  1. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Thanks a bunch! Could you hit me with a 'look it' link about maxmem= ? I'm not sure how/where/when to apply that. Sure do appreciate your hard work!
  2. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Hey Maldon, I think you have this already, or did at one point (though I can't get the link to work), but I attached a clean DSDT from a Z68XP-UD4 (I booted w/ [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to extract the DSDT, couldn't get it w/ HackBoot). I also attached a send_me.zip in case it is helpful (sorry, I know the dsdt.aml in there is redundant). I've since attempted to apply patches from similar looking mobos' DSDTs, but I'm sure I'm not doing it optimally. I've got sleep & internet working w/ 10.6.8, but no sound so far. I know you've probably got a lot on your plate w/ 10.6.8, so please don't feel obligated to mess with these. Thanks a bunch for all of your hard work! (haven't plugged in the rest of the RAM yet. Will I need to re-extract the DSDT after so doing?) i7 2600k Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4 EVGA 9800x+ GTX 4 GB G-Skill 1033Hz 160GB Velociraptor Edit: I don't know why I couldn't get the link to load from the Z68 Auto-Patcher update. Sorry for being a dufus. In any case, there's no Z68XP-UD4 in there so far as I can tell, so perhaps this will be useful. If this DSDT ain't extracted properly, I'll be happy to boot into Ubuntu and extract it shortly. DSDT.aml.zip send_me.zip
  3. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Is the Z68 AutoPatcher download working? The link just takes me to the same page. Is it just a notification that the autopatcher has been updated for Z68 boards? Thanks!
  4. Apologies, when you say send, do you mean that this sort of info should be posted here rather than PM'd to you? If I were to reinstall in order to clean my system of any [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]/[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] residuals (as I'm not really certain what kexts, if any, it installs to S/L/E rather than just E/E), would I need to extract a new, pristine DSDT and then patch it, or could I continue to use the one you provided? I would need to further modify it if changing the BCLK, right? Thanks.
  5. Thanks most kindly. However, I'm afraid I've subsequently broken my audio. My boot is also considerably slower. The dsdt.aml file that you gave me is already patched, correct? If not, do I apply relevant patches, or leave it alone altogether? Sorry to be a hassle...
  6. My apologies for being obtuse. I rebooted w/o DSDT and used the autopatcher to extract a clean dsdt.aml, but am still not permitted to attach it (when you say send it to you, do you mean via PM?) I used your 'runme.app' before and after rebooting w/o a DSDT (after modifying my Extra folder), and attached both send_me.zips. If this is wrong, please let me know. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help. I reconfigured my system a few weeks ago to put it on an SSD, and used tonymacx86's method (as opposed to the DD style install I did initially), but have come to find that this method leaves me with less access to what's really going on. Is it possible to clean up this install, or should I just nuke it altogether and start afresh with your updated method? Thanks again. Ah, crud. Sorry, I didn't see you last post before replying. I reconfigured with these clunky kexts so that I could get a clean DSDT (I thought it was necessary to do so). Would it be better if I restored my last configuration and then used the code you suggested? send_me_ORIG.zip send_me.zip
  7. Is there any way to do it without Windows? Sorry, but I don't even have access to a Windows box. If need be, I can try to find a copy and install it on an extra drive. Thanks again for your help!
  8. Hi, I've been using a DSDT from tonymacx86's database, but I wholeheartedly agree with your suggestion that I should use the DSDT from my own box rather than a pre-compiled one. When I use the DSDT Auto-Patcher, I get the following error messages (and a suggestion to post em' to this forum): [Line 227 type Error message Object does not exist (\_SB.PCI0.PX40.AG3E)] [Line 233 type Error message Object does not exist (\_SB.PCI0.PX40.AG3E)] I have a mild overclock, do I need to set my bios back to stock to use the patcher? Snow Leopard 10.6.7 i7-920 overclocked to 3 GHz (increased base clock to 160Hz from 133Hz) Gigabyte GA X58A-UD3R rev 1.0 (F6 Bios) 12 GB 1033Hz DDR3 (6 x 2 2GB OCZ) GeForce 210 512 MB (NVIDIA) Thanks very much! ~Will (I tried to upload my DSDT.aml, but got "Upload failed. You are not permitted to upload this type of file.")
  9. Yeah, I understand that. It was the first step I took to try to correct the problem. For some reason I cannot understand, Matlab is having none of it (MATLAB, btw, is software that is essentially used for matrix algebra, and it has wide ranging applications across the sciences. I use it for fMRI analyses. It's sort of a weird mix between math software and a programming language).
  10. Did that seriously work out for you? I can't imagine that it did, but if so, please tell me about your setup.
  11. I've been trying to install a legal copy of Matlab_2010a, and I can't get it to work either. Oddly enough, I launched it once and it seemed to work fine, but I was still working out the kinks in my system. Now I keep getting License Manager Error -9. Matlab tech support was helpful until he figured out I was running a hack, and now I haven't heard peep from him. The whole reason I put this computer together was essentially to run Matlab, and I wanted to run OSX because that's what we do in the lab. If anyone has any ideas on this front, please do post em'!
  12. Does this guide work the same for the X58A-UD3R? How do these boards differ? Thanks much.
  13. Please forgive me if this is a foolish question, but if SnowLeopard 10.6.0 is already up and running, do you have to reinstall it in order to update to 10.6.3? I'm a little bit confused as to why if that's the case. Thank you very much for your time and effort.
