Hello everyone, I have a configuration similar to yours (GTX 680, i7 3770k, vertex 4) except that the motherboard is an Intel DZ77GA-70K. Do you believe that I can try Mountain Lion? Which tutorial should I follow? Are impractical for Hackintosh ... help me? thanks Maurice

:wink2: :wink2: :wink2: :wink2: :wink2:


I will write a guide for DZ77GA-70K when i have everything working and when i get time.

Hi Lofen, Thank's a lot for this install method, it work like a charm. By the way i have a small issue when i shutdown the computer after shutdown the computer restart automatically. Do you have the same issue ? Thank you. Rgr Pascal.


Yes, I had that problem too. It's due to the Wake on Lan feature of the motherboard. You need to turn off that feature in the BIOS. After that my machine shuts down fine.

Does ML have native ivy bridge support?
I mean does the vanilla mach_kernel in the ML image work to boot your i7 3770?

Can't open the John cash guide. Not sure why.


Yes, ML supports Ivy Bridge natively. No patch needed. I'll try to upload John Cash's guide later. It seems his posts got deleted.

I have a 3770K with Z77-DS3H and i'm having all sorts of USB issues. I was wondering what your BIOS settings for USB are and what if any steps did you take to get your USB working correctly?


Didn't modify any default BIOS settings relating to USB. As you can see in the screen shot I posted. USB 3 are detected out without modification.

Thanks Lofen.
Just finished building my GA-Z77X-UD5H + i7 3770 + GTX 560.

Thanks a lot if you can reupload the guide.

I suppose before running the ./finalize-command you have to navigate to a certain directory in the terminal. Right?
I didn't try because I didn't buy the board yet.
Could you be so kind to describe the process for someone who is not really comfortable with the terminal but made it to create the install stick.

Percybut, John Cashs Guide has already been upped by WTSNZ (with some modifications for this board):

I have also uploaded the one I used (finalize modified to only copy the minimal files). See my first post for the download link (at the bottom of the post).

Hi guys,

Had a good read through this thread. I just want to clarify a few things with the folks who have had success on this motherboard and CPU.

I have just oredered the UD5H with a 3770K i7.

As I understand it, you do NOT need a DSDT of any kind when working with this board, nor do you need any Kexts?

My current setup is an EP45-DS3R - and I used DSDT which I believe has audio, graphics and various other fixes. I also use a patched AppleHDA.kext to get the onboard sound working. I used RealtekRTL81xx.kext from LION to get my network working. And the only other kext I use is FakeSMC.

My graphics card is a Geforce 9800GTX+ 512mb (not upgrading this). Which worked through DSDT.

So yea, are we saying that other than FakeSMC, this board will function 100% perfectly ( graphics, sound, network, time machine etc etc) ?

Or Will I need something for the graphics at least?

Advice and help appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks! Ya i've been doing some more testing and It seems that my USB 3 ports only work with USB 3 devices. Doesn't matter what settings I have in the BIOS can't get the USB 3 ports to hand off to USB 2. Maybe in time an updated Chimera will fix this. Other then that and my new Dell U2412M USB hub freezing the system, everything seems to be working properly.

The motherboard and CPU combo will not require a modified DSDT, but kext are needed to enable the onboard sound, network, graphics etc. UNLESS they are already supported by Apple out of the box. DSDT allows the OS to SEE the devices (sound, network, graphics etc.), but it does not automatically make them work under Mac OS WITHOUT the proper kext. What UD5H motherboard gives you is no need to have DSDT and Mac OS will recognize the devices (but you still need proper kext to have them working).

In my case I did not need to install any extra kext because I was not using the onboard sound and wire networks. I have external sound card and have an Apple Airport Extreme mini PCIe card for network. GTX 670 graphics card is also supported out of the box.

With your set up, you probabaly still need to install extra kext to enable onboard sound, network etc., but you most likely won't need DSDT.

The original post is gone. I have reuploaded his guide. Check the download link on the bottom of my first post.

Hi Lofen,

Thanks for replying.

Okay, I kind of thought there would be some kext needed. You say I would probably need sound/network kext, but what about my graphics card?

The only thing I am using at the moment for my 9800GTX+ is the DSDT. Do you know if the 9800GTX+ is supported out of the box? If not, what would be the best option to get it supported?

Thanks

Hey Fellas.

Good info so far! I was able to get further with this method than any other. ###### just flashes the apple boot screen for a split second and reboots on me. :)

Here's my question. As you can see in my signature, I have the GA-Z77X-UD5H. I get hung up at step 5 in the guide when I'm using my MSi R6850 card, it goes white screen on me right when the "Choose Languages" section should appear. I found a workaround by replacing the 6850 with a Gigabyte GT 520 card. I now see the install screen. I get through installation fine. I get through step 7 fine with finalizing the volume.

Where I get stuck at next is with the bootup off of the main drive with the install drive disconnected. The last few lines on the screen when it hangs are crying about WARNING: IOPlatformPluginUtil : getCPUIDInfo: this is an unknown CPU model 0x3a

--power management may be incomplete or unsupported.
com.apple.launchd com.apple.mrt 38 stopping job...
DSMOS has arrived
[IOBluetoothHCIController][start] -- completed


then it just hangs right there. So I found a workaround to that by placing the 6850 video card back in. I was able to boot this way. Once I was in I was able to install network and realtek audio from the latest ###### version.

My question is, why do I have to swap out the cards in order to get to the install screen? Should I be able to use the 6850 (which is native I think) to do all this?

Thanks much!

Drew

Starcraft 2 runs smooth ;-)


Does it?
On my GTX 670 in Mountain Lion I get around 40-60 FPS with Starcraft 2 (version 1.5) graphics settings set to max. If I boot into Windows I get not far from double the frames per second: 60-100 FPS.

Damn OS X and it's abysmal game performance compared to Windows. :(
It's too bad not even the games that are available for OS X performs well.

Oh, well it's just too reboot into Windows I guess..

@Lofen

 

in your script mkboot

I guess it's creating the USB boot stick

 

But why did you add support for Realtek ALC889a and Realtek 8111B in there?

 

GA Z77X-UD5H  has Realtek ALC898 codec and Atheros GbE LAN chip
