    Problemas com Geforce 9800GTX+

    Oi galera, utilizo esta placa de video (nvidia Geforce 9800 GTX+) com o Snow e com o Lion ha 1 ano e, ha 6 meses aproximadamente, meu Hackintosh tem travado com os 2 sistemas operacionais. Descricao do travamento: ao abrir algum browser e navegar na internet, ao assistir algum filme e ao abrir o Finder o PC trava (tela congelada e mouse continua mexendo normal). Se eu insisto em clicar em algo sem esperar o travamento passar (apos uns 10 segundos) a tela fica 80% preta, com a imagem da tela piscando apenas encima (uns 20% do monitor). E ai ja era, preciso resetar o PC no botao do gabinete. Achei no inicio que era meu HD. Mas iniciei os 2 sistemas com GraphicsEnabler desabilitado e nao trava mais... apenas desabilitando o GraphicsEnabler fica normal, mas obviamente nao tem funcionado video... youtube, etc. Alguem tem ideia do que pode ser? Sera minha placa indo pro saco ou o Chameleon esta dando algum problema apos alguma atualizacao? Obs importante: tambem tenho o Windows 7 no mesmo PC em outra HD. Ele funciona normal, nao da nenhum problema. Inclusive utilizei aqueles programas de “forçar” a placa pelo Windows pra ver se dava algum pau, mas nada. Esta perfeita... Agradeco alguma ajuda...
  2. Hi Guys. So im running Mountain Lion 10.8.2, with Chameleon Bootloader. Everything was great, until I got new hardware. I switched from: Mainboard: Asrock z68 GPU: Geforce 560ti to Mainboard: Asrock z77 Fatal1ty GPU: Geforce 660ti And now I cant boot my system anymore Im getting this error when booting in Verbose mode. Can anyone help me out?
  3. Hello, guys. I’m writing to You as a more experienced and knowledgeable. And I ask for Your help in solving the following question: It’s need to build a efficient hackintosh mod to work with graphics (2D, 3D, graphic renders and so on). Budgets: 6000$ Specs: Motherboard - ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS CPUs – 2xXeon E5-2630 or 2xXeon E5-2670 GPUs – 2 way SLI Nvidia GTX Titan (In the future it’s planned to expand to 3 way SLI) Questions: Is this motherboard good for hackintosh? Or there are a better motherboards? What can you advise to buy? There is a official CUDA GTX Titan drivers for Mac OS. How do you think if 2 way SLI or 3 way SLI works at hakintosh? Is it better to buy the native Nvidia GPU for best compatibility with Mac OS? Or no difference? For example, can I buy the overlock GPU Titan other manufacturers (ASUS, EVGA and so on)? Should I buy RAM more than 1600 Mhz bacause the motherboard supports up to 2133 Mhz (non-registered memory) and up to 1866 Mhz (registered memory)? Whether does Mac OS support 16 Gb one module RAM? (the motherboard supports up to 256 Gb registered memory). Please, help me. Thanks for your time and attention!

    Bluetooth & WiFi n00b

    Hi All, New to the forum and hackintoshing. I have built TonyMacX's mini deluxe with the GA-Z87N-WIFI mobo and am running Mavericks/10.9.4. WiFi apparently is a no go and it turns out the bluetooth has serious issues. I had it working at one point, but now it's gone AWOL and from all I have read it doesn't look like anyone has got it going properly. My situation: I don't really *need* WiFi, it would be a nice extra. I need bluetooth only because I have a wireless mouse I rather like (in fact I had to borrow this wired mouse )! Can someone introduce me to this world of WiFi & BT on hackintosh? I found Toleda's guide and read a few other threads. Is there a plug and play option available to me? I want to minimise any additional software fixes to avoid agony when I inevitably update the OS. It seems like the only plug and play for BT is a dongle, such as GMYLE – is that right? I am very fond of the little aerial that came with my mobo and I had hoped to simply replace the card on the mobo, which I think is a mini-PCIe? Are there any options better than the one's Toleda mentions? Probably really obvious stuff, but I'd love some help from someone more experienced. Thanks for reading.

    Are all HP Mini 1000s the same?

    Are all HP Mini 1000s on the market the same? Or are there differences? There's a Mini 1000 on eBay with the following details: Brand HP Model Mini 210-1000 CTO PC MPN VV074AV I'm just wondering if it's the type of Mini 1000 that'll run OSX. Is there any documentation about this anywhere? Bests _-(p0q)-_
  6. Hi colleagues Need your help. Is it possible at all to make fully working hackintosh machine? I tried to make something fast, so I took gigabyte z270n wifi mb with 7700 cpu and apple native wifi/bt and gt1030 video (the only card that fits my case and supports 4k@60Hz) but still cannot make sleep working. Have a lot of issues like sometimes it becomes slow and unresponsive, and sometimes WindowServer crashes and so on. I tried some dsdts that have been made for me here (thank you for your help, guys!) but with no success. I also tried to make a custom patches myself with the same result tried different bios settings, clover settings, kernel parameters, but all of this didn't no help. So, I suppose it's probably some hw issue and my hw is just incompatible. My question is - could somebody share the fully working hardware configuration and does such exists at all? With working sleep and without these annoying crashes, based on some modern fast chipsets like z270/370 and 7/8 series CPU? Maybe even hibernate - is it possible to have a working hibernate with clover/10.13? Or at least sleep? Thank you!
  7. I already own an iMac, but I recently got an used Powermac G5 (The previous to the Mac Pro). And I thought… Why not install a Hackintosh inside? So here I am, wanting your advice for which components to use, I've seen way a lot, of projects whit this case, so I know what I want. I don't need a powerful computer as it will be plugged to a TV as a media center (VGA-HDMI needed), also running as a server and many other things which don't need a lot of power. About the motherboard, better if it is not very big as I want to maintain the rear part containing all the connectors (linked to the Mobo with cables) maintaining the original looking. Also it has to be a cheap computer as I don't plan a lot of use, but it is a fun project to accomplish and the case is awesome So please tell me which components should I put into this awesome computer
  8. Hi there, I recenly installed L2 on my PC and I faced the following problem Unsupported chip ID=0x7 REVISION=0x23 My motherboard model is MSI H55M-P31 with Intel Core i3 530 with integrated graphics. I guess it's graphics problem but I'm not sure. I couldn't find information by googling. Maybe anyone knows what it is? Edit: I also installed grub afterwards, but before I did it, I was stuck at splash screen with some corrupted jazzy music (booted with Chimera). Cheers.
  9. So after searching around on & off for 2 days with hardly any results, I thought it would be really convenient to have a list of laptop PCIe half mini cards that would be Lion-compatible. I currently have a thinkpad W520 and looking to swap the one in there (I think it's a realtek). From the looks of this: http://www.notebookreview.com/shared/picture.asp?f=58155 it doesn't look like it would take any other style of card. Any suggestions or successful attempts, please leave em here!

    what ktext for nvidia gforce 7050 (64mb onborad) ?

    Hello! My motherboard have onboard video (Nvidia 7050 64mb), exist any driver for this ? I can change my resolution to 1024 from 1280 ? tanks for help!
  11. I`m using a haswell CPU on z87 motherboard with a GTX1060.(hd4600 deact.) SMBIOS iMac14,2 Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61 10.13 (17A405) with web driver 378. My English is not very good, After I read these links I'm still very confused. https://sourceforge.net/p/nvidiagraphicsfixup/svn/HEAD/tree/trunk/FAQ.md https://github.com/vit9696/Shiki/blob/master/Manual/FAQ.en.md https://github.com/vit9696/Shiki/issues/5 Seems like shiki.kext should be use after hardware video decoding works? But in the nvidiagraphicsfixup faq it says:To get hardware video decoding you are likely to need shiki. I try to install lilu.kext and nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext but doesn`t work. when i running ioreg | grep IMEI and ioreg -l | grep platform-id there is no output. What kext do I need?(nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext imac.kext shiki.kext ...) It is necessary to enable the builtin Intel GPU hd4600? I will appreciate for your reply.

  17. My system get unresponsive and display in blinking with black page after 4/5 mints, while mouse and keyboard is still working. What should I do? Please Help me.
  18. Ciao a tutti, è un pò di tempo che non mi faccio vivo su questo forum anche se capito spesso per leggere. Chiedo il vostro aiuto perchè sto preparando un Hackintosh ad utilizzo musica, quindi che presenti buone caratteristiche di gestione di grossi volumi di dati (sicuramente sotto i 16Gb non si andrà nella scelta). La mia domanda era quale scheda madre consigliate nella quale ci si debba mettere poco mano sopra in termini di kext e compagnia bella, in più il massimo sarebbe se fosse dotata di porte FireWire (il mio amico utilizza un mixer con questa connessione) e che anche in questo caso presenti pochi problemi nel riconoscere le periferiche attaccate. Se avete anche qualche topic da consigliare in lettura sono ben accetti suggerimenti, grazie mille per qualsiasi risposta
  19. Hi guys. I've bought BCM94331CSAX with PCIeX1 adapter for this combo being the chipest and for reasons I don't really need fastest WiFi possible. Heck my router is still 54g Anyway I was lucky and card and adaptor seems to came flawless. Since I am using MacPro3,1 SMBIOS I was not getting Handoff and few other OOB and had to apply CAT which enabled everything. Then I've found that BT signal level is really low. BT speaker i have is dropping sound like crazy if put more then two meters from antenna. While researching a bit I have found that middle connector on the card is for BT. Also I've found that turning WiFi on card off is greatly improving RSSI of Bluetooth connection – my BT speaker can be as far as 5-6 meteres after that. Also turning off router (with WiFI in 2.4GHz) do the same — improves RSS of BT. So my question is can you guys with those cards in topic attest to my finding. Or correct them because now I wonder if CD (iMac) versions of the cards are better in regards of simultanious work of BT and WiFi since those cards are actually bigger themselves. Thank you P.S. Screenshots shows how turning WiFI off improves BT connection
  20. Hola gente, Quiero crear un hackintosh nuevo, y tengo esta configuración pensada, me podeis dar vuestra opinion? Socket 2011v3 Intel CORE i7 5820K (3,3 Ghz - 3,6 Ghz) Motherboard: GA-X99-UD4 Tarjeta gràfica: Geforce GTX960 OC WF2 4Gb DDR5 RAM: HyperX Savage HX424C14SBK2/32 - Memoria RAM DDR4 de 32 GB (2400 MHz DDR4 CL14 DIMM, Kit (2x16 GB) XMP) Samsung SM951 256GB - Disco duro sólido (256 GB, M.2, 2150 MB/s, 0,05W, 8 cm, 2,2 cm) Saludos y muchas gracias Si no es en este post, dónde puedo preguntar?
  21. I'm currently on a $1,000 budget. I got a build recommendation for that price on reddit, here it is: CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card (I already own one of these, so this would be my second, so I can run SLI) Case: Corsair 500R White ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 620W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply I am looking into purchasing this computer to both play and develop games. I plan on making games for Windows, Android, iOS, and Macintosh platforms. I already own a May 2009 Macbook, but I'm afraid it wouldn't get the job done for me when it comes to making games, as I'm more of a desktop person. Because of that, I decided I would look into splitting Mac OS X and Windows 7 across my computer. Anyways, my questions are, -Will this hardware work with building a Macintosh? (I already know I can get just one of my 660 TIs working, and that SLI will not work with mac.) -In opinion, do you think that Mac would be a good OS to do these things: Texturing Video Editing Music Making -If the CPU did work with Mac, would I be able to use it if it was overclocked? Thank you.

    Salve, non voglio spaventare nessuno mà.... Che ne pensate di questa notizia? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-02-01/apple-developing-new-mac-chip-in-test-of-intel-independence Ciao.
  23. I dont know if to build with mini itx or matx. Which box to choose? Mini itx (Prodigy, phentom) matx (Define mini, DS Cube or Prodigy M) (These ones also work like with mini itx) Is DS Cube compatible with hackintosh? I dont see on tonymac website. I want a small case with good efficient cooling and silent. My possible hardware is; Intel Core i5-4570 Gigabyte GA-H87M-D3H // H97N-WIFI Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 PRO Rev.2 Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600 8gb Samsung Evo 250 Corsair CS 550 or RM 650 WN881ND // Nothing If everything works fine, I like to buy for future extensions +GTX 770 +8GB +HDD 3.5 +SSD 250 (Windows exclusive installation) I suposse, Im forced to buy Corsair RM 650 or some higher W? any advice?
  24. Hi All, I'm currently experimenting with some hardware I have to hand just to broaden my knowledge working with Hackintosh installation etc. This is a pretty ambiguous question but could anybody recommend a set of hardware that would work out of the box for a budget Mountain Lion build but would also work with some of the later OSX versions. This system would not be for gaming or video editing but mainly design work using Illustrator, Photoshop etc. I guess the main components are Motherboard, CPU, Memory and Discrete GFX as I'm assuming these would be most likely problem areas? I've currently considered the following: Gigabyte Z97 DH3 Motherboard Intel i5 4460 nVidia 740GT Crucial Ballistix 8gb (2 x 4gb kit) Samsung 840 EVO 250gb Corsair System Builder CX500 Would the above hardware work with little if no addition kext work arounds etc. One of my biggest stumbling blocks to date has been getting audio working. Thanks in advance!
  25. I want to put this USB 3 card in my Mac Pro. Orico PFU3-4P. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1DS0NZ0600&nm_mc=BAC-Criteo&cm_mmc=BAC-Criteo-_-Add-On+Cards-_-Orico-_-9SIA1DS0NZ0600 It requires a 4 pin molex power supply. All my hard drive and optical bays are full, so I want to split power off the GPU 6-pin plug. But all the adapters I'm finding online have Molex MALE. Where can I find one that goes to Molex female to plug into this card?
