What DSDT are you using? Do Not use the DSDT from any other version of BIOS(old one).timbck2 said:I installed the UEFI BIOS on one of my GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 systems last night, and it's an unmitigated disaster so far. 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!
Check it out: you have to turn off Erp, turn off Marvell stuff, turn off super IO Config (for LPTE, COM). In power management don't use anything except HPET and instant power on.timbck2 said:I did drop the DSDT by renaming it in /Extra to "DSDT.aml.backup". I'll try booting with DSDT=/dev/null in Chimera this evening. Thanks.
