  1. Respaldo Bios VIT m2400

    Buenas tardes, Tengo un problema grande y complicado, solicito la ayuda de una persona que pueda darme una mano. Resulta que tengo una VIT M2400 plateada y por estar leyendo que habia una actualizacion para la bios le di instalar y ahora se desactivo la opcion "ahci" y no puedo ni volver a instalarle Win7 ni 10. He tratado de conseguir activar la opcion por ms-dos con symcmos y consegui ver la lista de codigos pero entre casi 300 o mas codigos no se cual activar y no quiero probar activar uno por uno por miedo a empeorar la situacion, he buscado en internet alguna backup y no he dado hasta ahora con ninguno, he conseguido multiples programas pero con la actualizacion en formato "WHP" ninguno logra abrirlo. logre conseguir dos imagenes bios pero no tengo la seguridad si me podrian ayudar o dañar la laptop. La pregunta es para saber si alguien que posea una laptop de igual modelo me podria ayudar haciendo una copia de su imagen bios y asi yo poder seguir con la creacion de una hackintosh. yo logre hacer el usb boot y se instalo pero por el error de la ahci no pude disfrutar del sistema por unos panic kernels los cuales no les consegui solucion en ningun lado. Agradezco de antemano la ayuda de la persona que pueda ayudarme. Si alguien puede ofrecerme una ayuda le agradeceria de corazon ya no se que hacer tengo bastante tiempo tratando de solucionar el problema pero no lo consigo.
  2. Hi everybody. I'm trying to install El Capitan on an Acer Aspire E5-573, but I'm stuck in installer, which is not showing up the internal hard disk. I already installed the system with the hard drive connected into a USB case, but when I try to boot it without the USB Case, the boot get stucked at the "prohibited" logo (I think this is getting 'still waiting for root device'). I suspect that the main problem is the Intel9 Series SATA Controller, which is not being recognized by the El Capitan. I already tried 3 types of kexts for activate the SATA controller, but no lucky at all. The system specs: Acer Aspire E5-573 Processor Intel Core i5 5200U Integrated Graphics Intel HD 5500 (will fight with that {censored} later) Intel 9 Series Chipset 12GB RAM Wireless Atheros AR9565 (will be replaced) Ethernet Realtek RTL8168/8111 Audio Realtek ALC255 So I'm bumping my head into the wall through the last 5 days with no luck to get this machine up and working. Any help will be welcome! Thx.
  3. Does anybody know if it possible to get work C602 chipset 4-Port SATA Storage Control Unit (8086:1D6B) Device on Yosemite? AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext (AHCI Device Injection) didn't work.
  4. Salve ragazzi, è da tempo che cerco di installare sto benedetto Hackintosh nel mio Hard Disk, ma proprio non riesco. Ho provato con Niresh ma al momento della scelta del Hard Disk, non mi riconosce il mio, solo uno esterno (infatti l' ho installato su Hard Disk Esterno) però ho la necessità di farlo partire su quello interno, purtroppo la mia scheda madre non supporta la modalità AHCI, infatti nel BIOS l'opzione "SATA Mode Select" è bloccato su "RAID Mode". Se sapete un modo per risolvere questo problema..

  6. I'm planning to upgrade the SSD in my Z68 to something bigger and have been tempted to go PCIe by the speeds of the Samsung XP941/SM951. These drives don't have any bootcode and rely on a UEFI driver in the BIOS. Now, I've seen posts where people have added the SAMSUNG_M2_DXE uefi driver to their BIOS and successfully booted the XP941. However, the SM951 is newer, faster and in some places cheaper than the older XP941. Modding my BIOS isn't a problem, but from reading some forum posts I'm not convinced I'll be able to boot the 951 with it. My Z68 can boot UEFI but there's no option to disable CSM and some posts suggest this is required to get Windows installed. When I had Ozmosis on this board I had no problem loading it or the HFS driver so I'm not sure if disabling CSM is a required step to load a UEFI driver in general. I currently dual-boot 7 and OS X via Clover and plan to do this with the new drive as well. So, the question is, has anyone actually done this yet? The alternative is to get a regular SATA drive as the speeds of the other PCIe drives aren't too spectacular (apart from the bigger and more expensive Intel 750). I'd like to try PCIe just for a change but at @ €200 for the ssd and adapter card I can't take the risk of it not working.
  7. Hi there, First of all I'm new to forum and hackintosh, so I am sorry i posted in wrong place. after 3 days I finally got to boot OSX Yosemite installer using clover with a USB, but now I face anther problem and that is it doesn’t detect my HDD (in disk utility it only shows my USB Flash). PS: hp bios doesn’t let you choose between BIOS SATA setup from IDE to AHCI. any help is much appreciated My notebook specs: HP ENVY dv6 Notebook PC CPU = Intel Core i7 3630QM Ivy Bridge Ram = 8GB HDD = 700GB Display Adapter =Intel® HD Graphics 4000 Graphic Card = 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M
  8. Confusão na instalação

    Olá povo bonito, venho aqui porque ando lendo muito na internet sobre hackintosh e eticéteras. Em grande parte de tutoriais na internet diz para antes da instalação ir na bios e mudar as configs para iniciar o computador pelo cd ou usb. Até aí tudo bem. O grande problema é que também diz que é necessario configurar a bios para trocar o modo do hd de ide para ahci ou de ahci para ide, uns dizem uma coisa outros outra. Na minha bios simplesmente NÃO TINHA essas opções de IDE, AHCI e etc. Atualizei a bios e NADA. Mas e aí? Vai funcionar sem trocar essas opções? Vai dar problema na inicialização? Tá tudo de boa e não precisa mexer em nada? O que eu faço?
  9. myHack doesn't validate my system volume and i can't proceed with OS X installation. The OS volume is currently running a UEFI Windows installation on GPT drive. BIOS has AHCI and UEFI boot enabled. I used myHack 3.3.1 and Mountain Lion InstallESD.dmg Thoughts???
  10. Hi. I've been using snow leopard for the past 10 months on this machine, quite comfortably but with some software limitations of course, but yesterday my main hard drive died, so I'm taking this opportunity to install Mavericks on a new hard drive I will buy in the morning. but I'd like some guidance. I was planning on also buying a SATA controller card but I don't know if I'll be able to find one soon (I asked arround last time, no one had one) so I'm going to see if i can install it mavericks anyway. I've seen in other topics people saying install this kext install that kext but i don't understand how you'd install it when you cant even boot into the osx installer, or how does one go about making the installer boot with no AHCI. I downloaded the niresh distro and put it on an usb but every time i try to boot from it a spinning / appears and then my computer restarts. I suspected it was because I had usb legacy disabled on the bios because i needed it to boot to snow leopard but its not it. also verbose mode doesn't give me any feedback, the letters scroll too fast before restarting, it's a hard restart. is this distro the best way to install mavericks on my system? how can i make it work and if not can someone please help me with what kext to install and the preparation of the installer? I hope I can get some help soon because i'll go downtown in the morning to buy the hard drive and if possible the SATA III controller card and I really need to get this computer set up today or else Ill be behind on my work. I have a macbook running 10.8.5 where I can do stuff in with dmg files and stuff like that if necessary. I'm sorry for the newb questions and thanks in advanced. my system is: Mobo: Asrock N68C-S UCC 
CPU: Phenom II X4 940 BE
 RAM: 4gb ddr2 1066 
GFX: XFX Radeon HD 4850
  11. So I've had this system running perfect on Lion for a while... AHCI accomplished by setting BIOS to RAID mode w/o configuring any drives for RAID. This works perfectly, with greatly improved speed over IDE, but now, when I attempt to install 10.9 by MyHack, the installer cannot find the HDD's. This is odd, because I can install fine by adding AppleIntelPIIXATA.kext... Do any of you geniuses have a idea what's going on?
  12. Ajuda na instalação do MAC

    Olá pessoal, estou abrindo um novo tópico, porque, honestamente, eu estou a 3 meses tentando instalar o Mac, mas eu não posso. Meu pc tem a seguinte configuração: Mobo MSI G41M-S01 (MS-7592) Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66Ghz DDR3 de 4GB GeForce 9500 GT 512MB Nvidea 500GB HD Windows 7 Então, queria saber como fasso para rodar Mac OS X Mountain Lion ou qualquer SO Mac no meu PC. E qual usar o ibot, ibot legacy ou o Nawcom Mod ja que acho que minha placa mãe não suporta ahci ?
  13. No Hard Drives

    I have started testing Mavericks DP1 and installed it on spare USB drive. Specs: Supermicro X8DAE Dual Xeon 5530 Nvidia GTX 570 24GB RAM From Mountain Lion installation I already know that this motherboard won't work properly W/O replacing AppleACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily kexts (freezing etc.). So, I have installed as usual with -x, installation went smoothly, but when I replace those two kexts and reboot all my HDDs are missing. In verbose mode I see that com.apple.driver.AHCIPort has failed to load because of some error ..... I suppose that we'll need updated AppleACPIPlatform and IOPCIFamily kexts for Mavericks?
  14. [solved since writing] For help to others. Installed AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext in S/L/E, repaired permissions and all works (with -f at present) with Dell 435 BIOS set to RAID. Did not remove any other kexts as there seemed to be no other AHCIInjccetors that ahd been installed. Now just have to work out how to change windows. --------------------------------- I have Dell 435MT (BIOS options are only ATA and RAID , which many says ==AHCI). I have a working dual boot system with Win7x64 and OSX 10.8.2 (performed with myHack awith 10.8 and then upgraded to 10.8.2) - there is no DSDT used.Having ordered a SSD I realise now I need to change to AHCI and need to get it working in OSX first before I change Windows (where I can change I believe with registry change). If I change the BIOS to RAID(Dell===AHCI) and boot with -f then the system hangs at [starting PCI Configuration] but there is no Kernal Panics. I had thought that as OSX was AHCI based the kext would be present and it would adapt with -f but I obviously need to make soem adjustment. preseumably myHack did not install these at the time. Do I need to do a reinstall something I would like to avoid? I have found two kexts (AHCI_3rdParty_eSATA and AHCI_3rdParty_SATA) do I need to add these to S/L/E to get it to work. I also found AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext which has been used successfully with a Dell 435 and the instructions say "Also included IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector in it, for all drives to show internal and DVD keyboard eject/DVD.app fix. RAID ID's are also included for all the AHCI/RAID switchable controllers I could find. Remove other AHCI or BlockStorage injectors and install to S/L/E" Is this kext what I should use and what are the other AHCI or BlockStorage Injectors I should remove? Thanks for any help anybody can give.
  15. AppleAHCIPort.kext (for RAID)

    Version 1.0 (only version)


    This modified AppleAHCIPort.kext makes it possible to Hackintosh laptops and desktops that are locked in RAID SATA mode. I've personally only tested it with the HP m6-1045dx laptop, which uses a classic locked BIOS and HM77 "Panther Point" chipset paired with the Ivy Bridge i5. Based on the nature of the kext, I would say this can work with other computers, just give it a go! ------------------------ Why do I need this kext? If your SATA-connected hard drive isn't being detected by the OS X installer and you have no control over SATA mode in BIOS/EFI (ie, IDE, RAID, AHCI modes). Common with the latest (2012 at least and newer) HP laptops, probably the trend for many OEMs these days. ------------------------ Install via Kext Wizard, probably a good idea to rebuild cache/repair permissions (also via Kext Wizard) while you're at it! Thanks to eep357 for making this file!
  16. I found how to have your system's SATA controller information displayed correctly within the Serial-ATA section of the System Profiler / System Information pages. As long as you can obtain the Device ID and Vendor ID of what the system has, then it should be fairly simple. Procedure: 1) Use a program like lspci or System Info to list the devices. 2) Find all SATA storage devices, making sure each unique combination is recorded. 3) Proceed to copy AppleAHCIPort.kext to your favorite working directory from /System/Library/Extensions, as well as copying the original version to a location separate from this working directory. You may need to put the original back into /System/Library/Extensions if there is a problem later. 4) Once in the Finder, open the kext with Show Package Contents and navigate to the Contents directory, expanding it to open the internal Info.plist. 5) Once editing Info.plist with your favorite xml editor, navigate to the IOKitPersonalities section and add the necessary details for each SATA controller. Start by copying an existing entry that closely resembles the details for the added controller. I used one that already has the IOPCIPrimaryMatch sub-key. After that, proceed to modify the main key for the controller you are adding. For example, my system has both a Marvell 88SE9172 and AMD SB950. I made the sub-keys immediately below IOKitPersonalities my own invention, following the pattern of the already existing ones. For example, I entered: Marvell88SE9172AHCI AMDSB9x0AHCI 6) The Chipset Name sub-key is modified to something meaningful. The vendor name sub-key is pre-pended in the Memory section, so it may as well be absent in this value string. For example, mine are: 88SE9172 SATA AHCI Controller SB950 SATA AHCI Controller 7) Modify the IOPCIPrimaryMatch to match the Device ID and Vendor ID within your system. For example, mine are: 0x91721b4b 0x43911002 8) Finally, update the the Vendor Name to match the SATA Controller vendor within your system. For example, mine are: Marvell AMD 9) Save this working copy Info.plist to your working directory. 10) Copy this Info.plist into the AppleAHCIPort.kext | Contents directory within /System/Library/Extensions, replacing the Info.plist already there. 11) Answer the prompt for authenticating this replacement. 12) Use your favorite method to update the /System/Library/Extensions caches and permissions to be sure all is well. I use Kext Wizard, since I get tired of typing all of the commands within Terminal. 13) Reboot. 14) Inspect and confirm the new SATA controller details are now showing in the System Profiler / System Information | Hardware | Serial-ATA section. Note that no binary files are affected by this addition to the AppleAHCIPort.kext | Contents | Info.plist. Here is what the raw xml looks like inside Info.plist. The IOKitPersonalities and MCP79AHCI keys are shown for reference to assist understanding that the new controller entries have been placed alphabetically under the IOKitPersonalities key. The entries I made look like: AMD SB 950 SATA Controller Entry: <key>IOKitPersonalities</key> <dict> <key>AMDSB9x0AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>SB950 SATA AHCI Controller</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAHCI</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x43911002</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>AMD</string> </dict> . . . . . . Marvell 88SE9172 SATA Controller Entry: <key>Marvell88SE9172AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>88SE9172 SATA AHCI Controller</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAHCI</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x91721b4b</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>Marvell</string> </dict> <key>MCP79AHCI</key> <dict> . . . . . . I did this for both the retail Snow Leopard and Lion installations on my FX-8350 system.
  17. Version 2.5.1 (12F45)


    Patched IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext into IOAHCIFamily.kext. Also include the Yellow icon fix. (No AppleACHIPort.kext patched file required). (Credits) List of the edited controller goes to eep357. Patches and edit by me (ErmaC) Replace this kext file with the original present in /System/Library/Extensions/ Rebuild system cache and repair disk permission. Enjoy! ErmaC
  18. Inicio e modo AHCI - Dúvidas :(

    Eai pessoal, blz ? Estou 'estreando' tanto aqui no fórum como no Hackintosh, então não sei se meu tópico está na área certa e não estranhem se eu disser algo n00b demais hehehe Vamos lá, a minha configuração é a da assinatura (acho que exagerei em detalhar heheh) e sempre usei várias versões do Windows, como Vista, 7 e 8. Essas sem poupar nenhuma frescura gráfica e nunca tive nenhum tipo de travamento ou lag por conta de efeitos. Me tornei fã da Apple quando adquiri meu iPod Classic 160GB e virei um verdadeiro fanboy depois do meu iPod Touch 4g 32GB e sempre quis instalar o MAC OS X, nem que fosse pra testar e de uns dias pra cá estive convicto de que quero largar o Windows hahaha Mas meus problemas começaram quando descobri que minha placa-mãe não tem suporte para AHCI, mesmo assim me aventurei a instalar o iAtkos L2. Ele reconheceu e começou a bootar mas parou na tela da maçã sem a bolinha girando em baixo (deixei uns 30min naquela tela e nada). Creio que seja por conta do maldito AHCI. Vou tentar com o Snow Leopard by hazard, mas e se não der certo ? O que devo fazer ? Desde já agradeço, abcs..
  19. Fala galera! Decidi montar um PC com um hardware compatível com o OSX. Mother INTEL DX58SO 16 Gb RAM DDR3 Kingston HD 1TB Samsung Placa de Vídeo NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 1Gb Processador Intel i7 3,24 Ghz Bastou criar um pendrive de boot com o ###### + imagem de instalação do Mountain Lion e quase tudo funcionou perfeitamente. Para o som utilizei o ###### (selecionando os drivers ALC8xx). Não consegui fazer funcionar a rede wireless e o bluetooth. Ambos são USB e aparecem no relatório do sistema. O Adapt.Wireless é o ASUS EZ N10 e o Bluetooth é Cambridge Silicon Radio. Preciso instalar mais alguma coisa? Talvez seja possível melhorar o desempenho desta máquina, pois no Geekbench o desempenho não foi tão bom. Continuo conseguindo bootar o sistema apenas pelo pendrive. Como bootar pelo HD?!

  20. I installed a second hard drive into my Alienware M14x by replacing the optical drive with a caddy. I installed lion on the second hard drive, and it boots fine, but it's really slow after it boots. Sometimes when I click on anything, it just hangs for about 10 seconds then loads, but it's pretty inconsistent - sometimes its fine, sometimes it hangs. It's odd because I had lion working perfectly fine in the primary HDD bay, but when I move it to the optical drive caddy, it's slows down. I was having this same problem in Windows, but I fixed it by installing Intel's Rapid Storage Technology drivers. Is there some sort of equivalent Kext, or something else that I should be doing to make it work properly? System Information says it's got an Intel 6 Series chipset. I know the optical drive port is only SATA 1.5 Gbps, but I don't think that should really affect it as much as it is.
  21. Instalar sem AHCI

    Eu fui tentar instalar o Snow Retail só que ai ele ficou no Still Waiting for Root Device, e na minha BIOS não tem a opção de AHCI. Fui tentar instalar com o Hazard, já que eu vi aqui (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=215028) que na Hazard tem a kext ApplPIXAATA que deixa ele instalar sem ter o AHCI, só que em -v ele também fica preso em Still Waiting for Root Device. Eu não sei mais o que fazer. Hardware: Mobile DualCore Intel Pentium T3200, 2000 MHz Wistron 360B 3GB de RAM Intel ICH9M/M-E Family 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller
  22. Hey, first i want to say that i'm new, and not from USA so my english isnt good. I do everything right, buy Lion from app store, make the bootable pen drive, but my MB doesnt have AHCI mode, its a gigabyte G31M ESL2. What can i do ? Is because of my computer that USB doesnt load? Thnx
  23. Hey guys! I have already got Snow Leopard 10.6.8 installed on my Desktop PC, and now I would like to install it on my laptop.

I want to remove Linux, format its partition and install Mac OSX instead of it. The problem is that it says Still waiting for root device when booting in verbose mode, so I think it does not detect my hard disk drive. AHCI Mode is on! Do you have any idea what I could do? Here i've uploaded screenshots of the BIOS, Chimera and what Darwin verbose mode tells me. When using a distribution like iAtkos L2 its exactly the same. Thank you in advance! Max
  24. Hey when i go into my bios to change it to AHCI. Theres NO option to change it. Why cant i change it! I want hackintosh but i cant get it to work without AHCI Dell Inspiron 620 MT Desktop
