I bought a mac mini 2010 case and trying to built my first hackintosh system. I was wondering if any one has built a hackintosh using this Intel DH61AG Mini-ITX board?


thank you

I haven't got a working hackintosh with this motherboard, but it should work. The chipset works, audio, video, ethernet... should all works with tonymacs drivers from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. The problem is that there is no dsdt for this board, but when you don't need hdmi or something like that you can use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to allow your system to boot from the hard drive.


*You can also make your own dsdt

thanks for your reply StewieGrif......


I was planing to used the HDMI to connect to the LED TV as a monitor. I have a lot of reading to do how to create my own dsdt.

I am new here, but have been a member at Tonymacx86. I have this board and currently struggling to get Lion installed on it. Here are my hardwares:

  1. Viako ML-55 case with 100W AC Adapter that came with the case
  2. [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Lion installer made through App Store purchase from my older SL Hack
  3. 2GB RAM from my laptop (will upgrade soon to 8GB of G.Skill or Corsair)
  4. 3.5" HDD Samsung 1TB (once I can load Lion on this board, I will be getting an mSATA SSD and another 2.5" HDD)
  5. DH61AG board
  6. Connecting to an ASUS 21" monitor via HDMI to DVI cable


BIOS Summary:

  • Set BIOS to AHCI and SMART enabled
  • Set IGP to be always on and Max RAM (did not have 480MB+2MB like GA boards do)
  • Boot from USB and as the first device to boot
  • Was not able to find HPET, nor S3 state in Power Mgmt in the BIOS screen

Where I have gotten so far:

  • I basically get the "Still Waiting for Root Device" after USB devices are recognized/identified when running in verbose mode
  • I have tried -v -x PCIROOTUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=0 but results are the same

I would love to get this working, so any help/input will be appreciated. I will report any progress/success as well. Thanks!

Here is a brief progress report:

  • Using Tony's [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], I was able to complete a fresh installation of Lion 10.7.2, followed by [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] for sound and other functionality
  • Sound, Ethernet, USB, Graphics qe/ci all work
  • Issues with sleep and wake - display sleeps but others don't and can't wake
  • Using SleepEnabler.kext goes to sleep and wakes up with the reset button, but have to unplug/replug keyboard and mouse, and Ethernet is lost and can't get it back.
  • With 2GB of RAM, geekbench score was 6,078.
