Still having serious black-screen after wake issues. I can sleep/wake for hours, but then one time at random, it will go black screen, and there is nothing I can do but force restart.

 

I do not put the computer to sleep now (same with my laptop) due to issues on wake. I have solved most of them (sound/usb etc etc) but the video one, and sound on my ALC269 laptop, continue to annoy me.

 

If I do not use SLEEP at all, then both my Hackintoshes work 100% with no issues whatsoever.

 

If anyone knows a good DSDT patch to fix sleep/video issues, please respond.

Hello

 

I don't have any patch for your mobo model, but you need make your own dsdt...

 

A guide: http://olarila.com/f....php?f=19&t=634

Many thanks. I created my own DSDT from within OSX, this was a mistake. I will make one via Linux shortly, and see how things go (current version does not have PCI0@1 for video, etc.

 

Many thanks for the link.

Hello

 

Look... Make DSDT via Windows or Linux or OSX is the same thing...

 

DSDT is in Bios, so don't have any difference when you get DSDT in OSX or when you get in Linux :)

I doubt that is true, I am using extra kexts, kernel flags etc. on Mac OS X startup. My created/extracted DSDT (from Chameleon Wizard?) bears no resemblance to any others I have edited...

 

I will try from Linux later tonight, see if it looks any better. Thanks for the help.

Hello

 

Chameleon Wizard isn't a reall dump, is only a editor... use DSDT Editor to really dump a DSDT in OSX

 

No different of DSDT in each SO, because DSDT comes from Bios not from SO

I extracted the DSDT using DCPI Editor, and it looks identical to the old one. I wanted to do the graphics injection that RampageDev has on his blog, but everything is in the wrong place, and named differently. I will just stick with not using Sleep, and I will be fine, everything will continue to work perfectly, just using a lot more power...

I discovered how to do a perfect DSDT dump from live Linux USB.

 

I also upgraded to a Core-i7 2600k.  I have already tested overclock to 4.5GHz, and using custom SSDT from TonyMac site, benchmarked nearly 17,000 in GeekBench 2.0. A pretty darn big improvement on my ~10,000 benchmark with my Core-i5 2500. Anyways, temps were a tad too high under load (approaching 90), with my new H60, but that was still too high in my estimation, so went back to stock speeds (30c idle, 50c load) which is WELL within limits. I might try a permanent 4.1/4.2 overclock in the future.

Boy oh Boy!!!

 

Is the 2600k VASTLY different to 2500 !!

 

Even with perfect SSDT, video does NOT WORK with previous settings.

 

To get it to work, you must use GenerateCStates=Yes GeneratePStates=Yes and DropSSDT (DropSSDT would lock up the 2500)

 

Then you can get back to work :-)

Accidentally deleted my OSX partition (not the first time!!!) and I discovered a foolproof way to reinstall and update to 10.9.5.

 

Use MyH*ck installer 10.9, update with combo update to 10.9.4 - restart

 

Patch AICPM kext, delete all MyH*ck stuff (kext etc.) and use MultiBe*st to install everything you need. Edit org.chameleon.boot.plist, add GenerateCStates=Yes, GeneratePStates=Yes and DropSSDT=Yes. Install nvRam module. Use latest Kext Utility to update caches. Restart and then install 10.9.5 update. Restart, you may need to reinstall Realtek audio patched Apple HDA kext, you can use MultiB*ast to do that. Restart - You are done!

 

(If you have not changed your CPU like I did, you can use RevoGirl's updated script to create SSDT, and avoid the boot.plist edits above - just add SSDT=Extra/ssdt_pr.aml)

Hey, have you gotten Firewire to work properly? I'm currently stuck with either no PM or no hot-plug. There's a topic somewhere else on these forums on the issue, but I still haven't really been able to solve it.

If you mean the 400Mb/s Firewire, it shows up, and I have used an external Firewire->ATA enclosure before to use HDD and optical drive before. This enclosure stopped working recently, but I have not had a chance to test anything since then (no firewire hardware to attach). Firewire is DISABLED in the BIOS, but is still showing up as green and active as a network connection (also, in the list when adding new networks), so I can only assume it is working under OS X Mavericks (even when disabled in BIOS). As a matter of fact, I believe I have ALWAYS had it DISABLED in BIOS  !!!!

 

That might be the trick in getting it to work?!

 

Best of luck.

 

PS. I used ACPIPlatform rollback (10.8.1), even though it did not seem necessary. You can try this with M*ltiBe*st if you still cannot get it working (this is apparently good for undetected/dysfunctional hardware).

Hmm. That makes no sense. And no, my firewire works but hotplugging is shot. I know the cause is something to do with _GPE notifications in the DSDT but haven't been able to solve it yet.

Either way, I'm not touching ##### with a ten-foot-pole. Nothing good's ever come out from that.

Thanks anyway!

Also what about the sound? Using Voodoo?

Do you even READ? I am using an MSI motherboard...

 

My entire setup RELIES ON ##### TO WORK.

 

I am running a DSDT-FREE install.

 

Read my guide before commenting. Are you like 4 years old?

 

I use patched AppleHDA with optical digital output.

 

No wonder you cannot get the simplest thing working.

Uhhh. What brought that tantrum about?
Newsflash: I am also using an MSI board (since it's the exact same as yours) and I fail to see how that is at all relevant. I haven't used ##### and will not use it either; and if by "the simplest of things" you mean griping that an otherwise fully-functional UEFI build is giving me a bit of work with firewire hotplugging and 5.1 audio...
Frankly, I'd say it's you who has no idea what he's doing.

I don't know what I'm doing? I HAVE FIREWIRE!!!

 

I was reading your build specs in your signature. Also, the fact that you did not read any of the previous three pages, made me think you were using a different motherboard.

 

The firewire in question is VIA VT6308P (which I assume is using the Texas Instruments chip), as it has always worked OOTB for me. Apple dropped support for all firewire devices that didn't use the TI chip in Snow Leopard+.

 

PS. Sorry for the outburst LK - It is like asking a Porsche expert to fix your Ferrari.  :)

 

If you read any of the previous 3 pages, you would understand I am using a NON-UEFI, NON-DSDT, Chimera and MultiBe*st based install. I have done this same method of install on three or four recent machines, including a laptop (which DID require a DSDT made for it). This is the only type of install I know how to do, and it works consistently.

 

If you refuse to use one of my MAIN TOOLS, that installed the 10.8.1 ACPIPlatform kext rollback, which (possibly) allows firewire to work (and you could copy over to your EFI/Clover partition) -- then I cannot help you. I have never been able to get Clover working on this motherboard (black screen). I never got Firewire400 hot-plugging to work on MacOS9.2.2 or 10.5.8 on real Apple hardware (original G4 iMac).

 

THAT BEING SAID, someone else without Firewire on 2600k, P67A-GD55 (B3), got a custom DSDT made by MaLd0n here -> http://www.insanelym...21#entry1714561

 

It might come in handy :-)

 

EDIT: found on SL forum -> Delete HPET driver in extensions. HPET steals FW IRQ  <---DON'T DO THIS Lord Kamina!!!

 

EDIT: There is a HPET and IRQ fix in DSDT patchers. Boot with -v and watch for the firewire/1394a info.

 

Cheers and best of luck.

Just discovered I only need DropSSDT=Yes --- none of the other GenerateXState=Yes...

 

You ONLY need DropSSDT=Yes, with working SSDT.aml (and for luck, ssdt_pr.aml) in the /Extra folder.

 

CPUPM seems a bit too sensitive, but still works fine.

The signature is an old build; and from that build onwards I've decided in the end DSDT makes things much cleaner, which is why I'm using it from then onwards.

 

I have gotten firewire to work but hotplugging specifically is still broken. It's being a bit more difficult than I thought because our board's DSDT is structured with a device inside a device (RP05->FWBR->FRWR) instead of just "RP05->FRWR"

 

Re: HPET IRQ I had read about that and at some point I patched my HPET and Firewire to use different IRQs but that didn't solve the problem because, as I say, I think it's fully to do with power management notifications and nesting of devices in the DSDT.

 

I'll check that link you posted.

 

I've gotten PM with the ssdtPRGen script and I'm currently taking a new shot at getting analog 5.1 working via AppleHDA.

Some really handy info here (assuming the same error is in startup - it is not in mine from memory, but a lot of text goes by, and you could easily miss it.)

 

http://www.insanelym...irewire-issues/

 

This gets hotplug AFTER SLEEP on Gigabyte mobos, but you could find it useful?!

 

Try the AFTER-SLEEP method, and see if hotplugging returns.

 

Have a look through this DSDT file -> http://www.4shared.c...001_-_v30_.html

I am starting to think this is for 1394b FW800, but hotplug is working on this ASUS mobo.

 

Another DRASTIC step is removing AppleHPET altogether. This might be possible if you enable forced HPET in Chimera (dunno the command in Clover).

 

I have no firewire devices to test this, I got cables, but no devices.

 

Best of luck.


Open Console and view your logs, see if you can see any Firewire errors.

 

I think you need an aggregator like SoundFlower to get multi-channel analog sound, and it is not true surround. You are better off getting a receiver (like my Kenwood) that supports optical and coax digital (automatic). Stereo all the time, until you use passthrough AC3/DTS. I tried multi-channel for my music, and it sounded like {censored}. All the built in pseudo-surround features make it sound sh*tty too.

 

There is software (sleepwatcher?) that lets you unload and reload required software after sleep to get audio working after sleep again. I think it might even be restarting the audio service.

 

I'll just stick with never sleeping, seeing speed-step is working so well :-)
