  1. Moving SSD from PC to Notebook

    True, I don't need the whole bootloader on the USB stick. Nonetheless, the screen is still black. Unfortunately I don't have any external display here, I'm out of home and that's also the reason why I moved SSD from PC to notebook I tried to use those two solutions and solution with EDID which i could not apply because I can't boot mac http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=208410 Nothing works! This is so frustrating, there must be a way
  2. Moving SSD from PC to Notebook

    So I found that many people using 8540W with FX 1800M had problem with screen going black due to some issues with recognizing internal display. I found some topic on putting PEG3 before PEGP or addint NVEnabler.kext but neither of those solutions worked, screen remain black. The thing with not reading DSDT.aml file correctly happened because chameleon was loading DSDT.aml from /Extra directory on hackintosh rather than from USB stick. I had to manually specify hd(0,2)/Extra/DSDT.aml in order to make it read the proper .aml file.
  3. HP 8540w DSDT creation

    I'm working on F.23 firmware and it's not solved for me. I also tried to put PEG3 before PEGP or even remove either one of those, no luck, screen still turns black.
  4. Moving SSD from PC to Notebook

    I don't get it. When I setup key/strings in plist file, they seem to be completly ignored. In order for things like SMBIOSdefaults, DSDT, etc to be applied I have to write them every time in boot options and that's what I do. Also the other strange thing is that if I wrote DSDT=none it boots and then turns black (but dsdt=none means - don't use DSDT?) However if I use DSDT=/Extra/DSDT.aml or I don't specift DSDT at all, this is what I get and from that moment it hangs, nothing happens after that.
  5. Moving SSD from PC to Notebook

    Thanks. I did as you suggested. Here's how my pen drive looks so far This is DSDT editor (I extracted it @ windows OS and patched errors/warnings) I ran flags DSDT=none SMBIOSdefaults=y -v UseKernelCache=n (as well as -f, not really a difference) GraphicsEnabler=No (that flag I did second time but result was the same) and.. screen turns black. This is last thing I was able to catch before screen went black (it happens very fast so there might have been something in between of what I caught and blackout) Thanks
  6. Hello I have ssd with working macosx 10.8.4 running on my PC p67 and i7 2600k. The problem is that I sort of copy pasted files required to setup bootloader from one of the blogs on the web. Now I moved the SSD to a notebook (temporarily) and of course mac wont boot. I was wondering whether 1) I am able to prepare bootloader on an USB stick which will boot mac on the laptop without having to change bootfiles on SSD so that when i plug it back into the PC it will boot as before If yes then what are the minimum requirements for bootable USB stick so that mac run at least (not necessarily fully functional). 2) Is chameleon + plist + dsdt.aml enough to at least boot the OS? My model is HP 8540w and unfortunately no one here so far had the same CPU as I do. My model runs on 740QM and Fx1800m graphics (graphics are common thou). 3) if I rip aml from 720QM, should verbose boot throw errors (panic?) or just hang or something else? Is there a chance it will boot at all? Our laptops (8540w's) share the same mobo 4) Am I able to generate the dsdt file? Number of stuff inside it is huge and I dont know where to start if I would like to patch it to my needs I'll be very thankful for answers on numbered questions and any additional comments that might help me get started with this
  7. Hello. I'd like to bring up two cases here. 1) Disks It's complete confusion to me how Chameleon deals with disks. Firsly, my diskutil list /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *120.0 GB disk0 1: Windows_NTFS 104.9 MB disk0s1 2: Windows_NTFS 119.9 GB disk0s2 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *180.0 GB disk1 1: Windows_NTFS SSD 180.0 GB disk1s5 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *120.0 GB disk2 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1 2: Apple_HFS Macintosh 119.7 GB disk2s2 /dev/disk3 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk3 1: Windows_NTFS New Volume 1.0 TB disk3s1 I have only 2 Operating system. Mac on disk2 (Macintosh) and Windows on disk0 (no label as it's TC'ed partition). Now it's complete mystery to me why does chameleon auto detects them as hd(1,5) - SSD hd(0,2) - Macintosh hd(2,1) - New Volume For me it should be 2,2 - Mac 3,1 - New Volume 1,1 - SSD Well, perhaps it doesn't detect 0,1 or 0,2 as they have no labels but using <key>Rename Partition</key> won't display it either. Could anyone exmplain me how can I find out how to operate with those hd(x,y) stuff? I can't find any pattern here. Using Label or UUID does NOT satisfy me since labels can change, and UUID will not show for disk0. Despite that I tried to hide volume by using Device UUID both with and without quotes and trust me, it didn't hide it. Proof: sh-3.2# diskutil info disk0s1 Device Identifier: disk0s1 Device Node: /dev/disk0s1 Part of Whole: disk0 Device / Media Name: Untitled 1 Volume Name: Escaped with Unicode: Mounted: No File System Personality: ExFAT Type (Bundle): exfat Name (User Visible): ExFAT Partition Type: Windows_NTFS OS Can Be Installed: No Media Type: Generic Protocol: SATA SMART Status: Verified Total Size: 104.9 MB (104857600 Bytes) (exactly 204800 512-Byte-Blocks) Volume Free Space: 0 B (0 Bytes) (exactly 0 512-Byte-Blocks) Device Block Size: 512 Bytes Read-Only Media: No Read-Only Volume: Not applicable (not mounted) Ejectable: No Whole: No Internal: Yes Solid State: Yes 2) DSDT.aml Before I installed UserDSDT or DSDT-Free Installation, HW monitor was able to detect my OC'ed CPU, show the temperatures etc. Now after this installation it shows almost nothing, just SSD remaining life and HDD temperature. I have DSDT.aml in /Extra/ crafted by myself which used to work properly on Chameleon on USB stick. Now it doesn't matter wether I use DSDT.aml that installed together with this UserDSDT-Free Installation or if I use my own DSDT.aml or if I remove it completly, neither HW monitor or SMC monitor won't show me any values at all. I tried to define <key>DSDT</key> with different values <string>/Extra/DSDT.aml</string>, <string>hd(0,2)/Extra/DSDT.aml</string>, <string>hd(0,2)/Extra/GTFO.aml</string> none of those did the trick. I beg for help and appreciate your time with those 2 things. Thanks Mike
  8. In my understanding if all Restrictions are "Optional" and documentation explains what happens IF set to false, does it mean that they are all true by default? (except one restriction `forceITunesStorePasswordEntry` where it explains what happens if set to true, which means that it's false by default?) I guess that if restriction is not specified in configuration profile then it shouldn't make any changed to `brand new` iOS (that would make sense). Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks
  9. Hello. As some of you probably know we have a software from Apple called 'iPhone configuration utility'. You can use it to generate iOS profiles in plist format. One of the payloads in such profile is "Restrictions". Apple is giving us reference about it here: http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#featuredarticles/iPhoneConfigurationProfileRef/Introduction/Introduction.html However I can't find out what happens if you miss some key. For instance, if in my plist file, under Restrictions payload there will be no "allowCamera" key (which should be set to either true or false), what will happen? Will camera be available or not? Some keys have their default values (as reference shows) but some of them don't? This issue came to our mind when Apple release new restrictions key and we won't update our profile, what is going to happen with restrictions which keys weren't specified in the plist profile. Thanks Mike
  10. Profiles on iOS simulator

    Thank you for this information TH3L4UGH1NGM4N. I recently started with development with iOS (hard to call making xml generator development but still), and for now I cannot afford a real device but obviously that must be done sooner or later. Issue resolved.
  11. Hello, I see that Settings menu is very limited on iOS simulator comparing to real iPhone. IS there any change I would be able to install(test) profile configuration files on iOS simulator? (at the moment I can only "see" if structure is correct since improper structure will simply throw error when parsing xml). Thanks
