  1. 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
  2. Made version 1.1.9 to ease problems caused by wrong nVidia NVCAP values.
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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) } } }
  7. 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...???
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Coño... no sé pq te he mandado un correo, hermano. Tu te lo sabes mejor q yo :cool:
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Check the PCI Root UID. The Booter uses/determines one and this must match with the UID used in the DSDT.
  14. I've made it to have vanilla Apple CPU Powermanagement (aka Speedstep) working. The original Gigabyte SSDT does not work together with OS X, so I had to modify it. It's now part of the DSDT and therefore I use DropSSDT=yes. In contrast, the SSDT of the MSI P55M-GD45 does work under OS X.
  15. @downlord & @Danica Talos. I have 2 Systems: a MSI-P55M-GD45 + i7 860 and my old GA-EP45-DS3 + Q9550. The i7 runs 10.6.2 and the other system 10.6.x + 10.5.8. All three installations (i7 & 10.6.2 @ 32&64Bit, Q9550 & 10.5.8 & 10.6.2) are booting and running fine without any issues. Right now I've testet the Q9550 + 10.5.8 a lot. I did some restarts, shutdowns, sleep/wakeups. It always boots up fine. I've made a filesystem check under OS X. Filesystem is OK, so I have no corrupted files. At least for me it does work as expected. My 10.5.8 installation is nothing special. I started with this HD on a Mac mini with 10.5.0, switched to Efix and then to Chameleon. Always made all OS updates as they came available. Keep in mind that BIOS settings, the Booter, the com.apple.Boot.plist, the smbios.plist, the extra kernel extensions and last but not least the DSDT itself... all these stuff plays together to give you stable and running system. Without knowing about all these components, it's hard to say something reliable. You can see my BIOS settings in my blog. It use my Booter v1.1.8. The only extra kernel extensions I'm using are: fakesmc.kext/IONetworking.kext and fakesmc.kect/LegacyHDA.kext. Find the content of my Booter USB-stick below.
  16. Bought a used BT-120 at eBay. Using it for my Magic Mouse. Works absolutely perfect under OS X, Linux and Win7, although Multitouch works only under OS X, but this is not BT related.
  17. Hi folks, once again I'm very busy due my job at the moment. Just want announce a new version of my Booter. Look at the first page for the changes. I will try to answer the older posts at the weekend. So long
  18. Thanks for pointing me to this type. It's corrected now. BTW, I have a nVidia GTX260 (Zotac 2xDVI) and a passive 9500GT. Both are working flawless with just GraphicsEnabler=Yes in com.apple.Boot.plist.
  19. Hmmm.... on my two system the Platform UUID under OS X is equal in 32Bit & 64Bit. I'm using the UUID provided by the mainboard SMBIOS.
  20. Use system-id=No in com.apple.Boot.plist. EfiPlatformSystemID isn't supported anymore. I've changed first page accordingly.
  21.
