Trying to install from pandora

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, is there a better tutorial on installing OSX with pandora than is available here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289758-pandoras-box-beta-2-testing/?  The aforementioned guide is worse than useless and I'm trying to install 10.8.5 onto my newly built pc rig.  I'm not sure which options to use when going through the install process - like when it asks for the "model" of my computer - or precisely what to do with the USB stick after.  I think I got it to install )SX on my computer, but when I try to boot again from the USB I get a panoply of errors, and when I try and boot from the HDD I get the boot0 load error.


Any advice on installing this thing step by step or should I use another method?  The Pandora's Box was supposed to be self explanatory and easy but it's leaving behind a bunch of unanswered questions.

Pandora box is a app to make a USBInstaller and install the system to your HD, then you can use the app with the option post install to install kexts, the boot loader,  and others options to your system.

I'm still getting the boot0 error, after following several guides and trying to install with both myHack and Pandora's Box.  Is there something else that can cause the error?
