Further news on Toshiba Satellite A75-S206
I have made progress in my Hackintosh skills thanks to you. The outstanding issues are
Sorry I wrote the thing in Word and copied and pasted. Formatting codes also seem to have shown up!!!!! Srini
- GMA 3150 problem. I have searched the Internet far and wide and have not really found a solution unless I missed something. This also seems to be a standard Hackintosh frustration since I found a ton of posts on this with no solution.
- Toshiba Satellite A75-206 hackintoshing project. This is a kind of unique thing. The issue here is that the machine gets hung up on finding a bootmedia.
It says that the
Boot volume – UUID AC96D192-0A41-3118-A4DC-2F69C8206643
Then it proceeds to process
<key>IO Provider class</key>
<string> ID=”1”>IO Resources</string>
<string> ID=”2”>boot UUID media</string>
USBF : 242.856 (0x5603000) The IOUSBFamily was not able to enumerate a device (port # @......)
I am using a USB drive to set up the machine, the same one I am now using for all machines. It gets this far via the USB key then the UUID is the ID for the specific USB key. The port # is the USB port in which the key is plugged in.
Fundamentally it is not finding the same USB key that it is reading from!!!!!!
I am trying to boot from a CD but here also it is hanging.
I can use the Naucom Mod CD and get to the listing of the CD itself and the Windows hard drive. I could prepare the hard drive with the Mac software on another machine and try.
A sane person would probably give up and move on but somehow I can’t let go and want to get this solved.
What do you think?
I loaded the operating system on the hard disc and put it back into the Toshiba. Used Nawcom ISO CD to boot, so no USB involved. The machine is still stuck on looking for root device. It keeps saying it is still waiting for root device.
I think we have conclusively established that this is not a USB problem but something else. It is not finding the root device whether it is the USB or the internal hard disc.
