  1. Olá, Tenho um PC onde instalei Windows 8, Ubuntu 14.04 e OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 (ja funcionando internet e som da P5Q) Windows em um HD e Linux + OS X em outro. 1-Gostaria de saber se o GRUB2 consegue rodar o mavericks sozinho ou se vai conseguir isso apenas em conjunto com o Chameleon. Tentei sem sucesso no grub o seguinte comando: insmod hfsplus set root='(hd0,1)' multiboot /boot Pergunto isso pois segundo instruções do @oldnapalm neste link http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/243344-boot-do-snow-leopard-pelo-grub2/ "O GRUB2 ainda não faz boot do Snow Leopard diretamente, apenas do Leopard" e a duvida é justamente se o Mavericks aceita o boot direto ou não.
  2. Hi, It has been weeks that I am trying to have Chameleon to see Lubuntu. No success… Tried the grub-install /dev/sdd3, used boot-repair, created a separate partition for /boot, no success… Played with gparted flags, no success. I am on a Asus X99 Deluxe, with this setup: SSD formatted MBR with Windows and Yosemite FAT - "System Reserved" used to boot Windows 10 (upgraded from Win7) FAT - "Windows" where Windows 10 is FAT - untitled partition - used for Windows 10 Recovery HFS+ - "Yosemite" where Mac OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite is installed <- CHAMELEON IS INSTALLED HERE HD formatted GPT with Lubuntu FAT - "EFI" GPT EFI partition EXT3 - /boot used by Lubuntu EXT4 - / used by Lubuntu, main partition used as root / LINUX SWAP HD formatted GPT with a spare Yosemite 10.10.0 install FAT - GPT EFI partition HFS+ - "Test" where a previous Yosemite is installed HD formatted GPT with a clone of my main Yosemite install FAT - GPT EFI partition HFS+ - "Maclone", my Yosemite 10.10.5 clone HFS+ - "Recovery HD" Chameleon sees "System Reserved", "Windows", "Yosemite" from SDD, "Test" from 2nd HD, "Maclone" and "Recovery HD" from 3rd HD (all in green in the list), but no Lubuntu ever… I don't know what to do. I don't understand how Chameleon decides if a partition is bootable (and should be shown) or not. There is no setup to force a partition to show (when there is one to hide a partition that I am using to hide "Windows" since "System Reserved" is the one to boot for Windows). I can boot Lubuntu from bios, choosing the disk, but it would be nice to choose my os from Chameleon. Any idea?

    GRUB2 -> Chameleon

    situation: disk containing osx86 and linux. boot loader was Chameleon, replaced by GRUB2. boot linux and extract Chameleon's i386.zip into /boot/chameleon then edit file /etc/grub.d/40_custom in order to add this lines: menuentry "OSX86 Chameleon Boot Loader" { chainloader /boot/chameleon/i386/boot0 } after save, run update-grub2 done! EDIT: simplification... chainloader pointing to chameleon's boot0 do the trick ________ useful chameleon recovery commands (cd /boot/chameleon/i386) dd if=boot0 of=/dev/disk/by-id/TheDiskThatYouAreUsing bs=440 count=1 dd if=boot1h of=/dev/disk/by-id/ThePartitionWithOsx86OfTheDiscThatYouAreUsing bs=512 count=1 cp boot /the/root/of/your/osx86/mount/point/ dont copy-paste, just take as reference! please use dd (destroyer of disks) with precaution, you can kill a little cat if used wrong! ________ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_%28Unix%29
  4. Hi All! First, apologies in case this tutorial looks shabby to you; I would be glad to edit it as per your feedback. Now for the actual tutorial! I actually first used this trick to install W7 in Legacy mode to a GPT dsk; MS sure would say installing W7 on a GPT requires UEFI, but the i came across this http://reboot.pro/topic/19516-hack-bootmgr-to-boot-windows-in-bios-to-gpt/page-2?do=findComment&comment=184489 Credits then must go to first smart one who came up with the idea, wzyboy This tutorial is aimed towards those users who already have grub2 as their bootloader and don't want to bother install CLOVER alongside it ; sure it is possible through some sorta chainloading thing, but being a total newbie in this matter, I found an arguably much easier, less intrusive way to boot an OS X installation through grub2, and then, with memdisk mojo, through CLOVER. Note please, that this method requires you either have access to an already working OS X installation, or have somewhat working knowledge of dd. So, to sum up, the prerequisites are: Access to working OS X (if it is an OS X just installed on your disk, then you most probably could only boot it throu the media you installed it with) CLOVER installer syslinux https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/boot/syslinux/Testing/ grub2 as the bootloader boot into your OS X; open "Disk Utility", and click on "New Image"; choose a name, like "dmgboot"; its size should be big enough to hold CLOVER; I prodigally chose 120MB; the Format should be "Mac OS X Extended (Journled)"; Encryption must be "None"; Partitions must be "GUID"; "IMAGE FORMAT" must be "read/write"; When you are set, click "Create" and create it! When created, it must actually be mounted if it already is not (but if it is, you obviously needn't mount it ) Now, run the CLOVER installer; when asked where to install the bootloader, chose the actual mount point of the dmg that you have created and mounted when done with the installation, unmount dmg; REMEMBER WHERE IT IS ON YOUR DISK! I would actually recommend you to copy the dmg to / like so : sudo cp <your dmg> / now, "sudo make" the syslinux you just downloaded; you need the "memdisk" there when done, locate the memdisk; in my case, it's under /syslinux/bios/memdisk/memdisk Now restart! BUT before that, you must know what the "address" of you partition is; in my case, it was the 12th partition on my first dsk, i.e, (hd0,gpt12) in the grub menu, hit 'c'; you'll enter a command-like env. there, type: linux16 <path to the memdisk> initrd16 <your OS X partition addr>/path/to/the/dmg/you/just/created boot for example, mine is: linux16 /syslinux/bios/memdisk/memdisk initrd16 (hd0,gpt12)/dmgboot.dmg boot Then, Whoa! the os x will boot!
  5. Una la solucion que me sirvio para arrancar hackintosh desde grub2. Hay varias formas para hacer arranque múltiple los tres sistemas operativos mas conocidos: Windows, Linux, Mac Os X entre otros. En internet hay varios tutoriales para hacerlo el desde el arranque de Mac para que el bootloader “chameleon” o “Clover” lo haga. Pero por mi falta de experiencia en el sistema de la manzana y su modificación hackintosh me enfoque mas en el booteo desde linux donde le capto un poquito mas. Busque tutoriales para bootear hackintosh desde grub 2 pero solo encontré como hacerlo con las primeras versiones de Grub. y después de buscar tanto la solución la encontré a la vuelta de la esquina. Resulta que fuentes oficiales sobre como personalizar Grub 2 había un instrucción para añadir entradas personalizadas y justamente tenían como ejemplo de como hacerlo para Hackintosh, pero bueno aquí los pasos: todo se resume a editar un archivo principal que no es el archivo grub.conf o el menu.lst si no un archivo especialmente dedicado para eso y así no echar a perder nada verificamos cual es el disco duro o la partición donde eta instalada nuestro “Mac” para eso en la consola escribir el siguiente comando: sudo fdisk –l y mostrara la lista de particiones ahí buscamos la que sea nfsx donde esta instalado el Mac, también pueden usar el “Gparted” o la utilidad de discos por si no son muy aficionados a depender de la consola Sabiendo eso procedemos a agregar la entrada para ello tendremos que abrir nuestro explorador de archivos en modo superusuario tecleando: sudo nautilus, sudo nemo, sudo caja o el nombre de su explorador de archivos. nos dirigimos a /etc/grb.d/ y luego buscamos el archivo que diga “40_custom” y lo editamos o si prefieren poner solamente este comando en la consola: sudo gedit /etc/grub.d/40_custom una vez abierto el archivo agregamos el siguiente codigo al final: menuentry “Hackintosh” { insmod hfsplus set root=(hd0,msdos1) #change X to the Mac SL partition multiboot /boot } cambiamos hd0,msdos1 por el disco o la partición donde este instalado el hackintosh por ejemplo si la partición es sda1 tendria que ser hd0,msdos1 o si es sdb2 seria hd1,msdos2ósea que el orden es abecedario-numérico: 0=a 1=b 2=c si este método no funciona y te aparece un error como “boot no found” o de otro tipo por no instalar bien el chameleon o Clover podemos poner un comando que buscara el archivo de booteo sin importar en que disco este: menuentry “OSX” { insmod hfsplus search –file –set=root /boot multiboot /boot } si les sirve o tienen alguna duda dejen un comentario
