Since i managed to get everything running stable i'd like to give a little guide:

 

before i started, i updated my bios to the latest Version 0704.

 

settings are just sata mode -> ahci

slep mode -> S3 only

Secure Virtualisation -> on

 

i will post screens of my bios to show you the settings i use

 

....

 

 

lets get started:

 

 

1. extract niresh 10.8.5 .dmg to usb.

 

2. boot with flag kernel=amd64 root=BaseSystem.dmg . also uncheck USB injection at PCI settings, othewise my keyboard didn't work (bluetooth logitehc thingy)

 

3. when opening the advanced install-options, uncheck the audio kexts, they gave me kernel panic. Install...this takes about 15 mins. when installation is finished (with error), don't reboot, open terminal and umount the install-hdd (umount -f /Volumes/whereveryouinstalled)

 

4 open Disk Utility and repair disk and permissions

 

5. reboot. boot from usb stick to reach clover, this time bootflags are npci=0x2000 -v -x -s, of course we start from the hdd we installed OSX on.

 

6. when you reached the single-user bash do 'fsck -f' to repair and fix again.

 

7. if it is finished 'exit' to boot to graphical mode.

 

8. you should be granted with welcome screen

 

9.wait till nireshs post-install stuff finishes......

 

10. then install kext for audio: http://www.osx86.net...or-via-vt1708s/

 

11. replace mach_kernel in root-directory with this one... it worked for me to escape safe-mode http://www.osx86.net...085-amd-kernel/ the original Kernel seems to not support nvidia GPUs.

      to do so, open terminal and enter 'sudo chflags nohidden /mach_kernel' to unhide the kernel. copy-paste the new kernel, then hide it again 'sudo chflags hidden /mach_kernel'

 

12. install clover (http://sourceforge.n.../cloverefiboot/). remeber to disable usb injection to get your input device running

 

13. enter 'yes > /dev/null' in a terminal to put some load on the cpu in order to get non-crackeling sound or buy a usb soundcard. mine is still on the way, i will report.

 

14. be happy with your amd hackintosh

 

 

A screenie of my system to show you it works wink.png

I still need to figure out howto change the smbios clover is using, since right now the PC is recognized as a MacBookPro, which prevents me from installing nvidia-cuda-drivers, since they are eclusivly for mac pro >3.1 .

 

Network, Graphics Usb3 is working outofthebox!

 

i don't know if firewire works, since i don't have any device using it.

 

All Apps running without problems until now (except iMessage, which gives me a freeze. i can move mouse, but all else is frozen).

 

geekbench+unigine heaven bench: no problem

 

vmware fusion with xp and linux running: no problem

 

seems all pretty stable to me!

 

 

I hope i could help someone! Happy hacking!

 

 

Thanx @ niresh for making this distro. without it i would still be stuck on reaching the installer wink.png

 

also big thanx to all the people helping me!
