Yosemite Preview Application Problem

18 October 2014 - 09:12 PM


i have successfully installed Yosemite, that i downloaded from App Store, on my PC, but something strange happened.

When i wanted to change size of a .jpg picture using Preview app the final result, to my surprise, was a blank picture, totally white!!!! :(

I just want to know if anyone is having this problem, that leads to the conclusion that it is a bug, or if it was an installation problem?


no EFI folder on root

18 August 2014 - 07:50 PM

                     my system is a bit outdated but it can handle all i need

                        Asus P5QPL-AM LGA775

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450

4 gb ram 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

quad-core 2.3 GHZ

64 GB SSD disk and 3 more HDD disks




i had mountain lion installed with clover bootloader on my SSD disk, so i just created a thumb drive using myHack method and i installed Mavericks over my Mountain Lion disk...all went well and all my settings were preserved including kexts...in the end my clover boot was replaced by chameleon...next i installed clover bootloader and i could boot to mavericks, all went smooth, but what is puzzling me is that there is no EFI folder on the root, there is  a EFI-backup folder.

There is also a file org.chameleon.Boot.plist which is also inside extra folder and a SMBios.plist file.

Shouldn't be at the root an EFI folder? I am not an expert on hackintosh, i handle quite reasonable the installation processes and some things but i need help and some advice here, should i re-install clover? A clean install is not on my plans cause it will erase my disk and there are too many things i can not put back.

i could create a partition and make a clean install, but like i said there are too many things i can not put back on the new installation, mainly torrents, too many.

​So, my friends my doubt, is it ok the way  my root is or should definitely exist an EFI folder? And what should i do? keep the way it is now, re-install

clover, or any other thing?


my root


thanks for your time and advices

can not update iPhoto and iMovie

13 August 2014 - 01:02 AM

well, after upgrading to mavericks 2 updates appear on App Store, one for iPhoto and the other for iMovie, but when i click to download i got this message "This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled."

I know it is because both apps are not legit, but is there any workaround to solve this, like editing some file  or something like that?
