  1. Apologies in advance for the long post; this is a summary of about a week's activity. I had a very stable Mavericks running on an ASUS P8Z77-V PRO. It was booting with Chameleon from a fusion drive. I needed to upgrade to Yosemite to be able to run the latest Xcode. I used the latest Chameleon to upgrade to Yosemite, but ultimately I had to give up on it because Chameleon would fail on boot with a "Can't find mach_kernel" message and could not get it to go away no matter how much goggle advice I applied to my configuration. I had been meaning to try Clover anyway so I downloaded v2k_r3021 and created a working USB installer. I was able to boot the new Yosemite install, I ran the clover installer on the fusion drive and rebooted. However, If I tried to boot directly from the hard-drive, I would get the Chameleon boot screen instead of the Clover one. Looking at the boot option at the UEFI screen, I notice that the only UEFI device is the Clover USB stick, the HD is listed as BIOS bootable. (Much) more googling ensued to no avail. I went so far as to repartition the drive using DiskUtility (note that I did not re-fusion the drives,) and reinstalling Yosemite. I then did a newfs_msdos of both the SSD and HD EFI patrons and copied the EFI partition from the USB install drive. Still the situation remains: I can boot Yosemite from the fusion drive using the USB installer, but if I boot directly from the hard drive I get the Chameleon screen. An the SSD drive still does not show up as a UEFI bootable device. Obviously I've missed a step or 2 and some vestiges of Chameleon remain. Can someone advise me on what to do next? Thanks.
  2. Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L

    I am having a very hard time with this board. I bought it to replace an aging server and was intending to run Leopard Server on it. I have tried a number of install packages from boot-132 to some of the D41M-ES2L specific packages. I can consistently boot to the Aurora screen and then it hangs with a spinning beach ball, seemingly refusing to start the installer itself. It seems like it's a permission issue, but with the graphic up, I can't see what the problem is. This is a Rev 1.4 board. One thing I notice is that ACPI cannot be explicitly set, although it has an optimized setting that is supposed to enable the setting. The other problem I consistently see with all packages if I boot with -v is that the fasksmc cannot be installed for some reason. Has anyone else seen and resolved these problems? Thanks. -clickr
  3. 10.5.7 Released

    Quick follow-up: I fixed the CI/QE problem by re-installing the Leopard Graphics 1.0 update. Not wanting to leave well enough alone, I then installed the Graphics Update 2009001 package, and that gave me a black screen, and I had to roll everything back by restarting as single user. Now graphics are working, but I don't have the login screen's "fade-in" effect that seems to be new with 10.5.7. I can live with that. I also think this solution is 8xxx specific: It did not work for a friend's 9500 based board. The only other problem seems to be that my audio is not coming back after re-installing ALCinject and AppleHDA kexts and running AppleHDAPatcher 1.20. Still investigating this one.
  4. 10.5.7 Released

    I had the same problem. I am running a low-profile NVidia 8400 GT GS on a DP35DP Intel board. I had to ssh in and reinstall previous version of AppleHDA.kext, and HDAenabler.kext. Also removed AppleIntelCPUPowerManager.kext which had gotten re-installed. Now I can see my screen, but do not have Core Image or QuartzExtreme enabled, nor OpenGL. Also: no sound, so I have to re-install that. I think that's all I did. I'm a noob at this, and don't have a recovery methodology down yet. Good luck.

    Check to see if your disk partitioned was formatted as case sensitive. (Get info on the disk and see what is says next to "Format".) I had the same exact problems trying to get Battlefield 2142 installed on a case sensitive disk. When I created a player account on a case-insensitive partition and copied the game to it, it plays without problem. Enemy Territory is also broken on case sensitive partitions, although it doesn't show the same symptoms. Hope this helps. /Clickr
