OSX and Windows Hibernation

Recommended Posts

I'm posting this here because OSX Lion 10.7.3 along with Windows 7 Ultimate and XP is what I have now, but I believe this is common problem and should exist with newer versions of OSX and windows too.

So my setup is as follows:

HDD 1 TB 3 partitions NTFSXP/HFS-Journaled-OSXLion/NTFS-7

Grub2dos is installed and I can select any partition upon booting my PC.

OSX is booted from grub via "tboot" which loads chameleon on the hfs partition with all the bootflags and DSDT patches needed to optimize the OSX




All works well unless I hibernate windows 7!!


In this situation OSX either fails to load directly after hibernating windows 7, most of the time it loads the second time (after the panic that is), but sometimes it won't load at all (waiting for root device)




I know that during hibernation it's unsafe to touch the hibernation partition, but what I'm looking for is a way to forcefully mount the hibernating windows partition as read only.

This way I can work under Lion without disturbing the hibernating Win7 and resume hibernation in a fast way whenever needed.


what tools/boot scripts or helpful workaround can help me achieve this, expert help needed.

After further testing, custom DSDT was not the culprit

However updating Chameleon to latest revision 2.2 - 2344 seems to fix the issue

    • Cool! Do you have a link? Googled and didn't see anything yet.   Never mind... you're quick! I just noticed you updated it on the 1st page THANKS!!!!!!
    • I resolved the problem. Just set this coding in your config.plist:   "
                      <string>USB 10.13.4+ by PMHeart</string>
              </array>     "

    • I guess having pre{max-height: 500px;overflow: auto;} in CSS was too much for IPS Devs' tast.  Until an admin has hands on this, you still can use stylish plugin to accomplish it.     In fact, it is pretty easy than it appears - Just apply a simple click on the codebox (it will highlight it), then 'delete' key.
    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
