Boot Camp for Hackintoshes

Modbin has came up with a solution (that is bypassing certain Boot ROM checks on Apple’s Boot Camp Software) to get Boot Camp to work on Hackintoshes. I’ve tested it out and personally it works as in creating partition and then installing Windows normally via DVD. Before we get on our hands on Boot Camp. I’ve to state few things , that you should take note :-

  • It only works on GUID Partition Scheme (if you have used MBR , it would not work)
  • It will erase your 200MB Hidden EFI partition (so you’ll have to back up your patched kext , dsdt and stuff like that)
  • Its either a hit or miss (sometimes it can work)
  • There is a chance of making your Macintosh HD corrupt (there is a chance)

Just to let you know that Boot Camp software is just a “front end” for Disk Utility to make it easier for you to partition your drive so that you can install windows. Anyhow lets get started. I’ve already warned that once you start playing with this there is a chance that it will mess your boot loader , so make sure you do know how to recover. Here’s a hint , get a USB stick and install Conti’s myHack installer.

Note : This is just meant for experimental purposes only , just to show that it can be done. Its not meant for production , use. Its just to push how far human brains can go and its meant for educational purpose
Step 1 – Download patched Boot Camp Assistant from here or here for the newly released 64-bit/32-bit version (New Mirror – Thanks Frank A)
Step 2 – Replace (Do make backup of the original Boot Camp) Boot Camp Assistant which is located in /Applications/Utilities . Now right click , select Get Info and put a check on Run as 32-bit program. For 32-bit systems , you don’t have to put this check. This is needed because modbin only patched it for 32-bit.

Boot Camp Assistant Get Info Screen
Boot Camp Assistant Get Info Screen - Do put a check on run it as 32-bit program otherwise it will not work

Now just double click and start the process. Β Select continue and then Create a new partition as shown below

Select Create a partition

3. Select your Macintosh HD (or your Hackintosh partition) and allocate it on how you want it to be.

Your call on how big on how you want your windows partition to be

4. Go grab a coffee and just wait. Go do something. Talk with your girlfriend/boyfriend , go out , go make some sandwiches and pamper yourself. It can take for a while

Bah stop staring at it - Just go out and enjoy the great outdoors

Okay beyond this part. If you can make. You may simply reboot and insert your windows cd and boot from CD and then install Windows. Once done , simply use your myHack USB disk and boot to your Snow Leopard partition and re-do your EFI Partition. i am not going to do this advance . I am not going to explain much in details about it . I hope you can check it out for yourself πŸ˜›
P.S – Modbin , so sorry about the typo in my previous article. I’ve rectified it !

    Using iatkos v7 vanilla install. Asus p5b.

  2. okay now with 10.6 it starts. But os x shows that mac hdd is extern. But its not. Its an sataII western digital 640gb one. Die diskutility also says its extern.
    Bootcamp says i cant partition my hdd caus its extern.

  3. Why is Bootcamp necessary? There are simpler, better tools to achieve a dual boot with Mac OS and Win. Using Bootcamp just adds additional complexity.

    1. Its easier
      Suppose if you use Retail installation. By default it uses GUID and Windows kinda hates GUID. Plus not everyone is able to figure out on how to use guides. If you take a look at forums (nah just here) , you’ll notice a lot of people are having issues. This just makes it a bit easier on splitting partitions and such.

  4. I agree with Pradeesh.
    If you want to install Mac OS X and Windows on the same harddisk,
    it’s much easier with this approach.

  5. When i open the patched bootcamp assistent and click continue, i get this message saying ‘external disk can ‘t be devided in partitionsn restart the computer from the internal bootdisk from the computer….

  6. Thanks for this util~~~
    How Can I Change My external HDD to Internal HDD?
    I use snow leopard 10.6.2 in hackintosh…
    Bootcamp doesn’t Work in external HDD

  7. “It will erase your 200MB Hidden EFI partition (so you’ll have to back up your patched kext , dsdt and stuff like that”
    I’am confused, the kexts are on the hidden partition? dsdt? whats that wheres that..uhh could you explain it more for a idiot πŸ™‚

  8. i used the empire efi disc to boot the osx after i installed windows 7 and it booted successfully the question is can i use the installer to boot the osx ?

  9. sorry pradesh, but the installation don’t start, never with xp πŸ™ I have always the blinking cursor
    What i can do? A great help please πŸ˜‰

  10. Same problem here, says it cannot install on an external hard drive, but my hdd is internal, so I don’t know why it would say this. Disc utility says it is external too.

  11. Now i can open the bootcamp as internal…after make sure fresh install SL to my internal HD not in external….just reinstall your SL by Leopard “boot from external”… should be work thats is the good news…the bad news is u can lost ur SL after installing Windows on “BOOTCAMP PARTITION”
    IF any body have a solutions how to fix this please reply it here..

  12. hi man, i just followed ur guide and successfully partitioned the disk , and booted from windows7 disk and installed .
    But i never installed chameleon/myhack to the system HD , used usb stick to boot in to SL.
    After windows install and restart …windows is directly loading(with out USB stick)….If i use USB stick i can either boot in to SL or W7 fantastic..
    small query: iam trying to dual boot from windows boot ,by using BCD Edit but unable to load …is it possible to boot like that (i never installed chameleon to HD, loading SL using myhack usb)

  13. I looked through dsdtse, and didn’t see any patch to make my hdd internal. Could someone point me in the right direction?

  14. I am having the same problem, it says my HD is external in bootcamp, and in disc utility too. I looked at dsdtse and I didn’t find a patch to make it internal. I really want to dual boot windows and snow leopard, but windows won’t install on guid.

  15. Well, i did this patch quite 2 years ago, and it works perfectly on 32 and 64 bits..
    the only things which afects the normal working of this application is the way you installed your system..
    I noticed that by choosing different bootloaders affected also the behaviour of BA.
    The perfect way to have it fully working on 10.5.x was to use Efi bootloader
    Now on 10.6 it works fine as well but it seems that something isn’t working as aspected on chameleon and therefore it only sees the primary partition instead of all the drives you have on your machine..
    Dint tried further to analize if on snow that could be bypassed as for Leo using again only efi partionboot.. not interested anymore, since all started just to help a friend who wanted at all cost bootcamp working ..
    you can give it a try anyway..

  16. hi there,
    first of all i have a german installation. The bootcamp assistent starts fine, 32bit is not available, anyway, it creates the partition and so on..just one problem, it will not find the windows install dvd, my dvd drive shows it on the desk, any idea?

  17. digitalix, you are a god. This worked greatly, and I bootcamp works now. Thank you so much, I looked at the kext and the ioahcistorageblockinjector I had said external in the info.plist, that is why. This one says internal, so it makes it think the drive is internal. Magnificent.

  18. i am havin a lot of hard time to dual boot win 7 and snow on gpt , so i will give that a shot but i wanna ask something , what if i create the partitions from SNOW leo dvd or even Gparted live cd as follow one for mac and one for win and other one for data , will boot camp recognize the partition or i have to shrink my mac partition ?
    p.s : if there is a way to make it on gpt , could u plz give any hints about it ?

  19. I got only 1 partition but I still get this error
    The startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition.
    The startup disk must be formatted as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume or already partitioned by Boot Camp Assistant for installing Windows.

  20. I now get this error message instead
    this disk is your mac os x startup disk and appears to have been partitioned by another utility

  21. You can manually patch it, its just the EAX, 2 part… set it from EB to JMP
    I’ve patched it for 10.6.0 and 10.6.2 too, 32bit.
    I could also patch the 64bit part for Fat binary

  22. Whenever I click in “start Installation” is says installer disk could not be found,what should I do now?how can I install it?

  23. Hi Pradesh,
    Im desperately sick finding dual boot for mac osx, currently im using 10.6.4, where can i get the 64bit version ?
    Appreciate if you can help me on this..

  26. Hi, looking for boot camp assistant for 10.8 hackintosh osx86…
    The old doesn’t lunch on 10.8 in either 32 or 64 bit modes…
    I need the Boot_Camp_Assistant10.6.rar to try out….
    Also, couple comments ago a kocoman replied but I can’t figure out how to do it….
    “You can manually patch it, its just the EAX, 2 part… set it from EB to JMP
    I’ve patched it for 10.6.0 and 10.6.2 too, 32bit.
