    iPhone not detected on Yosemite

    Whats that have to do with USB connections?
  2. Hey guys/gals, I got a sucessful Yosemite set up and I want to switch my motherboard to RAID so that I can RAID 0 two drives for windows, i dont plan to install OS X to these drives but the drive will be connected to the RAID controller. I have an ASUS Gryphon Z87 with built in Intel chipset and am using Chimera as a boot loader, so if anyone can point me to kexts that will work thatd be great Thank you

    Try a different usb port?
  4. Hey there mates, I'm about to add an SSD to my rig for Windows and I plan on using my current 1TB drive for storage and games. I was just wondering if I could format that as GUID (or GPT in windows) and allocate 800GB~ for storage (formatted as NTFS) and the other 200GB~ for OS X (formatted as Journaled)? Would that be fine or will I run into a problem? Thanks
  5. Yes they don't do they.. Maybe I'm mistaken? I opened it up in MaciASL and clicked compile and 201 errors were reported, I can provide a screenshot if you want? But unfortunately audio and graphics were not working. Thanks again
  6. Hey artur-pt, Thanks for the DSDT, unfortunately the graphics still don't work and MaciASL shows 201 errors. But thanks anyway Also I've changed my boot.plist, maybe theres a problem in it; <key>DSDT</key> <string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string> <key>GUI</key> <string>No</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>IGPEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f</string> <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>/Extra/SMBios.plist</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>2</string>
  7. Hey guys, So after a few days I managed to install OS X on my Lenovo E540 laptop with a modified kernel but I am having a few problems, mainly graphics and audio. Lets start with graphics, I had assumed it would work natively, I was wrong. I have an Intel Core i5 4200M with 4600 graphics, it started out coming up as a generic adapter with 3MB of vram then I added 'GE=Yes' and 'IGP=Yes' and it identified itself. I then added 'IntelAzulFB' and a number to my boot .plist and as I go through the numbers the ram changes (vram has changed to 7mb so I guess thats progress? ). I'm only up to 6 so I'll try the rest but I thought I'd get a head start on seeking another opinion. Now I don't have a DSDT nor do I know how to compile/patch one, if anyone could take a shot at creating one for me I'd be very grateful! I have attached my DSDT in .dsl and .aml form (DSDT.zip). I would have preferred the 4600 to work natively but if it could be injected (correct term?) into my DSDT so that it's compatible with any future updates (10.9.x) or OS's (e.g. Yosemite) then that would be great. I did move all AppleIntel* kexts to a back up folder (via Chameleon '-s') but that did nothing, I have restored them now. I am using a Realtek RTL8111.kext to get my ethernet working and Voodoo PS/2 to get my trackpad and keyboard working. Interestingly I now have to boot with '-f' to enable. Also have to specify my resolution in my boot .plist, would like that to be managed by OS (same thing I know, just a preference). Heres my boot .plist: <key>GUI</key> <string>No</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1080x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>IGPEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>IntelAzulFB</key> <string>6</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f</string> <key>Quiet Boot</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>SMBIOS</key> <string>/Extra/SMBios.plist</string> MacBookAir6,2 (Haswell) <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> Again please note that with 'IntelAzulFB 6' I am still going through the numbers. Also my audio is Conexant, don't know if that helps, Voodoo didn't work even after deleting AppleHDA. I've also got a weird icon in the status bar, no idea why its there or what it does, powering off card does nothing. Thanks for taking the time to read (or skim) over this and if you need any more info or have a suggestion, please do reply
  8. Hey artur-pt, Thanks for the link, I'll look into that tomorrow, in the meantime I downloaded an updated version of Mavericks (from 10.9 to 10.9.3) and tried various times to at least boot into the installer with no luck. I created a bootable usb with MyHack with added MBR support, removed GE=Yes from boot and added MacbookAir6,2 SMBios to Extra folder. Nothing. I am trying 'Niresh's version just to see if that will at least get me to the installer, but I don't think I'll have any luck there. As for the extra hardware, I still don't know the specific ethernet model (can narrow it down to 8xxx), I have an HM87 chipset and Conexant audio. I also tried to boot with 'USBBusFix=Yes', 'UseKernelCache=No' and 'IGPEnabler=Yes'. If someone could help me see what I'm doing wrong I'd be very grateful. Thank you.
  9. Hello, I have a Lenovo ThinkPad E540 and was envying OS X after watching WWDC and thought I'd see if I could get it running. Before I go any further, I understand that laptops are the worst machines for a hackintosh but I'm not going to spend hundreds on a PC that I will use a few times a month. Let's start with my specs; Intel i5 4200M Haswell Intel HD 4600 graphics & GT 740M 2GB graphics SanDisk 240GB Extreme SSD & WD Scorpio Blue 1TB 8GB 1333MHz RAM Full HD (1080p) embedded DisplayPort (eDP) built-in display I started with using MyHack with MBR support as I want to dual boot Win7 and OS X on SSD, I know that's not practical but I have no space on my other HDD. When that didn't boot I tried http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/ (as it has worked plenty of times in the past), but same thing happened, the Apple logo flashed and it restarted. I tried booting with every flag I've used in the past, "-f GraphicsEnabler=No dart=0" worked for me with a previous machine but I've used a combination of '-s, -x, -v, -f, GE=Yes/No, PCIRootUID=0/1, then I started changing BIOS settings beginning with disabling VT-d and switching from Nvidia Optimus to just intergrated graphics but again no. SATA is on ACHI just FYI. First I'd like to ask if anyone can see any problems either hardware, BIOS or software related. Secondly if everythings alright, what am I doing wrong? Now I do have an Intel 7260 wireless card installed, I understand that this will never work so I was wondering if the intergrated Realtek PCIe GBE (8110 I think, or 8xxx not sure) would at least work? I've also tried deleting all Apple Intel HD drivers. Any information or thoughts would be very helpful, I am using a legally obtained version of Maverics (MAS) but I think it's 10.9 or 10.9.1, will redownload latest version from store. Thank you in advanced, Dan207
  10. IT WORKS!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! Now it feels more like a real Mac Didn't end up needing Chameleon boot command. I had no idea that audio was added to my DSDT (sorry, i'm new to this), is there any other functionality that'll work now that wouldn't have with my (error filled) DSDT?
