my 2¢ :)
first, thank you so much to theconnactic, Andy Vandjick & everyone else that bravely try to get osx working on amd. i have not been keeping up much with mountain lion + amd since i have a intel build but after finding this nice post i gave it a shot and voilà a successful ML install on and old amd nforce to an even older ide drive. so heres what i did. i have a working snow leopard so i used myHack, the InstallESD.dmg from ML 10.8.4, the ML amd kernel (posted here by AnV, im using the one on the 1st page) & AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext (cause i installed it to IDE drive) [drumroll] yay! so now i have a bootable ML 10.8.4, cause i have nvidia gpu i have to disable the GeforceGA.plugin and GeforceGLDriver.bundle, ethernet works so i updated the software but i cannot update to 10.8.5 cause it requires reboot and if i try that or to power off the screen goes black and theres a string of "64 bit opemu wrong instruction" ...whats the fix for that?(if any) i have never seen this before. anyway thanks again to all, i like messin with this stuff :) there a list of what works and does not on my dinosaur

Graphics : nVidia GPU, disabled GeforceGA.plugin and GeforceGLDriver.bundle

Chipset   : fixed with AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext
Ethernet : fixed with nForceLAN.kext 0.64.0 (0.64.5 & 0.64.6 would not stay connected)
Sound    : fixed with AppleAC97Audio.kext
Wifi        : no card currently installed

 

boot flags: npci=0x3000

 

AMD comp:
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64X2 4400+ Toledo
4GB Patriot DDR 400 (PC 3200)

Here are my working Builds.

 

CPU: AMD FX 8350 @ 4.0Ghz

Motherboard: Asus CrossHair V Formula-Z

SB/NB: SB:950 & NB:990FX

RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600Mhz

SATA: Tested with 6 HDDs, 60Gb SSD windows 7, 200GB SL, Lion & ML , & others . Blu-Ray drive worked too.

IDE: No.

USB 2.0: All ports work.

USB 3.0: Unknown.

Firewire: Disabled always

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 5970, works after editing 2 kexts, GraphicsEnabler. QE/CI

LAN: Intel 82583V Gigabit

Sound: ALC899 -> no support, but latest VoodooHDA 2.8.0 works on all SL, Lion & ML.

PS2: Not used.

 

Bootloader: Chameleon 2.1 R2069

 

Snow Leopard: Installed 10.6 from Nawcom Modcd and then updated to 10.6.8 through software update. After install everything worked correctly with appropriate kexts. Using AnV legacy 10.6.8 V8 R2 kernel in 64-bit UserLand.

 

Lion: Works in 32-bit with theconnactics 10.7.5 kernel, some fixes were needed (IOPCIFamily.kext etc.) basic stuff. Dodgy Graphics will sometimes not work.

 

Mountain Lion: Booted Installer, manually created install image and replaced AppleACPIPlatform.kext, IOPCIFamily.kext & IOUSBFamily.kext from acpirollback package by andy. No graphics QE/CI, still working on it. Sinetek "AMD Test Kernel 1" will let me install Mountain Lion and create user. But on next boot only shows a light grey screen that is slowly flashing dim then bright.

I have the same CPU but I get no luck doing what you've said :( my chipset is the AMD 970 if that helps.

OS 10.6.8 Snow Leopard AMD Working build on Dell Studio XPS 7100

Processor:
AMD Phenom II x6 1075t 3.0 Ghz;

Motherboard:
Dell Studio XPS 7100 Motherboard:
 -On Board Audio ALC887/888b does not work, had to buy a USB Audio Adapter for $9 to get 2channel sound.  On Board microphone works with VoodooHDA.kext installed.  (I now have two audio devices.)
 -On-board LAN does not work
 -All USB Ports work without issue

Graphics:
ATI Radeon HD 5450 working when updated to 10.6.8 and then editing the ATI5000.kext plist to include 68f91002 hardware id.

Wifi Card: (PCI-e) works out of box (I think its a broadlcom wifi card,

12GB Ram

1TB Sata Hard drive

Install Method:
Used nawcom boot CD which gave me a compatible kernel (legacy_kernel) and chameleon bootloader necessary to get to the installation screen on my AMD system.  Installed with bootflags -v and -force64 as required by my processor.  After installation, updated to 10.6.8 and applied the ATI5000.Kext.plist edit mentioned above to get working graphics card.  Note:  Currently using arch=i386 maxmem=4096 busratio=19 and -force64 as bootflags.


P.S.  Thanks to Duran Keeley and Spaak and the insanelymac community for the good input and putting up with my dumba#@.  You guys rule.

 

*Mavericks 10.9 working build nearly complete!  New kernel in downloads section works great!  Thanks and congrats to all involved.  Awesome work.

Install the SystemInfo tool see here---> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/219584-system-info-an-app-to-get-hardware-and-kexts-info/  and the current java version. then  run the tool, create an imaging your installed hardware with the systemInfo tool and upload it up here as an image, then we can adapt your Ethernet driver.

or read the information and look the video, then you will certainly modify the Ethernet driver in a few minutes, good luck

This is my second 'Working Build' post, as my previous one didn't seem to work for me.

This was because I installed Mac, then got rid of it, installed Ubuntu, then got rid of it, then wanted to install Mac. This created trouble with Chameleon (so I think), maybe Grub had something to do with the trouble I was getting. My Mac would install fine, but when booting it would instantly restart at 'Starting Darwin x86', no matter the flags nor kernel. 

I basically bombed my boot record (Windows 8 on a separate hard disk thankfully). Fully erased it, wrote over it, destroyed it. Then rebuilt it using Windows 8 and bam Mac worked like a beauty. Here is my build:

 

CPU: AMD Athlon X2 @ 3.3Ghz

Motherboard: Biostar A780L (probably the most unsupported motherboard ever)
RAM: 4GB DDR2 1333Mhz
SATA: 2 X 160GB 
GPU: ATI Radeon HD5770 (full QE/CI)

LAN: Realtek 8102EL with RTG Mac
WiFi: TRENDnet TEW 684-UB with the drivers that came with the disk

Sound: ALC889 with VoodooHDA 2.8.4

 

Bootloader: Chameleon 2.2 
Kernel:  Bronzovka v4

Flags: USBLegacyOff=Yes npci=0x2000 (arch=i386 sometimes, but both 32 and 64bit work)

I installed using iAtkos. It took me about 2 days worth of time to finally get a bootable media device working. Expanding the DMG to my USB didn't work, and all the other methods didn't, and I didn't have a Mac machine available to use. I also have the worst internet in the world (70kb/s downstream), so I could not stand to wait to download Hazard's Snow Leopard for a virtual machine.

I finally wrote it to a DVD by expanding the image, packing in some of my own things (kernel and such), compressing it, and then using PowerISO to burn it to a disk. I used TransMac to do the DMG work. Everything booted up perfectly.

Feel free to ask my for any help, if need be (I have had run in with so many errors its ridiculous). Thank to everyone who helped me! :D

Notes:  

 

No more graphics corruption thanks to the system.kext patches by Sinetek!!!  The only remaining issues I have are some pink icons in Launchpad, and some corruption around icon labels on the desktop.  Nothing major, perfectly tolerable for me. 

 

One thing I did have to do as kind of a workaround after installing the older patched USB kexts from 10.6, was install official kexts for my M-Audio FastTrack from the website.  It was previously detected OOB with Mavericks, but it stopped working when I installed the old USB kexts, so installing the official kexts from M-Audio fixed that issue for me.  Im assuming this might be an issue for other USB audio interfaces as well.  Just a heads up if you use these kexts.  

 

Also, I have working iCloud services with sync enabled (no iMessage or FaceTime though) via a fix by theconnatic involving merging an iCloud enabled account from an Intel Hackintosh (or real Mac) to the AMD machine using Migration Assistant.  Many, many thanks to everyone involved with getting my Mavericks installation up and running!   

 

***

 

EDIT:  I've been getting a lot of private messages asking me how I got iCloud working, so I figured I'd link theconnatic's original post about it:

CPU - AMD Athlon X2
Motherboard - Biostar A780L
GPU - ATI HD5770 1GB
Kernel - Andy's RC6 Kernel
RAM - 4Gb DDR2
Hard Drive - 2 X 160GB SATA
USB Ports - 4 at the back and 2 in front (all work)
LAN  - Realtek RTL8168 using RTGMac 

Wifi - Trendnet TEW 648-UB (works using Snow Leopard drivers from the disc)
Audio - Realtek ALC662 - used Voodoo HDA 2.8.4
Sleep - working OOB
 

Lion works flawlessly, used Bronzvokas Lion 10.7.5 kernel and iAtkos L2 to install.

Mavericks also works amazingly.

 

Created a USB installer using Insanelymac's Pandoras Box (thank you!). Booted using Andy's kernel, with the flags "USBLegacyOff=yes npci=0x2000 -v". Installed fine and then booted fine too. First boot was EXTREMELY slow, left my machine on over night to allow Spotlight to index everything. Then replaced the System.kext with Andy's one, and everything worked fine. Graphics works 100%, and everything is very smooth.

 

Bootloader is Chameleon, using the flags "-v USBLegacyOff=Yes npci=0x2000"

 

iCloud / AppStore etc. does not work unfortunately. (no biggy though).
