It has to be a kernel extension that is somehow preventing sleep..

Do a System Report and look out for any non-Apple kext...

Got a Core I3-3225 (for HD4000), 8 GB ram and Crucial M500.

Upgraded to latest 839M 816M OZ bios and installed 10.8.5 directly via USB bootable key.

 

Just had to patch audio and got all running fine including sleep, USB3 and speedstep.

 

Nice work on that bios, guys!

It has 2 Thunderbolt ports that can be used as Mini-Display ports if you want to do it this way. For what you intend to do (connecting Apple Cinema Display) it will work.

great, thank you, IronManJFF. Provided I have a proper i5 or i7 CPU w/ Intel HD4000 buckled up.

Wonder if Intel has a more powerful graphics chips in the forge to integrate into future ix CPUs ..

Thunderbolt is much more than mDP.

Yep. And w/o a being backed up by a GPU in the underlying chip-set (proper CPU/GPU combo in this case), it's only Thunderbolt, w/o mDP, right?

(trying to get back on par here step-by-step)

Hi. I've got my AOS up and running with 10.8.5 and everything so far seems to be working really well except for the audio. I've trawled through the posts here but the only instructions I could find about patching the audio didn't work for me. I'd be really grateful if you could explain how you managed to get your audio patched.

 

Thanks

+1 for this. I can't get my audio working either.

As far as I remember I just use the patch for osx 10.8

 

I believe I got the needed files in this post

Did you get the scratchy audio problem? I'll try this but people have reported problems.

My PNY GTX 650 finally worked when i flashed with the 816M bios. With the stock, 739M and 801M bios, i would get the same lock-up you report. Of course, the card worked fine when running linux. After flashing with any of these bios versions, my system only has only rebooted once.


816M is working fine for me.

 

Same here with a GTX 650. Couldn't use it until 816M. 

 

Also, I noticed that sleep was taking a long time with lots of disk writes. Not sure why hibernate mode is on for a desktop! I disabled hibernatemode following this thread:

https://discussions....art=15&tstart=0

 

It still takes a good 10-20 seconds to sleep though :(  Any better solutions?

Thanks for that reply about the audio but I'm obviously not understanding the instructions provided at the link you sent. I downloaded the Quo Legacy folder and then copied the PatchALC892 folder to the root folder (so it's there along with Applications, Library, System, Users folders). I then opened Terminal and typed 'sudo -s' (obviously with out the ') entered my password as requested and got the next line: 'bash-3.2#' then I typed 'cd' with a space after it and then dragged the PatchALC892 folder from the root to the Terminal window and got this 'cd /PatchALC892' then I pressed Return and got this: 'bash-3.2#' As far as I can follow the instructions, I then typed 'cd 108' to change directory so that I can get the audio patch for Mountain Lion 10.8 and that would appear to be what I'm meant to type but I only get either 'command not found' (if I type 'cd108'), or 'No such file or directory' if I type 'cd 108' . The Read Me for the patch has this in it and I guess it's my fault for not being able to folow what it means:

 

 

'Depending on OS version cd to appropriate folder, for example we will use OS X 10.7.x
 
cd 107
./PatchALC892.sh'
 
Sorry to bother you again but I really would like to find out what I'm not doing right.
 
Thanks

 I then typed 'cd 108' to change directory so that I can get the audio patch for Mountain Lion 10.8 and that would appear to be what I'm meant to type but I only get either 'command not found' (if I type 'cd108'), or 'No such file or directory' if I type 'cd 108' . The Read Me for the patch has this in it and I guess it's my fault for not being able to folow what it means:

 

 

In a nutshell, you have to run a script named PatchALC892.sh in the 108 folder (to patch 10.8.x osx  audio), in the PatchALC892 folder at the root of your system disk.

/PatchALC892/108/PatchALC892.sh

First copy the PatchALC892 folder to the root of your drive (same level than /System, /Users, /Volumes,)

 

Under Terminal as root user, go to the script folder:

your host$: sudo -s
bash-3.2#
bash-3.2# cd /PatchALC892/108
bash-3.2#

then run the script:

bash-3.2# ./PatchALC892.sh

You can use line completion and just type

./Pat

then use tab key to complete the name of the script, then return or enter.

 

Using ./ indicates that the file is in the current folder, standard unix shell:

. = current folder

.. = parent folder

/ = root of the drive

Did you get the scratchy audio problem? I'll try this but people have reported problems.

Honestly I gave the rig to SWMBO after installation.

I tested it and audio seemed to work fine, without pops, hiss or any problems but I did not tested it for long.

No complaints so far but she does not use it a lot for audio.

I'll ask and report if any problem arise.

The scratchy sound was fixed in one of the earlier BIOS releases. 816M definitely has the fix.

FYI, my system shuts down after 3-4 sec. Then restarts again. Someone else here had the same problem.
Turns out one of my RAM was bad. BTW, if you don't put any RAM, it will do that also. So board will not boot without RAM.
