  1. Pessoal estou tomando um baile na tentativa de fazer meu hack. Minha mobo é uma Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 (conforme minha assinatura). Possuo 02 x SSD M.2 950 Pro NVMe onde num deles tenho o Win10 instalado e no outro obviamente eu quero instalar o Sierra 10.12.3 (que foi o que baixei da App Store). Segui o tutorial daqui na criação do pendrive e tal mas estou tendo erro. Me disseram que eu tinha que remover da instalação a kext IONVMeFamily.kext na pasta system/library/extensions, o que eu fiz, e incluir na pasta das kexts do Clover (Other) a kext HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_3.kext Mas só está dando erro e por isso peço ajuda aqui pois sou totalmente novato no assunto. As Kexts que eu tenho no Clover são: FakeSMC.kext USBInjectAll.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_3.kext e o erro que está dando é esse:
  2. Hi there. Previously, I installed Mavericks and Mountain Lion with Niresh's Distros and worked well! I did shrink like 50gigs of storage for Mac installation, created usb with the help of instruction, changed bios settings, and were ready to rock with dual boot support and every time it worked out without an issue! Though I had my old pc that time. But I guess, from EL Capitan, things got messier a bit. Now I have to erase things and install mac first and then windows for dual boot. Also, I bought new pc, so whole bios settings are new to me. Conclusion : I need the latest Hackintosh with proper dual boot with my Windows 10, and I don't want to format nor erase anything on my HDD, and don't wanna format my windows 10. my father does work on this pc, me too, so please make sure nothing goes wrong, no file losing stuff please. I don't have other HDD so please I need the help. I want to install the mac on this existing windows machine. I could barely format windows 10 drive 'C' only and after mac, I will install windows again, but make sure except drive: C, no other drives get any effect at all. And also, as I said, my PC is new, telling the specs of this pc, so please mention the bios settings and drivers stuff if possible. Please help me with Bios settings at least if drivers are not possible. Motherboard: MSI B250M PRO-VH CPU: Core i3 7100 (7th gen) RAM: HyperX 8GB DDR4 2400mhz HDD: 500GB SATA [GPT Partition] GPU: Nvidia 1050 TI 4GB Monitor : ASUS VP228 (1920x1080 Resolution) Another thing, I have ps2 keyboard, will it be ok? Please help. Thanks.
  3. Hi there, I’ve only tried on MSI GE60 2OE Core-i5-4200M version but I think it will work on GE70 2OE too as well because it has very similar hardware, I think the only difference is screen and body size. I’m a hackintosh newbie, so there are a lots more thing that potentially can be fixed I think. I still have to learn more. Normally, OS X Installer won’t install to disk that already have Windows installation, or disk without GPT Reserved partition size 200 mb at the start (Apple Disk Utility erase function will create GPT Reserved size 200 mb at the start of the disk), but I have some trick, and it require a spare external hard disk. My Specs : Core i5-4200M Intel HD4600 Nvidia GTX 765M 15.6” 1920x1080 HDD 1 TB 5400 RPM RAM 8 GB DDR3 1600 Realtek HD Audio ALC892 Realtek RTL8723AE Wifi + Bluetooth Killer E2200 Ethernet Download Files : https://www.mediafire.com/folder/48cufaxuxo34z/GE60_2OE_OS_X What Works : Intel HD Graphic 4600 with Full OpenGL Acceleration (QE/CI) Battery level monitoring Intel Speedstep Indeed, OS X doesn’t support showing real current CPU frequency, even on real mac (you can read more here https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4104026?tstart=0 ), all cpu speed reporting program will report at highest turbo boost frequency all the time, but when I use program like HWMonitor, it shows than when the system is not heavily loaded, CPU power usage is around 6 W, and temperature is not high. When the system is loaded, CPU power usage spikes up to 18-25 Watt, temperature rises up to 80 celcius, laptop fan spin faster, which indicates that Intel Speedstep is indeed working. Sleep (some plugged in usb device can cause the system not to go to sleep successfully) Sound (only speaker and built in mic using VoodooHDA) Screen brightness adjustment Elan multitouch pad Elan keyboarad Ethernet All USB Ports What doesn’t work yet: HDMI Out (don’t know how to fix) DVI Out Headphones, line-in microphone (fixing them is too hard for me) Card Reader NVIDIA GTX 765MIt is powered when in OS X, draining battery and generate some heat, and I have no idea how to power it down. NVIDIA Optimus graphic switching technology can’t be worked on OS X because on real Macs, Apple uses its own graphic switching implementation instead of NVIDIA Optimus. Wifi and BluetoothWell, there aren’t any driver for them. Right now I’m using a cheap TP-Link TL-WN723N USB Wifi adapter. Wifi and Bluetooth are on the same Realtek chip. Requirement : Windows Installed with EFI boot partition with GPT disk scheme. (not require if you are installing OS X as first OS on the disk) A spare external hard disk (need to be erased for OS X installation, and not needed if no windows installed on internal hard disk) A spare USB flash drive with at least 8 GB capacity. (need to be erased for OS X installer) OS X Machine or VMWare to prepare installer (if OS X on VMware had OpenGL Acceleration, I would not have tried to dual boot. Damn you Apple for not publicize document on how to make graphic driver, doubt it is the reason why OS X gaming performance is much slower than Windows’) Steps 1 : Preparation of OS X Installer Get OS X 10.9.1 app store installer. (torrent is your friend) Mount the dmg image of OS X installer. Do this on OS X VMware or real Mac of course. In mounted image, right click on “Mavericks.app” and choose “Show Contents”. Go to "Contents/Shared Support" and mount InstallESD.dmg Mount BaseSystem.dmg by typing the following in terminal: open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg In DiskUtility, go to the "OS X Base System", Restore it to your USB disk. Navigate to /System/Installation on your USB drive. Delete the “Packages” link, then copy the Packages folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location. Copy the kexts in “GE602OE_Kexts.zip” I provided to /System/Library/Extensions on your USB stick, but for safety, remove original kexts that has same name first because those kexts are folder not file. Delete these kexts to prevent hanging on installer boot screen AppleBluetoothMultitouch.kext IOBluetoothFamily.kext IOBluetoothHIDDriver.kext Install Clover bootloader I provided to the USB Drive. • Install for UEFI booting only • Themes->Choose one • Drivers64UEFI->OsxAptioFixDrv-64 11. Install Clover Configurator to use it for mounting newly clover-created EFI partition on USB Drive easily. 12. Copy and replace all files in CLOVER_GE602OEconfigured.zip to the EFI partition. You may still need clover configurator to manually config boot loader to suit your need, or try to fix problem later, also it is configured to boot without kernel cache, booting with kernel cache fails boot process a lot in my laptop, so I disabled it permanently, it will take a bit longer to boot os x. Also DSDT and SSDT are included in the zip file. UPDATE1: if you are using a different CPU than mine, you must remove SSDT.aml in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched ,and put NullCPUPowerManagement.kext into System/Library/Extension, now your OS X shouldn't be able to sleep and doesn't have intel speedstep working. I will teach you to fix it later. 13. Copy mach_kernel to the root of USB Drive partition “OS X Base System”. This is modified kernel to fix early reboot problem on intel haswell or core i gen 4 . Now we are ready to boot into OS X Installer Step 2 : My BIOS Setting (might not necessary) Step 3 : Installing OS X to external hard drive 1.Setup UEFI firmware to boot to OS X USB Installer. 2.When CLOVER bootloader shows up, boot to “OS X Base System” 3.Plug in external hard drive , then open Disk Utility and erase the external hard drive with GUID partition scheme. 4.Create a new partition with Mac OS Journaled file system. 5.Install OS X to that partition 6.Reboot to Windows and install program like MacDrive, Paragon HFS for Windows to access OS X partition. 7.Copy and replace mach_kernel to the root of the OS X drive, also the Kexts I provided to /System/Library/Extensions/ ,but for safety, remove original kexts that has same name first because those kexts are folder not file. UPDATE 1: Also, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext if you are not using i5-4200M like me. Step 4 : Finalizing installation 1.Now Boot to OS X on external hdd 2.Reinstall kexts I provided using Kext Wizard, this fixes kexts improper installed mesaages. 3.Install VoodooHDA-2.8.4.Lion.pkg 4.Optionally, I recommend FakeSMC + Plugins + HWMonitor found in Slytherin, it allows you to view hardware temp, CPU power usage, and seeing that CPU frequency is locked at turboboost speed, but indeed it is not. 5.To fix screen brightness adjustment, Copy org.rehabman.blinkscreen.plist to /Library/LaunchAgents Copy blink screen to /usr/bin. Type "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES" in terminal to show hidden files. UPDATE1 : 6.if you are using different cpu than mine, not i5-4200M, make SSDT yourself here http://rampagedev.wordpress.com/guides/make-your-own-ssdt/, and mount EFI partition on OSX USB Installer using clover configurator, and copy newly created SSDT to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched , finally delete NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in S/L/E (System/Library/Extensions) Step 5 : Moving OS X install to internal hard disk 1.Resize partition to have free space for your OS X partition, and format that free space to Unformatted. I recommend Minitool Partition Wizard. 2.Reopen explorer.exe with admin right, and run mountvol z: /s. This will mount EFI partition. 3.Open EFI drive and open EFI folder, copy CLOVER folder to EFI folder from CLOVER_GE602OEconfigured.zip, but DON’T REPLACE BOOT folder, or you will replace default EFI boot from Windows’ one to Clover. But if you did that, windows still boot, I have tried that, the UEFI firmware loads Windows boot loader from MICROSOFT folder instead of BOOT folder. 4.Boot to clover bootloader on usb flash drive, now you will see that there are two Clover Boot Option. Check them one by one and Add Clover as UEFI boot option for the internal hard disk (SATA not USB), see the picture Yay! You added clover boot loader entry to the UEFI firmware. 5.Now boot into OS X installer or OS X Base System, open Disk Utility and do a restore Source : Your installed OS X volume on external harddisk Destination : Your unformatted allocated space on internal hard disk All done, you will be able to boot OS X from internal hard disk now, I haven’t tried updating it to 10.9.2 and 10.9.3 yet, and I have read somewhere that there are some problems with NVIDIA Kexts for 10.9.2. If somebody manages to fix HDMI, DVI, Audio problems please tell me. Hmm, did some GPU benchmark. Windows won. I set nvidia optimus to use Intel GPU instead of mighty GTX 765M instead,
  4. Hello everybody, I just passed the full progress from a Windows 10 to a Dual Boot Hackintosh. After a few stupid mistakes it's working now absolutely fine. I have a Radeon 380X I set my iGPU as primary in BIOS. But I experience some issues with sleep mode. The thing is, in OSX it will just stop the video output, when pressing a key it will activate it again, but the PC itself just stays on as in normal mode (no affect). In Windows 10 there isn't the energy saver button in Start Menu. So there's no way of pressing it. By the way Shutdown and Restart work perfect. But, now it's getting interesting, when I boot my Windows through BIOS boot menu, this option is available (if I boot Windows through Clover it's not). I think it's (hopefully) not a big deal, as it's actually working in "pure Windows 10" which I think boots through legacy. I just read through all the "Sleep Issues" Thread and also used the search function but none of them fits to the issues I am experiencing. I was thinking about the "darkmode" bootflag or something with DSDT but as I'm absolutely new I'm really unsure what to do and don't want to destroy my actually running system. Thank you very much for your help! P.S. If any other informations are necessary I'm glad to provide them to you.
  5. Hi everyone. I need advise on how to get clover to dual boot Sierra and windows 10 on E6420. I have installed Sierra first and after that installed Windows 10 on the same HDD. The DIsk is GPT and BIOS is set as legacy. Installed clover on the EFI partition but its unable to boot to windows 10. It says BOOTMGR is missing whenever i select windows 10. I can confirm windows 10 is booting whenever i choose the windows 10 partition as active. To boot to Sierra i have to make the EFI partition as active. Thank you.
  6. i just finish install windows 10 in UEFI mode and now i also finished create el capitan bootable, but i'm stuck in here.. why ??
  7. https://vid.me/RAeO These are 2 different drives. One is purely Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 on the SSD, and the other is Windows 8.1 on a Hard Drive. Look at the 3 boot options there in Clover UEFI. Yes I installed Windows UEFI mode Also. SO heres my complaint. There are 3 extra options that don't work to boot into Windows. How Can I get rid of those? i just wanna keep the OS X Yosemite disk, the recovery partition for Yosemite and the last one on the right as that is the one that helps me boot into Windows. BTW can any one guide me through how to make a backup from my Hackintosh SSD to a hard drive partiton, on the same drive as windows? What I did to install windows on the HDD: Unplugged my SSD Plugged my HDD Put in the windows USB installer for Windows 8.1 clicked advanced setup, made sure drive was clean Let it install as usual Went through post install business such as updates and the drivers installation Plugged up my SSD for my Hackintosh, changed the boot to Timeout=2 in Clover Configurator Went to the clover bootloader screen and saw that.
  8. Hi All, I've currently got Yosemite chugging along nicely, and want to get Windows 7 installed on a separate drive for gaming. I've got this setup currently, but want to change my windows install from an HDD to an SSD. Firstly, my setup: First my hardware: Gigabyte Z-87N-WIFI Intel 45670K Asus GTX 760 Corsair 1600 2x4GB Corsair 430w CMX PSU BX100 250GB SSD - OS X install drive WD 1TB HDD - 700GB HFS+ partition, 300GB NTFS Windows install partition M4 Crucial 128GB SSD - Where I want to run Windows in the future. Fractal Node 304 Case OS X Version: 10.10.2 Firstly, in my current setup I have an odd issue - I can see the Windows install from the Clover bootloader screen, but when I select it I get a blinking black cursor. However, by exiting Clover my machine automatically defaults to the Windows partition and so loads normally. This has been fine up until now. The first thing I tried to do is clone the partition directly. Even though it is 300GB compared to the SSD's 128GB, only 70GB is in use. I used EaseUS to do this, and the process seemed to go fine, however I can't get it the drive to boot. The drive shows up in Clover, but neither selecting it or exiting clover gives the desired effect. Exiting gives me a 'Please insert bootable media' message, whereas selecting the drive gives the same flashing cursor as before. So my question is two fold: Firstly, is there anything else I can do to try and clone my existing windows install to the new drive? I have tried to shrink the partition in diskmgmt.msc, but can't get it down to 128GB (despite being only 70GB). Is there any other software which is worth looking at? Secondly, if I install a fresh copy of Windows & thusly, am I going to screw up my clover install at all? Steps: 1. Disconnect all drives apart from 128GB SSD 2. Disable UEFI in bios. 3. Boot Windows 7 via USB and install as normal to SSD. 4. Re-connect all drives, hopefully get everything working. Sorry for the massive post, i'd really value any advice.
  9. Hi, I have Yosemite running well with Clover bootloader. Clover is installed in an EFI partition. I see my Windows OS at the Clover start screen, but none of the Windows options boot into the Windows 8 OS. I get a black screen or a logo which just sits there. Windows 8 boots fine if I change the device boot order in bios. Looking at other posts, I'm guessing that this is because Windows is not installed in UEFI mode. I don't know enough about this to know if it is fixable in my case. The motherboard is quite old - see my sig. How should I go about enabling Windows booting with Clover? Here's the output from diskutil list: /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk0 1: Windows_NTFS Untitled 500.1 GB disk0s1 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *512.1 GB disk1 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Apple_HFS MacOS 511.3 GB disk1s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk1s3 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk2 1: Windows_NTFS Media 1.0 TB disk2s1 /dev/disk3 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *500.1 GB disk3 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk3s1 2: Apple_HFS MacBackup 499.8 GB disk3s2 disk0 is Windows 8, disk1 is Yosemite. I have also attached my Clover config.plist Many thanks for advice.
  10. Ciao a tutti, con piacere ritorno su questo fantastico forum. Vengo da un'esperienza molto positiva con un dual boot Snow Leopard + Windows 7 su stesso hd di ormai un po' di anni fa. Tenuto il tutto fino a poco tempo fa, quando ho deciso di formattare e aggiornarmi un po'. Per ora voglio mantenere Windows 7 e vorrei far un dual boot con Yosemite. Immagino che la procedura che seguii per il dual boot con SL non sia adatta anche a Yosemite, nonostante abbia la stessa configurazione del pc. Oppure sì? Soprattutto, posso fare questa cosa con la motherboard Asus P5Q Pro Turbo (ormai un p'o vecchiotta) e il resto dei componenti che possiedo? Ho letto la guida generale di installazione cioè questa http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298452-updateguida-installazione-os-x-1010-yosemite/ e mi pare tutto chiaro. Ora, come posso procedere per il dual boot Yosemite + Windows 7? Configurazione in firma. Grazie a tutti coloro che vorranno darmi una mano! Ale
  11. Ciao ragazzi, torno a scrivere in questo forum dopo un po' di tempo, e non avendo seguito da tempo le varie evoluzioni avvenute nell'hackintosh da quando installai il mio "hackbook pro" in dual boot con windows 7, questa volta ho bisogno di un aiuto... Purtroppo per problemi hardware ho perso tutti i dati dell'hard disk del mio portatile, e ho dovuto comprarne uno nuovo e dopo tanto, cercare di ricordarmi come fare partire in un'unica partizione Windows e OS X... Dopo vari tentativi con Chameleon, mavericks non riuscivo a farlo partire come una volta, così ho deciso di provare con Clover che mi era nuovo. Questa volta però ho deciso di mettere in dual boot con Mavericks e o Yosemite, Windows 8.1x64 al posto di Windows 7... Il problema è che Mavericks (così come Yosemite) si è avviato al primo colpo con Clover, ma windows 8.1 non ne vuole in alcun modo sapere di partire una volta selezionato al boot del portatile... L'istallazione l'ho dovuta fare con una chiavetta USB già preimpostata con clover dove era contenuto l'installer di Mav 10.9.5 in quanto avevo solo un vecchio muletto con windows per preparare la chiavetta... Primo tentativo: ho provato come facevo un tempo con Chameleon, ovvero, ho, con disk utility da chiavetta di boot, formattato l'hard disk in 2 partizioni GPT; nella prima ho lasciato spazio per mav e nella seconda per windows. Poi ho installato windows e poi mav con clover... Clover avviava Mav ma selezionando Windows 8.1 nessun caricamento veniva effettuato... Dopo numerosi tentativi cambiando anche i flag di boot con gparted e o fdisk, disperato ho formattato di nuovo tutto e non trovando nulla sul forum ho tentato con questa guida... anche se li è con windows 7. Praticamente la guida consiglia di installare entrambi i sistemi in MBR, e così ho fatto... Ho seguito la stessa cronologia della guida e all'avvio del bootloader selezionando Mav questi parte (rimasto stupito che parte con l'accellerazione grafica della mia geforce 9800m GTS), ma windows 8.1 come prima non parte... E' forse un problema di clover con Window 8.1 o c'è qualcosa che manca al mio bootloader per farlo partire? Son tre gg che smanetto, e sinceramente non vorrei reinstallare tutto da capo avendo già entrambi i sistemi installati e mav l'ho sto già utilizzando (anche se non funziona lo stop).... Vi prego ho bisogno di chiarimenti approfonditi in merito... Grazie a tutti gli amici del forum... PS: Il bios Phoenix revision 1.02.17 (ultimo disponibile per il mio portatile) è settato così: Sata Mode Selection [AHCI] Legacy OS Boot [Enabled]
  12. Hello people from OSx86 I have this computer wich have Windows 8.1 installed on it, and I want to dual boot with OS X Mavericks, here is the specs: Intel Core i5 2400 MB Asus P8H67 8GB RAM 320 HDD 1TB HDD GeForce GTX 460 SC 1GB I've been looking around YouTube, Google and many other places for tutorials for dual booting those operating systems, but all of them say that I must install first the OS X, then Windows on it. But I have a lot of files and settings on my Windows partition, and I don't want to lose them. Is there a way to install OS X on my PC without formatting my Windows?

    [RISOLTO] partizionamento disco

    Ciao ragazzi, dopo un pò di peregrinare qua e la, sono riuscito ad installare la retail di snow leopard... tuttavia mi si è presentato il seguente problema... Vorrei eseguire un duaL BOOT con win 7 ed avere anche una terza partizione dati sulla quale memorizzare tutti i documenti in modo tale da non dover portare tutto su disco esterno in caso di formattazione e reinstallazione... per quanto riguarda il dual boot, ho trovato moltissime guide, tuttavia quando vado ad installare win dopo il partizionamento fatto con snow leopard, all'atto della formattazione e successiva selezione, l'installer di win mi dice che non posso selezionare quella partizione poichè facente parte di una tabella di partizionamento guid... forse ho una versione di win che non va bene? come faccio a creare una terza partizione dati che sia visibile sia da snow che da win? vi ringrazio anticipatamente
  14. Hello all, I am getting prepared to build another hackintosh, and I have run into something that is puzzling me. I have 2 Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo external hard drives that I've used for years with my MacBook Pro. It is my intent to begin moving away from using my MacBook Pro whenever I finish my hackintosh. As the title of this thread suggests, I am building a dual boot system with Win7 and OS X. I want to be able to use my external hard drives seamlessly between the two operating systems, but I'm having trouble finding a way that I can plug my drives into when the system is finally built(or perhaps I'm having trouble understanding the concept in its entirety). If you were not already aware, the My Book Thunderbolt Duo's I/O consists only of 2 thunderbolt ports on the rear for connection, no USB. And even if it did have USB ports, I wouldn't be able to daisy chain the two drives, as I do now, which is at the moment also daisy chained in with the monitor I'm using. So, is there anything I can buy(like a pci card or hub) that will allow me to plug my thunderbolt hard drives into my computer, that will give me full thunderbolt functionality between both operation systems? Once I get my hackintosh built, I'll be plugging the monitor into the gfx card(obviously), so thunderbolt storage is the main functionality desired. But if there is something out there that supports thunderbolt video and storage in a hackintosh like mine, don't neglect to let me know. Here is my pcpartpicker list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/R2j2nn I am building a custom water loop for this hackintosh, so certain otherwise essential components may be left blank in this list. Thanks is advance!
  15. I used to have El Capitan and Windows 8 working on two separate drives perfectly for the most part and have had dual boot working great for years. For some reason after some time I started having strange issues while booting into either OS or having slow loadup speeds when booting onto mac side. So I decided while I had some free time I was going to do a full clean wipe of both the windows and mac ssd and start fresh. To summarize my installation process. Made a windows 10 (rufus GPT) and sierra usb install on two usb drives. Booted into sierra installer, wiped both ssd's with disk utility as Mac os Journaled and GUID, and then installed sierra. I get sierra working fine using Clover UEFI bootloader and I can boot from it without the need for the usb installer (aka clover is working fine) so I begin the windows install. I unplug all drives except the windows ssd and install windows onto that. I make sure I can boot into windows with no issues as well. Now here is where the problem occurs. I plug my drives back in, and my 3tb storage hdd is recognized just fine in windows and clover, however in clover I am not longer able to see my sierra ssd, but I can see the recovery partition for it. So I use the sierra install usb and check in disk utility and it seems like somehow after the windows install, my Sierra partition is being corrupted/wiped because under the ssd name the partition no longer says "Macintosh HD" but is being replaced with just "--" So somehow after the Windows install, the Sierra partition which is on a completely different ssd is being wiped out. I have tried this process 3+ times and the same thing keeps happening. I know I am not wiping the partition because the ssd is unplugged during the windows install. Only when I plug it back in and then try t boot from it or the sierra install usb do I realize that the partition is gone. So I am not sure what in the world could cause this but any input or ideas would be super appreciated because this has already taken up close to 24 hours of time spread across a few days trying to resolve and I am out of ideas and extremely stress because of this. Thank you! Relevant Specs: MoBo: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD4H on version F9 Two Samsung 840 EVO SSD's UPDATE: Plot twist... So since I already had windows installed and my sierra partition got removed somehow, I decided to just keep windows on their and install sierra afterwards. Once I did that, the same thing that was happening to sierra was happening to windows. And I cant boot to it via clover or any other method. So i checked and the only difference is the partition name still showed up in Disk Utility but it said that only 300mb of it was being used (it should be gigs of data since the OS was installed on it). So now Sierra works great but windows is borked. For some reason whenever I install one os, the other is getting destroyed and I have absolutely no idea why.
  16. Olá amigos, sou novo no fórum e gostaria de saber algumas dicas básicas para começar o processo de Dual Boot entre WIN 10 e El Capitan. Primeiro, minhas configurações: 8GB RAM (2x4GB) Placa-mãe: P8 H77 M-LE Intel Core I7 3770 CPU 3.4Ghz VGA R9 280X AMD HD 1TB SSD 240GB Em 2012, eu tinha conseguido fazer um dual boot funcionar entre WIN 7 + Mountain Lion no mesmo HD. Me lembro que foi bem difícil conseguir, já que estava dando vários erros. Atualmente não lembro quase de nada do que eu tinha feito na época para funcionar, apenas que usei um Niresh ML. Agora quero voltar a fazer, pois já não tenho mais o setup Win 7 + ML. Porém, mudei uma peça do meu PC. Antes tinha conseguido com uma VGA Nvidia GTX 580 sem problemas de compatibilidade. Atualmente tenho uma VGA AMD R9 280X. Não sei se vou enfrentar muitos problemas com essa placa, gostaria que os mais experientes pudessem me ajudar nisso. Já tenho o Win 10 e alguns poucos programas instalado no SSD, com vários arquivos de música e jogos no HD de 1TB. Nesse caso, como eu faria para instalar o El Capitan? Eu quero instala-lo no HD e deixar o SSD com o windows mesmo, mas sem mexer em nada na partição que deixo meus arquivos de música e alguns jogos do HD. Para fazer esse processo, tenho de ter um pendrive de 8GB? Me lembro que em 2012 fiz com um DVD mesmo. Qual seria a melhor versão do El Capitan para usar? Ainda existem aqueles Niresh? iAtkos?

    Ciao a tutti, sto cercando una guida aggiornata per il dual boot di El Capitan + Windows 10 SULLO STESSO HD. Ho trovato solo guide datate, se qualcuno potesse darmi qualche link di una guida recente mi farebbe un grande piacere Grazie in anticipo a tutti!
  18. Buenas a todo el mundo. Llevo ya varias semanas queriendo darle provecho a una máquina AMD con procesador ATHLON II X2 270, placa madre ASROCK N68C-S UCC y tarjeta gráfica RADEON HD 6700. Tengo windows 10 ya instalado y me gustaría instalar la versión de mac más moderna posible, con dual boot en el mismo disco. Esta placa no admite ahci, sólo raid (que es lo que tengo elegido) e ide. No veo manuales que digan como hacerlo en un sólo disco duro sin ahci. Lo poco que he encontrado en español no me ha orientado, y tampoco manejo muy bien el inglés. Encontré en inglés el caso de una muchacha que se bajó una sparseimage de mavericks, la restauró en otro disco, modificó/añadió algunos archivos y le fue bien, pero si pudiera ser, me gustaría instalar en el mismo disco. Por cierto, ¿se puede instalar mac os en un disco IDE?, ¿sabéis cual es la versión más moderna que soporta IDE en caso afirmativo?. Probé a instalar hackintosh ##### el capitán, pero creo recordar que aunque el gestor de arranque funcionaba, a la hora de elegir para que instalara el sistema, ahí se quedaba, o directamente el pen drive no arrancaba, ya no me acuerdo. Hoy mismo he probado a instalar con niresh 10.10 (por que según parece ser, hay varias ventajas en instalar con una distro de estas, como por ejemplo el ahorrarse editar o cambiar kexts, mayor compatibilidad con AMD, etc), pero tampoco arranca el pen drive. En la bios tengo que arranque desde el pen drive, lo he repasado 2 veces y cargué los valores óptimos. Parece ser que hay maneras de cambiar algunas extensiones para que no importe que no se tenga ahci, pero no puedo ver los archivos del pen drive de niresh 10.10 desde finder. No he probado por cierto a ver el contenido desde la terminal. Me gustaría saber si se puede instalar yosemite en esta máquina, o incluso el capitán. Si no, pues saber si me queréis ayudar cual es la versión más reciente que puedo instalar en esta máquina, para instalarlo junto a windows 10 en el mismo disco. Con el MBR también hay problema, pero decían q el niresh lo solucionaba sin tener q andar cambiando los archivos (por cierto, no me importa el curro duro, si hay q ir por el camino difícil pues bien, pero es que me he pegao un hartón de buscar y nada soluciona mi "necesidad"). No estoy muy puesto en esto del hackintosh y encima creo que estoy en un berenjenal bueno. No sé si al pen que tengo de yosemite-zone (niresh 10.10) le tendría que meter un gestor de arranque (glober o no sé, por que he visto tantas cosas, q en vez de resolver dudas estoy más confundido), o grabar un gestor de arranque en otro pen drive… Tengo un disco IDE de 20 GB, por si ese puede instalar en IDE, que justo para el sistema vale, aunque no es muy apropiado. Si no hay más remedio estaría dispuesto a comprar un disco sata. En fin. La verdad me gustaría darle provecho a esta máquina, que tengo un macbook pro de finales del 2008, no quiero darle mucha caña ya. En la medida de lo posible no quiero convertir películas o jugar con mi MBP, además para hacer pruebas entre ordenadores en plan servidores que monte, compartir carpetas, etc… para hacer pruebas de estudio o trabajo me vendría muy bien. Por favor, si no os es molestia u os quita mucho tiempo, ¿me podríais ayudar?. Gracias. ¿Sería necesario ver el chipset que tiene la placa?
  19. Update: Despite 99% of the research I did suggesting the cause was a corrupt boot sector/MBR, the issue appears to be isolated to my Clover boot loader because upon attempting to boot with a Chimera USB Win 7 booted perfectly fine. Background: I have a machine that was previously dual booting legacy El Capitan and Windows 7 off of the same drive on a non-UEFI board. Issue: When I try to boot the Win 7 entry through Clover I get a "Disk Read Error". Possible causes: The El Capitan install is a recent fresh replacement of the Mavericks install. I will try to retrace my steps that may have caused this but the troubleshooting took place about a month ago and was a lengthy process. 1. If I recall correctly, upon first installing the new El Capitan, Clover was not loading off the drive and instead I was getting a Windows boot menu. To remedy this I think I had to switch the Boot0 to AF or SS. After that I can say with certainty the system was booting both OSs fine. 2. Then there was an issue at some point where the EFI was improperly formatted as HFSJ so I had to set it back to FAT32 and I think at this point the dual booting was still in tact. 3. At a later point I tried to format the EFI again in order to troubleshoot another issue but accidentally improperly formatted it. In order to fix that I found a post on Stack Exchange that detailed out to swap the EFI out from starting to ending byte with the EFI from my boot USB. 4. I reset my BIOS to factory defaults. These are the possible things that may have caused this issue but I'm not sure. Questions: • Is my boot partition damaged? • Is there BIOS or Clover setting causing this issue? • Is there a possible way to examine the boot partition or see a detailed log that may hint at what is causing the "Disk Read Error"? • Is there any possible way I can repair this with out having to install both OSs from scratch?
  20. Hello I'm trying to switch from chameleon as boot loader to clover, but somehow it won't work. I'm using a Windows 8/Mavericks dual boot system and I'm trying to boot into Windows 8 with Clover, but to no avail. I see the Windows 8 logo for a millisecond, then the hackintosh just reboots. I can boot into Mavericks, though. Mavericks and Windows 8 are on two different SSDs. Windows is installed in UEFI-mode. What to do? Any help is greatly appreciated Greetz N
  21. Hello, I have a Asus Z87-Pro MB (so with a UEFI bios), and I want to create a dual-boot hackintosh. I already have Windows 8.1 installed on a SSD, that I don't want to loose. My plan is to install 10.9 on a seperate SSD, and then dual-boot it (with Clover I suppose, since it is UEFI). So is there a way to install 10.9 on this seperate SSD without losing my existing W8.1 installation, and create a dual-boot? Maybe my question is answered somewhere, but I can't seem to find a suitable answer. Thank you! Robbe

I already created a thread on http://osx86.net/topic/21153-wich-method-of-setting-up-a-hackintosh-with-dual-boot-fits-to-my-hardware/page-2 Only the second page is worth reading. I'd like to hear more opinions about my issue. What do you recommend me to do? Changing the hack method? Re-install everything or do you even have a boot flag that might work? Any help is very much appreciated! Even If I could boot again to my mac OS, I would still have no internet available. I own all driver corresponding installation CD's but they are not supported by mac. I also understand german.
  23. Hey guys so I partitionedmy hard drive into two sections, and first installed windows 7 on one, then snow leopard on the other. Updated it to 10.6, used the ###### hack via usb to install lion and successfully installed lion on the second partition. My problem is is that when I installed snow leopard, a chameleon bootloader was installed, so after I installed lion, i couldn't use that bootloader, it would boot, and then kernel panic. The only way i could boot into lion would be to use the ###### usb drive. Once i got into lion, i installed the chimera bootloader from ###### for lion, and when I restart my computer I have the bootloader with both os's, and when i click my hackintosh parition, the apple logo flashes, and then the computer restarts. I tried installing mac os x all over again and windows, and the same thing happens, i'm going crazy. I read some where that I should install chameleon onto the hackintosh partition with lion again. I found a chameleon.pkg installer that would do it for me, which would then allow me to dual boot windows 7 and lion, but i'm afraid of messing it up again. Can someone help me? What do I do? I'm going crazyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    Dual Boot Yosemite x Windows 8.1 (2 HDDs)

    Boa tarde. Minha Build contém 2 hds - 1 Windows 8.1 e o outro com Yosemite. Após fazer toda a instalação, ele apenas entra direto no windows. Para entrar no Yosemite, preciso ir pelo boot selection da BIOS. Qual a maneira mais correta de fazer esse dual boot? Agradeço pela ajuda, Gustavo
