  1. Maybe, you should read the "SSDT-Expert-Thread"... http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=253642 Hope this will help you...
  2. Are you using Chimera or Chameleon as bootloader? I'm on Chimera, works flawless... Chimera and Chameleon (in recent builds) are searching for "SSDT.aml" in your extras folder. So don't rename it to SSDT-1.aml - just let it "SSDT.aml". I don't know how to extract oder modify a SSDT, so if yours is not alright, you might research for a solution... EDIT: I read you are using the Legacy-Kernel? This might be the problem... you should be using the Darwin-Kernel. With the newest Chimera build, this is possible on a MSI board.
  3. actually, I don't care if it's nonsense... it works. seems like it would not work, if I copied the smbios to plugins folder - as you can see in geticus' case. ...but maybe I will try it, just to see if you're right and the i7 would reach more PStates. EDIT: I tested the iMac12_2.plist... not successful. My System is not properly recognized, it says imac 12,1 after rebuildcaches and reboot. I added the plist in the specific Plugins folder, but when rebuilding caches, I get a message that the "IOPlatform-whatever.kext" seems to be damaged and cannot be used. Speedstep is not working, CPU is stuck at 3.4 GHz, no Turbo. So right now, MacPro3,1 is the better choice for me... and actually my G5-Casemod looks more like a MacPro
  4. So, here we go... geticus, you were right... SpeedStep was not working, I misinterpreted the blinking LEDs, MSRDumper made it clear. My i7 was running at 1.6 Ghz I tested "DropSSDT=Yes" and "DropSSDT=No", no effect. When I renamed SSDT.aml to SSDT-1.aml, my system did not boot up anymore ("SSDT.aml not found") Then I tried to use another smbios.plist. My choice was MacPro3,1 of tonymacx86's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 3.8. Here the results... So five PStates are reached, Geekbench result is pretty OK for a stock i7 2600K. I'm happy with that When I was using iMac12,2.plist I did not add it in the ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugIn folder... no idea if this would have changed something. Best regards, joshua
  5. I'm having the same problem as Regae had... Speedstep seems to work (my Mainboard has some LEDs which indicate the Powerstates... and they are blinking as like in Windows) I did not try to use MSRDump to view the Powerstates yet. Sleep works flawless, too. ...But my Geekbench score went down. (ca. 5800). I'm on a MSI P67A-GD55 with a i7 2600K, OSX 10.6.8 booting up with Chimera v1.4.1 r877. I've inserted a modified DSDT.aml (thx to MaDl0n) and a SSDT-1.aml for my CPU, using a iMac 12,2-smbios and added "GeneratePStates",PStates... in boot.plist. So what to do to fix my performance problem? Please help... One thing: I've put the iMac smbios.plist in "Extras" folder, but the one I've found here differs a lot from the one given by tonymacx86's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], it's much much longer. I've tried both, but no difference. Or is the Extras folder not the right location?
  6. Hmm... If I had seen this some weeks earlier, I would not have spent some nights wiring my G5 IO panel But I'm happy with my result, the way it looks now. - could not look more original, apart from the black Ethernet port, but I could not rescue the old one So, very nice idea! I think you should optimize it, to integrate the FW-port, and to get rid of the "black holes" in the panel. Best regards, joshua
  7. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Olá MaLd0n! Right now I'm running OS X 10.6.8 (with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]) on my Hack, but as I'm not having a proper DSDT, there are some things which aren't the way the should be. There is a Autopatcher DSDT for my MB but not for B3 and the current EFI Bios - so it does not boot up and hangs with a kernel Panic. (CPUPowermgmt…) With NullCPU… it boots up, but it's all the same as not using a DSDT… I tried to make my own DSDT with a help of tonymacx86's tutorial, but I failed. The MSI DSDT was too different from the Gigabyte DSDTs …so maybe you could make a new DSDT? I Attached the files, extracted after booting up with Chimera. I'm not able to boot up with a BootCD any more, I don't know why… tested everything, Hackboot V6, [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] Legacy, -x, -v, PCIRootUID=1, GraphicsEnabler=no… nothing helps. These are my specs, if you need them... Core i7 2600K MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) *Realtek ALC892 *Realtek 8111E Ethernet *VIA VT6308P Firewire *NEC USB 3.0 8GB (2x4) DDR3 1333 Gainward GTX 460 GS 2GB Apple AirPort Extreme (Broadcom BCM43xx) 2x Samsung SpinPoit F3 1000GB HDD Sony Optiarc DVD-RW I'm lacking Speedstep, Sleep - and for some reason: Firewire.
