  1. Hello My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips. Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows. I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball. I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button). I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same. I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent. I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail. What's the best way to troubleshoot this? Thanks
  2. this will solve you beach ball spinning infinite grey/white screen {censored} ok i got this working the procedure is as follows on two different boards asus m5a97 evo r2.0 gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 and two different graphics cards gigabyte ati hd 79870 2gb xfx hd5770 my processor is a amd fx 8350 32gb ddr3 gskill ram I AM ALSO USING GPT i can now easily play might and magic x legacy on full graphics settings ok i used a certain kernel and the stock graphics drivers if you wish to change that it may or may not work ok procedure you now need to have kext wizard handy you need to head over to here for the AMD kernel http://www.insanelym...ttach_id=157955 inside that file is the kernel and the system.kext now you need to go over to here to grab the other two kext IOPCIFamily.kext + AppleACPIPlatform.kext for yosemite http://www.insanelym...t-for-yosemite/ you will also need amd webkit patch http://www.insanelym...ttach_id=154087 now i want you to place all kext on the desktop if you have backed up your graphics drivers during or after the install you should be able to boot with just npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=1 -v if not you will also need to add -f -x now once you are at your desktop you need to move the kernel over to System/Library/Kernels so rename your original kernel to kernel.backup1 then overwrite it with the new one you will then open up kext wizard and use the install pane to install system.kext IOPCIFamily.kext AppleACPIPlatform.kext (also if you backed up your graphics drivers nows the time to reinstall them) then i want you to keep kext wizard open and install the amd webkit patch after installation has finished go back to kext wizard and repair permissions (click both boxes on the bottom half) then reboot some of you still may have to use -v and -f i have mine booting with full acceleration without -f -v enjoy
  3. Hello all - I have a functional OS X Mountain Lion VMWare image running on my PC system (Win 7 Ultimate) and attempted to upgrade to Mavericks. Well, I need to admit that I found the Mountain Lion VMWare image for download after spending a couple of weekends or so without success trying to create a new VMWare image from scratch. Anyways, when running OS X ML I get the upgrade notification / option and thought it was a straight forward process. After the download I proceed with the install and before rebooting, I even ran the steps - I thought were the key to fix the freeze issue after the reboot - described here: http://chee-yang.blogspot.com/2012/04/mac-os-x-on-vmware-update-10711073.html Either way - after the upgrade request for reboot (or auto-reboot after a certain time span passes) - the image fails to boot and while the color full mouse cursor keeps spinning, the grey spinner stops spinning on the apple logo screen. I have managed to safe boot the image and change to verbose boot. I am attaching the screen shot and am hopeful that somebody will be able to tell at which state the image stalls or what may need to be changed to successfully boot the VMWare image completing the Mavericks install. Any suggestions / recommendations are very much appreciated! PS: I know nothing about Apple OS (other than having some experience with Linux) so please use the -v switch when responding A gazillion thanks in advance!
  4. My installation works but after a couple of reboots, it will display a spinning beach ball AFTER logging in. Note that it's able to boot up right up to the login screen. But the system will just hang with a spinning beach ball after typing the password. Anyone else encounter such a problem?
  5. I have some probrem regarding my mavericks install. Here are my setup: AMD FX 6300 ASRock 970 Extreme 3 AMD HD6670 4 GB of DDR3 RAM WD Blue 1 TB Hard Drive I'm using myHack to create bootable usb and kernel stated here. It boots up to apple logo then freezes. No spinning wheel, no mouse, nothing. Tried any boot flag, -x -f PCIRootUID=0/1 GraphicsEnaber=Yes/No arch=x86_64 still nothing. If I use verbose, after it loads everything off my usb stick (read hfs+ file, etc etc) it shows nothing, only black screen without logs. I have installed Mountain Lion before and it's working fine, only with npci=0x2000 boot flag. I also tried AnV 10.9.0 mach_kernel here but it simply reboots before showing apple logo. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
