Dell Vostro 1700 DSDT BREAKING.

I'm not new to the whole osx86 thing, but for some quite strange reason i'm unsure of, using a DSDT I generated (perhaps wrongly?) for the laptop, it actually breaks trackpad & keyboard (before DSDT patching they're fine).


So far my installtion etc goes like this

Dell Pre-boot CD v0.55 ( http://http://www.superhai.com/boot-test.html )

Install Snow Leopard from Retail 10.6.0

re-insert Dell Pre-boot CD

Install OSX combo update 10.6.4, as well as Java Update 2 and iTunes 9.2 from USB Stick


^ ALL of the above works fine but when i generate a DSDT (using Snow OSX Universal to generate a 20KB DSDT.aml) and bodge a quick `UserDSDT` install using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ( http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/02/mul...stallation.html ) Everything still works fine, but keyboard and trackpad are broken! - All kexts i've installed to try Kludge the install either fail, or the mouse sensitivity is too strong, and completely uncontrollable!


Notes: Graphics work absolutely fine at (1920x1200 resolution without kexts suchas NVEnabler / Natit)

Wireless is detected completely natively as Airport (Dell 1390 wireless card with Broadcom Chipset)

USB seems obscenely quicker compared to my main machine

SATA speed again is far quicker than my main machine


Any advice on more 'correct' DSDT patching would be appreciated, as the DSDT patch, at the very LEAST does allow correct restart/shutdown (Sleep untested)


Thanks for reading <3


EDIT: I have noticed that not only does the DSDT break the trackpad and keyboard, but also kext installs

(fakesmc, ev0reboot, null cpu management), although i'm not sure which breaks it, I'm narrowing down possibilities
