how to get into osx when it won't load

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when I put in a dsdt, kext or change something the *Boot.plist , osx hangs. What I have been doing is removing the harddrive, putting it in a usb enclosure and mounting it in my osx lion VM, this is too difficult. I did try using the osx base system, but all I can do is see the drives with disk utility. I tried booting with -s and it still hangs in the same place.

<p>You could use the terminal from an iAtkos dvd or install OS X to a USB HDD and keep it somewhere safe for rescue.</p>

<p>Boot with -F to ignore flags in boot.plist</p>

<p>Boot with -f to ignore caches</p>
