Sonnet Presto GE1000-E not recognized by MB

26 May 2010 - 03:49 PM

After seeing this work with Bonjour and then being dropped on restart, I realized that this NIC is not being recognized by the BIOS. The NIC is recognized by OS 10.5.8 only when during BIOS posting you will see a message posted by the Sonnet card to enter it's utility. When the BIOS does not post this Sonnet message, the OS does not see the card.
Then you reset BIOS CMOS and you are back in bussiness for 1 to maybe 5 restarts.

It's strange. It seems something happens to the BIOS upon entering the OS to keep the MB from seeing the card.

IRQ Conflict maybe?
OS corrupting the BIOS?

Do any Wizards have any idea?

BTW I am using realtek R1000 kext.

2 GUID and 1 Apple Partition Map HD boot issue

05 April 2010 - 10:51 PM

I have a working Chameleon 2 RC2 of 10.5.8 and 2 other drives I added. One of these drives was apple partition map(that actually shows up as a drive in chameleon's boot screen) and another drive which was NTFS. On the first boot everything was fine. Then I repartitioned the NFTS to GUID. restarted and then the boot was stuck on the VMI............... message.

Then I removed SATA cable for the GUID that was NTFS and it booted fine. Then for kicks I disconnected the Apple Partition Map drive and replugged the GUID (that was NTFS). and it Booted....

I am zeroing out the new GUID drive to make sure no x86 {censored} is on it.

Does anyone know what could cause this strange behavior?

PS thanks for the awesome site and info!!! :D
