help me with my hackintosh

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

hi, my machine is like this:


AMD Athon II 4600+

MA78GM-S2H rev1.1

ALC889a sound card integrated

TP-LINK TL-WN550G (atheros 5005g/5212)

XFX 6450 1G graphic card


I used Nawcom's modcd 0.3.2 (legacy_kernel selected) to start, installed retail DVD 10.6.3, and then upgraded to 10.6.8

graphic card is a native,

wireless card can't be detected, though it worked very well as an air extreme from 10.6.3 to 10.6.7 using AtherosFix.kext, i am planing to buy a 9280 pci to replace it, anyway, but any good advises are still welcome;)

the really pain in the ass is that integrated 889a sound card, never got it work!!!!

can somebody help me create a fake AppleHDA.kext, plz? or at least tell me how to? i have totally no idea how to do it:(


P.S. right after i installed snow leopard, OSX run well, very smooth, but not long after that, it's not smooth anymore, and i checked system monitor only one core is "working hard", the other core is "quite lazy". is this the reason my hackintosh doesn't run smoothly? any solutions?


PLEASE HELP, I am stuck where i am for over one week, really on the edge of going nuts!
