Latest update is just that, an update. It does NOT include everything required to get the system up and running. Download both archives to get everything needed for a fresh install.
RehabMan created a patch to apply to the vanilla kernel. Use the info from his blog here to apply the patch and use that kernel instead.

-OR-

Current versions of Clover also support patching the kernel on-the-fly using RehabMan's kernel patch. Simply enable the "kernelpm" option in your config.plist to enable it.

- Has since been replaced and upgraded to something compatible.
- Bluetooth in this device worked OOB before the swap.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

AC/Battery Fix:
Requirements:
- You need a DSDT for this, with it some DSDT experience is a must.
Both clean & edited DSDTs are acceptable. Just make sure devices BAT0 & AC are both clean and unedited.
- MaciASL: http://sourceforge.n...ojects/maciasl/
- RehabMan's ACPI Battery kext: https://github.com/R...-Battery-Driver
Delete any other battery injectors and revert AppleSmartBatteryManager.kext to stock before proceeding.
- RehabMan's repo patches: https://github.com/R...ptop-DSDT-Patch
Instructions to add the repo to MaciASL are also on the page.
 
1) After adding the repo to MaciASL, everything is pretty self explainitory.
2) Open your DSDT or use the one generated by MaciASL.
3) Click the Patch button and select the patch named "HP Envy 17t", this is the battery patch
4) Press Apply and you should see "92 Patches, 99 Changes, 0 Rejects"
5) Close the Patch window, press the Compile button to make sure you don't have compile errors that need fixing.
6) Provided everything worked out, select File-->Save As... and save your newly edited DSDT.aml
7) Backup your new DSDT.aml somewhere safe and reopen it with MaciASL
8) We'll now apply the AC adapter fix. Click the Patch button again except this time, select the patch labeled "AC Adapter Fix"
9) Press Apply again and then repeat steps 5-6 to create another DSDT.
10) Add your DSDT to whatever bootloader you are using, reboot and test it out.
11) Your battery icon should appear in the menubar and AC device should have loaded AppleACPIACAdapter.kext in ioreg.
 
AW-CE123H Wireless+Bluetooth Fix:
[Tested with 10.9.2]
 
-Requires DSDT patch and injector!
-Can also be done with ONLY an injector but 5GHz WiFi will NOT work.

First things first. The DSDT patch needs to be applied. Use the info provided below for reference. Since I can't make patches for {censored}, this is the best I can do. With my DSDT, this code needs to be added to _SB.PCI0/RP03/PXSX.

Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
{
If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
{
Return (Buffer (One)
{
0x03
})
}
Return (Package (0x08)
{
"device-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0xA0, 0x43, 0x00, 0x00
},
"subsystem-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x17, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00

}
})
}

Now we need to get Dual Band working. Properly activating Dual Band, 5GHz WiFi proved to be a challenge for me initially. The reason why was because I was still unfamiliar with the patching system Clover uses and I wasn't comfortable converting all of my kext patches for use with it at the time. So, I wasted many hours trying to put together an injector that would override the original kext and it always failed. Something about the way that kext loads prevented my injector from working as many of my other ones did.

Long story short, I eventually converted all of my kext injector patches into Clover patches instead and here is the code I made to activate 5GHz WiFi using Clover's kext patching system. This patch MUST be added into your config.plist in order to work! Add it under KextsToPatch, which is located below KernelAndKextPatches.

The injector is ONLY needed to get Bluetooth functioning. I will not be going into the process of creating the injector as it would be too complex for me to try to explain. Many others have documented the process though and should be referred to if needed. My downloadable files will (at some point) include a Bluetooth injector for use.

HDMI Audio Fix:
[Tested with 10.9.2-10.9.4]

 

AppleHDA codec injection:
AppleHDA needs patching to allow the HDMI codec to function. This can be done in two ways but I will only cover the one I can verify works. Credits to TimeWalker75a for posting this info. Simply add this to your config.plist for Clover:

<key>KextsToPatch</key>
<array>
<dict>
<key>Comment</key>
<string>HDAU 0c0b -&gt; 0c0c</string>

This will patch AppleHDA to allow our HDMI audio codec (0c0c) to load properly. AFAIK, the machine must be booted without caches and the caches must be rebuilt before this patch will work.

Azul Framebuffer bin-patch:

[Tested with 10.9.2-10.9.4]
 

Provided 0x0a260006 is used as the ig-platform-id, HDMI audio support can be added in with a bin patch to AppleIntelFramebufferAzul. Here is what needs fixing:

0600 260A 0103 0303 0000 0002 0000 0001
0000 6000 0000 0040 D90A 0000 D90A 0000

0400 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
0000 0000 0000 0000

and change it to this:

0600 260A 0103 0303 0000 0002 0000 0001
0000 6000 0000 0040 D90A 0000 D90A 0000

0100 0000 4000 0000 0F00 0000 0101 0000
0400 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
0000 0000 0000 0000

Mavericks will not allow HDMI audio from any other value other than 00 08 00 00 as the connector-type and this edit will fix that. This took me some time to figure out since all the information on framebuffer patching is dedicated to desktop versions of the HD 4600. Enjoy! :)

-OR-

Use this patch I put together to patch Azul using Clover's patching system. Direct kext modifications can be avoided by using this patch! I can't guarantee this will work forever though since i've already noticed the code change in Azul between one of the OS X updates. I will try to track down whatever changes in between updates and post them accordingly. For now though, this works. This patch MUST be added into your config.plist in order to work! Add it under KextsToPatch, which is located below KernelAndKextPatches.

10.9.3/10.9.4 Graphical Artifacts Fix:
[Tested with 10.9.4] 
 

As of 10.9.3, I noticed my setup was experiencing some new, annoying artifacts and other graphical problems. Since the laptop isn't my main working machine, time passed before I saw this as a major issue and by the time I got around to trying to fix it, 10.9.4 was out. So I updated and I noticed the problem still existed. Immediately, I assumed it was caused by the HDMI audio Azul FB patch that I put together awhile back (listed above), but removing the patch made no difference so I looked into it a bit further...
 
Upon closer examination, I noticed it was indeed related the Azul kext but was not related to my previous HDMI patch. Now, it wouldn't be surprising to say that Apple has been revising the Azul kext since Mavericks was released since they revise everything, all the time. That's why they release updates. However, that is exactly what seems to be causing the graphical problems. Long story short, Apple broke the code for us. My Azul FB patch is out of date too, which is just adding the headache. Here is the dilemma, the patch still works, it just doesn't work properly on anything after 10.9.2.  So I won't just remove it. The old patch should stay for those who are using 10.9.2 and below. What we need is a fix for the later versions of Mavericks...
 
 
It's not pretty but here is a temporary fix for the issue in 10.9.4. This utilizes Clover's patching system so this fix will ONLY work with Clover or boot loaders with a similar patching system.

What does this do exactly? Well, it's quite an ugly trick. All this does is replace the entire 0x0a260006 section (which is what our ig-platform value is) and reverts it to how it was in the 10.9.2 kext. The only change is that I applied the HDMI audio FB patch to it too (listed above) so my HDMI audio works with this too.
 
So, why can't we just replace the 10.9.4 Azul kext with the 10.9.2 version you may be asking. Well, technically you could just do that. That is after all, exactly what this patch does. The difference being that using this patch, the system still believes it is using the stock, 10.9.4 version, which essentially tricks the OS into believing it is signed and valid, which from my understanding of the upcoming Yosemite, keeping the system tricked this way will be vital to keeping hacks working with OS X.
 
So it really just boils down to preference. I like to keep my /S/L/E as clean as possible. So i'll keep using/updating this patch as needed unless something better comes along to fix this. Other people can simply downgrade their Azul kext to the 10.9.2 version if they want. All in all, it accomplishes the same thing. Just be sure to reboot without caches and rebuild them if using my patch to make sure it's being applied properly. Enjoy! :D

hello

 

try this one

 

Attached File  DSDT.aml.zip   32.46KB   75 downloads

 

must use macbookair6,1 smbios

 

probably with that smbios u should have update from apple to have a proper kernel to that cpu

 

and optimus thec never have support in hackintosh.. so only should work is intel hd

 

and hp machines is well know issue with lapic fix , probably u must use also the kernel patcher.. must test..

 

good hack

Thank you for the fast reply, artur-pt! I REALLY appreciate the DSDT! I'll try it out and let you know how it goes. :)

 

I searched forever to find an smbios for a newer MacBookAir like the 6,1 or 6,2 but can't find anything. I've had to resort to using a MacBookPro8,3 smbios I made using Chameleon Wizard.

 

Sorry to trouble you again but could you point me to one? :(

Arrrg! I give up for now. I am trying to edit my DSDT to disable Nvidia Optimus to test out my HD 4600 but I have NO clue where to begin. All the guides i've found online either reference to methods I don't have or they are all targeted at ASUS desktop mobos. This doesn't help me one bit!

 

Can anyone please help me do this? :(

no need for now to disable nvidia.. what u need now is to install and have a minimum setup..

 

the nvidia must people try to disable by dsdt to save battery.

 

the kernel patcher should do that fix

Being a UEFI-based system, I'd strong recommend you move to Clover instead of Chameleon. Its a bit more difficult to set up but its worth it. 

If you insist on Chameleon, make sure you enable legacy boot in UEFI setup menu. (might break windows so take care).

 

Also, on some newer HP laptops, the UEFI (InsydeH2O) may have an option to enable APIC (to fix lapic error).

 

Try this:

Power off, then press "F10" and "A" simultaneously then power on the laptop while those 2 buttons are pressed. You'll hear some beeps and then the setup screen will appear.

Go to Advanced -> Tables -> APIC and enable it.

Thanks for the link but i've already been looking through that site. I just don't know if I could ever utilize anything from it. :(

 

I understand what you are saying but I only wanted to disable my nvidia chip so that maybe I can get QE/CI working on my intel one. From what i've read, the HD 4600 has support under OS X, while nothing from the GeForce GT 7xx series works yet. Figured it was my best shot. Doesn't matter anyway, I can't figure it out yet. :(

Power off, then press "F10" and "A" simultaneously then power on the laptop while those 2 buttons are pressed. You'll hear some beeps and then the setup screen will appear.

Go to Advanced -> Tables -> APIC and enable it. 

Appreciate all the info! I did play around with Clover initially. Sadly, it is very confusing and I could never get OS X to load using it. Kept getting hangs after kextcache/kernelcache loading. Could it have been because I was using an older USB HDD for testing? I also believe that maybe it lacks proper/updated CPU patching, especially for Haswells but that's based solely on what i've read online. Considering I know Chameleon very well and needed to get the system up and running first to help eliminate what the system needs and doesn't need, I opted to use Chameleon until I had everything as setup as I could get it. I just wish I knew Clover. I looked around at many tutorials for it but none of them were very helpful. Ultimately though, my deciding factor was reading that Clover doesn't handle OS X + Windows on the same HDD well or at all while Chameleon never gave me much trouble with that. I'd like to use it but I need to have Windows on the same HDD. Maybe i'll have to give it another shot sometime soon. :)

 

*sigh* You are mostly correct, I do have the Insyde H2O UEFI/BIOS and  I also tried out your button combo but had no luck. It just brought me to the settings and beeped a million times since I was holding the exit key down. Unless I did something wrong, it never gave me any extra options in the BIOS/UEFI settings. :(

 

Thanks anyway! I'll take any help I can get. :D

hello

 

cleary none of the loaders have support to that hardware..

 

and using a smbios macbookpro8,1 is not a good choice

 

u can use the board id for macbookair6,1 and read... is in pikes link

 

Mac-35C1E88140C3E6CF

 

and try to start doing a smbios.. at least with right things

 

don't expect a easy hack...

 

good hack

Thanks for the reply! I forgot to mention that I usually use the MBA6,1 smbios but it stopped because it doesn't do anything noticeably different than using the MBP8,1 smbios. Besides, when I used the MBA bios, it won't let me install Mountain Lion. Without any benefits yet, it doesn't seem to matter which smbios I use.

Im a bit confused, what do you mean by "try to start doing a smbios.. at least with right things"? I don't understand what you are trying to say. :(

I never expected anything to be easy. I've done this many times before and it was rarely easy, or simple. I was just hoping to get some DSDT help. I don't expect anyone to do all this for me, just guide me to some resourses though. That would be very nice.

Anyways, thanks for replying. I'll do what I can for now to get something else working but without DSDT help, I'm probably going nowhere fast. If any updates arise, I'll let the thread know. If anyone has any DSDT assistance to offer, please don't be shy. I'll take all the helpful tips I can get. :D

hello

 

doing a hackintosh is simulating a real mac...

 

the smbios give info to the system what type of machine are in use...

 

and that info is used for several kext and kernel different way if u have a smbios mbp8,1 it is a sandy bridge cpu with intelhd3000

 

is that what u have ?

 

good hack

Done a bit of testing over the last few days and sadly, I've got little to report. I tried out a newer revision of Clover to see if I could get it to boot and still no luck, so for now, i'm still stuck with Chameleon. I've been using a MBA6,1-6,2 smbios setup lately and I am not prompted to update. From what i've read, recovery mode needa to be used and i haven't had time to try to set one up. Besides, none of my hacks have OOB internet access. So, no custom kernel for me.

Guess I just have to wait a bit longer for Apple to make announcements and hope they are in my favor.

How's everything going with this? I just bought an HP Envy touchsmart m7-j010dx (rather similar to your model it would appear, though my graphics are integrated HD4600 ugh) I'm hoping to experiment with hackintoshing this, it will be my 3rd laptop I've tried with. The previous were a toshiba satellite I bought 4 years ago and ran SL on (with no luck on QE/CI) the second was a Qosmio I got earlier this year, and couldn't get my GPU to play nice with ML... Luckily (I suppose) the qosmio overheated and shutdown so often that I complained to toshiba and they were no help, then I called Tiger and they made an exception and accepted it for return (4 months after purchase) so now I have this envy, and it looks quite a bit like it wishes it were a 17" macbook pro. So I feel I would like to try to grant my laptop it's wish. HAHAHA

Check over the thread and it will explain how this is going. In short, it could be worse but it has plenty of room for improvement. As much as I hate it, gotta wait for Apple to make their next move before anything else can really be accomplished. Not having MQ kernel support is really hurting this ATM.

Your best bet is to play around with it for now. Just do me the favor and update the thread (or direct to yours if you have one) so we can keep the information together and readily available for everyone to get.

If you can, dump your DSDT and post it up. If they are really that similar, I'd be interested in cross-referencing yours and mine. It might help solve a few riddles. ;p

I have the same laptop as the op. I haven't been able to boot nothing. This will be my third laptop as well installing osx. This laptop is a whole new beast. I have no clue about DSDT's. Would be nice to see support for this super fast laptop. I'm alittle nervous about fooling around and messing something up. I just received it 5 days ago. :)

Hi there bogaton. Good to meet someone else with this new toy. :)

Good news is ML runs on it. Tested 10.8.0-10.8.4 and it works well. At least, as well as a system with so few working pieces can work. 10.8.5b & 10.9 sadly do not currently work. I havent found a way around the KPs and reboots yet. Chameleon is the only boot loader I've gotten to work with it. All the varients of it should work too, provided they are up to date. Clover sadly doesn't yet work with it. Which sucks considering it's the boot loader we want to use with our UEFI. Hopefully, it gets support soon.

As I informed warlikewings, we must wait on both Apple and on support fixes. Not much that can be done right now but it hasn't stopped me from experimenting. Ultimately, we have to hope support for our MQ Haswells are included in the new mach_kernel. That is the main reason i've been fighting so much with 10.8.5b & 10.9. They only seem to support ULT Haswell. Our best bet is to get our DSDT and probably our SSDT ready. I only have minor experience with DSDT and virtually none for SSDT so that'll be an interesting test.

I usually post my current setup files so others can test but I've been busy lately and haven't had a chance to. Perhaps if I can, I'll add them up tomorrow. Then you can test with me. Just remember to post your findings so we can all benefit from any discoveries.

Good luck to us all. :)

Hey gygabyte666,

I have absolutely no experience with DSDT or SSDT nor how to extract them (especially only running windows 8.1 developer preview atm) but if you can help me figure out how to extract that I'll gladly post so you can compare (spoon feed me please, lol.) I'm not a total n00b, but I never really put any focus on learning about dsdt stuff because I was mostly able to get functionality without it in the past.

 

I'm hoping, and expecting that 10.8.5 or 10.9 will support the mq's soon, I would imagine the new MacBook Pro's will probably have similar processors (if not the same) as ours. Doesn't the new air run an mq processor? I could be mistaken, but I thought it did when I glanced at the specs. 


I built a 10.8.4 stick using pandora on my girlfriend's MacBook Pro and can't even boot the damn USB, my bios settings are very limited in options but it always dies at something real close to the start that says "Root device UUID: xxxxxxxxxxxx" with numbers that I can't recall. Have you run into that? What are your bios settings, and how do suggest I proceed (if you don't mind my asking) this is the first time I'm totally stuck even just booting an os x installer, normally by now I'd be running a semi functional system and tearing my hair from roots trying to figure out the QE/CI issues that I usually run into. Lol

=============READ THIS==============

THIS GUIDE IS OUTDATED AND IS RARELY UPDATED! I have received a liquid a*s-TON of PMs from random people trying to get "this setup" or "that fixed" and I am getting overwhelmed because of them. Look, I don't mind helping people out but PM-ing me directly is a BAD way to go about getting it. First of all, I am quite busy, it might take me awhile to get to you. Secondly, there is an entire support thread RIGHT HERE, so use it. That way everyone who visits this thread has the benefit of whatever is discussed, not just you. You'll also probably get faster answers since you're not just waiting for me to respond to you. Lastly and this one is pretty important. READ THE ENTIRE THREAD BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS. Many answers to common questions are already on this thread but you have to read through it to find them. When I can, i'll try to make an FAQs section or something but for now, you gotta do a little digging. Nothing is more annoying than getting a PM from 3 different people asking the same question when the answer is right on the thread. Please just keep this in mind if you're new to the forum/thread and you have a question, concern or are just looking for what to do next. This guide can still help you get the USB drive setup properly in preparation for an install but anything beyond that is questionable. Thank you. ^_^

=============READ THIS=============

 

Sure thing, I don't mind helping. There are several ways to extract your dsdt/ssdt but i suggest this if you still have Windows. Keep in mind that I am only providing a download link to the software you need. I will not be providing a guide for this because there are a million guides for extraction online and most of them are still very accurate, even though the software name changed, the process is still the same. Google is your friend. You can obtain the trial software of AIDA64 Business (formerly Everest) here: http://www.aida64.com/downloads/a64be

 

For dsdt/ssdt editing, I will not be diving into that for many reasons but mostly because I am am still very much learning it myself and I don't feel confident enough giving someone else pointers or tips on it ATM. Secondly, because it is extremely VAST and DETAILED. I just don't have that kind of time. Again though, guides exist for it and should be looked into. Good luck finding patches and fixes for your newer hardware though. As far as i'm concerned, not much exists yet.

 

DISCLAIMER: I can be in no way held responsible for any damage to your computer as a result of this guide. I have been doing this for many years and have never experienced any issues resulting from my way of doing things. That said, I can't be held responsible for the faults and errors of those who follow (or choose not to follow) my advise. You are on your own if you proceed. This is a rather generic guide but still, It must be mentioned that this guide was written with the assumption that anyone following it would be using the SAME machine model as mine. Using any other model is unsupported and you may require further modifications to get your system to work. You may also run into problems that I did not. Keep this in mind if you choose to continue...

 

First of all, you're going to hate me because of what i'm going to ask for you to do. Ready for it? You're gonna need to redo your entire USB stick. I don't use Pandora or any other "shortcut" tools to help me and I probably never will. I also can't suggest anyone else use them either. Especially, newer less-experienced users because they typically just lead to more confusion. I always rely on doing things the "hard-manual" way. That way I can keep track of what gets installed vs. what isn't installed. I suggest you do the same. You might think it's pretty stupid or a waste of time now but if something should break, you'll be glad since you should have the knowledge in order to fix it by doing things the long way.

 

Now then, let's get started here. You're gonna need some stuff to get all nice and setup. First things first, download this [UPDATED]: Attached File  Envy17t-j000_MountainLion.zip   213.9KB   96 downloads. It contains all the kexts i've used to get ML running on MY model. It's missing Chameleon r2255 and a ML installable smbios.plst (both of which you'll need). Chameleon you can get from here on IM. You can snag that here: http://www.insanelym...ameleon-22-svn/ and the smbios I have decided to just upload to you, since it's easier than trying to explain how to make one. You can get that here: Attached File  MBP83_smbios.zip   507bytes   84 downloads

 

After you've downloaded all the needed files, extract them somewhere where you will know where to find them. Now the breakdown. The files you got from my zip archive contain the needed drivers for OS X to work on the laptop. Now most of the hardware in this laptop is unsupported and won't work. That said, I suggest you have a USB mouse handy, since you're built-in trackpad will likely NOT work with the OS X installer. The keyboard should work and i've setup the graphics to use MY full resolution (1920x1080) Your configuration may be different than mine. If so, you'll need to adjust that to your resolution, otherwise you're gonna hit a black screen possibly. More on that in a bit.

 

Now then, you need to create a USB disk. Follow along below and we'll get the ball rolling.

1) You need to find the InstallESD.dmg for ML. It's located inside the Install OS X Mountain Lion.app from the Mac App Store. right-click it and choose "show package contents" to view inside of it.

2) Navigate to "Contents/SharedSupport/" and you should see the InstallESD.dmg you need. Simply copy/paste it to your desktop or somewhere you can get to it easily.

3) Now it's time for reformat that USB stick. Open Disk Utility (from /Applications/Utilities)

4) Locate your USB stick on the left pane and click it to select it. Select the "Partition" tab.

5) Click the Current pull down menu and select 1 Partition (or two depending on your needs, the installer only needs about 6.5GB).

6) Before anything else, make sure to click on Options on the bottom and choose GUID partition table. Now, make sure your new partition's format is set to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Set the name to MLInstaller or something short and easy to remember.

7) Click Apply after everything is as it should be. Let it do it's thing.

8) Afterwards, you'll have a new partition all formatted and ready for the OS X installer. You should now see that MLInstaller has been added to the left pane. Click it to select it.

9) Now we need to clone the installer onto your USB stick. Locate the InstallESD.dmg you copied earlier and double-click it to mount it.

10) You should see it both on the desktop and listed under Disk Utility. We're not cloning this image though. We need the BaseSystem.dmg, which is located inside of this image. It is hidden though by default. So you need to make sure you have hidden files set to on. I'll run through that first.

11) To turn on hidden files, you need to open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities), type this line in and press enter:

defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

Next we have to restart Finder so the changes will take effect. Using Terminal again, type in this line and press enter again. The Finder will reboot, don't worry it'll only take a second:

killall Finder

Now you have the abilities to see all hidden files in the OS X Finder.

12) Go back to your mounted InstallESD.dmg. Open it up and you should now see BaseSystem.dmg. Again, double-click it to mount it.

13) With it mounted, you should now see both Mac OS X Install ESD and Mac OS X Base System listed in Disk Utility. Now we're ready for a clone restore.

14) Click on your MLInstall partition again to select it. This time choose the Restore tab.

15) We need to restore Base System, NOT the Install ESD. So right click on the Base System and choose to set it as source. Next, click and drag your MLInstall partition to the Destination window.

16) After all that is set, just click on the Restore button at the bottom and wait for the cloning process to finish. It won't take long.

17) After that's done, we need to fix a few things before installing Chameleon. You're MLInstall partition will have been renamed after the restore to Mac OS X Base System. I suggest renaming it again to MLInstall for simplicity. Do that on the desktop now. I assume you know how to do this.

18) After the renaming, open MLInstall and navigate to "System/Installation" You should see an alias named Packages. Delete this file. We need to copy the REAL packages folder into this area.

19) While keeping that window open, you need to open another one. Open up the Mac OS X Install ESD from the desktop and you should see the Packages folder staring in your face. Copy this folder  to where the alias was you just deleted inside MLInstall. Be patient, this will take some time.

20) We're almost done, now we just need the remaining things copied over. This next part is best done using Terminal again. So open it up and get ready for some command fun. :)

21) We need to copy more things from Mac OS X Install ESD to your USB mounted MLInstall. These things are small and won't take long but they have special permissions that should be retained while copying them, which is something they will lose if copied using the Finder. Terminal can keep them intact, which is why we're using it again. For each command line, press enter to run them:

cd /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD
sudo cp -Rp boot.efi kernelcache mach_kernel /Volumes/MLInstall

22) Now we're done with the installer setup! You can now unmount/eject everything except your USB stick. Feel free to exit both Disk Utility and Terminal too. Really, the only thing left to do is install Chameleon and set it up.

 

Install and properly setup Chameleon:

 

1) I assume you can find and run the installer alone, just read through this first and keep it in mind as you do. MAKE SURE YOU SELECT YOUR USB STICK LABELED MLInstall! Chameleon can really screw up a real Mac by installing it to it. So pay very close attention during that part.

2) Choose Advanced install for Chameleon and select modules-->KernelPatcher.dylib during install. If the KernelPatcher isn't installed, ML's kernel will fail to load and you will get a reboot upon loading it. You really won't need anything else listed. My zip archive includes everything you'll need to get it up and running. Themes are the only other optional things you could choose to add.

3) After Chameleon is installed, navigate to MLInstall/Extra. Make sure that KernelPatcher.dylib is installed by opening the modules folder. After that, go back to the previous folder (root of Extra).

4) Now it's finally time to use the zip archive you downloaded from my first post. Extract it if you haven't already and open the folder up. You'll see two folders. One named Extra and one named S/L/E. You might assume you know what to do now, but you're probably wrong. So follow along.

5) This archive was designed for those who ALREADY have OS X installed. Not for installing OS X. So the setup is a little different. Open my Extra folder, and follow along.

6) If you need to edit my plist, now is the time. If you're monitor's MAX resolution is below 1980x1080, then you need to edit my orig.chameleon.Boot.plist now. Otherwise, you don't need to. If you need to edit it, use TextEdit (/Applications). Open the plist up with TextEdit and replace this:

	<string>1920x1080x32</string>

With whatever your laptop needs. Then save it and close. :)

7) Now that's out of the way. You need to copy orig.chameleon.Boot.plist to your USB stick. Copy it into your Extra folder now. Ignore everything else in my Extra folder for now. You shouldn't use my dsdt since it might cause you problems during install and my smbios.plist is for a new MacBookAir6,1, which uses a special version of ML and will make the installer refuse to install. So avoid using that too.

8) Now go back to my zip archive's extracted folder. This time open the S/L/E folder. Copy ALL of the files inside into your USB sticks Extra/Extensions folder. If the Extensions folder doesn't exist inside your USB stick's Extra folder, create it and then copy these files inside it.

9) Lastly, you need a smbios.plist. Remember the one I had you download earlier from this post? Yeah, you need that now. Find it, and copy it into your USB stick's Extra folder too.

10) After everything is where it should be. You're done! The only thing left to do is setup your BIOS/UEFI so that it will run Chameleon. We'll do that next.

 

BIOS/UEFI Setup:

 

WARNING: Changing UEFI may result in a Windows boot failure. Backup anything you care about before attempting this. You have been warned. This is also how MINE works. Yours could be different.

 

1) The reason you've had issues running the installer is probably due to UEFI still being active. We need to fix that by switching to Legacy mode. Root Device issues are usually because of USB errors. Disabling USB3.0 might solve that.

2) Starting from the computer being shutdown, press the power button and then immediately press the F10 key afterwards. You might need to press F10 a few times to make sure it registers.

3) This will bring up the BIOS menu. You start under the Main tab, press the right key until you hit the System Configuration tab

4) Under this tab we need to change some things. Most of the settings are optional and won't really affect OS X but I suggestion changing two things now. Find and change Intel Smart Connect Technology to Disabled and then find USB3.0 Configuration in Pre-OS option and set that to Auto.

5) Now go to Boot Options and press enter. This will bring up more options. Quite simply, just change Legacy Support from Disabled to Enabled. You will probably get warnings but you can safely ignore these (assuming you took proper precautionary measures first) and continue. Everything else should be fine. Back out of this menu by pressing Esc.

6) Back at the System Configuration tab, press the right key once more to hit the Exit tab. Just select Exit Saving Changes and press Enter to get the Exit Saving Changes? question. Select Yes using the Enter key and you're all set.

7) You can now boot using your USB stick! Just remember at boot to press the F9 key. This will bring up the boot device menu, which you will need to be able to boot from your USB stick. You could also change your BIOS setups to allow booting from USB devices before the internal HDD but I never do. So that's all up to you. You may also receive a warning prompt after saving your BIOS settings asking for a confirmation code to be entered. This is fine, it is done to prevent any unauthorized changes to your BIOS.

 

Now, assuming you followed my guide, you should be able to boot to Chameleon and the OS X installer using nothing more than verbose boot (-v). If you still need a guide for the installation process of OS X, maybe you shouldn't continue because this is clearly way over your head. ;p

 

WARNING: Just as a general heads up, during my testing Chameleon would NOT properly install onto my internal Envy HDD! This results in boot failure, more specifically boot0 failure. I've tried to fix it a few times using varies methods but nothing worked. I currently boot into OS X using a USB Chameleon recovery disk. If you don't want to have to go through that, I suggest pulling out your internal HDD after OS X install and using a USB to SATA cable, manually installing Chameleon using another computer. I haven't tried that yet but it should work. If you're lucky, you won't have the same install issue that I have had. Chameleon typically installs onto the 1K bootsector of a HDD and I assume that my HDD has either a 2 or 4K bootsector and that's my guess for what's causing the issue. It's probably easily fixed using dd, i've just been lazy. ;p

 

After OS X is installed, you're gonna want to copy the entire Extra folder onto the OS X install disk. I again suggest using Terminal for this. This command will do it:

cd /
cp -Rp /Extra /Volumes/<YOURDISKNAMEHERE>

Of course, you'll want to replace <YOURDISKNAMEHERE> with whatever name you gave your OS X disk.

 

After OS X is all setup, you should consider adding the /Extra/Extensions kexts into your /System/Library/Extensions directory and updating the kernelcache for faster booting. Again, many guides exist for that.

 

*whew* That should about do it. As with anything of this length and detail, I may have made errors or omitted something that you might need, I find that rather doubtful though since I have done this so many times. Still, if you have further questions, please feel free to ask and if I can help, i'll address them as soon as I can.

 

Good luck. :)

have you tried this for the ethernet?

 

Also, I will try later to see if the bios has a whitelist or not for installing a different wlan card. I am on windows still on the 15-incher model of the 2013 envys but it should be able to tell if you are able to simply swap out the cards without modifying the bios

 

Also, have you tried the latest DP for mavericks? ive read that it has better support for haswell onboard graphics such as the hd4600

This guy somehow got the HD4600 working QE/CI as an iris pro under mavericks, I would read his blog

https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/
