[Fixed] BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directory

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I have a problem after installing Niresh's 10.8.2 on my HP Pavilion DV6-6023TX to a Lexar 16GB USB (MBR). I can boot up the installation without any flags except -v and everything installs ok but the thing is when i try and boot up post installation it always stops at the line  BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directory

This is what happens when i try and boot with -x

I have tried reparing permissions and regenerating a new kext cache but it still has the same problem. Does anyone have any idea on how i can fix this problem

Laptop Specs:

-CPU: Intel i5 2410M
-Memory: 4GB
-Graphics: Intel HD 3000 + ATI Radeon 6770m

 

Thanks

Do you see justBootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directoryorBootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directoryBug:launchctl.c:2408 (24687):30: cdefd =open (g_overrides_db_patch....This issue in my experience is due to a Chameleon bootloader and/or fakesmc.kext version issue problem.......and the problem is usually resolved by trying a different version of Chameleon bootloader and/or fakesmc.kext........However, if you have enabled the UEFI BIOS mode, you should be using the Clover UEFI bootloader, which is an EFI bootloader, and not Chameleon, which is a BOOT132 bootloader.......Unless you have the option to disable the UEFI BIOS mode and hence use the legacy MBR BIOS mode, enabling you to use the Chameleon bootloader.........it depends on what bootloader your installation CD employs.....

1) Are you connecting and extra monitor to the laptop? And is your BIOS Flashed ?

 

No i have not connected a extra monitor and yes the bios is flashed with a whitelisted one

 

2) It says only says BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directory.

-Do you have any links to different versions of fakesmc that i can try?

-My BIOS is not UEFI and the bootloader never installs correctly for some reader because i always get boot0:error so i always try and boot the usb using the native bootloader on niresh's 10.8.2 instsall cd

-x doesnt do crap, still gets stuck in the same place as the picture

 

-f -v allows me to get past the BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directory but now it gets stuck at BootCacheControl: Added 32bit kernel cache to the lowest priority batch.

 

BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 no such file or directory

BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCaches/PreheatedUser/Merged.playlist: 2 no such file or directory

BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache/PreheatedUser/Login.playlist: 2 no such file or directory

BootCacheControl: Added 32bit kernel cache to the lowest priority batch

 

Any ideas?

Check that your BIOS parameters are configured according to the recommended settings

Hi, I encounter the same problem on my laptop Dell XPS M1530.

Basicly I am following this (http://www.osx86.net/topic/19216-success-mavericks-gm-13a598-on-dell-xps-m1530/) to create my USB installer.

However when I start install the mavericks, it give me the 2 no such file faulty every time.

I have tried fix permission and rebuild cache on kext-wizards, but it still make no difference.

 

Could you please advise how to fix this problem? What do you mean about the "installation did not complete correctly. Switch to another device and it will be fine"? I really confused. :headbang:
