[Tutorial] Booting Mac OS X Mountain Lion on Acer Aspire 7730g laptop

Just a short video of my Acer Aspire laptop booting mac os x Mouantain Lion (10.8.2).

How i got it on my pc:
1. Download the original mountain lion install dvd
2. Open it on your mac
3. format a 8 gb usb
4. Download Xmove from tonymacx86
5. Let Xmove install the mountain lion installer on the usb
6. Now use unibeast to make your USB Bootable (some versions don’t work)
7. In the usb go to Library/extensions and delete all the Intel drivers and ps2 drivers
8. Put all the kexts from my kext pack in Library/extensions (except ps2.pkg – dsdt.aml – chameleon.pkg)
9. Do this on mac with Champlist and on Windows with transmac
10. Now just boot!

Check out my other video booting Lion on this laptop with commentary.

How to fix pci configuration begin: use the AppleACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily kext from 10.6.7 – 10.6.6 in my kext pack

The boot flag i used in the video was only -v (verbose mode).
Boot flags for first boot were: -v -f -x pcirootuid=1 graphicsenabler=yes npci=0x2000 cpus=1

  3. Hi
    We have very similar hardware ..
    Acer 7730g for you ..
    and acer 7730zg for me.

    1)The lion install you describe in your video , does it use mbr ?
    (my HDD is mbr and contains 2 other OS and data – I dont want to mess it up
    2) can I use your kexts for other future installs ?

  4. I have an acer 7730zg
    I have W7 and Linux installed.
    I want to install OS X mountain lion too

    Does your OS X install require GPT (GUID) partion scheme ? (mine is mbr)
    Can I do this on a MBR ?

    [I had used Gparted to get GPT schemme on my HD , but could not successfully format and install W7 on one of the partitions]

  5. mooi… ik moet dit toch ook voor elkaar kunnen krijgen. Loop nu steeds tegen een kernel panic aan na tig x proberen om mijn 10.6.6 te updaten naar 10.6.8, maar wil dus eigenlijk een recentere versie zoals Lion draaien en helemaal liever M-Lion.
    Welke installatie gebruik je bv

  6. Heb het geprobeerd met jouw flags op mijn 7730g, maar geen succes… Blijft hangen bij pci configuration. Ik kom dus niet eens op het installeer scherm. Grrrr
    ps voor de nog mindere techneuten.. verander je description de hoofdletter gevoelige flags zoals bv PCIRootUID=1. Verder prima gedaan en bedankt.
