I've been setting up an AMD Hackintosh with Lion 10.7.5, and I'm unable to make my internal optical drive (cd/dvd) recognized.
I previously had a Snow Leopard 10.6.8 installation on this same PC, which ran successfully for more than 2 years. Now, I have to say I'm impressed with the evolution of the 'amd hackintosh' scene, I was impressed by the ease I had installing Lion 10.7.5.
I used myHack to create the bootable USB install and used Bronzovka's mach_rc13 kernel for it to boot, and I installed Lion without a hitch! I'm also booting into Lion successfully, graphics are apparently working correctly with QE/CI, Ethernet, USB ports. It even reads my motherboard and gfx sensors correctly almost out of the box! Such thing gave me major headaches on Snow Leopard.
Anyway, my cd/dvd drive is the only thing so far that is not being recognized. I tried searching for any info regarding this: I found that some people had this problem in Mountain Lion, and the workaround was to use Lion's IOAHCIFamily.kext and AppleAHCIPort.kext. Don't know if it is related to my problem or not.
I experimented with #####'s 3rd Party Sata, IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector, JMicron36x ATA but nothing made my optical drive work.
My specs are:
Mobo: Asus M4A79XTD evo
CPU: Phenom II x4 955
GFX: ATI 5770
Optical drive is an IDE Philips dvd/rw, and the hard drives are all sata 3gb.
Thank you guys for all the available tutorials and general valuable info, and thank you Bronzovka, Nawcom, AnV, etc, for the work put into these awesome kernels.
