Interesting, but I have a question or two.

The m350 documentation (and the customer support at mini-box.com) is VERY SPECIFIC about the box being designed to handle LOW-WATTAGE CPUs with 65W TDP max, i.e., a "T" Intel chip or an i3 2125 at most.

Not sure if the unclocked 3570K you installed will lead to instability or worse. I'd be curious to find out. In reality, even though I have an m350 myself (i3-2125) with the 160W Pico PSU, the box is not REALLY designed for a socket MOBO; it's really supposed to house embedded systems.

Anyway, it sure is handsome. My idea was to mount the m350 using its 100mm VESA holes onto the back of a 23" or so monitor, but I've been unsuccessful at finding a monitor with 100mm VESA holes; lots of 'em have 80-85mm holes, but the 100mm ones seem hard to find at the price point (<$160) I'm considering...

Yes, they do say:

picoPSU-160-XT High power is ideal for boards such as D945GCLF2, DG45FC, (Atom, Core 2 Duo) as well as all VIA C7/nano or AMD motherboards.
Operating at only 12V, the picoPSU-160-XT dc-dc ATX power supply delivers 160 Watts of power. picoPSU provides plenty of power (via ATX connector and HDD cable harness) for CPU and an entire range of peripherals.
picoPSU-160-XT is a fully compliant DC-DC ATX PC PSU. It can power VIA mini-ITX boards with C3 / C7 processors, P3, P4, Pentium-M, Core Duo versions and low power AMD processors.

My system is stable so far. And as you know, Intel i5 3570K is 77w max (no overclock). I think the total power consumption would be more critical if a lot of peripherals are connected to the motherboard. Otherwise, the power stability is no problem (in my experience). I confirmed that this build consume no more than 100w. With picoPSU-160-XT and high power adapter, you can get 192w max. This little power supply is awesome.

I do have a 100mm VESA hole 27" monitor, and I haven't decided yet whether to mount the system or not. (I'm little worried about the heat from the monitor.)
However, I think it's possible to mount the M350 onto the back of the monitor without any troubles. And it'd be invisible...:p

So, what USB-Dongle works perfectly with the standard kexts?

I don't remember exactly what brand was my USB-bluetooth dongle, however, the system report says:

Manufacturer: Broadcom
Firmware Versions: v14 c20806
Vendor ID: 0xa5c
Product ID: 0x2153

this works natively.

I'd buy tony's recommended dongle, Targus Bluetooth USB Adapter (ACB10US).

I'm considering using this case for my mini build. Can I get by using normal sized ram that doesn't have a taller heatspreader, or would I have to use these shorter sticks?

Normal sized ram is fine.

What do I have to do to get WiFi working?

EDIT: so far i got WiFi working by adding the devID in the kext. It says i need to add the DevID in the Atheros40 kext to get AirDrop working. How is this done? FYI: i got an AR 9285 with bluetooth working OOB. So for now on I'm having WiFi and bluetooth.
Audio is not working although i tried the ALC892 kext... Any Information on this?
And last but not least I need to get Sleep working. The Hackintosh does not wake up again :/

What were your exact multibeast setting?

For Audio, I checked 4 boxes: Realtek ALC8xx - Unified Device Injector - ALC8xxHDA, AppleHDA Rollback, Non-DSDT HDAEnabler - ALC892, and Patched AppleHDA ALC892. (MultiBeast 4.6.1.)

Sleep doesn't work after the string injection for HD4000 full graphic acceleration. (The only problem for right now.) I believe this is temporary and will be fixed in near future (Chimera update for HD4000 injection?).

Hi hspfriend,

Any chance you can post a screenshot of your MultiBeast set up? I'm a complete n00b trying to get Mountain Lion to work with Zotac's H77ITX-B-E motherboard, which is nearly identical to your Z77 board with the obvious exception of the chipset and a few different ports.

Anyway, I got through Unibeast okay, and I can boot (once!) into Mountain Lion, but after I run Multibeast with a minimal config [adding only the Bootloader/Chimera] , I get a kernel panic.

Anyway, a screenshot of your MultiBeast would be a big help.
Thanks

The automatic chimera HD 4000 enabler does not work well with Zotac Z77-ITX. Adding this lines to the org.chameleon.boot.plist makes the HD 4000 work correctly. In the Bios you have to set the initial VRAM for the HD4000 to 32MB just before the startup with the new settings! You do not have to unplug and plug the display anymore in order to have good image with this injection. The MiniDisplayPort works also. I don't have a device to test HDMI Audio. Some feed back about HDMI Audio is welcome. I am using a patched BIOS and a DSDT from another Z77-ITX post with a link mentioned in this thread before. For the audio I am only using the patched AppleHDA.kext from Multibeast
So here is it:

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>No</string>
<key>device-properties</key>
<string>7f0000000100000001000000730000000200000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000005006201140000006800640061002d0067006600780000000d0000006f6e626f6172642d31</string>

Now the known problems:
For me Wake Up from sleep does not work, anybody had success with some SleepEnabler.kext ?

Also bluetooth do not work with a firmware updater kext. Anybody got bluetooth working with the integrated Aeros AR5B195? I have the PID: 0x3000 and VID: 0x0CF3 for bluetooth under USB devices.

And a minor bug in chimera produces a delay of 10-15 sec on every startup saying 4 times
EBIOS Read Error: Error 0x31

I hope all this problems will find solutions soon. Thank you so far all hackintosh community for making it possible!

hspfriend, can you please list out the the BIOS settings that you did for the Z77ITX? Just want to double check everything.

Thanks.

Hi,
i have the same Board and CPU.


I'm not sure if i'm using the patched bios flash from minihack. How can I verify if my BIOS flash had work (I spend a lot of time to make a bootable MS-DOS USB Drive)? I think I get it but not sure. The BIOS indicate:
-Project Version: A229P 0.07 x64
-Build Date and time: 06/05/2012

Also wake from sleep doesn't work. I follow the instruction from minhack but I can't fix it. This is an important thing for me.

Furthermore the BIOS screen indicated: "Ebios read error 0x31 block ....." IS this important?

Im using an original Airport card and a bluetooth dongle


Nice work from hspfriend, minhack and mackintoshhealer. It helps a lot.

This my first HAckintosh build.

Hope my english is fair enough.

Wherre can i find this setting (VRAM)

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>No</string>
<key>device-properties</key>
<string>7f0000000100000001000000730000000200000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000005006201140000006800640061002d0067006600780000000d0000006f6e626f6172642d31</string>

You can't tell from the BIOS version string if it's a patched one or not. Mine is the stock unpatched BIOS and it's the same as yours:
Code:
Project Version: A229P 0.07 x64
Build Date and time: 06/05/2012
Best way to check is: If you kernel panic with an unpatched AICPUPM and no NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in S/L/E then you have the stock BIOS. If you can bootup OK then your BIOS is patched.

Easiest way of making a USB boot drive if you have a WinXP PC or Parallels is bootflashdos available at http://gocoding.com/page.php?al=bootflashdos

Where do you see the "Ebios read error..."? I'm not getting it. Dunno if it's important.

Wake from sleep doesn't work for me either. I think it's working for minihack because he's using the 2500K instead of out 3570K.
