  1. Hi Thanks for your help. I have now successfully updated Clover after disabling the injectors for intel and nvidia and now both displays work.
  2. Hi Sorry, I think that I have not made myself clear enough. The issue appears when it has booted into OS X 10.9 I have corrected my question above so that it is correct.
  3. Hi For a really long time I have been running with Clover EFI r2671 and have not been able to upgrade it. For some reason when I upgrade the boot loader it does only detect my primary display(when booted into OS X), which is connected via DVI-I port on my GTX670 graphics card. My secondary display is connected with HDMI. My system is a GA-Z87X-UD4H with 16GB 1866 HyperX Fury DDR3 RAM, 840 PRO, eVGA GTX670 2GB and Core i7 4770 If I install r2671 on top of the newer version my secondary display works again, but the bootloader is also downgraded. I have attached my config.plist from /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist Does anyone experience similar issues or does anyone know how to fix this? <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE

  4. Hi I'm trying to help a friend of mine in the process of installing Mac OS X 10.6.x on his AMD-based desktop, but we get an annoying error when trying to boot the system Decryption hasn't succeeded yet (probably will retry) patch_exec_obj_segment failed map_segment failed We couldn't get the retail OS X with patched kernel to boot on his system, so we used a unpatched version on one of my old Core 2 Duo laptops and installed 10.6.3, updated to 10.6.8 and installed bootloader, smbios and legacy_kernel(nawcom legacy_kernel 10.8.0). After doing this we tried booting his system with -v npci=0x3000 in order to avoid the PCI Configuration Begin - Error message. The legacy kernel installer added force64 and arch=i386 to the kernel flags of the org.chameleon.boot.plist. We're using Mac Pro 3.1 SMBIOS. Is there a solution for making his system boot the OS? His system specs are: AMD Phenom II X6 1075T AsRock 970 Extreme4 8GB DDR3 RAM Geforce GTX460 1.5GB GDDR5
  5. Hi After reformatting my hack the other day, I reinstalled iLife '11 on it, and got a message the certificate for the installer was invalid. I just continued, because it's on my iLife DVD, so I trusted the application. After installing I immediately updated all installed applications before trying to launch iPhoto '11. At that point all updates installed perfectly, but when I started iPhoto it told me that it needed a software update in order to run under Lion, but I did just install the latest version. Anyway I checked just to be sure, but there were no updates available. I then searched or help in non-apple forums and found out that deleting applications and all lines in Library/Receipts/InstallHistory.plist that has something to do with iLife and rebooting might solve the issue, but no it still won't neither launch or update iPhoto, but the rest of the apps work perfectly. Does anyone have a solution for my problem. When opening iPhoto i get this in console: 21/06/12 18.11.40,262 com.apple.coreservices.uiagent: Jun 21 18:11:40 kenneths-imac CoreServicesUIAgent[17884] <Notice>: Application failed to launch (id = com.apple.iPhoto, version = 9.0 reason = kLSIncompatibleApplicationVersionErr) Be aware that the code is copied last week to use in the other forum, but the error is still the same.
  6. Hi I have been forced to go out and buy a wireless network card for my hackintosh, because my ISP is out of money and have been forced to shut down their internet connections. This means that in order for me to get on the internet from my hackintosh desktop I need to connect to the ad-hoc network of my server to get onto the internet through a mobile broadband connection. My questions is now what wireless Airport Extreme/Airdrop/Airplay compatible PCI og PCI-E network card should I go with. I thought of going with a TP-Link TL-WN781N as it uses the same chipset as my laptop computers wifi-card(Atheros AR9285), which also happens to be able to run OS X Lion and have Airdrop support. But can anyone give me a better recommendation for OS X 10.7.x that the card I mentioned?
  7. I don't know about the motherboard, but your CPU would be compatible with 10.5.x, but I don't know about graphics. I know that if it had a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 945 it would have worked out of the box. But even real macs perform like {censored} on 512MB RAM in 10.5. You might be able to run 10.4.x on it, but I don't know. I have tried doing it on a OEM-machine with almost the same CPU, and I only managed to get Kalkeway 10.5.2 working, and it was very unstable
  8. Compatible Notebooks

    You could go with the HP ProBook. Here's a post that tells you how to install: http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=259&t=41546 The laptop that they use goes for around $530 on Amazon
  9. Hi I have a problem with Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac. I'm running Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2. The problem is that my Mac is dropping the network connection when I'm booting a guest OS, I have only tried windows, so I don't know if this is specific to windows only. My problem is that I'm trying to install a server setup with two clients. A windows 2008 R2 server which will be the domain controller, and a Windows 7 32-bit and a Windows XP 32-bit as clients. Until now I have only installed and setup the 2008 R2, and windows 7. Now when I boot the server, it gets a IP-adress, but Windows 7 doesn't get one. Both systems are running with a bridged network connection to my default network card. I have a quite slow internet connection, so I don't update my applications often, that may be the reason to this problem, as I'm running Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac Build 7.0.14920, and the latest version availible is Build 7.0.15504. I have always cancelled the update, because I didn't have the time to wait for the update to be downloaded. The weird thing is that everything worked perfectly in Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac. Does anyone have a solution for my problem. If it means that I have to wait the about 12 hours it takes to download the update on my internet connection, then I just have to do that, and come back when it's done See the specs of my hackintosh desktop build in signature
  10. Hackintosh

    It didn't work in vmware, because there's no graphics drivers in OS X for it, as it's only legal to install OS X server in vmware. If your graphics car works in OS X 10.6.2 and also after updating to 10.6.8, you can see it if you have a transperant taskbar at the top of the screen. Here's a screenshot found on google: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/682/screenshot25530423at195.png/ if you can't get graphics or something else working let me know, and maybe we can find out how to fix it.
  11. Hackintosh

    It's not that I don't want Skype, but I don't have a microphone, so we can't talk to each other, so installing skype just to write with you would make no sense. And yes, set it to boot from CD first. And your SATA-controller should be set AHCI whether you use a IDE drive or a SATA drive.
  12. Hackintosh

    Sorry, I don't have Skype. You don't need [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], only if you use the retail disk instead of hazard. And yes, your SATA-controller should be set to AHCI.
  13. Hackintosh

    I can see that your motherboard has both IDE/ATA and SATA ports. The easiest way of installing OS X is to use a SATA HDD and haveing your SATA-controller set to AHCI in BIOS. If you are going to use an IDE drive, we may have to find drivers/kexts for your IDE-controller. If we have to find drivers/kexts for IDE-controller we are forced to use the retail version of Snow Leopard from a USB pendrive, and for that we need another Mac OS X operating system. So if you in any possible way can get your hands on a SATA drive it would make everything a lot easier. But before getting another hard drive, try burning hazard from windows and boot from it. Remember to disconnect the power from your windows drive before booting from the dvd. Also disconnect all USB devices except for keyboard and mouse(it's recommended to use USB keyboard and mouse) When you have selected your language click on utilities and then disk utility. When inside disk utility check if it recognizes your hard drive. If it does we can continue, otherwise you'll need a SATA drive. Lets asume it recognizes your drive. Now select your hard drive and click on the partition tab and select 1 partition. Give it a name for example Hackintosh HD. Then check in the field below that it is Mac OS X Extended (journaled). Now click on options and select GUID. Click OK and Apply. If the system crashes(Kernel Panic/KP) or gives you an I/O Error, you can't install OS X on an IDE drive. If disk utility completes close it and hit continue at the Install Mac OS X screen, the click Agree and select the hard drive we just partitioned. Then click customize. At this point you'll have to experiment with the options, as I don't have Hazard, and therefore you'll have to experiment with different settings to get it working. When installation is complete hit reboot and when it restarts, remove the DVD and close your drive. If OS X boots up follow on screen instructions to set everything up. When at the desktop go download these 2 files to be able to update to Lion(which your system should be capable of doing): Install them in the order they are listed. http://www.osx86.net/view/2066-kernel_for_10.6.8_intel-amd.html http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399?viewlocale=en_US After rebooting you are able to upgrade to Lion. To upgrade to Lion you'll need this file(if you don't have an account at tonymacx86, you'll have to create one to download the app): http://www.tonymacx86.com/C:Dq-OCPpT/xMove-1.1.zip We also need a boot cd to boot after updating to Lion(I'll tell you when you have to use it: http://www.tonymacx86.com/C:Dq-OCPpT/rBoot-1.0.1.zip After downloading this, do not install it. Now you need to get your hands on Lion. I don't care how you get it, but the fastest way to get going is using the App Store verison. Now open Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility and go to your hard drive and select the partition tab and click plus now resize the new partition to 10GB and rename it to Lion Installer. Hit Apply and wait for it to finish, then close disk utility. When you are ready drag your Install Mac OS X Lion.app to the desktop and run it. Let it finish, and restart into your Hackintosh HD. Now run xMove and select the option for the App Store version and make sure destination drive is your Lion Installer(which you created in disk utility). Let xMove run and when it finishes restart the machine and at the boot screen select the Lion Installer and hit enter. Now format your Hackintosh HD partition by selecting it in the Utilities -> Disk Utility option. Now do the exact same thing than when installing hazard, by selecting your hackintosh hd, but this time, just hit install. When it restarts, put in the boot cd you have downloaded and burned before starting. Let it load and select your hackintosh HD. When back in OS X go through the configuration just like when booting hazard from the hard drive. When at the desktop you'll need this file: http://www.tonymacx86.com/C:Dq-OCPpT/[url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]-4.2.1.zip Run it and select Easy Install and System Utilities Enter password and install. remove the boot cd and restart. Now you'll have a fuly working hackintosh running the latest version of Mac OS X. When booted back into OS X again launch software update and install whatever shows up. This is just for general help, and I don't know Lion will recognize your IDE-drive, as I always use SATA for OS X. Also you'll need to get drivers for everything that isn't working. I know you can download nvenabler and natit from kexts.com if you don't have working graphics card. I believe you need the VoodooHDA for sound. I can't see what network card you have, but if it isn't working we can try fixing that. Let me know when you have tried my steps above.

    Ok Lets do it the easy way. First of all we need a little more info on your computer. What CPU/Processor, Motherboard, Graphics Card etc. do you have, as this is needed to find out if your system will run OS X at all. To install OS X your hard drive controller must be set to AHCI in BIOS, and the only hard drive that stays connected during installation is the drive for Mac OS X. Now to what to install with. Personally I think doing the Retail DVD with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]+[url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] by tonymacx86 is the best way to get a fully working OS X installation. But you can also get some premade ISO-files on the internet called distributions or distros. My personal favorite for OS X 10.5 is iATKOS v7 and for OS X 10.6 it's Hazard 10.6.2 and SnowOSX. If you plan to install Mac OS X Lion 10.7.x you'll need to have access to a Mac OS X system running at least OS X 10.6.6 or higher, as you'll need to buy Lion of the App Store and the use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] by tonymacx86 to make a bootable USB-drive. When I did install Lion on my latest hackintosh build, I used VmWare Workstation to run Mac OS X 10.6.7 and prepared everything for installation of Lion. But as mentioned, before I can help you decide which version of OS X you can install I need to have some info about your computer. Be aware that if your computer is a laptop we will run into problems.
  15. Hackintosh

    The easiest way is to use the HD that is for mac as the primary drive, and then install OS X on it(just to be safe that it doesn't mess up windows remove the windows drive until you've installed the bootloader or mac). When finished installing OS X and installing the bootloader, you simply select the drive called system reserved when prompted to select boot device, and then windows boots up. This is the easiest way to do it. If you prefer to use the Windows Boot Manager to select which system to boot, you'll need to have your windows drive as the primary, and then after installing OS X make a boot entry for mac os x with easyBCD.
