Hi guys,
I'm following you since x86project starts a lot of years ago.

I'm writing this post because I have some problem booting the OsX ML 10.8 I installed on my PC.
I followed a guide in the wiki (http://geeknizer.com...hackintosh-usb/) to install the OS without problem.
Just created the ML Bootable Usb using ###### in a VMware Snow Leopard and installed on my machine without additional Flag Option on booting.

My hardware list:
Mobo: Asus P5E - firmware 1102
proc: Intel q6600
ram: 4gb Corsair Dominator 800Mhz
Graphic: Ati 7950 2Gb
HD: Hitachi 2,5" 500Gb 7200rpm

After the installation booted again with the usb and installed ######.
Fortunately I installed ML with no problem and i'm very happy about that, but NOW I can boot the OS only using the USB dongle.
When pc starts the os doesn't boot reporting a lot of strange characters (not kernel). The kernel doesn't load.

any suggestion?

sry for my english :)

Update:

I installed again the OS from scratch and tried again installing multi-beast.
I noticed that ###### didn't install correctly reporting "installation failed", so I tried to manage the problem and at the end I found a solution.
The problem was the Kext-cache and some kext: IOUSBAttachedSCSI in my case... you can find interesting threads googleing ###### installation failed. I would not report linksto other forums.

In any case, after I have successfully installed ######, i cannot boot to OSX ML in my HD.

this is a photo of the problem.

I think it could be because of your ati card have a look at the 10.8.3 update thread http://www.insanelym...083-all-builds/ you might get your card working. What boot loader you using you booting with?

I'm not sure it's related to the ATI card.
I heard something about OSX and Ati 7000 series, but I suppose it's not the case.

I'm using Chimera bootloader from Multi--beast.

Looking around I see that the problem is related the the new 4K sector HD.

and much more...

tried all of these without any luck.

Someone can confirm that the problem is caused by my ATI ?

@Meknb thank you anyway, i really appreciated

Hi there,

I feel your pain, usually installing OS X with video cards not yet fully supported by  can be problematic sometimes. Do you have an actual Mac or just the VMware equivalent you used? If so there is a nice trick I use when installing OS X that seem to remedy most of my headaches when running into problems like this one :graduated: . Just let us know what your status with the machine is after trying everything else, maybe my “trick” can help out :)

Bless.
