In Topic: Weird iPad connection issue

12 March 2014 - 12:05 AM

Did you try another sync cable? Did you try another computer (or device that has USB power)? My iPod did exactly just that, and I discovered that the cable was the issue, despite not showing any signs of wear/damage.

In Topic: Can't boot into my OSx86 partition

12 March 2014 - 12:00 AM

From my experience, once you install Windows (on the same drive, separate partition) as OS X there isn't much you can do. Gringo is correct in saying that Windows is corrupting the boot loader. In 8 years, from XP to 8.1 I have yet to find a solution.


My suggestion is to back-up the OS X partition and start over. When you install Windows on a separate hard drive ALL other drives containing other OSs must be disconnected  (optical drive and drives used for storage are ok) or Windows won't install. Often the installer will give a warning prompt shortly after the process starts and exits. If it does there is a good chance that the HDs containing other OSs will get corrupt. The same goes for installing on the same HD but different partitions.


Here is what I have always done. I gave up on trying to fix things years ago and just went with a fool proof method.

1) Format the HD into 2 partitions; 1 HFS+ the other Fat32 (or NTSF)

2) Install Windows FIRST on the 2nd partition

3) Install OS X on partition 1

4) Install Chameleon/Clover/Chimera


You can try to install Clover on the EFI partition (of the hard drive or from USB) and boot from there. Of course you need an UEFI motherboard for this to work. On that note, if you have the know how you can try reformatting the EFI partition, as well as setting the OS X partition as active. There are many guides here with the info you need.

Yup, me too.  -_-

In Topic: speedstep

Nothing has changed from ML. Myself, I can not get SS/Turbo to work unless I sleep the System once; try that and see if speedster kicks in. Make sure you have an SSDT (and DropSSDT=y in boot.plist) if you use Chameleon, or Generate PStates/CStates if you use Clover. No guarantees, but that worked for myself.

In Topic: Mavericks - to be locked down (in the future)?

All is well here: GA-Z77X-UD5H, Radeon 7950HD (Crossfire). Patched AppleHDA, FakeSMC, and Intel/Atheros and my System is running smooth. No pop-ups, no errors (bdmesg or console). The only issue I have encountered thus far is having to sleep the System once to enable SS/Turbo to work, just like all of the DP versions.
