Its always a hit and miss process when it comes to hackintosh.
When you install make sure you remove all connected devices in the usb ports and disable nvidia in the bios.
since you are not using the provided DSDT, or you wont be able to boot.
do NOT install anything in PATCH 1 and EXTRA, do not delete NullCPUPM
(until you find a working DSDT/SSDT)
Yeah, I figured out a way to get past this error while booting which was to select IOPCIFamily within the installation package, and to not disable the Nvidia card within the installation (Still set to integrated in BIOS however). After the install booted, I used MB (Not mentionable here..) to install VoodooHDA 0.2.72 and selected "Use SSE2" withing the VoodooHDA section of System Preferences. I also used the VoodooBattery kexts to get my battery meter working as the Kexts provided in Patch1 do not work. So far, this is what I've gotten working on the TimelineX 3830tg-6412 (Core i3-2310m, 1GB GT540m, 750GB HDD, 4GB Ram)
- WiFi (Works after install)
- USB 2 Ports
- CPU (No Speedstep..)
- Sound (VoodooHDA)
- Battery Meter (VoodooBattery)
- HD 3000 Graphics (But horribly glitchy, even with FakeSMC 4.2)
- Sleep (Looks like it works!)
- Screen Brightness
- GT 540m
- Trackpad functions (KPs when I try to use the track pad kext found in the Patch 2 folder)
- Anything else not listed above
I would really appreciate any help with getting my screen brightness working as the current brightness hurts my eyes when I try to use the damn thing
. The screen brightness is the thing function I need the most right now! Also, the graphics glitches are really annoying and I've tried various versions of FakeSMC but I can't seem to get it to stop, any ideas? The battery life is also pretty bad, I can watch the battery drain at around 1% every 5 minutes.
One more thing; If I fix the Windows 8 bootloader and use EasyBCD to create an entry for OS X, will the install still boot? I'm under the impression that if I do this, the Windows Bootloader will overwrite the Chameleon boot arguments.
Yet another thing, do you know where I can find the patch required for our boards in order to compile a DSDT? I tried looking on "olarila" but they don't have one for the x830 series, they got one for the 3820 though, but I highly doubt that will work.
