MB 2006 shows Firewire symbol during AHT, Disable Fw in EFI?
When doing the apple diagnostics (AHT) it shows inmediately the Firewire symbol moving slowly arround on the screen. I presume this means the problem is the firewire port. So after all possible resets and disc utils have failed I would like to disable the Fw in the bios (EFI). Don't know how, I'm stuck here, who has some advice?
The MB has been assembled out of parts of 3 different deceased MB's. The motherboard and cpu are late 2006 2.0 GHZ. Everything works fine but 4 out of ten it either crashes after a while or it fails to boot normaly.
Many thanks in advance for any advice or hint that helps me forward with my hobby project :)
It's running Version 10.6.8. The AHT version I'm not sure about, it seems to run from the snowleopard installation disc. But I'll find out.
It's indeed just a single user setup.
Last night I repasted the heatsink with Artic cause it was running awfully hot. Probably I was a bit to sparse on the artic the first time.
I look in updating the EFI and removing the IO Firewire extensions and post my findings.
Thanks or your sharing your knowledge !
Just checked and it appears I don't need update:
SMC-versie (systeem): 1.4f12
Also removed the fire wire extensions, unfortunately without improvement.
Is this a good question?
