    VoodooHDA - common problems

    I upgraded to Mountain Lion DP4 from Lion, which was working fine with my audio. I have a P5N-E SLI motherboard which uses ALC883 chipset, as well as a graphics card with HDMI onboard, I modified my Info.plist to remove the HDMI audio, and the audio is now visible, all of the interfaces are there, I can change the volume, etc. But there is no sound, either in the line-out or the headphone ports. Here's my getdump: http://pastebin.com/59k75prs, and my getdumpext: http://pastebin.com/5XsCB9K9. Oh, I'm using VoodooHDA 2.7.4 from here - 2746-VoodooHDA-v2, but I get the same result with VoodooHDA 2.7.3.

    P5N-E SLI Boot-132

    For the record, I wouldn't use CDs for boot-132, use a USB stick. Just get a low-capacity drive (128MB would do), format it HFS+ and follow the standard installation procedure for Chameleon, and create an Extra folder with your extensions, DSDT, org.chameleon.Boot.plist, etc. This way you have a read/write test platform and you won't be aggravated by constantly burning disks and eventually running out and giving up. Further, if you can get hold of an 8GB USB stick you can clone the Lion or Snow Leopard installer to it and then to the aforementioned and avoid the use of optical media entirely.

    Intel HD 3000 problem on 10.6.8

    I am running Lion, so this might not work, but I fixed mine by installing Chameleon 2.1 (attached) that I built from SVN and using GraphicsEnabler=Yes, and I now have full resolution w/ QE/CI. i386.zip
  4. I am looking for a fully 64-bit voodooPS2Controller with voodooPS2Mouse, voodooPS2Keyboard and voodooPS2Trackpad plugins. So far I've managed to find a 64-bit voodooPS2Trackpad only.

    Intel HD Graphics 3000 resolution options

    Turns out that my GraphicsEnabler setting was wrong and if GraphicsEnabler is Yes whilst the DSDT patch is there then OS X will stay on a blue screen, but if the DSDT patch is not used and GraphicsEnabler is Yes then OS X will boot fine. That's using Chameleon version 2.1SVN and 32-bit kernel. (64-bit kernel has so far given blue screen on either option.) Note: Using the DSDT patch the GPU is recognised as "Intel HD 3000 Graphics" in System Profiler, whereas GraphicsEnabler registers it as "Unknown."

    [SOLVED] LION: nullcpu remove is possible?

    I have Lion on a P5N-E with a Q6600 that has a patched HDEF that enables it to boot without NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, however I have tried the same modification on a Sandy Bridge DSDT and the laptop KP'd just the same with "Kernel trap at 0x76af6378". So I'm with you, a DSDT fix for Sandy Bridge would be very welcome, until then I'll have to stick with NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

    Asus X53E

    I decided to try and get OS X Lion running on an Asus X53E Laptop and, as the Laptop is fairly recent I noticed that there was no help on the topic, so I thought I'd document my progress here. Specifications: Chipset: Sandy Bridge CPU: Intel i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz GPU: Intel HD 3000 (Screen: 15" 1366x768 + HDMI + VGA) RAM: 6GB DDR3 1333MHz HDD: WDC WD6400BPVT-80HXZT1 600 GB ODD: MAT{censored}A DVD-RAM UJ8A0ASW Ethernet: Atheros AR8151 WiFi: Realtek RTL8188CE Touchpad: Synaptics Audio: Realtek ALC269 Method: BaseSystem.dmg (In InstallESD.dmg) -> 8GB USB Stick Remove Packages symlink from the USB Stick, copy Packages folder into symlink location. Copy mach_kernel and boot.efi from InstallESD.dmg to USB stick. Install Chameleon (included) to USB stick. (Note: latest Chameleon build is required.) Replace OSInstall files on the USB stick for MBR install. (Google it.) I have used the following kexts in order to get a working install: In /Extra/Extensions: AtherosL1cEthernet.kext FakeSMC.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext (DSDT fix was unsuccessful.) In /System/Library/Extensions: AppleACPIPlatform.kext (For Battery) VoodooBattery.kext (For Battery) VoodooHDA.kext (Modified for ALC269 Audio) VoodooPS2Controller.kext (Only works in /S/L/E, if loaded in /E/E the trackpad is not recognised.) DSDT fixes: Fixed restart on lid close. Fixed HD 3000. (Still requires latest Chameleon. w/ GraphicsEnabler.) Working: Graphics - QE/CI & Native Resolution. (Sometimes get lines across Applications.) Audio Ethernet Keyboard/Mouse (With Horizontal & Vertical scrolling.) USB Battery Webcam (Upside down, can be corrected w/ iGlasses.) Restart Not Working WiFi (No driver anywhere.) Sleep (Black screen, sleepEnabler causes panic.) Shutdown (Fails to power off after CPU_HALT) Attached is a package with all Kexts, DSDT, Chameleon, boot.plist, smbios.plist and a full System Hardware report dumped from Everest. X53E.zip

    Intel HD Graphics 3000 resolution options

    After some use I have noticed quite serious lines across the display, not dead pixels, but lines of pixels of the same colour, sometimes green sometimes grey. I have observed this behaviour in the wallpaper image and whilst watching a video. Also on a Finder Toolbar icon. I'm looking into a fix, but I've found nothing useful yet.

    Intel HD Graphics 3000 resolution options

    Fixed by patching my DSDT and using a modified AppleIntelSNBGraphics.kext 100% working, QE/CI and native resolution. I've uploaded the DSDT & the kext for others that want to make this model work. HD3000_X53E.zip
  10. I have installed Lion from retail on an Asus X53E. It has an i5-2410M CPU which includes Intel® HD Graphics 3000. I have compiled the latest Chameleon from SVN and set GraphicsEnabler to true using org.chameleon.Boot.plist, which gives me QE/CI, however, the resolution is stuck at 1024x768. I've tried setting the Graphics Mode in boot.plist, which has no effect.

    P5N-E SLI Boot-132

    OpenHaltRestart.kext should fix that, make sure it's in /E/E

    P5N-E SLI Boot-132

    Working Ethernet Kext Tested in 10.6.6 with arch=i386; the Kext is 64-bit compatible though, so it should boot in 64-bit kernel mode. Compiled from nForceLAN_0.64.6.zip found at http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=125569 nForceLAN.kext.zip

    BCM4320 on 10.6.5

    I found a better way of fixing this problem, apparently the kext doesn't load because it only supports up to 1GB of RAM, so adding "max_valid_dma_addr=1024" to your kernel arguments fixes the problem. Step-by-step: Open Finder and navigate to com.apple.Boot.plist Add max_valid_dma_addr=1024 to the kernel flags.

    P5N-E SLI Boot-132

    There is nothing related to SLI in IORegistryExplorer, which is what I used as there is are no pcitools by default in OS X and Homebrew doesn't have a recipe for it.

    P5N-E SLI Boot-132

    I have succeeded in installing getting Snow Leopard running on my P5N-E SLI motherboard with the following specs: Asus P5N-E SLI => ALC883 audio, nForceLAN for Gigabit LAN, USB supported natively Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz 8GB DDR2 800MHz IDE ODD SATA HDD (1x250GB,1x500GB) nVidia 7300SE GPU The Kexts included all support 64-bit mode, however, because my GPU is not supported by the 64-bit kernel I can't use it. If you have another GPU (e.g. Radeon 5770) then you should be good to go. The attached archive contains: DSDT (patched: CMOS bug, VMWare Fusion slowness) Boot.plist smbios.plist Extensions (sorted into /E/E and /S/L/E folders) Chameleon RC5 (compiled from trunk) Steps: Download the boot-132 disk, burn it to a CD Boot from the CD, eject it and insert the retail disk. Press F5 to refresh the list of devices and boot from the retail disk Install OS X, boot from it using the Boot-132 disk Install Chameleon from the archive Create /Extra Place DSDT,smbios and boot.plist in /Extra Place kexts in /E/E in /Extra/Extensions Place kexts in /S/L/E in /System/Library/Extensions Reboot I have been able to use the vanilla kernel and have had no problem updating from 10.6 to 10.6.6 using this configuration, obviously AppleHDA.kext and HDAEnabler.kext need to be re-installed after every update, which is annoying but they don't load from /E/E. If I missed anything if there are any improvements that you have please post them. P5N_E_SLI.zip P5N_E_SLI_Boot_132.cdr.zip
