Intel HD 3000 graphics is integrated inside the Intel’s 2nd-generation processors (known as “Sandy Bridge” processors), it works only with Os X Lion and Mountain Lion and probably will work with new upcoming Os X 10.9. The VGA port is not working (Macs don’t use VGA ports). You have to use DVI or HDMI port. If you are not already using chimera bootloader, make a fresh install of Os X Lion or ML with latest Unibeast bootloader and Multibeast after install utility.
DSDT.aml (Differentiated System Description Table) is a file used to tell OS X how to locate and enable features of your computer mainboard without checking of BIOS. It can be placed at the root of your system hard drive or in /Extra folder which depends on your installation method.
It’s possible to tweak Os X system in all sorts of ways by changing lines of code in the DSDT.aml file. Unfortunately, you can’t just open this file in TextEdit. First you must extract your DSDT.aml, convert it to DSDT.dsl, then edit it and recompile it to DSDT.aml. To make it easy there is a GUI application that allows you to do all of this in one editor.
There are numerous ways to create bootable USB installer for hackintosh, most of them are Chameleon based and Unibeast is just one of them. The installation process is quite simple if you bought your copy from App store. Download Unibeast and just follow tonymacx86 instructions and you are good to go. But you should consider that tonymacx86 is not an open source and therefore is not in OSx86 spirit. Also apparently he stole the code from qoopz , nawcom , AnV and few others that made the legacy kernel. Here is one great explanation why you should not use tonymacx86, and here is another.
But there is another way to install it and even more, it supports raw installESD.dmg instalation, it’s called myHack, it’s Chameleon based USB Instaler + after install utility. MyHack functionality is more less the same as Unibeast + Multibeast, just simplier and better…
Updated to Mountain Lion 10.8.3 without any significant problems. Check bottom of the post for detailed info!
Gigabyte GA P41T-D3P is very cheap motherboard and it’s perfect solution if you wanna use your older socket 775 CPU with a newer DDR3 memory to build a low budget hackintosh. Actually its cheaper to buy new motherboard + 2x4GB DDR3 memory modules than just 2x4GB DDR2 memory modules which are very expensive this days. This tutorial will show you how to setup your BIOS, and install OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion on this specific motherboard, but it should work for most intel based Gigabyte main boards and core2duo or later processors. You just need to find exact hardware you use, and than select specific drivers and (if u use) DSDT.aml for your main board.
This tutorial shows how to install Retail Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 64 bit on a PC based computer. It’s made specific for the Gigabyte GA EP41-UD3L main board, but most of tutorial should work for most intel based main boards and core2duo or later processors. You just need to know exact hardware you use, and than select specific drivers and (if u use) DSDT.aml for your main board. Mountain Lion does not support 32 bit mode anymore…
Well, this is a list of common boot flags for chameleon based bootloaders, I always forget them, so decided to put it here for “once and for all”… feel free to add more flags in comments if you like 🙂
-x – safe boot
-v – boot in verbose mode, to see actual error or kernel panic error
-f – reload all kext and dump the boot config cache
-s – single user
If you enter some extra boot flags into org.Chameleon.boot.plist, but they’re messing up your Hackintosh’s bootloader, enter the -F boot flag to ignore them.
Forces Mac OS X to boot into 64-bit mode.
System loads in 32 bit mode while running on 64 bit version of Os X.
