1. Credits/Sources
Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide:2. Requirements
Here are the requirements:
  • A Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M – This is necessary to install OSX Mavericks for this tutorial
  • A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX Mountain Lion.
    Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended.
  • A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger).
  • A copy Mavericks 10.9 GM – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the Mavericks Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store.
  • 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while.
  • An SSD or HDD to install 10.9 to – For me, I used a 250GB partition to install 10.9 to.
  • An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor.
  • myHack – myHack is a mac program that modifies the official OS X Mavericks installer, and writes it ontoa USB Drive. You can then use this myHack USB Drive to run the Mavericks installer on a PC, myHack works with Mac OS X Snow Leopard and newer.
  • Install_E6320.zipThis ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared.
Note: The files for number 9 "Install_E6320.zip" contains the following files and directory's :
  • Extra - Chameleon Wizard - Kext Utility - ShowHiddenFiles - MyHack - Wireless app2 - Wlan_TP-LINK – Brightness Fix v1.1 – VoodooHDA Prefpane
3. My Specs
My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M Laptop computer with the following specs.
NOTE: A Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor is recommended to use the full potential of OS Mavericks because the on board wifi doesn't work.
  • - Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.5GHz, 3MB cache, Dual Core
  • - 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
  • - Western Digital 250GB HDD
  • - INTEL HD3000 Video
  • - Intel 825xx onboard network
  • - Bluetooth radio onboard (works OOB)
  • - IDT 92HDxxx HD audio onboard
  • - TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor
  • - Apple Magic Trackpad (only @home)
  • - Apple Wireless Keyboard US (only @home)
  • - Apple Magic Mouse
4. Preparing your SSD or HDD for install on a MBR-partitioned drive
If you intent to install OSX86 Mavericks on the same Hard disk as your windows follow the steps below.
For a clean install on a new formatted hard disk go to Chapter 5.
If you’re in Windows 7, you can easily make a new partition on an SSD or HDD via the Disk Management program.
  • Start>Run (or Windows key on your keyboard plus R).
  • diskmgmt.msc (press enter after typing that)
  • Find your drive, right-click on it, and go to Shrink Volume.
  • Wait for it to calculate the amount of space you can make your partition, and enter in your amount (for an exact GB amount, multiple your desired amount of GB times 1024, so a 20GB partition would be 20480MB).
  • Let it make your partition. It will show up as unallocated space.
  • Format the new unallocated space as NTFS and give it a label (mine was Mavericks).
  • Done!
5. Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk (USB)
Start OSX Maqvericks, Mountain (Lion) or Snow Leopard to prepare your USB Flash drive
Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive thru Disk Utility in Mac OS X:
  • Extract the zip file Install_E6320.zip to your Mac OS X desktop
  • If you don't have already installed myHack then copy from folder "Install_E6320" myHack-3.3.1 to your desktop and launch myHack and follow the steps
  • Plug your USB Drive into your computer, and start myHack.
  • Enter your Mac OS X password when the app begins, and setup process will begin.
  • When myHack prompts you, select “Create OS X Installer” and Create OS X 10.9 Install Disk”.
  • Select your USB Drive as the installation destination (mine is named “E6320”).
  • myHack will ask you for the location of your copy of OS X 10.9 Mavericks. It’s usually faster to “Browse Manually” for the Mavericks installation app.
  • myHack will begin to set up your installer USB Drive. Click “Ok” when myHack asks to erase your USB Drive, so that it can begin the setup process.
  • From here, the setup process is pretty automatic. myHack will erase your USB Drive, copy the contents of the Mavericks installer app onto it, and then modify those contents to be bootable on a PC.
  • Near the end of the process, myHack will ask you whether you want to apply the MBR patch to the USB Drive.
  • Click “Yes” if you plan on installing Mac OS X on a hard drive where windows is already installed or “No” if you wanna installing Mac OS X on the entire hard drive.
  • This entire process should take about 10 – 15 minute, though it may take up an hour if your USB Drive is slow.
6. Adding the Extra folder to your USB drive
Now, we need to put the Extra directory for the E6320 on the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC.
  • Start myHack, Enter your Mac OS X password when the app begins.
  • When myHack prompts you, select “Install Extra”.
  • myHack will ask you “Select target volume to run myHack on…”, choose your “myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk” and choose “Ok”.
  • myHack will prompt you “Do you want to use the generic Extra that comes with myHack or specify tour own?” choose “Use My Own” and press “Ok”.
  • Browse to your early extracted “Install_E6320 – Extra” folder on your desktop and choose “Open”.
  • myHack will copy the Extra folder to your “myHack OS X 10.9 Install Disk”.
  • When finished you will see the message "myHack Finished" press ok and Quit to close myHack.
  • Eject all mounted drives (this is not necessary)
  • Eject your USB Drive
  • 10. Done !
7. Bios Settings Dell Latitude E6320
Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OSX Mavericks.
  • Start your Dell Latitude and press F2 to get into the Bios.
  • In the main screen click on "Load Defaults", the bios will be reset to default settings.
  • Go to General - Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting.
  • Go then to System Configuration - SATA Operation and choose on the right for AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing OSX Mavericks.
8. Installing OSX Mavericks from your USB drive
Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install OSX Mavericks onto the partition or Hard Drive.
  • Boot from your USB drive.
  • During boot you will see the message “Eread Bios error” ignore it the USB Drive goes further to boot to the OS X Mavericks Installer.
  • Once you get into the installer (assuming your computer didn’t freeze, restart itself, or get a kernel panic), choose your partition or Hard Disk to install OSX Mavericks to.
  • NOTE : when you install it on a partition skip step 5 - 10 see Chapter 4.
    (If you install Mavericks on the entire Hard disk follow the steps below )
  • In the installer open up Disk Utility.
  • Click on your Hard Drive in the left sidebar.
  • Click on the Erase tab in the middle.
  • Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)” as the format, and give your drive a label (like “MAVERICKS”).
  • Click on the Erase… button.
  • Done close Disk Utility and go further with the installation process.
  • Choose your HDD or Partition to install Mavericks to.
  • The installation process will take about 23 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD.
  • myHack will then ask to remove a couple of unnecessary kext files—click “Yes” for all of them.
  • myHack will also prompt you to install an “Extra” folder.
  • Choose the second option, which lets you install your “Extra” folder.
  • Select the “Extra” folder from your USB Drive, and wait for the installer to finish.
  • When finished remove your USB Drive and boot to your new OSX Mavericks.
9. Booting OSX Mavericks!
Now that everything is finally prepared, you can go ahead and boot into OSX Mavericks.
  • Thanks to myHack, you should be able to boot to OS X Mavericks from your laptop’s hard drive immediately.
  • You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for OSX Mavericks. Go through that process to setup OSX Mavericks.
  • Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet".
  • The installation process will take about 3 minutes.

    - CD
  • Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock on the left corner and type your password
  • Choose by “Allow applications downloaded from: for “Anywhere – Allow from anywhere
  • Close system preferences.
11. Install Wlan driver for the TL-WN725N
The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK.
The software is straight forward and installs without problems, the only thing is that after login the wireless
app starts up and you have must close it every time, therefore I have made a script to launch the program
after login and close it after 5 seconds.
  • For installing the driver go to the folder “Install_E6320 – Wlan_TP-LINK”.
  • Launch the Installer.pkg and install the software, after install you will get the message to restart.
  • Choose restart to restart you laptop.
  • After restart the software will start the Wireless App.
  • Choose you desired network and add it to your profile.
  • Now we can install the login script.
  • Go to “System Preferences – Users & Groups”, go to tab Login Items.
  • Choose the + sign and browse to the folder “Install_E6320” and choose “Wireless App2”.
  • Close System Preferences.
12. Install Brightness Fix
You can install the brightness fix for the E6320 so that your laptop boots with the desired brightness
  • Go to your Install_E6320 folder on your desktop and copy the folder “BrightnessFix_v1.1” to your desktop.
  • You can adjust your brightness settings before install, open the folder “BrightnessFix_v1.1” you will se a file called “brightnessFix.plist” open it with textedit and you will see a value at <String> 0,5.
  • You can adjust the setting from 0,0 till 1,0, when you have set your value save the file ( I have set the value to 0,8).
  • Run the installer to install the brightness fix, after installing reboot your laptop to see it works.
13. Enable find my Mac in iCloud
To make full advantage of you Hackintosh you can enable Find My Mac in iCloud.
(doesn’t work with TP-LINK Wireless lan Nano adaptor)
  • Download the Rocvery HD Updater for Mavrick 10.9 from Mega to your desktop.
  • Open “Recovery_HD_Updater_10.9_13A603”.
  • Run RecoveryHDUpdater.command, you will get a message that it will open a script choose “Open” , and a new window will be opening.

Clover boot1 Error

04 November 2013 - 08:59 AM

Hello guys i have a question about boot1 error with clover on a 500GB sata 4k HDD.

I have searched yesterday the forum but i can't find a good solution for it and tried different solutions.

 

This is my situation and steps wich i follow

  • I am using my entire HDD for OSX and i have formatted the HDD in disk utility as GPT.
  • Then i have installed OSX Mavericks on the harddrive.
  • After that i installed the nessecary kext files for my configuration
  • Then i install Clover on the HDD with the following setting.
    • Bootloader - Install boot0af in MBR
    • CloverEFI - CloverEFI 64-bits SATA
  • After that i reboot the without my USB stick then i get a Boot0af:ERROR (this comes maybe because my drive is a 4K HDD)
  • For the Boot0af:ERROR i start up with my USB to install and in terminal i use the command.
    • dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2 (for chameleon this works and the HDD starts with OSX)
  • After that i try to boot with my HDD then i get the Boot1:ERROR

I have tried several methodes but the are all for the boot0 error.

And when i install chameleon the computer starts up without a boot1:ERROR.

 

What have i done wrong must i format my drive with a EFI Fat32 Partition on a GPT with clover ??

I have also done the steps above on a 80GB HDD wich i use as TEST and there i have no problem with boot errors.

I know it has to do with 4K HDD.

Can somebody help me out please.

Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide:
  • Tech Erra
  • OSX86 Wiki
  • InsanelyMac
  • Forum member Pingu from Germany for helping me out with the text changes.
  • And all other forum members who have posted in my topic and helping out the community.
2. Requirements
Here are the requirements:
  • A Dell Optiplex 780 – This is necessary to install OSX Mavericks for this tutorial
  • A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX Mountain Lion.
    Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended.
  • A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger).
  • A copy Mavericks 10.9 GM – If you don’t have a Mac Developer Account, then you’ll find torrents of 10.9 around the web.
  • 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while.
  • An SSD or HDD to install 10.9 to – For me, I used a 500GB partition to install 10.9 to.
  • An PCI Express Video Card – For use with QE and CI Highly recommended. I use a Ati Radeon HD5450 1GB but 512MB or 2GB also works.
  • Install109.zipThis ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared.
Note: The files for number 8 "Install109.zip" contains the following Directory's (4) and files:
  • Kernel - Mach Kernel
  • Kexts - FakeSMC.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext - AppleIntelE1000e.kext - VoodooHDA.kext
  • OSInstall - OSInstall - OSInstall.mpkg (Not used for my configuration because I use the entire hard disk)
  • Utils - Chameleon-2.2svn-r2265 - Chameleon Wizard - Kext Utility - EFI Studio - ShowHiddenFiles
The first 3.kext files will fix most kernel panics en bios reset that you might experience while booting.
The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.9 onto an MBR-partitioned drive ( ! this is not tested, for further info go to insaneleymac forum !).

3. My Specs
My installation was successfully done on an Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop computer with the following specs.
NOTE: A PCI video card is recommended to use the full potential of OSX Mavericks because the on board video card doesn't support QE/CI.
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz
  • 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
  • Western Digital 500GB HDD
  • ATI RADEON HD5450 1GB
  • Intel WG82567LM onboard network
  • Bluetooth USB Cambridge silicon radio (works OOB)
  • ADI 1984A HDA audio onboard
  • HP W2207h Monitor 1680×1050 display
  • Apple Magic Trackpad
  • Apple Wireless Keyboard US
4. Preparing your SSD or HDD for install on a MBR-partitioned drive
If you intent to install OSX86 Mavericks on the same Hard disk as your windows follow the steps below.
For a clean install on a new formatted hard disk go to Chapter 5.
If you’re in Windows 7, you can easily make a new partition on an SSD or HDD via the Disk Management program.
  • Start>Run (or Windows key on your keyboard plus R).
  • diskmgmt.msc (press enter after typing that)
  • Find your drive, right-click on it, and go to Shrink Volume.
  • Wait for it to calculate the amount of space you can make your partition, and enter in your amount (for an exact GB amount, multiple your desired amount of GB times 1024, so a 20GB partition would be 20480MB).
  • Let it make your partition. It will show up as unallocated space.
  • Format the new unallocated space as NTFS and give it a label (mine was Mavericks).
  • Done!
5. Formatting your USB drive
Start OSX Mountain (Lion) or Snow Leopard to prepare your USB Flash drive
Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive via Disk Utility in Mac OS X:
  • Extract the zip file Install109.zip to your Mac OS x desktop
  • Put USB drive in your Mac
  • Open up Disk Utility.
  • Click on your USB drive in the left sidebar.
  • Click on the Erase tab in the middle.
  • Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)” as the format, and give your drive a label (like “MAVERICKS USB”).
  • Click on the Erase… button.
  • Done!
  • Leave Disk Utility open, as you’ll need it later.
6. Preparing your USB drive with 10.9
This part is the most time consuming. Using a USB 3.0 flash drive will help things out quite a bit.
  • Mount the DMG for Mavericks (will be called Mac OS X Install ESD on your desktop).
  • Show hidden files by running the app ShowHiddenFiles in the folder Install109 - Util on your desktop.
  • Click on Show Special Files (leave the app ShowHiddenFiles open we need this later).
  • In the folder MAC OS X Install ESD right click on Basesystem.dmg and choose “ open with DiskImageMounter(default)
  • Switch back to Disk Utility.
  • Click on your flash drive in the left sidebar.
  • Click on the Restore button in the middle area.
  • For the source, drag “Mac OS X Base System” from your desktop into the empty Source box.
  • For the destination, drag your USB drive from your desktop into the empty Destination box.
  • Click on “Restore” and type your password. This process will take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the speed of your flash drive.
  • When it’s finished, you’ll end up with 2 “Mac OS X Base System” drives on your desktop. Figure out which one is your USB copy (you can right-click > Get Info and use the capacity as an indicator), and rename it to MAVERICKSUSB, after that open it up.
  • Once you’ve opened up MAVERICKSUSB (the one that’s your flash drive), go to /System/Installation.
  • You’ll see a symlink for Packages. Remove it.
  • Create a folder called Packages.
  • Open up a window of the original Mac OS X Install ESD drive and copy everything within Packages to the empty Packages folder on your USB drive.
  • Done! 10.9 is now installed onto your USB drive. Now, we need to modify some of the files on it so that it will properly bootup on a PC.
7. Adding the fixed 10.9 files to the USB drive
Now, we need to modify some of the files on your USB drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC.chamnew.png
  • Open the folder “Instal109 - Kexts” on your Mac OS X desktop.
  • Copy 3 .kext files (FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext) to /System/Library/Extensions on your flash drive.
    NOTE: The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.9 onto an MBR-partitioned drive, if you install it on the entire hard disk skip step 3 and 4 an go further with step 5.
  • Copy the OSInstall file to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/, overwriting the file that’s already there.
  • Copy the OSInstall.mpkg file to /System/Installation/Packages/, overwriting the file that’s already there.
  • Go to the root of your USB drive and create a folder called "Extra". This is used to store configuration files for the chameleon boot loader
  • Run the Chameleon installation package from Install - Utils. Make sure to install this package to your flash drive.
  • Choose in the Chameleon setup for Customize, in the customize screen choose Modules – FileNVRAM ( we need this to make iMessage work) after that go further with the install of Chameleon.
  • Run the Chameleon Wizard click the “SMBios” tab then click "Edit". Now there is a list of “Premade SMBioses”. Look through this list and choose for your Dell Optiplex 780 the iMac9.1.
    Click “Save As” and save it to the /Extra folder we created on the USB stick.
  • Choose Tab Org.Chameleon.boot and set the follow options like in the image below.
  • If the settings are like the image then Click “Save As” and save it to the /Extra folder we created on the USB stick.
  • Copy mach_kernel from the Folder Install109 - Kernel and paste it into the root of your flash drive.
  • Lastly, copy extracted folder (Install109) which you have extracted earlier from the zip file to the root of your flash drive. You’ll need this in Chapter 12

TROUBLESHOOTING
14. BOOT 0 ERROR
If you are using a 4k HDD you can get boot:0 error, to solve this issue do the following
  • Reboot system back into Mavericks installer (USB)FLASH DRIVE).
  • Run Disk Utility find the Disk Identifier (eg. disk0s2).
  • Unmount the drive you installed Mavericks on
  • Launch Terminal and execute the following command:
  • dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2

15. App store and iCloud doesn't work
If AppStore and iCloud doesn't work follow the steps below.
  • Open up EFI Studio in folder “Install109 - Utils.” , select Ethernet, select Add Device.
  • On the new window you will see a lot of numbers (Hex String) in the second row.
  • Then clicked write to com.apple.boot.plist.
  • Then go to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/apple.com.boot.plist and select the new key and string it added.
  • Now you can add the Hex Strings to your org.chameleon.boot.plist(com.apple.boot.plist) see Chapter 12 which should be in root/extra folder. When you add it manually make sure it is in
  • <key>device-properties</key>
  • <string>Your Hex String here</string> arguments after that.
  • Remove all network devices from System Preferences/Network.
  • Delete in library>preferences>system configuration> NetworkInterfaces.plist file.
