  2. 10.10 vanilla Bootable Usb Guide

    I got my system running pretty good so far using an Asus P8H77-I with Nvidia GTX 660ti graphics. Here's a few tidbits from getting it running: 1. If you are using your existing Clover boot loader, make sure you do a clean install of the latest Yosemite-compatible version (r2692+ I believe). Afterwards, re-apply your preferences in the Clover plist file. I ran into trouble with Speedstep kernel panics before I did this. 2. DO NOT throw FakeSMC.kext into /S/L/E on your USB install drive! First, put in into another directory on it, then boot using the [-s kext-dev-mode=1] flags. Run your [fsck -fy] and [mount -uw /] commands, then apply the proper permissions commands [chmod -R 775 FakeSMC.kext] and [chown -R root:wheel FakeSMC.kext]. Now you can copy FakeSMC.kext into /S/L/E. Afterwards run [kextload -v /S/L/E/FakeSMC.kext]. FakeSMC should load now. FOLLOW THIS EXACTLY OR ELSE FAKESMC WILL NOT LOAD!!! 3. After install is complete, follow the same steps in #2 to put FakeSMC.kext on your new installed Yosemite drive. In my case, I needed a few extra things to get my system running perfectly. Using Multicast 6.3, I installed FakeSMC + Plugins with HWMonitor, RTL8111 Ethernet drivers, and VoodooHDA (latest version). 4. If you needed to install an ethernet driver, be sure to delete the NetworkInterfaces.plist file located in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration to enable iCloud and iTunes access after you verify your ethernet is working. The reason for this is that your ethernet needs to be at en0, but if you install the driver outside the OS X installer, it is added as a second network interface (en1). Deleting this file will set your built-in ethernet back to en0 after you restart the computer. 5. VoodooHDA doesn't work out of the box with ##### (at least for me). Using the same method I used for getting FakeSMC to work, I was able to get this up and running no problem. Just move the VoodooHDA.kext out of /S/L/E to somewhere else on the hard drive, reboot with a [-s kext-dev-mode=1] flag and follow #2. 6. Once you verified that ethernet, FakeSMC + Plugins & HWMonitor, and sound are working, open up a terminal window to rebuild your kext cache. Run a superuser command [sudo -s] and then [kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel] and [kextcache -system-caches]. My caches rebuilt cleanly and I was able to boot without the [kext-dev-mode=1] flag. System is working flawlessly. Edit: You still need the [kext-dev-mode=1] flag apparently. :-/
  3. I just picked up a new Lenovo B570 laptop from BB yesterday and I can't for the life of me get Lion to install! I had a hard enough time just getting it to boot from the USB stick, ending up using pLop to boot a disc then booting from the USB stick. It doesn't seem to like any drive formatted with GUID, only MBR. Anyhow, I got the USB stick to at least start booting after starting up off the pLop disc, but it hangs right after "DSMOS has arrived". Here's the specs of the machine: Intel Pentium B940 2.0ghz "Sandy Bridge" CPU Intel HD 3000 Graphics 500GB Hitachi SATA HDD 4GB RAM Atheros AR9285 WLAN Any ideas?
  4. Anybody get SLEEP to work?

    I have an Asus P7H55-M Pro. I used Koala's ACPI patcher and it says only partial support for AMI bios. Would that have anything to do with it?
  5. Anybody get SLEEP to work?

    Autopatcher with clean DSDT no go either. Guess I'll have to wait for a new SleepEnabler.kext to come out.
  6. Anybody get SLEEP to work?

    I have an Asus P7H55-M Pro mobo and I tried using one of tonymacx86's pre-built DSDTs and that doesn't work either .
  7. Has anybody got sleep functioning under Lion DP4? AFAIK, SleepEnabler.kext does not work with Lion as of yet. Or am I wrong?
  8. Appstore not work in Lion 10.7 DP4

    Make sure EthernetBuiltIn=Yes is in your boot options!
  9. Appstore doesn't work

    Make sure you have the EthernetBuiltIn=Yes in your boot options!
  10. GeForce 200 series support

    I have the unfortunate dishonor of owning the absolute worst 24" 1080P monitor in all of human history - the Westinghouse L2410NM. It doesn't play nice with the GTX 260 card I have and I have to modify the EDID strings in the display config when running Linux or Windows. It's so far played nice with Snow Leopard up until the point I updated to 10.6.3 - now the display looks like {censored}. I need to know the correct config plist so I can add the EDID strings to fix the image. Can anybody tell me where to find it?
  11. You're gonna have to use AHCI mode. The current IDE drivers don't work worth a damn yet.
  12. If you're just like me, you thought "Hey! I got a working Leopard install with EFI emulation and a vanilla kernel! I'll just run Software Update to upgrade to 10.5.2." Only afterward, your system no longer boots, even though it seemed to install fine. Here's how to fix it. I hope you backed up your kexts before you did it. 1. Go into Safe Mode (-s a the boot screen), and quickly do a "mount -uw /" right at the command prompt. Right after, quickly do a "rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext" before it kernel panics. HURRY! The system's a time bomb at this point until you finish this step. The system will complain about the HPET not working, but just keep going. Reboot as soon as that's done, or just let it crash and then reset. Or, if you have Windows on a separate partition with MacDrive installed, just delete it through Windows. 2. Go back into Safe Mode, do your "mount -uw /" command and go right to the "/System/InstallAtStartup/scripts/" directory and type "pico 1". Find the section with "Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext" and replace it with "dsmos.kext". Save and exit. 3. Delete "/System/Library/Extensions/Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext" and reboot. 4. At the boot prompt type "-v" to enter verbose mode and watch the goings on to see when it's done starting up and then it will probably stop (if you're like me and don't have a working shutdown, sleep, or reboot), reset the computer and let it boot again. It should work fine now. Replace non-working kexts as needed. BTW, anybody got working sleep, reboot, and shutdown? I got a Giga-byte GA-G31MX-S2 mobo and Core 2 Quad setup.
  13. I gave up trying to get my Intel Q35 mobo to boot Uphuck, so I replaced it with a GA-31MX-S2 board which uses ICH7 instead of ICH9. At least now I can boot the DVD and install the OS without any trouble. Unfortunately, that's as far as I'm able to get. When it comes time to boot the OS from the HD, I get a kernel panic right after the bootloader parses the extensions and the kernel initializes. Any known issues that I might not be aware of? It's a pretty simple setup, Core 2 Quad QX6600, 2gb DDR2/800, Nvidia GeForce 7800GT. Thanks for the help.
  14. Anybody tried installing OSX86 on the Intel DQ35JO (Q35 Chipset and Core 2 QX6600 Proc) mobo yet? It stops booting after the kernel loads. Any special parameters need to be set?
  15. I have a nearly flawless installation of Uphuck 1.4i r3 on my system, but the only glaring problems I seem to be having are that my LAN connections keep stalling/disconnecting. I used a Belkin RT2500 WL as well as a Realtek 8139 wired LAN connected a Linksys Wireless gaming adaptor. Both seem to do the same thing. They work for a while, then they just stop. Any idea?
