Posted elsewhere but suggested I post here also, I am trying to get any form of Mac OS X to install on my Hardware:
ASUS M4N98TD Evo - Nvidia 980A (MCP72) Chipset Nvidia NF200 SLI chip
2x4GB 1600Mhz RAM
AMD 1090T processor six core (runs at 3.9Ghz all cores in Windows)
Gigabyte Nvidia GTX470 SOC graphics
XFX 850W silver PSU
Self build machine.
I have tried to get Mountain lion going, tried various boot flags, it starts up but gets stuck at mount image, root device and then some hex code, it gets stuck here every time, also it says that couldn't get USB chip to halt within 100ms and also says something about HFS freeblocks being 0.
I have installed Macdrive and have formatted a separate HDD (500GB) with GUID and HFS+
Sounds like the install cannot see the drive though??
Not very experienced with the world of macs, very limited experience as end user at college, Imacs and mini macs, I am only interested in running Apple Logic really, used this at college and its really the only music software that I have ever got on with, anything else I am content enough in Windows, but haven't liked any Windows based music production stuff.
Could someone please explain how to install custom kexts and the like, how to customise an install, somebody has mentioned an Nforce ATA kext, Have to say I wont use the Nforce drivers for SATA in windows, they play havoc with everything. MSAHCI is enabled though so no worries with non boot Windows.
AHCI and S3 enabled in BIOS, reset to defaults when trying install, even tried with just 4GB ram. Turned off C1E, cool and quiet and secure virtual machine mode.
Tried lots of boot flags also, arch=i386 -force64 cpus=1 busratio=16 npci=0x2000/0x3000 PCIRootUID=1/0 USBBusFix=Yes idlehalt=0 EHCIacquire=Yes UHCIreset=Yes GraphicsEnabler=Yes???
A couple of others too!
Thanks in advance.
