Hmmm... What version of AppleSMBIOS are you running? IS it 1.0.6? And you require a 'fixed' one for 8.8.1. The OHCI modules are for USB1.1 only and wouldn't have an impact on USB 2.0. Can you get any outout pertaining to USB at all from ioreg? Perhaps you could attach this:ioreg -bl -w0 | grep USB > outputfile.txt. It should take off the SMBIOS Part, and just leave the USB info.
Hi unfortunately this means that the BIOS is ignoring the ownership reset request. For now, this fix will not work on the following HP laptops: dv8000t, dv 8323.
I am investigating the linux side once more. But very early days ....
What could I run on my machine to help sort it out ? I remember that USB worked on a liveCD I used a while ago. Is there a tool which is able to log somehow the way the system accesses the hardware ? Or a verbose boot option or so ?
