Remove ApplePS2* kexts from S/L/E on USB and include -f in bootflags. Proper SMBIOS should solve ApplePolicyControl panic so that you do not have to remove it possibly leading to other issues. GraphicsEnabler=Y and =N both mentioned earlier, be sure your actually spelling it out properly as syntax is very important with boot flags, so should be GraphicsEnabler=Yes or GraphicsEnabler=No

Ok, I'll re write the image file to my USB and make necessary changes. I just hope my USB don't die by so many rewrites!

Btw, there are no ApplePS2*kexts, just some VoodooPS2 kexts in the Extension.mkext.

Extensions.mkext contents:
AHCIPortInjector.kext
AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
FakeSMC.kext
IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext
NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
PXHCD.kext
VoodooPS2Controller.kext
VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext
VoodooPS2Mouse.kext
VoodooPS2Trackpad.kext

I don't know how to remove those Voodoo kexts from the mkext file

Still getting stuck at ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint. This must be the problem with voodoo kexts present in Extension.mkext. Is there any way to rebuild that mkext? Also, should I try putting custom ApplePS2* kexts?

Why do you even have a mkext and/or any extension in your extra folder? If your installing Snow Leopard that would be normal, but Lion and ML don't use mkext anymore and even if chameleon can pre-load it, there's no reason to, and are adding additional stuff not needed to simply get through an installer. None of the voodoo are needed, use USB keyboard and mouse to install. PXHCD is for USB 3.0, not needed for install and not working in ML without rollback of other USB kexts anyway. Out of all those, only FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement and maybe AHCIPortIjector depending on your sata controller and who know's what versions those are. I would trash that whole thing. If you need a guide to follow with links/downloads for additional files that you may need, rockinron_1's guide is the most complete and user friendly The all-in-one guide to Vanilla OS X Mountain Lion + Chameleon + DSDT for beginners.

As I don't have a mac, I used this because I can't create the installer from scratch. I will remove the Extensions.mkext file now and retry

can you run OSX in a VM? You can then follow retail method from there as all that is really needed is Disk Utility and Terminal. In my experience, it's the only reliable way, and most other all in one, or "short cut" type installers end up taking 10 times longer by the time it's all said and done.

And reinstall FakeSMC and NullCPU to S/L/E on USB, not sure how to ensure proper file permissions on anything when using windows though. Easy in VM though

Good News! I finally installed Mountain Lion successfully on my system using this guide. Although, I can only boot with "-v -x USBBusFix=Yes GraphicsEnabler=No" so working on that! Thanks everyone for the help and time :)

That's great news! Congrats!

Hi, kushsolitary!

Refer to this link, that gives a comprehensive step by step on how to instal Mountain Lion on any PC: The all-in-one guide to Vanilla OS X Mountain Lion + Cham...

Good Luck, and report back - i want to know what worked for you.

P.S.: beware of misleading titles: your problem is everything but an instant reboot. :)


I can't help it: i must remind you that i pointed you to the guide that in the end would solved your problem, and did it in the first page of this topic, lol. Good to know that you end up there anyway, and that it worked for you.

Oh yes just noticed :P I should have listened to you. Btw, nothing works on my laptop as of now (no trackpad, inbuilt keyboard, sound, wifi, video etc) so finding a solution for that. If you know any useful link, then share it :)

Thanks :)

For trackpad and keyboard, go to www.kexts.com and search for voodoo PS2 kext.

For the other issues, i think you should post your complete specs here. Anyway, i guess you'll find the drivers needed for all your hardware at kexts.com.

Good luck!

All stuff that would be expected not to work, and a lot of which was in that mkext from before (but none of it would have gotten installed anyway, would just have been there during the installation when you don't even need it). So as mentioned, post some specs, best would be to run lspci or system info.app(basically the same thing) from the new releases and downloads section. You will need java installed for system info.app and there for working internet. lspci can be transferd and installed from a thumb drive or something. Here it go!

I finally made my wifi work, so systeminfo is downloading Java. Also, bluetooth was working OOB and I made my internal keyboard work too! Now just need the sound and graphics :D

I'll post the systeminfo as soon as it completes installation. Thanks guys!

Yes! Thanks for your help :)

And here's my system info. Seems like making my 5650m will not work without windows because it requires the an EDID so I'll install windows later. Right now, I'll fix the sound. SOUND FIXED! Trackpad, brightness, battery and graphics left :D

If you can't get brightness to work native, this will get the job done and can be mapped to the same keyboard shortcuts Shades | Software | Charcoal Design

Shades didn't worked for me. I think the brightness isn't working because I am booting with GraphicsEnabler=No. If I boot without it, I get stuck at "iobluetoothhcicontroller setconfigstate calling registerservice". I suppose there's a problem in the DSDT.

And, can I use SMBIOS of MacbookPro 8,1 rather than 6,1? Because when I click on "About this mac", it crashes to the login screen.

feel free to experiment with smbios, just give yourself a way to still boot if needed (a bootable clone using carbon copy cloner would be best). Shades would require graphics acceleration to be working, and so will many other things. Try booting with both as follows:
GraphicsEnabler=Yes ATIConfig=Hoolock

Finally, I am now getting full graphics acceleration with QE/CI. Everything is working fine except my memory card reader which I don't care about. So I am very happy now and thanks to you guys for helping me out. I never thought that I could install mac on my laptop but it's great that I did. I also installed windows side by side for other things (like playing dota 2 late night :D )

Here's the evidence:

For those wondering how I enabled full QE/CI support and graphics acceleration, I just followed this tutorial and extracted the EDID of my screen from Windows. After putting it on my mountain lion, I got the acceleration right away! I seriously love all you guys for helping me so much! I'll write a nice tutorial on hackintoshing this laptop soon for people just entering in the world of hackintosh.


Although sometimes I get KP backtracing to VoodooHDA.kext which is responsible for my sound but it's very rare (1 in 10 times) so not a problem.


Happy Hackintoshing everyone. Thank you very much :)
