  1. NB : Attualmente lo stesso modello è stato aggiornato con modifiche all'hardware ( i3 3110-m HD 4000 ) Questa guida tratta solo il modello con hardware sotto elencato. Se differisce, informarsi sui diversi Kext e/o dettagli necessari. Per conoscere con precisione l'hardware in Vostro possesso, avviare una distro linux live e seguite questi comandi leggi Caratteristiche di quello in mio possesso : Intel i3 2348-m Intel HD3000 ( nessuna patch nel config.plist di clover ) Wifi on board non compatibile: sostituito con questa combo wifi-bluetooth leggi Ethernet tramite fake kext ( In realtà non funzionante ma utile per avere accesso all'Apple Store e servizi Messaggi, FaceTime ecc ) Audio Alc269vb (abilitato con voodooHDA 2.8.9.kext e prefpane ) allego i kext e config.plist già pronto. Occorrente: bios dettato in uefi, secureboot disabilitato e hard disk in AHCI, ordine di avvio 1)cdrom 2)usb 3) hard disk oppure all'avvio premete f12 per scegliere con quale delle tre precedenti opzioni fare il boot chiavetta usb avviabile Sierra creata tramite guida di gengik84 leggi cartella Sierra allegata con dentro: cartella 10.12 ( contenente tutti i kext necessari per avvio sistema, tastiera, pad, wifi, audio ecc.. ), clover configurator, ShowHiddenFiles, Efimounter, Voodooprefpane e Kext Utility Sierra version . Mia Modifica alla guida, usate una chiavetta da 16 gb partizionata come segue : partizione 1) da 8gb nominandola USB ( su cui installerete Sierra e Clover ) partizione 2) da restante spazio ( ha solo funzione di archivio ) nominandola come volete ma non USB , su cui andrete a salvare la cartella Sierra allegata. kext allegati ( usare l'intera cartella kext 10.12 per la usb e il post installazione ) tanta pazienza leggere e rileggere e rileggere ancora e poi ricominciare da capo a leggere la guida di gengik84 per capire bene i passaggi Procedimento: dato per scontato che abbiate creato una usb avviabile funzionante , avviate in verbose da chiavetta e procedete all'installazione. Al termine dell'installazione, quindi quando avrete riavviato da usb e selezionato come boot l'hard disk contenente Sierra, dovrete avviare clover configurator che vi permetterà di scaricare e installare Clover ultima versione ( troverete la funzione nel menu verticale sulla sx penultima voce Install/Update Clover ). Installato Clover tornate a clover configurator e montate la partizione EFI dell'HD interno.( la mia risulta sempre essere la disk0s1 mentre la EFI della usb è sempre disk1s1. Se per qualche ragione non dovesse funzionare Clover Configurator, usate EFI mounter ) e copiate la cartella 10.12 nella directory Efi-clover-kexts ( se non ci fosse, come avete fatto per la usb, createla manualmente ), e config.plist nella directory Efi-Clover. nessun Kext va installato in S/L/E ma tutti sotto Efi-clover-Kexts-10.12 Riavviate e siete a posto.

  2. Edited the 15/07/2014 Hi all ! After months of passive research i have found on some different forums a DSDT solution for disabling the NVidia card. Disabling Nvidia allow to save battery power of 2x and temperature of laptop too. My Specs Acer Aspire V3-571G-73614G50Makk :: Processor Intel Core i7-3610QM 2.3 GHz (Intel Core i7) :: Mainboard Intel HM77 (Panther Point) :: Memory 4096 MB :: Graphics adapter NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M - 2048 MB, Core: 708 MHz, Memory: 900 MHz, DDR3,, Optimus :: Display 15.6 inch 16:9, 1366x768 pixel, LG Philips LP156WH4-TLA1, TFT LED :: Soundcard Realtek ALC269 @ Intel Panther Point PCH - High Definition Audio Controller :: Networking Broadcom NetLink BCM57785 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (10/100/1000MBit), Atheros AR5BWB222 Wireless Network Adapter (b g n ), 4.0 Bluetooth :: Optical drive MAT{censored}A DVD-RAM UJ8B0AW :: Hackintosh Config SMBios : Macmini6,2 org.chameleon.boot.plist : link DSDT : link Extra Folder : link Source DSDT/SSDT Method ( work on it, not fully fonctionnal ) : Link here DSDT Method (work with all bootloader) Instructions Needed AIDA64 version 2.80 --> link ssdtPRGen.sh --> link AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext --> link MacIASL --> link Disabling NVidia card In the first step, dump your dsdt from Windows with AIDA64 (version 2.80 max) --> tuto YouTube Reboot on OSX This patch don't need to extract or modify any SSDT. You can see the DSDT edits in the link of qwerty12 topic in credits. Quickly, in DSDT, i call external method for disabling the card. These links calls methods of SSDT-4 in my config but can be different with your machine. You don't need to copy manually the _OFF method from SSDT to DSDT. Add these lines if you don't have them to the top of your DSDT : [...] External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF, MethodObj) External (_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON, MethodObj) [...] I added the method M_OF before the _WAK method : [...] Method (M_OF, 0, NotSerialized) { If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._OFF() } If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS3() } If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGOF() } ​ } [...] After that, i call the M_OF method in _WAK : [...] Method (_WAK, 1, Serialized) { M_OF () If (LAnd (LEqual (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC0.AAST, One), LEqual (\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC0.AAEN, One))) { Store (Zero, GP53) [...] And i call the M_OF method in the _INI method : [...] Method (_INI, 0, NotSerialized) { Store (0x07D0, OSYS) M_OF () If (CondRefOf (\_OSI, Local0)) { If (_OSI ("Windows 2001")) [...] If you use Chameleon or branch, paste your modified DSDT to your Extra folder and add these options to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist : <key>DSDT</key> <string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string> <key>DropSSDT</key> <string>No</string> If you use Clover Bootloader, copy DSDT file in "EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched" Reboot and go to Applications/Utilities/System Information Go to Graphics Card Section, if the NVidia Chipset not appear, it’s working. Enable the SpeedStep management The only problem with this technic is the Power Management. When your turn off the DropSSDT flags in org.chameleon.Boot.plist, Chameleon don’t go dump your SSDT tables in the ACPI tables of your machine. For enabling SpeedStepper with that fix, you should make a patched SSDT with the ssdtPRGen method : Download the later ssdtPRGen.sh Be sure that your SMBios.plist is appropriate with your CPU and system (A good SMBios can fix the iMessage, iCloud, iTunes and Apple Store connexion and login bugs). With my V3-571G core i7, i prefer the Macmini6,2 model for more speed steps. In Terminal app, launch the ssdtPRGen.sh with command : sudo sh /the_way_of_your_file/ssdtPRGen.sh Write your password and type "y" when it’s demanded for make a ssdt_pr.aml in your Extra folder only if you use Chameleon bootloader. If you use clover, copy this file in "EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/Patched" and rename it to ssdt-1.aml. If you have already a ssdt-1, rename it to ssdt-2... Reboot To be sure that your Speed Stepper is patched, download the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext and add it to your System/Library/Extensions/ folder with the kext installer of your choice. I for one better in Kext Utility. Rebuild cache with the app of your choice (kext utility make that automaticly) and reboot. At start, open your terminal app and type this command : cat /var/log/system.log | grep "AICPUPMI:" If you can see a lot of P-States, you did a good job. About problems Problem with auto ON after sleep Past this method before the M_OF method in your DSDT : Method (M_ON, 0, NotSerialized) { If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._ON() } If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._PS0() } If (CondRefOf(\_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON)) { \_SB_.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGON() } ​ } After that, call M_ON method in _PTS (Prepare To Sleep) so that the _WAK after sleep can shutdown the card.

  3. Hi everyone, as said above I have a problem with my old laptop (Acer 4739z-4823) I'm trying to install iAtkos S3v2 but im not able to boot after it finishes installing, it just reboots immediately after the apple logo, it doesn't even take 1 second to reboot itself. These are my system aspects: Intel Pentium P6200 Intel HD Graphics 2GB DDr3 Ram 500 Gb* Acer Nplify *The 500Gb caused boot0:error, I solved it with the boot1h file. What im trying to install: iAtkos s3v2 from USB, md5 checked, re-downloaded like 5 times. Also i've tried installing the retail version but it does the same, and I can't get even to the installation screen using the flags that I use with iatkos. To get to the installation screen I need to boot using this flag, if I don't use it it restarts. -v arch=i386 busratio=17 but it doesn't work when when it's already installed. I think the problem is what I select on the setup, as I don't have experience installing osx on laptops I just try random stuff, of course i've been doing some research before posting and besides that im not a n00b. I had my desktop running mountain lion but I sold it, so now I can't try other installation methods. Sorry if there is any mistake, english is my second language so if you can provide help in spanish it would be better but im ok with english too.
  4. so i have a mavericks custom build love it so i want to do the same for my laptop if possible. so my question is, can i use these laptop specs for a hackintosh? if so what version or distro should i use? sorry admins if distros are against the rules im still learning the rules and such of the community Acer Aspire 5724z CPU Name: Intel® Pentium® CPU P6100 @ 2.00GHz Manufacturer: Intel Speed: 2.0 GHz Category: Value Generation: 8th Brand: Pentium Dual-Core Cores: 2 GRAPHICS Name: Intel® HD Graphics Chipset: Intel GMA HD Core i5-5x0UM Manufacturer: Intel Memory: 128 MB Category: Mainstream Generation: 9th DirectX: 10 audio Name: Realtek High Defenition Audio Thanks

  6. Hello everyone! I have finally been able to run and install Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on my Acer Aspire M5 laptop, and let me tell you, my laptop is flying fast! The only thing is that I am unable to use my fn controls on my keyboard. meaning I cant change the brightness on my laptop. The only fn buttons that DO work are: fn+F4 = Puts the laptop to sleep fn+F6 = Turns off screen (In case you are using HDMI and both screens aren't on) fn+F7 = Turns touchpad off fn+F8 = Mutes sound fn+F9 = Turns off keyboard backlight fn+Up arrow = Volume up fn+Down arrow= Volume down The brightness control hotkeys are fn+Left for higher brightness and fn+Right for lower brightness. I have tried the app called "Shades" but it sometimes makes my screen flash randomly from low brightness to the highest brightness i've ever seen on my laptop. Here is my specs: Acer Aspire M5-581T-6405Mountain Lion OSX 10.8.2 Processor Name: Intel Core i5-3337U Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics 4000 RAM: 6 GB Display: 15.6" HD widescreen CineCrystal™ LED-backlit display (1366 x 768) P.s. I have another issue with not being able to upgrade from 10.8.2 to 10.8.4 I have the 10.8.4 combo update file and when I install the update I get kernel panics that say: Kernel Extensions in Backtrace: com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement and then when I reinstalled 10.8.2 again (fresh install) and I update to 10.8.4 from the update file, I am able to boot up in safemode (with -v -x) mousepad everything works, but I am unable to boot up normally? Thanks for your help
  7. I've been trying to clean up my DSDT and cleaned up all of the petty errors, however it seems to be confused as to whether or not it wants a Package or a Buffer toward the end. If anyone could help me out here, I'd greatly appreciate it. It's also worth noting that none of my USB ports (all 2.0) aren't working and if you see anything in there that might be the problem, brownie points all around! RandyDSDT.dsl.zip EDIT: Still haven't figured out the issue on my end, could really use some help here. It turns out all of the errors here seem to be related to USB so that could be a step in the right direction (or not.) My DSDT size is pretty large so I'm thinking there may be redundant or conflicting info inside. Can anyone take a crack at it? RandyDSDT.dsl.zip

    Run mac OSX on Acer Predator G7760

    Hallo, I have a Acer Predator G7760 wich i want to use with OSX. I tried to find some information about the compatibility of the hardware on this forum and the internet but didn't find any.

Some technical specifications wich might be help full: Intel Core i7 3.4GHz 16GB RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 The main board is a Foxconn n15235 If anyone could help me it would be great! Thanks in advance Greets Johannes
  9. Ciao a tutti, ho aperto questo topic per ricevere una mano riguardante l'installazione di iAtkos L2 sul mio notebook Acer Extensa 5635ZG. Ecco, inanzitutto i suoi componenti nel dettaglio: - Processore: Intel Pentium Dual Core T4300 @ 2.10GHz - Scheda Video: GeForce G105M - RAM: 4060 MB - Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter [NoDB] - Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20) [NoDB] - Seagate MOMENTUS 5400.6 250GB SATA Ora vi spiego in dettaglio come ho eseguito la procedura di installazione e il mio problema, allora: Ho creato una partizione sul disco in cui è installato Windows 7 con file system NTFS e impostata come Partizione Primaria, poi ho cambiato dal BIOS la modalità SATA in AHCI ed infine ho inserito il disco. Compare la schermata di iAtkos e premo F8 poi avvio con -v ma l'installazione si blocca con la schermata che vi allego. Attendo vostre risposte e vi ringrazio anticipatamente . Edit 1: Volevo chiedervi se provassi ad avviare l'installazione da HDD USB cambierebbe qualche cosa?

    Acer Aspire 4745

    Olá a todos este é meu primeiro topico e espero que não seja o unico. Tenho um Acer Aspire 4745 - i3 - 4gb - 320 hd - IntelHD - DVD Pois bem eu peguei a distribuição iATKOS L2 (Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2), e fiz o seguinte: Gravei em um DVD Dei boot no Notebook pelo DVD Fiz a instalação do Mac OS X Lion Quando ele reinicia fica na tela cinza a da maça. Segui os passos aqui falando Primeiro usei o boot -v Ele chega uma hora trava a tela. Fiz o boot -s quando eu digito mount -uw / Ele retorna Permission Denied (negado) Então gostaria de saber dos amigos como consigo resolver isto. Não sei se no Lion o kext IntelHDGraphic esta na mesma pasta do Snow Como eu consigo fazer acho que a solução já foi apresentada pelos amigos oldnapalm e MaLd0n, mais não sei como executa-la Solução apresentada mount -uw / mkdir kexts_backup mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelHDGraphics* /kexts_backup exit Ou eu fiz tudo errado? Tenho tanto o Snow Leopard e o Lion em minha maquina virtual VMWare funcionando belezinha, mais quero instalar mesmo, voos mais altos. Obrigado. Moska
  11. Ciao a tutti, ho un Acer Aspire 5920G (Specifiche in firma), qualche settimana fa ho installato iAtkos S3 V2 senza particolari problemi ed adesso vorrei provare a montare Lion. Ho provato con iAtkos L1 e con iAtkos L2 ma il problema che ho riscontrato in entrambi i casi è che si ferma il boot. (eseguendo in modalità verboose l'errore riscontrato è PCI Configuration Begin) Ho provato con svariati kernel flags di cui ho letto in moltissimi post ma nessuno ha funzionato ( ncpi=0x2000; arch=i386; PCIRoot=1, ecc.) adesso diciamo che ho lasciato stare questo metodo e sto seguendo la guida con metodo Unib****. Avete qualche consiglio da darmi a riguardo ? Il metodo migliore secondo voi per installare Lion, qualche consiglio per riprovare con Iatkos, Qualche dritta per l'installazione con Unib****...potrebbe essere utile non solo per me ma per chiunque abbia riscontrato questo problema o sia interessato ad installare Lion. Grazie Vi allego la screenshot dell'errore in boot con iAtkos

  13. Hi everybody! I need some help today: I’m trying to install Mac OS Sierra 10.12.5 on my friend’s laptop, which is an Acer Aspire 5250, but that’s quite a difficult task because it’s an AMD CPU. The model is AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics (graphics model Radeon HD 6320). I need some help because I can’t boot the installer, when I select my USB from Clover, after the row of pluses in verbose mode instead of showing me all the booting commands it stucks on a black screen and the screen starts flickering along with a continuous beep sound and so I’m unable to get to the installer. Do I need a patched kernel or something else? Are you able to give me some help? Thanks!

  16. I just successfuly installed El Capitan Vanilla on my Acer Aspire V5-571P and to my surprise and delight, the touchscreen works correctly. What works: Keyboard, Touchpad -- using Rehabman's latest VoodooPS2Controller. Touchscreen (!!) Tap and hold to drag, tap to select, etc. even handwriting "ink" works great! Sound - using VoodooPS2. Had to set input volume to minimum. CD, DVD, Webcam, USB On-screen audio controls, brightness keys, backlit KB Intel HD4000 graphics Wi-Fi Sleep, restart What's not working: Built-in WiFi - I'm using an Edimax AC600 Wireless Dual-Band Mini USB Adapter (model EW-7811UTC), which is fully supported under El Capitan. Built-in Bluetooth - I plugged in a cheapo "GT Max" USB Bluetooth dongle, which worked. Built-in Ethernet Not yet tested HDMI burning discs (About this Mac says burning is supported) How I installed: 1. on 8GB USB (using an existing Mac OS X computer): Used MacPwn to create El Capitan USB installer. Removed Bluetooth Kexts, used Enoch (rev 2773) on MBR-formatted USB. Booted with GraphicsEnabler=No 2. Followed guide "How to Vanilla Install El Capitan on Hackintosh with MacPwn.docx." Used Install Chameleon options as follows: Patches > KernelBooter_kexts, Settings > Intel Capri xxxxxxx004, Resolution > 1366x768x32. Not sure if it's all necessary, but here is the entire <dict> section of my org.chameleon.Boot.plist: <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1366x768x32</string> <key>IntelCapriFB</key> <string>4</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>ahcidisk=1 debug 8</string> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>3></string> </dict> 3. Installed El Capitan on 32GB USB using installer made in step 1, above. This time, I formatted the 32GB USB as GUID Partition Map, Mac OS X Journaled. Once complete, I removed Bluetooth kexts from S/L/E and plugged in an external keyboard. 4. Installed the kexts from the bootloader made with MacPwn to the S/L/E folder, using KextWizard. 5. Installed VoodooPS2controller, this made the laptop's built-in keyboard work. 6. Installed VoodooHDA, this made the sound work. Overall, I'm very happy with how this turned out! I previously had been running Mountain Lion on this notebook, but I couldn't get internet working.
  17. Hi there, I was trying to install osx El Capitan on the Cer Aspire 5750g. I was owndering if i needed to use ikatos or niresh.

Патчил по этим мануалам: AppleHDA for M.Lion & Mavericks Complete AppleHDA Patching Guide AppleHDA Binary Patching AppleHDA.kext (rampagedev) Даже просил многоуважаемого Mirone пропатчить AppleHDA (AppleHDA Patch Requests 27,28стр). Что самое интересное, полученные данные мной и Mirone расходятся: PinConfig (Без SPDIF) Mirone: Node 0х12(18) - 1000a090 Node 0х14(20) - 20001390 Node 0х18(24) - 30908100 Node 0х21(33) - 40102100 Мой: Node 0х12(18) - 3000a090 Node 0х14(20) - 10001390 Node 0х18(24) - 40908103 Node 0х21(33) - 20102103 Но факт, что ни тот ни другой вариант не заработали, пробовал другие варианты, вот что получилось (В скобках показаны возможные варианты двойки):

Голову уже сломал. Если несложно, помогите, пожалуйста. Итак, с PinConfig'ом разобрались. Решаем следующие вопросы: Как только делаю LayoutID inject (неважно каким способом: или через DSDT, или через HDAEnabler, или через Bootloader и т.д) Mac OSX грузиться очень долго: минуты 3 висит на сообщении "missing bluetooth controller transport", затем 2 минуты на сером экране, затем минуты 3 на экране приветствия, жду пока заработает клава с тачпадом, ввожу пароль, затем минут 10 жду пока система определит аудиоустройства в "System Information" и ещё минут 10 жду пока заработает звук, т.е появиться в "System Preference" и в "Audio MIDI Setup"; Такой же косяк , как и с VoodooHDA, каждые 10 минут пропадает звук или начинает хрипеть. Помогает изменение битности в "Audio MIDI Setup" на следующие 10 минут; При изменение системной громкости (неважно где, или в трее, или в "System Preference", или в "Audio MIDI Setup") начинаются 30 секундные лаги, аудио задержка и т.д. Возможные решения: Изменение DSDT (патчи) - пока не знаю какие; Дополнение HDEF секции; Изменение SignalProcessing в Layoutid.xml; Удаление/дополнение Amp в Platforms.xml; Подборка SMBios; Изменение параметров BIOS. Дампы с Линукса, вербы с Винды тут: Кексты тут: DSDT тут (после HPET, RTC, TMR, EHCI, DGTP, LPCB, IGP, Brighness патчей): AppleHDA ver 2.6.0f1 (10.9.2), работает и в 10.9.1 + LayoutID1.xml, Platforms.xml тут Господа, кто-нибудь может написать скрипт (демон), чтобы каждые 5 минут в "Audio MIDI Setup" менялась битность "Speaker ATAPI"/"Headphone (Black jack)" c "2ch-24bit channel" на "2ch-16bit channel" и обратно???
  20. Hello, I've just installed OS X ML 10.8.0 on my Acer Aspire E1-471G notebook, with below specifications: Intel Core i3-2348M -- Sandy Bridge -- 2 Cores Intel HD Graphics 3000 with NVIDIA GeForce 710M GPU 4 GB DDR3 Memory Broadcom Wireless LAN 802.11 BCM4313 Realtek LAN 81xx Realtek HDA ALC269 EA40_HC Motherboard ELAN PS/2 Smart-Pad touchpad (Hardware ID: ACPI\VEN_ETD&DEV_0501) Generic PNP Monitor (Hardware ID: MONITOR\LGD038F) Look, I am very noob about DSDT patches or what is it, but if it's the only way for me to get rid of these problems, I will do it. So, my problem lists is: 1. (A question actually) I can't install OS X 10.9 Mavericks on this laptop, in the middle of installation (about 11 min remaining) when it's extracting Essentials.pkg, the installer encountered an error. So, I install ML then. Why is it that way? 2. I can't get my BCM4313 WLAN working, even after I installed AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext (which on TextWrangler says pci(something)_4313 -- it's supported actually). Please somebody upload for me this kext, or tell me how to DSDT patch, if it's necessary 3. I can't get my ALC269 HDA working, tried so many AppleHDA.kext and VoodooHDA.kext and IOAudioFamily.kext and so many kexts, none of them are working. Does it needs DSDT patch? I haven't tried, if yes, please tell me how to do it 4. If I open the Notification Center, it always have some red-flicker on the scrollbar and if I open Safari, on the Top Sites page, it flickers EVERY TIME, so MANY TIMES and SLOWS DOWN my computer. Not just on Safari, but also on Launchpad, and other apps. How can I fix it? 5. I can't change my laptop brightness. No slider on System Preferences. Every one minute = -1%. How can I fix this? Reducing brightness might save A LOT of battery. Please, please somebody tell me how to patch or fix it, because I'm using this at school. (P.S: Windows: 3 hours and 41 minutes, Mac: 1 hour and 24 minute -- it only says like that, but when I let it on like that, boom! 30 minutes, run out of battery and shuts down immediately) 6. I can't install any PKGs on my hackintosh (okay, some can be installed). It always encounter me that some errors were encountered during the installation that makes Installer.app fails. I can't install MacFUSE, NTFS-3G, Java for OS X (Standalone, not from Apple Update), SmoothMouse, and more coming up) How to fix it? It's getting really annoying that this INSTALLER.APP always fails on me. 7. As I mentioned above, I am using ELAN Touchpad, how to enable the multi-finger? (it supports multi finger gestures, it's a smart-pad anyway) 8. I can't update my OS X, if I update to 10.8.5, it success, but when rebooting, I get a kernel panic that I cannot troubleshoot anymore using the installation disk (normally I can, using Terminal and myFix) as I have to reinstall Mac. 9. When my laptop comes to sleep time, it sleeps, because when I pressed/clicked any button, it asked me for password, but while sleeping, the screen IS WHITE ??? It just reducing my battery VERY QUICKLY. How exactly to fix it? Lastly, if someone can do it for me, I'll be very thankful and grateful for it. Can anybody upload for me, the driver kexts that are compatible for my laptop? If my questions are too much, I'm sorry. I live in a country with different time zone, so I just ask everything I want and the next morning, I hope I can get my answers. Please answer my questions, this hackintosh is really something to me THANK YOU SO MUCH Regards, Phillmont PHILLMONT-PC.txt
