  1. @Renhard45 The motherboard defaults to legacy USB without proper configuration. On my setup to achieve High-Speed USB 2.0 an edited DSDT is used. The DSDT linked in my previous post contains the USB edits. Mind DSDT's are very specific. I use a Q6600 CPU. Better apply the patches yourself on a fresh DSDT from your system. There are still some old DSDT databases on the net, where you can find a specific p5w dh deluxe patch. Cheers BTW: Do you have any issues with sleep on Yosemite? What do you use to achieve sleep?
  2. Hi I've been running Yosemite on this board for a while without any issues. Since last week I'm having issues with sleep. Meaning 1 out of 2 times my PC would not wake up anymore (halted cpu, spinning fans), an old problem that I haven't seen anymore since ML. I think this happened after installing xcode, can't tell for sure. I noticed that appleLPC.kext isn't loading. So my guess is that this could be the reason. I use a custom DSDT, I've spend a day trying to find a decent patch for LPC ICH7, but without any luck. If anyone could point me in the right direction to solving this, my eternal gratitude is yours. I use latest clover as boot loader. additional kexts: AHCI_3rdparty_sata appleACPIPlatform ApplePS2Controller ApplePS2Mouse ApplePS2Keyboard ApplePS2Trackpad Evoreboot fakeSMC genericUSBXHCI lspcidrv Patched_10.7_AppleRTC voodooHDA my specs P5W DH DELUXE Q6600 Corsair 8GB DDR2 6400 link with my dsdt https://www.dropbox.com/s/ruixtpej9ps8m7m/DSDT%202.aml?dl=0 greetings Chip UPDATE: I managed to get appleLPC to load with LPCinjector kext Got rid of all unnecessary kexts, never took the time, as it seems now that I only need fakesmc and voodoo for everything to work properly with my new custom DSDT Sleep though is still not as it should be, sometimes it works, sometime PC wakes by itself, but gets stuck in halted cpu state with spinning fans. I noticed that every 2 hours PC is woken by RTC alarm, but manages to get back to sleep after a few seconds. But on other occasions, (still haven't found exactly why and when) it gets stuck. Any pointers more then welcome.

  4. Has anyone got the Kext.P5W10.6.7.By.PIEROF81 package These were shared on megaupload, can't find anywhere. Another issue I'm having after installing comboupdate 10.6.8 my screen is cut in two halves, I fixed it with installing the proper ati drivers but whenever i boot in verbose mode it is still split in two, as with the circular loader which appears off center. Anyone any input on this? Cheers!
  5. Hi everybody! I wanted to share this one, I've been going bananas over it, and maybe save some of you of a serious headache. I have been running OSX for 4 years now on my P5W DH Deluxe and I've been (mostly) very happy with it. I still run 10.5.8 (Kalyway 10.5.2 + iDeneb upgrade) very easy and stable, I've upgraded to Snow and have come back from it because I experienced a decrease in speed. I'm thinking about upgrading to Lion because software vendors are pushing me to it, due to increasing compatibilty issues (actually this is mostly Apple's fault), anyhow I would be interested in your experiences especially towards speed with Lion compared to Leopard. Back to what I wanted to share, my system was running fine until last week I started to experience kernel panics when shutting down, not when restarting oddly. I always keep some disk images at hand for when stuff goes wrong so I restored my system and and was like it used to be. Until a few later I started to experience issues with sleep a bit later shut down as well. Anyhow after a lot hassle with new restores, rechecking all the bios settings, etc.. without any luck. I discovered that my usb dongle for the keyboard and mouse was the troublemaker. It sits the lower second USB port of the motherboard and is detected as a wake up port. So after changing this, shutdown works fine again, I'm still experiencing troubles with sleep however, so I'm not completely out of the water yet, any input on this one would be greatly appreciated. ** UPDATE: I had been experimenting with sleepenabler.kext, deleting this brought back sleep fully operational once again. So I hope I save some of you from future headaches. Cheers Chip
  6. Have the same problem... could someone tell if i need a specific kext for this using generic wireless keyboard any help greatly appreciated!
  7. x86 Xbench Results Thread

    Hi everybody! was wondering if someone can give me an explanation for this one.. here are my machine's specs: Q6600 CPU oc'd to 3,24 Ghz 4GB RAM Gigabyte HD 2600 Pro 512MB GPU WD 150GB Raptor HD1 WD 500GBAAKS HD2 P5W DH DLX MOBO OS is Kalyway 10.5.2 install I run 2 identical clones of OSX: one primary on the 150 Raptor disk (1 partition) and one backup on my 500 GB normal WD HD (multi partitioned drive with 2 linux ext3 partitions and 2 more mac hfs+ partitions), OSX is installed on the first partition of this drive. Here's what i don't understand, when running Xbench, my results are quite different . I was expecting my Raptor drive to get the best result but this wasn't the case, though the Raptor gets the best read write results, the difference seems to be in the video tests, but since the install is as a clone, I really don't know how to explain this?? I am really looking forward to get an explanation for this, like now it seems!!
