MOUNTAIN LION 10.8 WORKING on SHUTTLE XPC SH67H3/7 Motherboard V1

August 23, 2012

These are instructions from one of our blog readers gatd, thanks man!

First update your BIOs to the latest version

In windows update your USB 3 Firmware and Drivers to the latest version

Download MultiBeast 4.6.1 and 5.0.2 and ShowAllFiles from www.tonymacx86.com and put on another USB stick

Download UniBeast Mountain Lion 1.5.3

Run and select your ML image (it takes a while so be patient)

Copy onto your USB stick

In BIOS set your USB stick as the First Drive

Format your HD as 1 partition GUID (select in Options)

Install ML ( I used a wired Mac keyboard and mouse in the rear  top USB 2 port)

Keep USB Stick in

On reboot Select Your HD (right arrow at screen after bios)

Fill out your details

Start Using ML

At this point I filled out all my mac details for iTunes, iCloud, FaceTime and Messages.

Then run Multibeast 5.0.2 ( Hold the ctrl Key on your Keyboard to open) and select the following:

 Drivers & Bootloaders / Drivers / Audio select  = Realtek ALC8xx /Without DSDT / ALC888 / V100302 Current ( my board has ALC888)

Miscellaneous / = FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement and USB 3.0 -3rd Party

Network / = Lnx2Mac’s RealtekRTL81xx

Customizations /System Definitions = Mac mini (I am using a i3 with HD3000 built in Graphics)

/Themes  = tonymacx86

Bootloaders / = Chimera v1.11 r1394

Run “showallfiles” and go to the Extra folder on your HD and open the org.chameleon.Boot.plist (it is invisible)

Replace contents with:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>

<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC “-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN” “http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd”&gt;

<plist version=”1.0″>

<dict>

<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>

<string>Yes</string>

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

<string>Yes</string>

<key>Kernel</key>

<string>mach_kernel</string>

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>npci=0x3000 darkwake=0</string>

<key>Legacy Logo</key>

<string>Yes</string>

<key>Graphics Mode</key>

<string>1920x1080x32</string>

<key>Timeout</key>

<string>2</string>

</dict>

</plist>

SAVE

(the 1920x1080x32 part is for my TVs resolution and the Graphics enabler is for the built in graphics HD3000)

Open MultiBeast 4.6.1 ( Hold the ctrl Key on your Keyboard to open) and select System Utilities and continue then Install .

REBOOT

For bluetooth I am using a Belkin mini USB dongle F8T016NG and everything works great, including wake from sleep.

hope this helps someone
