Thank you very much, works like a charm on my Asus Maximus extreme.

Everything works with two additional kexts : "VoodooHDA 2.7.4" for supremeFX II PCI sound card and "LegacyAppleYukon2" (in E/E) for ethernet to work.
(+DSDT)
My Sapphire HD4870 1gb usually need "QE/Ci Exotic patch" to work fully but here with no modification I've got full QE/CI. Sweat.

Anyway thanks again for this tutorial really easy to follow !

Edit : "GraphicEnabler=No" otherwise it won't boot.

Evoreboot.kext in S/L/E or it won't shutdown

I have followed your tutorial (great job by the way :)) but I still have a kernel panic during the installation...(see pictures attached)
It seems that I have a problem with FakeSMC: "FakeSMC: key info not found DPLM, length - 6
WKTP, length - 6

You can check my config in my signature.
Sorry if my english isn't really good :( I'm french :)
Thanks for your reply :)

I will answer to myself: it's a matter of bios settings Go to the BIOS Setup > processor > "limit CPUID MaxVal= disable

Hi there,

That's a pretty thorough guide. The bit of discussion about the DSDT not withstanding, I found it pretty helpful, except that after the installer loads, it tells me that it can't install OSX on this machine. I'm using a Dell XPS M1530 Core2Duo 2.0 and Nvidia 8600 GS. I'm using a DSDT that injects my nvidia graphics support, and fixes a few other things. I'm currently running snow leopard. I've checked the specs, and I should be able to run Mountain Lion, but it doesn't seem to think so. any thoughts?

Oh, before I forget, I had to disable ApplePolicyControl.kext from /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns because it was causing a kernel panic, and the installer wouldn't load at all. I don't think that should be causing the problem I'm having though.

Thanks,

LULightTec

@lulighttech, try a different symbios and check the spec of the symbios you use is compatible with ML

@rockinron_1

I followed your guide and I ran into a problem:

you says in the Part 2 - Creating the installer - 2.A. Preparing the USB
'5. Click Options -> select “GUID Partition Table”; check the format is set to “Mac OS X Extended (Journeled)”; name it “USB”'

But my motherboard does not support the booting from the GUID usb stick. It simply frozes during the post screen.
So I had to use the mbr format and I successfully installed the osx.

I think you should suggest the mbr instead of guid. my motherboard was very popular - Gigabyte EP45-UD3P.

I might have run into the exact same problem. Didn't boot when trying to install with a GUID partitioned USB-stick. When I restored the usb-stick onto a partition on my (GUID partitioned) SSD, it worked fine.

I've heard of this problem before with some legacy systems, I've updated the guide accordingly. See step 7.5 if your interested.

Each one I've used has been supposedly compatible according to the specs on the apple page. Any other thoughts?

Excellent guide. However, I would make one edit: using a more updated version of FakeSMC. The one you linked to was version 2.5. The latest one is 4.2, which is available here: http://www.projectos...?showtopic=1643

His guys I'm following this guide to update my working 10.7.2 build on an ASUS P5W-DH but I'm having the usual graphics card problems. I have a 6870 and it's causing annoying problems shunting everything down to the lower quarter of the monitor meaning I have to guess where the buttons are in order to progress the installation. This also means I can't customise it to my system properly either. Anyone know what causes this?

Relatedly once it is installed I get the hang at 'DSMOS has arrived'. I know this is something to do with boot.plist and editing my graphics kexts but I can't seem to find a guide telling me exactly what to edit and how to do it.

Any ideas ?

Check this thread for the HD6870 issues http://www.insanelym...l=&fromsearch=1
(i've described the general fix in post #23 on this thread)
If that doesn't help you I suggest posting to the forum as I've personally not seen this problem so can't help you further

Hi Ron,

Would you be able to tell me which SMBIOS I sshould use for my HP Pavilion dv6000?

Thanks.

GMA950 (your graphics card) is no longer supported in ML, your going to have to do some research if you want to get that working

I have a 950GMA Kext that makes ML work with my Graphics Chip.

I don't know if it gives me QE/CI but, I'll see if I can get a kext that makes that work.

I did have DP2 working but, when I tried to upgrade to DP3 it wouldn't boot the system after install.

I want to try your guide but, just want to make sure I am using the correct SMBIOS.

All the best,

NSCXP2005

Try the macbook 4.1 one or the macbookpro 4.1. They're probably closes to your system. Typically the smbios helps with graphics problems and since your gonna run into that anyway I wouldn't worry about it too much.
