Ok, I recreated a new usb boot stick based on 10.7.3. Every hardware is working and with sound! Even with my bluetooth stick :wink2:

The iCloud account I still cannot create. I don't know why. Anybody have this problem too?


To solve the iCloud issue you need to activate your iCloud account on a real Mac or iOS machine. In an iPad with iOS 5, I activated the iCloud account and then I could logon in the iCloud account in the hackintosh machine.

Sorry I'm a total noob esp when it comes to terminal.

I really can't understand the guide in post #1, esp. starting from steps 4.. (sudo install/mkboot /Volumes/USB\ Boot/)

I'll explain steps I did:

#format partition my USB Flashdisk as the guide;
#download the "install.tr.gz", in the Downloads folder; extract it ("install.tar" file created); then I extract it again (a folder named "install" created);
#Then I copy my custom DSDT.aml ; paste it into "Extra" folder inside that "install" folder;
#Then I copy my Lion installer (InstallESD.dmg) ; paste it into "Downloads" folder;

#Then I open Terminal, and type:
cd Downloads

#hit Enter

#I type sudo install/mkboot /Volumes/USB\ Boot/

#then I hit enter

#type my password

#hit Enter

It says "/Applications/Install Mac OS X Lion.app: No such file
Usage: mkboot <target volume>"

I tried this too:
sudo install/mkboot InstallESD.dmg DSDT.aml /Volumes/USB\ Boot/

(Almost) the same answer from Terminal;
(Usage: mkboot <target volume>)



I really don't know what to do.
I know this should be easy for you who understand terminal, but for noobs like me I really don't have idea..

Can anybody please explain to me?



Thank You in advance

Ok, it finally worked. I created my account on a Windows 7 machine, updated chameleon wizard to v4 and iCloud worked instantly :star_sunglasses:

Happy happy happy :thumbsup_anim:

I had this problem and resolved it with a BIOS update. I have a Gigabyte P35 so YMMV.

After upgrading to 10.7.3 via Software Update I've lost audio and haven't had any luck getting it back - even after re-running the finalize script.

System Information shows audio is:

Intel High Definition Audio:
Audio ID: 885

but there are no devices to select in the System Preferences > Sound > Output window :unsure:


Anyone have any ideas?

Not sure what it was but re-running the finalize script seems to have done the trick.

Is it normal for sleep/hibernate that the pc doesn't turn off, only the screen does?

Tried sleepenabler.kext but doesn't change anything.

Just checking in to see if anyone has been able to get CPU temps for this install. I installed the plugins from the previous page and got just about all sensors except my CPU temp.

[snip]

A perl script containd in file "AppleRTCpatch.txt" is used to patch the AppleRTC.kext and if it needs bumping
just put the new script in the "AppleRTCpatch.txt" as the replacement.
Source: http://www.insanelym...6


I'm told the patch works on Mountain Lion without issues. I can't guarantee that it works for alle future releases of AppleRTC but it was made to be somewhat resilient to change unless code directly around the trouble spot is changed.

Let me know how it goes. Should we start new thread similar to rhis one but just Mountain Lion???


I think it's great that you could use the script as a starting point. I had originally hoped that more people would tailor it to their machines and publish it. I would, however, suggest that you make a separate thread in the appropriate forum.

I am getting a "failed to eject volume" error when running the script. The script then stops (or does it finish at that point?).

GA-P35C-DS3R
Gainward GTS 250 (supported with all the cool stuff)
Lion 10.7.3 (yea I know, I just want to do a reinstall)
Intel Q6600
Mods to the install: added DSDT file
Screen shot attached.
I am running the script on a hard drive partition, not USB stick. My mobo doesn't boot the latter.
The resulting HD partition contains 4.85 of data.

It sometimes does that on my computer as well. It should work anyway, though.

Hi, perhaps a strange request in here... well, I am the owner of a p35-ds4 mainboard, a q6600 cpu, nvidia GT8800 , 8 gb of ram. ... I used this guide for install and so far all is ok, but ... I realize that the harddrive speed in very bad, compared by example with a macbook or macpro (I did have the opportunity to play with this machines with a couple of days back)... so, what can I do to improve this ? do I need a special kext ?! Can someone help-me wit a tailored kexts for this mainboard ? or a "improved"n dsdt ? I know that the mainboard is old ... but no money for a new system ... any help will be appreciated !

How do you check your HDD performance? I've never heard of an HDD kext...
