    ACPI (DSDT) Patcher for BIOS and AML

    DSDT patching haven't any sense on AMD config. You need patched kernel... Maybe yes or meybe not If you write something more about your HP and attach your Bios, then maybe someone will able to help...

    ACPI (DSDT) Patcher for BIOS and AML

    Why you need it? It is Award Bios and only fix you need is RTC Length. But it can be done easily by using dsdt.aml. There aren't aliases, HPET is correct... so there is no sense to patch this bios
  3. Looks like you've missed patch LPCB section: Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x02) { "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x15, 0x28, 0x00, 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } Put this just after: Device (LPCB) { Name (_ADR, 0x001F0000) There is DeviceID 2815 = ICH8M. It is closest to your ICH8, supported by AppleLPC.kext Of course You can't have any Disabler Also use IORegistryExplorer and check if you have 3 positions that are marked red on the attached picture.

    ACPI (DSDT) Patcher for BIOS and AML

    Stee, there were some "standard" Gigabyte DSDT's errors (Link). So iasl coudn't copile it correctly: Warning 1080 - ^ Reserved method must return a value (_WAK) fixed by adding do Mtehod _WAK: Return (Package (0x02) { Zero, Zero }) Error 4050 - ^ Method local variable is not initialized (Local0) Error 4050 - ^ Method local variable is not initialized (Local0) fixed by changinging Local0 to Zero (first data in parents) in two places of Scope _SI: Method (_MSG, 1, NotSerialized) { Store (Zero, Local0) } Method (_SST, 1, NotSerialized) { Store (Zero, Local0) } In attached zip you will find couple od Bios/DSDT files. 1. no errors -> with corrected genuine Gigabyte bugs and no other modifications 2. RTC fix -> without errors & with fix for Snow Leopard CMOS reset issue (there is no need to patch HPET, or remove Aliases in your Bios) In my opinion the best way is to use even orginal Gigabyte Bios, or minimaly fixed version (no errors), and put all modifications in dsdt.aml in /Extra. But in that case you shold make ACPI dump from working OS (via Ubuntu for eg.) and modify DSDT table form there. Then you'll be able to correctly put there much more useful patches.

    OK, finnialy found out what is going on In this Bios there is realy no ACPI table in 1B module. So I cheked other modules, ale found it i module 10 named "ACPI AML". So then MMTool -> WinHex -> MMTool... and all is done. I thing it could be implemented in next release od Patcher

    ACPI (DSDT) Patcher for BIOS and AML

    First, I'd like to thank koala for a really great work! I used Patcher sucsessfully with a couple Asus bioses. But had troubles with MSI bios (AMI): 1. MSI P965 Neo2 -> patching done succesfully but there was incorrect Bootblock Checksum Error. I've managed to replece only 1B module (from patched to orginal .rom) with MMTool, and it works. Link to BIOS Patched version (only aliases) is in attachement if anybody needs. 2. MSI P31TM-P35 -> "No DSDT module found in ACPI table." I haven't found any solution for this Link to BIOS Unfortunately patched dsdt.aml does not help in this case... So any help would be nice a7235ims.380._rzooff_mod.0.2_.zip
