Ohh you are on FX? fx_kernel is deprecated. Use the kernel by Andy Vandijck that is linked in the first post of "Mountain Lion kernel testing on AMD", and install the Clover loader: http://www.osx86.net...html#post124362
Change install location to your USB drive. You must have Mac OS X to run the pkg - this is the only way to install Mountain Lion on FX.

Try cpus=1 acpi=off PciRoot=1 -v -x


The FX kernel is the only working kernel.
I don't have a mac and in VM don't boot :(

Same results.
Maybe I did something wrong? For instance, when it came to the FakeSMC kernel, I got a little confused, there were many files. I downloaded the FakeSMC_plugins rev609 zip and only added one that said "FakeSMC.kext" to /S/L/E. I'm not even sure that's how you do it...
Or how about other kernels? I thought Andy Vandijck's was the best one, though, and that's the one I have.

If you already have the USB installer, download and open VirtualBox and create a new Virtual Machine. This done, you assign your USB stick as boot priority and boot from it. Post here the results, preferentially with printscreens.

All the best!

Try this guide: http://www.insanelym...erimental-only/

But use this kernel, not the deprecated one linked there: http://www.mediafire...lz9gow6rw3k6dav

That's for Lion. Should I install that first, then (somehow) upgrade to ML?
I'll give it a go, since Lion is older and therefore more thoroughly tested, but I was hoping to use ML since it sounds cooler :P

@iskorini

the fx_kernel is sinetek's kernel which was the first working one for AMD-ML
yes! it requires AnV's patched corecrypto.kext


if you're installing the osx on Micro$oft's MBR partition instead of Apple's GUID one,
then you also need to replace the
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/OSInstall
with the pre-patched one which supports MBR

btw, which version of ML are you installing?



@zozourban

AppleNForceATA: found 0 units

it seems that your current AppleNForceATA.kext is not compatible with your nForce SATA/ATA controller

maybe you could try AnV's AppleNForceATA.kext repatched by imk

http://www.insanelym...for-sl-3264bit/ <--- read post #14

the -x flag won't help if the osx can't find its root partition (still waiting for root device)



@theconnactic

AFAIK, the osx can be installed on both GUID & MBR partition
only for MBR, you just have to patch the
/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/OSInstall

I kept reading through the instructions over and over again, but I just don't understand them. I need to make a USB stick in order to boot into my physical machine, but I think all these instructions expect me to have a working OS X installation, not on a VM, but on the physical machine itself. I don't have an external USB hard drive, only an 8GB pen drive, which should be enough for an install media.
Unless there's something I'm missing, I'll have to go with the SL instructions, then upgrade to L, then ML, and hope it works...

It will: go for it. :D

P.S.: except the graphics: there was never ever any success for any onboard graphics solution (except for Intel HD3000 and Intel HD4000, which are integrated to Sandy and Ivy bridge CPUs). Buy a cheap discrete card if you can: a G210 for Lion and Snow Leopard, or perhaps a HD5450 for Mountain Lion (but it's hit-or-miss: the 5450 works a wonder for me, but it's not certain it will do for you).

Hanging at DSMOS has arrived means your GPU isn't loading the GUI. Try these steps:

1) Use GraphicsEnabler=Yes
2) If above doesn't work, use GraphicsEnabler=No
3) If again it doesn't work, boot with -x
4) Last ditch attempt, try removing all ATI and AMDRadeon kexts from System/Library/Extensions.

Good luck: you're almost there!

I was going to give up on ML. But you know what? I didn't! Because I'm a persistent f*cker, that's why! ML WON'T BEAT ME!
Ok, so I was going through the BIOS settings, looking for something to disable that might help. Disable ACPI 2.0? Still doesn't work. Disable APIC? Nope. Also, Windows won't boot, so I enabled them again.
C1E? That sounds suspicious. I'll disable it. I boot into my ML USB with -v...and...oh my god...it's moving. The text is moving! Stuff is appearing on my screen!
OH GOD! IT'S THE INSTALLER! I booted into the installer! And now...I...can't...move the pointer...and the keyboard doesn't work either...DAMMIT, I'M SO CLOSE!

That's basically a recreation of my thoughts a few minutes ago. I came back to ask what could cause this. Both the keyboard and mouse are PS/2, I have no USB peripherals at home, and I don't even have Bluetooth on this thing. Maybe I'm missing a kext?
Please please help me! I'm so close I can feel it!

OS X has no native support for PS/2 keyboards and mice. Place these kexts in /System/Library/Extensions of the USB stick: http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=2336

Use the free trial of MacDrive (http://www.mediafour...oducts/macdrive) if you can't write to the USB.

Good luck :)

I still have my VM to modify the USB. Still, I shoved the three kexts in there, tried booting without flags and with -x -f -v, I even disabled the "Plug n' play OS" option from the BIOS. Nothing. It seems those kexts work up to 10.7, so I'm not really surprised.
I might get a USB mouse and keyboard later, but I rather spend my money on something else, like an actual video card. Any other suggestions?
I would like to thank everyone in the forum, regardless of me not succeeding just yet. You guys are really supportive. Kinda like the Linux community. You rock.

EDIT: scratch that, I found working kexts! But now, now I have full access to the installation media...which means...now what?
I tried opening Disk Utility and formating a 100 GB NTFS empty partition in my drive to HFS+, but it wouldn't let me, unless I formatted the whole drive. Which I'd rather avoid, but I can live with it. Also, my drive didn't show up among the drives I could install OS X to.
However, my main concern is GPT. If I'm going to nuke my partitions and start all over, I'd go GPT, but I read it bugs real bad when used in conjunction with BIOS. Does anyone know something about this? If you tell me GPT and BIOS work fine, I'll just back up my data and format.

Your drive won't show up in the installer screen until you format it. GPT and BIOS should work fine if your system is only OS X - If you are multibooting, you should install on MBR, use the patch found here: http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=3718

Glad you found the community helpful - that's the main goal of the OSx86 project, helping others learn :)

Oh, I'm nearly there! So close!
I patched the installer and voila, my MBR-partitioned drive was there. I formatted my 100 GB partition as HFS+, set it to install, and...it "failed". I dunno. It theoretically failed the installation. I assumed it was a fake error and tried to proceed anyways.
Back in the USB, I opened the Terminal and copied all my kexts (including the PS/2 ones) just like the guide instructed. The folders were there, so I thought it most likely installed properly.
Reboot again, I try to boot into ML...and it reboots. Automatically.
I used the USB to get back to Windows. Any ideas? Should I copy the amd kernel somewhere? Should I boot with some special flag?
