  1. When following your tutorial at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy3hiwNIgg4 I get the attached error. Why do you believe this is happening? Anything not compatible on my specs? I'd really appreciate if anyone could reply to me. Thanks in advance These below are my PC specs.

  2. Hi, Since this topic has been moved to the Installation Guides section, i figured i might as well make a one. The post information is similar to the previous guide i wrote for the Inspiron 7720, this is mainly because it is easier than writing a complete new guide. Some Specs: Processor: Intel i7-4700MQ Graphics: Nvidia Geforce GT 745M/Intel HD4600 Memory: 16GB Wireless + Bluetooth: Intel Wireless-N 7260 Ethernet: Atheros AR8161 Audio: Conexant CX20751/2 Touchpad: Synaptics - Where to start?: A nice guide on how to create your own USB installer is provided here: http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/ I do recommend using this method: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302220-pandoras-box-20-candidate-3-roll-out/ It's self-explanatory. If you only run Windows at the moment, install OS X into a virtual machine, and follow the guide from there. - What will not work?: - Wifi, you will have to replace the card, i switched mine with an Atheros AR5B93. Note: After replacing, your Bluetooth will not work anymore. - Nvidia GT 745M, the card has been completely disabled in the DSDT. If this is not done it will make your system freeze on startup if the NVDA* and GeForce* kexts are not removed. Also, the system will overheat if it is not disabled. Since you can not use the card, it is best to disable it. - FN Keys for brightness (Needs research) - Card reader (Needs to be ported from Linux Realtek_RTS5229_Linux_Driver_v1.07.zip) - So...What does work?: - Speedstep - Sleep/wake - Intel HD4600 with patches - Audio, line out, speakers, HDMI and internal mic, DSDT injection and a patched AppleHDA. - Battery status, ACPIBatteryManager.kext - Webcam - Brightness control with FN key functions. - Touchpad with gestures - Ethernet - 1. Pre-Installation. - Download the EFI.zip from this post and place it on your desktop. When you opened Pandora's Box, select bootloader > Clover UEFI, click start. I had some issues with Pandora installing the bootloader. - When Pandora is done download Clover configurator, select mount EFI, on the bottom right corner, Mount EFI partition, and select the USB s1 (disk2s1 in most cases). - Open folder, it will be empty, just copy the EFI folder to that partition. Or do it the manual way: I prefer to just open a terminal window and type the following: sudo -s password diskutil list Which will output this: bash-3.2# diskutil list /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.5 TB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Yosemite 189.8 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 4: Apple_HFS TimeMachine 110.0 GB disk0s4 5: Apple_HFS Opslag 1.2 TB disk0s5 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *750.2 GB disk1 1: DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC 1.0 GB disk1s1 2: DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC 12.6 GB disk1s2 3: EFI SYSTEM 157.3 MB disk1s3 4: Microsoft Reserved 134.2 MB disk1s4 5: Microsoft Basic Data Windows 209.7 GB disk1s5 6: Microsoft Basic Data Opslag 526.5 GB disk1s6 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *8.0 GB disk2 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1 2: Apple_HFS Naamloos 1 7.7 GB disk2s2 bash-3.2# In this case disk2 is my usb key, disk2s1 is the EFI partition. Now type the following: mkdir /Volumes/EFI mount -t msdos /dev/disk2s1 /Volumes/EFI You can now open finder and copy the Clover contents to the EFI partition to match the screenshot. Another way of installing Clover: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/305255-making-a-yosemite-usb-installer-w-clover-the-correct-way/ - 2. Installation. Boot from the USB installer, it will boot in verbose mode, if any error occurs, you can take a photo of it and attach it to a post here. First you need to prepare the HDD to install Yosemite on. I recommend using and empty HDD, format it to GPT, with 1 partition formatted to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) 100GB, and another partition for your data, can be anything. Now go through the setup and select your newly created partition. Grab a cup of coffee or something. - 3. Installing a bootloader. After installation the system will reboot. Boot from the USB installer again. When you arrive at the Clover boot loader screen, select the partition you have just installed OS X to, and press enter. OS X will load, go through the system setup. The first thing you want to do is install a bootloader to the HDD. I have attached the files needed for Clover. The steps on how to install Clover are described in point 1. - 4. Patching AppleHDA.kext - 5. AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext and AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext This is now controlled by Clover and an AppleHDA injection kext (Used PikerAlpha's method and edited accordingly: Info here. ) Kext to be injected by Clover: AppleHDACX20751.kext.zip Patches controlled by Clover: Old content: Original post and files: El Capitan: For El Capitan the DSDT has been edited to remove the USB 3.0 multiplex patch since it was causing a kernel panic. The USB ports are injected by FakeSMC, as well as the AppleHDA information. Since plist patching by Clover does not work for me for some reason, i have used the Graphics.sh patch to enable the HD4600 with full acceleration. Clover folder: CLOVER10.11.zip sudo bash /path/to/graphics.sh Graphics.sh: Graphics.sh.zip For the AppleHDA add the following 2 files to AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/ and repair permissions using Kext Utility. HDA layout.zip The rest is handled by Clover and FakeSMC. Changelog: EFI.zip config.plist.zip Kexts.zip DSDT_MINI160v3.zip
  3. Hi Everybody, This is my first post so hope its ok, anyway. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WillWills' Hackintosh Guide ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What You Need: USB stick A computer that you are able to use, preferably with OS X installed Internet connection How to fix Hackintosh locked via iCloud website Step 1. Backup Data (Optional) So, first we need to backup our data, to do this, we need access to our system that we are locked out of, this is a temporary fix and may or may not work for you but here is how you do it: Boot Into Your Bootloader Boot Using The Boot Flags -s and -v When You Get To Bash, type "nvram -c" without quotation marks Now Type "exit" Without Quotation Marks And You Should Be Able To Access Your Old Files Step 2. The Fix This is the easy part, all you need to do is download the latest version of your BIOS and flash it (make sure it erases and resets everything) now you will either have access to your hard drive or you will have to do a clean install of OS X ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank You For Reading ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4. Hi, I'm currently new in installing OS X on a custom PC, I'm a Linux user for 10 years. I already searched through google and still cant find any answers to my question, that's why I decided to create an account and ask help here in the forums. My issue is, when trying to install Yosemite on my AMD computer, the Graphics is so Glitchy even on the Installer it self, tried booting with -x(safe mode) and GraphicsEnabler=No but its still the same, Mavericks works fine with no issues at all, but its just Yosemite that has the issues. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks! Francis Computer Specs: CPU: AMD A8-5600k Black Edition with Integrated Graphics ATI 7560D RAM: 8Gb MoBo: Gigabyte F2A58M-DS2

    Hack Pro Build for Pro Tools 11

    Hi Guys, I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on building my first hackintosh and was hoping to receive the forum's blessing first. This rig's main purpose will be to run Pro Tools 11 with my Digi 003 rack as an interface. Down the road, I hope to install an RME AES32 card to replace the 003. 2 years ago I tried to build a dedicated Pro Tools 8 PC rig but after endless troubleshooting it was still slightly glitchy and useable, so I have trepidation about dumping more money into what could just be one costly experiment. My potential build is as follows: GIGABYTE GA-Z97M-D3H LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I74790K Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0 SAMSUNG 850 EVO-Series MZ-75E120B/AM 2.5" 120GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) EVGA 02G-P4-2742-KR GeForce GT 740 Superclocked 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter, 2.4GHz 450Mbps/5GHz 450Mbps, IEEE 802.1a/b/g/n, WEP/WPA/WPA2 Sony Optiarc High Speed SATA DVD RW Burner Drive Black with DVD+R DL Overburn Model 5280S-CB-PLUS Rosewill SilentNight-500 500W Continuous @50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire ... I plan to use the Apple trackpad and wireless keyboard, which both operate through BT. I had read of issues with hackintoshes and problems with BT but those seemed to only be issues with older builds. Can anyone confirm? I opted for the Rosewill SilentNight 500W PSU as this rig will be used for a lot of remote recording where a control room will not be an option, and I want it to be as silent as possible. I assume the PSU makes little difference in terms of compatibility, or am I mistaken? I'm considering Noctua exhaust fans but want to see if they will be neccesary first. I plan to run Mountain Lion for the OS. I will get two SS HDD's so that if I want to create a PC rig or different rig for something else I can boot from that drive down the road, but my primary goal is to have Pro Tools running as smoothly as possible first. Looking for other graphic card options (if any) as I will not be doing any heavy 3d rendering or anything of the sort. Also wondering if it's worth the save $80 buck by going down to the mATX build Mobo in terms of long-term comparability, upgrading, and performance. The components will be installed in a 4U server chassis case. Any opinions, insight, or wisdom would be greatly appreciated (particularly from those who run Pro Tools on a hackintosh build!). Thanks in advance! Best, James
  6. Hello, I'm new to Hackintoshing and would appreciate some assistance. My Hardware specs are: Motherboard: AMD Crosshair V CPU: Phenom II 1090t RAM: 16GB DDR3 Graphics Card: Quadro FX 3800 HardDrive: Seagate 1TB I was successfully able to install OSX Yosemite 10.10.1 via my USB Yosemite(installation drive) using AMD kernel (1010-SSEPLUS-Rev.2) from this thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302075-amd-yosemite-kernel-testing-for-help-use-the-help-topic/page-41 Currently I can get the system to boot from my hard drive installation via these flags: -x -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x3000 However, If I want to boot into the Yosemite installer on my USB drive, I type these flags: -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x3000 (Notice how if I boot into the Yosemite installer via the USB it does not require the safe mode -x flag.) Anyway, I also noticed that if I removed all of the nvidia kexts from S/L/E folder, I actually can boot into my Yosemite hard drive installation without the safe mode flag. However, this method isn't really a fix because I obviously want to use my Nvidia card drivers or else the entire desktop will be laggy and I won't have any graphics acceleration. Even if I place the nvidia kexts back into the S/L/E folder the system does not have graphics acceleration. However, when I check my the "About my MAC" it shows that my graphics card (Quadro Fx 3800) was detected properly. I also tried an AMD 5850 in the same machine, but same problem, would only get to the login screen if I boot via safe mode. If I do not use the safe mode flag when booting into my hard drive installation of Yosemite, I am stuck with the spinning color wheel cursor with a white background. Is there any way to achieve full graphics acceleration and boot into Yosemite without the safe mode flag? Am I experiencing two separate problems or are they related somehow?

    2a Geracao Intel Graphics HD 3000

    Boas, estou a usar o Mavericks 10.9 e praticamente quase tudo estah a funcionar. Neste momento o meu problema eh a placa grafica. Eu tenho um Intel HD 3000 da 2a Geracao, e depois de procurar na internet, instalei um kext onde ele reconhece a placa e a resolucao eh a mais indicada, mas apenas reconhece 385 MB de VRAM... Nao tenho transparencia na barra de menus, o brilho estah um pouco baixo e nao consigo aumentar... Gostaria de uma ajuda pra resolver estes problemas...
  8. I have a AMD Athlon based computer and I want to install Mac OS X Lion but if that would be impossible I'm happy with a Snow Leopard insall. Specs of the PC : CPU : AMD Athlon 64 x2 5400+ (Stock, 2.8GHz but sometimes OC to 3.0/3.2GHz but i don't want a OC config on a Mac Installation) MOBO : MSI MS-7309 v1.0 GPU : ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series 512MB Normal Clock ( No Overclock) RAM : 4 GB DDR2 HDD : 500 GB SATA 2 HardDrive, but only 164.6 GB free for Mac OS X install because I have to keep the rest of the files and projects. * This version of BIOS I have doesn't support USB Boot but I've already did the AHCI setting.* Now I have only this computer ( running Windows 8.1 Pro ) and a Asus Laptop ( running Windows 7, uncompatible with Mac OS X ) because I forgot my new MBP in England at a friend.
  9. I have an ASUS GTX 750 Ti PH Series 2GB DDR5 (ASUS GTX750TI-PH-2GD5) with VBIOS (or VBIOS 82.07.25.AS11). I have tried this card out on both Yosemite 10.10 and 10.10.1 with NVIDIA Web Drivers 343.01.01f01 through f03 and 343.02.01f01. I have 1xHDMI port, 2xDVI-D Dual Link and 1xVGA ports on the card. I have 1xHDMI and 1xVGA ports on my monitor Dell S2440L. The card is installed correctly and is detected in System Report > Graphics/Displays and even in NVIDIA Driver Manager's ECC tab (of course, ECC not supported though). While I have all ports functional in Windows and for my gaming needs, I'm not able to get any port to work with Yosemite. I get a blank screen with a 'No Signal' message on the HDMI and both the DVI ports with Yosemite, after the Apple logo boot screen or after NVIDIA Drivers have been loaded in verbose boot. I have tried 3 different HDMI cables and even a DVI2HDMI adapter. Apparently, VGA works on this card for a lot of people but I haven't been able to try it out. I have tried PCIRootUID=1 as one of the bootflags, as suggested in other solved threads in this forum for the ASUS GTX 750 Ti, but I get the same result. (i.e. No Signal). I have tried PCIRootUID=0, GraphisEnabler=No/Yes and all other sorts of boot flag permutations and combinations but NOTHING. My hackintosh works fine with the on-board Intel HD 4600 (1536MB VRAM) graphics (Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H, supported as per the HCL). From my extensive discussions on other forums, I have gathered that this problem is not faced by cards sold by other vendors such as Palit, Gigabyte, EVGA, MSI - if any problems have been faced by these cards, they have been solved/fixed. The problem is mainly limited to ASUS cards, the ASUS Strix OC card with VBIOS being the only exception which has even the HDMI port working. toleda analysed a bunch of IOREGs for us folks stuck with non-functioning GTX 750 Ti cards and he's ruled out any issue with the NVCAP or the framebuffers. The problem seems to be only with the ASUS VBIOS for every ASUS card except the ASUS Strix OC. Some people who have flashed the ASUS Strix OC VBIOS on their non-functioning cards have reported success in getting all the ports working. I personally am skeptical since the cards that have been experimented with as well as the ASUS Strix OC are bigger cards with two fans, while mine is smaller card with a single fan. I'm not sure if it'll be safe to flash my card with the ASUS Strix OC VBIOS because it obviously has a very different component layout/structure. I'm really at my wit's end and I would appreciate any inputs whatsoever. I'm attaching my card's VBIOS in case somebody can disassemble/analyse it to figure out exactly what is different between that VBIOS and the one on the ASUS Strix OC 750 Ti which can be found here. I have also attached my IOREG, NVCAP screenshots and a GPU-Z screenshot comparison of my card to an NVIDIA Reference 750 Ti. Can't the NVIDIA kexts be somehow edited to help recognise the non-functioning ports on these problematic ASUS cards & their baffling VBIOS? If you require me to provide any more information pertaining to my case, ask away; I'll upload ASAP. Any insight is appreciated? Help me solve this puzzle.

  12. Ciao a tutti. Da anni uso con successo un hackintosh autoassemblato basato su Asus P7P55D-EPro con i7 2,8Ghz, scheda grafica GEforce 9500GT, 8GB Ram, e snow leopard. Ho provato, in un altro hardisk ssd, ad installare Maverick e Yosemite ma, con ambedue i sistemi operativi, l'installer arriva circa a metà e si spengono i monitor; è come se andasse in risparmio energetico e non si sveglia in alcun modo. Forse qualcuno sa il perché succede questo problema? Hardware non compatibile? Qual'è il metodo migliore? Grazie se avete qualche idea in proposito. Alessandro.

    OSX Yosemite 10.10 su Asus F550CC

    Salve a Tutti! Apro questo nuovo topic, reduce dell'OTTIMO lavoro svolto in precedenza su questo fantastico Notebook Asus F550CC con Mavericks funzionante al 100%. (vedi Mavericks 10.9.2 su ASUS F550CC) Lavoro svolto grazie all'aiuto di: Carbo, Soloh, Alfiero, Fabio, Marco, Fidelis, Cavallo... Credo quindi che valga ancora la pena lavorarci su... INIZIAMO! Premetto di aver già letto decine di pagine e di aver provato diversi procedimenti (con vari installer) tra cui anche la guida di Carbo (ALLA LETTERA), ma nonostante tutto mi ritrovo sempre e solo con l'installazione che non va, bella ferma sul logo iniziale e sulla barra di avanzamento che resta li immobile. * Ho estratto il kernel e l'ho posizionato nella cartella Kernels in System/Library * Ho utilizzato l'attuale DSDT funzionante con Mavericks * Ho installato 3 Bootloader: Enoch, Chameleon e Clover (in quest'ultimo ho aggiunto anche i kext utilizzati con Mavericks come da Guida) Allego le foto con la situazione attuale... ciè nessuna!
  15. Buongiorno a tutti. Sto per farmi assemblare un Hackintosh da usarsi con Lightroom e Photoshop (90%), editing video (10%). Cerco qualcosa che non sia lento come il mio attuale Mac mini per il mio workflow fotografico. Ad oggi anche solo selezionare una foto da un catalogo prende molto tempo... Questa è la configurazione che intendevo adottare (so che LR sfrutta molto il task singolo e quindi vuole una CPU potente quanto basta e con alta frequenza di clock): Case: Cooltek W2 MB: Asrock z97 Extreme 6 PSU: Enermax Platimax 750W semi-modulare CPU: Intel i7 4790K 4.0GHz da overcloccare fino a 4.4GHz CPU cooler: Noctua NH U12S RAM: DDR3 PC1866 16GB CL10 Corsair Ven k 2x8GB Vengeance,black,Low P. [CML16GX3M2A1866C10] (per quel dissipatore non serve, credo, il LP, ma così non mi precludo eventuali sostituzioni future di dissipatore) SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SATA3 con 2 partizioni: OSX 10.9 and 10.10. Queste ospitano anche i programmi SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SATA3 per il catalogo e le anteprime di Lightroom HDD: 2x Seagate 1TB 64MB cache 7200rpm (da configurare in RAID1 sulla scheda madre) per le foto HDD: Toshiba 256GB per Windows 8.1 (da usare poco) A queste aggiungo: FW: Syba PCI-Express 2 FW800 e 1 FW400 WiFi: Opzionale Avrei bisogno di un consiglio per la scheda madre... so che Lightroom "sfrutta i Cuda" (ma non so neppure cosa sia... :-( ), ma non richiede una scheda molto prestazione. Mentre invece Photoshop la usa di più... Inizialmente avevo pensato alla GT740 da 2GB GDDR5 (volevo rimanere su questo taglio di GDDR), ma poi ho sentito parlare delle AMD FirePro, che forse sono quelle usate sui Mac Pro... Potete consigliarmi qualcosa, per favore? Budget sui 100-130€. PS: possibilmente mi serve con 2 display port: ho già un DELL senza HDMI e volevo acquistarne un secondo (quindi la userei con 2 monitor)
  16. A maioria de nós estamos contando no relógio a hora para termos em nossos Hacks o tão falado OS X Yosemite, que trará mudanças significativas na sua aparência, e estabilidade tão bem falada que a Apple promete. Agora, nada mais importante do que instalar e usar um novo OS X, é fazer uma boa verificação se seu atual Hack poderá suportar o Yosemite sem engasgos, ou problemas que podem nos causar extress. Basico. Bem, se você atualmente usa o OS X Mavericks, é bem provável que poderá usar o Yosemite. Mas nem tudo são flores. Algo que você deve ter atenção, é em seus componentes como Video, WiFi, kexts para USB, ou métodos para a ativação de portas da sua placa gráfica, como HDMI, VGA ou DVI. Na maioria dos casos, usamos somente a HDMI, o que requer um patch na kext AppleIntelFramebufferCapri, você pode usar sem problemas a kext do Mavericks no Yosemite, mas pode acontecer que assim como eu, o video tenha travamentos e artefatos na sua TV. O que pode fazer agora é guardar os métodos usamos como seus patchs em algum Pendrive, ou armazenar em sua conta na nuvem usando o DropBox, iCloud etc… Médio. Guarde sempre suas kexts funcionais, ou plugins. Faça backup da sua DSDT, SSDT, se usa o Chameleon, também se certifique que tem guardado a pasta Extra com seu conteúdo, como o org.chameleon.Boot e FileNVRAM se usa para ativar o iCloud ou AppStore. Agora quem usa o Clover em modo UEFI está mais tranquilo. Pois o mesmo usa a partição EFI para armazenar seus arquivos, e essa partição é separada da partição onde está instalado o OS X. Mas tenha atenção na hora que for instalar o OS X 10.10, nunca mude o esquema das suas partições, ex: De GPT para MBR, fazendo isso, sua EFI será deletada, e mesmo se repetir o processo, por ex: Já usa GPT e não sei o porque quer colocar novamente como GPT, ainda terá a EFI, mas ela vai voltar ao estado padrão da Apple, apagando os arquivos contidos. Avançado. Se está inseguro com algo, ou se não gostou do Yosemite e quer voltar para o Mavericks, faça um backup inteiro do OS X. Não pense que no Hack as coisas são como os Macs reais, que em qualquer problema podem usar o Time Machine. Use ferramentas que vão atender a usa necessidade e poupar seu tempo. Uma ferramenta excelente é o CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner - Pago 30 dias de uso) ou o SuperDuper que é gratis. A vantagem do CCC é que você pode salvar até mesmo o bootloader, então é só gravar num HD externo/Pendrive e instalar tranquilamente. Agora o SuperDuper apenas salva o OS X, e não o Booloader. Mas isso é tranquilo, pois depois que o OS X foi restaurado, baixar e instalar o Bootloader não leva nem 3 minutos. Agora um dica que vai lhe possibilitar um suporte de qualidade é: Nunca use métodos de outros fóruns, ainda mais aqueles que não damos suporte, como Tonymac, Niresh e outros. Entendam que nós não odiamos eles, mas apenas pense com lógica, se você gosta de usar as ferramentas deles, não é melhor pedir suporte no forum deles? E vice-versa com relação a nós. Outra dica que pode te ajudar muito, é sempre ser paciente. Veja, todos vamos usar um novo OS X, onde os problemas provavelmente será resolvidos de modo diferente. Então não espere que os desenvolvedores ou membros da Staff usem uma varinha magica para os problemas, eles também precisam estudar novas maneiras, e quando estas estiverem disponíveis, vamos colocar da melhor maneira para vocês. Bem essa são as dicas que venho trazer para vocês. E aguardo com muita ansiedade o dia 16 de Outubro.
  17. For those of you, like myself, who choose not buying QUO when it was on kickstarter phase and now regret for quite a while not being able to use a thunderbolt capable board with our good old Ivy Bridge CPUs, since 7-series boards vanished, and the few ones which had TB more so, that's noteworthy news. I was planning to upgrade my old i5 3570K, but perhaps I had an alternative which would allow me to keep it: http://quocomputer.com/shop/z77mx-quo-aos/ Still thinking about it: does it still worth the price in these 8/9 Series/Haswell/Broadwell days?
  18. Hi, I was wondering wether it would be possible to install OSX Mavericks onto this motherboard, CPU and GPU Combo as I have done lots of reading but can't find much about it anywhere. I'm not that experienced with this but I got my AMD PC to work with Mavericks so surely this one has to go easier with it being a Intel motherboard. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  19. This Guide is tested on Yosemite Beta 1,2,3 and Golden Master version 3.0 Requirements for making USB Installer :-USB Flash drive at least 8 GB :-Install OS X Yosemite Beta.app (Download it from app store) :-Enoch Boot loader (Enoch-rev.2390) Or Chameleon Boot Loader (r2391) :-Kernel (retrieve it from Pacifist Essentials.pkg /System/Library/Kernels) :-Necessary Kext for booting OS X :-MBR Patch if you HDD is in MBR scheme Create USB Installer using Disk Utility and Terminal 1.Open Disk Utility and Format your USB Flash Drive as MBR Partition Scheme with Mac OS X Extended Journaled 2.Then Mount your 10.10 Yosemite image from /Application/Install OS X Yosemite Beta /Contents/Shared Support/InstallESD.dmg) 3.Then mount BaseSystem.dmg by using this terminal commands open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg 4.Restore “OS X Base System” to your USB Flash Drive using disk utility5.Navigate to USB drive/System/Installation & Delete the “Packages” Alias then copy the "Packages" folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location. 6. Copy BaseSystem.chunklist and BaseSystem.dmg from InstallESD.dmg to USB 7. Install Enoch Boot Loader (Enoch-rev.2390 and higher) or Chameleon Boot Loader (r2391)on USB drive8. Create the new folder name as "Extra" on the USB 9. Put SMBIOS in Extra folder 8.1 for Laptop support and 3.1 for Desktop support 10. Copy Following kexts to /USB/System/Library/Extensions/ on your USB stick NullCPUPowerManagement.kextFakeSMC.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext And delete following Kext from /USB/System/Library/Extensions/ AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext 11.Make a Org.Chameleon.Boot.Plist with following If you are HP user like me then simply Add cpus=1 along with kext-dev-mode=1 for botting OS X to avoid Kernel Panic related to LocalACPI see the images for better understanding 12.Create the new folder on the USB/System/Library/ name as "Kernels" and place your kernel which you retrieved it from Essential.pkg which is placed in InstallESD.dmg/Packages/ on this location USB/System/Library/Kernels/ 13.Download MBR Patch and add the patch once done everything install the Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 (Build 14A361p) and enjoy the new update. Note:Do not add kext on this location /USB/Extra/Extensions/ because sometimes kext will not load if kext dose not load you never reach the Installer screen Source is here http://hackintoshmumbai.blogspot.in/2014/09/mac-os-x-yosemite-beta-3-hackintosh.html NullCPUPowerManagement.kext.zip FakeSMC.kext.zip VoodooPS2Controller.kext.zip Enoch-rev.2390.pkg.zip Chameleon-2.2svn-r2391.pkg.zip
  20. Salve a tutti... vorrei iniziare un nuovo Progetto Hackintosh su questo simpatico Netbook Acer Aspire One D270 - 26Dbb La configurazione è la seguente: CPU: intel Atom N2600 (2 cores - 4 Threads) Scheda Video: Intel GMA 3600 (400 mhz - OpenGL 3.0 - DirectX 9.1) RAM: 1GB PC3-8500 DDR3 Come procediamo?
  21. Sale a tutti! Ho intenzione di costruirmi un nuovo hackintosh verso fine anno ed ho pensato ad una macchina con i seguenti componenti: CPU Intel BX80646I74770K Boxed Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Processore con Ventola, 8 MB Cache, 3.50 GHz € 286,11 CPU Cooler Corsair CW-9060007-WW Hydro Series H60 € 59,99 Motherboard Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H € 202,95 Memory Crucial 16GB (8x2) DDR3-1600 CL9 € 143,53 SSD Samsung MZ-7TE250BW 840 EVO SSD, 2.5 € 103,94 Hard Disk Seagate Barracuda St 2000 Dm 001 3,5 2000Gb € 73 Video Card EVGA 02G-P4-2763-KR NVIDIA GTX 760 - Scheda grafica PCI-e, memoria 2 GB GDDR5, 2 DVI, 1 GPU, HDMI, display port.. € 246,57 Case Fractal Design Define R4 € 104,16 Optical Drive LG GH24NSB0 Masterizzatore DVD-RW € 16,52 Totale senza monitor € 1236,77 Monitor Philips 288P6LJEB/11 LCD Monitor 28" € 532,31 Totale con monitor € 1769,08 Nota: L'alimentatore non c'è perché c'è l'ho già. Cosa ne pensate? Secondo voi potrei avere problemi di compatibilità con Yosemite? La mia intenzione è di cotruire questo hackintosh con buone caratteristiche, per avere una macchina con buone prestazioni e che non mi diventi subito obsoleta! E' da un po' che tengo sottocchio i prezzi di questi componenti e purtroppo devo dire che il totale tende ad aumentare!! Spero che per fine anno ci sarà un calo; spero in un totale sui € 1500. I prezzi sono quelli da me rilevati oggi 7 settembre 2014.
  22. This has been fully functional for around a year and a half. Turned on and went to Mac OSX Mavericks today and this new error popped up on the loading screen. Do you know if this can be recovered some how keeping the installation? The drive is partitioned with Windows 8 and Mac OSX Mavericks. One picture is of the load screen from Chameleon v2.2svn r2378 and the other is booting in verbose mode.

  24. Hi everyone! First, please forgive my English, is not my native language, so, Grammar Nazis are welcome to make an appearance here. Now to the main thing. A friend needs OSX for work, but he doesn´t has the budget to buy even the cheapest apple product, so I took his Packard Bell and started with this little project. Notebook specifications: CPU: Intel I5-450M RAM: 8GB DDR3 Video: Intel GMA HD <-Not sure about this...I know is a decent HD video card, but not sure about the model. Please let me know if it is vital info and I will ask the owner and update this. HDD: 320GB. + usual Notebook stuff like webcam, bluetooth, atheros chipset on the wifi hardware, realtek sound, etc. It´s a pretty nice PC, I guess it should be enough to run mountain lion...maybe I´m wrong. I tried with iDeneb 1.3 and didn´t work. stuck at instalation, Then i tried iAtkos L2 and managed to install, but got stuck in a nice apple loading screen. Before I jumped from my balcony, i saw this strange post in a obscure blog about the Niresh 12495 hackintosh. So I give it a try. Installed witouth troubles, but stuck in the apple logo again. I tried a -v boot and manage to see where it got stuck (couldn´t do that on iatkos or ideneb by the way). Captures at the end of this post. Lastly, I tried a -v -s -x boot. I got a console, so when i tried to input a help command, i realized the keyboard wasn´t working. It works in the boot screen, but when the console boots i guess is waiting for a bluetooth or a ps/2 keyboard, it doesn´t recognize nor the Notebook keyboard or a usb keyboard. So, should I give up? any advice will be welcomed warmly. Please don´t be shy and let me know if I can do anything else to help understand the issue. Kindest Regards from Chile.
