Mountain Lion + Kakewalk + GA-UD3P-EP45 + ATI Radeon HD4870x2

By | Hackintosh | 3 Comments

I am succesfully running Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on a GA-UD3p-EP45 with a Radeon HD4870x2 with full QE/CI support.  I have attempted to summarize all the information needed to make a successful install with complete graphics and driver support.  Here is my brief guide, please leave any questions in the comments:

1.  Reset BIOS to Optimized Defaults (Sorry, it has to be!)
2.  Download Kakewalk 4.5
3.  Follow these instructions to setup Kakewalk and boot Mountain Lion
4.  Download the ep45-UD3p Post Install.zip.  >> Make sure this ends up on your USB Key!

You will not have Sound, Ethernet, or PS/2 support out of the box.  Also – if the system won’t boot on the first try – restart and let it try again.  (AppleRTC patch is not yet patched).

Once you get to your desktop >>

1.  Open Kext Utility, it will Repair permission automatically at first, let it run —

2.  Open the QE_CI Exotic Patch folder.

3.  When Kext Utility is finished repairing permissions drag and drop (one at a time) ATIRadeonX2000.kext and ATI4800Controller.kext into the Kext utility.  It will repair permissions each time it processes a Kext file!

4.  Reboot

You should now have full graphics.

1.  Run MultiBeast
