  1. Dual Boot problem

    Hey guys, awesome community here...helped me built my 1st mac(hachintosh). 1 problem though after successfully installed Win 7 and Mac os X 10.7.3 on separate hard drives, when boot chameleon only sees my Lion drive then boot right to it. I set the proper boot sequence on bios to boot 1st where chameleon is installed. Re-installed chameleon a couple of times differently but no luck:( oh by the way Chameleon can see my win 7 drive and other partitions when pressing " - " at boot. Can someone pls help?
  2. Yes pls anyone??? I have the same problem, installed chameleon a couple times on my mac os x drive and made that drive as 1st boot. only boots straight mac. 1st drive - 60gb ssd (os x 10.6.8) 2nd drive - 1tb Wd, partitioned to 250gb(win7) & 750gb ntfs data
  3. New development, I am able to load up os x 10.6.8 now after waiting everytime for the apple white screen loading screen. I followed 1 of the post here in the forum with identical specs but with some issues, no audio from the board and no audio from the video card too through hdmi. I've tried running [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] so many times but no avail. any suggestions? oh and I can't access my mac app store anymore too...to download my lion update, it sayd my device/comp can not be verified
  4. mobo: ga-z68ma-d2h-b3 cpu: intel i5 2500k gfx: HIS radeon hd 5450 1gb ram: 16gb kingston hd: 60gb OCZ ssd My newly build hackintosh(1st ever hachintosh,apple machine) is up and running after 4 days of tinkering and little sleep. It was painfully difficult for me but was able to update it to 10.6.8 but has so many issues still like No audio but can do dual monitor(LCD & Sony TV) with my gfx HIS Radeon HD 5450 but will freeze at white screen if onboard intel HD3000 is used. I read about my specs is more supported in the latest update of mac os x which is lion. So I tried going to mac app store and my damn account won't work anymore, message is: Your device or computer could not be verified. Contact support for assistance. few days before I was able to go in to it and start downloading the lion update but was not finished. I can't download the lion i already purchased from mac app store. has anyone have solution on this? I've tried this: Delete the file / Library / Preferences / SystemConfiguration / NetworkInterfaces.plist start
  5. I think I have the same problem....please help, I've been stuck on this for days. Almost giving up after reading about a lot of stuff over the past days on troubleshooting it and no progress. machine, mobo: ga-z68ma-d2h-b3 mem: 4g kingston cpu: intel i5 2500k gfx: HIS radeon hd 5450 1gb After fresh install mac os x 10.6.3 retail disk, update it with 10.6.8 w/ help of updatehelper... run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url](followed the lifehacker video on how to use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url])basically the same for the audio and ethernet on gigabyte boards. Restart and I only get to white screen. Can please tell me what I need to do more(in details for a very noob guy)?
  6. Need Help and Suggestions

    Hi there newbie here, I've belt fairly enough machines in my life but not for a mac... I wanna build a powerfull and not expensive hackintosh. I am really really on a tight budget so pls if there's any better suggestion than my planned parts pls let me know. so first things first my list of planned parts are as follows case: nzxt vulcan m-atx processor: Intel I5 2500k mobo: GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 hdd: OCZ 60GB Agility 3 SATA III video card: HIS Radeon HD 5450 (old video card from my other pc) hdd: hitachi 400gb 7200rpm (spare hard drive donno if it still works) dvd drive: Sony optiarc dvd burner ram: Kingston HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 I haven't ordered them yet except for the stuff that I already have. I am going to order the Mac OS X snow leopard at apple store tomorrow to start with, I downloaded all the softwares needed too. I wanna know if all the parts I picked will work? I know I know....try looking it up on HCL page but there's no complete list of parts on what I have on the list above. I mean the mobo for example I found it on the mac os x lion page. I am wondering if it's compatible with just snow leopard since my budget has been reach already and I can't afford the lion for now. And another thing I've read on Apple site that orig mac users are complaining a lot about lion which is slower and dumber than the previous ver the snow leopard, Is that true in this circumstances? I've read in one of the thread regarding the HIS radeon 5450 vid card that it is a pain in the butt...the thread was so long I just gave up on reading it all. If my card is just difficult, any suggestions for a card that's fully compatible with all the version of mac os x and that is not that expensive maybe less than $100? Any complains or comments on the SSD of my choice Ocz? And another thing I want to dual boot this new project of mine, which one do I install 1st, Win 7 or the Mac OS X? I am going to install the OS X on the SSD and Win 7 on the 400gb hdd...or any suggestions like buying a 120gb SSD instead and put Win 7 and OS X together in it or it's better to install it separately? huh....I guess thats all my questions for now...pls bare with me, hope someone out there can help. Thanks in advance.
