  1. ^ Any idea if that would also work on an FX 8350?
  2. Hi, I have downloaded MaciASL and tried to extract and recompile my DSDT, but of course I got some syntactic errors (two of them, actually) in the process. I did not have the patience to learn this language and see exactly what is wanted from this DSDT, but I'm confident somebody will be able to help me (or maybe just point me in the right direction). Background (you may not read this): What I'm trying to accomplish is to transition from my current setup to a more vanilla one. I currently run Mavericks 10.9.5, but I could only get full graphics QE/CI with my nVidia GT218 by completely replacing my /S/L/E with the one on a Niresh Mavericks distro. So now you can say that I'm kind of running Niresh 10.9.5. I have no idea why my setup currently works, but I would also like to transition from Chameleon to Clover, and that is where the patched DSDT also kicks in. I would like to get rid of the "npci=0x2000" boot flag, but it won't get past the "PCI Configuration begin" stage without it, so currently it's there for a reason. On the other hand, I would also like to replace my Realtek 8111 driver from Lnx2Mac with Mieze's, but she says it doesn't work because of my npci flag: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287161-new-driver-for-realtek-rtl8111/page-45 So any advice is kindly appreciated. I am willing to learn, but have stuck in a loop. dsdt.zip
  3. New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

    I think if it were an AMD related issue, my Linux wouldn't be working either - which indeed was the case when I first bought the motherboard. Apparently some chipsets - 990FX included - implement this new hardware virtualization technology called AMD-Vi (equivalent of Intel VT-D) via an IOMMU. To this day, I failed to understand what it's good for. If I let it enabled, my dmesg output would get full of outputs like this: [ 46.215678] AMD-Vi: Event logged [IO_PAGE_FAULT device=02:00.0 domain=0x0000 address=0x0000000000100000 flags=0x0050] Where the PCI device located at 02:00.0 would be a VIA USB controller. I had to disable it in the UEFI/BIOS, and then add "iommu=soft" in the boot parameters, so that the Linux kernel could emulate that in software. Only that way could I get Ethernet and USB 3.0 working. What I do suspect as being a culprit in this case would be the DSDT table. At the moment, I only have a vague idea what it is and what it does. I don't know 100% for sure if my system needs DSDT patches, but what I do know is that I do have other problems as well: I can't get full QE/CI with my Gainward GT218 nVidia graphics card. My plan is: - learn about DSDT tables and other ACPI stuff - hopefully patch my Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 rev 4.0 so that I can get rid of "npci=0x2000" in boot flags - now that I can boot without npci, HOPEFULLY that was the problem with your driver, and it'll work too. - profit! I know I digress a lot, and I shouldn't be talking at all about graphics in a networking driver thread, but as I found out, in the hackintoshing world, everything is related to everything.

    What is strange is that Lnx2Mac's driver works, although it is spotty at best... it is very unstable but it does allow me to connect now and then to the Internet. P.S. I haven't touched my DSDT table, maybe I should.
  5. New Driver for Realtek RTL8111

    Hi, sorry to bother, but I didn't manage for the life of me to get your driver to work. In the network manager it simply tells me that either the cable is unplugged (which it isn't) or the device at the other end (an Asus AC-56U gigabit Ethernet router) is not responding. I have installed the debug version of your driver, and will attach the output of netstat, /var/log/system.log and dmesg. In the Info.plist I have deactivated checksum offloading, so to have fewer possible points of failure (previously I had jumbo frames activated, but read that they can interfere with the checksum calculation). Also, I have tried resetting my router to factory defaults, to no avail. I can also attach a sample of Wireshark if needed, but I couldn't personally make much out of it, both the PC and the router seem confused. I know you said that npci=0x2000 can interfere with the driver, but my Hackintosh (Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3, Mavericks 10.9.5 and this kernel) doesn't boot past the PCI enumeration step without this kernel flag. driver_debug.zip
  6. Still not working, but thanks...
  7. Can anyone delete this topic please? I realised I accidentally posted it in the post-installation section. I posted it again here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/304554-myhack-amd-fx-8350-still-waiting-for-root-device-on-1095/
  8. Hello, I have the following hardware: AMD FX 8350 Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 16GB RAM I first installed Niresh's 10.9.0 distro in order to create my vanilla 10.9.5 myHack stick and the process went smoothly. However, when trying to boot from the myHack USB stick, I get stuck at the following message: After waiting long enough, it also says "Still waiting for root device". I am booting with the following flags: -v npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes GraphicsEnabler=No I also tried booting with USBLegacyOff=Yes and Force_HPET=Yes, adding some kexts (TotallyFixStillWaiting.kext), trying different ports, but with no success. My BIOS settings are all correct (SATA mode set to AHCI, HPET enabled, USB legacy enabled). I would really like some help, as I've run out of ideas. Thanks.

  10. Hello, My current hardware configuration is: ASRock P45R2000 Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 I would like to update to: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 AMD FX8350 However, I have some concerns regarding the new hardware's compatibility with Hackintosh. More specifically, I am unsure whether there will be kernel patches for AMD support in the new Yosemite. Secondly, I would like to buy a graphics card for the new build for about $100. I am not a gamer, so stability is my main concern. I have been looking at the Radeon 7970 series, but I understand they are not 100% compatible. You are welcome to share your thoughts on how I can improve my hardware specifications.
  11. Lenovo G570 43347?

    Thanks, but it seems that my machine is only able to run Leopard through virtualization, and the latest version of myHack requires at least Snow Leopard. I've been searching the Internet all day for a myHack version that can run on Leopard, but all the files seem to have been taken down. Do you know where I can get an older version of it (2.2, 2.0...)?
  12. Lenovo G570 43347?

    Only if I run Mac through a virtual machine, on Windows. Otherwise no, I do not have access to a real computer running Mac.
  13. Lenovo G570 43347?

    Honestly, I don't even care if the sound works or not, as I found out that my external card is fully compatible with OS X. Anyway, I'm trying to install Snow Leopard using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Legacy, but it keeps giving me kernel panics, saying it was unable to find the ACPI driver - that happens before the installer starts. What should I do?
