Hi,

I have a Hackintosh with system specs as per my signature. I am making progress but one of the issues I seem to be stuck at trying to boot from the hard drive.

I installed the OS using ##### USB and can boot into Mac just fine using that. However, using either Chimera or Chameleon, the computer reboots just before the GUI is displayed. It seems to go through all the loading of kexts etc. but reboots at the end. Cannot boot using -x or -s. GraphicsEnabler is set to no as my ATI card doesn't like it but the new one should behave better.

Any ideas what I can try or find out what is causing the issue? Or maybe some other bootloader?

Cheers,
Alex

A bit more information.

I have Windows 7 installed on hard drive 1 (MBR) and Mac on hard drive 2 (GUID). Does it matter which drive I put the bootloader on? I can always change the BIOS to boot from a specific drive if it needs to boot from the GUID drive.

If anyone is interested.... the issue was missing FakeSMC kexts in /Extra/Extensions folder on the hard drive. Just copied the whole folder over from the USB and it's working.
