Hi folk, first of all, sorry for my bad english ( I'm french )

I need you help to set up my hackintosh.
I have amd athlon II x2 250
+6Gb DDR3
+Radeon 5770HD
+SSD
+ASUS M5A78 LM - LX

Everything was working great on SL ( yeah really )

But today I wanted to try ML, but I'm faced to many pb ...


I have set up a VM using VMWare on a lenovo tab x200 ( HW not fully supported )
this is how I have procedded :
- Install OS-X 10.8 ( It works slowly but it works )
- add corecrypto
- repair all the ownership & the permissions
- rebuild the kernel & kext caches
- install Chameleon r2152

but now problem start ...
I'm not able to change anything while booting, I'm not able to change kernel / maxmem ... ...

Like if it is not installer, no prompt or something like that.

I'm disapointed. I'm not a mac expert but if you can help me telling me with Kext used and configure chameleon, I'll be able to test your kernel

Ty :)


EDIT : After preparing the system correctly I'm planing to make a bare metal backup then restore it to my hackintosh do you think it will work ? ><

Bienvenue, chocoboss! :)

Pouvez-vous expliquer ce problème un peu plus?

Can you explain this problem a bit more?


EDIT : After preparing the system correctly I'm planing to make a bare metal backup then restore it to my hackintosh do you think it will work ? ><

Oui, j'ai deja fait celui-ci, mais il a l'air inutilement plus compliqué que simplement installer directement sur votre Hackintosh.

Yes, I've done that, but it seems needlessly more complicated than simply installing directly on your Hackintosh.

ok, so I will try ...

After booting my SL was asking me ( chameleon in fact ) if I wanted to change boot option, so I was able to put "Kernel=mach_kernel maxmem=4086 ......"
but here, no prompt, no option, nothing I can do and this is anyoing I'm not a chameleon expert ...

I think there is just a line to change somewhere but I don't know where >_<
How have you managed that ?

At university, we have designed a bare metal software based on clonezilla that is really nice and easy to use ( I'm no more student btw )

I don't have perfect english but I don't need google translator, I juste have some difficulties about grammar and all the rest ;)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Avec SL, je pouvais modifier mes option de boot comme je le voulais ( maxmem / kernel ... ) mais la je ne peux pas pour une raison que j'ignore ( l'installation c'est bien passer )

Je pense qu'il doit il y avoir une ligne dans un fichier de conf a changer quelque part mais aucune idée ...
Comment as tu fais ?

A l'université, on a développé un petit utilitaire pour tout ce qui est sauvegarde de type bare metal donc pour ma part, en 10 min c'est réglé ;)
( je ne suis plus étudiant hein :P )

Have a look here: http://www.insanelym...-for-chameleon/

Basically, the syntax is some_kernel -v -f npci=0x3000 -as-many-other-kernel-flags-as-you-want. If you want to permanently change boot settings, you'll need to edit /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist. (Easiest way is to drag it to Desktop, edit with TextEdit, and drag back.) The <Kernel Flags> section directly corresponds to the flags you type at boot time. Also, you only need to have Chameleon installed on one HDD, and then booting from that HDD will give you a list of all drives and partitions with OS X installed--that is to say you can just boot from your Snow Leopard drive, and your Mountain Lion drive will be on the list. When you hit enter, the settings from that particular drive/partition's org.chameleon.Boot.plist are read.

Edit: Besides that, I've got some troubles with sound. The system sometimes distorts system sounds while playing music and VLC doesn't produce sound at all.


Try adding correct FSB and Busratio, works on SL with Sinetek's kernel

I understand but that not the pb, in fact I don't have prompt to put my kernel option and that's the problem ><

Also, this can be considered as a clean install, so no chameleon are present anymore on my disk

That's not the problem, VLC problem proved to be only with certain codecs. Mp3's play just fine, while video with AC3 audio results in total silence.

ATI graphics - that seems to be the key of success of Mountain Lion with AMD, for now.


Sort of. My Radeon 4870 pro works great, except for flash (whole canvas in browser window distorts into oblivion, sound is fine) and VTDecoderXPCService (exits unexpectedly).

Did a test this morning with a Radeon 5450 (bit of a pain to get working), it works, but with graphical glitches all over the place. Especially Safari is not really usable, Chrome is mostly glitch free. Flash does work fine (no glitches whatsoever) with this card, VTDecoderXPCService on the other hand still quits unexpectedly.

To illustrate the flash issue :)

NVIDIA BUG IS NOT AN SSE3 ISSUE! That much has been determined as of now.

Could someone try the new nvidia drivers?
http://www.nvidia.co...f02-driver.html

EDIT: new error message with the recent nvidia drivers,
The graphics driver has detected a corruption in its command stream.

To the Mods, can you help keep this thread a NON-HELP thread? And strictly a Development thread? It's annoying to flip through the pages full of people asking for help on their graphics, etc

so... i couldn't resist and copied all my stuf from my home drive to my system drive.. wich is nearly full now ;). now i have free space for a mountain lion installation.

my plan is to make a "10.8.2 installation disk" from an old ide hdd. i want to use myhack to copy over all the needed files. has anyone tried this already? i think it should boot correct (i hope).

what are the correct steps? install ml, then change corecrypto and stuff... do i need to rollback some files from 10.8 or can i just use the kernels with 8.2? do i need to install a boot loader?

thanks.

Aha... so we might be able to fix it with the new drivers :D
Hope this all gets fixed (would be cool)

But it seems that it have something to do with the kernel.

Do you have a idea what it could cause?

Thanks to Sinetek we have the latest sources.
I merged them with mine (and did some additions).
I improved his opemu to also do 32-bit kernel opemu (needed for Lion, when somebody merges it with Lion xnu sources).
I also removed the -nosse42bit (doesn't set it anymore)
You can use -nossse3bit but it isn't recommended anymore (thanks to kernel opemu).
It also sets the SSSE3 supported bit in the cpu features.
It should be recompiled though as you know my issues with Xcode atm (FIPS test fails).
Here is the diff + my built result... ;)
Theconnactic or somebody else with kernel build tools: Could you recompile and post from my diff? thanks in advance :D

Using the kernel you posted I didn't see any FIPS test fail :) Booted fine in safe boot because still couldn't get to desktop ( nVidia User )

Is this solely for 10.8.2 or both it and 10.8.0?

It's the 10.8.2 kernel
