Hello,

I would like to run a retail version of os x 10.8.3 on my

HP Pavilion G6 AMD A6-4400M
8 GB Ram
AMD 7520G 512MB
Samsung 120GB SSD (*GPT)
500GB Hitachi 7200RPM (*GPT)


My problem is i can boot the installer just fine with different versions of Clover, the install is always succesfull but when i try to boot it .... KP ...

I used diffrent kernels ...

Anv's amd_kernel
Sintek
mach_sse42_only

They boot fine to install os x ... but after the install its headache ... i've been trying this for a couple of month now still no go..
Lion 10.7.2 did the job but only boots with chameleon in legacy mode ... with clover no go (arch=i386) the apple logo just keeps spinning forever..

When i try to boot os x with -v it gives me alot of error messages .. " Error reading System/Library/Extensions " then the KP happens ...

Used common bootflags .. but i can never boot my os x system .... i just don't know what to do anymore if someone can help please :star_sunglasses:

Did someone else with an AMD pc use Clover? I think they all use chameleon, maybe try with that. Clover is maybe setting the kernel wrong or something. I'm not using clover anymore because i didn't want to learn all the new boot flags and it was annoying that i had to search it up the whole time.

With the latest chameleon ( usb only boots in legacy mode not uefi ) the apple logo comes up but the spinning wheel nevers shows up tryed 4 or 5 kernels ... i cannot boot the installer... i swapped memory did not work either...

funny thing is i placed all kernels in root .. and named them ..

amd
amd2
amd3
amd4
amd5

When one kernel reboots i just tryed the other one .. xD :moil:

Be polite, man: people try help you on their free time, when they know what to suggest as a solution: you're entitled to absolutely nothing here.

The problem is the methods that worked for everyone else are not working for you, Jerome. Your hardware is really difficult to deal with, starting with that locked InsydeH2O BIOS. Laptops are a pain in the OS, AMD laptops even worse: what could you expect with an APU laptop with locked BIOS?

You either try some other method or give it up; there's no alternative. I see you put a lot of kernels in the root of your HDD to test: are you remembering to boot with -f when switching between then? Are you remembering to use arch=i386? Did you try to add the correct busratio as a flag?

All the best!

Dude chill xD..AMD is fun :P this is my first amd cpu and my first laptop..it sure does take a big pain in the {censored}, but thats how life goes ;) we simple gotta kick it back and try again ;D and again ;D i spent my time trying for a lot of time (6 months to be exact) ..and i got a solution..a f_u_c_king solution! yours might not be the same but may be similar! The point is: NEVER GIVE UP ;D

Hackintoshing in intel..was already hard..making it full vanilla ..i loved it :P but this time.. AMD made me fell even better once I saw the OSX booting with {censored} success :D and the rest is about to come..excepting for wireless..that one ill have to use a pen.-- but good enought :P

If you don't like to feel stymied, don't go AMD. If you wan't a cheap mac clone without the sweat, well... any custom Intel rig is comparatively cheaper than actual Apple hardware, and if you go for a modern Pentium dual-core CPU (despite the name, it's using core micro-architecture, but no integrated graphics) and a mATX board, you can get a real cheap vanilla solution, yet with lower performance.

The whole point of doing hackintosh on AMD hardware, at least these days, is the fun you have overcoming each challenge that appears in the way. And yes: when and if you get it all working, you have a OSX system as stable and powerful as any core i hackintosh, for a fraction of the price - the so-desired cheap mac clone, in the end. But you gotta enjoy walking in the path itself, so the destination, since even uncertain, becomes worthy of all time invested. I cannot describe in words the feeling of achievement when i got Mountain Lion up and running on the computer that i'm typing from right now. That feeling, i suppose, is what differentiate the hobbyist, the computer enthusiast (which i didn't know i was until i started this) from the regular user who just want a working machine for his/her needs.

I really think Jerome should give up and go Intel (or simply stay with Windows, if he doesn't need OSX, since his laptop is not bad at all), if he thinks he had enough of trying to turn his machine to a hackintosh. It's a valid option as any. I can comprehend all the frustration he had, but he better understands no one here is to blame.

All the best!

I don't think this button even exists. It's perhaps a good suggestion. :)

PM Alessandro, the main admin of Insanelymac: he will help you with this kind of procedures: http://www.insanelym...5-alessandro17/

All the best!

P.S.: if you're going to change to Intel, here's a topic where you can get help to choose your parts: http://www.insanelym...r-every-budget/
