Hi!

I would like to thank anyone that helps me get this solved

My issue is that I get a kernel panic when i try to install Mountain Lion 10.8.2

I have a Gigabyte Z77-DS3H motherboard with a i5-3570k, and a GTX660 Nvida graphics card


I have made a full running virtual machine of Mountain Lion, everything working. I have the ORIGINAL BOUGHT DVD, and I made a dmg image from that.
I have tried to use both ##### and myhack to try to install it to a 8gb usb, but they fail to boot.

I get this error on booting:

I thought that this hardware would be easy to install Mountain Lion on, but i am desperate, I have tried the following commands while booting, and the same thing:

-x
-x -v
GraphicsEnabler=no
-v PCIRootUID=0

Also, something similar to ncpi=0x2000 (trying also with 3000)

No luck so far



Anyone can help me?
THANKS!!

Hi!

First, is there something like a Mountain Lion DVD you can buy? Never heard of that. ;)

Second, this is graphics card issue. Try GraphicsEnabler=Yes. If it doesn't work, remove the GTX660 and boot only with the HD4000, using GraphicsEnabler=Yes.

All the best!

Hi,

This is not a kernel panic, my guess would be it has something to do with the graphics.
First have a look at this topic:
Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Mac Install Guide


Does the system have dual graphics? If so, try disabling one of them in the Bios.

Also, boot with GraphicsEnabler=Yes.
You can also try to delete the graphics kexts from the installers /System/Library/Extensions folder, delete everything that starts with NVDA and GeForce.

I did not explain myself correctly. I am sorry for that. I have the Snow Leopard DVD, and then i update to Mountain Lion

I am going to try to do what you say as soon as a download is over.

Is it possible to deactivate de GTX660 without removing it physically?

Thanks a lot for such a quick answer!

The optimal solution is to simply disable it in the BIOS (set primary display as IGFX and internal graphics as enabled) or remove the card completely, if the BIOS method is not possible.

Best regards!

Hi!

I tried everything in this post you recommend me: http://www.insanelym...-install-guide/

I followed it step by step, checking everything and still I cannot get MAC OS X to even boot to the installation screen.

See what I get:

By the way, in all my attempts to make a hackintosh, I have made useless 3 virtual machines running MAC OSX and my main pc w8 PRO installation....


And I did try with internal graphics only, and no luck

Anyone?

After removing the kexts, boot with -v -f.
Sorry, forgot about the kernel cache.

Do not boot from the Windows partition directly, select the System Reserved partition. :)

Boot into Windows 7 installation DVD and select repair this computer :) will fix the bootloader...

If you dont have the DVD, boot into Chameleon boot cd, select system reseved, while its booting hard restart do it again hard rrestart again and if you go to chameleon boot cd and select system reserved again, there should be "Startup Repair" option...that should reinstall the win7 bootloader :)

I have the windows 8 pro installation DVD.

If I do repair this pc in the windows 8 installation, will it affect my Mountain Lion installation? Will I be able to boot to both of them?

Regards and thanks for the help!

Hi,
I tried with the repair option, but no luck, it said it couldnt do anything.

I have no idea how to select system reserved. Can you tell me exactly how to get there? I dont know what "chameleon boot cd" means, I have a 8gb usb drive, from which I installed MAC OS X...

In my previous post, i have a screenshot of the option I have...

Any help?

Regards!!
