Neither Chameleon 2.3 svn r2434 or r2437 boot OS X 10.10 on my Asus P5Q Pro.......the "LEDs" for the OS X 10.10 and Recovery HD icons stay red when they are selected.....whereas with Chameleon 2.2 svn r2401there is no Recovery HD icon present but  the  HDD icon "LED" for OS X 10.10 changes to green when icon is selected and OS X 10.10 boots successfully.....I suspect this could also be true for my Asus P5Q E and Asus P5N 32E SLI Plus.....

It works to run Yosemite here, but with 2437 my Core 2 Quad Q6600 shows as "1,6 GHz Unknown" in system profiler, while using 2401 it shows as "2,4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon".

Could you please post the two bdmesg(2437&2401)?

 

Also your serial number is correctly showed?

Hi verdant.

This issue happened also with the precompiled rev posted by Bit Shoveler --> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/231075-chameleon-23svn-official-pkg-installer-binaries/page-124?p=2074627&do=findComment&comment=2074627 ? Or you try compile yourself from the svn, and noticed the same behaviour?

Hi  Fabio

 

Firstly, many thanks for continuing to support the Chameleon boot loader for the many BIOS MOBO owners like myself......:)

 

I used the pkg installer in this link http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=downloads&module=display&section=download&do=version_download&id=286

Many thanks for people who still contribute.

Long time ago blackosx maid some nice icons to associate to the recovery partition... (I just commit those icons to the main trunk commit 2455)

Recovery_Icons_by_blackosx.zip

I trick a bit the gui source code to "show" that icons and hopefully fix the problem with your red/green "crazy" UI

 

Here the mod binaries...

Hi ErmaC,

 

I have the following test set up:

 

Asus P5Q-E MOBO with two 1TB WDC WD1003FZEX Advanced Format HDDs as OS X system drives:

 

HDD 1. Partitioned as MBR

 

1:OSX64_Boot    15.1 GB    disk1s1

2:OSX64_1068    150.1 GB   disk1s2
3:OSX64_1075    150.1 GB   disk1s3
4:OSX64_1085    150.1 GB   disk1s5
5:OSX64_1095    150.1 GB   disk1s6
6:OSX64_10xx    150.1 GB   disk1s7 - no OS X yet
7:OSX64_1010    150.1 GB   disk1s8
8:OSX32_1068    84.3 GB    disk1s9

 

HDD 2. Partitioned as GPT

 

1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk4s1
2:OSX64_Boot    15.0 GB    disk4s2
3:OSX64_1068    150.0 GB   disk4s3
4:OSX64_1075    150.0 GB   disk4s4
5:OSX64_1085    150.0 GB   disk4s5
6:OSX64_1095    150.0 GB   disk4s6
7:OSX64_10xx    150.0 GB   disk4s7 - no OS X yet
8:OSX64_1010    149.5 GB   disk4s8
9:OSX64_1010 hidden Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk4s9
10:OSX32_1058    83.9 GB    disk4s10

 

I have installed (using Chameleon Wizard) Chameleon v2.3svn r2455 boot0, b00t1h and /boot to the volumes in red shown above.

 

I can boot all the above OS X system volumes normally, EXCEPT for OS X 10.10, i.e. using the Chameleon boot loader installed on each HDD (tested {a} via the BIOS boot menu [F8]) and {b} via the MBR HDD Chameleon boot loader (my 1st boot device)

 

When booting I do not get

 

boot0: GPT
boot0: test
boot0: test
boot0: GPT
boot0: test
boot0: test
boot0: error

 

 

Nevertheless, when I select and boot OSX64_1010 on the MBR HDD and OSX64_1010 / OSX64_1010 hidden Apple_Boot Recovery HD on the GPT HDD, the boot progress of each OS X 10.10 partition hangs at loading AppleKextExcludeList.kext, going to a blank GUI screen before re-booting.....

 

However, when I boot the PC from my OS X Yosemite Installer USB flash drive (with Chameleon v2.3svn r2455 boot0, b00t1h and /boot installed) via the BIOS boot menu [F8], I can then select and boot successfully into the Desktop of both OSX64_1010 on the MBR HDD and OSX64_1010 on the GPT HDD........

 

Manual installation of boot1h to the boot sector of each OS X 10.10 partition using

diskutil unmount /dev/rdiskXsY
dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdiskXsY bs=4096

makes no difference……I have not tried using dd from a live Linux installer…..nor dd if=boot1h of=/dev/diskXsY bs=4096 etc.

 

My /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist for the OS X Yosemite Installer and the OSX64_1010 system on the MBR HDD and OSX64_1010 system on the GPT HDD is:

<dict>
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1920x1080x32</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>No</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>/System/Library/Kernels/kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>kext-dev-mode=1 -v</string>
<key>PciRoot</key>
<string>1</string>   
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>5</string>
<key>UseKernelCache</key>
<string>Yes</string>   
</dict>

My graphics is enabled via DSDT.

 

The same happens with Chameleon v2.2svn r2401 installed on both my OS X Yosemite Installer USB flash drive and the HDDs / HDD volumes mentioned above…..

 

........BUT not with Chameleon v2.2svn r2401 installed on my Asus P5Q Pro HDDs and my Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus HDDs and the only difference is that I am not using Advanced Format HDDs as system drives in those PCs....I have not tried Chameleon v2.3svn r2455 yet on these PCs......

 

Do you have any suggestions as to what the issue(s) and solution(s) may be......?

 

Thanks in advance

verdant

 

UPDATE: Using

 

sudo dd if=/dev/rdiskXsY of=testfile bs=512 count=2

 

outputs:

 

testfile.tiff

 

indicating I believe that boot1h is installed to the boot sector of my GPT OSX 10.10 system volume.....

Hi oldnapalm...

I'm not sure... But can you test a "forced" CPU type in SMBIOS with SMcputype?

 

ErmaC

I have a strange behavior on my yosemite installation.

 

As on the screenshot I'm not able to get a serial number:

attachicon.gifserialunavailable.png

 

It's really strange because while booting from HD I can't get a serial number, booting from an USB key bootloader I can get it correctely!

 

any help?

 

thank you

Same as for oldnapalm

Hi verdant.

I need to find where the problem came from...

so I need your help with a couple of test (I "deleted" from my local repo the original 2401 so I "recreated it)

Let me know the result with this 2401 if is ok I go step by step adding all the latest commit until the actual final release...

If not more step back are needed.

Hi ErmaC

 

Unfortunately no change with r2468 - Chameleon still does not boot OS X 10.10 direct from the Advanced Format HDD - only indirectly via a USB flash drive with Chameleon installed on it.

Fabio, what you say about inject by default the kext-dev-mode=1 KF if the OS is 10.10??

Ok :P

 

Here we go...

 

kext-dev-mod.png

 

NOTE: actually chameleon don't check if the flag already exist in the org.chameleon.Boot.plist. (I mean duplicated… more fine tuning is needed)

....also UseKernelCache if is equal To YES must be removed because is already injected, based on SLE, kernelcache time.

Usefull only if you want your old kernelcache load, and see how the new kexts just installed that does not work :hysterical: 

Fabio, but /Library/Extensions time is not monitorized?

Fabio, it work as expected!

 

Enoch_InstallLog.webarchive.zip

 

bdmesg_from_10.10.txt.zip (booted using UseKernelCache=No to see if all unsigned kexts works---> Ok)

 

bdmesg_from_10.9.5.txt.zip (too se if the kext-dev-mode=1 was injected on a Old OS --> no trace---> Ok)

 

Thanks.... can I have a build for Pandora with this implementation? :lol:

boots OX 10.10 successfully on my Advanced Format HDDs.....

 

 

Many thanks for solving my problem, BUT why does using

 

<key>Kernel</key>

<string>/System/Library/Kernels/kernel</string>

 

and

 

<key>UseKernelCache</key>

<string>Yes</string>

 

in org.chameleon.Boot.plist prevent booting of OS X 10.10 on my Advanced Format HDDs BUT NOT on my non-Advanced Format HDDs.....?

 

 

UPDATE: Also, 2469_Test2_kextDevFlag injects kext-dev-mode=1 into OS X 10.10 on my Advanced Format HDDs, using

 

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>-v</string>

 

and again with no

 

<key>Kernel</key>

<string>/System/Library/Kernels/kernel</string>

 

and

 

<key>UseKernelCache</key>

<string>Yes</string>

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.

      Hi All
       
      I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation:
      - MSI B350 PC Mate
      - Ryzen 5 - 2600
      - Radeon Pro 580 GPU
      - 4 x 8GB DDR4
      (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) 
       
      Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes...
      ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2"
      Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX.
       
      So can someone help...

      I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen.
      In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1
      In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67
      In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well)
       
      But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help...
      Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...

      Just so you all know I actually have done something. I have pushed the source to both my github and to sourceforge, please commit to the experimental branch and I will merge it into the stable branch once it is safe. Also, nothing meaningful happens yet so don't get too excited. Only the Visual studio build works right now. I haven't set up the Xcode or Makefile builds yet, I'm trying to do them now.
