Gigabyte GA EX-58 UD5 Fusion Drive Booter

This small USB-Booter is made for the good old Gigabyte GA EX-58 UD5 motherboard with NVIDA Graphics, running Mountain Lion from a Mac Fusion Drive (http://www.macworld.com/article/2014011/how-to-make-your-own-fusion-drive.html).

I have not changed anything from the original System, all special kexts are put to the Extentions Folder, including some kexts for ATI-Cards, on the thumb drive.

Take any USB-Drive and partion it to HFS+/GUID/Mac OS Extended. Copy (repartion) the Gigabyte-Image with Disc Utility and than run the latest Chameleon (v2.2svn r2232) about it with Chameleon Standart & Option/Audio & /Basics/EthernetBuiltIn=Yes & /Video/GraphicsEnabler=Yes. Set the USB-Drive as first drive on BIOS.

If you want to boot from Fusion Drive you only have to write the 3rd partion as Start on the org.chameleon.Boot.plist (like: Default Partitionhd(1,3)). That's all!!

It runs with 10.6 or 10.7, too. But Fusion Drive is only running at 10.8.2 and later.

I have not seen it is so simple to start my Hackintosh from Fusion Drive. You only have to write a 3, not the normal 2..
