@ rigs I can't get up and running


Best Answer bman1096, 26 June 2014 - 11:58 PM

Ok thanks again to everyone because with all the suggestions and maybe me not trying everything together I got it on the DG41RQ by setting the BIOS to Legacy, SATA Only and turning on UEFI and then installing Mavericks with Chameleon EFI as the bootloader options and now it botts to Chameleon and then into Mavericks.  I can now finish this quad-boot up and be done after 1+ months of headache after headache.

 

Thanks again to namvan and dcai777.  You guys rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Thanks,

Good question.  How do I replace Chameleon with Clover and I will give it a try?

I am currently backing the whole system up so I can try Clover.  Will post back after I try it which with the setup it says 6 hours to back the whole quad-boot up.

Ok installed Clover and set to MBR and it installed and then I rebooted and get boot1: error and nothing.


Ok little info.  I do have a UEFI Boot option in the Boot section of the BIOS that I have set as Disabled.  Should I have set this whole thing up with UEFI Enabled and tried Clover?  If so I have to start all over again.  Let me know if this should be attempted and tomorrow I will start all over again.

If Chameleon is working for you, stick with it.

The only issue you have now is to set the default boot to the correct partition (drive). I'll get the setting in my BIOS for you when I get home. It was confusing for me as well when I looked at it first times for it was not really related to the boot priority but it did.,

 

A good way to test is

1) Create a usb bootable from here http://www.sysresccd...on_an_USB-stick

2) Make whatever changes you could to you BIOS

  a) Disable all harddrives

  b ) Make any combination you could come up with so that it boot from the USB drive

Once confirm the setting, switch correctly to the harddrive with Chameleon.

Thanks I would love to not have to redo the whole system and instead get your BIOS settings that will make it work as is with Chameleon.  I will wait for your info.

see the screenshots. it will be the AND condition.

I just remember that if you use Clover, it will reset your bios when it hangs.

 

What's your issue with the second box again please?

Ok I will check your settings and mine.  The 2nd box has now only 1 issue.  I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 in UEFI and I can't get a UEFI boot option for it.  I have the amd64 iso on both a flash drive and dvd and neither gives me the UEFI boot option from the F12 Boot Menu on the Z77M-D3H Gigabyte board.  All other OSes are working.


Ok my BIOS is not exactly the same but I have the only boot device is the HDD in Legacy mode and no USB booting enabled so nothing should stop the HDD from booting Chameleon

Ok for fun I tried setting the DG41RQ up with UEFI boot enabled and installed Niresh 10.9 with CLover UEFI and now it boots to a blinking cursor black screen but the Intel Boot Error is no more.  What could be my issue with not getting Clover to come up?

Ok first I want to thank everyone for their help on the Gigabyte board.  I have it quad-booting UEFI Mavercks, 7, 8.1 and Ubuntu awesome!!!  The other rig which is the DG41RQ I am trying to see about getting it to work now that I Enabled UEFI BOOT in the Boot section of the BIOS.  I can get Mavericks to install with Clover UEFI and can tweak Clover with the Configurator in Mavericks but when I restart or boot fresh I get past the Intel splash screen and then get a blank screen with a cursor blinking about 2 lines down.  No Clover and nothing when I press keys so now what could be the issue?  This will complete the setup since I can duplicate the Gigabyte board setup on the DG41RQ if I can get Clover to boot and show.

 

Thanks again and let's complete this thread and I can mark it as Complete and be forever in dcai777 and namvan's debt.

Does Clover work with the F10 key thing?

No either way.  If I do the F10 and select the hdd it goes to the same black screen and blinking cursor.

 Glad to hear 'working'. Nothing more haunted than the box with all stuff but not-working. It could kill your brain haha.

I had the exact same issue with Clover for my laptop. Here is what happened to me

1) Boot from Niresh usb --> Blank screen with blink cursor.

2) Press 1 when boot from Niresh usb --> show me Chameleon --> get in okay

3) Install Clover using its package. Need to select the option correctly: where to install, what fixes. I took no fixes and just enabler my NVIDIA. For Clover, i took the partition with OSX since its my first partition.

 

Its crucial to select correctly where to install Clover.
