CASE ANTEC, mini Skeletron CASE LC12 CASE!! apex 2: BASE SETUP AND BIOS (PCB00,01 and 03) IN BIOS NECESSARY SETUP ARE: -disable com ports controllers -disable MAXCPUID in the CPU section -ENABLE AHCI on SATA MCP section -GPU: You can force GPU to overclock to 144% by changing: iGPU OverClock Mode = Manual iGPU OverClock = 650 Shader OverClock = 1500 -you can raise vram for GPU to 512 -Setup power mgm to S1+S3 -lan: don't switch lan setup in bios to MII because MAC won't catch DHCP. leave it as is (from D-E to above) Advanced BIOS Features: >CPU Feature: C1E Function [Enabled] Virtualization Technology [Enabled] Virus Warning [Enabled] CPU L3 Cache [CPU Related] APIC Mode [Enabled] Advanced Chipset Features: On Board GPU [always Enable] iGPU FrameBuffer Control [manual] Frame Buffer Size [512M] iGPU clock [Auto] Integrated Peripherals: >MPC Storage Config: SATA Operation Mode [AHCI] >Hardware Monitor: (Optional) CPU SmartFan Control [Disabled] CPU Fan Control [50%] >MCP Superio Config On Chip Serial Port [Disabled] MAC Lan [Disabled] Machine MAC(NV) Address [Disabled] Onboard Serial Port 1 [Disabled] >USB Device Setting: USB Operation Mode [High Speed] Power Management Setup: ACPI Suspend Type [s3(STR)] HOW_TO_START? the basic RULES FOR always deploy It's important to have a retail base OS with 10.5.6 or 10.6.2 The easier way is to take the HDD you want to deploy and plug it into a good&running OS. Verify that the volume is OS Journaled.. that has the Permissions DB started (if not.. write in terminal: vsdbutil -a /Volumes/drive) remember to repair permissions every time you change a kext in E/E or in S/L/E remember that if you partition a disk with diskutils, the default for a not formatted disk id a GUID partiton scheme..so attention to change in MBR partition scheme if you really like it.. or if you want to have an easy dual boot! At the end of the setup choose EFIv9 or Chameleon 1.0.12.. 2.0 BUT .. REMEMBER that Chamaleon run well from 2.0 RC3 to above.. or ASERE BLN Boot Manager!!! the advantages to use Cham2.0 are these: -the setup.pkg write correctly the mbr.. I did that operation manually 10+ times.. but often the partition with vista won't start anymore. boh. also correcting the bcd store.. or fixing boot, or launching original vista dvd to start a recovery.. the dvd say that vista does not exist! so weird. then.. erasing mbr (not fixing.. really erasing with 00000000 in hex edit) and launching the tool .. vista works fine. so that my suggest is to use the Chameleon 2 pkg and not to fdisk manually the boot1h into mbr. -the setup also create Extra folder and Extra/Extensions.. and create the tool that create itself the Extra/Extensions.mkext -the Extra/Extensions.mkext must be deleted.. we create it at the end of the setup but it's not necessary. It only boost the boot process for the chemeleon kext override.. so useful!!! -the NEWER Chamaleon 2.0 RC5 REALLY INJECT VIDEO ENABLER and in the DDR3 ZOTAC is no more necessary to inject VIDEO DATA in EFI or DSDT!!! simply vanilla and a flag in the c.a.b.p. ok. we've 10.5.6 and a good bootloader.. then??? 1) Copy Appledecrypter.kext in E/E 2) Copy Disabler.kext or HMiller's zip IntelCPUPMDisabler.kext in E/E 3) Copy OpenHaltRestart.kext in E/E (for me is good. is correct sometimes problem when the shutdown has been completed but the cpu fan is still running.. and sleep is working fine! (but usb not.. see below voodoousbehci) THEN if you don't have Extra/update.sh.. it's not important: REPLACE xxxxx with your Volume name mv /Volumes/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/Leopard/Extra/Extensions.mkext.previous chmod -R 644 /Volumes/Extra/Extensions chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/Extra/xtensions kextcache -a i386 -m /Volumes/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/Extra/Extensions > update.log 2>&1 chmod 644 /Volumes/Extra/Extensions.mkext chown root:wheel /Volumes/Extra/Extensions.mkext it helps a lot.. because it correct E/E permissions kexts.. you can delete mkext or not.. as you wish DSDT: SEE BELOW PHASE 4 3: KEXT MOD Phase1.. HMiller study (for each mod kext.. do a Duplicate file..and rename to .kextorig to leave a backdoor Ok??) DSMOS: Is the same as Don't steal osx kext in 10.5.6.. Hmiller.. confirm? I think is not necessary to use it. Intelcpupmdisabler: see chapter 2. IOATAFamily: HMiller rev 1.7.3f1 // 10.5.6 rev 2.0.0 Hmiller solution is the extension that consist of adding into Content/Plugins -AppleGenericPCATA -AppleONBoardPCATA but has also mod into important AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext.. the mods are injecting into Plist Array Information about ATA ICH6 to ICH9-R.. a lot of matching data for almost all mobo! I started fine without mods.. but I'll try to use the recent 10.5.6 IOATA ver 1.1 mod proposed by -DuNe- Then.. is it necessary? maybe yes.. maybe no. Most people tell in the past that with a mod driver they have proper detection into System Profiler.. so.. why not? Thanks to HMiller.. but use 10.5.6 1.1 ioata if you'd like to fit last retail. MY ADD INTO Plugins folder: NforceATA.kext.. it add 3 array: NForce ATA Driver,NForce SATA Driver,NForce PATA Driver.. same considerations.. JMICRONATA: HMiller rev. 1.0.0 .. the same as 10.5.6 HMiller suggestion is to change the plist for the matching pci device.. under JMicronATA PCI before: <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</<wbr>key> <string>0x2368197b</string>[/<wbr>code] after: [code]<key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</<wbr>key> <string>0x2368197b 0x2360197b&0xfff0ffff</<wbr>string> newer jmicronata from darwin project contain support for JMB360.. my test will take that version that contain that matching: <string>0x2360197b, 0x2361197b 0x2363197b 0x2365197b 0x2366197b 0x2368197b</string> BREAK AND THINKING: but IOATA and JmicronATA have the same scope. then.. if I boot fine.. without mods.. and known that mobo use Jmicron controller.. then why do a lot of mod on IOATA? the problem is that until I can't see anything in Sys Profiler.. I cant be sure. the solution is to use lspci for mac or read all the IOREG -lw0 dump. IOAHCIFAMILY:: HMiller rev: 1.0.4.. 10.5.6 rev 1.5.0.. it's quite different mods suggested by hmiller: is the problem os sata drive orange and other similar .. that Chameleon override with it's injector by the setup itself. Then.. we can use it or do the mod. into PLUGINS folder under the IOAHCIBlockstorage.. info.plist.. in the section AppleAHCIDiskDriver.. has the mod below under the row: <string>IOAHCIDevice</<wbr>string> put the rows: [CODE]<key>Physical Interconnect</key> <string>SATA</string> <key>Physical Interconnect Location</key> <string>Internal</string> <key>Protocol Characteristics</key> <dict> <wbr> <key>Physical Interconnect</key> <wbr> <string>SATA</string> <wbr> <key>Physical Interconnect Location</key> <wbr> <string>Internal</string> </dict>[/CODE] APPLEACPIPLATFORM: HMiller rev. 1.2.1 .. 10.5.6 rev 1.2.4.. then I'll try to test mods.. but into newer kext! the suggestions: THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT I THINK IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DRIVER OF OSX. but I can't see what are the mods.. APPLESMBIOS: HMiller rev 1.0.14.. 10.5.6 rev 1.1.1. Hmiller kext does not contain trace of a building or mem speed or something similar.. what's it? THIS IS THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT: Andy Vandichk or Fassl propose to build own smbios (the -27, -28 or -33 SRC available on that forum) but the goal is to inject in mac info about mem speed, type and mac model and serial.. but This mod is very deep and change the boot process.. so a model that is imac and not macbookair I see that produce different behaviour and different answer in the boot. In the Asus MCP79 if I change it, I have a Kernel Panic and It stops wit an error about the HPET.. ok.. this is the last change I'll try.. BUT HMiller one is different. MY SUGGESTION APPLEAHCIPORT.kext: it must contain MCP79 ahci info. 10.5.6 is still containing a part of it.. it has 0x0ab910de.. but not 0x0ab810de [CODE] <key>MCP79AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.<wbr>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>MCP79 AHCI</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleMCP79AHCI</<wbr>string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string><b><font color="#ff0000">0x0ab910de</font></b></string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>NVidia</string> </dict>[/CODE] then.. I did a copypaste of the array to preserve that array.. I renamed the above string with a B at the end of all the stringsand added newer antry with proper ID: [CODE]<key>MCP79AHCIB</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.<wbr>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>MCP79 AHCI b</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleMCP79AHCIb</<wbr>string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x0ab910de</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>NVidia</string> </dict> <key>MCP79AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.<wbr>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>MCP79 AHCI</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleMCP79AHCI</<wbr>string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x0ab810de</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>NVidia</string> </dict>[/CODE] 4: THE TEST Boot into my usb pen esata is very fast. 8-10sec in '-v' flag. VIDEO: Changing the ID (with device id 0xcb7910de and 0x086c10de) give me a black screen ...the log say: NVDANV50HAL loaded and registered. IGPU: family specific matching fails and now to continue tests I put nvkush into S/L/E START IS OK, VIDEO IS OK, with QE/CI SMBIOS: HMiller SMBios return a smbios-28 667ram speed.. I'm searching for a 800speed and I've put that one. (I got it from Ideneb or IPC dvd's.. and it's good!!) AppleAHCIport: Now IOREG return 0x0ab810de on the MCP79 entry. VOODOOPOWER.kext. It's really important bacause it reenable cputhrottle and managing of HPET/Cpu power. You can take it here. ATA PUT Jmicron mod and IOATAmod.. no readable changes or improvements. The fact: In vista i see the same: No presence of Jmicron controller.. instead of Asus MCP79a which has a pig-feet into the past.. a Jmicron IDE ATA Controller. but it's a micro atx.. heh. Then I left JmicronATA and IOATA original. .. here there are no ata! and no pci! USB VIA WIFI: is not easy to find driver. actually I read that page.. that for me is clear: I have to mov on another card. and then (if I want) open the usb newer card and solde it's terminal to one of the free internal usb expansions. Ok. focus on system profiler crashes. It report a division by zero error. SOLUTION: thanks to ISOTOME set into BIOS disable MAXCPU (Update top toipic chapter 2) AUDIO: Got VoodoooHDA (now rev. 8) built.. put into S/L/E. Put also HDAEnabler. Renamed original AppleHDA.kext but the sound is not clear. no mic working. 5. CONCLUSIONS ON LEO SETUP with 3 kexts in E/E , 2 drivers in S/L/E (nvkush, voodoopower) and at least 2 mods into S/L/E (smbios, appleahciport) that mobo is able to run perfectly! OK LETS TALK ABOUT SNOW 6. SNOW READY!!!! the Zotac seemz to run with snow thanks to all members.. see starting page 3 of this topic. REMEMBER that 10.6.6 is very very stable and all the official kext are not bad for the zotac.. so UPGRADE to 10.6.6 BIOS setting : in CPU Feature: Virtualization Technology (enabled) Advanced Chipset Features: On Board GPU (always Enable) iGPU FrameBuffer Control (manual) Frame Buffer Size (512M) iGPU clock (Auto) Integrated Peripherals: MPC Storage Config: SATA Operation Mode (AHCI) MPC Storage Config: SATA Operation Mode (AHCI) Hardware Monitor: (Optional) CPU SmartFan Control (Disabled) CPU Fan Control (75%) MCP Superio Config On Chip Serial Port (Disabled) MAC Lan (Disabled) Machine MAC(NV) Address (disabled) Onboard Serial Port 1 (disabled) USB Device Setting: USB Operation Mode (Full/Low Speed) Power Management Setup: ACPI Suspend Type (S3(STR)) THANKS TO SCRAX GAANSAN MINIHACK WE'VE A PERFECT STABLE OS 2 SOLUTIONS: 1: GAANSAN (10.6.2- 10.6.5) the attachment with all the needs is here http://rapidshare.co...ac_9300_ITX.zip 2: SCRAX (10.6.2--> 10.6.6) with imac 9.1 emulation starting from this post there were more improvements and now we've a simple SNOW SETUP so hereand here 709 simply open the ZIP put in E/E FAKESMC ZEVOREBOOT DSDT and in /EXTRA c.a.b.p. 7. LION before talking about the setup, it's important to write some words about it 1) LION comes with a lot of check and not only in the OSINStall.mpkg, so the SETUP CANNOT BE LAUNCHED from a SNOW or LEO environment IF the hardware is NOT a real MAC 2) The SETUP also WANTs a 64bit processor, and a GPT partition scheme IN THE DESTINATION DISK 3) The 2nd point is not telling that you cannot work in MBR.. because after a setup you can CLONE the final disk into another which has an MBR partition scheme .. and then run it! 4) except for the other 3D in the insanelymac forum (and other forums ..yes!) that are tring to insanely run chamaleon with a debugger release.. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE to run the LION with a classic bootloader.. YOU MUST HAVE AN EFI BOOT MANAGEMENT 5) the 4th point tell that the EFI boot is everything you want to use (a partition, an usb pen) with at least 100mb FAT32.. so with it you can then start LION automatically Gaansan spent 2 weeks to make the Zotac Roarr with Lion.. because it's normally to think that If Zotac run fine in Snow.. It fit Lion too! So the brain comsumption was not really balanced between the technics and the environments.. I mean: the damned EFI boot method had taken a lot of time only to have a stable and emphyric method that MADE the SETUP STARTS! In the world a plenty of hack-addicted has the same problem.. XPC, ###### 1,2.. 1.3..1.4... who can boots fine with one.. and who can boots with other.. bla bla bla.. THIS GUIDE is obviously NOT the ONLY ONE METHOD.. but you have to accept that earlier ###### Release have better response.. This is really true 'cos if you try to use the basic ###### beta2 to boot a Snow.. it is as slow as lion! I Verified GAANSAN RECIPE.. effectively ###### 1.4 start over the 1st Driver loading.. even others NOT. To go LION BETA 1 ON ZOTAC GEFORCE 9300 WITH DDR2 TAKE THOSE 2 Attachments: I POST the PDF GUIDE, because is very long and rich of PHOTOES! And I POST the PACKAGE THE PDF IS ALSO HERE IN THE ATTACHMENT BELOW 8) BIOS MODS -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- GUIDE TO IDENTIFY OUR PCB VERSION According to an updated Zotac 9300 ITX manual, available at http://downloads.zot...;/man/pa105.pdf, there is a revision of the Zotac 9300 ITX motherboard, PCB version 03. The new features are 3 SATA connectors (against 2 in versions 00 and 01, they seem to have skipped verison 02), and an USB power select jumper, which allows wake up on USB. Also, PCB version 3 supports dual link DVI with resolutions up to 2560x1600 (against single link DVI with resolutions up to 1920x1440 in versions 00 and 01). The bottom side of the version 03 MB should be labelled as 236-DA105-xx30F. BUT -> seeing that http://www.zotacusa....after-s3-sleep/ I prefer to adopt this method: GF9300 (DDR3), 3SATA SKU : GF9300-K GF9300 (PCB-03/04), 3SATA, Dual Link DVI, Overclock version SKU : GF9300-I GF9300 (PCB-03/04), 3 SATA, Dual Link DVI, Standard Clock SKU : GF9300-G/-J GF9300 (PCB -01), 2 SATA, Single Link DVI SKU : GF9300-E/-F -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MOTIVATIONS Starting from K-E because it's mine actually mobo, I decided to do the matrix revolution.. the goal is to have a bios with: DMI strings APPLE (yes, and it can fit with product number for a Lion setup) SPLASH LOGO Apple DSDT replaced BIOS Setup defaults just ready to go due to limitations on those bios.. the FA object in the BIOS (the sound startup effect) is not possible.. because ZOTAC never has it.. sorry -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ADVANTAGES After applying a BIOS MOD, you can -erase DSDT -erase Smbios.plist -Erase the entry in c.a.b.p called graphicsenabler=yes -erase ALL kexts in extra folder -Erase all not congruent mac release kexts in S/L/E (I mean if you have 10.6.6 you must leave all kexts original 10.6.6!!!) except for the patched AppleHDA because it has HEX 662 patched in the EXEcutable! that patched file is in 710# by @scrax that's it!! !!! Warning & Disaster recovery !!! Il supporto Zotac invita , prima di flashare bios, a [b][u]disabilitare[/u][/b] il controllo dello SmartFan della cpu. ZOTAC Support RECOMMEND TO [u][b]disable [/b][/u]SmartFan Contro BEFORE upgrading a BIOS!!! Link to original last BIOS (PCB 00, 01)2K100126 Link to original last BIOS (PCB 03 and next)2K100422 WARNING:ALL THE PCBs doesn't have a BIS Backup method as asus..The CTRL+HOME with a USBpen or with a USB Floppy (that's AMI typical procedure) doesn't RUN. The PCB hasn't a SPI programmer connector! SO: IF YOU'RE IN TROUBLE WITH A DAMN FLASHING, DON'T WORRY, I'VE PERSONALLY BUILT AND TESTED THISCIRCUIT that can flash correctly! This need: -a floppy (create with XP with format and make MDSOD boot), put the rom, afudos or awdflash, put autoexec.bat with: Afudos.exe /iYOURROM.rom /pbnc /n -an usb boot pen fat32 (use hp utility), put the rom, autoexec, Afudos or awdflash AFUDOS in attached FOR 00:01:03 PCB AWDFLASH in attached FOR K-E PCB -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NEW BIOS LIST K-E: the dsdt is the same.. the original chip mounted is a DIL-8 Serial EEprom Winbond 25Q80 DSDT USED in ATTACHED, BIOS IN ATTACHED MODS applied: Logo,Bios setup (load optimal),DMI strings,DSDT the UPDATE METHOD recommends is wrotten above.. Use A Floppy USB, or USB pen, with AFUDOS, the newrom, autoexec.bat: Afudos.exe /ike.rom /pbnc /n G-E and I-E and J-E: the Bios is marked from Zotac as 03! the original chip mounted is a DIL-8 Serial EEprom Winbond 25x80 DSDT USED in ATTACHED, BIOS IN ATTACHED MODS applied: Logo,Bios setup (load optimal),DSDT DMI ready..but smbios.plist is recommended the UPDATE METHOD recommends is wrotten above..

MOUNTAIN LION Here I am I decided to rebuild a case with KE DDR3 mobo So I had headache for a while seeing that I never had a screen in ML (10.0 to 10.8.2) , always black screen. I tested all I can.. but all injectors (ATY_init, nvenabler,nvresolver) never run I used my BIOSMOD, but yes I tested the NVDA,Parent dsdt mod -> NO LUCK I'm QE/CI with NATIT and OVerrideNVDA and LATEST 304.00.05f02 Web Release Invidia drivers Here http://www.nvidia.co...f02-driver.html Obviously to run it you've to use Pacifist or use a temporary smbios.plist with Macpro5,1 after, diskutils repairPermissions / you can use SMBIOS 11,2 (in attached) CUDA 5 doesn't matter Org.chameleon.boot.plist as I attach BUT CREATE A PROPER UUID (otherwise no appstore/itunes/iclud) ATTENTION: the bootloader 2050,2060,2064 are good bot for me only 2064 make me sleep (me? ?!) Don't USE DSDT if you're BIOSMOD In S/L/E I have a AppleGraphicsPowermanagement modded for 9300 internal Actually NO AppleHDA workind.. Use VoodooHda GO TO #795 to grab my latest! that's all.. dude!
