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.

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?
