Hi,

I saw that many people were asking for solutions on hardware and kernel panics in the main thread. I think this will be a good place to start those topics. I also think that it's better to leave the main thread for tutorials on installations because when everything gets mixed up it becomes very confusing. So, in this thread we can talk about different hardware that supports Pandora and also the solutions to various kernel panics that we encounter while installing through this method.

I know that the moderators should be starting this thread but I thought I should take the initiative. I hope I am doing a good thing. :)

I tried Pandora today from a DVD. (still like 5 dual layers left or something and not quite planning on using them for anything else, but I'd prefer to not waste discs - probably should get a 16GB USB drive sometime soon since they are pretty cheap nowadays) I first ran it without arguments, which caused a kernel panic related to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Then I tried -x -v which also KP'd on the same kext, after which I tried -v one more time which yet again KP'd on the same kext. Using OS X 10.8.3 and a DSDT (but no SSDT

My specs;
ASRock P67 Pro3 SE (FW2.10 vanilla)
Intel Core i5-3450 (Yes, IB on a SB motherboard)
Sapphire Radeon HD7850 (Kext is supposed to be included with 10.8.3 but can't find it on the disc, but that's not the main problem for now)
8GB RAM (Corsair CML8GX3M2A1600C9, 2x4GB)
1TB Samsung HDD (all important data is backed up, by the way)
And a Samsung DVD drive (SH-222AB)

I have a working ML installation in VMware in case I need to run Pandora again.

The problem is the lack of NullCPUPowerManagement, to solve you can use PMPatch for enabling native Power Management in the bios, otherwise install the bootloader on USB stick and creates the Extensions folder in Extra putting NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and starting with-v-f

I'd rather not mess with my UEFI, especially not with modified ones, so let's just keep that as a last resort measure. (not that power management works that well on this build) So what bootloader should I put on my USB drive? Enoch (used by Pandora) or Chameleon?

Enoch, once you've installed you put the contents of your extra folder in the extra of the usb, creates the Extensions folder and put into NullCPUPM.
Reboot from USB and flag -v -f
PS. I have a patched bios (PMPatch)

I installed Enoch on the USB drive, but it doesn't give me a GUI (just a simple text-based interface) and it doesn't recognize my Pandora Mountain Lion DVD (I set Rescan to Yes in the chameleon plist file).
Which is kind of strange since Enoch on the ML DVD does give me the GUI and does boot (well, until the dreaded AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement error comes up, of course)

Should I go ahead with patching my UEFI or are there still other things to try?

You must also copy the folder themes for the GUI, no rescan in plist, simply select dvd in the GUI and boot with -v -f

If doesn't work patch your bios, PMPatch is a tested tool

I did copy the Themes folder. Gonna try again in 30 minutes, otherwise trying to dump my EFI and patch it. (unless you have a way of extracting ROMs from EXE's)

I can't quite find a link to Pandora beta2, so either I'm blind or there is something going on...

yes, i tried clearing my browser's cache, not that it's relevant

So I tried Pandora beta2 on a DVD again today (now with the entire kext collection), and it sort of KP's again (well, it's not exactly reported as a KP but it does act like such). First tried booting with only the default flags (don't know which ones, presumably -v), after which I tried booting with -v -f, and then one more try; -x -v -f; neither of which worked.

If this issue can't be solved without burning another DVD, I'm definitely getting a large USB drive (don't want to burn yet another possibly faulty DVD).

EDIT: totally forgot to paste the screenshot

Thanks for the fast reply C.Frio. Could you be a bit more specific, because S/L/E doesn't mean anything to me...

hi

 

at /root you have folder named "System"..inside that you have "Library" and inside it another one named "Extentions"( S/L/E)..so copy "nullcpu..." inside it

 

or apply it with Pandora Post installation...

c.frio
