How do you find the motherboard revision? All Asus can tell me is that it's Rev B3, which I already know. On the site it says Rev 3.0 boards have NEC USB 3.0 controller, and Rev 3.1 has ASMedia, but mine is Renasas. I bought my board before they discovered the SATA issue and sent it in for repair/replacement (hopefully the latter). It says Rev 1.01 on the board itself.

Thanks Andy for all your help.

Apparently, the only difference between Rev 3.0 and 3.1 is the USB 3.0 controller, as indicated above. Renasas merged with NEC, so apparently I have Rev 3.0? I don't know any other way of telling...

Update: I flashed the BIOS with the modified 3.0, no problems. After deleting NullCPUPowerManagement and clearing cache (~/Caches/), sleep and speedstep still don't work...

Tried patching AppleCPUPowerManagement via Uni.beast ML and installing SleepEnabler, which just results in a KP.

Try installing it with Uni.beast. Audio > Realtek > Without DSDT > ALC892

I also had this same problem, several months ago I ended up breaking my system with a bogus driver, now I get the grey screen when I start up. I gave up after that :(


My boot loader also sometimes doesn't allow the USB to work, so I have to reset my computer 3-4 times before I can change the boot selection to boot to my windows drive. I'm kinda lost now because I haven't thought about this is such a long time. If you get it working, I'll be watching so I can try the same thing.

Anyone know if the 1tb partition limit still exists with chameleon? Haven't found anything written recently saying so either way.

Either way the limit only applies to the boot partition correct? I could have a second 3 tab drive all one partition if I wanted to?

As far as I know the limit was only on the boot partition so you 'should' be fine.

Are you using a 3,000 series bios? As far as I know the latest bios versions will break audio and last i checked there was no fix - yet another reason NOT to use those bios versions!!!

Thanks for making my system happens, Andy. Also, many thanks to contributors for creating hackintosh kexts and bootloader.
I'm currently running ML 10.8.2 with Andy's BIOS and audio from MB (No DSDT). Everything seems to be working in order, I have not had time to test DVD player because most people say it would crash.
Also, I am looking forward to upgrade my graphic card where it supports dual 1080p screen; where I do not see lag in Diablo 3.

I lost sound with 10.8.3, somebody else got this ?
I didn't check yet, there must be something new to add to DSDT or maybe it requires PCI ID patching in kext ?

Nothing else happened? Updated without problems?
I have external Sound card, so losing of internal card is not a problem for me =)

Just updated, but shouldnt have. Doesnt boot anymore, I think its due to ACPI power management again. So I would advice against upgrading for now
