  1. Installed OS X Yosemite Zone graphics issue

    I tried that and it didn't really help with the graphics issue. However, it did fix my Ethernet problem. It kept telling me that there was a cable unplugged, but now that's fixed. The graphics issue is not all that obvious until I open the Applications button or when I drag a window across the screen. I suspect that it is some kext conflict, but I'm not sure. Like I said, About this Mac identifies my graphics card as AMD R9 xxx 4096 MB.
  2. Installed OS X Yosemite Zone graphics issue

    I have Yosemite Zone somewhat installed. After install, it would boot into a gray screen with the mouse pointer on the top-left corner. About 10 seconds into that, I'd get the spinning beach ball and it wouldn't go past that screen. I rebooted my computer and typed in "-x", and it went straight into the setup assistant where I created my user account and other information. After that, I rebooted the machine, and started OS X without any additional boot flags. Again, it went into the gray screen with mouse pointer and beech ball. At this point, I suspected that it was graphics card related. I once more rebooted my machine, and this time, I typed in "-s" to get into Single user mode. I did the grafix backup all command, and rebooted the machine. At this point, the machine boots into OS X, but with graphical issues. "About this Mac" says Graphics: Display 3Mb and that's it. I've read that the Yosemite has out of the box support for R9 380 cards, but for some reason, it doesn't work well with mine. I'm also under the impression that the AMD9000Controler.kext file is what works for this card. I've used Kext Wizard to install that kext, but still nothing. I appreciate any help. Hardware info is in signature. *Edit 1* It looks like I forgot to include the AMDSupport Kext. I installed that through Kext Wizard, and after rebooting, my graphics card is now detected as AMD R9 xxx 4096MB However, I still have some graphic glitches. I moved the System Report window around the screen, and there's obvious jerking/tearing. Also, when I go to sign in, the screen flashes a bit, and then signs in. Here's a link to images I took about the issue: https://flic.kr/s/aHskmQwW2g *Edit 2* I installed the AMDRadeonVADriver.bundle file and it seemed to help a little. The animations are still laggy, but not as much as before. There's still some jerking/distortioning when I move a window across the screen, but it isn't as noticeable as it used to be. And again, there's no dock transparency. My computer is identified as a MacPro6,1, which is the trash can model Mac Pro, so it should support the transparency, right? However, there's still some lag going on.

  4. Updating AMD Hackintosh to 10.10.3

    I have a hackintosh that has: AMD FX 8350 @ Stock speed Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev 4 8GB RAM Patriot Viper (2*4gb sticks) EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3GB 160GB HDD in which OS X 10.10.1 is installed an 2 other HDDs for Windows My current Hackintosh has 10.10.1 that I installed through Niresh's Yosemite Distro. It works mostly fine, but there are some problems. I assume that that by updating to 10.10.3, most problems will be resolved. I would like to update my Hackintosh to 10.10.3 but I'm not sure how to go about it. I've read that I need a custom kernel for my AMD processor, and I believe that I downloaded the correct one. I'm assuming that kernel goes in /System/Library/Kernels In that folder, I had a file called "kernel.backup". Do I just copy the new kernel here? After I've done that, do just update through the App Store, or do I download another update? I'm using the Chameleon Boot Loader v2.3, as you can see on the screenshot file I've attached. If you need any more info about my hardware/setup, feel free to ask. Thanks. I've also included a screenshot of my current org.chameleon.Boot.plist file if that helps.
  5. OS X mostly works. Need a bit of help

    I'm still a bit confused. When I download the patched kernel, where do I put it? And after I put it wherever it needs to go, do I just update through the App Store, or would I need something else? I'm assuming that the "boot" file goes in /Mac HDD (this is what I named my boot drive). There already is a file named "boot", so I assume that I just overwrite it? Also, the "kernel" file, which is 10.7 megabytes goes in the folder Mac HDD/System/Library/Kernels/ ? There's a file named kernel.backup.
  6. OS X mostly works. Need a bit of help

    All right. Thanks for the suggestion. However, I was wondering if I can just update from the App Store, or if I have to download some other programs to successfully update. I have an AMD FX 8350 CPU, 8GB of RAM, GTX 660, Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev. 4 Motherboard. I don't know if you're able to see my "signature". I can't if I'm not signed in, but it if I am, then I can see it.
  7. So after many hours of trying various combinations, I managed to install OS X 10.10.1 using the Yosemite Zone distro. I have Windows 7 on one SSD and OS X on another HDD. Almost everything works, I just had to tweak the Audio a bit though VoodoHDA in System Preferences and had to change the org.chameleon.Boot.plist to include the "msibase=0x90" boot argument under Kernel Flags. It mainly works, but there are still some problems that I can't figure out how to fix. 1. Some programs will crash. If I open DVD Player, I get a "{Name of App}" quit unexpectedly." message. Not all programs do this. I tried Chrome and it works fine. I tried both Bit torrent and uTorrent and the installer opens and installs the program, but once I try to open it, I get the same message. Steam, Office 2011, and Adobe Flash do the same thing. Apps from the Appstore work fine though... 2. I can't access my iCloud account, nor Messages. Messages tells me that an error occurred during activation, although once it actually signed in. iCloud under System Preferences tells me I can't sign in because there was a problem verifying the identity of my "Mac". However, the App store works fine. 3. One of, my keyboards doesn't work well. I have two keyboards. One is a GSkiller Sharkoon, I'm not sure what model. Whenever I press a letter, I get a completely different one. If I press "A", OS X thinks that it is an "H". I have an old Apple Keyboard that does work fine however. This is a really annoying problem because I prefer using my GSkiller kb because it's for gaming on Windows. I tried using the Keyboard Setup Assistant, and it can't recognize my kb. 4. When I put the computer to sleep and wake it up, neither keyboard nor mouse works. The screen comes up, but I can't type or move the mouse cursor. I even tried replugging them and that doesn't work. I'm using the Chameleon Boot loader v 5.0.132 Enoch r2700 according to Chameleon Wizard. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Hello everyone. I have a custom built computer that I would like to dual boot into Windows 7 Ultimate and Mac OS X 10.8.5 (and then update to latest Yosemite). This is my hardware: 1. AMD FX 8350 2. Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev.4 Mobo 3. 8GB Patriot Viper RAM 4. EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3Gb GPU 5. Samsung SSD 120Gb 6. Seagate HDD 2Tb 7. Seagate HDD 160Gb 8. DVD Drive What I want to do: 1. Install Windows 7 Ultimate on the SSD 2. Install OS X Mountain Lion (and then update to Yosemite) on the 160Gb HDD 3. Use the 2Tb HDD as storage for programs,music, documents,etc..., and have it accessible to both OSs I am using the Niresh 10.8.5 Distro DVD. I used the DVD to boot the installer by using "amdfx" at the boot prompt, and it booted to the Installer after about 10 minutes. I formated my 160Gb HDD, customized my installation, and installed OS X on it. After about 30 minutes (The installer time isn't accurate; it stayed on less than one minute reamaing for about 5 minutes), the Install finished. I rebooted my computer and chose to boot from the OS X HDD. It took me to the Apple Screen w/ the spining circle for about a minute, then it went to a gray screen. I restarted the computer, the same thing happened. I looked online, and found this site: http://www.givemesom...stallation-265/ I tried it's first suggestion, and it worked. I was able to boot into the OS X User Setup Screen. I created my user account and all of that, and then I was taken to the desktop. However, after I restarted my computer to go install Windows 7, I booted into OS X just to be sure, and it didn't work. I get the grey Apple screen w/ the circle spinning clock wise, and then after about a minute, the hard drive stops being read from. I tried the suggestion again, but that didn't work. Now my questions are: 1. How can I successfuly install OS X Moutain Lion? 2. How can I Succesfuly dual boot Windows and Mountain Lion? I don't mind restarting the whole installation process; I just want it to work well. I'm very good with computers, it's just that this whole Hackintosh thing is kind of complex. I sincerely do appreciate your help! Thanks! ----------------------------*Edit 1*------------------------------------------ After 2 ******* days, I managed to get OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 somewhat installed. I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], the Yosemite edition. I installed some kexts and some other customizations. However, there are still some problems that I need help on. 1. The graphics are very laggy. When I open the Notification center, it turns somewhat red, and flashes. Going on Safari, esp. websites w/ animations is painfully slow. I suspect this is a driver issue. I had to use the "grafix backup all" command after installing OS X and then booting into SIngle User Mode "-s" 2. The USB ports don't work. They provide power, I verified this because my keyboard has an LED light that is on all of the time, and my flash drive's LED light is on. I can't use any of my 16 USB ports. I suspect this has to do with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] because this has never happend before. If any one can help, I really would appreciate it. ----------------------------*End of Edit 1*---------------------------------
  9. OSX Yosemite (Hackintosh Zone Distro) doesn't boot installer

    If I type it without the the dash it says, "Can't find /System/Library/Kernels/amdfx Press a key to continue..."
  10. I have: 1. AMD FX 8350 CPU at stock speed 2. Gigabyte GA990FXA-UD3 Revision 4 motherboard with the F3i Beta UEFI/BIOS update 3. EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3Gb Graphics Card (I'm using the DVI-D Connector) 4. 1 2TB Seagate HDD and 1 160Western Digital HDD (I want to install OS X on this one) I have the OS X Yosemite Zone distro on my 8Gb flash drive. My computer can boot to the screen where I'm asked to type in boot flags. Since I have an AMD FX CPU, I type -amdfx -v However, after pressing "return", it starts loading a BUNCH of files (takes about 20 seconds) , but then it restarts my computer. I don't know what the last line is because it moves very fast, and then reboots my computer. I've tried -f, -v, -x, -F, etc.. but none actually boot the system. I remember a while ago, I installed a Niresh Distro, that mostly worked, but I don't remember which one it was. Any help?
