  1. QUOTE ( :) @ Jan 28 2011, 07:05 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Tried it,

    Boot faster but still restart after shutdown.

     

    What method did you use to install your osx?

    What Bios are you currently using?

    How many memory and HDrive do you have in your mobo at the moment?

     

     

    Have you tried a different OS? That has happened to me on an ASUS P6T before and it turns out the motherboard was defective. It did it in Windows & OS X.

     

    I am using FE with default settings in BIOS: changes to AHCI, 64-bit, overclocking to 3.83GHz, disabled turbo-boost. I have 12GBs (6x2GB) and 3 HDDs.

     

    Does EvoReboot fix the problem for you? If not, then I really think you have a hardware problem, not a software problem. You could do a fresh install with my files though to really be sure.

     

    Just tried it on Win7,

    First it was ok, but when i restart a few time, the problem came.

    Installed EvoReboot but no luck.

     

    Contacted gigabyte support.

    I may have a faulty Mobo? :(


  2. Ok, you have sleep enabler installed. No idea why, since this motherboard sleeps without it. You need to boot with the flag pmversion=20 (reference: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=196466).

     

    After you get in delete that kext.

     

    AppleHDA.kext needs to be re-installed after each major update. That is just the way it is, either that, or use VoodooHDA and have slightly inferior sound.

     

    For some reason several people are having problems with audio, despite the solutions already being posted. So, here it is again:

     

    1. Install Chameleon RC5

    2. AppleHDA.kext needs to be dragged on top of Kext Utility, let it finish.

    3. Copy and paste my Extra folder, replacing your current Extra folder.

    4. Reboot and you are done.

     

    Audio 5.1, digital audio, headphones with auto-detection, etc will all work.

     

    All of d00d's edits, up to September 28th are done. Sleep will work, and all CPUs are supported with speedstep and correct P/C states.

     

    All normal video cards are supported OOB other than the GTX 470, 480, HD58xx series, and non-reference designs.

     

    Oh, and the realtek driver is ethernet support for 32/64-bit that does not break sleep. Install with kext utility if you need it.

     

    Edit:

    I now am using Lnx2Mac's ethernet drivers. They don't see to be giving me any problems and have a higher throughput than the one's I included in the package. You can find them here: http://lnx2mac.blogspot.com/p/realtekrtl81xx-osx-driver.html

     

    Edit2:

    I attached the USB 3.0 drivers (PXHCD.kext). install with kext utility to S/L/E

     

    A mirror of the same files:

  3. QUOTE ( :thumbsup_anim: @ Jan 26 2011, 08:03 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Will definately try that, but since i have 0 knowledge of DSDT, Might have to research more of that.

     

    My problem was definitely cause by wireless card or converter?

     

    This is what I have

    Mini PCI to PCIx1 Converter

     

    Apple Atheros AR5008 AR5BXB72 300M 802.11ABGN wireless card

     

    After disconnecting the PCI card, it shutdown perfectly...

     

    Any suggestion will be appreciated.

     

    Thanks.

     

     

    Odd. I have the exact same PCI-x1 to PCI-e mini converter with the same Airport card in it and everything is working well over here.

     

     

    Could you please post your dsdt so i can test?

     

    Thanks


  4. mine too works in a very very very blue moon.

    Any solution you've got?

    Thanks for mentioning this! Removing the Airport card (I have exactly the same one) made the problem go away!

     

    Very strange that it was working fine for about five days...


  5. QUOTE ( ^_^ @ Jan 25 2011, 11:16 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Yes! Thank you, I mean it is not a good thing and I am sorry we both had the same problem,

    Mine too on post 480

     

    From what I know it was cause by me adding a wireless card Posted here.

    But if you didn't change hardware it might be a chameleon or osx86 problem?

     

    OK, this is what i know,

    1, Not Bios, I have reset, reflash to FA, FD, Back to FE not fix.

    I even tried all optimize option. Which render my OSX.6.6 went bad.

     

    2, OSX86, reinstall all new with multibeat ([url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]), and kakewalk. even tried the old by hand all terminal way, no joy.

     

    3,Window7 boot from disk 2 work, shutdown no problem. Which might mean it was cause by osx86? compatibility?

     

    Will update more result of my experiment.

     

    One possibility is that something is going wrong with the code in Chameleon that sets the C-States and P-States. Although it is a bit of work, you could try the changes to com.apple.Boot.plist and the DSDT which I described in post #493. Then the C-States and P-States will be defined by the DSDT instead being computed by Chameleon.

     

    Will definately try that, but since i have 0 knowledge of DSDT, Might have to research more of that.

  6. tried different pci slot ?

    might have to do dsdt editing also

     

    i have seen bcm44xx needing a max dma mem fixes an issue with freezing the LAN or kernel.

     

    Thanks for the reply,

    Yes i have tried both PCIx1 slot both same result.

     

    Will have to read more about dtds... I have 0 knowledge of it

     

    Any more suggestion will be appreciated.

    All of a sudden, I have a shutdown problem: I didn't change any hard- or software configuration, but now the machine fails to shut down correctly. It simply boots again a second after the screens went black. When it comes up again, sleep also fails similarly - it very quickly wakes up after about a one second blank screen.

     

    Sleep works again for a session if I reactivate it using

     

    sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3

     

    until the next failed shutdown.

     

    Any ideas? Toying with the BIOS settings made no difference, so I changed everything back to the state when it still worked.


  8. Sorry if this doesn't apply,

    Since there are no motherboard category in this forum

    and most GA-X58A-UD3R read from here,

    I tried to post here too.

    Original tread here.

     

    I have fix my shutdown problem, Seems i have a bad install.

    Now everything works,

    reboot, sleep, shutdown(kinda)

    restart bluetooth recognize apple keyboard,

    compatible card that recognize as airport etc.

     

    Just one problem....

    I just bought a MiniPCI to PCIX1 card for the airport extreme card.

    Everything work so far except i can't shutdown the computer now.

    It will cold boot after the power LED went out for 3 sec.


  9. Update, tried booting into Win7,

    Same problem, cold boot after 3 sec,

    Found that this only happen when computer is up for half an hour or so.

    If it only up for 10 min, it will shut down ok.

    Hardware prolem?

    Bios settings problem? (will try optimize settings)

    Too many Memory? (some tread saying this, will try taking some off?)

     

    But when pci slot is not used, it doesn't cold boot.

    No one has this problem?


  10. I just bought a MiniPCI to PCIX1 card for an airport extreme card.

    Everything work so far except i can't shutdown the computer now.

    It will auto restart after the power LED went out.

     

    Tried the settings on Bios start computer with LAN = off.

     

    When Card is not installed it works fine...

     

    Anyone have any clue?

  11. Hi,

    Thanks for the simple guide.

     

    Got problem after step 6) Install GA-P35-DS4 Snow Leopard Installer.

     

    Chameleon won't start if i take out the CD (Boot loader on HD won't start)

     

    I fellow every step in instruction, Do i need to configure bios back to 32bit for the first boot?

     

    I have another SLeo on another drive with different setup, i have switch a new HD to follow this guide.

     

    Do i need to make the drive bootable first?

     

    any help will be great, thanks.

     

    Update*

    Fix problem by changing HD id, Works on my EP35-DS4

     

    Thanks.


  12. I would try it again. When you get to the Chamelon screen with your USB volume listed and the little bar is counting down hit any key. Make sure your USB volume is highlighted as in the prior screen then type in "-v" (no quotes) which will show in the lower left-hand corner. This is a boot argument to have the OS boot in VERBOSE mode so you can actually see where it's hanging up. Hit Enter. Once you do you'll have a better idea where the problem is by looking at the last dozen lines or so for any errors or the last line that printed before it froze.

     

    incompatible graphic card? Try adding NVEnabler.kext to kext folder and redo restore to USB.


  13. Has anyone had this problem. Snow Leopard see's my IDE and USB harddrives but not my SATA Harddrives. I have 3 of them and they are useless right now. Its a perfect install other than that. ??????

     

    I hesitate to reply as I know so little but did you set SATA to AHCI in your bios?

     

    night_rider is absolutely right,

    try here for more information.

    http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=182364

     

     

    I am unable to get past the gray screen with the spinning thing. I did everything according to the guide. I have a Gigabyte GA-p35-DS3L. Any tips? What KEXTS should I have? I have this same setup @ my office and we need a mac...I have a mac pro...should I start by installing mac os x onto the drive then load Mac Os X and install chameleon (from my normal install of course not the new one)?

     

    Any help would be great!

     

    PS: how do i get to verbose mode? Perhaps it will have some more info...I tried Ctrl+v and windows+v...am i missing something?

     

    -v

     

    or if you are using this guide than interrupt chameleon while boot, select HDD then press down for more option.

    you need to provide more infor of your mobo, simply saying you have a problem doesn't help us,

    what is the last error you got? Take a picture if you must.

     

    I mean of course I want 10.6 but bring all the stuff from my working 10.5.5 to my 10.6 setup.

     

    After install, SL will ask you if you want to import you setting when first boot, or use Migration assistant from utilities.

    1getdsdtfileinterminal.png

     

    I can't reach the following step in terminal

    "3. When "dsdt-fixed.dsl" file is opened"

     

    I would appreciate any help.

     

    Thank you.

     

    Go to the MacLoader_SL_0.x folder
