GA-EX58 and GA-X58A DSDT native power management modifications

Recommended Posts

No longer getting any kernel panics...

 

I only get a kernel panic after sleep if I use any of the JMicron ports. Which sucks because I only usually use one of the JMicron ports for my DVD drive. Any way we can fix this? It appears to be caused by IOAHCIFamily.kext

 

Maybe this post http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=186558 can shed some light on the situation.

 

I also cannot boot 64bit kernel with turbo mode enabled, kernel panics when reading p-states.

 

Any idea how to get wake on lan to work? Is that simply an ethernet driver issue?

Can anyone with a working DSDT for GA-X58-UD3R post their dsdt file and configuration so I can compare to mine.

 

I have this working but sleep results in reboot when trying to wake:

 

My config:

 

GA-X58-UD3R version 1.0 with f8D BIOS

10.6.2 64 bit mode

10.5 boot loader by Netkas

GE-Force 8800GS 384MB video card

in Syestem/Library/Extensions/ I have ALC-888 sound via hacked AppleHDA.kext and Lan via RTL1000 snow.

In Extra/Extensions/ I have fakesmc 2.5, IOAHCI orange icon fix, jmicron fix, openhaltsretsart, platformuuid kexts.

removed nullcpupm.kext - no problems booting

 

Thanks.

Does checking the `Start up automatically after a power failure' option in Energy Saver help the sleep reboot (assuming PX40 section of the DSDT fixed to get AppleLPC.kext to load)?

I can't clock higher than 3.7 GHz and turbo without KPs in OS X, and I'm booting 32 bit (x22 is 4.07 GHz).

However, I can clock at 4.1 without turbo and it doesn't KP.

Wake on LAN appears to be a driver feature, and none of the Realtek kexts I've tried enable this feature.

You should be able to boot 32 bit with the following in com.apple.Boot.plist;

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>arch=i386</string>

 

To tell if you were successful (32bit is i386, 64bit is x86_64);

[mac05:~] me% uname -p

i386

[mac05:~] me%

 

Do you get CPULimit 0x0 using demong1's MacPro4_1.plist, or does that happen automatically on GA-P55?

 

Confirmed that yes you do need to use demong1's MacPro4_1.plist to get CPULimit 0x0. As well, IOHWControls value increase from 1 to 3, and IOHWCtrlLoops increase from 1 to 2. Funny thing is though, AppleLPC.kext loads either way.

BIOS F9i: S3 sleep doesn't fully wake with C2RC3, PCEFI10.5 and DSDT fixes

 

 

I'm using F9i and my sleep & wake is working fine, however there are some funnies

 

I have a 920 C0 which when set on default setting is reported on the bios splash as 2.88GHz

I'm currently at 3.5GHz according to the bios cpu screen but the splash says over 3.66GHz

 

 

I'm using PCEFI 10.5 and have followed the DSDT fixes in this thread and not getting any running errors

(the OrangeIconFix didn't work for me - the only version I found was the Leopard version though so I went back to the old IOBlock thingy whatsit). I'm running in 64bit mode by the way

 

Since I'm running at 3.5GHz+ is there any way of verifying that all the CPU patches were applied? I'd applied some

of the other DSDT edits already via the DSDTSE editor

 

What I am still looking to fix are the following

 

1 - get rid of EvoReboot/OpenHaltRestore kext - thought I once saw a DSDT fix for this?

2 - get wake from Bluetooth working - I've got my fourth dongle on order which I think will work as I've tried 1.1, 2.0,

& 2.1 (without suitable firmware) versions and think I see the pattern ;) Sorted

3 - I'm not sure my USB EHCI in system profiler is fully correct & Mac like yet (aesthetic only?)

4 - Find documentation on what the SMC keys in FakeSMC mean

5 - Fix the following glitch in Serial-ATA

 

 

Unknown AHCI Standard Controller:

 

Vendor: Unknown

Product: AHCI Standard Controller

Speed: 3 Gigabit

Description: AHCI Version 1.00 Supported

I found this kext last night and it works for me. Put in /E/E. Although it's no DSDT fix, at least you will have the info injected.

Thanks, a quick google for OpenAHCI.kext and I found this from some guy called d00d on the internet ;)

 

"Their OpenAHCI.kext showed me the device-id value I needed to add to IDE1 to correctly show Intel ICH10 AHCI in the System Profiler’s Serial-ATA section on my GA-EX58."

 

Means I probably missed something ...

1. I use OSXRestart.kext but it would be nice if there was a DSDT patch for that.

2. What's a dongle?? :P

3. d00d's DSDT patches all ports for hot plug. I think the real MacPro uses this feature on only some of the ports.

4. Yeah even fakesmcv2.5 gives those errors.

5. d00d's DSDT patch identifies ICH10 properly....I still don't think its quite right since we have to use OrangeFix.kext. But along side that issue is we still need to get JMicron identified properly and/or playing nice with IOAHCIFamily.kext. I think someone is working on a kext that is 64bit, maybe that will help. As of right now, I can get the JMicron controller to identify properly but it causes KP after waking from sleep.

 

And one more for your list.

 

6. Realtek1000.kext support for wake on lan. I think this is in the works as well. I've seen numerous people discuss the lack of this feature.

A dongle is often USB plug in device that does something eg Bluetooth Adapter

 

Anyhow, here is my kernel log, any thoughts?

                   Store (Package (0x04)
                       {
                           "layout-id",
                           Unicode ("B"),
                           "PinConfigurations",
                           Buffer (Zero) {}
                       }, Local0)
                               }

 

It is correct?

 

I wish to make a sound without additional kext , help?

Yes, `Unicode ("B"),' is the compiled version of layout-id 66.

Do you have sound now?

The sound at me always also was, but through driver RealtekALC888.kext, I would want that was used native appleHDA, but with it the sound does not work

d00d - is the DSDT you have attached in your tutorial the one you are currently using?
yes

I'm using F9i and my sleep & wake is working fine, however there are some funnies

 

I have a 920 C0 which when set on default setting is reported on the bios splash as 2.88GHz

I'm currently at 3.5GHz according to the bios cpu screen but the splash says over 3.66GHz

UD5 BIOS F9h, F9i and F9j show the CPU speed at the 21 clock ratio (920 or W3520) at POST if turbo is enabled.

For example, 2.66 and turbo shows the following at POST;

2.80GHz(133x21)

Also, if you set the ratio to 21 in the MB Intelligent Tweaker screen it enables turbo in the Advanced CPU Features screen.

Previous BIOSs would only let you set the ratio to 20 in the MB Intelligent Tweaker, and you could only enable turbo in the Advanced CPU Features screen.

dumb stupid question - Is the lower case "f" a typo or does it need to be lowercase - does it make a difference?

I used lower case and it didn't make a difference, at least when using DSDTSE.

I'm not sure I understand, the lower case k isn't a typo, and this isn't a DSDT modification.

It's a change to fakesmc.kext/Contents/Info.plist, see post 1, number 13.

Oops, my bad. Yes it's for fakeSMC. First blonde moment I had all week. Upper/lower case doesn't matter when editing DSDT I find, but that might just be the editor correcting this when it compiles. :o

One more ??? - I have the Extreme version of this board - does anyone have Bios settings (using F7 right now) for a 4Ghz overclock? GeekBench 125547 @ 3.73 so far

 

d00d - how do you get past the x20 multiplier?

It's more about the revision of the CPU, a D0 is generally more over clockable than a C0.

There shouldn't really be any difference between an Extreme and a UD5.

With my D0 2.66 GHz W3520 I can boot at 4.1 GHz by leaving all voltages on auto except for DRAM, and using the other settings in the 4.2 GHz template attached to post 1.

 

I'm not sure what you mean by `getting past the 20x ratio'.

For an i7 920 or Xeon W3520 just enable turbo in BIOS and it will get you 21x on POST and 22x in OS X.
