No iCloud, no AppStore, no internal Ethernet card

Recommended Posts

I am running ML 10.8.2 on an Acer Aspire S3-391 (i5-3317U) without internal Ethernet card – and the internal WiFi card (Atheros AR5BWB222) has no driver, so I have supplied the laptop with a Zyxel NWD2105 Wifi USB stick that successfully has brought the box on to the Internet.

But alas, there is no connection to my iCloud, Appostore or iMessage account.

All the forum explanations on how to get this right says that I have to get the Ethernet interface as en0. That is not possible on my laptop, because there is not possible to create an Ethernet port in the Network pref pane due to lack of hardware.

I have tried to insert UUID number in org.chameleon.Boot.plist, to set EthernetBuilt in to Yes, to remove the NetworkInterfaces.plist and numerous reboots.

So my simple question: Is it possible to use iCloud/AppStore/iMessage on a Hackintosh without internal Ethernet card?

(I believe that´s what MacBook Air does).

If yes, what is the procedure?
