I'm new to the hackintosh world. I realized recently that I had built a system which could take advantage of hackintosh. Well I jumped on Niresh's Lion OS X and installed it. I have video working, audio working, and pretty much everything else.
However, the issue is that the system is running 32-bit version of the OS, which uses only 4GB of ram even though it shows that the other 3 slots also have 4GB in each.
I tired using Kernel Startup Mode Selector to load 64-bit but only the kernel boot mode is 64-bit. The EFI and Kernel show up as 32-bit.
I need help to upgrade/change this to 64-bit so I can take full advantage of the ram.
Also, I did not use any of the extensions/kexts provided on Niresh's drive because they kept causing kernel panic which would show "computer must be restarted" message every time I tried to boot. After installing 3 times, I finally avoided using his kexts which made my system stable and run normally without any problems. (As a result, I haven't installed Chameleon installer either. and did not follow the directions to setup the .plist in extras folder either).
Any help is greatly appreciated! I'd prefer not to reinstall everything because its a pain in the butt to make niresh's DVD load up (takes forever) and so is the installation (takes FOREVER!).
EDIT: Video/graphics were good from beginning (Radeon HD 4870 512MB). I have used a VooDooHDA887.kext for audio, Lnx2mac for network, Kext Helper, Kext Wizard, and OSX86Tools to install things and using disc utility to reset permissions, etc.
EDIT: Also I didn't know that initial installation should be with only 1x4GB stick in the system. I installed the OS with all four sticks Niresh's instructions were terrible lol and I am usually very good at following instructions.
EDIT3: I need help with inverse (inversing) the scroll on my MX400 I can't get used to apple's way of scrolling!
EDIT4: A helpful person on another forum said to uncheck the box on top of the mouse settings menu! Now the scroll is fixed but still need help with the rest!
