  1. For a test, yes I could do that. Would I be able to get some follow on support? Crash log wouldn't help right as a hint to what may be causing this? Thanks for really fast response!!
  2. I have a gigabyte P45 UD3 P using with Win 7 and most importantly as a Hackintosh, my default boot configuration. Originally configured system with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], then [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] for proper lets. All seems to work fine then Hack will freeze usually have mouse movement but no ability to select anything. Keyboard stops working as well. After a few minutes and a few attempts hitting keys or continuing to select something wit the mouse, I'll get the spinning beach all. I have to then power down and after startup, all is fine again until the system hangs again. Really annoying and looking for suggestions as to how I identify the root cause. Others have this same board and apparently no issues like I have described. I boot into a SATA drive where Chameleon boot loader is installed and by default, have the OSX system drive set as first boot device in bios. All of this works fine, works well on another dedicated SATA that contains 10.8.5 for testing ect. Same system hangs happen on 10.8.5 as well. I have a Nvidia GTX 460 card. No kernel panics on boot but ever. Would the crash log be helpful in someone providing input. Really want to get this fixed. System will not sleep and have disabled allow drives to sleep. No auto wake set. 8 Gb Kingtson RAM. I did not use a DSDT FILE , haven't found one that matches MB version, bios version, loaded Kexts were set in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] when the boot loader was made. Please help and advise if additional information is needed.
  3. SOLVED----What worked for me was the boot flag PCIRootUDI=1 mentioned by site moderator. Once this worked with a manual insert in the boot as a flag, I added it to the boot file so that it was inserted as a boot condition for every boot. Everything else was completely working and normal I tried so many of the suggestions to correct this problem, this is the only one that worked. Thanks so much
  4. Newly built Hackintosh, trying to find out if there is any certain Kext that I need to install to enable the hardware monitor. Can't find it anywhere. Basic question for sure but truly, I can't find this anywhere in my ML Hack. Thanks
  5. Gringo Vermelho, thanks for the great advice, I will seek out the tools you mentioned. Built-in is definitely false on my Ethernet when running IO registry explorer. My board is the Gigabyte ep45 ud3P and the built in ethernet is Realtek, not certain about the exact model. This is a very popular board for Hacks I understand it. I came across a post describing general boot flags for Chimera or Chameleon to and saw one I had not seen previously. A note with the flag also stated this could fix the app store log in issues as well. The flag is the one you mentioned above, PCIRootUID=1. I booted with the USB drive containing Chimera with this flag and was able to log in to the app store. My ultimate goal is to be able to select the boot hard drive after POST then boot to OSX ML or Windows. I do not want to use USB. So, if you can offer assistance to that end, it will not involve ##### or any of the Tonymac utilities, as I want this configuration completely devoid of those tools. Thanks again so much!!
  6. Here is the link--the part I had to take was the one described as the last ditch effort.. iCloud/Facetime/AppStore login errors Thanks for your reply I do desperately need to get this working and appreciate assistance. Thanks for your response, where did this come from, the plist file or the boot file? I am stuck using Chimera at the present and unable to have chameleon.boot.plist in my Extra folder. If I do, my system won't boot?? If I use Cameleon Wizard it only allows edits to the com.apple.boot.plist file not the Cameleon file. Maybe I am running some things together here, just a little help would likely get me going in the right direction to fix the log in to the app store. Thanks
  7. I followed the guide here under tutorials concerning how to fix "unknown error occurred" when logging into the mac app store. By far this is the most detailed and complete guide about this error I have seen. In my case I had to follow the "as a last ditch or extreme case" instructions that involve copying the network interfaces.plist to the desktop, using a text editor to change the fields pertaining to device E0 from false to true. Then saving the file on the desktop then using the root password in terminal set permissions to copy this edited file back to Library/preferences/ system configuration/ that replaces the existing plist file which is wrong, with the edited one then rebooting from terminal mode. The problem is that the plist file simply reverts back to the former settings where built-in key is set to false. I can't seem to make this work. Am I suppose to delete the network devices in system preferences then reboot after the edits or what. My Plist file is by default, being set back to false for the built-in value. How can I get beyond this--what am I leaving out. Followed the guide percisely, but the methodology described in the guide should indeed work, right. Please Help Thanks
  8. I've been experimenting for a few weeks with my PC/HACK on which I have Win 7 Ultimate on one drive and Mountain Lion on another. I have found that this is the most stable or least complicated arrangement in establishing that the OSX system is booting and working normally. I have encountered an issue that there seems to be a lot of information about but none of it has really helped me. It has to do with the logging into the MAC App store, completely different from logging into iTunes or the section of the app store that deals with iphones and other personal Apple devices. From my Hackintosh, I am unable to log in to the app store. I get the infamous "an unknown error has occurred" message but my ID and password are fine. I can verify my credentials all day long on the Apple site, make purchases from iTunes but getting to the MAC app store to purchase is another thing. The information I have seen so far is that for any software purchases, Apple checks the MAC address of the ethernet E0 device as well as other coding that any real MAC can report back to the mothership, sort of a triple credential verification, that if not completed, the above error will be generated at purchase. Previous to the ML install I started out with Snow Leopard. I encountered the same situation but with the workaround using EFI studio and copying the serial HASH of my E0 device into the boot loader, be it Chamelion or Chimera, that worked to avoid getting the store error. So I purchased ML ESD from Apple and installed it. As I was working through the little optimizations, I encountered the log in issue again with ML and have not been able to get past it. Dose anyone here know a workaround with ML installed that will allow a log in to the app store? Really would appreciate any assistance, I think many others have encountered this and is stuck like me. Thanks in advance!!
  9. I have SL working pretty well on my Hackintosh and while I am still learning about this process, I have would like to move to ML. I am trying to purchase an ESD copy from the app store but keep having this issue of encountering an unknown error after attempting to sign in. I know my apple Id is fine, since I can view information about my account and all is good. Is there anyway to fix this error when signing in. I read some articles that say it is related to the network card but I have no trouble getting to the internet. My system: Gigabyte system board GA EP45 UD3 Intel core 2 Quad 9400 Nvidia GTS 240 (planning to upgrade to GTX460) 4 SATA drives, one dedicated to MAC only. Thanks!!
  10. Referring to the guide entitled: [GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Mountain Lion it certainly looks pretty simple but I'm not that profecient with Terminal commands but at step 4 something seems to have been omited. It would appear that the install folder is copied to the USB drive formated with a volume name boot. The terminal command in step 4 returns command not found. Something obviously was omitted that was apparently an obvious step to the seasoned MAC terminal user. I just want to finish the proceedure, by making the USB bootable then booting from it to complete the installation of ML. I am stuch and really need some help, please. I gave up on the Vanilla prodecure as it too apparently omited some steps in the last part of section 2B. Would someone please help me through this. Thanks!!
  11. The toutorial cited above is currently listed in the tutorials section of this forum. It is named: [Guide] The all-in-one guide to Vanilla OS X Mountain Lion + Chameleon + DSDT for beginners. I have completed all steps in the initial preparation of the USB disk but having an issue in the final step of 2B where the restore process to the USB is described. Can someone please assist. The restore seems to have failed because the source contained a folder. Not sure what this means but the process haulted. I assume this proceedure is still valid for ML and would like to proceed, Please assist. Thanks!
