Hello everybody,

my specs are:

Asus P5K-VM
Intel Q6600
2x2 GB OCZ PC2-5300)
GeForce 8800 GTS 512 MB

I've installed Mountain Lion with my one DSDT (I created on xubuntu live cd with sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT > DSDT.aml).
I modified my DSDT with DSDTSE Editor like this Tutorial and used the Patches from http://olarila.com/forum/packs.php you can find attached. You can also find my patched DSDT.

I followed this Tutorial to install Mountain Lion and my DSDT file.
After that I've installed BlackCH's kexts from post #1196. I used the kext wizard 3.7.10 to install them.

The following problems exists:
  • Audio doesn't work
  • Sleep Mode doesn't work (hard drive shuts down but fans continue to run and I can't wake up the system)
  • Wake On LAN doesn't work
Is there any tutorial for the P5K-VM Board to get run Mountain Lion step by step?

Hope you can help me. If any information is missing please tell me.

The problem for me is to find the correct files for patching DSDT and find the correct kext files for Audio, Sleep Mode and Wake ON LAN.

Thanks a lot.

Attached Files

Has anyone tried using Clover with this board? I am not able to use iMessages due to well documented problems. But when I try to use the latest Chameleon version that addresses that issue, booting stalls without DSMOS arriving, shortly after sound assertion errors which I believe are normal. Old Chameleon from August 2012 boots fine. So I figured I'd give Clover a try, but I have not been able to successfully boot. I believe you need a 'proper' config.plist for that. Has anyone created that? Thanks...

Make sure you have fakesmc.kext in /System/Library/Extensions, it will not work from /Extra/Extensions.

Try booting with UseKernelCache=n

About Messages:

You must install the NVRAM module in /Extra/Modules for Messages to work with Chameleon

Chameleon must be at least v2.2 svn r2170

You must delete the ACPICodec module from the modules folder, it cannot coexist with the NVRAM module (I wish I could remember where I read this)

An /Extra/smbios.plist with correct data (ie an accurately faked serial number for example) for the Mac model you're spoofing is required

A wired ethernet device at En0 with the built-in property set (EthernetBuiltIn=y) is required. A driver must be loaded for the hardware but you don't have to be actually using it.

Your Hackintosh must have a valid Hardware UUID (See System Profiler) - this is normally taken care of automatically by Chameleon

If Chameleon is installed to your EFI partition you must create an additional Extra folder at the root of your system drive so that the contents of NVRAM can be saved there - NVRAM contents cannot be written to the Extra folder on your EFI partition because it isn't mounted when the system is running.

If it still doesn't work with all the above in order, try logging in to Messages with your Apple ID on any real Apple device once, then try again on your Hackintosh.

For more information see this post:
http://www.insanelym...00#entry1883003
You shouldn't have to mess with NVRAM variables though, it should just work. Well it does for me anyway.

To upgrade Chameleon, you can use my guide and files from here (must be logged in to download).

Thanks Gringo Vermelho;

Your instructions enabled booting with the most recent version of Chameleon (2181). All I had to do is install the fakesmc.kext as you indicated, and update Chameleon. Works fine. I also added the NVRAM module using the Chameleon installer, but could not get the iMessage to work.

I do have a functioning ethernet, smbios is correct, UUID is correct, NVRAM is created in /Extra, tried logging out and back in on a real mac (worked fine) but can not log in to iMessages on the hack. I am now going through the two posts you indicated, any other ideas. Many thanks...

Thank you so much. What made it work is to log in to App Store with the account used in iMessages, add a credit card, and it started working. For others, here is the summary of what I did, based on your instructions:

- install Chameleon 2171 using installer, and with the option to install the NVRAM module.
- upgrade to 2181 using Chameleon Wizard (just the /boot part)
- copied FakeSMC to /System/Library/Extensions/ (otherwise does not boot)
- repaired permissions for good measure
- reboot
- add credit card in App Store to the Apple ID used for iMessage
- login to iMessage

Thanks once again. Much appreciated...

I installed Mavericks GM on this board, using Myhack. I applied the old dsdt which worked in ML and the AppleHDA from ML. Everything works good, I got sound, but I can't get network yet. I will keep you updated.

I am currently running 10.7.2 on my ASUS-P5KVM and everything is working.

These are my specs:

 

ASUS P5KVM

Q6600 @ 2,4 GHZ

6 GB DDR2 ram

GT 240 512mb

 

I used iAtkos L2 and used the default settings @ costumization, there is 1 thing i selected wich is the Marvell 88E8056 at Drivers > Network.

When i rebooted only sound where not working and i used a basic kext which was for AppleHDA.kext and now that i working to.

Network and display where working out of the box, display with GraphicsEnabler=Yes but that was selected by iAtkos.

Also i didnt use chameleon but i used chimera.

 

Also remember to set ur HHD's to AHCI and dont use port 3&4 because they are not working with mac osx

 

When i get home today i will add the audio kext.

 

Greetings,

Luukwa.

After a long while of trying, I finally got OS X 10.9 GM fully working on Asus P5K-VM:

What you need: 

- OS X 10.9 installer

- Myhack beta for 10.9 http://www.insanelym...installer-beta/

- Pandora http://www.insanelym.../11-pandoraapp/

- Kext Wizard  http://www.insanelym...aller-and-more/

- Chameleon Wizard:  http://www.osx86.net...eon-wizard-422/

- ALC883 Sound: http://www.insanelym...nd-with-alc883/

- Network Marvell Yukon 88e8056: http://www.insanelym...e8056-108-1085/

 

1. Installation using MyHack. Attention, when you boot the USB installer created with Myhack, don't forget to use the argument "-f" or the installer will get stuck. Follow the direction of the installer (Default extra, remove proposed kexts). At the restart the computer may stall, use the reset button.

2. After the restart you may get a bios alert about the CMOS reset, don't worry it will be fixed, set the correct date and time in bios set the sata back to AHCI, and boot the system. Open Pandora, chose post install and then chose remove orange drives and CMOS reset.

3. Open Kext Wizard and install AppleHDA patched for ALC883 and IONetworkingFamily in /System/Library/Extensions (then put the kexts in a safe place)

4. Open Chameleon Wizard and set what you want, but "Restart Fix" and "Ethernet Built In" would be mandatory. You don't have functional network yet, Chameleon Wizard will ask you for Java, ignore the dialogs, it either works.

5. If you have other video card than me (nVidia Geforce 9500 GT or GS) you need to find the proper kexts, I don't need any other kexts for this card.

7. FakeSMC would be placed in /System/Library/Extensions instead of /Extra/Extensions. Use kext wizard and move it.

6. Cross the fingers and reboot. GOOD LUCK!

 

PS IMPORTANT! Place all kexts and applications in a safe place, you will need the kexts back after every OS update. Copy the AppleRTC.kext from /System/Library/Extensions in the safe place too, you will need it after every OS update, or use Pandora to put it back.

dsdt.aml is not needed or not mandatory.

Xanthrax your guide works! Thanks.

 

I have now 10.9 up and working, except for Usb 3/4 port with mouse/keyboard not working, but usb storage working (they were ok on Montain Lion).

 

In Your guide, at point 2):

 

2. After the restart you may get a bios alert about the CMOS reset, don't worry it will be fixed, set the correct date and time in bios set the sata back to AHCI, and boot the system. Open Pandora, chose post install and then chose remove orange drives and CMOS reset.

 

I cannot find in Pandora any way to remove orange drives and CMOS reset.

 

help please
