  1. Clover General discussion

    Is there any tutorial about how he was doing this? I know how I can get chimera to work with a fusion drive but not with clover without using an external drive.
  2. Clover General discussion

    Yes I have a patched BIOS. The problem was that I needed to add one of the UEFI drivers to boot. But now the system is running. I set up a fusion drive which I was using before with chimera. But now I realized that you can't just use the installer to install Clover on the Fusion Drive. I was searching with google but I don't really find a solution. Only advises like choose another partition where you can install Clover but I don't have any. Does anybody know how to install Clover manually for a Fusion Drive?
  3. Clover General discussion

    Ok lower case solved the problem. But when I try to boot my 10.8.3 installation stick restored from installESD.dmg I get stuck with the error that the kernelcache could not be loaded. I then tried to follow this guide: http://tonymacx64.blogspot.de/2013/03/guide-how-to-build-reliable-usb.html without success. Only kext added so far fakeSMC.kext. Any ideas?
  4. Clover General discussion

    This is the latest version

    Did you quote me on purpose? Because I don't really see what I should change in my config.plist compared to yours.
  6. Clover General discussion

    Hello, maybe somebody can give me a hint how to resolve my problem. I have an ASUS P8P67 Pro Rev. 3.0 with 3602 BIOS. Since this is an UEFI BIOS I want to use Clover with UEFI. I installed it on an USB stick (choosing UEFI installation option) formatted in HFS+ (Fat32 as mostly suggested did not work...installation always fails). Then I edited the config.plist, placed my DSDT and reboot and this is what is happening (see screenshot). Also after the reboot the EFI partition does not mount on the USB Stick so I am not able to access the config.plist. Any ideas? My config.plist: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key> <dict> <key>Debug</key> <false/> <key>KernelCpu</key> <false/> <key>AsusAICPUPM</key> <true/> <key>AppleRTC</key> <true/> <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>VoodooHDA</string> <key>Find</key> <data>SGVhZHBob25lcwA=</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>VGVsZXBob25lcwA=</data> </dict> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Comment</key> <string>External icons patch</string> <key>Find</key> <data>RXh0ZXJuYWw=</data> <key>Replace</key> <data>SW50ZXJuYWw=</data> </dict> </array> </dict> <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>DsdtName</key> <string>DSDT.aml</string> <key>DropOemSSDT</key> <false/> <key>DropAPIC</key> <false/> <key>DropMCFG</key> <false/> <key>DropHPET</key> <false/> <key>DropECDT</key> <false/> <key>DropDMAR</key> <true/> <key>DropBGRT</key> <true/> <key>GenerateIvyStates</key> <false/> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>DoubleFirstState</key> <false/> <key>PLimitDict</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>UnderVoltStep</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> <key>DisableDrivers</key> <array> <string>Nothing</string> </array> <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>MountEFI</key> <true/> <key>MLB</key> <string>CK9177C1XYL123456</string> <key>LogLineCount</key> <integer>3000</integer> <key>LogEveryBoot</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> <key>GUI</key> <dict> <key>Theme</key> <string>metal</string> <key>Timeout</key> <integer>5</integer> <key>DefaultBootVolume</key> <string>SnowHD</string> <key>DebugLog</key> <false/> <key>Mouse</key> <dict> <key>Enabled</key> <false/> <key>Speed</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> <key>Volumes</key> <dict> <key>Legacy</key> <string>First</string> <key>Hide</key> <array> <string>VOLUME_NAME</string> <string>VOLUME_UUID</string> <string>TODO_HIDE_VOLUME_BY_TYPE/GROUP</string> </array> </dict> <key>HideEntries</key> <dict> <key>OSXInstall</key> <false/> <key>Recovery</key> <false/> <key>Duplicate</key> <false/> <key>WindowsEFI</key> <false/> <key>Grub</key> <false/> <key>Gentoo</key> <false/> <key>Ubuntu</key> <false/> <key>OpticalUEFI</key> <false/> <key>InternalUEFI</key> <true/> <key>ExternalUEFI</key> <false/> </dict> </dict> <key>PCI</key> <dict> <key>USBInjection</key> <true/> <key>USBFixOwnership</key> <true/> <key>InjectClockID</key> <true/> <key>PCIRootUID</key> <string>0</string> </dict> <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>BiosReleaseDate</key> <string>02/29/08</string> <key>BiosVendor</key> <string> Apple Computer, Inc. </string> <key>BiosVersion</key> <string>MP31.88Z.006C.B05.0802291410</string> <key>Board-ID</key> <string>Mac-F42C88C8</string> <key>BoardManufacturer</key> <string>Apple Inc.</string> <key>BoardSerialNumber</key> <string>C0xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</string> <key>Family</key> <string>MacPro</string> <key>Manufacturer</key> <string>Apple Computer, Inc.</string> <key>ProductName</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> <key>SerialNumber</key> <string>CK9177C1XYL123456</string> <key>SmUUID</key> <string>6BC33FC8-ECE1-5C8A-A87B-1F7D1D3E7A56</string> <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> </dict> <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>boot-args</key> <string>-v npci=0x2000 darkwake=0 Kernel=mach_kernel slide=0</string> <key>prev-lang:kbd</key> <string>en:0</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <true/> <key>LegacyBoot</key> <string>PBR</string> </dict> <key>CPU</key> <dict> <key>Turbo</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>PatchVBios</key> <false/> <key>GraphicsInjector</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </dict> </plist> [/codeBOX]
  7. Is there any chance to get a modified 3XXX Series BIOS or is there a reason why it is not possible?
  8. Andy did u encounter any stability problems? After some hours ML begins to freeze up. First I lose internet connection and then shortly after every program I touch begins to freeze until everything locks up. Any news on the USB 3.0 front? edit: I think the reason is that suddenly one of my hdd turns off. I can hear that they go in sleep mode (the typical noise). After that the system freezes. Since my 10.8 is installed on a SSD I can't really tell if there is the same problem with the SSD. Any idea why this could happen (maybe unmounting the drives automatically).
  9. Best videocard for Mountain Lion?

    GTX580 works ootb if u use a Mac Pro smbios.plist
  10. I was using this guide in the end: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=280514 Working perfectly, but I had to use my pre-edited Boot.plist and SMBIOS.plist (Mac Pro 5,1) from my Lion system. With that my GTX 580 worked ootb. No black screen anymore (like with iMac SMBios). And also using Andys method there are plenty of errors showing up in verbose mode. With the other guide there were none. But still I have one thing to ask. Are there any USB 3.0 drivers out there? P.S.: Also the App Store version did not work for me..I was using the modified imzdl
  11. For me it did not work. I have a P8P67 Pro with GTX 580. Firstly it takes very long to get passed by Bluetooth and Ethernet detection and after that I only get a black screen. GraphicsEnabler=yes does not help. If I use my Lion boot loader then I can get into the actual Installation menu but when I am going to install it it is saying that it is missing a basic software package to continue. I follow the instructions on the first page with the App Store GM Version.
  12. Does this Guide still work for the GM?
  13. No they are not but I give it a try. Thanks.
  14. So I should try to reinstall it then? Or do you think I could try something else before?
  15. Hello, I have an ASUS P8P67 Pro and I am using 10.7.2. I also have a 128GB Samsung 830 SSD for my system and 1 TB HDD for my User Folder (redirected the folder link in User Account controls -> http://www.tuaw.com/2009/05/14/tuaw-tip-moving-your-home-folder-to-another-disk-or-moving-it/). This setup was working pretty flawless. But lately I have to reboot the system to get it working. The problem is that OSX does not mount my HDD correctly. This results in a Folder called "Home" which should be my HDD. And my HDD with my user account on it will be renamed to "Home 1". When this happens then OSX tells me that it was unable to find my user folder. I am wondering why this is happening now. If I remember correctly this was not the case before 10.7. Any ideas? I am using a retail installation with Andys Boot CD and the latest Chameleon with Chameleon Wizard since Chimera never seem to work for my system. Any suggestions? Kind regards, Valmar
