    DELL Vostro / APIC CPU Fan fun

    Hi everyone, I am just trying to get an older DELL into life as a hackintosh. I am most of the way there, I have tried with both the 10.7 [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] / [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]: http://tonymacx86.bl...x-107-lion.html http://tonymacx86.bl...lion-using.html As well as a 10.6 with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Legacy, the install is great (one minor Video driver issue, which I can fix once all is up and running :-p). The problem, there is some issue with the IntelCPUPowerManagement, (NB: from memory here, I may have typed this wrong!!!), I am happy to try and capture logs etc, the problem is simple the CPU fan after [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], once the OS starts up shuts down :-(!!! On a laptop this is always bad, as quickly the CPU will go into the protective thermal shutdown mode!!! This is a Vostro 1200: http://asia.cnet.com...cs-42496180.htm With 64bit Linux I had a few issues with APIC on these monsters, and I can not remember what flags I discovered to make it work, so with a blower / fan on / under the CPU all is happy, is there any software /boot flags / etc (I have googled without success so far) to set the fan on fn=3 on the boot flags seems to work well, is there the .plist equivalent to this? Kind Regards, Gun
