  1. Hello from Newbie with Boot0: Error on Existing Hackintosh Hi Guys. I am totally new here. My name is John and i'm from Bristol. Been playing around with Hackintoshes since OSX Lion. I'm no expert but have always managed to get by. I wondered if maybe one of u guys could help me out.... I've had Yosemite running now for about a year. The other day i think i might have deleted some files i shouldn't have. Now when i try to boot i get the dreaded Boot0: Error. I have found a few fixes for this problem but can't get any of them to work. Basically when i boot from the USB i get to the clover bootloader, then it doesnt matter whether i chose to boot from from the installed Yosemite or from the USB, i still get the same result. The black screen with the white apple logo... then the status bar starts moving.... when it gets to about half way and the monitor goes to sleep. The computer stays on but monitor goes off.... This is my system GRAPHICS: Asus Ati Radeon Hd6450 Silence 1 Gb Ddr3 FIREWIRE CARD: Syba 2 Port 1394B with 1 Port 1394A PCI-Express x1 Card with Low Profile Bracket CPU: Intel Core 2600K Sandy Bridge i7 3.5GHz MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 Z68 Socket 1155 7.1 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16 GB : 4 x 4 GB Memory - DIMM 240-pin - 1600 MHz ( PC3-12800 ) and here is where it stops in verbose mode just before the monitor goes to sleep. (See attached pic) Thanks in advance John PS. I have also tried doing a fresh install of El Capitan.... that does exactly the same thing!
  2. Hello J I am a bit of a noob at this so I hope somebody can help me out…. I have just installed Yosemite on my machine… The spec of which is listed below… It’s a multi-booting machine and I am also running Mavericks on one partition and Lion on another. I had a friend that helped me with these previous installations who really knew his stuff but unfortunately I am no longer in contact with him so I am on my own on this one. I used the latest version on unibeast to install Yosemite. Also have the most recent versions of Multibeast and Chimera bootloader. After a few ballaches I finally got Yosemite to boot using the guide on Tonymacx86 but there is a few issues that I am unable to resolve. Any help will be massively appreciated…. ISSUE 1 This is the main problem as my machine is used in a recording studio environment and at the moment I have no sound! I have a Firewire audio interface (focusrite Saffire Pro 14) which is working fine on both Mavericks and Lion. When I go to :About this mac/System report/Firewire it says Firewire Bus/SAFFIRE_PRO_14 so it is obviously seeing the firewire card… On the audio interface is a FW LED which should be lit, but it isn’t, and when I tried to install the software/drivers for the interface it says that there is no hardware connected and wont allow me to install it. ISSUE 2 The graphics card is working but has the generic drivers installed. When I go to “about this mac” it is showing the graphics card as “AMD Radeon HD 6xxx 1024 MB” but on my previous installs it is showing as “AMD Radeon HD 6450 1024 MB”. Do I need to install the drivers? If so, then when can I get them from as I appear to have lost them? DOH!! ISSUE 3 I cannot sign in to the app store… it says this computer could not be authenticated. I had this problem when I installed Mavericks and I used this guide to fix it: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/topic/19442-guide-get-icloud-app-store-and-imessage-working/ Was wondering if this will also work on Yosemite… ?? And one of thing which I thought was a bit weird… when I tried to grab something from the desktop of one of my other installs from Yosemite. It couldn’t see any of the files on the desktop?? Well that’s about it I think… Thanks in advance for any help… much appreciated J John GRAPHICS: Asus Ati Radeon Hd6450 Silence 1 Gb Ddr3 FIREWIRE CARD: Syba 2 Port 1394B with 1 Port 1394A PCI-Express x1 Card with Low Profile Bracket CPU: Intel Core 2600K Sandy Bridge i7 3.5GHz MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3-B3 Z68 Socket 1155 7.1 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16 GB : 4 x 4 GB Memory - DIMM 240-pin - 1600 MHz ( PC3-12800 )
