  1. Sorry. I followed your guide to install OSX on my mobo (P35-DS3) and I thought your mobo also had the JMicron slots mine has. Anyway, if anyone manages to make eSATA hot-plug work in the default orange slots, I'd love to know. I didn't use the search because I monitor this topic via e-mail (I get one every day with updates) and I didn't recall that post. Maybe it's because I didn't know that FakeSMC was responsible for sensors monitoring until a few days ago We should have a per-mobo wiki or something. It would be way easier to find and update info about a specific mobo.
  2. Problemas com SpeedStep na GA-P35-DS3

    Então, eu sei que eles são desnecessários, mas meu arquivo DSDT deve estar com algum bug que não encontrei ainda. Por enquanto, a máquina tá funcionando 100%, ainda que dependa dos Kexts. Eu quero removê-los por uma questão de praticidade: tirar o NullCPU é uma dependência a menos e tirar o SleepEnabler facilita quando sai um update do OSX. Só que pra isso eu preciso parar e analisar o arquivo DSDT com calma, e ainda não tive tempo/paciência pra isso
  3. Problemas com SpeedStep na GA-P35-DS3

    Eu vou dar uma olhada nos patches que esse seu auto-patcher aplica. Kext eu sei que não é, meu Chameleon tá atualizado, a única coisa que pode ser é o arquivo DSDT (eu uso um pré-modificado, talvez valha a pena eu extrair um zerado e só aplicar os patches nele). Instalar de novo do zero é impraticável pra mim. Eu trabalho nessa máquina e já deve fazer cerca de um ano que ela tá estável (eu só tenho que deixar o Kext lá).
  4. Fala galera. Eu tô com um problema meio bizarro aqui. Eu consegui habilitar os P-States e C-States via Chameleon RC5, mas ele só funciona se eu MANTER o NullCPUPowerManagement.kext no /E/E. Eu sei que tá funcionando porque usando o último release do FakeSMC junto com o IntelCPUMonitor, no SMC Monitor ele mostra a frequência e tensão dos dois cores (C2D E6750), e se eu mudo a carga no sistema ele altera os dois conforme necessário (pula de 2 GHz pra 2.67 GHz) e o barulho do cooler da CPU também altera de forma perceptível. Se eu tiro o NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, meu sistema fica completamente instável: lento, travando, e se eu boto uma MP3 pra tocar, por exemplo, e arrasto uma janela, o som engasga. Não dá nenhum erro visível, mas é impossível usar o sistema assim. Este foi o mesmo resultado que eu obtive quando tentei habilitar os P-States e C-States diretamente na DSDT, antes do Chameleon suportar isso. Alguém sabe qual o motivo disso? Eu suspeito que possa ter algo errado na minha DSDT, mas não tenho conhecimento pra olhar o código-fonte e entender. PS: aproveitando o embalo, se alguém souber o que eu preciso alterar na DSDT pra remover a necessidade do SleepEnabler, eu agradeço. Continuo precisando do kext pro sleep funcionar.
  5. Just a quick tip for anyone trying to use eSATA with hot-plug support: By putting JMicron36xeSATA.kext (attached) in /E/E I was able to use the purple SATA slots (JMicron SATA) in my hackintosh, and they both have hot-plug support. I couldn't use hot-plug with the orange slots (Intel SATA). Don't forget to enable the on-board SATA controller (and set it to AHCI) in your BIOS. Another tip: there's a new FakeSMC release (http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=1643, look for Release 10.6). I replaced mine with this newer one in /E/E and used some of its plugins (depends on your hardware), now I have access to all my system sensors in iStat Menus (CPU, System and GPU temperature, fan speeds, CPU voltage). Cheers! JMicron36xeSATA.kext.zip
  6. Did anyone try to use eSATA? I'm using only the orange SATA ports in my mobo, and one of the SATA ports is using that external connector that comes with the mobo. I recently bought a docking station that uses that eSATA port, but it only works if I plug the HD and turn it on before booting OSX. My OSX is detecting the disk as external, I can eject it, but I can't hot-swap to another HD (it shows the previous one as still connected) and if I only turn the docking station on while OSX is running it doesn't detect my HD. Is there anything I can do to enable eSATA and hot-swap?
  7. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Estou mandando o DSDT original da minha mobo (sem nenhuma modificação) e o patcheado que eu estou usando atualmente. Se eu não me engano (já faz algum tempo e eu posso estar me confundindo) meu DSDT atual é baseado nesse aqui: http://www.kexts.com/view/268-ga-p35-ds3.html. DSDT.1.original.dsl.txt DSDT.6.shutdown_fix.dsl.txt
  8. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Thanks MaLd0n! My DSDT is kinda different from the original GA-P35-DS3 (I'm using a patched one I found a while ago). Since it's working well since May and I'm not using some patches from yours (for example, I had a few problems when trying to patch my DSDT to use the Realtek network interface: it didn't work right when using VMWare's bridged network and Rivet to share media with my XBOX 360 so I'm using a kext for that) I just patched my DSDT with the shutdown fix found on the patch list and now everything is working fine. Ah, e só agora percebi que você é brasileiro. Valeu!
  9. Hi again! Thanks to MaLd0n, I'm now running Chameleon RC5 r619 with SpeedStep enabled. I temporarily installed VoodooMonitor.kext and ran VoodooMonitor, it detected 3 P-States and was switching between them. So I guess now SpeedStep is working correctly here!
  10. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Is there any way I can see what each individual patch does? My GA-P35-DS3 DSDT already has a lot of patches, but there are a couple there I'd like to apply by myself.
  11. Thanks! I'll dig into those topics and try to complile chameleon here.
  12. Hello guys! I installed SL on my GA-P35-DS3 following blackosx's guide, and it's been running smoothly for quite a while now (several months). I only have one issue: it doesn't power off (OSX shuts down, I get a black screen but the machine keeps running). I know it's related to the DSDT (sleep and restart work) but I didn't want to mess with mine (without knowing what I was doing) because of such a small detail. I even heard that there's a kext that could fix that, but I haven't found it yet (any tips?) Anyway, I was catching up on this topic and read about Chameleon RC5 and its ability to automatically set P/C states for speedstep. I tried to manually set these in the DSDT a while later with no luck, so after some tries I gave up. Question is: what are the benefits of doing that? Should I risk my stable system because of this, or is it only some kind of cosmetic feature? Will my computer consume less power, maybe? Oh, and where can I find the binaries for the latest Chameleon? I found the source and a packaged installer, but not the binaries in case I want to install it manually (like the guide). Thanks!
  13. Hello blackosx! First of all, thank you for the great guide. I installed Snow Leopard yesterday by following it and now I'm on 10.6.3 and my hackintosh is working great, better than I expected. I have a slight different motherboard than you (GA-P35-DS3 - ICH9R and ALC889a) so I had to make a couple of changes. I didn't use your DSDT (I used this one with a lot of fixes for my mobo) and then I modified it for audio (HDEF/LegacyHDA) and AppleLPC (using a device-id). Everything is working fine, except for shutdown. Sleep and Restart are working (using NullCPUPowerManagement and SleepEnabler, because I'm still having some problems when trying to enable SpeedStep in my DSDT which I'll try to solve later). I saw in the "What's New" part of the guide that you modified your DSDT to fix the Shutdown issue. Since I'm not using your DSDT, that's probably the reason Shutdown isn't working here yet. So I was wondering if you could tell me what exactly did you change in your DSDT to fix Shutdown, then maybe I can do the same here to see if it would fix mine. Thanks again for all the effort you put in this guide!
  14. Hey guys! My OSX install is working very well. Since I installed it using this method, I had no problems at all. Now I'm planning to dual boot OSX with Windows. I used to have Windows and OSX together when my OSX was iAtkos, but I don't know what steps I have to follow now so I won't mess with my perfectly working OSX install. Can anyone point me to a guide (or a couple of hints) on how to dual boot with Windows without touching my OSX installation (that is using this Boot-132 method)? Thanks!
  15. Hello all! Just coming back to inform that after replacing my IDE DVD with a SATA DVD and my PS2 keyboard with an USB one, the installation went smoothly, exactly like the guide describes. About the 10.5.7 Update After checking that everything was working correctly (I used a 10.5.6 Leopard DVD) I updated to 10.5.7 and it also worked perfectly. I got a little scared on the first boot after the update because my computer simply restarted while booting, but the next boot worked. I just had to reinstall the drivers from the GA-P35 tools. The video (I have a nVidia 8600 GT) was already working with QE/CI (no need to run NVKush again) and I also didn't have to install any fix after the update. Sleep, reboot and shutdown are all working. My previous XBench score (with iAtkos) was 149.19, and now it's 151.39. The disk benchmark was 49.60 before (SATA disk working as IDE) and now it's 55.16 (SATA as AHCI). Thanks a lot Captain Nemo for a perfect guide!
