Manually created installer: hfs_lock locking against myself!

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I can´t get in my Lion 10.7.4 anymore and I don´t have a working installer atm, so I decided to create one using linux!


I created a hfs+ partition and restored BaseSystem/InstallESD files, copied FakeSMC NullPower etc. from a unpacked myhack and installed latest chameleon 2107(?)on it. I also replaced the kernel with the one, which always worked on the installer for me (R:A:W:86)!


With a myhack-created installer I simply copied the kernel and started with "-v -f busratio=155 npci=0x2000".

If I do the same now, it boots up fine until a KP comes up which says: hfs_lock locking against myself!


It seems to be something with the installer, as I get the same error on another pc!



Any idea?

I got a working Lion again but furthermore have the issues with my created stick.


It seems it has something todo with the partitiontable itself. When I plug the created stick into the lion pc and click on verify disk I get kernel panic ( its a atom patched kernel).


The interesting thing is, that its the same panic i get when booting with the stick!


I´ll try now to format the stick with osx and do the other operations under linux! Just for my own interest :P
