chameleon boot screen at startup after install

Question

sodaboi    0

Hi everyone,

I was able to 'successfully' install yosemite zone 10.10.2 on my system with msi z97 guard-pro mobo with an i5 haswell chip. After install, the system rebooted, and the chameleon boot screen shows. I selected my hard drive and mac os x loads after the hackintosh zone screen. I configure and the hackintosh zone runs successfully. After I restart, i get the chameleon boot screen again. I have to press enter (no boot flag) for the computer to continue loading: hackintosh zone screen, then mac os loads.

Every single time the system boots, the chameleon screen shows and the user has to press enter to continue loading.

Is this expected? Is there any way to not have to press enter to continue loading? Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

It looks like its the default behavior for the chameleon version used in this distro, the org.chameleon.Boot.plist only contains the necesary settings to boot the Hackintosh when OS X is installed. Any other stuff needs to be added later. Don't forget to backup your Extra folder when doing changes on it :-).

 

Note: If you are planing on using Themes for chameleon like BootToLion or any of your choice, make sure you don't have the -v (Verbose) swicth on the org.chameleon.Boot.plist file, it will crash your hackintosh and -x or -F or -f or any other option will not work to recover from that. Everything goes wrong during the transition from the boot theme to the apple logo while the system is loading. IT took me several hours and a lot of snapshots restorations before I figured out what was wrong. Once again this all was done and tested on VMware 10 & 11.

 

Note: Timeout option for chameleon only works fine if Quiet Boot option is enable, otherwise you will be prompted to choose the OS and will have to hit enter to load it.

edit org.chameleon.Boot.plist in the Extra folder add the following on it:

 

<key>Timeout></key>    =  "how long to wait before loading the OS in seconds"

<string>1</string>

<key>Wait</key>            =  "Wait to press a key to continue loading the OS (YES/NO)"

<string>No</string>

<key>Quiet Boot</key>  =  "Suppress selection menu (YES/NO)"

<string>Yes</string>

Thank you for your help. I'll try this when I get home. Consider it resolved unless I come back stating otherwise.

I do have a question. Does Hackintosh Zone (distro) leave the behavior that I'm seeing on by default or did I do something wrong during install? I ask because I googled and was unable to find others having this same issue. Thanks!

    • 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)
