I don't usually use my hack for games, but I felt like playing Starcraft and it doesn't work. See screenshot. Build is in the signature; otherwise my graphics (and the machine) work just fine. Any ideas?
Data point: the first time I ran this post-game-install, it actually worked...
Okay, this is very interesting.
If I create the boot drive on the Ivy machine, then run multibeast with the mixed graphics patch, I CAN use it to boot the Sandy machine into safe mode with a -x flag.
What is weird is that once I boot once WITH the -x flag, I can then boot once or twice...
Almost identical rigs - one boots, one won't!
I’m an experienced Hackintosher, and have built several functioning rigs over the last ~7 years thanks to this forum. I have a problem with inconsistent (and occasionally non-existent) booting on a H77N-wifi with a Sandy Bridge cpu.
I have two...
And yet another update to help those who may bump into this in the future:
After using Unibeast to create a boot drive, I had to use PCRootUID=0 (remember, it's case sensitive) to get the new drive to boot for the first time. After that, I ran Multibeast with the standard options and...IT...
Update: I CAN boot using boot flag PCIRootUID=0.

What does that mean?

H77N-Wifi 3225 stuck at [IOBluetoothHCIController::setConfigState]
Relatively experienced hackintosher: this is my fourth or fifth build over the years.
I have two current rigs: the old one is a H77N-wifi with a 2025 cpu. The new is a H77N-wifi with a 3225 cpu. The old one runs like a charm...
Well, that isn't the issue. I got impatient and flashed back to F2...I still have the same problem. So it must be the chip, right? Even though I'm going to the *more* compatible chip. Argh.
Booting -v, I end up stuck at the following line:
I already have one perfectly fine hack rig with a H77n-wifi and a 2025 cpu (using the mixed graphics patch).
I am trying to make another rig with the same mobo using a 3225 cpu. But I can't make it work. The only important difference, I think, is the BIOS. The new board came with...
Finally got around to this. It worked. I wasn't able to find whatever the specific command within parted magic that you suggested. But I used Parted magic to write zeros and, ta-da, my install went correctly.
As usual, thanks to a great community.
SOLVED: Can install to HDD but not SSD
This is pretty weird.
I've been hackintoshing for 4 or 5 years now, though I remain just an educated "user" who doesn't understand too much what is going on under the hood. I have had three different builds working in the past but am now having trouble...
I have 10.6.8 working nearly flawlessly on my EP45 rig using the old Stellarolla lifehacker tools. So the main reason I want to find a DSDT is to install 10.7...has ANYONE found a DSDT that works for that purpose?
