Question Unable to boot completely, safe mode works - 10-12-2010, 08:27 PM


I hackintoshed my dell mini 9 using the dell efi method shown here: How to Install Mac OS X: DellEFI Method

It worked great for a while maybe 6 months. Now it wont boot. I did not update or change anything. I can boot to safemode by entering -x at the bootloader. I have tried running dellefi and removing and replacing the custom dsdt.ami file several times,,, Still no boot.

Any help would be appreciated. I can still boot to my xp since its a dualboot, but the osx wont boot only to safemode.

DellEFI is no longer supported. NetBookMaker and NetBookInstaller are now the supported methods.
