Hello everybody.

My machine is ASUS N76 with core i7-3630QM, integrated graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4000, discrete graphics: NVIDIA GT 740M.

I've resized my windows 8 partition to free ~40GB of space. I formatted my usb-stick using "HP Low Level Format Tool". Then I deployed an HFS installation image to usb-stick, using R-Drive. When I'm booting from the stick, I get several errors. Here's a screenshot.

So the questions are:

1. Could you help me with this installation method?

2. If not, could you suggest a guide on how-to install OS X (preferably from usb-stick) on a GUID hard drive, dual-booted with windows 8?

 

P. S. I also would like to mention that my notebook has UEFI, not BIOS

If you are using Mac OS X, use Myhack to restore the ML Disk Image to your 8GB> Drive.  Just like christ1111 said, try and mess around with the boot flags try "-v -x" "-v -f" Also what distro and version of OS X are you using?

Hello everybody and thanks for replying.

christ1111, Could you please clarify, how can I add any "flags"? I mean, where to put this line of code?

tannerstell, I am not using Mac OS X. I am using Windows 8. But I guess R-Drive is kind of "Myhack" software you mentioned. I already restored an installing image to the usb drive, but if "ML Disk Image" is something else, could you please share a link? And the same question about flags. Where to put them?

christ1111, The flag didn't help, it freezes even earlier than before. (you can see this line on the screenshot, it says "[ PCI configuration end, bridges 5 devices 13 ]")

The original readme for the image says something like:

(Sorry for poor Russian-English translation)

 

1. When you booted from the usb drive choose MLionUSB
2. Start the installation
3. After the installation boot from usb drive again and choose the installed OS X
4. Then, after successfeul boot, install Chamelion

 

***For the successful boot you need to install Chamelion and use YOUR EXTRA

 

So the questions are:

1. Do I need Clover instead of Chamelion because I have UEFI?

2. Do I need anything else according to the fact that I want to have an option of booting Windows 8 (dual-boot)?

3. What's extra (.kext file?) and how can I make my own?

2. Do I need anything else according to the fact that I want to have an option of booting Windows 8 (dual-boot)?

3. What's extra (.kext file?) and how can I make my own?

1. The important difference between the two boot loaders (Clover and Chameleon) is UEFI support. Clover can be used with UEFI mode (the default mode Windows 8 uses). Chameleon can only work when BIOS is set to Legacy mode (or older pre-UEFI BIOSes). Clover can also work in Legacy mode, but the main point with Clover is to use it in UEFI enabled PCs.

 

3. Extra is a special folder used by the boot loader to store settings and/or additional kexts. Kext +- = driver in Windows world.

 

BTW, here we have a Russian subforum...
