  1. Hi Kabyl, can you check this bios? ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38501-39000/sp38809.exe It's an auto extracting zip file, it contains rom.cab that contains rom.bin, I think it's this the relvant part; it belongs to an hp nx9420 (laptop); it does boot with two cores, sometimes, not always, with tiger and with leo, EFI v8 working and various kernels tested ok but after 1-2 minutes it hangs (freezes); sometimes hangs with "could not start cpu01" at boot and subsequently reboots; with one core works ok; gfx chipset ATI x1600, works with ATIinject , usb, firewire; Thank you, for taking care of a problem so spread!!!

    BOOT DA HDD ESTERNO

    Ciao! stai usando il bootloader acronis? Io ho mac osx su hd esterno, usb2 wd da 120 gb, ma il portatile è intel. Tuttavia funziona benissimo... anche se al primo boot (partenza da spento) acronis mi da' un errore tipo "invalid boot sector". al successivo riavvio pero' funziona correttamente... I miei 2 c... Ciao Nick

    E' arrivato mac os X 10.4.9

    partenza da spento: a volte si pianta su failed to start cpu ecc. ma non di frequente come per la 10.4.8; partenza dopo un reboot da xp: funziona bene per un po' poi va in freeze il desktop e continua a funzionare il mouse sospetto che sia (anche) un problema di ... speedstep o come altro si chiama e ACPI. di fatto, ho scaricato il pkg del power management, non credo sia l'unico pkg che serve, appena provo ti faccio sapere

    Fatto, l'aggiornamento, andato tutto ok ! Ho usato i driver ATIinject.kext ecc della versione precedente e funzionano. QE/QX supportati ecc. tra l'altro mi è sparito il problema della necessità di mettere cpus=1 aal boot, intermittentemente, ma non ho (ancora) capito a che cosa è dovuto questo problema... e si' che nel forum ho provato a cercare, ma sembra essere tanto diffuso quanto non affrontato...

    Thanks, TRN, First, I've just upgraded to 10.4.9 and it works (at this time) ok, using the same ATINdrv.kext , IONDriver.kext and ATIinject.kext from the previous installation. QE and other stuff are working ok. About LAN, there is a package (modified) that can help, but it's far to be perfect... Whatever I followed these instructions: It's from a post here, but I don't remember where, anyway it worked and I repost here, apologizing with the author: "-I managed to patch driver additionally to skip the NVRam Init and Check functions and now my PCI-X BCM5751m (167d device id) works even with small limitations dev.gif Limitations inlude: Mac doesn't read the Mac Address (obviously it's in NVRam), does not count properly speed (it's 10 times lower in my observations, so when downloading Mac shows 10 times faster speeds than actual is... I don't care) and I didn't manage to start dhcp on start so I had to enter IP/Mask/Router/DNS manually but IT WORKS angel.png In my opinion patch will work on 5750/5751 chips as well device id's 1677/1778 and so on but any feedback will be appreciated. so I personally pathed all occurences of: "66 81 FA 59 16" to "66 81 FA 7D 16" (It's the instruction cmp dx, 167d... yes everywhere in driver compare is against dx... I tripple checked it) not just 37336... there are 46 occurences... if I remember correctly Second (my patch) at 37554 change 75 71 to EB 71... this changes just before initnvram and checknvram functions a jnz to a jmp... I think that this jnz is a check if there is nvram present but of course I'm not sure. I don't know if this is the best way to patch it, mostly sure it is not but it works for me... Test it on your own risk as I did..." For wlan, well, there is a lot of work going on, but it's still too early... I bought a d-link usb key on ebay (dwl g 122 rev c) and it works perfectly. Cordialità, Nick p.s. there is a print screen of 10.4.9 attached ... 10.4.9.tiff

    Yes, follow Diabolik instructions and insert it by hand using plist editor: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Property_List_Editor remember to change your edid, though. cheers, Nick

    Hi, Try the way I described in my last post; I.e. Use plist editor to make changes; check : ---------:<-------- <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x71C51002</string> ---------:<-------- is written this way (no "&" in the middle) and put your edid in both places of the old Info2.plist (in my attached files is already named Info.plist) this way: ---------:<-------- <key>DFP1,EDID</key> <data> AP///////wAyDIkSAAAAAAAPAQOAJRd4CiMAmFhRjCkm UFQAAAABAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBqC+Q4GAaEEAgQBMA b+YQAAAYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA/gBMR1Bo aWxpcHNMQ0QKAAAA/gBMUDE3MVdFMi1UTDAzAHA= </data> <key>LVDS,EDID</key> <data> AP///////wAyDIkSAAAAAAAPAQOAJRd4CiMAmFhRjCkm UFQAAAABAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBqC+Q4GAaEEAgQBMA b+YQAAAYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA/gBMR1Bo aWxpcHNMQ0QKAAAA/gBMUDE3MVdFMi1UTDAzAHA= </data> <key>device-id</key> ---------:<-------- after that, rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache be careful not to rm the whole Extensions dir (yes, I did this once, too many yawns at 3.00 am LOL). keep us informed, cheers, Nick Nick's System: HP Compaq NX9420 Intel Core 2 Duo 1.83GHz 1GB Ram 100GB SATA HDD Ati Mobility x1600 Dev ID 71C5 Laptop monitor vendor ID LPL1289 Internal WLan: Intel 3945abg NOT working (yet) Embedded ethernet Broadcom netxtreme M ven 14e3 dev id 16fd NOW WORKS!!!

    Hi Koala, I never had this problem, but you can try with cpus=1 platform=ACPI as startup options; this seems to fix many problems. Also try to disable SATA native support in bios, if you have a SATA hd, of course. However I think you better check partition table... But in this forum there are some other threads about this problem. Keep us informed, cheers, Nick

    SOLUTION!!! well, a sort of... This time I got it!!! Same results as Sheriffbounce (1680X1050 and reschange), but I've had to modify a couple of things: I must premit I started from the kext Sheriffbounce posted some time ago in this thread. First, IOPCImatch in Info.plist, and consequently Info2.plist, was wrong; was 0x00001002&0x0000ffff and should be 0x71C51002; In second place as I was getting nothing with the Info.plist with one monitor, I tried to put two identical edid in DFP1,EDID and LVDS,EDID - the keys of Info2.plist. and Tah dah!!! 1680x1050 and res change.... very good .... Many thanks to Sheriffbounce for he pointed me to the right direction. here is the kext I use: remember to modify accordingly with your configuration (EDID is good for hp9420, change it for your conf) cheers, Nick Nick's System: HP Compaq NX9420 Intel Core 2 Duo 1.83GHz working 1 core cold start and 2 cores after reboot from windows ...

    Hi SHeriff, Thank you for your reply, here 's my edid: Here is my edid - got it with phoenix - does it look like yours? manufacturer Monitor/LPL1289 hardware ID LPL1289 EDID BYTES: 0x 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F ------------------------------------------------ 00 | 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 32 0C 89 12 00 00 00 00 10 | 00 0F 01 03 80 25 17 78 0A 23 00 98 58 51 8C 29 20 | 26 50 54 00 00 00 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 30 | 01 01 01 01 01 01 A8 2F 90 E0 60 1A 10 40 20 40 40 | 13 00 6F E6 10 00 00 18 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 50 | 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 FE 00 4C 60 | 47 50 68 69 6C 69 70 73 4C 43 44 0A 00 00 00 FE 70 | 00 4C 50 31 37 31 57 45 32 2D 54 4C 30 33 00 70 I bet it's the same as yours :-) That's why I think there must be something missing in my conf. However, typo are always on the way, so double check with you will be very fine :-) . Besides display there is the broadcom 1gb that's not working, and the intel wireless, but I think we should wait for a compelte solution AFAIK ... talking about displays, I have found this page: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?sto...030212065523164 but as I'm busy working I think I'll give it a try one of these evenings... Another thing I noticed: cold starting osx impossible, must write cpus=1 at boot starting osx after windows (rebooting) 2 cpus ok (no need to write cpus=1) is it the same for you?

    Hi Koala75, I tried even with softmccs, and I get a different edid; but raw data edid seems the same as the edid I get with phoenix. The strange thing, I think, is to have the same laptop as sheriffbounce and don't get expected results. I.E. the edid of sheriffbounce seems to be exactly like mine, not a surprise given the fact his laptop is the same as mine, except for the cpu clock. So I must suppose - if this is true - the solution lies in another place, not in edid or even in ATIinject.kext, but in some setting/kext/Display or other damn stuff the sheriff has and I haven't. Wouldn't it be nice to get an image of sheriffbounce system and compare with mine...? cheers, Nick Nick's System: HP Compaq NX9420 Intel Core 2 Duo 1.83GHz 1GB Ram 100GB SATA HDD Ati Mobility x1600 Dev ID 71C5 Laptop monitor vendor ID LPL1289 Internal WLan: Intel 3945abg Bluetooth OK OSX 10.4.8 JAS DVD
