    If you are not able to boot, it is most likely because you have set for hard disk emulation in bios. Try to set USB device emulation to floppy or something similar.

    I also get the BootStart and BootError errors. I have an Asus A8N-SLI mobo with Award Bios. In Bios my Kingston USB stick shows as a hard disk. But I could not find how to change its emulation.
    Has anyone succeeded with mobo having Award bios?

    1. USB bootable disk cannot boot on some PCs because different BIOS may have
    different implementation for USB boot.

    Great news, netkas!
    Congratulations! You've done quite some work, really!

    You can boot from a CD by booting from a ramdisk, from my own personal experience, I used to do this, I even fooled a regular XP into *starting to boot* an unmodified XP install, so it should work here, too.

    The right thing to do would be to write an efi driver for the hardware decryption.
    It can be ripped the same way a USB dongle protection device is ripped, by "capturing" the data which was transmitted and then replaying it when required
    (the OS calls the hardware....the emulation driver responds with the required info, etc, I guess that's how it should basically work).

    One more thing, how could we make it more like the mac efi firmware?
    As in be able to detect the partition, boot from an optical unit, etc.
    Having it set up to boot from a Linux loader or Windows NTLDR without having to enter those commands would also be great.

    I might have sounded quite rude with my previous requests/ideas, their purpose was a constructive one. Please, don't hesitate and talk to me for testing or anything else.

    It should be no problem to put the efi part on a floppy image and put that on a cd and it will autoboot. Suggestion is that you add hfsplus.efi to the .fv file so it autoloads, and you could essentially put the boot.efi to the efi/boot/ on the hfs drive

    I tried to do it just as I said in my previous post (trying to boot it from a cd with hdd emulation). It didn't work (BootStart).

    So, netkas said he did manage to get it to boot from a cd, that's great. Now, we need to get it to boot from a different bootloader, from ntldr, from LILO/GRUB, etc.

    I think we need to focus on getting it to run an unmodified OS X and that means we need good workarounds for all of the problems: the decryption, the crc check and what else might be needed. The thing is that it has to be OS modification independent, so that you can run all future versions on it without having to worry for anything. This guarantees that we have a proper MAC EFI kit which will run future OS X revisions.
