Hello,

 

I am trying to install OS X 10.8.5 on my notebook

 

Specs:

I have a BTO 17CL58-GTX765 i7 quad

i7 4700mq

8gig ram

nvidia gtx765m

 

I have got a usb 2.0 with OS X 10.8.5 and also clover 2.10 on it.

 

The usb is also in a usb 2.0 port, so no 3.0 issues.

 

Clover starts up and is working perfectly.

After I press boot mac os x from mac os x install usb. 

 

This appears:

After that my notebook just reboots.

 

Does someone has any idea whats wrong?
 


Thank you very much.

delete all graphics kexts from your USBInstaller, then use this flag -f -v GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 or 3000

I deleted all nvda and ati related kexts from system/library/extensions

And I have tried those options. Nothing works...

Have I missed some kexts??

 

Does someone has another idea???

 

Is my notebook compatible?

There is no fakesmc kext. Where can I get that one?

Forgot some graphic kexts, they are all gone now:)

 

 

Edit:

But in Extra/Extensions there is FakeSMC.kext

I'm having exactly the same problem as jhorie described in his first post.

After removing the kexts mentioned in post #4 and placing fakesmc.kext in S/L/E it goes a little further.

 

It says:

Loading drivers.....(lots of dots) and then finishes with a few +++++++++++++++.

Then it reboots again.

 

(some information that might help:

 - my laptop has a new haswell CPU,

 - i'm using a seperate USB stick with the Clover bootloader only (build using BootDiskUtility)

 - the USB stick sporting the Mountain Lion install is USB3)

 

Anyone got a clue about what's causing this?

use the USBInstaller plugged  in a port USB 2.0,  3.0 not work to install, try ML 10.85  and this

 

delete all graphics kexts from your USBInstaller, then use this flag: -f -v  cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 or 3000

Thanks for the quick response.

 

My laptop does not come with any USB2.0 ports. BIOS only has two options regarding USB (Legacy USB Support, which is set to enabled and XHCI Pre-Boot Mode, which is set to Disabled).

Changing these does not seem to affect anything.

 

Also the flag you provided does not work. Still the same "error". Could placing a kext for USB3.0 in S/L/E work?

Or is my only option to burn a DVD/restore to HDD partition? The installation I'm trying to use is already updated to 10.8.5.

I don't think the problem is the usb port because I have the same with usb 2.0

Those changes also seem to have no effect.

Interestingly though, when I removed the OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi driver it does pretty much the same, except after finishing loading drivers it didn't reboot but it said:

"Error exiting boot services, sleep 10 seconds before exit". And then it freezes.

 

Maybe the problem could be related to that driver?

I am having the same problem so far, and when looking for a solution we concluded that the Kernel (mach_kernel) was the cause of this.  Try patched ones.

What should be patched in that kernel then? 10.8.5 kernel should support Haswell.

I will still try though, just in case ^^

Still nothing man.

 

Removed the kexts and entered all the SMBIOS data I could find from the ioreg file (and some missing ones from internet):

                <key>BiosVendor</key>
		<string>Apple Inc.</string>
		<key>BiosVersion</key>
		<string>MBA61.88Z.0099.B00.1305241529</string>
		<key>BiosReleaseDate</key>
		<string>05/24/2013</string>
		<key>ProductName</key>
		<string>MacBookAir6,1</string>
		<key>Version</key>
		<string>1.0</string>
		<key>Family</key>
		<string>MacBookAir</string>
		<key>SerialNumber</key>
		<string>C17KTAM5F5N7</string>
		<key>BoardManufacturer</key>
		<string>Apple Inc.</string>
		<key>Board-ID</key>
		<string>Mac-35C1E88140C3E6CF</string>
		<key>BoardVersion</key>
		<string>MacBookAir6,1</string>

The data is obviously read correctly by Clover.

Small note: this data is placed in config.plist inside EFI/CLOVER/

 

EDIT: I have been messing around a lot, but still no success. I also tried different bootloaders, like Chameleon and Chimera. They both do the same as when using Clover; restarting after loading drivers.

 

Although, before resetting it shows this line:

"failed to find boot signature on bios device 81h"

 

Could it be related to the problem?

I also googled a lot, and there are more people out there that are experiencing this problem. None have seem to found a definate solution though.

Small bump & another update.

It would seem slayer2333 is right. Trying another kernel got me a little bit further, but I immediately got a kernel panic.

That's not weird considering the fact I was using the Mavericks this time with a 10.8.4 kernel.

 

(This one: http://www.osx86.net...ic-fix-kernel/)

 

I will now try to use this kernel with 10.8.4 and report back.

 

UPDATE:

Good news. I can confirm the problem is kernel related. I now managed to boot succesfully into the OSX Installer.

I used an USB3 HDD with the latest Chameleon and 10.8.4 installer (using the custom kernel provided above).

 

Steps:

- In BIOS I had to make sure XHCI Pre-boot Mode was disabled and Legacy USB was enabled.

- Using a smbios.plist with MacBookAir6,1 as provided by iFIRE.

- Using the following kernel flags: -v npci=0x3000 busratio=24 slide=0 cpus=1

- Placing the following kexts in /E/E:

  - FakeSMC.kext

  - GenericUSBXHCI.kext

  - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

 

I will also try to make it work using Clover for UEFI.

But why doesn't it work on 10.8.5 and 10.9? Shouldn't they have native support for Haswell?

 

UPDATE 2:

I was able to use Clover to boot into the DVD, but for some reason the installer language was Russian, so I rolled back to Chameleon.

ML 10.8.4 is succesfully installed by now using the custom kernel! Now to work out the 'kinks'...
