  1. Pandora's Box (Beta1 Testing)

    Removed the Intel kexts and it worked.
  2. Pandora's Box (Beta1 Testing)

    Created my stick today using latest Pandora 1.12 Beta1. I try to install on a Fujitsu Lifebook S760 (Datasheet). CPU: Intel® Core i5-540M, Chipset: Intel QM57, Video: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD (Intel HD Graphics; no HD 3000 or HD4000; 1366x768), Audio: Realtek ALC269, LAN: Intel 82577LM, WLAN: Atheros AR9287, UMTS: Sierra Wireless Gobi 2000 During USB Stick creation I selected the following: 1: USB 1: Mac OS X Mountain Lion - 1 Draging the Stick Icon to the window, selecting the destination (no question for the source, as the OS X ML Installation isin my Apps) 51: MacBookPro7,1 4: 1280x768x32 2: OS X 10.8.3 with Pandora System 8: Laptop, Keyboard+Trackpad + NullCPUPowerManagementet+Disk & AHCI Injector, + Wifi Injector No Recovery partition imo it would be a good idea to add some infos to the page where you have to select the Mac Model, only few people have all Mac HW configurations in mind, I guess I was unsure, after a look at wikipedia, I decided to choose MacBookPro7,1 (13" as mine and same CPU generation according to wikipedia). I also was unsure which resolution to choose, because 1366x768x32, is not in the list. Is there a reason for that, because many laptops use this resolution. I choose 1280x768x32 which is the closest one that is not above mine Boot (with -x -v) hangs: http://d.pr/i/F1PF. I also get an CMOS Reset error, and BIOS options are reset after every boot from the Pandora Stick.
  3. OK will try that today und report. Is there any guide for Pandora? I know that insanlymac is not a fan of the site on which you can get "the beast tools", but I did not know that it is not wanted to mention the tool names. Especially because insanlymac links to OSx86 Wiki in the Header and the guides you find there for 10.8.x all base on this tools...
  4. I added nothing manually, don't know at the moment if ##### does add this automatically during the USB-Stick creation process. (Created the stick according to the guides linked here: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Installation_Guides#10.8.2_Guides) As far as i know FakeSMC and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement are installed by ##### after the initial Mountain Lion setup. How can I add this manually to the installation stick, or check if it is already included?
  5. I created a bootable USB Stick of Mountain Lion 10.8.3 with ##### (where i checked "Laptop Support" during the creation process). Stick should be OK, i already did this one day before for my PC Installation (on a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H with UEFI). The sticks boots, I select the USB Stick at Chimera Boot Menu and then the boot hangs at the screen with the apple logo and the spinning wheel... Of course I tried booting with -x -v and PCIRootUID=1. I also disabled all devices in BIOS that are not needed (disabled LAN, WLAN, Bluetooth, UMTS). No difference, installation hangs with the devices enabled and disabled. I took a photo of the last output i get, when trying to boot with -v (in the photo all devices that could be disabled are disabled, if the are enabled i get a additional line about the LAN adapter "E1000.... MAC-address..." but no error. I can make antoher photo if it helps. Also i get CMOS checksum error after every boot from the Mountain Lion Stick. Hardware of my Laptop: CPU: Intel® Core i5-540M Chipset: Intel® QM57 Video: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD (Intel HD Graphics) Audio: Realtek ALC269 LAN: Intel 82577LM WLAN: Atheros AR9287 UMTS: Sierra Wireless Gobi 2000 Data Sheet: http://docs.ts.fujitsu.com/dl.aspx?id=7aaa9e20-d5e7-4ef1-8907-f8ce45392295 Should i use additional paramaters in the boot screen? Do i have to add files/kexts to the stick?
  6. Thanks for your helpful reply and the links! "all-in-one post-installation tool" sounds great I picked the Zotac GT640 because a GT640 is also part of the actual iMax series, which should makeit compatible. The Zotac GT 640 is cooled passive and i want a passive graphic card (GT650 and higher all have fans). I guess an AMD HD 7750 (e.g. an Sapphire Ultimate Radeon HD 7750) would offer more perforance than an Nvida GT 640, but i expect more trouble with an AMD graphic chipset, because apple does not use it (yet). An AMD HD 7750 is also not listed in the HCL you linked above.
  7. CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x 8GB DDR3-RAM Kit GPU: Zotac GeForce GT 640 Case: Corsair Obsidian Series 550D PSU: existing 450W 80Plus (not sure atm, i think an Antec) Storage: existing Samsung SSD 830 Series 256GB Is this configuration OK or what component could cause trouble? I'm mostly unsure about the Motherboard. I know the Gigabyte Z77Series board should be a good pick for OSX installations, but there a plenty of different models... I read that the GA-Z77X-UP5 TH should be a perfect choice. That board costs around 260€ (335$) here in germany. The GA-Z77-DS3H costs around 80€ (103$). That's a difference of 180€ (232$). I don't have high requirements on the motherboard: I need one PCIe x16 slot for the graphik card, one SATA 6Gb/s for the SSD and of course i want USB 3.0. That's it. So i think i have no advantage in buying the A-Z77X-UP5 TH, except OSX Mountain Lion is running properly on the cheaper GA-Z77-DS3H of course.
