    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    Installers can screw things up sometimes. For me the best way is to install everything manually. For Chameleon, if you download from its website, there is a folder 'doc' and README file inside. To install it you need three command lines to execute. Normal Install (non-RAID): -------------------------- Suppose that your installation is on /dev/disk0s2 - Install boot0 to the MBR: sudo fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0 - Install boot1h to the partition's bootsector: sudo dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 - Install boot to the partition's root directory: sudo cp boot / No need to use startupfiletool anymore!

    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    Hi, I am using this loader for quite some time now. It is the best loader for my board so far. An option to load all of the ACPI tables is just great. Thanks again. Maybe some users would need this info to better understand the possibilities of this modified Chameleon. I personally assisted in testing it on EP35-DS3 (P35 chipset) together with AnV while developing (thanks bro again). Besides all of the other possibilities regarding ACPI, my goal was to get rid of OpenHaltRestart. Before the latest official Chameleon release there was a modified version (by Duvel or Rekursor i really can't remember now, sorry about that) so fixed FADT.aml could be loaded and thus OHR removed. Chameleon Team integrated this patch into their latest release (restart works with RestartFix=Yes param added) which is great of course but unfortunately it doesn't work on P35 chipsets. Ability to load FADT isn't integrated so OHR had to be used again or revert back to older loader (without all the newly integrated functions). So this loader gives us everything from the Chameleon plus full ACPI control. Now i can run my 10.6.3 on EP35-DS3 with only one kext, fakesmc. Regards!

    DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    Thanks a bunch, i couldn't get more detailed answer. I will probably go with MKII, m-audio is top-notch but yes, expensive, so MKII would be nice and optimal solution.

    DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    @Mathew L., iSoprano, That's exactly what i am struggling with for the last couple of days. With one method i can get Pstates loaded but then sleep is broken; if i change the method then sleep is working but power management doesn't work properly, like its being blocked from loading.

    No i don't expect them to mind read, DSDT is on my previous post, but what i do expect is some politeness. Thank you.

    DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    Hi guys, my working combination, used mm67's method with CST and PSS from original tables, EP35-DS3 Q6600. Everything is fine, temp low again and CSTInfo loaded. code removed. But now i lost sleep, actually it restarts on wake. Looks like i'm going in circles.

    DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    Thanks Master Chief Not too much, more likely didn't add everything. Fixed all of it so far. Here is the smbus stat 28 2 0xffffff7f80713000 0x2000 0x2000 com.apple.iokit.IOSMBusFamily (1.1) <5 4 3> 55 0 0xffffff7f80885000 0x2000 0x2000 com.apple.driver.AppleSMBusPCI (1.0.2d0) <9 5 4 3> 64 0 0xffffff7f80ff6000 0xb000 0xb000 com.apple.driver.AppleSMBusController (1.0.2d0) <28 9 8 5 4 3> Thanks for your help bud, i really appreciate it. Latest hint was really great, removing all the PIC bytes, PICM,PIC1-5 and _PRT returns only APIC code. Got rid of IFs there, BUF and entire section LNKA-F, LNK0-1 required for PIC; and with previous tweaks OSFL, _INI methods my compiled .aml is ~13kb. I also removed bunch of unneeded devices like floppy, parallel, serial, mem, etc. System works just fine so far including sleep and wake. Higher CPU temp. problem remained. I think speedstepping code is wrong, or something related to it (it used to work fine before these new tweaks, its the same code from iSoprano). Now bottom multiplier sits at x7 instead of x6, Q6600 native are x6 and x9. @mitch_de, i also tried iSoprano dsdt and it worked fine for me except the sleep. His board is an L variant so it works for him but doesn't work on our board, EP35-DS3. I managed to get it sleep and wake with Master Chief's tweaks, actually even some more than just sleep/wake, getting closer to MacPro3,1. Here is my latest DSDT. dsdt.aml.zip

    DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    Hi guys! yes, this is great thread for sure and in no time, i'm sure, it'll be all worked out. I am porting all these new tweaks to my EP35-DS3. A bit different dsdt from P45 models. L,P,R models have very similar dsdt's, if not exactly the same dsdt's - R variant has exactly the same one, but different bioses and they don't work the same way. iSoprano managed to get it to sleep with L model, not 100% sure but i think the same dsdt as mine and my model couldn't wake (immediate restart on wake). So far, with many new tweaks from CM (thanks for helping us bud) sleep/wake is working flawlessly. I continue to slim down the code. Side effect is my temp raised for 7-8C with the same speedstep code, used to sit idle at 38-39C, now its ~47C. I will have to investigate some more, hope i can solve it soon. If someone knows what might raise the temp i am all ears. kextstat | grep AppleIntel 14 0 0xffffff7f80660000 0x18000 0x18000 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (90.0.0) <7 6 5 4 3 1> 24 0 0xffffff7f806c6000 0x3000 0x3000 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient (90.0.0) <7 6 5 4 3 1> 54 0 0xffffff7f80888000 0x8000 0x8000 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelMeromProfile (19) <53 6 5 4 3> kextstat | grep SMBus 28 1 0xffffff7f80713000 0x2000 0x2000 com.apple.iokit.IOSMBusFamily (1.1) <5 4 3>

    DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    @iSoprano, for testing, will you remove your gfx part from your dsdt and boot SL in vesa mode. If USBs are fixed and the system goes to sleep and wakes up, it seems that broken sleep is caused by gfx.
  11. GREAT work dong! Sony VAIO with HD 3400 works just fine, resolution change etc, atom bios in VESA mode. Just great!! I am running ubuntu on it, now again there is hope for OSX. I booted SL from usb hdd. I wanted to try QE/CI, was too eager ;-) but immediate KP upon X2000.kext was loaded (with inserted ID). Keep up the great work bud !!!
  12. I updated my EP35-DS3 to new F4b bios and there is big improvement. Not sure if they improved anything else but i noticed no bugs so far and booting is so much faster.
  13. hehe thats a nice one ;-) Prices, yeah, but i don't think they are too high. The most expensive, 1500eur, but with Intel Core I7 2,67Ghz, 6GB Ram 1333, 9800GT wiht 1024MB Ram, 1000GB HDD, it ain't that expensive after all. We couldn't get it any cheaper buying components over at newegg for example. I'd like to see what Apple got to say about this now.

    The most perfect mini Hack Pro ever

    @Badeendje, It's an awesome project! Looks really great, you built an excellent little box, i really love it. After all, it ain't a mid-range box; You have powerful processor, good graphic card, better than any mac-mini. Congrats man! Of course, when time allows it, could you please post some more pics of your fully assembled box.
  15. Merry X-mas to all of you guys! I had big mouse lags with iT/QT. I downgraded both and also rolled back to 10.5.5 drivers first. But i was a bit suspicious about this, couldn't accept the fact that something was broken until i try several solutions. Updated iT and QT to the latest versions again. Created new efi string with efistudio 1.0 and i also reinstalled 10.5.6 update. No lag at all and no video problems. QT is 7.5.5 (249.24) I am running QuickTime, iTunes and VLC movie at the same time.
