Hi all,

 

Been a few years since I've done a hackintosh build, my old Dell Mini 9 is still plugging away :)

 

So, I've picked up an old Dell e4310 latitude and have been trying to get OS 10.8 installed.

 

So the install works fine after the following chances.

 

1. removed the following from System/Library/Extensions

 

ATI = ATI*
Intel = AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB*
nVidia = GeForce* NVDA*

 

2. used the following boot options

 

-x -v -f graphicsenabler=no cpurootuid=1

 

3. new HFS partition GUID

 

4. change SATA in bios to ACPI.

 

It seems to install fine but when I reboot the cursor just flashes in the top left hand corner!

 

Any ideas what to do.

 

Thx.

 

ps: Apart from my dell mini 9 (with its puny hard disk) I dont have access to a MAC.

Boot from the USB you made using F8 and choose the USB stick.

Then you just spam the arrow keys so the bootloader gives you an option to put in boot flags.

Select the drive OSX is installed on, and try those"

 

-v GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 npci=x3000 

Everything is case sensitive.

Update:

 

I can choose to boot from the USB stick and then choose the hard disk and it boots up correctly.

 

But a normal reboot to Internal HDD just stits there.

 

I suspect i've got to do some post install steps, any ideas?

another update:

 

I've found the "Choose Start Disk" utility but when I choose the HDD and click Restart (and confirm restart) it doesn't restart :(

You need to install Chameleon onto your HDD to boot from it. You can download it here, http://www.insanelym...ameleon-22-svn/

You removed the Intel graphics kexts. Where it is hanging is where the graphics loads. You need to enable your graphics using those kexts. You will be able to boot with -x as dcai777 suggested.

OK,

 

So I tried booting with the following options:

 

-v -x GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 npci=x3000 

 

And it still hangs.

 

I created another boot USB without deleting the Intel drivers via transmac (same boot options) but it hangs as well...

 

Thanks for all your help so far.

Did you try with GraphicsEnable=Yes ? Also try the Clover bootloader and inject Intel Graphics with it. If that fails you may need to make a DSDT for your PC.
