Okay I have a few more questions ( sorry for all my questions but I really want to have hackintosh :P )

As I said, my dsdt isn't listed in tonymac86 dsdt page so will it be possible that the things such as sound, network and usb3 etc will work?
In the HCL page of 10.7.4 is my motherboard confirmed working with lion, but at the install notes it says:

"Installation method:
  • Install iATKOS L2 (with IOPCIFamily.kext, ALC892.kext, AHCI.kext, NVenabler.kext, USB.kext, USB3.0.kext, Realtek RTL8111/8168.kext, AR9285.kext and PS2.kext"

Source: http://wiki.osx86pro....php/HCL_10.7.4

Those are kext's which so they will make my sound and network work but how, where and when do I have to install these?

Also I have prepared an USB with mountain lion with the tutorial you gave me earlier ( http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/ ) but at step 2C.1 It says that I have to copy the two kexts to my USB in a specific location but my question here is: Do I have to copy the zips inpacked or unpacked or only the files?

Those were my questions I hope you can answer them, thank you already for your help

Hi, The whole weekend I've been trying to make a bootable usb to install hackintsosh but none of the methods I used worked

1. I used ###### mountain lion
2. I used the guide on insanelymac forum: http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/
3. Used ###### and than a retail cd of snow leopard

What happened:
1. I didn't see the mac boot but at this attempt I didn't know how to get the dmg ( yeah I downloaded from piratebay, I want to buy it but first I want to be sure it will work on my pc )in the app folder so we tried something and ###### did work but it doesn't work....
2. Saw 1/100 sec a logo of apple then it reboots
3. When I hit enter to go to install os x snow leopard, the apple logo shows up and the spin keeps spinning for over 10 minutes than I shut it down.

I really will appreciate your help!! I want hackintosh so badly!!

Tonymac tools are not supported here, see this:
http://www.insanelym...ort-tonymacx86/

As for point 2 boot with -f -x -v (when you first see the bootloader and it highlights OS X type "-f -x -v" then press enter). It should boot, if it encounters an error post a screenshot.

Maybe it's because of that I set it to MBR instead of GUID because someone said to me I had to put it on MBR.......but I'm stuck now :P and i cant make screenshot because after 10 seconds it stops and reboots...:-(

ok, open your USBInstaller and go for System/Library/Extensions and make a copy all kexts ATI first, now delete all kexts ATI from USBinstaller and boot with this flag: -x -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No busratio=31

Okay i'm going to try that today or tomorrow but at one of the first steps should I do GUID or MBR? because someone said to me I should do MBR

if you need dual boot WIN / Mac OS use MAP Partition MBR

if you need only MAC OS use MAP Parttion GUID

Starting Darwin x86_64
Boot Args: boot-uuid=E59C812D-58D4-35A0-A8F8-C52EC219B3C0 rd=*uuid -v

I don't know if you can. Try to compress it into a single file.
