what happens if chameleon-usb-stick breaks

Recommended Posts

can someone please post his usb stick backup ?

slowly i get insane about all this sh***

nothing works for me !

i try to build a chameleon hackintosh since 2 weeks now. without success.

i can´t use chameleon rc1 or 2 installer, just get the "install failed" message.

the dr. hurt installer for rc3 work not right.

lots of files are missing and it won´t boot into my XP install !

would be great if someone would post his stick backup.

maybe i can get this working for my system.

OK

exactly like in the post i´m unable to install any chameleon version correctly.

That´s why i try it with Boot Think.

I install Boot Think on my USB stick.

than i copy the files out of bootfiles.zip to: boot files -> Darwin folder root

then i copy my kexts to: sl kext -> Darwin/System/LibrarySL/Extensions

now i restart.

Boot Think Boots up fine, i can boot in OSX and Windows.

But the Extensions doesn´t work in OSX !

there is no sound and i can´t shutdown/restart osX => KERNEL PANIC !!!

i also try to make an extension cache file with mkext tool and copy it to USB sticks extra folders,

but this didn´t work, too.

This is the point were i suck....

plz help !

@AsereBLN

i´ve got a new usb-stick which is "build-in" to use on internal mobo-usb-port, but I always get the message "Resource busy" in Terminal when I try to write my .img to the stick by typing:

dd if=Chameleon.img of=/dev/rdisk3 bs=4k

the stick is already partitioned by osx as GUID_partition_scheme Apple_HFS.

I can read and write to the stick...........

Where´s my mistake ?

I guess you have to umount it first. It's also a good advice to unmount it, before you make the backup with dd. Try first a normal unmount, if this fails force the unmount with -f. In the Terminal:

> sudo -s
Password:
> umount /Volume/<USBSTICKNAME>
> dd if=Chameleon.img of=/dev/rdisk<N> bs=4k

or with forced unmount:

> sudo -s
Password:
> sync
> umount -f /Volume/<USBSTICKNAME>
> dd if=Chameleon.img of=/dev/rdisk<N> bs=4k

Then remove and reinsert the Stick.
