Failed to Load SMC DRIVER on boot after install

Recommended Posts

Did you boot using the USB installer?


You need FakeSMC (at minimum) to be able to boot from HD http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1627


Maybe you need to move video kext (GeForce) from /S/L/E in first boot. You can move it back after inserting your card ID in NVDAGF100Hal and NVDAResman http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=154

How are you booting the HD after install? USB? Boot CD? Already had Chameleon in the HD?


From the picture I see 2 problems, missing FakeSMC and graphics mode do not start.

Hard drive is fresh install, no Chameleoon on HD yet, but i have tried Boot cd, and usb.. also used a chameleon USB boot also

same results hangs at this point..., also doesnt the OS_X_10.8_Mountain_Lion_bootable_USB_for_Intel_PCs include the FakeSMC..

I really have no idea, you should at least see "DSMOS has arrived" and not "failed to locate SMC driver".


Try moving video kexts, boot with -s and run

fsck -fy
mount -uw /
mkdir /kext_backup
mv /System/Library/Extensions/GeForce* /kext_backup
mv /System/Library/Extensions/NVDA* /kext_backup
reboot

Then boot with GraphicsEnabler=No -f

Delete your smbios.plist in Extra folder,this is problem for SMC.kext/

And boot without smbios.plist :shock:

 

well it booted after i deleted the GEFORCE.kext file.. but now how do i find the kext to work with my asus gt520 video card

Insert your card ID into Info.plist of NVDAGF100Hal and NVDAResman

                        <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key>
                       <string>0x104010de</string>

then re-install GeForce.kext
