Troubles installing 10.8.2

Recommended Posts

Currently I am running Windows 7 on my main drive and was going to install Mountain Lion on a seperate drive to dual boot. I setup the partition on the second drive in windows and formatted it to fat32 so in Disk Utility I can reformat it to Journaled when in OSX installation. The problem is I have not been able to get to the installation. I boot into my usb and everytime it blinks black and restarts after reading through kexts. I have tried every terminal input I can find on here (-v, -f, -s , -x, npci=0x2000, graphicsenabler=no -f, pcirootuid=0 etc) I finally found the command that will let it wait before restarting and I got some pictures, I warn you they are awful as I am using a 20$ at&T go phone at the moment.

 

 

Specs:

 

Intel Xeon E3110 (Overclocked at 3.6 at the moment)

DFI Inc. LP DK P35 (Socket 775) Motherboard

ATI Radeon HD 4800 GFX Card

 

 

The first one which I imagine has the error files in question look to be cutoff, I am going to try and get a better picture or at least write them own and post again where they are cutoff. Any help would be great. Thanks guys!

 

Cutoffs from the first image reads:

I attempted the install via un1beast (1 is an i of course. if this is a banned subject please pm me and I will happily remove it) as well. Got my stick prepared and went at it. Same situation happened, although this time the only way I could even see the kexts loading was through the "-s" command.

 

I think I might have a hardware issue although it seems my hardware checks out on the compatible lists.

[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]? A program that will extract your Install Mountain Lion and put it on your usb for you, as well as install chameleon bootloader.. I thought it might work after my first attempt did not.

I'm curious how your CPU will fare with ML. Recently i plugged my rescue installation of ML i did on an USB thumb drive (16 GB) in an old Core2Duo and it ran without any hassles. Since your CPU, i think, is a rebranded C2D E8400, it should do well.

I am inclined to agree with you, I have read about people getting it working on all parts of my setup (not as one system of course) So I am thinking it should work fairly well. I guess getting it installed will be the tricky part.

 

Is the loading of kexts then restart a common issue? I put osx on a my dell mini 9 back in the day and I don't remember it being this difficult.

It is a common issue indeed, with unsupported CPUs. That should not be the case here. Did you get any success?

 

You can try the following: try to use Carbon Copy Cloner, a free app, to make a copy of your dell mini successful hackintosh in the HD that you intend to use as the main HD with the Xeon PC. Don't forget also to install the latest chamelon on it. Should boot just fine.

 

Good luck.

    • It most certainly does!    Made an image of my previous esxi 6.5, updated to 6.7.0 and everything works. Be careful though: read the release notes, certain CPUs  have been deprecated and said CPUs will result in the purple screen of death!   Sterling work dear chap! You are greatly appreciated.
    • I did try that just now but it seems like the card is still active as it still shows up in system report! I have managed to get the battery meter working but as i said it works only when i unplug/plug the ac adapter. I have to do this once then the meter functions properly.
    • My BIOS has an option of enabling/disabling CSM! I think enabling CSM made my boot menu go non native resolution too!
    • I have a gigabyte Aorus ultra. I don't think so, everything should be uefi. Anything I should look at in particular? 
    • All right now : I have taked delivery of my new TBEX3  this afternoon : plugged and all is fine at startup, screen plugged on USB_C   My Settings recap :   1/ Bios recommended parameters for Thunderbolt + Pci devices set as Legacy 2/ I added arbitrary lines on my config.plist ( Thanks @Matthew82.) <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>THUNDERBOLT 1577</string> <key>CustomProperties</key> <array> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>model</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Thunderbolt EX3</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>AAPL,slot-name</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Slot-4</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>name</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Thunderbolt 3 Controller</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>device_type</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Thunderbolt 3</string> </dict> <dict> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Key</key> <string>IOName</string> <key>Value</key> <string>Thunderbolt</string> </dict> </array> <key>PciAddr</key> <string>03:00.00</string>   3/ my SSDT  SSDT-TB3U2.aml.zip
