I re-started choosing MBR instead of Guid as partition table of my USB stick, now it is recognised and chameleon starts.
Next problem:
This white-pixeled screen is what i get instead of the main window. Note that there's no kernel panic (i'm booting with cpus=1 busratio=20 -v -x, already tried with GraphicsEnabler=Yes / No PCIroot=0 / 1 )
it also gradually changes colour and the fan start to push quite hard

edit: solved deleting all of the AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* kexts (might this be helpful to anybody)

That makes sense, it's an airport card. It will not work with wireless cards that aren't recognized as "Airport".

Sorry, I was a little too fast on the trigger there.

Hi,

about the problem iCloud, AppStore etc., it is clear that the Ethernet driver must be loading.

We users with HP laptops, we usually have another problem:
we need a modified mach_kernel to fix Lapic issue, and we noticed that the first time, for access on Apple Services, we have to use the original kernel (using cpus=1 flag), and then, when everything is working, then...changing the kernel!

I'm going to create installers for DV6-7 6000 and 7000 series (Ivy + Sandy), and I thought about doing this in PackageMaker:

Hidden choise for Ethernet kext:
- Choise for installing Ln2Mac s RealtekRTL81xx' kext
- running a postinstall script to delete com.apple.airport.preferences.plist and networkinterfaces.plist and com.apple.boot.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration.

.......all this having already replaced the modified kernel with the installer.
...hope all be fully functional after the first reboot!

Do you think this is enough, or know more tricks about kernel issue for Apple online Services?

Thanks in advance

Micky

It won't partition even though it says it will but it will format it for a MAC

Sorry, maybe I misunderstood ....

you want to turn your MBR disk to GUID partition table, booting from Windows, which is inside the same disk?

You can transform easy other disk, but you have to format the entire disk before! correct me if I'm wrong.

It is easier if you use your OSX Installation disk or (USB stick, if have) using Disk Utility?
Or simply, you can patch the installation, to install on MBR (google),...no?

Well here is the dilema In my MacOSX disk utility when I try to partition during the process I get a power down machine message and it never completes the partition which is why I thought if I partition it using Windows for the specs in this guide I can have that part done correctly.

It may not matter too much, both are bootable and your USB will get reformatted again during the dmg restore anyway.

Hello. I've tried several different ways of setting up my USB stick, but every time I boot into it I get a black screen that says "Operating System not found" I set the stick up following this guide, and I'm confused as to how this could of happened. Do you know how I could fix this?

This is a bios message from your PC!!! Not OSx warning!

you have set your bios to find the usb stick?
... no bootloader installed into it?

Write your Hardware in signature, please

Hey, thanks for the reply. I've added my info to my signature, I do have my bios set up to run from the usb stick. I've followed the guide, so I don't know how I wouldn't have a bootloader on there. Like I said, I'm lost haha

Chameleon bootloader is not included in OSX!

Chameleon-2.1svn-r2064.pkg.zip

You need to install him, pointing to your USB stick

........assuming that the rest is ok! :)

That's true, but it is one of the steps in the guide I think. I'll try it. Hopefully it works!

there is only one Partition on the USB stick. My VM says that the ML install files are on the USB stick, but windows won't even recognize that the stick is plugged in (when VM is off) I've even tried using MacDrive to find it, but the stick doesn't appear

Try opening Computer management in windows, navigate to disk management and see if the drive is present. Explorer won't recognise it since its OS X formatted.

If windows can't see it at all then start again, at the formatting part ensure your formatting the whole drive not just erasing a partition and this time use MBR instead of guid.

If you've installed chameleon to the USB (make sure you select your USB as the destination when installing it) you shouldn't see the OS not found error unless your BIOS has decided it doesn't like the usb

Oh, okay. Thanks. I'll try remaking it as an MBA. When I format the drive, I just select the drive, click Format and then 1 partition. That does the whole USB stick right?

Select the drive, click the "partition" tab then select 1 partition
