i dont think the bootloader will work but there's an iso of charmelon: http://chameleon.osx...d-links-updated

no windows? transmac only works in windows, and transmac can format usb's to hfs+...

transmac: http://www.acutesystems.com/scrtm.htm

I have a dual boot win 7 and ubuntu setup right now so I can use either.. Do I need to burn charmelon and the installer image to seperate hfs+ partitions on the usb? Ideally, I would like to create a scenario where I can triple boot win mac and ubuntu. My other thought was to use the iATKOS you suggested and restore it to a bootable USB through ubuntu through the technique described here. Not sure if that will work or if it will even be easier than what you're suggesting now.

Okay new idea! Format a ~ 8 gig usb to hfs+ with two partitions (one large one small). Install clover from PC using this technique http://cvad-mac.narod.ru/index/0-5 to the small partition. Then, I already have a Mountain Lion .dmg image on my hard drive, so use transmac to burn this image on to the larger partition on the USB? My only concern is if this would be the same as "restoring" a .dmg to a usb through disk utility. Assuming this works, I plan to use clover configurator once osx is installed to obtain the proper boot options and kexts as necessary.

 

As of right now this is my plan and I would like to have an experienced user verify that this is a reasonable choice of action before I decide to finally commit to this endeavor!

first of all get vmware workstation and get mountain lion virtual machine image.

 

When u install u can follow  this guide to make installer.

Or even better install latest mountain lion 10.8.5.

Dont use snow leopard since its old by now and u have good hardware to run latest mountain lion.

 

Another think its to go with better bootloader like clover.

I want to seek out your advice because you first put me on to clover and so you would probably know more about this issue than I do. I installed clover to a USB through bootdisk utility. I restored my .dmg to a separate USB through transmac. However, when I boot off my clover USB, clover can see my Windows and Ubuntu operating systems, but it cannot see the USB with my restored .dmg as a bootable option. Is there any advice or any way you would know to go about solving this problem? I feel like I'm so close!

 

Update! Tried using chameleon and the error was 'no kernal cache file ' /system/library/caches/com.apple.kernelcaches/.87061851' found

 

can't find /mach_kernal

 

whats that mean??

check it out so I realized I wasn't using the InstallESD.dmg file I was using the overall 10.8.5.dmg file. From what I've read I'm pretty sure you're supposed to use the InstallESD.dmg. So I restored that image to a USB and tried again. Still can't see it in Clover and I tried running it in Chameleon, this time no mach_kernal problem, but after I select to boot from the OSX install USB, a large string of code flashes by the screen as if its loading, then the system suddenly reboots!

 

I tried running in safe mode and verbose mode and ignore cache mode but all of them have the same result of just rebooting my system... frustrated.

Yea thats an issue also I did it through Bootdisk utility. I don't currently have access to a Mac. Do you know any other way to burn chameleon from PC. I've tried exhaustively to get VMs to work with no success.You think getting a different version of chameleon could be a solution here?
