I have some problems with AMD Kernel which Niresh is using in his Yosemite distro with AMD suport.  I just can't open or install (uTorrent, WIMP, Spotify, Any game I tried (Trine, Angry Birds), Steam Client). 

I'm getting unexpected crash (Logical CPU error 0x00000000). Is there any soultion for this? Or I need to wait for better AMD Kernel for Yosemite?

ESXi is free

It has a free version with limits, however what was linked was a torrent including a keygen. So I stand by choice of removing the original url.

I didn't relize, thanks for the info.

Hello Guys,


You've been doing some great working creating these kernels. 


I'm becoming an enthusiast hackintosh builder, having installed Yosemite on an Intel pc of mine. I have now begun the task of trying to install Yosemite on my AMD laptop but this is a whole new world to me with these different Kernels. 


I know its a lot to ask as you guys are still busy trying to perfect the kernels but please could somebody give me a brief breakdown/step by step on where to put the kernel & what boot-loaders to uses ect?


If you could It would be much appreciated.

You can use the usual bootloaders to boot Yosemite on AMD platforms; Clover, Chameleon or any other one that supports 10.10.


The AMD kernel goes in /System/Library/Kernels as "kernel", replacing the vanilla version. You would normally then rebuild the kext/kernel cache with the following Terminal commands:

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

sudo kextcache -Boot -U /

I successfully installed Yosemite on AMD using this kernel

Everything works good except for Sleep. It also sometimes hangs when shutting down/restarting. The screen goes black, but it never finishes shutting "going to sleep"/down.


Any tips on a workaround? Is it something to do with the kernel or could it be something else?

PS: Also a huge thanks to everyone on this post and the one I linked, you guys rock!


EDIT: I was about to patch my DSDT and Sleep just started working, so I don't know what happened

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: SL, ML, AMD, APU, FX, Bulldozer
