[DSDT-Request, donation] ThinkPad W520

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

im from germany so sry for my (maybe) bad english. I get Lion 10.7.2 to work on my ThinkPad W520 i really hope someone can help me with my DSDT now.

I extracted the file from Windows with DSDT-Editor from insanelymac.com. If you need any information about my system just let me know.

 

I tried a lot of things to get it to work and it took me 2 Weeks to get Lion installed so i hope i get a working system at the end with the dsdt icon_e_smile.gif.

 

ThinkPad W520 NY424GE

 

- with 16GB Ram

- 120GB OCZ Vertex Turbo

 

My CPU- Performance (i7-2720) is the main problem. Under Windows i get around 5,2 in Cinebench and in OS X only 4,2. Maybe a problem with Speedstep or Turboboost? I tried diffrent Benchmarks but nothing changed. In my BIOS-Settings everything is enabled for my CPU.

 

If i get it to work i will donate for your hard work! ;)

I tried it myself with DSDT Editor and Patcher and added the Speedstep Patch but i get 2 Errors:

 

29 Error syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_NAMESEG, expecting ',' or '}'

 

and

 

95 Error syntax error, unexpected PARSEOP_PROCESSOR, expecting $end

 

I really dont know what to do ... i hope you can help me ;)

I'm no programmer but it seems you are missing a "}" somewhere and a " $end"

 

These will usually be by what is having problems with it. Ex.

 

PARSEOP_NAMESEG, expecting ',' or '}' = line or argument PARSEOP_NAMESEG wants a comma or a "}" some where on its line

 

PARSEOP_PROCESSOR, expecting $end = Which means PARSEOP_PROCESSOR wants a $end.

I tried it with Chimera and added

 

<?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">

I also had to delete AppleTyMCEDriver.kext to boot or i get a KernelPanic.

 

in the org.chameleon.boot.plist but i still get very low CPU-Benchmarks ...

 

With Chameleon (your link) i get the Apple logo with the spinning circle and stuck :/

if MSR-Tools work correct my CPU don't use TurboBoost:

 

all the time with 2,2GHz instead over 3GHz with SingleCore Benchmark

 

MSRDumper: PStatesReached: 22

 

all the time :)
