Ok, neil and minihack. I'll max up ram to 1.5 GB and wait for bleez's advice on installation of Leopard on cube.
I am using a 10.8 with a Unibeast install and then using the 10.8.2 combo updaate. With this system, I am not using a DSDT.aml file with ML. Why? As I recall when I updated and tried to use the same DSDT that I used for Lion, the system KP'd. Most everything works without one except the sleep and wake from sleep. Also the USB3 ports are problematic.
I am attaching a zipped system profile that you can see everything that is installed.
Ultrapatch - I will try to help. Go into the System Report via About the Mac and save a report to disk. It defaults to the /Documents. Either post the file in this thread as an attachment or PM me and attach it.Hi Neil,
I have the same motherboard (DH61AG - bios ver. 0043 - i3-2125) and I installed ML 10.8.2 via unibeast 1.5.3 and Multibeast 5.1.3 but I can't boot without Flash Drive plugged in........ please help me...
Bios has the UEFI boot enabled but there is no HPET option.
MultiBeast -->EasyBeast Installation and audio ALC892 without DSDT - network driver - Chimera 1.11.1 r1394 - System definition: MacMini.
Thanks in advance for your help
Hello NeilUltrapatch - I will try to help. Go into the System Report via About the Mac and save a report to disk. It defaults to the /Documents. Either post the file in this thread as an attachment or PM me and attach it.
Or up several post is a copy of my system report that you can compare.
The main thing that I see is that all of my ML installations are "OS X 10.8.2 (12C60)" while yours is "OS X 10.8.2 (12C54)" and different version numbers on several kexts. And the Kernel Version: Darwin 12.2.0 is the same on yours as mine. In summary nothing jumps out as being wrong.Hello Neil
Here my Mac Mini report.
Have a nice time.
P.S.: which Kernel do you use for this project?
here's my diskutil list; (what about your BIOS configuration? -- and org.chameleon.Boot.plist? I past mine.... is it the same of your MacMini? )The main thing that I see is that all of my ML installations are "OS X 10.8.2 (12C60)" while yours is "OS X 10.8.2 (12C54)" and different version numbers on several kexts.

This makes me wonder what your set up is on SSD/HDD. Please use the terminal app and do a "diskutil list" and copy the output to the posting (this is mine):
G4-Cube:~ neil$ diskutil list

And I am booting to the "aMac1" partition. And note that when you save the posting, the white space in the listing is removed so it will look compact as mine does.
TEST done, but no luck, my friend.ultrapatch - I do not understand why your system is not booting from the hard drive.
If this was my system, I would use a spare drive to hack around with as follows:
Partition the spare drive into several small partitions of 30GB (at least two partitions) so you can clone both ways.
I would download the latest ML package from the AppStore.
Use all the latest tools from TonyMacX86 (it appears that you already have them).
Install to the first partition and first boot the new installation using the USB installer. Run only Easybeast first time around.
Eject the USB and reboot to the hard drive... this is where you have a problem.
Then if the system still goes into black screen of death or KPs or just halts before reaching the desktop;
I would reboot using the USB installer.
Clone partition one to partition two using Superduper!.
Install Kext Wizard.app and ShowAllFiles.app and set show all files.
I would copy the /Extra (in total) from the USB installer to your root replacing your original /Extra directory.
And run KextWizard to repair permissions and rebuild caches.
Eject the USB installer and reboot.
This is the TEST... does it boot from the hard drive?
If yes then you can start removing things from the /Extra folder and rebooting until you find the key item that is causing the boot issue. (Note that the /Extra is unusual in that it contain a /Extensions sub directory that you will want to remove; however you may need to keep it for now and remove one kext at a time from it.)
If the system still does not boot... well I am out of ideas, and your are stuck with the USB device to boot.
And remember to clone your good progress to partition number 2 so you have a fall back.
Good luck and let me know if you try the above and how it turns out.
