I am currently going through http://bit.ly/UWBkGP [[GUIDE] A fast and easy way to install Mountain Lion] and not sure if I can use this method because of the support of Gigabyte Motherboard. If their's a way to support my HP motherboard then please let me know.
  3. Hey all, I built my first Hackintosh back in 2012 and its been runner amazing. Thank you again for the awesome guides and forums that made it all possible. I have however hit the end of this builds software limits. I am still running 10.8.2 mountain lion on the machine. I would like to update to Sierra and want to make sure I am clear on the procedures. Now that it seems like everything is could based and no longer get physical versions of OS. currently i am backing up the system using and external drive and "carbon copy cloner" as shown here: http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/06/backup-your-hackintosh-with-carbon-copy.html My question is should i follow the set via the App store updates, Wipe the system and start over or is there a better way to achieve running Sierra on my machine? Here are my build specs: Processor name: Intel Core i7 Processor Speed: 3.50 GHZ # of cores: 4 memory: 32gb Boot rom version: insanelymac.com Graphics Card: Nivda GeForce GTX 670 System Version: OSX 10.8.2 (12c60) i have also attached screen shots of the spec to further help: Thank you for taking the time to help me out with my build. look forward to getting this bad boy updated. Mahalo, -VM
  4. This guide is for OS X 10.6.4 through to 10.7.0 Introduction: I'm a long time lurker on these forums and over the years have installed osx on lots of pc's all good fun and thought i'd give a little back, There are some poeple who have written good guides and how-to's on EFI strings method for nVidia video card recongnition in OSX, most of them don't cover all the bases and usually focus on a single card or specific setup. My aim in this guide is to be broad in demonstrating installation of all nVidia cards with the EFI string method and also who how to do it with multi card setups too, I aim to show all the necessary commands in the terminal in order for a complete noob to be able to understand and confidently follow along. Please note this guide is only for the EFI string preparation and installation into the apple.com.Boot.plist file. Any thing to do with customisation of KEXTS is not part of this guide, so be sure to check the usual places for custom KEXTs if needed, Some good places to start: www.osx86.net - formerly www.kexts.com wiki.osx86project.org www.insanelymac.com www.projectosx.com and most importantly www.google.com Files needed: gfxutil in.plist -modded but sourced from "agrafuese" from their insanelymac forum guide. textwrangler - google it. IMPORTANT, READ INSTRUCTIONS FROM START TO FINISH BEFORE BEGINNING part one: getting card details use a program called textwrangler, google it, it's an excellent text editor with some features that will make following this guide alot easier for yourself I promise you, Creat a text file on your desktop called whatever, i'll call mine info.txt now copy the corresponding string between the < > below of the Video RAM size your video card has labelled as "video ram": the digit after 0x are multiples of 256, the ones after 0x0 are multiples of 16. <0x08000000> - 128Mb <0x10000000> - 256Mb <0x14000000> - 320Mb <0x20000000> - 512Mb <0x28000000> - 640Mb <0x30000000> - 768Mb <0x38000000> - 896Mb <0x50000000> - 1280Mb <0x60000000> - 1536Mb next choose the type of outputs on the particular card labelled as "connectors": the connector layout: Mainboard side of card / SLI connector side of card <BAAAAAAAAwAMAAAAAAAABwAAAAA=> - DVI-I / DVI-I <BAAAAAAAAQAGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA=> - VGA / DVI-I <BAAAAAAAAwAEAAAAAAAABwAAAAA=> - DVI-I / VGA now complete part one for your second card if you are going with 2 cards, and remember to keep the details for each card clearly labelled for that card. Part two: getting the card location if your going to use 2 cards, you must do this step twice, starting with your primary card inserted into your PC without the secondary card in the system, then repeat the process with the secondary card in the secondary slot it will occupy with the primary card removed. so in short, get first card location, swap out the card then get the secondary card location. this is how: you need root access, go here to learn how to get it: support.apple.com/kb/ht1528 with your primary or only card installed in the slot you intend to use it in, extract gfxutil to your desktop, open terminal and type: su [hit enter] [enter your root password then hit enter] cd \Users\[your username]\Desktop\ [hit enter] ./gfxutil -f display [hit enter] OK once you enter that last line you should get an outpu on screen like: PciRoot(0x4)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) label it as "location" copy it by dragin over with your mouse and right click, copy, then paste into you text file "info.txt" you recorded you video card details to, if using 2 cards make sure it's labelled for the card currently in your system then repeat with your second card fitted to it's slot again, only if you going to use 2 cards. Your almost done, your info.txt should read something like this: card a video ram:0x20000000 connectors:BAAAAAAAAwAMAAAAAAAABwAAAAA= location:PciRoot(0x4)/Pci(6x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) card b (only if using 2 cards) video ram:0x20000000 connectors:BAAAAAAAAwAMAAAAAAAABwAAAAA= location:PciRoot(0x4)/Pci(0x6,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) part three: modding the in.plist this is the part where you cop over your collected data to the template in.plist file. open it with textwrangler. locate the text "LOCATION" and paste your location info in it's place. locate the text "VRAMINFO" and paste your video ram info in it's place. locate the text "CONNECTORS" and paste your connectors info in it's place. locate the text "VIDEOCARDNAME" and paste your video card name in it's place. <key>model</key> <string>NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 - 896MB</string> for example. now if your only using one video card you can delete everything after "</dict>" up until the second occurrence of </dict>so there will be a total of 2 x </dict> at the end of the file like this: </dict> </dict> </plist> now procede to part four. If your using 2 video cards, do the same again for card b locate the text "LOCATIONB" and paste your location info in it's place. locate the text "VRAMINFOB" and paste your video ram info in it's place. locate the text "CONNECTORSB" and paste your connectors info in it's place. locate the text "VIDEOCARDNAMEB" and paste your video card name in it's place. <key>model</key> <string>NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT- 512MB</string> for example. part four: this part is where you convert your in.plist to an EFI string. save your info.txt and in.plist. Open terminal again with root access and type: cd /Users/[your username]/Desktop/ ./gfxutil -i xml -o hex ./in.plist ./out.hex ok, now open the out.hex file with textedit, hit Command + A to select all and Command + C to copy to your clipboard. go back to terminal and type: nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist this opens up the nano text editor, use the arrow keys to go </dict> and enter a line above it indented just like the others above that, and enter: <key>device-properties</key> <string>"PASTE EFI STRING HERE"</string> so when your done it will look like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs$ <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1920x1200x32</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>device-properties</key> <string>ce0700000100000002000000e20300001500000002010c00d041030a04</string> </plist> The EFI string you paste may look wierd but as long as it has no leading or trailing spaces between <string>and</string> you all good. now to save the file, you press Control + X, then hit Y to confirm overwrite of old file. Your done. Shutdown the PC, install all video cards into their slots and Boot the PC, and it should work, if not, try NVEnabler.kext for single cards, or research the forums and OSX HCL pages on the OSX86 Wiki links above. This is AFAIK the only way to get 2 differing NVIDIA cards to work in the same OSX system. NVIDIA EFI Strings - HOWTO.zip

    snow leopard on an amd

    i happen to have an amd setup i would like to be able to install snow leopard on. i have looked around on youtube and found a few videos that show how to make the created installer work as if it was installing on a mac but they never end up showing how to make the installer for it. i also have looked for iso immages of the osx86 only to come up with several versions of the installer. also any copies i ever did try it gives you some kernal choices as to which kernal(s) to use and its confusing as to know which one(s) to use and make it work. i happen to have a gigabyte ga-ma69vm-s2 with an amd athlon 64 x2 4000+ running at 2.10ghz and 4gb of ram and an ati radeon 3600 hd. i want to be able to install the os without having issues and being able to make everything work.
