Mission Control, slow motion when holding shift

14 July 2014 - 04:51 PM

First of all, this is not a problem (i think), this only happen when i hold the shift key (At least in a pc keyboard, i don't know if in mac is called the same)


The thing is when i'm on mission control, if i keep pressed the shift key and select and app it will bring up but very slow. This only happens with the shift, not with command nor options (alt)


I don't know if this was all the time, i discovered it in my hackintosh and with 10.9.4. Does anyone knows this? It has a function?

Kernel panics (Unable to find driver)

29 April 2014 - 01:56 AM

Hello, how are you?


Sometime ago i had my hackintosh perfectly working with this settigns: i5 3570k, GA-Z77M-D3H and the onboard video, the HD4000.


This month 2 things happened. I bought a MSI GTX 760 2GB, and i bought a new 8GB thumb drive.


When i bought the graphic card i plugged it in, and run osx. Everything went perfect. I didn't have to change anything. Working out of the box.


Then i had to format the hdd where osx were installed, so now i wanted to install everything again, but i have too much problems.


First, i tried with Niresh, the distro that i was using before. When i boot, with or without bootflags (I tried with -x, GraphicsEnabler=No/yes) i get a kp:


Most of the time i get: 'Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI"\'



But once i got: 'Process 1 exec of /sbin/launched failed'. I think it was only once, but, it is worth to say it.



So today i got frustated, leaved niresh in one side, and downloaded a osx installation for vmware and downloaded orginal osx from the store.

First i used ##### and in the middle of the install it says it cannot complete the process, and in the corner on the screen i get a notification 'Disk not ejected properly'


Then, i tried again with myhack, and say the same. Disk not ejected properly.


Also tried with a second usb (only 4gb) just for the bootloader. I had clover and chameleon. When i used clover it said: Error loading drivers. And with chameleon the system restats by itself. It doesn't even load the gray screen.


The usb works fine, i can write, read and delete files from it, and also i did it a low format.


Do you think it's a ubs drive isssue?

Unable to find driver for this platform acpi

Hi, about 3 months ago i finally made i very successfull installation, the hardware was:


Intel® Core™ i5-3570k @ 3.8Ghz

Gigabyte GA Z77M-D3H

Kingston HyperX 4GB DDR3 @ 1666Mhz

Intel HD4000 @ 64MB [VGA]

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm
Samsung SyncMaster P2350 23" VGA
CoolerMaster Extreme Series 500W
And now, the other i bought a brand new GTX 760. So i installed it and run osx. I didn't have to do anything, working out of the box.
But today my hdd broke and i have to make a new installation in a new one, so i made a booteable usb with transmac, but when i boot i get the following kp:
So, i unplugged the gtx 760 and tried again with the onboard hd4000, and then the same message. Also, set my bios settigns to default. I don't know what is causing it.

Memory problems - Spinning ball of death

27 February 2014 - 01:52 AM

Hi, how are you? First of all in my signature are my specs. But, i bring it up here for you!


Intel® Core™ i5-3570k @ 3.8Ghz

Gigabyte GA Z77M-D3H

Kingston HyperX 4GB DDR3 @ 1666Mhz

Intel HD4000 @ 64MB [VGA]

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm
Samsung SyncMaster P2350 23" VGA
CoolerMaster Extreme Series 500W
The thing is that, with a few open apps like 'Chrome' with one or two tabs, and a music app like 'Vox' the system sometimes hangs. The system is not slow by itself. The transitions and all are pretty smoth and fast. But, for excample if a do right click on the mouse to open the context menu, it takes 5 sec aprox to open. Too much spinning ball. Is it waiting for free memory?
Also the apps take too long to open.
Is a low-memory problem? I'm planning to get a dedicated video card, so all the 4GB memory is for the system, and not share it with the hd4000. This will solve something?
PS: Still not updated to 1.9.2 because i don't want to use the system like that. Do you think it may fix that?
Thanks in advance

[Guide][10.9] Enable HD4000 VGA

08 January 2014 - 03:49 AM


Hi there! After months of trying to enable the VGA Port of the HD4000 without editing the FrameBufferCapri (Which didn't worked for me) i finally figured out.



1. What do we need?
  • A Mavericks USB installer
  • 1GB+ pendrive

2. Preparation


In the 1GB+ pendrive install clover. I installed it with Bootdisk Utility in Windows. Which installed me Clover r2082. So this version will work for sure, i didn't test another version.


3. Installation


Now reboot, and put ONLY the Mavericks installer pendrive and boot from it. Then, install mavericks. I booted without bootflags, but if you can't, try with "GraphicsEnabler=No -x"


4. First Boot


When the installation finish, put both pendrives, and make sure that now you're booting from the 1GB+ pendrive where you have clover. In the clover screen, press 'O' (Letter O (stands for Option), not the number 0 ), and then go to 'Graphcis Option' and enable 'Inject EDID' and enable 'Inject Intel' (Inject intel should be enabled, but make sure that it is)


5. Perfect first boot


If everything went ok, now you should be setting up your osx installation, and also you will be using native resolution. And for our surprise, after finishing the setup, QE/CI should be enabled too.


6. Installing clover


Now everything it's great, but, clover it's not installed yet on the HDD, it's still on the pendrive. So, if you unplug your pendrive, you cannot boot osx anymore. So, now, download Clover_v2k_r2082.zip. I used this version and it worked. I don't know if other versions work. Then, you also have to download and install Clover Configurator Setup


7. Clover Configurator


Now this is up to you. You only have to enable Inject EDID and Inject Intel. But if you want, i attach my config.plist for you.


8. Enjoy


Now you should be fine for reboot without the pendrives and boot directly from the HDD with your HD4000 VGA port working.
