  1. Thanks both of you. I found [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and XPC are EFI bootloaders, that patch the SMBIOS. I tried them, but they're made to be booted from BIOS and DUET. The source isn't too big and I think I should be able to port or fix them. I'll try that before attempting to modify the EFI firmware binaries, which sounds pretty difficult.
  2. Anyone know of any way to edit DMI/SMBIOS data on a EFI machine after using one of the unlockers on VMware? Or where VMware gets the info from? The host machine? I can't find any option in VMware and don't think it's possible to boot into Chameleon.
  3. update to my issue. hope this is the right thread. I added -v to get verbose bootup and found it was stuck in PCI Configuration Begin. I then added npci=0x2000 and it continues, but I see two other errors: BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory Bug: launchctl.c2408 ...(line continues) and ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed Then it shows "DSMOS has arrived" and shows the beach ball. Are those two BootCache and CST failures the problem? I can't seem to find a solution that applies to me
  4. I've followed the same steps as the others in this thread and am stuck at the spinning beach ball after the apple logo. c2d e6300 with vt-x enabled retail 10.7 dvd, created iso out of the inner .dmg workstation 8 ran unlocker from Admin cmd prompt tried 10.6 server 64bit and 10.7 64bit machine types iso mounted to SCSI 0:1 2GB ram, 2 CPU taker123 on first page did the same steps and it works for him... what am I missing?

    Terminal tweaks

    tab completion by default, tab completion is case sensitive. to make it case insensitive, run echo "set completion-ignore-case On" >> ~/.inputrc Terminal colors to get colored output when you run ls, create or edit ~/.bash_profile and add if [ "$TERM" == "xterm-color" ]; then alias ls='ls -G' fi
