Actually it's in /Extra. If you google DSDT Editor that is a really good (and easy) way to extract your DSDT. If you can't figure it out let me know. :)

Nope, it's neither there nor anywhere else. I do not have a dsdt. Search function also tells me no result.

BTW: can you PM me a link to a working Lion?

Did you not get my PM earlier?

Did you google DSDT Editor?

Yes I googled it, it asks me to open a DSDT file that I don't have!
And yes, I received your PM, I downloaded iAtkos L2 and burned it. Now I will first update to Lion and then do the DSDT thing. I'll report.

With DSDT Editor, it can also extract your DSDT, so it will essentially create a new DSDT file for you.

Oh cool, I'll do that and post it here. Thanks!

Ok, here is my extracted DSDT: Attached File  MyDSDT.zip   19.29KB   4 downloads
I'll get some info on upgrading to Lion meanwhile.

If you follow the instructions in my PM, you will be able to upgrade to Lion.

Hopefully LatinMcG will be able to fix your DSDT soon; I have an issue with my wireless card dropping the connection all the time (even though the router is in the same room).

You got mail. But no positive response. I get boot1: error after failed installation. Did exactly like you said.

Try this to set your OS X partition as active:

Open Terminal (obviously from your backup partition) and type:

diskutil list

You will see something like the following:
/dev/disk0
   #:					   TYPE NAME				    SIZE	   IDENTIFIER
   0:	  GUID_partition_scheme					    *120.0 GB   disk0
   1:					    EFI						 209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:				  Apple_HFS Macintosh HD		    119.7 GB   disk0s2
/dev/disk2
   #:					   TYPE NAME				    SIZE	   IDENTIFIER
   0:	 Apple_partition_scheme					    *119.5 GB   disk2
   1:	    Apple_partition_map						 32.3 KB    disk2s1
   2:				 Apple_HFSX Time Machine Backups    119.5 GB   disk2s2
As you can see, on my MacBook the OS X partition (Macintosh HD) is on disk0. Note whatever number your disk is. Now type:

sudo fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0

with rdisk0 being the disk containing your OS X partition. Ignore any errors that come from the above command. Now you will be needing your partition number; in my example, looking at the diskutil list, the Macintosh HD partition is 2. Based on your partition number, type:

f 2

with 2 being your partition number. Once that's done, type the following commands:

write

y

exit

and try booting again.

I tried it but wouldn't boot. So I restored my backup (did it with Clonezilla from live-CD). Now I can dual boot Win7 and Mac 10.6.8 again. Eish! :weight_lift:
I'll look for another Lion distro maybe GM? And try it with that.

There is another way. Sometimes uninstalling and reinstalling Chameleon works. Reinstall Lion again and do this:

Open Terminal and run the following commands:
sudo -s

[enter your password]

mkdir /EB

cp -R /Extra /EB

rm -R /usr/local/bin

cd /usr/standalone/i386

mv ./boot.efi /EB

mv ./Firmware.scap /EB

cd /usr/standalone

rm -R ./i386

mkdir /usr/standalone/i386

mv /EB/boot.efi /usr/standalone/i386

mv /EB/Firmware.scap /usr/standalone/i386
And you're done. Now run this package and see if it works.

if u separate disks physically it will work with less headaches.
(desktops.. or laptops with 2 hard disk capability.. or swap drives with extra caddy if option available)

one for WinXX, Linux (max 4 primary or 3 primary and rest logical)

and Second disk for os X in GPT GUID mode.

in windows use easybcd to
1: write win7 mrb to disk1 err 0 (on port 0)
2: add Linux with Grub2 and Name it OsX & Linux
(DO NOT ADD OSX from EASYBCD if on separate drives as im suggesting in this post.. i tried both mbr and EFI and fails always, use linux instead with grub2 AND install Linux mint 10 or higher or ubuntu on same windows disk connected to port 0 of mobo, os x on port 1. boot from port0 win disk to linux and osx.. to osx chameleon menu :)
edit linux grub to add custom section #40 u add osx with Chainloader+1

menuentry "Mac OS X on HD1" {
insmod hfsplus
set root=(hd1)
chainloader +1
}

Hi guys, I don't have a seperate empty HD where I could do that I have to manage it with one single HD. Currently I am a bit demotivated to try Lion upgrade. I wanna try it later. Can you assist me with DSDT first? I'd like to have Webcam and Mic running maybe Sleeping also (if possible). Where should I start? My DSDT is posted above.

Webcam might be fixed by DSDT, but Mic is a VoodooHDA issue. For sleep, look up the SleepEnabler for your current SL version (i.e. SleepEnabler 10.6.7)

I'll see what I can do about DSDT, but LatinMcG would know more than me on that (hence his title):)

sleepenabler isnt needed.. usualy ehci (usb) dsdt fix fixes it.

the webcam might be non uvc compliant.. use camtwist.

ill be looking at dsdt for next 1 hr.

EDIT patched.. let me know how it goes.

i will need ioregistry before.. and after dsdt

Hi, thanks for the dsdt. I did following:
  • went to Terminal and typed ioreg > IOregBefore.txt
  • renamed dsdt.aml to DSDT.aml, copied to / and restored rights:
  • sudo chown root:wheel /DSDT.aml
  • sudo chmod 755 /DSDT.aml
  • rebooted
  • went to Terminal and typed ioreg > IOregAfter.txt
Should something have changed? The text files are definitely different from each other. I compared them with DiffMerge.

make.zip and attachments work (right click compress)

seems it could use Ar9285 fix minus device id since its 2A .. just subvendor and subsystem rebrand in dsdt RP01.PXSX under _ADR add the _DSM fix minus last }

the sata is id 2929 i didnt see it in the info.plist of appleahci so i rebrand to ich8 2829 that works native.
however i see Device (SAT1)
{
Name (_ADR, 0x001F0005)
is not loaded so you are using usb dvd drive.
im not sure yet of the fix for 1F5 address as thats sata not pata (ide)
try this .. i fixed the atheros subvendor subsystem , replaced Darwin to Windows 2001, added ethernet name and location 1 instead of 2 for wireless, device id changed sat0 to ich8 2829

OK, I installed your DSDT. Thanks for that! :) What change should I recognize? Webcam still dead... I'll try the sleep now (I couldn't wake up the notebook after it went to sleep). Maybe this changed...
Here is the up-to-date ioreg, haha I had to click "More Reply Options" xD
