Guide: 10.8 on ASRock Z77E-ITX + HD 4000 graphics

18 August 2012 - 05:05 PM

My setup:

Antec ISK110-VESA case
8gb DDR3 2133
80gb Intel SSD
Dell DW1515 AR9280 Wlan Mini pci-e card

Steps to get Mtn Lion working:

1. set graphics memory to 64mb in bios (important!)

2. install 10.8 GM from usb

3. after install, boot from usb and select new system

4. install MBeast 4.6.1 with these options:

- Easy
- Nullcpupowermanagement
- Mac mini
- Chameleon theme

5. install Chameleon 1.11.0

6. reboot

HD4000 works perfectly on DVI (did not try VGA or HDMI)
no wifi, LAN, or audio

To get audio working:

1. create DSDT.aml with DSDT Editor and put it in /Extra

2. use MBeast 5.0 to install Realtek ALC898 (with DSDT)

3. reboot

4. go to audio control panel, and select internal speakers. also turn on volume control.

To get WIFI working:

1. buy Dell DW1515 mini-pcie adapter (got one for $6 on Ebay) and swap it with stock card

2. in terminal:

sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Info.plist

3. delete these lines and save it:


4. reboot

5. open network prefs

6. if you don't see a wifi connection, then hit + and add one, then apply
