How do you use custom kernels for install?

31 July 2013 - 08:51 PM

Here are my specs.


Mother Board: Asus m5A78L-m

CPU: AMD FX-4350



I just noticed that they released an FX processor kernel for the FX (piledrivers)


I first tried using Niresh version which had custom kernels for AMD installed, and tried using both bootflags in Niresh's tutorial.


only the legacy / compatability mode amd kernels would get it to the next stage of the install (sorry i do not remember the boot flags off the top of my head, I lost my main HDD yesterday with all my data so i'm trying to get OSX working for a fresh start and new beginning) it would kernel panic while loading the installer files, and after a few retries it would just auto reboot without the kernel panic.  I was using a compatible video card which i purchased just for running OSX.


My question is, how do I load up the downloaded fx piledriver kernel for the install.  Would I have to put it in the folder with other amd kernels in Niresh's install?  Or use a thumb drive or something?  That is what I am unsure about at the moment.


Or if there is a new test distro out which has FX piledriver kernels added? 

Is it possible to install 10.7.5 drivers on 10.8.2?

Done a lot of google searching and can't find anything. 

Niresh 10.7.3 reboots at beginning of install.

I set my bios up just as stated by Niresh and to my surprise it supported all the items listed.  At first I would get a kernel panic after inputting "kernel cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v command.


It auto restarts after I input "kernel cache"=\amd arch=i386 -v.  At first I used "kernel cache"=\amd and it said kernel not found, but after it a while it would just reboot no matter which one of the two I tried.


It does not make it to mac screen.


Is there a different version I should be trying?  My processor is kind of new and I wonder if it is the problem. 

This is the first part of the battle, my wireless, video, and sound require 10.7.5 for the drivers, and I'm unsure if I can install 10.7.5 drivers if I bumped up to a 10.8+ version.

Compatible wireless cards?

I'm looking for a wireless card to buy for my first amd build, I currently have a GSky that uses Realtek RTL8187L.  Not sure if it works or not, can;t really find a resource on it, I just want to be able to install osx and have the wireless work.  :(

Help with my first AMD Hackintosh. :)

Hello, I want to turn my new custom PC into a hackintosh and I am worried about some of the hardware not being compatible. 


I have installed osx on my thinkpad before with wifi being the only thing that didn't work.  This is my first time with AMD though.


Hardware I am worried about.


Mother Board: Asus m5A78L-m

CPU: AMD FX-4350

Graphics: HIS Ice Q Radeon HD 7870


I do not need gaming grade graphics for my build since i will dual boot to windows for gaming, but I do need my card to work for HDMI reasons. 


I'm unsure if you have to install kexts or if it just works on it's own, never installed one before.
