D525 GA-D525TUD dead end! IDE/PATA Issues, and general questions

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I've reached a dead end getting my file server up and running. I've installed 10.8.1, and can boot into the OS no problem using a patched kernel from here, as well as FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, and lnx2mac's RTL81XXX driver.

 

HOWEVER, I try to install MacMan's Jmicron SATA and ATA drivers, and they do not load! These are listed as working with 10.8, so I'm confused. I have also installed ApplePCIIDE.kext, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext, and tried booting with PCIROOT=1. I have a Mac Mini 3,1 system definition and serial from Chameleon Wizard. I think I also have an IOATAFamily that's been patched in there too, but maybe not...

 

Currently, the IDE controller is registered as connected to the PCI bus, but the kext is not loaded.

 

However, MacMan's kext should be the right one, this is the "GSATA" Gigabyte chip, JmicronXXX363. What can I do to get the kexts to load? Should I make a DSDT for this system (even though it doesn't seem to need it)? Would a different system definition help?

 

Please help! I am soooo close to getting this system up!

 

Thanks!

 

PS: I can't get iCloud to work, either. It has a "communication error"...

Unfortunately, it did not work. The system still shows the IDE controller attached to the PCI bus, but no driver loaded.

 

However, I have a number of other kexts installed, and I also tried a Lion install on the main drive (exact same problems, lol) and am running ML off a cloned drive. So my next steps are to restore ML to the main drive (since it's equivalent to L and IIRC has networking fixes), restore the stock extensions directory and carefully reinstall minimum kexts; the above jmicron will be the first storage one I try under this approach.

 

In anticipation of failure I've decided to throw money at the problem and ordered a 3TB WD Caviar Red. Better to get some real space and forward-compatible RAID features than fight and fight for 500GB of space on 2 drives that are already at end-of-life :lol:

I haven't used IDE in years, so cannot testify to it's effectiveness. The one above was linked from another topic. Here is my collection of Lion and ML Lion PATA and SATA kexts, out of all of them, I only use one.

      Hello all!
       
      I have successfully got my Hackbook online, using USB tethering. Thanks to Herve (can't use special characters, you know who you are!), I also got my audio working.
       
      I am very much ready to begin setting up iCloud, the App Store, and iMessage/FaceTime. Those services (especially the latter two) are what got me into hackintoshing.
       
      Problem: The listed services fail to sign me in. iCloud sign in from System Preferences returns "Unable to sign in because of a problem communicating with iCloud."
      FaceTime returns a registration process fail, the App Store reports that my computer can't be verified, and iMessage reports an activation error. However, iTunes works, except no Apple Music.
       
      HARDWARE:
      Intel Core i7-2630QM
      GeForce GT 525M (using integrated HD 3000 graphics instead)
      Custom Dell L502X A12 BIOS w/ UEFI support
       
      SOFTWARE:
      OS X Mavericks 10.9.5
      AppleALC + VoodooHDA for audio
      VoodooPS2Controller (trackpad kext likes to cause KP during boot, sometimes)
       
      Any possible fixes for this?
      Thanks in Advance!

      Okay So I have two PCIe controller cards, both 3rd party, unbranded from eBay.
       
      1st runs off the Marvell 88SE92xx chipset.  4 Internal Ports.
      https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PCI-E-PCI-Express-to-SATA3-0-4Port-SATA-III-6G-Expansion-Controller-Card-Adapter/264029216955?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
       
      2nd runs off the ASMedia ASM1061 chipset. 2 Internal/ 2 External Ports (selectable by jumpers)
      https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PCI-E-To-SATA3-PCI-E-SATA3-0-6Gb-s-the-SSD-Asmedia-Chip-Expansion-Card-ASM1061/191572577652?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
       
      The hack is running stable no issues on 10.4.2 with an i7 8700k ASUS Maximus X Code as iMac 18,3
       
      However, I wanted to add eSATA ports for some older drive enclosures I own, and some extra internal SATA ports as I've used all the SATA ports on the Motherboard.
      The 1st Marvell actually works OOB in Mac OSX.  No kexts needed.  Speeds seem good (350R/400W on an SSD 80R/W on a 5400 HDD)
       
      However, a few things don't seem perfect.
      1) the AHCI version is 1.0.  I imagine this could and should be a newer version? 1.2 or 1.31? If it should be updated, is this something only able to be flashed from a Windows OS?
      2) It can't be used as a boot option.  the Maximus doesn't recognise it as a startup option.  Is this a possible AHCI version firmware issue?  Is booting ever possible from these controllers? 
      3) TRIM was disabled in system profile. I know it automatically worked OOB for my NVME2 drives connected to the motherboard,  But to enable Trim on an SSD 860 EVO I needed to submit the terminal command:
      sudo trimforce enable
       
      Now the second ASMedia controller I haven't been able to get to work.  I've switched the jumpers (not sure which position is the 1,2,3) so I've made it so that one internal and one external will operate to test the card.
       
      System profiler sees the card like all the others as a "Generic AHCI Controller" with AHCI version 1.20 supported.
      However, I cannot get any drive to be recognised in the eSATA ports.  I haven't tested the internal ports as I don't need these.
       
      I've attempted using two kexts (attached) AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA.kext and AHCIPortInjector.kext
      When I use AHCIPortInjector.kext the SATA device is recognised in system profiler as an ASM1062.  However no drive works with this kext.  And reading the chip itself on the card it says ASM1061.  So not sure why it's preferring the 1062 entry over the 1061 since both are present in the kext.
       
      When I use AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA.kext that SATA device is not recognised at all in the system profiler.  It disappears.
       
      I'm not using a custom DSDT for this motherboard and I've attached my config.plist if anyone has some insight on either cards.
       
      Cheers,
      Shark

      iMessage Fixer is an application which helps you to completely reset your iMessage and FaceTime settings. This app will remove all the preferences related to iMessage and iCloud account from your system and it will also remove the NetworkInterface preferences from your system, so please use with caution. If you are having activation issues with iMessage, this application is not the answer but if you already activated iMessage on your Mac or Hack and the Messages is acting up you can use this app to fix it.
       
      Your iMessage history will be erased and you might need to sing back in in iMessage and FaceTime.
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      This is a quick guide on how to fix iMessage/Messages and FaceTime:
      There are other issues that can result in imessage/Messages and FaceTime not working properly like using a blacklisted Serial Number or MLB or SmUUID or simply an unactivated AppleID. If that's the case you need to use Clover Configurator 5.2.0.1 (or newer version) to rebuild your SMBIOS data with the most updated details like shown in the picture below:
       

       
      All you have to do is to select the SMBIOS section and then form the SMBIOS selector choose the most compatible SMBIOS with your hardware:
       

       
      Then you need to select the RtVariable section to generate the MLB based on your SMBIOS data and then just click the Generate button next to ROM to automatically generate the MLB and ROM ID based on your SMBIOS and then copy/paste the MLB from the newly generated info into the MLB box next to the ROM filed. Save your new config.plist
       

       
      Once you did the steps above and save the config, close Clover Configurator and the run the iMessage Fixer app and then reboot the computer, once macOS is loaded, login into iMessage or Messages using your AppleID and hopefully you can activate your iMessage and FaceTime.

      Important Note:
      If you already signed in AppStore or iCloud using your current config.plist you might need to remove that device from iCloud in order to prevent the Account Lock Up by Apple because once you change the Serial Number, MLB and SmUUID Apple's server will lock your account in order to protect your data and you need to rest the password for your AppleID.

      I hope you find this helpful.
      Cheers

      Hello there,
       
      I'm been seeing a message on my hackintosh since I've updated to High Sierra, and I thought that it was related to the OS version.
       
      The message says the following:
       

       
       
      This is displayed when I first log in my desktop (directly with the Finder Application), and whatever that uses Finder Services (choosing a file or location, for example), in every application once from it's opened.
       
      I have updated my other partition to Mojave, and I have the same problem there.
       
      For information, I don't use iCloud Services.
       
      So I don't know if it would be a configuration issue or something like that... I use Clover to boot, and the system is on my signature. The message is a little bit annoying. 
       
      Is anyone also facing this? 
       
      Any help will be appreciated.
       
      Thank you.
