I’ve been trying to turn my workstation into a hackintosh for years now but I have yet to succeed. I’ve made slow progress over the years and believe that it’s impractical for a reasonable percentage of the visitors to this forum to achieve a fully functional machine with OSX running on it let alone get their computers to boot up even.
But me being the open minded and pragmatist that I am. Here I am ready to try again. I’ve been reading about some kind of tribal voodoo shtick for a few years and it’s always pummeled my brain into a fine mush.
I’ve watched videos I’ve watched tutorials, I’ve done it all. Each source has their own story; this forum has no story at all about DSDTs until recently as far as I know.
So let’s get started, here are my specs and people on this forum have told me over and over again that my specs are perfect for a hackintosh.
Asrock x58 Supercomputer
Intel i7 920
4GB of RAM (expandable to 24GB of RAM)
750w power supply
3x3TB HDDs = 9TB
nVidia GTX 275
I need help making a DSDT file for my computer. And I'm assuming from all that I've learned that this will be all I need to turn my machine into a fully working hackintosh.
A short question before we start:
1. My motherboard has version 2.90 of the bios flashed. The most current version is 3.40. Do you recommend that I flash the most current version before I begin?
I got OSX 10.7 to install on my workstation last year and as far as I can remember, everything worked except sleep and Audio; I believe I even got my graphics to work, but I'm not sure.
I got the audio to work using a voodoo driver but that caused a new problem. The computer would only boot up 50% of the time. Sometimes it would take a second try to boot up again. And also caused kernel panics once in a while. Without the voodoo audio the computer would boot up 100% of the time and there were zero kernel panics. When I did use the audio there was a static sound, the audio was not clear. I believe my motherboard required ALC890 which I could not find. Someone recommended I extract and edit a DSDT file to sidestep this problem last year. But I could never figure it out.
I'm ready to upgrade to a Hackintosh! What do I need to do guys? What is the best tutorial! How do I get this done today? !!
