**To note: This guide WILL work for ANY of the CustoMac builds with the exception of the network driver; be sure to choose the correct network driver, if one does not work, try another (just use the correct DSDT for the motherboard you are using from the database dsdt.php)**
**Note: For more detailed information on the hardware see my User Build thread here: viewtopic.php?f=54&t=32313
GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 – Bios: F9 – Rev. 1.3
16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600 RAM – G.Skill Ripjaws
ATI 6870 – XFX HD-687A-ZHFC (Also works with Gigabyte GV-R687OC-1GD)
Crucial C300 64GB SSD
xMoved Lion USB Drive (See #0 below)
Blank DVD(or CD works fine too) and USB drive
Steps: (Checkboxes added for printing pleasure)
0. Use the Unibeast installer to create a Unibeast stick per this guide: How to make a Unibeast Install Stick
1. Download MultiBeast 4.0.2 or higher
2. Put MB (MultiBeast), and DSDT from DSDT database (dsdt.php) on a blank USB Drive (or as a separate folder on the Unibeast drive)
3. Plug in Unibeast install drive, turn on target computer and go into BIOS
4. Change HPET to 64-bit
5. Set BIOS to use ACHI instead of IDE
6. Hit F11 on bootup to bring up the boot menu
7. Select Unibeast USB Drive
8. Hit enter
9. Install OSX with whatever options you choose (if your disk doesn’t show up, click on utilities at the top and then go into disk utility and format the drive)
10. After reboot, boot to UniBeast Drive again
11. Instead of picking "Install OSX", hover over your new OSX install and then hit enter
12. Welcome to OSX, our work isn’t done
13. Once you are on your desktop, plug in the USB Drive (or open the mounted Unibeast stick on the desktop and browse to the folder you put the items in) with the stuff on it from #1, place DSDT on the desktop and MB.
14. Select the options as in my this screenshot for MB,
** NOTE: If using another board and using this guide, use userDSDT install and also select your audio chipset**
** ANOTHER NOTE: If using an nVidia card, select the nVidia drivers. **
**FINAL NOTE: Do NOT use the Official Realtek drivers (known to KP under high network load), see the FAQ below if the Ethernet in Multibeast does not work!**

15. Reboot after that is all done.
16. You SHOULD be done now with a fully working, fully vanilla install of OSX running 64bit and native graphics drivers.
**OPTIONAL (If you want to OC)** You can now overclock via the base multiplier. See more at my write up here:
1. My sound isn’t working!
a. I had that problem too, simply run MultiBeast again checking System Utilities, and under Audio make sure Realtek 8xx and HDA Rollback are checked. Run it and reboot.
2. Something graphics related isnt working!
a. Head over to the graphics subforum here: viewforum.php?f=15 This thread is NOT for graphics help.
3. My network card isnt working!
a. Download (and install) Lnx2Mac's new driver here :
http://lnx2mac.blogspot.com/p/realtekrt ... river.html
4. I sometimes get random KP's relating to AppleCPuPowerManagement!
a. Make sure the C-States and EIST are ENABLED (not Auto) in the BIOS.
5. Gordo, I posted a question but you haven't answered it and you're answering everyone else!
a. That means your question was already answered in this thread. Look through it.
This guide closely resembles my P67 guide, however, this allows for a clean Lion install using TonyMacx86 methods. It is the first of its kind and if you have any questions, ask away. This build is lightning quick and can run anything I throw at it, however, the graphics card fan is a little noisy (see my user build link at the top on this). You can use any supported graphics card that is included in GraphicsEnabler=Yes with this guide. I am currently running dual monitors as well (One on Main DVI, other on HDMI). This also worked on the Gigabyte card I tested.
