Hello!

I'm brand new to installing OS X onto a physical machine, so please pardon my newbishness ^_^

note: I posted this in the wrong place (OSX 10.9 installation), so If this is also the wrong place, could an admin please move me to the right place ;)  thanks!

 

So Here's the build I'd like to install OS X 10.9 (or 10.8 if 10.9 wont work):

Processor: Intel Core i7-4770k

Graphics Card: MSI Twin Frozr GTX 660 Ti (The MSI version of Nvidia's GTX 660 Ti?)

Memory: Patriot Viper 32GB (4x 8GB cards)

Motherboard: MSI MPOWER Z87 Chipet (Does have the UEFI thing)

DVD Drive: ASUS 24x DVD Burner DRW-24B1ST

HDD: 1 or 2 TB (Don't think it matters)

 

I built it with the best that I could get, thinking that it would be better so that OS X would run really fast  :)

 

So will my hardware support? and what boot flags (I read some of the instructions) should I use?

 

Will provide everything necessary to get this baby working xD

 

Thanks!
DustinKazi

 

P.S. Could I also possibly install Xcode and iLife on it (via the DMG files that I found)?

I tried to run it, but my computer just restarts. It says loading kernel cache and then restarts.

What do I do? Must I go to the not-so-nice Tonymacx86 :(...

Hello

Configure your Bios: http://olarila.com/f....php?f=2&t=1804
Translat it

Your mobo is UEFI, so set it to UEFI mode, know how: http://olarila.com/f...php?f=28&t=4084

Well I did it, and its still doing the same thing. It said not to use UEFI boot, so I changed that, and it still didn't work. I wasn't sure where to find all the settings, but I found the closest thing to it. Still doesn't work is what i'm saying.

Hello

It said not to use UEFI boot

Who said this to you? Your mobo is UEFI, so you must set your mobo to UEFI mode, i gave to you the guide

 

Execute Disable Bit(NX bit or XD bit) must be enabled in your Bios... it fix restart problem... did you enable it?

 

Disable your integrated graphic in Bios, because you need use dedicated... boot with GraphicsEnabler=No

The second link said to not use UEFI usb boot, and set it to legacy. Either way It didn't work.

Also, I can't find the setting for NX bit or XD bit in my bios setup.

And I have been booting with these flags: -v npci=0x2000 (those were default) GraphicsEnabler=No

What people don't understand is installing MacOSX on x86 Intel Hardware and hacked emulation for AMD is stealing in the first place.

Second InsanelyMac and any kexts or bootloaders that get released are all released under free licensing so anyone can modify, copy, alter people's hack or code.

I understand TonyMac might of just copied someone elses code and released as his own but, when source code is released under free license you don't have to credit it as the originator.

 

Open source is open source, but people, developers on this forum have to understand there is many differences when people argue over stealing when you are hacking and stealing from Apple in the first place? How can any user justify this?

 

I have been a member of this forum for a very long time and Tonymac had been around for a very long time. I just think the OSX community should just quit this stupid argument or the blames left and right of stealing when basically all this news is rubbish in terms of throwing a blame around for using open source code.

Hello

 

Read entire guide... First part teach how use legacy_boot, second part teach how enable UEFI mode...

 

Try find this option Execute Disable Bit or NX bit or XD bit is the same thing, but with diferents names...

 

If nothing work try boot change to Chameleon bootaloder, when you boot usb bootable press 1 while cursor bliking and you will change bootloader


Hello

 

@atlee

 

We not stolen the softaware Apple because even to be able to make our bootable usb have a Mac computer running OSX ... And you already know about tonymac ... It is safe to say that when it distributes open source is something for everyone to adjust, but everything under license from the developer ... what I see is that tonymac earn money with your applications iBoo*t and Multi***beast, and in these applications are much things developed by others, an example is FakeSMC (he didn't develop it)

In others words, the developers of these kexts, these scripts, work hard to create them and don't earn and don't charge anything for this, and then appears a guy named tonymac that joins all this material in one application and start making money on it as if he had carried it all ...

I do not think that's fair...
Because of that he is a thief.

 

Excuse for my English...

Where on earth is he getting money from? He doesn't sell his bootloader, he doesn't sell setup's to businesses so no I don't think he makes money or commission from what he does?

Tony does sell merchandise like stickers and shirts but he doesn't sell kexts, bootloaders or software.

 

So please tell me how Tonymac is making money from an opensource bootloader?

tonymacx86's instructions for people to "contribute" should not lead to a paypal billing page...

Hello

 

@atlee

 

Okay .. He does not sell the bootloader and not the apps he creates ... He has another system to make money... The system of earning money games it is very simple ...

The iboo * t, the app that lets you install OSX, is very limited ... he says that if you do not have core i CPU you can not install OSX with his tool, he also said if you do not have Gigabyte mobo (which he says are the most compatible ...) you will have a hack 100% and if you do not buy the video card mentioned by them, you will not have a hack with QE / CI ... They put on the same topic that the guides are a link to the shopping site (Amazon. ..)

That is, it practically forces the User to buy that kind of hardware they require ... if not the user won't have a hack 100% because Multibeas ** t tools will not support hardware that user has ... And as user think the Multibeas***t tool is the best there is in the world, and want use it ... he(user) goes there(link of the shopping site) and buys everything the tonymac says, making tonymac make money from it ...

 

Sorry for my English

He doesn't force anyone to buy anything.

If I spent my hard eanred time researching what hardware works with mac and what doesn't then I would also create a referal link to Amazon and others shops to earn click through money. Remember time = money. This obviously doesn't apply in the open source world but in reality I think recommending hardware and using referals to shops is a good idea to atleast pay for research time.

 

it's no big deal man, everyone should lety him be whoever he wants to be.

 

No point name shaming people in an open source community. Not everyone is perfect! No one is perfect!

 

It's great we can create hackingtoshes. Awsome in fact! saves thousands in your pocket.

 

We are here to help each other not bag each other out.

Hello

 

The only thing we're doing is wasting time here and messing up the topic of user Dustinkazi... sorry Dustinkazi

If you don't follow the ideas and concepts of the forum, I ask you: What are you doing here?
If we discuss about it in the forum tony, we would be banned at the same time ... The staff there is very ignorant ...

Not to mention that the tool multib***east makes you a zombie ...
and there is plenty of zombie in forum tonymac ... nor a practical response personnel there can give to help users ...Because just think that is enough install Multib***east...

I am user of InsanelyMac and never used the tonymac forum ... I've read a lot of there when it was new to hack world and now I see that nothing I read there help me ... and never will help...

InsanelyMac isn't just any forum, it has a culture, its dogmas and its taboos ...

Let me be honest with you:

First, I did try ton*y's tools, but it still did the same thing. Right now I just want to get it up and running, without too many non-solvable issues. I get the fact that his tools use other people's software without giving credit, but if it gets the job done, I'm happy with the stuff people made. So here's the problem:

I did what you said, and tried every form of bootloader, software, etc. All of them end the same way: with the computer restarting. I've used -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 (also tried 0x3000) -F. I did try safe mode, but it does start, but i dont know where it stops, it still restarts basically.

 

Right before it reboots, its says its loading the kernel with all the dots (...........) and then it restarts.

 

What do I Do? I've tried Nir*esh, i*Atkos, O*laria, UniBe****, and with those boot flags: Still the same thing! I configured my bios with the settings that i could find. I know SATA mode is AHCI and HPET is in 64 bit (even though there is no setting for it, other forums about this Mobo says so).

 

Thanks!

DustinKazi

@C.Frio, I don't really want to take that risk, especially since MSI isn't on the list. I don't have anything installed on that machine either. The hard drive was already formatted.
