  1. Ciao a tutti, sono felicemente riuscito a installare Lion sul mio Optiplex 330. Funziona tutto tranne la scheda audio interna ma non importa perché vorrei installare una USB esterna: una Yamaha AG03. Dalle istruzioni questa dovrebbe essere installata su Lion senza driver e riconosciuta subito (http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/global/en/products/mixers/ag/manual/mac/index_en.jsp). Su un altro hackintosh sempre con Lion viene riconoscita perfettamente. Il sistema la vede, nel System Report, correttamente collegata all'USB ma da Audio Midi Setup mi dice "NO DEVICES FOUND". Temo che mi manchi qualche parte software per far riconoscere la scheda esterna. Ho installato i VoodooHDA ma mi hanno mandato in crash il sistema quindi li ho rimossi. Avete consigli? Grazie mille Retroman Newbie
  2. Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum, I'm really searching for some help with my "project" and hope some of you can help me out with this one! It's all coming down to a not starting "Finder" The full story, I bought a Mac Pro 1.1 (2006) a few day's ago. All stock, dual Intel Xeon 3Ghz, 5GB Ram and the stock video card (256MB). (Lion freshley installed) I wanted to upgrade to OSX El Capitain, and after a lot of research and a lot... yes a lot of trouble in making it all work I finally got it. I've thrown in a Geforce GTX 760 2GB Jetstream... couldn't wait to get cables for powering it, so I frankensteind it all with a second PSU. Installed Lion on a Samsung 850 EVO, and then followd a tutorial on how to install el capitain using Piker's boot. After 12 hours non stop messin around it worked, only after some time the mac froze and rebooted. I noticed that maby Google Chrome caused this to happen, and when using Safari it would work without any problem. I even can play 4K flawless. But still after some time it would crash, I monitored the CPU and Ram Usage, but there wasn't anything crazy happening at those things. .. didn't really got the time to instal other apps. Then I found out Finder wasn't responding. It kept on crashing. I tried a lot of things... deleting the plist files, resetting PRAM, VRAM, Savebooting, deleting cache, Disk repair (Disk Aid)... nothing worked. Is this maby a problem with the bootloader (Pike)? I hope someone can help me out! Thanks in advance, Greetings from Holland
  3. I'm trying to install Mac OS X Lion onto a kinda old PC, the specs are: AMD Athlon X2 4450e NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE 3GB RAM I've successfully installed Snow Leopard on it, and then I tried OS X Lion which gives me "[ PCI configuration begin ]" and then it will give me "console 1024 x 768 @0xe0000000" if I add pci=off, I've tried Yosemite and Mavericks (and they give me the same results) but I'm trying to stay away from them as they probably don't support my graphics card, and weirdly, I've tried Mountain Lion which boots into the installer no problem but it doesn't show my hard drive, so i tried to install it onto a flash drive (which takes ages!) but then at the last moment it tells me that it was unsuccessful, so I try to boot into Mountain Lion and I get the same errors (except I haven't tried pci=off, but I really don't want to try again unless it's really needed.) Is there anything I can do or am I just stuck with Snow Leopard?
  4. I recently received an HP Pavilion A6400f with the ASUS IPIBL-LB mobo. My brother keeps telling me to get a Mac so I thought I'd try to make a hackintosh using OSx Lion since both are from the same era. So far, all I've found are tutorials that all say "first get such and such from a previous install of OSx". If I had a previous install or access to a Mac I wouldn't need to try making a hackintosh. So, any suggestions or guidance? Hopefully, once I get OSx on, I'll be able to install Linux Mint and multiboot.

  5. Nuova vita al portatile

    Ciao a tutti ragazzie/e. Vorrei un vostro consiglio sul mio portatile in firma. Ho 4Gb di RAM in un banco solo, vorrei portarli a 8Gb. Sui vari siti di e-commerce ho visto che un banco solo da 4Gb originale costa di più che due banchi da 4Gb di altre marche. Voi cosa consigliate? Sono compatibili? Per adesso ho su mountain lion ma vorrei istallare el capitan. Avrò problemi? Grazie mille.
  6. Hi there I have some old kit here just sat here doing nothing I was wondering what kind osx i could put onto it ? Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 socket 775 ( OLD ) -- 3.0GH'z Chipset Q45\Q43 south bridge if important is ICH10 3/4GB Ram ( I use the other stick sometimes ) was hoping maybe Lion or Mountain lion but I doubt it on C2D.. also what Bios settings would I need on this machine ? ( re cap what osx and what settings in the bios ) if you can. thank you.
  7. Hello All, I was given an Asus Eeepc 901 netbook recently. So i thought why not install lion on it! I know the processor is N270 which is 32 bit and lion don't support 32 bit but i remember back in 2012, I installed lion on my X60s which featured a 32 bit processor but its quite fast. So i have installed lion on its 8gb ssd. Every apps works! By its really slow. Because firstly the laptop bios have no achi option, secondly the ssd writing and reading speed according to: http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/SpeedTest/8580/ASUS-PHISON-SSDis very slow, thirdly if I'm not wrong this ssd is a PATA meaning IDE kind. So i flashed a custom bios made by a Japanese guy who enabled the achi option in the bios. Now its slightly faster. Im thinking of upgrading the currently ssd to msata. But i seen a lot of people saying its not possible without some mod as the asus uses something called flash_con. Despite the msata and mini PCI-E look resembles but its not the same due to the pin layout or something like that. After several hours of researching, I saw on Ebay where a guy is selling an adaptor: http://www.ebay.com/itm/mini-pci-e-msata-SSD-to-SATA-Mini-PCIE-adapter-card-/221818510797 I presume the adaptor is to convert msata to mini pci-e. The seller claimed that:" The speed and other properties is not changed,only form conversion interface. " So I wonder if i buy this and a msata, will this adaptor change the msata sata to IDE? Reason is because i need it to be in SATA mode, as I want to enable trim function in Mac OS X. Thanks Hi, any Mod who reading this, maybe you want to move this thread to the hardware components IDE/SATA section? Im so sorry, as i didn't saw the IDE/SATA section before posting this. Thank you very much

  9. I know there is no QE/CI currently available, but, just i want to know, which OS X hackintosh version runs little smooth in GMA x4500? I KNOW ITS INSANE QUESTION BUT PLEASE TELL SOMEONE! MOBO : Asrock g41m-vs3-r2.0 RAM : 2GB DDR3 CPU : DUAL CPU 2.7ghz And yeah! please also tell me how to install that!
  10. Hey folks, a few years ago i installed the iAtkos L2 on a super micro x7dal dual xeon e5420 ( non- hyper threaded) ; everything worked fine. I recently upgraded hardware to a super micro x8dti-ln4 with dual x5670's ( hyper threading capable cpu). Since i had a bunch of stuff installed and configured for the original hardware, I moved the HD as is to the "new" hardware and it booted just fine; however, the mac designation is still "mac pro early 2008" and only 12 cores (2 x 6 core cpus) showing up. The "new" cpus are hyperthread capable and the macosx should show 24 cores under the cpu usage window. My question is how do i update the SMBios (or which ever) to: 1) enable hyperthreading of the new xeon X5670's 2) show that this is a macpro 4,1 or 5,1 late 2010 thanks in advance
  11. I have a AMD Athlon based computer and I want to install Mac OS X Lion but if that would be impossible I'm happy with a Snow Leopard insall. Specs of the PC : CPU : AMD Athlon 64 x2 5400+ (Stock, 2.8GHz but sometimes OC to 3.0/3.2GHz but i don't want a OC config on a Mac Installation) MOBO : MSI MS-7309 v1.0 GPU : ATI Radeon HD 3400 Series 512MB Normal Clock ( No Overclock) RAM : 4 GB DDR2 HDD : 500 GB SATA 2 HardDrive, but only 164.6 GB free for Mac OS X install because I have to keep the rest of the files and projects. * This version of BIOS I have doesn't support USB Boot but I've already did the AHCI setting.* Now I have only this computer ( running Windows 8.1 Pro ) and a Asus Laptop ( running Windows 7, uncompatible with Mac OS X ) because I forgot my new MBP in England at a friend.
  12. Hi guys, I've got a big problem. I installed lion with chameleon, and went good. But when I reboot and I choose to start with the hdd, it freezes on the first screen , the logo screen. What should I do? The terminal doesn't recognize nor the Logitech keyboard (works with a USB adapter for wireless) nor another USB keyboard(don't know the brand, but isn't wireless) Any advice? Thanks in advance!
  13. Hello! I succesfully installed iAtkosL2 (Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2) on My Asus EEEBox NE785H (With an Intel Core 2 Duo and a NVidia ION). So, if I could remember well i had to use an "atom_kernel" to make it boot, but my impression is that the system is quite slow (and sometimes at boot i get kernel panic, 2 times of 10). I think there is a kernel problem, or something is not optimized. But the most problem is the video card. This PC has an NVidia ION, which is recognized by default Nvidia Kexts by "Unknown Nvidia Card with 512MB memory" (See screenshot attached). I have QE/CI working, but when i go to play a 720p vid it lags. If I connect a second monitor it doesn't work too, and system needs reboot (black screen). Sorry for my bad english, hope you understand my problem. Thank you in advance!

  15. I know this all mainly about OSx86. But I wonder if you could point me in the right direction... I have a Mac that came with Mavericks preinstalled. However, I want to use Lion instead. Is there a custom build I could use on it?
  16. Mountain Lion no laptop

    Olá galera ligada no Insanelymac Por favor, me ajudem neste problema que está acontecendo quando eu tento dar boot na instalação do Mac OS X Mountain Lion no meu notebook Estou dando boot através do próprio HD da máquina. Fiz uma partição de 10GiB no meu HD pra servir de fonte de instalação. Também estou usando uma DISTRO do Niresh: USB Mountain Lion. Estou pensando que o problema está no kext IOHDIXController, pois é dele que começa o erro. Valeuuu, abraço!
  17. nVidia GeForce 8400GS - weird errors.

    Hi, I have an nVidia Geforce 8400GS in my Hackintosh. It works perfectly OOB (resolution, QE, CI) on 10.6, 10.6.3, and even up to 10.6.7 iirc. However on updating to 10.6.8 there is no display output when it should be on the desktop. Also I would really like to run lion (10.7.5) but this is what I get when i run the installer (with graphicsenabler=Yes) If I run it with GraphicsEnabler=No then there is no output when it should be on the installer The other specs are: ECS P4M900T-M2 with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz 2GB RAM 160GB Hard Drive Mouse Keyboard (fake but works great) 'Apple' USB Ethernet Adapter USB Sound Card (works oob) Thanks P.S. I know the specs are pretty bad, I just want to do this for a test. P.P.S. i should have said, I installed with myHack.

  19. Hey guys, I have a Fujitsu T4200 laptop running iATKOS 10.7.5. Everything works except WiFi. I have bought a Raspberry Pi and installed Samba on it in order to share my 1TB hard drive over the network and access it over Ethernet. Now the problem is that the share isn't recognized in the Finder. It just doesn't pop up in the "Shares" section of the Finder's sidebar. I also tried to connect to it by pressing "Command+K" to bring up the "Connect to Server" menu, I enter smb:// (with being the IP address of the RasPi). Then I press "Connect" and it will try to connect forever. WIndows recognizes the share just fine and I have read/write access and everything. What's the problem here? Thank you. Btw I also can't connect to the RasPi over SSH in Terminal. I've dowloaded a SSH but it's not working, too. Could the two problems be connected? Thanks in advance!
  20. REQ: GMA950 ID 27ae

    Καλησπέρα παιδιά και απο'δω. Ανέβασα ενα Request εδω: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298812-req-gma950-id-27ae/ Αν μπορεί κάποιος να με βοηθήσει σας παρακαλώ. Μου έδωσαν ένα παλιό HP 530, και το έφτιαξα. Μέχρι στιγμής έχει γίνει αλλαγή σε δίσκο απο 120 σε 320άρι, 3GB Ram απο 1, και αλλαγή επεξεργαστή απο Dual Core σε Core 2 Duo. Επίσης whitelist το Bios για να ξεκλειδώσω το ασύρματο και του έβαλα μια Broadcom 4311 που δουλεύει OOB. Για να μπώ στο θέμα. Έβαλα το iATKos S3 (10.6.3) και έπαιξε μια χαρά, αλλά δεν με καλύπτει το snow leopard, μιας που δεν έχει full screen και άλλα καλούδια που έχει το Lion. Αυτός ήταν ο λόγος που του έκανα και τις αναβαθμίσεις ώστε να μπορεί να πάρει το Lion. Το πρόβλημα είναι με την κάρτα γραφικών. Το ID είναι 27ae και ότι και αν έχω δοκιμάσει δεν ξεκινάει το QE/CI. Το μόνο που κατάφερα είναι να παίξει η ανάλυση με τα kexts του Snow leopard απο το 10.6.8 αλλά μέχρι εκεί. Έχω δοκιμάσει Kexts απο Lion DP 1, kexts απο το osx86, frame buffer, EFI String, να βάλω το id της κάρτας σε όλα τα προαναφερθένα στα plist τους, και δοκιμές με παραλλαγές των boot flags όπως -F, arch=i386, GraphicsEnabler=YES και NO αλλά δεν. Το μόνο που δεν έχω δοκιμάσει γιατί δεν ξέρω πώς, είναι να πειράξω το DSDT που ίσως να κρύβει και το μυστικό. Αν κάποιος έχει μια ιδέα πως μπορεί να παίξει το μηχάνημα ας βοηθήσει γιατί πραγματικά με κούρασε εδώ και βδομάδες που το παλεύω. Ευχαριστώ προκαταβολικά!
  21. REQ: GMA950 ID 27ae

    Hello, I decided to make a request to anyone that can help since I got nothing else to try. I bought an HP 530, that has GMA950 ID 27ae. So far, after weeks of reading, downloading kexts, patching and reinstalling Lion, I only managed to get full resolution using snow leopard's 10.6.8 kexts, but no QE/CI. Tried EFI string, replacing frame buffer, editing Lion DP 1 kexts by adding my id and installing them to my system, tried with boot flags, arch=i386, GraphicsEnabler=yes and no etc etc but nothing worked. So please please! if somebody has any idea of how to enable QE/CI on this ID I'd be really really grateful. Rest specs of the laptop, are 3GB ram instead of 1GB, 320GB hdd instead of 120, and Core 2 Duo @ 2.00Ghz instead of Dual Core @ 1.8Ghz.

  23. Hey guys im trying install os x on my laptop but when i boot i got this screen
  24. Hi, Am looking for some help really.... I have a working install of Snow Leopard on my AMD 1090T X6, M4N98TD Evo board with 4GB of usable RAM. However it is only 32bit and I have recently upgraded my Graphics Card from a GTX470 to a GTX660 after spilling water in my case!! I managed to get the GTX470 to work properly by editing the Graphics Management Kext and by installing CUDA and Nvidia Drivers. however all my attempts with the GTX660 have failed. I can get 1920x1080x32@60 but it has a black border, when I try to install programmes, it says that I need more VRAM, system profiler says I have 3MB of VRAM, on a 2GB card!! I also have a downloaded copy of the LION app, when I run it, it says you need INTEL, etc. System profiler sees my CPU as a 6 core XEON, but the app doesn't!! So - any way to get the GTX 660 to work or any way to get the LION app to install on this system??? Please help? Many Thanks
