Mountain Lion on ESXi + HP ProLiant Microserver N36L (AMD)

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm Attempting to install ML (retail) in to a VM on ESXi vSphere 5.1 // HP Proliant Microserver N36L (AMD) but I'm having a mouse input issue.

 

Followed the following guide, but I used the AMD kernel from the development thread:

http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/

 

As per the guide I used my retail ML dmg to restore to USB, installed chameleon, extracted the packages from basesystem, AMD_kernel from the AMD dev thread, FakeSMC r615 and NullCPUPowerManagement kexts. I went with iMac 10,1 for the SMBios.

 

To run the install I extracted the USB to a dmg and uploaded it to a datastore then connected the cd drive to the dmg. VM is set for OS X 10.7 (highest it goes to, but apparently this works). I have also unlocked ESXi to run OS X on non-apple hardware (I have previously got OS X SL 10.6 running using the legacy kernel).

 

My issue was the installer loads to the language selection menu, but with no mouse and keyboard support so I can't get any further.

 

I have used USB Bus fix, Graphics enabler, Force 64bit, Ethernet Built in and cpus=1. (didn't work).

 

I then started adding in kexts from my SL install with which I got a stable 10.60 install, (I did find that any tweaks on that previous system did cause it to loose mouse/keyboard input through the console and over vnc, so it seems to be pretty fussy):

 

AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext

ApplePS2Controller.kext

IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext

IOATAFamily.kext

IONetworkingFamily.kext

NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

TotallyFixStillWaiting.kext

fakesmc.kext

 

I then got keyboard, but no mouse input - any ideas how to get this working? Kind of important as I need to use disk utility to format the disk before install!

 

Lastly I then tried the following as a latch ditch effort:

 

AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext

AHCIPortInjector.kext

AppleAHCIPort.kext

 

But with no success.

 

Any insight on what to try next?

Soo… anyone got any hints for getting the mouse to work in the console? Totally out of ideas now.

Ok - so I installed the kexts in crab hunter's ps2.zip from this thread and the install is now proceeding...

Well, it kept hanging in the end and I gave up. I'm no expert at this so perhaps someone else can have a go. I thought it might have happened by now given the success that people are having on the amd development forum for ML.

      Hello,
       
      My desktop Hackintosh is running macOS Mojave 10.14.2 with two dedicated GPUs installed: NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti, AMD Radeon HD 7970.
       
      The AMD GPU is used primarily under macOS and the NVIDIA one under Windows.
       
      macOS boots without issues as long as there are no displays connected to the NVIDIA GPU. If a display is connected then the display connected to the AMD GPU will become blank. The system can be accessed using Screen Sharing/VNC.
       
      There are no problems if I swap PCI-e slots for the GPUs so that the AMD GPU is in the first slot (primary GPU), but I prefer not to do this.
       
      I have tried to remove the whole PCI (bridge) device in the DSDT file and all the lines that refer to it. The PCI entries in ioreg and System Information are gone but System Information still shows an NVIDIA GPU under Graphics/Display.
       
      Many of the suggestions I have found in guides and forum posts do not seem to apply here. My problem with some of the guides and answers is that they give the solution without explaining how anything works, or they tell you what to do without explaining the reasons behind it.
       
      What else can I do? Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
       
      I have attached some files that may help you help me.
       
      DSDT_BIOS_3101.zip contains the original ACPI (*.aml) files without any patches.
      Send me Steffens-iMac.zip is a file produced by RunMe.app, and do contain simple patches to rename some devices.
      DSDT.dsl.patch is a diff of the original DSDT.dsl file and the one with the PCI devices removed (commented out).
       
      Motherboard: ASUS Rampage V Extreme (X99), BIOS version 3101 (macOS does not boot with anything newer).
      Clover version: 4813.
