  1. Version 10.14.x

    1,814 downloads

    Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR HFS+J partition. To use those patched files you must follow HowTo to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store. The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.14 HFS Firmware check by crazybirdy. What is this patched OSInstaller doing? 1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR partition. 2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware". 3. Patch to stop auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.14. 4. This patched MBR OSInstaller will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+J partition. 5. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR HFS+J and GPT HFS+J partition (GPT+recovery). No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch. What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method? As the following.... 1. createinstallmedia method, needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format. 2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12), install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format. We can manually format as MBR or GPT, HFS+ or APFS on installation screen like as 10.12. We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13 and 10.14 on installation screen now. Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, and 10.14 future versions, I think so. 3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+, remove files, no more update), install via stage 2 automatically, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format. How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)? Just use MBR-EasyInstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT. Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.

How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store? A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_1014fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

  6. I have a question regarding Clover's boot loader. I have 3 SSDs, one for Mac, one for Windows, and one for Data. When the boot loader loads, I have one Mac partition and 4 Windows partitions (the 4 include Windows OS, Windows System Reserved, an unknown Windows partition, and Data). Is there any way I can minimize it to just 1 Mac and 1 Windows partition? I've done some research, and realized that it has something to do with adding a string with a UUID. The thing is, the 3 partitions that I want to be hidden are not on a GPT drive. They are instead in the MBR partition style. So the UUID is not the same as the examples I've found online. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Note: I've attached my bootlog just in case. If you need any additional info, please let me know. Thanks in advance! bootlog.log.txt

  8. Hi, I just got a new 2TB WD Caviar Blue drive to mainly keep my files and have Mac OS X on it too. I have it partitioned in MBR with 1 partition of 200GB HFS+ and the remainder a 1.62.. NTFS. I can boot the installer USB just fine and install ML on the 200GB partition but when I install chimera(or chameleon or clover) to it and try to reboot using the new bootloader it hangs at boot0: error and for clover boot0af: error (OR if I install boot0ss, boot0ss: error). The drive's sector size is 512bytes, checked via diskutil and windows fsutil(no 4K advanced format). The drive is connected at Marvell 88SE9172 and previously(with same results) at X79 Sata3 both 6Gb/s and 3Gb/s. Any ideas? EDIT: It really was a 4K drive, note to anyone with this drive: All WD20EAR* drives use 4K advanced format but the firmware emulates 512B sectoring, software will report they are 512B physical sectors, they are NOT!

    [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

    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!
  12. hi i have install snow leopard 10.6.3 (iatkos s3 v2) on my hp dv6-2155ee laptop fully working with Ethernet, trackpad, sound and display(no WiFi, Bluetooth and the USB port can't read USB drive) . I try to install iatkos l2 on my computer but fail because of disk sector error so i use Niresh12495-lion. When i have to select the hard drive for the installation it said i need to format the Hard drive to GUID partition table (GPT). Do anyone know how to change mbr to gpt partition scheme without losing any data???? If i can't change the scheme, can i install window 7 on GPT partition scheme??????????
  13. Hi ladies and gentlemen, long time lurker, first time poster. After my first (and succesfull) Hackintosh installation, my Windows 8 MBR was messed up by Chameleon. In order to be able to boot again, I would need to make the Windows 8 HDD (I have OS X on one HDD and Windows 8 on another one) active via terminal (right?) and repair via a rescue disk/usb. Something tells me that my OS X boot files would be messed up by Windows after the repair. So, in order to boot OS X again, I would need to repair it using a myHack USB, and install Chameleon again. Chameleon would mess up the W8 MBR again (and we'll be back to the same problem). What is the correct procedure to boot Windows 8 (MBR, according to Disk Utility) and OS X (GPT, according to DU)?
  14. Hi I have been trying to get my hackintosh working for a few days now with no luck. I have followed the following guide using clover: http://osxarena.com/2015/10/guide-install-mac-osx-el-capitan-on-hackintosh-pc-with-clover-vanilla-installation-method/ I have legacy bios with MBR HDD I have managed to get into clover bootloader and at first I was getting a ACPI kernel panic, but after disabling DSDT fixes that problem was cured. However, near the end of the Apple loading screen a white/orange screen appears (i could kind of see a rainbow cursor why i could move). Since it was a graphics issue I tried disabling inject intel and instead this time it just shutdown (no restart) at around 4/5 of the loading bar. I am not exactly sure how I should be configuring my config.plist, I have tried reading the clover wiki but it is too complicated for me :/. I have also tried existing configs but when I use those I just freeze even before the clover bootloader. im running 1366x768 res intel HD graphics (driver info doesnt show me exact one) Note: My sister whose Mac im using is starting to get irritated, and im running out of bribes Also lmk if I should provide more information, screenshots w/ verbose etc Thanks in advance
  15. 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
  16. Hey everyone, After some freelance work has shown an increase in Mac users requesting help, I decided to get Mac OS X ML installed on my PC. A few days were spent researching into the methods/procedures and quirks necessary to install ML successfully. Now i've successfully prepared ML on a USB flashdisk and reached the installer without any issues/extra command lines required. However, the Disk Utility does not recognize any of my internal hardisks...it only picks up one of my DVD drives and the USB flashdisk. After researching, my HDD's partition tables are set to MBR...and ML only wants GUID/GPT. There is an MBR fix that replaces 'OSInstall' and 'OSInstall.mpkg' in the relevant folders on the ML installer on the USB flashdisk to rectify this. Despite the fix, the result is the same....it won't recognize my HDD's. Then there is the matter of the DSDT. My motherboard is the MSi Big Bang X-Power LGA 1366 (MS 7666), which isn't on the archive database of motherboard DSDT's. So, by popular practice, the DSDT.aml is created and patched with specific motherboard DSDT patch/.txt from the database. But as my boards patch isn't there, I found a program called DSDTFixer which can take an original/unmodified DSDT.aml and patch it. There were no errors during the patching and it created the DSDT.aml for my board. The contents made from DSDTFixer were: dsdt.aml , dsdt.dsl , dsdt.orig.aml ...so I assume the dsdt.aml is the patched one. So I placed the dsdt.aml in the /Extras folder on the USB flashdisk. I don't know if this attributes to whether ML will read my HDD's or not...but, irrespective of whether I place the dsdt.aml in the /Extras folder or not (also, I can confirm that when booting off the USB flashdisk, viewing the progress in verbose mode, it definintely loads the dsdt.aml), the HDD's are still not read. Now, I prepared ML (while testing) in two ways: 1. Manually prepping ML through Disk Utility and installing Chameleon_2.1svn_r1820_trunk_10.8.pkg (with/without MBR fix) 2. Using ###### - Mountain Lion (with/without MBR fix) The result is the same with either preparation. I also tested using and not using FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext (don't know if it's related but i'm sharing what i've attempted so far). My system specs are: Intel Core i7 920 LGA 1366 CPU MSi Big Bang X-Power LGA 1366 Mobo (MS 7666) 3x2GB Corsair Dominator 2000MHz RAM Realtek ALC889 chipset I have multiple HDD's, with the primary one (where my OS's go) configured with 2 partitions; one for Windows (NTFS) and one for Mac (tried NTFS/FAT..no go, in regards to recognition in ML installer). All HDD's are connected via SATA 3G ports. My BIOS is configured to AHCI completely. Also, all SpeedStep/C-States have been disabled (for consistant OCing). That's all I can think of at the moment.....what do you guys think? I'm really interested in getting this up-and-running, but the HDD recognition is the only thing holding this back. What could it be? Any feedback is appreciated.
  17. I'm experiencing an issue in Clover; I can boot OS X just fine, but if I try to select any Windows install whether legacy or UEFI it will stop immediately. I don't care about booting my legacy Windows 7 installs, but I do want to use Clover to boot my Windows 10TP Rufus Installer USB stick in EFI mode to have an all GPT disk on my BIOS-only machine. I always make my Windows installers with Rufus in Windows 10TP, from a respective ISO image. I used fusion71au's advice found in post #5 in this thread to get the Windows EFI to show in Clover, but when I hit space and then select 'run bootmgfw.efi', Clover will instantly hang until I press another key, at which point it will 'refresh' back to the Clover boot selection screen. It ALMOST looks like it's loading something, but then you hit another key and it just goes back to the previous screen. Here's what I've tried to get around this: I've tried different USB ports. (tend to stick to my USB 2.0 though) I've tried different USB settings in my BIOS. (not a lot to change.) I've unlocked my BIOS to look for more settings. (still not a lot) I've tried different USB Sticks I've tried to select both GPT for UEFI machines as well as MBR for UEFI and BIOS in Rufus (same result) I've tried this with both the Windows 10TP installer and the Windows 7 installer. (Same result) I've tried several different versions of Clover. Currently have one stick that's running 3168 and one that if I remember correctly is running 2999. (Same result) I'm going to make a video right after I post this, but it feels like I've exhausted every option here. Has anyone experienced something similar while using Clover? I wanna say that this is the last little hurdle I have before finally obtaining an all-GPT, BIOS only machine, and I've been struggling with this one for quite awhile, so even the smallest amount of advice is greatly appreciated. The video I'm going to post here is using Clover r3168 and does not ever show Legacy Windows installs which I do have a couple of, one on each of my two internal HDD's. It doesn't matter for what I'm doing, but regardless I don't know why that is and very well could be inline with the same configuration that is causing Clover to not boot those and other Windows installations. My other stick shows them just fine, but doesn't have a theme. Here's the video: https://youtu.be/t6_4RBuOgbQ I even just started running through, selectinhg 'bootmgr.efi' again and again and just slapped one of the keys to get it to 'refresh'. Any one have any advice for this one?
  18. I've recently installed Mac OS X 10.8 using ##### on a custom built computer. Since I already had Windows installed, I had to install it using the MBR partition scheme. Turns out that I can't boot without the installation USB Drive. Everytime I boot the HDD, it shows "boot0: done". Only that message, no "boot0: Test" or "boot0: MBR". The active partition is the one thats Mac OS X is installed in. What do I have to do to fix this without having to reinstall Windows and Mac OS X again?
  19. Greetings! I've sucessfully installed Yosemite on my new machine (GB Z97X, i7 4790K) using Clover in UEFI mode so it's time to install Windows to run some games, however when I boot from Windows install USB drive, the ruddy windows tell me that they can not use the free partition because it's MBR instead of GPT, which it isn't. Disk Utility in OS X clearly shows it's GPT: Partition Map Scheme : GUID Partition Table Disk Identifier : disk0 Media Name : Samsung SSD 850 PRO 512GB Media Can you tell what's going on and how to fix it, please? Thanks!
  20. 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.
  21. Hi guys, i'm new here, if this thread isn't in the right section please move it. Well, i'm not new to hackintosh but i'm facing a new problem and i don't wanna ruin things. Basicly Windows 7 installation delete Chamaleon boot loader at pc start, now i can access to Yosemite only using the USB (wich contain yosemite installation), I wanna install Chameleon bootloader back. this was the configuration before ruin things. Dual boot with Yosemite 10.10.0 and Windows 7 HP x64 actually like this Now with the USB boot it loads like this, with the USB being "Yosemite Zone" I ruined thing when for other reason I had to install Win7 again, so at installation part i didn't touched System partition (100 MB), delete only the partion with old Win and installed the new one while leaving OSX partition untouched. At the boot the PC just load directly Windows 7 without showing Chamaleon. The first time i tried to boot OSX with the USB the boot failed with screen errors, so next usb boot i insert "-x -f -v" and then the OSX booted fine. Turn off the pc tried the USB boot this time without any arguments just select OSX partition and it actually worked fine. How can I install back Chamaleon bootloader back without messing up thing while keeping both OSX and Windows partition selection at boot?? Tried with EasyBCD but it didn't work. Thanks!
  22. Hello everyone, i want to ask something about kernel panic. I got this kernel panic after i tried to install clover bootloader on my HDD (MBR type, el capitan installed with MBR patch). Here's the picture of it: Before, i always use usb to boot into my el capitan, because whenever i tried to install clover on my HDD it always got error. And somehow last time i try to install clover r3330 on my HDD it got succeed , so i restart my el capitan. But, after i restart the boot option from hdd still not showing (still boot to windows directly), and i try to boot from usbdrive clover, it got KP like the picture above. How to fix that problem? Thanks before ---- Lenovo z480 core i7 3610QM ivy bridge intel HD4000 ---- Edited 2: Already fix the problem, i am very ashame that the cause i still use voodooHDA but not the appleHDADisabler is not present, that's why it becomes error. Thank you everyone
