  1. Hi all, I'm trying to copy some contents from an Secondary internal HD to a new external HD. I keep getting the message: "The operation can’t be completed because the item “XXXXXXX” is in use." I than have to Force Eject the external HD as it wont eject. Next time i try to copy again, a new filename is prompted with the same message. I suspect that the RAM is holding those files cache'd. I've rebooted with the Secondary HD unplugged and then re-plugged it back in. No difference. I've tried the Memory Clean app, Still getting the same error (on different files). What else could i try? What could this be? I do have 2 different types of RAM working. But surely this cant be the culprit?! 1; 4GB Kingston 667mhz DDR2 (2x 2GB) 2; 4GB Kingston(i think) 1066mhz(i think) (2x 2GB) RAM speed at: 667MHz Thanks for any help!
  2. Hi all, I've installed Kalyway 10.5.2 onto an AMD athlon. Im running Voodoo XNU Kernel 1.0. This problem was non existant untill i replaced the IOPCIFamily.kext The reason for me updating the kext was too remove the IOKitWaitQuiet() timed out waiting to write kernel symbols error and speed up boot(which has happened) but at the expense of CD's not mounting. USB's do mount however. I've tried the 3.2.8 and 3.3.0 versions of IOPCIFamily.kext with no difference. Also, CDs/DVDs do not come up under disk utility when inserted into drive. How could i fix this? PS- these are not blank discs, they contain data on them.
  3. Sorry i was in another world. Been doing loads of university work, i've just been real tired. What got me confused was reading another thread which DID show changing the LPC to 3a16. But i donno maybe i missread that too... I did extract the ACPI tables and added DropDDST. Perhaps it did help. My temps at idle are at around 39-40. But installing LittleSnitch has raised by 1 or 2. The funny thing i dont understand is in my BIOS it shows CPU temp around 28-29C. I enabled a CPU fan warning if the temps go above 60 so i think i should be alright. I think thats it. Thank you very much for all the help! I learned alot! (at least in my book) Happy New Year!!!!
  4. I cant manage to find the Pstates in IORegistryExplorer but in VooDooMonitor it shows: however looking at Status tab: My temps seem high! last time i checked it was around 40. Should i be worried? I changed the fakesmc.kext to 2.5, which i believe is the latest one. Now it gives me a slightly different error FakeSMC: key info not found MSDS, length - 6 In regards to the USB controller, i looked in the BIOS. I've got USB 2.0 but no option for running at different speeds. I also dont have USB Handoff. I have a Legacy USB StorageDetect which i enabled but didnt make any difference. I also tried by adding the entry to boot.plist but again, it hasn't made any difference. I dont really put the computer to sleep so i gues its fine as it is.\ Regarding AppleLPC kext and the DSDT, i changed them to 3a16. So i think its fine. AppleLPC is running. And FireWire is fine. I dont use it. If ever i need it, im sure ill figure out how to patch it.
  5. Looking at it now my mobo does have 2x PCI-16 slots with one running at x16 and one at x8(which i was plugged into). I did buy and install 8800 my self(bout 4 years ago) i cant remember if it said it was for PCI-16 it was a long time ago. When you said 'instructions' it didnt come to mind that your were talking about the GFX Manual install instructions. I was thinking you were talkin about instructions on the DSDT part. Fair enough. Stupidness on my part but if you would have been a little bit more clear on what instructions you were talkin about i might of got it. It really wasnt that big of a deal(at least not as big as youre making it to be). I did NOT 'bypass' your 'instructions' in no way, for your information. The problem was i did not understand what you were talkin about. If you would have explained it like you just have in this post i would have understood. Please dont make statements about me being 'arrogantly ignorant' as you DO NOT know me. I am anything BUT arrogant! For your information. Fair enough you was right, but rubbing it in, aint doing justice. You must understand that some people are not as able as you might be. Thanks for your help! Once i changed the syntax in Boot.plist the errors dissapeard. I added the DSDT code exactlly as you said.(the DTGP Method was added long time ago) and my LPC device is exactly the same as in the guide: 3a16. In regard to the SSDT tables; Is this necessary to do now since everything is running fine?

  6. Ok i patched the DSDT and using your smbios.plist. Prior to this i edited the AppleLPC so it loaded, using same device-id. It displayed Quad-Core Intel Xeon than which is good BUT patching the DSDT is still giving me the following errors at boot: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failedFakeSMC: key not found BEMB, length - 1 ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - WARNING - LPC device initialization failed: C-state power management not initialized And this is my apple.Boot.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> "GeneratePStates"="Yes" "GenerateCStates"="Yes" </dict> </plist> How could i fix this? Thanks again! and Merry Christmas!
  7. I havent been running Chameleon 2.0 RC5. I was running PC-EFI 10.1. I installed chameleon 2.0 rc5 without selecting any extras. I wasnt sure if i should. Should i? I than to get the native CPU power management going followed your link. Since my AppleLPC is not loading i followed the link provided to override the device ID in DSDT. This is where i am stuck. In the guide when 'lspci' command is called the output is as follows: 00:1d.0 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #1 [8086:2934] (rev 03) 00:1d.1 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #2 [8086:2935] (rev 03) 00:1d.2 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #3 [8086:2936] (rev 03) 00:1a.0 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 [8086:2937] (rev 03) 00:1a.1 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #5 [8086:2938] (rev 03) 00:1a.2 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #6 [8086:2939] (rev 03) However when i call 'lspci' on my machine the output i get is: 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 4 Series Chipset DRAM Controller (rev 02) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 4 Series Chipset PCI Express Root Port (rev 02) 00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 00:1a.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB UHCI Controller #5 00:1a.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB UHCI Controller #6 00:1a.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller #2 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller 00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) PCI Express Port 1 00:1c.4 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) PCI Express Port 5 00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB UHCI Controller #1 00:1d.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB UHCI Controller #2 00:1d.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB UHCI Controller #3 00:1d.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller #1 00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 PCI Bridge (rev 90) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation 82801JIR (ICH10R) LPC Interface Controller 00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) SATA AHCI Controller 00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) SMBus Controller 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 8800 GT] (rev a2) 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.

I dont know really how to procceed. In this post by you http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?...entry2532 Your example code is as follows: Device (LPCB) { Name (_ADR, 0x001F0000) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x02) { "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x18, 0x3A, 0x00, 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } However mine is quite a bit different and doesnt contain the 'Device-ID' Device (PX40) { Name (_ADR, 0x001F0000) OperationRegion (PREV, PCI_Config, 0x08, One) Scope (\) { Field (\_SB.PCI0.PX40.PREV, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { REV0, 8 } } So i am really stuck..........What can i do? Here is also my smbios.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>MP31.000.0000.000.0000000000</string> <key>SMmanufacter</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> <key>SMsystemversion</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>00000000000</string> <key>SMexternalclock</key> <string>1332</string> <key>SMmaximalclock</key> <string>2564</string> <key>SMmemtype</key> <string>19</string> <key>SMmemspeed</key> <string>667</string> </dict> </plist> I belive my Mac identifier model is MacPro3,1 but im not sure if SMproductname does anything.....
  8. hmm, sorry i dont know. Im sure someone else will give you more help than me. Read this: http://3rr0rists.net/macintosh/how-to-upda...-to-10-6-5.html maybe it will help.
  9. Well god damn it, i cant believe it! HA. I placed the card into the PCIEX_16 slot and battaBing, battaBoom its working! Quartz Extreme and Core Image. I did however had to make some changes within the DSDT code for the graphics to work. I used the following guide: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/01/adv...a-graphics.html I attched my Xbench result: Score of 142. I have a couple further questions while were on this topic. If you wouldnt mind... #1. I patched everything BESIDES my LAN. Would patching it make any difference in terms of speed? or any other advantage?(its working fine as it is) #2. Under "About This Mac" i still get an Unkown processor. (in smbios.plist i've got SMexternalclock and SMmaximalclock set correctly). What can i do to fix this? Thank you VERY MUCH!
  10. No its not PCI slot 1! Lookin at it physically, its pluged into PCI slot 2 which is PCI-EX_8(in the middle). Which is what i said in my last post. My Mobo supports PCIEX_4, PCIEX_8 and 1 PCIEX_16. I know that (_ADR, 0x00010000) is PCI slot 1, im not doubting that. 'Mulcyber - have you read any of my posts?' i dont think you understand exactly what i am asking. I did also look in my mobo manual and its pluged into PCI-EX_8 which is slot 2! Would plugging it into PCI-EX_16 make such a difference? I read online that x8 should be more than plenty for my card. I attached my DSDT, see if you can manage to find it. It'll look around my self too. dsdt.dsl.zip
  11. Ok i am pretty sure that the PCIEX slot which my card is pluged into is #2. In SytemProfiler under Graphics/displays it shows: PCIe Lane Width: x8 For my MOBO i have PCIEX_4, PCIEX_8 and PCIEX_16. This is why it makes sence for it to be PCI slot #2. How do i transpose this into the long number i need? Would changing the string from '0x00010000' to '0x00020000' be right?
  12. Are you using SleepEnabler.kext? If so, you're suppose to remove it, reboot and update.
  13. Ooo, my bad.

  14. so far the only 'acpi-path' property i've found is in PCI0@0 and has a Value of: IOACPIPlane:/_SB/PCI0@0 which doesnt seem right. and i did attach a screenshot, its named 'display_0.tiff' and looks like a quicktime file in the previous post.
  15. I downloaded and installed LSPCI. display_0.tiff Using IORegistryExplorer, under AppleACPIPCI>pci-bridge@6 i found 'display@0' which has got an 'NVDA,Display-A@0' and a 'NVDA,Display-B@1'(pic). It looks like 'NVDA,Display-A@0' is in use but i still cant find the PCI BUS location!! What is the 'Property' name its suppose to be listed under? I need something like '0x00010000'.
