yes, Thanks Tseug, I got it solved with manual kext installation.

I got a different issue.
With my videocard, a GeForce GT 520 2048 MB, when I attach the second display on vga port the computer power on regularly but no one display switch on.
Everyone communicate's Not Signal.
Neither the dvi one.
Do you know is a problem videocard related or something else?

Thanks

Hello everybody,

I have a N53SM notebook.

I have followed all steps.
And I have installed Lion on my notebook.
I have only one problem with graphic card.

I opened with (-x -v) mode and delete all old graphic kexts.
And with Kext Utility I have installed:

- AppleIntelHD3000Graphics.kext
- AppleIntelHD3000GraphicsGA.plugin
- AppleIntelHD3000GraphicsGLDriver.bundle
- AppleIntelHD3000GraphicsVADriver.bundle
- AppleIntelIVBVA.bundle
- AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext
- AppleIntelSNBVA.bundle
- AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext

But when I rebooted after the gray screen with apple logo... I got black screen.
The system is ok, but the screen is totally black. I can listen the system sound.
After some tests, I undestood that the problem was AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext
I logged with Windows partition and with MacDrive I deleted AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB directory in S/L/E and after
I could log in. But now I can use accelleration graphics.

Can someone help me?
Thanks you.

In system information my device graphic card has this ID: 0x0116

This are my org.chameleon.Boot.plist:

finalize was meant to run from the USB pen drive. If you want to run it directly you would need to "cd /Volumes/mLion/Users/ema/Desktop/install" first, but I still recommend running it from the USB drive.


After update to 10.8.3, sound was broken on GA EP35-DS4. I wasn't sure if I should run finalize after booting from the USB or if I could just cd to /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Base\ System/private/var/root/ and run it there with sudo ./finalise /Volume/MountainLion.

FWIW, I was booted in 10.8.3 and popped in the USB stick from the guide, and ran finalize there and rebooted.

Thanks for the tip on 10.8.3 not producing a working installer for now as well.

Hi Tseug. I have followed you for few years and my Hackintosh serving me well.
But our GA-P35-DS4's are old now. Do you have a new board on your mind that would be easiest to serve as a Hackintosh?
Thanks Sir.

This method was created (and tested) for the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 motherboard but it should be relatively easy to modify for any other motherboard.

You will be creating a Boot USB that can be used to install OS X Mountain Lion on a Hackintosh (or a genuine mac for that matter).

Clean install


Prerequisites

A USB drive (8 GB) or a spare partition. We'll assume you'll use a USB device here

An install partition for OS X Mountain Lion. Let's call it MountainLion

A DSDT.aml (optional)

v2.1: install.zip

Directions

  • Buy and download Mac OS X Mountain Lion from the App Store.


  • In Disk Utility, format the USB as Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) and give it some name: We'll use Boot here but it can be anything. Make sure that "GUID Partition Table" is selected under "Options..."


  • If you already have a custom DSDT.aml you wish to use, add it to install/Extra/. Note that if you add a custom DSDT, it must be named DSDT.aml. If you don't add a DSDT, one will be created for you when you run finalize (See below). Although the included patcher was made to support GA-P35-DS4 it has also been confirmed to work well with a number of other Gigabyte boards similar to GA-P35-DS4. The method used by default is for ALC889A sound and requires a specific ID (layout ID 12) in your DSDT to work. There are more details in 'ALC885HDA_Lion_MLion_V1.00/Readme First.txt' included in install.zip and also available here


  • In Terminal:
    sudo install/mkboot /Volumes/Boot/


  • Boot your USB device and install Mountain Lion on /Volumes/MountainLion as you normally would.


  • Wait for the installation to finish. When your machine reboots in the end, boot onto the USB device again


  • Open up a terminal via the Utilities menu:
    ./finalize /Volumes/MountainLion
    reboot


  • The USB device can now be ejected and OS X can be booted from the hard drive.


  • Once you've gone through creating or migrating accounts, open System Preferences -> Energy Saver and check the box by "Start up automatically after a power failure"


  • All done.
Sleep, network, and sound works on GA-P35-DS4. For a substantially different motherboard you'll need to modify mkboot and finalize appropriately.

------

How does it work?

mkboot is a bash script that installs Chameleon, the things needed from the Mountain Lion install app, and other tidbits to the target volume.

finalize is a bash script as well. It is copied over to the boot USB by mkboot and installs Chameleon etc. on the target volume.

Both scripts are commented and include links to the sources of the included software.

I'm a Terminal newbie. What to do?

Welcome to the wonderful world of the Unix terminal :) Here are some extra instructions:
  • Once you've downloaded install.zip it should reside in the Downloads folder. Safari either unpacked it for you or you can do it yourself by double clicking the file.


  • Open a terminal. Write cd Downloads and press enter.


  • Copy and paste the command from step 4 in Directions and press enter.

Known Issues

A shutdown can in some situations cause OS X to warn that it has recovered from an error on the next boot. Apart from the warning this doesn't seem to causing any problems.

Troubleshooting

Make sure you are actually booting from the USB device. On Gigabyte, you can press F12 on POST to get a boot menu.

Error reporting

If you have problems please follow these guidelines when posting in this thread:

Report your hardware including motherboard and graphics card. Check whether the graphics card is reported as working in Mountain Lion by others.

Report whether you have made any modifications to the install package.

Report exactly when the error happens. On running the script? If so, which one? On booting the USB device? On booting the hard drive?

Report what you've already tried that didn't work.

Screenshots of the error are always helpful.

Following this helps me to pin down the error. It also helps you because you will most likely not get an answer otherwise ;)


very good informative and useful how-to, thanks :king:

Thanks Sir.

I would also love to move up to a new system with a Tseug guide has I have also been following him since leopard. I know this is really early but has anyone got a hold of the mavericks beta and give this a go?

Unfortunately, my trusty GA-P35-DS4 died last week. As a result I won't be able to update this script anymore and a Mavericks version definitely won't be forthcoming (not from me at least). If anyone wants to take over feel free.

 

It's been fun :)

This is a clean install, but normally it's better to use migration assistent to copy your users and start from there. I haven't tested it from Snow Leopard, so I don't know if it will work. You'd also need to tweak your script and probably your DSDT to get audio to work.

Dont update! Do a clean instalation.

I broke my install by doing an update.

Im now making an new snow leopard install trough ubuntu...

Sorry to hear that. As someone else already asked: do you have plans to set up a new Hackintosh for yourself? I wouldn't mind piggyback riding on your choices then :)

How do I enter startup parameters (like -f or -x)?  I've tried typing them in on the screen that shows disks to boot from, but nothing seems to happen.  Do I need to edit a file?

 

Thanks -- trying to solve the "still waiting for boot device" problem and several possible solutions require startup parameters?

 

Thanks.

Just a thank you tseug from someone who has been using your scripts for a long time now, it has been fun. Good luck with everything in the future in and outside the Hackintosh world!  :)

Damn it, mine runs fine all these years. It's an old board but Mountain Lion runs on it like a dream. I'm not gonna update any further (10.8.4) without your guide we screwed :(

Once again thanks, I was lucky enough to have same board as you all these years. Maybe it's time to buy real Mac.


Actually I was looking at new Mac Pro specs, its coming later this year as you know. GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI have potential for being great board to be hackintosh.

Anyone would know why I get stuck here after all prior to that was done successfully?

 

Should I remove the airport card first or something?
