Using a VMWare OSX install and following this guide (http://thetecherra.com/2012/02/17/tutorial-run-os-x-mountain-lion-10-8-on-a-pc-hackintoshosx86-from-start-to-finish/) I am trying to install Mountain Lion on my Toshiba u405 s2830.


Initially I was hanging while it seemed to be recognizing my iLink Firewire, so I just removed the /System/Library/Extensions/IOFireWireFamily.kext file.


Now I'm still getting a similar error: While booting from the install USB I hang with a "Host Controller System Error" (see my crappy pictures). post-1019840-0-81910200-1339003020_thumb.jpgpost-1019840-0-80876300-1339003039_thumb.jpg


It looks like it is tripping up on USB stuff now with lines stating "Apple USB UHC", "Handle Interrupt", and without any USB fixes on Chameleon "usb hub fatal error".


System Specs:

Toshiba Satellite u405-s2830 (http://www.cnet.com/laptops/toshiba-satellite-u405-s2830/4507-3121_7-32906090.html)

Intel Core 2 Duo T8100

800mhz fsb

Mobile Intel GM965 Express




Legacy USB enabled (cannot boot to USB with disabled)


Chameleon Settings:

v2.1svn r1979

SMBIOS: MacBook 4,1 (Core 2 Duo T8100)

archi386 enabled

I've tried running various USB/other fix settings including combinations of everything in USBBusFix.


I've seen 10.7 installed on other satellite models near mine online, but I know I can't expect great compatibility.


Any idea what I should try next to get 10.8 installed? I know I will have ethernet issues once I do get it up and running but I can't get the installer going yet. My hope is to do the actual installation to another, larger USB drive I have (to avoid having to mess with my GRUB setup for linux, Win).


Let me know if you need more info. Thanks in advance!

U try adding boot flag USBBusFix=Yes ?


nevermind, try on a newer laptop, seriously :( No point in trying to run ML with GMA 9xx. I have real mackbook with GMA950 and core2duo that will never run ML in any useful form. 64bit only OS and there will never be 64bit support for GMA9xx

      I'm trying to install 10.13.3 for iMacPro on SATA SSD. The motherboard is ASUS WS X299 PRO.
      The installation process hangs when 'less than a minute left' is displayed on screen. The last messages I can see in the installation log are at the picture attached to this post.
      If I then reset the system and boot what was installed I can continue the installation. Unfortunately, it stucks at the end again. Next, if I try to boot what was finally installed I can even get to working system. But I cannot install the updates because of the same hanging at the end!
      This is not relevant to:
      APFS or HFS+ - both hang Locked or unlocked MSR 0xE2 - both cases hang Special build for iMacPro or ordinary build - installing both builds hang Flash drive prepared using 'createinstallmedia', BDU or using RecoveryHD - all hang USB drive failure or disconnected USB port. I rule that out by installing from recovery partition with all USB drives disconnected. It is not a SATA disk issue. Tried to install using another SSD drive. Hangs. Also tried to install on HDD - hangs. Changing to iMac18,3 did not help as well. Lastest dev beta (common) did not fix it - hangs. Please help me to figure out what's wrong.
      My config file is attached.
      Moving a bit further... The first stage of installation goes fine in Safe Mode (-x). Installation log indicates the same log message and after that it reboots immediately. Seems to be a normal behaviour. However, the second stage ("install macOS from <volume>") still hangs. Running the second stage in Safe Mode panics with "process 1 exec of /sbin/launchd failed".
      SOLVED. It turned out that "hardware" NVRAM doesn't work with AptioMemoryFix on this motherboard. But works in Safe Mode. This is weird but it's true. Fallback to OsxAptioFixDrv2 + EmuVariableUEFIDrv solved my problem. Installation now finished just fine.

      Questo è il thread in italiano dedicato alla mia app TINU, l'app open source che ho creato per creare chiavetta di installazione di mac utilizzando il metodo "createinstallmedia".
      Il nome è l'acronimo di TINU Is Not U (Per le regole del forum devo censurare, ma la U si riferisce ad un programma che piu o meno svolge lo stesso scopo che che per buoni motivi è bandito su questo sito, il punto del metterlo nel nome sta nel sottolineare che la mia app è totalmente divera)
      L'app è pensata per essere molto semplice ed immediata da usare (con un interfaccia grafica progettata con criteri e metodi usati in ambito professionale per lo sviluppo di applicazioni utente) e per essere molto solida e stabile che funziona sempre al primo colpo (a differenza di altri tool che conosciamo ...)
      A livello funzionale quest'app non è altro che un interfaccia grafica per il metodo da terminale "createinstallmedia" che viene sfrutatto dalla stessa per creare la chiavetta, quindi le chiavette create con TINU sono chiavette al 100% vanilla come se le aveste create dal terminale, a questo l' applicazione aggiunge funzioni utili come la formattazione automatica della chiavetta USB che si sceglie di usare in formato Mac OS Extended (journaled) (detto anche HFS+) con mapatura di partizione GUID.
      Tra gli altri vantaggi troviamo il fatto che permette di creare chiavette utilizzando qualunque applicazione di mac che contiene l'eseguibile "createinstallmedia" inclusi installer delle beta ed installer appena rilasciati, e non richiede di fare cose particolari prima come formattare la chiavetta e cambiare lingua al sistema e puo utilizzare applicazioni di mac che si trovano in vaie directory nel sistema e non solo quelle sche stanno in applicazioni ed hanno un nome specifico (nota che l'applicazione di installazione di mac deve essere quella interacche pesa diversi gb e non quella da pochi mb che l'app store puo scaricare alcune volte e che contiene tutto quello che serve per permettere a createinstallmedia di funzionare)
      l'applicazione è completamente aprta ed open source e trovate qui alcuni link utili:
       - Scarica l'app: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases
       - Repo github di TINU: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU
       - FAQs (in inglese): https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/wiki/FAQs
       - Thread in inglese su tinu (English thread about TINU): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/326959-tinu-the-macos-install-media-creation-tool-mac-app/
      Qui invece ci sono un paio di guide (Anche se l'app è molto facile da usare):
       - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per un hackintosh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZOZOUt2ErM
       - Piccola guida su come usare TINU per creare cheiavette per Mac "originali": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZOZOUt2ErM
      Attualemente è in fase di sviluppo una nuova versione di questa app che verrà rilasciata a breve e che include diverse novità e migliorie importanti.
      Per chi se lo chiede, il supporto a clover in TINU è pianificato per una versione futura, anche se dei protipi a livvello codice per renderlo possibile, sono gia stati sperimentati con successo.
      Spero che anche voi del forum italiano aprezzerete questa app come gli utenti del forum inglese, per idee e suggerimenti, siete liberi di esprimervi :-)

      I used BCM943602CS for my Hackintosh. On High Sierra, the WiFi works well, however, the bluetooth doesn't work. I cannot find the bluetooth icon on the system preference pane. From the system report, I can see that the Device can be recognized as 'Bluetooth USB Host Controller'. From IORegistryExplorer, I've found that the device for it has a UsbConnector value of 0x0, which is weird. And the IOResources part says the device is not built-in. I don't know whether it has something to do with my MSI B350 Tomahawk (an AMD platform) motherboard. If someone has some advice, please help me out.
