  1. Hello, I have a Gateway NE56R10u and I have a problem with Iatkos Mountain Lion booting. it will not go past apple logo with spinning wheel, but I can hear voiceover instructions after a few minutes. My pc specs are: Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz dual-core cpu Intel integrated HD graphics 4 Gb of ram 320 GB WD HDD. Running Windows 7,8.1 and mountain lion. I used easyBCD to make it work. Snow leopard worked fine when I used it. Refer to picture it never moves from there when done. There is disk activity at random times. I have tried -x and DSDT=null and cpus=1 someone please help.
  2. Hi: Guide for triple-booting Gateway M685-E with OSX 10.7.5, Win7 Ultimate (x32), and Vector Linux Std Gold (x32). Begin Guide: *********** *********** ** NOTE: the Gateway M685-E is a 32-bit machine and will not work with Mountain Lion 10.8+ (requires 64bit). 10.7.x will probably be the best I'll get. ** NOTE: had a situation when trying to install linux where I tried installing grub bootloader as MBR and it hosed my GPT information. Windows would no long boot and when trying to reinstall from DVD, would give me an error regarding the GPT partition. If this happens, use OSX DiskUtility to do a "repair" on the drive. After doing the repair on the drive from OSX, windows should let setup reinstall to the partition. ** NOTE: A DSDT doesn't seem to be required. ** NOTE: NullCPUPowerManagement may be required initially by Snow Leopard but doesn't seem to be required for Lion. ** NOTE: Might be wise to keep the 10.7 Lion Installer partition for emergency booting (if need to use a terminal / command line for problems on main 10.7 install) --------------------- Install 10.6.3 --------------------- [1] Boot from iB{censored}. [2] Swap and boot the OSX 10.6.3 Retail DVD. [3] Set boot style to GUID and creation 6 partitions: > Mac (extended journaled (default)) [110 gig] > Mac (extended journaled (default)) [25 gig] (for backups + Lion installer partition) > Windows (FAT) [110 gig] > Linux(FAT) [67 gig] > Linux Swap / Transfer (FAT) [4 gig] > FAT Transfer Partition [4 gig] (for transfering between OS's) [4] Run install of 10.6.3 on OSX partition. ** NOTE: if screensaver kicks in, can't get visible screen back! Have to wait until install finishes and reboots automatically. [5] After installation, reboot with iB{censored} CD and boot from new installed OSX. [6] Disable regular and display sleep. Choose a screensaver instead. [7] Reboot and boot to OSX using iB{censored} (for safe measure to ensure everything is working). --------------------- Copy OSX Images, Bootloaders, {censored}, etc. --------------------- [1] Copy all files needed. --------------------- 10.6.8 Upgrade --------------------- [1] Set BIOS date back a few years (I used 05-07-2009). Required for update package to run without failing. [2] Copy "MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.8.pkg" file to desktop of OSX. [3] Run setup and update. Reboot using iB{censored} afterwards. Should be at 10.6.8. ** NOTE: if setup fails (shouldn't), try running {censored} UpdateHelper, reboot, and run combo update pacakge again. --------------------- Install MB{censored} Stuff (required for booting without iB{censored} and the Lion install partition requires these to boot) --------------------- [1] Open MB{censored} for (I used Lion version): [2] Select: FakeSMC [3] Select: PS/2 Mouse & Keyboard Drivers [4] Select: ElliottForceLegacyRTC (bios cmos reset issue) [5] Select: EvOreboot (fix shutdown / reboot stalls freezes) [6] Select: Optional: NullCPUPowerManagement (shouldn't be required) > NOTE: this may cause boot problems (randomly booting into system) - if so, try booting into the system without using this kext. [7] Select: System Definition: MacBook Pro 8,1 (required to for Lion Installer to recognize compatible system) (might work with other definitions) [8] Install --------------------- Update boot plist / DSDT --------------------- [1] Optional: Use DSDT Editor to extract and then compile the "dsdt.aml" file. Place in "/Extra". > NOTE: a DSDT may not be required. I mainly tried using a DSDT for boot problems (randomly working sometimes). Try without. [2] Use Chameleon Wizard to update the org.chameleon.Boot.plist file: > use "dsdt.aml" (only if using a DSDT mentioned above) > use "smbios.plist" > arch=i386 > GraphicsEnabler=yes > Restart Fix NOTE: originally I wasn't using a dsdt but I was having random boot problems so the dsdt seems to fix the problem. --------------------- Install Windows 7 --------------------- [1] Boot from Windows 7 x32 DVD, install to WINDOWS partition. ** NOTE: THe windows partition will need to be formated by the setup first (as NTFS). [2] Go all the way through installation until booting to desktop. ** NOTE: Windows install will always erase an existing bootloader (shouldn't be one yet anyway). [3] Install Windows activation as well just to make sure nothing breaks later. --------------------- Install {censored} Chimera Bootloader --------------------- NOTE: I could not get video to work with the latest Chameleon. Using {censored} Chimera works. --------------------- [1] Boot into OSX without iB{censored} CD (if something goes wrong, you could boot with iB{censored} CD). [2] Run MB{censored} for SL (3.10.1 used) - install Chimera bootloader (v1.7.0 r1394). [3] Create and configure "/Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist" to use "GraphicsEnabler=yes" and "arch=i386" as options in order to get fully working video. [4] Verify Windows partition still runs ok and is accessible. --------------------- ** IMPORTANT NOTES ** --------------------- > OSX 10.7+ cannot be booted with iB{censored} CD. > xMove: System files and extensions are copied to the 10.7 installer partition from the main 10.6.8 OSX installation. Make sure necessary kexts are installed before doing xMove. --------------------- 10.7 Upgrade --------------------- [1] Boot into OSX (shouldn't need iB{censored}). [2] Create installer partion (from OSX partition) of at least 8 gig on the mac. Any name. [3] Create empty folder in "/Applications" called "Install Mac OS X Lion.app". [4] Copy then mount 10.7 "InstallESD.dmg" (from DVD) [5] Mount "BaseSystem.dmg" from inside newly mounted lion image "Mac OS X Install ESD". ** NOTE: to see "BaseSystem.dmg" will need to show hidden files: console command: "defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE" kill finder (force restart/refresh): "killall Finder" [6] 2 images should be mounted: "Mac OS X Install ESD" and "Mac OS X Base System". [7] Copy / Run xMove (Lion) - use new installer partition. [8] Reboot and enter into the new Lion Installer partition. Install. Should finish / reboot automatically. NOTE: if screen goes blank - don't panic. Installer is still running. Just let it finish and the installer will reboot automatically. [9] After finishing, reboot into regular OSX partition. Should boot without problems. --------------------- 10.7.5 Upgrade --------------------- [1] Run / install 10.7.5 Combo Update --------------------- Vector Linux (Standard Gold 7) --------------------- ** NOTE: Could not install to GPT-partitioned drive with Vector Linux Light (7). Setup never would see Ext2 partitions. See: Vector Linux (Light 7) on GPT Drive (Multi-OS) Problem [RESOLVED] [1] Boot from setup CD [2] When setup asks for "partition drives" vs "use existing partitions", select "use existing partitions". [3] Select the partition using for Linux, mount to "/" and format as "ext2". [4] Do install. [5] When install is complete, do NOT install any bootloaders ("none" option). [6] Finish config - reboot on complete. [7] Must boot from Vector install CD to boot into system. At first boot prompt, run command "linux root=/dev/sda5" (sda5 being the new installed partition). Ignore read-only warning. [8] Go through VL configuration stuff. Reboot when finished. [9] Same as above, use VL CD to boot into system. [10] Install GRUB bootloader: > At user login screen for VL, jump to a terminal instance and log in as root. > Run grub install command: "grub-install --force /dev/sda5". For info on "--force": https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB2 > Run grub config generator: "grub-mkconfig > /boot/grub/grub.cfg" [11] Reboot. Grub should boot into linux and have a menu screen now that includes linux and windows (added by default). [12] Set swap drive in file: /etc/fstab add line under main partition "/dev/sda5": "/dev/sda6 swap swap defaults 0 0" --------------------- Check Windows Boot --------------------- [1] Check to ensure Windows will boot. If an error about the boot sector happens, open OSX partition and run DiskUtility and do a repair on the drive. --------------------- OSX Hardware Drivers --------------------- [1] Network: Atheros AR9285: > (see saved driver files on software drive) > Hackintosh AR9285/ AR5B195 / AR9002WB PCIe wireless/half size - Downloads - OSx86.net [2] Audio: VoodooHDA-v2.8.2.x32.x64.SL.Lion.zip [3] Battery: VoodooBattery for Lion: > Hackintosh voodoobattery Lion / Mountain Lion - Downloads - OSx86.net

  5. So recently i got my gateway nv78 to boot from mac osx 10.7 however it seems that i cant find any working kext or drivers for my wireless adapter (Intel 5100 agn) ..... and i cant get internet to work. I want to know what the best way to solve this problem is..... is there a download somewhere that i need and if so where? should i buy a wireless adapter that i can find kext for, ex broadcom 4311? or should i buy a usb wireless adapter ? (I would not preffer to have all my usb slots taken up but at this point i figured i just want to get internet working)
  6. Hi, I'm relatively new to Hackintosh, and I have installed 10.7.2 on my system but I'm finding the video is quite laggy (can't play quicktime mp4 in sync with audio, no graphics acceleration, etc.). I have 1900 by 1200 resolution working fine, but I think the performance of my system could be improved. I am using NvEnabler and the generic nVidia kext that came with my distro. Since I'm so new, I was hoping someone could direct me to the correct kext to install and get things working smoothly. I have found a couple alternatives by doing a simple Google Search: EFI strings for many videocards - Downloads - OSx86.net http://www.osx86.net/video-graphics/12375-nvidia-9800m-gs-lion.html Enabling Quartz Extreme for 9800m GTS - InsanelyMac Forum Cuda - universal driver NVidia - Downloads - OSx86.net I am also unfamiliar on how to get to the /libraries/system/kexts folder to see what I have installed. As I recall, that folder is hidden by default. How do I check what kexts are installed? Can someone point me to a thread/tutorial? Sorry for being such a noob I am running all this on a Gateway FX P-7805u. Thanks for any help.
  7. Hello everybody, I am new to this Hackintosh stuff and the only problem I have so far is my Trackpad Does not work. I am on Snow Leopard 10.6.2 (I cant go any higher than that) and I am using ModBin's kernel and MB{censored}. My keyboard works fine, just not the mouse. In the meantime, I use my Microsoft Mobile Mouse 5000. Thanks for the help!
