Realtek ALC269 Audio

Atheros or Broadcam Bluetooth (Most device works , some of them not)

What do you need:

Basically it is better to already have a working version of MacOS installed on your HackinTosh. It is always possible to achieve all steps of this GUIDE with an external MacOS system, but it will be more difficult. Also, I recommend you to have the following stuffs:

1 x USB/SD card of 8GB minimum.
1 x Original Mountain Lion Install DVD (InstallESD.dmg, md5 checksum = 8b4869920cd740414fe6b7e3f0b1be3e).
8GB of available space minimum to install Mountain Lion.
1 x Human Brain.
30 minutes up to 3 hours spare time.

STEP 1 – Creating USB/SD Mountain Lion Installation Drive

STEP 1 – Creating USB/SD Mountain Lion Installation Drive:

For this part, you need to force Finder to show all hidden files link


Right Click “Install OS X Mountain Lion?? -> Show Package Contents.
Contents -> Shared Support -> InstallESD.dmg.
Open InstallESD.dmg (this will popup the “Mac OS X Install ESD?? volume).
In ??Mac OS X Install ESD?? volume open BaseSystem.dmg (this will popup the “Mac OS X Base System?? volume).
Open the Disk Utility application.

Now we will create our USB/SD Mountain Lion installation DVD volume.

Partition your USB/SD device to match two partition, GUID Partition Scheme, both must be Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

other steps , you can watch this video fully usb installations:

*video*How to create your own bootable thumb drive 10 8 Mountain Lion pc & laptop - YouTube

Thanks chris smile.png watch this video while 10 minutes (10:00) and do it your usb drive this tutorial.
after 10 minutes on video , we don't need any steps.


I added here my Extra files for you. You must integrate this files your usb drive root.

Also I added my Drivers (kext files) here for you , after installation you need this files.

You will see my Extra files in Attachments , You can download here.


İf you don't have any mac osx computer for this installation steps ,
you have to use mac osx installed virtual machine and you can prepare your usb drive.

download Mac and install with vmware player : VMware Workstation: Run Multiple OS, Linux, Windows 8 & More

You can prepare your bootable usb drive with this files.

Ok if you have a bootable usb drive 10.8.0 retail mac osx files added. We are ready for installation.

1- install with , -v and finish installation.
2- When you finish installation you must boot with -x -v command. Because we have to delete some kext files like graphics kext.

When you open safe mode with (-x -v) command , you must delete this files ;

here;

Roots ( Mac osX installed drive) ---> System ---> Library --->Extensions come here and delete below files ;

Delete all graphics kexts (+ plugin and bundles) :

Thanks for new files!

I have a question... when I create the Lion install Disk using a USB drive I can reboot and then start installation because Chameleon will appear and will let me boot the OS from USB, am I right?

I just don't understand how to remove graphics kexts... we have to do it in a second PC with OSX or we can do it in Verbose Mode with some commands AFTER installation from USB (like the guide seems to say)?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your help :)

Now I have a strange problem... USB drive worked good and 10.8 is installed now! I booted with -v -x and I reached the desktop, but it's divided in 4 parts!

I had no issues and OS booted without deleting kexts... only graphic card is shown incorrectly: it is seen as "Unknown" but has full hardware acceleration. OSX says graphic card has 384mb of video memory.

I'm reinstalling OSX due to a failed kext injection... I'll post a screen of my "puzzle" monitor.

Hope you can help me!

Thanks for everything ;)
