    Problemi DUALBOOT Con Clover

    Ciao ragazzi! Grazie a questo forum con gente fantastica, sono riuscito a installare OS X e in seguito Win 10 su Clover SULLO STESSO HARD DISK Ho un problema, di solito utilizzo Kali Linux, la famosa versione di linux in usb in live Ora avrei la necessita di dedicargli 15gb di partizione del mio Hard Disk PER INSTALLARLA, e l'ho fatto effettivamente creando una partizione VUOTA tramite utility disco di Sierra. Il problema sorge quando io vado a riavviare il pc e quindi ritrovandomi nella schermata di clover, e vedo sempre il solito OSX e il recovery Osx e al posto di Windows 10, mi trovo la partizione di 15gb che avevo creato per windows(con l'icona di windows) Siccome ho paura di perdere i dati importanti che avevo su windows, non ho continuato installando Kali, ma mi sono fermato e ho eliminato la partizione sempre da utility di Sierra e come per magia, riavvio e Win10 è di nuovo lì dove dovrebbe stare Appena creo la partizione vuota, clover me la sostituisce Che devo fare raga? Io voglio OSX,Win10 (Che già ho) e Kali(Solo 15gb) sullo stesso hard disk Senza perdere dati di Win o Mac Gengik ho visto in precedenti discussioni tue, di andare in GUI da clover config . e togliere Windows da quelli nascosti e l'ho fatto, ma il risultato non cambia. Grazie per la lettura
  2. How to Install MacOSX 10.9 Mavericks on a MSI GS70 Laptop This guide will show you how to get a basic functioning install of 10.9 Mavericks on a GS70 - a thin, fast, gaming laptop by MSI (details here, hw specs below). Not all hardware is functioning, please check list below, and share if you find ways to get things working. Please keep posts focused on problems, helpful hints, and solutions. FYI, my machine is triple booting Linux Mint, Windows 8, and MacOSX 10.9. I mostly use MacOS to fix my friends' computers and for iOS development, not everyday use. I haven't taken the time to get sleep, mic input, etc. working properly. Hopefully some folks can use this as a base to get more things functional. Big thank you to RehabMan, rockinron_1, EMlyDinEsH, and the makers of Clover, Kext Wizard, DSDT Editor, and all the other great, necessary tools. Working Basic Install Trackpad (multi-touch) Keyboard (including some function keys and glowy keyboard) Sound (output speakers/headphones) USB Bluetooth Shutdown Integrated Intel Graphics Not Working Yet Internal wireless Ethernet Sound input Sleep NVidia accelerated graphics with optimus Needed Tools: A working MacOS installation Mavericks install dmg The latest Clover (version 2330 at time of writing): http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/files/Installer/ Kext Wizard: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/253395-kext-wizard-easy-to-use-kext-installer-and-more/ Clover Configurator: http://www.osx86.net/files/file/49-clover-configuratorconverter/ FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from Vanilla Guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289062-109-mavericks-simple-vanilla-hackintosh-install-guide/ mach_kernel from RehabMan:https://www.google.fr/#q=mach_kernel+from+RehabMan Patched AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze: https://www.google.fr/search?q=Patched+AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext+from+Mieze&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:fr:official&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb&gfe_rd=cr&ei=6e61UrigAoyG8gOex4DAAQ Elan Touchpad drivers, ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext and ApplePS2Controller.kext from EMlyDinEsH:http://http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ An 8gb+ USB key A usb mouse and keyboard (possibly optional...) VoodooHDA kext (not sure if this is necessary) Step 1: Create the USB Installer (taken mostly from Vanilla Install guide) In a previous MacOSX install, use DiskUtility to Partition a USB disk with 1 HFS+ Partition, make sure GUID partion map is selected in the options. Mount your Mavericks dmg image Go to the mounted image, right click on "Mavericks.app" and choose "Show Contents" Go to "Contents/Shared Support" and mount InstallESD.dmg Mount BaseSystem.dmg by typing the following in terminal: open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg In DiskUtility, go to the "OS X Base System", Restore it to your USB disk. Navigate to /System/Installation on your USB drive. Delete the “Packages” link, then copy the Packages folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location. Copy the following kext's to /System/Library/Extensions on your USB stick. FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext files from the Vanilla Guide The patched AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext from Mieze (optional, untested) You can try copying the Elan Touchpad drivers as well, read Step 5 "Touchpad and Keyboard" section below and delete approriate kexts, this could save you from needing a USB keyboard/mouse during installation Install Clover to the usb drive, customize the install with the following options: Bootloader->Install boot0af in MBR CloverEFI->64-bits SATA Themes->Choose one (Black_Green_Moody is nice) Drivers64->XhciDxe-64 Drivers64UEFI->OsxAptioFixDrv-64 Copy the mach_kernel file from RehabMan to the root of the USB drive Step 2: Installing OS X Boot into the installer, I use reFind bootloader and the USB disk just shows up when it's plugged in, you should be able to select the boot order in your bios to boot from the USB key if you don't have another bootloader installed Select "Options". Do the following: under the DSDTfixmask menu, disable "fix display" under the Graphics menu, select "Inject EDID" (inject Intel should already be selected) Now boot into the installer (return to the menu with all the OS icons and select the USB key. It'll read "Boot Mac OSX HFS+" or something) If you did not install the Elan kexts, you will have to use a USB keyboard and mouse for the install. Install OS X (use a HFS+ partition on a drive partitioned with a GUID partition map, MacOSX is a good name for the partition) Boot back into the installer like you just did early (yes select all those options) Select "Utilities" from the top and then Terminal You need to copy all those kext's you installed on the USB drive to your new installation partition. Type in the following lines, replacing MacOSX with the actual name of the partition you installed to (hint: after entering the first one, press the up arrow to save yourself some typing): cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2ElanTouchpad.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /Volumes/MacOSX/System/Library/Extensions/ Likewise, copy the patched mach_kernel from your USB drive to the install, replacing the original- cp –R /mach_kernel /Volumes/MacOSX/ Now type "reboot" and hit enter Step 3: Intial Reboot Reboot again into the installer, choosing the same options as before BUT boot from the hard-drive, not the USB drive As MacOSX 10.9 pops up, do a little dance of joy. Install Clover onto your hard-drive, choosing the same options as before. Install Clover Configurator and run it. Do the following: Go to File->Open on the top bar and choose /EFI/Clover/config.plist (this is your current Clover configuration) In the ACPI tab, deselect FixDisplay. Make sure the DSDT name is DSDT.aml Under Graphics, select Inject EDID Choose File->Save (now you no longer have to select those options at boot time) Step 4: Touchpad and Keyboard Download EMlyDinEsH's Elan drivers (latest is 2.8.3 at time of writing): http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ In finder, go to /System/Library/Extensions and delete the following if you can find them: ApplePS2Controller, VoodooPS2Controller, AppleACPIPS2Nub, ApplePS2Keyboard and anything that says Elan Touchpad. Using Kext Wizard, install ApplePS2Controller and ApplePS2ElanTouchpad kexts Reboot and enjoy. My keyboard glows,using my windows settings. Also, note: the touchpad is a little jerky... I think this is because of the graphics driver, but it's functional. Step 5: Ext4 (for linux peeps) Buy or try the trial of Paragon Extfs... I couldn't get anything else to read my partitions. They overcharge, buy hey, it works... Step 6: Audio (output) A bit complicated. You need to patch your DSDT, install an updated HDA driver, and maybe install VoodooHDA. I had VoodooHDA installed before I did the rest and I just left it installed... I am not sure if it is required or makes things worse (maybe input works without it?) I dunno. I would try without it first and then install it after if you need it. Download a Java runtime for 10.9 (google JavaForOSX2013-05.dmg) Download DSDT Editor (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/223205-dsdt-editor-and-patcher/ ) Download RehabMan's audio 12 layout patch: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch/blob/master/audio_HDEF-layout12.txt Edit the patch and remove all the instances of "\n" Run DSDT editor and Choose File->Extract DSDT from the top bar, this will get your DSDT from your BIOS Choose Patch->Open from the top bar, and select the audio 12 patch Select Patch Now choose File->Save DSL from the top bar and save this to your Desktop as DSDT.aml Now copy this to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin Now download and use Kext Wizard to install the AppleHDA.kext from RehabMan found here: (reference: here) Restart and cheer! If it doesn't work, or you want more controls, install VoodooHDA. Make sure PCM is turned up in the VoodooHDA control panel thing. If you need mic input, etc. working, the DSDT patch is probably where you need to be digging. Post results please. Step 7: USB Wireless You will need to either install a wireless card that works with MacOS (advanced, warranty-voiding, numerous guides found elsewhere on this forum) or else buy yourself a compatible usb wireless adapter (easy, cheap). I bought this one for 8$ and it works perfectly with the drivers on the CD it came with: GMYLE Wireless 11n USB Adapter Step 8: Final notes If the computer goes to sleep it will plant, so go into the power settings and tell it not to go to sleep! (if you fix this, please post here) No networking... buy yourself a Mavericks compatible usb network adapter (will let you know when I get one working) Give credit and donations to the fine people that made these tools and patches, I just assembled them to make it work on this dreamy computer. I will try to post a zip file with some of these kexts, etc. later. If you are having trouble, in the clover boot options, add "-v" (without quotes) to the boot options. This will give a more verbose output and may indicate the issue If you are not using Clover, the busratio for this computer is 24. Adding "busratio=24" to the boot-up options (without quotes) might help for other loaders (Clover autodetects this) If you get some extra hardware working, please let us know! MSI GS70 Hardware Specifications: CPU: i7-4700HQ (2.4GHz, Haswell) Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz Accelerated Graphics: NVidia GTX 765M Integrated Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600 (8086:0416) Audio: Creative X-Fi.

  3. Hey everyone, I've been having some strange issues trying to triple boot on separate discs with Clover. I installed Clover to my main SSD drive and I've got a Mavericks install on there working flawlessly. I also have a Windows 8.1 install on a separate GPT disk in UEFI-mode. Booting is not a problem after setting the appropriate path in the Clover config. However, I have been ripping my hair out trying to get a properly working Linux install. I have tried: Install to a separate MBR disk and installing grub directly to the MBR (/dev/sda for example), Clover shows the entry but loading the entry just seems to refresh the screen and doesn't do anything, there is also no info displayed when hitting the spacebar Install to a separate MBR disk and installing grub to the ext4 partition (e.g. /dev/sda1), Clover also shows the entry and when I select it, I get the grub bootloader screen with an unresponsive keyboard. Then it seems to try and boot the selected entry but simply restarts the computer. Booting through the BIOS without clover works though. Install to a separate GPT disk, letting the installer (fedora) set everything up the way it wants (in UEFI mode), it creates an EFI partition in FAT32 and puts grub there. Clover can see the partition and booting seems to work very briefly, but the system complains it can't mount the root partition and falls back to initramfs. Booting without clover works fine in this case as well. I have also tried installing grub manually to the EFI partition, but it wouldn't create a grubx64.efi file and the appropriate commands did not seem to work. I would be really grateful if you could give me some advice here! Bootlog: http://pastebin.com/AFtuF1gN config.plist: http://pastebin.com/gf1C0Bp5
  4. Hi all, its been a long time since i post here. I have caugth interested on linux, this time Arch linux and at this point I have no more hackintosh in my machine. So for the pure Arch install, you can use evolution linux, it carry a simple installation to Arch linux, It is a rolling release, Arch linux, in general, it is just one time install and it will update upon demand of your, no newer version. I have cinnamon desktop, and sddm as log in manager, i have yaourt installed and tkpacman for package manager, mate screensaver. So if anyone like to try it, welcome to it. Edit: i use gufw for firewall, ans run as root in terminal:" systemctl enable ufw" to enable and start on startup. Networkmanager to manage network.

  6. 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.
  7. Hello, I'm wondering if is there any chance I could run Mac OS X Mavericks on a Linux Virtualbox host with AMD X2 CPU ? Worth a try or it's a dead end anyway ? If not, any advices is welcome !
  8. I'm not sure how right or wrong my idea is, but I have been wanting to share this with someone for ages now. It may sound crazy and impossible to some but pretty possible to others. Anyway, let this thread be open for discussion. So here is my idea: Creating a really stripped down version of Linux with just the drivers and the modules to run OS X in a virtual environment (Xen or VirtualBox). Linux would disable the need for some drivers on the system, since it would be able to simply interpret all it needs in its own way, acting as one big driver? Such a Linux setup would leave loads of resources for the guest OS to use. I will admit I am unaware of how the main OS deals with the guest OS and its request, such as sound playback, pluggable devices etc. So, would this be possible and useful, at all? Or should I forget it and carry on with my life?
  9. Hi there, I have decided to put a little bit of advice on this idea - how to keep all your files in once place, across all your OSes. This generally has to be a planned choice before you set up your computer: working through this in retrospect can be quite a pain in the neck. The technique here is to use a common partition for everything: Your Documents, Music, Videos, Pictures, etc. Step 1 - Partition your hard drive correctly To have a common partition for all your files, it has to be accessible to all your OSes. This means in the first three partitions of a GPT/GUID formatted hard drive (if you install Windows using UEFI, then you can put it anywhere. However, I would still recommend to keep it at the start of the drive just in case). You also need to ensure that your hard drive is the right format. NTFS will make it read-only by default on Mac and Linux, and generally only be read-write from Windows (yes, there are ways around it, but this is more tricky). HFS+ requires a commercial solution for Windows called MacDrive, and for Linux, it is read-only when the drive is journaled. Ext2/3/4 is generally difficult to set up on Windows and Mac. FAT also has a limitation to maximum file size, and has issues when you create a partition over 32GB. Hence, my personal recommendation is that you format a large partition as exFAT near the start of your hard drive. This can be done in Disk Utility, or if you make a FAT partition, you can then format it later in Windows to exFAT. Step 2 - Configuring your OSes to use the drive Mac and Windows will be able to detect your partition and mount it automatically. Linux? Not immediately. Also, you want to make sure saving things are as easy as possible. I am not an advocate for storing {censored} loads of stuff to the desktop, and I keep things in Documents, Videos, Music, Pictures, Downloads, etc. I will walk through how to make sure that everything works the way you want. ASSUMPTIONS I am assuming first of all that: the partition is the second one on your first hard drive (after EFI boot): On linux, it will be sda2. On mac it will be disk0s2. I am also calling the drive common : you can call it whatever you want. On our exFAT partition, I suggest making it look like this: A folder for your user Folders in that folder of: Documents Downloads Music Pictures Videos Linux exFAT by default is not installed on linux. No problem however, we can easily fix that. Open up a terminal and type in: sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils If it doesnt exist, and you are using ubuntu, try this: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:relan/exfat sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install exfat-fuse exfat-utils This will allow you to mount exFAT partitions. Second thing we need is to make sure it mounts on boot. In your terminal, sudo nano /etc/fstab (or use your favourite editor) and put this line at the bottom: /dev/sda2 /common exfat rw,async,umask=0 0 0 (Again, check the assumptions bit I put. Change each bit that is different for you in this line, otherwise it won't work). Make your folder and mount it: sudo mkdir /common mount /common and viola - your common partition is ready in linux. Mapping your folders. This is for convenience purposes - so when you save your files, they will all be in the same place.   cd rm -rf Documents Downloads Music Pictures Videos (NOTE: PLEASE MAKE SURE THESE FOLDERS ARE EMPTY FIRST! I am not taking responsibility for lost data) (Please check your files first) ln -s /common/<your user here>/Documents ln -s /common/<your user here>/Downloads ln -s /common/<your user here>/Music ln -s /common/<your user here>/Pictures ln -s /common/<your user here>/Videos Now in your home directory, all those folders will link to the common drive on boot. Windows Thankfully Windows will recognise exFAT on boot, and assign it a letter name. All you have to do in this instance is to go through your Windows Libraries in My Computer, and map everything to the drive. If things don't work, you can use this tool here: http://zornsoftware.codenature.info/?page_id=37&did=2 For Windows 8, it does things a bit differently (do the above as well). Open up My Computer, and see the list of folders. You can right click on them, go to properties, and change the paths one by one. Mac Similar to linux, but the partition should auto mount. cd cd rm -rf Documents Downloads Music Pictures Videos (NOTE: PLEASE MAKE SURE THESE FOLDERS ARE EMPTY FIRST! I am not taking responsibility for lost data) (Please check your files first) ln -s /Volumes/common/<your user here>/Documents ln -s /Volumes/common/<your user here>/Downloads ln -s /Volumes/common/<your user here>/Music ln -s /Volumes/common/<your user here>/Pictures ln -s /Volumes/common/<your user here>/Videos Other Notes For your web browsers, I suggest manually changing the download location to your common drive. Occasionally, I have had to scan the exFAT partition on windows manually for errors, but hopefully your experiences should be better. Happy multi-booting

    Need DSDT for Lenovo B50-70

    Hi, I am trying the following procedure to install Snow Leopard on my new Lenovo B50-70 from a RHEL version of Linux already installed in one partition ... this is just what I need as described in the following post ... I have got it all going except that the OSx that I have put into a HFS+ partition on the drive0 will not boot up, or not seen as a boot partition by the bios. Any suggestions as to why this might fail ... I am guessing that I need to change the DSDT ... if so does anyone have a Lenovo B50-70 DSTD that you are willing to share ??? Linux install process from here -- http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=1072.0 Also where is the DSDT located in the Osx distribution that I can switch ??? Cheers !
  11. Hi I hope someone can please help. My previously working vmware image of Mac OSx no longer boots in Ubuntu 15.10. I've re-applied the unlocker and patches but I can't get it to work. The Apple logo appears and the progress bar gets to half way across (albeit very very slowly) and then gets no further. Is there any way to see the boot process and where it gets stuck or what the error is? Thanks for any help at all.
  12. I'm so close to successfully getting my tripple boot running - shamefully I've been trying to get it running on/off now for a couple months - giving up with frustration. This time around I've had a bit more patience. Can someone look at everything I'm doing and let me know if there's any easy solve that isn't outlined anywhere? Here're the steps I take in setting up my tripple boot: -Re-install Mac OS Lion on Macbook Air 4,2 -Install reFit -Repartition (win = 30GB, Linux=24GB, Swap=6GB) -Install Windows 7 on /dev/sda4 (this is not the bootcamp installer, just plain windows installer) -Install bootcamp drivers in Windows -Sync reFit -Install Xubuntu (ext4, mount at /, grub is on /dev/sda5, swap is /dev/sda6) -Sync reFit At this point I have successfully installed three operating systems, I haven't done any configuration. This is where I get frustrated: when I boot my computer, it goes into reFit successfully. I see three options for booting, Mac, Windows, Linux. Mac and Windows work ok, however, if I select Linux it boots into Windows. Anyone know how to fix this or of any steps I missed? Attached are two pictures, one of "diskutil list" and another of the refit partition analyzer. Any help is really appreciated. Every post I find about tipple boots just seem to work magically without any extra steps. Clearly that's not the case. Any ideas? Thanks!
  13. Having problems emptying my trash can after delete about 12GB of junk I had copied from my brother Windows PC hard drive. I was backing up his data so I could completely wipe his PC. After I finished copying back his data to his computer, I just went and dragged the entire HD image to the trash (oops). I have delete large video files and multiple DVD images before in my Mac, but for some reason the trash did not empty this time. I tried Secure empty trash which usually takes care of stubborn deletes. And even after a reboot it still shows I have my trash can filled. I also tried: rm -rf ~/.Trash/* It is not emptying the trash can. Both with and without the "sudo". Any ideas on what to do? I recently upgraded the 10.7.5 supplemental without problems. TIA Currently running OS X 10.7.5 / OS X 10.6.8 / Ubuntu Studio 12.04 / Windows XP Boots to Lion with Chamaleon, 3 internal HD (OSs) & 1 external HD (data)
  14. Hello All, I recently came into possession of a MBP with a broken hinge/bezel and decided to throw Mountain Lion and Ubuntu on it. Mountain Lion install was the easy part, took a bit longer than expected, never the less done and over with. I installed rEFIt Partitioned my 500GB drive (100GB for Ubuntu) Used unetbootin on 4 different USB drives (Sandisk 4GB, PNY 4GB, noname 1GB, Corsair 8GB) as I read that Mac hardware doesn't like USB drives often. Got 4 bootable USB drives (working on a separate Win laptop) Burned the x64 ISO to a DVD as well just for safe measure. Restart into the rEFIt menu, run partition tool, and choose Boot Legacy OS from HD/CD/DVD/"ubuntu usb" etc whatever the media is and every time this is done, I get a "missing OS" message and a blinking cursor. I even tried booting the boot img and get to the grub screen choose any one of the 2 install options as well as the live option and just sit staring at a blank screen. Let it sit for hours on one drive and still nothing. Tried holding C to boot off CD instead of rEFIt, cleared NVRAM, reset SMC, MacOSx works flawlessly. Linux installer just will not load. What am I doing wrong here? I cant possibly have THAT bad of luck with USB drives. Thanks for the help. /pyro PS. If anyone has or knows where I can find the hinge for the MBP I would be most appreciative as I don't feel like spending 800$ on the entire display from Apple just for a hinge/bezel

    Steganography in Linux

    Hi fellows! I bring a tutorial about steganography, made by myself, the art of concealing things in plain sight! (text files within pictures or sound files) I think this should apply to Mac OS X, there you can use a GUI program called "Steg" This tut is for Linux only! It is a very straightforward process, Hope you learn howto do it and put it to good use hahhaha

  17. Sono riuscito proprio poche ore fa ad installare Mountain Lion sul mio computer in firma, solo che ora dovrei sistemare il boot, infatti per ora riesco ad accedere ai tre sistemi operativi in questa maniera: Windows e Linux: Tramite il bootloader realizzato con EasyBCD Mac: Tramite la pennetta USB formattata come MBR e con Chameleon installato. EasyBCD rileva il Mac, però se lo avvio da li mi carica Chameleon 2.0 (sinceramente non so da dove lo va a prendere visto che non l' ho mai installato durante le installazioni del Mac), infatti su quest' ultimo ho installato la versione 2.2 (quella che si trova dentro la pennetta per intenderci, e funziona) solo che non ce la faccio a farlo "pescare" direttamente da EasyBCD. Inoltre ho notato che dalla pennetta rilevo tutto tranne Linux. Lo so che è abbastanza contorta come cosa. Comunque ecco uno schema di come ho settato il mio hard disk: Partizioni primarie: Partizione di sistema Windows (350 MB) NTFS -Attivo- Windows 8.1 (200 GB) NTFS -Avvio- Archivio NTFS (300GB) NTFS Partizioni logiche: Swap Linux (2 GB) Swap Root di Linux (50 GB) EXT4 Mac (Snow Leopard) (30 GB) HFS+ Mac2 (Mountain Lion) (30 GB) HFS+ NB: Allora ho due partizioni per il Mac perchè Snow Leopard mi è servito per installare Mountain Lion. Più che altro vorrei sapere se come ho settato io le partizioni è possibile fare un boot triplo oppure mi conviene cambiare qualcosa. Grazie.
  18. More info at: http://www.thegroovykosak.blogspot.pt Here is a video I made demonstrating the procedure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04SLD2Kft60 Download your distro of choice, in my case Ubuntu Gnome edition Once that is done, use the command that follows to convert the iso to img: 
hdiutil convert -format UDRW ~/path/to/target.iso -o ~/path/to/ubuntu.img 
Note: OS X tends to put the .dmg ending on the output file automatically, delete the ".dmg" ending. Run diskutil list to get the current list of devices Insert your flash media Run diskutil list again and determine the device node assigned to your flash media
(e.g. /dev/disk2) Run
 diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskN 
(replace N with the disk number from the last command; in the previous example, Nwould be 2) Execute the following command while replacing /path/to/downloaded.img with the path where the image file is located; for example, ./ubuntu.img or ./ubuntu.dmg). sudo dd if=/path/to/downloaded.img of=/dev/rdiskN bs=1m Using /dev/rdisk instead of /dev/disk may be faster. Run diskutil eject /dev/diskN and remove your flash media when the command completes Restart your Mac and press Alt while the Mac is restarting to choose the USB-Stick or restart your PC and choose the USb from BIOS. This USB should work for any computer. Note: (If you see the error dd: Invalid number '1m', you are using GNU dd. Use the same command but replace bs=1m with bs=1M. If you see the error dd:/devdiskN: Resource busy, make sure the disk is not in use. Start the Disk Utility.app and unmount (don't eject) the drive. ) Thanks for watching
  19. Hey! I can´t get in my Lion 10.7.4 anymore and I don´t have a working installer atm, so I decided to create one using linux! I created a hfs+ partition and restored BaseSystem/InstallESD files, copied FakeSMC NullPower etc. from a unpacked myhack and installed latest chameleon 2107(?)on it. I also replaced the kernel with the one, which always worked on the installer for me (R:A:W:86)! With a myhack-created installer I simply copied the kernel and started with "-v -f busratio=155 npci=0x2000". If I do the same now, it boots up fine until a KP comes up which says: hfs_lock locking against myself! It seems to be something with the installer, as I get the same error on another pc! http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/1936/20130201153300.jpg Any idea? Thanks!!

    SolydXK OS is a fine tune xfce.

    I tried this one version xfce on virtualbox, it is a great os, found what I am looking for, it include VLC on it, Give it a try at http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=solydxk http://solydxk.com It is responsive and play media out of the box and carry a theme look great. It is work for single monitor, I don't know how to configure dual monitor because it is running with xfce 4.10.
  21. I have a system with Ubuntu and Windows already installed and Grub2 is my bootloader. I intend on using an iatkos build for installation of Mac OSX, where I have a problem is, when I install the iatkos build will the bootloader used for Mac become the primary bootloader, in which case I'll only see Mac as option to boot while Windows and Ubuntu appear missing. I understand this is quite hypothetical but from reading other links about dual boot systems, there's always a few problems, and I can't help but think a triple boot system will cause more problems, which some other users may have encountered and have a fix for. Ideally I'd prefer if Grub2 would remain the main bootloader and let Mac chainload from there, but I'm willing to change if needs be. Either way I want to have all eventualities covered as I don't want to be stuck with just Mac when I go back to college, Ubuntu is the main os of choice for my CS course so I don't want to be stuck in a pickle. Cheers folks

    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
  24. I run VMWare workstation 10.0 on my laptop under Debian GNU/Linux (wheezy.) Amongst others, I had a VM containing Mac OS X originally 10.7 then upgraded up to 10.9. Everything went swimmingly for a while until one day I accidently started up to many VMs and the host machine ran out of RAM and froze solid. I had no option except to power off the machine without doing a proper shutdown. Most of the VMs survived after fscks or the native equivalent with only minor damage. The OS X one is not so good. It seems to boot and gets as far as the login screen but neither the mouse nor the keyboard work. If you leave it long enough it will go to the screensaver so something must be working. I thought I would try booting in single user mode to investigate further but I can't seem to get there. My understanding is that I have to press command (Windows key in my case) + s during boot to enable this right? I don't know if I have the wrong key sequence or VMWare is swallowing it or what. I don't know what else to do. Does anyone have advice for how to fix this?
