  1. I'm trying to boot 10.8.5 on this board but Chameleon is hanging at "Processing XSDT". Any ideas? edit: got 10.9 to boot instead. Weird…
  2. EVGA 8800 GT: 227/231 Gigaflops (GL renderer/software renderer, 81920 bodies), 219/226 (65536), 189/212 (32768) Q9550 @ 3.0GHz: 54 to 53 Gigaflops (number of bodies doesn't seem to matter) This was on 10.7.3. Interesting that the software renderer with lower body counts is more than a little faster

  4. Thanks, didn't even think of using 10.6.6's AppleHDA reusing my old LegacyHDA too got 5.1 working. Also, unintentionally I left Lion running overnight and since then I haven't got the double fault panic with Chameleon, so maybe it's related to cache/metadata generation or something. At any rate having correct SMBIOS data instead of the half-assed stuff [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] gives is nice.
  5. What are you using for audio? I have a GA-EP45-UD3R (also has the ALC889 I believe) and LegacyHDA doesn't work for me.
  6. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    Boot with "Graphics Mode" = "1280x720x32" (that's the highest VESA resolution the ION will allow, but it's 16:9 nonetheless). I actually forgot to mention this in my other post - the "should have 2 cores" KP usually only seems to pop up when trying to boot installation media, not an actual installed system. I'm not sure why, but in order to run the 10.6 installer the DSDT needs to only have one CPU alias. I haven't really looked into it though so it's possible there's something I'm missing there.

    I just used your 32-bit patch routine from a rather old full-source release (I couldn't get your later diff patches to apply correctly) and modified it a bit to work on top of PC-EFI 10.5 (which at the time included some things that've since been implemented in Chameleon), since your full bootloader releases have a bunch of stuff that's essentially useless on the 1201N (like GMA 950 patching). Of course, I'm not saying that that's particularly bad, I just personally prefer simpler solutions to things whenever possible - I also included the USBLegacyOff patches but you seem to have come up with a better implementation of that anyway - and I think the only other thing I changed was adding in the device IDs for the ION chipset for proper detection. I could try and dig up the source if you'd like, but it probably wouldn't be too useful.

    Try flashing through EZ-Flash (I think it's alt-F2 when starting up, but I'm not sure). To do this you'll need to use a USB stick formatted as FAT16, and make sure the BIOS image is the only thing on the it (rename it 1201N.ROM). Once that's done flashing hit F2 to enter BIOS setup and reset it to defaults.

    Yes. You don't need to, it'll work with 5 GHz just fine. Since there's only one antenna though, you won't be able to use MIMO, meaning speeds will be slightly lower than expected.
  10. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    No clue, although the EC (embedded controller) firmware they're referring to is pretty similar to the SMC found on actual Macs in that it controls things like ACPI states, keyboard and mouse controllers, battery status, etc.
  11. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    A new BIOS (v0324) is available, although strangely it's not listed for download on the support site. You can grab it here.

    I'm not sure how you'd use the 10.6 version with 10.6.2, but at any rate I'm not using SleepEnabler at all.

    Check off "clicking" in the Trackpad preference pane. For what it's worth, it didn't work for me either. I'll try and take a look at the diff file he posted to backport the changes he made for USB booting - the SMBIOS thing he mentioned he added for the 1201N just seems to grab the system's UUID and inject it into Chameleon (a pretty nice feature but not entirely necessary).

    Photoshop CS 4 runs well, I don't use Flash so I don't know how well it would work. Xbench is not a reliable benchmark - obviously the GPU is working correctly if 1080p playback works (try http://www.apple.com/trailers).
  15. Asus 1201N Installation and support

    Re-install the preference pane - I've attached it to this post for you. Also, since some people were asking about how to configure it correctly, this is how I have mine set up: Synaptics_Trackpad.prefPane.zip
