hi

 

you should at first try to use MacBook Pro 5,1 smbios (or higher)  and not MacBook Pro 4,1, it seems to be more compatible with your graphics card

Dear,

 

I have installed Mac OS X Mavericks on my hackintosh laptop (BTO S97V).

My screen worked very good in Snow leopard (10.6.8), but in Mavericks, my PC crashes all the time.

 

The specifications (are not quite right at the processor speed etc.):

MacBook Pro (4,1)

These are a couple of things the screen is showing, when it is going crazy:

When I start my PC, and login to Mavericks, the screen right away is doing and showing strange things. First of all I can work on the PC, but I see well, a kind of 'color snow'. That 'color snow' is showing everywhere on the screen.

 

After that snow, the screen starts showing things as above in the picture and then completely freezes. I can move the mouse for a couple of seconds, but after that, I can't do a thing and I am forced to shut the laptop down (hard reset).

 

Does anybody have similar problems with this videocard in combination with Mavericks? Or can somebody tell me if I can do anything about it?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Kind regards,

 

EvilID
