  1. I have no ethernet (important) and my ram runs underspeed 800 vs 1066 (unimportant) with all the bios versions prior to FE (though I used to having fully working ethernet, ram at 800 and stably running windows7 64bit and osx 10.6.4 with everything on FB). I really don't want to rma my board if software will fix it. I have 7 drives, a raid5 for win, 2 dvds, and a host of other {censored} that I really don't want to disassemble (I'm one handed atm after an injury put my left hand in a splint for the next couple months.) I'll include a copy of my DSDT.aml if any kind wizard would care to work some magic for me
  2. It looks like they pulled the FE BIOS. Now there is a beta FF in it's place. I'm wondering if I should just wait for the FF BIOS to pass beta as I don't want to be on an unsupported bios version. Gigabyte Tech Support had me install FE, lol. Actually, as I have no idea when Gigabyte will finish FF, I'll extract and ask nicely Thanks!
  3. Has anybody gotten the Kakewalk USB method to work on an EP45-UD3P rev 1.6 running the FE version BIOS? I bought a Snow Leopard DVD (is 10.6.3) and successfully installed, but after applying the 10.6.4 Cumulative update I can only boot in safe mode. The KP I get on boot is: ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::PushCPU_cstmta_CST Evaluation failed com.apple.driver.AppleTyMCED(1.01d8) com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily(1.30) com.apple.iokit.IOCPIFamily(2.6) com.apple.driver.IOPlatformPluginFamily(4.1.2b1) I also get a "Can't find SMBIOS" even though there is an smbios file and in verbose mode even says it's reading the file (shows correct path and says it's reading the file). Rig is: EP45-UD3P rev. 1.6 BIOS FE (Built in LAN doesn't work at all in previous revs, under windows 7 too, also fixed mem timing problem) Intel QX6850 Core2 Extreme Quad @3.67GHz 4x500MB RAID5 Windows 1x500 Mac OS on ICH10 2TB eSATA backup drive (on jMicron Controller) Plextor DVD writer on ICH10 SATA LiteOn DVD on IDE BFG GTX285 -Works great at 2560x1600 WoW with full options and rez is so pretty This was set up originally with the lifehacker 1.0 method that gave me a fully working machine (on FB BIOS which now breaks my ram and my ethernet) that upgraded flawlessly through 10.6.4 without so much as upgrading chameleon past RC2 rev1. Worked beautifully until the adobe acrobat uninstaller/upgrade crashed and the system slowly degraded till it can't boot outside of safe mode. Just for kicks I tried the original lifehacker usb stick again, but it doesn't like BIOS FE either. KP right after POST. Any hints on getting this working would be much appreciated.
