Greetings to all the wonderful and helpful people around!
I have an Asus Q200E with the following specs:
- Intel® Core™ i3 2365M (1.40GHz)
- 11.6" Atmel maxTouch Digitizer touchscreen
- ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad
- 4GB Memory
- 500GB HDD, 5400rpm
- Intel® HD Graphics 3000
- Qualcomm Atheros AR8162/8166/8168 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)
- Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wireless Network Adapter
- 2 USB 2.0 ports (Intel® 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller)
- 1 USB 3.0 port (Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller)
- 1 HDMI port
- 1 VGA port
- 1 MMC SD reader
- USB2.0 UVC HD Webcam
- Audio jack
As of right now, OS X versions 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9, all have been tried on this notebook and each time a different error happens:
Lion would boot and let me format the drive, but when the selection menu appears, the following message does as well:
Bookmark failed to issue extension for item
Then the installer prompts me to reboot, so it's an endless loop.
I tried Mountain Lion, but then the following error message appeared:
PCI configuration changed (bridge=x device=y cardbus=z)
Up to this point, several fixes were tried, including every imaginable boot flag on the internet. After many failures, patched IOPCIfamily.kext from Netkas was installed, along with a SMBios.plist and (unpatched) DSDT.aml, one by one and all of them at the same time, then it progressed a little bit further until the following error:
(stuck for like 10 minutes)
ApplePS2ALPSGlidePoint: Dictionary Object: HIDDefaultParameters Value: ??
I also tried a 10.7.4 installer, but this time it was another thing:
DRMStatus: iTunes/Apple Store content access Problem. Content playback may be disabled on this computer.You can continue to use the machine, but you should contact an Apple support representative. ErrorCode: 8877652
In all these cases, myHack 3.2 BETA 8 was used (because even if this computer is giving me troubles, the tool itself isn't the problem). I've tried also MBR patching, but nothing.
Has anyone encountered a similar problem?
The only thing left for me to do is try to patch the DSDT.aml myself, but frankly that's a mistery to me.
Here's the DSDT.aml from this computer if anyone can patch it for me.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

I was able to boot to the installer
Now just some kexts are missing.
I will update later.
