I tried the Beta2 version on ML 10.8.4, but it didn't create a bootable USB installer for my EVGA X58 132-BL-E758-A1 mobo (GTX 285 grapgics card)

I also tried Digital_Dreamer's Hackinstaller script without any success.

What finally worked was Conti's MyHack installer. I did need several boot flags and a few simple [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] touchups, but nothing too heavy.

 

All of the aforementioned tools are great aids for us non-hackers who are here because we need a working computer for our profession. I don't understand people who oppose such great efforts and encourage endless hours on the Terminal, one patch after another.

Whoever wants to make hacking their hobby, there's nothing stopping them. I prefer getting the job done as quickly as possible, so that I can use the Hackintosh to create music and graphics. To each their own!

Fantastic work! Although my PC is Haswell was possible to pass reboot error (I think created by mach_kernel + FakeSMC) using other tools as MyHack or ### trying to install ML or Mavericks.

I believe that in a short time will be possible installation on Haswell ones using your great tool without suffering. Sorry for my english and many thanks!

Finally i was able to install Mavericks. Only it took a long time to before i could choose my main language.

Only can't get OSX started or it takes more then 10 minutes.... I switch it off.

I own 5 Macs and have been using them exclusively since '91. Doing creative work on Macs, rather than noodling around "under the hood" has always been my focus until Apple dropped support for my Mac Pro when it was (and is) still a superb machine. Many hours of learning later I got 10.9 installed on it thanks to SFOTT and Tiamo - but this only served to make clear how cynical Apple had been to drop support for those 64bit machines with 32bit EFI. The idea that it's somehow wrong or lazy to want "it just works" functionality from a Hackintosh kinda goes against why many people want a Hackintosh in the first place - because they value OSX enormously but dislike the intrusiveness of the "walled garden" especially with regard to hardware upgradeability. cheers.

      Recently transition from ###### to Clover.
      All work great on my raging Dell530 (with Quad-core Xeon E5450).
      I can triple boot Snow-Leopard, Mavericks or Yosemite.
      Really love the way clover does dynamic patching.
       
      Decided to add a second drive that had the original Dell-installed Windows Vista.
       
      Question for the community: Is it even possible to boot legacy Vista on the second drive using Clover ?
       
      I ask because I cannot. I have searched and all topics discuss UEFI boot which is OK for Win7 and up.
      Vista does not support UEFI boot.
      And this good old Dell only has BIOS.
       
      Clover GUI lists two new partitions after the Recovery HD partition.
      The last one is called "Boot Windows from OS" (screenshot0):
       
      When I hit enter, the screen clears to black and Clover windows badge is displayed but does not boot.
      If I hit enter again, I see the Clover GUI again.
       
      It just will not boot Vista.
       
      Disk details are as shown:
      OSX-YS-Pro:~ MacNB$ diskutil list /dev/disk0    #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER    0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *1.0 TB     disk0    1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1    2:                  Apple_HFS OSX-SL                  803.3 GB   disk0s2    3:                  Apple_HFS OSX-MV                  153.3 GB   disk0s3    4:                  Apple_HFS OSX-YS                  42.4 GB    disk0s4    5:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s5 /dev/disk1    #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER    0:     FDisk_partition_scheme                        *750.2 GB   disk1    1:                 DOS_FAT_16 DellUtility             74.0 MB    disk1s1    2:               Windows_NTFS RECOVERY                10.7 GB    disk1s2    3:               Windows_NTFS OS                      739.3 GB   disk1s3 OSX-YS-Pro:~ MacNB$ OSX-YS-Pro:~ MacNB$ sudo fdisk440 /dev/disk1 Password: Disk: /dev/disk1 geometry: 91201/255/63 [1465149168 sectors] Signature: 0xAA55          Starting       Ending  #: id  cyl  hd sec -  cyl  hd sec [     start -       size] ------------------------------------------------------------------------  1: 06    0   1   1 -    8 254  63 [        63 -     144522] DOS > 32MB    2: 07    9  13   5 - 1023 254  63 [    145408 -   20971520] NTFS         *3: 07 1023 254  63 - 1023 254  63 [  21116928 - 1444028416] NTFS          4: 00    0   0   0 -    0   0   0 [         0 -          0] unused       OSX-YS-Pro:~ MacNB$    FDISK shows that the 3rd partition is ACTIVE on the Vista drive (disk1).
       
      Clover is installed on EFI partition on the OS X drive (disk0).
       
      Config.plist attached.
      debug.log attached.
       
      If I boot from a Chameleon USB-stick, I can select the OS partition and it boots, but Clover does not.
       
      Edit: I can boot Vista via the BIOS by hitting F12 and selecting the vista hdd.

      Hi there.
      I'm new to this site but not totally new to hack. I've had a hack since 10.4 and the latest version I ran was 10.9, not totally fixed but it worked to what I needed. Now I want to make the machine run as good as it can. I can see there has been a lot of changes/upgrades/new solutions since I installed my hack and I have a hard time to catch up.  
      I've been able to boot and install macOSX and now I need the POST installation.
      I tried to install the clover EFI boot loader with these settings:
       
      and found the DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml from HERE
      found the apfs.efi
      and placed it in EFI -> EFI -> CLOVER -> driver64
      and these kext in here:

       
       
      But when I boot it up this is the first bootscreen I have. No partions, no mouse control, no nothing.

      if I exit clover this screen appear.

      and now everything works. 
       
      What is wrong?
      Cheers
      Soren
