  1. Well there you go right there... I only have an EE with C/C# experience. It would be great if you could post a table of the valid indexes and what platform they relate to. Thanks for the excellent work.
  2. ALC892 appleHDA v2.0.5 Snow 10.6.8

    This did not work for me in 10.7. I am using Asus P8H67-I deluxe MB. I get the correct port assignments showing up in System Information, but no devices show up in the preference pane. Are you using the DSDT code posted above also? Or Just the Kext? Should the next be version 2.1.2 or 2.1.1? What ws modified in the kext? Thanks,
  3. Got this to work on P8H67-I Deluxe with i7-2600k. Switched DVI to be primary display. VGA still does not work; hangs at DSMOS has arrived. Not sure if HDMI works. But at least I don't have to swap cables anymore. Just to add notes to the thread... - Changed the IOPCIPrimaryMatch keys in AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext to <string>0x01228086</string> I deleted the other device id's as they are not needed - Followed instructions in post #1. Deleted first display entry in the "Table" padded with zeroes, and reduced the number of ports to 3. And to document previous issues: - Started out with 1024x768 on DVI. Vanilla install of 10.7 using MalDon's method. - After changing the IOPCIPrimaryMatch keys, got full resolution, but with really bad delay unless I booted with both VGA and DVI ports plugged in and then unplugged the VGA. Booting with just the DVI port at this point resulted in full res but really bad delay (caused by driver hangs). Primary Thanks to bcc9, how did you find this fix? Secondary thanks to Sketcher for pointing me back to this thread. Cheers,
  4. Please help with GTX260!

    You do realize that installing chameleon on your real mac is a very bad thing... This is why you get nothing. You need to be testing your installation on the target hack not your macbook pro.
  5. Please help with GTX260!

    If you are using the latest Chameleon RC5 and the GraphicsEnabled=yes switch then you should be fine. However you have not given much info to go on... You should have no enablers in your /extra folder when using this. I use an EFI string attached to my com.apple.Boot.plist file. You might be able to use my string, but this assumes you are on the same PCI root. Use at your own risk. It is better if you create you own. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Default Partition</key> <string>hd(1,1)</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1680x1050x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>No</string> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>busratio=25</string> <key>Legacy Logo</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>5</string> <key>device-properties</key> <string>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</string> </dict> </plist> For more information on using EFI strings go here: http://aquamac.proboards.com/index.cgi?boa...&thread=509 Use the GTX280 graphics file as your base. You will need to update the PCI root and the graphics ram size. I think I used 00000038 (AAAAOA==) for 768M. Use a plist editor to edit plist files. Hope this helps and good luck
  6. Can someone explain why I am getting this message? Unsupported CPU: P-states not generated! My processor does indeed support EST, so either there is a bug in the detection algorithm or something else. It does correctly detect the correct number of cores.

  8. DSDT does not have the mods for P and C states. I'm using RC5 and SSDT files in /extra. According to the boot messages, the SSDTs seem to be loading, but then there is a message about CPU not supported. So I'm not sure it is working. EDIT: Just rechecked the boot message: IT says "Unsupported CPU: P-states not generated!" I'd have to say that's either a bug or some undocumented feature
  9. What is the best way to determine if Speedstep is working? EDIT: Tried mark-i but it did not seem to be updating and it did not know what to do with all 6 cores of the 980x... Is there any other?
  10. My CPU (i7 980x) still comes up as unknown, no matter what I put in SMcputype. tried 1281 and other known values... Anyone with 980x have the correct string to make it work?
  11. Rampage III Gene

    Hi, I too am trying to use existing install and modifying kexts. What kernel? I am using legacy_kernel from nawcom et.al. Vanilla kernel panic'd after fakesmc loading. Is your SATA working normally? Mine is running very very slowly. Using the same kext. I can only run by setting busratio=25 (for 980X) and -force64. Otherwise, I get spontaneous reboot after reports of disk errors. Shut down and reboot do not work, are you seeing this? I am using 82566 kext and it appears to work. Although I have not tested it extensively yet. Video is a work in progress. I had a GTX260 running by EFI string in my previous build but it is not working yet in this one. The interim solution is an X1300. I am not using dsdt.aml. Need to refigure out how this is done. Did you extract your dsdt from the ROM or system? What did you use to extract and what modifications? Sorry for the long inquiry, there does not seem to be much support for Rampage IIIs on here. Regrards, ar
  12. There are folks that have sucessfully installed SL on the Rampage III Extreme out there, but alas there is no guide... I have a working vanilla 10.6.4 install (from a Maximus Formula) that I'm using as the base. I'm doing this rather than a complete re-install because of all the {censored} I have installed already. In theory, I should be able to apply the new dsdt with the appropriate injected kexts and come out with a working install. The problem is I get a kernel panic when fakesmc.kext tries to load with my newly extracted/patched dsdt. Can someone who has a working RIIIE dsdt share so I can do a compare? Also, besides fakesmc and VoodooHDA, are there any other kexts required? Right now all I have in the extensions folder is fakesmc. My bootloader is BootThink. Thanks, ar
  13. Excellent. Worked like a charm. Thanks so much!!! I think the problem is that the instructions should say: 1. Hit F8 to go into the Management menu. 2. Choose the partition you want to boot from with the arrow keys. 3. Enter # b=x <EnterKey> where x is boot delay in seconds. If choosing non-OS X partition as default there will be no prompt. Just enter the command at the end of what is displayed. The part about not having a prompt was mucking me up. If you want to show all partitions use # p=+ To show only bootable partitions use # p=- Thanks again! AR
  14. From the manual, # b=x sets the timeout and supposedly selects the default partition. Does this mean that it just boots the default partition after so many seconds or is it somehow choosing which partition is the default as well? An easier question might be: How do you set what the default partition is? Because it always seems to point at the SL partition and boots after whatever x=seconds I put in the command. Thanks, AR
  15. I tried Boot Think running off of a USB Flash disk. Using the Kexts from here and customized dsdl file. It does boot Both partitions without a hitch. I would rather use Chameleon as this Boot Think thing is a blatant rip off of the VoodooLabs work. Any suggestions?
