  1. Niresh 10.8.2 on AMD Phenom II x4 995

    Sorry lad, seen the time I posted that at? Was a bit saturated with hackintosh'ness.
  2. Niresh 10.8.2 on AMD Phenom II x4 995

    Why'd you use one of those sketchy-ass distros? They are like the 'INSTALL FIND ALL DRIVERS NOW.EXE.VIRUS.TROJAN' applications for windows. I used MyHack to create a bootable USB drive for Lion and Mountain Lion, and I installed my currently running version of Mavericks with the Pandora guide Shaun wrote. Youtube shaun guide: I am rocking: Asus M2N-E DVI motherboard with an AMD Phenom II x3, MSI R6670 and four gigs of ram. Everything works after a hell of a lot of troubleshooting with a very experienced user, I just have to use my iPhone for network.
  3. Boot from the USB you made using F8 and choose the USB stick. Then you just spam the arrow keys so the bootloader gives you an option to put in boot flags. Select the drive OSX is installed on, and try those" -v GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 npci=x3000 Everything is case sensitive.
  4. Got the Mavericks DMG file saved from my last actual Mac install. It's an Asus M2N-CM DVI which I think has GB (gygabit) lan.
  5. I know you don't mate, but just letting you know what I am working with as a "noob". Yeah I can get Lion booted with either -x or GraphicsEnabler=No, but even with the correct file for the ati6000 series it does not register it. It did register on ML though. Shall I go ahead and grab the Mavericks DMG and formatting my Hackintosh again?
  6. @Shanee, Cheers man. I had it running, but I had no Multi animal ( ) support, the graphics were all glitchy, I had no sound and no ethernet :/ Currently working on Lion, but it tells me that my device in slot 1 (R6670) is not functioning. Sigh.
  7. Alright, when I got home I decided to fiddle around with the installation some more. I managed to boot to the drive using '-v npci=x3000, and everything was well. But then I tried using the unified beast, to no avail. The 5.5.5 version does not go past 'preparing installation'. I then downloaded an older version (5.0.1 to be exact), that did manage to run, but inevitably bricked the system causing kernel panics. Currently re-installing OSX for the 5th time, and leaving it that way I guess. GPU, CPU and dual screen set-up work, Ethernet/Sound do not. Any ideas on how to fix the ethernet/sound cards? I tried using Kext-Utility, but using that with the downloaded kekx's did not work either.
  8. Hey Phill, Cheers man. I'll build a Lion rom as soon as I get back home, hopefully that'll make the sucker boot.
  9. Hi lads. I am definitely new to 'making' the so called 'Hackintosh'. (Literally started yesterday, and only just finished the two tests so I could post start this topic.) TLDR: AMD Phenom II x3, Asus mobo, R6670 (currently disabled), 4Gb RAM, OSX10.8.3 Myhack, Bios on AHCI, GUID partition with proper filesystem, AMD Mountain Lion kernel files patched, installation completed, flashing underscore on boot. --- After not touching my PC for a couple of weeks, I decided to boot it back up and fiddle around with it for a bit. Freshly installed 7 x64, had everything up and running with a few tweaks here and there, perfect. I bought the thing multiple years ago, and after upgrading the hardware a few times of the past years, it still manages to crank out pretty serious performance. But yeah, I wanted more. So I looked into Vmware/Parralels with OSX. Turned out it was possible on an AMD machine, but only with the right kernel files. So I tried, to no avail. Specs (from a dusty memory of last night, just got to class but I can't let this go), AMD Phenom II x3 (Triple core, was free). Asus Mobo, no clue which model, AM3 socket I believe, 128MB onboard Nvidia {censored} graphics. MSI AMD R6670 (Took it out, figured that the graphics were not supported by the installation, only to just read that I could have deleted a file from the installer). 4Gb of RAM (max this mobo will take). So, after creating a bootable OSX 10.8.3 usb stick using MyHack, and dusting off an old hard drive, I decided to start the installation proces. I downloaded the latest AMD ML Kernel file. BIOS S-ata settings have been set to AHCI mode. I managed to figure out that I needed to boot with npci=x3000 using -v -x commands at the Chameleon bootlauncher, and managed to get into the installation after taking the graphics card (r6670) out. After formatting the drive to OSX Journaled with a GUID partition, the installation actually followed trough and finished. And of course, after going trough all that, it would not boot. I got the pretty blinking cursor. So, naturally, I used our best friend on the web, and figured out that I needed to replace the 'mach_kernel' file that was installed with the base 10.8.3 by the file that I had on my usb stick. Did that. I also checked the partitions with Fdisk, and even though it only gave me 'unknown' results by using 'P' on the selected disk, after doing a ListDisk, it showed me that OSX was installed on Disk1P2. So I set f to 2, and rebooted. Still no cigar. I would appreciate some input by someone more experienced. Cheers, Lex
