  1. ***See Second Post Below*** The latest! (01.14.13) I'm going to start scheduled updates to the guide/Gatsby Pack. If I fix something, or someone else fixes something, I'll update everything here on the following Friday. So like this Friday I'll update the Gatsby m6-1045dx pack for three-finger swipe actions, and I can probably add the BIOS update, in case HP's website goes down or whatever. Good News, Everyone (12.28.12) USB 3.0 ports work, at least with the latest BIOS update, but they only work with 3.0 devices. I was only recently able to test this. Furthermore, a lot of 2.0 devices work with the 3.0 ports, like wireless mouse dongles. Things that don't work include flash drives, iPhones, Android phones, pretty much anything that transfers files. Sound is now fully-functional (see the post in this thread about sound). Still on Tap (to fix) Intel Turbo/SpeedStep (I know it should be working, but I have a feeling it isn't) USB 2.0 functionality in the 3.0 ports Mapping for action keys with the latest VoodooPS2.kext that enabled three-finger swiping and brightness adjustment Sound sometimes cuts out, like with YouTube videos and Spotify... I haven't had an issue since updating to 10.8.2, at least I don't think..so we'll see. Sleep (supports the theory that SpeedStep and TurboBoost aren't working) SD Card reader I'm probably not going to bother with HDMI audio, VGA out, or getting ethernet to work post boot, they're nominal issues IMO.
  2. - Where to start?: A nice guide on how to create your own USB installer is provided here: http://www.insanelym...-for-beginners/ I do recommend using this method: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302220-pandoras-box-20-candidate-3-roll-out/ It's self-explanatory. If you only run Windows at the moment, install OS X into a virtual machine, and follow the guide from there. - What will not work?: - Wifi, you will have to replace the card, i switched mine with an Atheros 9285. Note: After replacing, your Bluetooth will not work anymore, so an USB Wifi device would be the better option perhaps. - Card reader, no solution for this at the moment. - Nvidia GT 650M, the card has been completely disabled in the DSDT. If this is not done it will make your system freeze on startup if the NVDA* and GeForce* kexts are not removed. Also, the system will overheat if it is not disabled. Since you can not use the card, it is best to disable it. - Wake from sleep, the display does not wake up. This has been fixed in the new DSDT attached to this post. - HDMI out. Requires patching of the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri to enable AAPL,ig-platform-id 0x03. On every update of OS X you will need to patch this file again before rebooting. Not patching or editing the DSDT before reboot will result in a black screen. ​New patch enables HDMI audio out and corrects the vram to 512mb. - What will partially work?: - Touchpad, recognized as trackpad, only basic input, no gestures like 2 finger scrolling. - Audio, LineIn and the subwoofer will not work. - FN keys, for Audio and Wifi FN keys for brightness have been fixed. - USB 3.0, depends if you want compatibility with USB 2.0 flash drives. Both devices work. Booting with GenericUSBXHCI, have not tested without it. - Lan, only with specific settings. Official Realtek driver. Realtek Driver. - So...What does work?: - Speedstep - Sleep, patched IntelCPUPowerManagement or an unlocked bios. - Intel HD4000, DSDT injection, patched AGPM. (Need to explore) - Audio, line out, speakers, HDMI and internal mic, DSDT injection and a patched AppleHDA. - Battery status, ACPIBatteryManager and DSDT edit. Corrections have been made in the DSDT attached. - Webcam - Brightness control, in system preferences. - 1. Pre-Installation. - Download the EFI15022015.zip from this post and place it on your desktop. When you opened Pandora's Box, select bootloader > Clover UEFI, click start. I had some issues with Pandora installing the bootloader. - When Pandora is done download Clover configurator, select mount EFI, on the bottom right corner, Mount EFI partition, and select the USB s1 (disk2s1 in most cases). - Open folder, it will be empty, just copy the EFI folder to that partition. - 2. Installation. Boot from the USB installer, it will boot in verbose mode, if any error occurs, you can take a photo of it and attach it to a post here. First you need to prepare the HDD to install Yosemite on. I recommend using and empty HDD, format it to GPT, with 1 partition formatted to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Now go through the setup and select your newly created partition. Grab a cup of coffee or something. - 3. Installing a bootloader. After installation the system will reboot. Boot from the USB installer again. When you arrive at the Clover boot loader screen, select the partition you have just installed OS X to, and press enter. OS X will load, go through the system setup. The first thing you want to do is install a bootloader to the HDD. I have attached the files needed for Clover. A guide on how to install Clover can be found at the bottom of this post, under the spoiler. You can also use Clover Configurator, makes things a lot easier. - 4. Patching AppleHDA.kext A guide on how to do this can be found here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/283754-patched-applehdakext-for-codecs-idt-92hd81b1x5-92hd91bxx-92hd87b13-92hd87b24-92hd87xx-etc/ Pinconfig: - 5. AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext It is no longer needed to change the device id in the DSDT. Former patch method can still be found in the old guide. I have included a file called: aifc09022015.sh, just drag and drop it in the Terminal window, type "y" to patch the kext. This patch will make the following changes in the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri: Original section: 04 00 66 01 01 03 01 01 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 40 10 07 00 00 10 07 00 00 00 00 00 00 20 50 03 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 05 03 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 40 00 00 00 40 In the second line is the vram, 40 stands for 1024mb. We change this to 20 so that OS X will detect 512mb. 05 03 00 etc is the display device, as you can see, only the internal LCD is defined, so we need to add the HDMI outputs. The default ones from device id 03006601 only detect the display output, no sound. I've taken the HDMI devices from device id 03006601 and added them corrected to 04006601. It looks like this: 04 00 66 01 01 02 04 02 00 00 00 04 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 20 10 07 00 00 10 07 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 05 03 00 00 02 00 00 00 30 02 00 00 02 05 00 00 00 08 00 00 07 04 00 00 03 04 00 00 00 08 00 00 81 00 00 00 04 06 00 00 00 08 00 00 81 00 00 00 More information about this subject can be found here: http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2945-guide-for-enabling-vga-and-hdmi-in-intel-hd4000-gpu/ - 6. AppleGraphicsPowerManagement. Switched to a new model. To edit this kext, copy it from /System/Library/Extensions to ~/Desktop. Now right click on the kext, and show package contents. Open Contents and open the Info.plist with Plisteditor. Now search for the following: Mac-4B7AC7E43945597E Under this, you will find something like the following code (Select the whole IGPU section): Replace it with the following: Save the file, and install the edited kext. - 6. AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. If you do not have an unlocked bios, or the patch option enabled in Clover, you need to patch this kext to prevent kernel panics. To edit this kext, open Terminal and type the following: sudo -s *password* I have included a file called: aicpm.sh, just drag and drop it in the Terminal window, type "y" to patch the kext. You're done. Patch: Old Guide: How to install Clover and add it to the UEFI Boot menu: - Be careful when replacing the current boot loader, your system may become unbootable if you skip a step, or do not pay attention!

    Working X-fi Titanium

    Hi all, I've had allot of problems trying to get my X-fi Titanium PCI-e sound card working with Leopard and Lion. Finally It seems I found the correct plist settings for everything to work properly. I'm using the latest VoodooHDA from here (v.2.7.3) Installed the driver and moved the kext from the Extensions directory to the contents of the voodooHDA loader which can be found here Don't forget to replace the Info.plist file inside the kext contents for the correct pin configuration etc. I removed the loader from my login/startup items, but it will probably work without having to start the loader manually. You can still use the VoodooHDA preference panel to switch to SSE2 after the voodoohdaloader has finished. This helps when you have to play multiple sound sources and you hear the sound crackle and pop To get surround working you need to create an Aggregated Device. Guide can be found here On every boot switch between the Aggregated Device and back to Line-out (Green Rear) while you're playing something (yes very strange) It's a kind of a hassle but you'll get great sound every time And probably important to mention, I disabled my onboard sound card in the BIOS and checked if the HDEF device was missing in my DSDT Hope you can finally enjoy using your X-fi Titanium on the mac just like me!

    AMD Kernel

    Version 10.7.x RC 13


    Kernel developed by Bronzovka (on InsanelyMac he uses the nickname "bronya") which includes the newest patches by Sinetek (the opcode emulator, tool that enables SSSE3 and SSE4.2 for CPUs that otherwise won't support it) and Andy Vandjick (the built-in decrypt tool), and Bronzovka's own original patches and newest fixes, always remembering that he's the developer who first came up with a working 10.7.x kernel for AMD machines. With this kernel, you'll be able to boot with either 64-bit kernel mode (x86_64) or 32-bit kernel mode (i386), and both modes will support 64-bit applications and processes, so no more replacing the Finder or patching XPCHelper to avoid crashes like in the old days. nVidia users must stick to i386, due to a bug in the patchset that will render the system unusable in 64-bit kernel mode. ATI users can try both modes, opting for the one which gives the more reliability. Boot with arch=x86_64 (or i386) and -nossse3bit (except for FX-series CPUs) flags for the best results. There's a version FX-series-specific kernel as an option. Both will work with all versions of Lion to date. Enjoy! Many thanks to Bronzovka and all people directly and indirectly involved in this development.
  6. It's built and tested on my ML system... Source is included... This kext will work always on AMD... replacement for Dont steal Mac OS X.kext (move somewhere after install AppleDecrypt.kext) Enjoy Again thx to Sinetek for the decryption algo's Watch closely in the screen cap... (no Dont steal Mac OS X lol) I've made kexts for Lion and ML EDIT: ML version should work for Mavericks too... EDIT2: New version, Mavericks optimized. This one (under Release Mavericks) is code signed. (no more nag screen stating unknown kext etc...) EDIT3: New version, Yosemite optimized. This new version does not use OpenSSL anymore but instead loads up Apple's corecrypto.kext and uses that. I found the proper way to use Apple's corecrypto interface and it's much faster Also the code is built with Xcode 6.1 and fully optimized for running really fast. The Yosemite optimized version is in the V2 zip file and source, as usual, is included. It should be possible to recompile the kext on other systems as well because the corecrypto interface is still at 1.0, so no change. (Lion / 10.7 or better). EDIT4: Added github repo. https://github.com/andyvand/AppleDecrypt AppleDecrypt-Sinetek-AnV.zip AppleDecrypt-Sinetek-AnV-V2.zip

  8. 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
  9. Hi: I have a Gateway M685-E that I had running 10.7 Lion previously. I needed to redo the laptop from scratch (unrelated hackintosh problems). I now have 10.8 installed successfully but can't boot regularly. When I boot to safe mode, I can log in but afterwards I get a completely "grey" backdrop with a mouse cursor. It appears the system is running fine but there is an issue with the desktop being rendered. All my research points me to my graphics card not being configured. My question is: has anyone successfully gotten the GeForce Go 7600 / 7800 working in Mountain Lion? The best thread I've seen so far is here: http://www.insanelym...o/#entry1842802 I've read about NVEnabler in other places on the net but haven't tried it yet. Has anyone had success with it? I've tried all other command line options that I've read about. GraphicsEnabler, PCIRoot, SafeMode, Cache flags, etc. I haven't done any DSDT stuff yet. Can't do any DSDT editing yet because I can't get working graphics in regular or safe mode. This is definitely going to be interesting since I'll be working in single-user mode until I can get some kind of graphics support in at least safe mode. Thanks for any info.
  10. 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
  11. This post has been moved to the wiki (http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Patched_Kernels) and will no longer be updated. (February 1, 2013) This is a database of currently working kernels for AMD processors. I'll add all the kernels I know of, but if I miss any, please do let me know! Credit goes to me for having the idea and to MadMungo for reading my mind and posting it. OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Bulldozer users: Sinetek's test 1 kernel has been reported to work. Best working for all (The following CPUs are known to work: Athlon II x2 and x4, Phenom II x4 and x6, Pentium D.) except Bulldozer at the moment: AnV 10.8.2 amd_kernel. There are also some 10.8.2 kernels compiled by Sinetek, most notably mach_sse42_only. Mach_sse42_only requires the boot flag -nossse3bit and AnV's patched corecrypto.kext. Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Bronzovka has just compiled a 32 OR 64-bit kernel space 64-bit user land 10.7.4 kernel. With the arch=i386 flag, GPUs should be working with no graphics issues! This kernel seems to have the instant reboot problem too on Bulldozer/Piledriver. The only working 64-bit kernel for Lion at the moment is the 10.7.4 legacy_kernel compiled by IiTz ShAnE. This kernel requires the -nossse3bit bootflag. R:A:W:X86's 10.7.4 kernel works, as far as I know, about the same as theconnactic's kernel below. Theconnactic has compiled a 10.7.5 kernel that boots in 32-bit mode on CPUs that don't support SSSE3 and in 64-bit mode on those that do--Bulldozer/Piledriver/Fusion included! If you're booting in 32-bit mode, you must, after backing up the original, replace /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/ with this one from DP2. The bootflag arch=i386 also must be used for 32-bit mode. Lastly, so apps won't refuse to open after a few minutes (thanks to xpchelper being crashy), follow these instructions. (originally written by ghostec of InfiniteMac and mercilessly modified my me) BronzovkAnVoodoo is another 32-bit only AMD 10.7.4 Lion kernel... Needs the xpchelper fix. (above) Some more of Bronzovka's kernels (v4, v5, and two others, all 10.7.3), and another (v6, 10.7.4)... These all need the xpchelper fix. (above) Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard AnV's 10.6.8 legacy kernel with SSE3 emulator. Runs in 32-bit kernel space and 64-bit user land. This is the kernel to use unless you want to try the experimental full 64-bit kernel below compiled by Sinetek. Nawcom's legacy 10.6.8 kernel runs in 32-bit kernel space and 64-bit user land as AnV's kernel above. I'm not sure how it differs from AnV's kernel, but I've used both without issues. Full 64-bit 10.6.8 kernel with SSSE3 emulator for 64-bit kernel space on non-ssse3 CPUs. Compiled by Sinetek. A bunch of Nawcom's older kernels can be found here. 10.6.0 kernel compiled by modbin. I know nothing about this kernel except that it's recommended for AMD and Pentium 4, but there it is if you want to try it. Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Qoopz 10.5.8 AMD kernel with SSE3 emulator. Voodoo 10.5.5 AMD kernel with SSE3 emulator. Voodoo kernels. The AMD 10.5.5 kernel has an SSE3 emulator, but I don't know about the Intel 10.5.7 one. Mac OS X 10.4 Hi Folks I have been found an old baby, a legacy kernel for Tiger 10.4.11, by Andy Vandijk. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/139297-anv-mac-os-x-10411-xnu-7922520-kernel-tiger/page-2 General information about Tiger Jas 10.4.8 to 10.4.11 AMD: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/87000-jas-amd-1048-to-10411/ Information on 10.4.11 on AMD http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/71972-10411-on-amd/ http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/89760-tubgirl-10410-amd-test-1/ Useful Files Posted to the Board http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/36886-good-info-useful-files-posted-to-the-board/?hl=kext+post Maybe someone would like to install Tiger.

  13. 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.

  14. 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?

    NVIDIA GT540M help

    Does anyone know how to make thesystem FIND the NVIDIA card (double GPU OPTIMUS, intel HD3000/NVidia gt540m) ? I'm trying to make the system work with the nvidia gpu instead of the intel. It has 1gb vram after all and I see the system a litle slow with the intel Hd300 (1366x768) It seems the problem is that it can't read the PCI bus right. Under SL (iatkos s3 or maibe [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] method) the system could see the card, in the specs it appeared under graphics/monitor as an NVIDIA "monitor" along with the intel gpu, but now in LION (L1/L2) it does not. and in the PCI specs no card is detected at all. I'm currently running iAtkos L2, but same thing happened with iAtkos L1, and 10.7.2 combo update applied. I've made several attempts modifing the nvidia kexts with the device id of my card and erasing all other graphic kexts, but the system starts up just with vga mode and no nvidia kext loaded. also installed latest nvidia drivers from tonymac.. Any hints apreciated

    HD4000 full acceleration for 10.8 / 10.7.5

    No, I don't need a dedicated gfx-card. The HD4000 integrated into Ivy Bridge 3770 will do for me, as well as for many others. I thought I'd share the little I know about how to get it to run actually. Depending on your hardware this may or may not work - it works perfectly fine for me. Okay, let's get started by dumping some lines of DSDT: Device (MEI) { Name (_ADR, 0x00160000) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x02) { "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x3a, 0x1e, 0x00, 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } I've got a H67 Chipset here, so I'm using device MEI to change my device-id from 3A1C to 3A1E. Otherwise AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext will block AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext. Device (IGPU) { Name (_ADR, 0x00020000) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x0C) { "AAPL,ig-platform-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x09, 0x00, 0x66, 0x01 }, "device-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x66, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00 }, "vendor-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x86, 0x80, 0x00, 0x00 }, "subsystem-vendor-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x6b, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00 }, "subsystem-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0xea, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "revision-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x09, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } AAPL,ig-platform-id was the key to get the HD4000 kext's to load. No go without it. Lastly you may want to modify AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext. I'm using the macmini5,1 definition, so this is my edit: <key>Mac-8ED6AF5B48C039E1</key> <dict> <key>IGPU</key> <dict> <key>Heuristic</key> <dict> <key>EnableOverride</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>ID</key> <integer>2</integer> </dict> <key>control-id</key> <integer>16</integer> <key>max-power-state</key> <integer>10</integer> <key>min-power-state</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict> </dict> Good luck! :wink2: Cinebench R11.5 is around 23fps with 12A256 btw.

  18. Aggiornamento 16/07/2012: La guida dovrebbe essere tranquillamente valida anche per Mountain Lion, nulla è cambiato, al massimo va cambiato il percorso dei comandi da terminale. --------------- Questa guida nasce come riadattamento e traduzione di una guida postata sul forum internazionale dall’utente MaLd0n, tutti i meriti vanno a lui. La guida è testata con tutte le versioni di Lion dalla DP1 alla 10.7.2, e consente di avere un sistema perfettamente retail. --> Per problemi non inerenti all'installazione di OSX, aprite un topic nel forum Buon hack Di cosa abbiamo bisogno 1- Un sistema Mac OS X funzionante (se non lo avete mettete osx su virtualbox e seguite la guida da lì) 2- Chiavetta o hard disk USB da almeno 6 GB (oppure una partizione sullo stesso hard disk dove installerete Lion, ringrazio Friestok e marcus82 per il suggerimento ) 3- Il package Extra per Lion - Extra_Folder 4- Il file .app di Lion/ Mountain Lion (n.b. se hai una versione .dmg estrai il contenuto sul desktop, non chiedete dove trovare questo file, grazie) 5- Chameleon 2.1 r2059 oppure cercate una versione aggiornata dal topic ufficiale http://www.insanelym...howtopic=231075 Procedura 1) Aprire Utility Disco, selezionare la vostra periferica USB e cliccare sul tab Inizializza. Selezionare Mac Os Extended (Journaled) e cliccare nuovamente su Inizializza. 2) Spostate il file Install Mac OS X Lion.app sul Desktop (se il vostro file ha un altro nome, rinominatelo così Mac OS X Lion) 3) Aprire il Terminale e scrivere: (oppure montate il file con doppio click) open Desktop/Install\ Mac\ OS\ X\ Lion.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg Attendere la fine del processo 4) Sempre da Terminale, scrivere: (oppure montate il file con doppio click) open /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg 5) Da Utility Disco, cliccate su Ripristina, trascinare Mac OS X Base System su Sorgente e la chiavetta USB su Destinazione, cliccare nuovamente sul pulsante Ripristina. Questa operazione può richiedere alcuni minuti. Una volta finito il ripristino l'usb cambierà automaticamente nome diventando Mac OS X Base System (se non è così, avete sbagliato qualcosa) 6) Ora entrare nell'usb, dentro la cartella /System/Installation cancellate il link Packages e create una cartella con lo stesso nome, Packages. 7) Aprite il Terminale e scrivete: open /Volumes/Mac\ OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages 8) Copiare tutti i file da /Volumes/Mac OS X Install ESD/Packages nella cartella Packages che avete appena creato. 9) Una volta finito il processo di copia, lanciate ed installate "Extra Folder" e "Chameleon" scaricati in precedenza. Ricordate di cambiare la destinazione di installazione, altrimenti vi ritroverete i file sul disco e non sulla usb... 10) Controllate di avere la cartella /Extra/Extensions nella vostra usb, ed inserite al suo intero il nuovo FakeSMC V4.2 ed eventuali altri kexts utili. FINE Arrivati a questo punto avrete la vostra USB con l'installer di Lion/Mountain Lion pronto ad essere avviato. Non avete bisogno di cd di boot, chameleon sarà già installato sull’usb o sull’hard disk dove avete fatto l’operazione. -------------- Installazione su MBR: (solo per chi vuole installare su hard disk MBR) per Lion: Scaricate questo zip --> OSInstall_Lion.zip per Mountain Lion: Scaricate questo zip --> OSInstall_MountainLion.zip Aprite l'usb ed inserite il file OSInstall in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/ Sempre nell'usb, inserite il file OSInstall.mpkg in /System/Installation/Packages Ora potete installare Lion/Mountain Lion anche su hard disk formattati in MBR Possibili problemi * L'installazione spesso sembra andare in freeze, sembra bloccarsi prima di aver finito. Non preoccupatevi, nel 99% dei casi riuscirete a finire l'installazione anche se vedete la barra di avanzamento bloccata. Cliccate semplicemente un tasto del mouse esterno. Oppure attendete la fine del processo di installazione, al termine il pc si riavvierà automaticamente * Il file mach_kernel spesso non viene copiato nell'usb, o magari finisce nella cartella Extra. Inseritelo nella cartella radice ‘/’ altrimenti al boot avrete un errore. Per trovare il file mach_kernel: sul file di installazione di Lion, in formato .app, Click desto --> mostra contenuto pacchetto Entrare nella cartella Contents --> SharedSupport --> Doppio click su InstallESD.dmg Alla fine del processo si apre una cartella, che al suo interno conterrà anche mach_kernel. Il file mach_kernel è un file nascosto, usate ShowAllFiles per visualizzarlo. Ora vi basta copiare il file mach_kernel nella vostra usb. * Per motivi non chiari la tastiera interna dei laptop non viene riconosciuta dopo l'installazione, e quindi non si può procedere ai passi iniziali di configurazione. Per risolvere questo problema ci sono due modi: O collegare anche per un secondo una tastiera usb, la tastiera interna nel laptop verrà riconosciuta e potrete usarla Oppure aprire il file /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup Assistant.app/Contents/Info.plist e modificarlo così <string>DeviceSection</string> <string>KeyboardTypeSection</string> * Se avete una cpu Sandy Bridge, potreste avere un kernel panic dovuto alla cpu, in particolare viene segnalato un kernel panic su AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. In tal caso basta inserire il kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext nella cartella /Extra/Extensions. Altrimenti provate ad avviare l'usb con Lion / ML tramite Andy boot cd, oppure HackBoot V7. * Se seguite la guida da un sistema inferiore a Snow Leopard, potreste aver dei problemi ad installare Chameleon, ed in quel caso difficoltà ad avviare l'installazione. Non resta che seguire la guida da un sistema diverso (consigliabile almeno Snow Leopard 10.6) Post installazione Dopo l’installazione, bootate Lion dalla chiavetta USB usata per installare il sistema, chameleon deve essere installato sull’hard disk di Lion (chameleon può avviare ogni sistema operativo, windows o linux) 1- Copiare la cartella Extra nella root dell'hard disk 2- Installare Chameleon (nella partizione di OSX) 3- Inserite l'smbios adatto al vostro hack iMac 9,1 >>> Intel Core 2 Duo ("Penryn") iMac 10,1 >>> Intel Core 2 Duo ("Wolfdale") iMac 11,1 >>> Core i5, o Core i7 ("Nehalem") iMac 11,2 >>> Intel Core i3 o Core i5 ("Clarkdale") iMac 11,3 >>> Intel Core i3, Core i5, o Core i7 ("Clarkdale, Lynnfield") iMac 12,1 >>> Intel Core i5 o Core i7 ("Sandy Bridge") iMac 12,2 >>> Intel Core i5 o Core i7 ("Sandy Bridge") MacBook 2,1 >>> Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile ("Merom") / Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950 MacBook 4,1 >>> Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile ("Penryn") / Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 MacBookPro 4,1 >>> Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile ("Penryn") / NVIDIA GeForce MacBookPro 6,1 >>> Intel Core i5 o Core i7 Mobile ("Arrandale") / NVIDIA GeForce e Intel HD Graphics MacBookPro 8,1 >>> Intel Core i5 o Core i7 Mobile ("Sandy Bridge") / Intel HD Graphics 3000 Graphics MacBookPro 8,3 >>> Intel Core i7 Mobile ("Sandy Bridge") / AMD Radeon HD e Intel HD 3000 Graphics MacPro 3,1 >>> Intel Xeon serie 5400 ("Harpertown") / Core2Quad MacPro 4,1 >>> Intel Xeon serie 3500 o 5500 ("Bloomfield, Gainestown") / Core i Nehalem/ Quad Core HT / Line 9xx MacPro 5,1 >>> Intel Xeon W3530, W3565, W3680, E5620, X5650, or X5670 ("Bloomfield, Westmere") / Core i Nehalem/ Quad o Six Core HT / Line 9xx 4- Opzionale: Per lo speed step e fix per il riavvio usate Chameleon Aggiungete in com.apple.Boot.plist - (questo file deve trovarsi nella cartella Extra, Per le nuove versioni di chameleon dovrà chiamarsi org.chameleon.Boot.plist) <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> N.B.

Installare il kext IntelCPUMonitor, ed ovviamente fakeSMC (necessario per avviare un qualsiasi sistema hack). Installare un tool per monitorare la temperatura come iStat Menus oppure SMC Monitor (o altri). Ora non dovete fare altro che configurare il vostro programma. La temperatura della cpu è nella norma quando non supera i 75° (in full load). (segnalatemi eventuali problemi, link non funzionanti, ecc)

    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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. THE BEGINNING As you folks can see in my signature, i'm an AMD hackintosher. That means that, some time in the past, i have the clever idea to invest some money on a cheap piece of hardware that nonetheless gave me lots of computational happiness, with (most of the times) little or no less performance compared to my friends' much pricier intel rigs, especially in day-to-day tasks. That means, unfortunately, that my times of hackintoshing have been giving me equal doses of fun and frustration, and all fun comes exclusively from OSX. Everyone who frequently reads OSX86 forums know by now that AMD machines are at the bottom of the chain food in the mackintosh world. OSX running on AMD could be already a dead subject, if there wasn't very skilled people working very hard (Q: Wanna know what "hard" means? Write an on-the-fly sse3 emulator!) for it to be possible. However, even with the talent and industriousness of those pro-AMD good people, well... sometimes the road comes to a dead end and that was kind of the case: the seventh iteration of OSX, Lion, added a new CPU instruction to the recipe, the ssse3 (believe, my friends, it is not just sse3 with one more "s"). This, by itself, put every AMD CPU but the newest ones, called Bulldozers or FX-Series, out of the party. Or that could have been the case, if we AMD user weren't so stubborn. Slowly, heterodox solutions popped here and there to make Lion roar on AMD machines. Better saying, almost like that: running strictly 32-bit, even on the Bulldozer machines, without support to many cool features like iCloud (Oops, i say it!) or even the stock Finder, this Lion err... Meows. So that was the situation. While Intel users lived in the safe and confortable Palaces of Vanilla, we're from AMD side were left behind in the Wild Land of Doing It Ourselves. INTO THE WILD The famed and almost universally accepted theories of Charles Darwin, the Theory of Evolution of The Species and of natural selection proposes that, in the nature, only the fit survive and procreate. No, maybe that's what people usually think that Darwin stated, but anyway: the fact that we AMD hackintoshers have almost no support to make our machines work with the beloved OSX, except for a few good souls and great minds that develops cool things to support our hardware, this fact made us to either give up or read a lot and learn a lot: an authentic process of selection similar to the one that suposedly made the bacteria turn to plants, then to plants, than to, than to. There are people at the Intel side of the mountain that cannot tell the user library from the system one, and lots of them had built their machines using that uni and multi pets. That is neither bias, nor intends to be an insult out of pure envy (but i concede that the envy exists indeed, at least inside me): the AMD users that were lazy, incompatible with computers or just wanted something to work effortlessly so they could work hard on anything else, these now are either using Windows again, changed to Intel or (the more intelligent choice) bought a Mac. Indeed, a couple of months after the first useful AMD kernel for OSX Lion came out, a guy whose nickname is RAWX86 developed a kernel which made possible (for Bulldozer CPUs only, that's it) run Lion flawlessly, with 64-bit app support and all the small things. All the small things except the cloud-related ones. As always with AMD, with success comes frustration. INTERLUDE Besides my AMD desktop computer, i own a small and cheap Asus netbook, as you can also see in my signature. Like AMD, its Intel Atom CPU is not natively compatible with OSX and, even being supported for a while during the early Snow Leopard times, it's not any longer, and cannot run the vanilla kernel. However, Intel is Intel and, when coupled with OSX, the happy ending can sometimes be troublesome to achieve, but is as certain as the success of a new Apple device: the patches work somewhat better, since the CPU supports the same instructions of all modern Intel processors, and has a very closely related architectural design. Therefore, my little Asus can run versions of OSX as new as the last one, Mountain Lion 10.8.1. But not without its measure of woes: it was a real pain to get iCloud, FaceTime and other cloud features to work. Indeed, it ain't easy for anyone that runs a hackintosh and some indispensable steps must be accomplished for these features to be used: 1) You ought have a built-in ethernet working properly. I'm not saying just using the famed Chamaelon boot flag "EthernetBuiltIn=Yes". This, buddy, is not enough: you have to effectively configure your hardware so your LAN card is properly recognized by the OS, with a corrected kext loaded to it and assigned to the network interface assigned to en0. Do your homework! That, alone, solve all App Store and iTunes Store issues, even for AMD hacks. 2) You must get a valid serial number, so the Apple servers think they're talking with a real Mac. Do you really thought the Cupertino Colossus wouldn't have its beautiful paradisiac garden just without any fences? But you can dodge them using a very cool app called Chamaleon Wizard - google is your friend! - to generate a file called smbios with a (hopefully) valid serial number. This, along the first step, should be enough for everyone to have the full array of Apple cloud features. But is not. It was not enough for me and my little Atom CPU (speed-wise, it should be called Animal Traction, but does not matter, i love it, specially because it was very pocket-friendly). It was not enough for my AMD computer also, but let's left it aside for a while. I, frustrated and a little amused by the difficulty (remember that talk of natural selection) resorted to various additional, some of them quite unorthodox, like trying various versions of symbioses and an obscure method i found at a thread in Tonymac's, of getting a supposedly valid UUID (take a look: http://www.famkruith...et/uuid/uuidgen). Not needed to say, nothing worked. THE REAL CAGE OF THE LION Most people that posts in OSX86 forums know meklort, right? Should exchange some words with him: the guy is a genius. He, alone, solved the iCloud issue for almost every Atom OSX computer. At least in Mountain Lion: i don't know if he's done something about it for Lion. Theoretically, it should work. He addressed the problem with a single and very reasonable insight: why apple should give all of the amazing features of OSX out with the open-source XNU kernel? Nah, it could be that way. Something will be missing, precisely that something that, among other things, makes iCloud and related goodies tick. So he came out with his own patched kernel for 10.8: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/863180/kern...ocache.patched (if you have 10.8.1, try this one: mach_kernel_Atom 10.8.1(dev).zip). The patches weren't apllied to the source of the open-source XNU; instead, they were binary patches. And, pure magic, all started to shine: iCloud, FaceTime, iMessages, GameCenter. Pure joy. Of course they wouldn't have worked, the kernels, without following the steps mentioned before. Again, you have to do your homework! Would his method work on AMD machines? Of course, meklort told me: once someone writes correctly the patches for AMD CPUs, they could with all certainty be applied as binary patches and should work. I guess it's not an easy task, tough - i, certainly, don't have the skill to do it, and no one showed up with something like that even until now. But i was not prepared to give up yet! MY WORKAROUND TO GET ICLOUD TO WORK ON MY AMD MACHINE Are you still reading? Good! You're a pure breed AMD hackintosher, not some uni/multipuppy lazy guy (okay, call me envious, and no offense at all to the puppies owners, they're great tools to get the work done). Why did i talk so much about my atom experiences? Because from them, i learned enough to establish a realistic assessment of the facts, which are the following: - On contrary of what most people think, these iCloud, FaceTime etc issues are indeed somewhat kernel related. Recently, i decided to reformat the disk of my netbook, erasing all partitions and letting only OSX installed. The problem was OSX wasn't in the first partition, so i decided to reinstall and restore my system from a time machine back up. I when i finished, i tried to do a call using FaceTime and, surprise!, it didn't let me log in. I forgot to put meklort's kernel back. When i did it, reboot and all went back to normal; - I have to follow closely and carefully the basic steps of getting Apple's web-based services working; kernel tricks wouldn't suffice to achieve success; - The critical moment for iCloud to work is not the log in, is the first log in. Is not without reason that Apple instructs you to set up iCloud, not just "sign up and sign in" like the way of the App Store. In that critical moment, something in your system files are optimized and changed, so Apple can offer you a better and more customized service. At this very moment, your computer is also checked if it's a genuine Apple-branded computer, not some fake thing. The evidence (circumstantial, i confess) is that my netbook is always "signed in" iCloud, even when it's offline (of course, in this case no data is exchanged, but it stays logged in anyway, because it's not really a log in). Once we make through the first set up, i thought, we shouldn't bother anymore with kernels, serials and everything. But how to set up for the very first time, if our patched kernel is refused altogether? That was the way i achieved that, and i can bet that will work for everyone. You'll have to use your friend's Mac/Intel hack/Atom hack with working iCloud, and will need a working network between it and your own computer. I assume you already followed the basic steps for Apple's web services and features: 1) On the Mac/Intel hack/Atom hack, create a new user account; 2) Set up iCloud for this user account; 3) Log both this computer and your computer at the same network; 4) Start the migration assistant (/Applications/ Utilities/ Migration Assistant) in your computer. When prompted to chose which kind of migration, chose "from a Mac"; 5) Since both computers are in the same network, you should see the other computer, select it; 6) Start the migration assistant in the Mac/Intel hack/Atom hack. When prompted to chose which kind of migration, chose "to a Mac"; 7) Select your computer from the Mac/Intel hack/Atom hack; 8) A passcode will appear on your computer; check the Mac/Intel hack/Atom hack, will appear there too. If they match, hit continue; 9) When prompted to chose which files to migrate from the Mac/Intel hack/Atom hack, select under "users" the user you just created to set iCloud, and select "settings"; 10) When it ends, congratulations: you have iCloud working on your AMD hackintosh, like i do. Reboot it, and don't forget to erase the user account you created in your friend's computer. Attention! The method works for iCloud, but not for FaceTime! Apparently, FaceTime does make a live login every time, and every time the kernel is checked. Why am i saying that? First of all, it doesn't work in my AMD. Second, remember when i formatted my Atom netbook and forgot to change the kernel? FaceTime (and Messages also) would not connect. But my iCloud account, previously set up, was working flawlessly. If someone gets a workaround for it, post here.
  23. Download Perchè modificare AppleHDA Semplice, perchè il PC non è un Mac, ed anche di fronte a codec audio che portano lo stesso nome, il suono non uscirà dai vostri altoparlanti semplicemente perchè il codec è stato modificato con le specifiche di Apple per i veri Mac. Però quasi tutti i Controller dei PC sono gli stessi e la compatibilità strettamente Hardware è massima, quindi il lavoro da effettuare si sposta quasi sempre solo sul codec audio: quest'ultimo è l'oggetto di questo Topic, in quanto sarà proprio questo che dovrà essere ricostruito per far uscire l'audio dai Vostri altoparlati! Codec Audio Il codec Audio è un programma che contiene un algoritmo di compressione o decompressione del flusso dei dati audio, che permette di usare un numero minore di bit, ma con qualità, all'interno della banda passante dentro al Controller. AppleHDA è meglio di VoodooHDA? Onestamente, si! VoodooHDA è una soluzione fantastica perchè permette a tutti, o quasi, di avere l'audio sui propri Hackintosh, il che di per se è già un grande successo, e va considerato il gran lavoro fatto dal Voodoo lab e gli sviluppatori che vi partecipano. Ovviamente AppleHDA è un estensione che nasce per OSx e quindi gode sicuramente della grande stabilità che c'è sui veri Mac! Purtoppo non si può dire la stessa cosa per VoodooHDA, che in molte occasioni causa Kernel Panic durante l'avvio, e qualche volta anche durante il funzionamento, e questo è realmente seccante! Altro punto a vantaggio di AppleHDA è sicuramente la qualità del suono, che gode di tutti i miglioramenti software di Osx, mentre VoodooHDA rilascia un suono un pò più "povero" perchè non dispone di tutti i controlli e filtri digitali che ci sono con il kext originale di Apple. E' ancora ovvio, che il Vostro AppleHDA.kext, deve essere aggiustato con le procedure di cui discuteremo in questo Topic, e questo è l'unico punto debole, rispetto al VoodooHDA.kext. Come ci riusciamo? Il primo grande aiuto ce lo danno i driver ALSA di Linux, grazie ai quali siamo in grado di creare il dump (discarica) del codec audio utilizzato sulle nostre macchine, e di conseguenza sapere e risalire alla configurazione del codec, anche se brandizzato dal produttore della scheda madre o del Notebook. Quindi un grazie meritato va a tutta la comunità di Linux. ALSA ALSA è l'acronimo di Advanced Linux Sound Architecture, ed è di solito un componente del kernel Linux (può essere anche un driver), che praticamente permette di avere il suono su tutti i PC dove si istallano le varie distribuzioni. High Definition Audio A partire dal 2004 Intel (e non solo) ha introdotto un nuovo sistema per i suoi controller, che è in grado di riprodurre più canali ad alta qualità rispetto ai precedenti codec audio integrati come AC'97, dove sono diverse le specifiche per molti aspetti, come i canali multipli e i jack da 3,5 mm etc. Proprio questi ultimi hanno grazie alle nuove specifiche i "sense signal", vale a dire la capacità di scambiare il flusso audio tra cuffie/altoparlati, microfono/microfono esterno ecc. con l'ausilio di un segnale che viene dato dal device audio e ricevuto dal software, al contrario della vecchia tecnologia abbastanza "meccanica" e con molti limiti.

  24. i happen to have an intel s5000xvn board and i have read around that installing on this board has issues with sound and such. i have seen someone on youtube hackintosh the board but when i contacted him i got no response back at all. the board has the 5000x chipset and it has Intel 82563EB dual gigabit ports it also has a Realtek ALC260 hd audio chip. also i am running an nvidia 8600gt on it and i have 3 hard drives 2 sata and one ide. also there is 16gb of fully buffered ecc ddr2 ram and 2 quad core xeon e5430 processors. what am i to do to make this install work. what would i sellect at time of install
  25. 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!
