  2. ASUS G72GX Notebook - Perfect Hackintosh!

    Hey I replaced my IOSDHCIBlockDevice.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext and now my mac partition wont boot up. I thought I had backed them up but i guess it didnt. Does anyone else have the 10.6.7 versions of these kexts from thier install I can use ? Thanks!
  3. ASUS G72GX Notebook - Perfect Hackintosh!

    Hey Everyone, I just wanted to add my two cents to my topic and what i got to work for me. Initially i had a friend of mine come over and clone his OSX drive onto mine which had preinstalled kexts he thought i would need in order for OSX to run on this computer. We got it running smooth after about an hour with WiFi, sound, and webcam all working. We had to add an EFI string for an Nvidia 9800 GT because apparently it is on the same chipset as the GTX 260m (This fixed an issue we were having with the display being stuck at a lower resolution). After he left I realized that things like Preview werent working and the computer seemed a little sluggish for the specs. After doing some research I realized the full graphics hardware acceleration was not enabled. I tried a plethora of Kexts and messing around with graphicsenabler in Chameleon but with no luck. After about 2 days i decided to just try wiping the drive and Reinstalling from scratch on my own. My G72GX now is running perfectly with graphics acceleration, and all the hardware recognized (including my graphics card as the GTX260m and E-SATA) on 10.6.7 . The only thing I have not been able to get to work is ProTools because of its apparent conflict with VoodooHDA. I am also running it off of an additional internal SATA drive if that matters. My install Process was : Download Snow Leopard Retail Burn The DMG/ISO image to my 16Gig flash drive Download [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Burn [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to a DVD-R (I am pretty sure the image is small enough to burn to a CD but i didnt have any) Set boot Priority to DVD drive in the BIOS Boot to [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] DVD Select to boot to Flash drive that Snow Leopard is installed on Select Disk Utility from one of the drop down menus Reformat Drive I wanted to install OSX on to HFS+ Close Disk Utility Follow Instructions Onscreen to Install Snow Leopard Reboot Select the drive I installed OSX on to boot to in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Go Through welcome experience (at this point I had full Graphics Acceleration, Correct Display Resolution, WiFi and webcam) After it boots to desktop, check the System profiler. Mine was reading 4Gb of Ram, And my GTX260M.

I believe the only kext I installed in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] was VoodooHDA and VoodooBattery because at this point I had no Audio nor battery indicator. Reboot Set my OSX drive as boot priority in the BIOS It should boot to Chameleon at this point Select OSX to boot to At this point I now had audio and now OSX recognized the full 6Gb of RAM. I think i had to use a kext in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to get the ESATA to work later on. For me it only works if I boot up with the ESATA drive already connected and then it reads as an internal drive but that is not an issue for me. I hope this helped.
