Recommended Posts

Sorry for my spelling and language but do not know enough English 
I managed to install Mac OS 10.8.5 on a computer ACER Aspire M5811 
Motherboard: Foxconn H57M01A1 
CPU: Intel i5 3.2 TurboBoost 
However, I have a few problems the system runs only through installation dvd 
and the command-s. while Windows starts normally. I would like to be able to choose which system to boot. second problem is the webcam microsoft live web cam vx-3000 macam only indicator light starts but no image. third problem is the disconnect from time to time network adapter wifi USB Adapter 300N SITECOM. and other usb wifi card.

First lets go steps by steps...do you know how to install chameleon bootloader? Well all you have to do is

Go to the download area of this site and go to bootloaders and download Chameleon bootloader.

Then just install it to Your mac partition.and let it finish installing when it finish

Just restart your computer and you will see a screen that will let you choose between

Windows and mac.

with a network card already did it, it helped me install RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext and BearExtender-B037. I installed on a partition with Mac os. Clover_v2k_r2636 but still windows only starts.

and my video card work fine . was recognized as an Nvidia GT320 1GB. means that work . the last thing that still annoys me no sound 5.1. 

I have a card ALC888
but the boot loader is driving me crazy. everything works beautifully. only mac os must start from dvd
and why when starting mac os I have to write -s ? otherwise the system will not boot stuck on gray logo
so far it looks like this:
disk0s1 - Reserved by the system (Think is Windows Boot Partition)
disk0s2 - Windows 7 64bit
disk0s3 - garbage as movies pics
disk0s5 - Mac Os
So how do I install the Boot Loader to turn on the command -s when start ?

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
