With this app would people still have to access to OSX to convert a Mountain Lion image to USB?

 

Thanks. NSCXP2005

BdU was created for new hackintosh users only to simplify the installation of a latest revolutionary bootloader Clover to the flash drive.

More information can be found in the appropriate forum topic.

Hi,

 

I tried BDU but can't see anything on my screen after the initial countdown. My monitor complains about the resolution; says it must be something like "1900x600". How can I fix this? Thanks.

Hi, supaJ.

Configure the Clover boot loader is discussed in the appropriate forum - Clover General discussion.

 

Update: BDUtility.exe v2.0.2013rev.120b

  • Fixed the application error when restoring a partition, if you select the entire disk.
  • Allowed recovery partition on a non-USB drive (MBR disks only).
  • Miinor improvements.

In the root directory of the usb disk are numbered boot files.

When you boot the usb and a line flashes for 3 seconds in the upper left of the screen press...

  • boot (Clover 64bit-default) - no key
  • boot2 (Chameleon) - 2
  • boot3 (Clover 32bit - in the last Clover revisions - not included) - 3
  • boot6 (Clover 64bit - the same default) - 6

  • boot (Clover 64bit-default) - no key
  • boot1 (Chameleon) - 1
  • boot2 (Chimera) - 2
  • boot3 (Clover 32bit - in the last Clover revisions - not included) - 3
  • boot6 (Clover 64bit - the same default) - 6
  • boot8 (Grub) - 8
  • boot9 (XPC) - 9

Trying to use this utility under Windows 8 64-bit. Keep getting an error cant open disk. Is this not compatible with Win 8?

Its compatible

Did so, always comes up saying error accessing said disk. Even tried to clean diskutil and re-write a new fat32 FS. Either something is accessing it in the background (which I cant find) and the OS isnt releasing it or there is some compatibility issue. o.O

Very strange. Some program does not relieve the drive for exclusive access. Maybe this is the virus protection program.

 

r156b:

  • Install/UnInstall BootCamp v4.0.2.0 HFS+ ReadOnly Driver
  • Extract HFS(HFS+) partition from DMG-files
  • Miinor improvements.

      Hi All
       
      I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation:
      - MSI B350 PC Mate
      - Ryzen 5 - 2600
      - Radeon Pro 580 GPU
      - 4 x 8GB DDR4
      (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) 
       
      Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes...
      ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2"
      Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX.
       
      So can someone help...

      I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen.
      In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1
      In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67
      In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well)
       
      But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help...
      Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...

      I get a lot of questions about HOW TO BACKUP A HACKINTOSH. So I decided to create Complete Guide with 5 methods described in detail, how to easily make bootable clones of Hackintosh system disks, or backup your data. Full step by step tutorial is here:

      Reviving my old INSTAHackintosh, it's been a while....
      Purpose:
      Create User Custom Install iso/dmg with bootloader, apps and user-settings.
      Create Live iso/usb.
      What Versions:
      Tiger-Current ( bit ambitious but hey I like a challenge ).
      Why:
      Because I can!
      I'm not too impressed with the way Apple and others handle their installs.
      Support for 4 Bootloaders:
      Chameleon
      Clover Legacy
      Refit Ozmosis
      Clover UEFI
      Keep you informed as I progress from scratch.
      This could take a while, it's NOT my priority.
      Will probably release in Os versions, starting at Mojave and working backwards.

      Buenas!
      recuerdo que cuando empece a instalar el clover para hacer mi hackintosh el boot de clover tenia una cuenta atrás en la que pasado “no se si eran 5 o 6 segundos”se iniciaba la opcion de arranque de high sierra del disco duro que es la que se marca por defecto, seguramente habré instalado un theme que me lo deja fijo y no recuerdo como volver activarlo.
      gracias de antemano!!!
