Help ? Asus Z97M-PLUS + HASWELL (Mavericks)

26 July 2014 - 06:31 PM

Hi all,


I've purchased a ASUS Z97M-PLUS and successfully patched the BIOS to allow writting on MSR 0x2c bit 15 (see screenshot). I've managed to install Mavericks 10.9.3 with success, and:


After install I can boot through my USB stick and boot the local drive with "-x UseKernelCache=No'" and it works. From there, I've dropped SSDT.aml and placed it on /Extra in order to get CPU recognized (i5-4670 3.4Ghz). When I do this, my USB stops working and I believe that since I'm booting from the USB stick, it fails to successfully handle USB and everything stops there with a "Still waiting for root device". Passing arguments (Chimera) like rd=disk0s2 (confirmed, SSD) still fails.


So I'm kinda stuck here. Anyone can help (maybe DSDT patching, though it's UEFI)?


From here no options allow me to boot back even if -x.



HP EliteBook 8560p - AMD/ATI 6470M - Mavericks custom kexts?

04 January 2014 - 06:05 AM

Hi all,


I'm having some issues with a HP EliteBook 8560p (Full HD, 1980x1080p) which has a AMD/ATI 6470M graphics adapter. Most of the stuff works more or less. This laptop has a Sandy Bridge CPU (i5) but the Intel GPU has been disabled by HP and isn't available (I might be able to dump the BIOS and brute force it, but I'm not really much inclined to go that way).


I've spent already quite a few hours following tutorials and testing stuff out (trial/error) without much success; appart from the VGA output (which was working with acceleration) the internal LVDS refuses to work. I haven't got much success with the dual-link.


I've fired up a Fedora LiveCD and dumped the ATI VBIOS and grabbed the default DSDT (in attachment); Would anyone be kind enough to help me (actually do it for me) patching a Mavericks AMD6000 kext based on files attached?


If I understood correctly from several documents/topics/howto's, for the LVDS to work properly the binary needs to be patched with the correct information from the ATI VBIOS. Help? Please? :)


The attached archive has both the vanilla DSDT and the ATI VBIOS dump; I would assume any OS has the necessary tools to open the archive (zlib/tar). Thanks in advance guys. Also If there's a breakthrough here, I would like to continue exploring and improving deployments of OSX86 on this specific model in the future (this is the first time I'm looking into this hackintosh stuff for real).
