Hello ! 

 

Im trying to install OS X Mountain Lion 10.8, im using the last MyHack with and InstallESD.iso i downloaded this iso from the piratebay long ago, i succesfully got to install 10.8 on other Desktop PC's using MyHack and this ISO. but now im trying to install it on my HP ENVY m6-1225dx Notebook PC, but i always get stuck on Still Waiting For Root Device also i get error encountered while starting up the computer pausing 5 seconds

 

Errors:

 

1. error encountered while starting up the computer pausing 5 seconds

2. still waiting for root device

 

BIOS:

 

My BIOS it's locked...there's nothing that i can do, just enable the legacy option to be able to boot from my USB drive which is the one that i've always have used for my installs.

 

 

Specs:

 

Intel Core i5-3230M// 2.60GHz

8GB Ram 

Intel HD4000

750GB 5400RPM 

 

More Specs here:

Kernel Flags i've have used: 

 

cpus=1 //to avoid the KP

UseKernelCache=No // to see if i was able to avoid Still Waiting for root device, no luck

USBBusFix=Yes //  No luck.

another one that goes by ForceEHT(something like that) /// no luck either

 

Help :S !

      Ciao ragazzi! Grazie a questo forum con gente fantastica, sono riuscito a installare OS X e in seguito Win 10 su Clover SULLO STESSO HARD DISK
      Ho un problema, di solito utilizzo Kali Linux, la famosa versione di linux in usb in live
      Ora avrei la necessita di dedicargli 15gb di partizione del mio Hard Disk PER INSTALLARLA, e l'ho fatto effettivamente creando una partizione VUOTA tramite utility disco di Sierra.
      Il problema sorge quando io vado a riavviare il pc e quindi ritrovandomi nella schermata di clover, e vedo sempre il solito OSX e il recovery Osx e al posto di Windows 10, mi trovo la partizione di 15gb che avevo creato per windows(con l'icona di windows)
      Siccome ho paura di perdere i dati importanti che avevo su windows, non ho continuato installando Kali, ma mi sono fermato e ho eliminato la partizione sempre da utility di Sierra e come per magia, riavvio e Win10 è di nuovo lì dove dovrebbe stare
      Appena creo la partizione vuota, clover me la sostituisce
      Che devo fare raga?
      Io voglio OSX,Win10 (Che già ho) e Kali(Solo 15gb) sullo stesso hard disk
      Senza perdere dati di Win o Mac
      Gengik ho visto in precedenti discussioni tue, di andare in GUI da clover config . e togliere Windows da quelli nascosti e l'ho fatto, ma il risultato non cambia.
      Grazie per la lettura

      I have a HP 840 G3 that was donated to me to Hackintosh, currently running High Sierra 10.13.6. This should work for the 840 G2 and you may even have more luck with the 840 G1 with the WiFi that PCIe.
       
      My method to install OS X on the SSD from a working real Mac via SSD to USB converter. I then install Clover and add my kexts ad set the config.plist
       
      Not working
      SD Card reader
       
      Working
      Video - screen looks better in OS X then it does in Windows 10
      VGA port
      WiFi and BlueTooth working OOO using the below hack
      Battery status with Rehabman's DSDT patch
      Brightness controls
      Sounds - using VoodooHDA
      Microphone - cannot turn it off or mute
      Keyboard backlight - controlled though BIOS anyways
      touchpad - using VoodooPS2Controller
      USB3 - this laptop has two on board only and I haven't test them using the docking station
      USB3.1 C
      Ethernet - using IntelMausiEthernet
      Sleep - kind of, closing the lid doesn't go to sleep but goes to sleep over time.
       
      Not tested
      This laptop does not have a Webcam - enterprise model.
      Display port
      Finger Print device
       
      For me what keeps this from being a day to day usable laptop (Mac Book) is the WiFi + Bluetooth, not having battery percentage could be an issue later though.
       
      Clover_folder for those that want to play along.

      I've got High Sierra 10.13.6 running pretty well on a i5-6400, h370n gigabyte itx mobo, w/ sapphire 580 radeon GPU.
       
      This is my second clean install trying to see if I can get my audio ports on my box working. First time around I had sleep/wake perfect but now it's mostly restarting on sleep and not waking up if it doesn't restart. I'm also getting 2-3 second freezes now every few minutes, which I wasn't before. Not sure what happened there. And I still don't have access to my audio jacks on the front or rear of my box. I can pipe it through HDMI or DisplayPort, and I also have a USB audio jack dongle, but would definitely like to use the native ports.  I've tried all id-layouts for my codec.
       
      I also replaced the wifi card on the mobo with a BCM94352Z DW1560 but I'm not getting Wifi or BT through it. Possible I didn't seat it correctly when replacing it, but I'm trying everything else before I tear the mobo apart again.
       
      Any ideas on how to get this operating as smoothly as possible would be much appreciated
