In Topic: Where are the Linux-based OSX installation helpers?

16 November 2013 - 03:33 PM

You sound like you are against the Hackintosh installation process being made easier and that it should only be possible for those with a deep understanding of OSX's internals. That's called elitism. I've already done 100's of hours of searching, reading and experimenting on this - easily - thank you v. much!


Sounds like you'd ban Chameleon Wizard, MyHack, iATKOS etc and you'd have a raging fit if anyone ever released the sort of tool I'm after!


Do you like wasting your time and damaging your hardware experimenting trying to do OSX installs? I just want to install and run the OS with minimum fuss.


You really aren't gonna go far on this board if you insult one of its most respected members.


Start installing OS X by either vanilla or myhack and post to this board and people will help you through it.


Just want to install OS X with the minimum fuss? Go buy a Mac.


Why has no one created an OS X tool that runs under Linux? If your so concerned about it why don't you?

Use 3 paritions, 1 for OS X, one for Linux, one for Data. You can easily move your home directory for the OS you use the most to the Data partition and that can be a different file system (e.g. exfat).

1. I've never seen a hackintosh die due to it being a hackintosh.

2. AFAIK all modern CPUs will reduce their multiplier to prevent overheating (SpeedStep).


Here's what I think (Disclaimer: I have zero experience with RehabMans kernel) and it's assuming that your CPU is actually the problem.

I would hazard a guess his kernel isn't reading your P-States (or he has some hard coding for frequency / multipliers going on), it's very possible you've unknowningly overlocked your CPU and due to the custom kernel that's loaded SpeedStep hasn't been able to lower the multipliers to reduce temperature thus burning it out.

I'm pretty sure this would void your warranty but I don't think the company would be able to prove it unless you told them.


Even if that wasn't the case you should have been installing VANILLA. Once you've installed OS X then you can change things since you can monitor hardware easily.


I'll take a look at his thread / kernel tomorrow if I get time...

1/2. In theory you should be able to use Chameleon Wizard (I haven't tried it myself to actually install chameleon). It may be that the chameleon installer requires a newer version of OS X

3. boot0hfs should be fine.

4. AFAIK nothing. Enoch is a renown member of the community & the chameleon team. From what I understand the Enoch revision simply means he compiled it personally (I may be wrong on this though).


If the bootloader fails to install / doesn't boot then it can be installed manually with relative ease, see here (and give me a shout if you run into any problems):

Heh no problem, have done that myself before (Part 6.5 in the guide will fix the folder layout).


There's some very minor differences between Mavericks & Lion/ML which may not be ironed out of the forum post (updating it as we speak) so use the attachment rather than the post.
