  1. Hi, i have successfully installed Yosemite, that i downloaded from App Store, on my PC, but something strange happened. When i wanted to change size of a .jpg picture using Preview app the final result, to my surprise, was a blank picture, totally white!!!! I just want to know if anyone is having this problem, that leads to the conclusion that it is a bug, or if it was an installation problem? thanks
  2. no EFI folder on root

    i solved the question....no chameleon leftovers are needed. this mavericks runs very smooth on my hack....i am enjoying it, the only drawback is that it can not connect to iMessage, but it is a minor problem. solved
  3. no EFI folder on root

    ok... i mounted my EFI partition and inside there are all the files needed to boot, so my question is.... All the stuff from chameleon is not necessary, now as it is this partition who makes the boot, am i right? Can i erase Extra folder, org.chameleon.Boot.plist and SMBios.plist? sorry for the Nweebish questions but i am new to clover
  4. no EFI folder on root

    my system is a bit outdated but it can handle all i need Asus P5QPL-AM LGA775 NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 4 gb ram 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM quad-core 2.3 GHZ 64 GB SSD disk and 3 more HDD disks i had mountain lion installed with clover bootloader on my SSD disk, so i just created a thumb drive using myHack method and i installed Mavericks over my Mountain Lion disk...all went well and all my settings were preserved including kexts...in the end my clover boot was replaced by chameleon...next i installed clover bootloader and i could boot to mavericks, all went smooth, but what is puzzling me is that there is no EFI folder on the root, there is a EFI-backup folder. There is also a file org.chameleon.Boot.plist which is also inside extra folder and a SMBios.plist file. Shouldn't be at the root an EFI folder? I am not an expert on hackintosh, i handle quite reasonable the installation processes and some things but i need help and some advice here, should i re-install clover? A clean install is not on my plans cause it will erase my disk and there are too many things i can not put back. i could create a partition and make a clean install, but like i said there are too many things i can not put back on the new installation, mainly torrents, too many. ​So, my friends my doubt, is it ok the way my root is or should definitely exist an EFI folder? And what should i do? keep the way it is now, re-install clover, or any other thing? my root thanks for your time and advices
  5. well, after upgrading to mavericks 2 updates appear on App Store, one for iPhoto and the other for iMovie, but when i click to download i got this message "This update is not available for this Apple ID either because it was bought by a different user or the item was refunded or cancelled." I know it is because both apps are not legit, but is there any workaround to solve this, like editing some file or something like that? thanks
  6. Clover General discussion

    thanks a lot
  7. Clover General discussion

    sorry if my question seems silly, but i installed clover over chameleon and my doubt is: do i need the extra folder that was installed by chameleon or does clover detects automatically my hardware and so i do not need SMBios.plist file on extra folder. sorry if this seems like a noob question ok
  8. iMessage 'Contact Apple Support error'

    nothing works, i try even a new account, well really i don't know what's special about my situation. thanks for you advices.
  9. iMessage 'Contact Apple Support error'

    All icloud features were already enabled...my problem is that you are using Chameleon Bootloader in your guide and i am using Clover (and, really, i am enjoying this bootloader) and finally i don't have a credit card But thanks for your effort,
  10. Well, i keep receiving this message 'Please contact Apple Support' after installing clover and editing config.plist. It is really annoying because i do everything properly but iMessage won't work. I do not have any apple device so i can't apply the log out fix. Is anyone still having this problem? I just am about to give up, but before that i would like to ask this excellent forum, maybe there is a fix that i miss. thank you guys
  11. Right-Click drop down menu problem

    @mindlessmissy thanks ...it worked.
  12. Right-Click drop down menu problem

    @ nyolc8: in this disk i have only ML GM installed. I have Lion installed in another disk which is ejected and a ML image on a external disk but this does not make sense...jeezzz six safaris on that menu. I really like to know what's going on before i tried the retail version, which i believe is the same build as GM.
  13. I've been using Mountain Lion since first developer preview and always expecting that the newer build would clear this problem. Now i am using Mountain Lion GM and it persists. I would like to know if this kind of thing, as shown on below pictures, happens to anyone?
