  1. Excellent idea, but tried it already and didn't work unless MacBook Air 4,1 is still not compatible. Suggestions?
  2. Hi all, Quick (possibly silly) question: I have a wonderful Hackintosh (MSIWind) that is functioning flawlessly on SnowLeopard 10.6.8 but feel that it's time to invest in a new system (to work with newest dev SDK mostly) and would like to download Mountain Lion to create the install USB to begin my new build adventures. Unfortunately, my Wind does not meet the PROC requirements that the App Store looks for prior to download so it wont let me download the .dmg file. Is there a mod that will allow me to pretend my Wind has PROC of sufficient capability in order to pull the download from the App Store. I'd rather not have to schlep around looking for a friend/acquaintance/total stranger with a Mac capable of completing the download. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
  3. Vanilla Install on MSI Wind

    This may be slightly offtopic, but with the other "Vanilla" package, there was the VoodooPS2controller kext (which is how I was able to get my doubletap touchpad working). Has anybody noticed that the keybinding for the 'tilde' is incorrect. It gives the § and ± for normal and SHIFT respectively. Any idea on how to correct it for a US keyboard?
  4. Vanilla Install on MSI Wind

    Hmmm... I guess I should have phrased it a bit differently then! What I meant is that on this board, the installation tutorial shown by Dalton is the best at installing OSX on the Wind Netbook. I didn't mean to say that the METHOD was HIS, just this version of it was the best for the Wind in particular. (IMO). Mad props to those who developed and further refined EFI booting for the rest of us weasels to use and adapt for our own. /end disclaimer
  5. Vanilla Install on MSI Wind

    Hey Dalton, nice to see you've moved over here! You have any idea what happened to our forum? It's been down for about a week now. ** Dalton's Tutorial is the DEFINITIVE tutorial for installing OSX on a Wind Netbook ** Gazoo
  6. After migrating to 10.5.8, I received kernel panics in my Pavilion dv9700 at AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement with the alert "No HPETs available ... CPU(s) configured incorrectly". I had been using the Munky EFI method at http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...c=127330 which up until then was working FLAWLESSLY. After a lot of trial and error, I noticed that when I used a more current Darwin bootloader from cd-rom with the cpus=2 command, it booted into the OS. But trying cpus=2 with the munky EFI did not. I figured that it was because the munky darwin bootloader didn't support the command. I decided to eraseVolume the EFI partition and install Chameleon 2 there (assuming that it would support the cpus=2 command). I set the GUI=n to get the prompt. But when I ran it, and entered cpus=2 it wouldn't load the OS. Running it in verbose mode doesn't show a panic, but rather it seems to freeze after attemping some network negotiation. Does someone have experience with loading Chameleon into the EFI partition and knows what I'm doing wrong? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. UPDATE: It appears that it's something in the way I configured my 'Munky' bootloader. I tried running 'cpus=2' from my installed bootloader 'the old EFI munky method' and it didn't work, BUT when I used the bootloader disk, it does. However, I lost my keyboard/trackpad function again. Can I update my bootloader to Cameleon 2 without having to re-install the OS? I can't remember the kext's i need to recover my keyboard/trackpad, was it AppleAPIC and ApplePS2Controller or one or the other or different ones? I have a DV9700 Pavilion. If anybody bothers to help out, I would be very greatful.
  8. I posted this over at another site, but thought I should post over here in the off chance that someone over here might help. Upgraded from 10.5.7 to 10.5.8. OS was legit store copy of X but used Munkey's old EFI method to boot. -v gives panic in appleintelcpupowermanagement.kext. I had no problem upgrading from 10.5.6 to 10.5.7 using Updater, so I thought this shouldn't be a problem. Here is the the -v readout: Skiping duplicate extension "com.apple.driver.AppleAPIC" with older /same version (1.1.0 -> 1.1.0).

I extracted the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from the store bought CD and tried using it, but got a 'kernal mismatch' panic.

    WARNING: These kext's do NOT work! Followed instructions to the letter and got panic on AppleIntelCpuPowermanagment kext "incorrect core value" Went in terminal to copy back backup kexts to original locations. Corrected chown and chmod and rebooted. No luck. continues to panic. Tried -f and -x at Darwin no luck. these are poorly written kexts and avoid them if trying to repair your shutdown issue. will now have to reinstall.
