    oh and Karate.

The problem (old message):
I need help with my pc, after a week I'm enjoying a Mountain Lion 10.8.5 on my old AMD pc with a AMD Kernel.

4 days ago i'm buyed a Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 rev 3.0 and a Intel Core i5 3330, I builded my new pc including the Ati HD6670 graphics card.


All ok but when I boot my Mountain Lion from my old AMD pc with mach_kernel don't boot.
no kernel panics, only never boot, can stay days and continue booting...


well since I builded this new pc I'm searching a solution and only can boot the system in safe mode.

I used  myHack, the guide, niresh, and other methods and no...
I buyed a Gigabyte UEFI motherboard for most compatible system and only can boot in safe mode :(


I'm not are a novice of OSX86, but no a super master.


When I boot in normal mode I get a white screen with the busy cursor forever...


Thanks a lot.

 

The solution:

 

Configure the BIOS in this form:

 

1) Load Optimized Defaults and Reboot.

 

In BIOS Features:

 

1) VT-D = Disabled

 

Enable if you have a Intel Core Ivy bridge "K" model:

 

Example:

 

i5 3330 = Disabled

 

i5 3330K = Enabled

 

In Peripheals:

 

1) Change IDE to AHCI

2) EHCI Hand-off = Enabled

3) Init Display First = PEG

 

Reboot...

 

Install using your favorite method!

 

REMEMBER: if you use a ATI 6xxx graphics card (I'm use a Ati HD6670), delete the ATI6000Controller.kext from S/L/E in your Install USB, and boot using " -f GraphicsEnabler=No " without quotes.

 

When your installation ends install it with Kext Utility or Kext Wizard.

Yes, I removed the ATI6000Controller.kext and started with the -f GraphicsEnabler=no, but still on the busy cursor.
FINALLY! I solved the problem, only changing some BIOS settings.
 
now I post the solution for future users, first I need to finish my OSX86 config!
