  1. I was trying to fix FireWire and took the wrong advise - removed HPET.kext. Kernel panic was the response and comp didn't boot unless in safeboot. I've took system harddrive into USB-pocket and restored the file manually. After that I've followed another advice which was to use Repair Disk Permission in DiskUtility but it didn't work showing an error message. But it turned out that in SafeBoot mode it works ok. I've spent a couple of days trying to fix that and tried to run Repair in SafeBoot like by accident. Well, hope that this post may save someones time.

    Fix for Firewire and HPET IRQ conflict using DSDT

    I've spent quite a time trying your guide but unfortunately my attempts were fruitless. Neither combination of free IRQ's worked for me. I mean I didn't try them all but about 12 combinations were tested. Still no FireWire
  3. here's the download link for my dsdt.aml generated with your help: http://www.sendspace.com/file/7libnb Thank you!
  4. umm... what exactly do you mean by upload? (forgive me being dumb ) Thanx!
  5. I was trying to make my FireWire working and followed one of advises here on the board to remove AppleHPET.kext to make it work. It caused Kernel Panic on boot, so I've put it back where it belongs S/L/E. But ever since then a strange phenomenon I observe. In safe mode (-x) it boots, then after a reboot it boots flawlessly (pretty long time though), BUT ONLY ONCE! Try rebooting again and you get the same Kernel Panic about HPET. Can anyone tell me how it's possible? I know that I sound like a green newbie and pretty much I am referred to Hack. And theoretically I could live with booting the system in safe mode and then again normally, but it takes 15 minutes! It's not something you look forward to when turning your comp on! I'm being too emotional 'cause of three sleepless nights. But anyway, I would really appreciate any help, fellows! Thanx! MB Asus P6T Deluxe Core i7 930 2.8 GHz 4 GB 1066 RAM SnowLeopard 10.6.5
