    Z68X-UD3H-B3 Sleep NOT working

    Not working for me as well, have asked some help on the posting discussing AppleRTC patching here
  2. Hello, I have a Z68X-UD3H-B3+MSI 9850 Cyclone+16Gb RAM. I have a perfectly working Snow Leopard in one partition (sleeps working flawlessly except autosleep). I then had a try installing Lion on a separate partition, following tonymacx86 xMove method. Under Lion I was experiencing the expected CMOS reset and sleep not working (blank screen, fans and LEDs on) I then patch Lion AppleRTC like this sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x75\x30\x44\x89\xf8|\xeb\x30\x44\x89\xf8|; s|\x75\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|\xeb\x3d\x8b\x75\x08|' /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleRTC Now CMOS reset is gone. But sleep is not yet quite working. I can sleep the machine once. Upon awakening, I loose the USB keyboard (Apple Aluminum wired keyboard) no matter which USB port it is attached to. Also, the machine sleeps only once, the second time an further it just blank the screen with LEDs and fans on. Am I missing the addition of any Kexts? I am using a DSDT patched from my system under Snow Leopard with Mald0n's DSTDPatcher and I have the following kexts under /Extra/Extensions: ACPIMonitor.kext FakeSMC.kext IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext IntelCPUMonitor.kext NVClockX.kext RadeonMonitor.kext SuperIOFamily.kext Besides that, just the installation of Realtek drivers under /System. Any clues? No sleep is a dealbreaker to me.
  3. Hello all, I am probably facing a hardware issue, just need to check with you if it is the case. My board is showing a strange reboot problem. Everytime I reboot the machine, or power it on, the machine would try to boot, get stuck after the message "Memory runs at dual channel interleaved" and reboots itself, sometimes going as far as powering off (no fans, no PHASE LED) to power it back (alone!) and try it again. Eventually, the machine boots, loads Snow Leopard without a problem and works with no problem. I fear it may be the first signs of death for my MoBo. Anyone ever saw something similar? PS: blackosx: cheers and a big thank you for all your support given in this thread. I would say better support I ever saw in my 20+ years in computing . Have fun and luck with your new setup.
  4. Got this bluetooth dongle http://amzn.to/oAWNol. I thought I could simply hook it up, do a reboot and get ir reconized by may Hackintosh. I did not go like that. Do I need specific kexts, DSDT configs to enable bluetooth? I currently am running 10.6.7, following blackos install instructions. Tks!
  5. Hello, I need to install some additional HDs in my Hacktintosh. Any recomendation of PCIe PCI-X cards that work flawlessly with Snow Leopard? Motherboard is Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3H.
  6. Hello, I would like to have your recommendations on motherboard/cpu for building a low-power/silent (most important requirement) server that would run Snow Leopard, and possibly Lion as vanilla as possible. The server will be primarily serving files (8Tb currently) and directory services for 2 Macbook Pros and 1 Hackintosh, plus 2 XBMC Linux boxes (so I need to run AFP and NFS). Must be silent/very quiet, thus being low power is a requirement. I current run a Ubuntu server that is a very low-power and quiet machine, running fanless on the following pieces of hardware. Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2H/µATX AMD SEMPRON LE-1250 2.2GHZ Corsair 2GB-800 Twin2X1Gb PC6400 Noctua NH-U12P heatsin I suppose it is not easy to install OS X vanilla on such a hardware, therefore I am intending to buy new mobo/cpu and reuse the rest (HDs, case, etc). Ideally, but not mandatory, a LGA775 would be best in order to re-use the Noctua heatsink. Thanks for your suggestions!!!
  7. Blacosx, ops! my fault mate. I didn't want to sound lazy. In fact I did some searching before asking, did even notice the chosen board (VIA VT 6306/07) sometimes work, and sometimes don't, depending even on the PCI slot. I just did no see search results relatad to this post. My bad. Anyways, I ordered a VT 6307 and will report back on the outcome once I install it. Keep up the good work! Regards
  8. Hello guys, I am in need of firewire ports, which my GA-EP45-UD3L does not have. I was thinking in buying a Firewire PCI. Do you know if those things should work out-of-the-box on Snow Leopard, or should I be worried with drivers, etc. I am thinking in buying something like this (sorry, site in portuguese): PCI Firewire card
  9. Hi blackosx just would like to thank you for the excelent documentation on upgrading to 10.6.3. The idea of having a spare partition for a backup Mac OS X installation really pays back when we are doing these upgrades. Thanks a lot!
  10. stickman1000000 I have a perfectly working systems with a GA-EP45-UD3L. I followed Blackosx's guide to the letter, and eveything works like a charm (including sleep/wake, updates, etc). Make sure to have a NVIDIA card and no IDE devices. It makes it much easier. I have a ASUS EN8400GS (like this) and could not be happier.
  11. Hey BreakinBad, Indeed, that sucks. You should try to find someone going to the US (newegg.com has everything) or Europe to bring these things. Last december I had a friend coming from Seattle and he brought to me a US$10 USB soundcard that worked like a charm in my GA-E7AUM-DS2H Hackintosh. He just could not believe I could not find such a cheap thing over here. That is life :/ About BT/MM/Wireless Keyboard: I was reading the topic on MM yesterday. Seems that even with these BT dongles you may face issues in waking up the systems, particularly in having BT working properly after wake up. I am using an wired Apple aluminum keyboard and a Logitech wireless USB, working very well, but I will keep an eye on the MM. Cheers!
  12. EnzoFX, I am using the VGA port as my LCD monitor is a old one with VGA only.
  13. Thanks blackosx, I will followup the links about SpeedStepping. Have you ever seen or read about this video glitch I am facing (black screen when OS X loads, that goes away if I sleep/awake the machine)? Regards.
  14. Hey breakingbad, thanks for your help. My bad for not mentioning: I tried your commands for enabling Quartz, and unfortunately, it did not work for me :/ So I decided to try another guide. I re-installed following BlackOSX's guide for the EP45-DS3L (here). I simply got it working perfectly (expect for a minor Chameleon graphics mode glitch that I expect to solve). Network, Sound, Quartz, Sleeping/Waking (even waking via a wireless USB mouse movement). I really recommend the ones having problems to try BlackOSX's guide. The DS3L and UD3L are very similar boards, that is why I may have worked. At least, it worked perfectly for me. Cheers!
  15. Hey BlackOSX success with a GA-EP45-UD3L over here! I simply do not have words to thank you for your work on this topic and on the guides. Best howto I ever saw in InsanelyMac. Jaw-Dropping quality. How lucky am I to have (nearly) the same motherboard as you So, I managed to have a perfectly working system following your guide to the letter. By perfect working system I mean really all is OK over here: Shutdown, Restart, Suspend/Wake (even by moving a wireless USB mouse), Quartz, Sound, Network. I only am not sure about SpeedStepping (see question below). Here are my specs: - GA-EP45-UD3L - Core2Duo E8400 3.0Ghz - ASUS NVidia EN8400GS 512Mb - and to top it all, some nice Noctua silent coolers and fanless CPU Heatsink for a nicely silent Mac From the choices given in your guide I chose: - USB install - I used all your files, including DSDT.aml provided in the Support Files section of your guide. - 3 partitions on a single 1Tb GUID disk (Cham, Mac and MacBackup) - I applied both the Realtek Bonjour and Mouse lag fixes - Updated to 10.6.2 replacing the LegacyHDA and SleepEnabler kexts. All is working perfectly, except for a small glitch: when I boot up the system, Chameleon comes nicely and loads OS X. When OS X is loaded, I get a mouse cursor and a black screen. If I just put the system to sleep and awake, then I get the screen OK. Strange. Anybody seen this before? I have GraphicsEnabler=Yes in my com.apple.boot.plist. About SpeedStepping & Temperature: as I use a silent PC setup, temperature is a concern for me. How do I know if SpeedStepping is working properly (sorry for newbieness, but I never cared about SpeedSteeping in my previous Hackintosh builds). I heard about a VoodooMonitor app. How does that tell if SpeedStepping is working properly? I will probably tackle your DSDT Guide, but only if I really need it, as for the moment, all is working so well, that maybe I even do not need to mess with DSDT's. Again, huge thank you for this guide and the rest of your work. Cheers!
