Hi guys,
 
:welcomeani:  to NooBs GuiDe :)
This guide is presented to you all by me and iFire. :) Attached File  emoticon-barcelona.gif   21.13KB   19 downloads 
We will be putting some time and effort in contributing this new guide to all our community members and will be updated daily by us. 
 

Basic Requirements to Lion /Mountain Lion/ Mavericks

 

 A Core 2 Duo or Core i3/i5/i7 Processors 
✓ Minimum of 2GB RAM (But most recommended will be 4GB for performance boost)
 Minimum of 10GB hard disk space is required. 
 Check your hardware compatibility list View Reference Link

 Last but not least and very important is to have lot of Patience  :yes: 
 

Part - I How to get access to a real Mac/OSX desktop/laptop using Windows PC

 

This part of the guide is must and only for all who don't have access to real Mac desktop/laptop. For others who can access real Mac desktop/laptop either by borrowing from friends or by any other means can skip this Part-I and move on to Part - II. Follow the steps taken in the below video to create a virtual mac system using Windows PC.The Virtual Machine should be either Lion/Mountain Lion/Mavericks OS X versions in order to proceed with next steps. So finally once you have a working Virtual Mac Machine then proceed to Part -II to create a OSX USB Boot Disk/Installer.

Part - II How to create OSX USB Boot disk/installer

 

Requirements

 A working install of OS X :  Virtual Machine or a native Install  to make your USBInstaller.
 A flash drive of minimum size 8GB formatted in GUID/GPT partition map scheme and HFS+ format type (see pic below).
 A copy of Lion / Mountain Lion / Mavericks.app.

✓DiskMaker X 
application [File Download Link]  to automate the process of creating USB Installer/boot disk.

   
Formatting USB flash drive   
1. In Windows, format your flash drive in FAT32
2. In your VM/Mavericks open Disk Utility and format the flash drive GUID/GPT and HFS+        
 

How to use DiskMaker X app

This video shows a good and easy tutorial on how to use the DiskMaker X app under Mac Virtual Machine in windows PC.

 

 

 

 

Part - III How to choose and install correct Boot Loader

                  

How to install Clover  boot loader on to USB Flash drive in Legacy BIOS mode

 

1. Download clover [File Download Link] and follow the video below.

                    

 

How to Install CLOVER to UEFI Mode : Install Clover to USB/HDD - Clover UEFI Guide

 

Part - IV Preparing system for OSX Install

 

Here first make sure the following checklist is double checked in the case of Laptop/Desktop before proceeding to installation part.

A Intel Laptop/Desktop with the OSX supported motherboard and processor.

Remove all the external connected devices of the Laptop/Desktop.

Only use On-Board Graphics and make sure you disable discrete graphics card either from BIOS or by removing it from Motherboard.

Make sure you only have working motherboard, CPU with on-board graphics and USB 2.0 ports (Do not use USB 3.0 port,because they need special drivers and can be fixed in post install). 

For laptops use external Keyboard and Mouse for installation,this is because the trackpad/touchpad will not work until they are fixed with correct drivers, which can be done in post-install.

Finally the above prepared OSX USB bootdisk/installer.

 

Part - V BIOS Settings/Configuration

 

Legacy BIOS - Laptops/Desktops

 

Essential Settings:

Config > Serial ATA (SATA) > SATA Controller Mode Option [AHCI] 

Security > Memory Protection > Execution Prevention [Enabled] 

 

Other Settings:

Security > Security Chip > Security Chip [Disabled] 

Startup > UEFI/Legacy Boot [Both] 

Startup > UEFI/Legacy Boot Priority [Legacy First] 

 

 

Part - VI Fix OSX Boot using Boot Flags and Other Fixes

 

Below are the list of combination of boot-flags which may be required for those who are having trouble to boot USB boot-disk/Installer.Please be aware the list of combinations has been tested, so don't mix unless you know what you're doing. And most importantly try the combinations one after other,  BUT NEVER TRY MORE THAN ONE COMBINATION AT THE SAME TIME.

PART VI - Post Installation

 

Post-Installation is all about making hardware devices to get recognized by OSX  by finding appropriate drivers and patches. This section will be tricky unless you have a hardware that is supported by native OSX kexts(a.k.a Drivers). So please be aware that you might need some more patience which you used so far  :yes:

Discrete Graphics Cards

How to check if your Graphic card are  fully working with CE/CI 
 
QE/CI is graphics acceleration. Easy way to check is look at your menu bar -- if the desktop background picture is 'showing through' (eg. the menu bar is partially transparent), then it is probably working. You can also enable magnification on the OS X dock, and see if you get smooth animation.

 In this Example for the ATI HD 5000 Series: For that you card ATI HD works, the system need read this 04 kexts or never this will work.
 
1. Check if all kexts AMD are loading for your card with the command kexstat, open Terminal app and type
 

Note: Install the kext lspci.kext to the system return all the results
 

sudo kextstat | grep AMD

63 2 0xffffff7f80ba9000 0x1d8000 0x1d8000 com.apple.kext.AMDSupport (8.0.0) <62 10 9 7 5 4 3 1>

2. Check that Framebuffer the system is loading for your card, or only read the default com.apple.kext.AMDFramebuffer 
 ioreg | grep ATY
    | |   |   | +-o ATY,Vervet@0  <class AtiFbStub, id 0x10000035e, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (90 ms), retain 8>
    | |   |   | | +-o ATY_Vervet  <class AMDFramebuffer, id 0x10000036b, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (16 ms), retain 18>
    | |   |   | +-o ATY,Vervet@1  <class AtiFbStub, id 0x10000035f, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (0 ms), retain 8>
    | |   |   | | +-o ATY_Vervet  <class AMDFramebuffer, id 0x100000379, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (0 ms), retain 14>
    | |   |   | +-o ATY,Vervet@2  <class AtiFbStub, id 0x100000360, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (0 ms), retain 8>
    | |   |   | | +-o ATY_Vervet  <class AMDFramebuffer, id 0x10000037f, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (0 ms), retain 14>
    | |   |   | +-o ATY,Vervet@3  <class AtiFbStub, id 0x100000361, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (0 ms), retain 8>
    | |   |   | | +-o ATY_Vervet  <class AMDFramebuffer, id 0x100000385, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (0 ms), retain 14>
 
3. Correct Value PCIRootUID
 
find the correct  value:  ioreg -l | grep -15 "AppleACPIPCI" | grep "_UID"
    | | |   "_UID" = "0"
 
4. Fake id with Clover boot loader, here a Example with the card : This is a technique to activate ATI HD cards with the boot loader Clover 
 
AMD r9 270 -7000 Series - Credits to Pokenguyen
 
If you're using Clover, you can use Clover Injection to force those 2 kexts loaded. Here are the supported ids for ATI HD7000 Series in the info.plist of the kexts
AMD7000Controller.kext: 0x26001002 0x22001002 0x67901002 0x67981002 0x679A1002 0x679E1002 0x67801002 0x68201002 0x68211002 0x68231002 0x68251002 0x68271002 0x682D1002 0x682F1002 0x68391002 0x683B1002 0x683D1002 0x683F1002 0x68001002 0x68011002 0x68061002 0x68081002 0x68101002 0x68181002
AMDRadeonX4000.kext - Pitcairn0x68001002 0x68011002 0x68061002 0x68081002 0x68101002 0x68181002

As you see, those ids are supported by both kexts, so we set these in Clover:

FakeID > ATI: 0x68001002

 
OS X will think our card id is 0x68001002 and load them, voila!
 
You also have to set FB Name for this card (I assume Futomaki).
Graphics > FB Name: Futomaki
Graphics > Inject ATI: check
Graphics > Dual Link: 0 for low resolution, 1 for high
Graphics > Load VBIOS: check (or not)
Graphics > Patch VBIOS: check (or not)

the final config.plist should be as shown below, and don't forget to use vanilla kexts too.

Note: HD2000/HD3000 are not the best adapted onboard graphics for OSX and there might be few or more graphical issues like glitches/artifacts after all having it configured to its best.Some work arounds has to be done to minimise these problems and may not be stable. Different troubleshooting methods work for different systems and might need to google and find one.
 
From the above IDs, 0116 and 0126 are the IDs of Intel HD 3000 device commonly used in Apple MacBook Pro8.1 and Mac Mini5.1. The native OSX drivers load only if any of these two IDs are present onboard, other than these two IDs then its must changing the device ID to one of these IDs using DSDT patch.
 
And also make sure of using the correct SMBIOS with respect to IDs. It  means the 0116 ID is for MacBooK Pro8.1 and 0126ID is for mac mini 5.1.
 
Follow the below steps to enable HD3000
 
1. Make sure vanilla AppleIntelGraphicsHD3000.kext and AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext are loaded.
 
2. Open DSDT.aml file using Macaisl or DSDTEditor application and look up for Device GFX0 or IGPU. Then find the address 0x00020000. Its should be something like this 

Device (GFX0)
        {
            Name (_ADR, 0x00020000)

Now paste the below code exactly after the above code as shown below shown below.

HD4XXX series will be supported natively by OSX vanilla kexts. So only boot-loaders should be configured in order to enable them.

 

Here is a package of clover config files which contains preconfigured plist files for intel HD3000/4000/4400/4600.Use them wisely as required.

well, this depend what problem you have, if this is a problem with a kext or not, if you look in the first part of the guide have a lot of  kexts to for solve problems like still waiting for root device, pci config begin, IDE Controllers..etc..., 

 

3. Problems with the first boot ? Kernel Panic, crash system, the machine reboot,  Please, Screenshots of the error are always helpful

Excellent guide.  Thanks @ios9 & @IFIRE :D.

 

I've noticed that installers made with DiskMakerX or Apple's createinstallmedia tool lack a  /System/Library/Extensions folder (they actually rely on a hidden kernelcache file) -

If there are any problems during the install, it is much harder to modify/delete/add kexts since they are actually contained in the kernelcache rather than /S/L/E.  In these cases, it may be preferable to create the installer USB the traditional "hackintosh way" by expanding BaseSystem.dmg eg

 

like in the Vanilla OSX Install Guide or my Guide to creating a Vanilla Mavericks Installer using Windows which have an easily accessible S/L/E folder.

hi   fusion71au, 

 

you is right, this method with DiskMaker  and the script from Apple have this problem if you need delete the graphics kexts, but you always can boot with -f -x -v to ignore caches and  bypass graphics problems, if  you need add any kext, you can add in the folder EFI/Kext/10.9 in the Clover boot loader. 

I have other method much more easy to make the USBInstaller with other app and a script that I have made, go post here and change this one.

 

thanks for your report, and very good guide for windows that you have made !!!

 

Thanks!!!!

I installed (EFI mode) Clover on a stick but it just doesn't work. From the clover menu, I choose to boot from the installer stick (Mavericks) I made with DiskMakerX, but it does nothing. The menu just sits there after I press Enter, and it refreshes when I hit a key (any key). I tried with different clover settings, boot flags, onboard (intel 4000) / regular (nvidia gtx 650) graphics card... Nada. Windows 8 (EFI) boots fine from inside Clover.

Check if you made the USB GUID and JHFS+, and make sure you're booting from Legacy Mode not UEFI mode (it wont work on UEFI mode, trust me, I tried it, and ppl who worked on that topic knows it) ;)

Thanks midi, legacy indeed works and it can handle my Windows UEFI installation too (which was my main concern).

Yeah, I was so happy it worked, and then realized the boot process stops after a while whith some bluetooth error (I don't have a bluetooth on my desktop). This is my 3rd attempt to build a hackintosh (I've wasted 3 afternoons and a couple of nights so far) and it seems to me that it's nothing but problems upon problems. I appreciate your help though :-)

It's a graphics problem, try to disable the nvidia card (from bios if possible) and tell me what's your screen resolution ;)

Oh, I've tried both cards. Nothing changes. Judging from how right sized, nice and crisp the apple logo looks, the resolution seems to be my screen's native one (1680x1050). I also tried the various flags this guide suggests, and I've also disabled Intel's Vt-d technology (since some people suggest this is often the culprit). Here's the error by the way:

[IOBluetoothHCIController][SearchForTransportEventTimeoOutHandler]--Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport!
