I have one question. I'm running Leopard 10.5.1 with EFI and Vanilla kernel.
This partiton (let's call it 'A') where Leo is now, is too small for me. I need to move (or copy) Leopard to the another HFS+ partiton (let's call it 'B') which is larger.

So, what's the best way to do it? The Partiton A is 15gb large, and the partiton B is 50gb large.

no idea... but i have also a question: Disk Monitor shows a "320KB config disk" which can't be read - i guess this is from partitioning with windows. Is this "config disk" in any way important? Or can it be deleted/initialised so that i get rid of the annoying message after OS X finished booting?

. . do you have an HDD attached to the EZ-Backup ports?

[edit] . . . sleep? Really? What are your BIOS-settings? . . S3 forced? Auto?

ok - all my settings in bios (version 2302) - who knows maybe some little setting is important for sleep that noone would think of before.

found one bug with the sleep: after wakeup my primary IDE drive (my tiger partition) shows bad smart status - this will be shown even after reboot in bios but not after a shutdown again... maybe a bios bug?

I can get my machine to sleep and wake up under 10.5.1 vanilla with EFI, but when it wakes up, I only get one display back, the video is blue, and the mouse, while it recognizes clicks, won't move. I've duplicated the BIOS settings that were posted and I'm running 2403. Any ideas?

Turns out the problem is having 2 displays. I think Natit doesn't support waking from sleep with 2 displays yet.

After countless hours of trying, I found out exactly what it was I needed. Thanks to KoolKal on the OSX86scene forums:

works for p5w dh deluxe!!! you must simply tweak your bios setting!! execute disable fonction on enable ! Max cpuid on enable ! hpet enable! memory remap feature on enable! microcode updation on enable! acpi 2 support on yes ! acpi apic support on enablr!

voila! it' should work now!! with vanilla kernel!!

Actually you don't have to enable ACPI which is important if you are dual booting with XP (XP doesn't support ACPI, only Vista) but other than that, use the latest BIOS and you should be good to go!

. . this is seriously duff info.

XP Home/Pro is specifically designed to work best on ACPI platforms, & will install by default as an ACPI Uniprocessor PC . . . & XP Pro will install by default as an ACPI Multiprocessor PC (different XP kernel) if you have 2 or more cores/CPUs.

Because XP was designed to work with all sorts of elderly widgets, it is *possible* to install XP without ACPI [hit F5 at start on XP install, choose 'standard PC'] but this is a much less desirable HAL & the OS performs (even) worse.

For a modern [multicore] PC your only HAL choice other than ACPI is "MPS Multiprocessor PC" - which is wildly undesirable, having vary basic/no powersaving & tiresome interrupt configuration issues.

APIC = another level of h/w PIC specifically designed for SMP (multiprocessor) boxes - it is an extension to ACPI & gives more hardware interrupts to play with. This hardware should always be enabled unless you have a very buggy implementation of it.

ACPI rev 2 [backwards compatible to Rev 1] gives various goodies esp to do with memory configuration - you need this feature to enable memory remapping, & at a more exciting level need it to construct an SRAT if you are/were lucky enough to have a motherboard supporting NUMA [Non-Uniform Memory Allocation] - I remember this as a feature of SMP Opteron boxes giving them 11GB/s plus at a time when Xeon boxes were lucky to have 25% of this sort of memory bandwidth.

Sorry, I got ACPI and APIC confused with ACHI <--- which isn't compatible with XP unless you happen to install while in this mode... which I didn't and is thus incompatible.

Anyone tried the esata port? It doesn't seem to be 'plug-n-play' like USB port. It will recognize my external drive only when I plug it in before power on.

Are there any precautionary steps to take when upgrading to 10.5.1? Any kexts I should backup? My specs are in my sig. Thanks!

Also, I'm running the flat-image of leopard atm (not sure what install). Is it possible for me to just upgrade my current system? I have EFI installed and I'm running the ToH Speedstep kernel. What steps must I take to run the Vanilla kernel? Thanks again!!

Well you should probably try the Vanilla kernel on your current setup since you're running ToH. One thing you can do to test it is name it "mach_kernel.vanilla" instead of mach_kernel. Boot with F8, and where you would normally put "-v" put "mach_kernel.vanilla -v" so it preserves your working kernel. Don't forget to chmod 644 and chown root:wheel the file though.
