[SOLVED] Chameleon 2 RC4 RAID OSx86 boot issues
« on: April 22, 2010, 01:17:23 AM »
Hi there,

so i decided that i wanted to hackintosh my HP DV9740us laptop. this laptop is different in the sense that it has the option for 2 HDDs in it. my plan is to just make it a sole OSX laptop and use VMware fusion for any windows needs I have. so i decided to go pick up a retail snow leopard install disk. I found a guide on how to do a retail install and followed that.
http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build...start-to-finish
when it came time to partition my HDD's i decided to set it up using osx software raid to raid 0 the 2 hdds. everything installled fine and i can successfully boot into OSX using the USB flash drive the guide instructed me to set up. the problem is i wanted to make the laptop bootable without the USB drive. so i found this guide....
http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversi...hp/t160467.html
and followed that exactly. but im having troubles booting still.

without the flash drive plugged in, booting from the HDDs i get the following text.

Boot0: GPT
Boot0: Testing
Boot0: Testing
Boot0: Done

and then i get a flashing cursor next to the last boot0: done. and doesnt boot any further.


what could be the issue?

thanks

Jason Hill

Did you use the fdisk binary that comes with the Chameleon download?

have you seen this topic:

Yes, I was using the fdisk supplied with the chameleon download.
I had not seen that thread, but it doesnt looks like it applies for me, because im not trying to dual boot with windows. its going to be just OSX installed on the machine.

Hi Jason,

It seems that none of your HFS partitions have boot1h installed properly on the drive where you're booting from.

Bye,

Ok, first paste the output of the "diskutil list" command. I don't know your current partition layout.

You can install Chameleon (boot1h, boot, Extra files) to your hidden EFI partitions (disk0s1 + disk1s1) or onto the hidden raid helper partitions (disk0s3 + disk1s3).
