OS X has no native support for PS/2 keyboards and mice. Place these kexts in /System/Library/Extensions of the USB stick: http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=2336
Use the free trial of MacDrive (http://www.mediafour...oducts/macdrive) if you can't write to the USB.
I still have my VM to modify the USB. Still, I shoved the three kexts in there, tried booting without flags and with -x -f -v, I even disabled the "Plug n' play OS" option from the BIOS. Nothing. It seems those kexts work up to 10.7, so I'm not really surprised.
I might get a USB mouse and keyboard later, but I rather spend my money on something else, like an actual video card. Any other suggestions?
I would like to thank everyone in the forum, regardless of me not succeeding just yet. You guys are really supportive. Kinda like the Linux community. You rock.
EDIT: scratch that, I found working kexts
! But now, now I have full access to the installation media...which means...now what?
I tried opening Disk Utility and formating a 100 GB NTFS empty partition in my drive to HFS+, but it wouldn't let me, unless I formatted the whole drive
. Which I'd rather avoid, but I can live with it. Also, my drive didn't show up among the drives I could install OS X to.
However, my main concern is GPT. If I'm going to nuke my partitions and start all over, I'd go GPT, but I read it bugs real bad when used in conjunction with BIOS. Does anyone know something about this? If you tell me GPT and BIOS work fine, I'll just back up my data and format.
