    None of my USB ports work!

    Unfortunately this will not work as that solution is aimed at Intel's EHCI/XHCI controllers, plus I'm not using Clover but rather Enoch because I am running an AMD desktop, though if it worked for an AMD machine I image it would be fine in E/E. Edit: Spakk do you need more pictures? I figured that and my DSDT would be good enough but if you need a picture of EVERYTHING I'm more than happy to oblige =P

    None of my USB ports work!

    Okay so I took a picture of the PCI tables in DPCI Manager, I also managed to extract my DSDT in case that is helpful. It's not actually a zip file so you can just remove the extension to turn it back(for some reason it wouldn't let me upload the file without changing the extension, if this is against the rules somehow I apologize!).

    None of my USB ports work!

    Sorry, I didn't get to work on this further this morning. I will download it tonight and try to run it to find out what I need. A side note, I could not get my Ethernet connection to work properly last night, OSX acknowledged there is something there under the network settings, however it keeps coming up with the same message to check my Ethernet cable is plugged in, etc. even though I can access the Internet just fine through Windows on the same machine. I installed an Ethernet kext for my particular chip (Realtek 8111) as well as used the boot flag EthernetBuiltIn=Yes but had no luck getting a connection.

    None of my USB ports work!

    I tried both of your suggestions, didn't change anything. However, I did learn that my keyboard is actually functioning after all, I just needed to enable full keyboard functionality in OS X. After doing this, I came up with a temporary solution to help attempt solve the issue, as well as others while I'm at it, which was to install Teamviewer and run it from my legit Mac for the time being until I get the USB ports fixed lol As for my SATA chip, I found out through rigorous online research that my motherboard uses the ASMedia 1042 chip, or at least I'm pretty sure it does. When I run Windows and look at the device IDs, it mentions "1142" but not 1042. Now my question is, would it be possible to inject the device ID into the config.plist like with graphics kexts? Or is it going to be a little more complicated than that? From what I can tell, most of the text is the same except 2 fields which appears to be the device ID and some other set of numbers I have no clue about. As usual thanks in advance!

    I have the USB fix installed in both E/E and in S/L/E, that was the only way I could boot otherwise I would get the USBEHCI stop/restart loop. @Spakk I will get on this as soon as I get home tonight from work I appreciate you helping me even further XD

    None of my USB ports work!

    Hello, so I just finished getting OSX to boot a few days ago(finally) and now when I boot into the OS my USB ports don't work...sort of. When I boot and reach the login screen, my mouse does not work but my keyboard does, so I'm able to type in my password and log in. Once I get past that however, keyboard functionality stops working as well. I cannot go through the keyboard setup process using tab and space to select buttons and confirm. I know my OS isn't freezing because the clock will change when a minute has gone by, so at least I can rule that out. Also, after several minutes of being logged in an error message(s) will pop up telling me something hasn't been installed correctly. It will reference two different kext files which I will show below. Any and all help is appreciated! EDIT: I only have a photo of one of the kexts! The other one produces the same exact message but with the IOHIDFamily.kext.

    HELP TOPIC - [AMD] OS X El Capitan (10.11)

    Hey Spakk, so I tried what you suggested, however the issue still remains =| I ran the verify and repair tools on both the installer and target disk in OSX, nothing came up. I even went as far as to reformat them to NTFS and scan them for bad sectors using Aomei Partition Assistant(great program by the way for Windows users) and still nothing. So I used a flash drive I've barely used to see if maybe I just wore out the flash cells in the old flash drive and even then the installer came up with the same damn error DX If I remember correctly, when I somehow magically did it right, those "can't get kextd port" entries weren't coming up. Neither were those last few lines of errors stating something ended with an abnormal code of 255, etc. Any further direction is appreciated!

    HELP TOPIC - [AMD] OS X El Capitan (10.11)

    Thanks a bunch! I will try this out when I get home tonight. I've probably made more than 20 attempts to create the USB installer but I hadn't even given a thought that either the flash drive itself or other disks on my system were the problem. Much appreciated, I will return with results tonight =)

    HELP TOPIC - [AMD] OS X El Capitan (10.11)

    Hi guys, I've been at this since April 2015 trying to get my AMD machine to run OSX. My last attempt I had used Shane's method with El Capitan, and by some miracle of 3 AM witchcraft I got the installer to boot and install successfully, but the SSD I am using to run it wouldn't even boot into verbose mode. This was prior to me learning that I had to copy my Extras folder and kernel onto the installed disk itself so I scrapped my installer and went at it again because I thought I did something wrong, only to make the situation even worse because it wouldn't even boot past a line saying along the lines of "service ended with an abnormal code: 255". This time around I followed the steps that I remember using, but I still can't figure it out, I keep getting stuck in different places every time I try something. To help troubleshoot, here are the steps I've taken. - The OSX version I have installed on the Mac is 10.11.3 but I had used the 11.2 kernels Shane and Bronya created and used them to load it successfully that one times I cant imagine that's the issue - Followed Shane's tutorial step by step so I couldn't mess it up, I am using the Enoch version given in this folder - Kept getting USBEHCI/USB stop and restart loop, applied the USB fix v2 for my OS version -Added ASUS USB fix for keyboard functionality in the installer(I think it's 2 kexts, one of them is ACHIPortInjector? I'm not at my computer at the moment so I can't check, will edit this when I get home.) -Changed from kernel in Shane's folder for the tutorial to Bronya's 10.11.2 kernel Despite all of that, depending on what combination I do I get tons of different results, the picture linked below is with everything above applied to the installer. I hope I can get back to where I was and apply the next step so I can get to the real fun making all my stuff work in the OS! Thanks in advance for any and all help, I don't post much because I'm often trying different things instead of begging for help, but I really do appreciate it!!

    Trouble Installing AMD Kernel

    So I tried your recommendations for the kernel as well as the keys and it seems that did not work. I probably should've tried to snap a picture of this before and troubleshoot from there but it was always a little too fast for me to take a snapshot. However, with a little bit of research it seems it could be one of the following: either I need different boot flags to do certain things like PCIRootUID and USBBusFix, or the kernel I am using isn't the right one or is corrupt. I hope is not the case and that I have to keep trying different kernels...I will keep trying different boot flags before I start testing different kernels from the download page Spakk provided. Some additional notes I've come up with are as follows: - My graphics card is not natively supported in OS X, not by a long shot. The 290 non-X version seems to be the least supported graphics card in the whole lineup of AMD cards, which could ultimately be a huge road block, and the fact that I got the Niresh distro to even partially work might be nothing short of a miracle. With all that being said, this could be the source of my problem or not even close to it, I have no idea still *scratches head* - I've been installing the suggested kexts in the Clover EFI partition under the kexts/10.10 folder, am I supposed to be installing them there to boot? In the actual Install OS X Yosemite.app? Or perhaps do I need to make another folder in one of the partitions? For now I'll be testing the boot flags and such to see if I can get any new results, in the meanwhile if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears! And thank you in advance as always, any help is appreciated. EDIT: Sorry my picture didn't post for some reason, here's an imgur link to check it out: http://imgur.com/70sOLLx

    Trouble Installing AMD Kernel

    Thanks for both your guys help! @Spakk I knew it was going to be something dumb like that DX I can't believe I didn't think of creating a folder for the kernel...Ill try your suggestions and see if I can get it to boot tonight. @Shaneee I made that mistake when I first tried to make an installer because I'm dumb, thankfully I didn't have an El Capitan installer so the Terminal command didn't go through when I tried it XD I just deleted the parts where it says El\ Capitan.app and replaced it with Yosemite, no El\ of course. I'll post my success...or failure, as soon as I can, thanks for the help!

    Trouble Installing AMD Kernel

    Hello, so since the last time I posted I've had a bit of luck and happened to find an old iMac in the dumpster at my job. I took it home, repaired it and now I have a legitimate means of getting a fresh copy of OS X! With that in mind, I've ditched the Niresh distro because no matter how many different things I tried I could NEVER get my graphics card to work properly. So I'm back at it trying to make a clean installer with the bare minimum to get me through, so far it's been going pretty good except one thing...the kernel. I honestly don't know where or how to install it onto the boot drive. I've looked around on these forums, on other forums(including Reddit >.>), etc. and I can't seem to find the answer that I'm looking for. My first attempt I just dragged/dropped into the USB drive after installing Clover, that obviously didn't work. I also renamed it to "mach_kernel" which didn't do anything either, lastly I tried installing it in a few places that I thought might be more likely such as the EFI drive. Am I missing something? Overthinking it? I'm at a loss. I'll break down my steps for creating the installer, hopefully someone can help me push through to the next step. ---------------------------------------------------------- My Specs: AMD FX 8350 Asus M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard MSI R9 290 Twin Frozr 4X4GB AMD R9 Gaming RAM @ 2133Mhz Corsair 850W Gold Cert. PSU Installing on a 2.5" spare laptop drive ----------------------------------------------------------- Here's my method of creating the installer: Step 1: Download the Install OS X Yosemite.app installer Step 2: Run Terminal, type in this command: "sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction" Step 3: Once it finishes installing, I restart the iMac to complete any necessary changes Step 4: Open and install the latest revision of Clover to the drive Step 5: Restart the iMac again Step 6: Place FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement kexts into the 10.10 folder inside the USB installer Step 7: Place the AMD kernel for 10.10.5 in the USB installer Step 8: Create a config.plist file with Clover configurator on the iMac to match what I've needed to boot previously and place inside the EFI partition of the USB installer Step 9: Remove the drive, attempt install on PC. ----------------------------------------------------------- Some additional notes: - The kernel I'm using is an AMD 10.10.5 kernel by Deepak, not sure if the OS X version I have is 10.10.5 since it won't tell me in the App Store when I load it, not sure if this is an issue or not - The kexts were also provided by Deepak on his website on getting El Capitan to work - I have installed Clover for UEFI boot, which my system is perfectly capable of, however I'm wondering if it might be a part of the problem - When I actually boot the USB drive, it starts up for several seconds in verbose mode and then powers down my computer completely, restoring power a couple of seconds later. I've been at this since April trying to get a working install of Mavericks and Yosemite, both unsuccessfully, so thanks in advance for any and all help, it's definitely appreciated!

    Several Issues With Yosemite 10.10.0 On AMD Build

    So it's obviously been a while since my last post, but I haven't given up on the task of getting my graphics card to work! I attempted to do a vanilla install of OSX Yosemite, however I could not get the disk to boot or install properly. I used a friend's Mac, followed a guide showing how to install MacPwn using the OSX Installer.app file and MacPwn to create a bootable disk, however the disk would not boot properly, I could not even get to the bootflag input menu. MacPwn installed OSX and itself to the boot drive without any issues, I know this because I tried several times, making mistakes along the way, however once I got it right the drive still wouldn't boot right, so I am not sure if this is the right direction I should be taking. With this in mind, I went back to the Niresh build and encountered some "new" problems, a fresh perspective after spending several weeks trying to get a vanilla installer, only to have it fail on me *cries slightly*. The first thing I've noticed is now when I install OSX onto the disk drive I had been doing so all along, the Clover configurator tool and Clover itself do not appear at all upon the first time logging into OSX. I've had to use MacP0ison to install a newer version of Clover and it's configurator, which ends up loading properly, but also causes another problem. When I boot back into OSX once I save and import my config.plist, Clover doesn't load the preset flags, IDs, etc. when I boot the drive. I have to import the file again when I log in, and restarting to apply the changes does nothing! Before I go any further, I should also probably explain the boot process and the issues I've ran into with this as well. First off, I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT boot from the disk under any circumstance because what occurs basically bricks the OS(I'll get to this in a minute). So instead, I must boot from the boot drive first, THEN type in any bootflags I want to boot from the hard disk. If I do this, I can log into OSX successfully and try to fix/work on the OS. However, if I boot from the actual disk drive that OSX is installed on, it boots in the resolution of 1920X1080X32, which if I do this with the boot drive it also bricks the OS, but also I cannot use my wireless keyboard and mouse if I boot from the hard disk either. This is rather confusing, because it works when booting from the boot drive first, but not if I boot straight from the hard disk... Continuing on, I have a few questions in mind to ask. The first being what am I doing wrong with Clover? When I customize the install to the disk, I select "Clover Standard" and that's what has worked in the past. Using the EFI or UEFI selection makes it bootable, but my config.plist could not be created or imported with a previously created list because a certain folder was "missing" but it didn't exist in the first place. Secondly, why would the Clover configurator all of a sudden not be installed along with Clover during the install? The DMG file I'm using hasn't been touched since the last time I used it, granted it's not "vanilla" but it's the only thing that's worked(sort of) so far. I can get just about everything to work EXCEPT my graphics card. I don't require it for intense graphics applications, but I do want to be able to run OSX in 1080p without a bunch of graphics artifacts. My third question is whether or not using the "load VBios" option is a good idea? The last thing I want to do is brick my graphics card by accidentally flashing the firmware to something corrupt or incompatible, but if this would help without any risk other than possibly bricking OSX then I'm all for it, I just want to know whether or not it might help my situation.

    Several Issues With Yosemite 10.10.0 On AMD Build

    Thanks for the advice, I'll try this method and see what comes up! Also, when booting in Clover it always automatically loaded the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag, along with dart=0 and a few others. I've been reading up on a lot of forum posts and it has come to my attention that Apple has written support for all the R9 series graphics cards EXCEPT mine, which is heartbreaking really because I just bought this card not too long ago, only then to recently discover the wonderful world of "Hackintosh". Had I known prior, I would have shelled out the extra cash for a 290X! Anyways, there seems to be several people getting theirs to work regardless of the lack of support for it, so I'm wondering whether or not those posts are a hoax or if I'm just stupid and I'm doing something wrong(probably the latter, but you never know). Also, thanks for welcoming me =D I'm excited to actually have some feedback, I signed up for the site Niresh runs but nobody has posted on any of my threads in a month...
