the sata shows as ich8m
the airport shows as 8F apple subsystem id
nothing major.. however the Windows 2001 to Darwin might make it run cooler or speedstep.

the webcam i think it needs some special attention soon :P

Ah cool, I will try to activate Speedstep in BIOS and see whether it boots up!
What about ACHI Mode? Shall I leave it on "Enabled"?

One more success:
I managed to be able to deactivate my Bluetooth! I had to edit the kext file IOBluetoothFamily (put the correct PID for my device). I only had to change one single character! :)
The Broadcom Vendor ID is 0A5C, hence as Decimal in the kext it should be 2652, this was correct. So I checked the device ID/PID and it says 2101, so as Decimal in the kext there should be 8449 but there wasn't! There only was 8448 so I changed it to 8449, deleted the Extensions.mkext in /Extra and rebooted with -f flag. Baam! I'm able to deactivate BT now! :king:

Soon I will post my Marvell Yukon 88e8050 kext and the Broadcom Bluetooth kext for other people with same issues who read this thread.

Awesome, sukati! :D

AHCI mode should remain enabled, unless you want to use a third-party kext.

also enable execute disable bit.
the wake issue is likely u have Secure virtual memory in security icon of settings. uncheck it.

or usb issue.. make sure u have no sleepenabler and no intelcpudissabler
(enable usb wakeup S3 in bios and redump dsdt from linux then we can compare originals unmodified to see what changed)

whats the devid and pid of webcam?

OK, I set my BIOS.

As for Webcam:
Vendor 174F => Integer = 5967
Device ID (PID) 5913 => Integer = 22803

Regards.

Hey guys, can you tell me, which driver is responsible for the touchpad? I want to restore the driver from 10.6.3 because it worked OOTB just fine. After update it fails frequently, even with the driver you posted here before. I'll try it with the "old" one. Can you tell me what I have to replace?

fails frequently is likely irq issue.. might have to check what irqno in dsdt is there

Actually I had kind of a related question: is IRQ necessary at all? Or can all IRQs be removed from one's DSDT?

Hm? So what am I supposed to do now? I just would like to use the old driver... Which one is it?

Another question: after a restore of Mac OS with Clonezilla onto a larger partition Mac OS still "thinks" it is a small one. I.e. "only 4 GB free space" instead of "25 GB free space" as it should be. How can I make it recognize the correct partition/free space size?

Ok guys, I fixed my trackpad with a kext from osx86. Scrolling horizontally and vertically works now (after turning it on in trackpad system settings). The driver that works for my synaptics touchpad can be found here (only download TRACKPAD.SYNAPTIC-GESTURE.zip): http://www.osx86.net...VNUVVJFLnppcA==

I also want to share the other drivers that work well for my Samsung Q210:
Here is my Marvell Yukon 88e8055 kext:
Attached File  IONetworkingFamily.kext.zip   1.03MB   15 downloads

Here is my Atheros AR5B91 driver (the native from 10.6.8 wouldn't activate with boot, so I just use the one from 10.6.3 Retail which works like a charm):
Attached File  Apple80211Monitor.bundle.zip   190.17KB   8 downloads

And here is my Bluetooth kext, making it possible to deactivate BT:
Attached File  IOBluetoothFamily.kext.zip   1.22MB   20 downloads

Sleep enabler for 10.6.8, copy to /Extra/Extensions and restore permissions (e.g. with pfix in Terminal if you installed it):
Attached File  SleepEnabler.kext.zip   19.59KB   4 downloads

The only open hardware issue is: Integrated Webcam by Syntec (USB2.0 UVC)

The only open software issue: Mac OS doesn't recognize the real free space on the partition! => Solved, read on.
It says:
Capacity: 47.66 GB
Free: 1.44 GB
USED: 14.85 GB
Does anyone know how to fix this? This occurs I guess after restoring my Clonezilla backup onto a formatted hfs+ partition. Please help. Google isn't that friendly because the problem is quite special.

Hm, they're talking of Win7 all the time. I don't quite know if that will help me.
Do you think I could make a backup with time machine on an empty partition, boot with Mac OS DVD, erase my current Mac OS and restore the one I backed up before?
Will it then be bootable? Or will it mess up Chameleon?

EDIT: Just tried it, but after choosing the backup it tells me: You can't restore this backup because it was created with a different Mac model. (see screenshot)

What else can I try? Install 10.6.3 and then merge??

u can show all files and copy it to new partition. then install chameleon . done

1) Ok, I am copying right now from my running Max OS to my empty HFS+ all the files that are in / including hidden files. Is that correct? Or will it skip files that are currently "in use"? Have I forgotten anything?
2) After the copy action I want to erase my running partition and copy the files back (from [let's name it] HFS+ partition). I will do this by booting from Mac OS DVD. OK?
3) I am confused how to install Chameleon now. I found a guide, but it implies a running system. But I will delete my Mac OS partition after copying has finished. How do I install Chameleon then? By booting with Mac OS DVD and running commands in Terminal?
4) Do I have to consider anything because of my multi boot or will Chameleon work just as it did before without messing up my MBR?

Thanks by the way for your help. I appreciate it!

if it does give issues by in usre. u can clone with disk util to another then boot that and clone original to partition. theres ways arround it. resize parittion hfs+ should be methods. i havent tried it in over a year so forgot results

MBR and osx partitioning isnt my thing.. i tried it and found way much more reiable to not mix disk partitioning types .. separate physical drives for me.

What you do is install the OS, boot your new installation with whatever media you use to install (ModCD, ######, etc), and then install Chameleon from one of the pkgs downloadable from the Chameleon buildbot.

If you can't figure it out, try using Chameleon Wizard to download it.

If you still are feeling queasy, I can put up a link to the pkg here. :)
