    [RISOLTO] partizionamento disco

    Ciao ragazzi, dopo un pò di peregrinare qua e la, sono riuscito ad installare la retail di snow leopard... tuttavia mi si è presentato il seguente problema... Vorrei eseguire un duaL BOOT con win 7 ed avere anche una terza partizione dati sulla quale memorizzare tutti i documenti in modo tale da non dover portare tutto su disco esterno in caso di formattazione e reinstallazione... per quanto riguarda il dual boot, ho trovato moltissime guide, tuttavia quando vado ad installare win dopo il partizionamento fatto con snow leopard, all'atto della formattazione e successiva selezione, l'installer di win mi dice che non posso selezionare quella partizione poichè facente parte di una tabella di partizionamento guid... forse ho una versione di win che non va bene? come faccio a creare una terza partizione dati che sia visibile sia da snow che da win? vi ringrazio anticipatamente
  2. Hello everyone! I am still a newbie here, and with OSx86 I have a problem. I have just recently installed Yosemite Zone by Niresh on my Dell Studio 1537. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo and 3 GB of ram. I had no trouble installing it from my flash drive. When I try to boot from my HDD, (with -v), it goes ok for a while, and then starts giving me the error "FireWire GUID 00000000000000 Is Invalid!" every few seconds. It gets that about halfway through the boot process. It won't stop and move on at any point. I dont know what to do to get rid of it. (Still a newbie, like i said) Any solutions? -Plachostoms
  3. I was running on my laptop, an Asus G1Sn, both win7 and SnowLeopard retail, thanks to chameleon 2.0 RC3 and everything was fine. Few days ago I decided to re-install win but unfortunately, it install the win bootloader too so now i cannot boot OsX and chameleon just disappeared. Honestly i don't remember how i did it the first time, was long time ago, but for sure I installed mac running chameleon from usb and after I put it on my laptop, and before i was running a non-vanilla version of OsX. All I've tried so far was completely useless, is there any way to run from usb or install chameleon using win or a linux live-cd?? Or even better reanimate the previous chameleon? Thanks a lot.

    GUID to MBR?

    I have 2 hard drives on my hackintosh system. One is a 250Gb with windows 7 installed on it, the other is 1TB that is used for mac. The 250 is on its way out I fear, and therefor would like to move the Windows install over to the TB HDD. Would I have to take OSX off as an image and repartition, or would windows cope with it on gpt? Thanks for your help in advance!
  5. Hey there mates, I'm about to add an SSD to my rig for Windows and I plan on using my current 1TB drive for storage and games. I was just wondering if I could format that as GUID (or GPT in windows) and allocate 800GB~ for storage (formatted as NTFS) and the other 200GB~ for OS X (formatted as Journaled)? Would that be fine or will I run into a problem? Thanks
  6. Preface: After a long time trying different methods, this is the one that finally worked. Credits to ctugt for the inspiration. This is a CLI guide for an UEFI motherboard with a GUID partitioned disk. On this configuration, both OS X and Windows require an EFI partition, and it can host all files necessary to boot both OS's, with a little tinkering. The only conflict is with the two files in [EFI partition]/EFI/BOOT/. This will be explained further in step 4. You will require the use of the Clover boot loader. Step 1: Create bootable USB's for both OS X and Windows. I used OS X 10.9.4 and Windows Server 2012 R2, though you can perform the exact same steps on most recent OS X versions and Windows 8 or 8.1 as they are practically the same. Step 2: OS X installation Boot your OS X USB. Select from the menu bar: Utilities -> Terminal. We begin by clearing the partition table (delete all data) on the disk we are going to dual boot from. In most cases this is disk0. In the gpt add commands, replace the size of the partition with your own sizes. Note that the actual size of the partition is roughly half the size shown here (my drive in the example is 256 GB, with 1 200MB partition and 2 128GB partitions). Use the gpt show command if you are uncertain. After creating the GPT, we verify it using gpt show and notice the similarities with the output of diskutil list. Following this, we initialise the partitions with FAT32, JHFSX, and exFAT, respectively. The last two commands mounts the JHFSX partition and installs OS X onto it. diskutil unmountDisk disk0 gpt destroy disk0 diskutil unmountDisk disk0 gpt create -f disk0 diskutil unmountDisk disk0 gpt add -b 34 -s 409600 -t windows disk0 gpt add -b 409634 -s 249854262 -t hfs disk0 gpt add -b 250263896 -s 249854263 -t windows disk0 gpt show disk0 diskutil list disk0 newfs_msdos -F 32 -v EFI disk0s1 newfs_hfs -s -J -v OS\ X disk0s2 newfs_exfat -v Windows disk0s3 diskutil mount disk0s2 installer -pkg /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg -target /Volumes/OS\ X/ -lang en Step 3: Windows installation Boot your Windows USB. Press Shift + F12 at any part of the installation to open a command prompt. The first 4 commands mount the EFI partition for later use. The next 3 commands format the Windows partition as NTFS, which is required for installing Windows onto it. The next 2 commands just verify what we previously did. exit exits from diskpart mode. I am unsure if the c: command really is necessary, but I have not tried without it. Adventure at your own risk. The next command installs Windows onto the disk. If you are installing Windows 8 or 8.1, replace /index:2 with /index:1. The final command creates files necessary for booting Windows. diskpart sel disk 0 sel part 1 assign letter=e sel part 3 format fs=ntfs quick label=Windows assign letter=c list part list vol exit c: dism /apply-image /imagefile:d:\sources\install.wim /index:2 /applydir:c:\ bcdboot c:\windows /s e: Step 4: Configuring the EFI partition for dual boot Boot your OS X USB again. Select from the menu bar: Utilities -> Terminal. These commands remove two conflicting files created by the Windows installer with the bcdboot command we entered earlier. Removing these and replacing them with Clover allows you to boot both OS's. You should be able to boot Windows either from your UEFI boot menu (usually accessed by pressing F12 at startup) or by selecting "Windows EFI Boot" from Clover. diskutil mount disk0s1 diskutil mount disk1s1 cp -rfX /Volumes/EFI\ 1/ /Volumes/EFI/ Step 5: Reinstallation If you ever need to reinstall your OS's, the procedure is much shorter as the disk is already partitioned with the correct EFI files in place, but uses some of the same commands from earlier. For OS X: newfs_hfs -s -J -v OS\ X disk0s2 installer -pkg /System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg -target /Volumes/OS\ X/ -lang en For Windows: diskpart sel disk 0 sel part 3 format fs=ntfs quick label=Windows assign letter=c exit dism /apply-image /imagefile:d:\sources\install.wim /index:2 /applydir:c:\ Thanks for taking the time to read my guide. If anything is unclear, or you have a question regarding something related, please do not be afraid to ask. Good luck!

  7. Ciao InsanelyGuys, chi è qui da qualche anno ha condiviso col sottoscritto parecchie storie di hack Colgo l'occasione per salutare con affetto tutti questi colonnelli della vecchia guardia è un piacere ritrovarvi. (mi riferisco al secondo PC in firma) Vi scrivo per chiedere se conoscete un software buono per recuperare dati da un disco con tabella Guid, filesystem HFS+. Usando windows, con Paragon HFS+, ho toccato la cartella Extra di Lion (sostituito due kext). Dopo il primo reboot mi dice da windows se doppio clicco o su Extra o su User (per copiarmi i dati): "impossibile accedere al percorso specificato". Chameleon all'avvio di Lion non riesce a leggere niente dal filesystem, infatti anche con -f -v, non carica nessun driver, morale non parte, rimane in attesa dei driver. Chameleon funziona, avvia Snow sull'altra partizione. Snow non accede alla cartella Extra o User di Lion. Idem da terminale: "input/output error". Devo assolutamente recuperare almeno 200GB di dati dentro /User di Lion, avete qualche dritta ragazzi ? Grazie a tutti ciao
  8. I'm making some progress now on my first Hackintosh build, and I have successfully installed and booted Mountain Lion on my system. I am wanting to have the option to boot to Windows 7 on a second partition. Here's what I've done: Partitioned my Hackintosh hard drive with a GUID map, 1 HFS+ partition (successfully installed OSX 10.8 here), 1 FAT partition Used CloneZilla to copy my current Windows 7 Bootcamp partition from my MacBook Pro to the FAT parition on my Hackintosh drive Powered up Hackintosh, selected Windows partition from Chameleon bootloader, got "A disk read error occurred" and had to restart computer. I did some research, and everything I've read suggests using gptsync to turn the partition map into a hybrid GUID/MBR, so I did this. Everybody suggesting this had installed Windows from a Windows installer instead of copying from a disk image. Tried booting Windows again, got the same Chameleon error. Now, I could try installing Windows using an installer instead of the disk image. However, this would take some work (I don't have a Windows 7 disk, so I would have to download the installer from Digital River or install XP and use my Windows 7 upgrade). So if there's something I'm overlooking that would make this work from the image copy, I'd love to know about it.
