Thoughts about Mountain Lion with Atom (yes, Atom)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

I'm trying to get 10.8.2 up and running on my old Ion board, and can't seem to get the video card and software to shake hands and be friends. The gfx chip is the 9400m, the CPU is atom330. My setup for 10.6.8 worked really well, and I think this one will as well, once the gfx issues get sorted out.

 

The problem: system will load up to IOBluetoothHCIController [start] [completed]. From there it hangs. From a boot standpoint, this is when the graphic heavy lifting kicks in/frame buffer is initialized.

 

Attempted fixes: boot with -x, boot w graphicsenabler=yes/no, NVEnabler in E/E, unloading and loading back NVDA kexts one at a time to see if any are rotten. I think the solution requires patching the 9400m-specific NVDA kexts for 64bit, but I'm too noob for that.

 

Any suggestions or insights would be immensely helpful!!

Hi guys,

 

I have been messing around with hackintosh for about two weeks. I have successfully been able to get leopard and snow leopard on two older Dell Optiplexs. I have a Foxconn Nettop kicking around that I was using as a HTPC running Windows 7 (before I discovered Apple TV). My info is below. I have an 80 gig hard drive and 2 gigs memory (I believe that is what I have. I am on the road and I don't have it in front of me to check). I'm wondering if I can put Mountain Lion on this. Straight up install, no dual boot for the Windows 7 (I actually have a spare hard drive that I could experiment on and put the Windows 7 hard drive back in if I find it doesn't work). As being very new to this, any detailed help would be greatly appreciated. I have googled this topic to see if anyone has tried this on a Foxconn Nettop, but it doesn't seem to be a popular model. I have done both of my installs off iDeneb and Hazard distros.

 

Thanks in advance

Update...

 

I was able to install ML with ######. Ethernet, worked out of the gate. I used the ###### to get audio working (Voodoo). SD card reader works too. Wifi is not working and I can't seem to figure out how to get the graphics working...they are very slow. I haven't done a software update from Apple yet, I want to wait until I get atleast graphics working. I have been writing everything down that I have done, so I can write a tutorial. I would like to see if I can get the HDMI working (I haven't tried to hook it up to anything yet, as I doubt it would work). I think I may have Broadcom Crystal HD?

 

Anyone with any ideas or comments?

Intall the latest chameleon package and run it to your USB stick, making sure the kernel patcher module is installed on it: it will make the vanilla 10.8.2 kernel boot just fine. Your CPU should be compatible, since it's 64-bit capable.

 

Best regards!

Finally got 10.8.2 installed on my JetWay JBC600C99352W thanks to this thread. Just one quick question for those of you that have been up and running on 10.8.2 for a while, did you have the need to fix your AGPM for the Nvidia ION/ ION2 to work properly or is it not needed?

Nvidea ION usually works fine oob with chameleon and graphicsenabler=yes with full QE/CI. ION2 on the other hand is as far as I know problematic...

Guess I will have to install HWSensors and run some videos to see if it throttles properly. Appreciate the input.

After running on 10.8.2 with iStats 4.0.5 installed, the nVidia ION2 seems to be throttling properly. I cannot believe that this machine with a D525 is running OS X pretty smoothly. With Plex installed, it relieves some of the strain when playing back 1080p videos and everything works flawlessly. Thanks to meklort and everyone else who this possible! :thumbsup_anim:

I have an Intel D945GCLF2 mobo, which I've had running Snow Leopard.

 

I'd love to install Mountain Lion.

 

Do you think the D945GCLF2 with the addition of this Gforce 610 would accept an install of Mt. Lion?

 

I ask this because I think the onboard video is no longer supported.

if I'm right, your MB has an Atom 330 (2 cores, 64bit) so with this patched kernel, it should be ok ;)

 

Intel GMA950 will not work, needs a 32 bit kext and ML is only 64 bit system

 

but with a GT 610 (OOB working), it should be ok too ;)

hi guys,

 

i need some help. im a noob with installing mac osx.

i've got a asus 1015pem netbook which has a Atom N550, with a GMA 3150.

I've tried to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], but couldn't create the USB installer stick for some reason so I tried, myH**K. Which made a USB install of 10.8.3

 

When I boot with this, I seem to get a black screen when the graphics tries to initiate and the system seems to hang there. So trying GraphicsEnabler=No and -v. Doesn't do anything. Still black screen.

 

I've been reading a few guides which mention that if I get the black screen, I need to remove the graphics kexts to force 10.8 to go into VESA mode. I removed the AppleIntelHD kexts, but still I'm faced with a black screen.

 

Any ideas on how to fix this? Is my problem , that I need the patched kernel on the USB installer?

 

How would I install mountain lion on this N550 netbook?

Can someone tell me, how to get the installer working?

 

Of course the netbook doesn't have DVD Drive so , I couldn't try Nir*s*h

 

 

thanks.

You need a component of Chameleon that doesn't exist in the other tool - that's why Voldemort's spells won't work - called the KernelPatcher.dylib. Without it, you're wasting your time.

 

All the best!


P.S.: are you sure you want it? GMA3150 means no QE/CI by any means: YouTube won't play, iWork - forgive me the lousy pun - won't work, QuickTime won't run properly for any resolution that's watchable, VLC will crash etc - the list of what you'll be missing is really long. So why not try to get an older laptop with better compatibility (first gen core i3 could be a good deal) or even an older netbook with compatible graphics, such as the Asus 1201n?

I've had good success using the MLPostFactor 32-bit Mt. Lion installer on hackintosh laptops that lack 64-bit video cards. For example, a Dell Inspiron 1525 with X3100 GPU runs 10.8.5 with full QE/CI via an MLPostFactor installation which uses a modified 32-bit Mt. Lion Dev.Preview kernel. What I'd like to do is use MLPostFactor's 32-bit Mt.Lion installation on an Atom-based netbook, specifically an MSI U100 with Atom N170 CPU. I've been able to get the installer to start, but I think the problem is that the mach_kernel isn't patched for Atom, and all the Atom patched Mt.Lion kernels are 64-bit only.

 

My question: How can I patch the MLPostFactor 32-bit Mt. Lion mach_kernel to support the Atom N170 CPU?

 

This is a big deal, it would enable Atom netbooks to jump from 10.6.8 straight across to 10.8.5 with QE/CI acceleration for older GPUs like the GMA950 or X3100.

By any means, indeed. I tried to get it to work and spent a couple of hours on it.  No way to get the 3150 to behave.

Who is up for the Yosemite challenge?

 

I've got my beta downloaded and I have managed to get it work on my Hackintosh Pro (Mac Pro case with PC parts)

 

I want to play with it on the 1201n just to see if there are any speed improvements, but I am hoping to corral a bunch of us back to the forum to participate in getting all the functions working as well as they have for Mavericks.

I already have Yosemite up and running on the 1201N since it's out. I'm on DP4 now. It works as good as ML, and with an almost vanilla system, thanks to TimeWalker75a's support package. You'll need latest Clover. Good luck!


Here:             #7            


P.S.: the support package adds other cool features, such as screen dimming before sleep (even the real MBA 2,1 doesn't have it), full hotkey support, perfect sleep and wake, working hardware sensors, working AGPM, working hardware BT and Wi-Fi switching etc. I can tell that, aside the weight and the CPU/battery performance, I have near-MBA user experience.


P.P.S.: TimeWalker75a said he'll perhaps disassemble the NVDAResman.kext to make it output proper digital AV signal for HDMI. No promises made, mind you, but if he actually manages to do it, we 1201n users would enjoy HDMI audio, which was never possible. Wouldn't it be cool?

Hoang, it can be done, but your graphics card isn't supported by OS X and will never be. Just like good old GMA 3150, it will render slow graphics and perhaps improper resolution. Meklort developed a solution that enabled a working frame buffer for the 3150 - still, no QE/CI - but I thing it would do no good for your specific GPU. So, in a phrase: only install it if you absolutely don't care about graphics.

      I have a Mac Mini 2006 (upgraded) with Intel GMA950 graphics, running MLPostFactor 10.8.5.  It is connected to an ASUS VS197 LCD panel using DVI-D.  This is natively a 1366x768 panel that is recognized and works fine.
       
      However, the other choices for resolution are 4:3 800x600 and 1024x768, and then the oddballs 832x624 and 1360x768.  None of these are useful as a low-resolution widescreen for gaming or watching DVD content.  Specifically I want to get access to 848x480 or 854x480, and also 1024x576.  SwitchResX makes these choices available, but it doesn't work with a "full screen" game, presumably because the game directly queries OSX Display to get a list of valid resolutions and SwitchResX is bypassing that system instead.
       
      So the solution is obvious: buy a new computer pull the monitor's EDID data, hack it to enable new resolutions, and then tell OSX to use this custom EDID instead of the one retrieved from the monitor.
       
      Following the steps of the EDID injection guide, here is where I am:
       
      * Retrieve EDID, DisplayVendorID etc from ioreg.
      00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 04 69 F2 19 24 94 00 00 31 16 01 03 80 29 17 78 EA F5 45 A4 55 50 9E 27 0F 50 54 BD EE 00 81 C0 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 66 21 56 AA 51 00 1E 30 46 8F 33 00 9A E6 10 00 00 1E 00 00 00 FD 00 32 4B 18 53 11 00 0A 20 20 20 20 20 20 00 00 00 FC 00 41 53 55 53 20 56 53 31 39 37 0A 20 20 00 00 00 FF 00 43 43 4C 4D 54 46 30 33 37 39 32 34 0A 00 F1 * Use an EDID editor to enable new 848x477 and 1024x576 resolutions.  (Verify with an online EDID tool, and compare to the previous version)
      00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 04 69 F2 19 24 94 00 00 31 16 01 03 80 29 17 78 EA F5 45 A4 55 50 9E 27 0F 50 54 BD EE 00 81 C0 4B C0 4B CA 4B CF 61 C0 61 CA 61 CF 01 01 66 21 56 AA 51 00 1E 30 46 8F 33 00 9A E6 10 00 00 1E 00 00 00 FD 00 32 4B 18 53 11 00 0A 20 20 20 20 20 20 00 00 00 FC 00 41 53 55 53 20 56 53 31 39 37 0A 20 20 00 00 00 FF 00 43 43 4C 4D 54 46 30 33 37 39 32 34 0A 00 47 * Create a new subfolder and plist within /System/Library/Overrides/Display/ containing the new EDID string and monitor name.
      * Reboot.
       
      Now the problems begin.  Even though the plist file is being read (which I know because the Monitor Name has changed in Displays), the custom EDID is not being used.  When I dig into IORegExplorer I am able to come up with AAPL00,EDID string and it is the unmodified one read from the monitor.  I even tried a plug-and-unplug while OSX is running, and also tried to reset the SMC and NVRAM, but no dice.
       
      Do I need to start digging into DSDT hacking?  Is the Intel driver pulling down EDID during boot and I need to override it somewhere else?  What am I missing here?

      So I have an old PC and I decided to install 10.5.8 just for fun. I installed the iDeneb distro and it works fine witl the vanilla kernel 9.8 but I can't boot without cpus=1 so I have to use only one CPU core. I tried all patched kernels with Chameleon and Clover. All result in the same issue. I suspect the issue is the patched AppleACPIPlatform.kext that I grabbed from the iAtkos 5i DVD because the kernel panic mentions it in the backtrace. Any ideas? Specs:
      Core 2 Duo E7500
      MSI G31TM-P35
      4GB DDR2
      Geforce GT 430 (No QE/CI since no support in Leopard)

      Hello,
       
      I've been attempting for the past few days to install OS X Mountain Lion on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E530 with little success. So much so that I've finally decided I'm probably out of ideas and created this forum post requesting help.
       
      My Laptop Specs are:
       
      Intel Core i3-2328m (Sandy Bridge CPU at 2.2GHZ with support for SSE2 , SSE3 and SSSE3)
      8GB RAM
      500GB Hitachi Z7K500 HDD
      Lenovo 627226G Motherboard (Intel HM77 Chipset)
      Intel HD Graphics 3000
       
      More Detailed Specs ---> https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-GXUa1I8xyDZU1SdklDSlhER2c
       
      So far , I've attempted to install iAtkos ML2 and ML3U via USB and so far both have worked up until the first sighting of the apple logo then the laptop restarted. In both cases , I was using a separate USB with chameleon bootloader on but in the instance where I tried to use the onboard bootloader on ML3U , I hit enter and the screen simply remained black.
       
      Any help would be much appreciated
       
      Thank you for your time.

      Hey all,
       I built my first Hackintosh back in 2012 and its been runner amazing. Thank you again for the awesome guides and forums that made it all possible. I have however hit the end of this builds software limits. I am still running 10.8.2 mountain lion on the machine. I would like to update to Sierra and want to make sure I am clear on the procedures. Now that it seems like everything is could based and no longer get physical versions of OS.
      currently i am backing up the system using and external drive and "carbon copy cloner" as shown here: http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/06/backup-your-hackintosh-with-carbon-copy.html
       
      My question is should i follow the set via the App store updates, Wipe the system and start over or is there a better way to achieve running Sierra on my machine?
       
      Here are my build specs:
      Processor name: Intel Core i7
      Processor Speed: 3.50 GHZ
      # of cores: 4
      memory: 32gb
      Boot rom version: insanelymac.com
      Graphics Card: Nivda GeForce GTX 670
      System Version: OSX 10.8.2 (12c60)
      i have also attached screen shots of the spec to further help:
       
      Thank you for taking the time to help me out with my build. look forward to getting this bad boy updated.

      While most of the VMWare guest hardware is virtualized, the guest VM CPU reflects the same CPU features the physical host CPU has.
      This guide details the additional work that is needed to run OS X 10.8-10.12 with an AMD CPU under VMWare.
       
      If your AMD CPU supports SSE3 and SSSE3 (and SSE4.1 for OS X 10.12):
      The installation should be pretty simple:
      1. Install VMWare Workstation 8.0.6 / 9.0.4 / 10.0.4 / Player 6.0.4.
      2. Run VMWare Unlocker 1.3.0.
      3. Prepare an installation ISO from the untouched 10.8 (Mountain Lion) DMG using dmg2img.
      4. Create a new VM (select "Mac OS X 10.8" as the guest operating system).
      5. Set your 'number of cores per processor' to 1 (the number of processors can be set to more than one).
      6. A. For OS X 10.8-10.11:
      Open the .vmx file of the virtual machine and add the following lines:
      cpuid.0.eax="0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:1011" cpuid.0.ebx="0111:0101:0110:1110:0110:0101:0100:0111" cpuid.0.ecx="0110:1100:0110:0101:0111:0100:0110:1110" cpuid.0.edx="0100:1001:0110:0101:0110:1110:0110:1001" cpuid.1.eax="0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0110:1111:0001" cpuid.1.ebx="0000:0010:0000:0001:0000:1000:0000:0000" cpuid.1.ecx="1000:0010:1001:1000:0010:0010:0000:0011" cpuid.1.edx="0000:1111:1010:1011:1111:1011:1111:1111" (this will identify the guest CPU as an Intel Core 2 Merom, and will help you avoid the 'The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine.' error)
       
      6. B. For OS X 10.12 Sierra:
      cpuid.0.eax="0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:1011" cpuid.0.ebx="0111:0101:0110:1110:0110:0101:0100:0111" cpuid.0.ecx="0110:1100:0110:0101:0111:0100:0110:1110" cpuid.0.edx="0100:1001:0110:0101:0110:1110:0110:1001" cpuid.1.eax="0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:0111:0001" cpuid.1.ebx="0000:0010:0000:0001:0000:1000:0000:0000" cpuid.1.ecx="1000:0010:1001:1000:0010:0010:0000:0011" cpuid.1.edx="0000:1111:1010:1011:1111:1011:1111:1111" (this will identify the guest CPU as an Intel Core 2 Penryn which supports SSE4.1)
       
      7. If your Hardware compatibibility is set to Workstation 9.0 (virtualHW.version = "9") or 10, you must also add the following line:
      featureCompat.enable = "FALSE"

      8. You can now boot from the ISO and proceed with the installation.

      9. Even though I could complete the installation without a hitch with my A8-5600K, a few applications consistently crashed (e.g. Grapher), this was resolved by replacing the kernel with a modified kernel that emulates all missing SSE3 / SSSE3 instructions (see below).


      If your AMD CPU does not support SSSE3:
      You need to replace the kernel with one that has SSSE3 emulation (see below),
      the easiest way to do it is to use another computer that has SSSE3 to create the virtual disk and replace the kernel.
      1. After you have a working OS X machine, update to 10.8.5, make a copy of the virtual disk and attach it to the same VM.

      2. Change the os settings to show hidden files (see here), and delete the hidden 'mach_kernel' from the root folder of the attached disk.
      (alternatively, use the terminal to perform this, e.g. 'sudo chflags nohidden mach_kernel' or 'sudo rm mach_kernel')

      3. Put the modified kernel (see below) instead of the one you just deleted (use the same file name).

      4. Delete the old kernel cache by deleting the content of the '/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/' directory.

      5. Optionally: hide back the kernel (with 'sudo chflags hidden mach_kernel').

      6. Create a new VM, update the .vmx files to include the 8 cpuid.* lines from above.

      7. You can now use the attached disk to boot OS X 10.8.5 from a VM hosted with an older AMD CPU that does not support SSSE3.

      Tested With A8-5600K, A8-3850 and VMWare Workstation 8.0.6 / 9.0.4 / 10.0.4 / Player 6.0.4

      Modified Kernel:
      For your convenience, I have created a modified 10.8.5 kernel (a.k.a. xnu-2050.48.11) specifically to be used with VMWare, and attached it to this post.
      The only modification to this kernel is that it includes OpEmu3, the SSE3 and SSSE3 emulator created by Sinetek and AnV (thanks guys!).
      This emulator is only used when necessary (i.e. if your CPU support a specific instruction, the emulator will not be used to execute it).
      The source code to OpEmu3 is available here and my adaptaion to 10.8.5 is available here.
