    Default My first build - Z77X-UP5-TH with Asus GTX660 ... white screen problem ... then ...

    This is my first hackintosh build. I followed the tonymacx86 guide, and the Unibeast install went well, and I soon had a booting OS ML on my Sandisk Extreme 128 SSD.

    However when I followed, carefully, the suggested Hacks by Alpha page, and on re-boot, I got a white screen which comes up after every re-boot and doesn't go away.

    I'm pretty green at this, and the threads I found with this "white screen" problem (connected with the GTX660, apparently) seemed to indicate a fix had NOT been found so far. I wasn't sure what do do next, but I figured that for starters, I had to re-install ML.

    I used Disk Utility did an "erase" on the Sandisk, and re-ran Unibeast. I thought it was going well, but on re-boot, I did not get a boot into ML, but rather a black DOS looking screen (see attached jpg). What could be causing this?

    Any help is greatly appreciated !

    Thanks,

    Default

    OK, my bad ...

    (1) it was not "proper" to merely "erase" the ML partition on the Sandisk SSD mentioned earlier. I now blew away the partition with Disk Utility, re-created it, ran the Unibeast, and I was back into a ML desktop !!

    (2) I did NOT carefully follow all of the steps in Hacks by Alpha for my Z77X-UP5-TH. I was more careful this time

    (3) I was working with 10.8.3 and the Hacks by Alpha page for the Z77X-UP5-TH seem to be assuming 10.8.2. I could not run the "10.8.2 Supplemental Update" (obviously ... I guess :-) Also the "MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 2.0" would not run. I guess that it is not needed with the 10.8.3 ?
