i tried last week with new ISO Mac OS X 10.8.2 Clover EFI (i forget links but you can google it) and AKTOS ML 10.8.2 it can setup smoothly but after that i can't reboot to mac.BIOS show USB boot EFI Clover i can boot but it freezes At Systime Uptime In Nanoseconds.it works fine with another boot Chameleon (http://kat.ph/os-x-1...s-t6526209.html). I will try your guide this weekend. I tried to fix AppleHDA.kext but it doesn't work. My Nvidia GTX 670M works fine with GraphicEnable=Yes, i think GTX 680M support also native, you can try with beta version 10.8.3
I updated 10.8.3 beta from AppStore it works, i think it boot faster than 10.8.2

So here's the deal. I got Clover installed and it boots flawlessly. I was having the problems most of you had with only being able to boot with a USB drive. I personally have a SSD dedicated to OS X. What I did was install ML on that (GUID HFS+ partition).

--Then I used EFI tools to create my EFI Fat32 partition (this should do it) Then, since all we're doing is EFI booting, all you need is the correct drivers in the EFI folder on the EFI partition.
--I found that this package works well. Simply download and extract to your EFI partition.
--You may need to add Clover to the boot options in the BIOS. Simply go to boot and "Add new boot Option" Give it a name "Clover" then select the device (usually the only one listed if no usb devices are there). Then for path enter /EFI/BOOT/CLOVERX64.efi) and add. Should then be able to boot.

Hopefully that helps you guys out. I haven't played much with it, but I have the 670m so everything seems to be working so far. (no audio). I'll mess around with it tonight when I get back from work.

Cheers!

Quick question, did you have issues with "Waiting for DMOS" that increases boot time by at least 30sec using Clover ? How much RAM do you have ?

I have 16GB (all reported by the system after clover boot).
I had the DSMOS issue, but it was because I deleted FakeSMC.kext and it just didnt boot at all. As for your problem, try hitting space at the startup screen and selecting the "use kexts" (or whatever). That will rebuild your kext cache. If that doesn't work, perhaps try a different FakeSMC? Also, my boot time is quick and probably not comparable to yours since I have a SSD drive booting.

I did notice I have to tick the "Patch AppleCpuPM" though for it to boot. I also just have legacy usb on and xhci disabled. I don't have any usb 3 devices so this isn't a problem for me, yet.

For those curious, I took my dsdt, fixed the errors, applied some patches and got this. I'm sure there are things that don't work, but it's a start.

Sleep issues still existed. I ended up editing the vanilla DSDT again. I added the gfx again. Now compiles with no errors/warnings. Currently working on the darn _BIF method to return valid data.

Nope. As I hate the backlight in general, I don't care to have it patched or working. As for the applehda, I don't have windows functional so I can't get the pin overrides. Also, has anyone gotten a vt1802 to work in osx? I know voodoohda works, but it gives garbage sound. the vt2021 can work in osx, but if you look at the specs its WAY better than our vt1802 and a different beast all together.

I wonder if he has the NV100Enabler.kext that comes with iAtkos installed. From what I remember, it seems to install that auto-magically ;) Regardless of if he does or not, for the sake of you guys with the 660m perhaps see if its a device id issue? You say its the save device, though. Same dev id etc?

I will continue my experiments once my lappy back from RMA. On another side, seems that someone managed to get the speakers to work using AppleHDA, can someone try it out ?

Oh you know it! The voodoohda is horrible in sound quality. I'll play around with it tonight. Hmm judging by his codec entry in the dsdt segment he posted might be different. Appears he has a Conexant Whereas we have a VIA codec. We'll see, but don't get your hopes up.


Edit: Yeah I played around with it last night. We have a different codec ID. I'm not done messing with it, but I haven't been too great at patching AppleHDA in the past. We'll see though.

Hello, people! I have a G75VW RS72 BIOS 223 and am having some video problems. When I'm editing in Final Cut X freeze it and have to restart the notebook. This is very bad. Do you have any solution to show me?
I'm using chameleon and GE = Yes Cuda and OpenCL OpenGL patch MAC OS 10.8.4 Build 12WE33a. My GPU is gtx 670m and have freeze sometimes on system. :/


----- EDIT

BIOS 203 Working with chameleon knows 12 GB DDR 3, Keyboard backlight works and USB 3.

Hello to all,
I'm trying to install ML on my Asus G75VX cv006h:
i7 3630qm (HD 4000 integrated video)
HM77 Chipset
nvidia gforce 670mx
Kingston 240GB ssd HiperX
16gb Ram
bios 204
(the bios does not get to 222 as with G75VW)
 
I've used both iATKOS ml2 that ml3 but I can do the installation, but then crashes at startup. definitely something wrong. like you did?
can you tell me step by step to setting the bios and usb prepazione installation, partitions for a future dualboot with win ecc
thank you very much.
 
ps: I've done other hacks but this time I can not

Hello mattegsxr. The series G75 gamers have intel hd 4000 is disabled.

You can try this metod from olarila as I did. http://olarila.com/f...php?f=27&t=1627 - You can download Mountain Lion 10.8.4

Use Smbios MacbookPro9,1 and install the kext GenericUSBXHCI. Good luck!

Anyone had any progress on the 660m yet?  FINALLY got 10.8.4 running using iatkos and that multi-xxx tool we're not supposed to talk about to get USB 3 working.  Aside from the wireless, only thing not working is the 660m.

I have the vx which i similar to the vw. I got the wifi on mine working with the kext here: http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=4047 Maybe it'll work for yours too.

I have the same graphics issue you do and nobody has gotten it working yet

Hey everyone I could use a little help with the following problem.

I am trying to put clover on my g75vw 660m, using chameleon I can get 1920x1080x32 but no h/a, that is fine but when I load clover and I can get it to boot. It boots only in 1024x768, can't get it to go 1920x1080. Running v1942 and tried all different setups, it just doesn't want to go full rez. Any help would be appreciated....

ckegman, you might want to read the thread before posting. The whole issue with Asus G75vw/x is that there is no graphics accel. Therefore we're all stuck at 1024x768.
