Won't boot without USB process - can't write MBR on disk

Question

Won't boot without USB process - can't write MBR on disk

Followed procedure documented to boot new MBR on disk drive so I can boot without USB.

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/os-x-wont-start-without-uni-multibeast-usb-heres-the-solution.152329/

Check what it says under 'NAME' for your uni/multibeast usb (mine is called 'Multibeast') and write:

  • cd /Volumes/Multibeast/usr/standalone/i386
  • fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk0
  • dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s1
  • After entering the last command you should get some feedback saying '2+0 records in, 2+0 records out', or something similar. Write:
  • cp boot /Volumes/EFI/
  •  

Gives an error at fidsk command : 

sh-3.2# cd /Volumes/USB1112/usr/standalone/i386/

sh-3.2# fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk1

fdisk: could not open MBR file boot0: No such file or directory

sh-3.2# fdisk -e /dev/disk1

fdisk: could not open MBR file /usr/standalone/i386/boot0: No such file or directory

Enter 'help' for information

fdisk: 1> print

Disk: /dev/disk1 geometry: 30401/255/63 [488397168 sectors]

 4: 00    0   0   0 -    0   0   0 [         0 -          0] unused      

fdisk: 1> exit

 

Tried to write MBR documents as :

fdisk: could not open MBR file /usr/standalone/i386/boot0: No such file or directory

Enter 'help' for information

fdisk: 1> show

Invalid command 'show'.  Try 'help'.

fdisk: 1> flag 3

Partition 3 marked active.

fdisk:*1> write

Device could not be accessed exclusively.

A reboot will be needed for changes to take effect. OK? [n] y

Writing MBR at offset 0.

fdisk: 1> exit

BUT I still get same error "

could not open MBR file boot0: No such file or directory

 

Please help,

Vasant

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
