I've had nothing but trouble trying to install this OS on ANY machine I own, multiple ways with legit and not so legit copies of OS X, NOTHING I did worked. Until I found this post. Heere is a collection of my edits to the post as I went figuring things out for myself as I think this thread is dead... anyway incase someone like me stumbles across it, here ya go:
Hi thanks for the post, I've been trying install on an inspiron 1525 for a week and your post is the farthest I've gotten. I've ran into issues though. I couldn't use SUSE to copy the .raw to my USB because of an "exception error" so I used "Image Writer" instead (https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/+download
), I tried the boot and it cut out just before the installer screen I got that os x gray colour then it was black. I'm having trouble trying the kexts fix
, through TransMac what I get is: (also see pic attached)
Install Mac OS X.app
I'm new to Mac can't find/don't know how to browse the "(System/Library/Extensions) and delete Extensions.mkext (System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup)" you mentioned.
Also tried to input this code but again dunno when or where or how to start the prompt to do so:
- Code: Select all
mount -uw /
mv AppleIntelIntegrated* AppleIntelGMA* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /kext_backup
Think you could help me out or tell me where I'm going wrong??
=========================================================================================================================================It's show hidden files in TransMac Options > Show Hidden Files, I'll report back if it works.
OK!! I will update this as I go incase someone else having trouble stumbles across it having never used the software
I deleted ALL of the files containing:
in their names. You will have to go into a "mac" or "contents" subfolder when trying to find some of them. Extensions.mkexts located in the cache directory path "System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup" My installation screen popped right up. I'm sure I'll have a million other issues as I've been at this for a week! but I will update as I go.Ok, After install completes boot back to USB drive but as it's starting tap '1' on the keyboard to launch Chameleon boot loader because the HDD you just installed to will not show up in Clover. Proceed to this link http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1716 to install boot loader to HDD and then install kexts as you need them.
I will update as I go.
