  1. I seem to be having a problem with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] on my system. It just seems to hang at a black screen with a white cursor in the upper left of the screen; it doesn't seem to do anything beyond that. I used the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] setup and format tools for windows on a USB drive formatted as MBR. Has anyone gotten [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to work on EVGA's X58 boards yet?
  2. I'm in the same boat as far as AppleTYMCEDriver.kext on my EVGA X58 board.
  3. Attached my full SSDT, along with a text file containing just it's _PSS, _PSD, _PCT, and _CST methods.. Dumped from ubuntu. Speedstep enabled, and CxE function set to C1E. Geenz_SSDT.zip
  4. Would it help at all if some of us i7 users started posting our SSDTs extracted from linux and the like?
  5. I don't see how you would enable more than one CxE function. Edit: To clarify, I have SpeedStep enabled in my BIOS, and am currently using C1E for my system's CxE function.
  6. Still causing my system to reboot with GeneratePStates enabled. However, I did notice one thing while booting recently. The bootloader says that it failed to read *something* the moment I begin booting. Unfortunately, it goes by too fast for me to completely read it or take a picture of it. Just to be safe, I checked my DSDT to make sure I wasn't putting my CPU's _CST or _PSS stuff in it.
  7. Just tested the latest version from mozodojo's branch. My system still reboots the moment chameleon attempts to generate my CPU's P-States. C-State generation still works fine as far as I can tell. Is there any way to get chameleon to dump anymore information on this to a log or something? I can imagine that just saying that my system just reboots when it generates P-States isn't particularly helpful.
  8. Just tried to use this on my system. The system reboots when it attempts to generate C-States P-States for my CPU. My CPU is an intel Core i7 920. My motherboard is the EVGA X58 SLI. Correction: Seems like it's doing it when it's generating P-States, not C-States..

    EVGA x58 Installation Guide

    JMicron support works provided you set the controllers to AHCI mode in your BIOS.

    Vanilla Speedstep on EVGA X58 SLI

    DSDT updates may be needed to get SpeedStep 100% working on EVGA's X58 boards. This method at least will allow people to enable speedstep and change their C-State without worrying about the system becoming unresponsive.

    EVGA x58 Installation Guide

    I've found out how to enable SpeedStep for those of you want or need it. See this thread for details: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=200950
  12. EVGA recently released a BIOS update (Revision SZ2Z) that enables HPET support in the system's BIOS. What does this mean? It's quite simple, it means that people with EVGA's X58 motherboards can now have vanilla speedstep. WARNING: This guide involves flashing your system's BIOS with a newer revision. ALWAYS Follow the onscreen instructions during the process. DO NOT remove the floppy or CD-ROM until it says it is safe to do so. First, visit this thread to grab the update, and for flashing instructions. After you've completed the process, follow these steps to enable speedstep: First, your BIOS settings will be wiped out during the update. The first things you will want to do is: 1. Go to the Integrated Peripherals menu 1a. Go to Onboard PATA/SATA Devices 1b. Set the SATA Mode to AHCI 1c. (optional) Set the JMB363 mode to AHCI + IDE (this will allow OS X to natively detect one of the two JMicron controllers) 2. Go back to the main menu, and go into Power Management Setup 2a. Enable HPET support 2b. Set HPET Mode to 64-bit 3. Go back to the main menu once again, and this time go into Frequency/Voltage Control 3a. Go into CPU Feature 3b. Enable Intel Speedstep 3c. Set the CxE Function to C1E After doing this, save your changes and reboot to OS X. Go into your Extras/Extensions folder and remove Disabler.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext (and any equivalents), and reboot using verbose mode (optional, but always useful for watching for any issues). After the system has rebooted, you should now be using Apple's native SpeedStep drivers with no issues!
  13. Hey slashack, I'm getting a SAM Multimedia read/write error when I use your nForce ATA kext. It seems to boot, but afterwards I'm left looking at black screen with the cursor in the upper left hand corner of the screen. I'm using an nForce 500 SLI chipset.
