Cannot Boot From Hard Disk

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I've successfully installed iATKOS L2 on my laptop. However, I cannot boot from the hard disk no matter what I try. In other words, Chameleon doesn't load, and I have to use a USB stick with Chameleon on it to boot into my OS X install. I would see Chameleon loading with "boot0: done," but it would immediately take me to the Windows bootloader instead of Chameleon. NOTE: Windows was preinstalled on this laptop, and it is using the MBR partition table. So anyways, I consulted my friend, who is pretty good with hackintoshing. He told me to make the OS X partition active. I did that successfully, but now I get a boot0 error when booting up. It just gets stuck there, so I have to boot from my USB drive which has Chameleon installed on it to choose an operating system. My friend then said that I probably have a hard drive with 4k boot sectors. I followed a guide on MacBreaker (http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/02/hackintosh-boot0-error.html) to copy the boot1h file to my OS X install from my iATKOS installer drive. However, that didn't work, and I still get the boot0 error when booting up. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

TheRacerMaster

So that I'm not assuming anything. Is your laptop HDD SATA?

hi..

 

I usually use the retail one...

but if you can boot from other source, download the "chameleon wizard" and install chameleon on Boot0hfs... seems your boot is looking the boot on boot0 and can't find it

I don't know how and what iAtkos installed previously on boot ..I don't use this distro..

good lucky...

may be you should reformat hdd and reinstall osx lion ..>>>iaktos l2 and once installation is finished , boot with usb into your hdd and install chameleon.

 

is your bios set for ahci mode ??what are your bios settings, please post.

 

looks like you still have windows boot loader on your hdd, try gui partition .

Sorry for responding so late,

My BIOS is missing a lot of stuff. A LOT. No execute bit, no SATA mode, etc. So I don't really know. I'm pretty sure it's AHCI because iATKOS L2 runs just fine...so I don't really know. And yes, I am partitioned as MBR. I might back up my Windows files and repartition this weekend.

Sigh...I can't believe I was so silly...I installed OS X to a logical partition ;). I formatted the logical partition, created a primary partition, and installed OS X Lion retail on it. Chameleon is working great!

      Recently transition from ###### to Clover.
      All work great on my raging Dell530 (with Quad-core Xeon E5450).
      I can triple boot Snow-Leopard, Mavericks or Yosemite.
      Really love the way clover does dynamic patching.
       
      Decided to add a second drive that had the original Dell-installed Windows Vista.
       
      Question for the community: Is it even possible to boot legacy Vista on the second drive using Clover ?
       
      I ask because I cannot. I have searched and all topics discuss UEFI boot which is OK for Win7 and up.
      Vista does not support UEFI boot.
      And this good old Dell only has BIOS.
       
      Clover GUI lists two new partitions after the Recovery HD partition.
      The last one is called "Boot Windows from OS" (screenshot0):
       
      When I hit enter, the screen clears to black and Clover windows badge is displayed but does not boot.
      If I hit enter again, I see the Clover GUI again.
       
      It just will not boot Vista.
       
      Disk details are as shown:
      OSX-YS-Pro:~ MacNB$ diskutil list /dev/disk0    #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER    0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *1.0 TB     disk0    1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1    2:                  Apple_HFS OSX-SL                  803.3 GB   disk0s2    3:                  Apple_HFS OSX-MV                  153.3 GB   disk0s3    4:                  Apple_HFS OSX-YS                  42.4 GB    disk0s4    5:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s5 /dev/disk1    #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER    0:     FDisk_partition_scheme                        *750.2 GB   disk1    1:                 DOS_FAT_16 DellUtility             74.0 MB    disk1s1    2:               Windows_NTFS RECOVERY                10.7 GB    disk1s2    3:               Windows_NTFS OS                      739.3 GB   disk1s3 OSX-YS-Pro:~ MacNB$ OSX-YS-Pro:~ MacNB$ sudo fdisk440 /dev/disk1 Password: Disk: /dev/disk1 geometry: 91201/255/63 [1465149168 sectors] Signature: 0xAA55          Starting       Ending  #: id  cyl  hd sec -  cyl  hd sec [     start -       size] ------------------------------------------------------------------------  1: 06    0   1   1 -    8 254  63 [        63 -     144522] DOS > 32MB    2: 07    9  13   5 - 1023 254  63 [    145408 -   20971520] NTFS         *3: 07 1023 254  63 - 1023 254  63 [  21116928 - 1444028416] NTFS          4: 00    0   0   0 -    0   0   0 [         0 -          0] unused       OSX-YS-Pro:~ MacNB$    FDISK shows that the 3rd partition is ACTIVE on the Vista drive (disk1).
       
      Clover is installed on EFI partition on the OS X drive (disk0).
       
      Config.plist attached.
      debug.log attached.
       
      If I boot from a Chameleon USB-stick, I can select the OS partition and it boots, but Clover does not.
       
      Edit: I can boot Vista via the BIOS by hitting F12 and selecting the vista hdd.

      Hi there.
      I'm new to this site but not totally new to hack. I've had a hack since 10.4 and the latest version I ran was 10.9, not totally fixed but it worked to what I needed. Now I want to make the machine run as good as it can. I can see there has been a lot of changes/upgrades/new solutions since I installed my hack and I have a hard time to catch up.  
      I've been able to boot and install macOSX and now I need the POST installation.
      I tried to install the clover EFI boot loader with these settings:
       
      and found the DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml from HERE
      found the apfs.efi
      and placed it in EFI -> EFI -> CLOVER -> driver64
      and these kext in here:

       
       
      But when I boot it up this is the first bootscreen I have. No partions, no mouse control, no nothing.

      if I exit clover this screen appear.

      and now everything works. 
       
      What is wrong?
      Cheers
      Soren
