"Installed BCM7522D (kext wizard) to S/L/E:
http://www.osx86.net/view/3074-bcm5722d.kext.html for network card"

This kext enables ethernet to work.

Your problem may have nothing to do with this kext. What graphics card are you using? The onboard one? The graphics card may be your problem as I see nothing wrong with your verbose boot. Try getting a hackintosh compatible graphics card (see the buyer's guide).

I had this problem with mavericks on my 745 and I ultimately had to go to mountain lion. Some others got theirs working though. Your issue is likely 'still waiting for root device' error

i fix it by using EvOreboot

but i always get error with installation




always get error with osinstall.pkg essentials.pkg
I have had this error happen in different circumstances.

Make sure that the date and time are set correctly in BIOS before running the install and that your CMOS battery is in good condition. If the date and time are off, it won't install.

Hi again. Got my 745 finally working with ML. But i have a problem. When i start the computer, it's all pixelated and blurry. Even the bootloader screen is so (chameleon). What is wrong? Tried to adjust screen settings without luck. When i boot from the usbstick it's normal. Have tried to install other bootloaders, but i seem like they do not get installed, still have chameleon.

Hi, it seems nice but I've one question. How did you add support for AHCI though the Dell 745 doesn't support it? I always stuck at boot screen with (waiting for root device) error. Also suggest me, Nvidia GT630 or Quadro 2000 will work with it? Please let me know. Thanks

I'm always stuck at the installation screen too, as neither the installer nor the disk utility is finding my drive that I want to install to. In my BIOS for the drives, I have "normal" and "legacy". Which one do I need to select in order for disk utility to be able to find it?
