SOLVED - SATA/AHCI woes with Intel S5000XVN (Xeon) MB - Anybody?

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Edit (8/11/09):Please go here for a discussion of all S5000XVN issues under Snow Leopard.

 

Edit (6/11/09): Thanks to 29.Diego's post suggestion, this issue is now SOLVED!!! It was indeed a question of interrupt conflicts, and freeing up the PIC IRQ at 2 did the trick! Thanks to 29.Diego for pointing me in the right direction, and theKING et al. at projectosx who figured this out. Details HERE. :whistle:

 

 

Hi Everyone,

 

I have got this odd problem, and am wondering if anybody has any ideas of what might be causing it.

 

Problem: BOTH AHCI & IDE SATA settings do not work - no internal SATA drives are recognised. Drive only recognised under IDE (!)

 

System: Intel S5000XVN Board with 5000X chipset (ESB 2) - MacPro2,1 clone. Chameleon 2 RC3 + EFI 10.3. OSX 10.6 Retail with Vanilla kernel. Bootloader kexts (Extra/Extensions):

 

AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
PlatformUUID.kext
AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext
VoodooPS2Controller.kext
NullCPUPowerManagement.kext	fakesmc.kext
OpenHaltRestart.kext
(*AHCIPortInjector.kext)
(*IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext)
 (*) - tried with/without

 

Symptoms: Basically, AppleAHCIPort.kext and IOAHCIFamily.kext load BUT IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext does not load. Use of injectors does not matter. Using Leo 10.5.6 kexts of the same does not matter.

 

However: AppleAHCIPort.kext and IOAHCIFamily.kext cannot be unloaded after boot, while IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext can be loaded and unloaded after boot but does not load during boot. Loading IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext after boot has no effect.

 

 

Question: Is this a problem with the injector, or the boot loader itself? Or is there some kind of BIOS problem. Device IDs all match up. Permissions appear fine. Any ideas and input most welcome.

 

* The only thing I noticed is that according to the AppleAHCI load info, the kext does NOT match the 'ESB 2' personality - even though the device ids are there in ioreg.

 

(kernel) Kext com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort registered class

(kernel) Kext com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort is now started.
(kernel) Kext com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort sending 6 personalities 
to the IOCatalogue and starting matching.

 

 

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.

 

Best

This has been covered in at least two other threads on this forum. Use Google and do some searching. You need a copy of AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext patched for Snow Leopard. The one I use is discussed at

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1246108

 

 

Hi BladeRunner,

 

Thanks for your reply. I have been using the patched AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext - but to no avail - SATA drives simply do not show on IDE SATA or AHCI SATA. Under IOREG, the SATA channel IDE1@1F,2, as it is called, remains empty. I suspect a BIOS bug or some kind of initialisation error. Perhaps a diff of the PIIATA will help. AHCI sources are unfortunately not available. I also did a diff of the IOPCI but did not at first sight see anything unusual. The next step might be running a full debug version of the PII kext, to see if it throws any errors. I shall keep at it. If anything else comes to mind, please post.

 

Cheers

You do know there is more than one version of that kext out there. The first one I tried didn't help me either. Then I found the one I pointed you to. It has more ICH/IDE entries in it and resolved my problem.

 

Hope you find a solution for your problem.

Hi. I have a Dell Precision 490. I havn't created a guide yet but this is what I did.

 

I restored the Retail Snow DVD to a Hard Disk or USB.

 

I them grabbed the IntelPIXATA kext and had changed the secondary IDE channel from IDE to PATA in the Info.plist

 

I them booted from my USB boot drive with chameleon on it and only

dsmos.kext, NUllCPUPowermanagement and OpenHaltRestart. add the PIXATA to this boot for now.

 

You should be able to boot up the Retail DVD into single user mode.

run fsck -yf, mounjt the disk mnt -uw /

 

delete the IOATAFamily.kext from System/Library/Extentions

 

it's critical to rebuild the caches with

 

kextcache -v1 -t -m System/Library/Extensions System/Library/Extensions.mkext (I removed any references reported by kextcache where IOATA linking failed. You loose Jmicron and PCCard Kext. they won't matter.

 

now reboot and remove the IntelPIXATA from your boot disk. This should allow you to get past the PIXATAIssues and boot into retail install. After retail install you'll need to do this procedure again to remove the IOATAFamily stuff from your installed drive.

 

BTW you'll loose IDE Abilities but will have native AHCI at least I do on my 5000X chipset. There are USB DVD's cheap now that'll work.

 

The instructions above are pretty close to the actual commands "from memory" I'll do a install doc eventually. the switch -v1 might not be required. Took me about a week to figure this out...lol

 

I hope this helps.

Hi. I have a Dell Precision 490. I havn't created a guide yet but this is what I did.

Hi guys,

Progress report: I found BladeRunner's updated AppleIntelPII kext. But unfortunately it did not work for me... : ( .

 

I also tried jonnysab's excellent idea, but again, on my system it was a no go... : ( When I delete the IOATA Family kext and the AppleIntelPII kext, I loose IDE but AHCI does not automatically kick in. This seems an idiosyncrasy of my board.

 

I have been looking at the DSDT code for the IDE1 device that handles AHCI on my board and it is identical (except for board address) to the code for the IDE0 device - and I think this is where Snow is getting confused... I have been playing with the DSDT SATA patch, and I will also try to inject the SATA port through either the ATAInject or AppleIntelPII kexts. I shall keep you all posted.

 

PS> I m attaching a a copy of the IDE0/1 section of the DSDT file. jonnysab if you get a moment could you have a look, or if you could send me a copy of the dell's dsdt.dsl, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

 

Best.

I have tried unsuccessful a lot of kext in this days but nothing seems to work.

Have tryed to install from leopard 10.5.8 full working... and i can get only "still waiting for root device".

 

ON LEOPARD, when same issue is coming i have forced the root device from the bootloader, and then on the system installed charmelion. But seems we have no way to see the HD so to force the rd...

...and then?

 

USB disk are correctly recognised by the installer... maybe we can use the dongle usb port in our board to have an ""internal usb"" device.

 

 

@jonnysab - i can boot the retail DVD with -s and i think any of us can do it but after can you explain better your method to get into snow?

 

 

@danicavini - I use an external usb device for audio, so never tested if the internal one is working are you on leopard or snow? Because if you are in snow say us how you have reach it!

 

 

@all - open to collaborate to get this system working.

In Single user mode (I had to use a modified PIXATA kext to get to Single User Mode) I changed Parallel ATA to use Serial ATA in the PIXATA kext Info.plist you can download anywhere.

Remove the IOATAFamily.kext driver from the Retail DVD

rm -f -R /System/Library/Extension/IOATAFamily.kext

You might as well remove the ACard6280ATA.kext and the JMicronATA.kext while your at it.

Once this is done you need to rebuild your caches.

(Before Retail Installation)

kextcache -v 1 -t -m /System/Library/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions

(After Installation of Snow Leopard)

kextcache -v 1 -t -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions

Remove PIXATA after each single user mode Operation Above.

 

This is how I removed IOATAFamily and got Dell Precision 490 to be Retail Installed 10.6

Another progress report,

 

Hi all,

 

jonnysab - thanks for the details!

 

Noooo. On my board (stock Intel S5000XVN) this approach does not work. ;)

 

But what I have noticed is that, when in the system BIOS, I use legacy SATA settings, then I can get 2 or 4 SATA drives (depending on whether I want to have a PATA drive) listed under the usual IDE tree as SATA drives. So as with jonnysab, if I m willing to sacrifice the CD drive, then I can get snow (as I have 4 HDD in there at the moment.)

 

 

Under 10.5.6, SATA AHCI is recognised BUT it still is not part of the ACPI plane. I figured out that this board uses the ACPI 3.0a specification, and have been trying to code in some AHCI ports using the DSDT override of Chameleon - but still no luck. Part of the difficulty is having access to working samples, and figuring out what to say to the BIOS - i.e sending the drives initialise commands, knowing the format of the data returned etc... Not even sure if this is the right approach.

 

But if anyone has access to a dsdt.dsl from a MacPro running snow, that would be greatly appreciated.

 

Best.

Any news?

 

Hi, I have tried the obvious things such as setting up the MacPro 3,1 code - which is actually really simple - it just sets up the variables ('registers'?) I think. But I have been very busy since then. I now plan to look at the controller specs as well, and perhaps at the changes in the IOPCI family. Probably would be helpful to consult the PII controller code as well - especially the SATA handling aspects. I m hoping it is a simple matter of injecting a few things but lets see...

Hi Everbody,

 

I have been playing with the AppleIntelPIIXATA kext, and it appears that the problem with enhanced SATA is coming from an interrupt issue. The driver can read the hardware registers, but driver initialisation fails here:

 

AppleIntelPIIXATAChannel.cpp > AppleIntelPIIXATAChannel::init

(185,186)
if ( !setupInterrupt( provider, _irq ) )
	{IOLog("%s::[%p]:: setupInterrupt failed.\n", getName(), this);return false;}

 

The IOLog Entry is mine...

 

The Interrupt Vector is 20 (decimal), 0x14h - this vector assignment works in 10.5.6 but apparently NOT in Snow Leo.

I will keep investigating.

 

 

Edit:

A littler later...

 

AppleIntelPIIXATAChannel.cpp > AppleIntelPIIXATAChannel::setupInterrupt

IOReturn ret = provider->callPlatformFunction( "SetDeviceInterrupts",
			   /* waitForFunction */ false,
			   /* nub			 */ this,
			   /* vectors		 */ (void *) &line,
			   /* vectorCount	 */ (void *) 1,
			   /* exclusive	   */ (void *) false ); /* XXX */

//orByte
const char * result;
switch (ret) {
	case kIOReturnNoInterrupt:
		result = "kIOReturnNoInterrupt";  // no interrupt attached
		break;
			 ...
   }
	IOLog("%s::[%p]:: set-up Interrupt Returns - %s.\n",getName(), this, result);

 

Does indeed confirm that the interrupt assignment is not working. Forcing the function to return 'true' leads to:

 

AppleIntelICHxSATA::start
AppleIntelICHxSATAPolledAdapter::setOwner
AppleIntelICHxSATA::scanForDrives
AppleIntelICHxSATA: interrupt registration error
AppleIntelICHxSATA::start
AppleIntelICHxSATAPolledAdapter::setOwner
AppleIntelICHxSATA::scanForDrives
AppleIntelICHxSATA: interrupt registration error
AppleIntelICHxSATA::start
AppleIntelICHxSATAPolledAdapter::setOwner
AppleIntelICHxSATA::scanForDrives
AppleIntelICHxSATA: interrupt registration error
AppleIntelICHxSATA: interrupt registration error

Anybody know what might have changed between 10.5.6 and 10.6 for interrupt handling that might be causing this error? Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance,

 

Best,

Hi, i have the same Mainboard, Intel S5000XVN. I would like install 10.6 but no idea how. I'm still using 10.5.8.

Where can i get any intrucktions?

 

Thanks

Search the forum for "Snow Installer 1.1"

 

Some Ideas: On Gigabyte board

DJ Nitehawk's installer

 

I did it manually here is a quick guide:

1. Get an 8GB USB stick, format it as GUID, Extended journaled in Disk Utility - single partition

2. Get Chameleon RC3, and install to the usb stick

2a. copy over your dsdt.aml

2b. Snow Installer 1.1 has a good selection of kexts to get started

3. Image the Snow Leo retail install cd and restore to usb stick (without using erase)

4. Boot the usb stick

 

5. You may experience the Native SATA problem discussed here, so I would recommend doing the install to a USB hard drive.

 

Notes: Nitehawk's installer automates 1+2 if I remember correctly and also adds the DSDT+kexts automatically

 

There are a number of good installers out there. If you search the forum for snow leopard, you will probably find some others as well.

 

 

UPDATE ON Native SATA:

I tried re-routing IRQs using the _PRT method for 0x001F i.e., SATA address (a. to look like a 3,1; then b. just deleted the relevant entries) in DSDT but... still no go.

 

The hardware hasn't changed, so it must be something in 10.6 that's doing it...

 

At this point I m stumped... Any ideas guys??

SOLVED - bringing the Sno Leo goodness to S5000XVN!!

 

 

Well, thanks to 29.Diego, and theKING et al. over at projectosx, this issue is now solved. There is also the possibility that Netkas' IRQless HPET kext will work, but I have not tested it yet. The solution here comes from this thread .

 

 

Analysis for S5000XVN: Under 10.5.6 the HPET uses two IRQs. However, under 10.6 the HPET asks for 3 IRQs, consequently moving from 10.5.6 to 10.6 gets the HPET to take the SATA IRQs (0x14, 0x15 or both)- leading to no SATA. By 'giving' HPET 0x02, and 0x08 we free-up the SATA IRQs indirectly. HPET also uses 0x0b on my system - but this causes no problems.

 

 

How to patch your DSDT table.

 

(1) Get DSDT SE from here. Available in English & Spanish.

(2) Click the Extract DSDT button

 

(3)Changes:

 

Locate under entry HPET the following, and if not already present, add the following:

					Name (CRS, ResourceTemplate ()
				{
					// SATA IRQ FIX ADD START
					IRQNoFlags ()
						{0}
					IRQNoFlags ()
						{8}  
					// SATA IRQ FIX ADD STOP					  
					Memory32Fixed (ReadOnly,
						0xFED00000,		 // Address Base
						0x00000400,		 // Address Length
						)
				})

 

Locate under entry PIC the following, and if present, DELETE the following:

					Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate ()
				{
					IO (Decode16,
						0x0020,			 // Range Minimum
						0x0020,			 // Range Maximum
						0x01,			   // Alignment
						0x1E,			   // Length
						)
					IO (Decode16,
						0x00A0,			 // Range Minimum
						0x00A0,			 // Range Maximum
						0x01,			   // Alignment
						0x1E,			   // Length
						)
					IO (Decode16,
						0x04D0,			 // Range Minimum
						0x04D0,			 // Range Maximum
						0x01,			   // Alignment
						0x02,			   // Length
						)
					// SATA IRQ FIX DELETE START
					// make sure to add // as below - this will delete the two lines at compilation
					// IRQNoFlags ()
					//	{2}
					// SATA IRQ FIX DELETE END
				})

 

Locate under entry TMR or TIMR the following, and if present, DELETE the following:

					Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate ()
				{
					IO (Decode16,
						0x0040,			 // Range Minimum
						0x0040,			 // Range Maximum
						0x01,			   // Alignment
						0x04,			   // Length
						)
					IO (Decode16,
						0x0050,			 // Range Minimum
						0x0050,			 // Range Maximum
						0x01,			   // Alignment
						0x04,			   // Length
						)
					// SATA IRQ FIX DELETE START
					// make sure to add // as below - this will delete the two lines at compilation
					//IRQNoFlags ()
					//	{0}
					// SATA IRQ FIX DELETE END
				})

 

(4) In DSDT Editor, click on 'save dsl' save it as dsdt.dsl

(5) In DSDT Editor, click on Tools > Compile

(6) Do

cp /Library/DSDT/DSDT Files/dsdt.aml   <path-to-snow-installation-root>/dsdt.aml

 

That should do it!

 

I am enclosing my dsdt.dsl and dsdt.aml files, you can try these at your own risk. Ideally you would be extracting and updating your own DSDT files as your BIOS and DSDT tables may be different from the ones found in my system.

 

 

FAQs

------------

1. Can I compile the DSDT under 10.5.x? Yes.

2. How can I get SATA recognition with the retail install DVD? Image the install DVD to a USB stick, install Chameleon 2RC3, and copy your custom dsdt.aml the the root directory. Then, when you have completed the installation, copy the dsdt.aml over to the new system as well.

3. How do I image the retail DVD to a USB stick? Buy it. It is very reasonably priced, then do a search for Snow Leopard Installation, and it is discussed there. There are quite a few good guides out there.

4. I am experiencing problem X, Y, Z? Please post to the thread. Thanks.

5. Will you write a detailed Sno Leo installation guide for the S5000XVN? I am afraid that looks unlikely. Other than the SATA issue discussed here, it is quite usual. But perhaps, someone else will.

6. Sound on S5000XVN? This is off topic, but to touch on it, I use a USB sound card. I am not sure about on-board sound.

orByte you are the man!

 

Will report the install on my system when I found an HD.

 

Thanks!!!

 

Cheers, and thanks for the post link! :D

This may have saved my life!  My HP XW6600 Workstation has 5 unusable SATA ports inside (under OSX), but with this DSDT edit, I can get rid of my ASM1061 SATA3 card, and go "legit".

    • Hello Mald0n:

      Nice to meet you, I have created a post about my problem on High Sierra before and I was redirected to this guide by Allan.

      As mentioned in the post, I was not able to get pass the login screen at initial boot and the system could not shutdown occasionally.

      However I solve the high temperature problem when I replace the clover folder you provide on first post, currently the cpu temperature is around 5x-6x'c after 10 mins up time.

      Attached is the clover folder, ioreg as well as the send me app, thanks for your help!

      p.s. I notice that your clover boot efi is a old traditional grey apple boot logo, Is there a version of modern dark and white logo one that I could replace with? Thank you!
