I used the kext from Kexts.com. I put it in the OSX/Extra/Extensions folder. I also used ElliotforceLegacy kext to try and fix the bios reset since I have a dual boot with Win 7. I would try to install the ev0reboot kext again. Then if that doesn't fix it then Elliotforcelegacy.kext. The kext did not fix the bios reboot issue and I don't know enough to go in and edit dsdt file.

Thanks for your help! I managed to fix it but didn't need either of the kexts you mentioned. Since I recently started using an external card for audio, I had neglected to re-install the 10.6.2 AppleHDA kext after updating to 10.6.5. After I installed that, the restart/shutdown has been working fine. I'm using ev0reboot or Ellitforcelegacy.

What bios reboot issue are you having? I have a dual boot with Win 7 too and it's working fine...

I had the same issue but I fixed it with EvOreboot kext. All is good now.

Hmm that didn't seem to work for me. Do you mind posting the ev0reboot kext you're using? Maybe I grabbed an older version? Also, did you install it in /Extra/Extensions or S/L/E? Thanks for your help!

Ever since updating to 10.6.5, I'm having trouble shutting down and restarting. The system just hangs after I hit shutdown and restart. Anyone else having that issue?

Hi guys, wondering if you could chime in on a USB problem I'm having. When I plug my iPod Touch into the USB 3.0 ports in the back, it charges fine, but iTunes does not recognize the iPod as plugged in. It works normally in all the other regular USB 2.0 ports though. I was just wondering, if that just because Apple doesn't support USB 3.0 yet? Or is my system messed up in some way? Do you guys have iPods/iPhones mounted fine in iTunes through USB 3.0? Thanks in advance for your help!

I have a Rev 2 board, I tried all the other DSDTs posted on this thread, but one I had originally used on a Rev 1 board worked best for me (lower temps and better overall functionality). I have everything working including Sleep. Only problem, of course, is that the Ethernet only works in 32-bit. Workaround is to get a cheap $10 PCI Ethernet card or a cheap $10 Wireless USB Adapter. (I'm using wireless).

I'm betting a lot of issues people are having are related to driver installations and not only DSDT. This is what I did to get my rig up and running:

I did a fresh install from an existing Mac. Used UInstaller to install 10.6, then the 10.6.4 combo update. Then used ##### to install all the necessary drivers, these are the options I checked under the "Advanced Options Tab" in #####:
Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Audio-­‐-­‐-­‐>AppleHDA 10.6.2
Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Disk-­‐-­‐-­‐>IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector (fixes the orange hard drive icons)
Kexts-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Network-­‐-­‐-­‐>RealtekR1000SL (doesn't really help us Rev 2 people, but good to have anyway...)
Chameleon-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Chameleon 2.0 RC4
com.apple.boot.plist-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>64-­‐bit Apple Boot Screen
smbios.plist-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>iMac11,1-­‐-­‐-­‐>Core i7
Themes-­‐-­‐-­‐-­‐>Standard Chameleon

I then copied my DSDT into the Extra folder, and also over-wrote the 'smbios.plist' file in Extra with one that identifies the machine as the latest Mac Pro, but with an i7 processor. My DSDT and smbios.plist files are attached to this post.

Note about Video: I was originally using a 9800 GT. But it had annoying issues. It hooked up fine to my monitor through DVI, but as soon as a used a DVI-to-HDMI adapter to take it to my TV, the screen went blank after the Apple boot logo. I looked it up and turns out that's a common issue with a lot of video cards (and I couldn't find a single fix). I also tried a GTS 250 and got the same issues (works fine with DVI, but no-go on HDMI). So I stick with my GT 240 'cause it just plain works without any extra futzing. A 9500 GT is also good too.

Anyway, hope all this helps. If only they came out with 64-bit versions of the Ethernet driver, we'd be set.
