In Topic: AppleYukon2 troubles on a Dell Inspiron 1545

The problem is that the drive doesn't show up in the Disk Utility. The only one that does show up is the USB drive. I did format it to be an HFS+ drive when it was plugged in to the USB adapter.

Also, partway through that last install, the screen went white (except for a patch around the cursor) and stayed that way for more than an hour. After a hard reboot, I tried to boot to the hard drive, which didn't work.

Finally, the resolution is also incorrect, but I can live with that for now, assuming I can fix it later.

Well, cool. Thanks. I got in to the installer now.

If it's ok with everybody, I'll just keep asking questions.

I can't use my keyboard nor touchpad on my laptop in the installer. I have to use a cheapo Dell keyboard and Microsoft mouse, both of which work in the installer. I don't even know what to look for to make that work.

Wifi doesn't work. Which is fine for now, but I'd like to get it fixed at some point.

Finally, my hard drive isn't showing up in the "Install OS X" screen when it's in the computer. I plugged it into an external SATA adapter and that works well enough, albeit slowly. But at this point, I have a laptop turned desktop with a small part of OS X on it. Yay.

Yes, that seems to get passed that particular problem. So, that's cool.

But now there's another problem! You can see it in the attached image.

Here are the options I used to install Chameleon to my jump drive using Enoch-rev.2039.pkg.
1) I set the Destination to the correct drive.
2) Customization:

Chameleon Bootloader

Standard

Modules

Resolution

Settings

General Options

EthernetBuiltIn=Yes

Kernel Flags

Verbose Mode

Ignore Caches


Sorry for the poor image quality. I can't exactly say I was in a well-lit room.

I downloaded iATKOS L2 (yeah, I know it's not Mountain Lion) and am giving that a shot, but the Disk Utility isn't able to properly write to my jump drive for whatever reason. I'll try again later. But for now, I'm writing BaseSystem to my jump drive again.

I followed this tutorial: http://www.ihackinto...-pc-hackintosh/, almost to the letter (it's kind of ambiguous in places). This is my first Hackintosh install (I'm a Linux guy), so I just took my best guess as to what kind of options Chameleon needed. I'll document them shortly.

Thank you for your suggestion Here To Help. I'll give that a shot.

eep357: I tried a number of boot flags, all ending up with the same result: an error and a stack trace.

c0ke: I'll try and put up the picture of the KP soon. Probably when I tell what options I used.

If anybody sees any better ways to do things, please let me know. I'm open to suggestions.
