GTX 760 - No QE/CI - Beta 3

17 September 2014 - 01:11 AM

Hi all! Long time no see!


Yesterday i bought a new hdd and wanted to test yosemite. So i downloaded the offical beta public which i think is the third one.

So, renamed the file to 'Install OS X 10.10 Developer Preview' (This way MacPawn recognize the file) and made a usb installation.


In the first installation, i had this screen after the install progress:


Rebooted the machine, and just for curious i boot from the hdd (which i installed yosemite) and the system loaded, but i can't get QE/CI (Using clover) with my nvidia GTX 760. (And with the developer preview i had qe/ci perfectly good).


And, if i install the chameleon version for yosemite i get this error when i boot:




So, if too long; didn't read: Can't enable graphic qe/ci with clover, and can't boot the system with chameleon. So i can't get a "semi-stable" yosemite beta 3. (As far as i remember, developer preview 1 worked fine)

Goodbye and thanks!


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?


Video for better explanation: 


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
