                   Return (Local0)
               }
           }

and remove IRQs from devices PIC and TMR.

						 IRQNoFlags ()
						 {2}
					 IRQNoFlags ()
						 {0}

IRQ from device RTC0 should have been removed by DSDT_Patcher (by fassl) and added to device HPET ("-newHPET" option).

 

 

SpeedStep: (AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext works, no need for NullCPUPowerManagement.kext)

 

Add C-states from MacPro3,1 and set SMproductname as MacPro3,1 in /Extra/smbios.plist.

Patched dsdt.aml with all fixes (BIOS 1201):

 

2 GB RAM dsdt.aml.zip

If you have different RAM size you may have to edit OperationRegion values for RAMW, BIOS and STBL, check your original DSDT. Thanks to Stuntman for the info.

but would you be able to give a step by step guide? I am kind of new of this hackintosh world...

You mean step by step guide to install SL, or to apply the DSDT fixes? For SL installation there are many guides, it's a generic procedure. If you talk about the DSDT patches, I will make a diff from the file created by DSDT_Patcher, so it will be easier to visualize where things were added, but if you have the same mobo you can use my file.

 

Wow! Thank you! Do you know how to implement my Nvidia 8800GTS 512 Mb to dsdt.aml?

You are welcome. I don't use DSDT to enable nVidia drivers, just to fix issues related to the mobo. For nVidia I use Chameleon's GraphicsEnabler option, it works pretty well.

Can you upload your DSDT file? Which BIOS version are you using?

 

Thanks.

 

Doesn't work for me either, it just hangs

I updated my BIOS to version 1201 and patched DSDT again, if you use the latest BIOS my file should work for you now (attached to the first post).

I am using 1201 but even the new one just causes the system to hang on the Apple Splash Logo

Did you set SATA as AHCI in BIOS setup?

 

Boot in verbose mode (-v) to see where it hangs.

Yes it is set to AHCI, and all the HFS+ Kexts etc load

 

Can you please give me a detailed description of what you did?

 

I have now got Snow Leopard installed on my drive with no Loaders or anything, it is a totally clean install of Leopard only.

 

I will do exactly what you say and it should work

 

Thanks

You just need to install the boot loader (Chameleon or PC_EFI) and FakeSMC

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=164809

 

(and legacy kexts for audio and LAN of course)

 

If you did that and it doesn't work, boot in verbose mode (-v) and check where it hangs.

Can't Chameleon be done with the installer?

 

Yes, I think you can use the installer.

 

Kexts I use:

AD1988bFix.kext

fakesmc.kext

OSXRestart.kext

OpenHaltRestart.kext

PlatformUUID.kext

How about the AppleYukon2Injector?

 

Did you delete any KEXTs?

 

Did you just drag and drop the DSDT.aml to Root?

About Yukon, I edited the Info.plist in the original kext (see references), but you can use the injector too.

 

Our mobo can run SL without any patches to DSDT, just some things don't work (fixes in this topic).

 

Check if ACPI 2.0 and APIC are enabled in BIOS setup.

 

Other option that should be enabled is C1E.

Everything works but no LAN, Lan is connected when given manual settings but no internet

I'm using an edited kext, as explained in references link, it works fine.

 

If you are using the injector, be sure to put it in /Extra/Extensions and include it in /Extra/Extensions.mkext

 

If it doesn't work, try to edit the Info.plist in the original kext, it's a 3 bytes change. Then touch the extensions folder so the cache is rebuilt (and remove the injector).

 

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

I am going to start again

 

I don't understand because I don't know why some Kexts go in extra and some don't

Most legacy kexts work in /E/E.

Kexts with dependencies can also work in /E/E if you copy its dependencies to the same folder.

Some need mkext in /Extra to work.

 

I have all "extra" kexts in /E/E

AD1988bFix.kext

fakesmc.kext

JMicronATA.kext

OpenHaltRestart.kext

OSXRestart.kext

PlatformUUID.kext

VoodooMonitor.kext

 

The only changes in /S/L/E are edit in Yukon kext and remove AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext to avoid mouse lag using iTunes.

So after installation of Snow Leopard, I will use my SnowInstaller to boot into the HD

 

Then install the Chameleon installer to the HD

 

Drag and drop the above KEXTs to the E/E folder

 

Run KEXT utility to repair

 

How about the DSDT??

And is everything else OK that I said?

 

I guess so. Can't be sure because you didn't answer if you are using MBR or GUID partition scheme.

I use MBR, put kexts in /Extra/Extensions and dsdt.aml in /Extra

I read that using GUID you have to install Chameleon, kexts and DSDT in the EFI partition (but I never installed this way).
