  2. Hi all! I have converted MBR hard disk to GPT (all partitions are saved). Then I have done adding a lot of space to my small HFS+ partition from OSX Installer Disk Utility. Then I have rebooted and my Chameleon not showing OSX, only windows available and flash (if connected). Boot flag is presented on the partition, so I don't know why Chameleon not see this slice. Please help me to fix this strange issue ?

    Patched OSInstaller framework to allow installation on MBR partition. OSInstall.mpkg patch is not needed for MBR installation, it's patched to remove minimum RAM and supported platform checks. credits go to oldnapalm
  5. Hi all, it is my first time at this site and first topic. I have an exper laptop and i want to use Windows and mac on same laptop. I built Wİndows 8.1 Pro and now i have Mavericks 10.9.3 set up in my flashdisc. After set up mavericks, i should set up Clover Cofigurator for boot menu. But my hard disc that installed Windows and Mavericks is MBR. Clover Configurator is for GPT disc. I have tried to convert my harddisc to MBR but Windows couldnt install. To sum up, how can I set up Clover Configurator 3.19 in MBR mode to do something on my harddisc? (my English is not so good. i am sorry because of this )
  6. Hi! ? This is my first time on this forum and I'm not used to using Macs so if I make a mistake, don't bash me. I have a modified OSInstall.mpkg and I want to replace it with the original file in Mac OS X Install ESD. I tried deleting the original file but I receive an error message that the file cannot be deleted. I checked my permissions and it said that I had the right to read and write files yet I cannot delete the original file. Any ideas? Feedback is appreciated. Thanks! ? ? ?Uploaded with ImageShack.us? ?Uploaded with ImageShack.us ?
  7. Hello to all. These are few considerations and help requests on my hackintosh travelling, when finished I will post it into the guide/tutorials. First of all don't ask me how to do something because I'm really new to hackintosh world (I'm studing it) and surely your questions will end in silent answering. Hope you all don't mind but I'm really just "copying" what I see from other users exp. --- My questions are at last lines of this thread, would you like to help me? --- With this guide I've done a Lion 10.7.3 installation into an ASUS N53SM-S1096V using these kexts<-reference color. I did a dual MBR boot Windows 7 (pre-installed) / Lion 10.7.3 with U{censored} on USB pen drive. Steps (I could make mistakes so keep an eye on updates on this thread) done are: My laptop came with a 750GB HD splitted into 3 partitions: 25GB recovery / 279GB OS Windows / 394GB DATA so I used the DATA partition to Lion. Better if you erase it (NOT the HD!) if you got files into or maybe you would like to shrink it. Create the U{censored} USB pen with Lion installation inside. Copy the Lion MBR patch files on the USB pen drive<-reference color. This patch is exential for the dual MBR boot! Copy the kexts into System/Library/Extentions folder. Keep in mind that I found that this is not the standard use of kexts. (Can't you see it? Google "Terminal show hidden files finder") Copy the others Extra folder's files to the USB's Extra folder. Change BIOS specs. Enable AHCI (default) - Change boot options and select USB (Plug pen drive before turning on the laptop) Save and restart. U{censored} starts, select the pen drive, I've got some errors because I didn't noticed to delete the sound kext. If you got errors use boot flags as written here. I used PCIRootUID=0 -v and everything gone well. (Do NOT use the USB3 port) After a lot of verbose there will be the Lion installation. Please consider to initialize the partition made before in Win7 for Lion -> HFS+ Journaled File System. (How? Look up the toolbar "Instruments|Disk Utility") Install Lion. After restart (Keep the USB pen plugged) select the new Lion partition showed up by U{censored} at boot. It will start the setup which will gone bad because it will say that "Before you begin there is no keyboard connected to your computer. Please connect your keyboard". This is the solution (#This are comments do not type it#): Reboot into U{censored} USB pen drive Lion installation. Look up, toolbar "Terminal" and type cd /Volumes/INSERT-YOUR-LION-DRIVE-NAME/var/db #Press Enter# touch .AppleSetupDone #Press Enter# resetpassword #Press Enter# Will appear a window, select your Lion drive and change root password. [*]Now reboot and at U{censored} boot option screen select the Lion drive (NOT the USB pen) and it will start, log on as root (type "root" as user name) and go to System Preferences and change your username or create a new one. [*]Now you got Lion running! ++++ DSDT ++++ DSDTSE / DSDT Editor ++++ KEXTS ++++ Under Win7: I run DSDTSE and DSDT Editor they worked fine. DSDT has no errors, 10 warnings, 10 remarks and 2080 optimizations under Windows, I'm attaching the extracted DSDT. MY DSDT IS HERE IF YOU WANT TO HELP ME. Under Lion: I run DSDTSE, doesn't work problems on software path. DSDT Editor worked after I installed the Java update for Lion. DSDT has no errors, 10 warnings, 10 remarks and 8 optimizations under Lion. *** CONSIDERATIONS *** Brief list: Overall seems very quick Lion. Trackpad works with the two fingers scrollfeat. Display has high resolution I feel that Lion uses the Intel HD3000 graphic card. *** PROBLEMS *** These are problems added as they come. Network: On System Preferences the Ethernet is enabled and seems functional but when I plugged the RJ45 it is still on "No connection available", not working. Also NO WI-FI. Untested web camera. No soundcard. *** TO DO - QUESTIONS FOR YOU READER *** Understand if above problems can be resolved with the MB{censored}. One day there will be Nvidia 630M support... NO BOOTLOADER YET INSTALLED. I cannot boot without the USB U{censored} pen. How can I install a bootloader, is it possible to do with Chameleon Wizard? Chimera or Chamaleon? Or what? Can somebody help me to understand where is something wrong into DSDT? Why my network cards don't work? UPDATE 1: I decided to reinstall the LION 10.7.3 11D50 with no luck, it sounds very weird to say but I got problems on booting from the U{censored} install, sometimes it runs sometimes it stucks. (Tried with different USB pendrives) Once a time I got it to run and I installed Lion (webcam was working when installation ask me a profile picture!). I couldn't get the trackpad and the keyboard to work so I used USBexternals one. My problem now is that I cannot boot Lion again... While having the "boot=0 error" I restarted the U{censored} installation, in this way I could resolve the boot error thru Terminal but I can't go on. There is something wrong but I don't know where. I'll keep you update as soon as I resolve the issues, best regards guys. UPDATE 2: Finally I arrived to the installation screen but I'm stuck on language selection window as the keyboard and mouse don't work (just the cursor is moving also using external mouse and keyboard don't solve). NOTE: I decide to reinstall Lion because: USB pendrives plugged kernel panic - No wireless networks revealed/sensing - Mic always on causing feedback from speakers. WHAT I'VE DONE SO FAR after the steps posted above in my first post, with this configuration **My laptop came with a 750GB HD splitted into 3 partitions: 25GB recovery / 279GB OS Windows / 394GB DATA so I used the DATA partition to Lion.** : - Installed U{censored} Lion 10.7.3 11D50 on USB pendrives (two for better testing) - Booted with U{censored} original pendrive with flags (-v) get: "Still waiting for root device" - Booted with U{censored} original pendrive with flags (PCIRootUID=0 -v) get: "Still waiting for root device" - Booted with U{censored} original pendrive with flags (PCIRootUID=0 -v UseKernelCache=Yes) get: KernelPanic - Booted with U{censored} original pendrive with flags (PCIRootUID=0 -v -f) get: "Still waiting for root device" - Changed the /Extra content with the files linked on my first post booted U{censored} get: No theme on bootloader just prompt lines with selection options, (-v) run and stuck on language window with no mouse and keyboard. UPDATE 3: QUICK UPDATE:The user Vishwas is woking on it. I stop the work as I'm in need to have a fully working machine for my university courses so I decided to remain with WIN7.* On my calendar I will start again to study DSDT and Kexts editing on July so be patient or try it yourself. I will contact Vishwas to update his results in this thread. Also if you have luck installing Lion on MBR partitions in this laptop please post it here! Stay tuned ;-) THANK YOU ALL! More to come...
