    Mountain Lion - DP4 - Install Notes

    'give it a few compliments' LOL I laughed so hard, cola came out of my nose.

    Mountain Lion - DP4 - Install Notes

    The creation of installation media was done with myHack and boot up is fine with no problems but when the language selection screen appears and I press Next I'm given a pop up box with a warning message "mac osx mountain lion cannot be installed on this pc". How is the installer deciding this? What's it based on? My pc is sandy bridge i7 processor and the mobo is a Zotac H67 with 2 Gb memory. The built in video is Intel 3000 HD and I have an extra ATI 5450 video card. Is this pc able to install ML and if not, what part of it stops me? The northbridge or CPU?
  3. Please find attached my DSDT which I feel is a little clunky and could do with a spot of fine tuning. I have a Zotac H67 motherboard which has inbuilt Intel HD3000 and a separate ATI (Sapphire) 5450 - so far, without tweaking anything like frame buffers for the ATI or AppleHDA I appear to have JUST the audio enabled on the ATI card without the card itself being recognised. I could do with a little assistance as I'm lost in a sea of DSDT edits, and my DSDT looks a mess and nothing like the gigabyte ones you can download - if only I had a gigabyte board! I can attach any extra files if needed. Any help will be much appreciated. DSDT.aml.zip

    [Guide] Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on Zotac IONITX A

    USB2.0 can be tricked into working by making the changes to the bios like i did. Try it and see. Sleep/shutdown is controlled by my OpenHaltRestart.kext, or i've read you can use Evoreboot.kext.

    Snow Leopard USB 2.0 Problem

    I've got an smbios from an imac10,1 but i stilol get it to boot in 64 bit.. it just doesn't get past kext load screen.. See my post on :http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=197020&pid=1446683&mode=threaded&start=100#entry1446683
  6. No advance on finding out why I can't boot a 64 bit kernel?
  7. Below are the details of my installation of Snow Leopard 10.6.3 onto a Zotac IONITX motherboard with 4GB ram and a 64GB SATA SSD. (details of current setup first, and not basic installation from scratch) Using Chameleon as my boot loader, I have the following extensions in my Extra folder : AHCOPortInjector.kext, ALC662.kext, fameksmc.kext and OpenHaltRestart.kext. My smbios.plist is the basic copy of a Mac Mini original, and my com.apple.boot.plist has DSDT.aml enabled, Graphics Injector, 32 bit Bin-hacked Kernel from Teateam, Legacy Logo, PCIROOT zero and the Bullet Theme. My IOREG is attached. ioreg.txt My DSDT obtained using DSDT Patcher DSDT.aml.zip I use pfix version 3 from sojugarden to correct my permissions on /S/L/E and /E/E, and Chameleon 2 RC4 and Lizard.app to edit the plist. All of my SLE are originals, except IOUSBFamily.kext which is the debug version from Developer Apple. I have compiled JPEGS of the screens to my BIOS so you can see my settings: Archive.zip My last DMESG was this: (edited for privacy) npvhash=4095 PAE enabled 64 bit mode enabled Darwin Kernel Version 10.3.0: Fri Feb 26 11:58:09 PST 2010; root:xnu-1504.3.12~1/RELEASE_I386 vm_page_bootstrap: 767622 free pages and 18810 wired pages standard timeslicing quantum is 10000 us mig_table_max_displ = 73 Warning - kext com.apple.iokit.CHUDKernLib has immediate dependencies on both com.apple.kernel* and com.apple.kpi.* components; use only one style.

You can see from my signature what works - which is everything except audio (although i'm not sure I have all the features of ALC662). USB2.0 proved to be troublesome until I made an edit to my BIOS. Pics 20 and 21 in the achive zip. Before and After. I'm currently running at 32 bit even though i've run 10.6.2 kernel at 64 bit before this upgrade, i can't seem to get it to work on this setup for the time being. Anyone else have the Zotac IONITX motherboard with 10.6.2 or 10.6.3 running on it? I give credit to the following threads: (updated when I remember to put them all in) http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=197516 - this got me started, and i've adapted what I currently run from here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=197020 - source of my kernels
  8. I don't have a KP - I use Chameleon 2.0 RC4 to boot, I run with the attached DSDT and com.apple.boot.plist. If I alter the kernel flag in the boot list to x86_64 (which is what used to work on the same computer with 10.6.2 kernel) it doesn't get past the kext loading screen, goes black and computer restarts. Edit: Screenshot added from Chameleon Wait=Yes DSDT.aml.zip bootplist.zip

    10.6.3 Released !

    Initially I updated and trashed my installation - jumped in too soon without finding out what to change! Now i've updated to 10.6.3 and have had USB2.0 issues, Audio issues, and still waiting for 64 bit hacked kernel.
  10. No update on 64 bit version of 10.6.3 with atom support?

    Snow Leopard USB 2.0 Problem

    Well I got as far as using my patched DSDT which i got from DSDT Patcher, and the biggest change I made was in the bios. I switched on Legacy USB to Enabled and not Auto, changed EHCI handover to enabled, and then changed USB speed to Full Speed and not High Speed, and when it boots into OS X I get both my full speed hubs back, running at 480MB/s! I did not do dedicated device ID patching.

    Snow Leopard USB 2.0 Problem

    That webpage does NOT look like a walk in the park... I've got as far as obtaining my DSDT.dsl which i've attached.. but that comes from a system WITHOUT the USB2.0 working.. I can boot into windows 7 on the same machine, but i've no idea how to obtain the DSDT for that.. I've attached 2 DSDT's but they're both identical for the USB section which is shown below : Device(USB0) { Name(_ADR, 0x00040000) Name(_S1D, One) Method(_S3D, 0, NotSerialized) { If(LOr(LEqual(OSFL(), One), LEqual(OSFL(), 0x02))) { Return(0x02) } Else { Return(0x03) } } Method(_PRW, 0, NotSerialized) { Return(GPRW(0x0D, 0x04)) } } Device(USB2) { Name(_ADR, 0x00040001) Name(_S1D, One) Method(_S3D, 0, NotSerialized) { If(LOr(LEqual(OSFL(), One), LEqual(OSFL(), 0x02))) { Return(0x02) } Else { Return(0x03) } } Method(_PRW, 0, NotSerialized) { Return(GPRW(0x05, 0x04)) } } dsdt.dsl.zip

    Snow Leopard USB 2.0 Problem

    EHCI Unable to gain control from BIOS is apparently to do with IOUSBFamily kext see http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...=28559&st=0 So i'm bemused by the IOPCI.. kext replacement. I've downloaded it, so lets see if it works.. Nope. Didn't do a thing. What we need is a IOUSBFamily.kext with the correct EHCI controllers in it...
  14. What about Atom 330 X86_64 support on the net 10.6.3 kernel? I'm running it on arch=i386 at the moment because 64 bit choice doesn't run..

    10.6.3 Released !

    Are you saying that this update is all about HDMI? On an ION ITX, I have VGA and DVI with my monitor plugged into VGA. My HDMI output is not used. Do I have to switch over to DVI to my monitor and disable HDMI?
