    Tutorial: Resolving Video Card Issues

    Hola amigo, I have a Gainward 9400GT, a Palit 9500GT and a Zotac GTX260. I don't use a EFI-String (devices-properties) in com.apple.Boot.plist. I have no graphic card related stuff in the DSDT. The PCI Root UID in the DSDT is 1 for the GA-EP45-DS3 and 0 for the MSI P55M-GD45. In com.apple.Boot.plist I've configured the PCI Root UID with: <key>PCIRootUID</key> <string>x</string> x=1 for Gigabyte and x=0 for MSI. If you change the PCI Root UID code in the DSDT back to: Name (_UID, One) or Name (_UID, Zero) then the Booter can detect the UID value automatically. I don't use a ROM file in Extra. With GraphicsEnabler=Yes all three cards are working. So at the end I only take care of the PCI Root UID value, the rest works automatically. Maybe this is different for a 9800 :confused: Does the card work, if you use a EFI-String? Asere

    Speedstep Issues

    Hmmm, I'm very curious now whether the Chameleon RC5pre8 is really that fast. Theoretically they should be equal leaving away the memory detection. So I've measured the time OS X needs to display the Login Window. I started measuring the time at the moment Chameleon hands over control to the OS X kernel (Wait=Yes -> Keystroke = start). Here are the times using Chameleon RC5pre8 25.4 sec 23.5 sec 23.6 sec 23.8 sec After that I measured my Booter v 1.1.8 23.2 sec 23.0 sec 23.3 sec 21.9 sec And one again Chameleon RC5pre8 23.4 sec 22.9 sec 23.6 sec So... both performing equal on my i7 system. My Booter itself is a tick slower of course, because it must readout the SPD eeproms using SMBUS serial I2C protocol. Do you really experience a huge difference? And how much is the difference for you?

    Of course... here it is
  5. I've taken the "BAT" script from DigitalDJ and the latest HFS drivers for Windows from the BootCamp 3.1 Update and made this liitle package. Download it, uncompress it. The open a command prompt as Administrator (Start -> Accessories/Zubehör -> cmd and then right mouse click the cmd). Change into the extracted directory "AppleBootCamp3.1_HFS" using "cd" and then run the installer script "install_or_remove_hfs.bat" and follow the instructions. Reboot and you will have read-only access to your HFS+ drives. I have Win7 64Bit with all updates and for me it does work. I can read all my HFS drives. Just to be sure, here are the SHA hashes of the drivers: 228e91cf5fd1995e821a9e41b2d132d710257bde AppleBootCamp3.1_HFS.zip afdbfa47a7663d10862c3475565b21242c8badb8 AMD64/AppleHFS.sys 91fada2e45c0435168c74010decb224d43773539 AMD64/AppleMNT.sys 8a41a0cd88e007a61a2fddeae4b198884e6541de x86/AppleHFS.sys d92cd54150a63e097f118b86a7a27a7cf2a26b54 x86/AppleMNT.sys

    How many is running Dual Video Cards?

    If you gonna use two cards and if you have a Gigabyte mainboard, then make sure, that you configure "Init Display First" = PEG2 in the BIOS and use the gfx card in the second slot as your main gfx card. Only in this way it worked for me.

    You are right, shutdown is not a Booter issue. You can fix it in the DSDT by adding the green code: Scope (\) { Name (PICF, Zero) Method (_PIC, 1, NotSerialized) { Store (Arg0, PICF) } } [COLOR="Green"] OperationRegion (PMRS, SystemIO, 0x0430, One) Field (PMRS, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { , 4, SLPE, 1 } [/COLOR] Method (_PTS, 1, NotSerialized) { Or (Arg0, 0xF0, Local0) Store (Local0, DBG1) OSTP () If (LEqual (Arg0, One)) {} If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x03)) {} If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05)) { Store (ESMI, Local0) And (Local0, 0xFB, Local0) Store (Local0, ESMI) Store (0x99, SMIP) [COLOR="Green"]Store (Zero, SLPE) Sleep (0x10)[/COLOR] } If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x04)) { If (LNot (PICF)) { Sleep (0x64) } } }

    Processor Interconnect Speed refers to the QPI Link. Only the Nehalem i7 have an QPI. The Lynnfield i7 and i5 don't have a QPI Link. The northbridge/memory controller/pci-e... are on-chip and the P55 PCH is connect through a "normal" DMI Link (northbridge<->southbridge). Lets see if I can figure out the relevant info to setup SMbusspeed automatically. Of course it's possible to detect ECC RAM. Do you know how to tell OS X about the ECC RAM? SMBIOS...???

    The speed is correct. It always varies a little bit due to the TSC-frequency-measuring algorithm. There is no way to read the FSB speed directly, so the Booter measures the TSC-freq using a RTC Timer. But the RTC Timer is not that exact! Knowing the TSC-freq you can calculate all the other freqs in the system, like CPU, FSB, Memory... I guess that this is normal. No idea how Windows determines the Platform UUID. OS X uses a SHA hashed system-id. No idea, why. I've tried the system-type=2 and I got the battery stuff in Preferences/Energy Saver. I guess this issues could be resolved with some DSDT finetuning.

    Yes. Only: <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> in com.apple.Boot.plist. No Efistring (devices-properties) and no gfx related stuff in the DSDT.

    No, you don't need to update it every time. Only if you are still using the pre Chameleon RC4 ones. I've made only one change to the Chameleon RC4 boot0 & boot1h, I've disabled verbosity.

    Hi, this is strange! I can boot 10.6.2 in 32Bit and 64Bit without problems. What does KP? Can you try to boot in verbose mode (and use Wait=Yes) to see what Chameleon says.

    Check the PCI Root UID. The Booter uses/determines one and this must match with the UID used in the DSDT.
