#2168460 Haswell-E mach_kernel patch (5960X, 5830K and 5820K) 10.10 - 10.10.1 Yosemite

Posted by maleorderbride on 16 September 2015 - 10:23 PM

Thank you for the test. For the moment all the CPU with more than 6 core need to use these kext. No problem! Not quite. I can use a 12-core Xeon V3 completely vanilla, and have been able to do so since 10.10.2. No kernel patch, no 10.9.5 IOPCI or ACPIPlatform. I don't need VoodooTSCSync either. Edit: Edkroket I am able to get the TB to Eth adapter to work now. Thanks!

Hey guys I need your help to update the guide. I need someone try running Yosemite 10.10.5 without a patch to see if it works. So update the 10.10.5 combo update and restart? no kernel patch? Anything else?  Installing 10.10.5 Combo on my otherwise working (see above) 5960X system. Just FYI, other E5-26xx V3 CPUs have not needed a kernel patch since like 10.10.2 or so. The i7's do, and so does the E5-2697 V3.   Edit: Good call Stinga. My 5960X systems starts up without a kernel patch in place under 10.10.5. I still have the Legacy IOPCIFamily and ACPIPlatform. Don't suppose you have found any way to get rid of those two legacy kexts, have you? My Xeon V3's don't need them if they are 4,6, or 12-core CPUs. Again the 14-core E5-2697 V3 needs it though ;(

OK, posted in Coderush's topic. I am sure what I am asking is impossible (or at least impractical), but I had to check!Thanks for your information Dmazar!

#2114647 Yosemite GTX 9xx/750/750 ti Compatibility Report

Posted by maleorderbride on 24 February 2015 - 04:04 PM

So I have the Gigabyte GTX 970 4GB  G1 Gaming and was wondering if anyone found a framebuffer or way to get the other two display ports to be detected by OS X on the card. I just got some new monitors and one of the reasons I bought this unit was because its the only 970 (at the time) with 3 DP ports making it perfect for multi-display UHD content. And before you ask, yes I tried MST and that didn't help. Are you using Chameleon? If so, switch to Clover.

FYI, there is a new BIOS update for ASUS X99's. Enables USB 3.1. Might want to deal with that first ;)

#2112230 5960X, Rampage V Extreme OsxAptioFix Problem

Posted by maleorderbride on 16 February 2015 - 05:02 PM

I think I have a workaround, at five boots back to back now. Will figure out exactly what made the difference.  Confirmed, workaround. Finally triggered the AptioFix error again on restart. All one needs to do is navigate to System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup and delete kernelcache. I suggest doing this before your first startup if you install 10.10 via Rampage's method, then again after your first startup. Add this small bit of information to your guide Andrew. After that, I only rarely saw the error.

#2111196 5960X, Rampage V Extreme OsxAptioFix Problem

Posted by maleorderbride on 13 February 2015 - 12:29 AM

I am on an ASUS X99 Deluxe, latest BIOS, E5-2697 V3 and am getting hung up on PCI Configuration Begins even with AptioFix2, debug=0x14e, and IOPCIFamily rollback. This is from an already working 10.10.2 UEFI install that I did on my UEFI X79 build. Tried with a GT 430 (obviously had to use legacy with the 430) and with a GTX 980 as Web Drivers appear to complicate things with Clover. Tried both UEFI and Legacy, same error, same place. AptioFix spits out fatal errors occasionally, usually relating to graphics flags.   Guess I will install 10.9.5 /w chameleon for now. There seem to be some bugs to work out that are not know at this time and not solved with Rampage's method, nor anyone else's that I have seen. I do not know what the precise variables are, but am happy to try things if anyone has advice.

Posted by maleorderbride on 12 February 2015 - 02:06 AM

Curious to see how that 36-core goes. My single 2699 V3 should be here in a few weeks. Also, David, you can always disable cores in the BIOS to get down to 16 real cores and see if you can suddenly boot, but from your KP screenshot it does look like you just need to do a rollback, at least in order to see the next KP ;)

#2101537 GT650M - black screen since 10.9.2 update

Posted by maleorderbride on 07 January 2015 - 07:48 PM

Email me a IOREG and DSDT from your system with the 690. I know several people that have that GPU without issues.  Thanks! Figured it out--changing UseKernelCache=No allowed me to do 50 reboots without any problem.

Full power management is unlikely to happen without Apple.Since most core functions seem to work pretty easily, there is not really much more progress needed other than Clover.  All one really needs is Rampage's SSDT when he releases, a few kexts (all available already if you search this forum for the requisite chipset drivers), and chameleon on a USB.

If you have problems with the installer mickg, then do the install on a different build and only plug it in to the X99 when it is all set up.

Posted by maleorderbride on 01 January 2014 - 06:53 PM

i try with and without GenericUSBXHCI, and i have the same problem about speed step and turbo, look:Screen Shot 2013-12-31 at 22.49.36.png very very sloooowww!!Are you injecting CPU plugin-type 1 in an SSDT or your DSDT?  That can cause a stuck multiplier of x8.0.

#1943341 New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

Posted by maleorderbride on 04 September 2013 - 04:36 PM

My apology.  I got carried way and overstated things, but the core issue is still (supposedly) this motherboard with exactly 2x PCI-e x16 and 2x PCI-e x1.  With a full-sized video card installed that drops you down to 1x PCI-e x16 and 1x PCI-e x1. Even with two fully working TB1 ports, this specific motherboard that sparked this conversation, would be less able to function as an high-end professional workstation (not just audio) than something like an ASUS P9X79 WS (Full size video card+ 5x PCI-e x16).  This Quo motherboard maxes out at 32GBs of RAM.  A P9X79 WS can have more RAM than OS X can address.  That (edit: I mean Genzai) thinks that the most important thing holding this specific motherboard back from being an audio workstation is a lack of hot-swappable TB is a severe misunderstanding of hardware.  That is the main point I tried to address.  I do not think that TB has no utility, or needs to die.  But I do place it belo...

#1943169 New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

Posted by maleorderbride on 03 September 2013 - 06:19 PM

For our applications Thunderbolt has become essential in that it saves time (money in labor) for the transfer of some content and for our large scale apps there aren't enough slots for I/O without an expansion chassis which in and of itself can be a nightmare.   Once the content is on the network it's not an issue but for getting content on and off the network and having flexibility in device interface it's an excellent tool.  I'd agree that large scale apps aren't using 37xx series processors but in my experience upgrading systems yearly isn't usually done so having a computer that is a a year or two out in technology is fairly common in large scale production.  In fact it's the standard.    We're judged on the quality of the work product, not how new the technology might be. This is one of the misconceptions that I had in mind.  With a socket 2011 motherboard, which has largely been out concurrently with socket 1155 (the motherboard discussed in...
