  1. That is because you can not boot any other OS on these laptops than Windows (Legacy/UEFI) or Linux. I had the same error. At some point I managed to boot into Clover, but as soon as I selected the macOS installation entry, the laptop just rebooted. I believe there's a security in these BIOSes which only allows certain filesystems and partition tables to boot. So instead I installed a light-weight Linux distro on it and installed Yosemite in VMWare.
  2. A little late, aber das macht nichts. Are you using the nforcelan.kext?
  3. Instead of booting with -x, boot with -v and post a picture of your screen. Also, please provide information about your hardware and why you're only able to boot with -x.
  4. !!Nevermind, I fixed the otool error!! Okay, so I am trying to figure out the framebuffer personalities from AMD6000Controller.kext, but otools throws me an error: Script version 0.15 warning: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/otool: -Q functionality obsolete warning: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/otool: -Q functionality obsolete Any ideas? This is the connector table from my graphics card (I am on VGA, though): 164P03N5.NI2: C26401 Junbonator DDR3 128Mx16 Subsystem Vendor ID: 174b Subsystem ID: e164 Object Header Structure Size: 203 Connector Object Table Offset: 34 Router Object Table Offset: 0 Encoder Object Table Offset: 9d Display Path Table Offset: 12 Connector Object Id [12] which is [HDMI_TYPE_A] encoder obj id [0x20] which is [INTERNAL_UNIPHY1 (osx txmit 0x21 [duallink 0x1] enc 0x3)] linkb: true Connector Object Id [4] which is [DVI_D] encoder obj id [0x1e] which is [INTERNAL_UNIPHY (osx txmit 0x10 [duallink 0x0] enc 0x0)] linkb: false Connector Object Id [5] which is [VGA] encoder obj id [0x15] which is [INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (osx txmit 0x00 enc 0x10?)] linkb: false
  5. Sapphire Radeon HD 6450 on El Capitan Hi, I am running El Capitan 10.11.6 on my system for a week now and everything works fine (even iMessage, FaceTime, iCloud :D). The only problem is that the OS won't get the right framebuffer for my graphics card. Instead, it's using the default RadeonFramebuffer. QE/CI works though, but I can't play DVDs through the DVD Player app, because then it crashes. I am able to play DVDs through VLC, so it's not a big deal but it annoys me that everything works fine, except that damn framebuffer I've tried putting my Graphicscard's rom in the /Extra Folder with 'Use Ati Rom' enabled, GraphicsEnabler=yes, AtiConfig=Lotus/Muskgrass/Bulrushes, I've tried VGA as well as DVI but it uses RadeonFramebuffer nevertheless: Ricos-iMac:~ rico$ ioreg | grep ATY | | | | +-o ATY,AMD,RadeonFramebuffer@0 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x1000002d3, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (2725 ms), retain 8> | | | | +-o ATY,AMD,RadeonFramebuffer@1 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x1000002d4, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (1 ms), retain 8> | | | | +-o ATY,AMD,RadeonFramebuffer@2 <class AtiFbStub, id 0x1000002d5, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (1 ms), retain 8> My device ID (vendor = 1002, device id = 6779) is in AMDRadeon6000.kext, as well as in AMDRadeonX3000.kext and both are loaded. I'm out of ideas. Anyone that could help me with it? Thanks in advance. My system: MacOS Build: OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 using Enoch r2773 as boot loader and iMac10,1 as smbios CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q6600 Motherboard: unknown, I'm on a NEC Powermate VL280U Small Form Factor computer and the motherboard is produced for or by NEC; the chipset is 82G33/G31 Memory: 4GB DDR2 RAM (2x2GB, 677Mhz) Harddisk: 160GB SATA Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 6450 1GB (hdmi, dvi-d, vga)
  6. A little late, but just in case you (or someone else) are still searching for a solution: If you are using chameleon, copy your smbios.plist from your /Extra folder of your current Os X installation to the /Extra folder of your El Capitan installation Usb. It will solve the 'already installed' error and you will be able to install.
  7. Ah, I was being stupid. I updated Chameleon to the latest version and now I am able to boot the system from my harddrive.
  8. When you boot the installer with bootflag -v it will show you where it hangs. Take a picture of it and post it here.
  9. Can not boot up Yosemite install without installer USB Hi, It's been a while! So, I came across two old SFF setups that I could buy for just a couple of bucks. One of them is an NEC power mate VL280. I installed Yosemite 10.10.1 on it which I updated to 10.10.5 without problems. Everything is working fine, except for 2 little problems: 1. I can't boot up from my harddrive. Chameleon gives me the error that mach_kernel cannot be found. It boots fine when I use the Yosemite install USB to boot, though. When I link to the kernel in /System/Library/Kernel/ in the boot arguments, my computer just reboots. 2. Whenever the computer goes into standby, my monitor refuses to power back on. Any advice? Intel Core 2 Duo E6550, 2.3Ghz Motherboard is unknown, since it is produced for NEC, but it has the Intel G31 or G33 chipset Sapphire Radeon HD 6450 1GB, Low-Profile 4GB DDR2 RAM, 667Mhz I am using Chameleon v2.2svn r2286 as built-in boot loader. Thanks in advance, Rico
  10. Boot with -v and show us the output
  11. 1. Download this kernel. It's a patched haswell kernel for 10.10.3. (I'm not on haswell, so can't promise that it'll work). 2. Place the kernel in your root directory of your OS X volume 3. Download the 10.10.3 combo update (or if you used Niresh' updater there's a backup install on your desktop. Open it). 4. Install the update. Boot with '/kernel'. 5. If your system boots, open terminal and write defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES 6. Go to /System/Library/Kernels/ and rename kernel to kernel.backup 7. Move the kernel out of your root directory to /System/Library/Kernels/ 8. Make the kernel hidden (e.g. with invisibliX) 9. open terminal and write defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles NO 10. Repair permissions Edit: just realized that you updated to 10.10.3 already. mv /System/Library/Kernels/kernel /System/Library/Kernels/kernel.backup cp /path/to/your/kernel/kernel /System/Library/Kernels/
  12. That's not much of a big deal, i've the same because OS X doesn't recognize the 8-core AMD processor. When I set my BIOS to use 4 cores instead of 8 my CPU is seen as a quadcore Xeon. I'm not quite sure what you mean. What I meant was to use your OS X in single user mode (bootflag -s). It will bring you to a terminal-like environment. From there you can backup all graphics kexts by entering 'grafix backup all'. That command deletes all graphics related kexts from /System/Library/Exsentions/ and places them in /Backup/Graphic Kexts/ (or something similar). If you're able to boot your system without using the bootflag -x, it'd mean that it is indeed a Graphics Kext problem. You should then only install the graphic kexts (out of your backup directory) needed for your graphics card.
  13. Enter single user mode (-s) and run 'grafix backup all', reboot and look if it boots up normal. If it does, manually install your graphics kexts from your /backup/graphics kexts/nvidia folder using kext wizard/utility. the reason why I think that you have problems with (from what I suspect a graphic) kexts, is because it boots fine in safe mode. Safe mode only boots the kexts that are necessary for the main OS X functions.
  14. Are you using a DSDT?
