I got an immediate KP (which I sort of expected, since the DSDT no longer matches the hardware). Then I renamed the DSDT to DSDT.aml.backup and now I have it to the point where if I boot from a UniBeast USB key then boot from the hard drive with -x -v, it will get most of the way through the boot then give me the dreaded "Waiting for boot device" forever. I haven't had time to troubleshoot very much yet, but here's what I set in the BIOS settings (from memory, as I'm at work):
SATA -> AHCI
HPET on (there's no longer a 32/64 option)
I also played with the boot order some, but I guess that isn't relevant so far, as I'm using F12 to choose the USB to boot from.
Any pointers/hints are greatly appreciated!
