  1. "Asus Sabertooth x58" running Mac OS Sierra with latest (4184) Clover bootloader following instructions here: Most everything important works, but I'm running into a problem when attempting to clone my startup disk using either disk utility or SuperDuper (they use the same underlying method anyway). Drives are internal SATA III SSD and correctly show on desktop with internal drive icons. The target disk keeps unmounting itself during the copy and I get the "disk not ejected properly" message. I've tried: - turning off "put disks to sleep" in energy saver settings - disabling spotlight on all disks, as some reported that as the problem ...but neither helps here. Any suggestions?
  2. Hi All, New to this forum but not to hackintosh. I recently got 10.9.5 working on my Lenovo D20 4158 2x Xeon X5650, 48GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 670, Samsung 840 Pro SSD, chameleon v2538 bootloader, no custom DSDT. So I bought my Dad an exactly identical configuration (also same BIOS version), with the exception of a GTX 660 graphics card and a Samsung 850 Pro SSD. Here's the problem: my Dad's computer is booting an SSD w/ fresh bootloader that I tested on my own computer first to make sure it worked. But, on his computer, I had some trouble getting it booted with some hangs after "PCI Configuration End". I resolved these errors by installing a new AppleACPIPlatform.kext. During the debug process, I was booting the SSD via an external USB to SATA enclosure. After I got everything working, I tried moving the SSD back into the Lenovo so I could use the Intel SATA ports (I also tried my RocketRAID 640L PCI card SATA ports)-- both of these SATA ports worked fine with this SSD on my Lenovo. However, I'm getting "Still waiting for root device..." when I use these SATA ports on my Dad's Lenovo. When I move the SSD back to the USB to SATA enclosure, it boots just fine. I've checked to make sure the SATA ports are working, and they are, as it boots into Windows (via another HD) just fine. Any ideas/suggestions?
