My Mountain Lion Success Story

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I successfully installed Max OS X Mountain Lion on my PC. I got various problems while installing it. I am listing out the problems and solutions I found for it. May be it will help someone.

 

First I created bootable Mountain Lion disk by restoring BaseSystem.dmg and copying Packages from root folder to /System/Installation. This was the easiest way to create bootable install disk which worked perfectly for me.

 

Now here are the problems I faced while installation and solutions which worked for me.

 

Problem: Computer restarts at apple logo.

Solution: Install latest chameleon boot loader to the partition and try again.

 

Problem: Black screen and computer goes to sleep after some time.

Solution: Problem with your graphics card. Copy appropriate graphics kext to Extra folder, rebuild Extensions.mkext and try again.

 

Problem: "Cant install Mountain Lion on this computer" Error.

Solution: Build a proper SMBIOS.plist using latest models of Apple products and put it in Extra folder.

 

Finally I was succeeded in installing Mountain Lion.

  • PS2 keyboard and mouse: Works (ApplePS2Controller.kext).
  • Sound: Works (VoodooHDA.kext).
  • Graphics Card: Works (NvInject.kext).

Hi MacNutty,

 

Could you share the configuration on your hack?

 

1. What's your NVidia card?

2. Where did you find the right version of NVinject?

3. Do you need to modify NVDXXXX.kexts to enable QE/CI?

 

My old 7900GS is not supported by the 10.8.2 stock GeForceXXXX.kexts anymore. Need to find a new card for both my 10.7.3 and 10.8.2.

 

Thanks!

My hack config is given in my signature. I have Geforce 9400 GT which works with latest version of NvInject.kext. I did not modify any kext, it worked out of the box.

    • Baio77 per me ciò che hai scritto è abbastanza "arabo" non ho capito nulla... comunque mi sono rivolto prevalentemente a questo forum per sistemare delle cose che non funzionavano e molto gentilmente Gengik me le ha sistemate, facendo lui però... io ho solo capito che l'impostazione per la grafica non va messa perché crea fastidiosi sfarfallii all'interno delle applicazioni nonché al finder nella parte superiore a sinistra (se leggi i post precedenti trovi le descrizioni)... stop sono riuscito a risolvere solo questa cosa da me leggendo anche in altri forum  proverò il tuo config.plist pulito e farò sapere. Grazie dell'aiuto
