    Fix for Firewire and HPET IRQ conflict using DSDT

    I managed to patch the devices as described with the dtgp method but still to no avail. No more GUID errors but no firewire neither. I can see it in linux but not in the resultant dsdt. I think I am just not editing the DSDT correctly. Like the placement of the hacked in edits is probably wrong. I haven't really found anything that sheds new light on the issue. I could try reverting back to another driver from leopard but I want sleep to work. The only real change is that now when I go to system profiler console shows. 14-02-14 5:13:00 PM System Profiler[261] SPFWR ERROR: FireWire bus may be unstable. Other FireWire devices may be present. Which really doesn't help me much. No sight of anyone fixing firewire with a DSDT edit on the boards that I can find that matches my situation. I really hoped that patching a clean dsdt would have worked. Alas... untill next week. Josh

    Fix for Firewire and HPET IRQ conflict using DSDT

    I have extracted a DSDT and applied the patch but I still can see no FRWR device in the newly patched and extracted DSDT. I used a live disk of mint for the extraction. I see all sorts of devices now that I don't think were there before like the TPM chip. Everything seems stable only I still see the Firewire GUID 000000000000 is invalid! in console and the onboard firewire is still not working. I thought my own extracted dsdt would be unstable but the patch from the site you listed worked! I am now wondering if I simply need to find a place to change the GUID and add that code into the DSDT to add a firewire device. I am looking into the DTGP method now...

    Ok, wow. Thank you!

    Fix for Firewire and HPET IRQ conflict using DSDT

    Removing the IRQs did nothing unfortunately. I think adding the onboard device will be necessary. I did extract the dsdt from aida64 but that didn't work either. I checked out that page on DSDT editing. One more question is the dsdt file case sensitive on booting?

    Fix for Firewire and HPET IRQ conflict using DSDT

    Thanks for replying. My apologies for being vague about the issue. Here is the situation as best as I can see it. I am using a Gigabyte GA-EP45T-DS3R with a DSDT made for a GA-EP45T-UD3LR which is a similar board. It works with a vanilla install with all USB (save for the vague iLok issue), onboard NICs, Sleep/Wake, SATA working perfectly. Onboard Firewire is not working however. I have an expansion card just to keep working with the system since firewire is integral to my setup for audio. When I tried Pere's code I refreshed the tree and it seemed to be working as devices showed in the correct format but when compiling I received an error on line 217 of the DSDT Notify (\_SB.PCI0.PCIB.FRWR, 0x00) The error in DSDT editor is Object does not exist (\_SB.PCI0.PCIB.FRWR) I have not done the DTGP method so you are right about that. I was not aware of injecting that code and have found examples online now. The iLok issue is odd as the iLok Client can see and update the licenser. But when launching Pro Tools it cannot be found. I am using the eLicenscer without any difficulties though for other DAW software. I have tried all the onboard USB and the issue remains no matter which port it is in. I have disabled the serial ports in BIOS and still cannot get Firewire to cooperate. I have looked throught the user manual but I can't find an IRQ table just some block diagrams and installation instructions. I am removing all instances of IRQNoFlags and will see if that helps. Is it better to use a live disk to extract a new dsdt? Thanks again your help is really appreciated, I am so glad someone answered. Apologies if I left something out. I am fairly new to this side of pc's running OSx
  6. I have installed a cheap third party (TI based) firewire card in a PCI slot and have firewire but I think it's rather silly to have to do that when the functionality is locked inside a DSDT. I am willing to commit my month to solving this if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Josh

    Fix for Firewire and HPET IRQ conflict using DSDT

    Hey all, Having an issue with the GA-EP45T-DS3R as well. I think IRQs are to blame. I am not versed in machine language and edited my HPET IRQs but the firewire card seemed to still have issues. As well my ilok is giving me grief which I suspect is and IRQ conflict with my USB controller. The board is great for audio and I think if we were able to work it out it would still be a great boon to audiophiles out there. I tried the edit pere had suggested above but could not complile it due to errors where it said an object did not exist. I checked all my device names and they did seem to be present in other parts of the DSDT. I am really not sure how to debug this issue. I am thinking about buying another PCI based USB card but it's a pain considering the board has everything I need in it. The iLok is the only authenticator that doesn't work as my eLicenser has no issues. I am willing to take the whole week to fix this issue. If you could lend a hand and understand machine language and the fairly dense principles of DSDT editing it would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Hey all I am using the same motherboard (GA-EP45T-DS3R) and I have a DSDT issue I think. It is possibly causing an IRQ conflict with a device I don't recognize. (it looks like a pci lane?) Or maybe I am mistaken... (very likely) I have read that looking at the DSDT you can find IRQs that are called in conflict but I didn't see any evidence of this. I found an older DSDT on OSx86 that is for this motherboard but it kps as soon as it reaches the desktop. I see my firewire drivers bounce in the dock twice so I know the DSDT is correct for the firewire settings. I am going to post both DSDT's here. If anyone has any advice I'd love to hear it. Machine language is really complicated looking. Thanks for everything guys! The DSDT which loads the desktop before a KP is posted here The DSDT which boots without firewire devices listed is posted here under gigabyte - p45 - EP45T-UD3LR- f10 I know the dsdt I am booting with isn't right for my mobo but it at least will run. If I had installed using the wrong dsdt would that cause kp's when switching it? The most of the components are the same on those mother boards. Thanks all for any help! This is where the learning curve gets steep. Josh
  9. Hey all, I want to get a dual boot situation in order, I am looking at assigning the ICH10R chipset to my Windows data and let something like a Caldigit 8bay SAS handle my Mac business. It's a pain to have to own double the HDD media but I DON'T think handling my data with Paragon on a hardware RAID shared between two OSs is a road I'm ready to travel. Windows has to be in the equation. Has anyone had any success with any RAID hardware? Anyone found one that has drivers for both OSx and Win7 that they are a fan of? I'd probably use MacDrive to copy data to the ICH10r from the HFS+ volumes so it's managed by the Intel drivers. Cheers, jvamos
