HELP: Asus P5K (with P5KR bios) and Yosemite: ethernet won't work

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I've installed OS X Yosemite with MacPawn USB Key. After installation I've installed OS X Yosemite Chameleon V3 ('cause Clover won't work) selecting boot loader, VoodooHDA and FakeSMC (as I've done with Mavericks). Everything works, except ethernet. I know this problem because my mobo with Mavericks an ML needs AttansichL1eEthernet.kext (that is the same for P5K and P5Q). I've tried to install the same one that I've used with previous OS Xs but it won't work, so I look for others packages/kext on the web and tried them with the same result: won't work.
Previously, when i tried to install the same kext with Clover boot loader, the OS not start (must boot from USB key), but the ethernet work.
I think that may be a parameter of Chameleon, but can't find a solution. 
Is there someone who can help me?

Did you try to load the kext you used to use in Mavericks AFTER the system has already started?


Also - in System report -> Networking - is your Ethernet adapter listed?

Thanks for the answer.

Yes, I've done. The kext is not included in any installer.

The ethernet isn't listed in System Report -> Networking

I can't understand why during multiples installations I've tried, only one time it works (few days ago). That time, the boot loader (Clover) won't work, so I decide to re-install with Chameleon, and now is the ethernet that won't work.

If I boot from other disks (with Mountain Lion or Maverikcs and Chameleon) the ethernet works fine.

Solved adding kext-dev-mode=1 in org.chameleon.boot.plist (to let OS see uncertified kext) using MultiBeast.

Now every things seems to work.

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
