P6TD Deluxe / M Lion Ok but slow boot

Recommended Posts


I want to thank you too eep357, now my Asus P6T (Vanilla) boots from 2mins to 34secs.....Now I know how people can boot ML within 6secs with SSD.....

wanna go faster? grab Chameleon Wizard and change settings in the boot.plist to disable chameleon's gui altogether (GUI=No) with quiet boot and verbose enabled, set your ML partition as the primary and use kernel cache. Basically make it so not one single graphic or picture shows until you get to the desktop, this greatly speeds up the first half of the boot which would be after picking the volume to boot from, but before chameleon hands off to OSX. For whatever reason having a GUI slows this down quite a lot. Once disabled, with SSD, blink twice and your at the desktop. Takes my bios way longer to post than it does for ML to boot. Add in USBBusFix=Yes for improved GPU fps and a slight performance boost all around. Using a text editor it would look like this:


<key>Default Partition</key>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<key>Quiet Boot</key>

Is the USBBusFix specifically for this motherboard or is this useful for other boards too?


And how about that appleacpi kext? Is that mainboard specific?

    • Cool! Do you have a link? Googled and didn't see anything yet.   Never mind... you're quick! I just noticed you updated it on the 1st page THANKS!!!!!!
    • I resolved the problem. Just set this coding in your config.plist:   "
                      <string>USB 10.13.4+ by PMHeart</string>
              </array>     "

    • I guess having pre{max-height: 500px;overflow: auto;} in CSS was too much for IPS Devs' tast.  Until an admin has hands on this, you still can use stylish plugin to accomplish it.     In fact, it is pretty easy than it appears - Just apply a simple click on the codebox (it will highlight it), then 'delete' key.
    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
