installing Hackintosh mountain lion on a AMD PC

all you have to do is  download

  • iatkos ML2(pirate bay)
  • a hard disk with pre installed snow leopard(10.6.3+)

[NOTE:The Hard disk should have atleast 2partitions(can have more), in which one partition should be empty for installing mountain lion and they should be GUID partition table formatted]
how formatting using GUID?
(should be done during snow leopard installation)


  • mount the downloaded iso/dmg 
  • open terminal and type defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
  • press enter
  • now type killall Finder
  • now open the mounted disk
  • navigate to "system/installation/packages/"
  • open osinstall.mpkg
  • install the same way as you did, select the empty drive made for mountain lion(can be named anything)
  • do not select the bootloader and bootloader options

  • these options will already be selected, let them be
  • just click sleep enabler

  • in the mac model select, MAC Pro 5,1

  • in drivers do not select sound(it usally gives problems in amd)
  • select the other drivers if you need, for example USB3, etc
  • do not select any driver if you are not sure, this can be done anytime when in installation is done(especially VGA)
  • let network be selected

  • THAT'S IT ITS DONE !!!!!

                                        FINAL STEPS

  • download the file
  • this file(mediafire link)
  • copy the file to the root directory of the installed drive

  • Now boot using "amd_kernel arch=x86_64 -v"
common problems

  • hackintosh gets stuck at [PCI CONFIGURATION BEGIN] = add "npci=0x3000" or "npci=0x2000" at the beginning
  • kernel panic 1)try GraphicsEnabler=No
  •                      2)try cpus=6(for phenom x6, it will be 4 for a phenom x4)
  •                      3)specify the busratio (its just your core multiplier)
  •                      4)google he error, or email me(address given below)
  • some sort of a error=-x
  • if -x dont work google it, or email me or facebook (meeteshmehta4@gmail.com) (https://www.facebook.com/eminemeetesh)
