  1. yes I would like to try this, but didn't you post one like that earlier in the thread? does this need to be in S/L/E? it seems to load fine from the clover 10.10 kext folder I am having the trouble that the kext seems to load fine and it shows up in system profiler but the USB3 port does not work at all, not even on usb2 speeds. when the kext loads during verbose boot i see the error that Bus 14 is already taken. Is this the problem? however the kext still loads and in system profiler it says it is on bus 0x0f so i guess it just moved to bus 15. could this be why it isn't working? can anyone tell me what I should try to change when the kext loads but still doesn't work? asus aspire 5750 on yosemite

    Supported Graphics cards with Full QE/QI

    Actually I have Asus GT520 1GB Silent working with Lion 10.7.2 and Chameleon 2.1 r1700 I didn't do anything special, the Chameleon injection and lion Nvidia drivers must be working. At boot it gets to "PCI Configuration Begin" and gives no more text output for about 45 seconds then goes straight to the login screen. Anyone know what that is about? It wasn't doing it with my old GFX card (8600GT) here's my Xbench results Results 161.61 System Info Xbench Version 1.3 System Version 10.7.2 (11C74) Physical RAM 4096 MB Model MacPro3,1 Drive Type SAMSUNG HD204UI SAMSUNG HD204UI Quartz Graphics Test 234.89 Line 238.41 15.87 Klines/sec [50% alpha] Rectangle 210.67 62.90 Krects/sec [50% alpha] Circle 286.21 23.33 Kcircles/sec [50% alpha] Bezier 129.01 3.25 Kbeziers/sec [50% alpha] Text 909.12 56.87 Kchars/sec OpenGL Graphics Test 123.18 Spinning Squares 123.18 156.26 frames/sec EDIT - weirdly I get almost the same performance both in Xbench and in Cinebench for the GT520 1Gb and the 8600GT 512Mb. The GT520 should way outperform the 8600, it has more processors, double the RAM and a faster clock speed, what gives?

    Help Needed, stuck on Lion install boot.

    this doesn't work for me. no change at all. It stops at the same Unable to open Bootcache etc etc is there an issue with installing PC EFI over the latest chameleon r1700? do i have to change permissions on the boot file? GIGABYTE GA-EG41MFT-US2H
  4. I created the boot disk as instructed. However I get KP on boot from it. I'm using a HDD not a USB drive as the boot disk. Chameleon V2.1 r1700 GIGABYTE GA-EG41MFT-US2H with Q8300 I have tried various combinations of kexts and Boot.plist settings but I don't know for sure which ones will work for my motherboard on lion, so I'm guessing. KP happens just after loading appleFScompressiontypeZlib although with some combinations of kexts and setting it happens just before or after that point. Can anyone suggest what I need to change? EDIT, I turned off built in firewire in the bios, and this problem above is solved, now I just have the dreaded Unable to open /var/db/Bootcache.playlist problem same as everyone else. Installing PC EFI plus replacing the boot file didn't work for me.

    Gigabyte GA-G31/G41-ES2L Joint Guide

    Can anyone tell me how closely related these boards are to the GA-EG41MFT-US2H I have this board and I have it working in SL, but there's no specific info out there. I bought it because it had onboard firewire and spdif. Presumably it is related to a similar board without those features, but I can't work out which one. I'm about to upgrade to Lion, so I'm looking for any extra info about what my mobo needs.

    Hi, where did you get the EFI string from for your 430? did it not work with Chameleon Graphics enabler? Also, Has anyone got any info on the GT520? I stupidly bought one without checking, but it is looking like it won't work.

    Quiz Center

    I've been around for a bit, so i can post, but I'd still like to run through the quizzes, but they come up as unavailable. what is that about?
  8. I just discovered that one of my PCI slots ins't recognised in osx. It's the top ordinary slot that isnt a little one or PCI extreme... anyone know how to get it working? the card in it shows up in OSX86Tools but the system profiler can't see it...
  9. I thought the same thing... but the older version doesn't load, so it's no use....
  10. I have AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement disabled also I have not tried with it enabled. it used to cause KP on boot i think... i don't know what the link is between AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement and HPET anyway.... this is all very trial and error, I hope someone who actually understands can enlighten us...
  11. thanks for posting aliab I'll try that! I had searched for AppleHPET and still not found that other thread...
  12. I'd like to know more about AppleHPET and what it does, and why the old version is not loaded. Also about its relationship with AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, i think most of us have overridden or removed AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement alreday anyway... certainly putting the old version on the EFI partition with a higher version number works, but it seems like maybe it works by preventing either version from loading, and so has the same effect as removing the one in S/L/E this method allows me to maintain a 100% vanilla system folder though, even though its hacked from outside.
  13. bigpoppa, does kextstat report v 1.1 as loaded for you? in terminal: kextstat -b com.apple.driver.AppleHPET
  14. I overrode AppleHPET.kext v 1.3 from 10.5.6 with v1.1 from my 10.5.5 kalyway install... by changing the version number of the 1.1 kext to 9.9 and putting it on my EFI partition sure enough internal firewire is fixed! many thanks for the tip! strangely i can't get kextstat to report either version as loaded... wierd... maybe that means its not loading?
  15. I wonder why some have no firewire, and some have slow usb... does anyone have both, or neither problem? if everyyone were to post which problem they have and which modified-nonvanilla kexts they are using that would be useful I imagine... I am running completely vanilla system with hacked kexts on EFI partion (munky system) my PCI card fw works but onboard does not. I have not noticed any usb problems. my modified kexts are: LegacyHDAController.kext HDAEnabler.kext LegacyHDAPlatformDriver.kext IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext SMBIOSResolver.kext IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext dsmos.kext to tell the truth i haven't even checked if my audio is working with above kexts. i use audio over fw anyway and could remove the audio kexts happily enough. anyone with working fw please post which kexts you are using that are not vanilla.
