I already had the case, power supply, hard drive and Samsung superdrive just laying around collecting dust. I decided it was time to make some use of these parts and build my third Hackintosh computer with one of the new 3rd generation Ivy Bridge processors and Z77 motherboards. I always liked the quality of Asus motherboards so thats why I decided on the P8Z77-V LK for this build. I knew there was a good chance I might never get sleep working, but sound and ethernet were a breeze and the Ivy Bridge Intel HD 4000 Graphics was easy enough too using Chimera 1.11.0.
(Basic settings used using UniBeast Mountain Lion Edition 1.5.0, MultiBeast 4.6.1 and Chimera 1.11.0)
1. I just used the "UniBeast - Mountain Lion Retail 1.5.0" to make a bootable Mountain Lion USB Drive.
2. Then installed Mountain Lion to my destination hard drive using my newly created Mountain Lion USB Install disc.
3 After the install is complete I just used MultiBeast 4.6.1 with the exact settings in the Screen Shot picture below.
4. After MultiBeast is finished installing the needed files/settings I then installed the Chimera 1.11.0 Bootloader
that has the needed GraphicesEnabler support for Intel HD Graphics 4000. Thanks to proteinshake for finding AAPL,ig-platform-id.
5. Sleep works with the latest "bios update 0904" and AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement 10.7.4.
5. Then I was finished and ready to startup from my newly created Mountain Lion HD with sound, ethernet, graphics and everything is working perfectly, even sleep!
OK, so If anybody has any better ideas for this build, or If I forgot anything that should be listed here then please list your advice, opinions and questions here. I'm not a hackintosh genius so I probably didn't do a few things exactly the correct way? All I know is everything works great here so I can't complain. Im very happy with this build.
