Great post but nowhere in it or your profile do you detail which revision of the GA-Z77-DS3H
you have. May seem trivial but there are differences between the 1.0 and 1.1 boards.
btw, I have a 1.0 with firmware 11a; upgraded from F9 back in June.
A few observations.
Lots of posts related to conflicts involving the ALXEthernet kext & the GA-Z77-DS3H mobo.
- Here is one going back almost 3 years ago: LINK .
I'm using "AtherosL1cEthernet.kext" with zero problems.
GA-Z77-DS3H ver. 1.0 and ver. 1.1 are not exactly the same mobo. What...
your configuration "GA-Z77-DS3H Rev1.0.mb" selects the "ALXEthernet.kext" to install.
Under Mavericks, this kext caused system freezes for a lot of us. see thread
The solution was install "AtherosL1cEthernet.kext" instead.
Has "ALXEthernet.kext" been updated to work properly with the...
late to the party here but this bug didn't rear its head until I did a Mavericks update and ran MB again. Don't even remember selecting the "ALXEthernet.kext" but there it was!
Big Thank-You to sfr2.
Fixed system freezing on my v1.0 (11f)!!
In under 5 mins. I had the...
Found this solution for the same problem on my v1.0 (11f) mobo freezing up when transferring data via ethernet.
Removed the "ALXEthernet.kext" & replaced it with "AtherosL1cEthernet.kext" per the above and no more crashes. :thumbup:
d/l'd several GB of data last night without a hitch...
charlie126: Try a different system ID. Also, check your BIOS to be sure on-board graohics is Enabled and is first choice. I have a v1.0 (11f), board so my settings wouldn't apply to yours.
btw bumbuy, you list a Z97 mobo (Haswell), completely different from a Z77 series.
I couldn't offer you...
Neotil, thanks for the info. I have the same setup as yours except I will be adding
a Syba SI-PEX40064 4-port SATA-3 card (Marvell 88SE9215) for non-boot drives.
In your Multi-Beast settings you list:
Drivers > Disk > 3rd Party SATA

Got a Syba SD-PEX30009 PCI-e 1394B/1394A card from Amazon Warehouse Deals ($18).
Installed tonight and everything tested OK. Sleep and Wake now working perfectly
and I've got FW800 again, yipeeee :crazy:
fyi, the card's chipset is the TI XIO2213.
Article: Quick guide to configuring the UEFI on Gigabyte's 7-series LGA-1155 motherboards
"... Note that all of Gigabyte’s 7-series LGA-1155 boards have AHCI enabled by default ..."
Another "not so" example. GA-Z77-DS3H v1.0/F6 purchased 12/09/2012, AHCI not enabled.
Upgrade to F9 and...
See the last post was December 17th, 2012 and still no solution from Gigabyte.
Here's my 'report':
The problem also appeared on my GA-Z77-DS3H v1.0 F9 using a Dynex FW800/400 PCIe card with an
LSI L-FW643E-6 8P Chipset. This card worked flawlessly on a P35-DS3L/Q9550 rig under 10.4 -...
