;) NON-PRO ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE SNOW LEOPARD AND LION GUIDE

The first thing is that as you know Im newbe so dont treat this as a bible. ;)
This is only a way I made my hackintosh working. ;)
It doesnt contain how to make everything working (lan, sleep) - if you find a way just tell me I will add it.
But most important things works perfect! :D

Ok. I will start from square one:

Thank you very very much for help me understanding basics of building hackintosh:
tonymacx86 - for all work for hackintosh community.
314Ter and oswaldini - for constant help with building my hackinotsh and understanding the rulez. In Poland we have hackintosh too : Link ;)
TooSixy - I started from his Guide Link
buoo - for constant helping and for dsdt ans ssdt filesLink
flAked - for his SpeedStepper Link
MaLd0n - for help with DSDT Link
stradivari - for eSata solution Link
And Hackintosh community for being here and writing posts :)

Things you need:
a) Mac OS X 10.6 Retail DVD
b) Mac OS X Combo Update 10.6.8
c) iBoot Link
d) Multibeast 3.8.0 Link
e) Kext Wizard Link
f) SpeedStepper patch dla AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (Snow Leopard and Lion versions) Link
g) My zip file with /Extra folder and files needed (smbios iMac 12,2 + boot.plist + FakeSMC + iMac12,2.plist) p8z68deluxe v.1.2.zip

Lets go:
01. Use iBoot with flag PCIRootUID=1 to boot Mac OS X Install Disc.
02. In Disc Manager I prepare hdd = 1 partition - GUID - Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
03. Install Mac OS X 10.6 Retail
04. Reboot.
05. Boot with iBoot PCIRootUID=1 and choose hdd with fresh Mac OSX
06. Remove ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext file from S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins
07. Repair Permissions and Rebuild Cache in S/L/K with Kext Wizard
08. Reboot.
09. Boot with iBoot PCIRootUID=1 and choose hdd with fresh Mac OSX
09. Update to 10.6.8 with MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.8.dmg
10. Reboot.
11. Boot with iBoot PCIRootUID=1 and choose hdd with fresh Mac OSX
12. Now we have Fresh 10.6.8 :)
13. Apply SpeedStep patch:

1) Make a backup of /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext
2) Download SpeedStepper Patch from here Link
3) Copy patch somewhere. For example to your Desktop (/Users/your_user_name/Desktop/)
4) Open terminal
5) cd /Users/your_user_name/Desktop/
6) sudo ./speedstepper /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement
7) You should see "All Done" message after this!
8) Repair Permissions and Rebuild Cache in S/L/K with Kext Wizard

14. Stay in terminal.
15. sudo mkdir /Extra
16. sudo mkdir /Extra/Extensions/
17. Close terminal.
18. Copy content of Extra folder which I attached to your /Extra
19. Repair Permissions and Rebuild Cache in E/E with Kext Wizard (You should see new file Extensions.mkext in your /Extra)
20. Copy iMac12_2.plist to /System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/
21. Repair Permissions and Rebuild Cache in S/L/K with Kext Wizard
22. Use Multibeast and install Chimera.
23. Reboot and pray :)

LION UPDATE:

24. Copy NullCPUPowerManagement to /Extra/Extensions/
25. Repair Permissions and Rebuild Cache in E/E with Kext Wizard
26. Follow tonymacx86 Guide for Lion Update - Remember to have Lion Instalation DMG mounted during xMove Installation!
27. Repeat step 13. with SpeedStepper for Lion GM
28. Remove NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from /Extra/Extensions/
29. Repair Permissions and Rebuild Cache in E/E with Kext Wizard
30. Reboot and pray again :)

***
1. For working Audio use Multibeast: ALC8xxHDA, AppleHDA Rollback and Non-DSDT HDAEnabler ALC889.
2. For working USB 3.0 use Multibeast: USB 3.0 Nec/Renesas kext.
3. For SSD Trim use: TrimEnabler
4. For blutooth use: Link
5. For users who have problems with wifi: remove Apple80211Monitor.bundle from /S/L/SystemConfiguration. (You will not have working auto connection on startup but it will stop dropping and laging.)
6. For eSata use dsdt.aml added. (Modyfied JMB0 section and added DTGP.) dsdt.aml.zip

Great job. This is one of the most clearly organized and well-written guides on this forum. I have almost the same system (Pro version motherboard). I'm going to use this to tweek my setup as I don't have Speedstep working.

Thanks

Cheers won't work on a clean install of lion though although I'm not sure if there is a method with current iboot.

Are you still using the dsdt and ssdt files? How many p states do you get with his and what's your geek bench score like?

Found my p states dropped after i installed first time but have had between 12 and 16 thousand geek bench score.

Just installing second time round so will post here scores in a bit.

Would you explain what does it mean "wont work"? Ive done clean install yesterday and its working.
I have Geekbench around 14203 and PM and Turbo working. (look at pics)

Im not using any dsdt and ssdt cause its not needed.

I tried to install lion on a clean partition (I.e. Blank drive) and wouldn't boot with iboot but not sure if it can anyway at the moment. Brilliant so all 15 states are working? Have you got the MSRDumper read out?

Cheers for the guide by the way is very clear and concise

Don't do that. Asus bios has PCIRootUID=0:

Your DSDT:
Device (PCI0)
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A08"))
Name (_CID, EisaId ("PNP0A03"))
Name (_ADR, Zero)
Method (^BN00, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (Zero)
}

Method (_BBN, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (BN00 ())
}

Name (_UID, Zero)

Ok. I thought that there is PCIRootUID=0 by default. And it doesnt work without PCIRooUID flag.
There is no proper boot cd for sandybridge as far as I know thats why we use this flag.

oswaldini , where you wrote "Your DSDT", can you (or someone) explain what that means and what one would do with it. I'm new and DSDT's are the one are that I'm really not able to understand.
Thanks

Your DSDT = DSDT from your Asus P8Z68 Deluxe.

If you have new Asus Z68 chipset motherboard or ASRock Z68 chipset motherboard you don't need to use DSDT and SSDT at all.

Yes, I have a P8Z68 Pro, so I won't need a DSDT, but for information, what is a DSDT and when is it needed.
Thank you.

I see you have the same board. Is the install for the Pro different than what is described in this thread for the Deluxe?
