Step-by-Step Walkthrough for this build

 

1. Installing modified BIOS from blogspot blog "bios4asus" for native speedstep

2. formatting an 60GB USB HDD with Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

3. putting the lion installer in my application folder

4. creating bootable USB HDD with UniB

5. connecting USB HDD to my future hackintosh

6. setting SATA to AHCI mode and boot priority on USB HDD in BIOS

7. restarting and installing Mac OS X from the USB HDD

8. running through the first start config, hooking up the LAN and installing update to 7.3

9. creating a time machine backup on the USB HDD (just in case)

10. running xxx with:

- xxxxx Install

- Repair Permissions

- NO audio patch!

- NO eSATA patch!

-NO graphics patch!

- NO USB 3.0 patch! (causes shutdown reboot loop problem and most USB 3.0 devices won't be recognized anyway with this patch even if the bus shows up correctly in the system profile)

- Lnx2Mac's Realtek patch

- Kext Utily (required in 14. und 18.)

- ShowAllFiles (useful)

11. Installing the old CUDA Driver 4.0.21

12. Installing GTX 5XX Enabler 10.7.3

13. DELETING AppleUpstreamUserClient from the System/Library/Extensions

14. Running kext Utily

15. Adding <string>PCIRootUID=1</string> to the Kernel Flags in the Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist

16. Installing a VoodooHDA.kext 2.7.2 for 10.7.3 (which in my case already had the modifications for iGain, iMix, Mic and whatsoever) and if required (distorted output) setting playback to 16bit in Audio-Midi-Setup, if your VoodooHDA.kext does not have these modifications then add

 

<key>MixerValues</key>

<dict>

<key>iGain</key>

<string>0</string>

<key>iMix</key>

<string>70</string>

<key>Mic</key>

17. DELETING NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from the System/Library/Extensions (because having modified BIOS with native speedster)

18. Running kext Utily again

19. hooking up USB-bluetooth dongle and pairing magic mouse and wireless keyboard

20. having fun with hackintosh built
