How to use the DVD:

1 - Boot the DVD and install.

If you need, press F8 for advanced options, for example:
-v (verbose boot)
-x (safe)
-s (single user)
GraphicsEnabler=yes (enable graphics card drivers)
USBBusFix=yes (fix problems with USB devices)
npci=0x2000 (use if boot stops at "PCI configuration begin")
cpus=1 (for HP with Insyde BIOS, use while you don't have patched lapic kernel)

If you get KP related to ApplePolicyControl.kext or problem related to graphics card, use HackBoot viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1616

You need at least one free partition, use Disk Utility (in the Utilities menu) to erase it as Mac Os Extended (Journaled).

If you want to install Chameleon (the boot loader) in this partition and you use MBR (not GUID, like if you already have Windows in the HD), it must be a primary (not extended/logical) partition.

Wait for the installation to finish and restart.

2 - Boot the DVD, press F8 and select to boot the HD (not the install DVD again).

3 - Install Chameleon and the Extra folder to the HD.

I recommend using Chameleon Wizard to install and create/configure org.chameleon.Boot.plist and SMBIOS.plist in /Extra folder.

You can also download an installer or binaries package viewtopic.php?f=9&t=70

4 - Install essential and other kexts you may need (network, audio, etc).

FakeSMC.kext is always needed.

While you don't fix power management you will probably need NullCPUPowerManagement.kext.

If you use PS/2 keyboard or a laptop you will need VoodooPS2Controller.kext (or ApplePS2Controller.kext) and AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext.

Hello and thanks for the work you have done. I'm new to the whole Hackintosh community, so I would really appreciate help if anyone has time.

I burned the ISO image to a dual layer dvd, and it was recognized upon boot. It even started loading. However, after a while it said

"BootCacheControl: Unable to open /Var/db/BootCache.playlist:2 No such file or directory"


My computer is a HP ProBook 4530s (with Inter i3 Sandy Bridge integrated GMA3000 graphics with 6GB DDR3 memory). Apparentely it's compatible with OS X Lion, so I assumed it would be with Mountain Lion too.

I appreciate every reply.

How long did you wait? It's normal to take a little time at this stage of the installer boot.

Try typing "GraphicsEnabler=no".

Nah, didn't do the trick. But it got further by entering the GraphicsEnabler commands, so thanks anyway.

Here's where it got stuck this time around. left it for an hour but nothing changed:

Try using HackBoot with graphics disabler to boot (second attachment) viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1616

So basically I'll boot with HackBoot from an usb stick, and insert the Mountain Lion DVD when it's done it's job (hopefully) ?

No, HackBoot must be on CD, you can use a rewritable media.

Once you get to HackBoot menu, change CD by DVD, wait a few seconds and press F5.

Ok, need to hunt down one of those then. Good to have the iPad for this thing since it's my only laptop :P
By the way, does the hdd need to be formatted into a specific file system or will Mountain Lion take care of it during installation?

See "how to use" on first post
You need at least one free partition, use Disk Utility (in the Utilities menu) to erase it as Mac Os Extended (Journaled).

If you will erase all the HD, you can partition it from the installer.
