[GUIDE] *NEW* Snow Leopard Retail on ASUS P6T Deluxe V1&V2

Hi to all,

 

I did an update to 10.6.6 about 3 days ago, and I noticed that many times when a do a single click. it takes it as a double click and opens the file / folder or whatever i clicked on.

 

It doesn't do it anytime, but most of the time.

 

Has anybody noticed the same ? Has anybody an idea ?

 

I'm sure that I didn't have this before the update.

 

Thanks in advance for your help

I'm running 10.6.6 on my P6T WS Pro without any problems. Only using 3 kexts as stated earlier, and I fixed my sleep delay after finding I had left out the device id injection for the LPCB in my dsdt. Kinda neat that sleep still worked at all without it! Here's my updated dsdt (modded and stock) if you guys want to list the P6T WS Pro on the first page as well. My modded one includes the cpu section for the i7 950, with thirteen P-States. I had noticed the P6T Deluxe one you guys list for the 950 only includes 11 P-States, and correcting to the 13 definitely increased my geekbench score.

Hi banini_jeque.

With the latest bootlaoader chameleon and similar, and after 10.6.4.

the P/C/T-State aren't need into the DSDT... the bootloader and recently system software feature provide the "correct" setting"...

 

Try delete from your DSDT that section and you will see no difference at all :)

So I would just put in DropSSDT=yes, GeneratePStates=yes, and GenerateCStates=yes right?

 

Edit: Okay, so, I got that to work using the above commands in my boot.plist, but it only gives me 12 P-States. I've also discovered that if I boot with device id injection for the LPCB, the whole system stutters (audio, video, cursor, etc), and boot/restart/shutdown times increase. As soon as I switch back the the dsdt I was using before that didn't have that, the stuttering goes away, and that's the only difference between those two dsdts.

 

Edit 2: Alright I seem to have fixed the stuttering by carefully going over my dsdt collection and trying a different HPET device section. The one I had didn't have any IRQs in it, but the one I have now does. I'm going to keep using the CPU section for now since Chameleon is dropping a P State.

 

Edit 3: Attached my latest DSDT with the fixed HPET device section.

Nice to see that progress for your mobo...

When I have a little bit of time I try to help you to configure out your mobo...

anyway with my DSDT(no P/T/C-State) + Chameleon 2 RC5(699). This is my com.apple.Boot.plist:

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

ok, my GTX 285 is dead. Before jumping on the Nvidia or ATI cards, may i know if you guys have been using GTX 4xx series. How is the card? Any over heating issues?

 

Thanks,

mine died too... overheated and fried itself...

 

moved onto Sapphire ATI HD5870 Vapour X and with 10.6.3 and its easy to set up with just a change in boot file...

Will RAID0 be available soon? Would really want to get the most out of my 2 ssd's. Also, one of my harddrives can not be mounted. It's just grayed out in the diskutil. How do i fix ;)? It looks like people are only getting 2.0 sound, if i use optical will it be 5.1 then?

@mYrN

 

Please use hardware raid for your ssd (couple of threads are already out there)

 

Please format your HDD before connecting it to the mobo to test it out, just to make sure it is not related to a hardware failure.

 

Please test your optical/coaxial cable in windows first to make sure the cables are ok, then in SL.

 

Could you please add your rig details so that we can understand what parts you have (mobo, video card, memory, ssd etc)

 

 

hi everyone,

 

I see most people here have either Nvidia GTX2xxx or ATI 5xxx/4xxx - could you guys please let me know if any of your have try a GTX 4xxx.

 

I read on the VGA section that some folks are still having issues getting max performance out of the GTX 4xxx, and some are happy/others complanining about Open GL and card freezing from time to time.

 

I understand that this thread if for P6T, but I am just interested to know if anyone with the same mobo has manage to have GTX 4XXX working fine (same as GTX 2xx)

 

Thanks for your help.

I had been running my machine for over a year with no significant issues.

Recently upgraded ram and decided to upgrade to larger hard drive too.

I imaged the OS drive to new drive, reinstalled P6TDeluxeV2Installer.pkg to new HD.

I also had to re-edit \Extra\com.apple.Boot.plist to get the boot options working (not sure why, but a quick edit, save and reboot fixed it).

 

Everything else seems to be working fine EXCEPT my drive icons on my desktop.

I have 3 internal SATA drives MAC, DATA, WIN7. I do not want these drives on my desktop.

In Finder-Preferences-General:

-Hard Disks is NOT checked and MAC does not appear on desktop

-External Drives is checked - when I uncheck it DATA (formated MAC OS Ext. Journaled) will disappear from the desktop

-CDs, DVDs.. is checked - when I uncheck it WIN7 (NTFS) will disappear from the desktop

 

Not sure why the OS thinks DATA and WIN7 are not internal Hard Drives.

My old installation (the one I imaged from the smaller HD) does not do this.

I've looked and looked and can't find a difference between the two installations. btw - the drive icons when displayed are the correct icons (not orange).

 

Any ideas on how to fix?

I have been playing again with VoodoHDA and boot time.

With VoodoHDA 2.62 (from google code), the boot time is only, BUT only 6 spins.

With the AppleHDA boot time is 30 spins.

Also the digital optical out works as well with VoodoHDA.

The only problem with VoodoHDA is that volume strenght is tripple weaker then with the AppleHDA, but the boottime is tripple and more faster.

Maybe Ireset can play a little with dsdt and voodohda or something simular.

Can someone fix this?

It would be very nice to have the boot time at 6 spins and volume loudness as if with AppleHDA.

Can someone link me to the latest appropriate DSDT.aml file for me and advise me how to update my DSDT.aml file and place it in the appropriate folder?

 

Thanks

Use dsdt auto patcher!

Thanks!

 

Autopatcher updates your system to the correct DSDT, or it creates the appropriate DSDT file for you?

 

Also how do you get the DSDT file in the appropriate folder with permissions?

 

Also is 50 to 60 C degrees too hot. Is there a way to help with CPU temperture?

 

Thanks

Too hard look into the first post?

 

Also in the post #4 there is the DSDT for this mobo...

Thanks, downloaded the DSDT file from post #4. I can't find the appropriate method to update the DSDT file that I currently have in "Extra" folder to this one.

Hey guys,

 

I am running into a peculiar issue.

 

This is what I did:

 

- Installed 10.6.3 using the prescribed method (I used the USB key method) I had to use GraphicsEnabler=n to get into the install otherwise it would stall with my GPU fan at 100%

- Once install was done, installed 10.6.6 combo update

- Installed the given .pkg (from the .iso) for the motherboard

- Ran kext utility to repair permissions

- Reboot

 

The computer kept stalling during bootup (few lines after DSMOS has arrived) everytime.

 

I tried giving arch=i386 and it booted right up. Removing the line would give me 100% fan speed.

 

I added GraphicsEnabler=n and installed ATY_Init.kext to get QE/CI working on my 5870.

 

Then I just randomly tried booting once with "-x" To my surprise, the hack booted even though I had left out arch=i386

 

From then on, it boots perfectly fine into 10.6.6 64 bit.

 

What fixed it?
