Kakewalk 4.5 is out. Download it from http://www.kakewalk.se
Please let me know if you have any feedback or if you run into any issues.
Also, a big thanks to everyone for supporting this project!
I love your project it made installing OSx real easy. I got everything backed up so i'm going to try installing ML 10.8 when it come's out later today. Let's hope that works.
Also I'm running a GA-z68x-ud3h-b3 board 16 gig's of ram a core I seven cpu, a ATI radian 6870 and a OCZ vertetext 120 SSD.
thanks so much.
Great to see a new version. Thanks for all the effort you put into this awsm project. Kakewalk for ease of use wins hands down. Can't wait for custom versions! Chapeau mrjanek
An update howto would be very much appreciated! There's a lot of users out there running Lion and Kakewalk 4.0. Instructions on how to upgrade to 4.5 and ML would help a lot!
I seem to get this error when running it in a virtualized copy of OS X Lion.
I just installed via the instructions on my EX58-UD5... It's on my test partition and it seems to be very stable. A few things I learned in the process that might help others:
Is it going to be possible to enable airplay mirroring using an i7 with a 9800GT? I am trying to figure out if it's hardware limitations, or if it is the defaults set by Kakewalk...
5star, the feature depends on Intel QuickSync technology. Your i7 will have to be at least Sandy Bridge. It has nothing to do with the GPU you are using.
Where did you get that "utility" for your motherboard? I have the same one...
Is Ivy bridge ok with Kakewalk? It doesn't look like Kakewalk discriminates against any processors according to the compatibility page.
I just realized that the socket on the i7 930 is different than the Ivy bridge. I would consider switching my motherboard, though to step up to the Ivy Bridge, but I would like another 6 RAM slotted board, and I know Mr Janek gets credit if we buy through his affiliate link. Mr Janek, do you want to give a link to what you would recommend as I upgrade for best Mountain Lion compatibility?
Cannot create a usb stick, nothing happens for hours. Tryed to create from 10.8 and 10.7.4 dmgs. 4.1.1 works perfectly with 10.7.4 dmg. When trying to use 4.5 only few seconds my usb stick is flashing with LED, then nothing.
Cant install: before showing the install screen it turns white and only cursor is there.
@Mikodzi I posted a solution for this here:
gamer12, this problem can be related about your BIOS version (perhaps related to overclocking). Check in the GigaByte website about the lastest version of your board's bios and update it, BUT BE CAREFULL DOING THIS, download the manual and go step by step. (Do this under your own risk)
It happened to me, try to install and I endup in a boot loop, because my bios version was F3 and the lastest version was F13. After the update no boot loop.
mrjanek ......I need help to re-create ML usb stick.
Hey capper308, I got the utilities over at OSx86. They are a great resource for all motherboards/graphics card combinations. The people over there (whom probably overlap with this site...) are trying to build driver and os support for many peripherals and add-on cards. Check them out. You need to register with the site in order to download anything.
Unsuccessful install with fresh mountain lion image from mac laptop.
I need help with boot0 error, i tried many ways, 2 usb sticks, the new kakewalk file from mrjanek and still CAN NOT create the usb installer. Does anyone have a way to fix this???
I have a problem with installing ML. Booting from USB makes a Reboot until I changed GraphiksEnabler to Yes.Installing works without Problem than. But no it Reboots when I start from Hard disk. No difference if graphiksenabler is yes or no.My Hardware is a I5, Gigabyte H67M-D2-B3 8Gb Ram with GeForce GT 240. This works fine with Lion and Kakewalk 4.x. Also don´t run when I Install Kakewalk 4.5. please helpJoerg
mrjanek,here kakewalk fails for the first time. kakewalk crashes (!) after having chosen the lion (10.7) image and clicking "ok" after admin pw typing. trying this on a usb stick (16gb, mac os extended journaled) from a macbook with snow leo.also found kakewalks "app storish" behaviour (mandatory web connection) somehow uncomfortable. i would appreciate a legacy download corner for previous kakewalk versions...
Latest News ;)
I can't even get the 4.5 app to run. Tried it on 3 Macs. "Application has quit unexpectedly" error.
oops - just read minimum system requirement is Lion.
Need to remove support for gigabyte h55-usb3 drive from kakewalk 4.5. It does not get past boot0 error.
Hey everyone, I'm trying to do a clean install of ML via Kakewalk Z68x-ud3h-b3, but when booting from usb I just get.
you need to add booth file to your hardrive with terminal. Follow this guidehttp://www.macbreaker.com/2012/02/hackintosh-boot0-error.htmlAlso may need to set graphics enabler to YES
thank, Waldmac, for a moment I was panicking :)
Janek: this is odd. I made a 10.8.0 installer using Kakewalk 4.5.0 and it booted perfectly. Now I've updated my image to 10.8.1 and have tried to create a Kakewalk 4.5.0 installer USB from 10.8.1, and it won't come up. The initial boot menu appears, but when it starts booting, the display blanks out and never returns.
set graphics enabler to YES
Why does kakewalk 4.5 want to accept incoming connections when I use it to make a bootable USB? My firewall gave me an option to allow or to deny this request. I can see outgoing requests to ping a server to make sure it is up-to-date, but what's up with the incoming requests? Anyone else have their ML firewall up and have got this request upon making a USB?
Kakewalk 4.5 will not boot, i get boot errors. Then i used iboot to boot up and then load the kakewalk mountain lion thumb drive, it makes it past the gray screen where it loads all the files and then goes black and restarts computer as it crashed.

The kakewalk software allows you to create bootable media from which you install OS X on a pc.
I understand this - but have I received the whole file?
Try downloading it again, deleting the old download first, or just try using it. The only version available is the one you downloaded. There is no "full" version.
I've created usb flash drive with 10.8.2. MoBo Gigabyte EX58-UD4P, VGA radeon 4870. Booting from flash drive starts, even change my screen to full resolution, but then stops and key no blinking anymore... I have only gray ML background picture with no comments on screen. Can i see the log during booting?
Same problem as Shadow_Cluster with powercolor radeon hd 4870 1gb and ga-ep-45-ds3l...
not sure what happened in the new version, but my older 10.7.2 stick that i first used works perfectly. the new 4.5 with ML 10.8.X does not install for some reason.
Any Idea what happened? Is Kakewalk alive and we'll see something here?
10.8.x is not working, new motherboards not added... Are we done here?
