  1. Hello, I'm about to buy a new notebook and I would like to know if there's a 'perfect ' one for osx (or at least something highly compatible). I'm looking for a 15 inches with i5/i7 and a medium level video card. An suggestion ? Is there a particular brand that is known to work well with osx ? Or a specified model would be even better Thanks in advance
  2. Ciao sono in procinto di acquistare un nuovo notebook e una delle mie priorità è avere OSX ( Ok potrei prende un Mac ma un notebook normale mi costa la metà... C'è crisi ) Vorrei sapere attualmente quale sono i portatili che danno meno problemi con 10.8.x, se esiste una marca meglio di un altra e quali componenti evitare ( ad esempio so che le schede video ati sono indigeste). Ancor meglio se mi potreste indicare un modello direttamente Le caratteristiche che cerco sono cpu i5/i7 monitor 15'' e una scheda video 'decente', diciamo medio livello.
  3. thanks for helping me guys. here's what I did so far: created the USB stick by formatting it then restoring the base system dmg, then mach__kernel text into the new usb + partitions folder + fakeSMC + NullPowerCPU + IOSPCUFamily.kext then used chameleon to install the smblist for macbook pro 6.2 (the pro with gt330m and i5) removed all graphics kext (tried also with) booted using a lot of flags combinations (f v x pcirootuid graphics enabler=no npci=0x2000/3000 busratio=18, not all at the same time ) tried with -v -x -f UseKernelCache=No GraphicsEnabler=No this is the result (same as usual) https://www.dropbox.com/s/bjifjknvq1h69qs/foto-1.JPG this is my extension folder https://www.dropbox.com/s/dlx3h3s9la4t18p/kext.jpg
  4. Tries also removing all video driver and nothing I have DSMOS HAS ARRIVED after the bootcache
  5. Tried already with the removing of intelHD and also ATI but with no luck
  6. Update: it still gives me the bootcachecontrol bur right after it says "DSMOS HAS ARRIVED"
  7. tried removing the 4 AppleIntelHD* kext but it is the same thing..stuck on the bootcachecontrol sometime when I boot i get over that bootcache error but right after I have the error with the hibernate windows (?!) as seen here https://www.dropbox.com/s/qjt3apgclscb2il/foto.JPG can i install ML on an external USB drive? (so inserting two usb while booting, one for the usb stick one with the destination hd)
  8. thanks, i tried (busratio=18 I have i5 520M) but I'm stuck at BootCacheControl: Unable to open /Var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory
  9. Here's the situation: i have an hard disk with two partition, in C: there's windows, and D: is formatted if i boot now I still have the BootCacheControl error but it's not stuck, it goes until the ntfs-fs error again but this time mentions a hibernate status of Windows (WTF?). Windows is not hibernated and i ran chkdsk but I still have this error. (see attach.) https://www.dropbox....scb2il/foto.JPG
  10. i've used a different HD and now im stuck at the boot cache BootCacheControl: Unable to open /Var/db/BootCache.playlist
  11. updates: i fixed the pci configuration error with a iosupcifamily kext but now im stuck in a stupid error, i think it's cause of the hard drive (there is windows 8 in it), should i format it before trying to install ML?
  12. Hello, im disperately trying to make ML run on my DAMN vaio (vpcf11m1e) specs are: cpu i5 520m 8gb ram nvidia gt330m i tried so far with chameleon but i got stuck on pci configuration error, tried a gigabillion of flags, and as SMBIOS i've set MAcbook Pro 6.2 (the macbook pro with similar specs, i5, gt330m..) any one could direct me to a working way, possibly with easy drive through? i'm new to this world.. thanks in advance and please help me i hate windows
