  1. Snow Leopard Graphics Update 1.0

    My EVGA GTX 285 is still not fully functioning after this graphics update :< Starcraft 2 and Portal are slowwwwww compared to Snow Leopard 10.6.3. My Build is Core i7 920 + GA-EX58-UD5.
  2. I have an interesting finding about the graphics performance after 10.6.4 update. First of all, I have two systems: Core i7-920 on GA-EX58-UD5 configures as MacPro4,1 and Core i5-750 on GA-P55M-UD4 configured as iMac11,1. Furthermore, I have two graphic cards: GTX 285 and GTX 260. Therefore I have four combos of system+graphics. 1. MacPro4,1 + GTX 285: Graphics performance dropped significantly compared to 10.6.3. 2. MacPro4,1 + GTX 260: Graphics performance UNAFFECTED! 3. iMac11,1 + GTX 285: Graphics performance dropped significantly compared to 10.6.3. 4. iMac11,1 + GTX 260: Graphics performance dropped significantly compared to 10.6.3. Both systems have same kexts in /S/L/E (RealtekR1000SL.kext) and /Extra (fakesmc.kext, OrangeIconFix.kext, ALC889a.kext). Both systems also have similar DSDT fixes. Hope someone can find out what's going on.
  3. I can confirm that my GTX 285 is also significantly slower after 10.6.4 update.
  4. Apple Magic Mouse OSX86 - external bluetooth dongle

    Just here to confirm that my Targus ACB10US ver. 2 (short one) is working with both magic mouse and wireless keyboard. Had to add Product ID and Vendor ID manually and UNCHECK "Allow bluetooth device to wake this computer". However, the wireless keyboard can still wake the computer from sleep while the magic mouse cannot. Both devices are working perfectly after wake from sleep.
  5. An update for my problem with Parallels. After making changes to the SATA connection and 5+ reboot, I can confirm that my disk identifier for Windows 7 HDD no longer changes (it now stays at disk2), while Mac OSX HDD and TM HDD still have random disk identifier number (disk0 or disk1, seems to change every time I reboot). But anyway just by physically changing the SATA device order solved my problem with Parallels. For you information, this was my SATA device connection before the change: SATA0 - MAC OSX SATA1 - TM Backup SATA2 - Windows 7 SATA3 - Empty SATA4 - DVD SATA5 - Empty
  6. Thanks. I guess I'll have to live with that. Reseting the Parallels partition is not that much work anyway. Here is another problem. Can anyone spoof their mac address (of the built-in ethernet) by using "sudo ifconfig en0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" or "sudo ifconfig en0 lladdr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"? This feature is working on real macs as well as my Apple USB ethernet adapter. I wonder if this is caused by RealtekR1000SL.kext
  7. There is no Device (SATA) or Device (PRTx) sections in the DSDT of GA-EX58-UD5. However, comparing the DSDT of GA-EX58-UD5 with the DSDT of P5K Pro, as well as looking at ioreg of GA-EX58-UD5, I think there is something missing in the Device (PCI0) -> Device (IDE1) of our DSDT. There are only 2 devices under this section, namely Device (PRIM) and Device (SECD) (I believe PRIM corresponds to SATA0 but I don't know what SECD is). However, in ioreg, I can see the devices under similar section (PCI0 -> AppleACPIPCI -> IDE1 -> AppleAHCI) consist of PRIM, PRT2, PRT3, PRT4, SECD, where PRIM is my DVD drive and PRT2~PRT4 correspond to 3 harddisks. Therefore, is there something missing in our DSDT? My SATA device connection is as follows: SATA0 - DVD (PRIM) SATA1 - Empty SATA2 - MAC OSX (PRT2) SATA3 - Time Machine Backup (PRT3) SATA4 - Windows 7 (PRT4) SATA5 - Empty
  8. Thanks for you reply, eberts. However, I couldn't find PRTx (x = 0~5) in DSDT from GA-EX58-UD5. I simply swapped my devices based on your suggestion, but the disk identifier still appears random. Is there something missing in the DSDT that we should add to correct this problem?
  9. First of all, thank d00d for his awesome DSDT tutorial. I wonder if anyone has a solution to the problem where the disk identifier is changed randomly for every system restart. This is somewhat inconvenient for Parallels to load my Windows partition. I have 3 disks in my system, where the first is MAC OSX, the second is used as a time machine backup, and the third is Windows 7. Theoretically, the three disks and their corresponding disk identifier should be listed as: 1st: disk0, 2nd: disk1, 3rd: disk2. However, this order seems random each time upon reboot. For example, the order may be: 1st: disk2, 2nd: disk0, 3rd: disk1, or any other permutations. This is a bit troublesome since each time the order changes, I have to point the virtual machine to the correct partition for Parallels to load my Windows partition. Does anyone know a fix for this problem? Thanks!
  10. I did a diff before and after sleep using lspci. Nothing changes.
  11. I have IOBuiltin=True in IORegistryExplorer without #18 DSDT mod. I wonder why is that? The only difference is that I put the Bit Shoveler's v2.0.0d1 RealtekR1000SL.kext in /S/L/E only, not in /S/L/E/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/. By the way thanks for you great work d00d I have a perfectly working hackintosh.
  12. Third KP. This time it happens when I try to wake up the computer. Actually the second KP was similar, the system KP when I woke the computer and started loading webpage in Safari. However, the first KP doesn't involve sleep/wake. Hope this helps! P.S. model identifier is MacPro4,1. Will try something like iMac8,1. I reinstalled Safari 4 Beta 2 and removed OpenHaltRestart.kext. I'll see if these works.
  13. I just got my second KP. Both KP happens when I was using Safari 4.0 beta (first KP was with beta one and second KP was with beta 2). I just reverted back to Safari 3 and see if this alleviate the KP issue. Other than that my system is fully working as usual. EDIT: With the 10.5.6 install previously, the system was very stable with 20+ days of use before a power outage but 0 KP problem.
  14. Sorry main install was 10.5.6 before updating but used vanilla 9.7.0 kernel. Just edited my post
