  1. I came across that. Thanks. I can now boot fine, had to remove everything from one hard drive and reformat then place the OSX partition first on the drive
  2. What have I done? How can I fix this? I currently can't get back into ML for some reason...................
  3. Aw {censored} I broke it. Extracted files with pacifist and installed the kexts and copied the other files over. Repaired permissions and rebuilt caches. Rebooted and the screen size was well off and didn't have any other options. So reinstalled original kexts and copied over original files rebuilt and permissions. Rebooted and get stuck. I just have a black screen with a little white box in the top corner!! Help

    After moving and deleting everything from Drive B and reinstalling ML now boots fine without the USB booter. Thank you so much for your help and advice. Now to try and get the audio working..........

    colins-imac:desktop Colin$ sudo -s bash-3.2# fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk1 bash-3.2# dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk1s5 2+0 records in 2+0 records out 1024 bytes transferred in 0.001360 secs (752975 bytes/sec) bash-3.2# cp boot /Volumes/Boot\ OS\ X/ cp: directory /Volumes/Boot OS X does not exist bash-3.2# cp boot /Volumes/Boot\ OSX/ cp: directory /Volumes/Boot OSX does not exist bash-3.2# The final part of the code doesn't work, no /boot OS X. I guess that is due to both drives being MBR? I'm currently looking at solutions to moving or deleting stuff or even scratching some cash together to buy another drive. Spent all this on major upgrades and now need to spend more. lol. I really appreciate the help.

    excellent mate, cheers. So the 'Identifier' on the right hand column I should ignore and just read the left column. So pretty much I have to format Drive B and start fresh then?

    Thank you so much for your reply. Finally a reply that makes sense. Now a little explanation for my partitioning. I have two drives (obviously), both normally with three partitions each. Disk A Windows 7, I have learnt, always has its own partition for if and when things go wrong and it needs reinstalling. I save nothing to that drive except windows and any programs I install. Everything goes elsewhere. Films has its own partition for the constant adding and deleting of films and footage which I find easier to defrag as a smaller partition. Music is self explanatory. OSX is where I had originally installed Mountain lion but I was getting a real headache making it boot at all, so that 100GB was from the films partition. Disk B Games and Photos is self explanatory again. Downloads is a partition kept away from my auto virus scan..... Mac used to be Downloads too. In an ideal world I would buy another SATA disk and add that to use as my Mac drive but funds don't allow that. I could move 'Downloads' to Disk A, add that to 'MAC' and then have two NTFS partitions and one HFS+ partition. Would that help or not really? I can't move anything else as that is all the space I have and is currently all pretty much full, I need a couple of bigger drives I know. Also why have the two HFS+ partitions been marked as 'diskXs5' when there is only four partitions on each drive? So even with that identifier I would still use 'dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk1s4'? Thanks again for taking the time to help me out here.

    I think I may be following your guide wrong. This is my disk and Partition layout: colins-imac:~ Colin$ diskutil list /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0 1: Windows_NTFS Windows 7 104.9 GB disk0s1 2: Windows_NTFS Films 209.7 GB disk0s2 3: Windows_NTFS Music 80.7 GB disk0s3 4: Windows_NTFS OSX 104.9 GB disk0s5 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk1 1: Windows_NTFS Games 157.3 GB disk1s1 2: Windows_NTFS Photos 157.3 GB disk1s2 3: Windows_NTFS Downloads 80.7 GB disk1s3 4: Apple_HFS MAC 104.9 GB disk1s5 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *63.9 GB disk2 1: Apple_HFS OS X Install USB 5.0 GB disk2s1 DISK1S5 is where Mountain Lion is installed So copying your instructions I get the following: colins-imac:~ Colin$ cd desktop colins-imac:desktop Colin$ sudo -s Password: bash-3.2# fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/disk1 bash-3.2# dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk1s5 dd: /dev/disk1s5: Resource busy bash-3.2# dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk1s5 dd: /dev/disk1s5: Resource busy bash-3.2# dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk1s4 dd: /dev/disk1s4: Operation not supported bash-3.2# diskuto; mount disk1s5 bash: diskuto: command not found mount: disk1s5: unknown special file or file system. bash-3.2# diskutil mount disk1s5 Volume MAC on disk1s5 mounted bash-3.2# cp boot /Volumes/Boot\ OS\ X/ cp: directory /Volumes/Boot OS X does not exist bash-3.2# cp boot /Volumes/Boot\ OSX/ cp: directory /Volumes/Boot OSX does not exist bash-3.2# I gave up on this years ago when I was running AMD and now recently upgraded to Intel and thought it would all be a lot easier........
  9. Still getting nowhere. Chameleon boots and on the handover to darwin I end up in the reboot cycle.

    Still getting this. Haven't tried Clover yet - shouldn't need to. Any other suggestions?
  11. Chameleon issues

    This still
  12. Chameleon issues

    I'll post in the other thread as well then and after I'll try clover. Thanks

    Have you tried VMware? I got it to install fine on that, the only issue I found is VMware can only use two USB ports at a time. It's not a truly viable option for usage though. The amount of support on here is surprising though. You would have thought a community as big as this would have swathes of people helping each other to achieve the same goal. Instead it seems it's just hoarded of people looking for advice and not getting very much.

    Any advice?
