So I followed the guide, used my DSDT so I did not place NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in S/L/E, and was able to boot, however I too get stuck at "Still waiting for root device". Tried deleting DSDT and used the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, still gets stuck, same spot. I can't see how it is a chipset problem, my healthy SL drive only needs FakeSMC and an edited DSDT to work. My system specs are in my sig, what am I missing?


The last time that happened to me was when I had an old AMD + nForce desktop. Maybe you need some chipset drivers of some sort?

And to be honest, I've never used a DSDT for any hackintosh I've done.

Hi,

I used the guide to make my USB drive. But when I boot it, USB doesn't work. I've replaced IOUSB kexts from Lion onto the drive but it didn't work. I'm sure a DSDT would fix it, but when I put on on the drive it doesn't boot. Any help?

Thanks.


How far did -v even go?

I'm getting a kp when booting off the usb installer.
It's a problem with acpi.
I have tried using acpi=off
I have tried putting my Extra folder from Lion on the usb
I have tried deleting smbios.plist and reinstalling Chameleon ( the ML one)
Any ideas?

Can't help you without knowing what -v is telling you.

Installation works flawlessly but every second app (mail, reminders, notes, ...) crashes on startup. The system is snappy as Lion and I'm writing this post in a fully functional Safari, but the crashes are strange.

Hi Guys,

I have a HP ProBook 6450b (i5 quad core) with 4GB, integrated Intel HD graphics and Kingston SSD. Every time I try to boot with 10.8 USB key it gets stacked with the following message:

ACPI_SMC_PlatforPlugin::stat - waitForService(ressourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) time out
DSMOS has arrived

And it freezes here...
Do you know how to fix that?

Thanks.

Yes, all of theme and still the same. I use AHCI in bios and tried with cpus=1 npcia=0x2000 32bit or 64 bit still the same result. I also tried with Lion 10.7 USB key and I get the same error.

remove all of your AppleIntel graphics drivers and replace with your SL's working graphics drivers

Thks for the guide i have managed to install ML on my Dell optiplex 780.
For the boot USB i have also used my Lion Extra folder and put it on the disk because of kernel panic after that the boot disk started correct without kernel panic en i have now a mountain lion to test. ;)

This is exactly my case also, but it seems that only Apple core apps, like the one you mentioned, crashes on startup. Anyone knows what's causing this and how to fix it?

Installed on my Q9400, GB Ep-45 Extreme, works perfectly, using patched DSDT and 3 kexsts, MacMan Realtek driver, FakeSMC and Alc889 enabler.
Feels faster than lion for some reason...or is it just me :D

Can I use this method to upgrade my existing 10.7.3 osx86 or this must be a fresh install?

Works all without problems ! Speedstep works too ! :thumbsup_anim: P.S. It's funny to me when people hide the serial number on the Hackintosh.
:hysterical: Sorry guys, but I had to write it... ;)

To answer my own question. the problem was an old version of networking kexts i was using in lion. using the latest lnx2mac realtek driver works fine now. just going through fixing CMOS reset, and need to get trim re-enabled for my thrid party drive. I've had no problems with app store or facetime logins.

You may have no problem sharing your serial number, but I do. Makes no difference if its a hack or not. ok you can generate a new one if you have to, but why bother risking that. same with system UUID.
