I'm happy to see you having success with this. And I think ppl will highly appreciate if you post your hardware details (notebook model, etc).
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).
- 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:
I will also try to make it work using Clover for UEFI.
Is there any progress with UEFI Clover btw? After altering some config files based on your post I can see something like this as output:
"This version of Mac OS X is not supported on this platform" and laptop just shuts down in 10 seconds. W/o your instructions it rebooted as yours did initially.
My laptop is Asus N550Jv (i7-4700HQ, HD4600, USB 3.0 only), Clover + ML 10.8.4 bootable USB is made with BootDiskUtility. I'm trying UEFI boot. Also I've put patched kernel (mac_kernel) in the same directory as original mach_kernel and use "Kernel=mac_kernel" option - am I doing it right?
BTW additional kexts are in clover\kexts\10.8 (and clover\kexts\other).
