  1. How to shrink os x .vmdk in vmware workstation 12 As most people probably notice is that .vmdk file expands and never shrinks down back again it just gets bigger and bigger. The solution to fix this in vmware workstation 12 is this: Open terminal on your guest os OS X machine and run this command: Macintosh\ HD is the name of your harddrive so it might not be Macinthosh \HD for you so check that you type the correct name for your HardDrive. Use "sudo" instead of "su" if its yosemite or newer su diskutil secureErase freespace 0 Macintosh\ HD It will take some time and when it goes 90+% it will give you an error message that it ran out space and failed just ignore that and let it finish. When it has finished shutdown the Guest os and run this command in CMD (command prompt) as administrator on the main OS. path-of-vmware-folder\ vmware-vdiskmanager.exe -k path-of-virtual-machine\guest-name.vmdk Exampel of the one i had to use and dont forget the " " or you will get an error message and it wont start. C:\"Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmware-vdiskmanager.exe" -k "E:\Virtual Machines\OS X 10.9 Mavericks\OS X 10.9 Mavericks.vmdk" This will take some time also so but when its done your .vmdk will now be shrinked down to its real and correct size. I have added and changed so many files on my os x that it became 70gb+ in size but after running this it shrinked back down to just 10,4gb. The information was gathered from this blog but the commands he had didnt make vmware workstation 12 so it will look different from the blog and he didnt add su to the command and without it will stop. http://blog.oshim.net/2013/01/shrink-sparse-disk-image-of-mac-os-x.html
  2. This forum is vastly popular among all Hackintosh users. There are many topics covered here and there. Most of the important topics pinned section wise.But for a newbie its not easy to decide which guide they should follow. Note : First search about your system in this forum, Other may have updated guide suitable for exact same system as you.If not follow this guide. I will try to try to point every important topics here in one. All original posts are linked, Go to original posts for detailed guide on that specific subject. BIOS SETTING While it is beneficial to have a unlocked BIOS (Mostly for Laptop Users) but it is not mandatory to install OS X. There are some basic things you should check in your BIOS before installing. Disable VT-d (Virtualization). Or if you want to use virtualisation then use clover boot argument "dart=0" Set SATA mode to "AHCI" Set DVMT memory to 128 / 64 MB. If setting not present then you may need DVMT-prealloc patch in clover.(Checkout graphics section) Disable secure boot. Disable fastboot. (There are few laptops which works with first boot too.But you should turn off during installation ) you may use MBR or UEFI mode. But it is recommended to use UEFI due to it's many advantages over MBR. ( EX- faster device initialisation, Native support of Mac OS) MBR users need to apple MBR patch to their USB Installer media. [Catalina MBR Patch] POINTs TO REMEMBER 1. SMBIOS you need select SMBIOS of a similar Mac model as per your hardware. With unique and unused (Not Invalid) serial number. Use CloverConfigurator and select a Mac model which has similar CPU and GPU as your system. (Exact same CPU ID not required) Then Keep changing serial numbers. Check newly generated Serial Number in [Apple Support Coverage page.] If warranty details are available then change again.(You must not use serial numbers which are already registered) Continue till you get a serial number which either says "Invalid". It means you have now a official serial number but No Mac has been produced with that serial number. Use that serial number. Once you log in to Apple Account, You should not change your serial number. 2. KEXT Installation There are three locations for Kext \System\Library\Extensions : Exclusive for Apple System Kexts \Library\Extensions : For third party Kexts \Clover\Kexte\Other : Kext Injection during Boot You can install any kext to either EFI\Clover\Kext\Other or else \Library\Extensions During installation you can keep essential kexts in Clover\Kext\Other folder. But after Installation you should move kexts to L\E. As kext in L\E are loaded in to kernel Cache and monitored by kernel.It will make your system more stable and less boot time. [Detailed Information] USB MEDIA CREATION 1. USB Installer Media Creation To create a USB Installer media you need to device with Mac OS installed. (If you don't have a Mac then use the this guide to make a installation drive from windows.) Most recommended process is to use a Mac as follows, Download Installer App from Apple store. Open "Disk Utility" and format USB Flash Drive to "Mac OS Journaled Extended" format. Then run the following command on terminal The command is an example for "Mojave". Other can be found in Apple support page. sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USBNAME --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app --nointeraction 5. Then install Bootloader to the USB Device. 2. Boot Loader : First thing to build a Hackintosh is emulation of a real Mac so that you can boot in to a OSX Installer.As your system can't directly boot a Mac OS, You need to boot either Clover , Chameleon or OpenCore. After booting in to these boot loader, you can boot in to OSX as well as your other OS like windows and linux. After many years,these boot loaders not only help to boot but also handles a big part to make your system more compatible to OSX. So choose wisely 2.1 Chameleon/Enoch Chameleon was a oldest bootloader which was first developed to support MBR boot devices. Later they adopted to UEFI also. I still remember using it during the era of snow leopard, lion Support page Download 2.2 Clover : Clover is most popular boot loader today. It supports UEFI and MBR. It has features like on fly DSDT, SSDT and kext patching. Device properties injection, fake properties injection. You can natively update OSX, Use Recovery option.Most popular and highest support. Support Page Download 2.3 OpenCore : it was mostly meant for advance user due to its feature to install directly to system BIOS.Where Clover and Chameleon can be used from hard disk or USB storage device.If you have knowledge of BIOS moving then you can go for it.It also can be used from hard disk too. Support Page Download First download and install Any one of them to Installer USB. Configure it, Once you get it to work, then copy the same to your hard disk to make it permanent. Download Clover configurator to edit clover configuration. if you are new then download a nearest system spec prebuilt config file from rehabman's repo or else you may search in this forum too. then fine tune it. Clover Configurator Clover Config Repo 3. SMC Emulation: You need SMC Emulation to feed the OSX with a machitosh firmware.Also to translate your device basic firmware output to Macintosh support.(Ex : your system sensor data, ) There are 2 major options for you. 3.1 FakeSMC Stability wise, would it be better to use FakeSMC for its long development period and a large amount of documentation around it.It is more stable and if you have old hardware then batter is to go with FakeSMC. Download 3.2 VirtualSMC It is new but filled with features like (MMIO Implementation, 2nd gen firmware support). Many are shifting to VirtualSMC these days. Also I personally like it's new way to manage battery,No more need of battery patch to most of the devices. Download Download the latest release, then copy the kext to EFI\Clover\Kext\Other 4.CPU Compatibility: Intel: All CPUs starting from Intel Core 2 Duo upto newer CPUs are supported. AMD: Most AMD CPU are supported but its required modified kernel. Support Page Sometimes latest release CPU does not get support unless Apple releases systems of same CPU generations. So you may not get support for all Mac OS version's support to all CPUs.In few cases you may use compatible CPU ids using clover's Fake CPU ID option. 5.Graphics : While all intel integrated Graphics are supported natively, DualGPU are not supported. So first thing you need is to disable switchable graphics (AMD,nVidia) and use only Intel graphics only. If you have discrete GPU which is not tied to Intel HD then you can use it. (Mostly desktop, few laptop which comes without IntelHD, discrete switching capability in BIOS) Installation of WhateverGreen So the first thing you need is WhateverGreen. It is a kext which works to fix most common graphics problems.(Ex- Sleep Issue, Brightness Control, Graphics Injection) Nvidia & AMD mixup kext are also integrated to WhateverGreen. So it is recommended to install WhateverGreen irrespective of your graphics card. Download the kext and copy to EFI\Clover\kexts\Other Support Page Download Disable discrete GPU (For Dual Graphics Laptop) As I mentioned above, you need to disable dualGPU first. There are few different techniques you can adopt to (Use any one) Disable in BIOS Setting (If such setting available) Use boot argument "-wegnoegpu" with WhateverGreen Disabling GPU using DSDT 5.1 Intel HD To use Intel HD properly, Only one thing you need is "Whatevergreen". It will help, native Apple framebuffer to load. If your BIOS does not have DVMT Setting,Then add "DVMT-prealloc Patch" in Hackintool's Advanced patch option.Also use proper framebuffer patch according to your system. A detailed guide of IntelHD frame buffer patching is available here by Headkaze 5.2 Nvidia GPU Nvidia Web Driver Support Page 5.3 AMD GPU 6. PS2 Input devices: All most all laptop keyboard and touchpad uses PS2 port.Also Many desktop users still using PS2 devices.As Mac OS does not support PS2 devices, you need a PS2 driver called VodooPS2 first. When it comes to VoodooPS2, There is two major options. 5.1 Rehabman's Voodoo-PS2-Controller This is oldest built.So it is more stable and supports a long range of devices. Download 5.2 Acidanthera's VoodooPS2 It is new and supports native trackpad gestures. While writing, it has limited number of hardware support. But with time this will involve. Download Just download and copy the kext to EFI\Clover\Kext\Other. Or if you can not get it to work then use USB Mouse and A USB Keyboard. 7.NVMe Drives From Os X 10.13, NMVE Drives are natively supported, So no need of any patches anymore. At beginning Apple only allowed few specific NVMe drives (Up to OsX 10.12). So if your motherboard supports NVMe drive booting then You can use NVMe patches in clover to get NVMe support. thanks to Pike R. Alpha's Bin patches for NVMEFamily.kext . Support Page Download POST INSTALLATION 1. CPU Power Management Once you made proper adjustment to graphics, You need to look in to power management. While power management is mostly important for laptops,Desktop users also should look in to this so that their CPU can run optimal and smoothly.Power management is highly dependent on CPU and IGPU. There are few different methods to get it working.The basic method is to use a SSDT.aml file generated "Pike R Alpha's Script".It is recommended and most stable. Alternatively if your system is intel 4th gen or higher then you may use XCPM method. Also HWP mode if you have 6th gen or higher CPU. 1.1. Using auto generate states This process is only applies to first generation intel processor or older. Only enable "GeneratePStates" & "Generate CStates" in config. No need to SSDT.aml Sandybridge or higher CPU must not use this method.It will result kernel to Panic. 1.2 Using Custom SSDT As I already mentioned,It is the most stable option and results optimised power consumption. Download. Piker R alpha's ssdtPTGen.sh from here. Run this file and create SSDT.aml for your CPU. Copy to EFI\Clover\ACPI\Patched . Uncheck all options like generate pState,Plugin type in SSDT section of clover config. Drop CPU related SSDT table 'CpuPm' and 'Cpu0Ist'. 1.3. XCPM Method XCPM (Intel Speedstep Technology) was introduced on 4th gen Intel processors. This allow to handle CPU usage and power consumption dynamically according to load.Also it is integrated with Intel HD. Graphics(GFX0) should be renamed to IGPU by clover or in DSDT. Remove SSDT.aml from Clover\ACPI\Patched folder. Disable all SSDT generation methods. Enable "PluginType=YES" in clover config or else use this (download and compile) clover hot patch. 4th gen and 5th gen users should apply LPC patch into method label _DSM parent_label LPCB remove_entry; into device label LPCB insert begin Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)\n {\n Store (Package (0x02) {\n "compatible", Buffer () {"pci8086,8c44"}\n }, Local0)\n DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))\n Return (Local0)\n } end; 1.4 XCPM + HWP Method HWP was introduced during Skylake CPUs.The new tech is supposed to make the processor respond much quicker to performance burst requests as well as improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the performance bursts themselves. It does this by handing some extent of the frequency control back to the processor – which, in conjunction with the OS (which needs to allow it to take over control of P-States) can perform much better. Detailed guide to HWP As you can now see your CPU performance using Intel Power Gadget or HWMoniter (Istat Menu for VirtualSMC Users) . While you are using SMBios of a nearest CPU, It may very a little bit in case of frquency,Turbo frequency and idling speed(LFM). (for example I am using MacBook Pro 14,1 SMBios,So my system is idling as 1.30GHZ which is a bit higher for me.Almost half speed of my CPU) So you need to adjust your CPU frequency, Turbo Frequency and Idling speed(Keep it to minimum as 400MHz or 800MHz )as per your SMBIOS. Download FrequencyVector Editor By Pike R Alpha Choose your SMBios. It will Automatically Patch your LFM to minimum. You just change CPU max frequency and turbo frequency. Once you are done your system will have a optimised CPU Power management . 2. USB port Management From OS X 10.11, Apple changed the way USB ports work.(thanks to Rehabman for this info) As Mac OS uses ACPI to detect USB ports in a system, it often gets wrong value for a Hackintosh. So to solver the issue, you need a "USB port injector kext" to inject all your ports. Also OSx has 15 port limit, you need to apply a port limit patch in clover.

So you should disable mostly unused ports using DSDT hot patches (SSDT-UIAC.aml) ,Then remove port limit patch. To do that download Hackintool and go to to USB tab. Now insert USB3.0 and USB 2.0 devices to every port, And rectify the details (Connector Type) accordingly. Once you finished checking all port, remove all the listed USBPorts which are not turned green(ports are not usable). Then Export SSDT-UIAC.aml ,install to clover/ACPI/Patched . USB Power Management: Most of the laptop has EC device named mostly as EC0 or H_EC . Rename the device to EC by Clover DSDT patch to load ApplePowerBusController under EC. (You can confirm in IoReg) If you don't have a EC device then add a Fake EC Device. Newer Mac device use device named USBX.So People who are using SMBIOS higher then iMac 7,1 or MacBook 13,1 should add an device named USBX under scope _SB . If you used Hackintool to eliminate unused USB ports then you must have gotten SSDT-USBX.aml if needed for your system. DefinitionBlock ("", "SSDT", 2, "hack", "USBX", 0x00000000) { Device (_SB.USBX) { Name (_ADR, Zero) // _ADR: Address Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { If (!Arg2) { Return (Buffer (One) { 0x03 // . }) } Return (Package (0x08) { "kUSBSleepPortCurrentLimit", 0x0834, "kUSBSleepPowerSupply", 0x13EC, "kUSBWakePortCurrentLimit", 0x0834, "kUSBWakePowerSupply", 0x13EC }) } } } 3. Audio Audio is almost common issue due large range of audio Codecs and controllers . There are three major options for Audio fix. All have different way to enable sound so installation guides are also different. Must 'rename HDAS to HDEF' By DSDT edit or Clover. 3.1 VoodooHDA It is the oldest kext built to fix audio devices. This works as a alternative option to Apple's native AppleHDA. While VoodooHDA supports large number of devices, It provides a lower sound quality for few cases. download 3.2 AppleHDA This was developed by mir0ne and it is able to use native AppleHDA. It involves patching of AppleHDA kext present in S\L\E Download 3.3 AppleALC An open source kernel extension enabling native macOS HD audio for not officially supported codecs without any filesystem modifications. So this is the most recommended option. Download Support Page 4. Battery While battery is handled by firmware only. Proper kext is needed to notify system regarding battery status. To enable Battery icon in notification bar. Also you can use the features present in "Power Saver ' Section in setting. There is two major option, with completely different approach. 4.1 ACPI-Battery-Manager This kext uses ACPI methods to notify battery status.So you need to patch your DSDT first. Then install the kext. BatteryManager kext should be loaded under device BAT0 in IOReg. Download Battery patches (By Rehabman) 4.2 VirtualSMC Battery plugin If you are using VirtualSMC then you have already got a SMCBattery plugin. It uses a different to approach. So you don't need any DSDT patch.It works out of the box in most of the cases. If not then check you IOReg first.AppleACPIACAdapter kext should be loaded under device ADP1. If no ADP1 device is present,Then rename your AC Adapter device (Something like AC, ACAD) to ADP1 . [Original Post] Download link is present in SMC Section. 5.Connectivity Connectivity is a major part Hackintosh. Properly installation of ethernet is required to iMessage activation. Also bluetooth and Wifi need to be configured properly to continuity and Handoff feature to work. Ethernet Just follow the support page for your Ethernet card. Intel Ethernet : [Support] [Download] Realtek Ethernet : [Download] Atheros Wifi Supported Cards : AR9285/AR9280 Atheros wifi cards are supported up to 10.12 . While it can be used further using older kext but you may get random system crashes. You can use various method like custom injector Kext or using DSDT patches. It is recommended to change with supported Broadcom card. Broadcom Wifi Supported Cards : As apple uses Broadcom WLAN cards for their Mac.Cards like 94360 are natively supported , Others few (Like popular 94352Z) are compatible with OS X with Wifi AC (5.0 ghz) support. In few cases you may need to edit country code for Wifi AC to work. Broadcom Wifi Guide Broadcom Bluetooth Note: With 10.15 Bluetooth Injection method has been changed.( Discussion topic ) Use this fork Broadcom-Ram patch for bluetooth by Acidanthera. A deprecated guide by Toleda, It contains a lot of information for Wifi & Bluetooth.Must check out Brdcm Wifi + Bluetooth Guide Bluetooth Continuity Continuity is feature to enable features like handoff, Instant Hotspot features . Only for iPhone users though ... (Apple Continuity) Just download the kext and install it. It will take care of rest. Download (.....Continues) When it comes to Hackintosh, There are a lot to talk about. I will keep updating this post for next few days....

Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza. dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni Immagine Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi" Immagine ===================== METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD. Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script Esempio =========================== Metodo 2 L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta con Mavericks. Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso” Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così. Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso. Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”??? Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale. A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio. Comando per creare USB con Yosemite: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con El Capitan sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14) Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14....

    Hello, It's been a while since I last attempted to install OS X on some hardware and in honesty I'm confused about what to do with an AMD cpu If someone could help me identify which bootloader and kexts to use etc. I would greatly appreciate it. Specs: CPU - AMD FX-6350 GPU - Gainward GTX 660 2GB Motherboard - MSI 970 Gaming - http://www.msi.com/p...l#hero-overview RAM - 8GB of assorted budget DDR3 RAM I'm hoping to run the latest release of OS X which I believe at present is 10.10.5 Again , thank you for any help given
  5. Hello! I've been using this Hackintosh computer for a while and I've been quite happy with it since it works smoothly with a Ralink DWA-125 Wi-Fi dongle but I've been having this little issue I haven't found an answer to… My Wi-Fi connection freezes and collapses when I'm running apps as Logic or Pro Tools and when I try to load a webpage I get a "Unable to connect to the Internet" message, which appears not only on Chrome but also in Safari, Firefox and any other browser. I included a screenshot. I highly doubt it's a hardware problem since this didn't happen with iAtkos or Kalyway distros while using the same apps I mentioned above. How can I solve this issue? Thanks in advance! EDIT: Forgot to mention that I created the installer with MyHack and a retail 10.8 image. I had the same issue with 10.6 and 10.7, both installations created from retail images.
  6. Quite simply, ive just done a fresh install of iAtkos 5i, and it said it was successful, however after the restart, it wont boot anything. The apple logo flashes on then it restarts the laptop. Ive tried everything from typing rd=0,1 -v -f -x to just -v and still no luck >.< i have also tried Chameleon (burned to a disk and booted up) and ###### (burned to disk also) but chameleon hangs here and ###### just goes black and never loads anything. Ive installed it twice and chose chameleon and the other option but that didnt change anything either. What have I, or am i doing wrong XD ive googled it for about 2 hours and still cant solve the problem >.< My laptop specs are 40gb Hard drive 1gb Ram Pentium 4 3.6ghz processor ATI Radeon IGP 345M 128mb reaktek ALC203 - 16-bit CD-quality stereo sound I dont know if i need to add anymore o.O

  9. https://vid.me/RAeO These are 2 different drives. One is purely Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 on the SSD, and the other is Windows 8.1 on a Hard Drive. Look at the 3 boot options there in Clover UEFI. Yes I installed Windows UEFI mode Also. SO heres my complaint. There are 3 extra options that don't work to boot into Windows. How Can I get rid of those? i just wanna keep the OS X Yosemite disk, the recovery partition for Yosemite and the last one on the right as that is the one that helps me boot into Windows. BTW can any one guide me through how to make a backup from my Hackintosh SSD to a hard drive partiton, on the same drive as windows? What I did to install windows on the HDD: Unplugged my SSD Plugged my HDD Put in the windows USB installer for Windows 8.1 clicked advanced setup, made sure drive was clean Let it install as usual Went through post install business such as updates and the drivers installation Plugged up my SSD for my Hackintosh, changed the boot to Timeout=2 in Clover Configurator Went to the clover bootloader screen and saw that.

  11. Hi, I tried to install iATKOS S3 V2 on my old Acer Extensa 4620 (not 4620z). The installation worked (though I had to remove the battery), and i could not boot into the OS. So i tried -v -x, and it worked, and I could set it up. But the verbose mode showed a lot of errors about something like AppleUSBUHCI.kext not loading or something. The main issue is that my trackpad isnt working, usb mouse not working, wireless mouse also tried, not working. But the keyboard is working.! Any suggestions on how to get back my mouse(stuck on top left of screen)?? (Last resort, I can install it again, if someone tells me what drivers to enable, because the last install worked on some random selection of drivers) Thanks in advance ---------------------------------- SYSTEM SPECS (if required) [ If any more required, ask) ---------------------------------- Model : Acer Extensa 4620 Processer: Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GHz RAM : 3 GB DDR2 Graphics / Display : Mobile intel 965 express chipset family (I also see X3100 somewhere) BIOS : (Dont know for sure) Phoenix v1.00PARTTBL HDD : 160GB ??

  13. Installed ML on HP HDX 16 using ###### method. Then used Chameleon 2.1 as bootloader. Noted that after install, whenever I updated the boot config file (org.Chameleon.Boot.plist in /Extra) using GUI tools (e.g. Chameleon Wizard), the permissions would change and the system would freeze during booting. Upon closer inspection, I realized that the permissions on the file which allowed the system to boot fully was 666 (rw-rw-rw-). Every time the permission changed to prevent write permission to "group", "others", the system would refuse to boot. Changing them back to 666 (chmod 666 /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist) would allow the system to boot smoothly again. So to everyone who encounter unexplained boot freezes, I would giving this a shot; it may just work out for you. PS: Sorry if this has been covered earlier; didn't search the forums.
  14. Hey there mates, I'm about to add an SSD to my rig for Windows and I plan on using my current 1TB drive for storage and games. I was just wondering if I could format that as GUID (or GPT in windows) and allocate 800GB~ for storage (formatted as NTFS) and the other 200GB~ for OS X (formatted as Journaled)? Would that be fine or will I run into a problem? Thanks
  15. Hi everyone, I'm having a weird issue, when I do certain tasks the OS freezes and becomes unresponsive, at that point the only way to "fix" that is force shutdown pressing the power button from laptop. The only two ways I reproduce that are: Using Box Sync, when that program starts syncing after a while (not to much) the OS hangs At first boot when OS restores opened programs and Google Chrome has a few tabs (like around, I don't know, 30 for example), Chrome starts restoring every tab and OS hangs after a little bit (while restoring tabs) Anybody experienced this or have any ideas about it?

  16. La toute première bêta du nouvel OS X d'Apple nommé El Capitan apporte de nouvelles fonctionnalités mais aussi de nouvelles protections. Des protections qui peuvent poser quelques problèmes aux petits bidouilleurs de la communauté Hackint0sh mais pas seulement. System Integrity Protection (alias rootless) Même si cela n'avait pas été annoncé officiellement lors du keynote, Apple a bel-et-bien implémenté une nouvelle protection nommée Rootless. Sa ligne de code a même été repérée dans le système par un ingénieur en sécurité Pedro Vilaça. com.apple.xpc.launchd.rootless.plist. Même si cette protection a encore ses inconnues, il semblerait que sa fonction principale soit d'empêcher la modification des fichiers systèmes. Trim Malgré cela, Apple semble avoir laisser une porte ouverte en laissant accès à une commande en ligne nommée trimforce, qui permet d'activer la fonction TRIM sur n'importe quel SSD. La technique semble être toute simple... après avoir démarré sur la partition de restauration, il faut utiliser l'utilitaire Security Configuration afin de désactiver la nouvelle protection System Integrity Protection (alias rootless). Une fois ceci fait, il faut passer la commande sudo trimforce enable. Même si cela semble bien fonctionner, Apple tient tout de même à mettre en garde quant à son utilisation : Cet outil force l’activation du TRIM sur tous les volumes appropriés, quand bien même l’intégrité de leurs données lors de l’utilisation de cette fonction n’aurait pas été éprouvée. En utilisant cet outil pour activer le TRIM, vous reconnaissez qu’Apple n’est pas responsable des conséquences, [comme] une corruption ou une perte de données.

  18. Hey guys, I just have installed Yosemite on my HDD over the installer (I've used Nireshs distro if thats necessary) and then - like shown in the article - unplugged my USB pen and restarted my notebook then. But it always shows me then "Please insert a boot media and so on...."... when I try entering the BIOS (with UEFI Support), it shows me under "Boot Options" only my CD/DVD drive.... it doesn't show me "P0:XXXXXXXXX" anymore... Some infos: I've installed Chameleon EFI and Standard, but with only EFI or only Standard it's the same issue Same with Clover There is no option to select but it was before... Secure boot is also disabled like it was before and I'm just able to add a new boot option when my USB pen is plugged in but then just over the USB pen... I don't know what to do now... I have only 1 HDD on my notebook... before that procedure it showed me smth like: [(ubuntu) P0:XXXXXXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXX] [Windows Boot Manager (P0:XXXXXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXX] and now: [P1: CD/DVD Drive A] and nothing else... and I can't add something ... reinstalling with all bootloader and options didn't have solved the problem, I tried many things like marking that partition as boot in gparted (live disc)... but no success...
  19. Alright, so I've been able to find guides for laptops similar to mine, but none that are PRECISELY for the Lenovo Thinkpad T440. Not the S model, but just the T440. I manged to pick this laptop up for a sweet deal on eBay, and i'd like to run MacOS on it if possible. Would it be fine to try a VM then try installing for real later? I have Windows 10 with a key already installed MBR/CSM Style and would like to keep it on here, if at all possible, but I could wipe it if necessary to do a UEFI boot. I initially wanted to try Sierra, but it seems Sierra is relatively undocumented for any similar thinkpad. My specs are as follows: Intel Core i5-4200U @ 1.6GHz, turbo boosts up to 2.3 Ghz 4GB Ram (going to another 4gb dimm) 500GB HDD (will eventually add a m.2 ssd later for macOS if it can be installed Thats about all the important specs, I think. If theres anything else necessary, I'd be glad to list it. (: I did manage to make an installer and boot it Legacy style into Sierra but the trackpad and keyboard didn't respond. It also took awhile to get to the installer. Is there a way I can Install to a USB or something to test it, or is a VM the best way to go about it for a test run? Thanks. Sorry for rambling.
  20. Obviously, I know it has something to do with CPU power management or FakeSMC not initiating for some reason, but I've tried: Replacing FakeSMC with a new fresh one from RehabMan's repo booting with almost every flag i can think of trying to use a clean install from the terminal and with clover Using Pandora's Box to create the installer My specs are: Intel Core i3 - 4360 NVIDIA Gigabyte GeForce GTX 950 OC Edition (OC'd a bit) powering 2 monitors, 1 HDMI and 1 DVI. GA-Z97M-DS3H My machine is currently running 10.11.5 on El Capitan, and I've ran Yosemite on it before, so obviously it is capable, but I'm pretty confused at to why my machine won't boot the installer. The only issues I've ever run into were having to set up CodecCommander for my current Install using Clover. I'm booting UEFI btw. If anyone could help me out I'd really appreciate it. I can provide anything you need such as IOReg, etc.
  21. Here's the rather surprising story - in addition to a bare-metal installation of OS X (Mavericks currently), I also have several OS X-based VMs. I created a new one (basically just for yuks) to test out USB stick installs in VMware Workstation 10 for Windows (suitably unlocked). The strangeness is that a stick that I created according to the directions from the current public beta fails natively, but works in VMware. It's not a similar stick, but the SAME stick. Natively, it will time-out (graphically) and go to sleep; however, it installed in VMware just fine; it is, in fact, running as I type this. Is the nVidia graphics support (the only difference in a native install's favor) that badly broken in Yosemite compared to Mavericks? (My native Mavericks install works just fine with Clover legacy as the loader - the SAME version of Clover is on the USB stick; 2803 for the curious. The stick itself is an "OEM" Kingston USB stick supplied to MicroCenter connected to a standard USB v2 port driven by the Intel G41 chipset.)

    Hey InsanelyMac/OSx86, FtP,LtL I havent seen much in terms of HP support, and next to no hardware support for AMD in general (I know that it is unofficial). I don't want to partition my hard drive, and have no support. Hardware list is here -> http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=uk&lc=en&docname=c04320734 I know that a small list of Radeon Cards are supported, and because the processor (AMD E2-6110) is an APU (CPU+GPU) the R2 is in question. Any support would be helpful.
  24. Hi ladies and gentlemen, long time lurker, first time poster. After my first (and succesfull) Hackintosh installation, my Windows 8 MBR was messed up by Chameleon. In order to be able to boot again, I would need to make the Windows 8 HDD (I have OS X on one HDD and Windows 8 on another one) active via terminal (right?) and repair via a rescue disk/usb. Something tells me that my OS X boot files would be messed up by Windows after the repair. So, in order to boot OS X again, I would need to repair it using a myHack USB, and install Chameleon again. Chameleon would mess up the W8 MBR again (and we'll be back to the same problem). What is the correct procedure to boot Windows 8 (MBR, according to Disk Utility) and OS X (GPT, according to DU)?
  25. Hey guys, I've been running OS X on my system for a while now, I was previously running Mavericks, and then I updated it to Yosemite, and I can not get all of my monitors to work on 10.9 or 10.10, I can get at least one every time, if I'm lucky two will work, and the third one just flat out never works. I can't understand why and I've been dealing with this for months and I'm finally posting about it, any ideas? Also, it did this no matter whether I using the web or default driver. I am running two GTX 780s *NOT in SLI*, and I do know what the deal is, any help would be appreciated, On a side note, I use the clover bootloader and I when I use the kext-dev-mode=1 flag it is supposed to register all kexts and boot with them, boot if I try to boot without injected kexts, I have no network connection, otherwise, if I boot with injected kexts it works fine, but I always have the monitor issue and I do not know what the deal with that is. For reference, I'm using an Asus Rampage IV Extreme board, other than these two issues, the OS runs great. Any ideas?
