    Gigabyte Z170X - Gaming 7 - Success Hackintosh

    Hello, pretty great guide. Problem is once I get into disk utility through clover on my PC it doesn't display any of my hard drives, just the usb stick and two 'External Apple' drives of 2 and 4 gb. I have three drives in my system 1 2tb data drive in GPT with 1 NTFS partition 1 250gb SSD in MBR with a NTFS partition for games and exFat partition where I want to install hackintosh 1 500gb ssd that is my windows install in MBR. As I said none of these properly show up in disk utility. My system: Motherboard: Gigabyth z170x Gaming 7 (obv) CPU: I5 6600k RAM: G.SKILL 16gb 2400 VGA: GTX980TI As I said I'm able to get into clover no problem at all but once I load install osx and choose disk manager it doesn't show my drives.

    AMD Hazard Reboot Before Install

    Nawcom's CD is only good if you've installed the retail version of OSX SL on your system first. Since I don't have an extra mac lying around to do that, and you can install the retail version of OSX on an AMD machine, I don't understand what difference that'll make. That's why I was using Hazard's distro in the first place. Also, since I already installed Hazard's distro on my system with the only thing different being a new CPU, and this problem never occured, I'm wondering if this is a hardware issue. I don't think so? I'm not too sure what that is (like I said I've only been doing this for a few months). Here's what happened: 1) I installed Snow Leopard using Hazard's disc. Everything worked perfectly. The only things I did to the install was use Marvin's AMD patch and use osx86tools to get my GFX card to work. I didn't do or change anything to my system, BIOS, etc. 2) I upgraded my CPU. 3) My SL install continued to work, but it would occasionally KP and randomly just shut down. 4) I decided to re-install SL using the same method I used before. When I put the hazard disc in, it restarts before it even goes to the grey screen (i.e. in the video I posted above). Hey guys, I just slow-moed the video I took (youtube link) of what happens when I try this. The last entry if I try -v or not both pertains to ACPI. Could that be what's causing the reboot?
  3. Hey guys, So first of all, I've been using hackintosh on my system for about 6 months now, and I love it! However, after I upgraded my cpu from an old athlon x2 4400+ to a phenom ii x3 740 it would sporadically KP (after a few hours of use), the audio would stop working, etc. Plus I wanted to update my OSX install from 10.6.2 to 10.6.5; so I decided to start with a fresh install. Here's what happense when I try: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9cK8PmMnBU?fs=1&hl=en_US Basically, if I just click enter when the boot options comes up, it'll just sit stationary forever with a blinking text thing. If I try -v, it will list a few things and reboot. If I try cpus=1, it will do the same thing. Redownloading the Hazard image and burning on a new disc did not solve this problem. Help?! Thanks in advance, -Chris Pawlukiewicz Oh, and here's the link to my original install thread: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f213/188406.htm

    Kernal Panic after Install!

    I'm not entirely sure of the distro I'm using, I downloaded it from a torrent site. It's called "SnowLeo Mac OSX86 for Intel/AMD 32/64 Bit [GPT/MBR]. Do you have a specific distro you'd recommend? As for the dual booting, I don't have a problem with that at all. Chameleon has no problem recognizing my Windows Install and I have no problem booting into it. My problem is with the actual Hackintosh install.

    Kernal Panic after Install!

    Ok, so I figured out how to get to the boot options screen (after I install and restart with the KP if I take out the install disk it brings me to a darwin boot screen), but now if I hit f8 and I type in "cpus=1" it just sits on the gray screen with the apple boot logo. No circle spinny loading thing, just a gray screen with the apple logo. When I try to boot with the -v option, the text moves to fast for me to see, but it says something about loading a whole bunch of kexts, than something about ACPI and loading the kernel, than it just sits on a black screen with no text. What should I do now?
  6. I've been trying to dual boot Win7 and SL on my machine, and it's being a pain in the butt. My system: Motherboard: Biostar A0770E CPU: AMD Athlon X2 4400+ GPU: Nvidia 8800gt This is my install method: 1) Use Disk Utility to format HDD into two partitions, Win7 is a 250gb Fat32 with Master Boot Record, SL is a 50gb Mac OSX extended (journaled) with GUID. 2) Select the OSX partition. 3) Install. 4) It installs fine. 5) Hit reboot. 6) Kernal Panic. This is what the KP message says exactly: If I restart without the install disk it says "Missing Operating System" So, what's the problem? Does it have something to do with my install method? Does it have something to do with my processor. There are instructions during the install as for processor specific problems, it says "cpu=1" where/when do I enter this? In a terminal window? How do I open it. Thanks.

    Malicious Code

    Hilarious, I came across one of these recently. I bet someone with a mac actually downloaded that.

    Ipod Vs Blonde

    This is really hilarious. I don't understand why she had to be a blond though, that's totally racist.

    Installing Vista

    This is why you use Windows 7. I haven't experienced any of the problems in the second video. This is why you use Windows 7. I haven't experienced any of the problems in the second video.

    Is leopard a real 64bit OS?

    It's not a 64 bit OS, it's a 32 bit OS that you can run 64 bit applications on.
