I have after weeks of hard struggling finally managed to get a "ok" hackintosh. Still have some problems that I hope to get help with from the forum members. This is my specs:
Samsung R780 64bit
Motherboard Intel HM55
IntelÂ® Coreâ„¢ i5 430
4 GB (DDR3 / 2 GB x 2)
NVIDIAÂ® GeForceÂ® GT 330M with 1GB gDDR3
Soundcard ALC 889
Ethernetcard Marvell Yukon 88E8059
Wifi Atheros AR9285
500 GB (5,400 rpm S - ATA)
Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR*
Webcam VIMICRO SCB 1900n
I used iboot supported to install, and a orginal 10.6.3 Snow Leopard disk. The installation went fine and when the computer started the first time did I have bluetooth, webcam, graphic (showing up as unknown Nvidia card), touchpad, Keyboard and sound (microphone didnt work) working. But after upgrading from 10.6.3 to 10.6.4 and used multibeast did I lose the sound & the keyboard. I later also notice that after several struggles to get the sound and other things to work did I start to get the "Hibernate image is too old XXXXXX seconds use forcewake=y" in the startup.
The wifi AR9285 did I managed to get 100% working with this kext. Took me ages to find this one. (Airport and everything else works excellent in x64) See attached file. or download from here http://www.kexts.com/view/462-atheros_ar9285.html
My problems is that the Marvell Yukon 88E8059 dont work, and Im still trying to find a working kext. PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ONE.
The ALC889 is still not working as it should, I tried the VodooHDA and it will give me working sound, but still no support for microphone
so if anyone has a working kext for that problem please tell me!
The Samsung R780 is a great machine to make a Hackintosh with, and I can really recommend it. Just with some extra KEXT will this be a perfect machine!
Hope some other people has some tips to get my machine working better.
For example do I try to get the inbuilt multi touchpad (Synaptics) to go from basic to advanced, so I will be able to write chinese characters on the touchpad and so on.
I only spent 1 month as a TOTAL beginner trying to fix my Hackintosh, and Im sure with just 1-2 extra months will I have everything working.
Thanks Tonymac and all others for the great help and tips.
Best regards Bumbi
