[Successful] Asus A43Sj Laptop (10.8.5)
4 4

Question

Hello, nice to meet you all.

Today i'll be giving you an interesting news about Mountain Lion 10.8.5 which suits perfectly with ASUS A43SJ, and i would recommend you this laptop as a hackintosh laptop. Why? Well, i used Niresh distro's since Lion 10.7.3 and all of them works flawlessly.

 

Okay, let's get started !

Here's the screenshot of my machine specs :

Here's the desktop view, which works flawlessly ( The Battery, Wi-fi, Disk Drive, etc )

and the iCloud & iMessages are also work like shit ( sorry, i'm so happy for it since epic failures and issues on 10.8.2 LOL )

post-3013-0-48486600-1387940860_thumb.jp

 

Alright. So, how to reach this paradise of Mountain Lion 10.8.5 with less issues during the first install ( this is my very first install and it succeeded directly ) ?.

1. Download Mountain Lion 10.8.5 ( ISO version ) from Niresh 

2. Make sure you download it properly and finished in the same amount of the size ( if it's 4,32 GB, it must be finish in 4,32 GB ). Why? well sometimes error occurs from this tiny mistake :)

3. Burn it to a disc. ( mine was DVD-RW ) and burn it using IMGBURN by the speed of 8x ( make it solid )

ATTENTION :

When i finished burning the iso, it says to close the disc tray and it says ERROR when validating the iso. Don't panicked yourself, just eject it and make sure you have BACKUP THE ENTIRE DATA and DON'T REGRET ANY LOSING FILES 

 

4. Boot up to your BIOS to change your default BIOS from IDE to AHCI mode !.

5. Restart

6. Normal boot and select the Niresh Mountain Lion 10.8.5 disc, then type -v ( verbose mode ) and enter

7. Take some times to load dozens of white texts, make sure you still heard your disc circling sound, if it's stop and you feel stuck for about 10 - 15 minutes by the white texts, RESTART YOUR LAPTOP. But then if you keep finding yourself with the error, RE-BURN YOUR MOUNTAIN LION.iso WITH ANOTHER DVD DISC, but if the problems keep appear, YOU DOWNLOAD THE FILE UN-PROPERLY. So, don't get to panic 'cause i serve you the other reasons and options.

8. Mountain Lion language selection appears ( i choose English )

9. In the next installation window, you'll see an active taskbar on the top of your screen, choose UTILITIES and click on the DISK UTILITY selections.

10. PARTITION your main or test-drive ( test-drive was meant for them who still concern about the installation success rate on your laptop, if you do this, don't use the main drive !!! ) to some amount of partitions ( i picked 2 PARTITIONS, FOR THE MAIN DRIVE AND DATABASE ) then change the type to MAC OS JOURNALED ( you can even rename your file ).

11. CLICK APPLY and it'll load for some minutes. If it appears to be an error, try the partition again, but if it keeps the same, then restart your laptop to begin from the start. DON'T GET TOO HURRIED, BE PATIENT, THIS IS NOT A THEME, THIS IS A HACKINTOSH 

 

12. close the Disk Utility window and click next to begin the installation

13. You will have to choose the drive for your main installation area. But...WAIT UP! YOU NEED TO CLICK COSTUMIZE IN THE BOTTOM-LEFT CORNER OF THE BOX !

 

14. This is when people get crazed because they don't pay attention to what things they should choose. And for this tutorial, this is for Asus A43SJ but if it appears to be success with the other laptops, then it's great.

DON'T TICK GRAPHICS ENABLER, SINCE NVIDIA GT520M was FULLY SUPPORTED !

DON'T TICK THE TRIM ENABLER FOR SSD, SINCE OUR DRIVE WASN'T SSD !

For the rest, leave it be ! don't try to change 'em if you don't know how it works !

 

15. Installation process begins ! it takes 20 minutes or so.

16. After finishing the installation, reboot your system and CHOOSE THE DRIVE WHICH YOU HAVE RENAME IT AS THE MAIN DRIVE FOR MOUNTAIN LION INSTALLATION. DON'T CHOOSE THE DISK NAME ANYMORE !

17. Type -x to enter the Safe Boot mode

 

18. Let the notifications that told you 'repairing, building caches or so' works ! don't restart your system untill they said 'YOUR HACKINTOSH IS FULLY OPTIMIZED'.

19. While waiting them, you can install several kexts that i upload on this link ( and also for some DSDT and SSDT too ! )

 

KEXT 1 : http://www28.zippyshare.com/v/79518364/file.html

KEXT 2 : http://www28.zippyshare.com/v/19147354/file.html

 

IT'S WORKING FOR 10.8.5 !

 

Description of the file

Kext 1 : Kexts that i put into a single folder, you'll need to install all of them by using KEXT UTILITY. Where can i get the Kext Utility?. It's automatically installed on the Mountain Lion 10.8.5 :)

Kext 2 : Kexts that contains SSDT, DSDT, 'Extra' folder customization and some other kexts that need to be installed such as Wi-Fi, sound, etc.

 

20. Restart your hackintosh after installing the kexts. 

WELCOME TO THE PARADISE ^_^

YOU'VE FINALLY MADE IT !

HAPPY HACKINTOSHING !

 

P/S :

1. If your Wi-Fi cannot connected even you've installed the kexts.

Here's what you have to do ( i got frustated but i tricked them by using multibeast and it works like hell yo ~ )

1. Download Multibeast from Tonymacx86

Wait, i don't have any internet connection !. Well think smart by using the other laptops or a tablet, then send it to your laptops and install as usual.

2. Choose the network driver and select this one :

post-3013-0-10190600-1387942697_thumb.pn

3. There will appear a installer window. Just install it as normally

4. Restart

 

5. Still not working? Good !

Yeah, it won't work ! it won't work !. LOL don't panic, now you go to SLE ( System Library Extensions ) and delete the REALTEK RTL81XXX kexts. Then, you restart your system and GO TO SYSTEM PREFERENCE - NETWORK - TURN ON WIFI - CHOOSE YOUR NETWORK AND INSERT THE PASSWORD IF IT'S NEEDED.

 

Your Wi-Fi issue saved !

What else? nothing, it all works flawlessly.

^_^

 

Source : 15 times failures in installing 10.7.3 , 8 times failures in installing 10.8.2 , EPIC SUCCEED in installing 10.8.5

Experience is the best teacher, indeed !

 

If you wanna ask, just post to my Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/ddopha?ref=tn_tnmn

Mail me : cordovasmart@gmail.com

 

Hope it works, i'll be testing the Maverick 10.9 pretty soon !

It would be better to open a new thread, so just everybody can help you. But, it's safe to upgrade to Niresh's Mavericks.

Okay how long did you stuck at the apple white logo? If it stucks for some long time, you need to follow the tutorial from the beginning. It's normal for being confused by the problems, try it again.Honestly, i ever met several failures but believe that you'll made it through some hard efforts :)
