  1. This is a Guide on how to install Mavericks 10.9.5 on an HP Slimline s5220y. Specs Mobo: HP Slimline s5220y CPU: Intel Pentium E5300 (Dual Core) RAM: 4GB DDR2 800 MHz Wireless: TP-Link TL-WN851ND Graphics: EVGA Geforce GT 210 On a factory OEM s5220y you will have integrated Intel GMA 3100 Graphics and no Wi-Fi. Step 1: Install Media Creation Download myHack from here: http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/ and follow the guide (it is pretty simple) Step 2: Install Boot from the usb drive and follow the install instructions. I had to remove my graphics card for it to boot, but added it after the install and the problem was solved. Once you are booted up, select your country (or language I forget) and press continue. At the top of the screen it "Utilities" click "Disk Utility" and select your HDD (or SSD), go to the Partition tab and make sure you have the following: Current should be 1 Partition Format should be Mac OS Extended (Journaled) And "Partition Map Scheme" Should be GUID Partition Table (if it is not, click options and select it). Then click continue and agree, select the HDD you just formatted and click Install. Near the end myHack will come up and ask which extra folder you want to use. I chose "Use Generic Extra." myHack will ask you about a bunch of kexts too, choose yes or no depending on what you are using. Step 3: Kexts Audio You will need the AppleHDA Kext from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/148-109-gm-applehda-for-alc662/ For it to work correctly, either use Chameleon Wizard too add HDA Enabler to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist or add it yourself. Ethernet Not Working Wireless I installed this kext using kextdrop: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/3601-ar9227-for-mavericks/ Step 4: org.chameleon.Boot.plist and SMBios.plist Download Chameleon Wizard from here: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/4132-chameleon-wizard/ org.chameleon.Boot.plist Then make sure you have the following boot args: PCIRoot=1 (Depending on your Graphics) Graphics Enabler (Depending on your Graphics) -v (only if you want to see the cool codes, it is not required) SMBios.plist Click "Edit," then select "iMac8,1" under premade smbioses. And Thats It! Now it's time to restart and sit back and enjoy your creation. If you have ever looked inside an s5220y, then you might have seen that the power supply actually blocks the PCI port at the bottom, so it would be impossible for me to utilize it, so I dug up and old case and threw everything in there. I didn't even bother to mess with the PCIe x1 modem card. I hope this helped.

    Hackintosh Boots To Black Screen!

    There is a Guide to Something like this Here: http://www.givemesome.tips/about/hackintosh/how-to-fix-hackintosh-grey-screen-black-screen-white-screen-no-signal-problem-after-mac-os-x-hackintosh-installation-265/ I don't Know if it Will Help but its Worth a Shot. If That does not Work try Using a Different Install Method Like Using Niresh Yosemite or Installing form the Nawcom CD (which in my mind is far superior to i.b.o.o.t) If None of This works try Using a different Virtual Machine Service Like Virtualbox. Hope I Have Helped
  6. styrian, Thanks a lot, that worked. Windows XP is Installing as I type this Actualy
  7. Have you Ever Wanted to Replace your Trashcan with a MacPro? Follow These Instructions and you Will be Stuffing your Trash into a $4000 Computer!

There may be Multiple Trash Icons for Anything Above Snow Leopard. macProTrash.zip
  8. I am Following a Guide on Triple Booting my Hackintosh Here: http://lifehacker.com/5698205/how-to-triple-boot-your-hackintosh-with-windows-and-linux but whenever I install XP I get some error Message like "hal.dll is missing or corupt" or just "disk error restart your computer" after it copy's the Files after it formats the partition. Any Help?

    trying to hackintosh my old pc :(

    Leopard would Defiantly be Best, Although you Might be Able to run Snow Leopard If you Would Like to Install SnowLeo Follow These Steps (I have installed on a P4 Multiple Times with this Method) 1.) Burn a Nawcom Mod cd 2.) Boot from it and Switch the Nawcom cd for a Retail (Has to be Retail you can get them for about $20) SnowLeo DVD 3.) Go to Utilities>Disk Utility and Erase your Main HDD in Mac OS Extended 4.) Click Customize and Check the Things you Want to install 5.) Click Install (The Install Will Take about 30-20 minutes) Chameleon Will be Taken Care of by the Nawcom cd. Here is a Link to some Realtek Drivers (I did not test them Myself) http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/7963/realtek-rtl8139-810x

    [SOLVED] Screenshot on Hackintosh?

    LexHimself I have tried that multiple times, I hear a camera flash but no picture. Even if I use the Save-to-Clipboard command it still does not work. and preview does not work either. And FYI I have an Apple Keyboard. The Command key on a Windows Keyboard is the Windows key
  11. [solved] Is It Possible to Enable a SnowLeo Hackintosh to Sleep? My System Specs are in The Signature. If There is a Way to Make it so That it is Like it is Turned off, but when you move the mouse or press the keyboard it turns on that would be nice. Thanks in Advance I just dug up my old EVGA card and installed some drivers. I don't know how but it solved this problem and a lot more

  13. If I were you, I would Make sure I didn't have anything I didn't want to lose (or back everything up) and reinstall with a different install Method. Maybe creating a Yosemite install usb/dvd and using an i boot cd or nawcom cd. And if that does not work I would just use an installer like Niresh. Sometimes you Just gotta do whatever it takes
