  1. Hi everyone. I installed MacOS High Sierra on my computer 3 months ago, in January. After a long way to get the computer fully working now I'm facing a new problem: imagine I'm working or doing something in my computer and it suddenly freezes and I have to restart it. There's no reason why the computer restarts by itself... Here I also attach my Clover EFI folder in case you need it (it doesn't allow me to attach it so here i give you the link: https://mega.nz/#!92xCiLDZ!WY1F55ZvuP-9WW369EP9KY-3hNLt5sWUgJDxPrbgpPM . Thank you in advance.

If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX El Capitan, Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of macOS Sierra – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the macOS Sierra Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.12 to – For me, I used a 500GB HDD to install 10.12 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor.

Your USB should be at least 8GB and a USB 3.0 drive is preferred. Kingston sells an 8GB USB 3.0 drive for less than 10 euro. Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Make sure that the disk you choose to use doesn't contain anything that you want to keep, because the following tutorial will purge everything on the drive. Open Finder - Applications and right-click on Install macOS Sierra and select Show Package Contents. Open Contents - Resources. Open a Terminal window thru Applications - Utilities - Terminal. In the Terminal window type sudo followed by a space. Drag the createinstallmedia file from the finder window opened in Step 4 to the Terminal Window. Type --volume followed by a space.

  5. Hi all... I saw a thread about getting Tiger on VirtualBox and was interested in it, so i downloaded the ISO and set it up in VirtualBox. The only problem is, it won't install. It boots the installer, but then it won't get any further than that. It either a) goes to the Apple logo with a cancel sign over it, or in verbose mode, it will stay on "still waiting for root device". Any ideas on how to fix this?
  6. Hi Guys, I earlier had iAtkos ML2 installed on my PC(with Windows 8.1), which was working fine, and recently I upgraded my Graphics card(Intel Chipset to nVidia GT610) and also upgraded to Windows 10. Since then, Mac wasn't working. The bootloader would start and sometimes later says, 'Errors Encountered...' and reboots. I also have Ubuntu installed in the same PC, which is working fine. I formatted the HFS+ drive from windows, and tried reinstalling ML2. It would show up some initial things, and gave some lines(as usual as in my previous successful installation), and rebooted automatically. Yesterday, I got a copy of iAtkos Y 10.10.3 Yosemite, and I created a bootable USB and plugged it. As in my ML2, it booted up and asked me whether clover or chameleon, and I chose clover, which again went to show apple logo and rebooted immediately, an USB started again(same error as in ML2 installation), and now I chose Chameleon, the result was similar to that of ML2 installation. I used EasyBCD to boot up Windows and Ubuntu with Metro style bootloader. I also have my quick booting disabled. What is causing the issue? Any Help? Thanks in Advance. P.S.- *Mine is non-UEFI *I tried one thing...I changed my active partition to the partition to which I had planned to install Mac, and booted Mac, and still got the same problem. *The lines which showed up before rebooting in the chameleon bootloader were like, ....Unknown Architecture....Errors Encountered.... The same had happened in my first installation, but was successful

The software is straight forward and installs without problems, the only thing is that after login the wireless app starts up and you have must close it every time, therefore I have made a script to launch the program after login and close it after 5 seconds. For installing the driver go to the folder “E6320 – Wlan_TP-LINK”. Launch the Installer.pkg and install the software, after install you will get the message to restart. Choose restart to restart you laptop. After restart the software will start the Wireless App. Choose you desired network and add it to your profile. Now we can install the login script.

In Clover Configurator Click on RT Variables, Enter Rom and MLB Values from iMessage output from valid iMac device. Save changes to config.plist. Reboot, Sign into iMessage iMessage and FacTime should now both be working. 12. What's working? Just about everything. 13. Finished!

  9. Gtx 970 Issues

    CPU ( Intel Core i5 4690 Haswell 3.5 GHz) GPU (Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 970) MotherBoard (Asus H97m-e) Ethernet (Realtek 8111GR) The major issues I encountered were the graphics and stuttering movement on the screen with larger latency between two stutters. My default resolution was 1024*764 but I somehow managed to change it to 1920*1080 by using a option in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. But my gpu is not getting identified by OS. I did some research on the internet and tried installing NVIDIA Web Driver 343.01.02f01 and booted up with nvda_drv=1 flag but then my monitor went off and started showing NO SIGNAL. And if I boot without any boot flags then I am seeing large amount of stuttering which makes it unable to navigate on the screen. Would anyone please help me to make my GTX 970 work on yosemite ?
  10. Hi, Since this topic has been moved to the Installation Guides section, i figured i might as well make a one. The post information is similar to the previous guide i wrote for the Inspiron 7720, this is mainly because it is easier than writing a complete new guide. Some Specs: Processor: Intel i7-4700MQ Graphics: Nvidia Geforce GT 745M/Intel HD4600 Memory: 16GB Wireless + Bluetooth: Intel Wireless-N 7260 Ethernet: Atheros AR8161 Audio: Conexant CX20751/2 Touchpad: Synaptics - 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 AR5B93. Note: After replacing, your Bluetooth will not work anymore. - Nvidia GT 745M, 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. - FN Keys for brightness (Needs research) - Card reader (Needs to be ported from Linux Realtek_RTS5229_Linux_Driver_v1.07.zip) - So...What does work?: - Speedstep - Sleep/wake - Intel HD4600 with patches - Audio, line out, speakers, HDMI and internal mic, DSDT injection and a patched AppleHDA. - Battery status, ACPIBatteryManager.kext - Webcam - Brightness control with FN key functions. - Touchpad with gestures - Ethernet - 1. Pre-Installation. - Download the EFI.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. Or do it the manual way: I prefer to just open a terminal window and type the following: sudo -s password diskutil list Which will output this: bash-3.2# diskutil list /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.5 TB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Yosemite 189.8 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 4: Apple_HFS TimeMachine 110.0 GB disk0s4 5: Apple_HFS Opslag 1.2 TB disk0s5 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *750.2 GB disk1 1: DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC 1.0 GB disk1s1 2: DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC 12.6 GB disk1s2 3: EFI SYSTEM 157.3 MB disk1s3 4: Microsoft Reserved 134.2 MB disk1s4 5: Microsoft Basic Data Windows 209.7 GB disk1s5 6: Microsoft Basic Data Opslag 526.5 GB disk1s6 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *8.0 GB disk2 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk2s1 2: Apple_HFS Naamloos 1 7.7 GB disk2s2 bash-3.2# In this case disk2 is my usb key, disk2s1 is the EFI partition. Now type the following: mkdir /Volumes/EFI mount -t msdos /dev/disk2s1 /Volumes/EFI You can now open finder and copy the Clover contents to the EFI partition to match the screenshot. Another way of installing Clover: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/305255-making-a-yosemite-usb-installer-w-clover-the-correct-way/ - 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) 100GB, and another partition for your data, can be anything. 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. The steps on how to install Clover are described in point 1. - 4. Patching AppleHDA.kext - 5. AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext and AppleIntelHD5000Graphics.kext This is now controlled by Clover and an AppleHDA injection kext (Used PikerAlpha's method and edited accordingly: Info here. ) Kext to be injected by Clover: AppleHDACX20751.kext.zip Patches controlled by Clover: Old content: Original post and files: El Capitan: For El Capitan the DSDT has been edited to remove the USB 3.0 multiplex patch since it was causing a kernel panic. The USB ports are injected by FakeSMC, as well as the AppleHDA information. Since plist patching by Clover does not work for me for some reason, i have used the Graphics.sh patch to enable the HD4600 with full acceleration. Clover folder: CLOVER10.11.zip sudo bash /path/to/graphics.sh Graphics.sh: Graphics.sh.zip For the AppleHDA add the following 2 files to AppleHDA.kext/Contents/Resources/ and repair permissions using Kext Utility. HDA layout.zip The rest is handled by Clover and FakeSMC. Changelog: EFI.zip config.plist.zip Kexts.zip DSDT_MINI160v3.zip
  11. Well, Ive successfully installed Mavericks 10.9.0, using Niresh's USB Distro. Install went great, I only ran into the root error, which bypassed with just -v -f usbbusfix=yes, nothing worked till I tossed in the -f. I also updated to 10.9.5 using the combo updater, and didn't break anything, no issues with the install. As far as my laptop goes, specs are... -MSI VR705- (Though my laptop is rebranded Nobilis) Core 2 Duo 2.0ghz 3 gigs DDR2 Realtek ALC888 (popping & crackling during audio playback) Ralink RT2790 Wi-Fi (can't get it to work) Realtek ALC 8111C Ethernet (works great) Nvidia Geforce 8200M G (works great) I really don't understand how to install drivers for hardware on osx86. I'm pretty sure "kexts" are basically the drivers compiled into a single file? And I use a kext installer, to install it, and then I resync the cache and permissions? But what I don't understand is what points the OS to using THAT kext for THAT hardware. I've spent days and days reading, and still don't understand. I think its something to do with DSDT is some type of configuration file that points the hardware to a kext or something? Really don't know. I've tried installing kexts and stuff to get my sound working right, and still hasn't changed at all. Also tried stuff to get my wifi working, no luck. The biggest reason I wanted osx86 is for iMessage, which gives me an error when I try to login. iCloud, FaceTime and all that work fine. I installed the NVRAM thing, didn't change anything. Anyone able to point me in the right direction? Edit: I got to the point where iMessage says, it cannot be setup right now with my user ID, and need to contact Apple. Progress I guess.
  12. Run OSX Yosemite on a Dell Optiplex 780 This tutorial will describe the steps to install Yosemite on a Dell Optiplex 780 (this will also works on a 760). The installation goes to the latest version of 10.10, and when there is a new update i will change the tutorial as soon as possible. If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial. I have also included the PDF file of the guide and the zip file to install OSX Yosemite. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra for using parts of their tutorial. I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English. 1. Credits/Sources Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide: Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac And all other forum members who have posted in my topic and helping out the community. 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Optiplex 780 – This is necessary to install OSX Yosemite for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX Mountain Lion. Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy Yosemite 10.10 GM – If you don’t have a App Store Account, then create one to download OS X Yosemite. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.10 to – For me, I used a 500GB partition to install 10.10 to. An PCI Express Video Card – For use with QE and CI Highly recommended. I use a Ati Radeon HD5450 1GB but 512MB or 2GB also works. CLOVER_780.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive and hackintosh properly prepared. Note: number 7 contains the files for clover, you can copy the entire directory to the EFI Partition: 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop computer with the following specs. NOTE: A PCI video card is recommended to use the full potential of OSX Yosemite because the on board video card doesn't support QE/CI. Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM Western Digital 500GB HDD ATI RADEON HD5450 1GB Intel WG82567LM onboard network Bluetooth USB Cambridge silicon radio (works OOB) ADI 1984A HDA audio onboard HP W2207h Monitor 1680×1050 display Apple Magic Trackpad Apple Magic Mouse Apple Wireless Keyboard US 4. Download OS X Yosemite Open Mac App Srore. Login with your Apple ID. Download OS X Yosemite. Done! The Application INSTALL OS X YOSEMITE will appear in /Applications 5. Prepare Bootable USB Drive This step extracts the OS X Installer contents, then installs clover bootloader to the USB stick. Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive: Insert the USB drive. Open up /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility. Highlight the USB drive in the left column. Click on the partion tab. Click Current and choose 1 Partition. Click Options... Choose GUID Partition Table. Under Name: type USB (you can rename it later) Under Format : choose Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) Click Apply then Partition.[/b] Go to Applications and find the OS X Yosemite installer. Right click on the installer and choose show package contents Navigate to Contents/Shared Support and double click on the InstallESD.dmg, the .dmg should now mount and appear on your desktop. Open Terminal and type the following command: open /Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.dmg. Now, open disk utility and restore your USB drive, NOT the drive, but the volume contained on the drive with the mounted "BaseSystem" NOT the .dmg. Rename your USB drive to Yosemite. (not the dmg) You can tell which drive is the USB from the size. Rename your USB drive to Yosemite. (not the dmg) You can tell which drive is the USB from the size. - cp /Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/Yosemite/ - cp -a /Volumes/OS X Install ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/Yosemite/ - rm /Volumes/Yosemite/System/Installation/Packages - cp -a /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/Yosemite/System/Installation/Packages Download the latest version of Clover from sourceforge. Open Clover package installer. Hit Continue, Continue, Change Install Location... Choose the USB, now called Yosemite. Hit Customize and install Clover to the same USB with the following Custom Install settings: ( see image). Download this zip file. Unzip the flies provided in CLOVER_780.zip. Move all the files in the unzipped /Clover folder to /EFI/EFI/Clover/, Make sure to choose to MERGE these folders or overwrite them 6. Install OS X Yosemite. This part is the most time consuming. Using a USB 4G flash drive will help things out quite a bit. Shut Down. Enter Bios via tapping F2 during boot. Change SATA Operation to AHCI (Leave the Booting mode on Legacy! UEFI is not support/does not work.) Click Save and reboot Press the F12 key to choose boot device, select USB Drive When Clover boot screen is visible, choose Boot "Mac OS X from Yosemite". The system will then boot into OS X Installer. For a new installation of OS X, you MUST erase and format the destination drive according to the following steps before continuing. If you are upgrading from Lion, Mountain Lion or Mavericks and you want to keep your files and apps, skip steps a-j. a. Choose Disk Utility. b. Highlight your target hard drive for the Yosemite installation in left column. c. Click Partition tab. d. Click Current and choose 1 Partition. e. Click Options... f. Choose GUID Partition Table. g. Under Name: type YosemiteHD (You can rename it later). h. Under Format: choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled). i. Click Apply then Partition. j. Close Disk Utility. When the installer asks you where to install, choose YosemiteHD, or your existing install. Upon completion, system will restart a 1st time. Press the F12 key to choose boot device. When Clover boot screen is visible, Press F4 (this wil dump your dsdt/ssdt, we don't need it for now), choose YosemiteHD. You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for OS X Yosemite. Go through that process to setup OS X Yosemite. Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet" we will fix this later, go further with the setup process. The setup process will take about 3 minutes. Done. 7. Adjust some settings in OS X 10.10 Once in 10.10 go to finder –preferences –General and choose in show these items on the desktop for. - Hard Disk - External Disk - CD Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock on the left corner and type your password. Choose by “Allow applications downloaded from: for “Anywhere – Allow from anywhere. Close system preferences. 8. Installing Clover on you Hackintosh These settings will install the bootloader to the system drive's EFI partition automatically as part of the scripting. After completion, the system drive's EFI partition will automatically mount. A few more changes need to be made to the default Clover installation: Run the Clover installer once again, select the following things show in the image below. Open Clover package installer. Hit Continue, Continue, Change Install Location.... Choose the USB, now called YosemiteHD. Hit Customize and install Clover with the following Custom Install settings: ( see image) Download this zip file again. Copy Clover Configurator from the zip (CLOVER_780- Tools) to Application and run it In Clover Configurator (From now on referred to as "CC") go to EFi Tab, click mount and enter your password. Move the folder /Clover from the unzipped to your hard drives /EFI/EFI/Clover/ location, make sure to choose to MERGE these folders. Open Clover Configurator and import config.plist(in EFI/EFI/Clover partiton) and edit these values: · SMBIOS: create your new SMBIOS (iMac 9,1) with random Serial Number Then EXPORT config.plist to /EFI/Clover/ of EFI partition Move the folder /Clover from the unzipped to your hard drives /EFI/EFI/Clover/ location, make sure to choose to MERGE these folders. Finished and Reboot your fresh installed OS X 9. Video Fix for HD5450 Copy the Kext files AMD5000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX3000.kext from system/library/extension to your desktop.

  13. Erro no boot mavericks

    Estou tentando instalar o mavericks, mas na hora do boot sempre da esse erro aqui, usei esse metodo http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298132-guia-aio-guias-para-hackintosh/ , usei o chameleon. especificações do hardware: Motherboard: GA-H87M-D3H Processador: Core i3 4330 LGA 1150 Haswell 3.5GHz, Intel HD Graphics 4600 Memória: Corsair vengeance 4gb 1600mhz ddr3
  14. Hi there, I am new to the forums, but am extremely keen to get into running OSX on my pc. I have managed to follow enough instructions to get the OS installed but I must now face defeat as I come to you for help. I am trying/have successfully installed Snow Leopard on my Dell Inspiron 1520 albeit with difficulty. Specs: Intel Core2Duo T6600 2.2GHz 800mhz FSB 4GB DDR2 667Mhz dual channel Intel GMA x3100 80GB HDD set to AHCI (i have no spare since this is a spare computer I use to trial Linux or stuff) Now my problem is, I get a black screen on install, I believe it to be my graphics card. This happens after the first initial boot, I am unable to install kexts or even run the first time setup but I know it is running because I can hear the pop of the volume as i press the Up/Down Buttons. I tried installing different versions of OSX (Lion and some from my sisters cd's with the mac which I cannot touch not in 1000000 years) But i get a kernel panic about AHCI. The only version that actually works is IATKOS Snow Leopard. But this is what I get the black screen on. Uhmm oh yes, one time I heard "staying alive" playing with a black screen. and after 10-30 minutes of leaving the computer idle i pressed the power button thinking it had frozen but then the display started working, and I was able to get into the desktop. Silly me decided to shut down the computer. Since then, after ever install, I have had a black screen. Uhmm oh a few times I decided to hook up to my external monitor but on boot the apple logo froze. and the spinning wheel doesnt move. if i try switch back to the laptop screen, the screen bleeds from grey to white. Oh nearly forgot. I cannot install DSDT for my laptop unless theres a way to do it from i boot or before getting into the desktop which i cannot do. umm ah I have tried -x -v DSDT=No GraphicsEnabler both on and off and acpi=no? or 0 whichever one. I am really keen to get it running, Also I use chameleon bootloader but i dont install it to hard drive, when it says select disk i select disk0s2 but it says it cant find the disk. I guess the main thing id like to know is, can i install my dsdt from i boot or before the OS can initialize? I have a 1520 dsdt waiting. Thanks to all! I am willing to provide any information if needed.
  15. possible installation

    I'm new to hackintosh I'm planning to install 10.7.5 Lion on my old laptop ~Compaq presario v6615EN core 2 duo T5550 1.83 GHZ 4 GB ram intel 965 after some researchs I guessed that 10.7 will be good but I really don't know I think that it will appear to be early-mid 2007 thanks for any assistance I don't think that it will go smooth as the BIOS is locked and I can't configure it to go smoothly with OS X unless it's preconfigured
  16. Would appreciate some help

    Firstly I'd like to say this is a great forum, I've seen a lot of help given to lots of people (y) Now I'd like to ask if it is possible to install a Mac OS X to my desktop pc (yes it's my first hackintosh build) and which one would be best for my build As far as I can tell I have a; Fujitsu-Siemens D2581-A5 PC This has an intel 2 core processor Q33 Chipset family And a wireless card that says something about installing on mac with a disk (so no problems with internet) Thanks in advanced to any help.
  17. hi there, I hope I have posted this in the correct place. I am having a great deal of trouble with my hackintosh that I have recently built. I have got the apple side of things installed on a separate hard drive to my windows, and that all works fine, give or take a few minor errors. the trouble that i am having now is that my windows 8 side that is on a different internal hard drive is just giving me errors after errors. here are some of the symptoms: - unable to load itunes, the icon on the task bar appears if it loading up and then stops and goes back to how it looked if i hadn't clicked it. - norton 360, once clicked it instantly says 'Norton 360 has stopped working'. - unable to load most of my apps, music, video, etc. the loading page appears with the symbol for about 5-10 seconds and then goes back to my start screen. - unable to open pc settings. i wanted to carry out system restores, however like my app, it displays the cog symbol, then after 5-10 seconds goes back to the start screen. - unable to run trouble shooter, displays an error message saying it ran into a problem, therefore i have to close. these are just some of the symptoms i have when i am able to access windows. getting onto this screen is very difficult. when i start my computer, i have to access the boot options, and then select the option called Windows Boot Manager. for some reason this has been partitioned on my mac os HDD (mavericks), however when it loads it launched my windows side, and obviously runs my windows drive. if i am successful, i can type my password in and i am greeted with my start screen. alternatlively i sometime encounter a message saying: The User Profile Service failed the sign-in. The remote procedure call failed and did not execute. i then select OK, and the login screen appears a second time. this time if i type my password in and enter, i am usually greeted with what seems like the installation process for windows. it says stuff like 'Hi' and 'Getting Your Apps Ready'. i have followed this through to no avail, and it simply reboots my machine. to get around this i have managed to install my Windows 8 installation DVD, selected the advanced options and entered command prompt. from here i have typed in bootrec/fixmbr. at this point i reboot my machine, boot from the Windows Boot Manager partition and that usually allows me to access my desktop. If i was to boot from the HDD that windows is installed on, i get an error message saying; 'No operating system was found' and then it says to press ctrl, alt and delete to restart my computer. when i boot from the windows 8 DVD, i also have the ability to refresh my pc or even restore my pc. i have attempted to run both of these to no success. i get errors messages saying the drive you have selected is locked. please unlock it, etc. now i am completely stuck??? my mac side is fine, and i can access that by inserting my [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] USB and selecting mavericks from the list. however i need my windows side working. If anyone knows how to resolve trhis without losing my data i will be truly thankful if not, i will have to simply reformat the drive and re-install windows i guess? im not sure how to do this though? many thanks in advance, and please can someone help me with these issues!

  19. I have an HP Media Center m1180n PC. I want to install either Snow Leopard or Lion on it (along with Tiger just to do it). Can they run on my PC? This is what I have: ACPI-enabled ASUS motherboard with AMI BIOS v3.28 (1/23/2006) 32-bit unicore 2-threaded Pentium IV @ 3.4GHz (supports MMX and SSE1-3) 1GB DDR1 RAM RADEON X300 graphics card (it's horrible; was supposed to be a GeForce 9600 GTX but the power box couldn't power it) no floppy drive a generic CD/DVD drive numerous USB 2.0 ports and a firewire port a generic High Definition Audio Device (which I'm guessing means I have an on-board sound card) a PCI Soft Modem a WinTV TV tuner card a USB Logitech laser mouse a standard Dell PS/2 keyboard an IDE 240GB hard drive with 3 partitions: 26GB for Vista, 200GB for XP, 6GB reserved as an OEM recovery partiton also connected is a 465GB SATA hard drive that is used to store user data on. Used to be a Vista drive on a now-dead PC and still contains the OS files on it a media expansion bay Should OSx86 be able to run on this at native speed? What is the highest Mac OS X version that can run on this? Also, is it possible to dual-boot OSx86 with my current triboot configuration (Vista, XP, Windows XP Recovery Console and probably soon, Debian)? Thanks, WindozeNT EDIT: I had no choice in the hardware and currently am unable to upgrade any of it. This was basically a hand-me-down PC.

BCM 5751 LFB worked whit BCM5751 kext Wireless Ralink USB 150 MBPS came whit drivers for OSX on the cd. oke so you can find the IAKTOS S3V2 at their forum google it. i have burned the ISO onto a DVD-R at the lowest speed 4x using imgburn. the computer booted up whit out using any flags! i have formated the hard disk OSX Extended Journaled( MBR) this because i will use a litle program EasyBCD to fix the MBR to dual Boot into Windows! now comes the tricky part here you have to customize your hardware, Boot loaders, kernels, patches,and configure your VGA and Ethernet. to succeed in this part you will need to know your hardware if you do not start looking into it. to get the GMA Graphic Card working you can check out these posts they were very helpfull! http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/267122-1068-on-gma900/ http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/284885-guide-1068-on-a-dell-optiplex-gx280/ i have gotten ethernet working whit the kext found here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/155590-broadcom-5751-applebcm5751ethernetkext/ this post was very helpful worth checking into it! I recently added a Asus Geforce 7500 LE as a Graphics card to the system and i now have wonderful Graphics whit this cards everything works QE/CE resolution up to 1080 tested on my Samsung TV connected trough DVI. i Updated the system to 10,6,8 trough the software update in OSX it self now i the machine hangs at this message [ PCI configuration begin ] and wont load any further i haven't gotten past this message looking into it still i haven't gotten past this message so i reinstalled Iaktos S3 V2 i used the following options in customize: Boot loader i chose AsereBLN v1.1.9 Bootloader options i chose: 32 bit boot ethernet patches i chose: /extra directory fake SMC ( this is a Must) disabler RTC drop down the menu and choose RTC (32BIT) this is a must because our cpu is not 64bit! modified kernels i chose: qoopz 10.3.0 UUID select this Drivers i chose: SATA/IDE dis-select the sound we will add these later since these give alot of kernel panics installing the wrong sound driver. select PS/2 VGA only select these if you know what you need to select otherwise dis-select this i did not select this! now continue installation this will take up to 30 minutes you do not need to stay whit the computer. once the installation is done you have successfully installed OSx onto your HP Compaq DC7100 congratulation! for your first boot up i recommend to boot whit flag -v -f this always worked for me though. if your computer does not boot try these flags cpu=1 ncpi=0x2000 these might work otherwide try graphics enabler=no this link is very helpful it has almost all the flags you could use trying to boot your OSX instalation. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/99891-osx-flags-list-for-darwin-bootloader-kernel-level/ So i did some research spent a few nights on the computer dig trough google and viewing different kind of forums i finaly got to this page: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/275293-guide-1068-on-a-dell-optiplex-gx620/ this is a very straight forward setup to get from 10.6.3 - 10.6.8 i got everything working whit the information provided by this tutorial i did not succeed into getting QE/CE whit the GMA900 card though but i have seen and read that it is possible to get it working. since i am using a PCIE Asus Geforce 7500 LE I didn't need the GMA900 kexts but search the web and you will succeed! so now that i have an osx 10.6.8 running machine whit almost everything working now my computer wont shut down or restart properly it closes down OSX but the computer PSU stays on whit a black screen i am still looking into fixing this problems if anyone knows how to fix this your help is much appreciated pm me or post it so more people can enjoy this fix. so this osx build was an success i also build a laptop HP NC6320 if you want to know more about the laptop build let me know and i will push you in the right direction i hope i was able to help some people to give an old machine some life since this machine runs terrible and slow on Windows 7 and windows 8 and windows xp isn't that fine either. i will provide a zipped archive file whit the Kexts i used for this build and i hope they will help you out i did not make these kexts i just found them trough research on the net so do not ask me for any help customizing kexts . oke so i found the kext for the audio driver wich is an Soundmax AD1981B ICH6 you can find the driver in this post. the kext is included in the attached archive! http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/222337-resolved-soundmax-ad1981b-ich6/ OSX KEXTS HPDC7100.rar
  21. This is a build inquiry to poke at the possibility of 10.9 on this machine. Current build: ET2702IGTH 2560x1440p IPS screen with HDMI input/output (output is OS specific, the HDMI in isn't OS dependant) - Multi-touch screen (might be of use for DAW/video editing programs). Touch screen - I know OSX has native drivers for a generic interface (there's that one modding team who've been selling "mac pro tablets" for some time now) but not certain it will actually work as intended. i7 4770 (non-K) processor, Intel B85 Chipset AMD HD8890A 2GB GDDR5 (in PCIe 3.0 mode in recent BIOS) 2TB HDD 16GB (upgraded) Kingston HyperX 2133 PnP memory (clocks at 1600, the PnP memory was cheapest upgrade) Audio Chipset: Realtek ALC887 (DAW will use a Avid Firepro sound card) USB 3.0 ports, Thunderbolt, etc... And further specs can be found >here< What I'm wondering is, will OSX install on this beast of an AIO? The 8890A isn't a standard mobile GPU, which might make the setup a bit weird - not certain what the card's based off of (some say it's equal to an HD7850). BIOS is current and has been given more features over time. Second, is OSx86 worth it for this machine? I have noted a few Win programs do in fact compare equal to their OSX counterparts, the only difference is OSX being a realtime-OS whereas Win needs ASIO (and a slight bugger to setup sometimes). Eventually I'd like to do a little more than just music, but it still seems easier on OSX. I guess with that in mind, this should be asked too: is Apple still bastardising its pro-branded apps? Is it a good idea to patch the BIOS (it is UEFI), or is it even necessary? At current I don't have a copy of OSX 10.9 (though it is planned, need to research more - which is partially the purpose of this thread). Currently have a few spare HDD's if an external boot is required to install from a Win8 to OSX box. Any help, and critical opinions, appreciated, thanks!
  22. Hi everyone, recently I posted my PowerMac G5 Mod up to the insanely mac forums and though I was generally happy with the mod I have started to think I could off integrated it much better. Heres the thing, the reason why I like apple is the clean no fuss design they incorporate into there machines, the reason I like PC's is the unbeatable value of the hardware I wanted to mix the two together seamlessly, add my own little touch too it and have fun creating a unique machine that has everything I wanted in a desktop computer and more. My previous attempt (pictures Bellow) has the value of PC hardware, the sort of look of a mac and it was fun to make, but again those two elements just didn't mix well I don't think, so i have set out to attempt one more G5 mod to try to get it right. Here is my previous G5 Mod. This time around I will be focusing on the materials used during the Mod and final finishing touches such as using black neoprene tubing instead of PVC and trying to convert more of the original features instead of replacing them ( ACBell PSU, PowerButton, Back PCI slots, original Molex/SATA cables, Delta fans Ect) I have started with converting the original ACBell G5 PSU, Even going so far as to keep the original white power inlet and the original PSU fans. UPDATE: Yesterday I finally got my hands on a 1.8GHz Dual Powermac G5 I started by striping all the original G5 components out at work. i removed all the G5 motherboard standoffs bar one that supports the midsection divider, the longer standoffs where disgarded and the six shorter ones where reused as standoffs for my Z77 motherboard. once stripped I placed the case and all the metal pieces in the bath and used the shower on a high setting to clean the case and dividers. Next I focused on lining the motherboard up with the PCI slots on the G5 and fitting the back CPU fans. I found using dual slot graphics card helped a lot in lining the standoffs and PCI slots up. once lined up I will use pen ink on the flat bottom of the standoffs and line the board back up once five minutes have passed I will remove the board and standoffs and place a blob of epoxy resin on the standoff markings, reinsert the board and standoffs and wait for it to set. Next I though a little bit of cable management was in order. it is extremely important for me with this mod to keep the whole look tidy and neat no stray wires so that it ties in with the feel of the original G5 system For the liquid cooling system I needed a control centre for water tempreger and fan speed / fan control these things are usually not part of a home made water cooling system or are managed through separate systems, fan speed controllers and thermometers not software, however I recently got my hands on a damaged Antec kuhler h2o and spotted a opportunity, it came with the black fan cables cut and leaking, I opened the unit cleaned out the gunk and made it water tight, thankfully there where printed pinouts on the board for the PWM fans so I hooked up a spare PWM fan and loaded the Antec Chill Control software and it all works great once properly configured the antec unit will be grafted onto the home made water cooling loop I own, plus with the addition of two 120MM PWM fans hopefully I will have a fully automated software controlled water cooling loop for my hack .
  23. Salut à tous! Aujourd'hui je vais vous proposer un tutoriel concernant le barebone Shuttle SX79R5. Je vais vous donner ma configuration système: Carte mère Shuttle SX79R5 Socket LGA2011, chipset Intel X79. Carte graphique Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GT640 Processeur Intel Core i7 3820 8 Go de RAM G-Skill Disque dur Western Digital SATA-III 1To Et un graveur DVD Notez aussi qu'il faut une clé USB d'au moins 8 Go Alors surtout , pour ceux qui veulent voir le site web du constructeur, il y a la liste des processeurs , des barrettes de RAM , des SSD et des cartes graphiques supportés. Cette liste est à prendre et à en laisser, car si c'est vrai pour les processeurs , pour le reste la liste n'est pas exhaustive (loin de là) La méthode d'installation est celle de Niresh (oui je sais c'est une distribution) Première chose à faire, une fois le PC monté , on installe... Ubuntu dessus! (http://ubuntu-fr.org) On télécharge Niresh USB Mavericks (Google est votre ami) On lance la commande suivante: sudo dd if=/CHEMIN_DU_FICHIER/Niresh.dmg of=/dev/sdX bs=1M (à noter que pour /dev/sdX , on remplace le X par la lettre de la clé USB) On attend un peu (15 minutes environ) jusqu'à ce que l'on puisse reprendre la main sur la ligne de commande On débranche proprement la clé USB et on la branche à l'arrière du boitier On redémarre le mini-pc et on va dans le SETUP du BIOS Normalement , on laisse tout par défaut excepté l'extension Intel VT-d à activer si vous voulez faire de la virtualisation Il ne faut surtout pas mettre le BOOT en UEFI car sinon , vous aurez par la suite des problèmes de démarrage... (Laissez-le en LEGACY) Une fois la configuration sauvée , vous redémarrez et vous appuyez sur F7 et vous choisissez la clé USB Vous voici normalement à l'écran de démarrage de Niresh. Vous y mettrez les options suivantes avant de démarrer: -v -f cpus=1 USBBusFix=Yes npci=0x2000 Appuyez sur Entrée , un peu de patience et vous y verrez l'écran d'installation... Sélectionnez la langue souhaitée , puis dans le menu Utilitaires >>> Utilitaire de disques Sur votre disque dur , vous y ferez DEUX partitions , une partition SYSTEM qui commence au début et une autre partition (je l'ai appelée BOOT) qui ne fait que 2 Go à la fin du disque Ensuite , à l'écran d'installation , sélectionnez le disque SYSTEM et cliquez sur Personnaliser Ce qu'il faut cocher: cpus=1 SMBIOS MacPro 5.1 Ce qu'il faut décocher: GraphicsEnabler=Yes (Dans le cas d'une NVIDIA GT640) Le bootloader Chameleon, on l'installera plus tard Utilitaires pour PC portables Et vous validez , et vous cliquez sur INSTALLER (Cela dure 30 minutes) Au redémarrage , vous appuyez sur F7 et vous resélectionnez la clé USB Puis sélectionnez la partition SYSTEM Les options de démarrage: -v -f cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 Votre nouveau Mac doit démarrer gentiment Ensuite , comme vous l'aurez vu , on n'utilise qu'un seul coeur de processeur! On installe alors ce kext: http://forge.voodooprojects.org/p/voodootscsync/downloads/ Comme ça , on est débarrassé de cette option cpus=1 à mettre à chaque fois! On télécharge aussi Chameleon Wizard pour y installer le Bootloader http://www.osx86.net/files/file/242-chameleon-wizard-422/ On installe Chameleon à la méthode Boot0 sur la partition SYSTEM Mais vous serez dans tous les cas confronté à un boot0: error au redémarrage (aïe!) Mais ce n'est pas grave je vais vous dire ma méthode pour que cela fonctionne Vous allez dans le terminal et vous tapez: cd /usr/standalone/ mv i386/ /Volumes/BOOT/ (C'est là que vous direz qu'il est génial Mister Thibard d'avoir créé une partition BOOT) Ensuite , toujours avec la clé d'installation , vous redémarrez l'ordinateur! Vous choisissez une nouvelle fois le média d'installation et non pas la partition SYSTEM et vous y mettez les arguments de BOOT suivants: -v -f cpus=1 USBBusFix=Yes npci=0x2000 Une fois l'installateur démarré , vous allez dans le terminal en ligne de commande Vous taper ceci: diskutil list Vous y verrez un truc comme cela: /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk0 1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS SYSTEM 973.4 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_HFS BOOT 26.3 GB disk0s3 Vous démontez alors la partition SYSTEM en faisant diskutil umount /dev/IDENTIFIER (IDENTIFIER étant dans cet exemple disk0s2) puis vous faites ceci: cd /Volumes/BOOT/i386/ dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 (ATTENTION , c'est rdisk0s2 et non pas disk0s2!!!) Si tout s'est bien déroulé... votre nouveau Macintosh démarrera tout seul! Voici mon fichier de configuration /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>Credits</key> <string>Niresh12495</string> <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Graphics Mode</key> <string>"1920x1080x32"</string> <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>-f npci=0x2000 dart=0</string> <key>KeyLayout</key> <string>mac-fr</string> <key>QuietBoot</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>Theme</key> <string>DType</string> <key>Timeout</key> <string>3</string> <key>USBBusFix</key> <string>y</string> <key>UseKernelCache</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </plist> Et voilà
  24. Can I install Mavericks on this pc?

    Hello, I heard a lot about installing Mac os X Mavericks on AMD machines. But I don't know of I can run that on my pc. My PC is custom build this year in August. My specs are: 8 GB DDR3 Memory from Corsair AMD A8-5600K processor 3.6 GHz ASRock FM2A75M Pro4-M Motherboard WIFI Card Do you think I can run Mac os? Thank a lot for helping me, Daan
  25. Ciao, creo un nuovo Post per installare Maverick su un Olivetti S1500 con Cpu Intel I3 Installazione.... basata su Pandora... allora.... il boot non procede (si ferma sul modulo bluetooth) in quanto il passo successivo è l' start del modulo VIDEO che si BLOCCA ! La chiavetta Pandora è stata creata con il menu 3 (Senza Driver Video) , nessuna aggiunta di file e poi versione mac 9.1 , risoluzione 1, configurazione 2 (osx + pandora) , selezione scheda madra menu 4 (full modules) ma per il pc... (il motivo che instanto i moduli per la tastiera e il mouse non funzionano. ed ora i parametri per il boot.... bootare dalla chavetta e quando compare l'icona digitare (okkio che la tastiera non è italiana e quindi il - è al posto del ') -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 e intanto fate l'installazione
