HDD: 500GB SATA Internal I am running Snow Leopard and Lion under OS X, Windows 8 (64 bit), Windows 7 (64bit) and Windows XP (32 bit) under Windows, LinuxMint 64bit Mata) for Ubuntu. Credits: I am no technocrat and have no experience in programming but just a geek who loves to experiment with gadgets. I have to thank every programmer in the Hackintosh community and Ubuntu community for providing FREE, easy installation tools, driver files, software and installation guides for non-techno geeks like me. Without their unprecedented effort and dedication to the community this would have been impossible and we would be at the mercy of buying expensive macs. A big thanks to google for providing such a great search engine. Disclaimer: Though every care has been taken to prepare this guide accurately and explanations are kept to simple, you will use it at your own risk. I will not be held responsible if anything goes wrong and you end up corrupting or loosing your data or if your laptop becomes non-functional. LET’S GET STARTED PRE-REQUISITES: If you are starting from an existing Windows setup, backup all your data to an external drive as this procedure will completely erase your hard disk. If you have a spare SATA drive, that’s the best way to start. You will need retail installation CD’s or USB drivers of all the Operating Systems you intend to install and drivers CD’s. Keep them ready and at arms length. Download and create a GPARTED bootable CD. You will need a working windows computer to create one. Download it from here. If this link does not work then search “GPARTED download?? in google. Download latest version of EasyBCD from here and save it to a pen drive. You will need it later for restoring Windows MBR. Windows, OS X and Linux installation internal issues are not covered here. It is assumed that you are well aware of installing various versions of Operating Systems and troubleshooting problems. INITIAL SET-UP PROCEDURES AND PARTITIONING Predetermine how much space you want to allocate to each Operating System. This is a very important step. Write down on a piece of paper in advance as to how much space you want to allocate to each OS and Data partition. Mine is a 500GB SATA (actual size 465 GB) drive and this is how I partitioned. 1st - 30 GB for OS X Snow Leopard 2nd - 30 GB for OS X Lion 3rd - 30 GB for Windows XP 4th - 70 GB for Windows 7 5th - 70 GB for Windows 8 6th - 200 GB for Data 7th - 35 GB for Linux Please note that OS X partition should always be at the beginning of the partition table and you can keep Linux to the end of the table as it is the most flexible when it comes to the location of bootloaders. First set BIOS to boot from CD / USB drive whichever is your preference for installing Operating Systems. I suggest you stick to CD ROM. You may need to press delete key or F2 button to invoke BIOS. Boot from GPARTED live CD and accept all default settings. Be patient, it will finally boot into its GUI interface and will detect you hard disk and its exiting partition table. Delete all existing partitions and apply changes. Now you will have a single partition of a completely unformatted hard disk showing its full capacity. I am using MBR partition table for partitioning as my motherboard BIOS does not support EFI. MBR has a built-in restriction of a maximum of 4 primary partitions. But we need a total of 7 partitions, 2 for OS X (Snow Leopard & Lion), 3 for Windows (XP, 7 & 8), 1 for Linux and 1 for Data on a single hard disk. So, to overcome the MBR limitation, first create three primary partitions, one for OS X, second for Windows XP and the third for Linux in GParted. Give proper labels to partitions for easy identification later during installation. Following is my way of allocation. 60 GB for OS X at the start of the partition. (Labeled as OS X and formatted as hf+) 30 GB for XP (labeled as Windows XP, format ntfs). 340 GB as Extended Partition (unformatted to be altered later) 35 GB for Ubuntu at the end (Labeled as Linux formatted as ext3) Once the partition structuring is done, recheck everything, apply the changes and exit GParted, remove the CD and shut down or restart the laptop. WINDOWS XP INSTALLATION Boot with Windows XP CD. On reaching the setup screen, select the partition labeled Windows XP to install. You may reformat the partition if you want but not necessary. Follow the usual procedure to install Windows XP. Windows XP will boot into its default desktop. You can install drivers later after installing all other Operating Systems. Open Disk Management. To do this easily, Click “Start?? and Click “Run?? command. Type the following into the Run box “diskmgmt.msc?? without the quotes. And press “OK??. Else you can also open Disk Management going into opening Control Panel and selecting Performance & Maintenance / Administrative Tools / Computer Management / Disk Management. Once Disk Management is invoked, the partition table created with GParted can be viewed here. Now look for the Extended Partiton you created in GParted. It will be seen here as “Free Space??. Right click on “Free Space?? and select the option “New Logical Drive??, click “Next?? (Logical Drive will be selected by default) and click “Next??. (Allocate the correct space you have planned for Windows 7, very important step) Click “Next??, use default option “Assign the following drive letter??, click “Next??, select options as format “NTFS??, “Default?? and label volume as “Windows 7?? using the keyboard and tick “Quick format??. Leave “Enable file and folder compression?? unchecked and click “Next?? and then “Finish??. Disk management will format, be patient. Once formatting is over, under the partition table you can see a new partition “Windows 7?? and free space. Repeat the above procedure with the free space partition to create two more partitions for “Windows 8?? and “Data??. (Again allocate the spaces correctly) For Data partition, choose FAT32 format as it can be read by Windows, OS X and Linux. It can be later changed to “exFAT?? as it is better than FAT32. Now you should be able to see 5 partitions under Disk Management. Remove you XP installation CD and shut down the laptop. WINDOWS 7 INSTALLATION Boot with windows 7 installation CD in the drive. Please ensure that you have set first boot to CD Drive, else BIOS will boot Windows XP from hard disk. Even after setting BIOS to boot from CD Drive, after BIOS detects your OS CD it will wait for 5 seconds for you to press any keyboard key to boot from it, else it will boot from hard disk. When you reach the install screen, select the version (mine was Windows 7 -Ultimate), click “Next??, instead of “upgrade option?? select “Custom advanced??. Select the Windows 7 partition and start Install. Follow the usual procedure and install Windows 7. On final reboot, at the bootloader screen, you will notice that you have 2 Operating Systems labeled “Earlier Version of Windows?? and “Windows 7??. The earlier version is Windows XP. Windows 7 will be set to boot as default OS. Let it remain and don’t change anything now. Boot Windows 7 and if all goes well you should be able to boot into Windows 7 desktop. Open Diskmgmt if you want to check the partition table. Don’t touch anything here. Quit Diskmgmt and shut down the computer. You are ready to install Windows 8. WINDOWS 8 INSTALLATION Boot from Windows 8 DVD. Enter Windows key and on setup screen choose “Custom Advanced??. Select partition labeled “Windows 8?? (format as NTFS if you want, this will erase Volume Label which you can insert later) and start installing Windows 8. Go through the steps to complete windows installation. Once you have successfully installed Windows 8, it will boot into a beautiful bootloader with a blue background listing all your three windows installations. Boot into Windows 8. Open Disk Management and if the Windows Volume labels are missing then name them again. You can do this by right clicking each partition (windows XP, 7 and 9), opening the Properties panel and keying in the name in the blank space. If you intend to have more two OS X operating system, you need to do additional stuff. (Please note that you cannot do this in Windows 7 or XP, as it will not allow more than 4 Primary Partitions) Run “diskmgmt.msc?? to open Disk Management under Windows 8. You can view the partition table. Right click on the partition you created for OS X (it will be at the beginning) and delete it. Right click again on the “unallocated space?? and select “New Simple Volume??, click “Next??, Allocate the space you need for the first OS X partition (I allocated 30GB for OS X Snow Leopard). Format it as FAT32 (do not use NTFS) and label volume as "Snow Leopard" or whatever you want to for your OS X. Once format is over, you can see your Snow Leopard partition followed by unallocated space. Repeat the procedure to create more OS X partitions and format them as FAT32. I created one more of 30GB and named it OS X Lion. Now under partition table, you can see a total of 7 partitions (assuming you used 2 partitions for OS X) which was what we wanted to achieve at the beginning. You are now ready to install OS X and Linux. OS X SNOW LEOPARD AND LION INSTALLATIONS. I am not covering issues related to installing OS X on PC machines. I presume your laptop supports Mac OS X and that you already have the necessary tools and driver files and any issues therein will not be addressed here. Mac OS X prefers GUI partition table for installation and will not install on MBR partitioned drives. So we need a mod CD to enable installation into a MBR partition. I used Nawcom MOD CD for my laptop from here The other options are tools like My hack 3.1 : Link U{censored}: Link You might need to register to avail these downloads. Also before you proceed, keep ready in a pen drive all your hackintosh specific kexts, bootloaders like Chameleon, Extra folder, any DSDT file that you use and tools like myhack, Chameleon Wizard, Kext Utility, DSDT editor etc. I am giving below the Snow Leopard installation procedure for my laptop (Dell Inspiron 6400 – hardware specifications given at the beginning) Boot with modCD. Keep the original OS X Snow Leopard Retail Install Disk ready (Do not use install disks that came with Mac laptops, it will not work). Wait till modCD boots completely. It will show all your windows partitions. Eject the modCD, insert the original OS X Snow Leopard retail DVD, wait for 10 seconds and press F5. The OS X install DVD will be detected and selected by default. If you want to see what happens during boot, type –v to boot in verbose mode and press enter. A lot of text will flow across the screen like the old DOS days. Be patient and follow any onscreen instructions. The installer screen will appear after sometime. At the installer screen, choose language and click “Next??. Click on “Continue?? and proceed. You will now see an install screen showing hard disk partitions. Linux partition will not be visible. Click the “Utilities?? menu at the top and select “Disk Utility?? Now select the 1st OS X partition (will be seen here as New Volume) that we created in "Windows 8 Disk Management". Erase using the format OS X Extended (Journaled). You can give the volume label now. I named it as “Snow Leopard.?? Repeat the procedure with the next OS X partition (again labeled as New Volume). I gave the volume label as "Lion". Quit disk utility and select Snow Leopard partition to install. You may customize the installation according to your need. If your installation went off successfully, the system will reboot. Remove the Snow Leopard DVD and insert the modCD and boot again from it. After modCD completes booting, you can see Snow Leopard partition along with windows partitions. Select Snow Leopard partition, use –v flag to boot in verbose mode and press enter. I used additional flags like arch=i386 and cpus=1 along with –v. If the installation goes without any problem, you will reach setup screen. Follow the onscreen instruction (create an Administrative Password when asked for, don’t leave it blank) to boot into Snow Leopard Desktop. Remember to note down the password as you will need it while installing bootloaders and kexts. From the pen drive transfer the kexts folder, Extra folder and other tools to the desktop. Transfer myhack to applications folder and kext utility to Utilities folder in Slow Leopard partition. Eject the pen drive. Install Chameleon Bootloader (I used Chameleon v21.svn r1814). Run myhack 3.1 to install “Extra folder?? and kext utility to install kexts depending upon your hackintosh configuration. All the boot order kernel flags can be embedded in the “chameleon.plist?? file in “Extra folder?? so that you need not use it every time during boot. You may use “text edit?? or Chameleon Wizard to edit “chameleon.plist?? file. Now remove the modCD and reboot directly from Snow Leopard partition to confirm a clean installation without panics and restarts. During the boot process, Chamaleon bootloader will take over from Windows as the default bootloader. We can correct it later. Downloaded your hackintosh recommended combo update and apply. In some cases re-installation of kexts maybe needed as it may get overwritten by the update. So re-install kexts and apply permissions before restarting. If you have managed to reach this stage, you are ready for the next install. If you want to install any more OS X installations (like say Lion), do so now. Use the recommended procedure for Lion installation for your hackintosh. All you need to do is to select the Lion partition during installation. In my case I used myhack 3.1 in Snow Leopard to create a bootable OS X Lion USB flash drive to install Lion. Assuming you successfully installed both Snow Leopard and Lion, your boot screen with Chameleon should show the following partitions with volume labels. Snow Leopard Lion Windows XP Windows 7 Windows 8 The Windows MBR resides on Windows XP partition. So you cannot select Windows 7 and Windows 8 directly from here. They will not boot. Once you select Windows XP, it will boot directly into Windows 8 and you will not able to access Windows 7 and Windows XP. We will correct it later. You can however boot directly into Snow Leopard and Lion by selecting the respective partitions. You can hide the Windows 7 and Windows 8 partitions during boot by editing in “Text Edit??, the chameleon.plist file in Extra folder with the hide partition flag. You can also use the application Chamaleon Wizard to do it. Now is the time to install Linux. LINUX INSTALLATION I used LinuxMint 13 Maya 64bit Mate desktop for this purpose. Download from here and create a bootable disk. Shut down the laptop and Boot from Mint disk. It will take a while, be patient. Screen will go blank, just relax, you can see that the CD is being read. First the cursor will appear as Mint boots for the first time. Then the desktop screen will appear. Click on “Install Linux Mint?? icon on desktop to install Linux. Follow the on screen instructions till you reach “Installation Type Screen?? This step is very important, if you are careless, you could end up erasing your hard disk. Under options, select “Something Else??. You will able to view the entire partition table in the next screen. Linux partition will be the last partition of the drive. You will not be able to see Volume Labels but only Device ID’s and partition types. Be careful to choose the correct partition for Linux. In my case it was the last one with Device ID as “free space??. Select the partition and click on ‘Add??. Allocate the entire space (if you do not want Swap partition), Location “Beginning??, format “ext3?? or “ext4??, Mount Point as “/?? and click ‘ok?? to apply changes. Now click “Install Now?? to begin installation. Ignore the warning about swap space and continue with the installation and follow the on screen instructions. Important: Ignore the “Select Accounts to transfer?? option and continue with installation. Once Mint is installed it will ask for restart. Click on restart and remove the Mint CD when instructed on screen. On reboot, you will now be welcomed by the GRUB2 (Linux) bootloader. It will have the following entries Default LinuxMint Boot LinuxMint Recovery Mode Memory tester 86+ Memory tester serial console OS X 32 bit OS X 64 bit Windows 8 Loader You can safely boot both Linux and Windows from here. However you still cannot boot into Windows 7 and Windows XP. OS X could sometimes give a problem as this boot may ignore any kernal flags that you included with chameleon.plist file. Depending on whether you are booting OS X in 64 or 32 bit select your boot for OS X. If you find the GRUB2 bootloader too cluttered, then you can remove entries by editing GRUB2 menu. Boot into Linux Mint and do the following steps. To remove the mem86 entries, do the following Open terminal and type sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/20_memtest86+ Now press enter and key in you administrator password. Next at command prompt, type “exit?? to quit terminal. Next to remove grub recovery option, Double click on “Computer?? icon on desktop, Click on File System, Open “etc?? folder, then the “default?? folder and open the grub file as administrator (right click and use “open as administrator?? option and enter password when asked for). Remove the # sign in front of GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true" and save the file. Be careful not to uncomment (i.e remove # sign) from any other lines. Close all open windows and get back to desktop. Then open Terminal again and type sudo update-grub Now enter password to update. Grub will update changes, wait till it completes and quit terminal. Reboot to check if the changes have been effected. For detailed explanations check this site. Link If you only use 32 or 64 bit OS X then you can remove the redundant entry by editing grub.cfg file located in File System/Boot folder/Grub folder Be very careful with this file, any goof up will render Linux unbootable. You can remove entries or even move them up and down and so on. First create a back-up of grub.cfg file and save it in your home folder. For example, to remove the OS X 64 bit entry from the file, locate “menuentry “Mac OS X (64-bit)......................................................................................................................................................................................xnu_splash /Extra/splash.tga fi fi } Delete this portion from the file and save. Do not update grub like you did before. Just reboot and you will find the OS X 64 bit entry is gone. RESTORING WINDOWS MASTER BOOT LOADER Boot into GRUB2 and select Windows 8 loader to boot into Windows 8. Open “My Computer?? and write down the Drive names for Windows XP, 7 and 8. Transfer EasyBCD (version 2.2) installer file that you downloaded at the beginning from the pen drive to Windows desktop. Run and install EasyBCD. After installation Run EasyBCD. As it opens, it will give an error window about a missing BCD registry file. Click “No?? to open EasyBCD window. Click on “BCD Deployment??, Under “Partition?? select the “Windows XP?? partition. You can identify it from size. Since Windows XP is the only “Primary partition?? in Windows installations, bootloader can only be deployed to this partition. Do no select any other partition. Under ‘MBR Configuration Option??, select Windows Vista/7 and Click on “Install BCD?? button. Click on “Yes?? in the next pop-up window and quit EasyBCD. Now restart EasyBCD. Click on “Add New Entry?? button at the left. Under Type select “Windows 7/8??, Change Name to “Windows 8??, Under Drive select C:\ (this was the windows 8 partition in my case) Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 1 as Windows 8 Again click on “Add New Entry?? button. Under Type select “Windows 7/8??, Change Name to “Windows 7??, Under Drive select E:\ (this was the windows 7 partition in my case) Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 2 as Windows 7 Again click on “Add New Entry?? button. Under Type select “Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3??, Change Name to “Windows XP??, Under Drive select “Automatically Determined?? Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 3 as Windows XP Again click on “Add New Entry?? button. Select Linux/BSD at the top. Under Type select “GRUB2??, Change Name to “Linux Mint??, Under Drive select “Automatically Locate and Load?? Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 4 as Linux Mint Again click on “Add New Entry?? button. Select Mac at the top. Under Name type “Mac OS X?? Change Mode from EFI to MBR (Important) Then click on “Add Entry?? button at the right side of the window Go to “View Settings?? and you can see Entry 5 as Mac OS X. Click on “Edit Boot Menu?? button on the left Here you can select your default OS (windows 8 in this case), change the wait time, reorder the partition position and also delete entries. I reordered the entries as follows. Windows 8 (Default) Mac OS X Linux Mint Windows 7 Windows XP Exit EasyBCD and reboot. You will now boot into Windows Bootloader showing entries as follows Windows 8 Mac OS X Linux Mint Windows 7 Windows XP From here you can select to boot into each OS directly. If you have more than one OS X installed, then they will show up when you select "Mac OS X" to boot. Boot into each operating system to ensure that all of them boot independently. THAT’S IT. YOU NOW HAVE A PERFECTLY WORKING BOOTLOADER TO ACCESS ALL YOUR INSTALLED OPERATING SYSTEMS
  2. Hi, I tried to do a triple boot but I have a problem to boot on ubuntu. When I choose Ubuntu on clover I get stuck on clover's logo. I can boot to Windows and Maverick without any problems. ? I have clover in UEFI 2850. When I install Ubuntu I choose to install boot loader to my ubuntu partition /dev/sdb5.
  3. This topic still being useful at meaning of troubleshooting issues and usage concept, but for updated instructions on Configuration Files and DSDT Patches, keep your eyes here >?http://clover-wiki.zetam.org/Home ? Hi everyone! I'm here to present you Slice's new EFI Bootloader! Clover v2 It is open source based on different projects: Chameleon, rEFIt, XNU, VirtualBox. The main is EDK2 latest revision.

  4. Hi, ? I'm trying to install N{censored} 10.8.2 on the same disk where Linux is already installed. I got an unspecified error during the installation, at the end of the 19 minutes. Does anyone of you succeded to install N{censored} AFTER Linux? ? Thanks, GiuTor
  5. I would like to add Linux Mint 15 to my HP Probook 4530s. Currently I have Windows 7 and OSX 10.8.4 double booted without any problems. What is the best way to add Linux Mint onto my hard drive without causing issues?
  6. Hai there I'm having troubles getting GRUB2 to chainload OS X. Basically OS X works, Linux works and Windows works, except I can't boot without the Flash drive containing the OS X Installation. My hard drives are like this (in Linux): /dev/sda1 NTFS Windows bootloader /dev/sda2 NTFS Windows 7 /dev/sdb1 NTFS Data /dev/sdb2 HFS+ OS X 10.8 /dev/sdb3 EXT4 Crunchbang I'm using the original Windows bootloader and Windows is totally self-contained in the SSD, as is Linux/OS X on the hard drive. I have installed Chimera 2.0.1 on the OS X partition. I've copied boot0 to /boot/chameleon/boot0 on the Linux partition, as well as just putting it in the root of the OS X partition. I can't get GRUB2 to load OS X. The entry in /boot/grub/grub.cfg is this: menuentry "Mac OS X (on /dev/sdb2)" { insmod hfsplus set root='(hd1,2)' search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root cf082926772bae5b chainloader (hd1,3)/boot/chameleon/boot0 } If I'm correct, the GRUB and Linux mapping is like this: /dev/sda1 (hd0,1) /dev/sda2 (hd0,2) /dev/sdb1 (hd1,1) /dev/sdb2 (hd1,2) /dev/sdb3 (hd1,3) I pretty much tried everything but it always returns "file not found", "invalid signature" or in one case "Chain booting error_" when I try to chainloader /boot0 Any of you out there who have gotten GRUB2 and OS X playing along nicely?
  7. Hello there, I need to install Mac OS X Lion in VirtualBox. I have already read many guides which are saying that you can install Mac OS X if you follow them. But these guides didn't work for me. My configuration is: Motherboard: some Gigabyte, I can look up if needed CPU: AMD Phenom 1100T RAM: 8 GiB Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GT-430 (1GiB) HDD: 1TiB Operating system: GNU/Linux, distro Debian testing with kernel 3.2.0-2-686-pae (32-bit) VirtualBox: version Oracle VirtualBox 4.2.6 r82870 with installed USB extension; fully functional with any other virtual systems The only "Hackintosh" I got working is iAtkos S3 version 2, my file has md5 hash: 55d3aaae14435065b53acb61e3bccae2 This iAtkos works for install, so I normally installed it in VirtualBox, BUT .. I just can't boot installed system. Every time it hangs up on blank black screen and it is using 100% of CPU power (one of CPU cores). So in this moment I am stuck, and I don't know how to continue.. Is there any way how to install Mac OS X Lion into VirtualBox on my computer? Thank you very much for your any help.
