  1. Doesn't boot anymore?? Something broken?

    Anyone? I feel on my own here and I am not the expert...
  2. Doesn't boot anymore?? Something broken?

    I can understand it's busy here, but still a bit disappointed that nobody could point me in the right direction today, after hours and hours of browsing the web, I found the problem maker! http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/295332-weird-problem-with-chameleonchimera-bootloaders-not-loading/ On page two, the person with a similar problem disconnected other discs then the boot disk and then started to connect his other discs one by one and it proved to be the Time Machine© disc. I disconnected my Time Machine© disc and indeed, it started up again. I only don't understand why I worked OK this morning. Did Time Machine more then just make a backup of my installation disc? in my iStat menu's at unmounted discs I saw before with unmounted discs; 2 "EFI discs", but now just one left, and I really have no idea what these are... See my picture: When I used my Time Machine© disc, there were two of these! Now how do I use my Time Machine© disc again, except using the Scan Single Drive flag, as I want to be able to use the boot loader to pick the right disc. Someone said: Diskutil complains the disk has lost its EFI partition. Why would my disc need such a partition? And how do I put that back, if I can figure out to start my computer with this disc attached anyway?
  3. Doesn't boot anymore?? Something broken?

    Anyone? Strangest is, it happens to all 3 boots, 2 installed on my 2 separate discs, and the Niresh installer, that cant be a coincedence!
  4. This morning used the Hackintosh for about 30 minutes, and shut off, totally normal, nothing different. After coming home this afternoon, it went to: Boot:0 GPT Boot:0 Done And then stopped at "|" with a cursor blinking under it. (usually goes to Niresh boot menu) After several tries, sometimes "" with cursor blinking. I have another Niresh bootsector on a different drive, but it does exactly the same. Even my install USB disk does the same. I can't find anything changed in the BIOS. I tried to start from a Linux boot cd (external USB DVD burner), but that looked like it couldn't read the cd all of a sudden. I could only boot from grub to a Linux disk. I'm quite in a panic, as this is my WORK DESKTOP! It worked pretty well for several weeks! (See my former review) with a few minor probs... I managed to get into Clover through pressing "3" during boot, but that does not start a installation, not my main, nor my backup. Just a black screen. Help! Posting from a sluggish Netbook on Linux...
  5. Used to run 10.8.2. on MSI P55-GD65 main board and GeForce GTX 275 896 MB (dual DVI out) pretty perfectly, only the USB 3.0 card stopped working after a while. I did just the upgrade from 10.8.2. to Niresh 10.9.5. and sleep worked perfectly. I also saw my USB 3.0 card worked again! One of the first problems I had though, was that I had to disconnect my second DVI cable ( GeForce GTX 275 896 MB) which runs to my HDMI receiver in the living room, as after a while the picture decided to blow up in size, but narrow it's widths and become unsharp. When I checked the monitor, it is still 1680x1050. After unplugging the second cable and log out, log in, all is normal. Then I got a nag screen by Little Snitch and decided to remove LS according to its uninstaller! (rebuilding this and that) I wish I never did that! My BIOS was reset(!!) and I had to figure out how all the settings were, before I could start up again. To my great shagrin, my sleep did not work anymore. Stil haven't found out, how to fix that, as adding "sleep enabler.kext" was no solution. :-( Another problem I encountered, is that I cannot move video files to my Samsung D3 station using USB 3.0. All other files seems to work without problem. Using the command line in Terminal, did remove my mouse pointer and froze the whole system, had to do hard reset! The same disk under USB 2.0 did not cause problems though with moving video files (although way slower). Is it the Samsung disk, is it the kext, or just incompatible hardware ( Samsung interface or my USB card with NEC chip) Would be great if I had these 3 problems solved, for the rest I quite like the--for the rest--worry free install.

    Quite happy with just the upgrade from 10.8.2. to Niresh 10.9.5. Even my sleep worked as it did before!
