  1. So it seems I can't boot properly when using Clover from my HDD (just goes from the boot menu to a black screen). The Clover on my flash drive however boots the installed Mavericks. Edit: Got it. Not entirely sure how though...
  2. Thanks for the links! I managed to get a hold of a Mavericks 10.9.2 install image, set it up in VMware, download 10.9.3 from the App Store, and get it copied to a flash drive, along with setting up Clover. I'm installing it currently, but so far there wasn't any issues
  3. I used this guide to make a Mavericks install USB: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298027-guide-aio-guides-for-hackintosh/?do=findComment&comment=2019599 Enabled Turbo and SpeedStep, the installer booted without issue. Disabled Turbo and SpeedStep, installer still booted fine. How do I verify if Clover is using any kernel patches? Would I just look at the plist file I generated when I was making the USB?
  4. Just adding my experience here; on my ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Killer motherboard, I had to enable the USB Compatibility Patch under BIOS settings in order for VMWare Player to see my flash drive at all (didn't see it in either the USB 2.0 or 3.0 ports).
  5. In my BIOS, I have all power saving tech disabled (including Turbo and SpeedStep), and a fixed clock rate. Would I still need the disabled PM kernel patch? Or should I just re-enabled some of those features in order to test for unlocked MSRs?
  6. I have the Fatal1ty H97 Killer board; do I just need to run PMPatch in order to verify whether it works or not?
  7. It's been a while since I really messed with OS X, but I recently setup a pretty decent Intel machine, and was interested in giving it a try. I use an ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Killer motherboard with an Intel i5-4670K CPU, and a MSI R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC GPU. Is it possible to natively-run OS X with such hardware? I imagine the CPU and GPU are fine, but the motherboard has be concerned. I haven't done any searching myself, so please forgive me if there's some thread somewhere with instructions for that particular motherboard or something (although if I understand right, that motherboard is relatively new to the market).

    Radeon HD 7850 Support?

    I've skimmed through these forums a few times looking for an answer to this, and haven't really found anything solid. I've been wanting to install OS X on my desktop, but I absolutely require hardware-acceleration. I have a MSI R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC (Radeon HD 7850). Is this GPU supported at all on any version of OS X? If so, is it just supported right after install, or do I have to go through stuff to make it work?
  9. Well I had OS X 10.6.8 running, my GPU was working with QE/CI without anything special being done, ethernet was working, but I broke my install when I decided to use "not-single" beast (lol) to install some ALC892 Realtek HDA drivers... It decided to delete everything in my /E/E folder (including dsmos)
  10. I installed Snow Leopard to my AMD desktop (I followed some other guide though, it involved using a working Leopard install, and then installing SL from Leopard to a partition, installing the bootloader, kernel, etc) I'm on 10.6 though (I only had access to a 10.6 disc, not 10.6.3) and I'm "hoping" I can simply run a combo update to 10.6.3, but in any case I'll find out in the near future At the moment, I'm using modbin test kernel 7 and Chameleon RC4 with dmos.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and OpenHaltRestart.kext (I got rid of the UUID kext and SMBIOS.plist file after I updated from RC2 to RC4). I plan on installing the 10.6.3 Legacy Kernel and then the combo update. Any feedback on this would be nice Edit: Installed combo update from 10.6 to 10.6.3 without any special things being ran and it installed just fine I used legacy kernel as well (I was able to boot this kernel on 10.6 as well) Now the next task is to get to 10.6.8 and then fix my audio and graphics
  11. I'm currently running iDeneb 10.5.8 on the hardware in my sig, and although this is a temporary OS (i plan to go to Snow Leopard), I noticed that my hard drive sounds like it just shuts off at times. I think the first time it happened I wasn't able to move the mouse, but it became responsive again a short time later. The second time it happened, I was still able to use the mouse. And it just happened again while I was typing this. Mouse was unresponsive for a short time, and then a short time later it became responsive again and then a warning came up telling me of unsafe device removal (I think it was the flash drive I have in). I have the Hard Drive sleep option disabled in system settings. Also during iDeneb setup, I didn't check anything specific to my HDD or SATA chipset (there was something there for AHCI, but I left it alone)
  12. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=269841&st=0 This seems like a pretty nice guide I have an AMD system, and I'm currently trying to install SL via the ModUSB method mentioned in that thread (currently I'm obtaining SL, but I have to wait for instructions on what to do with ModUSB)
  13. Got it working, but I'm going through a reinstall currently to see if I can find the right packages for ethernet and stuff. I had to boot with busratio=20 though or else I got some RTC error then KP. As for the instructions, I'll have to DL the files on another computer and transfer them over on my desktop via a flash drive or something, but currently the desktop itself does not have internet. Does it also matter what version of SL I use for the install? Would a retail image of 10.6 work just fine? Also if I read right, I could use this guide to get a working install of Snow Leopard, and then possibly update to Lion later?
  14. Na I don't have this machine currently (traded it away a while back). I'm trying to install to an AMD machine: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2101614 I have a copy of iDeneb v1.6 10.5.8 lite downloading currently that I'm "hoping" can install just fine for now, but I'll find out in about 2 hours
  15. Hmm, I have no real problem with linux commands (well, if given the commands, I could run them I mean ) but I was trying to get a OS X distro running first. I have "Niresh12495-Lion-10.7.3-V2" and I followed the instructions to put it on flash drives, I'm able to select the Lion install image but I just freeze during the startup for some reason. I have -v enabled, and I'm seeing nothing that would cause a lock up :/ (only thing of slight concern I'm seeing is some USB stuff about sleep).
