    OS X Yosemite DP's builds!

    The same problem here. I cannot find mach_kernel in the Yosemite install app. kernel from the other suggested place cannot be extracted. Tried to create install USB without it but the installation would stop complaining that can't find mash_kernel. At the same time I noticed that Yosemite on a genuine iMac does not have mash_kernel nor any hidden file called "kernel" in the root directory. Mavericks has mach_kernel in the root directory!? has something more fundamental changed except from signing kexts?

    Mavericks 10.9.2 Released to Dev

    I cannot boot Hackintosh after installing 10.9.2. Stops somewhere after the message :"VM Swap Subsystem is ON" or after completed IOBluetoothController startup. Never had a major booting problem on this machine since I put it together more than two years ago. What I did: 1. Tried upgrade - didn't boot. 2. Restored kexts that appeared to be new in 10.9.2 with the ones from 10.9.1 System.kext IOGraphicsFamily.kext IONDRVSupport.kext IOPCIFamily.kext Repaired the disk and reinstalled Chameleon. The problem persisted. 3. Formated system drive, did fresh install 10.9.1, and then did upgrade to 10.9.2 No change - doesn't boot. UPDATE: Problem Solved! Simple "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" solved all the problems. Up until this version both GraphicsEnabler Yes or No would work!?

    OS X 10.9 DP's builds

    Installed DP 4 - had to apply RTC and TRIM fixes again as they disappeared. Everything seems to be working fine. It appears that it is significantly faster startup in DP4 than in any other previous DP version and faster than in ML. By this I mean the time from the moment the Apple sign appears to the moment you are presented with login screen is significantly shorter. Installed GenericUSBXHCI in DP3 and USB3 is working fine. Sleep is not affected - functional. p.s. After trying all sorts of tricks I could possibly find regarding enabling Face Time and iMessages, iMessages not working. I managed to get them working in DP1 then it stopped when I installed DP2. I got it working again after I signed off iMessages from my genuine MBP. Later, when I changed network configuration it stopped working again. Since then no success! I reinstalled from scratch and changed serial number using the Champlist application - rejected! Then installed DP3 on MBP using an external USB SSD, moved to Hackintosh installed Chameleon, FakeSMC. Got recovery partition, and all the bells and whistles, including FaceTime working but iMessage rejects every option on this MB (GA-X58-UD7)!? Independently tried to install 10.9 on RAID 0 (two SATA 3 SSDs) by copying an existing working disk image to RAID 0, then installing Chameleon on both drives, and pointing Chameleon to RAID ID. No success to pass even boot - OSX "panic attack".

    OS X 10.9 DP's builds

    Updated DP1 installation using DP2 from the Software Update on Gigabyte GA-X58-UD7 - everything seems to be working fine. Minor fixes needed: had to reapply AppleRTC fix to solve the BIOS corruption issue and also had to reapply Trim enabling. An issue I had with DP1 remains the same: very slow Bluetooth awakening after sleep. Sometimes I have to take out Bluetooth stick and put it back after a sleep to get it working. Otherwise "rotating ball" stays for a long time - blocking any activity. Any help appreciated!

    OS X Mavericks 10.9 DP2

    Updated DP1 installation using DP2 from the Software Update on Gigabyte GA-X58-UD7. Everything seems to be working fine - minor fixes needed: had to reapply AppleRTC fix to solve the BIOS corruption issue and also had to reapply Trim enabling. An issue I had with DP1 remains the same: very slow Bluetooth awakening after sleep. Sometimes I have to take out Bluetooth stick and put it back after a sleep to get it working. Otherwise "rotating ball" stays for a long time - blocking any activity. Any help appreciated! traduction approximative: Mise à jour de la DP1 vers la DP2 via l'utilitaire des mises à jour d'Apple sur une Gigabyte GA-X58-UD7. Tout semble fonctionner correctement - corrections mineures nécessaires: fallait réappliquer AppleRTC fix pour résoudre le problème de la corruption du BIOS et aussi réappliquer le Trim patch. Un problème que j'ai eu avec la DP1 reste le même: sortie très lente du Bluetooth du mode veille. Parfois, je dois prendre la clé Bluetooth et la remettre après la mise en veille pour la faire fonctionner. Sinon, "boule tournante" reste pendant une longue période - bloquant toute activité. Toute aide serait appréciée!

    OS X 10.9 DP's builds

    No offence, PGHAMMER but I would really like to know if there is a Clover installation guide - instructions in plain English. Everybody is talking about it as a "God Given" product with features never seen before. Zillion of posts full of almost religious appreciation but no simple instructions how to do a trivial install on a BIOS MB?!? Further on, similar thing with enabling iMessage on Hackintosh: use Clover and all your problems will be solved. But no simple To Do list with instructions how to do it. Am I missing a blog, post, or manual that everybody else knows? If I do, and anybody is aware of that magic post - guide, please let me know!

    OS X 10.9 DP's builds

    Interesting!?! Installed Mavericks DP1 on Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 following install guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289062-109-mavericks-simple-vanilla-hackintosh-install-guide/ No issues and...unfortunately almost no fun at all: straightforward install. Audio and network work with old AppleHDA and RealtekRTL81xx. Apple ATI Radeon HD 5870 works OOB. Old problem from ML 10.8.4: Cannot sign into iMessage. (I have to admit, I haven't tried hard with iMessage fixes even in ML.). Parallels refuse to work - complain about million of things. But that is Parallels standard behaviour every time new version of Mac OSX is out. (I wouldn't be surprised if Parallels app just checks OS version number and refuses to work until they haven't tested it properly and until you pay them for a new version.) Now the strange, interesting part!! Sleep works without AppleRTC patch?!? No BIOS reset! Gets even better: ML problem that Trackpad and Apple Bluetooth Mouse would not work after sleep, now they come back just fine?! UPDATE: 1. Sleep does work without AppleRTC patch: going back and fourth to and from sleep without a problem. However, once I tried to restart, which I haven't done before I posted the message above, the system it did corrupt BIOS. The good news is that the patch from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289040-os-x-109-dps-builds/?p=1923447 solves the issue. 2. I got Parallels working using a script that the company put on their web site. http://kb.parallels.com/en/116259 I am pleasantly surprised and thankful they reacted so quickly this time. 3. I tried to enable iMessage but no success. Couldn't install Clover on GA-X58A-UD7: couldn't figure correct install configuration. In every trial Boot friezes in character mode showing "7" as a boot option. On the other hand way to many postings on both iMessage and Clover - hard to figure out which one to follow. 4. Managed to get Mavericks Install show on the monitor using Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 6870. It did not work on ML!

    Mountain Lion - DP4 - Install Notes

    Installed DP4 on my Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 board without any problems. On the other hand, GA-X58A-UD3R board install didn't go well at all. UD3R has always been perfectly stable and I expected an uneventful install. But I got unresponsive App Store application - it would show up and when I wanted to check my updates or purchases it would start endless spinning wheel - I had to Force Quit it. Textedit and preview would crash "Unexpectedly". Eventually, after three clean disk installs, I gave up. Created disk image of my UD7 boot disk and restored it on UD3R machine (Replaced DSDT) - works perfectly?! No clue what the problem was!!
  10. Had a problem with Bluetooth Dongle Asus USB-BT21 - v2.0 + EDR. Doesn't work in ML 3 Build 12A193i but use to work OOB with all previous versions of SL, Lion, and ML. Changed it to Belkin Mini Bluetooth Adapter - v2.1 + EDR and everything works OOB. Still, before you go to buy new Bluetooth Dongle, check in System Preferences if you lost Bluetooth configuration option. If that is the case, the dongle is most likely your problem. And of course, that may be a glitch in the current build of ML that will be fixed later. Or it may also happen that support for Asus Bluetooth or support for version 2.0 are gone forever from ML. Correction: "Changed it to Belkin Mini Bluetooth Adapter - v2.1 + EDR and everything works OOB." - Not everything works! After sleep, multitouch functionality is gone! I believe there is a kext responsible for multitouch. They either changed it or for some reason doesn't get loaded after sleep. After a full reset - everything is fine. Correction 2: "Changed it to Belkin Mini Bluetooth Adapter - v2.1 + EDR and everything works OOB." - After battery change I cannot connect trackpad to the system anymore! There was a similar problem with Lion 10.7.2 that was resolved later with Chameleon setup (if I am not mistaken). Cannot find the topic anymore.

    Parallels on ML Problem

    Thanks for the clarification! Out of curiosity, what is "HD" you are referring to: Thanks
  12. Has anybody managed to run Parallels 7 in ML? I get number of errors starting with: "Your virtual machine may run slow because virtualization support is disabled on your Mac. For optimal performance, please enable hardware virtualization support in your Mac's firmware." and "Unable to load the Parallels driver. Restart your Mac and try again." to finish with: "Unable to start the virtual machine. An unexpected error occurred while starting the virtual machine. Contact the Parallels support team for assistance." I remember there was a problem with Parallels running on Lion prerelease too. Any idea how to solve this or just wait until they update to Parallels 8?
  13. Could you please post the patched AppleRTC.kext that works on X58A-UD3R rev 2? I have the same MB and had AppleRTC.kext patch that use to work (no CMOS rest and perfect sleep) since May. On Wednesday, I had a problem with iCloud and had to reinstall Lion and use latest version of Chimera. Very same patched AppleRTC.kext is now working only partially: no CMOS reset but the system does not wake from sleep!? Also tried to patch new AppleRTC.kext which comes with 10.7.2 using script from message #340 - the same, partial (un)success. Interestingly enough, I have the same issue on another Gigabyte MB - X58-UD7!? Any help or hint how to get my good night and Hackintosh sleeps back is highly appreciated. Edit: The things are even worse than I initially thought! Even Shut Down causes CMOS reset. The only thing that works is Reset? EDIT 2: SOLVED THE PROBLEM !!! It had nothing to do with Chimera or 10.7.2 update! Realtek Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.0.6 for 81xx Ethernet controllers is the culprit!!! As soon as I removed it, everything went to normal with old patched AppleRTC.kext.
  14. First, my deepest appologies for not responding earlier. I was getting unmanageable number of messages while I was working on a project (the one I work on for living) that had to be finished before I went on vacation. So I had to shut down all the alerts on some ten topics that I was following or I had started. Now I am on vacation in Mexico and I will be back home on Aug 1. So let me give you an update on the issues with 5770, 5870, and 6870 cards and ACD 27". After numerous attepts to get the things running, I settled with Sapphire Vapor-X 6870 and genuine Apple 5870 that work with both Lion and 10.6.8 OOB (didn't get iDvd to work with either one even with Netkas ATY kext but nit something I really use). My nephew got lucky and got my XFX 5770 as a present (he runs Windows) after I got sick and tired of trying to get it work with ACD. My Sapphire Vapor-X is in my locker waiting for some other relative's birthday to be given as a present. After I get home, if any of you still need some tests to be done on Sapphire 5870, please let me know and I will do it. Kind regards

    ATI 5870 working with lion?

    That should be no-brainer. 5870 is recognized by the Mac Lion no need to configure anything. Succeeded with Sapphire and genuine Apple 5870 cards. The only issue I had was with Sapphire Vapor-X and Apple Cinema Display connected on MDP. Everything else works OOB.
