In Topic: On Chromebook Acer C720P

Commenting further -


I am trying to get it to work from a USB.


Windows 8.1 and 10 can do so, so theoretically it should work with this Haswell Chromebook.


I singled out that it is an USB issue for El Capitan as the Hard Disk is USB but also that it chokes on


Still waiting for root device


instead of:


USBMC identifier (non unique), etc.


Any ideas to move on from this?


I have the DSDT for the CB, if it can help?

In Topic: Cloning MacBook Air to make a Hackintosh

Not as obvious, probably the advice to install from scratch is better.


Installed latest OS X (10.11.2) again over this old install, then carbon copy clone over it the Macbook Air partition seems to have finally fixed all issues :)

In Topic: samba shares not coonecting

Correction: It solved itself as follows:


Reinstall with latest OS X El Capitan over the old copy from the Web Store using a real Mac.


Use Carbon Copy to clone the real Mac onto the result.


Samba shares and Security settings restored.


Why this worked? not much of a clue, bar fixing some things through this lengthy procedure.

I don't think this is solvable, without Apple SIP no Samba, done on purpose by Apple. With Apple SIP, no Hackintosh.

do you have your permissions setup correctly? what are you trying to connect to, a windows pc?


Yes using Kext Utility and Disk Utility First Aid.


I can't access even shares of a MacBook Air.


My aim is to access smb shares of a TP-Link smb server.
