  2. Toshiba Satellite L755 1j2 Hackintosh Download This file. It contains the zip file with everything you need for the installation. • A Toshiba Satellite L755 1j2– This is necessary to install macOS Sierra for this tutorial • A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. • A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. This is for an clean install. 1.

  3. Buongiorno a tutti, ho un problema che mi è apparso sul mio hackintosh sierra 10.12.4 sul mio Toshiba Z30. Dopo un cambio di ram (upgrade da 8gb a 16gb) durante il boot la retroilluminazione va a 0. - Vedo la schermata del BIOS - Vedo la schermata di Clover, - Vedo il logo delle Apple -> quando la barra di caricamento arriva intorno a metà la retroilluminazione inizia a calare fino ad arrivato a 0 di conseguenza ho una schermata nera (in controluce si vede qualcosa, mentre col monitor esterno il video si vede correttamente). Sapete cosa può essere?
  4. Hey Guys I desperately need help, and before you advice me to search web, I should say in my defense that last 3 days the only things I did were multiple re-installation of OS X with different sets of kext selections and tweaking with commands before system boot(found on web) - nothing worked for me so far. Now about my problem - I have a following setup: --- Tecra A10 Notebook 4GB DDR2 of RAM P8700 C2D Processor 2,53Ghz Nvidia Quadro NVS 150M OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion v. 12С54; Darvin/x86 boot v5.0.132 - Chameleon v2. 2svn r2140 (Installed from iATKOS image) --- Problem is that I can't figure out why my graphic card doesn't want to work properly. Installation is successful, however when system boots, it either panics with a message to restart the pc or black screen is shown, however sound is playing, which indicates that system is not in panic. In case if I enter nv_disable=1 key before the system starts, system successfully launches, with sound support of keyboard and mouse drivers. And it would seem that what else I should be worried about - why am I complaining? Well, it's lags in browser and other graphic applications - that's my concern. I am unable to scroll normally in any browser(be it Safari, Firefox or Google Chrome), and if I click 'Notifications' button on the system bar, right menu with lags and red lines is shown up for 1,5 seconds, after which it disappears. I did some research, and found out that it's VESA mode I am using, when I enter key nv_disable=1 and it causes all of lagging. I can't use system normally with such problem, and I desperately need some OS X version that will work without such problems or an advice how to fix this problem for ML 10.8.2 - my job depends on this. If anyone can help me with some advice - please do. I also should say that the reason I chose the iATKOS image is for it's Chameleon boot - I am not fond of Clover, and it's too complicated with it's tweaking. If you need any screenshots from console during the system boot, I will gladly provide them.
  5. An ISO for my HackBook

    I tried installing "Yosemite" from "Hackintosh Zone" since i can't find any other ISO's around, my machine was the good old Toshiba Satellite L40-17S, i noticed few issues while getting kexts/driver for it versus, on the "Mountain Lion" install, it found my ethernet as soon as i got the ethernet kext installed, and it was able to surf, but then once i introduced the Intel's GPU to the play with my HackBook, it didn't go too well, i got 4 duplicates of that same screen and that was the same thing on the Yosemite, legit, i got the right driver for it, but how i knew it was real? Well, when i installed it, at first restart, it worked fine and was able to find my monitor and the actual resolution, but after few restarts or maybe leaving the PC off for a while affected it. And thanks to some people from my earlier posts, i got the drivers and some post's were about my HP notebook, which of course (Horrible-Product) doesn't go too well with OS X, a year ago, i got it to work, but i didn't have a external drive at the time and i had a usb flash which fitted my "Yosemite", although they weren't mine, they were from this YouTuber:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpL5iGHPk9ZdeU9LYAK5K0g he had those files. He even had the VM images, but at the time they didn't work properly until i messed around with CPU settings, and i don't remember them. But once i got this PC to reassemble, i was thinking, "Can i put Hackintosh on this thing?" until i got Windows 10 on this i found out it was a 32bit PC but, it had a 64bit CPU, and when i checked their site, it shows i was right, it will work! So this is where i am today and i only have from "Mountain Lion" which i was guessing because of the release date of the system and my laptop, to "Yosemite" which is their latest version on their site and you can still find it at:https://www.hackintosh.zone/category/18-hackintosh-iso-hackintosh-distro/ . And if you visit the site you can't find "El Capitan" and, "Sierra" since they might have forgot to update the site or, they are working but its hardly taking to develop. Plus the earlier images from "Yosemite" are from "Niresh", but the "Yosemite" is from them. And i was quite sad that they haven't released anything yet. So does anyone have the ISO for "El Capitan" or "Sierra"
  6. Hello everyone! OK I know this is a relatively ancient system, but here it is: I was having some free time in the summer and thought of giving my old Toshiba Satellite A300 (PSAGCE) a second try in installing Mac OS X El Capitan with Clover. Generally, I think that this is a good hackintosh-candidate laptop, apart from its Mobility Radeon HD 3650 GPU (DevID 0x9591). So, I tried to follow-up guides from bcc9, mucha, slice and vlada on ATI kext patching to enable the internal LVDS display and see what will happen. I started with the two scripts decoding the VGA Bios. My results were the following: Radeon_bios_decode: ATOM BIOS Rom: SubsystemVendorID: 0x1179 SubsystemID: 0xff1c IOBaseAddress: 0x5000 Filename: 28109C.bin BIOS Bootup Message: Tosh_IEC_Potomac_M86_DDR2 M86 GDDR2_16Mx16 128bit 256MB 600e/500m PCI ID: 1002:9591 Connector at index 0 Type [@offset 45056]: VGA (1) Encoder [@offset 45060]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (0x15) i2cid [@offset 45146]: 0x90, OSX senseid: 0x1 Connector at index 1 Type [@offset 45066]: LVDS (7) Encoder [@offset 45070]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_LVTMA (0x1f) i2cid [@offset 45169]: 0x14, OSX senseid: 0x5 Connector at index 2 Type [@offset 45076]: HDMI-A (11) Encoder [@offset 45080]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY (0x1e) i2cid [@offset 45192]: 0x91, OSX senseid: 0x2 Connector at index 3 Type [@offset 45086]: 9 pin DIN (9) Encoder [@offset 45090]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC2 (0x16) Redsock_bios_decode: 28109C.bin : Tosh_IEC_Potomac_M86_DDR2 M86 GDDR2_16Mx16 128bit 256MB 600e/500m Subsystem Vendor ID: 1179 Subsystem ID: ff1c Object Header Structure Size: 266 Connector Object Table Offset: 46 Router Object Table Offset: 0 Encoder Object Table Offset: ce Display Path Table Offset: 10 Connector Object Id [5] which is [VGA] encoder obj id [0x15] which is [iNTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (osx txmit 0x00 enc 0x10?)] linkb: false Connector Object Id [14] which is [LVDS] encoder obj id [0x1f] which is [iNTERNAL_KLDSCP_LVTMA] linkb: false Connector Object Id [12] which is [HDMI_TYPE_A] encoder obj id [0x1e] which is [iNTERNAL_UNIPHY (osx txmit 0x10 [duallink 0x0] enc 0x0)] linkb: false Connector Object Id [15] which is [DIN] encoder obj id [0x16] which is [iNTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC2] linkb: false As you can see, the Bios decode scripts point out this structure: CRTC1>DIG2>UNIPHY_KLDSKP_LVTMA>LVDS (SenseID 05 ???) CRTC2>DAC>DAC A>VGA (SenseID 01) CRTC2>DIG1>UNIPHY_A>HDMI (SenseID 02) CRTC2>DAC>DAC B>S-Video So, I tried to create a custom framebuffer string for each output: VGA 10000000100000000001000000100101 LVDS 02000000400000000901000010010205 HDMI 00080000000200000001000010000302 I injected the LVDS and VGA strings for AMD3800Controller.kext in Clover. This resulted in black screen in LVDS (nothing was showing up in system info as well), but the VGA was successfully detected and enabled. [FIRST WIN! ] I tested it with the single monitor setting in BIOS (in previous tests with Chameleon, the change in this setting gave me different results, I don’t know why, but they were weird - e.g. LVDS was showing up as a second VGA monitor with the same characteristics as the VGA monitor connected when both outputs were enabled in BIOS! Apparently, Clover uses only single monitor setting - even when LVDS+VGA setting is selected in BIOS, when Clover shows up, one monitor is off). What was strange, was the i2cid value of LVDS (0x14). Doing some search for it, I found a thread from 0xdeadbeef pointing that Radeon_Bios_Decode script may return wrong values about SenseID. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/255199-editing-personalities-in-older-ati-framebuffers-iago-friends/ Also, an old thread from YannickD about this laptop on Leopard suggests that this laptop has a LVDS which behaves like a DVI in a way (I didn’t actually understand that to be honest). So, I decided to do some trial and error tests on SenseID and ATY-ControlFlag values of the framebuffer (I was considering Transmitter and Encoder values as well, but on HD3000 these are hardwired, so it wouldn’t make much difference). Also tried to change some settings in Clover (Rename my GPU from OVGA to IGPU in DSDT and play with Load VBIOS and Inject EDID options in Clover). http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/149872-ati-moblity-radeon-hd-3650-on-ideneb-13/ After some (not too many to be honest! ) tests (mainly brute-force attack on framebuffer values and change of options) I found out a setting which successfully worked on LVDS!!! My internal monitor is successfully detected and I can have the basic 2D functions for it (resolution & colour change)! [sECOND WIN! ] What did work was the default SenseID of the framebuffer (11 instead of 05) AND the ATY-ControlFlag for DVI (1402 instead of 4000 - others for DVI might work as well!) PLUS the options in Clover (Rename in IGPU for DSDT, Load VBIOS and Inject EDID, which are usual Clover settings for laptops). When tried both LVDS and VGA, both monitors were correctly detected and working! The only strange thing was that the GPU was detected as an ATI Radeon HD4330M instead of Mobility HD3650. Now the bad things… I can’t enable QE/CI acceleration, even though the DevID 9591 is included by default in ATIRadeonX2000.kext. Apparently, the kext is loaded, but returns zero values. This is the second computer that I cannot enable because of the damn ATIRadeonX2000.kext - YannickD says that after Snow Leopard Apple removed some detection routines with fixed values. Has anyone here found any clues about ATI Acceleration kexts and their values? I tested different controllers as well to see if I can get the acceleration. Results were the same for AMD2400Controller.kext, AMD2600Controller.kext and AMD3800Controller.kext, but on AMD4600Controller.kext the system crashed and rebooted before showing anything. Finally, I tested the HDMI string. The result was that the monitor was successfully detected and its properties were correctly showed up in Mac OS X, but the monitor was showing nothing (black screen). Since HD3650 can drive up to two different outputs, maybe a special switch must be enabled for the output, or might be a transmitter-encoder issue (don’t know - didn’t have the time to search more for it, as I was focused on the internal monitor, but it seems something minor). This was for the Video only - I have not tested the HDMI Audio To sum up The framebuffer working was: VGA (successfully detected and enabled - no QE/CI) 10000000100000000001000000100101 LVDS (successfully detected and enabled - DIFFERENT VALUES FROM SCRIPTS IN BOLD - no QE/CI) 02000000140200000901000010010211 HDMI (successfully detected but showed nothing in monitor - no QE/CI) 00080000000200000001000010000302 S-Video - not tested Load VBIOS, Inject EDID and Rename from OVGA to IGPU in DSDT were essential for the monitors to work. I tested these settings across different versions of Mac OS X as well, and got the same results. I can try them on Sierra as well, but I think results will be the same. Bottomline I think there is a need to do further search about framebuffer string values and their meaning. - IF they do not function for you DO NOT BLINDLY TRUST THEM - ESPECIALLY IF YOU GET BLACK SCREEN!!!!!!!!! Also, it would be very good if someone could tear down the acceleration kexts (especially the ATIRadeonX2000.kext) Anyone??? Please??? Thant’s all folks and sorry for my long thread!
  7. Hello everyone, I have a successfully installed OSX 10.10 Yosemite on my Toshiba Satellite C675-S7308 (To find your exact model number look under your laptop, This guide should work for all C675 models) I have been doing a lot of trial and error with this laptop and I have finally got it working. This guide will teach you how get OS X 10.10 on your Satellite C675, Please note I am NOT responsible for any errors you create or problems you may have. Even though this is a working guide anything can go wrong. Requirements: Empty 8GB or Larger Flash Drive A Toshiba Satellite C675 Basic Hackintosh Skills Time So here is what works, Basically Everything Graphics (Full Q&E) = Working Sound = Working WIFI = Working Ethernet = Working Built in Trackpad and Keyboard = Working USB Ports = Working Disk Drive = Working SD Card Reader = Unknown FN Controls = Working VGA Port = Unknown Battery and Percentage = Working Webcam = Kinda Works, It seems to cut in and out not really FaceTime worthy. Bluetooth = Working So before we begin I recommend if you have Windows installed you Create a System Image which will back up your whole hard drive, Windows, and all your programs and files. You may need to buy an external hard drive depending on the amount of files and programs you have. The reason you may want to do a backup is because this is not a dual boot tutorial, I have tried dual boot but it ends up coming out with boot0 errors and it messes up the installation of OSX and Windows if you would like to attempt to dual boot please do so at your own risk. Alternatively, you could buy another hard drive just for OSX. We will be using the hackintosh zone Yosemite distro for this tutorial, This way if you don't already have a hackintosh or a Mac you can create the bootable USB on your Windows Computer. You can try the tonymacx86 clean install of OSX but I haven't tested it and I don't know what you will get for results. [step 1] - Create Bootable Hackintosh USB So the first thing you want to do is download the Yosemite Zone distro from hackintosh zone's website by going here (FYI make sure to disable adblock or your IP will be blocked for 30 min from accessing the site) Once you open the link don't be fooled by the ads look for the button that looks like this Once you click that button a page like this will open up Download "Yosemite_10.10_DMG.zip" (10.10.1 hasn't been tested, I don't know what the results would be if you used it) Once you click that yet another page will open and you will want to scroll down till you see this The easiest thing to do is to like the hackintosh zone page but you select what way you want to unlock the file. Once the file is unlocked you will be redirected to the last page, Scroll down until you see this again Once again click "Yosemite_10.10_DMG.zip" and it will count down from 15 seconds and the download will begin. Once the zip file is downloaded you will want to open it up, You may want to use a program like 7zip or WinRAR Next, You will want to download a Torrent program, This will download the Full DMG file. You can use programs such as BitTorrent or uTorrent or any other torrent program. Once you have your Torrent program installed, Extract the "Yosemite_10.10_DMG.zip" file with your chosen Unarchive program. Once the extract is finished open "YosemiteDMG.torrent" it will open your torrent program and select all the positive options that appear. This file may take awhile to download depending on your internet speed and how many people are downloading the same file at the same time as you. Once the file is finished downloading you will want to download a program called TransMac we will use this to create the bootable USB. After you install TransMac, plug in your USB Flash Drive and Open TransMac as Administrator. Once you have TransMac Open, you will see something similar to this Select Your Flash Drive in TransMac and right click and select "Restore With Disk Image" and find the Yosemite.dmg file, it's most likely located in your downloads folder unless it saved else were, Once you found it select it then select OK and wait for the image to be created. (This may take awhile, and this will also delete any data you have on your flash drive) Once you see "Restore Complete" your done! You have a bootable OS X installer on your flash drive. Next you want to download this file and put it on your flash drive, These are the kexts we will be using later. Don't unplug the flash drive though we will be using it in step 2. Now that you know how to make a bootable Hackintosh Zone USB lets move on to the real guide. [step 2] Booting Into the USB Installer First of all shutdown your computer, Once its fully shut down turn it back on and SPAM the F12 button until it asks you to select a boot device. Select your USB Installer Flash Drive and press enter. Then you will get a screen with a few options, it will list the partitions you have on your hard drive, You want to select "Yosemite Zone" and press enter It will start booting into the OSX installer, You will want to give it a few minutes it may take awhile. Once its booted up you will get a screen that looks like this It will want a bluetooth keyboard, To bypass this press the spacebar on your keyboard a few times. Once you get past that screen you will get to a screen that looks like this Select your language and press the arrow button. Next you will see this screen Simply press continue and agree to the terms. Next you will get to a screen that looks similar to this, It may be slightly different for you depending on your partitions You will want to first select "Utilities" Then Select "Disk Utility" Once Disk Utility is open, Select your hard drive (It's usually the first disk that shows up) Then click the "Partition" Tab Then Under "Partition Layout" Select "1 Partition" This will destroy all data on the hard drive! Next, you will want to name the new partition, By Default it's untitled. I recommend you name it "Macintosh HD" although it really doesn't matter. Also, make sure the Format is "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" Once you type your desired name for the partition and made sure the format is correct, Click "Apply", Then "Partition" This will begin the partition progress, It shouldn't take too long. Once you see "Partition complete." you can close out of Disk Utility. After you close Disk Utility you will brought back to the "Install OSX" Screen, You will want to select the partition you just made. It will be named whatever you decided to name it, In this case I named mine "Macintosh HD". (Don't click "Yosemite Zone" That is the flash drive connected to your computer.) Once you select your hard drive select the "Customize" button (This is very important!) After you click the "Customize" button a menu will popup, it will say "OS X Yosemite 10.10" click the black arrow to reveal the options. (DO NOT CLICK THE BLUE BOX WITH A - THOUGH IT!) Next, Click the arrow for "Boot-Loader" and Unselect "Chameleon" and click the drop down arrow for "Clover" and select "Clover Standard" Your screen should look like this. Next you will want to move down to "Graphics" Click the drop down arrow under "Graphics" then you should see "Enable Default nVidia Drivers", "IGP Enabler=Yes" and "Backup Graphics Kexts". Select the drop down arrow for "Backup Graphics Kexts" then select "Move nVidia Graphics Extensions", "Move ATI Graphics Extensions". Your screen should look like this. Finally, click the drop down arrow for "Laptop Drivers (Kexts)" and select "Enable Battery Percentage" and also if not enabled by default select "Trackpad, PS/2 Mouse & Keyboard Support" Your screen should look like this. Then click "Accept" then you will be brought back to the "Install OS X Screen" then click "Continue" It will now begin to install OS X 10.10, This may take some time so please be patient! Once the installation is finished you will see this screen, Simply wait for it to restart your computer or click the "Restart" button. (Leave the flash drive in!) Once your computer restarts, You will see a screen like this. Use the arrow key to navigate to your partition then press enter and it will begin to Boot into OS X. Once you press enter it will bring you to the booting screen, It may take a bit of time to boot for the first time and it may also flicker while booting which is completely normal. After it's booted you will see a screen that looks like this, If you made it this far you're doing great! At this point in time your Graphics should already be accelerated and the Welcome screen should be in its native resolution. Press continue and set up your account, I won't show how to do this. It's pretty self explanatory. However though, you won't be able to set up iCloud right away. Once you get to the screen that asks you "How Do You Connect?" simply click "My Computer does not connect to the internet" Reason being is we haven't setup the Wifi and Ethernet Kexts yet. Once you have finished setting up your user account and such, You will get to this screen Simply wait, and once this is finished you will be taken to the Yosemite Desktop! [step 3] Post Installation of Kexts Once you are at the Yosemite Desktop screen, Don't touch anything or unplug your flash drive. You will see this appearing in the corner of the screen. After some time a dialog will pop-up saying "Mac AppStore Fix" you will want to click "Fix It" this is important to make sure you are able to log into iCloud and iMessage and such. Once you click "Fix It" a screenshot will appear and you will want to do what the screenshot says, Go to System Preferences, Network, Location, Select "Unknown", Then click the "-" button. Next close out of System Preferences and the screenshot and wait around 2-5 Min and restart your computer. Once you restart your computer login to your desktop and Move the "Internet Kexts" file from your flash drive to the desktop and extract the folder. Once you have the folder extracted, Open it up and Select "Clover Configurator" and copy it. Next go to Finder, Applications, and Paste it in (or drag it). Now that you have Clover Configurator we will be using this to configure the Wifi Kexts. Open up Clover Configurator from Launch Pad or The Applications Folder. Once it's opened find the name of your hard drive partition and double click "Clover" After you open the files up you will see a few folders, Open the one that says "Kexts", Then "Other". Once you are inside the "Other" Folder, COPY (Don't Drag!) the "AtherosWIFIInjector.kext" and the "IO80211Family.kext" into the "Other" folder from the "Internet Kexts" folder you extracted earlier. Once you do that it will ask you to "Authenticate" simply click "Authenticate" and type your password. Next you can close out of the "Other" folder and Clover Config and open a program called "Kext Wizard" you can find it in the applications folder, launch pad, or by searching it. Once you have Kext Wizard open you will get a screen that looks like this. Navigate to the "Installation" Section, Then drag and drop "AtherosWIFIInjector.kext" and the "IO80211Family.kext" from the "Internet Kexts" folder to Kext Wizard then click "Install" and type your password. This may take a few seconds to a minute to install, Once it finishes it will give a dialog saying "Done" then click OK. After this go back to the "Maintenance" tab and check the following boxes "System/Library/Extensions", "Repair Permissions" and "Rebuild cache" then click "Execute". This will take some time to finish around 5-10 min. Once the task finishes you want to restart your computer once again. After you restart your computer you should now see a Wifi icon! If you do this is a good sign! The next step is to configure the wifi card, Open System Preferences, Network, Then click the "+" button then under "Interface" select "Wi-Fi" and click "Create". Now you again want to click the "+" button then under "Interface" select "Bluetooth DUN" and click "Create". Once you have you have completed these 2 steps, you now want to enable your Wi-Fi. Select "Wi-Fi" and click "Turn Wi-Fi On" then click apply and under "Network Name" Select your network and type your password and your online! After you setup your Wi-Fi, Click Apply at the Bottom and Close out of Network. Next we are going to setup the Ethernet. Open the "Internet Kexts" folder once again and open the file that says "RTGNICv2.0.6For10.7" and go through the setup, It's very self explanatory. If you get an error saying it can't open the file because it's a file from the internet or some security related error go to System Preferences, Security and Privacy, Click the little lock at the bottom corner of the screen, type your password then were it says "Allow apps downloaded from:" select "Anywhere" and click the lock again and close out of the window and open the setup file again. The installation of the kext may take a bit of time but once it finishes restart your computer. After you restart, you can check to see if the installation was successful by going to System Preferences, Network and you should now see "Ethernet" if you do your Ethernet jack is now working! [step 4] Final Tweaks and Touches At this point you now have a fully functional Hackintosh! But there are a few other tweaks I recommend you do, these steps are not required but they may help. So I'm sure you're wondering how to get rid of the nagging Bluetooth Keyboard setup wizard from popping up everytime you turn on your hackintosh well it's a real easy fix. Open System Preferences, Bluetooth, Advanced, and Uncheck "Open Bluetooth Setup Assistant at startup if no keyboard is detected" and uncheck the other 2 if they are checked. Then click OK. Another thing you may be wondering is how to get rid of the hiss in the speakers. Go to System Preferences, VoodooHDA, and Turn "Input Gain" all the way down and the Volume Knob turn to about a 2 o'clock position. (You may need to adjust the volume knob) Also if you want the volume to show up on the menu bar up top go to System Preferences, Sound, and down at the bottom check "Show Volume in Menu Bar". Lastly, to login to iCloud and other services go to System Preferences, Internet Accounts, and select your service. I hope this guide helps, I'm currently testing OS X 10.11 and will make a new Guide if I am successful at it. One last thing NEVER download any mac updates from the App Store it could mess up your hackintosh! You can download program updates however (ex. iTunes, and so on) and if you have any questions or issues leave them down below and I will try to help. If you were successful let me know down below as well! Internet Kexts.zip
  8. Hello everybody, I have a Toshiba Satellite C660 with this hardware: - CPU Intel i5 2410M - Chipset: HM65 - NVIDIA GeForce 315M I've tried to install OS X 10.11 with no luck. I've prepared everything following the guide and using Clover Legacy as bootloader. Whenever I try to boot from USB with "-v" it hangs with an underscore for a while after I select the USB to boot from. After about 1 minute it starts loading stuff but it won't go after that. It keeps displaying something new occasionally but after 10 minutes it hangs on "Waiting for DSMOS...". It seems something related with FakeSMC.kext but it's already on "EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other". I don't know what to do. I hope someone will be wanting to help me
  9. With very little work, a basic Yosemite works on this Toshiba laptop http://www.toshiba.fr/laptops/portege/portege-r30/portege-r30-a-19m/ Some glitches are to be expected, and I still haven't solved them yet. See below. Two major points: * USB 3.0 must be disabled in BIOS for the installation to take place, stuck on "waiting for root device" otherwise * KernelPM patch must be applied, instant reboot otherwise Installation method: * OS X Yosemite 10.10 bootable USB for Intel PCs upgraded via Software Update to 10.10.5 * Must claim USB ownership in Clover * Must check fix USB, fix SATA, KernelPM patch Components: * Intel core i5 4210M * Intel HD 4600 PCIID 8086:0416 * Changed the internal intel WiFi card for a DW1510 * Intel Gbe ethernet controller PCIID 8086:153b What works: * QE/CI through RehabMan's FakePCIID_HD4600_HD4400.kext * WiFi, a DW1510 card costs $5 in eBay, original Intel WiFi card is unsupported * Intel Gbe ethernet controller through AppleIntelE1000e.kext * Sound through VoodooHDA 2.8.8 * SpeedStep through Clover Generate PStates & CStates + SSDT.aml generated via ssdtPRGen.sh script, verified with Intel Power Gadget * Battery status via RehabMan's RehabMan-Battery (give that man many beers please!) What does not work: * Touchpad is working as a basic PS/2 mouse with RehabMan's VoodooPS2Controller, no 2-finger scroll, trackpad not recognized by system preferences. Tried MacPois0n ALPS kext without success. * Suspend to RAM / sleep: when system goes "sleeping", it only turns the screen black, CPU still working, fan still spinning. Tried many options here without success Any help appreciated on those 2. HTH Edit 1 Suspend to RAM now "kind of" works: had to remove GenericUSBXHCI.kext and activate USB / AddClockID in order not for instant-resume after sleep. Issues remaining with the sleep function, it takes ages to happen, even with hibernatemode and autopoweroff set to 0 (I checked, no more image file is created). S3 mode works only when it's manually triggered, sleep triggered from inactivity has the laptop reboot. Edit 2 About the trackpad, simple analysis: the touchpad is an ALPS using protocol v7, which has not been implemented in any VoodooPS2Controller ALPS forks (notably bpedman nor DrHurt). This could be done by merging Linux's alps.c/h. Not a hard task, but tedious one.
  10. Hi all, I am using the DSDT supplied in another thread near the top of this section. Booting with Chameleon and GraphicsEnabler=Yes (and PciRoot=0) you get perfect video, unfortunately there is a laundry list of annoying problems, some (or all) of which could be solved by using Clover. I installed Clover to test (MBR install), and booted in verbose mode... It gets all the way to the point where NVIDIA graphics usually kick in, but it just sits there like a dummy. There are serious issues with Chameleon bootloader, including no button start after shutdown (???). I will try some different things tonight from a Clover USB stick... I think the NVIDIA stuff is injected via the DSDT... Don't know why the NVIDIA injection is different in Chameleon than Clover? Any help most appreciated. I can supply all files as necessary. Cheers. NOTE: It is an MBR install (from necessity), so an MBR Clover install is a must-have.

  15. UPDATE: Read my second post as I figured this out, but will leave this post here in case others are searching the same issues later... Hey guys and Gals, Firstly, thanks for all your insight, time and hard work. Im new here as a member, but have been reading for about a year off and on. I asked this question in another post, but it is an older thread that mostly deals with Metal Installs as opposed to Virtual VMWare etc. I am hoping someone can give me a definitive YES?NO can/can't be done answer or even better, a solution. So, here is my question Now, weird issue. I have Host Toshiba Ultrabook U840W 21:9 1792 x 768 resolution (yes, thats correct res) running Windows 8.1 pro x64, Dual Core, 6gb Ram (host) VMWare WS 11+Tools and Un-locker 2.0.4 (should be titled enabler I think, the name suggests hacked when really, it just enables VMWare to load OSX into preset menu) I have two guest VM's; Mavericks 10.9.5 and Yosemite 10.10 PROBLEM -Yosemite OOB VMDK install worked great, full screen resolution at 1792 x 768 with no tinkering required at all. Slow and unreliable when updated security patches are installed. Beamoff Tool solves most of the lag and speed issues. (BUT NO other available options available in display options-weird), -Mavericks 10.9 VMDK install, Un-locker 2.0.4, VM Tools gets maximum 1366 x 768 as a pre-installed option in Display prefs. So, I love Yosemite's look and feel, BUT the mavericks install leaves Yosemite wanting; In speed, Video, Ram Usage etc. The Mavericks install is fantastically fast, stable and only has this one annoying screen limitation issue. Hence, until I get a faster Laptop, Mavericks will be my choice of VM [ for now ] ATTEMPTED FIXES: -SwitchResX: Continual "Not Installed' error and 'Need Reboot' etc that everyone gets attempting to create custom display settings. -Contacted Stephane at SwitchResX (Basically told the issue is not with SwitchResX, but rather my Operating System, despite making numerous mistakes about what order I was running the VM environment in. I.E kept stating that Mac OS X as a host is not supported by VMWare and other such silly statements. [ Reminder: I'm on Windows host anyway and they do support VMWare in mac. I.E Fusion ] -I have read NOTEBOOK Forum and relevant guides (there are non on Toshiba u840W though)as well as a postings over at TonyMacX regarding creating Plist EDID fixes in PListPro and Xcode etc. -Uninstall_Re-install of all softwares -Third Party SVGA Driver (Not recommended unless from a very trusted source as many online versions crashed a number of my installs, Thanks goodness for VM software!) I used this guide to confirm EDID on Yosemite/Mavericks and BOTH VM's use the same Plist details as listed below. They show up as the generic: DisplayProductID" = 1815 DisplayVendorID" = 1970170734 IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/display@F/VMwareGfx/VMwareFramebuffer/display0/AppleDisplay-756e6b6e-717 So my confusion is this, why does Resolution in Yosemite work perfectly at 1792 x 768 OOB, with the same VMWare+Tools+Unlocker preferences and settings, yet Mavericks 10.9 is stuck at 1366 x 768 despite Plist being the same in both VM Op's? I think I have a case of working on something too long, and forgetting what i have tried and not tried etc. Maybe someone has a simple solution for this, but i know that with my 21:9 1792 x 768 resolution, its a challenge, BUT Yosemite knew straight away to use the Host settings? Thanks ahead of time people, and just so you know, I am a helper too and contribute to posts (Toshiba) etc, so i will pay it forward. Cheers from Australia.... Shane

Creo que con esas especificaciones tendria que tener de sobra.
  20. I am attempting to install Yosemite 10.10.1 onto my laptop that has a GPT and uses UEFI. The computer specs: Notebook Toshiba Satellite S855-S5378 Chipset : Mobile HM76 Express Intel® Core i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz BIOS Insyde Corp. version 6.70 2x4GB SODIMM DDR3 Synchronous 1600 MHz (0.6 ns) Intel® HD 4000 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller Hard Disk : TOSHIBA MQ01ABD0 (750GB) DVD-Rom Drive : HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GT51N Toshiba Internal LCD AR8161 Gigabit Ethernet Realtek RTL8723AE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller This laptop has Windows 8 and Ubuntu Linux installed, both using UEFI boot. The trouble I'm having is that this laptop will boot into the USB bootloaders, but will quickly reboot after selecting the USB device to boot into---without displaying any information in verbose mode. This is very similar, I believe, to the early reboot problem that Haswells experience due to the power management shift into the kernel. I have used many methods to create the USB Installer, all performed from a VM hosted by a Windows 7 platform: I started off by using Clover bootloader and configuring the config.plist according to skylineosx. After a couple "early reboots", I attempted to rule out some causes: Maybe the culprit is the graphics card/settings or the kernel...?To rule out my graphics card/settings being the culprit I downloaded a custom config.plist specially tailored to my Intel HD 4000 and placed it into "/EFI/Clover/" but it still rebooted. After many USB disk wipes and different configurations and re-installations with Clover, trying to figure out the graphics side of things, I started to investigate the kernel: I do not have a kernel on my USB drive after installing Clover and copying "OS X Base System" to it. I have looked in the root and in "/System/Library/Kernels" (and FYI, I do not have that "Kernels" folder either). I have seen in a lot of guides say to use pacifist to extract the kernel from “OS X Install ESD/Packages/BaseSystemBinaries.pkg" or "OS X Base System" and copy it to "/System/Library/Kernels/" (one of the sources is from skylineosx.com); but when I look in "BaseSystemBinaries.pkg", the file nor even the folder "Kernels" is there. Note: I have enabled the ability to see hidden files/folders. However, when I came across another guide (source) that instructed me to extract the kernel from "OS X Installed ESD/Packages/Essentials.pkg/System/Library/Kernels/”, I found a "kernel". I guess I'll use that one. (Right?) In a desperate attempt for a solution, I go in search for another guide to follow---I found pokenguyen's guide.I followed it to the "T," despite my doubts about it not addressing any issues about the kernel. As expected, it rebooted before any lines of code passed on my screen. After being introduced to the Hackintosh Vietnam Tool by pokenguyen's guide, I then solely used version 1.8.1 of the tool to install clover as well as a config.plist, but the same automatic, quick rebooting occurs. As a last resort, I tried the ##### method---knowing that it is intended for a MBR table---and my UEFI BIOS did not even recognize the boot device, and so it skipped onto GRUB 2. I guess this was to be expected. Recently, I discovered that Haswell computers have a problem with power management, and a recurring problem seems to be the same as mine: a (what I understand to be a "KP") early-reboot caused by the kernel attempting to write to a locked MSR 0xE2(source 1, source 2). In accordance with Rehabman's instruction, I patched the kernel from the terminal and inserted the kernel back to my USB's "/System/Library/Kernels/" folder. Through reading many guides, I have found that there is no consensus about where the kernel should be. Some say at the root of the USB device; others say in "/System/Library/Kernels/" folder. Because of this, and my thinking that maybe the bootloader is simply not loading a kernel, I take the following action: I made copies of this patched kernel in two different locations: (1) at the root of the USB, and, (2) in "/System/Library/Kernels/". In each location there are two patched kernels. One is named "kernel" and the other "mach_kernel" as I have seen guides use both names, so I am unsure of which one to use. My config.plist references to "mach_kernel" and not just "kernel". Is this correct behavior for the config.plist to refer to the kernel as "mach_kernel"? Now, to close this up- I believe that it is the kernel that is causing this rebooting issue when I try to boot from the USB because of either two reasons: (1) the kernel does not exist (or in teh wrong location) and therefore cannot boot from it, or, (2) the kernel is trying to access a protected portion--power management-- and it panics very early on, resulting in a reboot (cf. Rehabman's post). Moreover, I just read that the early-reboot may be caused by the Mac OS X finding my DSDT file as "faulty." Do I need to patch my DSDT (Something I have stayed away from)? Are my reasonings probable, considering that I do not have a Haswell processor but an Ivy Bridge? What are some practical troubleshooting that you may refer me to? I have searched and searched and searched through countless forums and guides, and have eventually come to ask this question here. I was hesistant in posting a call for help, as I wish not to bother anyone, but this is a hobby for all of us and sometimes we need to throw in the towel and ask for help. I wish you all a very good day, and hope that this incites some helpful discussion.
  21. osx in toshiba nb100/250

    Hello, I'm new in the forum but i was looking it for years. I installed some versions on hackintosh in diferent computers and it goes great!

    I am trying to follow RehabMan's guide on patching the DSDT for Haswell Laptops. So far, I have a vanilla install rite now; I have not installed any fixes with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] yet. I tried to use MaciASL but it said I had 22 errors and I could not figure out how to fix them. So, what I did was get DSDT Editor and had it fix the errors for me. It managed to fix 18 errors leaving only 4 left to be fixed so I can proceed to patch my DSDT with RehabMan's guide. Here is a link to the 4 remaining errors I have: http://imgur.com/cZsDLqA Any help would be much appreciated!
  24. Toshiba Satellite E55-A5114

    I've made a hackintosh before with a netbook years ago, but I'm trying to get this new Toshiba ultrabook to run OSX. Which version would actually run on it? I've tried booting from the 10.8 disc, but it freezes on the apple logo screen and does nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated so I can get rid of Windows 8.1!
  25. Version 0.1


    Just My Extra Folder for Mavericks, use in Installer and Installed. I DON'T use KernelCache, so the Installer NEEDS to have S/L/E!! Use latest Chameleon You will need to Use MBR Install as SecureCore Tiano DON'T like GPT. Use included VoodooHDA for sound ( S/L/E or may work in E/E ) Wifi Not Working, REPLACE onboard Wifi OR use USB Wifi. Use Included Realtek for Lan and Install first for en0.
