  1. Clover issues

    Hi forum In my hackintosh I have two SSDs, one for Windows and other for OS X. I used to boot using Chameleon but during this weekend I migrated to Clover. In the Clover wiki it says: Yet, even if I set the timeout to zero and hold a key, it boots automatically to the last booted volume instead of invoking the GUI. I want to get a functionality similar to a Mac where the machine will always boot to the last booted operating system but you can press Alt to show the boot loader GUI. Is there something I'm missing? Also, I got a lot of problems to get Windows to boot. It turns out I had to turn off the Intel HD Graphics which is not a very big issue as I have an nVidia card, yet I would like to been able to boot with the IGPU turned on. The original issue was that clover would boot correctly, but after the loading screen I'd get just a black screen (much like in this video). How could I fix this problem? (I have a GTX 680 and a GA-Z97X-SLI). Finally, is there a way to install the BootCamp control panel in my Windows installation? If not, is there something similar to that? Because I want to be able to change the boot partition before rebooting without the need to go in the Clover GUI. Thanks!
  2. I have a mac home server (real MacMini, no hackintosh). It had Mountain Lion and the Server app. I had correctly configured my router to forward the VPN ports to the server and everything worked well. Then I updated to Mavericks and the new Server app and, surprise! the VPN server no longer works outside my network. Inside my network I can connect to the VPN if I use the local IP, but if I use my external IP it fails to connect. Reading the Apple Discussion forums it seems I'm not the only one, so anyone has any ideas? Thanks
  3. Can't get my hackintosh to sleep

    his has been my adventure so far: I booted without tony's DSDT and installing NullCPUPowerManagement so I don't get a kernel panic for the lack of HPET, I got a "virgin" DSDT with MaciASL. Then I removed NullCPUPowerManagement, rebuild the kext cache and the permissions and boot with tony's DSDT, surprise surprise! sound doesn't work any more (to got it working originally I only used the patched AppleHDA from tony's tools). Using the default MaciASL "source" (the one called sourceforge) I applied the patch: "Remove WMI" to my "virgin" DSDT. From oralila I downloaded the following patches and applied them to my "virgin" DSDT: Desktop -> DTGP, LPC NEHALEM Misc -> AHCI SATA orange icon, Mac devices, New HPET, WAK I restarted with the new DSDT, I don't get the kernel panic for the HPET and that's cool. Then with IORegistryExplorer I got the "IOName" of my LPC device (which is called PX40 in the DSDT): "pci8086,3a16" and edited my AppleLPC.kext adding a new entry in "IONameMatch". After a restart my system now loads AppleLPC. The decompiled DSDT obtained from this is attached to this post (is called working.txt). Right now with this new DSDT the computer DOESN'T goes to sleep, doesn't shutdown and I don't have sound. I have tried two of these audio injection methods (the one with the kext and the DSDT patches) with this AppleHDA patch and both give me sound but with lag and cracking noises. As a side note, tony has a repo for MaciASL and in it a patch named "Award Gigabyte 1366 Fixes MacMan", so I gave it a shot with my virgin DSDT. Haven't tried sound but shutdown and sleep works but when I wake up my machine it restarts instead. virgin.txt working.txt
  4. Can't get my hackintosh to sleep

    Ok, everything in my machine works (at least everything I use, I cannot test the USB3 or eSATA ports but I don't use them), except sleep. I can send the machine to. I select the option "Sleep" in the little apple menu and all the LEDs and fans turn off as I'd expect, is like the PC have turned off. But when I try to wake up my machine (press any key in the keyboard, click the mouse, push the power on button) the energy comes back, the LEDs turn on, the fans start moving but the screen stays black. I've tried to ping my machine in that state but I don't get answer, therefor I don't think is a graphics problem as it seems the full system has failed to wake up.
  5. Can't get my hackintosh to sleep

    that's exactly my question, how do I know what patches to use in my virgin DSDT?
  6. Can't get my hackintosh to sleep

    I have already tried the rollback of AppleACPIPlatform, the one PimentelX86 posted and one from tony's tools, neither of them worked. I'll make a new DSDT (extract a virgin one and then patch it), how do I know what patches do I need? Also, I have a patched kext for sound and the AppleRTC kext. If I patch my DSDT for these issues I won't need these kexts anymore?
  7. Can't get my hackintosh to sleep

    I already have GraphicsEnabler=No in my org.chameleon.Boot.plist I haven't tried the AppleLPC patch to the DSDT as I've been away from home, when I get back I'll try
  8. Can't get my hackintosh to sleep

    I don't think is a graphic issue, when the computer fails to wake up I can't ping it, therefor the network is also down.
  9. Can't get my hackintosh to sleep

    It didn't work... A normal boot wouldn't show the loggin screen, after the white Apple loading screen it'd go black, it was just like I just had wake up the machine. I could boot correctly with either npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000, still I couldn't wake the machine... I'm rolling back to my original AppleACPIPlatform.kext Is there any place where I can find an explanation of what I have to put in the DSDT? I'd like to learn so I can write my own patches, if not how do I know what patches should I apply to my extracted DSDT?
  10. Can't get my hackintosh to sleep

    P and C states are enabled, as you can see in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist that I put in my first post. I think that I forget to mention that my system is fully functional except by sleep. Your "real hackintosh" thread doesn't give any real new information to fix my problem. I don't want to sound harsh, I have read the thread about TonyMac and understand why TonyMac's tools ain't supported but I don't think this is its fault. I have even downloaded his Chameleon branch, the trunk and compared the files that enable the P and C steps and they are almost equal, except by some white spaces and code that is not related to the C/P States problem. Can we focus in fixing my problem rather than ranting about Tony (I also think that there are some things wrong with his rules)? What I did was to enable C3/C6/C7 in my BIOS (MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.)->Advanced Frequency Settings->Adcanced CPU Core Features->C3/C6/C7 State Support) and changing C1E from "Auto" to "Enable". Still I can't get my hackintosh to wake up. I'll extract my DSDT from Windows and compare it with the one I'm using... Thanks?
  11. I'm very frustrated because I can't get sleep to work and I need it working. The computer goes correctly and at first sometimes it wouldn't wake up, now never wakes up. I've tried several things but nothing has worked so far: First my specs: OS X 10.8.5 Intel i7 930 @ 2.8 GHz Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (Rev. 2.0), FH BIOS 8 GB of RAM (G.Skill 2GBx4) EVGA GTX 680 FTW LE Seagate ST3250410AS 250GB (I have other hard disks, but I use this for OS X) ATAPI iHAS222 DVD reader/writer Some IOGear bluetooth adapter In my BIOS the only relevant setting I have changed is set HPET Mode to 64 bit. Using TonyMac's* utils I installed OS X (10.8 then updated then to 10.8.5) and the following kexts: Patched AppleHDA.kext (10.8.5) for ALC889 by Toleda AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA 0.4, AHCI_3rdParty_SATA 0.4 and JMicron36xATA 1.0.2 by MacMan FakeSMC 5.3.820 by netkas GenericUSBXHCI 1.2.6d2 by Zenith432 AppleRTC 1.5 I'm using 2.2.0 r2148 and the DSDT for my motherboard I downloaded from TonyMac webpage.

Use darkwake=no, darkwake=yes, darkwake=1, darkwake=3, darkwake=8 and no darkwake Also I've tried npci=0x2000 and npci=0x3000 I haven't patched my DSDT because I don't know what patch should I apply (if any) I haven't patched AppleRTC because I don't have CMOS problems Please, please. Help * I know this site doesn't support TonyMac's utils but I don't think my problem is related to those
  12. Hello people. I'll make a fast introduction of myself. I'm studying engineering, it's not new to install operating systems, or working in a UNIX environment. I have successfully installed Gentoo, Ubuntu, Fedora, Red Hat (the old one), Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 98 SE, etc. I have compiled drivers and build computers, still I'm not that cool as I have to ask things in this forum (and others). Ok, so this is the problem, I have a Lanix (Mexican computer brand) Lap Top that I must install Mac OS X. I followed this guide: http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/04/ibo...ac-os-x-on.html. I have the following problems with the following devices Sleep Enabler: I downloaded, compiled and installed this: http://code.google.com/p/xnu-sleep-enabler/. Doesn't works, I've read that Sleep Enabler it's version specific (first updated to 10.6.6, then installed Sleep Enabler), but it's hardware specific? I made something wrong? Power Management: When I open the Power Management panel in System Preferences I can't activate "show battery status in the menu bar", I suppose the power management driver it's not present, so... it's this one hardware specific? I found one but didn't work... Mouse (not actually a problem): While booting from the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] CD, the mouse can scroll with two fingers. But with the Voodoo PS/2 that comes with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] this functionality it's lost. Card Reader & FireWire: Same problem than the mouse [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] CD detects them, after installing [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] the functionality it's lost... Thanks a lot EDIT: I add the lspci output from Ubuntu lspci_lanix.txt
