    Default Multicore Synch Problem for Snow Leo 10.6.3! Help!!!! :)

    I need some help please.
    My current sys/configuration is: Asus P5E-VM DO (Intel ich9do, Q35 chipset) with AHCI enabled, Intel Q6600 QuadCore, 4GB DDR2 SDRAM dual channel 800Mhz,
    HDD1: Sata Intel X25 SSD 40GB, HDD2: Sata Seagate 7200 500GB, DVD-RAM: IDE (LG), GfxCard: GeForce 8400gs, PSU: Zalman ZM550-HP (Active PFC)
    Bought retail DVD but didn't work with Boot 132 method. Installed SnowOSx 3.6 on, and upgraded to 10.6.3. Installed Chameleon 2.0 RC4 on the EFI partition.
    Patched DSDT. I am using kexts: Ev0reboot, fakesmc, IOATAFamily (with AppleIntelPIIXATA), LegacyAppleAHCIPort, LegacyAppleIntelPIIXATA, LegacyIOAHCIBlockStorage, LegacyJMicronATA, NullCPUPowerManagement
    disk0: is GUID partitioned as follows: 1. EFI (209.7MB) 2. JHFS+ (39.7 GB)
    disk1: is MBR Partitioned as follows: 1. NTFS (52.1GB) 2. Unknown (312.6MB) 3. NTFS (447.7GB)
    SnowLeopard is installed on: disk0s2
    WinXP is installed on: disk1s1
    Current com.apple.Boot.plist config: Kernel Flags: arch=i386, cpus=1 SMBIOSdefaults: yes, GraphicsEnabler: yes

    Problem is: Unless I use the "cpus=1" kernel flag, all hell breaks lose, meaning:
    1. FireWire not recognized.
    2. if I try to unmount any disk1 partitions it takes forever, saying unmounting:.... and just hanging there
    3. disk1 takes a long time to recognize-everytime I access NTFS partitions they get corrupted and they need chkdsk /f afterwards from windows even though they are ReadOnly
    4. If I try to use disk utility to make any changes it just hangs
    I am assuming there are other problems as well causd by this...


    Also, regardless of the cpus setting, the power button does not work. and if I select the power button to cause
    computer to go to sleep from energy options, when I press it, it "goes to sleep" but with the fans all working at full speed
    and also there is no way to wake it up

    my other problem is that I can't use diskutil to convert disk1s2 to HFS+ It gives me an error saying "could not modify partition map (-9986)"
    it is importand that disk1s2 is HFS+ so that I can install Chameleon on it and be able to dual boot between disk0 (MacOSX) and disk1 (WinXP)

    My question is: should I try to fix those problems one by one while on cpus=4? (all 4 problems mentioned above) Or should I focus
    on fixing the cpus problem per se?

    can you please suggest a way to make full use of my quad core and not just 1 core?

    Amongst many others these are what I tried:
    Different kext combinations
    I tried Voodoo mach_kernel and just gave me immediately a kernel panic.
    I erased AppleHPET and made firewire work but then system became crazy unstable so I had to place it back

    Thanks in advance

    P.S. A guy on IRC told me that it is a PSU fan problem and that I should change from 12cm to a 8cm-fan-PSU because this somehow messes up with DSDT. What do you guys think?

    Try removing SMBIOS flag, and check your DSDT to see if it is patched correctly. About changing the fan on the PSU lol. Hope this helps

    you are choosing too much kext for your chipset. Use only ioatafamily (1,2mb size ?), it is a package already, and then Ev0reboot, fakesmc, Disabler.
    for that cpus=1 , try pceefi v10.6 boot file, just replace your current boot file.
    your pc capable to run vanilla 64 smoothly (default kernel), just need to set your bios corectly (ACPI enable,HPET enable, disable executebit support, disable cpud limit ) and yes, dsdt is help a lot.
    For your video card try ATYinit.kext, it will inject the value of your card vendor and vid ram size correctly.
    remember do not select too much kext, it will just confuse the boot process and you to fix it.
    goodluck
