  1. Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU: The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way. This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app. TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac. Features: - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process. - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers). - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly). - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too. - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal. - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code. - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk. - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you. - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool. - Uses recent, modern, APIs and SDKs and the Swift 3 language. - Transparent graphics style available (type alt-S or choose from the menu bar: View -> Use transparent style). - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update. - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer. Features that are planned for future versions: - Install and configure [Clover](https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/). - Install kexts into Clover's kexts folder. - Clover drivers customization - Use custom DSDT in Clover - Integrated pre-made Clover config templates database from a remote and open repository. - Support for other languages, at least Italian. # Requirements: - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer). - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer. - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

  2. Questo è il thread in italiano dedicato alla mia app TINU, l'app open source che ho creato per creare chiavetta di installazione di mac utilizzando il metodo "createinstallmedia". Il nome è l'acronimo di TINU Is Not U (Per le regole del forum devo censurare, ma la U si riferisce ad un programma che piu o meno svolge lo stesso scopo che per buoni motivi è bandita su questo sito, il punto del metterlo nel nome sta nel sottolineare che la mia app è totalmente diversa) L'app è pensata per essere molto semplice ed immediata da usare (con un interfaccia grafica progettata con criteri e metodi usati in ambito professionale per lo sviluppo di applicazioni utente) e per essere molto solida e stabile che funziona sempre al primo colpo (a differenza di altri tool che conosciamo ...) A livello funzionale quest'app non è altro che un interfaccia grafica per il metodo da terminale "createinstallmedia" che viene sfrutatto dalla stessa per creare la chiavetta, quindi le chiavette create con TINU sono chiavette al 100% vanilla come se le aveste create dal terminale, l' applicazione, rispatto al metodo da terminale, aggiunge però funzioni utili come il controllo ed il riconoscimento di errori nel processo, la formattazione automatica della chiavetta USB che si sceglie di usare in formato Mac OS Extended (journaled) (detto anche HFS+) con mapatura di partizione GUID, ed anche altre opzioni personalizzabili o disattivabili come l'applicare un icona alla chiavetta di instalalzione. Tra gli altri vantaggi troviamo il fatto che permette di creare chiavette utilizzando qualunque applicazione di mac che contiene l'eseguibile "createinstallmedia" inclusi installer delle beta ed installer appena rilasciati, e non richiede di fare cose particolari prima come formattare la chiavetta e cambiare lingua al sistema e puo utilizzare applicazioni di mac che si trovano in varie directory nel sistema e non solo quelle che stanno nella cartella delle applicazioni ed hanno un nome specifico (nota che l'applicazione di installazione di mac deve essere quella interacche pesa diversi gb e non quella da pochi mb che l'app store puo scaricare alcune volte e che non contiene tutto quello che serve per permettere a createinstallmedia di funzionare) Tra l;e altre cose quest'app è l'unica app di questo genere sviluppata e che continua ad essere sviluppata in Italia ed è anche l'unica completamente open source. Trovate qui alcuni link utili: - Scarica l'app: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases - Codice sorgente dell'app: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU - FAQs (Domande fatte di frequente, in inglese): https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs - Thread in inglese su tinu (English thread about TINU): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/326959-tinu-the-macos-install-media-creation-tool-mac-app/ Qui invece ci sono un paio di guide (Anche se l'app è molto facile da usare): - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per un hackintosh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug1yBZybpD4 - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per creare cheiavette per Mac "originali": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZOZOUt2ErM Pianifico molte altre nuove funzioni per future versioni dell'app (vedi il thread in inglese per saperne di più) Il supporto a clover in TINU è pianificato per una versione futura, anche se dei protipi a livvello codice per renderlo possibile, sono gia stati sperimentati con successo. Spero che anche voi del forum italiano aprezzerete questa app come gli utenti del forum inglese, per idee e suggerimenti, siete liberi di esprimervi :-)
  3. Disk Warrior shot up a hardware error ("5, 1502" whatever that means) with my boot drive yesterday and now I'm wondering, in the process of replacing this drive (because hardware failure will be complete failure with hard drives), if there's a way to create a bootable installer thumb drive with NVIDIA's WebDrivers so I can actually see a screen. Also, I'm hoping that after a clean installation I can use my Time Machine backups to get my system back to where it was? TIA for your patience.

  6. With the release of El Capitan, the script to create a Bootable ISO for VMware of Mavericks and Yosemite does not seem to work anymore on the El Capitan official release.

  7. My Spectre X360 is set to UEFI mode. I made a UEFI Windows 10 bootable usb using Rufus, set to GPT for UEFI mode. My laptop doesn't see the usb when in UEFI mode. When I set to Legacy Mode, it is seen. I tried different flash drives. I tried manually formatting the flash drive. Nothing works. Any ideas?

    USB doesn't boot.

    So, I have tired everything that I could. The usb doesn't boot. My computer goes straight to GRUB for my Windows/Fedora booting. My PC: Intel E7500 Intel DG35EC Mobo nVidia 9400 GT SATA Hard disks 6 GB DD2 800 Mhz RAM Tried so far: --- Transmac with : - Yosemite Disto - Vanilla Sierra - Vanilla El Capitan Pandora's Box - Using DMG - Using "Install Sierra App" downloaded from App Store. - Enoch Chamelon. Ares. Clover - All kinds of configuration for Legacy booting. boot flag -v, MacPwn Flash Driver Maker and then Clover. Restore method and then Clover. Tried the "one that cannot be named here" too. No go. Since I am running this stuff on a VMWare Sierra on Windows 8.1 Kexts I have tried. - FakeFMC.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - VoodooPS2Controller.kext(that ones for PS2 mouse. Don't ask why. I am obsessed with it.) MaLd0n's Clover folder had - USBInjectAll.kext - IntelMausiEthernet.kext - HDMIAudio.kext - AppleALC.kext Here are my BIOS settings. Any ideas people? I have seen people posting about their successful Hackintoshes on Yosemite and Lions etc on Machines similar to mine if not the same. So it can be done. It doesn't HAVE to be Sierra. I will be happy with Yose or El Cap too.
  10. AMD Athlon 64x2 dual core 5200+ 2.7Ghz 6GB RAM Realtek SB 5.1VX Sound Card (My onboard sound has konked off) ATI Radeon HD 5670 TP Link wireless network adapter I run Windows 7 Ultimate on a 1tb sata hdd, and have an unused 500gb sata hdd. I was able to install & run Kalyway 10.5.1 however it seemed dated, wifi worked, sound didnot, gfx card didnt & only onboard worked. Would I be able to install Osx Mavericks on this system? I do not have access to a mac, would I be able to make a bootable USB of Mavericks in windows (perhaps using transmac in windows to create a bootable osx usb)
  11. Prerequisites 1) Ensure your Mac is compatible with OS X Yosemite. These are the supported devices: iMac (Mid 2007 or newer) MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminium, or Early 2009 or newer) MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer) Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer) Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer) Xserve (Early 2009) 2) Back up important data and settings (photos, videos, music files, documents and the like) on your Mac to an external hard drive. You can do this by using the Time Machine feature in Mac OS X, or third-party software such as Carbon Copy Cloner. 3) Create a bootable USB flash drive with a storage size of at least 8GB. 4) Download OS X 10.10 Yosemite Final from the Mac App Store and save it to the Applications folder – its default location. How to Create Bootable USB Flash Drive First, create bootable USB flash drive. Here is how you do it: Plug in your USB drive into the computer and open Disk Utility (in Applications). Select the USB drive from the left sidebar and click on Erase tab. Choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled) in the format box and let the name be Untitled (default). Now click on Erase button and wait until the format process completes. ​ Then choose Partition tab and select 1 Partition from Partition Layout dropdown menu. Click on Option and ensure GUID Partition Table is selected as the partition scheme, with its name set to Untitled. ​ After downloading the OS X 10.10 Yosemite instakker from the Mac App Store, just quit the installer and set the downloaded file's name to Install OS X Yosemite.app. Launch the Terminal app (in Applications/Utilities) and type or paste the following command in, and then hit Enter: sudo /Applications/Install OS X Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install OS X Yosemite.app --nointeraction Note: The code above has missing double dashes in the quotes. Please replace a single "-" with "- -" when you enter the above command line in the terminal. This will create the bootable USB flash drive. This takes between 10-20 minutes. Do not interrupt the Terminal or eject the flash drive during the process. Once the process completes, you will see the message "Copy Complete. Done." The OS X Yosemite bootable USB flash drive will be ready for use and you can start the clean installation process. How to Clean Install OS X Yosemite on Your Mac Step 1: Ensure the bootable USB flash drive is plugged into your Mac and restart the computer. As soon as the start-up chime plays, press the Option key (Alt). Step 2: Choose the USB drive on the start-up drive selection screen and hit Enter/Return on the keyboard. Step 3: Wait until the Yosemite installer appears on screen. This could take a few seconds or minutes. Step 4: Click on Disk Utility and then hit Continue. Step 5: Click on Macintosh HD from the left hand-side pane and then hit Erase tab on the top-right portion of the window. Leave all the settings at their default values and then hit Erase button at the bottom right. This will wipe all files stored on your startup hard drive. Step 6: When the erasing process is complete, return to the first screen where you selected Disk Utility. Now click on Install OS X and then hit Continue. Step 7: Choose the Macintosh HD partition you erased in step 5 and then click Install. If you have followed all the steps correctly, your computer should now boot right into the newly installed operating system, OS X Yosemite, and you could cherish its stunning new UI. Create bootable Yosemite ISO 1- You need download Install OS X Yosemite.app 2- Run this script in Terminal: #!/bin/bash # Mount the installer image hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg -noverify -nobrowse -mountpoint /Volumes/install_app # Convert the boot image to a sparse bundle hdiutil convert /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.dmg -format UDSP -o /tmp/Yosemite # Increase the sparse bundle capacity to accommodate the packages hdiutil resize -size 8g /tmp/Yosemite.sparseimage # Mount the sparse bundle for package addition hdiutil attach /tmp/Yosemite.sparseimage -noverify -nobrowse -mountpoint /Volumes/install_build # Remove Package link and replace with actual files rm /Volumes/install_build/System/Installation/Packages cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/Packages /Volumes/install_build/System/Installation/ # Copy Yosemite installer dependencies cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/install_build/BaseSystem.chunklist cp -rp /Volumes/install_app/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/install_build/BaseSystem.dmg # Unmount the installer image hdiutil detach /Volumes/install_app # Unmount the sparse bundle hdiutil detach /Volumes/install_build # Resize the partition in the sparse bundle to remove any free space hdiutil resize -size `hdiutil resize -limits /tmp/Yosemite.sparseimage | tail -n 1 | awk '{ print $1 }'`b /tmp/Yosemite.sparseimage # Convert the sparse bundle to ISO/CD master hdiutil convert /tmp/Yosemite.sparseimage -format UDTO -o /tmp/Yosemite # Remove the sparse bundle rm /tmp/Yosemite.sparseimage # Rename the ISO and move it to the desktop mv /tmp/Yosemite.cdr ~/Desktop/Yosemite.iso 3 - Burn the .ISO in Pendrive, and enjoy!

  12. Hello I've followed guides for Snow Leopard and Lion but they're not working for me. When i do all the steps for preparing usb installation stick, the drive is not bootable (chamaleon, unibootx, chimera) are not recognising them. Is there anyone who will help me with that? For now I'm using Windows 7 and my netbook has 3GB RAM, unlocked Bios (AHCI support and overclocked FSP). About two weeks ago I've tried with iAtkos SL3, it hangs at the DSDT error (I don't remember whole sentence but it told me that there's no file)
