  1. Thanks for the tip! I don't like mixing the injected kexts into S/L/E usually so I didn't try that, but I'll give it a whirl for sure. Now, does it matter if the Clover I'm using is located on the partition with Mavericks? The Mavericks kexts aren't the same as the ones for Yosemite, but as long as I place them into the /S/L/E folder for Yosemite on the USB drive, I should be all set right?Sorry for the double post, I copied the kexts to the /S/L/A folder but it still hangs for ages in verbose and eventually makes it to the gray spinning wheel of death screen. I've attached the frozen verbose output, I'm not sure if it has anything useful in it. Edit: Actually, now the mouse doesn't become a spinning wheel of death, but it is still very jittery when moving and there's nothing else on the screen.
  2. Hey everyone, I'm attempting to install Yosemite onto my hackintosh which has been running Mavericks smoothly for awhile now. For mavericks I used Chameleon as a boot loader, but I figured I may as well switch to Clover. For some reason when I boot to the installation USB (in verbose mode) it'll spill out a bunch of stuff in like 15 seconds and then stop. Then around 10 minutes later, it'll go into a gray screen with a mouse, but it never goes any further. After a second or two the mouse becomes a spinning wheel of death and that's the end of that. I've left it sitting there for at least an hour and it never progressed. It's hard to tell what is going on because it actually LEAVES verbose mode as if it was able to boot. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm not sure if this helps, but I'm not able to boot directly to the EFI partition on my USB drive for some reason. I've tried two drives (and they have worked in the past), but for some reason my computer just can't find the bootable part of the USB drive. I installed Clover to my existing installation's EFI partition and it works perfectly. So I'm technically using my SSD to boot to the USB, but it's the same version of clover and kexts, etc. so I don't think it should matter. It will of course be an issue once I wipe and install Yosemite though, not sure if anyone has any tips on that. Thanks!
  3. Hey everyone, I'm running 10.6.4 on a Core i5-760 system with an EVGA 132-LF-E655-KR P55 motherboard by booting with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-ATI beta 3. Despite it being a Core i5 system, for some bizarre reason the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-Supported disc has never worked. I think it may be my ATI 5770. I installed [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]'s Supported option, but no matter what I do, it never even makes it to the Gray apple boot screen, it'll just hang and the fans will go crazy. I've tried it with -x as well as cpus=1. It boots perfectly without any flags using the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-ATI disc. Any ideas on what to do here? Thanks!
  4. Still waiting for root device

    Thanks everyone for your advice. I actually just tried scraping even deeper into my motherboard's BIOS and I discovered there was a second AHCI setting that had to be turned on. Seems ridiculous to me, but it works!
  5. Still waiting for root device

    With all due respect OnePlane, I searched for hours before posting this. All I was finding was the same old stuff: -Make sure the cables are in the first two ports. -Make sure AHCI is enabled. -Make sure it isn't some dumb JMicron driver problem. etc, etc. In any case I tried formatting the second part of the hard drive and it still isn't finding the root device.
  6. Hey all, I'm using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ATI on a Core i5-760 system with an EVGA 132-LF-E655-KR P55 motherboard, and I cannot get past the infamous "Still waiting for root device" problem. I've verified that both the HDD and DVD drives are in the first two available SATA ports, and the BIOS is set to use AHCI. The only possible thing I can think of is that I have my hard drive split into two parts. The first partition is 500GB and has Windows Vista on it. The second half is 500GB of unpartitioned space. I highly doubt that's it, and I don't want to re-install windows unless I know I have to. Any ideas? Thanks!
  7. If he can already boot 10.5.5 that's not what's breaking his installation. Boot using -v, and take note of the last couple of lines when it freezes. Or try to take a picture of it with a digital camera and post that, we need more information. Edit: It just dawned on me. If you're using Kalyway 10.5.4, why on Earth are you installing Chameleon? That's not needed...
  8. I'm also having a problem with the scripts, though this is a bizarre one. Whenever I try to run the .sh files I get the get this response: -bash: ./pre-patch.sh: Permission denied I've tried all methods of sudo, and the drive is unmounted. (I am using TWO hard drives) I've even gone so far as to boot into the Kalyway disc and try to run the files from the first hard drive, but it also results in permission denied. I was able to get this working before, but it just isn't working anymore. I also tried manually executing the pre-patch commands, but when I get to the part where you run startupfiletool, I once again get permission denied. What do I do!?
  9. I've been trying to get WinGRUB running so that I can easily switch between my Vista install and Leopard install (which reside on two different internal harddrives). Pressing F8 constantly gets a little annoying after awhile. In any case, WinGRUB relies on the older methods, such as BOOT.INI. Does anyone know of a way to get Grub running using BCDEDIT. And if that isn't possible, can it be set up through the Mac install? Thanks!
  10. AppleYukon.kext

    I just installed Leopard Retail, and my ethernet card requires me to change around AppleYukon.kext a little bit. However, inside System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ there is only AppleYukon2.kext, not AppleYukon.kext. Where can I get it?
  11. Marvell Yukon 2 Driver

    Hey, I have an Asus Maximus Formula motherboard, which has dual ethernet ports. Kalyway 10.5.1 and Kalyway 10.5.2 both work with it perfectly (though only Kalyway 10.5.2 shows both ethernet ports.) My problem is, when I install retail, I can't get the drivers, because I can't find them anywhere. I looked in the Kalyway 10.5.2 installation customize screen, and it shows up as "MarvellNetworkAdapter". The detail screen shows: Apple-Marvell Yukon-2 Gigabit Ethernet Driver 3.1.7 But I can't find that anywhere! How can I get this running on retail??
  12. I'm having the EXACT same problem as you NAXDON. The ISO had like 7 hashfails on download so I suspect it might be that, not sure though. Here are my comp's specs: nVidia 680i SLIC55 Motherboard Core2Extreme QuadCore 3Ghz Processor 4 GB Memory 2 500 GB Sata drives (disconnected...) 250 GB IDE HDD I'm using a SATA Drive and a +R burned at 16x, however, I used a -RW at 2x before and that failed as well with the same problem. Edit: Oh wow, should've read the post above mine. I also have the same BIOS version as you Kagaku, 2.61, so what do we downgrade it to?
  13. Is there any possible way to upgrade it to 10.5.3?
  14. Deleting TPM Checker

    My MacBook is running genuine Leopard though. 10.5.3.
  15. Deleting TPM Checker

    So that Don't Steal Mac OS X has no effect on CPU performance? EDIT!!!!: I just executed and it actually came up with something...Here's the result: | +-o <class IOACPIPlatformDevice, registered, matched, active, busy 0$ Keep in mind, this is on a genuine Intel-based Black MacBook with a Core Duo Processor.
