Mountain Lion on AMD

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to install Mountain Lion on this machine:

AMD Sempron 145 2.8 GHz Single Core Processor


MSI 760GM-P23 (FX)

Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6450 1 GB DDR3 PCI-E

450W PSU

250 GB HDD


*I know, it's amazing*



The progress:

Sound worked OOB (onchip)

Snow Leopard 10.6.3 running with legacy_kernel through ModCD




So the problems:

No QE/CI, rocking on 1024x768 through HDMI but I think this will get fixed when I get 10.8

No ethernet, which i think will come when I actually get 10.8 to work (Realtek RTL 8167)

When starting a sort of installed version of Mountain Lion it just restarts after the bootloader, probably cause of the kernel.





I'm open to try anything so give me suggestions.

Before starting the instalation of SL on my machine I wanted to be sure that I can use QE/CI on ML and this video gave me hope

Well I don't know if that will make any difference.. but I got AMD Radeon HD 3000 onchip...

Also I don't know what is my best option. To run Lion on i386 or to run SL.

Actually am I able to run this graphics card with that said with QE/CI anyway?



EDIT: Following your guide, do I need NullCPUPowerManagement.kext?
