so I tried Bronya's RC7 and Tori's Rev8 kernels

 

with the following kexts:

  • AppleACPI
  • IOPCIFamily
  • IOUSBFamily
  • IOUSBMassStorage
  • pthread

I need the 1st four otherwise, I'll get kernel panic. And even though pthread is from Tori's kernel, I get kernel panic without it on Bronya kernel.

 

I'm also using the latest chameleon (2686) and using the boot file included with the pkg and a test boot from the chameleon dev thread.

 

and my setup is stuck (please see screenshot).

 

any ideas on how to fix?

 

so I just made a Usb installer with 10.10.4 (if anyone can share 10.10.1 I would appreciate that very much) and I'm still stuck at this portion. I've patched my video card correctly (at least I think it works as it's correctly detected as GT610 in mavericks).

 

Any more ideas? thanks :)

After several tries, I am finally using Yosemite on my setup. I found a guide from Spakk which uses FakeSMC and NullPowerManagement (instead of a patched AppleACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily) and this finally enabled me to install Yosemite.

 

All is not good though. For whatever reason, my motherboard settings becomes corrupt after a reboot/shutdown. I am using Tori's Rev8 kernel and patched pthread.  I have also tried chameleon 2716 and 2700 (I know this version doesn't give me a similar problem in Mavericks). 

 

This happens if I also just boot (booted and immediately shut down) from the USB installer or booting from the SSD.

 

Any suggestion on what to do? I'm not really sure if it's kernel or chameleon related or perhaps something else. Thanks! :)

Hi mrjayviper

first of  all download the latest BIOS vers. F10e see here

2. Install BIOS vers. F10e

 

3. Customize BIOS settings, see pictures in Appendix

4. Create a DSDT.aml with MaciASL, then fix all bugs and modify the dsdt.aml

5  create an USB flash drive with OS X  Yosemite, then install latest version of Chameleon bootloader
 
6.then add the Drivers, see Appendix to the folder Extra/Extensions/   (Nullpowermanagement.kext, FakeSMC.kext, AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext, Patched_10.7_AppleRTC.kext, RealtekRTL81xx.kext

7. Install smbios.plist (14.2) use Chameleon Wizard and modify the org.chameleon.Boot.plist similar to the example

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">

snip....

 

all I can say is "WOW".

1. may I also know what kernel are you using?

2. what Mac did you select for SMBios.plist?

 

Thanks a LOT! :)

use one of the appropriate kernel for FX CPUs, either Bronya or Tora Chi Yo's. basically should start the system with most AMD kernel.
to customize and create a matching smbios.plist use Chameleon Wizard ... for my hardware.... I have good experience with smbios.plist for IMac 14.2. That you should test times which is right for you.

Good luck!

anyone experiencing USB stick corruption? I tried formatting a stick on my hackintosh and and it wouldn't work. so I formatted it on the MBPr. Put it back on the hackintosh and tried copying some files. seems to work but when I plugged it in on the MBPR, it's corrupted.

 

any ideas? thanks

may I ask if you can use "computer sleep" in your setup. Not important. I'm just wondering.

 

Thanks again

These problems can be fix by modifying the DSDT.

1. Download and install MacIasl or  DSDT Editor

2. Create a raw dsdt from your system then save the file as dsdt.dsl and uploade the file.

3. Install the IORegistryExplorer.app and save / export the file as ***.ioreg and uploade the file.

hi mrjayviper, here is a modified DSDT.aml for your system. 
 
In addition, "rampagedev" has already created the most SSDT.aml for many motherboard in a collection "AMD.DMG". 
 
here is the download link: https://rampagedev.w...d-dmg/gigabyte/
Furthermore you can find here more information to the emergence of the "AMD.dmg" : http://www.insanelym...mg-development/
 
(Sorry, I've forgotten to mention)
