Spoke too early... :\ MY ZZZ is still dirty.
Same here, and regular hard hangs. Have turned it off for now.

My MacPro 2,1 is faultlessly running OS X 10.8 (Final) with Chameleon installed on an IDE HD using the DVD cable. However, when I command:

Quote
sudo bless --folder /Volumes/Boot --file /Volumes/Boot/boot --setBoot --legacy

Terminal replies with:

Quote
Legacy mode not supported on this system

This warning did not appear with the DP or GM versions of Mountain Lion.

I would sincerely appreciate any help.

Your Mac is already booting in legacy mode with chameleon.
Therefore, that command doesn't work. No need to run that command again.
To use that command, you have to boot OS X (Lion, Snow Leopard, Leopard & Tiger) via EFI.

Use the dsdt.aml attached and chameleon 2.1svn 2034, this will fix sleep issues
YES THIS ONE WORKS FLAWLESSLY for me at least since one week. DVD player, Aperture, sleep (without the 7300),
I am really surprised and happy about this 2.1svn 2034. Not willing to move anywhere else since i tested it !
Hope it's the same for all of you. (Macpro 1.1/2.1, SSDs, AMD 6800, 16GB Ram, Dual screen config).
Excellent.
Now trying to get all this setup with a triple boot to be able to choose simply at startup between:

win7 (bootcamp) / MacOS ML (legacy) / MacOS Lion or SL (native)

If anyone has some hints on this I would appreciate. Thanks ! (tried refit, no success so far).
Fabio.


In org.chameleon.Boot.plist add

   <key>UseKernelCache</key>
   <string>Yes</string>

In smbios.plist identify your mac as 3.1

<key>SMproductname</key>
        <string>MacPro3,1</string>
        <key>SMsystemversion</key>
        <string>1.0</string>
        <key>SMboardproduct</key>
        <string>Mac-F42C88C8</string>
        <key>SMbiosversion</key>

Thank you, chromafile. However, how should I proceed in order to boot automatically with Chameleon without using the Option key to select the BOOT partition? If I don't press it at startup, the system does not recognize as bootable the HD with ML and the process stops with the grey Forbidden sign...

Sound like PRAM is messed up. I suggest you reset PRAM, boot into supported OS X (if you still have it) and run the bless command.
Not sure if you can use the bless command with Lion or SL install DVD. If they works, you don't need to install Lion or Snow Leopard.
Anyway, I still have Snow Leopard just in case Wink

I use your dsdt and last build of chameleon 2047 everything is working great.

I love this forum.

Hmm, after faking my Mac to be MacPro 3,1 i still get those erros:

sudo tail /var/log/zzz.log

Tue Aug 21 20:10:29 201 [SleepServicesD] /SourceCache/SleepServicesD_executables/SleepServicesD-1.43/SleepServicesD/ModeConfig.m:41 Waiting for IOPlatformPluginFamily to load ...
Tue Aug 21 20:10:30 201 [SleepServicesD] /SourceCache/SleepServicesD_executables/SleepServicesD-1.43/SleepServicesD/PowerStateTracker.m:129 Platform not supported

How about you - and, what SMC is reported? My is still the same as from MacPro 1,1:

ioreg -l | grep smc-version
 "smc-version" = "1.7f10"

Need more time to say if sleep problem is away - but i guess not, cause of errors in zzz.log about unsupported Platform.

And after two days, the crashes on awakening are back, usually about 45 secs into the waking bit...

Hi all,

Great work here so far. Just a few questions before I dig in and start the install.
Has anyone done this successfully booting from the extra SATA ports (with DSDT.aml changes) and being able to see/use the apple raid card in 10.8 (I have my 4 internal drive sleds connected to this card in a raid 5 set)
Whilst I have not seen any posts to confirm this, does the Radeon HD 5770 still support multiple displays after this procedure?

Regards, John.
