Creating a Media Center with PC Hardware & MAC OSx - Hackintosh Step by Step - Part #1





Okay... I'll do this article in english. My friends from Brazil plz put this page at translate.google.com
There are 3 videos i've made about this article in Portuguese... If you don't have time to them, just jump to next text... ;)

Part One

Part Two

Part three




First of all... THE IDEA...


Well the idea is to create a Media Center, but use MAC OSx and not Windows. And I want to be able to stream from any devices and idevices to this Media Center and vice-versa.

So first.. There are somethings to know...

a) It's not easy as it seems
b) You'll fail if don't follow this ;)
c) Don't worry, you can do this.

Lets split this Article in some Fases...

a) Choose the right Hardware
b) Install the Software
c) Adjustments


FASE A: CHOOSING THE HARDWARE
The easy way... goto HARDWARE BUILDS
choose any of these builds and be happy... But if you stuck at some different hardware cus you're in Brazil and did not find the MotherBoard or anything else at a good price, $$$$$$ so... you need to know the MOST IMPORTANT THING.... The MB(Motherboard) Rules this project. If you pick the wrong one, say bye bye to your money and time...

Before choosing... you need to know what is a DSDT!!!!!!!!! If you know something about hardware will be easy to understand... just read this:
ACPI
and this
DSDT

If you don't wanna know and don't care about learning... okay... but knowledge is the key to solve future problems.

Again... if you don't mind about all this tech stuff, the only thing to check before buying a MB is if it have a DSDT for it's hardware. The easy way to search for it is at
DSDT DATABASE

Select your motherboard and if there's a DSDT for your Board and Bios Version.. so go on... or else, buy a motherboard that fits this requirement. I recommend Gigabyte MBs

ps: If you are interested creating a Hackintosh and don't know how to check your bios version or to seek for your MB DSDT at the site above, this article is not for you... there some basics you got to know before attempt to do this... don't get me wrong okay... but give up or study

Well, once the MB is selected... you gotta choose other hardware like Video Card, Bluetooth for wireless keyboard and mouse, bla bla bla...
If you are not sure what to pick... goto COMPATIBLE HARDWARE and buy any of those video cards or other hardware listed. It certainly have support. If you wanna buy something different, you need to seek KEXTS FOR YOUR HARDWARE and see if the board you're buying have any kext for it (kext is like a Windows driver to enable all features from your hardware)

My choice was this:

And especial attention to MB Z68A-D3-B3 bios F5
(if your bios do not meet the DSDT requirements just update the bios with a version that fits



Well that's it... With the hardware chosen let's go to next fase...

Adaptando Painel Digital no Omega

Desmontemos o painel original

peguemos a capa interna de acrilico e instalemos Fitas de Led Branco

Identifiquemos os fios do computador de Bordo e Painel

Liguemos os Leds um ao outro

Acendemos para testar...

Coloquemos uma capa acrílica de um painel digital do ferro velho

Alinhemos para ficar na mesma posição do LCD posteriormente

Como a iluminação agora é com LED e nao da para usar as lampadas do analógico, temos que colocar um acrílico fosco para não borrar a imagem nem manchar com muito brilho o LCD

Colemos o LCD do ferro velho sobre a capa do fundo do painel

Ajustemos os FLAT Cables

Na parte inferior da capa, onde ficavam os orifícios das lampadas, aparafusemos a placa do painel digital.


Após isso, liguemos os LEDs, testando tudo com Multimetro e simulando os sensores com + 12v

Depois de montado o módulo Digital, fica assim

Primeiro teste com todas as funçoes acesas

Teste final. Kilometragem original do carro ajustada, sensor de temperatura, de pressao de oleo, de gasolina, luzes do check control, conta giro e velocimetro... TUDO OK.. hora de montar

Painel Montado e funcionando.... Faltam os acabamentos. Mas isso fica para depois.


FINALMENTE!!!! O VIDEO DA COISA FUNCIONANDO
