successful install/boot, some bugs?

Recommended Posts

Hi All! New to this site, awesome site and resources, thanks!

 

It's been a few years since I "hackintoshed". I had a successful install of Snow leopard on this computer years ago, so dug it out and wanted to try out Mountain Lion.

 

My rig (an oldie):

Amd Athlon64x2 2.2Ghz

MSI K9agm-2 motherboard (socket am2, 690g chipset)

onboard sound:Realtek ALC888

Onboard LAN Realtek 8101E 

nvidia 8400gs 512mb pci-e graphics (evga)

 

I must say that Niresh's distro worked awesome! My old snow leopard required many custom kexts and much tweaking, but Niresh's distro worked right after first install. Recognizes the cpu as intel dual core, but it works, everything else seems working: sound, internet, recognizes the 8400gs and monitor and displays at 1080 resolution. (Should I post this system specks somewhere as working with Mountain Lion?)

 

So now my "bugs":

- I try to install/update flash player but it won't install, sometimes get error, sometimes just get the bouncing red "f" box on the dock

- the mouse pointer graphic stays stuck on the multi-color spinning wheel, or the double ended arrow, whichever it stays at becomes my mouse pointer for the rest of that session (unless I log off and go back in)

- sometimes after closing something a faint image of that window remains on the desktop

 

Thoughts? Is it a hardware issue? A kext issue? Normal hackintosh bugs? Do you need more info?

Thanks :)

Sometimes you have to install the corrects kexts for the hardware and make sure your hackintosh is workingCorrectly so that others application dont give you issuesLike if you dont install the correct Graphics kexts or you dont have full GraphicsA application Like adobe photoshop or final cut pro mite encounter errors/issuesSo is more like a kexts issue or not having your hackintosh fullyWorking

Yes that makes sense, thanks.

 

Maybe I'm more out of touch than I thought.

My hackintosh info shows the proper video card (evga 8400gs) so does that mean it has the proper kext, or not always?

 

My sound does show as voodoo hda, so do I need to work on a proper sound kext, or will it always show voodoo for older hardware?

 

Thanks for the help :)

No I did not. Like I said, I'm more out of date with hackintoshing then I thought. When I did my previous Snow Leopard project, the vid card and even the sound were listed as unknown - I couldn't get any higher resolutions to work, no sound, etc until I installed the proper kext's. But that must be the differernce using a distro like Niresh's - it must include some generic kexts that work. I will being the hunt for the proper kexts, thank you :)

    • Hello Guys. I try at the moment to install Sierra Zone, but the installer won't start! If i try to open the installer with UEFI, it shows this: But if i try to open with the non-UEFI version, the Computer reboots if I want to start the installer. I already research for it, but I didn't found something usefull for me. Can someone help me? PC Specs.: AMD FX-6300 8 GB RAM ASRock 970M Pro3 nVidia GeForce GTX 730
    • Thank you Niresh for all of your tips. Unfortunately i couldn't get to the installation screen. 

      After trying to boot with both bootloaders (Chameleon and Clover) my pc still reboots seconds after trying to boot.

      I think it's something related to my motherboard due to it being old. Thanks anyways! Glad to see you're still working on those beautiful distros. I've been a follower since the other blog.

And about the SMBIOS, can you tell me about it?  cause, i dont know what is that for. and where can i find that thing? And the /haswell boot-arg, do i have to enter it everytime that i want to boot in Mac OS X? (Also thanks for the help about the graphics again.)
