  1. Yes, the disabler I am using disables AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement removing cpu 3 and 4 from the dsdt worked. Now SL reports 1 cpu with 2 cores. I hope the second is a real core, not the hyperthreading fake core.
  2. I used the Disabler from Chameleon 2.0-RC3 At least it did not work to remove cpu 2 and 4 while leaving 1 and 3 intact. I could try to remove 3 and 4 and leave 1 and 2 intact....
  3. Ok, that did the trick - thanks! Installation took really long, but it worked. system profiler reports one cpu with one core. I dont know about better ways to check it like cat /proc/cpuinfo in linux. What works: - nvidia graphics with dvi out - sleep - usb 2.0 (sometimes) What does not: - second cpu core - hyperthreading - audio - ethernet (detected but no link) - usb 2.0 (sometimes) (i didnt try to fix anything yet - just glad that it works now - at least to some degree)
  4. then... it works! I got to the install screen - and even booting with usb 2.0 enabled seems to work. OFFTOPIC: I didnt know however that a GUID partition table is a requirement. so I cannot get further now (or is it possible to create a GUID partition table without loosing data? I have a 300G linux partition that I dont want to loose....
  5. I decompiled the dstl.aml, removed P002 P004 and the Alias and compiled again. The result is that I get no error but hang at "using 16384 buffer headers and 4096 cluster IO buffer headers" (I think the same behaviour as when providing no dsdt.aml at all). I might have to wait for PEGATRON or POV to provide a new BIOS { Processor (P001, 0x01, 0x00004010, 0x06) {} Processor (P002, 0x02, 0x00000000, 0x00) {} Alias (P002, CPU2) Processor (P003, 0x03, 0x00000000, 0x00) {} Processor (P004, 0x04, 0x00000000, 0x00) {} Alias (P004, CPU4) }
  6. The kernel trace looks similar to the photo in the link you provided - so yes it seems to be the same problem. What puzzles me ist that I am able to boot a stock 10.5.8 kernel with cpus=2 and my patched dsdt but found no way to boot the 10.6 kernel with a similar trick. My problem is that my BIOS has no option to disable hyperthreading - so I cannot test that :-(
  7. When I try to boot the prepared 10.6 installer (booting with latest chameleon, patched dsdt in place) on my POV-ION-330 board (same as PEGATRON), I get a kernel panic and "should have 2 cores, but only found 1". I had the same problem with 10.5, but it could be fixed with cpus=2. With 10.6 it seems to have no effect. any ideas EDIT: Kernel panic fixed by decompiling the dsdt.aml, removing P003, P004 and the CPU aliases and recompiling dsdt_pov330.zip EDIT2: fixed Ethernet connection problem by installing the driver from this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=125569 (remove nvenet.kext from /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ and put nForceLAN.kext there - could not get it running via /Extra/)
  8. Ich habe das gleiche Board. (Das mit dem POV branding). Danke für die Anleitung. Allerdings ist das File "Zusaätzliche Package 3,54 MB" nicht downloadbar. Bist du inzwischen mit USB weiter gekommen? Oder hast du dich mal an die Installation von 10.6 gewagt?
