  1. Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU: The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way. This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app. TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac. Features: - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process. - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers). - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly). - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too. - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal. - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code. - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk. - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you. - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool. - Uses recent, modern, APIs and SDKs and the Swift 3 language. - Transparent graphics style available (type alt-S or choose from the menu bar: View -> Use transparent style). - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update. - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer. Features that are planned for future versions: - Install and configure [Clover](https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/). - Install kexts into Clover's kexts folder. - Clover drivers customization - Use custom DSDT in Clover - Integrated pre-made Clover config templates database from a remote and open repository. - Support for other languages, at least Italian. # Requirements: - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer). - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer. - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

  4. I have a Mac mini server with Yosemite, and I plugged a VGA Display using a VGA/HDMI adapter. The issue is, when I shut down or restart the server, the display is not recognized, then I need to go to unplug and plug again, and server now recognizes the display. I need to know how to make a logical "reconnection" for the adapter. For example on Windows I use a devcom application to enable or disable the devices. I was reading that the possible solution is using a kextunload command on terminal. I don't know which kextfile I need to "unload" for the HDMI adapter. On terminal: /System/Library/Extensions/ kextunload exampleflile.kext kextload examplefile.kext Anybody have an idea about my issue? Another way to solve it? Thanks in advance Greetings from Mexico.
  5. Hello, I set up a new X99 workstation based on the Intel i7 5960X a few months ago and Yosemite works very well on it. Except of a "small" part I normally use heavily in my daily workflow: The Terminal Here is a descriptionof the problems I detected (maybe more are hidden but due to the problems I encountered I rarely use this workstation for development and fall back to my MacBook or my old Hack for now). The architecture of the system seems to not be recognised correctly. When I try to install homebrew I get an error that it doesn't find the target platform. So I tried to look at uname and found that it doesn't show the current kernel or anything: x99:~ me$ uname -a x99:~ me$ Same strange behaviour goes for find (in my home with quite a few folders and files): x99:~ me$ find . x99:~ me$ After wondering about this I started zsh and tried both commands: f35% find . zsh: exec format error: find f35% uname -a zsh: exec format error: uname What can I think of this? Any idea hear? I can't really imaging what went wrong there and why everything else works. I can throw different image/video apps up and haven't had problems yet. It's only on the Terminal where I'm not sure what's going on and normally I'm quite often using the Terminal as a long time Linux/*nix user and do many stuff with small scripts and use homebrew to install a bunch of tools also. Installation was done with a modified Kernel and a few modified extensions to get it running on the X99 platform.
  6. UPDATE 3- I actually figured out something, thanks to the help of LatinMcG. What appears to be wrong is that the card is rebranded to a brcm subid. The problem now is, what is an apple compatible, and compatible with my card, b/g only subsys ID's. I dont know where i can find subsystem ID's, so if you could give me one for my card, or atleast point me to the right direction, that'd be awesome. UPDATE 2- It seems that my previous hypothesis was invalid. I fixed my computer to load the wifi card at startup and it loads it properly on both windows 7 and ubuntu; however when i try to boot it into snow leopard, it desn't even see the card. Please help, im getting desperate. UPDATE- I belive i (partially) found the problem! The hypothesis is that my card isn't starting when my computer is starting. For example, my card should start up, or turn on, or atleast enable wlan, during the BIOS screen; If not, before Snow Leopard starts up. I figured this out when i went on ubuntu. I had to press the wireless button to enable wireless. The new question now is: How do I make my wifi card so start up during the BIOS, or before Snow Leopard starts? Hey guys! I successfully rebranded my card (ar5007) using iHack13 's guide. When I installed 10.6.1, 2, or 3, A kernel panic would occur. I was able to fix these kernel panics, involving the kexts AirPortBrcm4311.kext and AppleTycmeDriver.kext by going into single mode or windows and deleting them from there. The thing is, that after i successfully boot, my airport card is not recognized. My card should work OTB but it doesn't. Not even system profiler can see it! But how can it not see something that is branded ad an Apple AirPort card? the sub id's are 106b:4e and the card is a b/g only card Here is my lspci -vvnn: 02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc.

  7. 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

    Conditional Key Remapping

    Ok, so I am not sure if this is the best place for this post, but from the descriptions of the categories, it seemed to me to be the most fitting. Anyways, on to the topic of the post: The command key; an incredibly uncomfortable key to use, for me, and with the frequency in which I move between windows and OS X, it is just inconvenient to have to get used to the physical difference that often. So, what I am looking for is a way to remap the command and control functions to the inverse keys, except in terminal (where Control+C is still Control+C). This would obviously have no affect on shortcuts that use Command and Control at the same time as I would be pressing both keys regardless (yes, someone on another forum, actually tried to tell me that this is a reason that such a remap would be a bad idea). Doe anyone out there know of an application that will let me do this. P.S if your response is "Just get used to it", please keep it to your self. I am obviously looking for this solution specifically so I don't have to sit there and be uncomfortable, and so that I can be more productive.
  10. 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!
