  1. Thank you for the answers, I was able to create the USB manually. As described in the linked posts, the USB boots properly when BaseSystem.dmg is restored to the drive, instead of rsync ing it like I was doing. Does this mean that BaseSystem.dmg has some non-file data (like boot sector data, etc) that won't get copied to USB when using rsync? When I tried to extract the BaseSystem.dmg using pk7zip (in Linux), I got a few files in a directory named '[]' with the filenames containing Inode-<somenumber> these files and the directory '[]' are not exactly files that are seen when BaseSystem.dmg is mounted.
  2. Thanks... After reading http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/ , I thought OSx86 supported Pandora app because it was OSS. Sorry for the misunderstanding The major difference I can see from the Olarila post method and the one I used seems to be copying the contents of BaseSystem.dmg. While I was copying the contents after mounting, they recomend restoring the DMG to the destination partition. I will check it out
  3. I would like to learn to do it manually. I have used utilities like #####, myHack, etc, but want to know how these applications do it. Can you tell me what is wrong and how I can correct it? PS : Where can I get the source code for Pandora.app ?
  4. Hi, I am trying to create a mountain lion (10.8.3 or 10.8.0) hackintosh USB. These are the steps that I followed : created 2 partitions : 200mb and rest of the pendrive (15GB) marked 200mb partition as bootable formated both as hfs+ dd if=boot0 of=/dev/disk1 bs=440 count=1 dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk1s1 mounted 200mb partition and copied boot mounted 15GB partition mounted BaseSystem.dmg anc copied its contents into 15GB partition using rsync -Pah removed System/Installation/Packages copied Packages from mounted InstallESD.dmg to System/Installation (again using rsync -Pah) copied mach_kernel from InstallESD.dmg to 15gb partition I tried using cp -a instead of rsync, but no success. The chameleon/chimera starts successfully, but would kernel panic just after the installer boot process creates RAM Disks. please see the attached image
