In Topic: ML on DELL OPTIPLEX 745 Mini Tower

28 May 2013 - 03:40 AM

tried all suggested but system still rebooting........removed RAM, LEGACY mode with smart reportin off, using the suggested kernel flags, using the latest chameleon 2.2 2238.

what's interesting is after i apply chameleon bootlader to my usb flash drive, how come I don't see a org.chameleon.boot.plist, neither in /Extra nor in root. So I tried to put GraphicsEnabler=Yes and kernel flags -v npci=0x2000 at the boot screen but still rebooting.

also, not sure if this is the cause of the problem or not but when I install windows 7, the reserved partition is installed on another internal HDD that I have but NOT on the OCZ SSD??? doesn't it usually create that reserved partition on the same drive?

If I were you I would use the lastest Chameleon 2.2 2352 ? google it.
I just install on a Toshiba and the old bootloaders didn't work.
at install make sure you choose the right options before click install
grachics, Audio, internet ect

before reinstall Try UseKernelCache=no -F -f -v
also -x if this doesn't I would start over.

my system can't even boot into the installation page. It keeps rebooting after I select my OS X installation usb flash drive.

2ndly, I am using a copy of ML 10.8.2 and not using a distro DVD so I don't have to choose any options at install do I?

probe in bios set the SATA drives to “Legacy” and make sure SMART reporting is OFF

some hard dont like install with 8gb ram, to run first installation need 4 gb

you are installing over

OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD disk??

Yes, that's what I keep reading that it has to be in LEGACY mode and SMART reporting 'OFF'. I tried that before but no go.

I will remove some RAMs and keep trying with a few new suggestions here and see where it will take me.

yes, i am planning to install on an

OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD disk, which already have Windows 7 on there. If it works, I may either partition that OCZ SSD or just wipe out windows 7 to put OS X on but the trouble is I couldn't even get into the installation screen.

thank you.

by magnifico, if have problem your pc restart when start with pen drive , edited your org.plist

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>-v npci=0x2000</string>

Thank you for responding, I'll give it a try and will let you know.

can you tell me which thread 'he' stated that? Also, where can I find the org.plist? the chameleon org.plist?

sorry about that, i am on my new tablet and not used to it yet

i ended up retyping the post again


In Topic: Orinico USB 3.0 card

The appleusbxhci.kext is part of the IOUSBFamily.kext- if you look into the contents of that one, you will find it.
Owise, good luck.

Thank you for responding.

I did manage to find the IOUSBFamily.kext (containing the appleusbxhci.kext) from my wife's MacBook Pro 10.8.2.

I copied the file over to my hackintosh 10.8.2 in S/L/E. Installed first with ###### but didn't work so i installed it again with Kext Utility and it also did not work. What was interesting was that my dual-boot windows 8 recognized that same orico usb 3 card

What did I do wrong? maybe because of my pci-e from my board is not compatible but yet, windows 8 recognized it. Maybe I did not properly rebuild cache but i thought Kext Utility did the job after installing the kext......????

what i noticed is that when I Right-click on other .kexts, i can see an option to View Package but when I do that with the new IOUSBFamily.kext I don't have that option so i was wondering if it's installed wrong.

please shed some lights on me.
