Tks for the tricks.

 

Question : I disconnect windows hd > turn on but and the machine boot in OS X > turn off > Plug again Windows HD > F12, just one Windows boot  manager.

 

Or

 

I disconnect windows hd  OS X HD > Boot without any HD > plug all drive > just one boot manager ?

 

Tks again :-)

Just installed Bluetooth Apple mini-keyboard and Apple trackpad with IoGear GBU 521 Bluetooth dongle. Easy and  fast OOB installation.

Just bought a Quo motherboard!  Can someone point me in the direction of the latest firmware / Osmosis?

 

Thanks!

I disconnect Windows HD : that's correct W Boot Manager > just one time.

 

BUT :-)

 

OS X 2 entry in the F12 listing.

 

So I remove OS X disk > Boot manager 2 entry in F12

 

I Removed the 2 disks (no system) > start again > Shut down > Connect the 2 disks and OS again > in F12 2 : entry for OS X 10.8.5 and 2 entry for Windows 8.1

 

The Quo board work perfectly with that multi F12 choice, so...

 

BUT

Coul'd you give me more detail about that trick ?

Hi.

U can just reflash your bios and all boot entry will reset to normal.

Its the fastest way in my opinion.

Hi,

 

Sorry if this is newbie question and mentioned somewhere, I have read the thread but seems can't find the answer.

 

I just got my Quo board, reflash the bios with OZ H3B.894M and install vanilla 10.9.2 follow the wiki page http://wiki.osx86pro...p/Z77MX-QUO-AOS

 

My problems :

1. I have patched with Audio kext ALC892 but still not able to get any audio output from line-out. Audio output from HDMI is OK

Did I miss any additional step ?

 

2. I try to install Windows 8.1 using bootcamp, but it said "This Mac only supports Windows 7".

When I check, I think because it is recognised as "Mac Pro early 2008" which only support Windows 7 (btw, i'm not able to download software support for Windows 7 either, because the server is down, is it removed ???)

How to install Windows 8.1 on bootcamp ?

Do I need to change Product Info to other Mac Pro ?

How to do that in this setup (vanilla OS + Oz BIOS) ?

 

Thank you.

@samkunun: As I have experienced failures to send any sound out any of the interfaces (line out in the back or front, digital) and wanted to connect my Sonos to the computer via optical I have searched high and low and finally found a german forum, which had a link to a driver called "VoodooHDA.kext" that goes into /System/Library/Externsions, which worked incredibly well - recognised all ports, even giving the color codes - and digital out works like a charm. {I do hope this kext is not in any shape or form linked to Voldemort's blog?}

 

But mind: I am preferring SL and the great patch by The King (kudos! It is all greek to me when looking into the script....) is making the ports visible, but not usable under SL (obviously not intended to use with 10.6.8), so if you are on a more "modern" incarnation of OS X you should normally be fine with the patch AFAIK.

 

Also, the previous Apple provided AudioHDA.kext must go for the voodoo to work.


Just reporting back on the encrypted SSD-issue. Searching through a number of Linux forums, I found a link with a BIOS extension ( http://www.fitzenrei...ata/ata_eng.htm ), which could be packed onto a BIOS of a network card or ven into some area of our Quo-Bios, for those that are not faint at heart.

 

I would so much appreciate to see the capability of an OZ BIOS version with SATA security extensions. I have a couple of ideas on how to get it done regardsless (a way that requires several boot processes to happpen, but something more elegant would be highly appreciate.

 

How can I send a prayer towards the elder gods who develop the OZ.....

The VoodooHDA.kext has actually been developed by Slice and AutumnRain: http://projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=355

I said before, and I will say again, the audio fix package can be used for snow leopard 10.6.8, just select 10.7 on installer window and it will work.

 

@^andromedar^ the link you provided is for very old BIOS stuff(no UEFI), and can be used for legacy network boot rom replacement, anyway I wont hold my breath in a hope that someone else will do/test this, so good luck!

Thank you, The King, for setting that straight. It seems, I am at the beginning of a venture, not at the end of it.

 

Why is it so difficult to get at least some basic safety for data at rest into desktops.... It used to be possible before, when the world were using IDE.  :wink_anim:

Sorry, which one is the patch by The King?

Is it the "Audio kext ALC892" mentioned in the wiki ?

If yes, I have applied it, but still, no sound :(

That's why i'm asking, is there any additional step ?

 

Thank you.

audio problem solved...

my stupid mistake, i thought the "front speaker" is the "Line Out --- Audio line-out port"

found out that i should use "Internal Speakers --- Built-in" instead...

 

now left another problem, the bootcamp for win 8.1.

i have tried to force install it, it will do the partition and restart, but bootcamp is not re-run after restart.

any suggestion on how to install it, or how to change the product info to newer Mac Pro ?

 

thank you.

You install, any OS of your choice  on HD of your choice.

If you want to boot on a different OS, at startup press F12 and choose which one.

nothing special, just install.
