  1. Dual boot Windows 8 and OSX on Asus Q500A

    Here is where it hangs up when I do not boot with the -x flag
  2. Dual boot Windows 8 and OSX on Asus Q500A

    My setup includes the following: CPU: i5 - 3210m RAM: 6GB GPU: Intel HD4000 I followed this guide (http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/) and was able to get everything together using my hackintosh desktop. I can get the installer to boot up correctly using the -x bootflag but my keyboard and trackpad do not work. I have tried to use a USB keyboard but have run into some problems with that. I cannot get my USB 3.0 port to be recognized by the installer. Since I have only one USB 2.0 port which is taken up by my thumb drive I do not know how I can proceed. I tried using a wired Apple USB keyboard which has 2 USB ports on the back and plugged my thumb drive into that but it told me that there was not enough power going to the drive. Any idea how to get the USB 3.0 ports to work? Or should I go back to using ###### since that allowed me to get my keyboard and mouse working?
  3. I just got a new laptop and it is the Q500A. I have a hackintosh as a desktop but wanted to see if I could get it running on this. I can get OSX installed onto a second partition but when I restart and boot back to USB, the Chimera bootloader does not see the Mountain Lion installation I just made. I do not understand what I am doing wrong.
