  1. Refresh rate issue

    I have another monitor I could use. I have a GTX 770 and HD 4000 graphics which are disabled.
  2. Refresh rate issue

    It displays the message again. This is annoying for such a small change. I figured when I changed the refresh rate, it would give me one of those "Are these settings okay? Reverting to old settings in 10 sec.." or something.
  3. I have successfully installed OS X using a different image, thanks anyway!
  4. Refresh rate issue

    I was messing around in the display settings and for whatever reason changed the refresh rate to 30 Hz (normally 60 Hz). After that, I found out my monitor doesn't support 30 Hz and therefore went blank and displayed "OUT OF RANGE", meaning it can't display in that frequency. Now I can only boot in safe mode. When I boot into safe mode, the refresh rate is 60 Hz. Whenever I boot without safe mode, the screen goes blank and displays that message again after OS X loads. I've tried adding DisplayMode=1920x1080x32@60 to my Boot.plist but it doesn't help. Also tried manually entering that when booting from Chameleon, and still nothing. Does anyone have any ideas?
  5. PC doesn't boot into Chameleon on Mac OS X partition

    I'm having trouble with the line: sudo diskutil eraseVolume "HFS+" "EFI” /dev/disk0s1 I'm getting an error: Error: -5344: MediaKit reports not enough space on device for requested operation I've changed the string in the Boot.plist file but it hasn't helped. The time between the boot0: done screen and the Windows Boot Manager is nearly instant. I currently have the 2 TB HDD in the first SATA port and the SSD in the second port. Using Chameleon Wizard, I noticed a few things. First, I see a boot option so set a default partition, I may try that. Also, I see various "install methods" for Chameleon, where one is called "boot0" and is the current one. That makes sense since I see the boot0 screens. Another option is boot0md with a description (recommended if you have 2+ disks and Windows is in a disk other than OS X". Should I try that too?
  6. PC doesn't boot into Chameleon on Mac OS X partition

    Okay so I have just finished reinstalling and partitioning in the correct order, same error. I don't know if this was happening before, but I noticed something interested. When I try to boot to OS X, it says: boot0: GPT boot0: GPT boot0: GPT boot0: done Then, it goes to Windows Boot Manager. Now I don't know much about this stuff, but could Windows Boot Manager be messing with something? I know I tried to install EasyBCD at one point so it may be conflicting somewhere.
  7. PC doesn't boot into Chameleon on Mac OS X partition

    So literally, in terms of the picture I posted, partition the drive so the OSX partition is on "top"? I'm just trying to get this right before I wipe the data.
  8. PC doesn't boot into Chameleon on Mac OS X partition

    I do but I wiped it the first time I installed OS X and it wasn't a hassle to back up the data. What do you mean first and second? I partitioned the drive in Disk Utility like so: Where the Barracuda (NTFS) partition is ~1.8 TB and the OS X partition is ~200 GB. Since I used Disk Utility, I formatted and created the partitions at the same time. Sorry if I'm not understanding correctly! EDIT: Other info, the drive has a GUID Partition Table scheme, if it matters.
  9. PC doesn't boot into Chameleon on Mac OS X partition

    Did so, same error. This is bad.
  10. PC doesn't boot into Chameleon on Mac OS X partition

    Did this, and got a new result. When the drive with the Mac partition is the only SATA device attached and in the first port, it says something along the lines of: boot0: GPT boot0: GPT boot0: GPT boot0: error
  11. PC doesn't boot into Chameleon on Mac OS X partition

    In order to keep it in one post, first here's the results of the "diskutil list" command: /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *120.0 GB disk0 1: Windows_NTFS System Reserved 367.0 MB disk0s1 2: Windows_NTFS SanDisk SSD 119.7 GB disk0s2 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *2.0 TB disk1 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Microsoft Basic Data Barracuda 1.8 TB disk1s2 3: Apple_HFS OS X 200.1 GB disk1s3 Next, here is a screenshot of my org.chameleon.Boot.plist settings: Hopefully this helps. I can provide more information if needed. EDIT: Also tried that version of Chameleon. No luck.
  12. PC doesn't boot into Chameleon on Mac OS X partition

    I have done this. When I boot, I usually choose the boot drive anyway. Changing the priority still results in the same outcome. I did install FakeSMC.kext to S/L/E. The Extra folder has both of those files. I'll try the terminal thing and come back with results.
  13. I have my OS X set up perfectly, except for one minor detail that my PC cannot boot into the Mac OS X partition / the Chameleon bootloader on that partition. I have an SSD with Windows on it and a hard drive with two partitions, one that is NTFS for Windows files and the other HFS+ for the OS X installation. My BIOS settings are correct but my PC simply isn't detecting the Chameleon bootloader on the partition. When I try to boot from that drive (not that I select to boot from the partition specifically, just the entire drive), it sends me to Windows Boot Manager with only Windows 8.1 listed (which is on another drive). Could anyone lend some insight on how to get my booting working correctly? Specs: GA-Z87X-UD4H 120 GB SSD 2 TB HDD i5-4670k GTX 770 8 GB RAM
  14. Cannot boot to OS X (on partitioned HDD)

    Sorry about that. I followed the All-in-One guide on this forum to set up the USB drive. I then booted from that installer and used Disk Utility to erase the 2 TB drive and divide it into two partitions, one exFAT and the other HFS+ for the Mac installation. I later formatted the exFAT partition in Windows to NTFS. I then installed Mac OS X to the HFS+ partition. I'm pretty sure I have Chameleon installed on the HFS+ partition but I will try what you said. Thanks for the reply! EDIT: So I got my USB set up with the Clover bootloader and can boot into that fine, but when I chose to boot into Mac OS X, I hit some errors/panics. I think the boot config that exists on the actual install has the correct flags/settings, is there any way I can access that?
  15. My current set up is a 120 GB SSD with Windows 8.1 on it and a 2 TB hard drive with two partitions. One partition is NTFS with other files that I use on Windows. The other partition is HFS+ with my Mac installation. Whenever I try to boot from the 2 TB partition drive, it doesn't boot to OS X and defaults to my Windows installation. I know my BIOS settings are correct. Is this setup of partitions on the drive causing the BIOS not to boot from the HFS+ partition? I've been using OS X for about a week but have had to rely on using the USB installer for the bootloader to boot into OS X. I wiped that USB installer and now I am completely cut off of OS X. I guess this can serve as a question as to how I can properly set up a dual-boot. Here's my specs: 120 GB SSD (NFTS): Windows 8.1, programs 2 TB HDD (partition 1): NFTS format, music files, etc (partition 2): HFS+ format, Mac OS 10.9 GA-Z87X-UD4H GTX 770 i5-4670k 8 GB RAM
