    Snow Leopard on a Macbook Pro 2012 MD101 core i5 Ivy Bridge (almost perfect)


    Hi

    First of all I must say that English it's not my main language, so forgive me for any mistakes in my writing

    Well I need help, I've managed to install Snow Leopard on my macbook pro 2012 MD101 ivy bridge core i5, Why Snow Leopard? because I need that OS to run Protools HD9 and because for me it's way better than Lion and ML (but that's a personal opinion so I don't mean to argue about that)

    The thing is that I've found a way to install SL on this mac, Even so that many people told me it's not possible because the snow leopard kernel and all...

    Well I'll explain how I did it:
    1) I connect the macbook pro to my hackintosh in target mode (pressing "T" on boot)
    2) I restore the OSX drive of my hackinghtosh ( core i7 950 / Gigabyte x58a-ud5/ 6 Gb OZC ram / Nvidia GTX 275) to the harddrive of the macbook pro
    3) After restoration ends, I explore the macbook pro restored osx partition and delete the "mach_kernel" file and replace it with this one http://www.osx86.net...d_10.6._...html
    4) I delete the "extra" folder in the restored osx partition of the macbook
    5) disconnect the macbook of the hackinghtosh, reboot and booted to snow leopard with no problems or KP
    6) Using the "Kext Helper" app I install AppleHDA, IOAudio2Family and IOAudioFamily kexts that I extracted using pacifist from this update
    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1542 to enable audio

    and well almost everything's perfect, SL understand the cpu model, cores, frequency, ram, etc.

    THE ONLY PROBLEM... it's the intel HD4000 video... it's not recognized I mean I have image and all, but no Acceleration and the most important thing for me... I can't use the mini display port for connecting an external monitor to the macbook

    That's why I post here, to ask if anyone can help me in this, I searched everywhere but I could not find guides or any post of someone doing the same thing

    I'm guessing that HD4K on SL is a no-go. No drivers to support it. Even on a hack...

    I though so :( but is there a way to just using an external monitor through the mini display port? I wish I could wake up the port only
    I dont really need acceleration :(

    No correct resolution on internal 1600x900? No VGA out?
    I could still use some old PPC software through Rosetta...
