Hackint0sh Patcher for DiskWarrior 4
For many years, DiskWarrior has been the premier Macintosh utility to repair disk drive directory structures and the ﬁles in them. If Disk Utility cannot repair your drive, then DiskWarrior can probably do the job.
Unfortunately, on a Hackint0sh, DiskWarrior sees the MBR partition scheme as something that needs to be repaired. Allowing DiskWarrior to make this repair would render the Hackint0sh unbootable. In addition, DiskWarrior has no feature to allow the user to select which repairs he wishes to make. The user can choose to make all repairs or no repairs.
This patch to DiskWarrior only prevents it from repairing the MBR partition scheme used on a Hackint0sh.
According to Alsoft, DiskWarrior 4 has some inherent restrictions:
• It cannot repair the booted volume. The same restriction as Disk Utility.
• It cannot repair the volume on which the running DiskWarrior application is located.
• Alsoft highly recommends that DiskWarrior should not be run from a booted Leopard volume to make repairs. DiskWarrior can repair Leopard volumes.
