here's a pretty bare config.plist you can start out with and go from there:

replace your config.plist with this: https://github.com/R..._1600x900.plist


and see if that helps you get booting again

In Topic: need help to choose the right motherboard

Since Intel moved their GPU on to their CPUs instead of on the motherboard, Intel graphics support comes down to the CPU you use, not the motherboard you put your CPU in. Since you have an i5 it will work fine. You didn't mention if it is Sandy Bridge i5 (HD3000) or Ivy Bridge i5 (HD4000) but you should be able to get either of those to work.


I looked at the 3 links you gave and I am not sure if I would recommend any of them. The Zotac model looks like it was probably pulled from an existing machine or something because I can't find that specific motherboard model anywhere. Zotac does sell a a couple different H61 ITX boards but none of those match this one at all, so I can't look up whether you will have good driver support for LAN and audio.


The 2 different Asrock motherboards both have Realtek gigabit LAN and ALC892 for audio which you can easily get working in OS X, which is a really good thing. :) The problem is they might not come with their own I/O shield, which you should always use with motherboards. The H77 one says "Package contains motherboard only" and the B75M one says "Das Motherboard ist ohne Zubehör, so dass keine Blende". You didn't mention how you plan on handling these with an iMac G4 case so I can't really help you with that. If you are planning to cut out a space in the back and place the I/O shield there then I can see that working. You will just either have to buy a version of either of these 2 motherboards that come with an I/O shield, or buy an I/O shield separately, like for example: http://io-shield.de/...77m-itx-bracket

In Topic: Installing MAC OS on AMD A6 6400k. Currently i am a WINDOWS 10 user.

Looking at the CPU specs, it does support SSE4.1 instructions which is needed to run 10.12 Sierra.


You can get premade image for AMD CPUs where you can use Transmac in Windows to image it onto USB: https://forum.amd-os...ads/sierra.html


If you want to or need to create the USB install media yourself, you'll need access to an existing computer or virtual machine running OS X. If that is your case, then you can take a look at this: http://www.insanelym...ll-preparation/ making Sierra install media is more or less the same, you just need to use the provided Extra folder and USB fixes for Sierra that you can get from amd-osx.com.


With your question regarding installing the new kernel, you are simply replacing the vanilla kernel file with the one you want to use. Take a look at this page: http://www.insanelym...ll-preparation/. You would do the same thing with your install media if the one that comes on the premade image doesn't work, or if you are making your install media  from scratch.


(side note to Shaneee: there's no need to use -R (recursive) when you're copying a file or multiple files by themselves separate from a folder, the kernel file in this case. yours truly, nawcom the unix shell syntax nazi :-P)


APU graphics aren't supported so you need to get a supported graphics card. And running macOS without a supported graphics card pretty much makes it worthless. You can still boot up the OS and get into the desktop though, it's just that graphics will generally be choppy. A number of macOS programs need Core Image / Quartz Extreme support (graphics acceleration) in order to work correctly. After all, there's really no such thing as a real Mac that comes with an unsupported graphics card.


For your wireless card, you need to be specific about the model if you are asking if it is supported.

E6600 is a Core 2 Duo, not a Core 2 Quad (there's no such thing as a Core 2 Duo Quad), and it says it doesn't support SSE4.1 So you're out of luck. No, it's not compatible with Sierra. If by emulator you're talking about SSE4.1 emulation - I told you there isn't a patch for that made yet for XNU kernels.
