    DV6-6090xx Mac OS X Lion Install Disc

    I am trying to download OP's archive but it's too slow and I don't have a megaupload account. What I just need is a couple of kext, the voodoobattery and the the patched applehda. I think that instead of downloading the whole 3,5GB archive, a much smaller zip with only the modified kext and files is better. Could someone please make this? Thanks.

    [Ayuda] DV6-6090es 6770M DSDT

    I have a 6490m on a dv6-6102sl I suppose I can use your DSDT patch except for 2 parameters: where did you get the "ATY,Card#" and "ATY,Rom#"? If I can get those values for my VGA I can patch the DSDT. Thanks.
  3. I thought it was simpler, just moving the DSDT loading function in the code before the OS loading, but I don't consider that the ACPI patching must be adapted to the destination OS. If I thought that before, I didn't even make such request. Excuse me and thanks for your time.
  4. Thanks. There is already a way to make Chameleon always load DSDT.aml regardless of the OS? I'm not able to modify source code to make this possible; could Chameleon developers integrate this "feature" and hide it, leaving it undocumented for the normal users? It's safer than flashing the DSDT into bios, I almost killed my mobo doing this
  5. I don't know if already explained somewhere, I searched but didn't find anything. In a dual boot system with windows (or linux), Chameleon will pass the customized DSDT.aml to the other OS or it just bypass this and makes the other OS to use the bios DSDT? And there is a way to enable/disable this feature? Thanks.
  6. just to say that I got Lion working with the 8500GT using EFI string in org.chameleon.Boot.plist. I also get everything working in my signature configuration, except LAN (I'm using a PCI wifi card that works with a very little kext editing). To make EFI String I used this method: http://forum.netkas.org/index.php?topic=222.0 at some point, you have to choose between one of those output: DVI-I / DVI-I - BAAAAAAAAwAMAAAAAAAABwAAAAA= VGA / DVI-I - BAAAAAAAAQAGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA= DVI-I / VGA - BAAAAAAAAwAEAAAAAAAABwAAAAA= I tried all but only one is working for me. The other two probably send output to VGA port like GraphicsEnabler=yes (I use DVI). So, if you use VGA output, GraphicsEnabler should work well. If you use DVI or GraphicsEnabler doesn't work, go with the EFI string. Watch out: if you use a wrong EFI string (for example when you choose one of the wrong output above), you will not see anything on the screen, even if Lion loads correctly. You must edit the org.chameleon.Boot.plist to insert the new EFI string but it's difficult without screen, so you can try connecting the pc to monitor with a VGA cable or better, using a boot cd or another OSX installation, like Snow Leopard (or even Windows or Linux with support for OSX filesystem).
  7. So it's a modification you did on the dsdt? What's the purpose of this mod? I didn't speak about HDMI, what are you talking about?
  8. Almost resolved I got a VGA cable and found that VGA output is working fine with GraphicsEnabler (DVI send the black screen signal). At the moment I've created an EFI string that is working fine with the DVI output in 10.6.8 (some weeks ago I did the same string but it didn't work, surely I did something wrong). There is an option in the bootloader (Chimera 1.5.4 at the moment) to switch the output to DVI? Anybody knows? Now I try to make audio working in 10.6.8 and then install Lion to report if the EFI string will work in 10.7.1 too.
  9. Thanks for your help. I don't have the Name (_CID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) string in my DSDT. Do you think I must change it to looks like yours? Is it present in your original unmodified DSDT or is a manual edit? EDIT: I'm checking right now on Snow Leopard those changes. Tequila fix is useless, because the pci root was recognized with stock DSDT. I changed smbios.list with one from a iMac9,1 but nothing happens. I don't know if I have to change the serial numbers inside the file I found on the internet, I suppose it's only an aesthetic file (or not?). Setting GraphicsEnabler=Yes I got a black screen, but the monitor is lit, the black screen comes from the graphic card. And the hard disk led is working even with the black screen, so OSX is not freezed, it's only the DVI output that doesn't work (but I don't have at the moment a VGA cable to test if the VGA port is working). At last, System Profiler gives me those infos about the video card (sorry for the italian words): Tipo: GPU Bus: PCIe Larghezza Lane PCIe: x16 VRAM (totale): 3 MB //before installing 10.6.8 update it said 32 MB Fornitore: NVIDIA (0x10de) ID dispositivo: 0x0421 ID revisione: 0x00a1 Watching those threads I'm losing my hopes... http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=224466 http://tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=118&t=22772 Last hope is DSDT edit with 8500GT specs. Where should I start?
  10. maybe that could do the trick... I checked that fix and my original DSDT looks ok. It has both _ADR and _UID, and _UID stays on the line under _ADR Device (PCI0) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) Name (_ADR, 0x00) Name (_UID, 0x01) Name (_BBN, 0x00) I used EFI string to make 8500GT working, as GraphicEnabler never worked for me. With 10.7.1 and 10.6.8 nothing works, I tried also changing pciroot on chameleon but nothing. If correct smbios will not work, I think this will be my last hope. I found the patch made for my hardware, g31m-s2l (maybe you make a typo writing g41 instead of g31?). Does those patches needs additonal corrections somewhere, like audio and ethernet? I see MaLd0n did them, so I think they should work well...
  11. I used the dsdt and smbios from this package: http://www.kexts.com/view/1667-extra_gigab...l_for_lion.html this is the smbios <key>SMbiosdate</key> <string>09/03/09</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>IM101.88Z.00CC.B00.0909031926</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-F2268CC8</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>iMac</string> <key>SMmanufacter</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>iMac10,1</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>W89412335PE</string> can you please link something more specific about the dsdt correction you're talking about? Thanks
  12. I have the same VGA card as your, and the same problem too. More than one year ago, I installed Snow Leopard on the configuration in my signature. I got everything working. Now I retried but after installation I updated to 10.6.8 and I cannot get 8500GT working anymore, just like Lion (I used 10.6.8 to install Lion on another partition, but their behaviour is the same). I think some driver updated in the last OSX versions isn't compatible with our VGA card. Because 8500GT is not so widespread, I think the faster solution is to change VGA card with a compatible one. Waiting for someone interested in finding a solution could take forever...
  13. I am in the same situation as hannah187. I extracted the InstallESD.dmg from Mac OS X Lion.dmg but if you try to directly burn or convert this file in Windows (and maybe linux), you got errors. So I looked inside the .dmg and I found another InstallESD.dmg: this one can be burned/converted without errors, but I don't know if it will work smoothly... I will test (hopefully before the week-end) and report results. EDIT: I burned a DVD this way, but I cannot find a bootcd like [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] for Lion. When a bootcd will be available, I will test. At the moment, the only way to test the DVD is on an original Mac. Do you know that the DVD will not boot by itself on a non-Mac machine? You have to use some pre-environment like [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] (still not available at the moment for Lion). This http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=259258 doesn't work for me, but maybe you'll be luckier.
  14. che c ma sono prezzi iva inclusa? che negozio è? ti faccio vedere comunque come l'avrei fatto io, usando il mio negozio di fiducia: Forse ora mi mangeranno, ma secondo me le schede madri asus sono più indicate per un hackintosh, dato che usano l'ACPI 2.0 e 3.0 invece dell'ACPI 1.x di gigabyte e asrock (e credo comporti anche un DSDT più facile da modificare).
  15. Speak to me? except the dsdt.aml file and the voodoohda.kext i think this is an almost standard procedure to install OSX. Then you have to find the dsdt/kexts for your specific hardware.
