  1. In this Hackintosh tutorial I'm covering all aspects of Dual Boot Windows and macOS. How to avoid problems, best settings, Pros and Cons.
  2. Hello all, I am attempting my first Hackintosh build on OS X Sierra (10.12.4). While doing so I seemed to have ran into a brick wall. I cant even get the initial setup going to install OS X. It gives a kernel panic every single time. I've tried everything I could think to do to try and fix this, problem is there wasn't really much I could think of besides to format and re-create the Install USB. Below, I will walk you through my hardware and the steps I've taken to reach said kernel panic. This post may be lengthy so, thanks to all that take the time to read it all and offer advice. Advisory: I use the Clover bootloader and Clover Configurator in the steps below. These are a must for me! (Sorry [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] fans) Hardware: Mobo: Asus Z170-Deluxe CPU: i7 6700K RAM: 4x8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti Founder's Edition (Not yet purchased, so not a factor as of now) PSU: Corsair RM750 SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 512GB (yet to be formatted, used in a fully working previous El Capitan Hackintosh build) Install USB: PNY 8GB USB 2.0 thumb drive Current Mac: MacBook Pro 17", Early 2011 Process: Step 1 - Download OS X Sierra from AppStore Note: As you can see from my System Info above, I have an SSD as a startup disk. This SSD is not very large in storage capacity so I use external thunderbolt hard drives to save all of my data. When I downloaded OS X Sierra, it was stored on said external drive. Step 2 - Format USB 1 Partition Named "Installer" OS Extended (Journaled) GUID Partition Table Step 3 - Create Sierra USB Install Drive I was able to easily and successfully complete this step by using Terminal. Since my "Install macOS Sierra.app" wasn't in the default location, I simply had to point to it in the Terminal command. Step 4 - Install Clover Bootloader I used the following customization options when installing Clover Bootloader to my USB: Step 5 - Download kexts and other essential files FakeSMC.kext AppleIntelE1000e.kext VoodooHDA.pkg Clover Configurator.app Nvidia Web Driver Nvidia Cuda Driver Note: Put all these in a folder in the root of the install USB for post-install. Step 6 - Clover Configurator I used the following flags and other options in my Clover config.plist (Most things were left as default, not sure if this is the problem) Step 7 - BIOS Settings I used the BIOS settings in wildwillow's build guide here as reference, since he seemed to have the most similar hardware to me that I could find.

Step 8 - Boot to USB (Kernel Panic) Clover Bootloader comes up fine, and begins to countdown. I selected Boot OS X Install from Install macOS Sierra , then the verbose log began to run. After a few seconds, kernel panic. Here are some pics of panic log(please excuse the dirty monitor...): So this is where I am. I haven't a clue what the problem even is, so I'm not sure how to go about fixing it. It's super frustrating to have almost everything in place, and some unknown error keeps me from just installing OS X. I know my hardware is supported. As stated above, the SSD I am using has been used in a previous Hackintosh build where I used El Capitan. As a test, I did install OS X Sierra on this SSD to see if it was stable. I haven't formatted the drive yet as the kernel panic issue hasn't allowed me to get to Disk Utility. However, I am not sure if that even matters. I am just at wits end and am trying to include every little detail so the experts here can perhaps find a solution for me. Anyway, thanks for reading. Any help offered is greatly appreciated! Best regards -xJPN

    Mountain Lion Instant reboot

    Hi I'm having issues booting into my ML os using Clover bootloader. When i choose my ML option to boot from and do -v it instantly reboots ... i used myhack app to setup everything and i used amd_kernel / renamed to mach_kernel.
  4. I finally got Yosemite release version loaded onto my Envy 3317u i5. It's very nice, everything working except it doesn't show my serial number. The same config with SMBios boot with 10.9.4 without any problem, only Yosemite doesn't show serial number. I used the rolled back AppleACPIPlatform.kext version 2.0. If I use original AppleACPIPlatform.kext, I can't boot unless in safe mode and the serial number is there. How do I fix this with rolled back ACPI? This is the reason why people can't get to iMessage or iCloud because there's no serial number. Thanks, Louis
