Installing Niresh OS - Missing Driver for a Platform

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I was recently trying to install the latest version of Niresh OS (which is derived distro of Mountain Lion). The problem that I get on booting is this error at verbose mode:

panic (cpu 0 caller 'something was here') : "Unable to find driver for this platform :
\ "ACPI \ ". \ n"@/ SourceCache / xnu / xnu - 1504.15.3 / iokit / kernel / IOPlatformExpert.cpp : 1546
Debugger called : <panic>

The machine that I was trying to install this distro is HP Envy 4 - Ultrabook 1046 TX. Here are more details of the hardware:




Perhaps it is because Mac requires to search for an optical drive and my laptop simply does not have an optical drive.


Is there any way I can install Niresh OS on my computer or any other possible way in which I could install a Hackintosh into my laptop.


Any help is appriciated.

Have a look at Pandora here in Downloads.

If you have time you can read this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners/


Distros are  not very good supported here. Forget it to try to install them. You always get a lot of garbage in your install.


Have fun.
