    Default Snow Install Causes CMOS Reset?!?

    Hey All, my first post here so I'll get the particulars out of the way. I've got a Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR, Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33GHz, EVGA 9500GT 1GB, Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) and 2 Seagate 1TB drives. I've gotten a sweet vanilla Leopard install that had no issues (when I had a 7300GT in there, took some work with the 9500GT) but Snow was a different beast (no pun intended) altogether. After days of work and tuts from just about every OSx86 site Google had to offer I was finally able to get it installed only to reboot and find my CMOS completely reset.

    Now I've noticed no one else seems to mention this with their builds so I assume its gotta be something I'm doing wrong. Has anyone got any ideas, and/or links to build tuts using similar hardware? I've since gone back to Leopard since its stable, but I've so far enjoyed Snow on my MBP and would really like to get it going on my Hackintosh. The disc is retail BTW. And thanks for any and all help, its appreciated!

    I have a different Gigabyte motherboard and in my case fixing RTC entry in DSDT.aml helped. You might try this route.

    Yes, modify your DSDT.dsl (Decompiled DSDT) by changing something similar to:

    Code:
    Device (RTC)
    {
      Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00"))
      Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate ()
      {
         IO (Decode16,
         0x0070,             // Range Minimum
         0x0070,             // Range Maximum
         0x00,               // Alignment
         0x08,               // Length
         )
       })
    }
    Or

    Code:
    Device (RTC)
    {
      Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00"))
      Name (_CRS, ResourceTemplate ()
      {
         IO (Decode16,
         0x0070,             // Range Minimum
         0x0070,             // Range Maximum
         0x00,               // Alignment
         0x04,               // Length
         )
       })
    }
    Whatever the number may originally be on this line:
    Code:
    0x0*,               // Length
    You must make it so that it reads:
    Code:
    0x02,               // Length
    And this will stop the CMOS reset
