Chameleon Reboot Loop

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I recently installed OS X 10.9 to my computer, and configured it to dual boot Windows 7 using EasyBCD. Whenever I try to boot OS X from the boot menu, Chameleon doesn't boot the installation. However, a USB with Chameleon will boot the installation just fine.

 

Trying to boot with -v will allow me to see it loading the HFS+ files, but then it reboots, without any sign of verbose text. Booting without verbose gives a half-second flicker of the Apple boot screen before restarting.

 

The computer build is:

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H

Processor: Intel Haswell i7 3.5Ghz Quad Core

Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX660 S2 2GB GDDR5

I tried patching the kernel but it didn't work.

 

I used the Haswell patch in the installer you linked and also Frank Nitty's here, but Chameleon still reboots on startup.

 

I don't really know which version of Chameleon it is either. EasyBCD seems to boot to one it installs on my Windows drive in the NST folder.

I managed to get an error of verbose.

 

Just before reboot chameleon reads:

 

efi_inject_get_devprop_string NULL trying stringdata

 

Any ideas?

      Hi,
       
      I have High Sierra 10.13.6 installed on a Gigabyte h360m d3h, an i3 8100 processor and a GeForce GTX 760.
       
      I'm having some issues with sleep, shutdown and reboot not working correctly, this is what happens:
      Sleep: the machine restarts
      Shutdown: the OS appears to not be running but the machine is left on
      Restart: the same as shutdown
       
      Everything else (audio, video, usb) appears to be working correctly.
       
      Do you know how can I fix this?
       
      I'm attaching my config.plist and clover bootlog
       
      config.plist
      bootlog.txt

      Hello all,

      I have successfully gotten my Hackintosh working 99 percent. The remaining issue that I am running into is that my system will randomly kernel panic upon a user issued shutdown or reboot WHEN I have either a usb sound card or usb headset plugged into any of my USB ports (both 2.0 and 3.0). If I remove the headset, it will power down with no issues. Does anyone have any suggestions?

      My system is as follows:
      MacOS 10.14 Mojave
      Gigabyte H370 HD3
      8400 i5 Coffee Lake
      Radeon RX 580 sound card

      I have the internal audio disabled. I have also attached my config.plist file.

      I have the following Kexts installed:

      FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext
      USBInjectAll.kext
      FakeSMC.kext
      WhateverGreen.kext
      IntelMausiEthernet.kext
      XHCI-300-series-injector.kext

      Lilu.kext


      Thank you.

      Premise: the following explanation is only to exploit the little APFS Recovery (less than 600 MB) embedded inside the APFS File System, so avoiding an external USB Installer, you can't reinstall macOS from here but use just the Utilities (Terminal, DiskUtility) in case of emergency, however as known from a Recovery Terminal can do a lot of things, especially troubleshooting an unbootable macOS.
       
      To those who have installed Mojave on APFS file system with a GUID/GPT Scheme (I suppose it will work even on MBR scheme), I have managed to "fix" the "APFS Recovery Volume" to make it bootable from any computer (capable of HighSierra and Mojave) with USB input devices (trackpad, keyboard, USB mouse and so on) responsive, working wifi and everything else, just follow next steps, totally safe and harmless for any Mojave installation, after booting normally from your Mojave APFS Volume, launch Terminal and type:

      diskutil apfs list
      {locate your "APFS Recovery Volume" on diskXs3 [for an internal "APFS Container" is typically mounted on disk1s3]}
      On APFS scheme the "APFS Recovery Volume" is tipically on the 3rd (hidden) partition.

      diskutil mount diskXs3
      open /Volumes/Recovery

      landing on Finder, double click on the "random-numbers-letters" folder (it's the gpt UUID folder where Recovery stores itself), once inside rename these files:

      prelinkedkernel into prelinkedkernelbackup
      immutablekernel into immutablekernelbackup
      PlatformSupport.plist into PlatformSupportbackup

      Don't close this opened Finder window yet, once you renamed those 3 files, now you have to open a new Finder window, then from this new Finder window go into your Mojave path: /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/

      while inside this path copy the file prelinkedkernel into the previous Finder window exactly where you renamed those 3 files
       
      lastly rename this fresh copied file from prelinkedkernel to immutablekernel

      Now you have a working APFS Recovery Volume.
       
       
      Note for those who use Clover bootloader in the config.plist you have to don't "Hide" the APFS Preboot and Recovery hidden partition, otherwise you can't use the APFS Recovery.

      Hello
       
      My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips.
       
      Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows.
       
      I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball.
       
      I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button).
       
      I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same.
       
      I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent.
       
      I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail.
       
      What's the best way to troubleshoot this?
       
      Thanks
