  1. I did nothing but the described steps. I used the AsusNBWMI.kext, and the DSDT from Thomas2111 (both attached) to get Fn keys working, audio also worked immediately after installing the kexts. Maybe some DSDT tweaks for the UX32A? So you partitioned your disk with GPT before (probably due to your ubuntu system), then did the windows install? I see, I'll try that..
  2. Yes, thats right. Clover is not being installed to your EFI Partition but to the Partition which runs your OS X System. When you copy your EFI Folder to the EFI Partition I meant to say that, when you try different Boot options (see Point "Add New Boot option") you have to make sure that you pick the only working option by deleting the "old" EFI Folder on your System Partition. Glad I could help you. How did you boot your Windows install stick? Straight from Bios or via Clover? I had no luck booting any Windows install stick via Clover, but I'm pretty sure that in order to install Windows on a GPT Disk you have to boot it in UEFI mode..
  3. Ok I completely redid it, documenting. This is exactly how i proceeded: (mostly based on pippo's howto, UX32VD-R4002H) Copy all attached files on your unib3ast stick, so you can access them while in safe mode. - With stick, boot OS X 10.8.2 install, with -x flag. - Disk utility - Partition your system disk (as many partitions as you wish) with the GUID Table (Mac Part. with Mac OSX Ext Journaled of course) - Boot Mac OS X with -x flag - Go to /System/Library/Extensions and delete ONLY Geforce.kext, install attached kexts (by nhart12 and Thomas 21111) with kext wizard, rebuild kext cache - Install clover v2 r1000 - customize: UEFI boot (UEFI motherboards), Install & start 64bit boot first, Drivers32, Drivers 64, Drivers64UEFI - Run Diskutil list (look for the identifier for your 209.7 MB EFI Partition on the Disk where OS X is installed, in my case disk0s1) - sudo newfs_msdos -v Fat32 -F 32 /dev/disk0s1 (to repartition the EFI partition) - Reboot. Boot OS X in single user mode (-s) - When files are loaded and you see :/ root# , type sudo nvram -x -p > /nvram.plist returns: -sh: /nvram.plist: Read-only file system - Type reboot - Boot OS X (no flags this time) - Recheck correct EFI identifier: diskutil list (for me disk order changed after reformat) - Mount your EFI partition: sudo mkdir -p /mnt sudo mount_msdos /dev/disk1s1 /mnt (again, check for your own identifier!) - FAT32 should be mounted in finder now. copy the EFI Folder from your system disk (or the disk you chose at clover install) to FAT32 (drag on the finder mount or via terminal, backup replaced files if neccesary) - Go to the EFI Folder on your FAT32 Mount. Replace Folders ACPI/mini, ACPI/patched, drivers64UEFI and OEM with the folders from my EFI. Replace also config.plist from my EFI. - When finished, unmount FAT32 (Your EFI Partition) with sudo umount /mnt - Delete EFI folder from your system partition (or where clover was installed to) to be sure to boot the right partition with EFI folder - Reboot, go to BIOS, Add New Boot Option: Name: CLOVER (or whatever) Filesystem: Choose the EFI Partition of your system Disk (if you're not sure which filesystem to pick, create multiple Boot Options with same parameters but try different filesystems) Path: \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi , Save, Reboot - Hit Esc at Asus logo, choose Bootoption to boot. (in my case first filesystem in list was the right one) - in Clover, hit "Boot Mac OS X from …" Audio, Fn Keys, Standby, Lan Adapter, Battery Meter work, didn't test video out yet. Files: UX32VD_1.zip, UX32VD_2.zip I can't guarantee that it works for the UX32A too, give it a try! The Error occurs, amongst other things, when you delete the requiered AppleACPIPlatform.kext. Always keep a backup of deleted kexts Anyone luck with Multitouch yet?? (with Elan v4 beta drivers) UX32VD_1.zip UX32VD_2.zip
  4. Ok got Clover working, boots OS X in seconds, very nice (I will post some tips for those who still struggle later) Anyone able to boot a Windows (7) install stick from Clover? It just gives me a black screen which returns to the Clover menu after key input... (need to install windows from UEFI to install it on GPT)
  5. Thank you for your answer. As i also assumed, it had nothing to do with bluetooth (as far as I got). Deleting the Geforce.kext AND AppleACPIPlatform.kext + doing a manual cache rebuild with kext wizard (or terminal) instead of just recaching with -f did it for me (booting without -x). I had this issue as well, always black screens... Try using the provided EFI Folder by SeppDepp above Then in the BIOS Entry use "\" and not "/" like someone else said. So "\EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi" (On the UX32VD the \ in BIOS is on the > key) I managed to get Clover running (internally) but it's not starting OSX unfortunately. It shows me the apple logo and some text layed over: "panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff8000659e01): "unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-2050.18.24/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1548 Debugger called: <panic> Backtrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Adress" ....some hex values... Any Ideas anyone? Thanks
  6. Hey guys, thanks for the great how-tos! unfortunately i'm not able to run anything (osx install or installed osx) without the -x flag. the grey wheel under the apple logo stops spinning and the colored waiting cursor appears, spinning into infinity... booting the install, verbose hangs at "[iOBluetoothHCIController][start] -- completed" when the cursor appears. After installing with -x and deleting the Geforce.kext verbose gives me 3 more lines: "**** [AppleBluetoothHCIControllerUSBTransport][configurePM] -- ERROR -- waited 30 seconds and still did not get the commandWakeup() notification -- this = 0xffffff800a14cc00 **** [iOBluetoothHCIController::setConfigState] calling registerService" - and freezes. It seems like it's waiting for the bluetooth controller to respond, which fails I'm pretty sure by now this is a problem with graphics, because graphics initialization comes right after bluetooth, which is completed. GraphicsEnabler=No didn't take any effect, hangs at the same as above. Any Ideas to a possible solution would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks in advance (Mac OS X 10.8.2 Appstore, GUID table partitioned. No changes that are not in pippo's how to, 32VD with BIOS 213)
