In Topic: New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

My theory on iMessage with the new 894M BIOS is that it probably works fine on a clean install.  But for those those of us who had already gotten iMessages working through the fix posted on the Wiki, the new BIOS breaks iMessages.  I have not tested this theory because I never use iMessages and don't feel like doing another clean install, as I had just done one days before the new BIOS was released.  I could very well be wrong though.  It's just a theory.


That was my experience getting it to work again.

Considering what some of us know about this board, here are Gigabyte's instructions for invoking the backup BIOS.


1. Shut off the power supply using the switch on the back of the PSU, wait 10-15 seconds.
2. Press and hold the case Power On swtich, then while still holding turn on the power supply from the switch on the rear.
3. Still holding the case power on switch, the board will start, once it does release the case power on switch and shut off the power supply via the switch on the read of the unit. (Do the latter two parts as quickly as you can once the board starts)
4. The board will shut down.
5. Turn the power supply back on using the switch on the rear of the unit.
6. Turn on the motherboard by pressing the case power on button.

So I've got the imessage issue which I've read can be solved by going into termminal and sudo and simply paste this in with your extended serial "sudo nvram 4D1FDA02-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B30102:BaseBoardSerial=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX". It never works. I've tried multiple times even with Champlist and still nothing.


Also my audio isn't showing up. I've seen some have used the legacy files to get it to work. I believe I tried them already. Anyone else having luck with something different?


My Messages didn't want to log in either, even with the baseboardserial set correctly. I found that it was only doing it with my ID, others could log in fine. I went into ~/Library/Preferences and deleted everything with imessage in it. Working flawlessly again.

10.8.5? 10.9 is out and it's free.

Finally got my sound issue sorted with 816M. I took a look through the output from bdmesg, looking for anything useful, and determined that it was looking for /EFI/QUO etc on the first FAT32 partition is encountered. On the boot for the first export I made, that was on a thumb drive, so I removed it and rebooted. The next boot it was looking at the ESP on my Users drive (GPT partitioned so it has a ESP as well). I could have deleted the partition, but I got curious so I mounted it up, made sure it was formatted FAT32 (the ESP on my System drive was FAT16 for an unknown reason. I must have messed with it long ago.) and dumped the DSDT.aml that I made into it for giggles and rebooted. I now have sound and this line in bdmesg


08:069 00:000 Insert DSDT 0x5D828200 r2  0x9D1F 0x47 "ALASKA" "A M I   " 0x12       0x4C544E49 0x20100331 DSDT.aml


So, with this done thanks go to bs0d for pointing out the format issue, and to THe KING for trying to help with the aml file itself, even if it ultimately wasn't the root of the problem.
