Please email me your DSDT file just as it is when you say you are attempting to "upload" it............do you mean that you can 'copy and paste' it as DSDT.aml into your root i.e.. / directory?

Hi tickerzoo,

 

Thanks for the emailed DSDT.aml file.....your last post is now clears up your previous post for me.......I want to see how your 680i DSDT differs from my 650i DSDT because iLeopod's 680i was never very stable and despite many attempts at DSDT modding, he could not get it to sleep and wake properly.......

okay great, with that DSDT my sleep works fine in mountain lion. Mavericks only has the LAN turning off after wake issue.

connecting multiple sata hard drives seems to cause issues & Usb devices like wireless microsoft mouse will cause me issues so i stick with wired keyboard & mouse sometimes use old iPhone as touchpad.

Wake on LAN works i have to enable it in OS system preferences  & disable it in bios.  so i can only wake it from sleep not powered off.

I have a 1TB western digital HD & this drive always causes sleep to hang so i don't use it on this system.

the main hard drive i use  is a 2.5inch western digital scorpio black.

 

my bios

disabled legacy usb  

disabled power on by PCI/PCIE devices

disabled USB resume from S5

disabled power on by by RTC Alarm 

enabled HPET Support

 

My board has over clocking section i set the control to manual

& Cpu settings like this

Thermal control Auto

Limit CPUID Maxval disabled 

Enhanced C1 (c1E) enabled 

CPU C state capability C2

execute disable bit Enabled

virtulization Enabled

speedstep Enabled

Yes 680i sli is not stable and sleep is still an issue.But verdant why i am getting black screen on nvidia 8600GT 512 MB i followed your guide but i get black screen always. That keeps me worried.

Focus on getting OS X up and running in simple VESA mode, i.e. with all NV* and Ge* kexts temporarily removed from /S/L/E and once you confirm that it is running 100% OK apart from the graphics side, then graphics can be sorted out via a patched DSDT.aml file hopefully...... 

 

Does the black screen( monitor goes off) with the system is working (hdd reading, sounds) happen when you set GraphicsEnabler=Yes for your nvidia 8600GT 512 MB?

 

If so, run IORegistryExplorer (Google is your friend) and use "Save a Copy As" to save your IOReg output as a "Username"Mac Pro.ioreg file, then send me a download link for this file and your DSDT.aml file....

 

Extract your original DSDT.aml file off the PC using the Ubuntu Live DVD, plug in a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive and then go to the Terminal and type either
 

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"
sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT > DSDT.aml


for Ubuntu 11.xx and later, or
 

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"
sudo cat /proc/acpi/dsdt > DSDT.aml


for Ubuntu 10.xx or earlier. In either case, the extracted DSDT.aml file should have been saved on the USB flash drive, for later decompiling, patching and recompiling using iasl or iasl based tools, so send me a download link for your extracted DSDT.aml file....

Hi Verdant,

 Thanks for your prompt reply. I have 680i SLI and I will send you the required DSDT and ioreg files. As you have told once I remove the NV* and Ge* the system working fine with minimal graphics without acceleration.When I use GE=yes the system screen goes black leaving the cpu running. I will send the download link soon.

Hi Verdant ,
 
this might be a silly question, is there any way we can use nvenet.kext inside the
IONetworkingFamily.kext? for our Nforce Lan?
 
or is this a newer kext for nforce/nvidia ethernet? 
 
i say this as i have it working fine on a zotac 9300 board. Which is also nvidia ethernet.

The nvenet.kext inside OS X Mavericks IONetworkingFamily.kext Plugins folder, as in previous OS X versions, is AFAIK is only for Ethernet/LAN on nForce MCP73/MCP79 systems.

 

Other nForce chipset MOBOs need to use the nForceLAN.0.64.5.kext.

 

The information I have seen on the Zotac GeForce 9300-ITX MOBO says it has the Realtek RTL8211CL Gigabit Ethernet chipset?

Thanks.........you could get a cheap used nForce + Intel CPU MOBO off eBay to put the fun back into your "hackintoshing"....... :wink_anim:

 

I still have/want to find some time to continue the guide but my "real life" work is very time-demanding at present......... :(

If you have OS X already installed and running, then install and run IORegistryExplorer (Google is your friend) and use "Save a Copy As" to save your IOReg output as a "Username"Mac Pro.ioreg file, then send me a download link for this file and your DSDT.aml file....

 

You can extract your original DSDT.aml file off the PC by using the Ubuntu Live DVD and plugging in a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive, and then going to the Terminal and typing either
 

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"
sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT > DSDT.aml

See post #36 for what I need from you to sort out your DSDT.aml for native power management. Also give me the lspci -nn output.

As you say you are a noob when it comes to DSDT editing, then:

 

1. Let me know if you can make a Ubuntu Live DVD and the extract your original DSDT.aml file off the PC using it, plugging in a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive and then going to the Terminal and type either

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"
sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT > DSDT.aml

for Ubuntu 11.xx and later, or

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"
sudo cat /proc/acpi/dsdt > DSDT.aml

for Ubuntu 10.xx or earlier.

 

In either case, the extracted DSDT.aml file should have been saved on the USB flash drive, for later decompiling, patching and recompiling using iasl or iasl based tools.

 

2. Let me know if you can find, install and run IORegistryExplorer (Google is your friend) and use "Save a Copy As" to save your IOReg output as a "Username"Mac Pro.ioreg file.

 

3. Install Evosx86 Team's Snow Leopard x64 version v1.1 of the UNIX lspci utility which works with OS X Mavericks:

Attached File  lspci V1.1.pkg.zip   282.03KB   13 downloads

Then restart OS X and type in Terminal:

lspci -b -nn

and export the output as a text file and save it.

 

Finally, give me a download link for your extracted DSDT.aml file, "Username"Mac Pro.ioreg file, and lspci output text file....

 

This way I can help you out........:)
