Followed this guide exactly and installed the standard P8P67 package. Everything working great, install went fine.
Only question is, how do i go about updating? I'm at 10.7.0 and I need to be at 10.7.3 for this audio kext i want to use.

My specs:
i5-2500k @ 4.7ghz
ASUS P8P67
DDR3 1600mhz 8gb
ATI Radeon HD 6770 Crossfire
Lion installed on its own drive

Thanks..

Noipe just min and max - for intemediate speeds I suspect you would need an ssdt. i did attempt an ssdt but gave up very quickly as it didn't work first time and I was in a foul mood lol.


Yup; tried the "over clocked core i5/i7" SSDT from the latest ###### and is hangs at the very beginning of the boot process.

Thats pretty much what happened with the ssdt I tried (although i did add in all of the missing multipliers so just assumed I had done it wrong). Should probably dump my own ssdt and modify that but I'm happy enough with the lower and upper states working. Let me know if you do manage to get a working ssdt cos i will give it a try!

Just run the combo update and then reinstall any kexts that you need for your Audio and Gpu's - make a backup first using something like Carbon Copy

I'll let you know if I get it working. Actually, after I removed the DropSSDT option in the plist it actually loads the SSDT (checked with bdmesg) and boots but the ratios are still stuck to min and max.

Has anyone managed to get speedstep working on the Pro board with more states than just the min and max multiplier?

Btw Andy, thanks again for your work on this! While I didn't use your guide to installing Lion your DSDTs and hacked BIOSes have helped me get a flawless OS X experience on this ASUS board. :)

Hi Andy. Hope all is well. So I followed your guide many months ago, and then I followed another guide to install SpeedStep to be able to put the computer to sleep. Everything has been working as it should, and for this reason I've been reluctant to update to 10.7.4 from my current 10.7.2. Lately, however, I've been considering doing the update, but I would like to ask you first if there is a special procedure I need to follow, I.E., what kind of files I need to backup and restore later, of if I should run ######## again once the update is complete. Can you please give me some advice on this matter?

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE:

I read on a previous post on this thread that all I needed to do was backup AppleHDA.kext. I did so, and after installing10.7.4 Combo Update, I rebooted, and I got a kernel panic alert. I freaked out. Fortunately, I have a cloned hard drive, so I booted into it. I then ran P8P67 Pro Installer.pkg and installed on my just updated 10.7.4 hard drive. After a reboot, I couldn't get past the legacy logo screen with the gray circle turning around. I rebooted again, but this time in safe mode from Chameleon. After a while, all I got was a white screen. I rebooted once more, and Lion booted up alright. I then ran kext utility and restored my backed up AppleHDA.kext. I also restored a backed up com.apple.Boot.plist. Rebooted again just to make sure everything was OK. So far, it all seems normal.

Question:
I now get a Mac OS X 10.7.4 Supplemental Update under Software Update. Is it safe to install this? Do I need to take any precautions before installing? If anybody can share a though on this, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

update.
If I replace the bios chip with a chip loaded with the 2001 version of the bios, everything is back to work?

^Andy^, with the Mountain Lion released just a couple of days ago, I wanted to ask whether you're planning to upgrade your highly popular installation package for the shiny new 10.8 ?

Great forum and thread!

 

I am a total numpty with Hackintosh, but love a challenge and to learn new stuff :)

 

I realize this is an old thread but anyway:

 

Here is my list of hardware:

Asus P8P67 PRO, Rev 3.0 B3 with 2303 standard bios

i7 2600K

Gigabyte GTX 570 with 1280 mb

 

I started with the Snow Leopard thread and successfully installed OS X 10.6.8 where as far as I can tell everything works except the GPU card. Using GraphicsEnabler=Yes I get correct info in system profiler bar for resolution which is stated as 1024 x 768. This is also the only available resolution in System Preferences / Display.

 

Then I tried to follow the ML DP install guide, but got either a non bootable usb or bootable with kernel panic a few seconds after selecting the USB stick from chameleon, (not sure what in my build made the difference). Since I created the stick from a 10.8.4 installer and not the DP 10.8 I assume that is the problem. Or that I am screwing something up building the USB stick...

 

Ok so that is why I am now trying to install Lion which does not work. I can make the USB stick bootable  in bios and also select it at the Chameleon screen but once the OSX installer has spent a few minutes at the gray apple logo I get a "no entry" sign. The OSX circular progress symbol keeps churning on but nothing further happens. I have tried to build the usb stick from the app store 10.7.5 installer as well as the GM 10.7.

 

Just to rule out a few uncertainties I have a few questions:

 

"2 - Use disk utility to format your USB stick or drive as mac os extended with GUID partition table,"

Would using Extended (journaled) make a difference? Extended journaled is mentioned in many "make a Lion USB installer" guides on the net.  

 

"9 - Drag your formatted USB stick or drive into the 'destination' box, untick 'erase destination' and click 'Restore',"

Would TICKING erase destination make any difference? I mean the partition is empty anyway. I am asking as I have also tried to build the usb stick on a Macbook Pro running Mavericks where the disk utility does not have the tick box for erasing.

 

"17 - copy the Extra folder downloaded above to the root of the usb stick/drive,

18 - run the andyboot5 package relevant to your motherboard and select your usb stick or drive as the target,"

The Extra folder contains Preboot.dmg and the hidden com.apple.Boot.plist. After the package is installed the com.apple.Boot.plist gets placed in a backup folder and a new com.apple.Boot.plist takes its place. Is this the correct way?

 

Should perhaps the Preboot.dmg be mounted on the desktop and its content be copied into the Extra folder?

 

Cheers,

 

Andy
