I'm a first-time Hackintosher. Tried a few years back but I couldn't get it to work. Thought I'd give it a go again now that I've a few more years of experience on me. To start, here are my specs...
Asus P8H61-M Mainboard
Intel Core i72600K @3.5Ghz
Asus EAH6850 2GB
1TB Samsung HD103SJ
8GB 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM
What I've done so far...
- Installed OS X Mavericks on a 100Gb partition using a ##### USB created in OS X Mountain Lion running on a Windows Machine in VMWare Workstation.
- Got wireless networking up and running, using a Sweex Lwo53 USB wlan receiver, and drivers from RalinkTech/MediaTech website.
At the moment, however, I am only able to boot into safe mode. The problem seems to lie with the GPU and its kexts somewhere, as when I disable either AMD6000Controller.kext or AMDX3000.kext, the system boots just fine, but without any hardware acceleration.
I've spent about a week googling the topic, and found plenty of leads, but nothing's worked. I've experimented with most of the more common bootflags, but I don't quite understand DSDT whether its necessary when using Mavericks. I also don't quite understand framebuffers and personalities with regards to my GPU. I've been a hardcore Windows user all my life so I'm very much out of my depth.
I'm also not one for posting on forums much, but this community seems brilliant, so I figure someone must be able to point me in the right direction! Any help would be greatly appreciated. If anyone needs any more info, just let me know.
(Also, I am aware that this site/forum does not support tonymacx86, so I don't know whether I'm allowed to mention his programmes or not, but those were the first thing I came across and they seemed the most simple at the time, so apologies in advance for that.)
