  1. I'm trying to get a copy of Mac OS X Lion on a Dell L502x - 1920 x 1280 res screen - Intel i7-2630QM processor (Intel HD 3000 graphics) - nvidia gforce graphics card - realtek 1811 series ethernet So far I have installed Mac OS X 10.8.4 on my computer using MyHack (pretty much a vanilla install). I had to remove the nvidia and intel kexts because it would hang on boot. Does anyone have any good ideas? I have tried GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes, but I don't know what else to do.
  2. Launchctl load makes me boot?

    Hey guys! I have a really bizarre situation. I installed iAtkos L2 on an MBR disk and am able to boot to it from the RBootLE boot loader. However when I booted for the first time, my machine said that to go through with the install I would have to plug in a mouse. So I came up with a fix for myself... I booted into SingleUser mode and copied from a usb a DSDT.aml along with com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist and com.apple.DirectoryServicesLocal.plist. Then I ran: launchctl load /S/L/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.opendirectoryd.plist in order to run passwd so I could change the password for the root user. I then touched /var/db/.AppleSetupDone to trick the machine into thinking the setup was done. Finally I was able to log in. But when I rebooted, it got stuck at "Waiting for DSMOS...". Just for the heck of it I tried booting into SingleUser mode and it still froze after entering "exit". I tried a lot of different boot flags and I finally figured out a trick that worked. I did launchctl load /S/L/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.opendirectoryd.plist Can somebody please tell my why I can boot into my machine only when I type that into single user mode? I'm starting to think that I should have bought a cheap mouse just to get through the string... but that would be too reasonable .
  3. Must connect mouse after installation, but mouse works

    Never mind. I figured out how to get around it.
  4. Hello forum! Yesterday I tried installing the iAtkos L1 on my Dell L502x with i7 2630QM processor (+ sandybridge). I successfully installed Mac OS X to an MBR HD, in a seperate Mac OS X partition using this guide [http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=272645&st=0a]. When I rebooted, I got a message saying that I had to connect a trackpad or mouse. Ironically, my trackpad was working. I need to get past the page in order to complete the first time login page. I have already tried: -placing the ps/2 keyboard mouse controller kexts from a windows installation -using RBootLE bootloader Thanks!
