White screen with Apple Logo after Chimera install #iATKOS #ML2


Dear all,



First of all, thanks for reading this post.



I'm a Hackintosh newbie doing my first Hackintosh config and i have some problems :'(



I installed MacOSX 10.8.3 with Unibeast and after the install, i ran Multibeast and when selecting only "DSDT-FREE", i have a white screen.



So, i've made a new clean install of MacOSX and installed Chimera with Multibeast. On reboot: White Apple logo page with the infinite loop.



I don't know what to do.

I can boot with my USB Key on MacOSX by using -x. I can't boot by using -x on Chimera by booting from my HDD



EDIT: I retried with Multibeast and DSDT Free and here is the -V log:

Here is my config:

I7 3770K

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H rev 1.1

SSD Samsung 840 Series 120Gb

Gigabyte NVIDIA GTX670

16GB DDR3 RAM CORSAIR VENGEANCE



Thank you in advance for your help.

Problem with booting in Chameleon - black screen. #AMD


Hi everyone!



I'm fresh user (regards from Poland!). I installed SL on this configuration:



MB: Asus M4A77TD Pro

Phenom II X4 945

Graphics: ATI Radeon HD4800 (GPU RV770)

RAM: 8GB



At this moment I can boot into OSX by Nawcom ModCD with flags:

arch=i386 -force64 maxmem=4096.



When I installed Chameleon (I'm using Chameleon Wizard) system hangs on black screen. There's no kernel panic, no logo, only black screen.

I tried to change version of Chameleon (2189, 2168), but without success.



I used Chameleon flags:

Verbose mode

Ignore boot cache

GUI

32-bit

Force 64bit

Busratio = 20

and on some boot GrahicsEnabler



Where I can find boot lo or something similar?

Can You suggest me something?

Maybe I should try other bootloader (I read about chimera)?



Regards, and thanks in advance for help.

Anyone running ESXi 5.1 on an Xserve? #Hackintosh

Since I found the Unlocker last week, I've been trying to figure out how I want to add an Apple ESXi 5.1 host to my lab. I recently purchased a late 2012 Mac Mini that I'm using as an HTPC and I can't decide if I want to use it as an ESXi host, then getting an older Mini to use as an HTPC. I have the i7 Mini (4 cores) and running a few VMs on it would really allow me to use its power instead of it being idle most of the time. Another option is getting another <$150 Dell server (2 x Xeon L5420 quad cores, already have 2) to use with Unlocker as a dedicated OS X ESXi host. I can't use one of those for OS X now because they're used to study for the VCP exam, which means I have to use vCenter Server. Unlocker doesn't work on hosts added to a vCenter Server. Another option is getting a 2008/2009 Apple Xserve.



I've been doing a ton of Googling this weekend and it seems that there really aren't any major issues running ESXi 5.1 on the 2008 or 2009 Xserve. Apple's RAID card doesn't work but that doesn't matter to me since I'll be using shared storage. I've also read that it runs great on the new Mac Mini but I've found less info on it than the Xserve. At the moment the Mini seems like the more solid option, but adding an Xserve to my home server rack is roughly the same cost of buying an older Mini. Plus having an Xserve in my home rack would be sexy. I'm such a geek. :)



Just wondering if anyone has ESX running on an Xserve and would love to hear details on it and your experience with it. Same goes for those with it on a Mini too. Still weighing the pros/cons of each and I'm torn. Not sure what to do..

Snow Leopard Won't Boot on ASrock mobo #iATKOS

Fairly recently I built a computer with an ASrock Mobo and an Intel Pentium D 3.4 Ghz processor. As for graphics, it is just the onboard 8mb card. There is 2 GB of RAM. So I wanted to run Snow leopard on it, and I have on a netbook before, but when I try to load SN, it just sits there with the apple logo. This happens with Chameleon RC 3 and 1. Chimera and iBoot don't work at all. When I try to boot in verbose mode, it shows a blank screen. If I try legacy bootloader for 10.6, it gives a kernal panic. Does anyone have any ideas?

ESX 5.1 workstation build for ML VM build. #Hackintosh

Hi - been working on getting an upgrade together for my current workstation. Not having a huge budget and needing as much bang for buck I want to keep as much as possible and replace as little as possible (red goes, green stays):



Asus P5Q Pro Intel P45 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 LGA775 'Yorkfield' 2.83GHz 12MB-cache (1333FSB) Processor

OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Dual Channel Platinum Series DDR2

NVidia GeForce 8800 GTX

Samsung 830 128 GB SSD

Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB 10000RPM SATA-II 16MB Cache - OEM

2 - Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARS 2TB

2 - Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB SATA-II

Lian-Li PC-B25B Aluminium Midi-Tower - Black (No PSU)

Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme CPU Cooler (Socket AM2/LGA775)

Samsung SH-S223F/BEBE 22x DVDąRW SATA Dual Layer ReWriter (Black) - OEM

Noctua NF-S12 800RPM 120mm Silent Case Fan - 3 Pin

Hiper 630W HPU-4M630 SLi Certified PSU



The new hardware that I am so far gravitating towards is as follows:

Supermicro X9SRA

Intel Xeon Processor E5-2620

2 x Kingston ValueRAM - ECC Memory - 16 GB - DIMM

AMD FirePro V4900 Professional Graphics

Supermicro SNK-P0050AP4 - Cooler

I would use a number of VM's for development purposes (using RHEL, Windows Server for work) and then ML as my everyday machine (photo editing with Aperture, web surfing, a little video editing).



With little experience on the VMware ESX side any feedback would be most appreciated; specifically around how to get sound the ALC889 working in ML - would it be possible to do iopath/passthrough with sound ?



I have seen evidence of the V4900 GPU working being passed through to VM from ESX here:

https://docs.google....d1alRUTlE#gid=0

and working in ML here:

http://www.insanelym...00#entry1897975



Finally wireless; I am currently using a Linksys WMP300N - would passthrough be possible here. I suspect not from what I have read plus only two passthroughs are allowed per VM. Otherwise I would be going with this a WUMC710.



Advice would be most appreciated.

GeForce GTX TITAN works in MacPro #Hackintosh

Netkas again did it !!



SOURCE

Quote



I have written a special rom for GTX Titan, which allows it to work in OSX 10.7.5 and 10.8.3.

It supports both 32-bit MacPro 1,1/2,1 and 64-bit MacPro 3,1+.

Since it involves several low-level hacks, hackint0sh user won’t be able to get it to work, sorry.

I’ll upload the rom after I fix 5 GT/s issue, so far it runs at 2.5 GT/s.

How to Get Bokeh Light Effects with the iPhone Camera #Mac


iPhone bokeh


Bokeh is a photography effect that creates strong light blurs on any out of focus light, frequently rendered as circular blurry elements where a point of light is visible in the image. You’ll see it often in professional photography as well as more abstract artistically oriented photography, and it can help to create a depth of field and also add some very unique character to photos. But bokeh isn’t just for professionals with expensive lenses and DSLR cameras, you can get that same effect shooting with an iPhone as well. We’ll cover two easy ways to do it, one uses nothing but your iPhone, and the second uses the excellent third party lens attachment known as Olloclip.


For the purposes here, we’re going to focus on casting a strong abstract bokeh effect on everything in an image that is shot with the iPhone, rather than just the background elements as you’d commonly find in macro photography and portraits.


Create Bokeh on the iPhone with Focus Lock


The simplest way to create bokeh effect on all lit elements of a picture are to utilize the iPhone cameras software focus lock feature. Keeping in mind that focus lock is also exposure lock – you can’t separate the two with the standard iOS camera, yet at least – you’ll want to focus lock on something that is roughly the same exposure, particularly when shooting in daylight. For shooting night photos, the exposure lock is less important, though the depth of field remains crucial.


Bokeh in Daylight


Shooting bokeh in the daylight can take some trial and error to get down, but it’s not particularly complicated once you try a few times. The gist of it is to lock onto something very close as if you were taking a macro photo, but then turn arrange the camera to shoot the subject instead, creating the bokeh:



  • Launch the Camera app

  • Find a close object of approximately the same exposure (brightness) as the subject you wish to shoot with bokeh

  • Place the iPhone camera roughly 3-8″ away from that object and tap and hold on the screen to focus lock on that object, you will know it’s active when “AE/AF Lock” appears on screen

  • With Focus Lock on, aim at the subject and take the picture to capture the bokeh effect


With the focus lock trick in daylight, it generally works best to have HDR photos enabled, because it’s often the HDR photo and not the standard image that has the most accurate reproduction of colors while still maintaining the strong bokeh blur that was desired.


The example images below demonstrate this trick while shooting a tree in directly sunlight. You’ll notice the initial exposure isn’t that great, it’s the HDR photo that captures the full bokeh effect we’re aiming for here with better color reproduction.


Initial default exposure with bokeh but overexposed:


Shoot daylight bokeh with iPhone


The better HDR photo with strong bokeh:


Daylight bokeh with iPhone


It may take you a few times to get it down, but it’s very easy once you figure out the proper exposure for the subject. I’m not much of a photographer but get creative and you’ll almost certainly create better pictures than the samples shown here.


Capturing Bokeh at Night & with Dark Lighting


Shooting bokeh on the iPhone is a lot easier at night or in dark lighting, and it’s great for capturing city lights or night scenes in an abstract way. The basics are similar to getting bokeh in daylight, though the HDR aspect is less significant:



  • Open Camera app and tap-and-hold for Focus Lock onto any object away from the lighting source you want to shoot

  • With Focus Lock enabled, aim at your subject and shoot the picture while holding fairly steady – do note the bokeh will compensate for some jitteriness of the lens


We’ll review some user submitted photos for this one (thanks Elizabeth!), which demonstrates the bokeh effect at night when taking a picture of a distant street from a rooftop. Here’s the initial exposure, notice the screenshot is blurred because the iPhone isn’t that great at taking night photos – but we’ll use that to our advantage here – the focus lock is being set on a random dark area of the screen:


iPhone night bokeh


Here’s the final shot of that same road, with a good bokeh blur captured in the image:


Night bokeh photography with iPhone


I takes advantage of the iPhones inability to shoot great photos at night, and instead you end up with a pretty nice bokeh effect.

The focus locking technique tends to work best in low lighting situations, particularly at night.


Thanks to Elizabeth for providing the tip idea and night picture


Capturing Strong Bokeh Effects with an iPhone & Olloclip


If the focus lock bokeh trick isn’t enough for you and you want more professional quality pictures, you’ll need to step it up and get a third party lens for the iPhone. The Olloclip is our lens of choice for this purpose, it includes three lenses: a macro lens, a wide-angle lens, and a fish eye lens. For the purposes of creating very strong bokeh, you’ll want to use the macro lens.


If interested, you can get an Olloclip detachable lens from Amazon at a fairly sizable discount.



  • Attach the Olloclip onto the iPhone camera with the macro lens

  • Point at any far away, well-lit object to immediately see very strong bokeh and take the picture


With the Olloclip trick, you don’t even need to focus or anything, because the macro lens and it’s focal length force everything to blur that’s at a distance.


Here’s a shot of a tree with the Olloclip macro lens attached, the strong bokeh is very obvious:


Bokeh shot with iPhone and Olloclip


I’m not much of a photographer but the Instagram blog shows us this bokeh photo taken with an Olloclip, demonstrating the before and after of shooting christmas lights to get the effect:


iPhone bokeh with an Olloclip from Instagram

Retail SL 10.6.3 install fail on Sandy Bridge i7 2700k 16gb #iATKOS

Hi everyone,



I'm struggling to get my retail copy of SL to boot from the installer DVD. Any advice is much appreciated!



I should note: I created an image of it and restored it to an 8gb usb stick via Disk Utility with a 128mb partition containing Chameleon 2.1r2069. This is because I have no optical drive for the machine I am installing to.



Chameleon runs fine (of course) so I select the SL install partition and run with -v to see where it is stopping. It loads the legacy kernel (which was recommended in prior reading) but then stalls without further messages.



My hardware:



GA-Z68X-UD5-B3

4x4GB Corsair Vengance 1600 RAM

AMD Radeon 6670

Core i7 2700K

650W PSU



The only thing left that I can think of is fiddle with things in org.chameleon.Boot.plist.



Please help! Has anyone with this hardware setup done this before? Do I need to:



a) Keep persisting with a USB stick install, or

b) Pull out the SATA drive I want to install to, mount it in a caddy and install SL from my old macbook laptop, or

c) Buy a DVD drive (last resort, and will this even help?)



I've even tried iBoot (no luck at all) and myHack (got to the white Apple logo screen and stalled). I'm running out of time and options, and wishing I bought a S/H imac! :(

iATKOS ML Mountain Lion 10.8 [TORRENT]



- Burn the dmg image to a blank 4.7GB DVD (±R ,±RW) using Disk Utility or another burning application on OS X and then you are ready to boot with the DVD.
or- Restore the dmg image to a USB media and install latest chameleon to it (google is your friend) then boot with it.
- Windowsers can burn the dmg to 4.7GB DVD using Transmacor- Use x-flash or some other applications to restore the dmg to USB media, then install latest chameleon bootloader to it (google is still your friend) then boot with it.
Türk Team is seeding iATKOS ML BETA5 bootable dmg to iATKOS operators right now. This will help us to make it better.

A few info about the iATKOS ML:
- It is 64bit only which will exclude Intel Core Duo and older Intel processors. I did not add support for Atom CPUs because of the unsupported GPUs on netbooks.- AMD CPUs can not be supported. Maybe another release, maybe another lifetime.- The image can not fit into 4.7GB DVD, it is BIG. So, a Dual Layer DVD or a Blu-Ray disk will be needed to burn it, or a USB flash memory/hdd with a partition bigger than 6gb to restore the dmg.



This is iHackintosh 10.8

Kernel panic caused by wrong AppleNForceATA? #iATKOS

Hi. I have osx 10.6.2 installed (hazard) and it seems ok I can use it normally but the moment I start doing a lot of things at once or I guess cpu intensive things or actually things that seem to access my hard drive a lot too, like after or during installation of a lot of heavy apps (also while downloading League of Legends, if I start doing stuff on the side) I get this error:




Code:



panic(cpu 1 caller 0x55848d): "getPhysicalSegment () out of 32b range 0x100089000, len 0x1000, class IOGeneralMemoryDescriptor"@/Users/nawcom/Desktop/xnu-1586.2.11/iokit/Kernel/IOMemoryDescriptor .cpp:1587


I looked around and found that it might be because I don't have a good AppleNForceATA kext installed, I did not chose any option for it when I installed SL I didnt see one.



In my system profiler it says AppleNForceATA versopn 1.0.3 - 63-bit = no

I've tried booting with arch=i386 but the same happens.



I dont want to install any random AppleNForceATA.kext as I read that it might cause my system not to boot. is there anyway to back up the one I have and place it back through commands if the new one doesn't work?



My mobo has Chipset - NVIDIA® GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a. NOTE: this mobo doesnt hace AHCI mode.

I just want to make sure I get the correct one and dont rush things.



I think this is the last problem I have. I solved my gfx card overheating (made my own fan knob controller) and Im working on the audio thanks to a lot of help but if I cant I'll just buy an usb audio thing.

So if I can get rid of this kernel panic I'll be very very happy probably wont mess with it for a very long time, I dont seem to have any other problems.



If anyone can help me I'd appreciate it very much.

Snow Leo White/Grey screen after booting, Installed using Nawcom Boot CD, on GMA 900 #iATKOS

Hi.



I have a ThinkPad X41, and I am trying to install Snow Leopard on it.



It's hardware is very similar to the super-popular Dell Inspiron 6000. Specs are as follows.



1.5Ghz Intel Pentium M 400MHz FSB

GMA 900

2.5GB DDR2 400MHz

AC97 Audio something.

ICH6



I managed to get snow leopard booting with a legacy kernel, as well as the non-ahci kext that came with nawcom's boot CD, and chameleon 2.1. However, after booting up, when it brings up the GUI, I get a white/grey screen.



I've tried booting with GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes, -f -x and UseKernelCache=No with no avail.



I should also mention that -s works just fine and brings me into the single-user mode.



Anyone have any suggestions?



Thanks.



Edit:



Installed the AppleIntelIntegratedFB.kext from another mac provided here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...068-on-gma900/



Put the HDD back inside the ThinkPad, MacOS booted up to the GUI, and the "Welcome" screen came up. However after selecting my keyboard layout, I've been stuck on the spinning beach-ball ever since...

Atheros AR 9462 wireless chipset not working #iATKOS #ML2

Hi,



I'm hoping to perhaps make contact with information regarding getting my Atheros AR9462 chipset to properly work. As of my latest attempt my atheros and atheros21 chipset is not being recognized and thus the process is being aborted by mac (I don't remember the verbatim error produced, it's a com.apple.kextd error however if that helps). I'm fairly certain the problem comes down to the kexts I'm using not being compatible with the Atheros AR9462. I've tried to add in the correct id to the kexts but this also has not worked.



Some additional background information:

MOBO - Asus Sabertooth Z77 UEFI, DSDT-free installation, BIOS settings factory standard with excpection of virtualization turned on (for linux purposes I require this is on)

CPU - Intel i7 3770k



Software build:

2 HDD, Mac OSX on its own, multibooting Win7/Ubuntu/Mac OS x (OSX booted through chainload grub -> chimera -> os x)



Also I should note, the wireless portion of the wifi card (which I believe is routed through usb2.0 cable) is working. I'm assuming this is due to the usb 2.0 cable routed from the actual card. I believe the PCI wireless portion is what's not working, but I haven't confirmed this assumption scientifically. It's just my assumption based on what little I do know about OS X coupled with a basic assessment of the electronic circuitry on the card.



I've done a lot of online research on this chipset and it seems we're all hitting a wall - but here's to hoping someone's figured it out and is willing to share. If all else fails I'll probably break down and invest in a more compatible card since the price of another card is far cheaper than the cost in time of writing a kext from scratch (especially given I don't really know all that much about kexts :P)



Thanks again for any provided assistance,

Krafty

Simple mount command refused + QNAP Mediabox Problem #Hackintosh

Hello, I have two questions.



1)

So I am making a script to mount my external shares.

One share is the NAS and one is an USB disk on the router with the Samba capability.



The script is a simple one:

do shell script "mount -t smbfs //login:pass@<path to NAS> /<path to mount folder>"



Executing the above on the NAS works great.

Executing it on the USB disk (which is actually a samba share) doesn't work. I checked like 20 times for mistakes, but I see none. It says "No such file or directory"



However, when I go to the Finder, "Connect to Server", and type in smb://router, it connects without a question. Pulls the info from the keychain also.



Why is one Samba share working (NAS) and the other doesn't (router).



2)

I turned on samba sharing on OSX, and I can access the shares from other windows computers correctly and also log into shares properly.

However, I own a QNAP NMP-1000P media player, and it won't access the shares properly, no matter what I do.

Shares from Windows normally work however, so it's an OSX fault apparently, or simple incompatibility.

Intermittent Black Screen on Boot #iATKOS #ML2

I bet this is a pretty common problem with Hackintosh installations, but mine is intermittent and it didn't do this before! :)



I have 10.8 ML installed and updated, running perfectly on a Dell Optiplex 960, 6 GB RAM, with nVidia 8600 GTS graphics. What a sweet little machine.



Just a few days ago I noticed I was getting this black screen, after you see the Apple icon on the light gray background. Then the black screen appears, and the monitor throws an error message: No Video.



I'm running an iATKOS installation, if that's of any importance.



If I keep restarting the machine, eventually the OS will load and I can get to a log-in screen.



For some reason, the nVidia driver is not being loaded, but I don't know why and it wasn't a problem before.



(You can tell when the video driver gets loaded - the graphics card fan spins down to an idle. When the machine is booting it spins FAST.)



Can anyone tell me what's causing this? It never happened before and this is a NICE machine. Very stable and fast. I recently installed FCP 7, but I can't see why that would affect the boot sequence.



Thank you.

Hi guys,



I searched myself crazy on the net, reading the man page about security(1) and being quite a beginner, can't really pinpoint how to do this.

I want to mount my NAS drive to a folder: a movies folder on the NAS to my Movies folder on the OSX drive in the Users/Kosta. It asks for the password in the Terminal when I script that. I can however type in the password in text and save the app as run only (Option 1).



However, I would prefer to learn how to script a keychain password into the Applescript, without it really showing. I mean, not even sure if it makes sense, security-wise… should I just save the app as run only, or should I even bother with entering the keychain access, as in, if it's even more secure?



Any help would be appreciated!

Well my friends, I hope you will help me because I am this fight a long time, researching, researching, plan to install osx mountain lion on my pc, more think my only problem is my intel GMA4500 graphics card, I would love to have fully functional system, due to some more research, I realized that this is not so, I wonder if I can do something to circumvent this situation, as many say they could not download apps for the app store, many can not view flash videos, watch a dvd system due to the graphics card, I believe you are trade professionals in the subject, so hopefully that will help me, really I am a big fan of apple,

* For the record, I have 2 gigs of ram, graphics card and said GMA4500 intel, intel core i3.

Really hope that will help me friends



Thanks

How do I do "no speedstep"? #iATKOS #ML2

Hello everyone,



Simple question: how do I turn off stepping in OSX? Windows listens to my BIOS. OSX apparently doesn't.



Things that might help:

HW: Asus P8Z77-V Pro + 2600K @ 4.8Ghz

OSX: custom SSDT installed, Chameleon BL, P/C states off, Drop SSDT activated, SMBios iMac13,2, working fine switching between x16 and x48 (I would however prefer better speedstep, more "inbetween").

Tried nullcpumanagement kext, it dropped the CPU speed to 3.4Ghz, but I want 4.8 fixed.

Internal audio VS External audio. (internal problems) #iATKOS

Hello. I've recently installed osx 10.6.2 and I install it with the voodooHDA option and the sound seems to work fine until I install my xfx radeon hd 4850 kexts. I don't understand why it stops working after that but no audio device is recognized but voodoo seems to be installed. even tried several different versions.



If someone could help me with the process of identifying the problem and correcting it by installing the right things I'd appreciate it a lot.



but a friend had this very same problem and he just used an external usb audio card much like this one Mini 3D USB 2 0 External Sound Card 7 1 Audio Adapter | eBay



Would that easily fix my problem? it says it's driverless for OSX too (some dont specify)



I would prefer fixing my audio device though because I'd have to wait for the usb audio thing to arrive at my home and I really want to get my osx working right away.



my mobo model is asrock N68C-S UCC ASRock > N68C-S UCC

Doesnt specify much about the audio just says "5.1 CH HD Audio (VIA® VT1705 Audio Codec)"
