  1. Thanks for the reply! I actually followed that exact post when patching the kernel. I've double checked and I'm confident I followed the instructions correctly; I believe the problem exists outside the kernel. Do you have any other ideas?
  2. Hi everyone, I'm having an issue with a friend's laptop. The specs are as follows: Intel Core i7-4700MQ Motherboard: W230ST 16 GB DDR3 Intel HD 4600 integrated Nvidia GTX 765M dedicated As far as I understand, we'll be unable to to use Nvidia card, this is fine, he's okay with using integrated graphics instead. I used a typical method posted on another site (I'm sure you can guess) to create an installer USB. I have not edited it further, it has all the default kexts/boot flags. When using verbose boot, it is clear the installer will never fully load. Instead, it will hang on "[iOBluetoothHCIController][start] -- completed" From what I've read, this suggests that the issue is not related to Bluetooth, but in fact the graphics card. Apparently it is able to load the installer, but freezes when trying to use the graphics card to display the install screen. I have tried nearly every combination of boot flags, PCIRootUID, npci, -v, -f, -x, GraphicsEnabler (Yes and No), IntelAzulFB=1-15, and several others. Safe mode boot does not work (hangs in the same spot). Single user mode will work, allowing me to manipulate folders and move kexts around. Based on others' suggestions, I have removed all AppleIntelHD* and AppleIntelF* kexts. I've read countless forum posts from people with a similar issue, unfortunately to no avail. It appears as if most people are able to boot into safe mode, which I am not. I'm effectively at my wits end, I'm no newbie to hackintosh but this problem has me stumped. If anyone has any ideas as to what I could be missing, I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks very much! Joe
  3. System: P55A-GD55 CPU: Intel Core i5-750 Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 6770 512MB Hi there, I recently followed the instructions for the USB method Lion tutorial, and it was for the most part a success. I had a working Lion system, apart fom some small issues with audio where I would hear faint feedback at high levels. I read somewhere else that installing an older version of VoodooHDA would fix the problem, so I went ahead and installed it. Unfortunately, upon verbose booting, I was greeted with an unfamiliar error message, one which no amount of google and forum searching seems to help with. PCI configuration begin PCI configuration changed (bridge=1 device=0 cardbus=0) PCI configuration end, bridges 7 devices 20 kxld[com.apple.driver.AppleRTC]: The Mach-0 file is malformed: Invalid magic number: 0xbebafeca Can't load kext com.apple.driver.AppleRTC - link failed.

(2) FireWire (OHCI) VendorID 1106 3404 PCI now active, GUID 0010dc0001b5403f; max speed s400. And from there it hangs indefinitely. As I've said this completely baffles me, as prior to the kext installation the system worked just fine. I've tried deleting the kext in MacDrive in Windows, and even though the kext is gone from S/L/E, the same error message occurs. I've tried booting with -x, -f, PCIRootUID=1, and several other boot flags, none of which seem to have any effect. I've been using Hackintosh for nearly two years now so I generally know what I'm doing, though this message really seemed to stump me. I'd really rather not start from square 1 (wipe the drive, install SL, update to 10.7.2, download Lion, install Lion to USB stick, and install), as I'm sure that there is a way to fix this, I just can't figure out what it is. If one of you could provide some insight, I'd be eternally grateful. Thanks! tl;dr VoodooHDA.kext caused Lion to become unbootable. Tried bootflags and deleting the kext, no result.

    Make Windows Drive Visible in Mac OS X

    That certainly seems to make sense. I do remember that when running 10.6.0, all the drives were visible, however after updating to 10.6.8, the problems started occuring. My mobo is an MSI P55A-GD55. Should I be looking for a kext of some sort?
  5. Hey all, I apologize in advance for what is more than likely a very basic question, however Google searches have been fruitless so far and I'm left with no other place to turn. Currently, I have my 10.6 installation on an external USB harddrive and is working at more or less 100%. It boots up quickly and rarely crashes or behaves abnormally. My only issue is that I am unable to see or access my internal Windows drive which houses all my music, TV shows, and documents. On my laptop on which I run a similar setup (two internal harddrives, one for OS X, the other for Windows) both drives are visible under both OS's, so I know that it's definitely possible. Is there a bios setting that I'm missing, or perhaps some kext I require to make this work? Thanks in advance!
  6. Is there any way to run hackboot from a USB drive? My blank CDs are at my office so I wouldn't be able to get them until tomorrow.
  7. Thanks a lot for the fast reply MaLd0n - it's really appreciated. I'll begin the process later tonight, can I PM you if I have any questions about it, or would you rather me post back in this thread?
  8. Hi everyone, As the topic states, I'm trying to figure out what the best way to go about installing Snow Leopard on my custom built PC. I built the PC earlier this year, before I had the intention of installing OS X on it, and because of this, none of the parts were purchased with OS X compatibility in mind. I installed it before on my Asus G60VX laptop using Chameleon and a retail Snow Leopard DVD. I did some research already, and as far as I can tell the P55A is compatible with OSx86, however most of the information I've found has been outdated, and I was wondering what the most painless and easiest way to install it would be. My exact specs are as follows: Intel i5 @ 2.80 GHz MSI P55a-GD55 4 GB of G. Skill DDR3 ATI Radeon 5770 Ideally, I'd like to be able to use all four cores, as well as QE on the graphics card. I'm quite savvy with computers for the most part, however much of the information for OSx86 seems to be spread around quite a bit, so I'm not looking for step by step instructions; just a point in the right direction. Thanks a lot!
