    kernal panic and boot0 issues


    Hello,

    I am looking for help with my Hackintosh, I followed the instruction with these guides:

    [Guide] MultiBooting for the novice. Updated 3/12 see log
    How to Build a Hackintosh Mac and Install OS X in Eight Easy Steps
    tonymacx86 Blog: iBoot + MultiBeast: Install Mac OS X on any Intel-based PC

    and have run into issues. First during the OS installation the system froze up and had to be restarted. When I went to reboot with iBoot the OS option showed up and displayed the "Kernal Panic" screen. I rebooted again and then the OS seemed to run with no issues. I used Multibeast and Update helper to get myself to 10.6.8 and then rebooted the computer and It gave me he boot0 errors.

    I am using a Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3, a Seagate Barracuda 1T harddrive (one for Mac one for Windows) and Intel i7 2600 I have been trying to read the
    tonymacx86 Forum • View topic - boot0 Error: The Official Guide post for solutions but most of them have to do with Lion OS.

    If anyone knows an easy way to fix this issue please let me know. -Much Thanks-

    when you get to the OSX disk utility did you set the partion on the hard drive as one - or did you never get that far-
    as you know most large hard drives like your 1TB Seagate have 4k sectors and this is the issue wBootO and Boot1h

    You could also try a live Linux CD and great the two partitions w that OS.

    The methods that are used by LION are compatable w OSX as we are dealing with the Boot loader not the mac osx.

    I suggest that you invetigate if this seagate has a utility to change the advaced format (on/off) - call tech support.

    And / or try it with partions for two 512 MB drives for the mac os.

    Of if you have a single older 500 mb HD use that to solve the problem - Windows need lots of space for its Junk in the trunk
    but OSX is rather trim at the brim! So OSX don't need all that space.
    Here is another read about what you are trying to accomplish - I suggest you look at how he got in installed!
    http://nofilmschool.com/build-a-hackintosh/
    also some other notes I have.
    If you are unfamiliar w the internal workings of the Mackintosh world, I found the following websites and videos very be helpful.

    But before you do this please look for some YOUtube vids under the name deanwrayUK
    of these shortcuts.

    Yeah I did get up to the Disk Utility part, I actually got up to installing the actual OS and thats where the install froze on me and might have messed things up.
    I dont know much about programing so I'm going into this blind for the most part. I appreciate all the links you provided and will look over them when I have a bit more time, I am going to just try and pick up where I left off for now and reinstall the Mac OS onto the 1T harddrive. If that fails I will gladly look at the information you have provided, also I don't have any older harddrives I bought everything new just for this build I got 1T for each individual OS because of how much Digital work I do and all the games I play on both OS systems. Once again thanks for the response ill let you know how it goes.

    atomictoyrobot:

    Yea I know what I tossed at you was a lot of stuff
    But before you start anything read the one link to the filmschool
    http://nofilmschool.com/build-a-hackintosh/
    as this discuss his ways of doing his install - using different methods.
    We can only speak of the TonyMacx86 method in the forum so if you
    seek a different path we are not permitted to assist or post - forum rules.
