    i can confirm the CPU Halted error is gone when you install DP1 install USB and then update: DP2-> DP3-> DP4 in that order
  2. Anyone try installing Mavericks DP4

    i can't do anything after updating. i installed DP4 and after the installation the system shuts off completely.
  3. Asus P5Q, Mountain Lion wont boot, no panic.

    Hello everybody- after some research i guess its the Graphicscard again. a 3GB Version of a GTX 550 seems not to work since OS X seems to not like more than 2 GB. i will post my results with a other card maybe. thx for help anyway.
  4. Asus P5Q, Mountain Lion wont boot, no panic.

    okay the first one was a update from Lion to Mountain Lion. now i made a fresh install on a fresh HDD. i'm stuck at this screen on the updated Lion (picture 1) and stuck at this screen on the fresh install on the new HDD (picture 2)+ boot options are GraphicsEnabler=Yes, npci=0x3000 and darkwake=0 also UseKernelCache is enabled. EDIT i now did not use the provided fixes from the User on the Forums with the IOPCIFamily.kext etc. i used now all default kext on the InstallESD. Now i get promtly that error (picture 3) on the fresh install hdd. i also need to use "npci=0x3000" to boot up the installusb stick. after that all my HDD's are Orange in the Harddisk drive tool.
  5. Asus P5Q, Mountain Lion wont boot, no panic.

  6. Asus P5Q, Mountain Lion wont boot, no panic.

    Thx for replying. i checked my S/L/E and there is no fintek.kext FakeSMC Plugin. so i'm kinda curious why fintek is showing me errors anyway.. also thx for providing the Link. i just started the Thread just because i didnt knew any point of start or didnt knew any cause of the Problems.
  7. Hello everybody so here the Story of my install: i had a running System with 10.7.4 on a Asus P5Q, with a E8400 and a Nvidia GT430. i tried to install the GM Mountain Lion but had no Video. From a Source i needed to Patch the NVDAResman, NVDANV50Hal and NVDAGF100Hal.kext. Since then i could start the setup of Mountain Lion. after the installation was i started the System and got Panic from IOPCIFamily.kext. So i started to search on some Forums. i stumbled upon a thread where a User (domino (from this board)) comfirmed a working Mountain Lion on a Asus P5Q. i asked him that to give me his IOPCIFamily.kext and he provided this: I installed all of these kexts and since then i had no IOPCIFamily panic anymore. how i'm stuck at this attached Screen when i run OS X in verbose (normal run gets me the restart msg). i also heard that the Geforce GTX550 Ti works OOB with Lion and i wanted to upgrade anyway so i bought that Card today and replaced the patched NVDAResman, NVDANV50Hal and NVDAGF100Hal.kexts with the ones from the BaseSystem.dmg does anybody have a solution for this? current System on Signature.
  8. [MLGM] Asus P5Q working but no sleep

    hey! i had no IOPCIFamily.kext panic anymore since i added these to the system. but i had to replace 3 files to get the Setup show up since my old graphicscard (GT430) only worked with them. Now the System SEEMS to work but no Video is shown up since i bought a new Graphicscard today (GTX550 TI (confirmed to run OOB)). so i don't wanna disturb you in any way but maybe you could provide me these 3 Files? NVDAResman.kext NVDANV50Hal.kext NVDAGF100Hal.kext these the ones i replaced on my USB Stick (the Setup was not working with my old GT430 so i needed to replace these Files and it worked. But now with the new GTX550 TI i guess i need the original ones back.). now the setup wont show up too so i guess its now these kexts that interrupt me. but many many thx so far @domino !
  9. [MLGM] Asus P5Q working but no sleep

    @domino could you provide your IOPCIFamily.kext ? i still get the panic when i try to boot the System. i already also used the netkas.org IOPCIFamily.kext but it didnt work too. so maybe yours could help to get my system running. (if its just the P5Q, not P5Q Pro or something like that.)
