  1. Yosemite default resolution as 800x600

    Hey bigben1. So, I did that, and got no result at all, but after surfing on InsanelyMac, I've found an app called SwitchResX which managed to set the resolution successfully. It's alright now.
  2. Hello again. Recently, I've successfully installed Yosemite 10.10 on my PC alongside Windows 8.1. I was using Mavericks before, and I decided upgrading using a tutorial from this site. But after installing every kext, adjusting chameleon wizard and everything, I'm facing an annoying problem here that is every time I boot on OS X, my screen resolution goes to 800x600, and suddenly turns to 1024x768. And because of this, it doesn't keep my default screen resolution which is 1280x768 that I adjust with a app called "Display Menu" from the Mac App Store. I'm getting frustrated with this, and I want to know if there is a solution to fix that and keep the resolution I want. Tech specs: Intel Core i5 2400 MB Asus P8H67 8GB RAM 1TB Hitachi HDD GeForce GTX 460 SC 1GBHere is my org.chamaleon.boot.plist How can I fix this? I'm getting sick
  3. Dual boot Windows 8.1 + OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    UPDATE: I finally could adjust my resolution! To do that, I downloaded a program called 'SwitchResX', which helped me selecting my AOC monitor's native resolution. Take a look: Thank you guys for everything now this is working like a charm . Problem solved.
  4. Dual boot Windows 8.1 + OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    Now, that is how my display preferences looks like. And that is how my Chamaleon Wizard is configured.
  5. Dual boot Windows 8.1 + OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    @iFIRE Thx, I could install and set up him, but I still don't get my default screen resolution wich is 1280x1024. Even that I've already set Nvidia web drivers as default for my machine. Man, this is crazy
  6. Dual boot Windows 8.1 + OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    Hey guys! So, again, I followed the steps above from @fusion71au and now, audio is working fine! To fix the boot problem, I had to change the OS X setting in EasyBCD from "EFI (Default)" to "MBR". Now it boots with all my settings But... I've tried installing the Nvidia Retail OS X drivers on my system, but I got this message on the image. http://imageshack.com/a/img513/9803/ubqb.png What can I do now about this?
  7. Dual boot Windows 8.1 + OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    Hey people, I'm back. So, I followed those steps above, but there are things that I still need help (again): After installing and configuring Chamaleon, I got new problems here, that when I try to boot on OS X through Chamaleon on HDD, it just restarts, forcing me to boot on Mac using my USB. Ethernet driver is working fine, video is partially working, I couldn't install a driver for him, and the same for the audio. Also, EasyBCD worked too, but I still need video, audio and boot working appropriately. What can I do?
  8. Dual boot Windows 8.1 + OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    Hello again. I wanna thank you guys for the help. I installed OS X in my HDD using the tip @fusion71au sent here, and i could get back to windows to tell all of this with the tutorial sent by @iFIRE But, there are things that I still need help, like: To boot on my Mac, I must type "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" or my monitor goes no sinal, and "-x" every time, because he gets stuck at the spinning color circle. I've readed about this one, but it says that I must disable VT-D in my bios, but this option does not exist in there, Just the Vt-x, and even disabling this one, it still gets stuck. And also some drivers are missing, like the ethernet, sound and graphics card, because my screen resolution dosen't appear in there (1280x1024). And I want to know how to make my Windows partition as the default when dual boot screen appears, because my dad still does not deal so good with Mac. How can I fix those things?
  9. Dual boot Windows 8.1 + OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    Hello guys, I've got trouble here. I made a partition on my Hdd, and formatted using Disk Utility from Os X installer, but When I'm almost there, the installer says that my disk must be on GUID partition table in order to continue. But When I took a look about it, it said that I must do a complete format on my Hdd. What now?
  10. Hello people from OSx86 I have this computer wich have Windows 8.1 installed on it, and I want to dual boot with OS X Mavericks, here is the specs: Intel Core i5 2400 MB Asus P8H67 8GB RAM 320 HDD 1TB HDD GeForce GTX 460 SC 1GB I've been looking around YouTube, Google and many other places for tutorials for dual booting those operating systems, but all of them say that I must install first the OS X, then Windows on it. But I have a lot of files and settings on my Windows partition, and I don't want to lose them. Is there a way to install OS X on my PC without formatting my Windows?
