"Windows is hibernated" error at boot

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm trying to make a trial boot on my hard disk.

I initialized the disk with Disk utility, make my partitions, installed Windows 8.1 and installed Mountain Lion 10.8.5 with native OS image.

I made everything I needed working (QE/CI too), but now when I try to boot I get this annoying error:

 

ntfs_system_inodes_get(): Windows is hibernated. Will not be able to remount read-write. Run chkdsk.

 

Altought I'm still able to boot with -x option.

I already unchecked Fast startup from Windows 8.1, I'm using chameleon 2.1 (still from USB, not installed yet) and my PC is an Acer Aspire 5738G with an ATI 4570M.

Could it be caused by some kext? I actually have no idea on what to do and I was not able to find anything useful...

 

Edit: if it could be any util, I'm following this guide to trial boot:http://racerrehabman.wordpress.com/2012/07/06/guide-to-installing-windows-7-windows-8-mac-os-x-lion-and-ubuntu-multi-boot/

Were you at one time able to boot without -x?  In other words, were you able to boot fine but suddenly a problem developed where you now can only boot with -x or have you never been able to boot without -x?

 

Boot -v (not -x) and when the text hangs, take a picture of the monitor and post it here.

Thanks in advance for your help :)

EDIT: By the way, I was able to boot ML with everything working before my decision to make a trial boot. When I wiped out the HD and installed Win8.1, then I reainstalled ML in the same way but I have these problems...

I think it is a video problem.  I believe you are booted but the video isn't working so you can't see the Desktop.  Repeat the steps for fixing video QE/CI.

I've already done all the stuffs I did last time on first boot.

I simply installed all the kexts and setted the smbios from chameleon as a 2010 MacBook Pro.

 

I'm doing it again right now, I'll let you know.

BTW if audio kext was the problem, do you know if I can use any else?

I reinstalled audio and video kexts.

Now it stops here

But since you told me that the system could be already booted, I noticed that it makes a little sound like when it actually boots.

Could depend on chameleon configuration?

 

EDIT: It boots with graphics enabler = no , it's definitely a video problem.

You were right, it was a video problem. I didn't realized that the version of Chameleon I used the first time was a patched version compiled by some Peregrine. Now I installed it again and my ATI 4570M was recognized without any problem.

Anyway, I'm still not able to do some things (like use Launchpad or open a new Safari tab!) without getting everything stuck. Is there any quick suggestion you can give me or should I open a new topic?
