I am having no luck with ASRock H87M PRO4 + i5-4670K and fresh ML 10.8.5 retail-install. Computer reboots right after I am done reading kexts... Tried 10.8.4 with patched kernel with the same result... Tried to feed pretty much any keys to boot loader... Something is telling me that I don't have BIOS setup properly because same drives (10.8.4 patched and 10.8.5) boot in my LGA775 box.

 

Any ideas/hints/success stories?

 

Thanks

I managed to boot 10.8.4 patched with ##### last night. I cannot get ALC 892 to work and for some reason I cannot use my GT 220 PCIe video card and for some strange reason I could only boot with -v -f together with ncpi=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 dart=0 in Boot.plist.
 
I did pretty much retail install (using mac to build a drive) + ##### + svn chameleon (2265 I believe) + ##### after #####. Apparently it is all about kernel and
deleting GenericUSBXHCI.kext from /System/Library/Extensions and thus last step is the key.
Now, once I got 10.8.4 to boot I tried the same kernel on 10.8.5, but I am getting exception in AppleTyMCEDriver.kext (that looks the same between 10.8.4 and 10.8.5) so it gotta be something in IOPCIFamily, so I rolled them back to 10.8.1 with #####, but was getting same "couldn't find symbol _acpi_idle_kernel". 
 
 
I would try to use IOPCIFamily from 10.8.4 to at least may be get on chip GPU accelerated with 10.8.5, but I really need my Nvidia PCIe working and I don't understand why it is not working for me - video card was working fine with retail installs in other boards and with ASROCK I go into [PCI Configuration] and then screen either goes black or it just hangs there and GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No don't seem to have any effect. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?
 
There is no way to disable on chip GPU in ASROCK BIOS (BIOS only allows to enable PCIe GPU) and I suspect that this might be the reason.
 
Regarding ALC892... Judging by reports for ASROCK 77 boards to get AppleHDA working would most likely require DSDT... I never learned how to patch DSDT myself, so any help would be appreciated... Otherwise, did anybody try Voodoo yet?
