  1. Problem dual booting in two different drives I want to say hello to all the members of the community and say thanks for your help!! I've installed Sierra and everything went good very easily, but I had a problem when I tried to make a dual boot with Windows 10. The problem is when I boot, in the boot manager I can see and choose 5 drives, the first is the drive with sierra, the second is with windows, then there are other 3 drives (with a windows flag) where nothing happen if I choose them. To me they are partitions made from windows automatically when I installed it. The os are in two different drives, a ssd drive with Sierra and a sata drive with windows. There is a way to delete from boot those option and have only the two with operative system? The machine is: i3 Skylake, Gigabite D3HP, 8gb ram, Samsung evo 830, Gigabite Gt 740, sata hdd Toshiba.
  2. After installation, when I try to boot Sierra Zone the pc reboot. Hello, after doing the installation (2 times) when I try to boot Mac OS via Clover it starts and shows a black screen with: OsxAptioFix2Drv: Starting overrides for \SystemLibrary\CoreServices\boot.efi Using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++. (The "+" appears one by one as a loading) And after that, the pc reboots and it starts (if I dont press any Fxx key) in Windows without the clover boot menu. I tried booting directly to MacOS but nothing, and tried choosing USB as 1st in the boot order and nothing again (when the pc reboot, it reboot in the Clover menu). I searched and I think Windows "repaired" the boot files, but I don't think that is why macOS don't . I tried with -x, PCIRootUID=0 andnpci=0x3000 and MountEFI=yes/diskX My PC: Windows 10 64bits Processor Intel® Core™ i7-4790 AMD Radeon R9 270 DDR3 16 GB 128 GB SSD | 1TB HDD (Sorry bad english) EDIT: With EasyUEFI I could place CLOVER as first boot option and when I starts the pc it goes to it . But Im with the same problem, appears that message when I try to boot macOS. EDIT2: I found something about RAM in internet and I exchanged RAM cards from DIMM2 and DIMM4 to DIMM1 and DIMM 3 (for dual channel) and still failing.

  4. [Guide] How to dual-boot Windows with OSX on a HP Pavilion DM4-1250ca (also preserves Windows data) This may work for other earlier DM4 laptops that have Arrandale 1st generation i3/i5/i7 CPUs too, that have graphical glitches upon entering the OSX installer. Working: * QE/CI (accelerated) Graphics * Sound * Microphone * USB ports * Ethernet * VGA * DVD Drive * Internal temperature monitors Not working: * Battery display * HDMI * SD card port Might work: * Mini PCI-E Wi-fi card (lost mine) Hardware requirements: * 8 GB USB Thumb drive or higher for the OSX Distro * 1 GB USB Thumb drive for MultiBeast * USB Mouse (only for part of setup) * USB Keyboard (same) * Ethernet connection Software requirements: Windows: * TransMac * ParagonHFS * MacPwn-generated distro of El Capitan * Files to make the distro MBR-installable (link in guide) * Working config.plist (link in guide) Mac: * Kext Wizard * Multibeast * Intel HD Graphics QE/CI drivers (link in guide) * Laptop keyboard / touchpad drivers (link in guide) * VoodooHDA 2.8.8 Now for the guide. 1. Go to the BIOS Advanced menu by pressing F10 and A at the same time repeatedly when you see the HP logo. The timing window for this is pretty small. From there, go to Advanced > Chipset Configuration, and disable VT-d. 2. In Windows, make sure there is enough free room to install OSX (at least 40GB.) 3. Get into an admin mode command prompt (for Win 10, right click the window icon and choose Command Prompt (Admin). 4. Type diskpart, then list disk, and then "select disk #", where 0 is the hard drive you want to install OSX on. 5. Type "list partition", and take note of the number. Then, type "create partition primary size=x id=af", where "size=x" is the size in megabytes you want your drive to be. "id=af" sets the partition to HFS+, so the OSX installer can see it, and so it won't need the whole drive to install OSX. 6. Type "select partition #", where # is one more than the number you noted, type "active", then "exit". 7. Type diskmgmt.msc, right-click the partition you made and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths". Give it a drive letter for later. 8. Download the latest MultiBeast on a spare thumb drive. 9. Get a MacPwn-generated distro of El Capitan, like one named "El Pwn Version.dmg" 10. Burn it to a thumbdrive with TransMac, by right-clicking the thumb drive and choosing "Restore with Disk Image". 11. Once the image is burned, then load the thumb drive up in TransMac, go to System/Library/Extensions/ and rename AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext to AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.old (right click to rename.) This allows the installer to be visible without graphical glitches. 12. You'll have to replace the thumb drive's /EFI/Clover/config.plist with the one attached . 13. Google "El Capitan MBR Patch" and follow the first link to make OSX MBR bootable (involves replacing two files on the drive.) 14. Boot to the distro with boot argument cpus=1 -v, then plug in the mouse and keyboard. You should be able to install the OS. 15. Keep the USB drive in, and don't load the distro you have just installed, since as soon as you get to the desktop, the screen will glitch out. Time to boot back to Windows and rename some files with ParagonHFS to fix that. 16. Once you're in Windows, install ParagonHFS (TransMac doesn't work for this, file permission issues) and open your OSX partition (not your thumb drive partition), go to System/Library/Extensions/, delete AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext and you should be able to boot properly to OSX, from the thumb drive's bootloader. 17. During the OSX setup, at the "How Do You Connect?" screen, choose "My computer does not connect to the Internet", we'll set up access later. 18. In the OSX desktop, run MultiBeast go to Drivers > Network, and choose RealtekRTL8111 v2.0.0, Misc > FakeSMC v6.18, FakeSMC Plugins, FakeSMC HWMonitor, NullCPUPowerManagement, and Bootloaders > Clover Legacy bootloader, then choose Build. This will enable ethernet, some internal temperature monitors, and install the Clover bootloader. Now, before you reboot, change your OSX drive's /EFI/Clover/config.plist with my working one attached, and copy the kexts from your installer thumb drive's /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/ folder into your OSX drive's empty /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/folder. 19. Download Kext Wizard and the kext for your laptop keyboard/touchpad at (google OSX Voodoo PS2 Controller, first hit). Be sure to follow the directions on this page. May want to copy org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.Daemon.plist and VoodooPS2Daemon to your desktop, then type "cd Desktop" in Terminal, for the command that copies them to the right places. Also may want to enable tap-click from Launchpad > System Preferences > Trackpad. 20. Before updating the video drivers, grab the El Capitan 10.11.6 update from the App store, which will require a reboot and cause your OSX desktop to be a glitchy screen again. Boot to Windows, go to the OSX drive's System/Library/Extensions/ folder, and delete AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext, AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGA.plugin, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver.bundle, and AppleIntelHDGraphicsVADriver.bundle, then boot back to OSX. 21. The proper, QE/CI-enabled video drivers can be found at (Google "1st generation intel hd graphics qe/ci", first hit). First, do a command-f search for, then grab that, then command-f search for "Watch", to be near the blue banner that reads "Enable Quartz Extreme with Core Image (QE/CI)". Scroll down a little further to "Intel HD Graphics QE/CI Download" link. Click through, download and open the 10.11.6 file. 22. Once open, move AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGA.plugin, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver.bundle and AppleIntelHDGraphicsVADriver.bundle to the desktop. Then, in the open Intel HD Graphics QECI 10.11.6 folder, go to Select Framebuffer > SingleLink > Normal > LCD+VGA > LCD+VGA LW1, then move AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext to the desktop. Now open and put Natit.kext on the desktop. Install the six files with Kext Wizard. 23. You may want to turn off Display sleep in System Preferences > Energy Saver, since sleep is broken, the display turns on without a backlight. 24. For audio, install VoodooHDA 2.8.8. I couldn't install it through MultiBeast so I downloaded it separately, works fine. You should have a smooth video experience now. The setup can handle 60 FPS Youtube videos nicely, but detailed 3d graphics are a bit much for its 288 MB of VRAM. Sorry about the lack of links, there's a spam filter. config.plist
  5. Hackintosh: Install El Capitan with Windows 10 in a specific partition I would like to install El Capitan OS in dual boot with my windows 10. Can I do it without format the HDD and then keeping my Windows, and creating only a partition where I will install El Capitan OS? Or I should format the whole HDD, losing my Recovery Partition? Thanks.
  6. Hey there. I decided to reinstall OS X Yosemite in dual boot with Windows 10. I installed it some time ago, but i deleted the partition, so i used just Windows. Now i installed it again (in dual boot, Windows it was first) and i was surprised to see some strange error "boot0 ss: error". I didn't find anywhere a solution. I've tried some guides about: Solve boot0 error. None of them worked. If you know what i have to do, please tell me :D. Oh, i tried to reinstall it many times, using different usb drives and another installation file (OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 and 10.10). Every time the same error. I can boot in Windows/OS X from USB Flash with no problem...Ok, just one. When i boot into OS X sometimes say: Error encountered while starting up the computer, pausing 5 seconds, but after that it boots normally.

    Dual Boot Clover configuration - Yosemite & Windows 8.1 on two hard drives (Gigabyte GA-Z97M-DH3 & Intel i5 4690 3,5GHz) Disclamer This guide was written only with the purpose to help those who, like me, want strictly to do a trial over the possibility of running OS X Yosemite and Windows 8.1 on a PC hardware configuration. The combination of specific hardware and software installation is merely temporary and exclusively for testing purposes. Moreover, this test is just part of a personal private research project. The procedure required a genuine Machintosh machine. Abstract For complete information about my hardware specific configuration and installation procedure for OS X Yosemite, as well as all the software tools used, please read my previous tutorial - Guide for Hackintosh Yosemite 10.10 installation using Unibeast and Clover (a hard way!). The present guide is an approach to Clover EFI configuration on a PC machine to boot successfully OS X Yosemite, as well as all configuration steps needed to dual boot Yosemite and Windows 8.1. For that purpose I used Clover configurator version 4.19.4.The working method used consisted in editing config.plist Clover configuration file using Clover Configurator software tool. Computer hardware Case: Aerocool Cube Ds White Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97M-DH3 Intel Z97 SK1150 Processor: Intel Haswell i5 4690 3,5GHz Memory: 2 x 4GB Kingston Hyper X Fury DDR3 1600MHz Graphics Card: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD7770 Ethernet: Realtek RTL8111 Audio: Realtek ALC892 Disks: Seagate SSHD 2,5” 500GB + Maxtor HD 1TB Clover configuration for successful booting of OS X Yosemite Clover ACPI Section Clover Boot Section Clover Disable Drivers Section Clover GUI Section In the other Clover Configurator sections, not shown on the pictures, there was no need of changing anything. However, please be aware that this was my case using the specific listed hardware assembling. Each case is a different case. That means the Clover profile configuration for successful booting is specific for each hardware configuration. So, users have to be able to think for themselves to choose the right Clover parameters for their specific hardware assembling. Showing only essential Clover configuration boot entries needed (OS X Yosemite & Windows 8.1) At the beginning I had six boot entries in my Clover boot menu, but I just needed at the most three. The third one is Yosemite HD recovery. After struggling a few hours, I can resume all the work in a few simple steps: Created two custom entries, one for Yosemite and the other one for Windows 8.1 in GUI section – picture #1 bellow; Navigated to the boot section of Clover Configurator and defined Yosemite as the default entry – picture #4 bellow; Hidden all the other useless three boot entries – picture #1 bellow. For the procedure of first step to work you need to go to the Tools, on Clover Configurator, and select Boot.log. After that, just press “Generate log” button on the right and you will be presented with something like you can see on the last picture of this guide (picture #5). The trouble is to look for the right strings for Yosemite and Windows 8.1 volumes. These strings are volume identifiers. When you found it, just Copy / Paste each string to the specific Volume field in the Custom Entries Editor pane, as you can see in pictures #2 and #3 bellow. To access Custom Entries Editor just click over the new custom entries icons. Don’t forget to specify the OS Type and Volume Type, or else the entry will not work. For the procedure on second step, copy the string corresponding to the default OS system you want to define and go to Boot section – picture #4 bellow. Don’t forget the Timeout field. It’s not critical, but the 5 seconds defined by default maybe too short if you choose to load the Windows OS system. At last, third step allows hiding unwanted entries. This was very hard to figure out. There was no way of hiding the unwanted Clover boot entries using the identifier volume strings. Don’t know why, but I executed almost all the options possible using the information in boot.log. Finally I understood that some entries related with Yosemite were stored in BOOTX64.efi located at EFIBoot. Still ended with four entries including an extra Windows useless entry. Even more hard, was to figure out that the useless Windows entry was stored in bootmgr.efi located at EFIMicrosoftBoot. Finally, complete success!!! Picture 1 Picture 2 Picture 3 Picture 4 Picture 5 Final Thoughts Initially it was impossible to load Windows from the Clover boot menu. I always ended with a black screen. Windows boots fine straight from the UEFI enter of the UEFI system boot menu. With Gigabyte motherboard I just have to press <F12> to access the machine system boot menu. I have to stress out that I have Windows and Yosemite installed in separate hard disks with GPT partition scheme. To avoid kernel panics at the beginning I had to keep integrated Intel graphic card enabled, along dedicated Sapphire AMD Radeon HD7770. Now, that annoying configuration isn’t needed anymore. Yosemite has native support for my AMD graphic card. So, it seems that, when trying to load Windows from Clover boot menu and at a certain point of the loading process, Windows doesn’t know which card to use to display the picture and simply freezes. I read the concerns of other users experiencing the same problem with dual booting Windows and Yosemite. So, in this particular situation, you just have to disable the integrated graphic card in UEFI / BIOS. GOOD LUCK!!!
  13. Hello guys, I am a litte confused. Everyone is saying that you should install os x first and windows afterward. I have got two partitions. On the first one win7 is installed and I don't want to use all my data. I want to install os x on my second partition. So do I just have to install os x and with the chameleon boot loader I can make my win7 partition choosable again when my laptop is booting? Thanks!!
  14. My situation is really strange. I installed Windows 8.1 and Mavericks in one hard disk drive with three partitions, one for each operating system and one just for storage purpose. Since my wireless network card (BCM943142HM) is not usable in OS X, I bought a USB Wifi Adapter (TP-LINK TL-WN725N) so that I could access internet. But when I use a lot of internet bandwidth (downloading torrents) the computer freezes completely. So I decided to work heavy internet use in Windows and just specific tasks on OS X. I’ve been using my computer in this way for almost 8 months without any additional issues. But recently I found somewhere that in order to stop the random freezes caused by the high internet’s bandwidth use, I had to disable Spotlight. So I did it, but the freezes continued. However I noticed that I could use the computer for a longer period of time before it froze again. So here is the problem. Yesterday, after some of this freezes I restarted the computer and now it beeps 8 times while booting indicating a display problem according to Dell, and the display shows up like this while booting and in Windows: But inside OS X the screen turns off. When I perform the display test according to Dell (holding down the D key and then pressing the Power button to turn on the computer) it shows solid colours indicating that the display panel is working correctly. Right now I’m using an external monitor connected to the HDMI port which is working correctly in both operating systems. Inside OS X it’s like there is no display panel connected to the graphics adapter, and in Windows it detects the display panel as a generic monitor. I’m really concerned about this. I know this is not a common problem, so I would appreciate any help!
