  1. Kernel location updated. Downloading the GM now to check the other bit, will update again in a few hours.
  2. I've been extremely busy lately so haven't had chance to update (or visit the forum at all really). Guide is being updated now and will be live in the next few hours all being well. Guide updated. Please let me know if you have any problems. I usually run through the guide myself step-by-step prior to any updates but haven't got time to do so tonight so will do so in the morning. There's only minor updates anyway so it should be fine.
  3. You really aren't gonna go far on this board if you insult one of its most respected members. Start installing OS X by either vanilla or myhack and post to this board and people will help you through it. Just want to install OS X with the minimum fuss? Go buy a Mac. Why has no one created an OS X tool that runs under Linux? If your so concerned about it why don't you?
  4. Use 3 paritions, 1 for OS X, one for Linux, one for Data. You can easily move your home directory for the OS you use the most to the Data partition and that can be a different file system (e.g. exfat).
  5. 1. I've never seen a hackintosh die due to it being a hackintosh. 2. AFAIK all modern CPUs will reduce their multiplier to prevent overheating (SpeedStep). Here's what I think (Disclaimer: I have zero experience with RehabMans kernel) and it's assuming that your CPU is actually the problem. I would hazard a guess his kernel isn't reading your P-States (or he has some hard coding for frequency / multipliers going on), it's very possible you've unknowningly overlocked your CPU and due to the custom kernel that's loaded SpeedStep hasn't been able to lower the multipliers to reduce temperature thus burning it out. I'm pretty sure this would void your warranty but I don't think the company would be able to prove it unless you told them. Even if that wasn't the case you should have been installing VANILLA. Once you've installed OS X then you can change things since you can monitor hardware easily. I'll take a look at his thread / kernel tomorrow if I get time...
  6. 1/2. In theory you should be able to use Chameleon Wizard (I haven't tried it myself to actually install chameleon). It may be that the chameleon installer requires a newer version of OS X 3. boot0hfs should be fine. 4. AFAIK nothing. Enoch is a renown member of the community & the chameleon team. From what I understand the Enoch revision simply means he compiled it personally (I may be wrong on this though). If the bootloader fails to install / doesn't boot then it can be installed manually with relative ease, see here (and give me a shout if you run into any problems): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/164809-how-to-install-chameleon-manually-v-2-and-v-1/
  7. Heh no problem, have done that myself before (Part 6.5 in the guide will fix the folder layout). There's some very minor differences between Mavericks & Lion/ML which may not be ironed out of the forum post (updating it as we speak) so use the attachment rather than the post.
  8. Hey, point 2.B.4 noted, will update tonight. Point 2.B.7: On your Mavericks.app right click -> show package contents -> Shared Support -> Double click InstallESD. This should mount it and the packages folder is the only folder you can see in the image. If that doesn't work: After mounting InstallESD open Terminal (in applications -> utilities). Type: cd /Volumes/"OS X Install ESD" then: ls You should see an output like: BaseSystem.chunklist BaseSystem.dmg Packages Verify this then get back to me
  9. Absolutely identical. Install using bootcamp then virtualise using vmware. It doesn't matter weather you're booting virtual or native - it's the same files / OS getting loaded. Any files that have been changed / programs installed is irrelevant - weather it's native or virtual you're changing the same files. The only differences you'll notice is that when you switch from virtual to native, windows 8 will take longer to load (since it can't pull the kernel out of its hybrid state due to the hardware change so effectively does a full restart when you change hardware).
  10. VMWare fusion 5 can definitely do this so I'd assume 6 can as well. It can even do this on my Hackintosh and it sees the Windows install as "Boot Camp". Works fine on my macbook as well. I've never used parallels so not sure about that one. Note, however, this can cause activation problems (assuming you've paid for a key). I think the recommended fix is to activate running native & activate in the VM and then you're fine (windows keys can be activated 3 times). Personally I've never come across this problem I've just read about it.

    [Solved] Chameleon driving me insane

    check your org.chameleon.boot.plist and see if ignore boot cache is checked
  12. People following this guide are not doing so because they want the easiest way to install OS X. They are doing so because they want to install it, understand how they installed it, and understand how to modify it to suit their hardware. If you wish to click a button and install OS X then by all means use MyHack or Tony or some other distro, but that is not what this guide is about. Simply: It isn't ment to be the easiest, it is ment to be the most complete.

    Hmmm.. Have you both managed to get framebuffers to load? In about this mac is should say your exact card model, not 6xxx?

    Interesting your setup is very similar to one of mine which isn't completely working. I noticed you've got no framebuffer loaded for the HD6870, did you get it to boot with GraphicsEnabler=Yes?
