  1. I'm currently working on a new version of INSTAHackintosh. Purpose: This will enable user to make fully customisable Recovery, Installer and Installed. This is taking a completely different approach, no createmedia/startosinstall blah blah blah. Mojave installed to MBR/HFS no patch needed. You will be able to add kexts to the Installer as well as some Apps. You can do the same with the Recovery and Installed. Will be able to make a USB/ISO or Install straight to HD. Usage: Example: To HD from Mojave Install High Sierra 10.13.6 to HD Install SecUpd2018-003HighSierra.pkg to HD Install NVIDIA Web Driver 387. to HD Install Applications to HD Install Kexts to HD Reboot to HD, Fully Updated with working video Will post a beta version ( HD only ) when it is done EDIT: would anybody happen to have an old version of my INSTAHackintosh? I've lost all my copies. No sense re-inventing the wheel.
  2. Premise: the following explanation is only to exploit the little APFS Recovery (less than 600 MB) embedded inside the APFS File System, so avoiding an external USB Installer, you can't reinstall macOS from here but use just the Utilities (Terminal, DiskUtility) in case of emergency, however as known from a Recovery Terminal can do a lot of things, especially troubleshooting an unbootable macOS. To those who have installed Mojave on APFS file system with a GUID/GPT Scheme (I suppose it will work even on MBR scheme), I have managed to "fix" the "APFS Recovery Volume" to make it bootable from any computer (capable of HighSierra and Mojave) with USB input devices (trackpad, keyboard, USB mouse and so on) responsive, working wifi and everything else, just follow next steps, totally safe and harmless for any Mojave installation, after booting normally from your Mojave APFS Volume, launch Terminal and type:diskutil apfs list{locate your "APFS Recovery Volume" on diskXs3 [for an internal "APFS Container" is typically mounted on disk1s3]} On APFS scheme the "APFS Recovery Volume" is tipically on the 3rd (hidden) partition.diskutil mount diskXs3 open /Volumes/Recoverylanding on Finder, double click on the "random-numbers-letters" folder (it's the gpt UUID folder where Recovery stores itself), once inside rename these files:prelinkedkernel into prelinkedkernelbackup immutablekernel into immutablekernelbackup PlatformSupport.plist into PlatformSupportbackupDon't close this opened Finder window yet, once you renamed those 3 files, now you have to open a new Finder window, then from this new Finder window go into your Mojave path: /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/ while inside this path copy the file prelinkedkernel into the previous Finder window exactly where you renamed those 3 files lastly rename this fresh copied file from prelinkedkernel to immutablekernelNow you have a working APFS Recovery Volume. Note for those who use Clover bootloader in the config.plist you have to don't "Hide" the APFS Preboot and Recovery hidden partition, otherwise you can't use the APFS Recovery.
  3. Salve ragazzi, avrei bisogno di un aiutino. Ho letto un po' in giro ma non ho trovato nulla che mi andasse bene. Vi spiego: avevo il problema del computer che non si spegneva, così ho deciso di fare un ripristino con Time Machine e tornare ad una data dove sapevo che il computer si poteva spegnere e riavviare senza problemi. Una volta fatto però nel bootloader compare solamente il disco di avvio di MacOs HighSierra, e manca proprio la partizione di ripristino. Ovviamente nel caso il cui mi dovesse servire posso sempre usare la chiavetta che ho usato per installarlo, però mi sembra strano che "sparisca" così. C'è un modo per "reinserirla"? Specifiche del mio pc: i5 7400, ASUS PRIME-H270 PLUS, GTX 1050ti. Il sistema (High Sierra 10.13.6) è installato in un SSD (nell'altro ho windows, ma da quanto ho installato HS non l'ho mai collegato). Configurato come iMac Retina 4k, 21.5 inch, 2017 Grazie in anticipo
  4. I make recovery partition for mavericks boot by CloverEFI. Find my Make work fine,and recovery partition Bootable. but... I'm choise Re-install and it's result can verify system please contact applecare.I try to disconnect to internet and it's ask for internet connect and contact apple care. How to use re-install by recovery parition.
  5. So, I installed mavericks using Clover with UEFI from the actual setup app. I do NOT make a USB bootable version, clover booted straight into the app and it installed. I noticed from the Logs that it also made a Recovery HD partition automatically. I upgraded to DP 2 as the ATI drivers were broken. I then turned on FileVault and restarted my computer. It appears that it is currently encrypting my laptop. i will let you guys know if this works in a day or so as it has a lot to encrypt. Cheers CaptSilver
  6. What tools can I use to resize and create a secondary HFSJ partition to install a secondary copy of Lion on? From what I can tell, Apple's GUI Disk Utility wants to reformat my entire drive to simply create a secondary partition. I've been looking at the terminal commands a bit, and I'm guessing there are some commands I can use to make this happen. To provide a bit of history, I have been running Hackintosh as of when I got my Sabertooth x58 board with an i7-950 processor a couple years ago. From what I read at the time, my hardware seemed quite compatible. I dove right in and I had successfully installed and booted Lion 10.7.2. Upgrading to 10.7.3 was not a big deal. But 10.7.4 caused me a little more troubles. So far, I had been fine using my Lion 10.7.2 installer USB stick as a form of recovery, but 10.7.4 ended up requiring me to downgrade a kext to get it booting again. I ended up using my Windows 7 install with Macdrive to aid in copying over kexts, but I have realized it would be a lot easier if I had a secondary Lion install to fall back to. I apologize if this belongs in another section, but I figured this one would fit the best as I do have a working installation.
  7. I can not hide the partition recovery of Mavericks. Following the guides managed to hide all other partitions that did not want to, but recovery remains among the options the bootloader, anyone can tell me the secret?
  8. Hi guys, Been a while since I've posted here on these forums, but anyway... I'm currently trying to customize the Mac OS X Lion Recovery disc that you can create from the Mac OS X Recovery Partition (I've created a recovery USB stick). I'm wanting to add Carbon Copy Cloner to the drive so I can run it without having to have a full install of Mac OS X on a USB drive just to clone/image my Macs. I've added the application to the /Applications folder, however the application doesn't run when I try and launch it from the Terminal (error is: Carbon Copy Cloner.app is a directory). The usual open -a Carbon Copy Cloner.app doesn't work as it is an unsupported command. Has anyone here made a customized Mac OS X install/recovery disk with additional tools on it? If so, what tips/steps were involved? Google searching for something like this just yields the endless loop of creating a bootable USB drive from the Mac OS X installer.

    Eliminare Recovery HD

    Ciao a tutti. Una precisazione..... All'avvio del computer nella schermata di boot mi compare l'opzione recovery hd . Non si può togliere? Grazie mille.
  10. Hello everyone, ever since installing the security update at the end of January, I've been having two issues. The first is the kernel panic that happens every time I try to boot. After much research, here and elsewhere, I learned that the issue is Lilu.kext which I did not update prior to installing the security update. So now I have the latest version downloaded to a USB drive, but I cannot copy it to the hackintosh... Every time I try to boot into Recovery, the system just locks up. So I tried replacing the file via the UEFI shell and again from Kali, and in both cases I couldn't because both OS's see the Mac's file system as "read-only." I did some research on how to fix Recovery and found that I need to put FakeSMC.kext in the /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other directory on the Recovery HD, which I cannot do for the same reason I can't replace the Lilu file (the HD is read-only to all other OS's). I tried booting off my old Snow Leopard CD, and that doesn't work either; every time I try it just quits mid-boot, resets the computer and reboots into Clover. Can anyone give me any suggestions? I'm out of ideas at this point.
