  1. I installed both of those packages (for audio and ethernet). The audio did not change anything, but I think Ethernet may have worked. However, my PC is some distance away from my router so I'm unable to connect my PC via ethernet. It must be wireless. I opened up that System Info app you sent and found my device and my device is the "Ralink 5390." After looking around it seems that card is not compatible with OS X. But those posts were rather old, so perhaps this changed over time? Do you know of any kexts for this device? Would I be better off buying a wireless adapter such as this one from amazon? Edimax provides OS X drivers for almost all of their adapters. UPDATE: Never mind, the audio mysteriously started working! It had a lot of static, but I just needed to set the Input Gain to 0. So audio is working, now I just need internet. Also, it seems my PC will be on a constant reboot loop unless I type in the bootleg "/kernel". Is there anyway I can make the OS use the kernel on the USB by default? Copy it over somewhere? I did some looking around on the internet and actually couldn't find anything regarding that.
  2. Sorry for the late reply. I came down with an illness a few weeks ago... I also purchased a GTX 950 and installed it within my rig. However... I cannot find anything about that card working in Yosemite either. I have found some information about a "Web Driver" from nVidia, however after I installed it there was no difference in the display. Any ideas? UPDATE: Never mind, I was able to get the graphics card working! I just needed to swap the Web Drivers around as the currently used driver XD So that's all taken care of. I tested with a 3D application and it works flawlessly. However, now I need to get audio and my wifi working. For audio, my motherboard came equipped with an Integrated ALC888S-VD. As for the networking... That's more confusing to me. I think my Wifi is called "802.11 Wireless b/g/n PCI-E Mini card" (that's according to the manufacture's site). And my ethernet is a "10-Base-T PCI Realtek RTL8105E." Do you have any suggestions for those components? Thanks for your help!
  3. I spent the passed few days working on installing Yosemite on my PC rig and finally succeeded this morning! However... My graphics card is not working. The screen is low resolution and there's lots of image tearing. I looked around and couldn't find many details on my specific card... So I'm wondering if you guys here could take a look at tell me if it's capable of running on Yosemite, and if so, how I would make it work? This is my exact card: http://www.amazon.com/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Graphics-11216-02-20G/dp/B00FLMKI9A I would appreciate any help regarding this! Thanks!
  4. Alright, thank you! This allowed me to boot into OS X. However, it seems my graphics card isn't operational currently. Is my card compatible with Yosemite? The OS is running fine, it's just really low resolution and a lot of image tearing. I have a Sapphire Radeon R7 240 4GB DDR3. Thank you for helping me!
  5. I do not have Windows installed on there anymore. I do have some Linux Live-CD's available I could try using. But this kernel didn't come with any folder called "Extras." It did come with another folder. The main folder containing the kernel"1010 SSEPlus-Rev.6" which you can download at this link: 10.10_SSEPlus_Rev.6 The other folder it comes with is called "1010-rev.6.diff.zip" It contains a "patch.diff." Is this the extras folder you're referring to? I don't mind reinstalling at all, so I could put this "Extras" folder in the root of my USB along with the kernel. I have a MacBook I can do this on.
  6. Alright, so I was able to boot into the installer very easily. But now after I installed the operating system, my PC is on a constant reboot. How do I get the PC to boot into Yosemite? The installation passed with no errors. Everything went very smoothly. I don't even make it to a Chameleon loading screen at all, when my USB is plugged in or not. If my USB is plugged in then I get to somewhat of an interface which allows me to load into the installer, but when that's unplugged my PC is on a constant reboot and there's no errors. I boot with -v but the screen just flashes and I don't have enough time to read what it says.
  7. Thank you! I'm trying this right now. I'll post the results!
  8. Thank you, this is the first amount of detailed support I could find on how to install a kernel. I have another question though which I suppose is the "king" of my questions. Do I move this to the root of my Windows HDD and install it through the bootloader? Or do I insert it into the Kernels folder within the image file of Yosemite and then install? I do not have Yosemite on my PC. I'm trying to install it. Also, I do have a MacBook available with El Capitan so if I need to do something on a Mac I can do that. Thanks for the help!
  9. Where do I put the kernel files though? Can you send me a link to a step-by-step tutorial on how to use custom kernels?
  10. What I am confused with is this: Do I need to place the kernel inside the OSX image at all? Do I copy things somewhere onto the disk I am booting from? I cannot find tutorials on this at all and assistance would be much appreciated.
  11. Thank you. So... after I download one, then how do I use it? I'm sorry for being a noob regarding this, but I can't seem to find instructions on how to apply this kernel once downloaded. Do I need to install the Yosemite version that I get directly from the App Store? I'm assuming I need a bootloader for that however, so how do I apply a bootloader and which loader is the best?
  12. Thanks for replying! My PC hardware is capable of running Yosemite?? I'll look into your suggestions as soon as I can and post the results.
  13. Hello! I have been attempting to install Mountain Lion on my PC which is currently running Windows 10. Here are my current specs. CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 270 GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon R7 240 (4GB DDR3) RAM: 8GB Motherboard: N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX (Alvorix) However, I am... not doing too well with the installation. Upon my first attempt, I was successful at getting the PC to boot into the OS X boot screen (Apple Logo with loading spinner), but it just sat there spinning and spinning, not doing anything more. So I rebooted and entered in some boot flags. I tried the following combinations: 1) amd -v -x PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 2) amd -v PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 3 )amd -v 4) amd Now, the results were the following: 1) The entire process stopped at "System uptime in nanoseconds = 0" 2) The process froze about a minute into the loading process with the error, "BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory." 3) Same result as #2 4) I can load into the Apple loading screen, but it sits forever and never actually loads the installation setup. So... My question is this: My PC specs can run Mountain Lion, correct? If not, then I apologize for wasting your time. Which versions of OS X can my PC run with the mentioned specs? How would I go about running this on my hardware? I am completely new to this process, so I apologize for my inexperience. But I thank you all for your help!
