  1. Our old friend corecrypto has come back to pay a visit. I have not been using the patched kext during this most recent testing. I've been masking the AMD SSE3 bit in VMware. We've been freezing at LP64. If I remove the mask and boot fips_mode=0, that boot arg is no longer sufficient to continue booting. Observe.
  2. The script works of me in Linux. But my mountpoint is /mnt. I didn't thoroughly test other scenarios. Sure, the script could be improved. Perhaps it won't help the overall cause, but I created it for my own testing anyway. Symlink your volume to a path without spaces and see if that gets you anywhere. And again, user beware.
  3. You probably have to escape the spaces in the <volume name>. Don't use the trailing slash either. /Volumes/AMD\ Mountain\ Lion\ HD
  4. Include this in his launchd folder... specifically in launchd/Release/. Name it launchdhelper.sh and chmod +x it. ***I WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE IF THIS DOESN'T WORK, DELETES THE CONTENTS OF YOUR HARD DISK, FAILS TO CURE AIDS OR BEGINS WWIII.**** #! /bin/bash if [ $1 = "install" ]; then echo "Where is the Mac volume mounted ( leave blank for '/' , /Volumes/<drive name> no trailing slash , etc.)?" echo "Type the path and press [Enter]:" read mountpoint echo "Backing up originals..." mv $mountpoint/bin/launchctl $mountpoint/bin/launchctl.orig mv $mountpoint/bin/wait4path $mountpoint/bin/wait4path.orig mv $mountpoint/sbin/launchd $mountpoint/sbin/launchd.orig mv $mountpoint/sbin/SystemStarter $mountpoint/sbin/SystemStarter.orig mv $mountpoint/usr/lib/system/liblaunch.dylib.orig $mountpoint/usr/lib/system/liblaunch.dylib.orig mv $mountpoint/usr/libexec/launchproxy $mountpoint/usr/libexec/launchproxy.orig echo "Installing new launchd..." cp launchctl $mountpoint/bin/ cp wait4path $mountpoint/bin/ cp launchd $mountpoint/sbin/ cp SystemStarter $mountpoint/sbin/ cp liblaunch.dylib $mountpoint/usr/lib/system/ cp launchproxy $mountpoint/usr/libexec/ elif [ $1 = "remove" ]; then echo "Where is the Mac volume mounted (/, /Volumes/<drive name/, etc.)?" echo "Type the path and press [Enter]:" read mountpoint echo "Deleting launchd..." rm $mountpoint/bin/launchctl rm $mountpoint/bin/wait4path rm $mountpoint/sbin/launchd rm $mountpoint/sbin/SystemStarter rm $mountpoint/usr/lib/system/liblaunch.dylib rm $mountpoint/usr/libexec/launchproxy echo "Restoring original launchd..." mv $mountpoint/bin/launchctl.orig $mountpoint/bin/launchctl mv $mountpoint/bin/wait4path.orig $mountpoint/bin/wait4path mv $mountpoint/sbin/launchd.orig $mountpoint/sbin/launchd mv $mountpoint/sbin/SystemStarter.orig $mountpoint/sbin/SystemStarter mv $mountpoint/usr/lib/system/liblaunch.dylib.orig $mountpoint/usr/lib/system/liblaunch.dylib mv $mountpoint/usr/libexec/launchproxy.orig $mountpoint/usr/libexec/launchproxy else echo "Usage launchdhelper install -OR- launchdhelper remove" fi
  5. What am I missing? Booting 10.8.2 with debug kernel. No other mods.
  6. Damn. You're right. It was late when I posted. Arrrgh! Yeah, Andy. For those of us not going through what you're going through, it sounds pretty rough. You seem in good spirits about it. Keep that up and get well!
  7. Riddle me this, Batmen. How is 10.8 running on MacPro1,1's if neither Xeon offered in that model is SSSE3 capable?
  8. Could the latest LP64 hang be launchd? Did anyone glean anything from Lion launchd's issues?
  9. Its the disk timing out. Same on mine (more or less). Happens for me attached as both an IDE or a SCSI disk. OSX looks to have support for the VMWare hardware devices, though. I've got FakeSMC loaded, this disk otherwise boots fine on my i5 machine (different kernel of course).
  10. working on rebuilding the test environment now. What bootloader are you using, ANV? Link?
  11. I believe the nomenclature would be 'the last bit of the level 1 ECX register.' This may help. Mind you all I did was the above mask, though, and FIPS mode became a non-issue. http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1993
