Acer Extensa 5220 Works !


Hi ! Not sure to putt it here but there is a question to the end.

I can proudly say , that with help of most of the information in here. 
I am now typing from an Acer Extensa 5220 running Niresh 10.8.2 
I was playing around with Hazard 10.6.2 , cause i figured it's an older laptop.
Then i came across an old dvd having this rom. just before i was through and to install win7 back on it. 

So ! what does work and how did i install it. 
installed it with intel X3100 graphics kexts and voodoo hda 2.8.3 sound kext And cmos reset fix. 

After the install it runs great. after installing MS office 2011 and google Chrome. it had a glitch with the video . but that was fixed with a boot flag GraphicsEnabler=No with the boot using multi beast. 

Now the only thing that irritates me is that battery indicator with an X .

Tried a few kexts. like rehabman and a few. but they don't seem to fix it. 
Anyway it works. 

Thanks !!

Little update; 

Voodoo battery status now works . 

It's a single core and has 2GB ram. So it aint super fast. 
The launch pad takes a while to launch and the desktop something is slow. 
Itunes is upgraded to v12. So now i can sync my iphone. Ms Office Works. 
Sound works but the jack plugs dont. the internal mic works to. Most everything for a homework computer works. 

Lion might have bin a tick faster. i might try that in the future but for it works. 

Thanks a bunch

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
