  1. Import Settings & Apps from old OS

    This works out great when installing new OSX86: 1: make a clone of old OSX setup 2: install chameleon or other bootloader on the cloned disk to make it work again (now you have a backup system, check if you can boot) 3: install lets say Mavericks and at the end of the installation you can choose time machine OR a disk (in this case the cloned disk) the OSX installation will copy all of your files, apps, settings from your cloned disk. Takes very long but very smooth solution. I didnt even had to reinstall or reconfigure my old apps. Just make sure u delete your sensitive data and log out of iCloud on your cloned disk clone app: superDuper
  2. Flash player lagging

    You dont know how many years I'm searching the answer to this question Firefox plays flash most smoothly. As far as I got with my reasearching it turns out to be: the network card buffer if filled then it will result lag, or even system freeze. Try using torrent and watching flash (=many open connections), my osx86 dies after 5 minutes. Just to check my theory: do you have nForce or RTL8139 (Realtek) network card??
  3. SystemShutdown false: it is OK, real mac do that too now (after update) fsck: i'm doomed. Have you found solution how to disable? nothing about it on netkas forum or google.
  4. ATI Radeon 3450 works

    OK, so for the people who has messed up the system and see a BLACK SCREEN after boot and reading from Windows or Linux now (happily I write in OSX86 now ): 1: boot with "-s" option 2: after that write the two commands that are listed after -s (to have write access) 3: Delete the two installed kext with "rm -rf ...kext name...." (kext name: dont remember, LegacyATI.... and Nat... something look for it with the "ls -t -r" command in the Extensions folder 4: type "exit" and after that I was able to boot. I cleared the system kext cache on that first boot for sure, dont know if its needed (with OSX86Tools). ******************** So, system is back, next step: What the heck went wrong ? Everyone please post: 1: did it work for you or not 2: what kernel do u use 3: what distro, system version 4: how did u install (osx86tools-install kext?)
