    Stucked on Grey Apple Screen

    Try setting your busratio.. e.g busratio=9 (1800/133)MHz. Worked for me once.
  2. Might not solve your problem, but I got it working on plain VirtualBox, no modding needed. Have you tried this in cmd? net stop vmauthdservice windows_32.exe C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player\ C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player\vmwarebase.dll net start vmauthdservice
  3. I already have a Lion DP3 install working, but as some programs wont work i thought i would install SL until Lion gets released. So i created a new partition with DiskUtil, but the installer tells me that i have no disks for installation. I get the alternatives to restore from Time Machine or restart. I thought it was possible as Lion was a dev preview, but perhaps only doing it in the opposite order.. EDIT: My SL disc was not retail, converted it and it worked. Mods may want to delete this one:)
  4. I didn't know how Chameleon was released, so I though e.g. only one branch (Kabyl) had the latest ATI compability. Did some reading and compiled the latest trunk (r780). Installed it like the guide you first gave me. Didn't take long, and worked perfectly! Now I have a Lion DP2 install using only Chameleon boot and one kext (FakeSMC). Taking a EFI boot backup seems like an excellent idea. Never heard about CCC, but will do some research. Better safe than sorry:) Thank you for all your help again!
  5. Gparted as EFI partition backuper, or partition installer? I used the "svn" command to get the Chameleon source, it took forever, and I ended up with all the branches. How much do they differ and aren't there a optimized revision? Again thanks for helping, you have probably save me from hours of non-productive problem solving:) EDIT: ./fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0 -> bash: ./fdisk: No such file or directory ./fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0 -> fdisk: could not read MBR code: Is a directory EDIT2: Did not open the directory, it was uncompiled..
  6. Thank you for the answer! I was under the impression that the *.pkg installers where supposed to do this for you. Just have to do a fresh reinstall due some file system ownership issues. Then I will try out the EFI partition boot. Single boot, single HDD.
  7. I finally made it and OSX lion is installed and working fine. So i figured it was only to install Chameleon on the new install and then boot, but nothing happens. There is only a blinking _ as when the HDD is blank. Have tried both standard and HFS EFI install. I'm using Chameleon RC5 770. Is this a partition table issue? My disk has the GUID pt..

    Need help with Hazard 10.6.6i

    Don't know much about osx, but i think linux can handle HFS if you install the tools.. apt-get install hfsplus If you dont want to install linux, make a USB stick using tuxboot w/gparted-live-cd http://tuxboot.org/
  10.

    USB with lion do not show in XPC

    Thank you for the answer! It turned out that it was my brand new USB stick that caused the prob.
  12. Finally found a working XPC and booted it from my USB stick. When I have the 10.6.3 CD in it shows, but if not the screen is just all white.. Lion USB was created using this guide: http://3rr0rists.net/macintosh/how-to-inst...lion-on-pc.html Any suggestions?
