Hi,

I cannot update from 10.7. to 10.7.1 or 10.7.2.

It fails with the error "Mac OS X Update can't be installed on this disk.
The volume does not meet the requirements for this update".
The disk is GUI.


Software update does not list any update for download and shows the system is uptodate.


Any hint?

thanks,

Pippo pippo

From the PM you send me I understand you have installed the Developer Preview, if this is true you can't update from there, you need to install the GM.

Hi All, I hope to revive this thread to talk about installing ##### with the pk5vm. The install of Lion goes smoothly but when I try to use ##### (which is what I used previously) it panics. Anyone got an idea on how to solve this?

Should I go down the custom DSDT route?

Q6600 and PK5-VM with 4gb memory.

This mobo works 100% with the DSDT, why you want to complicate things? :)

I may be a little late to the game here, but I've spent about an hour on this thread and there is a lot of information and disinformation. How come there are so many hoops to jump through if the mobo is identical??

I can get as far as Lion installed using #####, from what I understand is at this stage you need all the proper drivers, which I think I have. Could someone PLEASE forward me a link to a working Q6600 P5K-VM DSDT without a graphics card? After that I can install my 7600GT drivers and hopefully should be able to get everything working. I understand that English might not be your first language, but this is complicated and risky stuff!! :)

There is a guide posted at: http://www.insanelym...p...t&p=1706120
The only problem you have is the video card, the 7000 series don't work fully since snow leopard, the DSDT posted
at the link works 100%,you only need to replace the CPU section with the one you have, you can search the forum for it, or you can do it yourself, there are several guides teaching you how to do it; again read carefully the guide posted in the link and follow it, if other people had success you could have to. Good luck. :)

Hello,

First, sorry for my poor english, i'm french guy.
Thanks to elvieja to bulding the Lion Tuto !
But I encountred some problem...

1 - When i type:

cd ~/path to your Asus P5K-VM Audio kext and Extra Folder/Extra/DSDT

I don't have this folder. I have well dsdt.aml unzipped from the P5KVM extra zip file...but no folder.
and
When i type:

./update.sh

I have: Unable to find update.sh

Same problem for the next line where i need to type ./update.sh

2 - Audio is working, but output is different in windows ! In OSX = Black port, in Windows = Green port. It's possible to remapp port ? maybe with other kexts?

Can you help me ?
Thanks,
regards,
Cber

Shutdown in verbose mode ( -v ) to see what's preventing the computer to shutdown, take a pic and post it, so we can determine the cause. :wink2:

I have installed ML DP4 using MyHack 3.1. The installation worked like a charm. Postinstallation almost perfect, not need any extra kext for the graphic card (GeForce 9500 GT family), had maximum resolution and graphic acceleration, even during the installation. The system is fast and works like a charm, so this motherboard has very good potential yet.

I have no sound (even installing the patched AppleHDA doesn't work) and I have no network connectivity (LegacyYukon2.kext from Lion doesn't work). The dsdt file seems to not count (having it in the /Extra causes kernel panic at restart/shutdown). I have installed only these extensions in the /Extra/Extension directory:


AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext
ApplePS2Controller.kext
FakeSMC.kext
Ispcdriv.kext
NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
Patched_10.7_AppleRTC.kext

Is anyone that got more success with this excellent motherboard?

I finally did it. All working now. I added these:
For internal sata drive icons: IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext in E/E
For audio get ALC883 (Mountain Lion) in osx86.net and follow instructions
For network: Search Marvell Yukon 88E8056 in osx86.net and get the modded IONetworkingfamily.kext and install it in S/L/E

Unfortunatelly, the dsdt is mandatory, without it you get orange drive icons and no network, even the proper kexts are properly installed;
Keep the modded AppleHDA.kext and IONetworkingfamily.kext for reinstalling them after every update!

Mountain Lion is faster than Lion on my configuration, so this motherboard is still very good. Don't put it on ignore!

Im waiting for the official 10.8 release next month. Then I'll upgrade and post my impressions here.
Never upgraded to Lion (I even downgraded my MBP 2011 to snow leopard!)

Indeed this is still a good board. Its amazing how OSX makes old hardware to feel like bleeding edge

I've just updated from 10.7.2 to 10.7.4, but I can't load OSX. I get as far as the following when I boot in verbose:


com.apple.launchd 1 com.apple.launchctl.System 2 The system bootstrapper has crashed: Trace/BPT trap: 5
AppleYukon2: Marvell Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8056 Singleport Copper SA
AppleYukon2: RxRingSize <= 1024, TxRingSize 256, RX_MAX_LE 1024, TX_MAX_LE 768, ST_MAX_LE 3328


Anyone got any idea how to fix?

Guys, I have vanilla Mountain Lion GM running on the p5kvm really fine.

You need to follow this guide:
http://www.insanelym...howtopic=280756

Im attaching my files here. Remember to use your own DSDT file. Mine is customized for the q8200 and 4MB ram.

This should give you audio (3 out, 1 in, digital out), ethernet, sleep, speedstep, rtc (no cmos reset). Im using a Nvidia 9500GT graphic card which works with chameleon's graphic enabler.

The audio needs a bit more work. It gives some assertion errors at boot.

Thank you BlackCH. I want to mention, all kexts would be installed in /Extra/Extensions, except AppleHDA, which will be installed in /System/Library/Extensions. I was replacing my all /Extra kexts with yours and the system works even better. I have my own dsdt and I kept the patched AppleHDA for ALC883, found in osx6.net. I have a 2+1speaker system to each of my hackintoshes.

Thanks, BlackCH, works like a charm with the 10.8 Gold Master.
