    How do you use custom kernels for install?

    oh so I would place the kernel on the root of the installation media, meaning the install disk or usb?

    wait what about kernels, since someone is actually responding somewhere. On my AMD, I am running an fx series processor, and a few months ago a kernel was released for it. How do I use the downloaded kernel? I am using Niresh.

    cn-0g679r-73604-926-0402 is my board's serial number. It's possible to use 2 usb sticks to install something like aitkos? one for distro and one for chameleon? I don't have dvds big enough for full aitkos install QQ
  6. Here are my specs. Mother Board: Asus m5A78L-m CPU: AMD FX-4350 RAM: 8GB 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?

    My inspiron is the dual core one, if I get it working, would I be able to upgrade my processor the the q6600 quad core model? It says it will work on the board, and if i replaced it, does osx auto install drivers for upgraded hardware or would i have to reinstall? Still trying to figure out how to use the extra files like DSDT and the others to install.

    Since I didn't have luck with my beasty amd machine, I'm going to try and turn my old dell inspiron into a hackintosh to get me by until I can build a better one. I am wondering what distro these guys used to get it working. iatkos?
  12. http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/1857135 It shows here people have been successful with my generation of processor. Is there something I am doing wrong here?
  13. Well I was trying to find a osx install that will work with my new fx-4350 processor, I keep having auto reboots in the beginning of install for both niresh 10.7.3 and niresh 10.8.2. So I was wondering if I managed to find a version that will support my cpu I could install my 10.7.5 manufacturer drivers for my compatible sound card, video card, and wireless card. So far I can't even get to mac logo. Mother Board: Asus m5A78L-m CPU: AMD FX-4350 Is my processor just too new to be supported?
  14. Done a lot of google searching and can't find anything.
  15. :EDIT is this my problem? I found this in AMD kernel section Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Bronzovka has just compiled a 32 OR 64-bit kernel space 64-bit user land 10.7.4 kernel. With the arch=i386 flag, GPUs should be working with no graphics issues! This kernel seems to have the instant reboot problem too on Bulldozer/Piledriver. The only working 64-bit kernel for Lion at the moment is the 10.7.4 legacy_kernel compiled by IiTz ShAnE. This kernel requires the -nossse3bit bootflag. " considering my CPU is one of the new piledrivers"
