  1. Hi, after a few KP's i managed to get my fresh Mavericks 10.9.4 system working relatively smoothly, but i'm not really sure about Power Management, Speedstep, C-States,P-States etc and also Wake from Sleep is broken. (No video signal on wake). I don't really know about patching my motherboard etc. Couldn't find any pre-made patches. Also i don't really understand whether i need SSDT or DSDT (apparently not the latter for UEFI Mobo?) and I don't know how i test eg C-States, P-States etc or what I need them for. One thing that's a possible "issue" is the Corsair H80i, attached to the Mobo via mini-usb. there's no controller software for OSX obviously. When I had a 10.9 Mavericks working with Sleep, it would wake itself up immediately with GLAN EHC2. This may have been the USB connection on the fan forcing it to wake up but not sure. Currently though Wake is broken as mentioned, so I can't just test that issue by unplugging the USB at the moment) any advice & links would be gratefully appreciated. Presumably first step would be to fix the system to be able to remove NullCPUPowerManagement? thanks J Mavericks 10.9.4 (from App Store) myHack installer myHack AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement patch NullCPUPowerManagement.kext myHack TRIM patch kernel flags: npci=0x2000 dart=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes Realtek81xx kext for ethernet (or might be using EthernetBuiltIn=Yes... not sure, as both present) Envy24 audio drivers for m-audio Audiophile2496 Chameleon NVFileRam kext for iMessage fix --- Motherboard: Asus P8B75-V (UEFI) CPU: i7 3770 GPU: Zotac GT210 Cooler: Corsair H80i SSD: Samsung EVO840 250GB
  2. Hi everyone, I have the following error: I've tried npci=0x2000/3000 with -f, -v and x, one by one and combined, but it doesn't work. I tried an SMBios.plist and a FakeSMC.kext referring to a Macmini 5,1 but nothing improves! I've also tried several posts everywhere here and in other forums, like the ones with -s and mkdir or cd, but they do nothing or are not recognized or something. It just won't let me get to the installation screen! My specs are here. Any lights on this issue?
  3. The myHack installer works great in my 2010 build. Just need some help regarding the software updating. I was able to install Mavericks 10.9 using myHack onto my current 10.7.5 build as an in-place install. Didn't even have to re-install applications. I was able to go to the App Store and upgrade to Mavericks 10.9.2, without asking for an Apple ID. But when I wanted to update the iLife and iWork applications it asked for an Apple ID. If I entered my Apple ID, it says it does not recognize my Mac. Since there no longer is a way to download from the Apple website, how can I update? Will hacking the " About this Mac " fix the problem? Previously under Lion 10.7.5, I saw my specs correctly but ID the build as a Mac Pro. Now it is not even reading my CPU GHz correctly. Thanks EDIT: added topic tag with my motherboard for clarity. marked solved.
  4. I used myHack to create a bootable copy of Mavericks, and then the first time I boot it up, it showed me this: RTC:Only sin And ya, I have no idea what it is, and so I googled it around, and found out it's part of a bigger sentence. People say the fix is to use DSDT=DSDT.fake All right, so it boots a little more, but then i bumped into [PCI... start], of course, npci=something would fix it, I opted for 0x2000 which always fix the issue for me. The problem I'm facing now is this **** [iOBluetoothHCIController][SearchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport! All right, it still boots after stuck there for a few minutes or so, and then a white screen presents itself. I have no idea whether it will then boot or not, I'll be waiting. But I think the chances are pretty slim. If you need additional information, please comment, I'll reply ASAP. Thanks!! Hardware: ASUS P5B Deluxe (P965) Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 (the older revisions without VT-x) 6 GB DDR-800 (2x2 + 2x1) nVidia GTX 660TI P.S. My system is O.C.ed, I will reset to default and tell you guys what happened. P.P.S. I've then tried switching graphics card, PciRoot = 1, none of that work UPDATE It boots with a older GT 5xx, it's a entry-level card with DDR3. I have no idea what happened, but the things I mentioned above still hold true. I do have to boot with "-v npci=0x2000", I still see that bluetooth thing, and I did wait a few minutes. Now I see a beach ball spinning on a white screen, and hear my hard drive spinning. I'll just give it a few more minutes, or hours maybe. (turns out it's fan.) UPDATE Using -v -f npci=0x2000 solve the problem I'll keep this thread open for more update, and then after it's all done, I'll then update it to a better-structured story and figure out more details in the spirit of science (if I have the time)
  5. myHack doesn't validate my system volume and i can't proceed with OS X installation. The OS volume is currently running a UEFI Windows installation on GPT drive. BIOS has AHCI and UEFI boot enabled. I used myHack 3.3.1 and Mountain Lion InstallESD.dmg Thoughts???
  6. EDIT: I moved NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and EvOReboot.kext to /Extra/RemovedExtensions and rebuilt my caches using Kext Wizard. Hey everyone, I'm currently (succesfully) running Lion 10.7.4 on my Hackintosh, but the only thing not working properly is sleep. What am I missing? Here's my hardware: Motherboard: Gigabyte G31M-ES2L rev. 1.1 (BIOS F10) CPU: 2.5 GHz Dual-Core Processor Video: nVidia GeForce 9400 GT (512 MB) Hidden Content - Full Hardware List Show Content Here are the steps I followed: Changed my BIOS settings (HPET to 64-bit, SATA chip to Enhanced mode) To install Lion on my system, I used the myHack installer to create an install disk from the 10.7.4 retail DMG I download from the App Store. After install, the system was basically fully functional. I added in some kext's (See below), fixed permissions, updated caches using Kext Wizard. Used MaLd0n's DSDT Auto Patcher for my board, placed the dsdt.aml file in /Extra From here I tried sleep, but the only thing that happens is the screen goes black. You can still hear the CPU fan running inside. I tried it again after removing NullCPUPowerManagement.kext with no luck. I also tried SleepEnablerNG.kext, but that also didn't work (I tried SleepEnabler on a Snow Leopard install and it borked my system).

  7. Hi, I'm using myHack to create the installer but I always get the same error message... The Lion.app or InstallESD.dmg is not corrupted. I've used different files but I always got the same error. I can mount the dmg file normally and run lion.app. The files only became corrupted after I use myhack. I'm using a USB stick and a macbook running 10.6.8. Any clue of what might be wrong? Thx
  8. Dear all I recently built my first Hackintosh - hence my low number of posts. I was keen to do my own research and not just slink off and, like a n00b that I am ask the community to fix each and every one of my problems, but am at the end of my tether now so here goes... My system is a Intel D945GCLF Board with the Atom 300 1.6 Ghz, some generic kingston RAM, and a Samsung HDD. I used iATKOS S3 v2 and after 4 or 5 goes with the configuration I got a working installation using Starop's method here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=183637&st=220 which installs Chameleon RC4 and EFI 10.6, followed his approach in the BIOS etc. All good. A couple of Kexts later and I even had a decent screen resolution on the GMA 950. So I did the sensible thing and set up an external HDD and took a Time Machine backup of the system. I kept having to use the iATKOS SL DVD to boot though, selecting the install at the first screen. Although on a previous abortive attempt it worked fine with the bootloader options Starop suggested, I had to do a reinstall to take care of some gfx issues, but it was working from the DVD. I installed myHack 1.0 and a result - SL now booted without the DVD. So i turned to cosmetic issues - the myHack 1.0 bootscreens look awful, so I looked to change versions to 1.01 which looked more vanilla. But for some reason I downloaded and installed myHack 1.1. Can't for the life of me work out why I did this. The proliferation of the number 1? Too much Whisky? Let's not dwell this... Since then, my machine won't boot. In verbose it says ACPI not found: DSDT.aml. So I did an erase of the HDD and fresh install from the DVD same as before. Same result - it won't boot and gives me the above message. So I tried a time machine restore from the install DVD - result successful, but exactly the same boot situation. How can this be? I've erased the volume about 5 times, even as FAT32 before puting it back to GUID in case there was some boot partition or something that was still interfering with the install but nothing. Anyone have any suggestions as to how I can fix this? I don't see why installation of SL working (to one degree or another) about 5 times previously but now it just can't create an OSX install that will boot from the HDD or the DVD. Grateful for any insight you guys might have. Thanks
  9. Hi everybody. First I would like to thank all team members and volunteers from osxlatitude.com, osx86project.org, insanelymac.com, osx86.net, projectosx.com, tonycrapx86.com, especially netkas, SuperHai, Kabyl, Conti, voodoo team, Clover team, and all others that contributed and are still contributing in this challenge which made OS X runnable on non-Apple computers. Few weeks ago, I was spending days and nights reading forums and testing different solutions in order to install OS X on my Dell Latitude D830 and make my hardware to be detected especially, sound and Intel Wireless, and after about 3 weeks, I was about to forget this beautiful dream forever, but in the last minute, I gave myself the “last card to try”, I stopped to try with 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 and went directly to Mavericks 10.9 and I can’t believe that this time “It works fine”, finally, I can forgot Windows forever. So, if you have the same hardware as mine and you wanna go far and don’t look back, here is how to get the Apple’s butterfly to land on the Dell’s flower: Requirements: Download Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9 from Apple Store if you have a working machine with Mac OS X 10.6.3 or higher since Mavericks is free now and no need to buy it or to search it in torrents websites. Download last release of myHack Tool from this link (3.3 was used in this topic). Download Dell Latitude D830 Boot pack for Mavericks 10.9 from osxlatitude (we need the NVidia version even if the target machine has intel GM965/GMA X3100, since there is no boot pack for this hardware config which works for OS X 10.9. Download Voodoo HDA driver package installer from this link (the used one in this topic was VoodooHDA-v284) for Sound Card to work. Download VoodooBattery.kext from this link for the battery management. A 8 Go USB Flash pen drive or an external drive. Preparing Mavericks install media: Right click on myHack .dmg file and choose “Open”, the image will be mounted and you will be prompted by its installer interface. Install myHack by Drag and drop it to /Applications folder. Eject myHack image previously mounted in order to avoid confusion. Locate myHack you just installed under /Applications and make a right click → Show Package contents. Locate a folder called “Extra” inside it under /Applications/myHack/Resources/ and move it to trash, it is the generic folder which doesn't match the Dell D830 + Mavericks right config. If you want an Extra folder which works fine download mine from this link Extra.zip and jump next 4 steeps, else Extract the Dell_Latitude_D830-nvidia-mav.zip zip file, a folder called “Extra” will be created within the package files in it. Copy “Extra” folder from Dell_Latitude_D830-nvidia-mav you have just extracted to this “Resources” folder in order to replace the one you juste deleted. Inside the /Application/myHack/Resources/Extra/ folder you just copied, create a new folder, lets call it “Audio_drivers” Extract the VoodooHDA-v2.8.4+Lion package installer.zip and copy the file “VoodooHDA-v2.8.4.pkg” to the “Audio_drivers” folder. Copy VoodooBattery.kext you downloaded to /Applications/myHack/Contents/Resources/Extra/Extensions/ folder. Open the “smbios.plist” file from “Extra” folder in the “Textedit”, and add the lines highlighted in the image above to it if they didn't exist, else be sure the entry “SMmaximalclock” matches your CPU maximal frequency speed, since D830 is sold with different CPU config, mine had a 2.5 Ghz, so, I putted 2500 Mhz, save changes and close this file. Note that this smbios.plist file will make your Dell to be recognized as a 2008 Macbook pro 3, if you wanna it to be recognised as a 2009 Macbook pro 5, download mine Extra.zip, extract it and copy/replace the smbios.plist with it. Open the org.chamelleon.Boot.plist with Textedit and adjust it to fit your needs, the necessary entries are : <key>Kernel</key> <string>mach_kernel</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string></string> <key>CSTUsingSystemIO</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EnableC2State</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EnableC3State</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EnableC4State</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GenerateCStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GeneratePStates</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>GraphicsEnabler</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>1024x768x32</string> <key>SystemType</key> <string>2</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>VBIOS</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>arch</key> <string>x86_64</string> Or download mine Extra.zip, if you wanna a org.chameleon.Boot.plist that works out of box. Save and close the file after editing it. Now locate the OS X Mavericks Install DVD.dmg you downloaded and mount it. Connect the USB Flash to your computer. Launch myHack from /Applications. It will ask you the Root password, type it and click “Ok”. Once done, myHack will ask you to choose a Task from the list, select “Create OS X installer”. After that you will be asked to select install type, choose “Create OS X 10.9 install Disk” from the list. myHack will ask you to “Select target volume to run myHack on it” and click Ok. The install source will be needed also, so, click on “Browse Manually”. Finder will be opened, click on the image mounted in the left panel, its content will be displayed in the right panel, choose then Mavericks as shown the picture and validate by clicking on “Open” button. If all went correctly, myHack will search for InstallESD.dmg inside it and mount it. myHack will ask you if you are “Ready to copy Installation data to target”, confirm with “Ok” button. And will start to copy data to your USB Flash, the process duration depend on your USB transfer rate, for a Kinston DTSE9 (16GB) it took about 13 minutes to finish. At the last 2 minutes, myHack will ask you “would you like to patch installer for MBR support”, the answer is not universal, if you wanna make a dual or triple boot with MS Windows support click “Yes” otherwise click “No” as I did. The last message you will see is a success box if all went fine, click ok. Close all other applications. Left the USB Flash connected. Reboot you computer. Adjusting BIOS settings If AHCI is enabled in your BIOS jump this steep to next steep, else when the Dell blue logo appears, hit F2, BIOS Setup will be loaded, under “Onboard Devices” section choose “SATA Operation” entry and make sure “AHCI” is selected rather then ATA. Under “POST Behavior” make sure Virtualization is Enabled. Save and exit, the system will reboot. This time when the Dell blue logo appears, hit the F12 button in order to change boot order. Once the bootable medias list is displayed, choose USB Storage Device and hit Enter button. Installation The system will boot from the USB Flash and after a while, the Mavericks installer will show the “Choose your language” interface, choose the language and click on the next Arrow “-->” symbol. Click on the “Utilities” menu and choose “Disk utility”. Select your HDD/SDD and partition it to meet your needs, you should create at least one Mac OS Extended (Journaled) partition to install OS X to it, click on “Options” button and check the “GUID Partition Table” partition. (this picture is not mine but similar to the install I did) Once finished from partitioning, close the “Disk utility” and click “next” button, select the partition you have just formatted and click “Install”. (this picture is not mine but similar to the install I did) The install process will begin, files will be copied from your USB Flash media to HDD/SDD, this process will take about 15 to 30 minutes depending on your UBS Flash read speed and your HDD/SDD drive write speed, for example here I had a Kingston DTSE9(16gB) and a Corsair LS 240GB SSD drive, the total process took less then 15 minutes and it should take less then that, but only SATA 1 is detected unfortunately. (this picture is not mine but similar to the install I did) At the last 2 minutes, the installer will ask you if “Do You want to use the generic extra that comes with myHack or specify your one”, choose “Use generic one” and click “Ok” since we made the customisation earlier to myHack install folder. At the end you will be prompted by 3 message boxes asking you if you wanna remove 3 files which cause kernel panic, just click “Yes” for all of them. Install process will end after 1 or 2 minutes later and you will be asked to “Reboot my computer”, click on it, if it doesn't responds click on the Apple logo → Reboot if this last doesn't work too, push the power button till the system shutdown, reboot computer and let the system to boot on HDD/SSD, as usual you will be asked to choose keyboard layout, choose connection type, import data from another Mac machine and create a user account, once done you will land on your Mavericks beautiful Desktop. Fixing non working devices Now we have to fix Sound, battery and Wireless: Wireless card If your machine has the Intel Wireless Pro 3945ABG, by default, it will not work. In my case, fortunately, I have replaced the Intel Wireless Pro 3945ABG recently - after trying with iwiDarwin and other drivers and non of them works - with A Dell DW 1490 802 11g mini card PCI-e adapter, which is detected out of the box by Mavericks and which doesn’t cost more than 3 dollars, so, as the Intel Wireless Pro 3945ABG have no driver that works for Mac OS X perfectly, I recommend you to change it with a compatible one. The Sound card Open /Volumes/yourMacOSXInstallDrive/Extra/Audio_drivers/ and run VoodooHDA-v2.8.4.pkg this will install VoodooHDA drivers and its preferences pane for sound card. once done, close the installer even if it ends with errors. Reboot the system. Go to System preferences, the VoodooHDA preferences pane icon should appear in the bottom as indicated in the picture bellow: Click on it and adjust parameters as shown in the following pictures Once done, click on “Previous” arrow to return to system preferences and choose “Sound”, adjust values as indicated in the following pictures and especially don't forget to check the checkbox “Show volume in menu bar”. At this stage the volume icon should appear in the menu bar and both speakers and internal/external micro should work. The battery indicator It should work out of box since we included VoodooBattery.kext in myHack extra folder, all what we should do is to go to System preferences → Energy saver, and check the checkbox “Show battery status in menu bar”, once done the battery status will be shown in the menu bar. For the Intel Graphics Card If you prefer the resolution that causes eye pain, then, open the file /extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist located under your install partition in Textedit and add or edit this two lines to it before the line that starts with </dict>: <key>Graphics Mode</key> <String>1600x1200x32</ String> N.B: this is the maximum resolution I could gate even if this Graphics card displays 1900x1200x32 under Windows, and if you go to [About this mac] --> [Display] section, your Graphics will be detected as Intel GMA X3100 or Intel 965GM 64 MB of Shared System Memory only, whereas, it is supposed to support up to 384 Mo according to Intel. I have to mention that all other things work fine and no need for USBBusFix/UHCIaquire/EHCIreset Flags in chameleon boot playlist /extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist, I tried different USB Flash drives, an USB Camera and external USB HDD & SSD drive, and all of them work fine, the transfer rate from/to USB Flash is reasonable, except if there is a solution that can make it tripled or quadrupled, I will be the first to try, how knows? The only thing that I am not satisfied with is the boot and shutdown process that are slow even than windows, and only SATA 1 is detected with a transfer rate of 160MB write, 168MB read which is not normal especially with Corsair Force LS 240GB, I hope some one can give us a solution that let Dell D830 work with SATA 2 (3Gb/s) under Mavericks!!! Good luck, have a nice weekend and hack
  10. I just want to let you know that myHack + Mavericks works well on DELL Precision T1650 machine. Only videocard replacement (from ATI FirePro) needed to nVidia Geforce 210 2 GB. Sleep / Restart / Shutdown works well & system in rock solid. Tutorial coming soon.
