Yesterday I successfully managed to install OSX 10.8.2 on ASUS N53SV-SX062V. I wanted to have a quick boot so I decided to go with a 120 Gb SSD from OCZ like this one.
The way I installed is I guess much more hassle free than what was described here but still I have used some of the info to make the final adjustments.
I now have almost fully working set up:
2,00 Ghz Intel Core i7
4Gb of Ram (I have to upgrade those to 8-12)
Intel HD Graphics 3000 Mobile 384 MB
All of the components are working perfectly except the NVIDIA GT540M - which is apparently impossible to run on hackintosh.
I cannot say that I know if the card reader works since I haven't checked it, but other than that I was quite surprised - keyboard, fn key, brightness, bluetooth, wifi, system sensors work really good.
To make those work I used some of your kexts and some of other ones that I have found on the web.
The only issue I am having is that the bluetooth is not working when the laptop is coming out of sleep.
I also have some screen refreshing horizontal bars from time to time, but I cannot say that this is something that is coming up all the time.
I am actually quite surprised that it's so stable, especially because I had bad experiences using voodoo for sound.
If anyone is interested I can share how I did it with all the necessary steps etc.
For my install I used myHack and LatitudeOSX compiled extra folder and dsdt file for ASUS N53SV i5 version.
It sounds complicated but it actually is pretty simple. The installation goes really really smooth, although myHack takes ages to set up on USB key.
If anyone needs this info I will be happy to help.
did you create install disk with 10.8.0 and then upgraded to 10.8.2 or did you create USB install with 10.8.2 ?
Any chance you could describe your steps ?
First off thanks for this forum. its really helped a lot of us not so experts at this hobby.
this is my issue, maybe someone can help me with this ..
My SPECS: N53SV-dh7 with the i7 2670QM 2.2GHz processor and 8GB RAM
I created a USB install with 10.8.2 using the my hack method and the OSXlatitude N53S i5 Extra bootpack however it did not work.
then i created a 10.8.0 USB install using my hack and the OSXlatitude N53S i5 Extra bootpack that worked !!
but after install all i had working was video and ethernet,
then i downloaded the N53S drivers folder posted at the beginning of the thread.
First the keyboard and trakpad kext.
then i had the laptop keyboard and trackpad working.
to get the sound i used the VODOOO kext and (VERY IMPORTANT) deleted appleHDA kext. (trial and error here .. lol)
then i used the usb 3.0 kext and that worked like a charm.
Only problem with machine is that if it goes to sleep machine crashes. (doesnt wake up ) other than that everything works fine.
Here is my problem, when i downloaded the 10.8.2 combo update after it finished and i rebooted i had a kernel panic.
so i used my hack and ran myfix for to fix permissions and also did a "remove problematic kext"
That didnt work.
So i ended up rolling back to 10.8.0 using TIME MACHINE.
I strongly recommend once you have a system partially working using time machine to back it up, it will save you so much time later.. Again trial and error here...
Im guessing thats why the 10.8.2 install USB did not work.
Can anyone help me with this Kernel Panic ?
" Notice - new kext com.apple.iokit.IOHIDSystem, v1.8 matches prelinked kext but cant determine if executables are the same "
i have attached a picture of the screen.
any help will be appreciated .
BTW: are there any kext/files i should delete after installation to have a clean system ?
it seems i cannot attach a picture ..
where is the attach button ?
