OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion bootable USB

Recommended Posts


Great guide!

After the installition, I tried boot the drive, but I'm getting stuck.

Attach the picture of chameleon output.

What's the matter?


I am having the some problem, Installation went fine but first boot always freezes here. The thing is I am able to boot when I update from 10.7.3, but not when I do a clean install.

BTW thanks for this, you are a genius, I've been trying to get ML on my machine for a while now and so far this is the only one thats has worked.

Thanks for reply, I have just now managed to get it working! Using my MacBook Pro, I connected the ML drive and installed the null and fake kext, then run Chameleon Wizard to sort out the other bits. I did get problems with video but I resolved that, it's a bit glitchy and I'm back to using cpus=1 but overall it's good. Thanks very much for putting this together, much appreciated. :D

Hi all!!

After trying and trying, I finally decided to reinstall ML formatting the HD.

Now my Disk Utility recognize my SSD, and I can perfectly use it.

After installing all the kext and making the App Store/iCloud working (that was hard), I'm now stuck with the chameleon part. I still need my USB installer to boot ML, but I will post it on the "boot0:error" topic.

Thank you all for your work!

sorry but would you please tell me how to patch kext. i have never done this before. :oops:

i've searched also a lot for this but i can't get through it..

If you can get in the system with the boot flags, just double click the patcher script, it will ask your admin password.


When installing kexts using the Kext Wizard, where should you install them to? The extra folder or System/Library/Extentions ?

Whats the difference between the two?

Is there anything else you need to do after clicking on install? just reboot?

Always /S/L/E, kexts in /E/E won't be loaded if you use kernelcache (which is recommended) and kexts with dependencies won't work from Extra.

For some reason now, the kext wizard is not able to find the target drives. it cant find the mac drive nor the usb drive to install the kexts to.

The first time i loaded it up it was able to detect the mac and the usb drive. but now it cant.

im also not able to see the mac drive in Finder. I can see all my other drives and the usb drive there.

any ideas?

You need at least one free partition, use Disk Utility (in the Utilities menu) to erase it as Mac Os Extended (Journaled).

If you want to install Chameleon (the boot loader) in this partition and you use MBR (not GUID, like if you already have Windows in the HD), it must be a primary (not extended/logical) partition.

Hello, I have the following computer:

ASUS P8H67-M LE(B3), H67, Socket 1155, DDR3, mATX

Intel Core i3-2120, 3.30ГГц, 3МБ, LGA1155, BOX

DDR3, 8ГБ (2x4ГБ), PC3-10600, 1333

Unfortunately, I run in to a similar problem every time I try to boot:


using 64-bit bootcache playlist
BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory
USBF: 8.721 AppleUSBEHCI[0xffffff801177b000]::Found  transaction which hasn't moved in 5 seconds on bus 0x1d, timing out! (Addr: 7, EP: 0)
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out


I haven't tried deleting any kex's yet. Which ones should I try?
