nForce OS X Mavericks (10.9) APP STORE DOWNLOAD INSTALL GUIDE on a Series 6 or 7 nForce chipset / Intel CPU MOBO

Recommended Posts

Hi tickerzoo,

 

Thanks for the emailed DSDT.aml file.....your last post is now clears up your previous post for me.......I want to see how your 680i DSDT differs from my 650i DSDT because iLeopod's 680i was never very stable and despite many attempts at DSDT modding, he could not get it to sleep and wake properly.......

 

verdant

Yes 680i sli is not stable and sleep is still an issue.But verdant why i am getting black screen on nvidia 8600GT 512 MB i followed your guide but i get black screen always. That keeps me worried.

Focus on getting OS X up and running in simple VESA mode, i.e. with all NV* and Ge* kexts temporarily removed from /S/L/E and once you confirm that it is running 100% OK apart from the graphics side, then graphics can be sorted out via a patched DSDT.aml file hopefully...... 

 

Does the black screen( monitor goes off) with the system is working (hdd reading, sounds) happen when you set GraphicsEnabler=Yes for your nvidia 8600GT 512 MB?

 

If so, run IORegistryExplorer (Google is your friend) and use "Save a Copy As" to save your IOReg output as a "Username"Mac Pro.ioreg file, then send me a download link for this file and your DSDT.aml file....

 

Extract your original DSDT.aml file off the PC using the Ubuntu Live DVD, plug in a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive and then go to the Terminal and type either
 


for Ubuntu 11.xx and later, or
 

for Ubuntu 10.xx or earlier. In either case, the extracted DSDT.aml file should have been saved on the USB flash drive, for later decompiling, patching and recompiling using iasl or iasl based tools, so send me a download link for your extracted DSDT.aml file....

Hi Verdant,

 Thanks for your prompt reply. I have 680i SLI and I will send you the required DSDT and ioreg files. As you have told once I remove the NV* and Ge* the system working fine with minimal graphics without acceleration.When I use GE=yes the system screen goes black leaving the cpu running. I will send the download link soon.

Hi Verdant ,

 

this might be a silly question, is there any way we can use nvenet.kext inside the

IONetworkingFamily.kext? for our Nforce Lan?

 

or is this a newer kext for nforce/nvidia ethernet? 

 

i say this as i have it working fine on a zotac 9300 board. Which is also nvidia ethernet.

@ tickerzoo

 

The nvenet.kext inside OS X Mavericks IONetworkingFamily.kext Plugins folder, as in previous OS X versions, is AFAIK is only for Ethernet/LAN on nForce MCP73/MCP79 systems.

 

Other nForce chipset MOBOs need to use the nForceLAN.0.64.5.kext.

 

The information I have seen on the Zotac GeForce 9300-ITX MOBO says it has the Realtek RTL8211CL Gigabit Ethernet chipset?

@ Frank Moolah

 

Thanks.........you could get a cheap used nForce + Intel CPU MOBO off eBay to put the fun back into your "hackintoshing"....... :wink_anim:

 

I still have/want to find some time to continue the guide but my "real life" work is very time-demanding at present......... :(

If you have OS X already installed and running, then install and run IORegistryExplorer (Google is your friend) and use "Save a Copy As" to save your IOReg output as a "Username"Mac Pro.ioreg file, then send me a download link for this file and your DSDT.aml file....

 

You can extract your original DSDT.aml file off the PC by using the Ubuntu Live DVD and plugging in a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive, and then going to the Terminal and typing either
 

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT > DSDT.aml


for Ubuntu 11.xx and later, or
 

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"sudo cat /proc/acpi/dsdt > DSDT.aml


for Ubuntu 10.xx or earlier. In either case, the extracted DSDT.aml file should have been saved on the USB flash drive, for later decompiling, patching and recompiling using iasl or iasl based tools, so send me a download link for your extracted DSDT.aml file....

As you say you are a noob when it comes to DSDT editing, then:

 

1. Let me know if you can make a Ubuntu Live DVD and the extract your original DSDT.aml file off the PC using it, plugging in a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive and then going to the Terminal and type either

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"
sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT > DSDT.aml

for Ubuntu 11.xx and later, or

cd /media/"Volume name of the USB flash drive"
sudo cat /proc/acpi/dsdt > DSDT.aml

for Ubuntu 10.xx or earlier.

 

In either case, the extracted DSDT.aml file should have been saved on the USB flash drive, for later decompiling, patching and recompiling using iasl or iasl based tools.

 

2. Let me know if you can find, install and run IORegistryExplorer (Google is your friend) and use "Save a Copy As" to save your IOReg output as a "Username"Mac Pro.ioreg file.

 

3. Install Evosx86 Team's Snow Leopard x64 version v1.1 of the UNIX lspci utility which works with OS X Mavericks:

lspci V1.1.pkg.zip

Then restart OS X and type in Terminal:

lspci -b -nn

and export the output as a text file and save it.

 

Finally, give me a download link for your extracted DSDT.aml file, "Username"Mac Pro.ioreg file, and lspci output text file....

 

This way I can help you out........:)

I will check if they are readable as soon as I can........any progress with IOReg and lspci output files?

The IOReg and lspci files are OK to use, and although aida64  extreme saved the dsdt and ssdt files  with .bin extensions, I am able to read them by changing the extension to .aml.....:)

 

I will sort out your DSDT file as soon as I have some free time.....

 

BTW is your graphics card working OK in OS X Mavericks with GraphicsEnabler = Yes?

I used some video kext from dp8 so i would say no not natively and after installing the kext from dp8 and does work and but i would like graphics working with original 10.9 kexts if possible

I have PM'd you new DSDT.aml files with a different HPET section (same as my DSDT) so that you can now hopefully use OS X natural power management without the kernel panic you experienced.......see post #5 in this topic on what else to do........this includes removing the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from S/L/E........then go to /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup and delete all the files within Startup.....and boot with -v -f......

      nForce OS X El Capitan (OS X 10.11.6) APP STORE DOWNLOAD INSTALL GUIDE
      on a Series 6 or 7 nForce chipset / Intel CPU MOBO
      (and some other BIOS-based MOBOs as well, e.g. Asus P5Q, P5Q Pro, P5Q-E, P5Q Deluxe)
       
      *************************************************************
      INTRODUCTION
      *************************************************************
       
      A. Motherboard and Chipset Applicability:
       
      1. Series 6 or 7 nForce chipset / Intel CPU MOBOs
       
      This guide is primarily focussed on installing and running OS X El Capitan on a Series 6 or 7 nForce chipset / Intel CPU BIOS-based MOBOs with an nVidia graphics card.
       
      {a} This is simply because I have an Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus  650i nForce chipset + Intel Q6600 CPU MOBO + GeForce 9800GT 512MB graphics card........but what works for the 650i should and invariably does work for the 650i Ultra, 680i, 750i, 780i, 790i, and 790i Ultra.....hence my topic tags....
       
      {b} Note that in my topic tags, I say that this guide may only possibly be applicable to the 630i chipset.
      This is because it is still my current understanding is that the following nForce chipsets are not fully AHCI compliant and so can be used with imk's 64bit version (or subsequent versions of the AppleNForceATA.kext, such Tora Chi Yo's AppleNforceATA 1.0.6 version based on the AnV 1.0.4 32/64 Version etc.):
       
      nForce 430/410 (MCP51),
      nForce 590/570/550/680i/650i/780i/750i/790i (MCP55)
      nForce 430/405/400 (MCP61); nForce 560/520 (MCP65)
      nForce 630a (MCP67)
       
      Furthermore, the MOBOs using one of these nForce chipsets usually have the BIOS option to set the enable nForce SATA Controller and require SATA RAID to be Enabled (implicitly enabling AHCI mode) even when not running a RAID system, for the NForceATA.kext to work.
      In contrast, the following nForce chipsets are/may be fully-AHCI compliant and so do not/may not work with the AppleNForceATA.kext:
      nForce 560/520 (MCP65) and nForce 630a (MCP67); nForce 630i/620i/610i (MCP73), nForce 730a/720a/710a (MCP78) and nForce ION (MCP79) nForce chipsets (MCP65 and higher) support the advanced SATA features in the AHCI standard, such as NCQ etc.
      The MOBOs using one of these nForce chipsets usually have the BIOS option to set the nForce SATA Controllers to "AHCI Mode" instead of "IDE Mode".
       
      {c} As I use an nVidia graphics card, the guide is naturally written from an nVidia perspective; nevertheless, I hope that owners of a Series 6 or 7 nForce chipset / Intel CPU MOBO with an ATI graphics card will use it too.
       
      For help with:
      (i) AMD/ATI graphics cards, IM is your friend......
      (ii) For help with mixed multiple AMD/ATI and/or nVidia graphics cards and /or multiple displays, Google is your friend......e.g. aqua-mac, netkas, and later others.......
       
       
      2. Non-nForce chipset + Intel CPU MOBOs
       
      Non-nForce chipset + Intel CPU MOBOs users may also be able to use the guide, or at least also find it interesting and even helpful in places too.......
       
      I say this because:
       
      {a} Each reader's MOBO brand/model typically has to have its own custom setup for DSDT/audio/networking/video etc.
       
      {b} It is primarily the need for the AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext in /Extra/Extensions/ or in /System/Library/ Extensions/ and nForceLAN.0.64.5.kext in /System/Library/ Extensions/, as well not being able to use a SleepEnabler.kext and having issues with sleep that distinguishes nForce chipset + Intel CPU MOBOs from non-nForce chipset + Intel CPU MOBOs rather than the basic procedures for installing OS X.........
       
      Hence,  I have also used my USB installer (produced using this guide) with just a DSDT.aml file swap (as any nForce chipset-specific kexts in /System/Library/Extensions are not loaded into the kernel when OS X is running on a non-nForce chipset MOBO) to suit each MOBO, to install OS X 10.11.6 onto my Asus P5Q, P5Q Pro, P5Q-E and P5Q Deluxe MOBOs......
       
       
      3. Bootloader Choice 
       
      Firstly, may I say that I am very pleased with all the parallel progress being made with the Clover and Enoch (Chameleon) boot loaders as they both allow OS X El Capitan and Mac OS Sierra etc. to be booted on PCs.......  
       
      However,  as the user of multiple BIOS-based 'legacy LGA775' MOBOs, I am especially thankful for the efforts of ErmaC and Micky1979 (not forgetting the original efforts of all the Chameleon team) in continuing to develop the Enoch (Chameleon) boot loader to the extent that it can successfully boot OS X El Capitan (and Mac OS Sierra) on BIOS MOBOs, and it is the boot loader (r2839) that I am currently using for OS X El Capitan.
       
      My primary reason for using the Enoch (Chameleon) boot loader to boot OS X 10.11.6 is that I previously used the Chameleon boot loader itself to boot OS X 10.5.8 through to OS X 10.10.5 (to which OS X 10.11.5 has now been added) all on a single MBR HDD and mostly mirrored on a single GPT HDD, along with Windows 7 and Linux on my Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus  650i MOBO.
       
      Nevertheless, if and when time allows, I will investigate the use of the Clover bootloader in legacy mode for comparison and interest. 
       
      ***************************************************************************************
       
      This will be a "live guide" that will evolve in length depending on:
       
      (i) my very limited free time (hence my only finding some free time now to install OS X 10.11.6 as my 'real life' is so busy    ) and
       
      (ii) the continued level of interest and need via posts in this topic from other 'die-hard' nForce chipset + Intel CPU MOBO users (whose nForce MOBOs simply refuse to 'die', preventing an upgrade excuse!    ), especially IM members who have followed my previous nForce install guides... 
       
      So, please read the current online "live" guide before attempting to follow it, even if you had previously followed an earlier version successfully.....

      Stage 1 construction will commence upon IM member request - I need to determine the level of 'need' for this guide before spending my time on it - I hope IM members understand....
