  1. I am having the same problems as described above. When i wake from sleep using bt keyboard or mouse computer wakes, but bluetooth is unresponsive. It requires a reboot for bt to function properly. I get similar error codes from kernel as above. I have the same setup as in this guide using a converter and plugged into usb bus on motherboard. Any suggestions?? everything else works, but wake from sleep..
  2. I just finished setting up a new systems. The specs are below. - Gigabyte H55M-UD2H - Intel Core i5 760 - ASUS Geforece 9500GT - Raid0 hard drive setup - Snow Leopard 10.5.6 Whenever i try to install windows 7 through either Parallels or VMWare Fusion 3 i get kernel panics in the installation of installing the operating system. I have attached the kernel panic and if anyone can give me any insight to what it might mean that would be great. I have no problems with anything else hardware or software related, only problems when installing os through a virtualization software. The kernel panic attached happened when using Parallels. Cheers.

    If i am not mistaking the resolution for graphics is handled by your dsdt.aml file, maybe its broken. Which one are you using? Here are the kexts i am currently using though: VoodooHDA.kext PlatformUUID.kext fakesmc.kext OSXRestart.kext EvOreboot.kext IOATAFamily.kext Cheers..

    i have 10.6.2 working pretty good now, the only thing i don't have working which i would like is sleep in 32bit mode. I am using TeaTeam's kernel which has native power management, so i am NOT using nullcpupowermanagement.kext. Restart and shutdown work fine, but still having problems with sleep. When i put the computer to sleep, it will sleep fine, when i hit the keyboard to wake the computer it just restarts like a normal boot up. Is there anything else i need to add to get sleep working? Right now, i am NOT using sleepenabler.kext and nullcpupowermanagement.kext. I can list the kexts i am using if that makes things easier to figure out, but i am not on my hackintosh right now, so i can post this up later.

    I have 10.6.2 running pretty well on the D945GCLF2, but am still having a problem with sleep. I am running in 32 bit mode using native AppleIntelCpuPowermanagement.kext. In my bios settings i have S3 enabled. Now, i can put the computer to sleep no problems. The computer will wake from sleep only if i wake the computer with in 10 seconds of going to sleep. If i wake the computer with in 10seconds of putting the computer to sleep it wakes no problems. If i wait after the 10 sec to wake my computer, it will just restart my computer. I have tested this over and over and for some odd reason the computer won't wake from sleep if its been longer than 10 seconds. Anyone have any thoughts on this sleep problem? Also, i am using the dsdt.aml from the first post and is located in the root of my snow leopard drive and am using teateams kernel.

    Ok, seem to have a few outstanding problems with 10.6.2 which i hope someone can point me in the right direction. In a few posts back i mentioned i was getting kernel panics if i delete nullcpupowermanagement.kext. The kernel panic message i am receiving is: 'no HPET available, cpu configured incorrectly' Now in my bios i have set HPET to enable, which doesn't make a difference whether it's enabled or disabled because i still get the kernel panic. Now, when i first installed 10.6 i deleted appleHPET.kext because i was told it would help with sleep, but didn't make a difference and i never replaced it. Would that need to be installed again? Also, as Damien mentioned this could have to do with my DSDT.aml file. Now, i used the one damien posted in the first post, same kernel panic, i used one provided by teateam, same kernel panic. I made my own by getting the info from ioreg, still same problem, so to me it doesn't seem like a dsdt.aml problem, but who knows. Now i can boot fine if i have nullcpupowermanagement.kext, but without it i can't boot. UPDATE: I have managed to boot with out nullcpupowermanagement.kext and all i had to do is reinstall appleHPET.kext and repair my permissions and now i can boot with native AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Sleep still doesn't work, but i will try with the latest DSDT.aml to see if that makes a difference.

    Quick question. Is dsdt.aml case sensitive? I have read many posts saying its case sensitive in other threads and it should be DSDT.aml and not dsdt.aml. Can anyone confirm this?
  8. D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    Ok thanks, i am currently using your dsdt.aml from the first post which seems to get kernel panics without nullcpupowermanagement.kext. I will try to build my own to see if that makes a difference. you say everything works except restart. There is a new kext out called OSXRestart.kext which is not based off openhaltrestart.kext or evOreboot.kext. You should give it a try, a lot of ppl are saying it works great. Link is in teateams blog.

    How can you boot without NullCPUPowerManagement.kext? I am using teateams kernel too, but get kernel panics if i delete that kext.
  10. How to fix shutdown ?

    Thanks for the suggestion, but removing that kext didn't do anything for me. I think it has to do with nullcpupowermanagement.kext, not handling power management the way it should.
  11. D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    Hey DamienValentine, I agree we should get AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement working. I didn't realize you had so few kexts installed to get snow leopard working. You don't have an extra folder and only have IOATAFamily.kext and fakesmc.kext along with NullCPUPowerManagement.kext installed in S/L/E. I think i am going to try it your way and get ride of as many kexts as possible, this will help to troubleshoot. Thanks for the info. EDIT: Ok, so decided to clean up the kexts on my snow leopard install. I removed my extra folder. Now the only kexts i have are in S/L/E - IOATAFamily.kext - fakesmc.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - VoodooHDA.kext I also deleted AppleHDA.kext in S/L/E from before. Then i repaired my permissions and started up snow leopard with -f -v. It booted fine. Once i did the following, shutdown works, restart/sleep dont, just as like DamienValentine. Tried the shutdown and few times and worked. Then i decided to install OpenHaltRestart.kext into s/l/e. Once i did that my shutdown wasn't working. Then installed SleepEnabler.kext again nothing was working. So, i decided to remove both OpenHaltRestart.kext and SleepEnabler.kext, repaired my permissions and now my shutdown doesn't work anymore, just restarts the computer. Restart/sleep don't work either. So, now i don't have an extra folder and only have the 4 kexts listed above (no sleepenabler or openhaltrestart) and i have no shutdown/restart/sleep. So, now i am just trying to reproduce the problem, but so far no luck..
  12. D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    Just doing some more testing. Here are the kexts currently in my Extra/Extensions/ - AppleRTC.kext - fakesmc.kext - IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext - IOAHCIshow.kext - IOATAFamily.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - OpenHaltRestart.kext - PlatformUUID.kext - SleepEnabler.kext With these kexts only restart works for me, shutdown and sleep do not work. Since i have never used SleepEnabler in any of my leopard installs to get sleep working i decided to delete SleepEnabler.kext to see what happens, i left everything else as it. Once i removed SleepEnabler.kext i am now able to shutdown and restart successfully. Sleep still doesn't work. So, for now i am going to leave SleepEnabler.kext not installed so at least i can shutdown and restart fine.. Just a little update. Also, i am pretty sure i put IOATAFamily.kext in Extra/Extensions and in System/Library/Extensions. Now i don't want the same kext in both locations, but wasn't sure where i should keep this kext or if it even matters?? EDIT Ok, so looks like once i deleted and SleepEnabler.kext and repaired my permissions i was able to restart and shutdown my computer no problems. Well, looks like that was a 1 time deal and i spoke to soon. Now i am back to where i was where shutdown doesn't work, jsut restarts my computer. And i can't reproduce the scenario where i had shutdown working.. I also notice once you delete SleepEnabler.kext i can't boot up with -f command becuase i get kernel panic. Once i put the sleepenabler.kext back i can boot with -f.... Back to the drawing boards..
  13. How to fix shutdown ?

    Did you make any progress with this? I have OpenHaltRestart.kext and SleepEnabler.kext and only restart works for me. Just wondering if you were able to get it sorted out?
  14. D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    I am on my work machine right now, but when i get home i can list the kexts i put into Extra/Extensions. But, i know i used SleepEnabler.kext and OpenHaltRestart.kext. I made a point in installing these kexts as i though thats how snow leopard manages sleep. Restart works, but shutdown and sleep don't. On all my distros of Leopard, i have never installed SleepEnabler.kext and sleep has always worked. I beleive i had OpenHaltRestart.kext on my leopard machine though. I have also tried to set my hibernatemode. In Terminal i entered: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3 (this is what i had to do in leopard to get sleep working, but didn't work in snow leopard). I am also having slow performance on flash as well.
  15. D945GCLF2 Snow Leopard

    I'v managed to get snow leopard installed on my machine. I am using ugokinds dsdt.aml and put uuid as mentioned. I formated my snow leopard drive as mbr and used the modifed osinstall.mkpg available on the net. I put all my kext files in Extra/Extensions. for me this is whats happening - Full resolution with dsdt.aml with some artifacts - shutdown/restart/sleep - when i hit shutdown the computer just restarts, restart works as normal, for sleep it will hibernate my computer and when i wake it, it will just start as normal. - Audio and LAN work fine - Hyperthreading is not working, i get a kernel panic when its enabled. When i disable it works fine. -My hard drives are not mounting. Applications and usb key mount fine, but my leopard and snow leopard drive won't mount. Leopard drive is on sata hd and snow leopard is on ide hd. In order to access the info, i can either go into terminal or finder, but not showing up on desktop. Thanks everyone for their help and any suggestions are welcome... Blair EDIT: My drives are mounting now. Just wanted to update anyone in case they had the same problem. To view the volumes on my desktop i had to open finder and right clicked on one of my volumes and select "Open Sidebar Preferences". Under the general tab select 'Hard Disk' to show on desktop. For me this wasn't selected...
