  1. Well...I figured out the problem. Apparently my SMBIOS.plist wasn't being loaded. I fixed the path and now speedstep seems to be working! Im just curious as to one thing however...my screen looks funny. There's 5 entries! It seems to be listing all possible speed states. Aren't there supposed to be two entries, each giving a real-time view of the core speed? It sounds like it's only using one of my cores (the bottom labeled "information" is where the speeds are reflected). Or is this how the program normally functions? I honestly wouldn't know. Other than that I have 3 things to work on: -Find a working audio kext. I haven't found one that makes both my headphones AND speakers work. I don't need the mic or HDMI (although if would be nice to have HDMI out) -trackpad kext that gives me scrolling (would really appreciate help with this one!) -My keyboard works fine but can't be identified by OSX. As a result, my shortcuts don't work. Any help with that one? Would appreciate some help here, thanks for all the solutions so far! I will also be posting my DSDT.aml shortly.
  2. I did the whole process painstakingly twice after the first mishap - im pretty sure it's done all right. I was thinking - I thought there was some debug mode or something in Chameleon that you can use to check if the DSDT.aml is being loaded? I googled for it but didn't find anything. I think I have my com.Apple.boot.plist right, here are the contents of that: I also am not 100% positive about my SMBIOS file. Here is the contents of that: Does that look right to you? I have a Core 2 Duo T7500 2.20 GHZ CPU. and 3 GB of ram. Thanks again.
  3. Thanks a lot for the response immo, just some weird issues now. I've patched everything up with the patcher (can't believe I skipped the most important step!) and now I can boot without a kernel panic. Everything seems to work except for one thing that im not sure of: Speedstep /cpu management. I install Coolbook but it shows 5 entries, but they all say "0 MHZ." I don't know if this means that something went wrong or if the software doesn't support SL? How else can I check if speedstep is working? I have a feeling that it isn't working however....my machine seems to run hot when running OSX. The thread with the DSDT pacther says the following: It's my understanding that AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement is needed for speedstepping to work....so this seems to contradict what is mentioned above. What should I do? I really want to know if speedstep is working before moving on to trying to cool my temps. Thanks.
  4. EDIT: never mind, it was a very noob problem. But I do have some questions here. What, exactly is supposed to work after this is done? I have done all the steps and here is a run down of what works and doesn't work: Works: USB GFX Sound (with Voodoo kext) Webcam Keyboard (works but is not recognized) Battery (installed VodooBattery) Doesn't work: Speedstep Bluetooth Trackpad scrolling Ethernet This actually leads me to another question - I was under the impression that a properly made DSDT.aml would eliminiate the need for kexts. Isn't it supposed to make the hardware work with OSX? Specifically, I was wondering if the sound/battery should have at least worked with my modified kext. I'm not quire sure what went wrong with the speedstep, i'll have to give it another try. In fact, the only thing that really was fixed in my dsdt modification was the USB. Question 2 : The only step I skipped was the following: Do you think not using DSDT patcher was responsible for my problems? I thought that was just an optional tool to automatically apply fixes. Question 3: I had to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (otherwise I got kernel panics). Did I do something wrong here?
  5. Sorry for the idiot question but im trying to install macgirls kext for my particular nvidia card. I currently have EFI strings installed....how do I remove them? I can only seem to find instructions for adding them, and I don't quite know enough to remove them on my own.

    [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    First of all I just wanted to say thanks for this execellent guide. I have an XPS m1330 and have one problem I can't seem to get over. The OS won't boot into AHCI mode. I can running 10.5.6. Are there an kext 's I need? Im using Atkos 5i.

    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x0040352B)

    Well, cpus=1 gives me n "IOPIC: Version 0x20 Vectors 0: 23" error. I got that initially and found the solution was to run cpus=2. Which has worked 5 or 6 times. I just don't understand why it's so inconstant. Thanks for the answer to the shutdown problem...now if only I can get it to install..
  8. This problem has me so frustrated. I am trying to install Ideneb and have had to do many different reinstalls for various screw ups. Each time I try to install it, I get this error: panic(cpu 0 caller 0x0040352B): [email="%E2%80%9CACPI:%20AcpiOsFree%E2%80%9D@/Volumes/disk1s2/leo_xnu/xnu-1228/iokit/Kernel/IOLib.cpp:724"]“ACPI: AcpiOsFree”@/Volumes/disk1s2/leo_xnu/xnu-1228/iokit/Kernel I run flags -v cpus=2 What I don't understand is that if I shut it down and turn it on, usually about 20-50 times, it will work at least once. Why is it inconsistent, I don't understand. Shouldn't it either work or not work? Once installed, it always boots perfectly without problems. (however if it matters, I cannot get it to shutdown properly yet, still working on a fix for that) I have a Dell XPS m1330. Would appreciate help, thanks! EDIT: I tried disabling dual cpu functionality.
  9. Hey guys, noob here trying to learn his way around. I realize that Refit requires the EFI of a real mac, but I was wondering if it would work if I installed EFIv8? Has anybody ever tried it? Do you guys think it would work or do I simply require an actual mac machine? Thanks!
