In Topic: Guide for Acer Aspire 3830T-6417

29 October 2011 - 10:00 AM

Hello
I have Acer 4830t with probably the same spec like 3830t and I am running osx Lion 10.7.2 with working wifi.
I am missing working brightness control the most.
Also not working bluetooth,sleep,usb 3.0 and ethernet(not so important for me).
At the end very nicely working hackintosh laptop.


Yes but which wifi card do u have?

To install SL i also used USB but not the exact same way coz my external DVD rom didnt read my retail SL dvd and i didnt have a mac or access to a hackintosh so what i did is a long process but it works. In a windows machine i extracted (ripped) the install dvd using clone cd and saved it as OSX.iso.
Then with transmac i formatted a 16gig USB thumb drive with this iso image. now i have SL on the USB.
Then i connected the usb to the laptop and booted with ##### cd( using external dvd) , ##### showed the usb as MAC oS install dvd and from there i continued....

for me i connected DVD rom to USB3 and mouse on other USB and USB thumb drive in the third usb port.

Working ......

well i finally got it to work , tested on SL and Lion , heres what i did:
To begin with i used the 0.64.5 version coz the latest version .64.6 caused KP as mentioned by other users..
the NIC uses by default nvenet.kext which is found in S/L/E in IONetworking kext...so all i did is open that IONetworking kext and removed nvenet.kext from it (removing the entire IONetworking caused freezes during booting) . then i ran the installer and installed nforce kext the i just ran system utilties in ##### so that i rebuild caches etc etc.
Rebooted and it was working!

Hope this helps.

this guide is so useful it should be a sticky

thank you.

i have things to add,,,many of the laptops use hard drives that do not allow either chameleon or chimera to boot (4k or something weird like that) so the best way is to take the hdd out of the laptop and connect it as a usb hdd.
Now one more thing..kyle boot file is used to replace the original boot file that the bootloader installs(chameleon/chimera) so the kyle'c boot file has to be renamed to boot and the .txt must also be removed, thats done in mac os by right clicking on the file then show info then name and file extension, change name and check the hide extension box and save.
terminal command for remove ir rm filename and to copy is cp filename (for details google how to install chameleon manually)

one more thing,,,i have succeeded in installing Lion and boots well with chimera1.5.. but the only reason for me to go back to Snow Leopard is the fact that wireless didnt work on Lion for some reason? maybe u have an idea?)

Sleep etc is no go still,,although im new to this and need to do more research.

Thanks once more for the guide.
