DP43TF - 64bit mode

06 January 2010 - 08:12 PM

Ok, here is where I'm at with this confounding machine.

Snow Leopard 10.6.2 in 32 bit mode only. Everything works except that I can't get it into 64 bit mode. Here are my specs:

Intel DP43TF
Core 2 duo 3gh
4 gigs memory
nVidia 8800GTS 640 megs (working fully by using hex code in Boot.plist)

Kexts:

fakeSMC
Intel82566MM
IONetworkingFamily
NullCPUPowerManagement
OpenHaltRestart
VoodooHDA

PC_EFI 10.5 Chameleon 4

I tried running it in single user mode -x arch=x86_64 and every time it hangs with these two lines:

Waiting for DSMOS...
acpi_smc_platformplugin::registerLPCDriver - failed to locate SMC driver


Any direction on how to get this into 64 bit mode would be greatly appreciated. This works perfectly in 32 bit mode. I was under the impression that if you use all 64 bit kext that it would work. As far as I know the 6 kexts that I am using are all 64 bit.

Slan,

Dan
UPDATE: I booted with only ONE kext, fakeSMC, and I still get:

Waiting for DSMOS...
acpi_smc_platformplugin::registerLPCDriver - failed to locate SMC driver


No KP, just sits theres. I'm done trying to get this into 64 bit., I am going to buy a new mobo and try again.

Slan,

Dan

Vanilla 10.6.2 and Time Machine

29 December 2009 - 02:12 PM

Hi all.

I have 10.6.2 working well (still no 64 bit though) and I have Time Machine backing up hourly to an external FW. My problem is I can't restore anything. I hit the icon on the Dock and TM will build the center Finder, Mail, etc window. But it then just stops. I can, after about a minute, hit the tab key and it will allow me to erase the center window and resume work normally. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this problem.

Thanks and regards,

Ok, I just discovered something. Time Machine IS working trying to restore. However, and it is a BIG however, it is not loading the fancy graphics for me to choose what I want to restore. If I move my cursor all the way to the right and move it up a little bit and touch the screen, the center panel changes to the selected backup. If I hit the lower left the Cancel button kicks in and returns me to my Desktop. So my question is does anyone know where and what the graphics are for TM?

Thanks again...

UPDATE: Ok, first off Happy New Year everyone and thanks to all "Hacks" out there who helped with all the loaders, kexts and general knowledge of OS X.

Now to the above problem which is not missing graphic file or the like; it was the fact that Q/E had stopped working. And what a pain trying to get it working again. Got it working and all is well with Q/E and everything that uses it.

So here is what I learned with this "adventure":

First, the Intel mobo DP43TF is just absolutely horrible and I advise not to use for a Hackintosh.

Second, there is a tremendous amount of information on the net that I believe anyone can put one of these together.

So here is where I an leaving this now, everything works great in 32 bit mode except sleep. I cannot get this to boot in 64 bit and I have no idea why it won't or where to begin. I did all the flag settings and kexts and still no go. So I'll enjoy this Hack until I buy an i7 chip!

Welcome to my bizarro world of Intel DP43TF, SL and Time Machine

20 December 2009 - 10:11 PM

First off, after nearly throwing this Intel MB DP43TF in a lake that I live on, OS X 10.6.2 works on it (near perfectly). But getting here was no picnic. :censored:

I tried just about every Vanilla installation guide out there and I couldn't get it to work. Either it would hang on "Waiting for root device" or USB bus would not free up the BIOS. I tried (in to articular order):

Empire EFI (waiting for boot device)
Chameleon 2, 3, and 4 (USB hang)
MacLoader_SL_04 (KP with the DSDT.aml file)
MyHack_Installer_1.0_RC4_v55 (waiting for boot device)
SuperHai Installation guide (constant reboot)

Needless to say I was frustrated beyond all hope. I even tried Tiger and Leopard and I got the same {censored}, "Waiting for boot device" or USB hangs.

So I download Rebel EFI (didn't want to but figured I give it a try). I booted with Rebel EFI and got past the waiting for boot and the USB hangs. It lets me start installing SL but fails with a KP somewhere at the 17 minute left to go mark. Tried it 5 times and 5 KP's. (Now someone said, I think it was Pradeesh on the Prasys Empire EFI blog, that it was hanging on some video EFI card compatibility check. But since it was installing from the retail SL I didn't know how to stop the check.)

So I reboot with Rebel EFI and get to the installing part again and decide to check out some of the utilities and all in all it appeared that this mobo should work. So I am going down the utility list and see the last one, "Restore from Time Machine backup". I said what the heck, give it a try. (I own an alum iMac and a MacBook) So I restore from the TM of the MacBook and it says to reboot. Now I know it won't see the EFI boot partition but I boot anyway and it says "missing OS or something like that. So I said let me try Rebel EFI again and throw it in there and reboot. This time it sees the SL DVD AND my Hackingtosh drive. I boot off the Hackintosh drive (knowing full well this is going to crash and burn) and much to my surprise I see my logon window for my MacBook on my desktop. I log on, run permissions, check things and it appears to be working fine. (It even installed the RAW camera update right from the Apple site.)

So I tried getting the HD to boot (used the fdisk thingy, partition ID and what not) and it won't work. I installed Chameleon_DFE_for_hardisks but it just hangs on the Darwin bootloader.

So I need some help. I need to know how to get my nVidia 8800GTS 640meg vid card to work (used EFI Studio and that was a no go) and I need to install the VoodooHDA.kext to get my sound working. Also if I could boot off the hard drive that would be nice too.

Thanks for your patience.

OK, I got the Video Card and Sound working. I only have to figure how to boot off the Hard Drive and I'll be golden...

Intel DP43TF and Snow Leopard

14 December 2009 - 08:00 PM

Hi all, long time lurker first time poster. I have an:

Intel DP43TF mobo (with the latest BIOS released two weeks ago by Intel)
Intel Core 2 Duo - 3gig
nVidia 8800GTS 500meg
4 gigs of Crucial ram

I have tried every combination possible to get this to install and it still hangs at "Waiting for root drive..." :(

I have read every error message in this forum about USB's, video, SATA ports. This is going on four days now. I didn't want to ask for help (wanted to figure it out out my own) but it is beyond my capabilities.

I've used EFI PC 10.5, Chameleon 2.0 RC4, MacLoader_SL_04, myHack_Installer_1.0_RC4, Empire EFI_v108, RebelEFI, etc...

What I really want to know is, has ANYONE gotten an Intel DP43TF to install any version of OS X?

I've done every possible BIOS setting on this board. I've moved the SATA drive through ports 0 to 5, shut off USBs completely, etc...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Dan
