Hi all,

 

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.

- Run ##### (##### configuration).

- 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.)

 

Cheers!

Hi man ...but ten boy's tell me for this problem with Tony's metod-

- Installed OS X Mavericks on a XXXX partition using a ##### USB created in OS X Mountain Lion running on a Windows Machine in VMWare Workstation.

- Run ##### (##### configuration).

I say...if you install successfuly... see inside Mackintosh partitions...you use empty Extra folder(or not have one)and never get Video working(only grey screen)and another :wallbash:

Hey Husaber! Thanks for the reply.

 

Are you saying the problem could lie with using tonymacx86 methods?

 

If so, what would you suggest I try instead? Should I give myHack a go?

 

What're the functional differences between the two?

 

I now have my sound working as well, through my Behringer Xenyx QX2442 USB, so the only thing I'm missing is full GPU hardware acceleration.

 

Thanks!
