  1. Laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p - 10.9 - Mavericks

    Oh, I'll follow that guide for Chameleon first, before redoing the USB and reinstalling the whole thing, thanks. Also, I didn't think it would be necessary to write my specs on this thread dedicated to Lenovo y510p. Mine has i5 4200 & nvidia 755m , which I don't really have any hopes on activating.
  2. Laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p - 10.9 - Mavericks

    I can't boot without Safe Mode, it just hangs after DSMOS has arrived. I'm thinking it's the bootloader?.. I honestly don't know how to configure Chameleon, if you don't mind, could you post the exact link you've used and a few pointers on what exactly I need to tick in the settings. So far, out of all my OS X installations, I've used preconfigured usb/dvd disks so this is actually the first time I tried vanilla, I created my USB with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url].
  3. AMD - still waiting for root device

    Roger, I guess I'll have to patiently wait to get a usb stick. In the meantime, I can install it on my laptop, it has a intel processor, will it install the amd kernels as well? I could move the hard drive from the laptop to the pc after installation, I'm just dying to try it out!
  4. AMD - still waiting for root device

    In that case I'll actually have to buy a usb stick, could that be the only problem?
  5. I just saw today that Niresh released Mountain Lion (10.8.2) for AMD so I thought I'd try it. I have tried installing it in the past but I've simply accepted I can't run it, but now seeing the AMD tag gave me some hope. So upon launching the installer with the recommended command for AMD kernel, I am stuck on 'still waiting for root device' I have used the commands that he provided in the guide "debug=8 ahcidisk=1" and had the same result. I have the following hardware: MB: MSI G45-770 AMD Phenom II x4 925 Asus gtx 460 2x2GB DDR3 I'm trying to install it from a DVD So I did the following: - Enabled AHCI mode - Disabled AMD Cool n Quiet - another power option, something with ACPI if I remember it right.. set on S3 other things worth mentioning: I have removed 2gb ram, leaving only one RAM piece My Dvd drive is on IDE alone and set on master I have only 1 HDD on SATA I removed all the USB's and used keyboard and mouse on PS2's I've seen in other places to use -V cpus=1 busratio=20 but this didn't solve anything either Anything else I can try? Or is it that my Hardware combination won't be able to run this at all? I would be willing to try OS X Lion, but I don't think I'd want to go with something older than that
