  3. Asus P5N7A-VM

    So, I've rolled back the bios to v0407 and applied Frodokenny's dsdt.aml and kexts. I now get AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext loading without disabler or panics. I also now get the option for 'Restart automatically after power failure' in energy saver preferences for the first time. I don't get wake from sleep though.. argh!

    Yeah that too, tried Auto, 128, 256, 512. No dice. Probably going to try a reinstall from retail and start over.

  6. Asus P5N7A-VM

    I have 2 x Samsung F1 1TB, a Seagate 750GB and a WD 500GB eSATA drive attached. Having problems waking from sleep. Restart works. Going into sleep works, and the fans stop. Just can't wake it up again. Tried the things mentioned through out this post (USB off in bios, removed disabler.kext, etc.). I've managed to get it to hibernate/deep sleep, powered off and powered back on, then resumed from the sleep image, but thats it. Driving me nuts...
  7. Install OSX on P5B-VM

    Here's what I did: I used a 10.4.8 iso which I downloaded from demonoid: JaS.Mac.OS.X.10.4.8.AMD.Intel.SSE2.SSE3.PPF.1.Defiant.diskutil.biker880.ich7-R.patch.Integrated.iso I had to do it in VMWare, becuase I did not have a sata dvd drive and the dvd drive connected to the JMicron Pata controller is not recognised during install. If you do it in VMWare there are plenty of guides on the forum. After installation I used the following: http://www.sabrsoft.com/randomstuff/ds3-4pack.1.2.dmg and selected the following to install: Azalia Audio fix Jmicro SATA/IDE fix Jas 10.4.8 ICH8 Make the following changes to the files below: In AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/info.plist <key>Realtek ALC880/ALC860 Codec Driver</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAzaliaAudio</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAzaliaAudioCodecALC880</string> <key>IOHDAudioCodecVendorID</key> <string>0x11d41988</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>10000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOHDAudioCodecDevice</string> </dict> In AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAzaliaController.kext/Contents/info.plist <key>Intel ICH6 Azalia Audio</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAzaliaController</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAzaliaController</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x284b8086 0x26688086</string> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> </dict> For Sata disk to be recognised: Modify AppleAHCIPort.kext/Contents/info.plist <key>ICH8 AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>ICH8 AHCI</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAHCI</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x28248086 0x28208086 0x28258086</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>Intel</string> </dict> Modify AppleVIAATA.kext/Contents/info.plist <key>VIA SATA Controller</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleVIAATA</string> <key>Hardware Name</key> <string>8237 SATA</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleVIAATARoot</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x2363197B 0x28208086 0x28258086</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <string>1000</string> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Serial ATA</key> <true/> </dict> Copy AppleVIAATA.kext and AppleAHCIPort.kext to IOATAFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ Repair all permissions (preferably at command line and also inside IOATAFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ and AppleAzaliaAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns/) and reboot.
