I apologize for not having answered right away, but I was sick (fever
A new folder for custom kexts just like the acpi one would be nice. I'm trying for some time to find out how to integrate kexts into the installer but no one seams to know or at least no one answered me how.
What i mean is where to put kexts on a bootable osx installer usb to have them installed automatically to S/L/E with the system, so at first boot, have network, custom AppleHDA and such in the S/L/E
This can also be done, but only worried when user must install only a kext plug-in or non Apple extensions. However, we'll do, Marchrius already showed me to implement such a thing...
Hi, I'm new in insanelymac forum, and I thank the effort to make easier install OSx and this project for make that possible.
I think, the pandora's project is the most advanced method to install OSx in specific hardware own. In the guide of this post, I assume Pandora creates the optimal installer for specific hardware before install, but I have some question about this, that's means you can install OSx in any hardware, or you need select the right or recomended hardware before install? I say this because is more dificult instal OSx in Laptop, but Pandora offers the option for laptops, only selecting any options without take in count specific model of laptop.
I don't know if for example, is possible install Lion or Mountain Lion, in Sandy Bridge Systems, because the new Imac are Ivy Bridge Systems.
Another question, in the SMBIOS, what is the more important to choose the characteristics? I don't be sure about the model to choose and this is very important for the type of hardware for OSx installer, and is very important boot properly, the MB option, NullCPU Power Management, AHCI Injector, WIFI Injector.... I assume that options you can know in the specifications MB.
I hope help, but for now, i'm learning thanks to this forum's members, this will be my first Hackintosh.
Sandy Bridge laptops?
Simple, choose smbios of MacbookPro8,1, with this automatic active the Intel HD3000 mobile.
Only problem when Laptop screen has more than 1400x pixels, then after serving dsdt with "Dual Link" patch for high-resolution display. Some time ago I asked Ermac to do something about it. If he does this, we will also put in Pandora.
However, during installation you have to choose all the choices for laptops, but also check the choice for NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, because there is a problem with natural power management in Sandy Bridge Systems (NullCPU is a kext that disables AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext). When you have installed and after the first boot, you can re-open Pandora, and patch AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement with a special option available to patch AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext to make it working also on Sandy/Ivy Bridge CPUs (then probably also work the Sleep, and with better battery consuption etc).
AHCI injector? I do not know if you need, but if you're able to get the OSx GUI installation, then you do not need him!
However, the first time you make a Hackintosh, everything will not be perfect, ...after you will like to be able to find solutions
I forgot to ask, is the script set to remove the TyMCE kext when selecting a MacPro smbios ?
This will be done in BETA 2
I just needed for Lnx2Mac kext to load at the first boot, and for that i need to slipstream it to S/L/E in the installer.
Option for this is already available, and kext is installed inside IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns.

You might try choosing retail installation on USB stick, and see if that happens anyway?
You will not see "Insanely Options", but it is curious to know if it's the same!
