  1. Since I installed High Sierra, the system hangs for about 5 seconds. This problem drive me crazy! I can't understand how fix it. How to solve it? Thanks in advance. freeze_5_seconds.mp4.zip
  2. Hello there everyone. I recently put together a CL hackintosh for a somebody else and it mostly works fine; however, he's been having a problem that I (so far) haven't been able to replicate. He sometimes gets odd beachballs that end up freezing the computer into needing a cold shutdown and boot; which usually in turn freeze halfway through the boot process only for a reboot to work. Recently he mentioned this happened after several hours of sleep (left the computer sleeping during the night), so I'll try reproducing it later. However, I'm trying to figure out what the actual problem might be. I've got a theory: Wake-up issues with the NVME controller. Why? I've been experiencing similar issues on my real MBP (2011) because the secondary HD ribbon cable has been coming loose. Of course, since it's just a secondary drive, it's a large inconvenience but it doesn't completely shut the computer down. It would certainly be different if this was happening with the primary drive, though. What do people think about this? It's the first time I've built a hackintosh with modern hardware (my own is Ivy Bridge) and I'd never tried NVME before, so there's been plenty of trial and error involved in this build. Stats: CPU: i7-8700 MB: Gigabyte Z370-HD3P RAM: 32 GB DDR4 Video: Asus RX580 Drives: Samsung 940 EVO, 2x 1TB HDDs. Wifi/BT: BCM94331 Other than this issue, pretty much everything seems to be working fine on 10.13.2 (with the exception of the CPU saying Unknown on "About this Mac" but I guess that's cosmetic and expected)
  3. My system specs: GA-H55M-USB3 rev. 1.0 | i5 760 | Sapphire Radeon R7 240 Motherboard is NOT UEFI. Actually I've installed Yosemite 10.10.5 on a SATA HDD (NO SSD) without major issues. SATA controller is an Intel 5 series in AHCI mode. I'm trying to update to High Sierra 10.13.2, downloaded from AppStore. When I boot from USB pendrive (using Clover r4334, config.plist attached), and select macOS installation (installation files resides in Yosemite HDD), installation fails with those errors: HID: shim legacy 2 USB pendrive is inserted in a USB2.0 port. I've tried to insert it in all available USB ports but error is still present. Kexts used (all in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other): AppleALC.kext (used in Yosemite to have working audio with ALC889) FakeSMC.kext GenericUSBXHCI.kext (for USB3.0, NEC/Renesas chip) Lilu.kext (dependency of AppleALC) RealtekRTL8111.kext (Ethernet) USBInjectAll.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext (mouse) Downloaded from Rehabman bitbucket repositories, latest version where applicable or from author's repository. Any clues? config.plist.zip
  4. as the title indicates, i'm having a lot of trouble getting high sierra working on my pc i created a 10.13 installer usb, booted into its installer through clover installed and even problemlessly transferred my files from my 10.12 install over to 10.13, but yet i can't boot into it in the attached image you can see where precisely it locks up (it might be important to note that DSMOS never arrives during the boot sequence (or at least the part of the boot sequence that actually happens before it does locks up)) one thing i find weird is the fact that my 10.12 install (which is on another partition of the same drive that 10.13 is installed to) still boots with functioning sound despite me having completely removed applealc.kext from my clover install my config.plist is here: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1RjfaLZ9zqT-N12kZXbX26xvC0QzMSBSZ(putting it on google drive because this website apparently doesnt want me to upload config.plist files, god knows why) i'm running clover 4297 my specs: intel core i7 3770 gigabyte geforce gtx 760 16gb ram 256gb sandisk ssd 2tb seagate sshd 750gb western digital 1tb western digital i'm pretty much at my wit's end here so i'd be glad if anyone knew what the hell is going on
  5. Hi guys. My first post here. I have trouble getting my Intel HD 5500 QE/CI to work. I've changed my DVMT setting to 64 and 96MB, but every time I try to boot, the graphics injection works fine but it freezes/hangs after that. If I delete AppleIntelBDWGraphics.kext it does boot and shows me correct VRAM info and brightness control. The laptop in question is an HP 250 G5 with an i3 5005U, HD 5500 and 8GB DDR3 RAM. I have tried all ig-platform-id's and Clover patches. Does this sound like a hardware/incompatibility issue? If you need more info let me know. Thanks in advance.
  6. Just about any animation in Safari causes the graphics engine to hang, sometimes it recovers and others I have to force shutdown. It happens when I move a window around or when I click on a Facebook notification that opens in Safari. Sometimes even opening Safari causes the hang. The "Genie" animation causes it the most but even the "Scale" animation causes it as well. The zip file attached contains the message I get in console, my DSDT, SMBIOS, IOReg, and Enoch config file. I have an Inspiron N5110, Sandy Bridge, Core i3-2350m with HD3000, El Capitan 10.11, Enoch boot loader. MacLaggin MacBook Pro.zip
  7. Been having some trouble getting 10.11 to completely start up. @Shaneee has been working with me over here valiantly for the last several days, but we've really hit a roadblock. He suggested that some folks here, particularly @Spakk, might chime in and know what's going on. Essentially we've gotten to the point where the system starts and we're at the login screen, but then it goes black and is hung. `sshd` is non-responsive and the system will not respond whatsoever. Here is a video to further illustrate. We've tried various kernels that @Shaneee's provided that he thought would work out, but no luck. The issues started out primarily as an Nvidia issue, but after it's bios was flashed and so forth, we've been able to get it to the point noted there. I'd be happy to provide any details you'd like as I know that the other thread is quite populated at the moment by our efforts and might be hard to sift through.
  8. Hello everybody, I have a Toshiba Satellite C660 with this hardware: - CPU Intel i5 2410M - Chipset: HM65 - NVIDIA GeForce 315M I've tried to install OS X 10.11 with no luck. I've prepared everything following the guide and using Clover Legacy as bootloader. Whenever I try to boot from USB with "-v" it hangs with an underscore for a while after I select the USB to boot from. After about 1 minute it starts loading stuff but it won't go after that. It keeps displaying something new occasionally but after 10 minutes it hangs on "Waiting for DSMOS...". It seems something related with FakeSMC.kext but it's already on "EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other". I don't know what to do. I hope someone will be wanting to help me
  9. Hi everyone, My Hackintosh, with the specs outlined below, was running great until it started hanging on boot this morning when I turned it on. A picture with the last lines of the verbose boot is attached. When I try to boot into recovery mode, it panics and restarts after a while of waiting. The graphics, WiFi, everything was working well and not presenting issue previously. The nv_disable=1 flag doesn't get it to boot. It's set as Mac Pro 3,1 and the config.plist file hasn't been changed since it worked. NVIDIA web drivers are installed (graphics card was working perfectly) and for once this doesn't seem to be the issue. It hangs in the same place if I boot in safe mode as well. AWDL appears to be causing the trouble... When I tried to boot into the recovery mode in safe mode it panicked, restarted, and I got some more. I apologize that the photos uploaded upside-down. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

  10. Hello, I have a problem getting the installer to load I have done the install method (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289062-109-mavericks-simple-vanilla-hackintosh-install-guide/) Short desc: the bootloader is Enoch-chameleon r2748, on GPT/HFS+, for legacy bios The issue is when I boot the install usb drive, it starts in verbose, then a gray screen with the rainbow-mouse shows up, and hangs on there. @native resolution. The installation screen doesn't show up I have searched on google before posting I have previously used this method with Mountain Lion 10.8.5 and it worked fine, I think there's somethin wrong with the loading process of it: when i did the same on ML, it worked My Specz: GA z77m D3H motherboard (F14 rom Bios&Uefi modes) Intel i7-2600 SandyBridge (no oc, all settings stock) AMD R7-265 (Sapphire Dual-X) 8GB ram (2x4 1333) Display Dell 22' on main gpu DVI out HD Wd CV green 1Tb/ SSD transcend 64GB Detailed desc. My motherboard series is known to work OOTB, and it does on Yosemite, better on ML. The usb will boot even without kext and other mods, Are added fakesmc, dsdt, acpi patch,libc,libc++ from Enoch. I used cameleon instead of clover (will try when installed on HD) because it crashes on my Virtualbox VM (osx 10.11), also crash creating uefi partitions. Bios settings seems to be correct.. Boot args: >/Kernel (to load original kernel (10.10, also 10.11 works) from usb root/kernel) >/Kernel -F -x -v dart=0 acpi=0 pcirootuid=1 graphicsenabler=no (dont help )
  11. I made my USB boot drive using #####, but when I select it as my boot device, and try to boot, it says: boot0: GPT boot0: test boot0: test boot0: done And it just stops there, with a blinking cursor. I can't get to the installation screen. Does anyone know what problem I'm having, and how I can fix it? Thanks
  12. so i have clover installed and windows 8 installed as uefi. when i boot windows through the bios it works fine but when i boot windows efi through clover it goes to the windows boot logo spins a few times then my monitor just turns off. the computer is still on and the fans are still running so i cant tell if windows is still running just without the graphics card. when i start windows in safemode through clover though it boots just fine. anyone else have this issue or know how to solve it? I have a gtx770 and z87x-ud3h Thanks
  13. My installation works but after a couple of reboots, it will display a spinning beach ball AFTER logging in. Note that it's able to boot up right up to the login screen. But the system will just hang with a spinning beach ball after typing the password. Anyone else encounter such a problem?
  14. Right, so, Hi guys, apologies if this subject/topic has been posted elsewhere in this forum, I had a look and couldn't find anything and am getting quite frustrated. So a while ago, I came across the subject of Hackintosh, and since I have been craving Mac for ages now (but have zero money to buy a mac) I jumped in enthusiastically. Here's the software I used: - [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] Legacy (burned to CD), - Torrented iATKOS (burned to DVD RW) of OS X 10.6.7 Snow Leopard, - Windows 7 (where I did everything beforehand). After burning both programs to their respective discs I restarted my computer into BIOS and changed all IDE to ACHI, and my power to S3. I also changed my boot order to CD-Rom then HDD. After another restart I booted into [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], replaced the disc with the iATKOS Snow Leopard disc and ran the OS X Setup. All was good, and after getting to thesetup screen I selected English, partitioned my 2TB drive into three partitions (666 GB each) and installed OS X onto one of them. I then walked away while it was installing, after turning the monitor off. I came back fifteen minutes later and the screen was black, apart from a green chameleon at the top of the screen. Assuming it had restarted and failed, I restarted back into [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and launched the new Snow Leopard entry (as tonymacx86's tutorial said there would be). It came up with a gray screen and black apple logo with the spinning wheel beneath it, as there should be. A minute and a half into this the screen flickered black, and the computer restarted. I booted back into OS X and it did the same thing, except instead of restarting it threw up a kernel panic error. I can't get past this screen,and I can still access Windows, which is what I'm typing this on. Is there something I'm missing? HELP PLEASE. My setup is: - Gigabyte P55-UD3R mobo - 8 GB RAM (4 corsair somethingarather, 4 corsair vengeance; two different types) - 1GB Nvidia GeForce 460 SE - Intel Core i5 760 @ 2.80Ghz - Fatal1ty 750 watt PSU - DVD Drive - 2TB Hard Drive - 64GB SSD (Win 7 Pro install disc) I apologise if this is a noob question, and would really appreciate all feedback. Thanks so much in advance
  15. I have recently installed OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 on my computer, and everything works great while I'm INSIDE the OS using it. But when it comes to booting up, the screen keeps getting stuck at the grey apple logo screen, with the loading circle infinitely looping until I reboot, only to get the same results over and over. Using verbose mode revealed that the boot process gets stuck at the line "SMC : Successfully Initialized" as shown in the screenshot followed by one or two lines of uninterpretable garbage, until I reboot. So far I have tried infinite combinations of kernel flags, but all give the same results (except -x, which boots up OS X but then there's no graphics kext enabled). I tried changing the system definition from "Mac pro 6,1" to 5,1 and even 3,1. But still the same results. Also as an exception, the OS boots successfully if I use "UseKernelCache=No" flag, but then the OS behaves very abnormally and becomes extremely slow, so I avoid that. Even tried deleting and rebuilding kernel cache but problem still persists. Sometimes with some real good luck it boots succesfully, but that's pretty rare and obviously unreliable. Can anybody please help me on this one? This is real confusing.

I do not have an AHCI option in my BIOS. Does anybody have any experience with my laptop? I don't mind if I can't use Mavericks, any OSX version will be plenty for me.

I'm a student still, and while I will try my best to test all suggestions promptly schoolwork does come first, so apologies in advance if I don't check up in a while!
  17. Hey guys, I recently remade my USB drive with myHack, replaced the kernel with an Ivy-E compatible one, and ran myFix to ensure everything was in order, and after entering -v npci=0x2000 cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No, I get a white screen with a cursor. Here are my specs: Intel Core i7 4960x 64gb corsair vengeance RAM Asus Rampage IV Extreme 3 GTX 780s (2 disabled by way of PCI switches on the board) 512GB SSD 2 2tb Seagate Barracuda HDDs Everyone with the same motherboard as me says to use -v npci=0x2000 cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No, and i still get a white screen, even in safe mode. It doesn't make any sense to me. Any ideas?
  18. Any suggestions? I have just upgraded my MacBook Pro: installed 8GB memory (4GBx2 is max RAM for this MacBook Pro) and a new 1TB internal hard drive. It took me a day to install Mac OS X on the new internal drive, restore the Time Machine backup and check things out. The 4GB RAM was adequate for my normal use, but 8GB is very nice to have, and I need it for a special QA project, which requires me to run Windows on this Mac. The new 1TB hard drive is just over half full now, and 7200 RPM with 16GB cache vs. 5400 RPM with 8GB cache seems peppier too. However, there may now be an intermittent problem. My Mac had not crashed in more than one year, and I often run it for a few weeks between rebooting. For now, I cannot trust the Mac, and I am saving my work every 5 or 10 minutes. Since installing the new hard drive and new DRAM, it has crashed twice in two days. One "crash" was just a hang. The other "crash" caused a very strange display on the external monitor. Rebooting took longer than usual, maybe 3 minutes vs. 1 minute, after each "crash." Here is the screen shot after crash #1 (hang): So, I ran the stand-alone (single user mode) memory test (memtest) overnight (5 passes takes about 10 hours with 8GB) and it did not report any errors. I have 12 more days to return the memory or exchange it at Fry's Electronics locally. If it crashes again within a few days I will take the new DRAM back and try another brand. My MacBook Pro (mid-2009, 15", ) is now running OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) and want to upgrade to Mavericks (10.9) as soon as the hardware is solid for at least a few days. Also planning to install VMWare and Windows 7 for a special project as soon as the hardware is stable. For now, I plan to open the case, re-seat the RAM and run MEMTEST every night in standalone (single-user) mode. Any other suggestions? How to troubleshoot this and find out what is causing rare, random, intermittent crashes?

  19. Installation hang at 16%

    Hello together, i've got the following problem: I want to install OSX Mountain Lion to an HP nx6125 Notebook. It has an AMD Turion x64 CPU and 1GB of Ram. I am using the AMD Kernel for ML, and my CPU gets detected correctly. 1. My IDE HardDrive isn't detected, this is not that worse, cause I want to install it to an USB 3.0 Stick. 2. The installation freezes at 16%. My Bootflags are: :amd_kernel -v GraphicsEnabler=No Does anybody know, howto fix these Problems? Regards Sa_2307 P.S. I'm using an USB Stick, using the UniBea Bootloader P.S.S. My installation package of the extensions is corrupt, so installing it without extensions worked.
  20. I've installed and configured 10.8.4 retail on my Asus U36SD laptop. Everything works fine and stable except one thing. When plugging or unplugging charger system freezes, and needs to be restarted by pressing power button. This is so strange, cause it happens after 1 hour or more of system running. Before that time i can plug/uplug charger any time without an issue. Tried many battery kexts: AppleSmartBatteryManager, VoodooBattery. Second one works longer but its still very annoying. Im using UEFI boot with Clover and DSDT extracted from my BIOS. Does anyone knowes what could it be?
  21. Hi, How do i check what is preventing sleep by terminal? It has to be a process, DSDT and kexts are fine, fresh install. Had this problem before, edited DSDT until i went insane, was the Boom application Simply forgot how to check it, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  22. I am new to this forum so be kind Before I begin, these are my specs: AMD Athlon II x4 ASRock N68C-S UCC mobo 8gb DDR3 Hyper X RAM Samsung Spinpoint 1tb HDD Ok so I have successfully installed Leopard on my build using iDeneb but I now want to install Snow Leopard using Hazard. This has worked before (a while ago) but I only had 1 hard drive at the time so I decided to scrap OSX and just use Windows. But now I have 2 hard drives and I want to install OSX again. The problem occurs after I have loaded Hazard with BootCD. When Hazards starts it opens a dark grey screen (no apple logo) and hangs their with the multicoloured mouse wheel loader thing spinning, I have left it for a good 10 minutes but nothing has happened? Suggestions please! Thankyou!
  23. Youtube/Safari

    Well, you can read the specs from my sig. I have no problems, batching videos for 3 days, downloading 24/7 at 5MB/s, not a problem. The only problem i have, when i open a playlist in youtube, and switch to another tab, after one video ends, i need to visit the tab again, to get the following video to load. This happens to every video playlist. Tell me what you need, will provide it. Crashplayer and Safari are up-to-date. Problem does not exist in Firefox.
