Mountain Lion reboots after initial kext load

14 July 2012 - 05:46 AM

So I've successfully installed Mountain Lion on my laptop, so I'm pretty certain it's not the install media. Here's the issue:

When I first boot, before I can't even get to the installation screen, all of the installation kexts load and then it will immediately reboot - prior to the kernel being loaded. I have Lion working perfectly on this PC as well, so it's a bit odd. All of the bios settings are set up correctly so I don't think it's that (could be wrong). My motherboard is

Asus P6X58D Premium and the rest of my specs are in the signature.

Any thoughts?

Laptop LED Buttons

23 August 2011 - 09:03 PM

So here is a strange one. Since I've had OS X on this laptop, since Leopard, the LED controls above the keyboard have never worked. When Lion was first released I was using Chameleon r755 and for some reason decided to press one of the buttons. The play/pause, stop, and skip buttons actually worked in iTunes!

I updated my Chameleon to use the UseKernelCache function and the buttons no longer work. I had to downgrade my Chameleon back to r755 to get my FaceTime to register and I had confirmed that this is the only build that allows the buttons to work.

It was very convenient to have the functionality but the 1 minute less boot time with UseKernelCache is much more useful. Any thoughts here?

Also, I'm not using a DSDT on this laptop any longer as it really messed things up when I moved my SL compile over (perhaps I need to update though I don't notice any performance difference without it).

This is in regards to my Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q701.
