In Topic: DUAL QUAD CORE OSX on Intel Server SR1530CLR

27 December 2012 - 11:01 AM

Started OSX 10.6.3 and updated to 10.6.7 on both X7DWT mobo's with success.

Bios MUST be SuperMicro though. Flashing out the DELL bios to replace it with X7DWT00.B19 is no joke. Best to have 2 boards. By lack of better knowledge I did the screw-up-ur-bios method. Do 'FLASH16 romfile' first to make the bios unbootable and then do 'FLASH16 /mfg /mode=3 /x /c /s /BBL X7DWT00.B19' AFTER having taken out THE DELL BIOS on your 2nd board and replaced it with the bad bios chip from your 1st board.

And as always, this is not for NOOBS! Thank you very much and good luck.

In Topic: 64bit p-state

27 December 2012 - 10:38 AM

I use two X7DWT SuperMicro mobo's, ModbinCD and retail Snow Leo DVD to install OSX 10.6.3, updated BIOS to latest SuperMicro (mobo had deplorable dell bios on refurbish purchase). Comboupdated to 10.6.7 and figured out VoodooPState didn't load until I finally added kernel flag 'arch=i386' in the com.apple.Boot.plist (org.chameleon.Boot.plist). Both Xeons E5440 work as 32bit processors now. Well, the thing is that the screen goes blank when all cores are at 100% but wirhout power going off. I think the power supply is under voltage then. Want to use Superhai's VoodooPState.kext and PStateMenu / PStateChanger so that solves the problem by setting fixed frequency less than stock frequency.

What I want to say is VoodooPState.kext by Superhai works for me.

VoodooPState is still downloadable via the Sourceforge site. The PStateMenu or PStateChanger (choose one of them) app that is used to monitor and set the P-state behavior (fixed, conservative or on-demand) can be found via google and downloaded easily.

Put VoodooPState.kext in Extra/Extensions and then run Kext Utility by cVad (applelife.ru or torrentmac.ru) or run tonymacx86's ###### (check 'System Services' in it).

Add the following kernel tags in com.apple.Boot.plist (org.chameleon.Boot.plist):
(do this best with the Property List Editor which is in your OSX 'Developer/Applications/Utilities' when X11 and Developertools are also installed - check your Apple retail dvd's for it)

The application that u chose to monitor and set P-state behavior (PStateMenu or PStateChanger) can be put anywhere however on the desktop is the most comfordable.


Why is M-ulti-Beast banned? I only see #####, is there an issue with their copyright.....er copyleft....I mean GPL licence handling lol 8)) ... yea, how they treat open source isn't quiet kosher, noticed that from day one as a supernoob back then: some sort of copyright notice and hidding files that were originally open source...

In Topic: OS X only boots sometimes (dual Xeon Quad-core E5440)

**** PROBLEM SOLVED: Stepping of both processors MUST match! Both XEON processors are now E5440 SLANS. ****

Where does Apple document the boot argument?! I have Developer installed and it's nowhere to be found. Nilch, nada, zero.

So here's an example where differences between C++ and C# are being laid out: c-sharpcorner.com/uploadfile/gtomar/difference-between-cpp-and-C-Sharp/

Where bare C++ is a language a few generations later than Pascal however as is being oriented for single standalone machines aka computers. C++ is also being 'republished' as language packages containing preprogrammed C++ code software that a programmer uses to develop his or her own programs whether or not specialized and in manner according to certain rules (protocol) and environments going from a discrete microcontroller in the form of a chip in a washing machine or factory to a virtual space inside a web browser window. The latter might not be well understood by everyone.
