  1. Thanks for Your great help guys. I finally managed to install everything, I will be compiling full guide in next couple of days! But before that I want to optimise and get everything running as much as I can. So at this point my concerns are: 1) I have tried installing a no DSDT kext from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] for my Realtek® ALC892 codec and tried VoodooHDA installer 2.8.4 from OSX86 file download None of them enabled audio. VoodooHDA installer showed that it failed to install. But after selecting Line-Out in my sound options the sound appears. Though this is not very worrying I would prefer to go with kextfor my audio chip. Suggestions welcomed. 2) nVidia official drivers are not available for 10.8.4 at this point, so I am using OSX bundled ones and here how my about mac screen As You can see -model for my GeForce card is not shown. Serial number also looks weird (possibly nothing to worry about). Any suggestion of getting this right are welcome. Thanks again guys, without You support I wouldn't get anywhere close!
  2. OK guys. I recreated USB install stick and reinstalled again, following all installation steps. Apparently I forgot initially to copy mach_kernel after install. Black screen problem is gone, but unfortunately on my first boot I am struggling with "PCI configuration begin" I already tried: -x -f -v PCIRootUID=0/1, -npci=0x2000/0x3000 Additionally using terminal and flashdrive I manually installed Chameleon (same version used for install drive) to my OSX drive. That didn't help. I also tried patched kexts from here http://www.osx86.net/view/3976-pci_configuration_begin_fix_for_10.8.x.html. Didn't help either. Any ideas are welcome.
  3. iMac 13'1 or 13,2. I copied 10.8.5 mach_kernel to Install drive as instructed. As far as I know when installing setup copies it to the drive where OSX is installed, am I wrong?
  4. I think that I tried those too, but I will retry to be super sure.

    Hey mate, if You follow similar thread then You probably saw that by using Vanilla installation method, SMBios.plist for newest iMac and mach_kernel from 10.8.5 I was able to install. The problem is though, that whenever I select my OSX drive to boot from I am welcomed by a black screen. Tried different flags - -v, -x, -f, PCIRootUID=0/1, GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes. No use so far.
  6. OK, major progress here. I added a SMBios.plist from a latest iMac and it allowed me to install OSX. I copied a FakeSMC.kext to OSX drive from USB drive. But whenever I select an installed partition after booting from USB drive I am granted with Apple login screen or if I go -v then it's just a black screen (after some loading lines) I already have tried -x, PCIRootUID=0/1, GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No. Any ideas are welcome.
  7. OK, now it's even worse. After installing second SSD into computer I can't even start and installation. After selecting a language I am presented with this:
  8. OK guys I made a progress here. I followed Vanilla installation guide and used latest Chimera, so I passed up to the graphical installer. Thanks everyone for Your suggestions. The problem I hit now is: after selecting a partition to install after copying ~230Mb of data, installer shows a message that Mac OSX could not be installed on this system. Theory is that it might be because of the second Windows partition and MBR. I just installed a second SSD drive in my computer and will try to install OSX there. If still won't work then I don't know where to go from here, some suggestions on the web are SMBios.plist. Image of the error:
  9. I guess myhack is bundled with Chameleon by default? I also tried U...beast which comes bundled with Chimera. Always same damned error - "PCI configuration begin".

    I remeber it's asking only about MBR(I selected "Yes"). I opened flash drive myself and moved all of the kexts (except FakeSMC) to /Extras/Removed.

    Thanks for Your help. So far I tried U..beast installer, myHack (I copied mach_kernel from latest 10.8.5 build) generic and with all kexts except FakeSMC removed. Tried with both npci options - 0x2000 and 0x3000, unfortunately still stuck. Any more ideas I could dig in?
  12. Thanks for Your help. So far I tried U..beast installer and myHack with all kexts except FakeSMC removed, it does not have dsdt.aml. Tried with both npci options, unfortunately still stuck. Any more ideas I could dig in?

    I fear problems that may occur on 1.9, as it's not even a beta. 10.8.4 on the other hand is stable and 10.8.5 brings a native support too in next couple of weeks.
  14. Hi mate! Do I understand You correctly, U installer is the one that is "beast" and not welcomed here? If that's true could You go a bit more in details please about the BIOS settings and installation process ( flags used/ onboard or discrete GPU used when installing )? Thanks. I followed the same process and always get stuck at "PCI configuration begin"

    Hey mate, could You please go more in details with this one. What tool did You use to prepare Your flash drive? Which build mach_kernel did You use? Did You install using Your discrete GPU or integrated GPU? Which flags You used when booting from install drive ? I have similar MB - GA-H87M-D3H - but I always stuck at PCI configuration begin when installing. Thanks!
