Netkas,

 

Heads up. USB ports on front panel aren't waking up for some people like myself.

 

Anyone else experiencing this?

 

Thanks,

Hey people, a little help here...

I've changed manually the boot file in usr|standalone|i386 with the EFI9 boot file, everything is working here, just like the old efi8 boot file... my method is right?

I can't remember how to install the pcefi, long time using the efi8 and i forget how to make it...

EHCI ports are fine, UHCI ports will not wake up. So my usb audio devices won't play nicely. I believe these are devices that run in USB 2.0 only.

Hi, this is my report.

If go to Deep Sleep (hibernate mode 3), then wake up normally , but when I shut down the system I get a Kernel Panic an AppleHDA audio.

Reboot works fine after go to hibernate, but shut down not.

 

I'm using DSDT.aml override(WinXP Option) and Vanilla ACPIPlatform 1.2.1 and OpenHaltRestart.kext

If I use DSDT.aml (Darwin option) at wake up lost USB Keyboard.

when it asks you which system to overide you must choose XP?

cause i choosed OSX, if i choose XP it will copy my settings from there? (that are correct)

or it will destroy the XP partition?

i just wonder why pcefi says hibernate error at boot

I think the BIOS item you are referencing is called 'EHCI Handoff' - not sure if your DFI Lanparty board has a similar option in BIOS?

 

Intel mention it in section 5.1 of the following link on page 121 -

Click here for link to Intel PDF

 

also this message seems relevant -

USB EHCI Handoff Boot delay issue

 

I vaguely remember that there may be better USB driver kexts out there or you can add your specific chipset device IDs to an info.plist or something?

Finally all is working fine.

I,ve installed boot(PCEFIv9) with Chameleon for HD installer(replacing the boot file)

I use DSDT.aml file, choosed 0Darwin while compiling with -newHPET option.

Set Hibernate mode to 3

$ sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 3

I'm using AppleACPIPlatform version 1.0.3 in my /Extra/Extensions

 

No more AppleHDAudio kernel panic in Shutdown after wakeup.

USB OK after wakeup.

 

Now I´ll try differents options, like AppleACPIplatform 1.2.1 and Hibernate mode 3.

Ditto on the sleep image garbage...

 

CPUintel is loading with my dsdt.aml, but when I go to deep sleep, everything powers down as before, but will not fast wake to desktop when power is cut (Deep sleep)...

 

Added kexts

AppleHDA.kext

openhaltrestart1.0.3.kext

applesmbiosefi.kext

 

Using EFI strings for video / audio / network

I'm having a small problem but don't know if it's a real problem...

During boot Darwin says I have a 14mb VESA3.0 video card (NVIDIA) (it's a 256mb geforce 8400gs)

I had this problem since my 7300gs died last month and now my new 8400 is detected that way.

Using OSX is possible but it's really slow after a while (my old 7300 felt much much much faster), I'm using EFI string and in system profile it says the correct amount of video ram.

 

Any tip would be really appreciated.....

I dont recognized any improvements between PCEFI and Chameleon ... using Chameleon right now.

Major new feature of V9: with your chameleon version (today version) you cant use Snow Leopard!!!

Today you will not need that, but 1Q/2Q 2009 you need an new chameleon or this V9 to let it Snowing on your PC!

@eMatoS -- You're fine. don't worry about it.

 

It is a longshot but that's the only thing that changed in my system since I switched my video cars and it's very slow now, compared to the 7300 and it shouldn't be.

Thanks kramer2k for the answer.

EFIV9 built on chameleon code. hopefully its src relased soon. never know where next great developer will come from and what bit of code sends them to the top.
