Hey, I have been reading about hackintoshes for a while, and have been excited to finally get mine up and running. I thought it would be a simple process since there are so many detailed guides on this website, but despite following them to the letter I cannot get anything to work on my build. Let me explain what all I have tried... First the parts I am using all come out of the buyers guide (except the SSD I believe, though I don't think that really matters.) Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H Motherboard Rev 1.1 Intel Core i3 3225 8Gb of Corsair Vengeance Blue 1600Mhz Ram 120Gb OCZ Vertex 3 SSD A few days ago I began the installation using the guide on the front page of this website, everything went smoothly booting from the USB, installing, rebooting, and then it froze booting into the ML install from USB. I reset, and booted via safe mode, finished the installation, and ran MultiBeast, installing DSDT Free, the audio driver that matched the board, the network driver that matched, graphicsenabler=no and I don't believe I did anything else. reboot, nothing happens, frozen again. Using -v boot flag I was hung with AppleHDAController codec or something like that. After reinstalling, again having to boot in safe mode for part 2 of OS setup (using -v without safe mode I discovered that is hanging on the IOBluetoothController that I see others have had problems with as well), I ran multi beast again, this time ONLY installing DSDT free, reboot and I was able to boot into the OS without -x, from the SSD. Success! Until I install the audio driver, and then AppleHDAcontroller error again. This tells me something is wrong with the installation of that audio driver (btw, if any has a solution or fix for that, surely I'm not the only one experiencing it!) So today, after reinstalling and trying to set up using instructions from loginfailed's build, and a couple other user builds, all without success I am posting here. Starting from scratch, here is my progress now: Set BIOS to optimized defaults changing ONLY Sata Mode to AHCI. Install using Unibeast created usb drive Unibeast installer froze for about 15 minutes, so I hit the reset button Mountain Lion install showed up so I tried to boot into it using -v, no luck, froze on the IO BluetoothController thing Reset, booted using -x, got into the installer to finish setting up OS Finished OS set up inserted flash drive containing MultiBeast copied Multibeast to desktop changed permissions to allow me to run multibeast ran multi beast, only trying to install DSDT free, nothing else, installation fails try again, installation fails restart, safe mode again, try again using fresh download of MB, this time it froze and a bunch of -v looking text popped up on the screen showing some kind of panic error restart again, same thing again, restart, now I can't even boot in safe mode it is hanging on -power management may be incomplete or unsupported- That's where I have decided to stop for now before I throw the thing off my roof. I have no idea what to do, it seems like every time I start over things get worse. I am very disappointed with the other posts on here because despite following various other build instructions to the letter, I have been unable to even finish the unibeast installation without using -x If someone, anyone could offer up something that I haven't already tried, I would sure appreciate the help. Should I use a different HDD? Give up on 10.8 and try 10.7 instead? I have no idea, I really want this to work, I'm not ready to give up yet!!!
