Hi,
 
I'm trying to install Mountain Lion on this machine:
AMD Sempron 145 2.8 GHz Single Core Processor
6 GB RAM
MSI 760GM-P23 (FX)
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6450 1 GB DDR3 PCI-E
450W PSU
250 GB HDD
 
*I know, it's amazing*
 
 
The progress:
Sound worked OOB (onchip)
Snow Leopard 10.6.3 running with legacy_kernel through ModCD
 
 
 
So the problems:
No QE/CI, rocking on 1024x768 through HDMI but I think this will get fixed when I get 10.8
No ethernet, which i think will come when I actually get 10.8 to work (Realtek RTL 8167)
When starting a sort of installed version of Mountain Lion it just restarts after the bootloader, probably cause of the kernel.
 
Kexts:
Spoiler

I'm open to try anything so give me suggestions.

I've tried Niresh's 10.8 for AMD, and it does not work. I get the same thing, just reboots as it tries to load the kernel.

I've tried several kernels that claim to work with AMD processors (along with a countless variations of boot flags), but I think the problem is, I need a legacy kernel.

I have been successful with installing iATKOS's Snow Leopard. I have found download several links to Nawcom's alleged AMD legacy kernel, but all the links lead to what seems to be a dead page http://www.nawcom.com/. I'm not sure what's going on with that, but I read somewhere that he has stopped developmeny due to health reasons. Either way, I have found a few other AMD legacy kernels, but none have worked. Of course, my main source is google which doesn't always give you the best search results...lol

 

Here are my specs:

Acer Aspire 5560

AMD A6-3400M APU

Radeon HD 6520G

ATI BeaverCreek HDMI Audio

Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter

Broadcom BCM57765 Memory Card Reader

 

I would be happy with Snow Leopard, but somethings don't work with it, i.e. audio, wireless/lan, memory card reader and I only have 1 option for display (1280x726... should be 1366x726)

 

Anyway, if anyone has a clue as to what kernel would work with those specs, or how to fix the things that aren't working, it would be greatly helpful... thanks...

That's what I currently have running, and as I stated above, I would be happy with it, if I could just get the screen resolution, wlan/lan and now mouse issue fixed. My touchpad mouse is not being detected. I tried using the latest multibeast to fix said issues, but it didn't work... Should I try an older version of multibeast?

What I did...

Installed a Mountain Lion with VMWare (there's plenty out there, just goodle mountain lion amd vmware)

Grab iATKO'S S3 Version 2
Using a USB Flash Drive:

Booted into my ML vm

With disk utility, I partioned my USB stick as an MBR

With disk utility, load the iATKO'S S3 Version 2 Installer

Select restore

Dragged my USB stick from the left pane to the destination block and let it run

In the iATKO'S files, there is a package to make the usb bootable. Run it and make sure to change the destination to your flash drive

Reboot computer and enter bios

Move boot from usb to top (for me I just enable advnced boot option and press F12 to point it to boot from usb stick)

When the bootloader loads:

Put in your boot flags (This is what worked for me)

mach_qoopz maxmem=4096 busratio=20

That should get the installer to boot

Your mouse may not work, so you will need to use the keyboard to go thru the install process (tab, enter, and spacebar to navigate thru and select things)

Make sure you choose customize and select the qoopz kernel (there are 2 more, but I had the best results with qoopz)

As for what else to install under customize section, I really can't say because it's dependant on machine.

Once the installer finishes, reboot your machine to you Mac OSX drive and run Multibeast to hopefully get everything else to work...
