Title: Samsung RV511 Laptop, hackintosh - No progress; Can't install
FIRST OFF: Sorry for posting about tools from TonyMac but I felt the need to give the run down of everything I've tried - to show that I've simply tried everything I know how to. If you feel the need for me to edit this post, fine. Just please don't ban me because I'm simply frustrated at this point.
I have bought and paid for Mountain Lion from the App Store already.
I was trying to avoid buying Snow Leopard too, but went ahead and ordered
the disk from Apple. Should be here next week sometime.
At this point, I don't really care which version of OSX I'm running - I'm just tired
of Windows, bloatware, etc. I have OSX running in VMWare and absolutely LOVE it.
I understand some of the hardware might not work right away but am willing to put
in the time to make it work.
Another post I created at hackint0sh.org over a week ago and not one person responded:
I'm not the one to usually ask for help. I like to try and figure things out on my own, but I just can't figure it out.
Let me give you a run down of what I have tried.
Most of TonyMac's products (#####, #####, #####, etc)
At this point in time I didn't know what TonyMac was all about. Ha
Tried myHack with no success.
I have tried the ModCD and other directions from:
I have also tried various other tools and guides like: http://liondiskmaker.com/

Prerequisites: I have already purchased Mountain Lion OS from the Apple Store.
Anytime I mention torrent, I don't care what you have to say.
nay to you sayers; I PURCHASED A LEGIT COPY OF MTN LION
My first idea ALMOST had me going. I used VirtualBox with a Snow Leopard .iso by Hazard I torrented with the name:
I upgraded to 10.6.8 and forgot to run #####. This created a SleepEnabler.kext kernel panic, so I deleted the kexts using terminal (disc boot) and was back in business. I now had Snow Leopard version 10.6.8 and was attempting to create a Mountain Lion USB stick using multiple guides. This uses the disk utility and #####. I would ocassionally get kernel panics when formatting the drive and ALWAYS get kernel panics when ##### was finishing up. I attempted myHack as well but no go. The kernel panic always led back to: IOUSBMassStorageClass kext.
At this time I abandoned ship and tried multiple variations with .dmg and .iso files with dual layer DVDs and even USB boots and nothing worked.
My last solution was to get something going in VMWare in hopes that would be more stable. I came across a pre-built VMWare solution called: OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Retail VMware Image
This image is already ready to go with the exception of having to install it. I now had Mountain Lion working PERFECTLY in VMWare.
I was able to format the USB drive and use the ##### application successfuly. Created the drive, shutdown PC, then I booted into the bios, set the AHCI to manual, then enabled. Also turned UEFI to enabled (there was no setting called optimized defaults).
First attempt at booting gave me a nice pretty Apple Logo. I let it sit there for about 2 minutes before deciding to hit the power button. I wanted to boot using -v to see what she was doing. At this time, the USB drive would NO LONGER BOOT. So I popped in my ##### 3.3.0 disc and was able to try to boot from USB. I then typed -v when trying to boot and lots of kexts were loading. I seen an Apple screen then BAM, restart back to the bios. There are no errors, no kernel panics, I have tried using all of the available flags, -x -s -v GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0
all with no avail.
I also tried burning the VirtualBox iso to disc that has a darwin bootloader. After the apple logo, it does the same as above mentioned.
From one of the guides here at insnanelymac I burned "OSX86 ModCD" to DVD and created a "restored Mountain Lion USB Install drive".
I get to the apple logo, then instant restart. The text moves so fast when using -v flag so I have no idea what's going on or what the last message on screen is.
Could it be my graphics card causing problems? Just guessing at this point.
What is my next step?
What kernel should I be trying? Vanilla, etc? DSDT?
I have no idea where to start if I were to try to do this by hand.
A point in the right direction would be helpful.
I've been constantly reading for about 2 weeks now and just get more confused every time.
