  1. I'm having an issue where the installer boots, but the installer app itself won't load. There's no crash since I can still move around the mouse, but I see the loading icon so it's obviously trying to do something. This happens on both verbose and normal: I notice that the second to last line in the log is 'DSMOS has arrived', which I remember being a known issue. I'll try the fixes for this and report back. I have tried booting with nv_disable=1 and no-zp,both together and separately, but nothing has worked. Is there a workaround? I'm using the latest Yosemite image with a 32GB Corsair USB drive, used Transmac as per the instructions to image the drive. The target HDD has 1TB for Windows (my current Windows install resides on it), and ~800GB for OS X. CPU: Intel i5 4440 RAM: 8GB DDR3 2200MHz Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97P-D3 HDD: 2TB WD Green (plus a 120GB Samsung 850 Evo that will be used for Windows when it arrives tomorrow) GPU: Gigabyte GTX 960 Windforce 2 OC Edition
  2. I successfully installed Niresh's Mavericks on my PC, although I'm having to boot with npci=x2000 every time (I'll fix this). However, when I get to the part of the OS setup where it asks me if I want to restore from a Time Machine backup, the setup seems to crash and restarts from the beginning. I've seen many guides on the internet on how to trick the OS into thinking that we've already set-up the system, namely with `touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone`. However this requires `passwd ##`, and I get an error this time, with `The daemon encountered an error processing the request`, so obviously the `touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone` command cannot run. Two questions: Why is this setup loop happening? Why am I getting `The daemon encountered an error processing the request` when attempting to fix the first problem? Maybe some bug in Niresh's Mavericks? Specs: CPU: AMD FX4100 Quad Core @ 3.6GHZ RAM: 4GB DDR3 1066MHZ HDD (all SATA): 1x 128GB SSD, 1x 64GB SSD, 1x 640GB HDD, 1x 320GB HDD GPU: Integrated (for now; my previous AMD HD 7700 broke) Motherboard: Asrock N68C-GS FX [link: http://www.asrock.co...IA/N68C-GS FX/]
  3. I am getting one or both these errors on various hackintosh distros. I only seem to be getting the 'found 0 units' error on Niresh's distros, but the interesting thing is that this error only seems to happen once Niresh's Nivida chipset kext has loaded. I apologize for absence of a screenshot, but I lost the photo I took and I'm not near my PC right now to do it (at college). A rough console output of the last few lines, up to and including when the error occurs: Found 1 unit(s) Found 1 unit(s) Detected niVida chipset. Network on Intel [network controller model # here] down Network on Intel [network controller model # here] capable of 10/100 duplex Network on Intel [network controller model # here] connected at 100mb/s [Nivida chipset init. stuff here] System shutdown aborted Found 0 unit(s) Found 0 unit(s) Found 0 unit(s) Is there some way I can stop this Nivida kext from loading? The distro works fine in Virtualbox on the same PC. I tried a vanilla OS X Snow Leopard install DVD (original retail disk- not downloaded and bought from Amazon) with ModCD, and it worked, except that it reported this: [disk2os1] Disk read error. My system config: CPU: AMD FX4100 Quad Core @ 3.6GHZ RAM: 4GB DDR3 1066MHZ HDD (all SATA): 1x 128GB SSD, 1x 64GB SSD, 1x 640GB HDD, 1x 320GB HDD GPU: Integrated (for now; my previous AMD HD 7700 broke) Motherboard: Asrock N68C-GS FX [link: http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/N68C-GS%20FX/] I really want OS X on this PC so badly, I don't want Windows anymore and I want to change scope from gameserver development to iOS app development.. All help is appreciated..
