    Samsung RV420

    Boa noite pessoal. Pimentel, Allan sou eu novamente. Arrumei um Samsung para fazer uns testes, consegui instalar o Snow Rentail logo de cara com o ibxxt, mas é claro que não ia ser fácil. Vou colocar as especificações e você me orientem por favor, qual OSX consigo instalar nesse, alem do Snow? Não consigo tirar muita informação dele porque não consigo instalar o Ruindows de jeito nenhum, alias nem quero...rs Processador: Intel® Core i5 2410M Chipset:HM65 Audio: HD (High Definition) Audio Com o Sistem info peguei essas informações: Network controller Ven ID: 14e4 Dev ID: 4727 (estou sem net nele) VGA compatible: Ven ID: 8086 Dev ID: 0116 2nd Generation Core Processor Familiy Integrated Graphics Controller Precisava colocar a net nele ai ficava mais fácil arrumar, quando ele tinha o Ruindows, o System info apareceu quase tudo verde e os outros com carinha sorrindo.. Pessoal me ajuda mais uma vez?
  3. Hey everyone, I have recently got hold of a T410 laptop for christmas, of which is the Intel HD Graphics version. It has 8GB of RAM and is currently running Windows 7 and requires an old (disallowed to say what bootloader disc to be inside) in order to boot to an install of Snow Leopard I have made. The first thing I did when I got my laptop was install Mavericks using the boot flag: GraphicsEnabler=yes However, I never really knew what to do after the install as it was my first time installing Mac successfully. What I mean by I didn't know what to do, is that it would simply not boot after install. I now know that there are a few Kexts scattered here and there throughout the forums, some contradicting others saying first generation HD Graphics are not supported, whilst others say they are and it has been very confusing. A common error I get whenever booting any kind of installation or even my install of Snow Leopard (which runs fine) is that is says There is an error starting this computer, pausing 5 seconds. Not sure if this means anything, As of now, I can not install Mavericks anymore, not even through the Niresh distro I used to begin with. Some of the time in the verbose mode, there is often an error saying that certain playlists are not found either which can also lead me to believe I need to add some kind of modified version or extra files. One last thing I want to note is that I would like it if somebody could maybe compile me a zip or gather some useful resources such as Playlist files, kexts, and other things that may help me get Mavericks (or even Yosemite now) onto my T410. I have tried all installers, such as Yosemite (through transmac as a distro), I have tried Mavericks (Niresh Distro again), and I have even tried downloading a non-distro and installing it to USB through myHack on Snow Leapoard, and there has been no luck. Thanks for reading this and I hope that maybe somebody can help me get a stable OSX on my Laptop. Forgot to mention another confusion: I don't know how to inject kexts into the USB installer itself, and whether you should do it before or after installation of OSX.
  4. (Also will work the same for 10.8.4, without the server.). Now running 10.9 Server. [2014-11-13] Now running 10.10.0 + Server 4.0 [2015-09-25] Running 10.11 GM (No Longer as server) I have been building Hackintosh boxes for several years now. I originally favored microATX format. After 4 different hacks, and being a Mac user since the early days, I came to the conclusion that most of the hack hardware's reliability was sorely lacking: microATX has heat issues when you load up the box, even without overclocking. Gigabyte and other popular boards are problematic from a quality point of view. They are also archaic, some with VGA ports and such. BIOS. Just infinite opportunities to goof things up. Memory. I had so much trouble, it is not even funny. I needed to build a 10.8 OSX Server with rock-solid uptime. So, here is the hardware I acquired: Corsair 400R case. Plenty of space. Most crucially, runs cool. Intel DH87MC ATX motherboard. A real Haswell H87 motherboard. Yes I know, it is not over-clockable. But I am building a server, and shooting for quality and reliability. Has no obsolete anything on it. Super quality board. Corsair Vengeance 8Gigs (I had so much trouble with memory in the past.) This is supposed to be just good memory. i5-4670k. Why 'k'? It was on sale. I will not overclock. A decent OCR 600W modular power supply. I recycled one of my old ones. Nvidia 8800GT video card. I recycled that one too. After all, it is a server, not a game machine. Eventually, I will attempt to use the integrated graphics.(Don't even try this before Maverick.) Now the key question. Does it boot 10.8.4? Yes it does. Does it run as a OSX server? Yes! Here is how I did it: Assemble everything. 400R is a beautiful case. Boot with and test memory with memtest CD. Got burned before. Carbon copy cloner rip a working 10.8.4 installation from my real mac to a sata drive that I connected through a $10 USB drive case. (Please don't ask me how to install from scratch, there are literally hundreds of installation tutorials out there.) I made no modification on the real Mac's drive. All of the modifications below are to the drive being prepared. On that Mac, install Chameleon 2254 only to that drive. If you install Chameleon on your real Mac's drive, it will not boot. You will be toast! Boot the Haswell PC with a Windows or Linux installation, and create a DSDT (I think this is optional since this is a UEFI board, but I did it anyway). This is well described on the web. Put the dsdt.aml into the /Extra folder in the drive you are preparing. Install FakeSMC.kext and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext into the S/L/E Install AppleIntelE1000e.kext (version 2.4.14 or later) into S/L/E/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ Install Realtec 892 using m u l t i b e a s t and without DSDT option (This did not work.) I also have the AppleRTC.kext patch, but not sure if that is needed since this is a UEFI board. Using HexEdit, patch the /mach_kernel. Look for eb0a83f83a and replace it with eb0a83f83c. Credit goes to pikeralpha. This enables Haswell code to run on the kernel. Rebuild caches. Check disk and permissions to be on the safe side. Boot and cross your fingers. (I booted with -s -x -f -v GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 first boot, whether that makes a difference, not sure.) After a successful boot, make a smbios.plist, and put it into the /Extra. I used MacPro6,1 and Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 also provided by pikeralpha. I generated a new serial using chameleon wizard, but it does not have MacPro6,1, so the serial belongs to MacPro5,1. Oh well. Enjoy Haswell, and a very good quality and modern Intel board with 10.8.4. (Server just works as well.) Tested: Uptime. No kernel panic or anything in two days. Not even once. Audio: did not work, but did not try other than the initial installation. I plugged in a $5 usb audio gizmo from my junk drawer, and it is perfectly fine. If you find a solution, let me know. Built-in internet. Works just fine. Heat: is very cool. Geekbench (32): about 10,000. I think memory is running at 1333. But I made 0 adjustments to the UEFI, or bios for that matter. Other than boot order. Shutdown & restart, working. Sleep, did not test, but this is a server. Don't need sleep. Good luck. 2 MONTH UPDATE: In two months of operation, not even a single kernel panic, and no crash, running as OSX Server 24x7. Benchmark: Geekbench 3, 64 bit benchmark results: 3,451 / 11,207. Pretty respectable. 10.8.5: [After patching the BIOS, now full 10.8.5] Using MiniHack's method, upgraded to 10.8.5, and reverted back to the 10.8.4 (patched) kernel, also reverting AppleACPIPlatform, AppleAHCIPort, IOPCIFamily, IOPlatformPluginFamily kexts back to 10.8.4 versions. Updated AppleIntelE1000e.kext to version 2.5.4c. FakeSMC to HWSensors.5.3.820.pkg. Also updated to Chameleon 2262 to use internal video. Boots fine. Internal 4600 Video: Works with IntelAzulFB=8 (Insert <key>IntelAzulFB</key> <string>8</string> to org.chameleon.Boot.plist.) Audio Update: Using https://github.com/toleda/audio_kext_enabler and https://github.com/toleda/audio_ALC892, I now have audio. Using Audio_ID: 1. DSDT Update: Also runs without a DSDT just fine. Network Update: Downgraded the AppleIntelE1000e.kext to version 2.4.14 as version 2.5.4c kicks out during large transfers (>10 gigs). 2013-10-13 Update: After the unlocked BIOS update as documented below, now running 10.8.5, and can boot 10.9 DP8. 2013-10-23 Update: Updated to 10.9 Mavericks. Everything works. 2013-12-16 Update: I now have two of these rigs. One server one client. Sleep works just fine. 2014-02-26 Update: Now running 10.9.2 and Server 3.0.3.

    HP Envy 4T

    I just got this an awesome i5/Ivy/HD 4000 laptop, and I'd really like to get OSX up and running.. so far, this is as far as I can get after a fresh install (with the install drive, disk1s2 flagged as active): Boot parameters include: cpus=1 busratio=20 pcirootuid=1 arch=x86_64 GraphicsEnabler=no Could use some help on this; any suggestions would be appreciated! Here are the specs for this laptop: HP_Envy4T_Specs.txt Thanks! Thomas
  6. Stumbled upon a site that compares CPUs for you - Intel v Intel, Intel v AMD, i5 v i7, etc... Its a pretty cool site and hopefully this will help you pick your next processor.
  7. Hi, I'm new to this osx86 world and i've recently installed successfully Mountain lion on my HP DV7-4035es, with everything working except wi-fi and ATI Graphics. The problem is that i don't know how to make the ATI 5650m work, and i don't even have access to advanced settings on BIOS (for disabling the onboard gpu). My specs are: Intel i5 (all cores working) 4GB ram ATI HD 5650m + intel HD graphics thanks even for taking your time to read my issue.
  8. Hello, I have installed Yosemite Beta 5 on a new system I'm working on: -GA-H87M-HD3 -i5-4430 -8GB HyperX FURY RAM -iMac 14,2 smbios I am using the Chameleon Bootloader with Generate P and C states disabled and the DropSSDT=yes However, the SSDT I have generated does't seem to be working, as I only get P-States 8 and 30. Is there something else I need to do in order to get more P-states? In Mavericks, I was getting a few more P-states with a generated SSDT (around 4-6). Thank you for your help.
  9. Hi guys, Now we have woking both Yosemite and Mavericks on Asus Zenbook UX32A with core i5. Clover and kexts attached to this post. For Yosemite use: OSX_Yosemite_Zenbook_ux32a_i5_Clover OSX_Yosemite_Zenbook_ux32a_i5_Kexts For Mavericks: OSX_Mavericks_Zenbook_ux32a_i5_Clover OSX_Mavericks_Zenbook_ux32a_i5_Kexts Photo of happiness I have attached AppleHDA from Mavericks with is working in Yosemite. If you find solution how to run audio with native Yosemite kext please inform us, thanks! You should replace native Intel Centrino Wi-Fi card to be able to run Wi-Fi. I have used Broadcom BCM943225HM without BT. You can found Kext for it in Kexts archive. Working: Video Audio (Mavericks AppleHDA patched) Fn keys Camera HDMI Video Battery Sleep (not so fast, but seems it is working) Known Issues: Slowly switching off (Yosemite, I know here is field of improving) HDMI Audio does not work Need to be investigated: Card reader. (I really don't think that Card reader is working). Hope we can improve this system setup. Not relevant information now (keep it here for medical history): Specs: Intel® Core™ i5 3317U Intel® HM76 Express Chipset DDR3 1600 MHz SDRAM 2Gb internal + 8Gb Kingston Integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4000 Broadcom working Wi-Fi card (Replaced from Intel) 3x USB 3.0 (No 2.0 ports) Bootloader: Clover r3065 Virtualization and Vt-d disabled in BIOS. Post revisions: 1. In case of PCI configuration End stuck (with my files) I tried to pass USBBusFix=Yes and got the same situation as with 12arity files (mbinit stuck). 2. GraphicsEnabler=No does not help me proceed with mbinit stuck. 3. I have tried with cpus=1 and got new output (3rd screen) 4. I have removed slide=0 form flags and got new state (4th screen) 5. I have placed AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext into kexts folder and got the same as with cpus=1. So I decided leave AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and remove cpus=1 flag. Seems this is the farthest point where I was able to reach. I have uploaded my current setup (On Dropbox, because it is too big to be uploaded here). Please take a look. I don't know what to do next 6. Please see update in TL:TR section. We have working system now. Good luck! And if you got any problem with this hardware please ask here.

    10.10.3 + win 7, GA-Z97-HD3, i5 4690

    Buon giorno a tutti ragazzi! Un mio amico mi ha chiesto di far girare Yosemite 10.10.3 e win 7 su questa configurazione hardware: Mobo: GA-Z97-HD3 CPU: i5 4690 GPU: da integrare il mese prossimo o tra 2 mesi 2 dischi ssd, uno per Yosemite 10.10.3 e l'altro per win 7 Ho preparato la pendrive seguendo questa guida http://www.insanelym...over-v2k-r2981/ Non riesco ad avviare l'installazione, arrivo alla schermata di clover ma dopo aver scelto di avviare l'installazione si blocca, posto una foto per farvi vedere
  11. Hola a todos ¿Alguno de ustedes ha podido solucionar el audio del HDMI en la Intel HD 4600? Tengo una PC armada, con un Intel i5 Haswell, gráficos Intel HD Graphics 4600 1536 MB y audio Realtek® ALC887-VD2 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC, la cual la conecto a una pantalla LG mediante un cable HDMI genérico. Con anterioridad busqué en un forum muy famoso una solución de Toleda y después de leer y leer, y volver a leer el método (en verdad es muy confuso ) solamente terminé solucionando el audio mediante audífonos pero sin que funcionaran los puertos frontales de la PC (tenía que usar los traseros). USO CLOVER. Estaría completamente agradecido de poder solucionar este problema de una vez. Si deseas ayudarme y necesitan algún dato, archivo o elemento díganmelo .

    Lenovo z580: i5-3210m kexts

    Version 1.0


    It's a my mkext for Lenovo z580 notebook with i5-3210m Intel CPU. Works great - everything, but WLAN card not working, so you should replace this for Atheros (in my example is 8295 and works great). Thanks for download, and sorry for my bad English.
  13. Hey Guys, first topic post! I have a Samsung RF511 (I5 Sandy, 8GB RAM, Intel 3000 graphics) and It will not boot Mavericks without a USB bootloader still inside. I have tried to install Chameleon and Enoch Multiple times to the HDD, but with no apparent luck, however... I think that it has something to do with the F4 Recovery option at the POST or BIOS startup screen , as when I pressed it, It booted up chameleon , I clicked on OS X, and it crashed! So I formatted the HDD and tried again, nothing at all this time! Don't know if this matters but... When the USB is in it boots up but when its out, it gives me a Error: "Reboot with proper boot device, or insert boot device and press a key" If ANYONE knows of a solution, I will be of great appreciation -UPDATE- I have now followed this guide TO THE LETTER to boot Mavericks: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla- os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/ However the USB still won't work ???

  14. Good day, I'm trying to install OSX El Capitan on my laptop all the time. I have a laptop with a Intel CORE i5 430M Arrandale CPU and first generation Intel HD Graphics. The problem is the graphics card. I have deleted the kext for the graphics card to install El Capitan. After installing it boots also without error messages, but then comes a graphic error. The graphics error was already before I had deleted the Kext before installing. The graphics error should not come, however, if I had deleted the kext? I can install OSX successfully, but when booting comes a graphic error. I have also searched the Internet for solutions. The solutions I had found only work after a successful boot. I have tried it with other graphics kext, but without success. I also have no other computer with OSX. Best regards
  15. I made a spreadsheet comparing all the available Haswell & Skylake Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs. My goal was to find the best low-power processor for use in a low-profile HTPC. I thought I'd post it in case anyone else finds it useful. Let me know if you do! https://goo.gl/LKckKP
  16. OS X Yosemite on The Surface Pro 3 ------------------------------------------------------ I wrote this guide with a Hackintosh newbie in mind. I walk everything out step-by-step. And, know that you are following this guide at your own risk. I take no responsibility in any loss of data or broken machine. However, I'm confident that that won't happen if you are careful. What is not working: WIFI Bluetooth Touchscreen : Alex.doud is currently coding touchscreen and trackpad drivers for the Surface Pro 3's i2c controller. Sleep Trackpad gestures What works but is buggy: Graphics: QE/CI + HiDPI works with minor graphic glitches Audio does not play through the headphone jack ------------------------------------------------------ Requirements Hardware: USB Flash Drive: 8 GB or more Access to a computer running OS X (Can be done in a virtual machine) Optional: A USB Hub, USB Keyboard, and USB Mouse (Just in case the Type Cover doesn't work during install) Software: OS X 10.10 Yosemite Install Application Surface Pro 3 Driver Pack.zip Clover bootloader Kext Utility ------------------------------------------------------ Step 1: Making Space for OS X Boot into Windows 8 On the Start Screen type: compmgmt.msc and press enter. This should open "Computer Management" on your desktop. Click on "Disk Management" under the "Storage" header on the left panel. Right click on the "Windows (C:)" block on the bottom half of the middle window and choose "Shrink Volume" Here you can shrink your Windows partition to make room for you OS X install. Choose a value over 15GB to give yourself room to install OS X and have storage left over. Optional: Right click on the new partition and rename it "OS X" (or something you will remember) -- This will make it easier to pick out in the OS X install if need be. ------------------------------------------------------ Step 2: Creating the OS X Install USB This step requires access to OS X. If you already have the "Install OS X Yosemite" application in your Application folder skip down to step 2b : Step 2a: Downloading OS X Yosemite Open the App Store Download the OS X Yosemite installer Step 2b: Preparing the USB Drive Open the Disk Utility application found in the Utilities folder inside the Application Folder. Click on your USB Drive on the left panel. Choose "Erase" on the top bar Choose "Mac OS X Extended" as the Format and name the drive "Install" Once completed open the Terminal application (Also in the Utilities folder) Copy and paste this command at the prompt: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --applicationpath "/Applications/Install OS X Yosemite.app" --nointeraction This step takes about 30 minutes to finish. When it's done you will need to then install the Clover boot loader to the USB. Open the Clover installer found in the "Surface Pro 3 Driver Pack" Click Continue twice and then choose "Change Install Location" Choose the "Install OS X Yosemite" USB drive and press Continue Click "Customize". Here check: Install for UEFI booting only Themes Drivers64UEFI Click Install and wait for it to finish. Once it finishes you should see a new "EFI" drive mounted. Navigate to the "CLOVER" folder found in the "EFI" folder at root. Copy "config.plist" from the "Surface Pro 3 Driver Pack" here Navigate to the "patched" folder found in the "ACPI" folder. Copy the contents of "DSDT" from the "Surface Pro 3 Driver Pack" here. Navigate back to the "CLOVER" folder. Navigate to the "10.10" folder found in the "kexts" folder. Copy the contents of "KEXTs" from the "Surface Pro 3 Driver Pack" here. Your done, eject the USB drive. ------------------------------------------------------ Step 3: Installing OS X Yosemite Hold the Up button of the volume rocker on the Surface Pro 3 while powering up the machine. Touch or click on "Secure Boot Control" choose "Disabled" Touch or click on "Exit Setup" Power the machine off if it boots into Windows 8. Insert your USB drive into the USB port of the Surface Pro 3. Hold the Down button on the volume rocker on the Surface Pro 3 while powering the machine. Once Clover boots navigate to "Boot OS X Install from Install OS X Yosemite" and press space Go down to "Boot Mac OS X with Injected kexts". Wait... the installer will boot eventually. Once booted choose the Disk Utility application from either the top bar or from the window that the installer opens up to (sometimes). Here you will locate your "OS X" partition (or whatever you named it) and choose Erase like you did for the USB drive. Choose "Mac OS X Extended, Journaled" and name it whatever you want. Close the disk utility and follow the installation prompts. Several times I had the installer "finish" and reboot, but it wasn't complete. If you don't see your OS X drive in Clover after the installer reboot, re-run the installer and it will continue on it's own. ------------------------------------------------------ Step 4: Finishing Touches Power off the machine Hold the Down button on the volume rocker to boot from the USB. Once in the Clover boot loader Navigate to "Boot Mac OS X from <OS X partition name>" Press space and go down to "Boot Mac OS X with Injected kexts". Yosemite SHOULD boot and work. If your type cover does not work on boot you will need to modify your "IOUSBFamily.kext". Step 4a: Modifying ISOUSBFamily.kext for a working Type Cover You can do this step on another computer with OS X or you can do it on your new install Open a new Finder window by clicking on the Finder icon on the dock. Click on the "Go" option in the top toolbar and choose "Computer" Double click on "Yosemite", followed by "System", then "Library", and finally "Extensions" Scroll down and find "IOUSBFamily.kext", copy it to your desktop. Rename the KEXT in your Extensions folder to "IOUSBFamily.kext.bak" Right click on the "IOUSBFamily.kext" on the desktop and choose "Show Package Contents" Double click on "Contents", and then "Plugins" Right Click on "IOUSBHIDDriver.kext"and choose "Show Package Contents" Double click on "Contents" Right click on "Info.plist", select "Open with", and choose "Other" Choose "Textedit" from the application choices.
