So I've succesfully installed Mountain Lion (except for some problems regarding audio and iCloud). But it takes more than a minute to boot. It hangs at Waiting for DSMOS for about 30 seconds :S

 

What can I do to fix this problem? Thank you very much!

He asked you what hardware your using so that maybe someone can help you. Having it in your sig would be best. Anyhow until then, verify permissions are correct for / should be root:wheel and newer version of fakesmc is being used

I have even slower boot time it takes forever before it boots up. Nothing happens before I see the leds for my drives light up and I get a feeling its not the HDDs but the DVDs.

 

I have the Asus P6 T SE and i7 930 and SSD drives. In Lion it boots in seconds, its very fast.

 

Im using the latest Chameleon.

I have almost the exact same problem (+70 sec time to boot)

 

 

 

 

 

what I did:

  • I changed FakeSMC to 2.5, remove all plugins, move all kext extra to S\L\E
  • Start with Use Kernel Cache
  • Check DSDT
  • Add NullCPUPowerManagement

 

on board:

  • ICH10 2 HDD,
  • JMicron DVD + external HDD eSATA,

As of now. I haven't solved the problem... I don't know what should I do. The other problem I have is that iCloud is not working with my Wi-Fi dongle.

This is for your problem:Generate UUID FIX waiting DSMOS:http://www.famkruithof.net/uuid/uuidgen

 

Add this string to org.chameleon.boot.plist

<key>SystemId</key>

<string>**</string>

Replace the ** with the key generated from this site

Marucins-your problem not even similar, you have KP, need to roll back both IOPCIFamily and ApplaeACPIPlatform from SL, and install your kexts to s/l/e not e/e

 

ajentj-icloud needs ethernet recognized as en0 and built-in, nothing to do with wifi
