I tried today, but after installing 10.8.3 Chameleon stopped working.
Note that I'm on UEFI, so no DSDT.

HAHAHA

UEFI does not mean you should not be using a modded DSDT. Not using a modded DSDT is the worst way to go when using OS X.

Consider the source:

http://www.insanelym...ort-tonymacx86/

They only care about advertising and revenue on there site. Have you not noticed that they seem to only really support one manufacturer...

What they do not tell you is all the drivers that will not load and features that will not work without a DSDT. Having UEFI does not equal a Mac.

I was not laughing at you but the idea of thinking that UEFI BIOS means no need for a modded DSDT. I assume you are new to Hackintosh and once you are around for a bit you will understand.

Not new, but haven't done it in a while. Pre-DSDT to put it that way.

By the way, I'm assuming GraphicsEnabler=No still needs to be set in the boot plist after getting this to work?
I'm basically putting my weekend towards this.

First see my guide here:

http://rampagedev.wo...g-with-full-qe/

GraphicEnabler is a function in which the Bootloader injects the necessary information for Mac OS X to initialize the GPU. This is a dirty method and should only be used when first setting up a system prior to editing the DSDT.

DSDT injection is the proper way of permanently enabling your GPU. Using any type of boot flags is never a good idea long term.

Exactly. I actually knew that :)

Got the system up again after installation now. Everything but DSDT, and of course I'm leaving 10.8.3 till last and taking a CCC backup this time.

Rampage Dev, you seem to have some experience with ATI cards.
Is it possible to fix the cold boot bug or is there no other option than to hope for drivers changes in the 10.8.3 final?

I suspect our problem is not the same cold boot bug like the 69** series.. because if i boot first win and later osx.. it don't work without the sleep trick.

I don't understand your guide, Rampage... Is there another guide somewhere?

Its very straight forward. Just copy and paste as shown in the Video I posted.

Easy for you to say, you know a lot more than I do about this stuff :)

But I am going to try again. This time I'll ignore the guide and follow the video, which is a lot less confusing.

The guide is the video and nothing more. I repeat step by step what is provided in the guide and there is no difference. Just slow down and take the time to READ. Its how I learned how to do these type of things.

I did, but I got these errors the last time as well: Posted Image

The line number points to the device ID which I changed. It just looks like this:

Buffer (0x04)
{
0x9A, 0×67, 0×00, 0×00
},

Thats because you just copied and pasted in the number from the post. Compile before you change things then change it by hand.

I kid you not, that makes it 32 errors instead of 4. That could be because the first error is now fixed and a ton of other errors are then found of course. (Pretty standard for compilation errors in my experience. Fix that one missing semicolon, and a {censored}storm comes your way)

Edit: New errors point to an already existing GFX0, which is correct... I'm going to upload my existing DSDT, if you could have a look at it that'd be great.
Note that this is the unedited version, pre-7000-series.

Thanks, man :)
Now I just have the sleep issues left, and I'm done.
