Capture Hackintosh drive image?



  • Hello,

    I have been trying to capture the Hackintosh drive on my laptop but it fails every time. I have tried setting the image to Apple Mac Os and Other.

    The method I use for Hackintosh is Clover Boot loader which resides in a fat32 EFI partition along with the 3rd party kernel extensions etc etc and the other partition is HFS Plus with the OS on it.

    Is there some additional information I could provide that could make this happen? It is probably just a small tweak.

    Thanks

    So I would just put something like “/dev/sdx”?

    Exactly! First disk usually ends up to be /dev/sda, second /dev/sdb and so on.

    Hello,

    They are on separate SSDs. Windows 10 on it’s own SSD with its own EFI etc etc. And mac OS on its own SSD with it’s own EFI etc etc.

    Oh damn, how could I have missed Host Primary Disk in the settings. So I would just put something like “/dev/sdx”?

    I am not sure how to tell FOG which drive to capture.

    I am not sure but sounds a bit like you use the term “drive” as in Windows C: drive - actually being a partition not a whole drive/disk. I just want to make sure we are talking about the same things here. In the host’s settings you can specify Host Primary Disk if you have a host with several physical distinct hard drives and want to capture/deploy to a specific one. But I think this is not what you are asking about.

    In the pictures posted we see the error message “Invalid operating system id: … (validResizeOS)” - the message might not be intuitive. What it means is that FOG cannot capture Apple HFSplus in re-sizable mode! Just switch over to non-resizable image type to get past this.



  • Hello @Sebastian-Roth ,

    The Fog dashboard indicates “Your version of FOG is up to date.
    You’re running the latest stable version: 1.5.7” I am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS server with all updates.

    This may sound dumb but I am not sure how to tell FOG which drive to capture. If I create a new “Windows 10 image, Single Disk Re-sizable, Everything” in FOG, then set my laptop host to capture it it will capture the Windows 10 drive.

    If I create a new “Apple Mac OS image, Single Disk Re-sizable, Everything” in FOG, then set my laptop host to capture it it will give this error

    If I create a new “Other image, Single Disk Re sizable, Everything” in FOG, then set my laptop host to capture it it will give this error

    /dev/sda is the Windows 10 drive. I don’t know how to have it capture the other one

    Thank you

    @Fog_Newb Well it would be very helpful to know the exact error message you get. Take a picture of the screen and post here. As well you might tell us which version of FOG you currently run.
