happena on the i5 models with centrino.

Ok I installed ML today. Everything is OK except network. I've deleted and installed so many kext files (Rtl81xx, ionetworking, iouserethernet etc.) but no use.

While using 10.7.2, startup -v was showing the mac address of my ethernet and usb wifi and everything was OK.

I've also used my old kext files from 10.7.2 but no use again.

Any ideas?


Edit: I've noticed something weird. When I check the devices under "About This Mac", the ethernet card shows up, but when I try to add it under System Preferences - Network, there is no option as Ethernet interface.

OK I've solved it. The problem was the old IONetworkcontroller.kext I've installed from Lion. I changed with the latest one from ML installation image and everything worked.

Mohamed Khairy,
I would like to know how the DW 1702 card is performing in 10.8 ?
Is the fw-uploader kext from mac4mat still working as expected ?
I just picked one of these card up on eBay to swap out a Centrino 1030 combo module which is only part functional (bluetooth only).
I have had an AR5B95 (Atheros 9285 chip) card around that I could swap at any time, but I need the bluetooth functionality.

i just compiled it under Mountain Lion
nearly it do as on Lion

best work
when you boot from shut down
and when wake up from sleep

when boot from restart it is truned of you need to go sleep or switch on / off card from keyboard key
when turn it on off on mac need about 20 to 30 sec to make action

i think it need some development it is already on debugging phase
but the one on use is enough better than nothing :)

exchange them (replace) it

--------

-------
about brightness i think the normal brightness if that after sleep
dont know cause of this till now hadnt searched on it not problem to me
-------
about battery to me i dont remove battery to me think this wrong and cause onetime pins problem
so i think better for you put back battery and work with adaptor and after complete charging it will be disconnected auto

Hi guys, I had just recently managed to get this whole thing working...
Thanks Mohamed Khairy for the guide, now I'm able to dual-boot Windows and Mac OSX.

By the way, I might have a little problem with my USB ports, one of my USB 3.0 doesn't work.
Although I had not plugged in any USB devices, I receive this message once in a while.

"Because a USB device was drawing too much power from your computer, one or more of your USB devices have been disabled.

If I remember correctly, I used to have this warning in Windows back in the days. Anyone might have any idea what's wrong here? I can't sync my iPhone :( I did try plugging into a USB2.0 port and the error was iTunes can't read this iPhone device.

Oh, and how to I set the Brightness key to work?

http://forum.noteboo...0-bios-mod.html

about vesa I am doing tries

first there is area
20 03 00 01 58 02
I patched it but noting

and then the modes on bios
is
640*480 --> 80 02 e0 01
800*600 ---> 20 03 58 02
1024*738 -> 00 04 00 03

if you searched for this you wil find from every one about 10 searches or more

I found area contain resoulation with Hz
begain with 20 03 58 02 3c 00 01 00
followed by other resoulations
tried to patch
00 04 00 03 3c 00
to get 1366*768 60hz
but nothing new
the zone we must to patch is on one of 10 searches !!
If I had more time I whish to contine but no time here
you can see on chameleon before enter OS X on vedio info it read bios and analysis it and get vesa modes see on it you can from it get correct zone

nearly will do guide soon no more wait
and if we get vesa mode and touchpad driver will make them as update

about clover bootloader
I got a huge problem with it that the notebook is too slow to not able to use it and this problem till now hadn't fixed by developer :(

so the ones how want to use it .. use it by yourself

Normally, chameleon read the native resolution from EDID, then change a single entry in VBE. I think it's better to patch the bootloader.

On the other hand, I extracted the vbios from linux and it have some interesting changes from the bios.

i already did try on chameleon source to add our card id but nothing it need edit on code it self and i don't have programming basic for that
i told chamleon team about that but nothing
so i go to anther solution to edit one vesa mode with our screen resolution and solve it

will see comparsion between two bios and try it

thanks for your finding

if you have experience on how to get debugging of kernel
under windows and ubuntu
try to get debugging of our touch pad under this two system as nearly we will need them
