  1. I can't install Sierra I got an error message saying that "Still waiting for root device", google & tried every solutions but none works, I can't even boot in Safe mode I tried different settings Config.plists (Clover) but so far none works I even tried successful DSDT.aml from previous Chameleon bootloader but still failed "Still waiting for root device"
  2. Lenovo W510 (Nehalem i7-820QM) with El Capitan

    Thank You Man, What are your Hardware SPECS like Soundcard? Does it work for you? I have similar Nehalem CPU hardware like you (i7-820QM) but no USB3 whatsoever and I bought that laptop back in 2010 it still works fine as of today. There's no UEFI for the laptop but I can setup Clover legacy boot, GPT and NO MBR, dual boot with Windows 7, now 10
  3. [How to] Fix DVD Player error 70012

    Is there a way to start DVDPlayer and play backup DVD movies without a physical DVD drive? Because I often copy physical DVDs to my HDD - Just copy a whole DVD to a folder called Movie_Name - Then add .dvdmedia to Movie_Name DVDPlayer refuses to play Movie_Name.dvdmedia if there isn't a physical DVD drive plugged into my hackintosh. Edit: problem solved here: http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=3785

  12. Nvidia 8600M GT and Snow Leopard 10.6.4

    @hf206 You could follow this guide here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=246728 A year ago I was dealing with 8600M GT from HP DV???? laptop, and got full QE/CI+native resolution 1600x900 I remember I did like that guide except that the newest version of Snow was 10.6.2 at that time.
  13. You won't get QE/CI or other resolutions than 1024x768 because the guides you followed are mostly outdated For example: gfxutil generates correct GFX string if and only if it runs under Leopard 10.5.x not Snow Leopard 10.6.x And a lots outdated information from these guides that I forgot to mention Here is my guide it works for GT240, 250 GTS, 260 GTX and 27? ( not remember maybe 275 ) Before you try this guide, please notice: It's normal that you will not get QE/CI and native resolutions when you just finish install 10.6.3, you need to upgrade to 10.6.5 or 10.6.6, in case you can't get into the desktop, use -x at Chameleon and fix Ok, here we go - First, look at your DSDT Scope (\_SB) { Device (PWRB) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0C0C")) Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (0x0B) } } Device (PCI0) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) Name (_ADR, 0x00) Name (_UID, 0x01) Name (_BBN, 0x00) Method (_S3D, 0, NotSerialized) .............. Then you need to change Name (_UID, 0x01) to Name (_UID, 0x00) as below Scope (\_SB) { Device (PWRB) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0C0C")) Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized) { Return (0x0B) } } Device (PCI0) { Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03")) Name (_ADR, 0x00) Name (_UID, 0x00) Name (_BBN, 0x00) Method (_S3D, 0, NotSerialized) .............. - Second, make sure you install most updated Chameleon let's say RC5 699 Or Newest VALV's Chameleon - Third, update your com.apple.boot.plist by add these lines into it <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> - Finally reboot Make sure you must DELETE all other graphics injection kext such as NVEnabler... and REMOVE GFX string, also DO NOT add any graphics info in DSDT file, you CANNOT mix vary techniques at once, you CANNOT combine different methods: it won't work, for example: GraphicsEnabler Yes with GFX string (even correct) together or add graphics info to DSDT combine with other techniques: WILL NOT WORKS!!! Remember: If this still not works for you try to install fresh Mac OS X If you can not get into desktop (black screen) then use safe mode -x to boot into No QE/CI ( just temporaly and fix or use another way ) Final words: if this works or not, please report and I will give you other solutions

  15. Asus EEE 1215N

    I've heard that Optimus (Hybird graphics) can be turned off from Linux, Now we need to implement a kext to disable a graphic and hopefully we get QE/CI Read here https://github.com/peberlein/acpi_call/comm...3db8af632a0095d https://github.com/peberlein/acpi_call http://linux-hybrid-graphics.blogspot.com/...parameters.html
