Waiting for DSMOS

Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to install 10.8 onto my computer. I booted into Snow Leopard and made a bootable flash drive using myHack. I've gotten past a bunch of kernel panics etc. but I'm now stuck on Waiting for DSMOS... I've tried deleting Don't Steal Mac OS.kext, but it did the same thing. I have fakesmc.kext, and it does load; at the beginning it says 'netkas presents fakesmc etc.'. I'm stuck and really don't know what to do. I have Snow Leopard 10.6.7 installed, so I know it can happen. My system is a Dell Inspiron 1545, 4gb RAM, Intel GMA4500 chipset. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Now I'm stuck at DSMOS Arrived, and then nothing happens. I don't know where to go from here.

Sitting at DSMOS Arrived means that you have graphics problems. Try temporarily removing all kexts named AppleIntelHD* and AppleIntelSNB* and you should get to the Desktop. After that you can work on your graphics problem.

I removed them and it didn't work, still stuck at DSMOS Arrived. Should I put my graphics kexts for my computer onto the flash drive?

I wouldn't worry about the graphics kexts until you can successfully get to the Desktop. Running without the graphics kexts will still give you primitive graphics, just no resolution control or acceleration. You can fix that later when there is something to fix.

 

On your flash drive, look at the file /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist. If it has GraphicsEnabler set to "yes", make it "no". If there is a kernel flag of "arch=i386", remove it. If it has a UseKernelCache set to "yes", set it to "no".

 

Then boot using a boot flag of -x in addition to any other boot flags you normally use like -v.

Um, I didn't find the Chameleon file in my extra folder. Is there supposed to be one there?

What version of chameleon did you use on your flash drive? You need to use a very recent version that has Mountain Lion support or use the newest version of Chimera.

 

There is a version supporting Mountain Lion (ML) on this page: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=231075

 

Update: if you used the latest version of myHack (2.2) then it has the Chameleon that supports ML.

It doesn't work, darn :wallbash: I don't think there's one person that's succesfully installed Mountain Lion onto their 1545. I'm so close, but yet I wonder if it's even possible.

    • @Gengik84  i kext sono aggiornati e messi nella partizione efi per il BT ho cercato in rete e come detto nei precedenti post 2 sono in efi ed uno in l/e.  Potresti dare un'occhiata alla mia efi  e le varie patch dsdt magari c'è qualcosa che non va... https://drive.google.com/open?id=1d7qfHs3KYEWANjtSlKyR29aEbgTFsytd   Grazieeee
    • Hi,  as per your guide, I have purchased the Wifi+bluetooth card you recommend twice! i can't get bluetooth to show up or work. Wifi is working though. I can assure you that i have my USBs fixed properly. still no luck with bluetooth. doesn't even show up in system pref.    "I'm using an original >> Apple BCM943602CS WIFI+bluetooth module and adapter, this has native support in macOS High Sierra and needs no kexts / drivers. It works out of the box!"   My setup is very similar to yours:  mobo: asus z370 F gaming  i7 8700k  gtx 1080ti    please advise me further!    much appreciated 
    • I had it working without any kext or inject when I installed sierra but my Geekbench scores where low and had some video playback issues. I'll try giving it a shot again without any frame buffers or kext and see if I can get it to work.    Also do you know if my MB has CSM? I don't see it on the MB website. 
    • @AceMcLoven R9 270X and R9 280X don't need anything to work in a Hackintosh, I have a MSI R9 270X and it works 100% OOB without any injection or selecting the framebuffer if I set InjectATI=True or select a framebuffer Futomaki it will go to black screen. Don't inject anything in the Graphics section. You don't even need the RadeonDeInit either, just make sure that the CSM is disabled in BIOS/UEFI. I've been using HDMI and DP ports and both work ok.
    • risolto!!! Fatto un'installazione pulita e poi ho seguito questo post  ...l'installazione deve essere pulita..senza kexts aggiuntivi di precedenti prove
