Help with ML install on Asus P8Z68 Deluxe please?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody,

Please could someone help me, I'd be much appreciated as I would really like to try out a mountain lion hackintosh for the first time.

I am trying to install mountain lion 10.8.3 to be specific.

Here are the steps I have done:

1. Mounted InstallESD.dmg

2. Mount basesystem.dmg and cloned it to a removable drive.

3. Deleted the alias packages and replaced it with the normal packages folder.

4. copied the mach_kernel, (sorry for spelling) to the USB drive.

5. created a folder called Extra on the USB drive, and copied Extensions.mkext

as well as org.chameleon.Boot.plist and smbios.plist which I got from:


6. Installed Chameleon-2.1svn-r1820.pkg to the USB drive.

I then boot with the USB drive and I get, press any key for startup options.

It then loads to a white screen with a spinning disk.

I have tried at the startup options:

GraphicsEnabler=No -v

Text appears to come on the screen but goes away when the white screen with the spinning cd comes up.

I have also trie:

NPCI=0x3000 -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 UseKernelCache=No

But same result.

curiously enough, if I try only -x then I get to the language screen.

Could you please tell me what can I do to eliminate the -x? could it be the graphics that is the problem?

Appoligies for not very discriptive screen information, I am visually impaired and so someone had told me the things which I tried to explain on the screen.

I've got lion 10.7.5 working, but I would like to try Mountain lion please.

Thanks for reading and sorry for the long post.

My report follows:

I have tried to delete nv100*.kext and have booted with the commands: -f GraphicsEnabler=No

But still I get the white screen with the spinning logo.

I then deleted all the folders starting with: "nv" and then booted with the commands: -f graphicsEnabler=No

Yay, it works! thanks for the help!!! but:

once I click on continue, after having selected the language, it presents me with utilities:

restore from time machine backup, reinstall, disk utility etc.

I choose reinstall and click on continue, and it gives me the following:

this copy of mountain lion is damaged etc. sorry I can't remember exact word.

So, my question is: having deleted those nv folders, what could I do now?

Could you please help me to find a copy that I can install please?
