  1. Hello everyone, I just installed highsierra on my notebook with help by Maldon and Mirone. I have almost everything working, missing only a few details: - I think I have a lot of kexts i do not use - HDMI Audio not working - the screen turns black after sleep - boot takes more then a minute can anybody help me? folder with SendMe, Clover and IOREG: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xPTVrHVL4Z_Dh3oeDMpQ7EQKHsigBWC2?usp=sharing hardware: i5-7200, hd620, 940mx, 8gb ram, 1TB
  2. Hello, After trying SO MANY times without success, I decided to seek help from my fellow OSX86 Community. I have an Acer Aspire E1-570G Laptop with these specs: - Intel Core i3-3217U @ 1,8GHz - HM77 - 8GB RAM DDR3L 1600MHz (Dual Channel) - Intel HD Graphics 4000 (ID=0166) and nVidia GeForce GT740M - 64-Bit Edition - 15,6" with 1366x768 resolution - Clover 3192 Bootloader. I've been trying to get OS X working but I keep running into various problems: - The common one is that Intel HD 4000 won't work, it's detected but 4MB VRAM. - The computer sometimes auto-reboot after reaching a certain level of boot process as shown here (for reference only) . That problem mostly happen when I check "Inject Intel" in clover GUI before booting.- It stuck if I use Chameleon with IGPEnabler=Yes and GraphicsEnabler=No - I also get "Still waiting for root device error sometimes, I solved this by using Generic USB 3.0 kext. What I tried: - Using different versions of OS X: 10.8.2 Retail DVD (bought it long time back), 10.9.5 downloaded from App Store and 10.10.2 - 10.10.3 all from App Store. - Using different versions of Clover, Chimera and Chameleon like Clover 2593, 3113, 3192 and latest; many versions of Chameleon including patched ones (2.1svn r1999 - r2000, something like that). - Using both UEFI Mode installation and Vanilla Installation (with Chameleon). - Using modded BIOS to be able to disable some parameters (not willing to change switchable graphics though, it's set to automatic; I once changed that value and run into a blank screen at start up on a HP Laptop). - Changing VRAM value in BIOS varying between 32MB and 512MB (below 32MB and above 512MB will cause problem). - Using different SMBIOS (MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and the generic Mac Pro "3,1") - Using different IG-PlatformID (the 01660003 one was supposed to work, but it doesn't). What I didn't try: - Using DSDT to disable nvidia, I didn't because I can't find a DSDT for that GPU and I can't patch one myself. So my questions now are: - Can't my laptop be hackintoshed ? - Can someone patch a DSDT for me that disables GT740M ? Thank you in advance. hd4000.tiff

  4. Hi! Could anyone help me installing High Sierra on this system? I succesfully installed Sierra before on this system with help of Jake Lo (thanks!!), I just wondering if could High sierra possible to installed on this system? Boot stopped at this. I'll attach my Clover folder and a picture from boot. UEFI enabled, and for skylake I used IntelGraphicsDVMTfixup and IntelGraphicsFixup kexts. My bios is very limited and does not have any option to change dvmt prealloc or anything else. Everything works fine on Sierra.

I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide: Dual-boot clean install (on one drive): 1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart, 3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition). Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive): If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope: You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it). (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB) 1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac. 2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created. 3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image. 4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb. 5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT! 6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above. 7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS! (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.) IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE: Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc): Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found) It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI, but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_Q8uPkwcWQ Here some pictures:

    Installation not working

    Hello! I put a raw image on an USB stick and tried to boot OS X vanilla installation on my Acer Aspire VX15.

I tried to change the SMBios to iMac15,1 but still doesn t work...what can I do? Thanks!
  10. I have Acer Aspire E5-572G [having Core i5-4210M and NVIDIA Geforce 940M 2GB ] and installed Sierra 10.12.2. I have got intelgraphics , brightness ,audio (ALC 283) and wifi (atheros ar956x) working by following guides on this site. But, Trackpad is not working, only keyboard is working after I have installed VoodooPS2Controller.kext . (I think trackpad is synaptics as I install synaptics driver on windows. ) webcam is not working too ( when I open FaceTime , it shows no camera found) I have installed Nvidia web drivers but I think card is not being detected. Battery is draining very fast. Plz guide me how to resolve above issues and what else do I need to do (applying patches or other tweaks etc) to get a fully working Mac. Thanks.
  11. Ciao a tutto ho provato a installare el capitan su un Acer Aspire E5-571/E5-531 series seguendo la guide che ho trovato qua sul forum. Ho creato la chiavetta USB con Clover V5 pero non appena faccio il boot da chiavetta lo schermo diventa nero e rimane cosi. (Per creare la chiavetta ho scaricato OS X sierra poi dall'appstore ho scaricato El Capitan). Qualcuno sa quale può essere il problema. Grazie Mille Come scheda video principale ho una Intel HD 5500 e secondaria una NVIDIA
  12. Hey guys & girls! I am using Acer Aspire One 522 ( sorry if wrong section, I think it's global ). Since I can't find the required kexts for my stuff ( AMD C-60/ATI Radeon 6290 Integrated ) I am planing to replace this cpu. I am using Mavericks 10.9.5. So the question: Could someone recommend APU with Integrated graphics chip which works @Mac OSX for this netbook? ( Kexts, natively, whatever ). Thanks in advance!

    Yosemite Acer v5 471

    Boa noite, Este é meu primeiro post aqui(desculpe se postei no lugar errado), gostaria de fazer um hackintosh no meu notebook porém vai ser a primeira vez, hoje estou usando o Ubuntu 14.04. As configs do meu note são Core i3 segunda geração 4GB de ram Intel HD3000 Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wireless (este pelo que vi não é compatível) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad RealTek RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver Intel Corporation HM77 Express Chipset LPC Controller (rev 04) Não sei se precisaria de mais alguma informação para que possam me direcionar. Desde já agradeço a atenção de todos.
  14. 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!
  15. 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 ?? In dxdiag, I found PS/2 devices connected :: HID Keyboard Device Standard PS/2 Keyboard PS/2 Compatible Mouse HID Compliant mouse. And also, my mouse and keyboard both worked DURING the install, but not after it ???? Edit: Reinstalling with the proper drivers might be better, if somebody provides me with a list of drivers
  16. Salve a tutti. Sono abbastanza informato sull'installazione di osx su macchine non intel. Il problema sorge con questo pc: Acer Aspire M3630 con le seguenti specifiche: MB: ACER EG31M CPU: INTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 RAM: 3GB HDD: 1 X 320GB GPU: NVIDIA GEFORCE 8400GS ( da cambiare ) Installai già leopard, tempo addietro, moddando il bios e seguendo un'altra guida già presente sul forum. Ho fatto vari tentativi, utilizzando anche guide diverse, ma la mobo sembra non riuscire a supportare mavericks. Prima di abbandonare il tutto, vorrei chiedervi una mano. Avete qualche suggerimento?

    iconia w700

    Hi everyone! I´m desperate to get a working osx on my Acre Iconia w700 "laptop". I do not know anyone who owns a mac computer and my computer does not support virtualization so my only alternative is to use iatkos as far as i know. I have tried several guides ( the one on the official iatkos webpage as well as http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/288795-guide-creating-os-x-usb-installer-using-a-windows-pc-only/ from theese forums) i have tried both ml3u and ml2, i have gotten neither to work. The tablet does not have an optical drive so i have to use an usb. I have an usb hub so i can connect 4 usbs even though it only supports 1 usb natively. Using the official iatkos guide i get to the cclover boot menu from which i can try to boot but it doesnt get to the installation procerss but gets stuck at "loading drivers................................" and that only if i use -v -x slider=0 as boot flags. i have tried very many flags. -v -x -f -s slide=0 cpus=1 withkexts graphicsenabler=yes/no ncip=0x3000 / 2000 and others Using the one found on theese forums it gets also to the clover screen but from there i dont even get text, just a black screen. ( the guide says not to change flags but i checked, it has verbose mode on already :/ ) does anyone have any experience with this particular computer or does anyone have any tips? i am completely out of ideas. Its got HD 3000 and i3 2365 and "motherboard chipset Intel HM77 " i have seen videos online of it running osx so i know this must be possible! Thanks you for your time!
  18. Inception After my experience with iAtkos s3 v2 and Acer Aspire One D150 i decided to write a guide can help someone. Hardware Config: This is the hardware configuration of my Acer Aspire One D150-1Bb. It's very important check the components. CPU: Intel Atom N270 @ 1,6Ghz 32-bit RAM: Corsair 2Gb Video: Display Intel 945GSE Wireless: Broadcom4312 Ethernet: Atheros AR8121 Whats is necessary 1. USB Pen 8Gb 2. Ethernet Network 3. An other Hackintosh o Mac 4. Many patience. Pre-Install: Boot from USB After you download the iAtkos s3 v2 (Snow Leopard 10.6.3) ISO you can restore it on USB at least 8Gb. You can do it with another Mac or Hackintosh, or if you have external DvD reader, you can create a DvD to boot. Restore the ISO of iAtkos with Utility Disk and then you must install the bootloader. The only one that works for me it was Chameleon v2 RC4. Pay attention where you install the bootloader! Chameleon 2.0 RC4.zip After that the iAtkos is ready to install. Installation The BIOS Put the USB before start the PC. On Start push F2 to access to BIOS where we need to set the Hard Disk in SATA Mode. So, from "Information" tab slide to "Main" tab and scroll down to "SATA Mode". Set it on "AHCI". After that slide to "Boot" tab and scroll down to USB HDD, pushing F6 take the usb on the first place. Now save all with F10 and Yes. The USB will boot. The Installer I don't write flag on boot for the installation, if you have some problems you can try with verbose (-v). During the installation the trackpad will not work, but the keyboard yes, so you can use a USB Mouse (mine is a wireless mouse, so i suppose they works). With Utility Disk create the partition e go on with the installation. When you select the partition where you want install iAtkos, go on Customization (button on bottom left - I'm Italian, so my label is different). You need to install: Bootloader: Chameleon v2 RC4 (the others bootloader gives to me only problems) Bootloader Options: GraphicsEnabler, USBFix Patches: /Extra directory, fakesmc, Disabler, RTC, Modified Kernels -> Intel Atom, USB, UUID Main Hardware: SATA/IDE: AHCI SATA, Intel SATA/IDE Audio: Voodoo Audio PS/2: Voodoo PS/2 CPU Power Management: select all Laptop Hardware: Battery, Card Reader, TSC Sync VGA: Intel (select the first three voice) Network: Wireless: don't select anything. Bcm4312 card gives to me some problem during the first boot, so we will install it after. Wired: Atheros (Select all) Now you can install iAtkos s3 v2. Post-Install: il primo avvio Try one first boot without flag on boot, if you can't start try with these: -v -f npci=0x2000 arch=i386 cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No(o Yes) Follow the first boot and the configuration of your account and now download all necessary files for setting up the aspire one, because after that you can have some USB problems. Now reboot. Because the CPU is an Intel Atom we need to use a modified kernel. You can find here ( here the original post) the atom kernel of Snow Leopard 10.6.8 . More or less i followed the post step by step, skipping some step about SL 10.6.7. IT'S VERY IMPORTANT do a backup of the kext IOUSBFamily.kext e IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext that are necessary to work the USB after the update, that replaces this files. What you have to do: 1. Download and unzip the kernel on Desktop 2. Start Terminal.app and write this sudo -s mv ~/Desktop/mach_kernel_atom / cd ~/Desktop mkdir backup cd /S*/L*/E* cp -R AppleHDA.kext ~/Desktop/backup/ cp -R IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext ~/Desktop/backup/ cp -R IOUSBFamily.kext ~/Desktop/backup/ Now you can start the update ONLY FROM COMBO UPDATE (you can find here). IT'S VERY IMPORTANT that, when update finish: NOT reboot. 3. Back on Terminal and write cd /S*/L*/E* rm -Rf AppleIntelGMA950.kext rm -Rf AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext rm -Rf AppleHDA.kext cp -R ~/Desktop/backup/* ./ 4. Delete SleepEnabler.kext On my installation the "Extra" folder was hidden, so with ShowHiddenFiles.app you need to show it. ShowHiddenFiles.zip Delete SleepEnabler.kext from /Extra/Extensions*. *(If you don't find SleepEnabler.kext on /Extra/Extensions search it on /Sistema/Libreria/Extensions) What you need to do if you forget to delete SleepEnabler.kext 5. Restore USB kext We put "backups" folder on S/L/E (/System/Library/Extensions) folder so copy IOUSBFamily.kext and IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext and paste it on /S/L/E. If you not have a backup there is mine: USB Fix 10.6.8.zip Repair permissions with KextUtility. 6. Edit kernel on boot.plist On my Extra folder i don't have any org.chameleon.boot.plist, so i edit com.apple.boot.plist on /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration. Copy the file and past it on Desktop, then open it with TextEdit.app, changing: <key>Kernel</key> <string>custom</string> to <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel_atom</string> PAY ATTENTION about you write. For a wrong word the system doesn't boot Check that the value <key>USBBusFix</key> <string>Yes</string> is in the file. Now save and copy com.apple.boot.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration replacing the older. [if you want you can copy it also on /Extra] If you want: You can create org.chameleon.boot.plist copying the text of com.apple.boot.plist and you can create the smbios.plist file with Chameleon Wizard to put it on /Extra. 6. Now you can reboot. First boot after Update to 10.6.8 Now we not have any VGA driver, so: 1. from the backup folder restore the AppleHDA.kext on /System/Library/Extensions. 2. unzip the VGA drivers: 3438-GMA950 for 10.zip and put all files on /S/L/E/. 3. Repair the permissions with KextUtility.app 4. Reboot. Wireless 1. From SLE copy IONetworkingFamily.kext and past it on Desktop. 2. Now put it on /Extra/Extensions. (Don't skip the copy on Desktop or you can have permissions problem) 3. Unzip the driver Broadcom Broadcom43XXFamily.kext.zip and put it on /Extra/Extensions 4. Repair permissions 5. Reboot Issues Trackpad: After the repair of USB and reboot the trackpad doesn't works, so i fixed it with this pkg VoodooPS2Controller.pkg.zip USB recognized by System Information but not mounted: You need to restore IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext (at the end of topic) and IOUSBFamily.kext, both of kext. At the time all seems works! Credits A special thanks to carbo178, which helped me to solve all the problems after installation and without whom I would have (most likely) trashed my netbook Files Chameleon 2.0 RC4.zip ShowHiddenFiles.zip USB Fix 10.6.8.zip Kernel Atom qui (Original post qui) 3438-GMA950 for 10.zip Broadcom43XXFamily.kext.zip VoodooPS2Controller.pkg.zip

  20. Hello all, After 2 days of experimenting, I finally have Mac OSX Lion 1.7.2 working on my Acer Aspire. Everything works perfectly, from the battery driver to the sounds, and from the touchpad to the keyboard. Except: the grahpics. I can boot with every resolution with the "Graphics Mode""="1600x900x32" boot line, but the system only recognises 5 MB of my 1GB video memory. Just because of that little fact it's almost impossible to work with the setup. Even the OSX line screensaver laggs like hell. Also, when I don't put a Graphics Mode option, I only get the 1024x768 resolution in the display settings, and when I do set the mode, I get only my entered mode. So, I need some help of you guys. I really would like to get the correct drivers for this system. when I use hardware information software like CPU-Z or HardwareMonitor on my windows os, I get "AMD Radeon 6600M and 6700M Series". I just can't find the exact type. I really, really hope someone can guide me into the right direction, as I'm thrilled to get started with Lion! Thanks all in advance, and hoping for an answer, Basaa

You can download it from here. - STOP: It works after installing the clover bootloader, doing the "GPU step" and putting the patched DSDT in /EFI/ACPI/patched/. You can download clover bootloader from here: http://www.insanelym...-instructions/. Thanks to giofrida for the DSDT patch and to mmon for his help to activate the GPU. COMBO UPDATE: - COMBO UPDATE 10.8.1: Installed without problems. I didn't need to reinstall any kext. - COMBO UPDATE 10.8.2: Installed without problems. I had to reinstall only battery kexts. - COMBO UPDATE 10.8.3: Installed without problems. I had to reinstall only battery kexts. LEGEND: - RED: problem that I haven't fixed - BLUE: problem not completely fixed - GREEN: problem fixed -Claudio
  25. Note: I hope this tutorial will be inspiration for somebody willing to install Sierra on unsupported hackintoshes! As you may know, I’ve installed before Snow Leopard, Yosemite and El Capitan on this computer. You can find my tutorials on insanelymac. Now it’s time for Sierra 10.12.4. You need to upgrade the processor to a Core2Duo T9300 (20 euros). I highly recommend having 3 GB of RAM installed, and a SSD drive (I have a 120 GB SSD, 50 euros). And you’ll need a real mac or a hackintosh (maybe this same Acer 5315, if you have it hackintoshed) to create the installer and so on. We will use 2 USB sticks, one of them has to be 8 GB or larger, and an external HDD. Important: Use the left top USB and the right one. Don’t use the left bottom USB, because it will be disabled and Sierra will not detect it. PART 1: The installation process Take the “small” USB stick. In my case, I’m using a 128 MB microSD with a small USB reader. You have to format it with a MBR partition scheme. Create a HFS partition on it. You can use Disk Utility. Let’s call it “installU”. Install Enoch-rev.2839.pkg on installU. You only have to select one option. Under “Bootloader Chameleon”, mark the second option saying "Install Chameleon in the chosen partition". Be sure you are installing it on installU, use the option "Change install location...". Install Clover_v2.4k_r4049.pkg on installU. You have to check 3 options. First, “Bootloader/install boot0af in MBR”; second, “CloverEFI/CloverEFI 64-bits SATA”. Third, and optional, “Themes/BGM”. Be sure you are installing it on installU, use the option "Change install location...". Download the ZIP I provide with some important things you will need (here). From the ZIP file, take the EFI folder and overwrite the one you have on installU. With this, we have some important kexts, a patched DSDT.aml, and a great config.plist that says we have a Macbook 5,1. Now you have a USB stick that can boot Clover. You need to be sure your Acer boot from it. So, you will have to go to BIOS pressing F2 and select it as the first boot option. Note: Clover will appear in some seconds. It will take some time the first time you boot with this USB stick. You have to boot from InstallU every time you boot or reboot during the entire step 7. Now we need to create the Sierra installer on the other USB, let’s call it “installSie”, and install Sierra on the external HDD. To do that, just follow the instructions by Dosdude. The link: http://dosdude1.com/sierrapatch.html Basically, what you will do: a. You will download Sierra 10.12.4.dmg. You can do that in this webpage. b. You will format installSierra as GUID and with a HFS+ Journaled partition. c. You will download and use a tool to create the installSie USB stick. d. Once installed, you will have to boot from installU and select the installS USB stick to boot the Sierra installer. e. Inside of the Sierra installed, you will take the external HDD and format it as GUID and with a HFS+ Journaled partition. Let’s call it “SierraHDD”. If you are an advanced user, maybe you have the HDD in this way; so, you will be able to skip this step. Or you can even have on the HFS partition a Captain backup done with Carbon Copy Cloner and the system will be updated to Sierra without losing your apps and files, at least, supposedly. f. You will install macOS Sierra on SierraHDD with the installer. Maybe you will need an USB keyboard! I needed it during the installation and the first boots of Sierra, until Sierra detected I had a keyboard, and I configured it pressing one key from the keyboard when Sierra asked me to do that. g. IMPORTANT: You have to run macOS Post Install as it’s described in this webpage, selecting the default patches for a Macbook 5,1. h. When you do all of this, you have Sierra installed on SierraHDD and you are booting your computer with InstallU to tell Clover to boot macOS from the external HDD. NOTE: Be patient. We are doing a thing that is not very supported by our BIOS. BIOS needs tones of time to boot from a GPT partition. So, installerU needs time to load the Sierra installer. When we boot the SierraHDD from Clover, it requires time, too. Maybe 5 minutes, or even more. PART 2: Post installation process (optional) Now you have to decide what to do. Now Sierra boots but it needs a lot of time to do that, due to the fact it’s installed on a GPT disk. Note: This SierraHHD gives you the power to boot Mac real computers and even some Sierra unsupported real Macs, as the Macbook 5,1. An option is taking your internal HDD, format it as MBR, clone Sierra using Carbon Copy Clone to the internal SSD, and do steps from 2 to 5 to make your internal SDD bootable. In this way, you will not need the installU USB stick anymore and Sierra will boot very fast. When this is done, you can go to the BIOS pressing F2 when booting and tell Acer to boot from the internal HDD/SSD. Why are you doing all this? Because Sierra needs to be installed on a GPT disk and it refuses to be installed on a MBR disk. Once installed, we can trick it as I have just explained. PART 3: Issues Remember, Intel GMA X3100 graphics card is not supported by Sierra. So, it’s detected thanks to the GMA X3100 kexts, from OS X Hackers. But we don’t have OpenGL, neither QE/CI. The loss you have with this is partially solved by the internal SSD. Sincerely, if you use the Acer for web surfing and office work, it’s ok in my opinion. Wifi is not working. Sound is not working. Ethernet is not working correctly. Left bottom USB port is not working (it didn’t work when I had El Capitan). What I’ve done: Wi-FI: I don’t use it, but you can find info here (there is a list of native airport half mini cards). I have bought an Atheros AR5B91 Mini PCI-E Card (an used one costs 3-5 euros on eBay). It's detected out-of-the-box as it was an Airport card. Ethernet: I had at home two USB Ethernet cards. TP-LINK UE300, 1 Gbps, 20 euros, it works out-of-the-box. UGREEN USB 2.0 Multifunction Hub with Ethernet, 20 euros, it works out-of-the-box. I personally use the UGREEN because I need more than two USB ports. Audio: I have an external USB device from EC Technology, 9 euros, out-of-the-box (link to it: https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B011QA7R9O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). UPDATED (21th April 2017): Install these kexts in S/L/E. Rename AppleHDA-patched-alc268.kext to AppleHDA.kext before doing that. Remember, if you update Sierra you will probably need to reinstall these kexts. You can install them using Kext Utility v2.6.6. Download them from here. You will have to use a new config.plist for Clover. Download it from here. Overwrite your config.plist with this one. Credits: Mirone and his fabulous AppleHDA Patcher.app Another thing: This Acer 5315-5715z doesn't need one of the most supposedly needed kexts from /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12/: NullCPUPowerManagement.kext. I'm not using it at all, although it is in EFI Clover Kexts folder: you can delete it. This is because Core2Duo T9300 is supported by macOS Sierra out-of-the-box. Remember, if you have cloned Sierra to the MBR formatted internal SSD, you have an external HDD as a backup. If you have done all the process with your Acer 5315, and you have, as it’s my case, an Acer 5715z, you will be able to boot the 5715z with the InstallU USB stick and this external HDD, out-of-the-box. It will need some time, you know why, as it happens with the 5315. Updated (21th April 2017): I've used this GPT external HDD to boot from it, directly, without any installation process, Sierra on a Lenovo U330, and, after that, I have cloned it to the Lenovo's internal HDD using Carbon Copy Cloner, installed Clover to the Lenovo's internal HDD, and it works nicely; so, this external HDD is a very good aid to create more hackintoshes. Credits All the hackintosh community, and the "unsupported mac hackers", in this case, OS X Hackers and TRMJIJ, and Dosdude1. Thanks to merging the knowledge from the two communities, installing Sierra on this unsupported machine has become a reality. Finally, audio kext has been created thanks to Mirone.
