    Problems with Upgrade from SL to Mavs. USB-HDD hangs during boot up

    Thank you. I'm still not able to upgrade my system, so I WILL check this out. I've been working on this every day for about 2 weeks now & am no closer than when I started (if that is even possible). Something has to help PRETTY soon. I greatly appreciate you trying to help. Good luck with YOUR...

    Problems with Upgrade from SL to Mavs. USB-HDD hangs during boot up

    Thank you for taking the time to try helping. Setting GraphicsEnabler=Yes didn't help, but I REALLY appreciate the support. If you (or anyone for that matter) have any more suggestions, I'll try them. I'm pretty sure I did already try setting that bootflag before, but trying it more than once...

    Problems with Upgrade from SL to Mavs. USB-HDD hangs during boot up

    Gladly. Wow, it looks like we have almost the exact same system specs in fact. That must be where the answer is. I've done MANY searches on this site & on the Internet in general. I've had many years of UNIX & Linux experience (although it has been several years since I've used them now) too, so...

    Problems with Upgrade from SL to Mavs. USB-HDD hangs during boot up

    OOOooops. Sorry. I WAS upgrading my OS, so I pulled everything to change my info to include the new OS. It was in the post I started when I started this XXXXing upgrade 3 days ago. Thank you for reminding me. I was told that I should also have additional info about my CPU too, but wasn't told...

    Problems with Upgrade from SL to Mavs. USB-HDD hangs during boot up

    I have done my very best to follow the instructions carefully to build a bootable USB drive so that I can upgrade my Snow Leopard system to Mavericks. I have a 10.6.8 system. I have downloaded "Install OS X Mavericks" from the App Store. The .app file is in /Applications. The USB drive is...

    Advice & assistance with upgrading from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1 please?

    Thank you. I've been fiddling with this USB boot problem all day. I will go to the other forum & ask a question about this problem there.

    Advice & assistance with upgrading from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1 please?

    Thanks. I looked around on this site & found that most people solved their "boot1 : error" problem by using a different USB drive, so I did the same. I used a USB3 drive (I have 2 USB 3 ports on my Gigabyte Motherboard, so...) & it installed UniBeast in 11 minutes. 4 times faster than my...

    Advice & assistance with upgrading from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1 please?

    OK. Even though I said I'd be back, I didn't think I'd be back in a few minutes, but here I am. I'm trying to boot the USB drive & am getting a "Boot1 error". Which I'm guessing means it can't boot to my USB drive. I'm doing some searches here to see if I can find more info, but I thought I...

    Advice & assistance with upgrading from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1 please?

    Again, MANY THANKS for your help. Sorry if I got carried away with the disc clone thing. I've used MANY posts from this forum to help solve all sorts of problems & get ideas that have helped me a LOT, so I try to post anything that I actually have knowledge of (not just a theory on), in case...

    Advice & assistance with upgrading from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1 please?

    Again, first & foremost THANK YOU for replying & your help. I followed your link to the disc cloning post you provided & added a few things, some of which I will share here. As a fairly long time UNIX/LINUX guy, I'm pretty sure the reason that the software that does a "Clone" while the OS is...

    Does Carbon Copy Cloner Really Make a "Bootable" Hackintosh HD?

    Great idea. Here are a couple of other apps that I've used that work great too... As a long time engineer with a few years of disc cloning experience, UNIX experience & as a user on the tonymacx86 site, I have to say that "technically" if you're not getting the boot block you're not actually...

    Advice & assistance with upgrading from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1 please?

    Thank you for this info. I have cloned my drive. I used Clonezilla. I don't understand your statement that I'll need to install a Boot Loader on the cloned drive. If I have to do something else to a cloned drive to make it bootable, then it's not really cloned or the drive that I used to clone...

    Advice & assistance with upgrading from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1 please?

    I built my system (with help from several people on this site) a couple of years ago. Of course, the week after I bought Snow Leopard from Apple, they put out a new OS & I decided at that time it was going to be a LONG time before I would update/upgrade my version of OSX so I couldn't get...

    Simplest Mac OS X Installation Guide

    Thanks for this MacMan! Of course, this works great (if used correctly). I've use this post to make my Snow Leopard installation work too. This looks like a lot of stuff, but the whole process only takes about 2 hours. 3 if you include putting the parts together to build your system. Here's...

    boot0 Error: The Official Guide

    Thanks for this. How do I get a USB stick with SL on it or can I use the Lion USB stick? Since this is such a widespread problem now, is there ANY way that somebody would be willing/able to add the SL boot1h file to the "Download" section? It seems like that would be a HUGE help to people with...

    boot0 Error: The Official Guide

    First: Do I understand this correctly in that this will happen to ALL installations on the new drives now? Second: Would it be possible for somebody to explain how I could make a Snow Leopard installation work correctly? I've looked & looked at the explanations in this thread & I just can't...

    ATI Radeon hd 5450

    Sorry to just butt right in, but ... I'm just gonna. I have my ATI Radeon HD 5450 working, but 1900x1080 comes in about 20% off the screen, so I have to use the next lowest graphics setting. I was hoping to try the "ATI5000Injector.kext" file to see if that would "fix" things, but it didn't...

    GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 upgrad fail

    So, you're saying that the "GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3" is a Sandy Bridge? isn't it a "Z" chipset? UR sure it's a Sandy bridge? How does one know or how can one tell when they have a Sandy Bridge?

    Re: PLEASE HELP! SL reboots about 70% into Installation

    I'd be happy to... First, come down from the ledge. Don't jump! :idea: We can fix this. I read an article by (I think) TonyMacx86 dude himself, saying that if your first attempt at a build doesn't succeed don't get discouraged, just keep working at at. That gave me a bit of inspiration to...
