OPTIMIZING YOUR OSX INSTALL AND NEXT STEPS.
So you have a fresh install running now after the boot as described in the last step of previous guide. You should not be resetting stuff until it's done.
In my case I like to install CUDA / NVidia drivers first before I run Multibeast.
You can find these downloads here:
Release Date: 2012.10.02
Operating System: Mac OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.2
So before you run Multibeast and further optimization you want to install these drivers first. Install Nvidia driver first and it will ask you to restart.
You can restart but don't forget to boot up again from the USB stick with the parameters given before and you should be back on your desktop with these drivers installed. At that point you can install CUDA driver (won't ask you to restart).
So now, when you got this part covered. You want to run Multibeast. Multibeast will basically install Chameleon boot loader and adjust a few kexts to get things operational.
On this setup I have you should pick the following:
You will notice that I picked eSATA support as well as TRIM enabler. That's because I have both eSATA ports and SSD drives. I also chose support for USB 3.0 and OpenCL patch for the retail driver you installed previously.
I did not pick Audio drivers because support in Multibeast for audio for this motherboard (including Rampage) is flakey so I decided to go with another driver.
So when you have these options picked. Hit Continue and wait until it finished.
so now, since Mountain Lion has a bit of an issue with support for multicore processors with the newest i7s (Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge) on Hackintoshes you will need to add the following KEXT file to your system.
So download this file VoodooTSCSync.kext to your desktop: https://docs.google....2xMOHRoMUk/edit
Since I already noted that you should have also downloaded a utility called KextUtility, you want to start this app now. Wait until it fixes permissions and does it's thing..
When it says it did that , you should drag the VoodooTSCSync.kext from your desktop into the app and you should see it being installed.
This file now enables you to have a 6-core CPU properly recognized and fully utilized.
Now, let's add the audio and make it working. The driver I'm using right now is VoodooHDA 2.82 version for Mountain Lion.
You can find it here VoodooHDA.kext - https://docs.google....V81eHVkZHM/edit
You will also need the preference pane file VoodooHDA.prefPane from here: https://docs.google....2xMOHRoMUk/edit
Now, you will drag VoodooHDA.kext file you downloaded again to desktop to KextUtility and have that installed and you will also copy VoodooHDA.prefPane file to System/Library/PreferencePanes
Okay..that should do it.. we got Audio covered (my audio chip is ALC892 on Sabertooth but since this VoodooHDA is universal it should work on other ALC8xx chips as well) like Rampage ALC898 chip.
Now we have 2 small things to do. One is to add additional description for the CPU in one plist file and install a nice theme for the boot loader.
So let's do this minor adjustment in your OSXDrive / Extra folder. See image:
So you open this smbios.plist file and you will add these 2 things after the last set of keys in there.
1281 is designation for 3930k 6-core
Save it and you are done there.
You should also use my org.chameleon.Boot.plist file to look like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
GraphicsEnabler key should be No if you have 6xx series card. Graphics Mode is so your boot loader screen loads in a higher resolution. Maximum for me is 1600x1200x32 you shouldn't go higher as it is known to cause issues if you use unrecognized mode.
and now, let's make that boot loader screen nicer.
Go here and download the theme:
All you have to do is go here:
and you do what I did.. rename the Default folder to Default_old, create a new folder Default and put all the files from that zip you downloaded in it. That's it.
Close and run KextUtility one more time to repair all permissions and stuff and you can remove the USB stick and boot from the drive directly.
When you restart you should get a boot loader that looks like this:
