Recommended Posts

Asus P6T Deluxe V1 & V2 boot-132 Install Method

No Mac Required!

 

ATTENTION! 10.6.3 and higher will break sound. There is a patcher on the latest install ISO and also in the downloads section below.

 

ATTENTION! 10.6.8 requires a new method to fix audio for AD2000b chips. There is a patcher linked below.

The same method works for Lion too.

 

 

Credits

 

We'll start off with a few credits...
  • This post is the evolution of the original thread by wziard(which is now obsolete). Thanks to him for starting that thread and getting many people up and running.
    http://www.insanelym...p...t&p=1243439
  • The attached ISO was created using the methods documented here by IanT. I used his "Mars" method to develop a boot-132 disk for this motherboard.
    http://www.insanelym...p...t&p=1283668
  • ErmaC for his work in modifying the DSDT and his installation thread in the Italian language section. You can translate it with Google

  • All those who helped test the installation package...thank you!
  • And of course the Chameleon team, netkas, AsereBLN, David Elliot and all the people involved with the EFI boot loader. Their great work benefits us all.

 

Requirements

 

  • An Asus P6T Deluxe V1 or V2 motherboard based computer.
  • Asus P6TD reported to work by qbe.
  • Asus P6T SE reported to work by dirtycofe. Post with Audio kext link
  • Please PM me with other supported boards and I'll put them here
  • The ISO attached to the bottom of this post.
  • The Mac OS X Snow Leopard Installation DVD.
  • A supported graphics card
  • Nice utility for those that have to add additional kexts for their board -- Kext Utility

 

Basic Installation Instructions

 

This assumes the system has a single SATA hard drive and a SATA DVD drive attached. Alternate partition and multi-boot setups may be covered in another post below. Download and extract the attached ISO and burn it to a CD or DVD.

Operating System Install
  1. Boot off the boot-132 CD you created, you can hit F8 when the system is POSTing and use the Asus BIOS Boot Selector to choose your DVD drive as the boot drive . You'll end up at a Chameleon boot screen.
     
  2. At this point remove the boot-132 disk and insert the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Installation DVD. Press F5 and after the screen refreshes you'll see the Mac OS X Install DVD as a boot option. Select it using the arrow keys and hit Enter to boot. This starts the retail Snow Leopard installation process. If you boot to a black screen, Start from Step 1 again and after hitting F5, hit Tab. You can try typing in the following kernel flags to get your video working. Try each combination. A visit to netkas.org might help you find information to get your card fully working after installation.
    • -x
       
    • GraphicsEnabler=n
       
    • GraphicsEnabler=n arch=i386

  • Choose your language and proceed to the next screen.
  • From the menu at the top of the screen select Utilities->Disk Utility. Select your hard drive and partition it as a GUID(GPT) disk and leave it at the default file system type. Apply the changes so the partition is laid out and the file systems are formatted. Exit Disk Utility.
  • You can now continue through the retail install process, selecting the Volume you just created as the installation target. When everything is done installing your computer will restart.
  • Hit F8 during the POST so you get the Asus BIOS Boot Selector screen. Remove the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Installation DVD and put the boot-132 disk back in the drive. Select the DVD drive from the boot selector and press Enter. You will arrive at the Chameleon boot screen again, but this time you will have the hard drive volume you just installed to as a boot option. Use the arrow keys to select it and press Enter.
  • Enjoy the video and then continue through the Apple setup process. When you get to the Registration screen you should hit Command-Q or Windows Key-Q(the windows key is between the left Ctrl and Alt keys) and skip the registration. Finish up the rest of the installation screens and you'll be left at the OS X Desktop.
  • In the upper right corner of the screen you will see an icon for the DVD drive. Double-click it and there will be an installer package named P6TDeluxeV2Installer.pkg. Double-click that and go through the installation screens. If you have multiple Volumes select the correct one as the installation target.
  • Click the Applications folder in the Dock on the lower-right, it will pop open and then you will click the Utilities folder, then click Terminal. At the Terminal screen type in:
    sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
    
    Hit Enter and put in your password when prompted.
    This will rebuild your extensions cache so the network adapters will be recognized.
    You may also have to go to System Preferences in the Dock and then go to the Network icon
    for the adapters to be recognized.
    


  • Click the Apple in the upper left part of the screen and select Restart...
    Remove all disks from the DVD drive and see if you can boot. If you can then you are done! If not, I've encountered some boot problems in testing and the following solution helped.
    Solutions to boot problems
    This solution requires you to boot off the boot-132 CD/DVD disk and select your hard drive. This will get you to the Desktop so you can try each fix.

  • Go to Applications->Utilities->Terminal and try these commands at the prompt.
    mount <Enter>
    You should see output similar to this:
    
    /dev/disk3s2 on / (hfs, local, journaled)
    devfs on /dev (devfs, local, nobrowse)
    map -hosts on /net (autofs, nosuid, automounted, nobrowse)
    map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted, nobrowse)
    
    The first line shows your root volume
    Yours may be mounted on a different device e.g. /dev/disk2s2
    Type in:
    sudo fdisk -e /dev/diskX <Enter> replace X with your drive number
    
    You are now at an fdisk prompt. Type:
    p <Enter> to print the partition table, you will see output like this:
    
    Disk: /dev/disk3 geometry: 60801/255/63 [976773168 sectors]
    Offset: 0 Signature: 0xAA55
    Starting Ending
    #: id cyl hd sec - cyl hd sec [ start - size]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1: EE 1023 254 63 - 1023 254 63 [ 1 - 976773167] GPT
    2: 00 0 0 0 - 0 0 0 [ 0 - 0] unused
    3: 00 0 0 0 - 0 0 0 [ 0 - 0] unused
    4: 00 0 0 0 - 0 0 0 [ 0 - 0] unused
    
    Type:
    flag 1 <Enter> To flag your partition as active, it will be the one with id EE.
    
    Type:
    w <Enter> To write the changes, hit y at the reboot warning if present.
    
    Type q <Enter> to quit.  Reboot and remove all disks again to see if it works.
    
    If not, boot one more time from the boot-132 disk and select the hard drive.
    Once at the Desktop, double-click the CD/DVD icon and run the
    P6TDeluxeV2Installer.pkg installation package again.

Audio patcher for 10.6.0-10.6.7

Updated, uses perl script to patch file instead of a binary diff, works with any version of Snow Leopard. Thanks

to Fabio and aschar. Drag and drop audiopatcher.sh onto a Terminal window, hit Enter and provide your admin password.

Audio patcher for SL 10.6.8 & Lion GM

Backup your existing AppleHDA.kext first if you want

 

sudo cp -Rp /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext.10.6.8

 

You need to rename any AD2000b.kext in /Extra/Extensions. If you are using VoodooHDA.kext, it needs to be renamed too. You can do this like so:

 

cd /Extra/Extensions
sudo mv AD2000b.kext AD2000b.kext.disabled

 

Then rebuild your Extensions cache in /Extra/Extensions

 

sudo /usr/sbin/kextcache -m /Extra/Extensions.mkext /Extra/Extensions	 (make adjustments if using EFI partition)
sudo chown root:wheel /Extra/Extensions.mkext
sudo chmod 0644 /Extra/Extensions.mkext

 

Next, extract AD2000b.zip to a folder and double-click AD2000b script. It will ask for your sudo password before patching up AppleHDA.kext for you. Reboot and you should have sound. Fabio, provided the modified files and script...all thanks go to him.

How to dump your ACPI tables

 

If you have a processor other than a Core i7 920 or 940 it would be useful for you to post your ACPI tables. This will give us the information we need to create a custom DSDT for your processor with the proper SpeedStep information.

 

You will need a USB flash drive or other R/W storage media plugged into your computer. Copy the attached dump.zip file to the root of this drive and unzip it. It will created a "dump" folder with 2 files in it, dump.sh and dump.pl. If you already have a folder named dump on the drive, temporarily rename it.

 

dump.zip

 

Go here:

 

http://software.opensuse.org/112/en

 

and select the "Live GNOME" installation CD(32bit or 64bit is fine). After you download and burn the ISO to a disk, boot from it. Just hit Enter at the initial screen and it will boot into a "Live" openSUSE linux desktop -- no changes are made to your system.

 

You should see your flash drive icon on the desktop along with the volume name for the device. Double-click the drive icon to open a file browser. Right-click the dump folder and select "Open in Terminal", a terminal window will appear where you will type in the following commands:

 


su  <Enter>    // you'll see the prompt change to a red color to indicate root privileges.

bash dump.sh <Enter>   //  You're done.

 

 

Click the Computer button in the lower-left corner and select Shutdown and then Restart. You can remove the boot CD. Once you are booted back into your main OS you should rename the dump.zip file that is on your flash drive(in the dump folder).

 

Please rename it to:

 

<processor type>-<motherboard>-<BIOS ver>.zip

 

e.g.'s

 

960-P6TDeluxeV2-0804.zip

920-P6TDDeluxe-0303.zip

 

Post it! We only need dumps from people with processors other than the 920 or 940 unless specifically requested. Thanks!

 

If anyone has access to a new iMac with the Core i7 processor this procedure might also work....hold down 'c' on the keyboard when booting to get it to boot off the openSUSE disk. PM me if you have access to one, there are more instructions I can give to get additional information that would be nice to have.

solved compatibility with AppleVIAATA.kext

 

I found the problem that causes the non-functioning of Sleep with that kext is a injected (cosmetics) data inside the DSDT...

with this DSDT you can use this kext for the PATA support w/o corrupt the sleep :) .

DSDT v3.1.3 (Full)

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

Feb, 26 2010

 

solved SLEEP issue

I found the problem cause sleep issue... is the firewire pach and the AppleVIAATA.kext

So this DSDT fix the sleep but in boot-log you will see back:

Firewire runtime power conservation disabled. (2)

This still a temporary solution for all people ask for get SLEEP function work back.

(If I have time I try to fix the firewire log error in other way)

DSDT update: DSDT v3.00

Feb, 3 2010

 

Please read before using:

- If you have a PS2 keyboard probably does not work (I removed this part)

- In this new version is missing the SpeedStep, but the system works well the temperatures are very good and overall system responsiveness is extraordinary.

- I have reduced the DSDT code to a minimum (or near) (maybe this will achieve a bootloader for our motherboard.)

- Still unresolved the problem of sleep :)

- Yet to be tested. .. if there are improvements to the FireWire or remains as in previous versions.

- So if you have problem with this new DSDT.... go back at previus version M2.4

It's probably your video card. After you hit F5 to refresh in Step 2 make sure the install DVD is highlighted and hit Tab.

 

At the boot prompt try:

 

arch=i386 -x32 <Enter>

 

You may need a newer video card if that doesn't work. If it works, you would have to use those kernel flags everytime you boot....put them in /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist

DSDT v M2.3 coming

I reduce the code more than 50% :)

 

;)

Fabio

 

 

Fabio, can you please make the ethernet fix installation optional during the install of your package? It doesn't work for my Asus P6T Deluxe V2, and it seems to make the original "ethernet fix" on the original Asus P6T Deluxe V2 thread not work after the installation of your package.

 

To try and put it simply, the original ethernet fix from this link below worked (without using your package - fresh installation).

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=182978

 

Your ethernet fix included in the package did not work (also a fresh installation), and after trying your package (with it not working) then trying the fix from the original thread also did not fix it.

 

Thanks

I see you are new here, welcome to the forum. I would appreciate if you would click "Edit" in the lower right section of your post and delete everything but your question. No need to quote my entire first post.

 

You might find help here:

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showforum=104

 

In the future, a multi-boot guide might be made here but it's not a priority right now.

 

@Breathless

 

I created the package based on some of Fabio's work but it is entirely different now. Fabio is the DSDT pro and handles the Italian language guide. The installer does exactly the same thing as the post you referenced. After you are done with your fresh install, restart. After the system comes up go to Applications->Utilities->Terminal and type in: sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

 

Restart one more time and go to System Preferences->Network after a short time you should see the network adapters pop-up. It works everytime here. There is an ethernet autopatcher setup with the installer, you can remove it by deleting /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.dgobe.ethpatcher.plist

 

I'm going to document what the installer does in another post when I have time.

Awesome, thanks! I will try this on my next attempt to get everything working properly.

 

Anyone else having problems with USB reliability? It seems that my USB ports will work sometimes and then sometimes not. Rebooting sometimes gets them back, and then rebooting other times they still don't show up. It affects most/all of my USB devices, both those that are plugged into a hub, and those that are plugged directly into the onboard ports.

Exactly as explained by dgobe...

I pass over the part about the installer, dgobe handles brilliantly in this part (excellent installer).

I prefer to devote my "hobby time" to optimize the system (like DSDT) and post the new, I know my installer is outdated I will remove them and get the proper link with this new ones proposed here.

Glad to hear it worked.

 

netkas has a driver package for your video card here:

http://netkas.org/?p=212

 

Use Software update first to download and install at least the 10.6.1 update to Snow Leopard.

 

No one can help you with your wireless if you don't say what you have....but I suggest you do a search for it first before posting.

I tried AppleVIAATA.kext as suggested here Marvell 88SE6102 (PATA/IDE) under SL 64 Bit Vanilla. Now the drive connected to my eSATA works.

 

AppleVIAATA.kext - http://www.kexts.com/view/87-appleviaata_f...ow_leopard.html

 

Dgobe,

 

Just a suggestion,

 

I think if you add the above file to your installation dvd we will be able to install SL from a PATA/IDE drive as

It works fine with my old IDE/PATA drive in 32 / 64 bits mode.

 

 

Thanks,

PiSToL

@iFabio...

 

Since you are the DSDT specialist I was wondering if I could make a request...or just ask for your help...

 

I have a fully up and running system except my wireless card which is DWA-552 which uses Atheros Chipset, it is supported and recognized but it causes kernel panics after I boot.

 

However if I set my bios to CPU = 1, and turn off hyperthreading it works just fine, so my theory is that it needs to be patched in the DSDT but I really don't think know how to do it yet.

 

I was wondering if you would be interested in trying or giving me any advice on how to do it.

I can give you all the info you need just let me know...

Thanks!

news for P6TD Deluxe

Hello everyone.

I did a test for you so as to remove the doubts of compatibility with the DSDT of the P6T Deluxe.

 

I downloaded from ASUS website the latest firmware for my motherboard,

the P6T Deluxe v1 BIOS version 1904.

and I also downloaded the BIOS of your motherboard,

P6TD Deluxe BIOS version 0303.

 

I extracted from the two BIOS the ACPI tables and in particular the DSDT tables.

I decompile and have compared it...

The result.. the two tables are identical, this means you can use our DSDT with one caveat, I do not know what exactly your peripheral is... the device position maybe are locate in the same place but this .. I can't see if is the same as our mobo.

Anyway.. have fun!

 

Fabio
