  1. HAH! SORY I HAVE POSTED AS ASUS, IT'S GIGABYTE. Hi guys! Thanks for reading my topic. First, We have: - Gigabyte Z87-HD3 - Intel Core i5 4570 3,2Ghz - 32GB G.Skrill 2133Mhz ( For hackintosh start, only 8GB) - GT210 (is not connected now, we use internal HD4600 for install) So, we have tryed to start up 10.9 DP3 with my friend 7ender about 14H, and we have just little bit of progression. We use Chimera 2.1.2 (latest update), DSDT and FakeCMS. So, problem is, that if we boot hackintosh normal without DSDT, we stuck at bluetooth stage Normal start with DSDT Hackintosh can boot with -X. This pack include: - Extra folder what we use in chimera - Photos from bios ( if we have some wrong settings?) I hope someone can help us with this problem. Best. Regards Yuras
  2. I've been running a hackintosh for the last year which works well. However I now need to have intel virtualisation working with it due to developing with docker (and oracle's virtual box). Even though intel virtualisation is enabled in the bios (and also works in windows on the same machine - I use dual ssd one for windows one for OS X), it isn't working in OS X yosemite and I get virtual box reporting that I don't have an x86 compatible cpu but an i686 one - known to show than intel virtualisation isn't enabled). I know intel virtualisation is enabled by default on normal macs but has anyone got this to work with a hackintosh and how? Is there a way to confirm independently of virtual box that it is/isn't enabled? Not sure if clover can override the bios settings and disable it somehow? thanks, Specs intel i5 - 4570 Board: gigabyte Z87M-D3H OS : Yosemite 10.10.4 clover:3259 (Graphics 780ti)

  6. Hey guys. So today, I checked out Niresh's Mavericks (w/ AMD support) and followed the "How to install OS X Mavericks on your PC with Niresh" and encountered an error literally just before the installation completed. Here are some screenshots taken from my S4: My specs are: CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 (1090T BE) (Which Niresh confirmed that AMD Phenom II X6 1090T is fully compatible with his Mavericks distro) Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 RAM: 4GB I installed the Niresh Mavericks Installer (.dmg) on a virtual machine of OS X Mountain Lion's Disk Utility (not on Windows'). All of that worked fine. I was able to boot into the installer on my 32GB SanDisk USB stick and was installing Mavericks on a portable USB 3.0 (Western Digital Passport) hard disk. Please help!
  7. Installazione eseguita con successo (http://www.insanelym...ento-chameleon/) ora ci sono alcune cose da ritoccare. 1- Il sistema si avvia esclusivamente da bootloader su usb anche se l'ho installato nel disco di avvio di OSX 2- Da informazioni del mac leggo che la HD4000 non viene riconosciuta ma c'è scritto solamente GPU generico con 64MB di memoria dedicata e non viene rilevato nessun kext installato per la periferica 3- L'nVidia credo sia riconosciuta ma senza memoria dedicata (ed ho 2GB) 4- Non funziona il multitouch 5- Risolvere problema wifi (so che al momento non c'è un kext per l'AR9485) 6- Card reader 7- Batteria con poca durata (da icona su finder massimo 1h45 di autonomia col 100%) 8- Tasti rapidi su tastiera (È possibile attivarli? Retroilluminazione?) 9- Dual boot, come? Grazie a tutti in anticipo! Aspetto risposte!

    ASUS X201E - come fare?

    Ciao a tutti, sono un vecchio hackintosher che per un lungo periodo ha abbandonato le pratiche di hackintosh ma mi vorrei nuovamente cimentare dato che ho acquistato un notebook economico ma interessante, soprattutto sotto il profilo osx. Il modello è esattamente questo: http://www.asus.it/Notebooks/Versatile_Performance/X201E/#specifications Io ho processore Celeron 847 @ 1.10ghz 2gb DDR3 1333mhz Hard disk 500gb LAN Atheros AR8162 WLAN Atheros AR9485 VGA Intel Graphic HD4000 LCD 11,6" @ 1366x768 16:9 Non ho altre notiize, ma più tardi vi farò la lista HW ID delle periferiche se serve. Potete darmi una mano a capire come installare OSX, in qualunque versione dalla Snow in poi qui sopra? Partendo dal presupposto che non ho nè un mac nè un hack però..... Grazie a tutti dell'aiuto.
  11. Hello all. I am new to these forums and Hackintoshes in general. I successfully installed OS X Snow Leopard using an official Snow Leopard install DVD I own and some other booting tools. I suppose I don't have an official Hackintosh in the sense that I run OS X from as a guest machine. If it helps, I use Oracle's VirtualBox. The VM runs perfectly fine. I used a combined update to update from the first version of Snow Leopard (available on the install disk) to the last/latest version of Snow Leopard. So, with that being said, is it possible to update the operating system while my guest is running without having to change things around? I'd ideally like to be running OS X Yosemite. The Yosemite OS update is available from the App Store for free right now, but I'm a little hesitant to run it at the moment. I was reading somewhere that you should only update your Hackintosh with combined updates from Apple. Any truth to this? I sincerely apologize for my ignorance. As you can tell, I'm still learning. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    HP DV6 2150us install help

    Hello- So I have been trying dilligently for days to get OSX Yosemite installed on my HP Pavillion dv6 2150us laptop. I have tried all kinds of different flags and bios settings and in verbose i get all the way to a point where that screen looks like it changes to a GUI but it is garbled lines that i cant make anything of. I am looking for pretty much a walkthrough on how to get this working. I am using a legitimate copy of OSX Yosemite from my wifes MacBook Air but I would like to install El Capitan (which I can get from her MacBook when I update it). What would be the best bootloader for my install? Kexts? really any and all help would be appreciated. Attached are hardware and system info screenshots. Thank you all so much in advance. Its my first post but I have been lurking the forums for weeks getting tons of information from other's posts but I just haven't been able to get it right yet.
  13. I've installed Mac Os X 10.9.1 Mavericks on my Intel Haswell NUC Core i5 (D54250WYK), which has mini Display port output. I connected Nuc with 27-inch Korean monitor (Crossover 2763amg) with mini Display port - Display port cable to get 2560x1440 resolution. Installation was working fine without any issue, then i restarted my machine to load Mavericks and got login screen. After i type my user account password, os x shutd down immediately in 1-2 seconds. If i boot with "-v -x" flags (verbose, save mode), then everything goes fine, but there is poor graphics acceleration. I've also noticed if i connect my Nuc to old 17-inch LG monitor through HDMI cable (mini HDMI - HDMI), then there is no a such issue, but resolution is 1080p. Another strange thing, if i change Org.chameleon.Boot.plist file located in /Extra folder of my SSD for lower resolution (from 2560x1440 -> 2048x1152) then i have os x shuts down after login screen not every time - sometimes it occured, sometimes not. The same behaviour if i connect my Nuc with passive mini DP - DVI adapter + DVI cable (the resolution in this case is 1920x1200): sometimes shuts down after login screen occured, sometimes - not. Also, i've tried Windows 7x64 installing, and everything worked without below problem in 2560x1440. I've heard about Lapic Kernel patching for Haswell CPU's, but i haven't tried it yet. Where could be the cause of this behaviour in Max OS X? Any suggestions? Here is my suggestion: Try another mini DP - DP cable. Try MINI DP - DUAL LINK DVI adapters like: Monoprice Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt Plus USB To Dual-Link DVI Adaptor Kanex iAdapt C30 MDPC30 Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter StarTech.com mdp 2 dvi Mini DisplayPort to DVI Dual-Link Apple mini Display port to Dual Link DVI adapter Try External usb3.0 video capture card

  15. Hello! I have been attempting to install Mountain Lion on my PC which is currently running Windows 10. Here are my current specs. CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 270 GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon R7 240 (4GB DDR3) RAM: 8GB Motherboard: N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX (Alvorix) However, I am... not doing too well with the installation. Upon my first attempt, I was successful at getting the PC to boot into the OS X boot screen (Apple Logo with loading spinner), but it just sat there spinning and spinning, not doing anything more. So I rebooted and entered in some boot flags. I tried the following combinations: 1) amd -v -x PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 2) amd -v PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 3 )amd -v 4) amd Now, the results were the following: 1) The entire process stopped at "System uptime in nanoseconds = 0" 2) The process froze about a minute into the loading process with the error, "BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory." 3) Same result as #2 4) I can load into the Apple loading screen, but it sits forever and never actually loads the installation setup. So... My question is this: My PC specs can run Mountain Lion, correct? If not, then I apologize for wasting your time. Which versions of OS X can my PC run with the mentioned specs? How would I go about running this on my hardware? I am completely new to this process, so I apologize for my inexperience. But I thank you all for your help!
  16. Hi, I am trying to install OS X Mavericks / Yosemite on my PC which has following specifications : - AMD FX 8150 - Asus M5A88-M - ATI Raedon 4250 - 4 GB RAM I have downloaded Niresh's OS X Mavericks dmg and using win32 disk imager have created a bootable usb. When I run the command "amdfx -v" sometimes it gets stuck on "PCI Configuration Begin" part and sometimes on "SMC Initialized successfully". Also, tried using different flags like: - npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000 - PCIRootUID = 0 or 1 - GraphicsEnabler = Yes / No - UsbBusFix = Yes - EHCIacquire = Yes Thanks in advance!

    Wacom MobileStudio Pro

    Hi, the new Wacom MobileStudio Pro has just been release in two flavors (13.3 and 15.6"). Would love to know if the (close to) 16" model can run MacOS ? Has someone tried it yet or planning to try ? Is there a way to know if it will work without buying and trying ? Wonder if anyone has managed to make OS X work well with Nvidia mobile Quadro. It seems it may be possible http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/273621-guide-os-x-lion-on-thinkpad-w520/ Also would be interesting to assemble an installing guide like there is one for the Cintiq Companion 2.

    Stuck on Login Screen

    So, i'm installing Yosemite via Clover bootloader, and after installing, i can into desktop after setup assistant, after reboot it, i got stuck on login after entering correct password. is there any step to resolve it? thanks
  20. Hi, last week I've been working with my AMD PC to install Hackintosh Yosemite (I tried to install Mavericks and I have the same problem) and all it's ok but the graphics are so bad and the resolution too (I can't change it or I don't know how). How can I fix the graphics problem? I haven't a graphics card but I have an APU with integrated graphics. This is my hardware : AMD A8-7600 APU Processor with Radeon R7 Graphics (integrated 4 Cores CPU + 6 Cores GPU) MSI Motherboard A78M-E35 2x 4Gb Crucial RAM DDR3 1600 Mhz No graphics card It's impossible to play any game... Thank you so much.
  21. Disclaimer: This is my app, not sure about the rules on promotional threads on InsanelyMac. I don't normally post threads about my own stuff, but I thought this would be pretty useful to the Hackintosh community. InsanelyMac & TonyMacx86 have helped me so much. So I went from W7 (which had a multitude of great apps for dealing with more than one monitor like Ultramon) to an OS X Lion Hackintosh, which I loved infinitely more but apparently didn't work too well out of the box with a multiple monitor setup. A bit about my setup for anyone who cares: Mobo: ASUS P6T CPU: i7 920 GPU: GTX 470 SLI (ugh, huge headache not knowing how to do EFI strings) RAM: 6GB OCZ Gold Monitors: 2x 24" Samsung SyncMasters. =========================== Here's my attempt at dealing with the multiple monitor problem: Multimon. (<- Click to view in App Store) Features: • Multiple Menu Bars ⁃ Should work for any number of monitors, the max I was able to test up to was 3 though. (Hackintoshers with 9 monitor setups, please let me know ). • Advanced Window Management ⁃ You're more productive with another monitor but nobody wants to drag windows left and right. Easily send a window to any of your monitors via a drop down or a hotkey. Maximize or minimize too! • Automatic Window Resizing ⁃ A lot of us hackintoshers don't have the luxury of matching dual cinema displays . This'll automatically resize windows that are too large onto smaller monitors. • Hotkeys ⁃ Pretty customizable hotkeys for a bunch of the features listed above as well as quickly hiding all menu bars, etc. So yup, that's it. You can tweet me for support / feedback at @delveapps. Chat with me about hackintosh / apps / design / tech / anything at @aaronykng . Hope you guys find it useful. Look forward to hearing what you guys think.
  22. If you need to get the VMWare Tools for OS X as guest OS running on, say, Windows 7 - you can download the "darwin.iso" from the software update site directly... http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/5.0.1/825449/packages/'>http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/5.0.1/825449/packages/ Grab the com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.zip.tar file. You may want to browse back up to the http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/ level to make sure you've grabbed the latest version of the tools. Once you have the "zip.tar" file (it's only about 2Mb), you can extract it and browse into the archive to find the ISO. Mount the ISO inside OSX and run the installer.
  23. Acer Aspire M5-583P-XXXX using Clover This guide will remain a work in progress as long as updates are pushed out and kinks are ironed out. If you have the same laptop, feel free to share your input if something could be improved on. I will update this guide as best as I can for future updates, fixes, etc. Working: • Graphics - Intel HD 4400 via DSDT patch, FakePCIID method, and Clover injection • Touchscreen • Display Brightness - via RehabMan's SSDT patch and ACPIBacklight method • Built-in Camera • Airport • Sound - HDMI Audio, headphone, microphone, and function keys (vol +/vol -) are functional • HDMI port • Trackpad • Sleep/Wake up • Battery • All USB ports including the USB3 port in the back Let's get started! Things you will need before getting started include: • 8GB+ USB flash drive For the main installation of Clover and Yosemite • * Atheros AR5B95 WiFi card (no built-in bluetooth) The installed Intel WiFi + Bluetooth card will NOT work on OS X • A working installation of OS X (be it an actual Mac or Hackintosh) To set up all necessary files * I chose to install the Atheros AR5B95 WiFi card because I had a spare laptop that was not being used. I swapped the cards out based off of convenience. You can choose any Yosemite compatible WiFi card from this guide here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/104850-guide-airport-pcie-half-mini-v2.html If you choose my route and you go with the Atheros AR5B95, the process of installing is as easy as plug n’ play. There’s no unlocking the BIOS or any of that. If you choose to go another route and choose a different WiFi card, please post your results and directions here. I will try to make this the one stop solution for this laptop. Preparing the OS X Yosemite USB Installer 1. You will need to download the Yosemite image from the App Store For this installation, we will be using the 10.10.4 version of Yosemite. 2. Once the Yosemite image has downloaded, it will appear in your Applications folder. Verify to make sure it’s there and the size (5.68 GB) is correct. 3. Launch Disk Utility and select your flash drive (make sure you’re selecting the overall drive, not a selected partition). • Go to the Partition tab • In the ‘Partition Layout:’ section, click ‘Current’ and select 2 Partitions • Still in the ‘Partition Layout’ section, select partition ‘UNTITLED 1’ • Moving to the right side, in the ‘Partition Information’ section, type CLOVER for the name • For the format, leave as MS-DOS (FAT) • For the size, enter 0.3 • Click the ‘Options…’ button and select GUID Partition Table • In the ‘Partition Layout:’ section, now select the ‘UNTITLED 2’ partition • Back to the right side, in the ‘Partition Information’ section, type YOSEMITE for the name • For the format, select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) • For the size, leave as is (values will be different here because of different flash drive sizes) • Click the ‘Options…’ button and select GUID Partition Table • Click the ‘Apply’ button to begin formatting You will see the process begin and your newly formatted partitions will be mounted automatically. • You can now close Disk Utility 4. Now it's time to download and run my OS X USB FD Configurator application. Download my OS X USB FD Configurator application here: https://github.com/delioroman/OS-X-Yosemite-on-Acer-Aspire-M5-583P-XXXX-using-Clover Screenshots: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- IMPORTANT: In order for OS X USB FD Configurator to work properly, it must be placed in your user directory (~). An easy way to locate this folder is to: • Select Finder in the Dock • On the top menu bar click ‘Go’ • Then click ‘Go to Folder…’ Type in: ~ • Press Enter You will see a new window pop up with folders such as ‘Documents’, ‘Downloads’, and ‘Music’. You’re in the right folder. Extract the .zip file to that location alongside all of those folders. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I created OS X USB FD Configurator to automate the process for you. It will: • Configure the Clover EFI boot loader onto the CLOVER partition All patched files will be automatically installed onto the partition as well. • Install the ‘Install OS X Yosemite’ image onto the YOSEMITE partition. Follow the directions given to you by OS X USB FD Configurator. After my application is done, you will have a ready to be booted OS X Yosemite Installer. I wrote this application specifically for the Acer Aspire M5-583P-XXXX. Don’t use this for any other laptop, it may not boot properly. Installing OS X Yosemite Now it’s time to begin the installation process! Now that our USB drive is ready to be booted, we have to set some things up in the BIOS. 1. Boot the laptop and tap F2 until you are presented with the BIOS screen. • In the ‘Main’ tab, make sure ‘F12 Boot Menu’ is Enabled and ‘SATA Mode’ is set to AHCI Mode. • In the ‘Boot’ tab, make sure ‘Secure Boot:’ is set to Disabled. This will allow Clover to launch successfully. • Now, go to the ‘Exit’ tab and select Exit Saving Changes. The laptop will now reboot. 2. When the laptop reboots, be sure to tap on the F12 button until you’re presented with the ‘Boot Manager’ screen. Select the flash drive in which you've created. 3. When you select the USB drive, you will be presented with Clover. Select the partition ‘YOSEMITE’ and press Enter to begin the boot process! Be patient during the boot process. It may seem like it got stuck, but don’t worry, you will soon be presented with the OS X installer screen. When you are greeted with the Welcome screen of OS X, be sure to select your preferred language to use during the installation process. By the way, your touchscreen should be working! Give it a test run. 4. Now you’ll be presented with the OS X logo stating “To set up installation of OS X, click Continue” We’re not going to click Continue just yet. Go to ‘Utilities’ at the top and select Disk Utility. 5. Select your laptops internal hard drive (NOT the usb drive). • Select the Partition tab. • Make sure 1 Partition is selected • Name your drive whatever you wish (ex: Macintosh HD is the default name for all Mac primary partitions). • Make sure the Format is set to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) • Click the ‘Options…’ button and select GUID Partition Table and click ‘OK’. • Click the ‘Apply’ button to begin the format process. • Once formatting is complete, you can now close Disk Utility. 6. Now, we can press the ‘Continue’ button. From here to the end of installation it should be self explanatory for you. Follow the directions and be sure to select your newly formatted hard drive as your installation destination. Installation will take a while so go ahead and grab a bite to eat! Booting Yosemite for the very first time 1. Once installation is complete you will be prompted to restart your computer. Restart and tap the F12 button upon reboot. Select the USB flash drive and you will be prompted with Clover, once again. This time, you will see a new addition which is your new installation of Yosemite. Select that drive and press enter. You will now boot Yosemite from your hard drive for the first time! 2. Once your OS X has fully booted, follow the remaining directions to set up your new ‘Mac’. After you have finished, you will then be presented with the Yosemite desktop. I’m sure you’re pretty excited at this point. We only have a couple more things to do to finalize our installation. Post Installation 1. Now it's time to format our EFI partition. Go to: Applications/Utilities/Terminal (a Spotlight search will work too) Type in: diskutil This will list ALL drives and partitions recognized by OS X. In here we will be looking for our ‘EFI’ partition. It will be located under the ‘IDENTIFIER’ section. Be absolutely sure you select the correct partition. * For example, let's say EFI was disk0s2 Now copy/paste or type in the following in Terminal: sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/rdisk0s2 Press Enter and wait till Terminal completes. 2. It's now time to run my OS X Post Installation Configurator package to finalize the installation. Download my OS X Post Installation Configurator package here: https://github.com/delioroman/OS-X-Yosemite-on-Acer-Aspire-M5-583P-XXXX-using-Clover My package installer installs the following: • patched EFI folder • Clover Configurator • Kext Utility My post installer will install ALL necessary files to get Graphics, Network, Sound, etc, working. DSDT and SSDT patches will also be installed as well. Reconfiguring the BIOS The very last step is to set the BIOS back up. I don't believe this step is absolutely necessary. I did it just for piece of mind. If your laptop boots the main HD with Clover, with no problems, then you're good to go. If you still wish to continue, you're more than welcome. In this step we will point BIOS to the BOOTX64.efi file. This will add Clover as a trusted executable. Reboot the laptop and tap F2 Go to the 'Security' tab Select 'Set Supervisor Password' and set a password you will not forget. Keep it simple. A 4-digit password will be more than enough. Now select 'Select a UEFI file as trusted for executing' and press Enter Navigate to the BOOTX64.efi file in the EFI partition Go to the 'Exit' tab and select Exit Saving Changes Congrats! You are done!

  25. What is Wineskin? Wineskin is a tool used to make ports of Windows software to Mac OS X. The ports are in the form of normal Mac application bundle wrappers. It works like a wrapper around the Windows software, and you can share just the wrappers if you choose. Best of all, its free! Download If you are using Mac OS X and want to run Windows applications, the most popular option is to install Windows OS using Bootcamp, or run Windows in a virtual machine. Linux users will know that you can use Wine to install and run Windows applications natively. The good news is that Mac users can run Wine to install Windows applications as well. Wineskin is a Wine-tool ported over to the Mac platform. Check out how you can run Windows applications on Mac OS X. Wineskin is simply an implementation of Wine at its core. For those who are not sure what Wine (an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is, it is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, including Linux and Mac OS X. Installation The installation is pretty straight-forward. 1. Download Wineskin from website. The latest version as of this post is 2.5.12. But now the 2.6.0 is available. 2. Extract the file and move the Wineskin app to your Applications folder. Open it. On the first run, there won’t be any engine showing up in the list. Click the “+” button to download and install the latest engine. The engine is required to make the Windows applications work. Once the engine is installed, you are ready to install Windows applications. Installing Windows applications Before you start, make sure you have the executable file of the desired Windows application with you. Note that Wineskin doesn’t support all the Windows applications out there. Check out Wine’s AppDB to see if the application you want is supported. 1. Click the “Create New Blank Wrapper” button and enter a name for this wrapper. In this example, we will be installing Peazip on Mac. While creating the wrapper, it will prompt you to install mono package for running .Net applications and Gecko package for running HTML-based apps. 2. Once the wrapper is created, open it in Finder; right click and select “Show Package Content.” You should see two folders: “Contents” and “drive_c” and a Wineskin app. Run the Wineskin app. 3. Select “Choose Setup executable” and select the executable file of the Windows application. The installation will proceed just like it does in Windows. Running Windows applications Run the Wineskin app (from the Wrapper folder) again. This time, click “Advanced.” Browse and select the installed application and click “Test Run.” This will run the Windows application. This is what the application will look like: Once you are happy with the test run, the next time you can just double click the Wrapper app to open this application. That’s it. Source: Make Tech Easier
