Pandora's Box (Beta 2 Testing)

Recommended Posts

 Okay I get this at the end of the creation process:

 

 

  Adopting on-disk ownership on  ...

vsdbutil: Couldn't get volume information for '': No such file or directory

vsdbutil: no valid volume UUID found on '': No such file or directory

Ok, find how to solve, awaiting for new Update..

 

Can you try to copy your "Install app" into /Application, and putting Pandora in Desktop?

@ Minihack until Micky fixed the problems you can do like my post # 42

puts Install OS X Lion Mountain others floder in the application folder

Pandora will ask you where it is

 

you said it and no problem after

 

@micicky


Once the USB drive, apart from the option dart = 0 does not work, everything else moves perfectly

 

good job boys  :thumbsup_anim:  :thumbsup_anim:

However OSInstall.mpkg go in:
 
/System/Installation/Packages/   (not valid for Installer made with Pandora)
 
and OSInstall go in:
 

/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/

Hi Micky,

 

about this info in Pandora's AppleRTC patch

Solution to circumvent it, is editing the dsdt with a special patch.

 

What DSDT patch is this?

 

Thanks.

Well I'm talking about putting some IRQ(es) in HPET, and move other somewhere else ...

When I had my old laptop DV7 6190sl, put modded bios  even if  was RSA signed, and for each CMOS reset had some semi-brick. ..after always solved as mentioned above

 

I'm total in wrong? :lol:

If it is wrong, change description..

the installer is not working for me on MacBook Pro retina, does't start, can't create usb stick 

 

english system, i've tried a dozen times with different config still the same :

i 'm asked my password a second time on a black window. the black window disappear and nothing else happens.

 

(i build usb stick with pandora 1 on this machine.)

 

 

 

i try to update the update says it fails.

I really do not know, that's why I asked...

 

For what I know, the RTC patch in DSDT (set length to 2) avoids CMOS reset after every reboot/shutdown on some machines, but it's not related to CMOS reset after sleep/wake, which happens even with a patched DSDT and can be fixed by AppleRTC patch (jump checksum updates).

 

I think there's a little misunderstanding about this, but I'm not really sure. I never heard about the IRQs patch (HPET, RTC, PIC, TMR) being related to CMOS resets.

I read somewhere (though in my experience I have to take to be true):
 
it seems that rtc alarms are ignored after the RTC CMOS is suspended, but before the operating system is fully in sleep .... since  HPET are not disabled and still manages interrupts, a wake event has never
registered by the RTC.
And in some cases seems to work, really, perhaps an integration of two things give better result, maybe not, not know with certainty.
 
Maybe some do not need the RTC patch, but to reallocate their IRQ.

At least in my case (Asus P5E), even with RTC length set to 2 (needed to avoid CMOS reset after reboot/shutdown) and IRQs relocated (needed to avoid sound stuttering with SpeedStep enabled), I have CMOS reset after sleep/wake. The only way to fix it is patching AppleRTC.

Pandora installer did its stuff no errors were reported, I changed kernel on created InstallerUSB, rebooted and system wont boot from USB.

 

I know how to set BIOS to do this, did it many times but this time it wont boot! ModUsb Snowlion usb intallation is booting..

 

Am I missing something?

 

edit: Pandora is in apps folder, I`m trying to make Lion install from retail dmg, AMD system


edit2: updating pandora, will try again

Frankly I'm not an expert on AMD systems, but if Pandora did not give errors, maybe it's all right....
My GOD, if installer does not want to boot, it can be many things, but you have to be more precise:
 
- What settings have the Pandora preferences panel?
- OSx version used?
- you've chosen option which includes NullCPUPowerManagement.kext? (required for AMD CPU)
- Which kernel did you use, and where did you get it?
- Mavericks,  does not have a patched AMD kernel, yet (for which there is no AMD support).
 
- What do you mean wont boot from USB.? What mistakes are there in the boot? you are able to see the boot screen?

What do you mean with above? Do you have an Administrative account on your MBP Retina??

However, you have full reason: RTC is a problem that can be solved in a certain way, other things, although they may be indirectly related, are "other problems". Will remove the  "about dsdt patch", from the description.

It stucks just before boot loader should start, no on-screen massages.. Like there is no boot loader..

SnowLion 10.6.7 VM = Virtual Machine?

If so, soon found the problem.
