    Broadcom BCM4313 using Virtual Machine, possible?

    Dr. Hurt, Thank you so much for the explanation. By the way, how do I extend the USB Wireless Adapter's scan coverage? The Wi-Fi adapter is so poor, can't get high signals if it's far. If I use my BCM4313 on Windows, even though it's far, it still got 2 or 3 level. Any suggestion?

    Generating DSDT to use on Hackintosh

    Well, you can go and find patches for your motherboard and patch it up to your DSDT. Simple

    Generating DSDT to use on Hackintosh

    Howdy everyone! This guide is perfect for you guys that are going to install Hackintosh (in this guide, I would say "Mac") on a PC/notebook that is not really popular and difficult to find out the right DSDT for your PC. Requirements: - Windows 7 or later installed on your PC directly, by "directly" I mean full-install, not VM. - Mac (of course). - MaciASL or DSDT Editor or EvOSx86's DSDTFixer (may preferable). - AIDA64 for Windows. (I would suggest AIDA64 Extreme) Note: AIDA64 is currently on version 4. Look out for version 3, because ACPI Tools has been removed on version 4 and later. The steps: 1. Get to Windows. Run AIDA64. 2. Right-click the AIDA64's status bar and click on "ACPI Tools". 3. Another new window will be opened. Now click "Save DSDT". Note: If you want to save SSDT, XSDT, or other, you may want to click "Save Table" and choose. 4. New file will be saved onto your computer. It should be "acpi_dsdt.bin". 5. Rename the new file to "DSDT.aml". 6. Boot up to your Mac. 7. Open DSDT.aml using MaciASL (or what you use). 8. Click "Compile" and look for errors. There should not be any errors. 9. If there is no errors, continue and save the DSDT. If you want to add some code, add it up and Compile again. 10. Once your DSDT.aml is saved without errors, copy it to "/Extra" and reboot. 11. Congratulations! Your Mac should now boot using the right DSDT. Troubleshooting If you get Kernel Panics on reboot, simply use DSDT=NULL boot flags on the bootloader and boot up. Once Mac boots up without DSDT, check the problems using MaciASL (or what you use). Good luck!

    Stuck on Apple logo with no spinning wheel.

    Try to browse your install disk, go to /S/L/E and remove all kexts with the name that begins with AppleIntelHD* , AppleIntelSNB*, AMD*, ATI*, NVDA* Boot up with GraphicsEnabler=No. Your installer might not be in a good resolution, but when the mac is installed on your Pc, when you install Intel graphics kext, it will be 1366x768. I'm experiencing it too, but my problem is solved now.

    Broadcom BCM4313 using Virtual Machine, possible?

    Dr. Hurt, Thank you so much for the quick reply. But, my laptop is an Acer Aspire E1-471G. Are those Wi-Fi cards whitelisted or blacklisted by my laptop. I'm running OS X Mavericks 10.9.0 by the way. Or, maybe, can we just change BCM4313's device ID to other cards so it can be recognized by Mac? Or maybe, we could just patch the DSDT for BCM4313 to work? Has anyone have their BCM4313 work? In my case, mine is Acer Nplify 802.11 b/g/n with BCM4313 chip.
  6. Howdy everybody! I am using BCM4313 -- which is unlucky, because it's not supported by Hackintosh. I installed Mavericks on my Acer Aspire E1-471G and patched my DSDT, everything works perfect, except ELAN Touchpad and Wi-Fi. But that's not the main thing. Can we just simply use Windows Virtual Machine that supports BCM4313 on a Hackintosh that does not support BCM4313. Means that: Hackintosh --> (inside Hackintosh) Windows VM (using VMware Fusion) --> (inside Windows) Recognize BCM4313 and use Drivers for Windows --> search for networks inside Windows --> and transfer the internetconnection host-only from Windows VM to Hackintosh. Now the problem is Windows is not recognizing the BCM4313. Can we just make Windows VM directly check out our laptop specifications without having to read from Hackintosh's system specification (which happened not able to recognize BCM4313) ? Thanks in advance.
  7. bstones94... I can't really understand what your problem is. But, I have tried to use the software you are using (one of the software used to create Vanilla Hackintosh Install Disk, another creation from a person that is blacklisted on InsanelyMac) and it fails me. I recommend you to use myHack. Many people including me have tried myHack and it works like charm. Therefore, backup your datas. Boot up your pen drive and open Disk Utility. Let's start all from scratch. Just re-format your your HDD as MBR with 3 partition (Mac, Windows, Data) and format. If you think you still don't want to start from scratch, then reply to this topic with "a little bit more compact" post and give me the MAJOR PROBLEMS. After MAJOR, then MINOR. Okay? I'm just 14-years old boy. Good luck.

    Help: Screen resolution suddenly missing

    ketxorange... Samsung SyncMaster monitor... Isn't it a cylindrical monitor (CRT)? No problems though. But, the default screen resolution of nowadays monitors (including external LCD/LED and built-in Notebook monitor) is 1366x768 pixels. No need to worry. I know what software you used to build the Vanilla Mavericks Install Disk, I would recommend you to use myHack though. It is simpler. Just select your InstallESD.dmg and then it will automatically format and copy all the required files to install Mavericks as Vanilla. Looking into your problems, I assume the screen resolution is bad from the Bootloader, right? You didn't mention your Bootloader, I just don't know what you're using. I am using Chameleon 2.2, and it is working fine with some theme. Try to use the Chameleon Wizard. I have experienced this before. I boot up using 1024x768 pixels resolution from the Chameleon Bootloader, and my Hackintosh boots up with goddamn messed display. Stretched display. So, I used Chameleon Wizard to change my Chameleon's graphics resolution, and rebooted. My Chameleon looks very nice with 1366x768 pixels resolution, and so the Apple Logo and the Hackintosh. Good luck!

    Acer Aspire E1-471G Hackintosh Problems

    Okay, problem number 1 is now solved. I can now run OS X Mavericks 10.9 GM on my laptop. Problem number 4 is also solved now. No more flickering on my Hackintosh. Everything looks just good. Mavericks has now detected my display adapter, the Intel HD Graphics 3000 and NVIDIA GeForce 710M (the System Information says my display is "Generic Display" instead of "spdisplay_displays", and the monitor picture is now changed into MacBook Pro's picture instead of a black monitor). But, still no brightness and other problems listed above. Any help?

    Can't boot into Mountain Lion

    pashoni, There's one thing that I need to tell you. If you're installing OS X from a clean slate--say version 10.8.0--then you have 10.8.0. If you're trying to update to 10.8.4--for example--using the combo update or supplemental update, then boom! You will get a kernel panic that you can't even fix it using myFix or Terminal. You must re-install OS X from a clean slate, again. If you want to get 10.8.4, then download the full 10.8.4 image from the Mac App Store or other "not recommended" piracy website--which is about 4 - 5 GB--and then create a new bootable disk and boot the disk, then select your primary OS X partition and then install it there to update without losing your datas. So, have you got the dual-boot working by now?

    Can't boot into Mountain Lion

    Good choice, but just don't try to use EasyBCD for the second time. Format your hard drive clearly, and then boot up your installation disk. Note: If you're stuck on the Apple logo when booting up the installation disk, tell me. Check your error code using the verbose mode (-v) and tell me, because I've experienced it before and I've fix it. The error code for me is actually [iOBluetoothHCIController][start] -- completed.
  12. If you can boot into Chameleon, try to use these flags: "GraphicsEnabler=No -v -x -f" and see the error code (the very very last line displayed and delays the boot for a really long time). Once you've got the error code, try to search more about it by using "our best friend on the web". Ah yes I forgot. Mountain Lion isn't fully compatible with AMD-based Hackintoshes. The most stable one is Lion but with no distros. Install it using myHack. If you're installing Snow Leopard, use a distro.

    Can't boot into Mountain Lion

    First thing that I want to correct is that Chameleon, Chimera, or other bootloaders were not installed on partition, which consists of Windows' and Mac's. But, it was installed on the hard drive and set as the first step to boot before any operating systems which allows you to choose which partition to boot (like Windows, Mac, or Linux). Every hard drive have bootloaders, even if you don't see them. If you install Windows only, your computer will automatically boot into Windows like usual, the bootloader is the one with black screen (maybe with "underscore") right after the motherboard screen. Installing Chameleon or Chimera is just simply replaces the previous bootloader with their's. So, my laptop is now dual-booting Windows 8.1 Pro and OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 (which have some problems, if you can help me, it will be very helpful. Go to here to help me) seamlessly using the Chimera bootloader. Things that I can conclude from my method of installation is: 1. To dual-boot, you must firstly have a very clean hard drive. Nothing in it. Not a single file or OS. Just empty hard drive. 2. You must set your BIOS to boot in AHCI mode. 3. You must have access to other Mac (if you're not doing iATKOS) to build a bootable drive. 4. You must firstly install Mac, and format your hard drive into partitions with GUID Partition Method and for Windows', format it as MS-DOS (FAT). 5. Let it install. Next step is installing bootloader. Boot into Mac using the bootable drive. Mac will not work with DOS. 6. Now, after installing bootloader, boot your Windows' installation disc/disk. 7. Format the previous MS-DOS (FAT) drive(s) into Windows NT File System (NTFS). 8. Let Windows install. 9. Reboot your PC. 10. Boom! Dual-boot! If I install Mac right after Windows, these are the problems: 1. You can't format your partition back to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). It will stay as NTFS. Because Windows uses the Master Boot Record (MBR) method. 2. You will get annoying "Errors occurred while trying to start up your computer. Pausing 5 seconds...". (even though it doesn't do anything). 3. Some GPUs will return an error code, like stuck in [iOBluetoothHCI] -- something. 4. And more upcoming problems. So, I suggest you to go and buy an external hard drive (if you have then don't need to) to backup anything you want and need, then start from a clean slate. Good luck! By the way, why would you boot Mac using EasyBCD, and Chameleon? I didn't even use EasyBCD. It just simply mess up your boot orders.

    Can't boot into Mountain Lion

    boot0:done is just a console message that tells you the very very first boot on the hard disk drive is completed (which is the bootloader, Chameleon). I am using Chimera actually and it worked fine until now, just looking for the solutions on my hackintosh, but that's not the point. Try using Chimera, go to tonymacx86's website and download #####, then on ##### select Bootloader and select the latest Chimera. You can set your themes again afterwards. Or, on the bootloader, you can try using flags like -f to disable cache, -v to boot in verbose, and GraphicsEnabler=Yes|No to disable graphics support, or -x to boot in safe mode Try to use the verbose and see what error it gives. Or, you can try to rebuilt your installation disk with myHack. When your system boots the myHack disk, simply go to Utilities > MyHack and then run the myFix targeting on your Macintosh hard drive
  15. Hello, I've just installed OS X ML 10.8.0 on my Acer Aspire E1-471G notebook, with below specifications: Intel Core i3-2348M -- Sandy Bridge -- 2 Cores Intel HD Graphics 3000 with NVIDIA GeForce 710M GPU 4 GB DDR3 Memory Broadcom Wireless LAN 802.11 BCM4313 Realtek LAN 81xx Realtek HDA ALC269 EA40_HC Motherboard ELAN PS/2 Smart-Pad touchpad (Hardware ID: ACPI\VEN_ETD&DEV_0501) Generic PNP Monitor (Hardware ID: MONITOR\LGD038F) Look, I am very noob about DSDT patches or what is it, but if it's the only way for me to get rid of these problems, I will do it. So, my problem lists is: 1. (A question actually) I can't install OS X 10.9 Mavericks on this laptop, in the middle of installation (about 11 min remaining) when it's extracting Essentials.pkg, the installer encountered an error. So, I install ML then. Why is it that way? 2. I can't get my BCM4313 WLAN working, even after I installed AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext (which on TextWrangler says pci(something)_4313 -- it's supported actually). Please somebody upload for me this kext, or tell me how to DSDT patch, if it's necessary 3. I can't get my ALC269 HDA working, tried so many AppleHDA.kext and VoodooHDA.kext and IOAudioFamily.kext and so many kexts, none of them are working. Does it needs DSDT patch? I haven't tried, if yes, please tell me how to do it 4. If I open the Notification Center, it always have some red-flicker on the scrollbar and if I open Safari, on the Top Sites page, it flickers EVERY TIME, so MANY TIMES and SLOWS DOWN my computer. Not just on Safari, but also on Launchpad, and other apps. How can I fix it? 5. I can't change my laptop brightness. No slider on System Preferences. Every one minute = -1%. How can I fix this? Reducing brightness might save A LOT of battery. Please, please somebody tell me how to patch or fix it, because I'm using this at school. (P.S: Windows: 3 hours and 41 minutes, Mac: 1 hour and 24 minute -- it only says like that, but when I let it on like that, boom! 30 minutes, run out of battery and shuts down immediately) 6. I can't install any PKGs on my hackintosh (okay, some can be installed). It always encounter me that some errors were encountered during the installation that makes Installer.app fails. I can't install MacFUSE, NTFS-3G, Java for OS X (Standalone, not from Apple Update), SmoothMouse, and more coming up) How to fix it? It's getting really annoying that this INSTALLER.APP always fails on me. 7. As I mentioned above, I am using ELAN Touchpad, how to enable the multi-finger? (it supports multi finger gestures, it's a smart-pad anyway) 8. I can't update my OS X, if I update to 10.8.5, it success, but when rebooting, I get a kernel panic that I cannot troubleshoot anymore using the installation disk (normally I can, using Terminal and myFix) as I have to reinstall Mac. 9. When my laptop comes to sleep time, it sleeps, because when I pressed/clicked any button, it asked me for password, but while sleeping, the screen IS WHITE ??? It just reducing my battery VERY QUICKLY. How exactly to fix it? Lastly, if someone can do it for me, I'll be very thankful and grateful for it. Can anybody upload for me, the driver kexts that are compatible for my laptop? If my questions are too much, I'm sorry. I live in a country with different time zone, so I just ask everything I want and the next morning, I hope I can get my answers. Please answer my questions, this hackintosh is really something to me THANK YOU SO MUCH Regards, Phillmont PHILLMONT-PC.txt
