  1. Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, the page isn't found on osx86, and the video is gone. However, I found this thread on applelife.ru, which I think is it - I'll give it a shot! If I understood correctly, it doesn't have a GUI/theme like Clover? I would like that, it seems like the default animated theme is stalling Clover sometimes.
  2. Genius!! Thank you, that worked. I should have asked... 20 hours...ago. It just booted, I'm on my desktop, and it looks like I have graphics acceleration working... Wow. I disabled all of the DSDT fixes & dropped the OEM tables (which have errors and unknown opcodes), and it's... Working. Thanks!
  3. Hi, I used Chameleon (the latest version) to install retail Mavericks to my 320GB WD Passport Essential external hard drive (from 2008, FWIW). Unfortunately, Chameleon won't show the hard drive no matter what I do (tried various BIOS settings and USB ports). There's one HFS+ partition on the drive with Mavericks, GUID table. Using VMWare, I can boot into it fine, so I know that the install is OK at least. Clover sees the drive fine, but even with a manually fixed DSDT (no errors with latest Intel compiler), I get "Unable to find driver for this platform ... ACPI". All extra devices have been unplugged and or disabled. The system is a Dell XPS 420 with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, Intel X38 chipset. The fact that Chameleon boots the installer just fine makes me think that it would work if I could get this one issue sorted. Any help would be much appreciated!
  4. Thanks, that makes sense. I think I found the problem - I was looking in the wrong place. Not only was the original length wrong, but ***NotFixed and ***Fixed cannot be mixed. I guess I should have figured that out sooner... Now my question is, which should I choose - both unfixed, or both fixed? EDIT: I think I was wrong; I look around a bit, and other blocks are mixing them. But when they do, they set the length to 0x00000000 So setting Length to this, without changing ---NotFixed/---Fixed, seems to be a good solution. No errors.
  5. Hi, I'm working on my DSDT file - fixing errors reported by the latest version of iASL - and I've come across an error I can't seem to fix: ../origin/DSDT_manual_edit.dsl 2525: 0x00004000, Error 6043 - ^ Invalid combination of Length and Min/Max fixed flags Here is the problematic section: DWordMemory (ResourceProducer, PosDecode, MinNotFixed, MaxFixed, NonCacheable, ReadWrite, 0x00000000, // Granularity 0xFF97C000, // Range Minimum 0xFF97FFFF, // Range Maximum 0x00000000, // Translation Offset 0x00004000, // Length This is with my calculated Length value, which should be correct - I did Range Max - Range Min + 1 == 0x4000. But It doesn't seem to work; I still get the error. Any help would be much appreciated. DSDT is attached. DSDT_manual_edit.zip
  6. Thanks for the reply. Is this what you meant? DSDT disass+compile: newest iASLme / IASL His error is different from mine, but I think I have those too. Thanks for the help, I'll try replacing the E with an F.
  7. Hi, I'm going through the vanilla (read: extracted) DSDT for my Dell XPS 420, fixing errors raised by iASL. Not sure how to properly fix this one: Error 6051 - ^ Address Min is greater than Address Max The offending section: DWordMemory (ResourceProducer, PosDecode, MinNotFixed, MaxFixed, NonCacheable, ReadWrite, 0x00000000, // Granularity 0xF0000000, // Range Minimum (Min is greater than Max!) 0xEFFFFFFF, // Range Maximum 0x00000000, // Translation Offset 0x00000000, // Length ,, , AddressRangeMemory, TypeStatic) If I just lower Range Minimum, will I break something else? Thanks in advance for any help!
