  • My installation went aokay, until I attempted to boot into OS X. I was able to get into Clover and I chose Mac OS X and it began to boot. It went to the gray Apple splash screen, waited for a few moments, then suddenly popped up a bunch of text over the gray splash with the first word being "panic" so I'm assuming this is a kernel panic. What can I do to fix this issue?

    My computer is an HP Envy TouchSmart m6-n012dx running on a i5-4200M CPU with Intel HD Integrated 4600 graphics. To load Niresh's installation, I used "xpcm-free". "hp -v" didn't let me load the installation. My computer also has use for UEFI which is the Clover version I selected to use and seems to be the only one that actually works.

    Can you help, please? Thank you.

  • Post the screenshot it will better to understand but make sure boot with "xpcm-free hp -v -x"

  • Here's a link to the picture of a screenshot (not sure how to upload the picture here)

    How would I add those boot flags prior to boot through Clover? I'd seen people do it through Chameleon, but whenever I tried an installation with Chameleon, the installation didn't like it and gave me an error.

  • Nevermind, I figured out how to use the boot flags. I used many different combinations of boot flags and still receiving kernel panics.
    The first I tried was with the stock boot flags added which is "npci=0x2000". This brings up the gray Apple splash then to a kernel panic like in the picture linked in my previous comment.
    I also tried booting with no boot flags which gained me that screen as well.
    The second I tried was "npci=0x2000 xpcm-free hp -v -x" which brought up this series of pictures
    Upon beginning the boot from Clover, they immediately went to this black screen but with gray lettering then to this screen which tells me that the kernel panic occurred after and not immediate.
    The next boot flag I used was just "xpcm-free hp -v -x" which also showed those same screens.
    I also tried just using "xpcm-free -v" and "hp -v" by themselves on separate boots which also got me those screens.
    To load into the installation of Niresh from Darwin, I used "xpcm-free -v" which allowed a smooth boot into the installation setup. Are there any other boot flags I can try or any other methods you can think of?

    Thanks for your reply and help in this. Much appreciated!

  • Well i have seen your screenshots according to this screenshot
    you have to boot with safe mode (-x) with basic kernel flag like "xpcm-free -v" because its Voodoo Error which always solve by booting safe mode*

    And that weird you got smooth boot into the installation setup by Drawin+Niresh but for me i have always go for Retail installation method Like Unibeast or Manual restore method

  • Hello,
    i have installed niresh mac os directly from my bootable usb pen drive , it was a success then after restarting my mac os it directly loads to windows 7 default os there is no option coming to load to mac os .If i want to load to mac os i have to plug in my bootable usb drive in to socket . Is there a way i can install a bootloader which allow me to choose between windows 7 & niresh mac os . Can you also tell me which bootloader support Intel core i3 processor and how to install it … Would kindly appreciate some help

  • First Boot your MAC OS from Niresh USB & download and install Chameleon Boot Loader you get it from this page
    Once you installed see the effect if problem is still exist then easy way to solve your issue is to use MyHack software (Run myFix)

  • Hello,
    First thing first thank u for quick response..
    Now coming back to point i have tried installing all chameleon boot loaders one after another with restart nothing happened my system boots directly boots in win 7 and i have tried my hack software as u suggested still no result from it again it loads to win 7. Then i tried to dual boot from win 7 through Easybcd software by adding mac boot loader option in add/delete entry in it… still nothing happened…Please suggest some other ways to install one single boot loader to boot both os…
    (FYI- when i checked in windows 7 disk management the partition where mac have installed is listed as primary only not as primary and active, so i have tried to make it active from command but there was error"Virtual disk service error .. the specified partition type is not valid for this operation " Does it affect dual boot loading ??)

  • Let me tell you one thing OS X NEED ACTIVE PRIMARY PARTITION Hackintosh Boot Loader won't works on Logical and Extended partition :O do one thing if you tried myHack with no result so i would suggest you to DELETE and CREATE New partitions for windows and mac (From MAC DISK UTILITY) then install Windows first then mac and try install Boot Loaders and see the effect

  • Hello,
    I as u suggested it i tried to install mac but after that there was error which was "boot0:error" so i repaired it with windows7 bootable cd by selecting startup repair option in it . After that again it started to boot in windows 7 ..

  • Why you restored windows 7 hmmmm ? if you want Dual Boot with Chameleon Boot loader then Boot0/Boot0 Done is the acceptable issue produce due to 4k sector drive and this issue is fixable 😮 see my Older guide on Boot0 fix

    Now do one thing boot OS X with mac os x installer media and install chameleon/chimera boot loader and restart, U must get Boot0 error again once u got it follow my guide ( Boot0 fix ) :O

  • Hello, i tried your solution no 2 but still was not able to remove boot0 error . If u can send me a video link would be very helpful as i followed every stepped but when i rebooted the system still boot0:error . Tried the step many times . At last also tried using multibeast and selecting only chimera from options of bootloaders still after rebooting boot0:error…

  • Anonymous

    Hi buddy, may I know how to enter the boot flag? What button I need to press? I'm having graphic issue post installation.

  • Well i'm actually thinking about to make video but still i want time which i don't have :O
    Do one thing download myHack and (Run myFix)
    perhaps u will get success if now see this video

  • Hello Pratik,
    lol i have tried the myhack thing before posting the new comment here .. forgot to mention it earlier and the link of video which u have given also tried it after my hack while surfing on google 😛 😀 .. anything if u want to recommend after that would be appreciable… 🙂

  • Boot your System with/without Installer,When Chameleon Screen appears then simply type Flag

  • @Kratik Oza Try Clover Boot loader and make sure install it on Fat 32 partition coz if u install it on HFS+ then perhaps you got Boot0af.error See my guide

  • Hi Pratik,
    I tried to install clover boot loader but as u said to install on Fat32 partition which i was unable to find so i had install it on default mac drive so as u said u will get boot0af error which i have got so i went tried ur method for removing it but problem is that after writing file to macdrive through terminal successfully i got the same error again after restart which was boot0af error. I think i am doing some mistake in terminal process as before when i writhed the file successfully for removing boot0 error i was unable to remove it after restarting now after successfully writing the boot1h file to remove boot0af file was unable to do so. The common thing in between them is i tried to write file from other pen drive other than my mac usb installation pen drive as in terminal when i was writing from my mac usb stick it said "no such file found(something like that line was there)"so i copy boot1h file to other pen drive and load it along side and successfully writhed that file to the disk.

  • That' s weird,
    If you successfully writes the Boot1h file on Install mac Directory the problem should not occurs again 🙁 Before I posted this guides i have tested on multiple Systems include Laptop's and Desktop's i always got success with little effort, Perhaps you making some mistake or skipping some steps which i posted on Articles OR may be thats your SATA Cables Fault why don't try changing the SATA Cables and give a try Else use ( SATA/PATA/IDE Drive to USB 2.0 Adapter Converter Cable
    with AC Power Adapter for 2.5 / 3.5 Inch Hard Drive / Optical Drive) which is the Last Solution

    Hey Pratik can you please give me direct download link for Niresh OSX-Mavericks? My ISP doesnot support torrent downloads.

  • I can't but you will find out if you search properly 😀

  • shelbi joseph

    Hello Pratik, I successfully installed Niresh distro 10.9 on my dell vostro core 2 duo, 4gb, nvidia graphic. But when it reboots it stucks at the apple grey screen with the wheel turning with no error. I can't pass to the pc set up windows, any idea or help will be appreciated. thanks

  • shelbi joseph
  • Boot with " -v " flag and post the screenshot here

  • I'm quite sure you did no select NullpowerCPUPowerManagement.kext while customizing your installations,I would suggest you to copy the following kext to your MAC Drive/System/Library/Extensions and add following strings to your Org.Chameleon.Boot.Plist which placed at MAC Drive/Extra/
    For doing all this steps you need working windows on same hard drive 😀

  • shelbi joseph

    Pratik, Can't access Mac HD from windows, obviously. I can access using ubuntu live cd. the plist is there.
    I can access the extension folder and of course there is no such kext. Pls. tell me how can or where can i have this two kexts?
    Can I manually create these kext if i find the code? thanks

  • shelbi joseph

    Pratik, instead of finding a solution to add the kext, I reinstalled Mac osx with GenerateC & P states marked, still no luck. Any other tips or tricks you can suggest? thanks

  • I think you haven't seen my this Guide
    Install paragon HFS+ software on windows then you will able to access mac partition 😀
    Download the files from here
    Simply unzip it and place to Mac drive/System/Library/Extensions and boot with "-v -x
    " those flags

  • You have to mark NullpowerCPUPowerManagement.Kext also while customizing installation like you did with Generate C & P states

  • shelbi joseph

    Pratik Bhaiya…installed paragon HFS and copied both fakesmc and null management kext to the folder, still no luck. Something I dont understand how to boot with -v -x flags when I dont have a terminal to do that. When I boot I have the mac grub to windows or Mac. The terminal boot option comes only when I install again. I had already marked Nullpower CPU. Any suggestions? Thanks

  • "SMC: successfully initialized" :-Download and replace the NullpowerCPUPowerManagent.Kext and FakeSMC.Kext to solve this issue.
    And if stuck at [ PCI configuration begin ] then npci=0x2000 / npci=0x3000 try this flags including amdfx or see here for flags
