Hello,

It makes now one week I try to hackintosh my new Acer Aspire V5-571G. It is not fully working, but at least, it starts.
I tried to disable Nvidia Optimus (so the GeForce GT620M) by patching DSDT but I don't really know if is has worked.. 
Please some of you can take a look at my DSDT? I am not really an expert and tried to do my best, but I'm not sure I did right, I would like to know where I'm wrong!

I also had some sleep issues and I am not able to use brightness controls..
Thanks for your help! smile_osx.png

Hi,

 

Next time attach your DSDT.

Thanks again for your post.

 

Now I have an issue with the combo Wi-Fi card. I replaced the original with the AR9002WB-1NG ((AR9285 wifi 168C 002B + AR3011 bluetooth 04F2 AFF1) to get more compatibility. So the DSDT and SSDT should be modified. I really appreciate some help on this.

Hi,

 

Sorry for the late response.

 

Does the card work in Windows and/or Linux?

I tried replacing the card with and 9285, but i could not get it to work. It was recognized, but i could not scan for networks.

 

Anyway, the DSDT method for the AR9285:

                    Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)  // _DSM: Device-Specific Method
                    {
                        If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
                        {
                            Return (Buffer (One)
                            {
                                 0x03
                            })
                        }

                        Return (Package (0x0C)
                        {
                            "AAPL,slot-name", 
                            "AirPort", 
                            "built-in", 
                            Buffer (One)
                            {
                                 0x00
                            }, 

                            "device-type", 
                            "AirPort", 
                            "model", 
                            "Atheros AR9285 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless Network Controller", 
                            "name", 
                            "AirPort Extreme", 
                            "compatible", 
                            "pci168c,30"
                        })
                    }

It goes under device PXSX under RP04.

 

Modification has been done in the attached DSDT.
