Re: X220 Hackintosh (lion) on MBR partition dual boot Windows 7

so i guess i accidentally unsubscribed from this thread... I have just given up on the hackintosh idea and gone with my VMware image that is pretty good. I have acquired a wireless keyboard and trackpad and it works GREAT with the VM OSX but as soon as it switches back to the PC side it doesnt work....

Re: X220 Hackintosh (lion) on MBR partition dual boot Windows 7

When I try to boot off my flash drive that has OSX on it. It just refreshes back to the bios boot device page. Any suggestions? you have to be sure to set the disk to MBR on both the USB and the HDD when installing OSX. This is done with disk utility, before format click options, there you will see...

Re: X220 Hackintosh (lion) on MBR partition dual boot Windows 7

I understand that I have to install Chameleon on the flash drive but why do I have to install it on my Mac? When I'm installing osx on my x220? Sorry trying to understand! Chameleon is the boot loader that allows you to boot into the OS. Otherwise there is nothing to point BIOS to your OS. also com...

Re: X220 Hackintosh (lion) on MBR partition dual boot Windows 7

Hi Paul, the center of the screen is blocked by the "five language error". Can you boot with "-v" and re-take the picture? But from what I can see, I guess it it because of AppleIntelpupowermanagement.kext. The easiest way to bypass this is to put NullCpupowermanagement.kext (can be found from Extr...

Re: X220 Hackintosh (lion) on MBR partition dual boot Windows 7

finally read line
1) audio: remove “Device (HDA)” so that you do not need to remove AppleHDA.kext from /S/L/E to avoid kernel panic.
and went and removed applehda from /S/L/E
but forgot to copy extra folder and remove DSDT...
so KP'd again....
GAAAAAA
back to reinstall
