    Lightbulb [How To] Get out of "Already own a Mac" Loop (on iDeneb).

    I was installing iDeneb on to my Gateway Netbook LT2005u and I got the "Do you already own a Mac?" question, which gets stuck then loops back to the beginning again.

    Here's Solution 1:

    At Darwin boot "Press any key for startup options", press spacebar then,
    Type in: -s -v

    Comes to ":/ root# " prompt, then type in:

    /sbin/fsck -fy
    /sbin/mount -uw /


    Afterwards type in:

    touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

    The next prompt, type in:

    passwd root

    So now type in your password as it asks you, and your username will be

    root

    then type at the prompt: exit to boot into iDeneb or whatever distro that is "keeping you in the loop"


    Here's Solution 2 (I have not tried this but suggested by others):

    During customization, do not install any ethernet drivers, and keep the ethernet wire plugged (preferred), or other cases plugged.

    I installed wireless Atheros drivers for the wireless, and this is pretty much why I got stuck at "Do you already own a Mac?" choosing the last question, pressing continue, and then getting stucked then looped.

    Other solutions are welcomed!

    Everything before the line: Afterwards type in:
    can also be used if you want to recover from a bad wireless kext install.

    Then the main commands you need to type are: mv (move) and ls | less (list the directory (kext directory) with pausing and able to scroll).

    Default your not alone.

    I tried the funky code stuff at the advanced boot options and every time I get to passwd root it states that the command is not recognized.
    any ideas? because I am also stuff at the same spot on my Asus Eee 1005HAB.
    Also I did install the Atheros wireless driver, so do I need to reinstall with out? or try the plugged in Ethernet (no Ethernet drivers either)?

    Default

    You need to install without the drivers. But better, you need to switch out that Atheros card with a compatible broadcom card such as the Dell 1397.
