    Hi guys.

    Been messing about with Hackintosh on my Sabertooth Z77. Since Apple gave Mavericks away I though I would have a look.

    Installed Snow Leopard, updated to get the APP Store then downloaded a genuine FREE MAC OS X Mavericks.

    Used the usual tools to get it going but found trouble making it boot properly.

    Reading about I found out the Sabertooth BIOS may need patching. Summet to do with the power saving mode, I think.

    Just wondering if anybody had used the "PMPatch" tool and have any input on this matter.

    Bit worried I may FEK things up..:eek:

    Thanks for that link...Downloaded...;)

    Question.....

    Did you find that or have you modded it yourself.

    I already modded my BIOS to hold permanent Asus SLIC 2.1. But I guess a new flash can't hurt that.

    You say use USB Flash Back. I would have to run that file through the renaming tool. As far as I am aware it would have to be called "Z77ST.CAP". But this is not hard to do at all.

    Cheers Tito.

    Nice one. :)

    So can I ask you some more question regarding this.

    I guess you have other experience of using the PMPatch tool.
    Does this patch make a lot of difference in enabling MAC OS X to boot properly.

    Is it possible for you to do me a favour. :cool:

    Would you mind running the BIOS file through the PMPatch tool again, then take a screen shot of the result and post it up here for me to look at.
    Then I can compare your result with the one I got.

    With the risks involved in BIOS modding I would rather do it my self, if you know what I mean.

    I am gunna run my modded SLIC2.1 BIOS through the PMPatch tool.
