  1. Sierra is working fine for me. Upgraded directly from the App Store
  2. Never mind my post about not being able to boot the installer usb. I did some reading and saw they changed the USB stack, moving usb ports did the trick.
  3. hmm, yeah my setup works just fine, and has for multiple OS upgrades, just can't get the installer to boot. No clue why the installer won't boot. Maybe it's my gtx960...
  4. Any of you gentlemen have a config that is working for El Capitan installer? My current one that has worked for 3 years now doesn't seem to be able to boot the installer. I guess I'm out of the loop as I haven't done a fresh install in quite some time. Would love a response with a working config to boot the installer and / or instructions for post install.
  5. I can't seem to get the installer to boot. Is something new needed with El Capitan? I've been using the same config for 3 versions now and have updated directly from the app store, but now I want to do a fresh install. My current config with Yosemite won't boot the installer usb. Can you share a config that will boot the installer?
  6. Sorry for the late response, super long night last night. reflashed bios / reinstalled 10.10, installed arch on a dual boot, built web server, vpn, etc.. I appreciate the time you took to post the file, many thanks.
  7. or whatever is the latest bios people are using. I haven't made any changes here in a couple years now. I was assuming that was the newest.
  8. yeah, I'm going to tear down this machine and redo it, I have the bios file just fine, I just don't have access to windows to add the firewire.efi to the bios, the console errors will drive me bat{censored}. I suppose I could fumble around and see if there's linux tools for that. I do have an arch install...
  9. can someone post this again please? link is dead, I don't have access to windows to edit the bios file myself
  10. heh.. I just came here to make sure you were aware of this, yeah I'm getting more states now too, haven't seen any boot issues yet though, but I just changed it, will let you know if they arise / what I do about it.
  11. I'll look into this in a bit, in the mean time, I think maybe we should look into whether or not these things are reporting CPU states properly. MSRDumper is reporting the same thing you're reporting for me, despite the fact that other things are reporting other states. So it's possible something with 10.10 has changed this. I've personally witnessed this SSDT file spit out at least 3 states in the "20's" range, which it is not doing with MSRDumper currently. I'll let you know if I find anything.
  12. How are you verifying your CPU states? just HW Monitor or are you watching them in console?
  13. Try just sticking with the iMac smbios, the macmini causes other problems with quicktime, hardware acceleration. I'm using iMac with more states than I had with the mac mini smbios, I just use SSDT to generate more. I have the 3770k also, put the ssdt in the acpi / patched folder along where you dsdt is https://www.dropbox.com/s/qvp6zwf0tb1r6rp/SSDT.aml?dl=0 That's mine I'm sharing, or generate your own with the script.
  14. Yeah, I've just given up on sleep, everything works fine with sleep disabled. This computer is a media server for multiple households as well so it's not doing much sleeping as it is anyway.
  15. I'm having similar issues as some of you with USB, but it's only after sleep. I've upgraded from the App Store since Lion, and I've never experienced any issues. It's always been the case for me that sleep inevitably breaks something, some people can live with it, or never notice, for me sleep always made console spit cpu errors and cause audio clicks and interruptions, so I resorted to just not having sleep going at all. Power management and speedstep always worked fine so it wasn't a huge deal for me. Now the computer is sleeping on it's own, despite me having it set not to, audio preferences are not sticking and some audio devices (like HDMI audio) just disappear for me. So I'm guessing that maybe my issues can be resolved with deleting some power mangagement plists prefs and maybe seeing if that stops the computer from sleeping. Does anyone know what .plists specifically dictate the sleep preferences?
