If you can only see the command line tool, then your pc most likely booted in single user mode. Check for -s boot flag and remove it, then it should work.

If you can't even enter any commands, then it's stuck during boot. In this case, check if it states anything interesting (kernel panic, ...) and check which kexts you used for boot.

I tried to boot from the USB stick, pressed F12, choice USB HDD from the quick boot menu, but nothing happent. Windows 7 is booting.
And i already have the AHCI mode in BIOS. What else do i have to modify into the BIOS settings, for my motherboard, which is Gigabyte GA EX58-UD5 ?
Thank you.
Do i need to use Empire EFI / i B O O T or something like that ? How do i find out if there ( on the USB stick ) is any boot loader or not ?

I will try to burn it on DVD DL , i hope i can manage to install it :)

Good Day All,

I upgraded to ML 10.8.2 I am using the Cruisar method and am having some audio issues. On my SL install I didn't need the audio kexts for my board but now I do. Is there a particular bootloader I need to get this method working again without the audio kexts. With the kexts installed it seems fine but doesn't activate the screensaver for some reason and the mouse is slightly jumpy. Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated. Been using my Hackintosh now for over 2 years trouble free. Thanks DD this is a great tool.

UD5 i7 920 3.5ghz


try this DSDT from the native power management thread http://www.insanelym...attach_id=65245
remove audio kexts as well. this did the trick for me. for some reason i lost audio recently (two days ago) from a 10.8.2 update (i could have sworn i was already on 10.8.2, found it to be rather weird)

depending on your needs, you may need to use ALC885_889a.kext as well as the DSDT if you want better inputs/outputs.

Would someone with a Fusion drive setup post the output from diskutil list or post the file from diskutil list > ~/Desktop/list.txt in Terminal?
I'd like to see if we can get HackInstaller to recognize the drives.

There are so many other things that need to be worked on in the script. I'll try to get something done in the next month or so. :worried_anim:

Ok, I figured out my problem. Had to put in the proper video drivers to boot... Now I'm upgraded properly to 10.8.2 but I seem to have lost the 'Start up automatically after a power failure' option in Energy Saver which results in wake up not working properly. I've tried multiple DSDTs (a couple from here, and the latest from tonymacx) but the option just isn't there. Am I missing something obvious?

System is i7 920, X58A-UD5, GTX 670 (upgraded from my hd4790 for CUDA).

Hi MAJ,

good to see that you're still in the game ;)
As I wrote above, I switched to the Clover bootloader that gives me 'insanely' fast boot times. You should dig into that and add it to your script if possible. I feel that this is going to be the future ;)

Has someone installed 10.8.3 yet? Any problems?

@TeraHz: Have you tried Cruisar's DSDT (link in my sig). Sleep is working fine for me with that DSDT.

I did it as always from the "software update menu" and no problem at all.Reboot,no kernel panics , no issues.

Maj is an artist,amazing script.

I have been using it for ages (from the very beginning) and never had the chance to say it public.Great work.

P.S : I run the chimera 2.0.1.pkg after the update, reboot and imessages working now fine as well.

HI all,
I was running 10.6.8 without any issue and decided to install Mountain Lion on my EX58-UD5.

I made a fresh install on an empty hard drive, using script 7.1 and all default values and faced a strange problem during the installation process: I successfully created a Mac OS X Base System boot disk on an USB HDD and installed from there 10.8.0 on my new hard disk.
But a the end of the installation, before the first reboot, I was unable to launch the script. Typing hackinstaller leads to an error saying the file system was read only.
I finally installed the kexts (menu #3) from my running 10.6 system onmy 10/8 hdd and successfully got a working 10.8.0 system. :)

I then installed the 10.8.3 combo update, and rerun the script as described by arobasefr hereabove.

So now I have working system, except for sleep:
Originally, sleep was not working: I got a black screen but the fans where still on.
So (as suggested in some previous posts) I removed NullCPUPowerManagement, reinstalled kext and rebuilt cache.
Now the system is correctly going to sleep (black screen + fan off) but when I hit the keyboard to wake up the machine, it reboots.
I tried to install the sleepenabler, but I only get a crash at startup (as if I used a wrong pmVersion= parameter. Maybe this is the cause of the problem, I did not set any pmVersion, should I set a specific value ?)

Any idea on how getting sleep working on my system ?

Thanks

Have you tried checking "Start up automatically after power failure" in Energy Saving prefs?

Thanks guys for your quick responses regarding the 10.8.3 update. I just installed it via software update, restarted and everything is fine. I didn't even rebuild the kernel cache or anything. I am using Clover as bootloader and as far as I understand, Clover is loading my kexts.

@iCore: I can only recommend my method. Using only FakeSMS and IONetworkingFamily kexts and the patched DSDT. Sleep and audio etc is working with that DSDT. See link in my sig.

Strangely I do not have this option :blink:
In the pref pane for Energy Saving, I only have "put hard disk to sleep", "wake for network access" and "allow power button to put computer to sleep"

If you don't want to patch your DSDT, maybe there's kext for that out there? I'm not sure because cruiSAr included that in his DSDT ;)

Good Day,

I too am using the Cruisar's DSDT but I cant seem to get audio working without the kexts with mountain lion. I can boot into the system but no audio shows at all, I have to use my imic. Any suggestions would be great. I am going to play with clover today as I have time, so if that seems to fix it I appologize for not tinkiering first. Hope all is well.

Hello all,

I messed around in my BIOS and Hard Drive setup (repartitioned and cloned a Windows drive - didn't touch Mountain Lion) and I somehow managed to lose the option to restart automatically after power failure. This now breaks sleep on my setup.

I'm at a loss as to what happened here and I can't seem to figure out how to recover the option. If anybody has any pointers, please let me know.

While attempting to fix this:
  • I updated to the latest Chimera
  • I didn't touch my dsdt.aml (I'm using one similar to Cruisar)
  • I didn't touch my smbios.plist
  • I did reinstall FakeSMC
I also recently upgraded to 10.8.3...

I keep a spare Mountain Lion partition for testing purpose. Since someone was encouraging us to try Clover, I did it a go. I followed the instructions I could find on the web the best I could but I end up with a kernel panic on boot (I copied over my dsdt.aml and configured my smbios settings to match what I already had in Chimera). If someone here had some success with it, perhaps it would be a good idea to share a couple of pointers, especially if you are using a heavily patched dsdt to minimize the number of kext you have to load. Couple of specific questions:
  • Are you letting clover generate the P and C states?
  • Have you been messing with custom UUID?
  • What SystemParemeters are you using?
  • If you have a dsdt configured, are you leaving the FixDsdtMask = 0x0 as is or should it be removed?
Clover look very promising so I will attempt to troubleshoot my install further when I get a chance (the first step will be to try to catch which kext is causing the KP before the system reboot). Any pointers to kickstart my clover learning process will be very much appreciated...

Hi,

I have updated my system to 10.8.3 using the combo updater. I also got an error message at the end of the install. but rebuilding caches using


the script and the install is happy. My system uses dsdt patching and native hda for 2.0 audio all works with 10.8.3.


I had to reapply my patch for non apple trim support using Chameleon SSD Optimizer.


also had to re-edit AppleGPUPowerManagement to re-enable best GPU performance.


Geekbench and Cinebench score, no real differecne from 10.8.2


Thanks


Jon

Thanks for the link.
I took your advice and grabbed d00d DSDT (As I have a i7 920 running at 2.6Ghz I used the DSDT.aml file from DSDT_GA_EX58_UD5_F9m_S3_920_W3520_v2.zip from d00d's topic).
Then, using MAJ hackinstaller script, I added the following kexts: (Maybe all of them are not useful, advice welcome)

Misc_Patches:
  • Fake SMC (mandatory)
  • AppleRTC (without this one, I had CMOS reset when restarting)
Networking:
  • IONetworkingFamily
Audio: (With this config and d00d's DSDT I have audio through the "internal speaker" device)
  • ALC885_889a
  • AppleHDA
  • HDAEnabler
Ata:
  • IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector (??)
  • JMicron36xeSATA (probably useless as I do not have any SATA device plugged on the JMicron ports)

With all of this, I am running 10.8.3 fine: Network is OK, Sound is OK, Sleep, Power Off and Restart are ok.
But in the power management control panel, I still don't have the "Start up automatically after power failure" option :D

I have been scratching my head of late. Im trying to setup a friends old GA EX58-UD5 mobo with 6gb RAM and i7 920 with Mountain Lion 10.8.3 App store d/l. He has a GTX580. Ive used the scripted boot disk install described by DD to the latter.

I can get to an install but sadly NOT to a [SUCCESS] reboot without the GFX card / monitor going to black screen. Ive attempted all the combinations of -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 and 0x3000, PCIRootUID=0 (and 1) and many times Ive got to the stage where it seems to flick to a bootup screen (from verbose) but the monitor just switches off/hangs?

Now the only odd thing about this mobo is the firmware is that its F12 and everyone here talks about F9. Should I downgrade?

WD SATA 2 TB drive (split partitioned) is on the blue 0/1 ports - bios has been set as everyone seems to recommend.


Firmware v12 talks about either using the GFX card on PCI, PCIE x16, x8, x4. I left it on PCIE x16.


Questions:

Has anyone got a walkthru?

Is the GTX580 an impossible GFX card to install on? (I got it to work on a z77 mobo as test after doing an internl GFX install and swap out to the GTX580, but the GA x58 UD5 as you know doesnt have an Internal GFX.

Issit the Hard drive?

Change the firmware?

What is normally wrong when the monitor when it just switches off? (It does get past PCI Configuration /AppleCPUPowerManagement, etc.. and then switches off.)

Im ready to crush his motherboard with my boot.

I'm running F13 on my ud5 with GTX 580. Have not upgraded to 10.8.3 yet. What boot loader are you using? If you're using Chameleon, make sure it's a newer version if you're using graphics enabler=yes. I inject via DSDT. I had a similar problem with the 580 going to black when I first installed it. My solution was to update graphics section of dsdt to include "NVDA,Parent". There is a good guide for dsdt injection and this video card here.

http://rampagedev.wo...rd-into-a-dsdt/


I use d00d's dsdt for native power management here.
