  1. This issue is interesting, I reckon the sleep/wake is not 100% reliable. I have on several occasions found that I could not wake my hack from a normal auto sleep cycle (similar to reported above), in fact I haven't managed to have an uptime greater than 6 days so far. What's your best uptime so far guys? Here's another interesting finding, perhaps someone on this board could confirm this: Let or make your machine sleep, then wake it from LAN (use a Wake on LAN application from another machine). It will wake up fine. However the next time it sleeps you will not be able to wake your hack again... I wonder if this is related. Any thoughts?
  2. @Janis_A I have the EP45T-UD3LR and I use the generic DSDT offered by blackosx, even though it isn't the same board. It appears to be compatible, except for AppleLPC not loading. This can be fixed by adding the following: Device (LPCB) { Name (_ADR, 0x001F0000) [color="red"] Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x02) { "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x18, 0x3A, 0x00, 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } [/color] OperationRegion (LPC0, PCI_Config, 0xA4, 0x02) I am not sure this will fix your kernel panic issues, but hope it helps anyone else with a similar board. I will state again that the EP45T-UD3LR 'appears' to be compatible with blackosx's DSDT, but I have no definite proof of this, except for a my hack which appears to be running fine. Cheers.
  3. DSDT fixes for Gigabyte boards

    Hi, I've been following this thread for some time (you guys are geniuses!) and I am using mm67's DSDT on a EP45T-UDR3LR with Q9550 - it works out of the box for me (just had to modify LPCB device ID so AppleLPC.kext loads). The reboot problems you are experiencing are interesting, and here is something that may be related to it. I have noticed that if I wake up my hack with Wake Up on Lan from another PC (magic IP packets), it resumes from sleep fine, however the next time the system sleeps, it will not wake again, and I have to press the power button causing a full boot, any ideas? This also occasionally happens when I resume from normal sleep/wake cycles from the mouse/keyboard. I have "start up automatically after a power failure" ticked in Energy preferences. Cheers.
  4. Hi, I found a solution to wakeup from USB keyboard or mouse press. It's just a case of patching your DSDT to rectify the USB devices power states: Device (USB0) { Name (_ADR, 0x001D0000) Method (_S3D, 0, NotSerialized) { If (LEqual (OSFL, 0x02)) { Return (0x02) } Return (0x03) } Name (_PRW, Package (0x02) { 0x03, [b][color="#FF0000"]0x03 <----- Ensure this says0x03 [/color][/b] }) } I am not sure this will work on all boards, but it has done the trick for me. Simply edit all your USB entries with the above code. This doesn't however fix wakeup with bluetooth devices :-( I am not sure how to do this, it seems my bluetooth dongle completely switches off during sleep, maybe someone else knows. Hope this helps someone if it hasn't already been posted.
  5. Hi, Just reporting on the EHCI SATA fix via DSDT for the EP45T-UD3LR. Although the SATA controllers are reported as ESB2 AHCI and all is well without IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext, I have dicovered that hotpluging a SATA drive no longer works now - this is important for me as I use several external SATAs as backups. I have reverted back to IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext now and my controller are reported as ICH10 again. I am not sure the DSDT fix is worth it on this one, but please correct me if I am wrong. Also thanks for the tip for wake up by keyboard and mouse via AppleLPC.kext patch, I will investigate this one and report back, as I can't see the "Restart automatically after power failure" in system preferences. Thx.
  6. Hi, Thank you blackosx and contributors, great guide. If it helps someone, this install method works great on the EP45T-UD3LR, DSDT with EHCI and UHCI patches applied, 8Gb, 9400GT, Q9550, 500G main os, 1TB software Raid1 for /Users. Everything works, aside from wake up by keyboard key press or mouse event (I am stumped on this one) and I have to press the power button to wake up from sleep, minor inconvenience. You guys are geniuses - really.
  7. Thanks for putting together all this information guys. I am just about to start building a hackintosh with the EP-45T-DS3LR, would the suggested installation methods work on a Raid0 setup, or will this only work with AHCI as far as you know? Regards, Will.
  8. Hi, I have the following hardware, which I would like to turn into a dedicated hackintosh: EP45T-UD3LR Q9550, 8G DDR3, 9400GT Two 1Tb SATA, setup in Raid0 Would anyone be able to give me a few pointers on doing a retail install via bootloader with Raid0 please. I saw there are a number of existing posts on this topic, but nothing definitive on Raid0. Thank you.
