  1. ASrock H67M-ITX mobo, AMI UEFI BIOS, onboard Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000, 4GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3 1600 Memory, Realtek RTL8111E Ethernet, Seagate ST1000DM003 1TB SATA HDD. Installing OS X 10.11.2 using Enoch r2795 installer. Gus
  2. My graphics card is onboard Intel graphics, and it works fine for the new El Capitan install, as long as I start from the OS X/Enoch USB stick. There's nothing in the referenced thread about an HDD boot problem. Gus
  3. I have an ASrock H67-ITX mobo with Intel i3-2130 and onboard HD3000 graphics. I created a USB install stick with OS X 10.11.2 and Enoch. The install appears to have succeeded, and I can startup from the USB and then choose the HDD as the boot disk, and boot into El Capitan. What I cannot do is boot the HDD directly. Is there a post install step (with Enoch, Chameleon, or ?) to make the HDD bootable? If so, pls indicate what and/or provide a link how. I note that the AMI UEFI BIOS on this board has an option for USB legacy boot, but I can't find any legacy OS or general non-UEFI option. I'm using AHCI option for the SATA HDD. I've Google searched and found people who made Enoch El Capitan work for this board, but no reference to my problem. Can someone recommend steps to diagnose and/or fix? Thx, Gus
  4. The boot section below, in config.plist, solved the problem. I believe the problem with my earlier boot section was that one needs to specify DefaultVolume (to boot), in addition to the 5 sec timeout. Gus <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>#CustomLogo</key> <string>_NOT_SHOWN_</string> <key>Timeout</key> <integer>5</integer> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-v kext-dev-mode=1</string> <key>Debug</key> <false/> <key>DefaultLoader</key> <string>boot.efi</string> <key>DefaultVolume</key> <string>OSX_10.10</string> <key>Fast</key> <false/> <key>Legacy</key> <string>PBR</string> <key>XMPDetection</key> <integer>-1</integer>
  5. As I said in my initial post, I alteady tried removing the hash in front of timeout. Doesn't help. Gus
  6. I have Clover with 10.10.3, and everything works *except* I can't figure out how to configure the system to boot automatically after a 5 sec delay. It boots OK but I have to hit a key at the Clover screen to boot. The boot section on my working config.plist on the OSX/EFI partition is below. I thought this was done by editing this Boot section, changing Timeout to 5, but that doesn't work. I'm using vim editor, I've tried removing the hash before Timeout, using <string>5</string> and <integer>5</integer>, and everything else I can think of. Appreciate method to fix. (I'd attach my entire config.plist, but I get "You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file" error message) Gus <key>Boot</key> <dict> <key>#CustomLogo</key> <string>_NOT_SHOWN_</string> <key>#Timeout</key> <string>_NOT_SHOWN_</string> <key>Arguments</key> <string>-v kext-dev-mode=1</string> <key>Debug</key> <false/> <key>DefaultLoader</key> <string>题쪘</string> <key>DefaultVolume</key> <string>餘쪘</string> <key>Fast</key> <false/> <key>Legacy</key> <string>PBR</string> <key>XMPDetection</key> <integer>-1</integer> </dict>
  7. Asus shutdown fix?

    I think I may have solved the problem by installing the latest NVidia Web drivers for Yosemite. Tested a few times, and shutdown/startup seems to be working correctly. Apologies I'm a novice and didn't think of this, or even include in my original post that I'm using an EVGA GeForce GT 740 graphics card. But in plowing around in my logs I saw things that made me guess the system was panicking on shutdown, and that the stock Apple/NVidia drivers could be involved. So I downloaded NVidia's latest web drivers for Yosemite and installed them, and the problem seems to be resolved. It's better to be lucky than good Gus
  8. Asus shutdown fix?

    I had tried to upload DSDT.dsl but got "you are not allowed to upload this kind of file", which is why I posted what I believed to be the relevant part of the code in my initial post
  9. Asus shutdown fix?

    I have Clover/Yosemite installed on an Asus Z87-A MB system. It boots/works well but does not shutdown completely, which causes slow subsequent boot. I'm trying to fix with RehabMan MaciASL, DSDT generated using F4 boot, patch source http://maciasl.sourceforge.net/pjalm/repos/asus, patch "generic series 8". On compile I get these errors: Line 4498 4109 String Literal too long (Max length 4096) Line 4498 4096 syntax error, unexpected $end, expecting ',' or '}' A snippet of the code, starting at line 4498, is below. Can someone spot what's wrong, or tell me where/how to fix? Also, after I get an error-free compile, am I supposed to "Generate SSDT(s)" using MaciASL, compile them, and put the resulting newly compiled DSDT and SSDT's in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/ In case it's not obvious, I'm way over my head attempting this kind of stuff ......

  10. VoodooHDA - common problems

    I have Zotac IONITX mobo running Lion 10.7.3. This board has an nvidia chipset with built-in Intel High Definition Audio, which audio apprears correct in audio tab in About this Mac. However, looking in System Preferences/Audio it says "no output devices found", and in fact there is no sound output. I'm using VoodooHDA 2.7.2. I've tried replacing the vendor/deviceID in VoodooHDA Info.plist with the correct value (10de0ac0) - doesn't help. VoodooHDA.kext doesn't load on boot, but can be loaded using kextutil - that doesn't help either. Would appreciate ideas as to how to diagnose and/or fix. Thx, Gus
  11. I later got this to work, using Nozyczek's Guide, with the following changes: -Revert to Lion 10.7.3 (I had downloaded latest Lion 10.7.4 from Apple site, which causes USB problems on some hackintoshs) -Use RealtekRTL81xx-0_0_90 kexts (download on Nozyczek is 0_0_67) -Use Chimera-1.11.0 (download on Nozyczek is 1.7)
  12. I have an Intel D945GCLF2D and successfully installed Snow Leopard using Nozyczek's Guide. Now I want to install Lion based on Install Disk downloaded from Apple store. I followed Nozyczek's Guide for Lion and made the USB install stick, but no joy, when I boot from install stick the boot stalls at "Still waiting for root device". Initially the stall was directly preceded by "couldn't alloc class IOUSBMassStorageClass", and based on Googling that message I tried boot flags npci=0x2000 and USBFix=Yes, still no joy. Based on further ideas in this thread I then installed Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx Driver on the boot stick, still shows IOUSBMassStorageClass error, followed by messages about RTL81xx adapter, and then the "Still waiting ...." message. I've attached hereto the screen image at the stall. I'd appreciate ideas on what's wrong and how to fix. Thx, Gus
  13. I have a Zotac IONITX-D-E motherboard, which uses Intel Atom 330 CPU and Nvidia ION 9400 graphics, with a Seagate Barracuda 7200 1 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache hard drive. I am aware that OSX 10.6 can be installed for this motherboard per the thread http://www.insanelym...howtopic=197516, but the method described on that thread requires using another OSX system to set up the HDD for the target, which other system I do not have (I do have Linux and Windows PC systems). So my problem is how to accomplish my Zotac OSX install without using another OSX system. I've set SATA to AHCI in the BIOS and tried alternative methods, such as using iBoo t Legacy to boot my Zotac, thereafter using my OSX 10.6 retail install disk with various boot options such as cpus=1 busratio=12 arch=i386 maxmem=2048 -f -v. Twice it actually started the install, but then it stalled before completing. Most of the time it stalls before starting the install, with error messages like those shown on the attached screen photo. The key messages seem to be AppleUSBEHCI: start unable to initialize UIM SerialATAPI device reconfiguration did not complete successfully AppleAHCIDiskQueueManager::setPowerState timed out after ... Still waiting for boot device .... To me it looks like the problem is accessing the hard drive to do the install, but in any case I'd appreciate info on what's wrong and how to fix. Also some specific questions ..... -I know my Atom 330 CPU is not supported by OSX 10.6, tho I believe iBoo t Legacy does support Atom (?). Does the iBoo t Legacy kernel replace the 10.6 kernel on the hard disk during the install? - I tried setting the BIOS for Legacy USB to possibly cure the "AppleUSBEHCI: start unable to initialize UIM" error, but I don't know if it worked, or even if the error is relevant, since thereafter my USB keyboard/mouse didn't work so I couldn't start the OSX install. If I should go back to the USB Legacy BIOS setting, what type of keyboard/mouse will still work? -Is it possible that the Seagate hard disk I'm using is the problem? If so is there a boot/OSX config fix I can use, or ... what type of disk or specific disk do I need to use? Thx, Gus
  14. I want to do a hackintosh on a Zotac IONITX-D-E board. I have done one previous hackintosh but I'm hardly an expert. I have read Michael Glass instructions, but I do not have another real Mac or hackintosh. So my question is ..... is it possible to set up my Hackintosh disk for the Zotac using a Linux system? Linux does support the HFS+ filesystem, tho Linux is obviously not OSX .... thx, Gus
