  1. I have a lenovo g780 with a core i5 processor. I have been trying to install mountain lion for a while now. Everything I tried I get still waiting for root device error. So i finally tried to make a vanilla usb using http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-mountain-lion-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/ I still get still waiting for root device error. My bios is set to ahci. The only other mode is compatible and i tried that and it still didnt work. Help. Please
  2. While most of the VMWare guest hardware is virtualized, the guest VM CPU reflects the same CPU features the physical host CPU has. This guide details the additional work that is needed to run OS X 10.8-10.12 with an AMD CPU under VMWare. If your AMD CPU supports SSE3 and SSSE3 (and SSE4.1 for OS X 10.12): The installation should be pretty simple: 1. Install VMWare Workstation 8.0.6 / 9.0.4 / 10.0.4 / Player 6.0.4. 2. Run VMWare Unlocker 1.3.0. 3. Prepare an installation ISO from the untouched 10.8 (Mountain Lion) DMG using dmg2img. 4. Create a new VM (select "Mac OS X 10.8" as the guest operating system). 5. Set your 'number of cores per processor' to 1 (the number of processors can be set to more than one). 6. A. For OS X 10.8-10.11: Open the .vmx file of the virtual machine and add the following lines: cpuid.0.eax="0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:1011" cpuid.0.ebx="0111:0101:0110:1110:0110:0101:0100:0111" cpuid.0.ecx="0110:1100:0110:0101:0111:0100:0110:1110" cpuid.0.edx="0100:1001:0110:0101:0110:1110:0110:1001" cpuid.1.eax="0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0110:1111:0001" cpuid.1.ebx="0000:0010:0000:0001:0000:1000:0000:0000" cpuid.1.ecx="1000:0010:1001:1000:0010:0010:0000:0011" cpuid.1.edx="0000:1111:1010:1011:1111:1011:1111:1111" (this will identify the guest CPU as an Intel Core 2 Merom, and will help you avoid the 'The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine.' error) 6. B. For OS X 10.12 Sierra: cpuid.0.eax="0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:1011" cpuid.0.ebx="0111:0101:0110:1110:0110:0101:0100:0111" cpuid.0.ecx="0110:1100:0110:0101:0111:0100:0110:1110" cpuid.0.edx="0100:1001:0110:0101:0110:1110:0110:1001" cpuid.1.eax="0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:0111:0001" cpuid.1.ebx="0000:0010:0000:0001:0000:1000:0000:0000" cpuid.1.ecx="1000:0010:1001:1000:0010:0010:0000:0011" cpuid.1.edx="0000:1111:1010:1011:1111:1011:1111:1111" (this will identify the guest CPU as an Intel Core 2 Penryn which supports SSE4.1) 7. If your Hardware compatibibility is set to Workstation 9.0 (virtualHW.version = "9") or 10, you must also add the following line: featureCompat.enable = "FALSE" 8. You can now boot from the ISO and proceed with the installation. 9. Even though I could complete the installation without a hitch with my A8-5600K, a few applications consistently crashed (e.g. Grapher), this was resolved by replacing the kernel with a modified kernel that emulates all missing SSE3 / SSSE3 instructions (see below). If your AMD CPU does not support SSSE3: You need to replace the kernel with one that has SSSE3 emulation (see below), the easiest way to do it is to use another computer that has SSSE3 to create the virtual disk and replace the kernel. 1. After you have a working OS X machine, update to 10.8.5, make a copy of the virtual disk and attach it to the same VM. 2. Change the os settings to show hidden files (see here), and delete the hidden 'mach_kernel' from the root folder of the attached disk. (alternatively, use the terminal to perform this, e.g. 'sudo chflags nohidden mach_kernel' or 'sudo rm mach_kernel') 3. Put the modified kernel (see below) instead of the one you just deleted (use the same file name). 4. Delete the old kernel cache by deleting the content of the '/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/' directory. 5. Optionally: hide back the kernel (with 'sudo chflags hidden mach_kernel'). 6. Create a new VM, update the .vmx files to include the 8 cpuid.* lines from above. 7. You can now use the attached disk to boot OS X 10.8.5 from a VM hosted with an older AMD CPU that does not support SSSE3. Tested With A8-5600K, A8-3850 and VMWare Workstation 8.0.6 / 9.0.4 / 10.0.4 / Player 6.0.4 Modified Kernel: For your convenience, I have created a modified 10.8.5 kernel (a.k.a. xnu-2050.48.11) specifically to be used with VMWare, and attached it to this post. The only modification to this kernel is that it includes OpEmu3, the SSE3 and SSSE3 emulator created by Sinetek and AnV (thanks guys!). This emulator is only used when necessary (i.e. if your CPU support a specific instruction, the emulator will not be used to execute it). The source code to OpEmu3 is available here and my adaptaion to 10.8.5 is available here. 10.8.5-OpEmu3.zip
  3. Guide--Creating a OS X installer(Iatkos ML2)from windows only. Note:This guide is for those who don't have access to a mac and for some reasons cannot install the retail image on virtualbox. What you will need:::: 1.A Windows PC. 2.Two USB Flash drives.One of at least 8 GB and the other of atleast 1 GB. 3.dmg2img,Win32diskimager,and bootdiskutility. 4.Last but not the least,an Iatkos_ML2 image based on OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2.(I cannot provide you the link to download Iatkos. You are on your own in downloading this one.) NOTE : Iatkos distributions are the modified copies of Mac OS X made to be able to work on a PC. I STRONGLY ADVISE USE THIS TEMPORARILY to set up OS X on your computer and then create a installer from a LEGACY PURCHASED retail image. For more info on Iatkos visit http://iatkos.me The Steps::::: 1.Connect the 1 GB USB stick on your computer. 2.Run Bootdiskutility,select your USB from the list and click on Format disk.The utility will install clover and chameleon bootloaders on your USB drive. 3.Decompress the dmg2img folder and move the Iatkos_ML2.dmg file in the folder containing the dmg2img.exe file. 4.Right click on the folder containing dmg2img.exe while HOLDING DOWN SHIFT KEY i.e Shift+Right click and select "Open command window here" from the context menu. 5.On the command window type the following without the quotes "dmg2img Iatkos_ML2.dmg" and press enter.This will create a Iatkos_ML2.img file in the same folder.(see screenshot) 6.Now plugin your 8 GB USB drive,Decompress the win32diskimager folder and run the win32diskimager.exe file.Select the Iatkos_ML2.img file created in previous step and your 8 GB USB drive and click on Write.Ignore the warnings.This will write the OS X installer on the USB drive.(see screenshot) 7.Now plugin both your USB drives on the computer on which you want to install OS X.On the boot prompt SELECT THE 1 GB USB DRIVE.Clover bootloader will be loaded and your OS X installer USB will show up on the boot devices list.DONT CLICK DIRECTLY ON THE INSTALLER.CLICK ON "BOOT UEFI MENU FROM CLOVER" FIRST AND THEN SELECT YOUR INSTALLER.Also don't change any of the clover settings. OS X installer must boot now on your computer.You will see that the installer language is in Russian,you can change that easily by clicking on the first box. NOTE:Chameleon bootloader cannot detect the USB created by this method.

    AMD Kernel

    Version 10.8.x

    4,147 downloads

    Support topic for the kernel is here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/281450-mountain-lion-kernel-testing-on-amd-dont-ask-help-here-use-the-help-topic/ The kernel is RC4 by Bronzovka. I think that it is the best AMD Kernel at the moment. Advantages: 1. Faster than Andy's kernels (less than 30s) 2. Running stable 3. SSSE3 issue has already been solved But the kernel still has a few glitches. We will strive for it!

    AMD Kernel

    Version 10.8.x

    2,441 downloads

    This is the result of months of development in this topic: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...esting-on-amd/. The kernel, which i'm posting here as amd_kernel, was built by Andy Vandjick, but that wouldn't be possible without the amazing work by Sinetek (who made the first SSSE3 emulator ever, enabling non FX-series CPUs to run OSX in 64-bit kernel mode), R:A:W:x86, Bronzovka (who made Lion on AMD possible) and the Voodoo Team. Many thanks to them all! The correct boot flags to run the kernel are amd_kernel arch=x86_64. FX-series users must also add the correct busratio. The kernel is not working properly with nVidia graphics (and some ATI ones), so their users must also either add -x (safe mode) boot flag or disable GeforceGA.plugin and GLDriver.bundle in System/Library/Extensions. This kernel will also work with 64-bit Intel CPUs that are not capable of running the vanilla kernel. Good luck to all and please post feedback. The sources are also included for anyone wanting to build the kernel from the sources, or help improve it - there's still a lot of work to do.

  16. It's built and tested on my ML system... Source is included... This kext will work always on AMD... replacement for Dont steal Mac OS X.kext (move somewhere after install AppleDecrypt.kext) Enjoy Again thx to Sinetek for the decryption algo's Watch closely in the screen cap... (no Dont steal Mac OS X lol) I've made kexts for Lion and ML EDIT: ML version should work for Mavericks too... EDIT2: New version, Mavericks optimized. This one (under Release Mavericks) is code signed. (no more nag screen stating unknown kext etc...) EDIT3: New version, Yosemite optimized. This new version does not use OpenSSL anymore but instead loads up Apple's corecrypto.kext and uses that. I found the proper way to use Apple's corecrypto interface and it's much faster Also the code is built with Xcode 6.1 and fully optimized for running really fast. The Yosemite optimized version is in the V2 zip file and source, as usual, is included. It should be possible to recompile the kext on other systems as well because the corecrypto interface is still at 1.0, so no change. (Lion / 10.7 or better). EDIT4: Added github repo. https://github.com/andyvand/AppleDecrypt AppleDecrypt-Sinetek-AnV.zip AppleDecrypt-Sinetek-AnV-V2.zip
  17. Hi everyone! First, please forgive my English, is not my native language, so, Grammar Nazis are welcome to make an appearance here. Now to the main thing. A friend needs OSX for work, but he doesn´t has the budget to buy even the cheapest apple product, so I took his Packard Bell and started with this little project. Notebook specifications: CPU: Intel I5-450M RAM: 8GB DDR3 Video: Intel GMA HD <-Not sure about this...I know is a decent HD video card, but not sure about the model. Please let me know if it is vital info and I will ask the owner and update this. HDD: 320GB. + usual Notebook stuff like webcam, bluetooth, atheros chipset on the wifi hardware, realtek sound, etc. It´s a pretty nice PC, I guess it should be enough to run mountain lion...maybe I´m wrong. I tried with iDeneb 1.3 and didn´t work. stuck at instalation, Then i tried iAtkos L2 and managed to install, but got stuck in a nice apple loading screen. Before I jumped from my balcony, i saw this strange post in a obscure blog about the Niresh 12495 hackintosh. So I give it a try. Installed witouth troubles, but stuck in the apple logo again. I tried a -v boot and manage to see where it got stuck (couldn´t do that on iatkos or ideneb by the way). Captures at the end of this post. Lastly, I tried a -v -s -x boot. I got a console, so when i tried to input a help command, i realized the keyboard wasn´t working. It works in the boot screen, but when the console boots i guess is waiting for a bluetooth or a ps/2 keyboard, it doesn´t recognize nor the Notebook keyboard or a usb keyboard. So, should I give up? any advice will be welcomed warmly. Please don´t be shy and let me know if I can do anything else to help understand the issue. Kindest Regards from Chile.

    Toshiba L855-14J (10.8.X)

    Hello there guys. Almost a year ago I got myself a new laptop, previously owning also a Hackintosh-compatible Fujitsu Ah530, this time the Toshiba Satellite L855-14J, made for the European market. Today I'm going to show you how to install Mountain Lion on your laptop and going to share few links that are crucial for your installation. First, let me show you my specs: CPU: Intel Core i7 3630QM 2.4Ghz (up to 3.4Ghz) RAM: 4GB VGA: AMD Radeon 7670M with 2GB of vRAM WIFI: Atheros AR9485 From all of these, the only hardware that is not compatible is the WiFi card, and I fixed this by replacing mine with my older laptop which had a Atheros AR9285. Unfortunately, there is no kext or anything that helps the 9485 to work. Also keep in mind that the audio card only works with Mountain Lion. The kexts, modifications, and everything else for that card do not apply for Mavericks, and if you want the sound card to work, you will need an external one unfortunately. On Mountain Lion even the jack recognition works, so it switches to the active output automatically (speakers or headphones). Microphone doesn't work, but external one does so... Yeah. First, there are two ways of installing Mountain Lion on your laptop that will work. Keep in mind that we will use Clover for our installation, because none of the other bootloaders will work. You can install with iAtkos ML3U, or a bootable usb with the needed kexts, and Mountain Lion from the App Store. Both of these methods work just fine, but the first one is already loaded with the needed kexts, and everything will work outside the box, minus the graphics card, which we will install the last. *For iAtkos* This laptop is highly compatible with osx86. It works really nicely, and when selecting features on iAtkos, do not choose too much. Audio and network from drivers only, both of them which will work after installation. If for some reason iAtkos does not boot at all, you will need a second USB that is no bigger than 512MB. Just for the bootloader, we won't need this after some time. Check out this thread on how to install Clover from Windows OS. Boot up the USB, and select the other USB (insert it after) and go ahead with the installation. *For AppStore USB* If you choose the longer way, than check out this thread on AppleLife.ru! This will show you the kexts needed, but keep in mind that that is a L850-13R, which is a different model, and not all things work (sleep for example works there, but not on the L855). After you installed Mountain Lion on your hard disk, the next step is to install Clover. The configuration file that is linked below is for version 1995, but you will notice that if you install that version, you will receive boot0 error. To fix this issue, download the latest Clover, install it, and than reinstall 1995. Than it will boot up properly from your hard drive. If you have trouble installing clover, PM me. Now install the kexts needed (if iAtkos none than PS/2, and if AppStore, check out the AppleLife.ru thread), and proceed with installing the graphics card. Graphics card will work with QE/CI, HDMI port, but the VGA output doesn't work. * Try out kexts (even those on AppleLife.ru) for the battery meter. My laptop is plugged in power without a battery, so I don't really need it that much. So I'm assuming that you already have v1995 of Clover. Download EFI Mounter and mount the EFI partition. Replace the config.plist file with the one attached here. Reboot. Enjoy Mountain Lion. Credit for config.plist file goes to freeuser16 from AppleLife.ru! Thank you.

  19. Hello all, I have successfully installed 10.8 on a partition on my HP ENVY dv6-7247cl and am able to update to 10.8.1. After using the 10.8.2 delta update or the 10.8.4 combo update, however, I encounter "Still waiting for root device" when attempting to boot. Though I have scoured forums all over the internet, I cannot identify the cause or find a solution. Any help for this inexperienced hackintosher would be greatly appreciated! Edit: Managed to install 10.9 DP1 on another partition, but I still get "Still waiting for root device." If anyone could offer some ideas, that would be fantastic. Below are what I figure are the important specs as reported using AIDA64; if any more information is needed, please ask.

  20. Good evening ladies and gentlemen, iCloud, FaceTime and AppStore works perfectly ! My problem is that iMessages not working. I tested different solutions like delete Networking preferences and interfaces. Add my PlatformUUId into the nvram*.plist file. I have the FileNVRAM in the module folder with the latest chameleon r2258. Error message : Your Apple ID "xxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com" can not be used to configure iMessage at the moment. If it is a new Apple ID, there is no need to create another. To use this Apple ID with iMessage, contact the assistance of the iMessage app with the code below. Client code: xxxx-xxxx-xxxx This is the message original message in French : Votre identifiant Apple « xxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com » ne peut pas être utilisé pour configurer iMessage à l'heure actuelle. S'il s'agit d'un nouvel identifiant Apple, il est inutile d'en créer un autre. Pour utiliser cet identifiant Apple avec iMessage, contactez l'assistance de l'app iMessage avec le code ci-dessous. Code client : xxxx-xxxx-xxxx Last information : My account work perfectly on my Macbook. Waiting to hear from you I wish you happy holidays
  21. What I had already tried Add Credit Card details Reinstall OS X Restarted New serial number Reset password etc. How to fix it? Contact Apple Support Start telling him/her about the problem as soon as he/she says hello. ESPECIALLY about the pop-up and the customer code. Give legit details. Even serial number. Keep telling him/her you are looking at the right place. He/She will say it's invalid. Confirm it again. Eventually, ask him/her to drop it/why does he/she needs it?I asked, and she said to know what Mac I was using. I gave her all the info she could want(Keep Champlist and everymac.com open) He/She'll ask you to repeat the Customer Code. Do it. He/She'll ask you your ID. Give him/her the correct one(The one that you're entering in the Messages app). He/She'll tell you that he/she needs to confirm that you're a real person, and will ask you to answer the security questions that you answered when you created the account(Like "Where did your parents meet?"/"What was your childhood name?"). You'll need to get at least one right(I think). He/She'll ask you to reboot. Do it. He/She'll tell you not to worry. Don't. Voila! You'll be able to login just fine. THANK HIM/HER. So, I think this issue was caused because I had changed so many Serial Numbers that Apple flagged me as a bot. Once I verified my identity, all was well! It worked fine for me, so just sharing. If you've got some problem, feel free to ask, although I've got exams the whole month so probably won't be able to help. Even so, I'll try to.
