  1. This is not a "cheaper" board, it goes for $150 on Newegg and has almost every feature imaginable in a Z77 board. Everything works without the DSDT but I'm attaching it just in case anybody wants it. Also, LAN works now with this kext: http://www.osx86.net/view/3089-broadcom_netlink_bcm57781.html Asrock Z77E DSDT.zip
  2. My setup: Antec ISK110-VESA case i5-3570K 8gb DDR3 2133 80gb Intel SSD Dell DW1515 AR9280 Wlan Mini pci-e card Steps to get Mtn Lion working: 1. set graphics memory to 64mb in bios (important!) 2. install 10.8 GM from usb 3. after install, boot from usb and select new system 4. install MBeast 4.6.1 with these options: - Easy - Nullcpupowermanagement - Mac mini - Chameleon theme 5. install Chameleon 1.11.0 6. reboot HD4000 works perfectly on DVI (did not try VGA or HDMI) no wifi, LAN, or audio To get audio working: 1. create DSDT.aml with DSDT Editor and put it in /Extra 2. use MBeast 5.0 to install Realtek ALC898 (with DSDT) 3. reboot 4. go to audio control panel, and select internal speakers. also turn on volume control. To get WIFI working: 1. buy Dell DW1515 mini-pcie adapter (got one for $6 on Ebay) and swap it with stock card 2. in terminal: sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/Info.plist 3. delete these lines and save it: <key>OSBundleRequired</key> <string>Network-Root</string> 4. reboot 5. open network prefs 6. if you don't see a wifi connection, then hit + and add one, then apply
  3. It took me about 3 days to get everything working so I thought I would share my experience. The Acer Aspire 3830T-6417 has a 13.3" screen and Core i3-2310 with no internal dvd drive. Amazon offered it for $479 back in August and it sold out in hours so I expect a lot of people out there have this model. After much experimentation, I was able to get almost everything working: * HD 3000 with full QE/CI and res change * internal Wifi * trackpad with 2-finger scroll and gestures * audio Sleep doesn't work and I don't know about ethernet. Here's what you do: First, install 10.6.3: 1. Restore 10.6.3 retail dvd to 8gb flash drive with Disk Utility (you must use a flash drive, it doesn't work from the dvd) 2. Plug ext. dvd drive into left usb 2.0 port, 8gb flash into right 3. Boot [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 3.11, then press F5 4. Launch installer (on 8gb) with -v 5. At installer screen, unplug dvd drive, insert usb mouse plug 6. Use disk utility to partition disk as GUID 7. Customize options, uncheck all but Rosetta (optional) 8. On reboot, unplug 8gb flash, insert mouse, and boot with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. 9. Press F5 and then boot new partition with –v 10. At Welcome, press Fn + F8 to mute distorted audio Next, update to 10.6.8: 1. run 10.6.8 updater but don’t reboot 2. Run [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 3.80 (must use Chimera 1.4, not 1.5 which is in 3.90) with these options, but dont reboot [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] VoodooHDA 0.2.72 IOPCIFamily Fix IOUSBFamily Rollback Nullcpupowermanagement Voodoo Controller Macbook Pro 8,1 Don't select: USB 3.0 (causes system freeze when port used) Voodoo Trackpad (causes trackpad to not work at all) 3. after [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] is done, open terminal, and replace /boot with Kyle_c’s boot file (attached) 4. reboot WIFI-- Install kext (not kernel) from here with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] (no modifications necessary): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=257011 In my first attempts, I used [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 3.90 which claims to support HD 3000 natively but all I ever got was a black screen. I also tried Lion, but that was unsuccessful as well. kyle_c_boot.txt
