I get a memory low disk space message since its only 20GB for the virtual OSX. Will I be able to fix this once I have it native?


I don't understand the reasoning behind that question.

The low diskspace warning pertains to the OS X installation on your virtual machine.
Therefore it is completely unrelated to the actual installation that you are about to perform.

Although obviously, if you choose to install OS X onto a 20GB partition you will see the same error message once it starts running out of space.

[a couple of posts were deleted here]

In *whatever it is that you have*, find InstallESD.dmg and doubleclick that, as the guide says.

The fact that you have an ISO not a dmg means you've pirated the OS, come back once you've paid for it and we'll help you

Yeah that too.
I will however throw him one last bone because I feel bad for him.

2.B. Creating the OS X installer on the USB drive
1. Show hidden files in finder by opening Terminal (in utilities) and typing (copy / pasting) the following:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
then
killall Finder

You must do 2.B.1&2 first. If you've done it you haven't done it correctly - try again.

Yes, that was the problem. This was not in the guide when I first tried this tutorial. thank you.

I managed to install ML after going trough video card/blacks screen issue with my 8800gts 512.
Everything works except my network card, integrated RTL8111. The controller is correctly identified in system profiler, driver is loaded but there is no ethernet connection in system preferences, and i cannot add one. Tried many drivers, same thing. Tried a PCI Dlink card, also with 8111 chipsed, same thing.

Any ideeas ?

hey i have a question, i followed the guide exactly as detailed but it still won't boot when i first try to boot it on my pc (laptop). Here's the link for the -v diagnostic message http://imgur.com/YD22u I was supposed to use the GM file for when i went to that site to download the files to make it dual boot on one hard drive right? when i tried to boot it, it didn't give any errors, it just got stuck on this hyphen "-" and nothing would happen. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks. I also tried following the boot0 error guide even though that wasn't the issue and it still won't boot.

All works perfectly on my HP DV6990el. After the 2° reboot, i've used migration assistant to keep my old account (iatkos l1, another hdd usb with all working kext) and the old kext works perfectly! i've only a problem. contacts and reminders wont work (like a crash at the start of app), imessage tells me "the server has reported an error during the elaboration of registration. try again" (translated by italian, sorry for my english :'D).

Ther's a way to fix this problems? i can open a thread if u need more configurations and kext about this pc :-)

Thanks.

If you are using a patched kernel (90% of HP laptops require one to boot with all cores working), then Apple services will stop working. Revert to the vanilla kernel, set up Apple services, install patched Mountain Lion kernel, and reboot.

HI, thanks for the guide
i'm not able to start the installer via USB, it's just not recognised as a boot device during POST
should i start it again and choose MBR instead of guid, even if it doesn't freeze or what? it seems like chameleon hasn't been installed properly..
Thanks

Screenshots of the error are always helpful.
