In Topic: Can't enable all cores with DSDT on MSI x58 Platinum / 10.5.8

I also didn't have this problem with 10.5.7 previously, so it's very possible that 10.5.8 broke something with DSDT.

I also tried booting without DSDT and when I did that and generated a new DSDT the Alias lines came up, I removed them, and then tried to load that DSDT.aml, but still no luck.

It looks like DSDT is loading correctly, and that the processor is being correctly detected. Anything else I could try? Is it 10.5.8?

Still no luck, it won't even boot without cpus=1.

In Topic: Patching DSDT with iatkos 7

18 August 2009 - 06:14 PM

Still no luck. This is what I am doing:

Next, get DSDT patcher from here: http://forum.insanel...howtopic=133683
Run the DSDT patcher program, and when it asks about Darwin or Windows, enter 0 (Darwin). After the program is finished, a new folder called Debug will be created. Inside the Debug folder, there will be a file called dsdt.dsl. Open it with TextEdit and you will see near the beginning many entries for Processor and Alias. Delete all of the lines with Alias and then save the file. Move dsdt.dsl out of Debug into the main folder of DSDT patcher. Delete the dsdt.aml that is already in the folder. Next, open Terminal and cd to the DSDT patcher folder. Run the program with dsdt.dsl as the parameter ( ./DSDT\ Patcher dsdt.dsl ).

A new dsdt.aml file will be created when the patcher finishes. Rename it to DSDT.aml and then move it to the root of your OSX boot drive.


Is there anything else I should be doing? I still can't boot without CPUS=1
