  1. http://myhack.sojugarden.com/2009/12/dual-booting-demystified/ An old guide, but information on time sync + switching over to AHCI, including registry edits is provided.
  2. Boot with -v so we can see where it is freezing.
  3. Good common sense tips. I'd say with #5 though you should first test the flags by entering them manually at the chameleon boot prompt, if they work as expected, then you may add them to the chameleon boot plist. I would also add #6 Avoid software which installs kexts or chameleon for you, very few of these have undergone the testing that myHack/myFix has undergone and if you are using myHack some of these applications will break some of the significant benefits that things like myFix have to offer. Manual installation or myHack/myFix methods are the only methods that I personally endorse as they are the only methods that I know inside and out and have good documentation and support available.
  4. Just inject the device into your dsdt for now, we're working to improve the code we have added to chameleon for graphics enabler support, if you want you can PM me and I will send you a beta version of myhack with our latest improvements for you to test if adding the IGPU device data to your dsdt proves to be too difficult for you.
  5. You have a working OS X system yes? Why not just reinstall from a clean myHack USB installation disk? I mean you have the general knowledge now of what extensions you'll need so setting up the Extra's shouldn't be too difficult. Alternatively - You shouldn't need a preboot/postboot img once you've actually achieved an installation - those are only there to help you get up and running using a swap cd. You should be able to just remove them and ensure you have what you need in /Extra and just run myfix -t / then reboot.
  6. Can you use the usb key to boot your OS X installation? (select usb key at bios boot menut -> hit tab at the chameleon boot prompt -> select your internal hdd that you installed OS X on and hit enter). From there open myHack app, select 'Install Chameleon' option and target your / partition. This should fix the problem, if it does not you could try using myHack from the utilities menu on the OS X Installer, run "install chameleon' option, target the volume that contains your OS X installation. If neither of the above fix your bootloader on the internal partition let me know I could send you a beta that contains an updated Chameleon bootloader as well as some new installation routines that may help to resolve the issue if it persists.
  7. Remove natit.kext, voodoo*.kext, and platformuuid.kext, from the preboot.dmg /Extra - use the following boot flags: GraphicsEnabler=No GraphicsMode=1024x768x32 -v CPUS=1 Once you get to the installed environment create a new usb installer with myHack so you have some sort of recovery environment as you poke around further - remember myhack 3.1.2 still has a bug with 10.6 installer creation under a 10.6 os - rename your / volume to zz-name to avoid the bug. From there I will need to know what graphics are on your notebook to find a better solution than natit... if there is one.
  8. I can't download that zip file but all I'd really need to see is an ls -l /Extra to have a better picture. Usually sleep related issues are linked to cpu power management - you could use 'sleepenabler.kext' while still using nullcpupowermanagement.kext to achieve sleep but you would not have proper pstate's which is still important for energy savings. To get functional power management on that i5 Sandy Bridge system is quite trivial though I showed an example here: http://myhack.sojugarden.com/2012/08/my-new-hackintosh/ I have done that on both Sandy Bridge Mobile and Ivy Bridge Desktop processors without problem. If it doesn't work right off the bat you may need some minor tweakage to your dsdt to allow sleep to function.
  9. The issue tracker is not publicly available at this time but I hope to be able to post it publicly in the future. It's a software limitation of the issue tracker I use.
  10. This is a known bug and will be fixed in the release of myHack 3.2 - see this screenshot from my issue tracker for the details: Temporary resolution: Rename all other HFS+ partitions with OS X on them to Z_Oldname - the Z_ prefix will make them show up after the Mac OS X Install DVD in /Volumes/ so myHack will ignore them. If that doesn't work - use traditional disk utility method to restore 10.6.3 disk image to the usb stick, then use myhack options "Install myHack Utilities", "Install Extra", & "Install Chameleon" in that order with the usb stick as your target - this will effectively achieve the same results as running myHack create installer option.
  11. I can't help much with the X79 issues as I have no personal experience with that platform but I did notice something I'd like to point out here... Just to clarify cpus=1 does not limit you to a single core, it limits you to a single cpu socket. The kernel is designed to support multiple processor systems (think mac pro dual cpu xeons) and that causes acpi problems on some systems when the kernel expect to find a second cpu socket but doesn't. All of your cores are still available, you are only telling chameleon to limit OS X to using a single cpu with multiple cores. The hang on PCI Configuration Begin is typically due to unsupported graphics, or improperly initialized graphics in ML. Use zip compression on your dsdt and ioreg and it should be able to be uploaded here.
  12. I was just waking up when i first read this this morning and I thought he had tried cpus=1 but it turned out on closer inspection to be pcis=1 lol... my bad. Anyway yes GE=Y is default in myHack so what Beta suggested should be the correct string to boot your system.
  13. with an nvidia 9400GT you will definitely need GraphicsEnabler=Yes or the GPU injected into the dsdt. You might have to remove the NV kexts to force VESA mode if that doesn't work.
  14. I'm not sure about the wireless either, you will have to look that up. Do what I've suggested so far above and then report back before myself or others post any more details, I should be able to help you with your power management as well, it may be as simple as using a patched kext as I did on my own sandy bridge notebook and ivy bridge desktop but it may also require some dsdt work. Audio will require you use a patched AppleHDA.kext + DSDT modification *OR* voodoohda as you have already, just keep in mind - to use voodoohda you must remove AppleHDA.kext from /System/Library/Extensions/ otherwise it will cause panics.
