    EP45-UD3P Retail Method

    It seems that the lifehacker guide is using a different kext for sound support. The DSDT method is more futureproof because the kext might not work when apple does major software updates. (Not to mention that the lifehacker kext is probably not 64 bit compatible.) I am going to work on making my dsdt along with unixman84's files into a .pkg that can be installed through the installer. Once I have had a chance to test it I will post it here.

    EP45-UD3P Retail Method

    Here is my DSDT.aml for a GA-EP45-UD3P board. This DSDT is based on the one posted by unixman84 however it has been patched to fix sound. You will need the legacyHDA.kext as well. I am also using the ifconfig fix with a login hook to fix bonjour. CrashalertDSDT.zip

    EP45-UD3P Retail Method

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this guide. My Snow Leopard installation is finally working after spending days trying to get snow leopard to run on my EP-45-UD3P without kernel panicking every two seconds. I managed to get sound working by editing the dsdt.dsl and then compiling it based on the DSDT guide that has been floating around. (I also had to add LegacyHDA.kext to E/E) In order to fix the sata drive icons I also added the IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext. If anyone would like my new DSDT file PM me and I will be happy to send it along. Specs: Motherboard: Gigabyte EP-45-UD3P CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 2.6GHz Ram: 8Gb 800MHz DDR2 Video: Nvidia Geforce 8800GT 512Mb
  4. Machinist - I have been struggling with my EP-45-us3p for days. I can get SL installed and it seems to work but I get random kernel panics. I have tried countless methods for the DSDT but nothing seems to do the trick. What are your bios settings (did you disable anything special?). Also could you please post your working DSDT file. I would really appreciate it since yours seems to work.
  5. I have been at this for hours and I can't seem to get SL to stay up without Kernel Panicking. I have followed all of the dsdt instructions and tried several variations of DSDT (cleanly compiled, cleanly compiled + audio and lan and CMOS reset fix, cleanly compiled + CMOS reset fix) and I seem to continue to get a kernel Panic. I am using a GA-EP45-UD3P revision 1.1 with Bios F9. I have an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 (2.6GHz) with 8 gigs of DDR2 Ram running at 800MHz. My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 8800GT (512Mb) I have set my bios to match the settings in the first post of this guide and that didn't seem to help. I have been booting with the -v -x32 flags as well. As an FYI I installed Snow Leopard to a separate drive from my working 10.5.8 install. Below you will find an abreviated text of the KP that I am getting. Please note that the system boots up, auto logs in and then I have about 20 to 30 seconds before I get the KP. Sometimes the CPU is 2. panic (cpu 0 caller 0x2a6ac2): Kernel trap at 0x0027a435, type 14=page fault, registers: CR2: 0x80010033, CR2:0x3e447000, CR4:0x0000006e0 :::more of this sort of thing::::: Debugger called: <panic?
