Questions about bootloaders.

Question

Hey guys! Love the distro Niresh!

 

works decent on my PC, this is my seconds install because I went and mocked up the boot loader last time trying to find something that works.

 

PC Specs:
 

AMD Phenom XII 555 Black Edition

NVidia GeForce 9800GT

4GB Ram

1TB Hard-Drive

(DVD drive unplugged because I was getting a "Waiting for root device..." message on installing and I needed to plug my HD into SATA1)

 

Anyways, 

What boot loader does Niresh come bundled with? when booting up if I mash the Right or Left arrow keys it will come up with my partitions and ask me which I would like to boot to, so I'm assuming it came bundled with one. (It also says Niresh on the top)

 

I have Windows and Mac on the same disk, in separate partitions, and I'm trying to get back into Windows now and have it setup for a dual-boot.

 

Right now i'm about to boot up my windows disk and restore the boot manager that came with windows.

 

I was reading a guide that said go in this order:

 

Install windows 8.1

Install niresh 10.9

Install chameleon

Fix windows boot manager

Install EasyBCD I believe.

 

anyways can I skip Chameleon and would the loader that came with the 10.9.0 Niresh distro work instead?

 

I was trying to install Chameleon or rEFIt or Chimera and even Clover last night and every time I booted up It was still the default Niresh boot loader, well I completely messed everything up to the point it wouldn't boot without the USB drive and I don't want to make the same mistake again.

 

Thanks guys.

depend upon you choose bootloader 

1.clover

2.chameleon 

 

chimera is chameleon branch so there is not ig differences between ,chameleon is Legend and Clover best to fit with UEFI bIos Motherboard 

 

you won't able to boot without USB is bcoz won't have bootloader on your partition means Hackintosh install of these bootloader 

 

here is also option for you to boot up with Bootloader

1.windows

2.mac bootloader above all

Alright! got it working, I never checked out the customization options during the install and I thought Clover was running by default when it was really Chameleon.

 

Last question, right now I have my Chameleon plist boot files to run the command "kernel=amd" every time I boot, is this necessary?

it's neccesary when your kernel won't load and try without it if it work for you then don't need

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
    • 980m+intel 530, 6820hk 512ssd+120ssd+1TB im trying to install macOsierra, and i tried a lot of combinations of arguments and configuration, nothing seems to work, i got the same problem every time ofter i start the installation! Is saying: System uptime in  nanoseconds: some random numbers.
