    Awesome timezone is also fixed now. a little side-note, i had to install old bootcamp drivers v4 (v5 won't install) but did the job just fine. also.. previously i had MacDrive instllaed on my windows-partition for accessing OSX-partitions. after reboot macdrive was conflicting with bootcamp drivers, so i removed macdrive rebooted into windows again. all of my partitions are accessible including the osx-partitions under windows. now that's kick-ass! thanx again

    i guess i renamed it using osx it won't let me alter it so i had to copy it, edit that copy and overwrite the original. anyway. i also deleted AppleACPIPS2nub.kext and the contents of S/L/Caches rebooted -> bang! kernel panic rebooted again with -f -> boots ok should i make -f option permanent? with chameleon wizard?

    asusg73 i booted ignoring caches -f and also -v to see whats going on. it took a little longer to boot. it got a little further but suddenly i got a black screen and got stuck. do you want me to send a console-log?

    thanx asusg73 i had another go. i did what you said. updated to 10.8.5 via store. update went ok. after the update i lost wifi, sound and battery-info i was able to restore audio with ALC269 (like you said) i was able to restore wifi with your kext. then i disabled kernal cache (by using chameleon wizzard) after that i installed iReddyBattery.. reboot -> still got a KP any idea how to restore this? (restoring a previous image 10.8.3 does take 2,5 hours with paragon-software)

    i also would appriciate a set of 10.8.5 kexts that will work on my G73SW. i updated to 10.8.4 via combo update once, but after updating, i lost * Battery-info (it shows 0% at all times) * Wifi doesn't work anymore * ALC888 doesn't work anymore so i restored a backup and went back to 10.8.3 and everything is just fine again (except for backlit keyboard and sd-cardreader) thanx!

    G73SW ML 10.8.2 Install

    i've had some trouble with kextwizard, the first time i used it.. it did it's job fine, but after a reboot i didn't get to choose a destination drive (only 'option 1' and 'option 2' ) so i used another tool something like Kext-helper. i rebooted with option -v verbose mode. there was some powermanagement kext what caused the kernalpanic. i didn't have the patience to post the error on this board and wait for a solution and tried another install. i had another go with the 'my hack' install http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/ and i found out that i could inject a custom 'extra' folder at the end of the install. so i put all of jeff's files from 10 dec (all the kext and latest dsdt.aml etc) into that folder and finished the install. i booted once more via the myhack usbstick, choose my osx partition to boot. once booted, i ran the myhack utility to install the included bootloader. now it (multi)boots all by it's self what's working: * Nvidia GTX460m with OpenCL/CUDA * Audio * Battery icon in taskbar * USB 3.0 (i had to shutdown and pull the powercord once to get this working) * Wifi * Ethernet * volume keys (fn + vol-up and vol-down) * HMDI out (dual screen) * Bluetooth What's not working: * Sleep (when i try to put it to sleep the screen goes blank and never wakes up again) * Backlit keyboard * SD cardreader i have to tell, i bought my G73SW 2 years ago and installed osx 10.6 on it, but i never got this far almost everything works thanks to you guys! but still i would like to troubleshoot sleep and backlit-keyboard, i'm gonna research further tonite

    Jeff, in your very first post in this toppic you state 'Choose your install methods. There's plenty out on this site.' there is indeed. i used this one from olarila : OS_X_10.8.3_Mountain_Lion_bootable_USB_for_Intel_PCs after registering the kexts from your 10dec.zip with kext wizzard it gives kernal panic I think it does matter what install you use?

    G73SW ML 10.8.2 Install

    First of all, thank you so much fo putting this much effort in trying to get everyhardwarepart working in our G73SW laps. i've had several installs like 10.8.2 (Myhack) and iAtkos 10.8.2 ML2 the first one installs fine, but after reboot there is no audio and no hmdi output the seccond one (iAtkos) sometimes KP at booting the dvd.. if it doesn't happen to KP.. the install finnishes, but after reboot wifi+audio is working but i have to boot from cd because the installed bootloader gives an error boot0: test boot0: error. i have read every single post in this toppic, but to be honnest i completely lost track. what dsdt, ssdt, several kexkts should i use? what is the best way to start from scratch? (step by step-guide) any help would be appriciated. thanx in advance!
