Success: Mountain Lion (DP4 & GM) on Ivy i7-3770K/Z77X-UD5H/GTX 670

55 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm happy to report that using John Cash's guide (original post removed, download link at the end of this post), I was able to install Mountain Lion DP4 and GM on the following system without any extra kext modifications (only the default fakesmc.kext that came with the installer).

 

System:

 

- Intel Ivy Bridge i7-3770K

- Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H (firmware r8)

- 16 GB Corsair Ram DDR3 1600 (4x4)

- Intel SSD 330 180 GB

- EVGA FTW GeFroce GTX 670 (2 GB)

- Apple Airport Extreme mini PICe mod card

- Echo AudioFire 4

 

I'll probably update with some additional details as there are some minor things I ran into, but over all the installation was very straightforward based on John Cash's guide. I didn't need to do everything in his guide other than:

 

1. Create installation USB boot drive. (didn't do anything else extra here, didn't copy any new kext, etc.)

2. Install Mountain Lion using the USB drive

3. Reboot into USB, run ./finalize in terminal to install the bootloader on the hard drive.

4. Reboot into newly installed ML.

 

[Edit: note that John Cash's original "finalize" script also installs audio and CMOS fix kext. I commented them out. Installing them on my system seem to actually cause other problems.]

 

- iCloud sync works

- GTX 670 fully recognized with 2 GB, and full accelleration

- App store works, able to install previously purchased apps

- Sleep and wake up works, but with a minor issue (will explain later)

- Firewire works with the Audiofire 4 external sound card

- Wireless works with the Airport Extreme card

 

Update 1:

This machine has Windows 7, Fedora 17, and ML DP4, triple boot. Each OS has its own physical hard drive. I prefer this way to avoid any mess up. When I install a new system, I unplug all the other drives.

 

The minor issue I mentioned earlier is when I manually shut down/restart the machine after a successful wake up from sleep, the system freezes. I don't see any error logs in the console. When I don't sleep/wake up, the system shuts down normally. I'll have to play with it and see.

 

The great news is that this set up is very easy to work with and has very strong performance.

 

Update 2:

Just installed ML GM, everything worked even better than DP4, all my previous minor problems have gone away. Here are some screen shots and benchmarks:

You don't even need DSDT? Although i have heard that Z77 board is so native to OSX that it doesn't need a DSDT to sleep.

Sorry to tell you that you are going to reintall OSX very soon, Apple has just seeded Mountain Lion GM

Correct, didn't need a DSDT.

 

I have been waiting for the GM version, I can't wait to get my hands on the final version :).

Hi,

 

i have the same motherboard, cpu and gpu and i'm struggling to have a successfully installation of DP4.

 

When i try to follow step by step the John Cash's guide i get stuck at the very beginning.

 

I try to copy/paste the ''sudo install/mkboot /Volumes/USB'' command in terminal

 

i get this error: ''sudo: install/mkboot: command not found''.

 

The machine i tried to create the bootable usb is an imac running 10.7.4.

 

Help me please, because i'm forced to use windows for three days and i think i need psychotherapy! :)

 

Thanks

It looks like the error is caused by being in the wrong directory. Make sure you copied the "install" folder and "InstallESD.dmg" file to the desktop, or at least put them in the same directory. Then in terminal, you want to go to where you put them. Assuming the files are in your Desktop directory, in Terminal I did the following:

 

~$ cd Desktop/
~/Desktop$ ls
InstallESD.dmg My Boot Camp   install
~/Desktop$ sudo install/mkboot /Volumes/USB

To people who wants to know more, install/mkboot is just a normal bash script. You can open it up in a text editor and read what it's trying to do.

Lofen,

Thanks for the feedback. Could you post a geekbench score ? I'd like to see the memory bandwith.

 

Sure, see my modified post. The total came out to be 14395, memory bandwidth 8898. I think my Corsair RAM are not anything fancy, total cost about $100.

Nice score, did you do any overclocking? Which memory are you using?

Would you mind uploading the complete package you used?

 

I copied all the files from the package from John Cash to my Desktop but it refuses to work ._.

All you have to do:

 

1. Make flash drive with 2 partitions on MBR with FAT: one with name "Utilities", one with name "USB"

2. put folder "install" and "InstallESD.dmg" to your Desktop.

3. Open a Terminal Window and execute these commands:

cd Desktop

sudo install/mkboot /Volumes/USB

That is everything I get :(

 

1. name of your flash drive partition IS NOT "USB"

2. Did you copy "InstallESD.dmg" from "Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg". Right-click (control-click) on the app and select “Show Package Contents.” From here, navigate to the “SharedSupport” folder inside “Contents.” You’ll see a disk image titled “InstallESD.dmg.” and copy it to your desktop.

 

also try mount "InstallESD.dmg" if unmounted does not work...

The image I am using is the ESD, when it is mounted, it's called

Mac OS X Install ESD

:/

 

delete old one and try to copy again "InstallESD.dmg" from "Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg". Right-click (control-click) on the app and select “Show Package Contents.” From here, navigate to the “SharedSupport” folder inside “Contents.” You’ll see a disk image titled “InstallESD.dmg.” and copy it to your desktop.

some thing wrong with your InstallESD.dmg

EvgeniX,

 

I have the same system as you, and the overclock used to work in 10.7.4 and Win 7. After 10.8 GM install the machine boots and once the desktop shows up it freezes. If I remove the overclock and use default CPU speed the ML works great. In Win 7 Overclock still works.

 

Can you please share your bios settings and did you modify apple CPU power management or ssdt file?

1. I use F9d beta bios

2. CPU clock ratio 48, Boost Technology = Disabled, all other = Auto; 3D pover VLC = Turbo;

3. VCore offset = 0.125, PLL=1.7, all other = Auto;

4. DRAM = 1.535 @ 2133- 9-10-10-24-1T

 

this all I changed....

I'm using an i5 2500K with my Z77X-UDH5 with overclock settings at 4.8 GHz. According to HW Monitor I have only two speedsteps at 16x and 33x , so no overclock. :-(

I've tried a custom SSDT using Revogirl's script, other site SSDT and no SSDT without success. Otherwise ML GM is working great.

    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance. HBP
    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????

    • somehow I can't post a topic using safari and Firefox on Mac. no box for inserting text, is this kind of maintenance?  
    • Hello Allan!   I do have ACPIBatteryManager.kext and if i use IntelBacklight then I get stuck on boot with an error along of the lines of "busy timeout, (60s), : 'PEG0'". I have tried to patch the DSDT but failed. If i understand right, ACPIBatteryManager.kext needs DSDT edits to work? same goes for IntelBacklight?   EDIT: I tried to edit my stock DSDT using MacIASL again and i applied the battery patch for Asus Q550LF from @RehabMan Repo! I also applied the AsusFNkey DSDT patch. Now the battery meter pops up when i unplug the laptop. If i plug the charger back in, then the battery meter stays but does not update to show that the charger has been plugged in. Ive attached the DSDT below.. DSDT.aml.zip
