OS X 10.8.5
Hardware Compatibility

This is a component level hardware compatibility list. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying hardware. Add which parts you have working in the categories listed below, or create a new category. Please keep alphabetical order inside the categories. The categories themselves are ordered by popularity. Please list any caveats or problems as well.

  • ONLY add hardware that you have TESTED. Don't add hardware just because you think it might work.
  • Please add hardware into tables.
  • This is for 10.8.5 builds only.

For how to edit the Wiki, please see this thread. Thank you!

Extreme4 Intel z77 System Configuration:
  • CPU: 3570k
  • GFX: GTX 760
  • SND: ALC 898

System Status:

  • All of the above components: Tick.png
  • Sleep Tick.png wip
  • Reboot Tick.png
  • ShutdownTick.png

Notes

  • Sleep: Sleep takes a minute to wake up after keyboard input.

Turned on Suspend to ram in bios but disabled "check bit".

Not stable, but has shown to wake after sleep.


BIOS:

Installation method:
  • Started with tonymacx86 guide.
Note Administrator: Hi, we don't support tonymac' tools. Please find another way for your tuto or let it like this. Cordially
  • Patched Bios
  • Clean ML 10.8.5 install
  • Kept GPU attached to monitor + 4x4gb ram, booted with -v GraphicsEnabler=No (sometimes requires -x) Installs like normal
  • Post install, boot REQUIRES -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No
  • NO DSDT (other settings from guide were same) + GE = NO
  • Rebooted after Ethernet kext install. Booted with -v -s (important)
  • Commands in single user
mount -uw /
mkdir /kextbackup
mv ATI* /kextbackup
mv AppleIntelHD* /kextbackup
  • Reboot should send to desktop without safe boot
  • If it gets hung up on Bluetooth or network card, try rm AppleIntelFrame* /... Since its a gpu issue, not Bluetooth

. DO NOT RESTART UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE ALL OF THE PRIOR STEPS! 

I boot from my raid so I cannot use UEFI yet. I will purchase a SSD one day or a thunderbolt pegasus r6 :P but till then here is my f12 DSDT that enable HDMI AUDIO FOR HD3000, Most Nvidia, and Most AMD cards. Here is a how to for enabling advanced drives to boot from osx also:

How I fixed my Rocketraid RAID10 with 4 (2tb) drives wd ears advanced format green's boot0 error I'm sure it works on other advanced format drives as well:

All done without linux *requires a separate lion installation*

boot into your seperate lion os

open disk utility and unmount your lion raid partition

run showallfiles and copy /usr/standalone/i386/boot1h to the root of your currently running os

open terminal sudo su cd / ls (you should see boot1h in the dir) diskutil list dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2 (this is my disk partition find yours! using the diskutil list) I repeated the dd command 5 times just to be sure it "sticked". reboot and make sure your raid is the booting hard drive enjoy :)
