Chameleon RC5 1159 vs issue

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I decided to install the newest chameleon because my Lion was giving me random panics for no reason at all. I tried my friends chameleon from his hard drive which was new and Lion ran good without any panics at all. So I get the new Chameleon and install it, reboot. When I choose my Lion drive it says Mach_kernel missing. What can one person do to correct this?

IMPORTANT!

This update renames com.apple.Boot.plist to org.chameleon.Boot.plist in /Extra,

now chameleon uses org.chameleon.Boot.plist instead of old com.apple.Boot.plist

mach_kernel zipped to circumvent file size limit of this board. Original from GM.

i need mach_kernel emailed to me asap for GM

No you don't. You need to correct your com.apple.Boot.plist so that it points to the correct kernel.

Chameleon does not delete or replace mach_kernel, it is still at the root of your system drive where it always was.

This update renames com.apple.Boot.plist to org.chameleon.Boot.plist in /Extra,

now chameleon uses org.chameleon.Boot.plist instead of old com.apple.Boot.plist

/Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist will still work for now, Chameleon displays a warning message telling you to rename it.

 

More importantly, all instances of 'manufacter' in /Extra/smbios.plist must be changed to the correct spelling, manufacturer.

    • Hi,Bergui.  I am certainly happy you finally solved your problem  but I am confused.  What you did is what you were supposed to do to do to begin with.  What were you doing before? You mean you were creating your USB with something else than a Mac? 
    • Is there a simple guide somewhere that explains what to do to to help out testing your ssdt's? I got clover configurator, ioregexplorer and some basic knowledge but it's hard to find out where to start.  Also... if I was about to apply an ssdt... is it easily reversible or do I have do an reinstall every time I screw up?   Edit: Admire your work by the way. I've been google'n this for years. Hat's off! 
    •   Hi Maldon, great guide! I got my old Dell 780 (LGA775) running High Sierra 10.13.4 nicely, thank you!   I have no audio and I see where you mention "Device HDEF + AppleALC + Lilu". I have AppleALC + Lilu in my KEXT folder but not sure what "Device HDEF" is. 
      Also when it goes to sleep it takes like 2 minutes to wake. I have a Q9400 quad core + Nvidia Quadro FX580 but don't have a DSDT for it. Can you help me with a DSDT?   Here are my RunMe Results https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Duv3XYyW4UhziDVVWdquwxYcGQ-D5tvm/view?usp=sharing   SPECS: Dell 780 MT, Q9400 2.66GHz Core2Quad Core, Nvidia Quadro FX580 
    • I've tried these several methods of booting into clover, but it still skips. I even double checked that i was using your Clover folder. Bios settings should be the same too... this is getting really strange here.
