Finally, got Mt.Lion to install on EP45-UD3P! Had to reset Bios to Default Settings and reset Bios per LifeHacker SL settings plus USB for keyboard and mouse, of course. Install went OK but on reboot via Unibeast USB got to Apple logo and spinner for 1 hour! Rebooted into Safemode from Unibeast, repaired permissions and installed MultiBeast, Easy Install plus Lnx2Mac ethernet. Everything appears to work even better than in SL and Lion.

EP45-UD3P Optimized settings

Later I loaded Optimized setting in Bios, changed setting in Bios per Lifehacker SL recommendations and ML boots.

how

i ran the installer like 40 times, i can get it to go on a fresh install, gfx (Gefore 8800gt) and nics work stock, if i run multibeast i can only choose the chimera, and install the nocpupowermanagement.kext thing to stop the crash of bios nack to defaults,

I too ran the same bios screens and works fine, however what R u doing about sound??? I cant get it working period, i as using voodoo and it worked fine, but KP on mt lion, stuck. plus i dont have a dsdt so that might F me.

thanks alot, gonna try this shortly, (currently on my CCC disk 10.7.4) as mt lion kp untill reboot, do i still need to do the applehda rollback??

oh i did add the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to S/L/E on the Mt Lion usb installer and that helps the bios reset issue, and stays with the lifehacker guide pics, also added showallfiles and a few other boot finds, like kextutility and some other junk for a just in case.

That's good news. I have the same MB. How would this hardware run ML?

MB - EP45 UD3P
CPU - Q9550 Core2 Quad @ stock 2.83
RAM - 4x2GB GSkills DDR2 1066
GPU - EVGA GTS250 1GB VRAM (dual DVI)

HDD - SATA2, 500GB or 1TB
DVD - Pioneer Bluray

So the best place to start is by loading the BIOS optimized settings and then Lifehacker settings? Do you have a link to the Lifehacker settings?

Thanks

yes it is here,


Install Snow Leopard on Your Hackintosh PC, No Hacking Required

basically make sure the drives are ahci, 64bit, and no floppy or mode3 support, the rest is pretty default. if you dont do the HPET mode to 64 bit or the drives to AHCI for data/raid ahci mode it wont work,
also change video card init to PEG vs pci

EP45-UD3P Sound

Do not remember exactly what I did to get sound to work but I usually start with the first one on Multibeast the list and work my way down until something works.
