In Topic: Cannot boot without -f flag

Hmm... with the new FakeSMC, sound, shutdown and the network seems to be OK...but again, only when starting with the -f switch. Without the -f switch, the bootup is much quicker but no network or shutdown.


kvonlinee, what do I do with the kext utility software? Run it to rebuild cache and fix permissions?

Hi rlf and thanks for the reply. 


Been doing some digging around and found this. The Hack boots fine without the -f flag if I remove AppleHDA from SLE but obviously no sound. I've read somewhere that a new FakeSMC (5.3) might solve it, so I installed that. Result: success! Now, I don't need to use -f flag... but... Sound stopped working and so has the Ethernet card and so has the shutdown (it hangs just before the unit is supposed to power down with "MACH reboot" in console). I have fixed the sound by using VoodooHDA but Ethernet still doesn't work, nor does it shut down properly.


So... I went back to the old FakeSMC (4.2.0) and everything is as before. Ahhhhh! Fix one thing, 10 others break... Fun, fun, fun!


Mind you, it boots a few seconds quicker with the new FakeSMC... which is nice.

If anyone is interested.... the issue was missing FakeSMC kexts in /Extra/Extensions folder on the hard drive. Just copied the whole folder over from the USB and it's working.

A bit more information.

I have Windows 7 installed on hard drive 1 (MBR) and Mac on hard drive 2 (GUID). Does it matter which drive I put the bootloader on? I can always change the BIOS to boot from a specific drive if it needs to boot from the GUID drive.

Would this work on Mountain Lion?
