  1. Hi guys, now I've seen some threads on a similar thing to what I've posted but I'm still a bit confused here, so I'm hoping you can break it down for this noob. I am running iatkos because it was easy to put an image of the disc onto a usb and I was having no success using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] on my mountain lion macbook air (I believe the issue is [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] only works on lion or snow leopard). Also my hackintosh has no optical drive. At this point I've updated to to 10.8.4 and have everything working but my front panel audio. It was working at first however the rear audio (ALC889A) wasn't. Upon installing the kext to get my rear audio working it has fixed the issue but somehow disable the audio on the front header. Note: currently my front header audio is not even showing up in sound preferences. I see three audio inputs then one digital. (Tested and none of them work for the front audio). I don't understand how I can get both to work. Here is a rundown of my specs: i7 920 GA X58 UD5 Revision 1 6GB RAM GTX 660 Intel 510 128GB for boot and two 500GB seagate barracudas in RAID 0 for storage. Bitfenix Shinobi case. Any help would be much appreciated. Be gentle I haven't hackintoshed anything since 2009. If you need more info please describe what I need to list. Thank you.
  2. Chameleon RC4

    I found my problem. I was trying to edit this file. /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist I needed to edit this file. /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist All fixed now. Yay!
  3. Chameleon RC4

    Thank you, I will try that and report back. I did exactly what you said and saved it to my plist. Still not getting any results? Any idea why? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple$ <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>Hide Partitions</key> <string>hd(1,2) hd(2,1)</string> </dict> </plist>
  4. Chameleon RC4

    OK, I have successfully installed chameleon 2.0 rc4, and I wish to hide some of my partitions on boot. Could anyone tell me what changes I need to make to my com.apple.Boot.plist file to hide my windows 7 and repository partition. The reason I wish to hide them is because BCD is stored on my vista partition, and repository just contains installation files, music etc. Last login: Sun Jul 11 12:10:22 on console Administrators-Mac-Pro:~ administrator$ diskutil list /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 499.8 GB disk0s2 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk1 1: Windows_NTFS Repository 500.1 GB disk1s1 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk2 1: Windows_NTFS Vista 214.7 GB disk2s1 2: Windows_NTFS Windows 7 214.7 GB disk2s2
  5. iDeneb v1.4 Hangs on Disk Boot

    I think you need 1GB of RAM to run the install disk, you might be out of luck unfortunately. I haven't used iDeneb but I know the disk I have requires 1GB of RAM.
  6. Waiting on boot device.

    After I install 10.5.6 it never boots up. I'm installing to a 40GB partition on my hard drive. My first hard drive has Windows XP and Windows 7 on it. My second hard drive has Windows Vista on it. When I am attempting to install it will not recognise my hard drive with windows Vista on it. So I installed Leopard on a third partition on my first hard drive. (I created a NTFS partititon of 40GB on my 320GB hard drive and then used the disk utility on the OS X install disk to format it as a Mac OS X Extended Partition (Journaled)) After installation I boot up and it says waiting for boot device or something to that effect. I have tried installing more than once and don't know what I'm doing wrong. Here's my specs. Intel P31/P35 Chipset Asus P5K-E WiFi AP Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 (3.03 Ghz, 1333MHz FSB, 6 MB L2 cache) 4GB PNY DDR2 RAM @ 800 MHz (4x1GB sticks) Nvidia 8800GT 512MB 320 GB Seagate Hard drive @ 7200rpm 500 GB Seagate Hard drive @ 7200rpm Using the inbuilt wifi adapter RT8187B If anyone could help me with what drivers I'm supposed to install it would be great. I think I've got most of it correct but am unsure when it comes to things like ATA controllers.
