    Default [Hackintosh Support] Can't Boot OS X from Disk, but from CD

    Hey Guys

    I decided to put Mac OS X on my *old* Asus Notebook (2GB Ram, Intel Centrino M)...

    I installed the OS but when i try to boot from the disk it says: failed to boot the OS

    When i try to Boot from Disk, it works!

    what can i do? And the other thing is the internet. It doesnt recognise my Networkcard, what can i do?

    Thanks in advance

    Try a better explain;

    if you boot from HDD have fails?

    only boot using dvd?

    what processor and chipset model?

    yeah, sorry dude

    when i cange the bios boot configuration to "boot from CD/DVD" i do not have a problem. The OS starts from the DVD and i can work with it.

    But when i change the bios boot configuration to "Boot from Harddisc Drive" it says: Cant boot the OS. (Thats all)

    i will search the infos from my computer, it's just reinstalling mac os x.

    You don't have a bootload installed on HDD;

    Check in your prefeered OSX DVD if have a "bootloader" item to install.

    If you using a ToH DVD you need bootup OSX DVD and open a Terminal and type:

    Code:
    cd /
    cd usr
    cd misc
    sh script.sh (LEOPARD HDD NAME HERE)
    reboot
    If not ToH DVD, check install options for install a bootloader.

    Goodluck ,

    hey guys

    i had to reinstall my running mac os x toh version and just wanted to enable the bootloader via

    cd /
    cd usr/misc
    sh script.sh OSX

    but i had to realise that i have a usr folder, but there's no misc folder.
    its very strange because there used to be one.

    does anyone have an idea how i can boot from the HD, without the script.sh?

    thanks alot..

    doonot
