How to change bootloader - Hackintosh Mavericks - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

Hi guys. I had a perfect running Mavericks on my PC with chameleon bootloader. But yesterday I installed Clover bootloader (I thought that i will fix iMessage activation error) and now i can´t boot mavericks. It says me that my motherboard is not compatible witch mavericks (or clover bootloader i dont know) but with Chameleon it worked perfectly. Any ideas how to change bootloader ? Or make USB bootloader with Chameleon or how to delete fukin Clover? What can I do? Thanks a lot.  :)

 

 

SORRY for English. :D

Just boot the system using the usb installer to login back to your system and then just install

Chameleon bootloader.

Just install chameleon and thats it ,eatch time you install a bootloader it

Overwrites the other one.

@ just beause YOU dont know how to configure Clover doesn't mean it doesn't work. Infact Clover is the bootloader that has support for the most recent hardware and sometimes the only bootloader that works for enabling a wide variety of ATI cards. So please show some respect for developers who make such epic software open source and free for us to use and refrain from insulting them.

@Devonic,

Agree bro but cool down. You know the frustration of losing a working Hackintosh just because of a bootloader. And as I saw he used some good words (lol) too so he got out of control for a moment seems.

@Devonic Of course I´m respecting these guys who worked so hard for all bootloaders and other programs and I admire them! But as said Aman, i was out of control for a moment. Sorry, it wasn´t written seriously. :)

EDIT: I booted using usb installer but still nothing. Still have kernel panic with - not mac version set

@ It's okay :)

If you had a perfectly running hackintosh with Chameleon, you should be able to boot just fine with the Niresh Installer USB. Just check your flags or anything you might have missed.

I tried everythink. Lot of boot flags but nothin.

With chameleon I have a kernel panic and with Clover - this version of mac os is not supported on platform. ( p5w dh deluxe)

Any ideas? Except restoring system?

Maybe is problem in installed clover or chameleon? What about deleting clover and chameleon files from HDD with terminal? :) is it possible?

Thanks for your time

@ You could restore default chameleon's boot.plist files through terminal but the effectiveness of it is doubtful.

Just try re-installing the system with Chameleon selected as bootloader.

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
