Finally I found this guide that explain how to install ML on a P8H67 M-PRO main board, beacuse I've been trying to install Ml gm few times on my pc,always with a fail result.
The problem is that I've few different things on my pc:
NVDIA GTX 550 Ti
Intel i5-2320 3.0GHz
1 tb seagate hd with win7 installed
An empty 500 gb western digital hd in which I wanto to install OS X in dual boot.
Integrated gpu intel hd 2000

This is a new pc and while updating my bios,1 month ago,my main board has been broken so I've got to change with a new one...I'm not sure about disk status..I currently have al my disk working on ahci mode,it makes any difference?
However, the question is:when I've to follow the step in which I create the clover bootloader my bios could be corrupted(and consenquently my mainboard)or is just a modification that can be fixed if don't work properly?
I also seen that a big problem with the installation(in fact 10.6 and 10.7 osx don't work) is due to my intel HD 2000,which is not supported..so,in the instalation file I've got to change many kext to make it work as an HD3000?And what I have to do to make my GTX work properly?I'm not so expert so I want to be sure that all works great before trying to install ML so I hope someone can help me!

I will try to separate your questions:

I currently have al my disk working on ahci mode,it makes any difference?
- They need to be in AHCI-mode

When I've to follow the step in which I create the clover bootloader my bios could be corrupted(and consenquently my mainboard)or is just a modification that can be fixed if don't work properly?
- I don't know what you mean for sure. I think you mean that Clover does something with the BIOS? To answer this question: no it doesn't. You can boot with an USB before you set Clover as boot-option in the BIOS. (This will not change/flash the BIOS, only an entry will be added.) I however recommend to also flash the BIOS for fully speedstep, but remember this is at your own risk and could make your Motherboard corrupted again.

I also seen that a big problem with the installation(in fact 10.6 and 10.7 osx don't work) is due to my intel HD 2000,which is not supported..so,in the instalation file I've got to change many kext to make it work as an HD3000?And what I have to do to make my GTX work properly?
Just don't use the Intel 2000. You just plugin the DVI/VGA cable in GTX card and it will boot.

Please be more clear, otherwise I can't answer your questions. :)

Ok..so,my current configuration is ok because my disks are working in ahci mode,so I don't need to change nothing..
About the second question you've understood perfectly what I meant,so if I use clover as bootloader I 'don't need' to flash my bios...Becuase I've tried to flash it one time when the pc was new,1 month ago, but my main board has been broken, so I'm not sure about patching my bios at the moment.
About my videos cards I'll try to let you understand me (sorry for my english) :lol:
On my pc there are 2 video cards : An Intel HD 2000 gpu card and a NVDIA GTX 550 Ti, in which is attached my vga ouput at the moment..The problem is that when I use win7 and I try to boot with vga attached on intel gpu, my monitor turn in sleep mode so I can only use the gtx output...Furthermore, I know that ML, but also all the other os x, don't support this intel gpu, so is that a problem when I try to install ml?
And consequently, as you wrote in this guide, all the kext and patch are for 4xx nvidia card, so what I've to do for my gtx card to have a clean installation, remembering that the intel card is not supported?

Thank you for the support :)

Hi,

You need to be sure before flashing the BIOS. So it is good thing that you wait.

Yes, the Intel HD 2000 is going to be trouble. Just use the 550 GTX. I don't think you need to patch it, but I recommend to edit AGPM.kext.

Good Luck. :)

That's why I asked you about my gtx...I'm so expert,so how can I edit my

AGPM.kext

And there'll be any problem with dual boot, because I have separate hd,so I think I don't need to follow the 'dual boot' part,right?


By the way, thank you for the

support,now I'll try to install it.

- See Step 2, you properly don't need to follow Step 1 (If you have any freezes follow Step 1 to).

And there'll be any problem with dual boot, because I have separate hd,so I think I don't need to follow the 'dual boot' part,right?
- No you don't need to follow that step. I don't think having two separated hdd's is going to be a problem. Just press the F8-key when booting and select the one you would like to boot.

Np. :)

Ok,I've reached the installation without any problem,so thank you a lot!
Now I'll do all the patches..The problem is that when I try to do something that require id and pw. It always says that pw are incorrect, so I can't do nothing..How can I fix that issue?

I think you mean the password from your account? I think you entered wrong. You should try to make a new one (or reinstall) and just set an easy password for your account. E.g. 1234/admin or install

I solved this problem by reinstalling os x..Now I need a big help for the post installation and then for the upgrade to 10.8.3..After installing it, I must boot with clover usb and here comes the problems:
- When I use ubuntu live cd to generate dsdt it doesn't work..It generate an empty aml file(and I can't see what the usb have inside because clover boot on safe mode only)
- I've placed ssdt.sh made on vbox sistem into downloads directory to make my own ssdtPRGen.sh,but if I type as you said I don't get anything on my desktop....
- I'm not sure how to patch intelcppm with the script attached, beacuse is for 10.8.3 version..will it work?
- I don't know how to make my ethernet working, because I'm not so expert so I found this part quite difficult..
- Is after doing all these thing that I can make clover as bootloader?

Hope you can help me once again :)

Please don't make double posts. Also please read the first post, everything you need to do is described.

To get your ethernet to work follow this post.

- When I use ubuntu live cd to generate dsdt it doesn't work..It generate an empty aml file(and I can't see what the usb have inside because clover boot on safe mode only)
I had this problem also. Just make a folder on the (same) USB and drop all files in their (drivers, utilities, 10.8.3 combo update, etc.).

- I've placed ssdt.sh made on vbox sistem into downloads directory to make my own ssdtPRGen.sh,but if I type as you said I don't get anything on my desktop....
That doesnt work, do this on the main system, not in a vbox. Just place that file on the desktop.

- I'm not sure how to patch intelcppm with the script attached, beacuse is for 10.8.3 version..will it work?
Just download the latest one. It only works for 10.8.3.

- I don't know how to make my ethernet working, because I'm not so expert so I found this part quite difficult..
See above

- Is after doing all these thing that I can make clover as bootloader?
Yes

I'm sorry about double post!
I've carefully read the guide and I'll try to follow your suggestion about ssdt...
But I already read the guide that tell how to make realteck work, but on my S/L/E there aren't any kext has he said, and if I go to system preferences, network, is just an empty window in which I can't do nothing..Is also true that I didn't understant well that guide...
About audio kexts what I should do?
I finally had my dsdt compiled (I didn't used ubuntu live)..I have to place it on my desktop?
Btw clover won't install correctly, but I'll post what it says, maybe it can be useful..
Sorry for all these questions and thank you for the patience!

Hi beta992, how much do you get on Geekbench? I don't understand your CPUPM edit with MacBookPro8,3 data. For USB 3.0 try GenericUSBXHCI.
And here is the patch for your board, maybe you can fix the problem with sleep. Or try using Chameleon to fix it.

Hi giofrida,

Will try add a score this week for Geekbench. I edited CPUPM with the MacbookPro8,3 data to get more P-states.
This patch is not compatible with the newest BIOS, that is why I use their patch for newer BIOS as base.

Thanks for the USB3.0 tip! I don't have any USB3.0 device yet, but it would be nice to have more USB-ports. :)

Thanks. Just tried editing the kext. It "unlocks" at least 3-4 more p-states. Maybe I'll try doing the same thing with our laptop because I only get 924MHz and 2260MHz.

Yeah, you could try. For some this will give more P-states for some reason.
