yes.. no drives for wifi yet.. using wired connection right now..





the problem with installing windows first and then os x and then ubuntu is when installing os x, it does not allow to install on drive for os x when erazed and formatted as HFS+...




if os x is installed first then windows then ubuntu and then used gptsync, os x does not load from the grub loader while ubuntu and windows starts proper.. (though immedietly after installing ubuntu and before gptsync, windows gives a fatal error and does not boot).. meanwhile, from the installation usb of os x, it starts proper !!!




any suggestions are appreciated :)

Hello.

I have an Inspiron N5110 i7, Nvidia 1GB, Atheros wifi. I've installed Lion 10.7.2 and almost everything works, except for sleep, wifi (i've applied the atheros dsdt patch). I'm interested if someone can provide me a dsdt.aml, because i have KP with the a09 bios.
thank you

(i've attached the dsdt.aml extracted with dsdt editor)

@Mohamed
I'm testing your dsdt with nvidia + other wifi. I've added the sound so that I don't need to use voodoohda which caused a lot of kp on my lappy. This dsdt seems to work fine. I'm still under 10.7.1 because I was experiencing too many freezes under 10.7.2. Did you know that nvidia geforce gt525m will be supported in the next Chimera release? Maybe that will fix my freezing problems but it's not guaranteed. I also tried to place back the initial wifi/bluetooth pci half minicard (Intel Centrino N1030) which wifi is not recognized as I had replaced it with WLAN 1510 working out of the box but it didn't help. Obviously it is not the cause of my conflicting graphics kexts.

Sorry for my bad English :(

I. 3 issues that I have founded:
- When I used AppleHDA and changed output volume in System Preferences, the volume slider in Volume tray icon did not change simultaneously.
- Audio format (sample rate, bit rate) in Audio MIDI Setup resetted each time I restarted the machine.
- AppleACPIBatteryManager did not work correctly (when the battery is full, the battery icon doesn't change), but VoodooBattery worked.

II. Solution for Ethernet (not full speed): Use official Realtek Ethernet Driver and change hardware settings for Ethernet card at System Preferences -> Network -> Ethernet -> Advanced -> Hardware:
- Configure: Manually
- Speed: 10baseT/UTP
- Duplex: Full duplex
- MTU: standard (1500)

III. Patched ApleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext with the same connectors table for MacBookPro8,2 and MacBookPro8,3. So you can use MBP8,1; MBP8,2; MBP8,3 smbios.plist as you want.

If you want to use MBP8,2 or MBP8,3 connectors table, change method _DSM in device IGPU like this:

Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
			{
				Store (Package (0x02)
					{
						"AAPL,snb-platform-id",
						Buffer (0x04)
						{
							0x00, 0x00, 0x02, 0x00
						}
					}, Local0)
				DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
				Return (Local0)
			}
