Hi,

I have 3 hacks (Gigabyte UD3H-B3 v.13, BIOS F12, Core i5/i7). Every PC has a unique SystemId set in org.chameleon.Boot.plist.

Software environment is the same on every computer: Chameleon 2.2svn (svn-r2187), FileNVRAM.dylib v1.1.3 with OS X 10.8.2.

iMessage is working but on 2 machines I don't have the UUID in nvram.plist. Its filename written with double dot, look at the output of console's ls:

# /Extra

# ls -got
-rw-rw-rw- 1 18882 21 Okt 15:46 DSDT.aml
-rw-r--r-- 1	 945 16 Mai 2012 SSDT.aml
drwxr-xr-x 4	 136 20 Sep 11:52 Themes
drwxr-xr-x 4	 136 6 Mär 10:25 modules
-r-------- 1 1287 6 Mär 11:15 nvram..plist
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1	 608 6 Mär 10:46 org.chameleon.Boot.plist
-rw-rw-rw-@ 1	 470 6 Mär 10:43 smbios.plist

Why i don't habe an UUID in nvram..plist on 2 machines? On the last machine the UUD is in nvram.plist.

Any idea? Thank you.

That means that the module was unable to read out the UUID form the motherboard (the smbios table was not found.)

Thank you for your answer. Is there a way to fix it?

Why is the module on 1 one of the 3 identical configured machines with same hardware able to read the uuid?

They may have a different bios version. In any case' it's not too big of a deal unless if you have multiple machines with the same nvram file and plan on moving the boot disk between the two. The primary reason for a separate file is so that the nvram is persistent only for the booted hardware.

Thank you again. I've flashed the same BIOS to every board. It's curious…
