    The laptop is from 2005, so about 12 (probably near 13) years old. Actually, it came pre-installed with XP and it was surprisingly snappy.
    I actually just tried installing Leopard and it installed with no problems! It is surprisingly fast, but Leopard can even run on a 867MHz G4, so that's not too much of a surprise - I'm just not sure what is faster... A 1.2GHz Pentium M or an 867MHz G4. During the installation of Leopard, I noticed some kexts were available for it (I think patched AppleACPIPlatform + AppleAPIC). Of course they're for Leopard, but AppleACPIPlatform is the exact kext I had issues with, so just out of curiosity, I put them on the SL installer, and I'm seeing what happens right now.
    Thank you very much for the advice!
    I'm actually not going to be using this machine at all for everyday use, although it would be pretty awesome to do some basic stuff on it. I have many modern computers, including a triple boot (Windows 7 Ultimate, Ubuntu, and macOS Sierra) Hackintosh laptop with an i3-6100U, 128GB SSD, and 8GB RAM. I also have a 27" 2011 iMac, and a gaming PC that I plan on making a Hackintosh as well. Here's the reason why I want to do this: It's a 7" "laptop" that is really a UMPC (ultra-mobile personal computer). I got the idea that it would be super cool to run OS X on such a small machine. Here, I attached two pictures, one with a DVD on the keyboard to give you an idea of how small this now Hackintosh is.
    Thanks for the reply!

    SL 10.6 is really not suitable for this platform. Leopard 10.5 would be a better choice although I still have doubts about any likely support for this ancient chipset and graphics chip: it's got ICH4-M I/O controller + Extreme 2 graphics... Maybe Tiger, but really, what's the point?
    I have Leopard running perfectly on a 2005 Pentium M platform but it's fitted with the 915GM chipset (i.e. GMA900), not one of its predecessors such as yours. I could never get SL to run 100% properly on it and, God!, have I tried hard... Always had trouble with the ICH6-M controller in IDE mode at installation and, of course, no support for GMA900. I'm pretty sure you have Zero (0) chance to run SL on that dinosaur.
    I don't want to ruin your high hopes but this laptop of yours is just what it is: very very old and totally obsolete. It's what, 15years old or so? You would hardly be able to run Win XP on it...
    My advise is not to waste any time on this.
    With regards to your comparison between booting the installer vs. the installed OS and your subsequent expectations, please note that the installer boots on a very minimal set of drivers. The installed OS boots with a very different setup.

    We can certainly help, but you're going to have to be a bit more specific about what the issue is.
    The latest revision of Clover can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
    You will need nVidia Web Drivers for your 1050, and Intel HD 630 can be made to work with the various patches around the place.

    Yeah sorry my friend seeing as the 750 Ti is a Maxwell Card rather than the typical 7xx series Kepler architecture it is not compatible with OS X Mavericks. Maxwell support was introduced in 10.10 Yosemite, so if you want to run your computer with full GPU performance you will have to run 10.10 or above.
    Unless you get yourself a Kepler GPU or one of the 7000 series AMD cards (includes R9 2xx rebrand) you will not be able to run Mavericks.

    Don't waste your time; OS X has no native support for BayTrail platforms and no support whatsoever for BayTrail graphics. This Asus of yours is not suitable for Hackintoshing purposes.

    I see no reason why it wouldn't work. Probably a bad card. As long as the drivers are right (perhaps this is the problem? I don't know whether you can get proper drivers for Mac cards on Windows) it should work; it's pretty much the same as a normal card except for probably the vBIOS. You could always try flashing a PC vBIOS onto it. Just make a backup first.

    It isn't working because you aren't using the AMD Kernel. You can find the appropriate AMD kernel for your version of Mac OS X here.
    Rename it to mach_kernel and put it on your root directory.

    Thanks for the reply, 0000-1248 !
    Yep. I imagined a reinstall of Chameleon would do the trick. So I grabbed the latest version && performed a reinstall (upgrade, as Chameleon puts it).
    Anyway. The (re)install went to the last bit, and when finished. Said it failed, and suggested trying again. So I did; again, and again, and...
    Long story short; I gave up on Chameleon, and let Clover do it's deed. Following that, I sent
    diskutil list
    which returned a $hitload of additional partitions!
    Well. Guess it's time to start the entire process over again. But not using Chameleon for the bootloading!
    Thanks again, 0000-1248 for taking the time to reply -- greatly appreciated!

    You haven't installed Chameleon properly. The cause of this is either:
    1. You installed Chameleon improperly (which is to say you didn't copy the right bootx files)
    2. You have had OS X on that HDD before, but it has been formatted and the motherboard is not booting from your USB properly.
    To solve option one you simply need to reinstall Chameleon with the installer pkg found here
    To solve option two you must reformat your USB with MBR and install Chameleon from there.
    Try the first solution before the second.

    Buddy, the 750 ti is a Maxwell based GPU, and Maxwell support was introduced in Yosemite and up. Consequently you will not be able to boot without nv_disable=1 (I have dealt with this problem myself with my 960.)
    Update to 10.10 or higher and you will have no problems.
