Hello there,
I have on ux32vd 10Gb RAM, but ML recognize only 3,25 GB RAM.
How can I make use of fully 10GB RAM on ML?

Thx for your help in advance.


I solved this booting with Clover

Is it possible to use the DSDT from your UX31A-Extra folder for my UX32VD? Or will it be incompatible?

Most likely incompatible. Use the DSDT of "Thomas2111".

PS: I found a solution for the FN-keys but I don't know how to implement it. Looking for DSDT expert!

Alright, thanks. I finally got ML to boot by using Unibe@st 1.4. However, I can't get the bootloader to be installed properly? I've tried using the patched Chameleon bootloader from Thomas21111 and it doesn't seem to work. The BIOS doesn't detect the boot option.

Hi I'm back
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT POST FOR UX32VD OWNERS, C and P states are working with CHAMELEON, and you'll have your 10 go of ram and your mac will work great, excepted wifi if you don't have changed your card, fn keys and geforce, your trackpad will work great too (beta)
may work for other zenbooks (be carefull, don't touch the ux32VD bios in this case)
Now just folow the steps :)
1 ^BE SURE YOU ARE USING THE V212 BIOS or less near (was working with 211, not with 213) (update here) (winflash on windows ^^" and downgrade if needed )

2 Install Mac OSX ML Method : OSinstall.mpkg + OSINSTALL(MBR) on a MBR mac Os partition
http://www.mediafire...od14fuy7ditaaoo
show hidden files, on the usb you created :
OSInstall.mpkg replace to
/System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg
OSInstall replace to
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/OSInstall



2b BOOT WITH -X FLAG ! using your usb stick, USE AN USB MOUSE, SHOW HIDDEN FILES
(if you want to install 1.0.8.2 update, its now)
3 ^Install Chameleon Bootloader (next next next)

4 ^Copy Extra Folder at the root of your system disk

5 Delete Geforce.kext & AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext from System, library, Extentions
.......................................(^if there is one^)

6 ^Use KextWizard to install the Kexts in System, library, Extentions, REBUILD CACHE
Reboot

to get the scrolling, move a bit the curosr of scrolling speed in trackpad preference pane

7 ^If You have Windows 7 on another partition copy this at the root of your part , give a drive letter to your 100 mb part and delete it (in partition manager)

8 ^If You have Windows 8 on another partition copy this at the root of your part (use linux if you can't boot, to copy)

9 Enjoy

Thank you so much for sharing but it looks like SkyDrive doesn't like us. Can you send them elsewhere?


Thanks again!

Is there a DSDT GOD that can fix the fn-keys and keyboard backlight on UX32VD?

By reading all the documentation on the issue (even from Linux distros) it seems that the fix lies in properly initializing CADL & DDIL.

If anyone is not willing to swap out their Wifi cards. I would recommend a D-LInk DWA 131, it uses a RTL8192SU chip and works wonderfully on ML (just don't install it while you're in safe boot).

Who understands DSDT well here?

Anyone?

Hey Thomas2111,

I finally got it up and running thanks to your guide. The only mistake is the name of the kext, which is incorrect: AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext doesn't exist in that location. I think it should be AppleACPIPlatform.kext? I deleted that instead and everything seems to work fine so far. Now I'm retrying your guide with the 10.8.2 combo update ;).

Thanks a lot for the great guide!!

Deleting the wrong kext didn't cause any problems since it was eventually being overwritten normally in your step number 6 in your guide ;).

I've succesfully also installed 10.8.2 with your guide, though I've found that the performance of the laptop isn't really optimal yet. I've also got a VMWare Mountain Lion install under Windows 8 and I get a Geekbench benchmark score of about 6500 and on my native Mountain Lion install (= result of your guide) I only get about 4500. I've included a side by side comparison of the benchmarks of both systems running on 10.8.2. Any idea what might cause this?

benchmark comparison image (VMWare install vs native install): http://www.mediafire...u5t7bt8bvj7qq3a

It seems the CPU is only being used 50% at full load, as Geekbench states that there seems to only be "one processor", although the i7 is a dualcore of course :). Wrong kexts?
