I followed Slugnet's steps (1-3) rather than rely on the card working natively. The link that Slugnet included to it working natively seemed to me to be inconclusive, whereas Slugnet reporting his method as definitely working.Congratulations to your successful build! I am building my own Slugnet Hackintosh, I am hoping to receive
the hardware tomorrow. Just curious to hear from someone who has installed the OS according to Slugnet's guide,
after the introduction of the 10.8.2 update. How did you go about with the Multibeast and the graphics card (I am assuming
you use a 660 ti, just like Slugnet)? According to his update, it does not seem necessary to go through step 2 and 3 in Multibeast. Did you just update to 10.8.2 right after you got the system running (and after step 1 in multibeast), or did you have to do something else?
Thank you so much for posting and confirming yet another successful Hackintosh build
Here's something else to consider: I was getting pretty worried today when I tried turning it on, and it wouldn't work! I mean the computer itself just wouldn't boot. No power on, no nothing. I finally discovered that it was the stupid little battery on the motherboard: the CR2032 3V lithium battery! Put a new one in, and I'm up and running again! So, as a precaution, you might want to get some of those batteries in case.
This is the first time I've ever built a PC, and it was a little rough going. But I've survived with more knowledge and comfort around computers. One thing I wasn't prepared for was just how hard it is to remove some of the connections from the PSU to the motherboard and graphics card: at times I felt like I was putting so much pressure I was going to break something. I was watching a NewEgg tutorial, and the builder on that video was easily pushing in and removing connections. That was frustrating! Anyway, nudging a flathead screwdriver around the connections to help pry them can be your friend.
Finally, I'm still testing things. Here are some additional findings (kinda subjective and YMMV):
- One thing I've noticed is that the fans in the NZXT case are kinda loud. I do sound editing on Pro Tools, and it's a bit annoying. So I think I'm going to return this case to a quieter case with some fan control.
- My motherboard displays a "A0" debug code on its LED. The manual says that means "IDE initialization started." But I have no idea what that means, and the manual doesn't explain it.
- not sure about sleep yet or USB 3.0--gotta test!
Would be curious to hear others reports about the above.
EDIT: App store now works fine! I don't know what changed to make it work, but hey, I'm not complaining! Also, my Mbox Pro 3 works fine too!
ANOTHER EDIT: I didn't install Windows 7--just went OSX ML clean install, and guess what? USB 3.0 works fine both on front and rear panels, AND I it also recognizes USB 2.0 devices
